Article series[edit]

If the consensus said for it to be on this Wiki. I think it'd be better to add an article series introductory on every Minecraft: Dungeons article in order to avoid any clash/confusion with the normal Minecraft gameplay. E.g. wikipedia:Law of gravitation; wikipedia:Quantum entanglement. – ItsPlantseed|⟩ 06:51, 29 May 2019 (UTC)

I don't know what you mean, but if you want to contribute and add what you are talking about to the two existing articles and all future articles, that is fine by me. --AwesomeNinja886 (talk) Smithing Table JE1 BE1.png VillagerFace.png Diamond Sword JE3 BE3.png 11:27, 29 May 2019 (UTC)
Oh, NOW I see what you mean. I don't know how to do that, but if you know how and want to contribute, then go right ahead. --AwesomeNinja886 (talk) Smithing Table JE1 BE1.png VillagerFace.png Diamond Sword JE3 BE3.png 11:28, 29 May 2019 (UTC)

List all the sources[edit]

We should list out all of the sources and references so we can be easier to navigate through the links or videos. skylord_wars (talk) 13:43, 11 June 2019 (UTC)

I agree. How should we carry that out? --AwesomeNinja886 (talk) (Smithing Table JE1 BE1.png Contributions) (VillagerFace.png My favorite mob) (Diamond Sword JE3 BE3.png Minecraft: Dungeons Wiki project) 13:44, 11 June 2019 (UTC)
We can make a section title Sources and place all known videos and articles about Minecraft Dungeons in it.--skylord_wars (talk) 09:54, 16 June 2019 (UTC)
Okay, sounds like a plan. --AwesomeNinja886 (talk) (Smithing Table JE1 BE1.png Contributions) (VillagerFace.png My favorite mob) (Diamond Sword JE3 BE3.png Minecraft: Dungeons Wiki project) 15:58, 22 June 2019 (UTC)
Done! --AwesomeNinja886 (talk) (Smithing Table JE1 BE1.png Contributions) (VillagerFace.png My favorite mob) (Diamond Sword JE3 BE3.png Minecraft Dungeons Wiki project) 13:21, 27 June 2019 (UTC)


Should we have separate articles for each music track within MC Dungeons, since it'll be more like other games, which have unique pages per song? - User-12316399 (talk) 23:51, 31 March 2020 (UTC)

seperate pages for vanilla mobs and dungeon mobs?[edit]

mobs in dungeons behave very differently to those in the vanilla java and bedrock games. it'd take a lot of work, but we could have separate pages for the two different games.

--Oreli (talk) 04:00, 9 April 2020 (UTC)

I'd been thinking about doing that, but wasn't sure if someone would merge the pages and forgo any Dungeons-related information saying they were basically the same (which you and I both know they're not). --AwesomeNinja886 (talk) (Smithing Table JE1 BE1.png Contributions) (VillagerFace.png My favorite mob) (Diamond Sword JE3 BE3.png Minecraft Dungeons Wiki project) 22:37, 23 April 2020 (UTC)

Where to go with this project[edit]

The following is a closed discussion. Please do not modify it. Any editors wishing to make further comments should start a new topic.

The result of the discussion was to document Minecraft Dungeons pages in a separate namespace. This was the result of the "aim of the wiki" discussion on the community portal, and as this thread covers the same topic, it would make sense to follow the outcome decided there. See that discussion for the full details. –Sonicwave talk 17:15, 23 April 2020 (UTC)

With the Minecraft Dungeons Beta being available Minecraft Dungeons is getting more attention and this project is growing fast. This creates the questions as to were to go with these pages as keeping them in the project namespace forever is definitely not ideal. Here are a few suggestions as to possible solutions:

  • Keep the pages on this wiki in the article namespace, differentiating them from the vanilla Minecraft pages by using (Dungeons) if necessary.
  • Keep the pages on this wiki in an extra namespace Minecraft Dungeons:
  • Moving them into an actual Minecraft Dungeons Wiki
    • There is already an active Minecraft Dungeons Wiki on Fandom where this project could be merged into.
    • It might be possible to create a new Minecraft Dungeons Wiki on Gamepedia, but this should be decided soon.

All those solutions should be followed by Crossover discussions with the Fandom wiki if possible, to keep the effort on documenting the game together instead of splitting it into two wikis. And a decision should be made rather soon as the pages in the project namespace are not easily found by any readers and currently it's still easy to combine forces with the Fandom wiki.   HorseFace.png Gamepedia icon.png MarkusRost (talk) 19:27, 9 April 2020 (UTC)

I just want to add, that from an SEO point of view it would be the best to keep the content in this wiki, as it is an already established domain and used for Minecraft content.   HorseFace.png Gamepedia icon.png MarkusRost (talk) 19:36, 9 April 2020 (UTC)

I like the idea of creating a new wiki on Gamepedia specifically for Dungeons since it is a separate game from Minecraft. Th3experttrotter (talk) 02:18, 10 April 2020 (UTC)

This relates to the "aim of the wiki" discussion that has been ongoing for a long time. I would prefer documenting Dungeons info in a separate namespace (that will hopefully be searchable) or another Gamepedia wiki that is closely connected with and has a similar layout as this one, like the German Technik wiki. Splitting Dungeons to the Fandom wiki feels too disconnected IMO (due to Fandom's different layout, though future UCP developments might change that), and mixing it into normal articles seems like it would be a mess. –Sonicwave talk 21:53, 9 April 2020 (UTC)
An extra namespace would be searchable. Searching for "Zombi" would suggest "Zombie", "Minecraft Dungeons:Zombie", "Zombie Pigman" etc.
An extra wiki would be a lot of work by recreating all the infrastructure that already exist on this wiki.   HorseFace.png Gamepedia icon.png MarkusRost (talk) 13:55, 10 April 2020 (UTC)
 Massive Oppose including Dungeons info in normal articles. Ditto to what Sonicwave said for everything else. -PancakeIdentity (talk) 00:07, 10 April 2020 (UTC)
Support separate namespace, although I think it should be called "Dungeons:" and not "Minecraft Dungeons:" (unless there are reasons for that latter name; though I guess we can still make namespace aliases). --AttemptToCallNil (report bug, view backtrace) 16:29, 10 April 2020 (UTC)
I'd support separate wiki. But I would like to know how it would work at Gamepedia, since FANDOM is working to unify the wikis of the same game with the Project Crossover, and there is already a wiki at FANDOM. --dr03ramos Piston JE2.gif (talk) Admin wiki[pt] 15:08, 15 April 2020 (UTC)
A separate wiki would most likely mean being moved into the existing Fandom wiki.   HorseFace.png Gamepedia icon.png MarkusRost (talk) 23:53, 15 April 2020 (UTC)

 No onto separate wiki, that is a bad decision. This means, that Dungeons can lose Official Wiki status (Unless contacting Minecraft Staff). This wiki is about everything about Minecraft (including Story Mode), so also about Dungeons.--Treeislife2 (talk) 10:03, 19 April 2020 (UTC)

Sprites request[edit]

I need someone to make ArmoredVindicatorFace.png, PiggyBankFace.png, and SkeletonVanguardFace.png entity sprites. That possible? And to put them where they need to be. Wolfheart lw (talk) 15:22, 16 April 2020 (UTC)

Done already. James Haydon (talk) 04:07, 30 September 2020 (UTC)

Main Wiki page[edit]

Since all the project pages were moved to the Dungeons namespace, what will happen to the main page? It seems really inconsistent because now it is the only thing still part of the original project, and I feel like if it were to be merged with the main Dungeons page it would have to have all the stuff that was on here originally. --AwesomeNinja886 (talk) (Smithing Table JE1 BE1.png Contributions) (VillagerFace.png My favorite mob) (Diamond Sword JE3 BE3.png Minecraft Dungeons Wiki project) 19:52, 24 April 2020 (UTC)

 Support moving Minecraft Dungeons to the new namespace. The BlobsPaper JE2 BE2.png 23:34, 24 April 2020 (UTC)

somthing is happening to the minecraft wiki logo on minecraft dungeons pages.[edit]

I do not know if it is just me but if you go to any dungeons page (excluding the main page) the Minecraft wiki logo says 'Minecraft Dungeons wiki' and the green grass turns brown. Can anyone else see that and is their a variant for Minecraft Earth pages. --Minecraft loot (talk) 00:41, 25 April 2020 (UTC) Minecraft loot

That's intentional (except the main page part), and no. FVbico (talk) 00:43, 25 April 2020 (UTC)
@FVbico: Why don't we have an alternate logo for Minecraft Earth? I think we should. The BlobsPaper JE2 BE2.png 01:22, 25 April 2020 (UTC)

I'm not interested to be an administrator or editor of this wiki[edit]

I am not interested to be an administrator on this wiki for Minecraft: Dungeons related content. I am not currently interested in the game, which is why I've decided that I will be taking a break from editing such content. I'm just not interested. Tag2902 (talk) 21:44, 12 May 2020 (UTC)

Put me to work! :)[edit]

Hi there! I'm Ferthi, and I work as a CTM for Fandom/Gamepedia. And I'm here to help! I play Minecraft with my dad a lot so I'm excited to see how Dungeons goes. I spoke with MarkusRost a bit and he filled me in on some of what is needed, I just want to make sure I've got the right idea before I get started on anything :)

Some projects he brought up:

  1. Disambig/summary pages for weapons, armor, enchantments, etc (I can't remember the proper term... close enough!) that list information/links for those specific items in the MCD namespace
  2. Additional, smaller navboxes with more detailed info for specific types (tied in with the summary pages above)
  3. MCD-specific infoboxes that auto-add categories

My major concern is to make sure that I have page names correct (for all namespaces I'd be working in, like Template/Category/Minecraft Dungeons) so that I don't create more work for anyone. Otherwise, is there any other projects that I can help with? Ferthi (talk) 16:02, 18 May 2020 (UTC)

Controls page[edit]

Since the main Minecraft has a Controls page, maybe we should add one for Minecraft Dungeons, which covers keyboard & mouse, as well as controller controls on all platforms? Dllis (talk) 11:47, 24 May 2020 (UTC)

I've gone ahead and made the page. You can find it here. Feel free to contribute to it! Dllis (talk) 21:28, 25 May 2020 (UTC)


i think this should be a subdivizion of the main wiki -- 21:43, 29 May 2020 (UTC)

Reopening the project[edit]

I don't see the project as finished. There's still a lot of work to do. The Minecraft Dungeons:Main Page, style guide, and many more are not done yet. A lot of stuff needs to be reworked.--skylord_wars (talk) 06:56, 14 June 2020 (UTC)

I agree. Some pages are spammed with speculation or use incorrect pronouns. Many pages are unfinished. The project is anything but complete.--Hedvigsen (she/her) (talk) 10:28, 30 September 2020 (UTC)
THe same could be said for many other projects. They have been "finished" for years now, although there is always more work to be done. This is why Wikipedia never explicitly classifies (Wiki)Projects as finished. Fadyblok240 (talk) 11:49, 30 September 2020 (UTC)
 Support reopening the project. TheGreatSpring (talk) 11:53, 30 September 2020 (UTC)
We can do the same with MC Earth.--Hedvigsen (she/her) (talk) 07:03, 1 October 2020 (UTC)
 Yes. TheGreatSpring (talk) 07:18, 1 October 2020 (UTC)


I propose making all pages part of the Dungeons namespace unavailable to IPs since they are so frequently spammed.--Hedvigsen (She/her) (talk) 10:41, 3 November 2020 (UTC)

I think that too harsh, like i get protecting some of the mainstream pages, but ALL of them? James Haydon (talk) 00:18, 4 November 2020 (UTC)
True. Think we will protect the ones who are most spammend.--Hedvigsen (She/her) (talk) 07:25, 4 November 2020 (UTC)
