Minecraft Wiki

Hi, I'm Nixinova, an administrator, bureaucrat, and active editor on this wiki.


I started playing the Minecraft (Java Edition) online demo in November 2012, not long after 1.4.2 came out. I bought a full Minecraft account on 9 February 2013, during 1.4.7. When I play Minecraft, I nearly always play on Java Edition; in particular, I typically play SkyWars on Hypixel or Trouble in Mineville on HiveMC (in modded 1.8.9), or experiment in the latest snapshot (22w19a).

I started playing Pocket Edition on my iPad 2 in December 2012, during v0.5.0 alpha, and played Pocket Edition a lot over the next few years. After not playing this edition for a while, I got back into it for a bit starting from Bedrock Edition beta in October 2018, but only to try out new features.

I received a PS4 in December 2014, alongside Minecraft: PlayStation 4 Edition, which I upgraded to Bedrock Edition on 16 December 2019.

I first played Minecraft Earth in October 2019 during 0.5.0 after signing up for the beta in May, but did not played it much since, and my device was later classified as unsupported so I can no longer play.

I purchased Minecraft Dungeons on release day, 26 May 2020.

Mods used[]

When I play multiplayer (in 1.8.9), I use a variety of client-side HUD and optimisation mods to enhance my playing experience. The main two mods I use are:

  • Optifine: Increases FPS and offers more video options.
  • 5zig: Displays my equipped and held items on-screen, as well as having a customisable mini-F3 screen.

Resource packs used[]

Minecraft 's default textures are too low-quality for my taste, so I use a custom mash-up pack with mostly 32x resolution textures based on Faithful with a collection of other textures for both 1.8.9 and 22w19a.

Minecraft Wiki[]

On the Minecraft Wiki, I usually update and further document Java Edition versions and snapshots as well as browsing Special:RecentChanges. As an administrator, I update protected templates and perform maintenance. I have made over 36,000 edits to over 10,000 pages, created over 3900 pages, and uploaded over 1300 files. I am ranked #2 on the Minecraft Wiki and #102 on all of Gamepedia.

I used to contribute to the wiki under the name HeroBrineNZK (an account I created in November 2013), where I made around 100 edits over the next two years. I created my current account in March 2016, but did not edit actively until a year or so later. I became an administrator on this wiki on 8 May 2019 after a community portal discussion, and a bureaucrat on 24 September 2020 likewise.

I have a bot account called NovaBot which I use to make repetitive edits such as updating links and removing deprecated template parameters.
