I have joined the project! -JEC6789 (Talk | Contribs) 19:35, 29 November 2014 (UTC)


Schematics like here would look better if using {{BlockGrid}}. You may look into Module:BlockSprite, but beware it is written in Lua. Thanks! --Naista2002Book and Quill JE2 BE2.png Iron Pickaxe JE3 BE2.png 12:25, 16 October 2014 (UTC)

Marking unused files

Hi, there's no need to manually mark unused files for deletion. They are already listed on Special:UnusedFiles and will eventually be deleted. MajrTalk

Okay. I didn't know there a Special:UnusedFiles page. -JEC6789 (talk | contribs) Boo! 12:20, 26 October 2014 (UTC)

Congratulations and Friend request

Congratulations for improving this wiki and reverting vandalism! I'll say thank you for reverting mass-reverts by Ablockofore alongside me. A long ago, I've actually sent a friendship request to you, as it may improve our relations, and helping you with the wiki. (Are you male? I need to know your gender in case I have to mention you.) If you need help or for questions, click the talk link or a book and quill, whatever is in my signature. Thanks! --Naista2002Talk
18:20, 26 October 2014 (UTC)

1. I accepted your friend request.
2. Yes.

Outer link in your signature

You can use <span class="plainlinks"> tag in your signature to delete outer link icon from "Boo!" --Dand0 (talk) 18:42, 26 October 2014 (UTC)

I fixed it. Thanks! -JEC6789 (talk | contribs) Boo! 18:52, 26 October 2014 (UTC)

"About me"

I don't recommend using "About me" for things like you do. Its content should be typically a few sentences. Thanks! --Naista2002Talk

Mod developer?

Do you develop mods? If yes, then is the content on your user page documents a mob from that mod? --Naista2002Talk
14:06, 28 October 2014 (UTC)

I'm not a mod developer. And the mob has nothing to do with any mods and is completely made up. -JEC6789 (T | C | S) Boo! 15:54, 28 October 2014 (UTC) with rewrite at 15:58, 28 October 2014 (UTC)

Mob names

As per style guide, do not capitalize mob names, unless the mob is referred to as a proper noun. Thanks! LauraFitalk 14:24, 14 November 2014 (UTC)

1000 edits!

Congratulations for 1000 edits!

The total statistics thing in the “User Profile" is actually incorrect, I've really only made 968 edits, but thanks anyway! -JEC6789 (Talk | Contribs) 13:09, 30 November 2014 (UTC)
These statistics are per entire Gamepedia project, not just this wiki. Where have you edited other than this wiki? --Naista2002Talk
13:16, 30 November 2014 (UTC)
P.S. I have over 3,000 edits on Gamepedia, some 260+ on Wikimedia project, and a dozen or two on Wikia as an anonymous user.
The only wiki I have edited is this one. -JEC6789 (Talk | Contribs) 13:27, 30 November 2014 (UTC)
There is a bug with profiles, see my profile, it says "Wikis Edited 613". –LauraFi · talk 13:21, 30 November 2014 (UTC)
Yeah, I also saw this. Maybe it is an average amount of edits per all wikis I've edited. I edit English, Russian, Spanish and French Minecraft Wiki, and Gamepedia Help Wiki. --Naista2002Talk
13:29, 30 November 2014 (UTC)
See here. I, for exmample, [ have editied] 264 wikis *SARCASM* dand0 (talk) 13:33, 30 November 2014 (UTC)

Template aliases

Just a note, using a template's shortcut name (for example, {{cn}}) is not necessary, they are mainly provided for convince. If you are already editing a page, it is fine to switch it to the shorter name, but there is no need to make an edit just to switch the page to using a shortcut or alias when the outcome renders the same.

Typographical characters

Besides replacing "these quotes" with “these quotes”, there are other typewriter characters that can be replaced with typographical chars:

  • 'Single quotes like this' to ‘Single quotes like this’
  • Apostrophe (O'Connell to O’Connell)
  • Normal space with a non-breaking space (&nbsp;) wherever the line flow must not be broken, like in “Boeing 747”, “November 18”, “Better don’t do this — it’s dangerous” (to the left of em-dashes with spaces all around), etc.
  • (C) with © (&copy;)
  • (tm) or TM with ™ (&trade;)
  • etc.

But don’t replace:

  • ... (ellipsis made with 3 full stops) with … (ellipsis made with one character, &hellip;)

I have a prototype of a wikificator, adapted from the Russian-language one. I also have a table of other typographical characters here — it’s written in Russian, but the table also shows how these chars look.

P.S. We need an official policy on using typographical chars...

Other wikis

Tomas Alaeus

Just for letting you know, there is a discussion on Russian wiki about how to transl(iter)ate the Tomas’ surname: “Алеус” or “Алей”. I shall try to suppress any edit warring attempts over there. — NickTheRed37 t/c (f.k.a. Naista2002) 13:39, 30 March 2015 (UTC)

Recent deletions

I added the location of a few places in the Minecraft demo world, and I was wondering why they were deleted. I know you said to read the comment at the top of the page, and I'm pretty sure I did, but I still don't understand what I did wrong. I'd like to help expand the page, but I can't do so if my things get deleted. –Preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk) at 23:33, 03 April 2015 (UTC). Please sign your posts with ~~~~
