New textures[]

Here's the source: https://minecraft.net/en-us/article/try-new-minecraft-java-textures Hugman 76 (talk) 13:50, 7 April 2018 (UTC)

That is just the resource pack to test the new textures, they can change again. Do NOT update them in the wiki, until they are fully released and available ingame as the vanilla resource pack!   HorseHead.png MarkusRost (talk) 13:55, 7 April 2018 (UTC)
But, every texture can change again considering constant updates... For example, cobblestone changed 3 times... Hugman 76 (talk) 14:00, 7 April 2018 (UTC)
The wiki shows the current default texture. A resource pack is not default. They will may be default in the future, but currently they aren't.   HorseHead.png MarkusRost (talk) 14:04, 7 April 2018 (UTC)
Okay, for the moment I'm doing renders of the rest but not uploading them, could we revert those I already uploaded when the textures will be set by default? Hugman 76 (talk) 14:05, 7 April 2018 (UTC)
When the textures are default, we can revert them. But as the resource pack is just for testing, any of the new textures can change again until they are finally released. So your work might be outdated then already.   HorseHead.png MarkusRost (talk) 14:09, 7 April 2018 (UTC)

4J Studios Employees[]

Nothing can really be sourced for the workers of 4J studios besides the credits of the game and interaction via social media. I work for 4J and am trying to help by updating a severely outdated list. Ryumitch (talk) 21:15, 3 June 2018 (UTC)

Please explain[]

Can you explain why you reverted my edit on the Texture Update article? –Preceding unsigned comment was added by MoMoCool2005 (talkcontribs) at 20:05, 18 October 2018 (UTC). Please sign your posts with ~~~~

You added no source for early 2019 and "might be" is a very vague formulation. The wiki is no place for speculations!   HorseHead.png GRASP logo.png MarkusRost (talk) 20:14, 18 October 2018 (UTC)

Do not[]

Please Do Not delete my userpage because I need a link to my Talkpage. 14:39, 19 January 2019 (UTC)

Edit war[]

Please stop your edit warring as you did to 18w07c. I was doing a tidy up to the article. Dovesmith123 (talk) 13:21, 23 February 2019 (UTC)

Check your talk page, I explained to you why your edit wasn't helpful.   HorseHead.png GRASP logo.png MarkusRost (talk) 13:26, 23 February 2019 (UTC)
I do not understand! They do that on Wikipedia. I must not be very fond of the editing rules at this moment in time. Please, could you explain them in brief detail? What can I do to clean an article? I'm sorry, but I am a maintainer. That is my job! Please do not interfere! Dovesmith123 (talk) 13:31, 23 February 2019 (UTC)
Check your talk page.   HorseHead.png GRASP logo.png MarkusRost (talk) 13:37, 23 February 2019 (UTC)
How can you clean an article then? Dovesmith123 (talk) 13:40, 23 February 2019 (UTC)
Check the text and improve bad formulations or added missing content. Adding formation like line breaks to the text if necessary is also helpful if the text is better readable then.   HorseHead.png GRASP logo.png MarkusRost (talk) 13:44, 23 February 2019 (UTC)
Oh! Give me an example! Dovesmith123 (talk) 13:48, 23 February 2019 (UTC)
That always depends on the page, just look at them and see how they could be improved or look how other editors do it.   HorseHead.png GRASP logo.png MarkusRost (talk) 13:57, 23 February 2019 (UTC)


How to add new Minecraft Wiki for other language?, thanks:). -Bananaspread10 (contact) 11:04, 20 June 2019 (UTC)

See MCW:PROJECT. If the project translated enough pages, they can get their own wiki according to the gphelp:Translation guidelines.   HorseHead.png GRASP logo.png MarkusRost (talk) 11:08, 20 June 2019 (UTC)


Hi, I know we've had complications in the past, but I hope you're no longer angry with me. Marinah (talk) 23:36, 18 July 2019 (UTC)

Suspected Sockpuppet of Enderdespawnmite[]

Enderdespawnmite cannot be Unblock, Please expire your block settings from unblock, So you expire from 3 months, so only administrators can be unblocked. 04:20, 1 August 2019 (UTC)

I have no clue what that sentence even means but edsm or their alts will remain indefinitely blocked. – Nixinova Nixinova sig1.png Nixinova sig2.png 04:23, 1 August 2019 (UTC)


Why you removed the section "Under the Void" on the page Void???

It looked like this:

=== Under the Void ===

When you fall under the void you will have 2 more bedrock layers to go. That'll be the top of the Nether. Then in the void under the Nether, you will land on the unknown dimension below the void. It looks like the overworld, but it's purple. When mining in this unknown dimension, under its void you'll be in the End.

I removed it because it's not true.   HorseHead.png GRASP logo.png MarkusRost (talk) 13:52, 22 August 2019 (UTC)


Hello, I can’t edit the talk page on main page, so I write to you. The talk page uses File:Linux.svg (which i requested for deletion in File Talk:Linux.svg) and not the logo File:Tux.svg which resembles the official Linux logo the most. Wikipedia uses this/similar logo in wikipedia:Linux. 03:06, 18 December 2019 (UTC)

Promotion on the Ukrainian wiki for this game[]

I wrote to the Makandlv administrator about the promotion, and in fact he is not opposed to being promoted to administrator, but at the same time he said to contact the manager, and those support you. Can you give me administrator rights here? User 100287610 Звичайний користувач! 18:34, 20 December 2019 (UTC)

I won't make you an administrator on the Ukrainian wiki because there is already an active administrator and there have been some conflicts with you in the past.   HorseHead.png Gamepedia icon.png MarkusRost (talk) 12:56, 28 December 2019 (UTC)
I wrote a little late, but is it possible to somehow fix this situation? User 100287610 Звичайний користувач! 13:50, 29 December 2019 (UTC) I'm sorry, can I get an answer?
Makandlv is active on the wiki so you can easily contact them or me if you need something done you can't do yourself. I don't think the wiki needs a third administrator right now.   HorseHead.png Gamepedia icon.png MarkusRost (talk) 15:32, 5 January 2020 (UTC)


Can't translate the messages? (pt:Minecraft_Wiki:Aviso_geral--Eduaddad (disc) pt.Wiki Administrator 03:02, 4 January 2020 (UTC)

The legal notices should not be translated, as they are legal documents.   HorseHead.png Gamepedia icon.png MarkusRost (talk) 09:48, 4 January 2020 (UTC)

--Cocopuff2018 (talk) 14:04, 24 March 2020 (UTC)

You have been banned from the Minecraft Wiki:Discord for annoying multiple users in DMs.   HorseHead.png Gamepedia icon.png MarkusRost (talk) 15:16, 24 March 2020 (UTC)

Please revert blocked vandal image[]

Hi. User:Enderdespawnmite, who you indef-blocked in 2018, replaced an image with a nonsensical one and this was never reverted. Would you please remove the image uploaded over File:Eat Pufferfish.png? I am unable to do so. ~ Amatulic (talk) 05:02, 25 March 2020 (UTC)


He didn't vandalize. He's just trying to help. - 13:18, 12 April 2020 (UTC)


Hello, I'm trying to create a bot with Pywikibot installed on my computer, and it didn't work (login problem), now I try to use PAWS however I can't connect to the wiki I want, Aether wiki, I think that's because it is not part of the wikimedia projects, so how do you have a bot working on the gamepedia wikis ?Fusion thermonucleaire (talk) 10:37, 5 June 2020 (UTC)

Please take a look at the help pages for Bots and Logging in to third-party tools. There is also a help page for Pywikibot.   HorseHead.png Gamepedia icon.png MarkusRost (talk) 19:49, 5 June 2020 (UTC)
Sorry, I maybe should have posted here earlier. Markus, there's some context on gphelp:Talk:Pywikibot. --AttemptToCallNil (report bug, view backtrace) 20:06, 5 June 2020 (UTC)
I have already looked at those pages and others plenty of time, and I still don't succeed in connecting to the Aether wiki.

In Paws - Login to the wiki it is said how to log in a different wiki with a user-config.py, but even with

mylang = 'en'
family = 'aether'


mylang = 'aether'
family = 'gamepedia'

I can't log in, because the family isn't recognized, and I can't (or don't know how to) change it. Adding manually a _family.py file at the same location (/home/paws) as the user-config.py file didn't work either. I asked on the pywikibot IRC channel, but didn't get any answer :/

about interwiki namespaces[]

Hi, I'm Korean Administrator minejango2. I want to ask you about mcd/mce namespace. How we add namespaces in interwiki? Namespaces we need is MCW, Minecraft Dungeons(and MCD), Minecraft Earth(and MCE). Minejango2 (talk) 05:57, 10 June 2020 (UTC)

 Done, I added the namespaces to the wiki.   HorseHead.png Gamepedia icon.png MarkusRost (talk) 17:04, 10 June 2020 (UTC)

request change namespace's name[]

Hello, I'm korean administrator minejango2. Can you change namespace names? we need to change:

Widget -> 위젯

UserProfile -> 사용자프로필

--|minejango2|(Talk) the admin[ko] 02:32, 30 June 2020 (UTC)

I can't change those namespaces, the localized names would need to be added to the extensions itself. (See also)   HorseHead.png Gamepedia icon.png MarkusRost (talk) 07:12, 30 June 2020 (UTC)


Hello this is Fluffy from discord. Can I appeal my ban on the discord server? (The Minecraft wiki one?) Id like to be unbanned because I need that server to talk with other editors on here. 22:03, 6 July 2020 (UTC)

You've been posting inappropriate language, you were warned by staff, but continued, you got kicked, came back to resolve to insulting staff. This is not tolerated. If there is anyone you have beef with, you should take it with them in private. – Jack McKalling [ Book and Quill.png Diamond Pickaxe.png ] 22:16, 6 July 2020 (UTC)
The discord server is not a necessity for wiki editing; you do not need it to communicate with editors. The wiki itself has many methods to discuss things one-on-one and with the community as a whole. You were warned and continued rule-breaking behavior on the server, and thus, you were banned.
And, by the way, appeals (everywhere, not just on this specific discord server) are generally for wrongful bans, not "I was banned and I don't like it". -PancakeIdentity (talk) 22:23, 6 July 2020 (UTC)

I would like to change this behavior though. Thats why I want back into the server. 22:46, 6 July 2020 (UTC)


Why is your bot randomly restoring and deleting pages?---Humiebee Discuss anything with me Look at my edits 22:38, 4 September 2020 (UTC)

A lot of Mod pages have accidentally been deleted and I'm restoring them again.   HorseHead.png Gamepedia icon.png MarkusRost (talk) 22:43, 4 September 2020 (UTC)
Um... the Thaumcraft Mods are already on FTB as Thaumcraft 3, 4, and 5, all the subpages are there as well.---Humiebee Discuss anything with me Look at my edits 22:45, 4 September 2020 (UTC)
I don't have a full overview about already exported pages, I was asked to restore them all. If they are already exported they will probably get deleted again manually.   HorseHead.png Gamepedia icon.png MarkusRost (talk) 22:53, 4 September 2020 (UTC)
The Thaumcraft pages have not been exported (as seen on ftb:Project:Minecraft Wiki exportation project); unexported pages might have information not already on FTB wiki articles and should be checked before deleting/redirecting. The IndustrialCraft pages in particular seem to have content not on FTB wiki, as mentioned on ftb:Project talk:Minecraft Wiki exportation project. –Sonicwave talk 23:05, 4 September 2020 (UTC)

Add new namespace for tutorials[]

Could you create a new content namespace for tutorials? Currently, they are all subpages of Tutorials. They tend to be lower quality than pages in mainspace because editors tend to edit them less often. I've also noticed that the "Random page" link in the sidebar never links to subpages. If they were instead pages in a separate content namespace, then "Random page" would potentially link to one of these pages and therefore editors might be more likely to notice them. I also want to see conditional stats for subpages and non-subpages. Fadyblok240 (talk) 02:39, 5 September 2020 (UTC)

Fadyblok240, Random Page uses Special:RandomRootPage instead of Special:Random, I requested it to be changed in MediaWiki talk:Sidebar---Humiebee Discuss anything with me Look at my edits 00:56, 8 September 2020 (UTC)
Moving tutorials to a seperate namespace was proposed a few years ago, but the discussion didn't reach a consensus. You could restart the discussion if you want the pages to be moved though. –Sonicwave talk 06:39, 8 September 2020 (UTC)


Can you make me the Sandbox clearer. I like it. I'll clear it every 2-3 hours. If you do then please comment back. :) -- 19:06, 20 November 2020 (UTC)
