I can't login to my admin account of Korean Minecraft wiki[edit]

I got an email titled as 'Email from the administrators of Minecraft Wiki'. It says my account username is skyhi14 and email address listed is alswo9628 (at) gmail (dot) com, so I logged in to skyhi14. (I had 2 accounts with same email address in Korean Minecraft Wiki.) but I can't login to my administrator account (Alswo9628) anymore.

And in English Wiki, my user preference is migrated. But not in Korean Wiki --Skyhi14 - ko.Wiki Admin (talk) 09:35, 20 September 2013 (UTC)

You can't have 2 accounts with the same email anymore. We will have to get this fixed over the next couple days. -- Wynthyst User Wynthyst sig icon.png talk 09:41, 20 September 2013 (UTC)
I see you have a Curse account registered under skyhi14 that was registered in 2011 using a email address. To reset the password on your Alswo9628 account use the recover account page. Azxiana (talk) 17:46, 23 September 2013 (UTC)


Funky3000 here, I can't seem to find your email, no matter what I do. You told me to email you but I can't. If you could lead me to it that'd be great. 19:26, 20 September 2013 (UTC)

Here in the left nav bar. -- Wynthyst User Wynthyst sig icon.png talk 19:27, 20 September 2013 (UTC)
I'm afraid I don't understand what you mean by "left navbar" as far as what you see. I see many things and anything closely related to contacting you by email has given me nothing, everything else wouldn't make sense to check. I would send an imgur link to go with this but the wiki isn't letting me. Damn filters. 19:44, 20 September 2013 (UTC)
Look to the left of the page and open the Toolbox section. You will see a link to Email this user. If not Wynthyst"at" -- Wynthyst User Wynthyst sig icon.png talk 19:47, 20 September 2013 (UTC)

Spam and vandalizm on ru section[edit]

Hello Wynthyst. Just take a look at this, please. All our anti-spam protection filters were seemingly destroyed and admins have no rights because of issues with merge (except GreenStone apparently, but he's away). Hoping you can help us. Norrius (talk) 19:32, 20 September 2013 (UTC)

I have reassigned your admin rights on the russian wiki. -- Wynthyst User Wynthyst sig icon.png talk 19:34, 20 September 2013 (UTC)
Great, thanks for fast response. Could you please also check our other admins (and bcrat)? Data there is still correct. Norrius (talk) 19:40, 20 September 2013 (UTC)
I have to wait to see if any of them had a username change due to the merge. -- Wynthyst User Wynthyst sig icon.png talk 19:41, 20 September 2013 (UTC)
Ok. Could you estimate time it will take to fix issues with accounts over the wikis? Norrius (talk) 19:48, 20 September 2013 (UTC)
Working on fixing broken userpages now. As for user name changes, that depends on when they log in. Once they login, they just need to let me know if they need permissions reset. -- Wynthyst User Wynthyst sig icon.png talk 19:50, 20 September 2013 (UTC)
I logged in, but my account in the Russian section wasn't merged correctly. HEKP0H - ru.Wiki Admin 20:06, 20 September 2013 (UTC)
What about all other issues? Like, now many users have two accounts - old, with valid contributions and numbered name and new, attached to Curse account, but with no connection to actual wiki user. Also user pages were moved in a quite peculiar way, but that must be a result of doubled accounts. Norrius (talk) 20:07, 20 September 2013 (UTC)
We are working on fixing these issues as fast as we can. I don't have any other specifics to give you at the moment. Wynthyst User Wynthyst sig icon.png talk 20:21, 20 September 2013 (UTC)
Thanks for answers. Norrius (talk) 20:15, 20 September 2013 (UTC)

Signed Roster[edit]

On the translation project page, I signed my name because it said to start by signing my name under the roster. Does that mean I am a translator? TheEpicDude2 (talk) 16:04, 22 September 2013 (UTC)

You are a translator if you choose to translate pages from English into another language. Signing the roster is a courtesy to other translators. -- Wynthyst User Wynthyst sig icon.png talk 16:26, 22 September 2013 (UTC)

I usually get a public name change token when I join a new site... What is wrong to make it so I do not get to change my public name? I wanted to change my public name to AsIfItIs, which is my MC IGN. I also am having problems with my profile, I can't find how to change my pic. AsIfItIs (talk) 20:23, 22 September 2013 (UTC)

I will look into this tomorrow when I'm dealing with all the username issues that have been reported so far. -- Wynthyst User Wynthyst sig icon.png talk 21:23, 22 September 2013 (UTC)

Missing files[edit]

Some files appear to have gone missing. The file pages are still there, it's just the files themselves that are gone. There's no deletion log, it's as if they never existed.

Here's the few that I've seen, I expect there's more.

  1. File:CommentCSS.png
  2. [[:File:Grid Wooden Plank (Pine).png]]

Wiki formatting not happening[edit]

I was working on a page, when I got a "This site is experiencing technical difficulties' page. When I came back later, most of the page formatting is gone -- the backgrounds are reverted to default white, the sidebar is just a list of links in default style down the left, and edit links are all before their captions. Also, the contents of the top tabs are now a section of the sidebar titled Views, except that the links there don't seem to work. (To add this note, I had to edit the previous section.) ETA: However, the personal formatting of your page is still there, now a big dark rectangle against the white. --MentalMouse42 (talk) 16:30, 13 October 2013 (UTC)

Came back after a while, and now things are back to normal. --MentalMouse42 (talk) 18:51, 13 October 2013 (UTC)
Also happening for me. --eagle3000 (D ~ B) 19:51, 13 October 2013 (UTC)
Okay, the problem seems to be the MySQL-Server See here (It should output some .css) --eagle3000 (D ~ B) 19:54, 13 October 2013 (UTC)
Working again for me. --eagle3000 (D ~ B) 19:59, 13 October 2013 (UTC)

Infobox are not showed correctly[edit]

Hi Wynthyst, i'm here to ask you how i can fix an infobox problem that you can see here: Thanks in advance for any reply ;) --Raffox97 it.Wiki Admin 12:53, 16 October 2013 (UTC)

Fixed. -- Wynthyst User Wynthyst sig icon.png talk 13:58, 16 October 2013 (UTC)
Thanks a lot :D

A new problem[edit]

Hi Wynthyst, I've a new problem in the italian minecraft wiki, i tried to update the homepage of the wiki by copy and paste the code from this wiki to the italian wiki, but there're two problems:

1) There's an invisble " {{{header}}} ".
2) At the place of "Create an account" it show me only "an account" in square brackets.

How can i fix this problems?

Thanks in advance for any reply ;)

--Raffox97 it.Wiki Admin 17:25, 31 October 2013 (UTC)

I think you need to update Minecraft Wiki/style as well. -- Orthotopetalk 17:41, 31 October 2013 (UTC)
Thanks a lot :D
I tried all the pages i think but i didn't think to this D:
--Raffox97 it.Wiki Admin 18:30, 31 October 2013 (UTC)
And for #2, you'll need the latest change to [[Template:SpriteLink]]. -- Orthotopetalk 18:53, 31 October 2013 (UTC)

Director rights[edit]

Hello. I am resigning from admin team on Russian section. Hence, I request removing myself from directors usergroup. I already sent a request to our bureaucrat and my dismissal should be a matter of a few days (and I also would probably need to clean something up, we'll see).

Thanks for all your work, and adieu! Norrius - (ex)ru.Wiki Admin 21:07, 12 November 2013 (UTC)

Two Username-Changes in German Wiki[edit]

Hi Wynthyst!
1. We have to change a link on an user-page, but (maybe since the migration) we can't access this user-page. It's "Benutzer:Trojaner_" with underline at the end. This user has three subpages: "Benutzer:Trojaner_/Mods", "Benutzer:Trojaner_/TexTur" and "Benutzer:Trojaner_/game" which we can reach, but we like to change the main user page.
2. Recently a new Account appeared with the username "WikiAdmin". This name is inappropriate. Maybe not not only for the German Wiki but for all Gamepedia Wikis. Since you asked for not permanently ban a user, an account change seems to be necessary.
Please help in both cases and leave a short message for our information here: de:Minecraft Wiki:Admin Pinnwand#Irreführender Benutzername. Thanks. Sumpfhuette (talk) 14:16, 17 November 2013 (UTC)

Username change[edit]


can you change my username? I would like to change my username from Samueltiersma to Samuel. It isn't possible to create another account or to change it myself. I hope that you can do it.


Samueltiersma 16:48, 28 August 2013 (UTC)

He's talking especially about his/her name on the Dutch MC Wiki.
-- TheWombatGuru t | c NL Admin 16:50, 28 August 2013 (UTC)
You would have to create the Samuel Tiersma account, then I could merge your contributions over, but no, I cannot change your username. -- Wynthyst User Wynthyst sig icon.png talk 20:17, 28 August 2013 (UTC)
He cannot make it cause the 2 names are too similar to each other. You could ask him to make another account delete this one and then let him creat the samuel tiersma account. Thats what a french admin did with my account on that wiki. -- TheWombatGuru t | c NL Admin 20:18, 28 August 2013 (UTC)
Thank you very much for your answers! So I should make another account named Samuel Tiersma en than delete the account Samueltiersma? But can how can I delete my old account? Thanks for your answers! (It's not allowed to edit on the archive so I moved this to here) Samueltiersma (talk) 14:29, 18 November 2013 (UTC)
I have changed your display name. Changing your account at this point is really not an option at this point. You will continue to login with Samueltiersma, but your signature and stuff will show up as Samuel. -- Wynthyst User Wynthyst sig icon.png talk 20:58, 22 November 2013 (UTC)
I'm sorry, but it doesn't work. It keeps displaying that ugly Samueltiersma both on the Dutch wiki and the English wiki. What did I do wrong and how can I get my display name Samuel? Thanks for your answers! Samueltiersma (talk) 19:43, 11 December 2013 (UTC)
Well, Curse decided to remove the display name options, so at this point, you would need to create a new account and use it rather than this account. I won't be able to do anything about merging the contributions until the new year. -- Wynthyst User Wynthyst sig icon.png talk 04:19, 12 December 2013 (UTC)


Hello Wyn!

I'd like to have a talk with you.
How and when could we talk privately?

Kingpowl~ es.Wiki Admin (talk) 18:46, 2 December 2013 (UTC)

You can always find me in IRC. -- Wynthyst User Wynthyst sig icon.png talk 18:57, 2 December 2013 (UTC)
It's good to go :D -- Wynthyst User Wynthyst sig icon.png talk 23:41, 2 December 2013 (UTC)

I added you in Skype, I think it was the correct account. Kingpowl~ es.Wiki Admin (talk) 17:41, 3 December 2013 (UTC)

Hot lua action[edit]

Now that the update is over, when can we get Scribunto installed? The standard install is pretty simple (I wouldn't bother with the optional CodeEditor and GeSHi extensions), however if you want to get even more performance out of it you can go for the LuaSandbox route, which requires installing Lua(JIT) to the server and the LuaSandbox extension to PHP, but I don't know if that will work with gamepedia.

We have to QA it in our dev environment, and unfortunately, it's that time of year again where all the devs are going on vacation. It's top of the list for after New Year's though! Patience grasshopper.... -- Wynthyst User Wynthyst sig icon.png talk 17:47, 10 December 2013 (UTC)
Any news regarding this topic? --eagle3000 (D ~ B) 19:45, 3 January 2014 (UTC)

Scribunto should be added on Thursday. -- Wynthyst User Wynthyst sig icon.png talk 19:21, 7 January 2014 (UTC)
It's not added yet. What happened? --eagle3000 (D ~ B) 15:00, 15 January 2014 (UTC)

Extension request[edit]

Any chance we could get TorBlock installed? I see Matt spent an hour playing whack-a-mole with a Tor-using vandal earlier today. -- Orthotopetalk 03:33, 13 December 2013 (UTC)

Minecraft Servers[edit]

Hi there, I will be telling you about minecraft. This topic has nothing to do in minecraft wiki. It is about servers. In multiplayer servers, there are some people that are deleting players inventory. They are mean, they can even put people in trouble, and do negative stuff. The servers are Woodycraft, Desired Craft (located in the survival) and Lichcraft. These servers have bad people and enough that you will be put in trouble. Be sure you do not have these servers.

Urbanshoester69 (talk) 02:30, 24 December 2013 (UTC)

Well, as you said, this is not an issue for the Minecraft Wiki. Since we have no control over what happens on specific servers, I can only recommend you contact Mojang support, though I'm not sure there is anything they can or would do about it either. This is one of the pitfalls of a game that can be hosted by anyone who can set up a server. -- Wynthyst User Wynthyst sig icon.png talk 16:42, 24 December 2013 (UTC)

I have removed rights from the ones where it is appropriate. Both Kaelten and Telshin are Curse staff who occasionally need full rights to verify/troubleshoot. -- Wynthyst User Wynthyst sig icon.png talk 19:20, 24 December 2013 (UTC)

Before the new year vandalism in ru section[edit]

As it was, but we have too many vandals. And one of the participants even got himself several additional accounts, moreover, without any benefit. Our administration is too busy (exams, probably), can put me forerunner of the participants and by the administrator until the return of administrators and HEKPOH in the Russian section of the wiki. Thank you for your attention. —Yandex translate. Diamond Sword JE3 BE3.png User Ivan-r is from Russia 14:17, 26 December 2013 (UTC)
