Minecraft Forum links

This wiki has lots of references to topics on Minecraft Forum. In order to keep things accurate and safe, I suggest the following:

  • Regarding your second point, I figured it would be wise to tell everyone that it isn’t going into Read Only. Regarding your first point, this may or may not be needed as HTTP is usually converted to HTTPS in modern browsers. Tomodachi94 (talk) 11:14, 13 December 2020 (UTC)

Astroflux for Editor

Astroflux has made a bunch of documentation on various mods, including Thermal Foundation/Thermal Expansion 5, Extra Utilities 2, Immersive Engineering, Mystical Agriculture, and Cyclic. They have picked up wiki syntax pretty well and seem to be documenting WikiPack-style (that is, documenting whatever you use while playing) which is cool. -Xbony2 (talk) 21:47, 10 April 2020 (UTC)

This seems to have passed. -Xbony2 (talk) 06:40, 15 April 2020 (UTC)

Tektopia

Please add it. P.S. Fix my grammar if I'm wrong. --111.88.15.200 (talk) 10:47, 4 June 2020 (UTC)

your feedback is noted. -Xbony2 (talk) 15:29, 5 June 2020 (UTC)

SizableShrimp for Editor

SizableShrimp is a newer editor but learning quickly. Currently documenting Compact Claustrophobia. -Xbony2 (talk) 05:09, 18 June 2020 (UTC)

Delete Template:Article class

I suggest to delete this template, because this complete system is unused. The template is still used on some archive pages (although, actually only on one, here), there you could "subst" the template. Opinions on it? Qwertxquartx (talk) 07:18, 9 August 2020 (UTC)

I don't think we need a vote on this, I'll try to delete it right away. -Xbony2 (talk) 18:01, 9 August 2020 (UTC)
I deleted the page, including all 30 other pages that referred to the template. Qwertxquartx (talk) 08:39, 13 August 2020 (UTC)
nice, thanks -Xbony2 (talk) 17:37, 13 August 2020 (UTC)

Tomodachi94 and FérẞteaX for Editor(s)

I hereby nominate Tomodachi94 and FérẞteaX. Both are newer editors, and they don't have a ton of contributions, but they are editing stuff and have been active in the Discord for a bit. -Xbony2 (talk) 07:25, 14 December 2020 (UTC)

Xbony2 for Bureaucrat

Well folks, it is that time again. I declare here and now a vote on whether or not I (Xbony2) should be granted the role of "Bureaucrat." There are two bureaucrats currently: Retep998 and TheSatanicSanta. SatanicSanta used to be quite active, but he has been effectively inactive for a long time. He is not dead, and on occasion does stuff, but it seems he has other tasks that warrant his attention over the wiki. Which is perfectly fine. Retep998 is active on the Discord, but often unwilling to take action without some prodding. Over the past couple years I have usually been the one reminding him to give role statuses to users who have been voted to have them. Sometimes he is a bit unreliable, hence why I would to have the Bureaucrat role myself.

To be honest, I am not as active as I used to be myself. However, I do keep track of all Discord activity, and as you can see by looking above and through the archives, I have usually been the sole person to nominate new Editors over the past few years. Once my spring semester of college starts (gulp), it's going to be hard to keep track of everything, but regardless, having two somewhat involved Bureaucrats I think will be better than one. (edit: just to note, this kind of vote usually lasts for two weeks) -Xbony2 (talk) 21:15, 16 December 2020 (UTC)

  • Pictogram voting support.pngSupport. I fully support this idea ;) --Qunynawy (talk) 21:24, 16 December 2020 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting support.pngSupport If he abuses it, then it can be revoked, right? Tomodachi94 (talk) 21:34, 16 December 2020 (UTC) (I forgot to sign in lol)
    Bureaucrat enables some actions that are a bit harder to revoke. Retep998 (talk) 21:30, 16 December 2020 (UTC)
    Yes. Gamepedia staff can swoop in at any time. Although after more than 6 years of editing, I hope we can rule abuse as unlikely. Although ummm, perhaps you should log in? -Xbony2 (talk) 21:32, 16 December 2020 (UTC)
    (okay he logged in) -Xbony2 (talk) 21:38, 16 December 2020 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting support.pngSupport I'm not quite sure if I'm still qualified to vote here, but when I was active in the wiki xbony2 was helpfup with everything, heck I even think he has the most contributions of us all combined here.. --sokratis12GR (talk) 21:44, 16 December 2020 (UTC)
    By edit count, definitely, although I don't think that metric should be fetishized. Santa for example has probably done a bit more in terms of writing/fixing software for the wiki that we rely on. -Xbony2 (talk) 21:40, 16 December 2020 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting support.pngSupport They're handling the responsibility already, having the power just streamlines things. Canis Artorus (talk) 21:38, 16 December 2020 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting support.pngSupport Xbony is the best staff member!! Ferßtéax 21:39, 16 December 2020 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting oppose.pngAgainst. Did not proactively bribe me with cute original bunny pictures despite knowing my policy. 🐇Retep998🐇🐰Bunny Overlord🐰 21:40, 16 December 2020 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting support.pngSupport I'm worried that if the vote doesn't pass I may be pinged next year to vote again --Super fluke (talk)

    • Uh... I don't know if I should be relieved or scared. Tomodachi94 (talk) 03:04, 17 December 2020 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting support.pngSupport I thought he was that ages ago! — 🍕 Yivan000 viewtalk 🍕 03:24, 17 December 2020 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting neutral.pngNeutral, but with some leaning to Pictogram voting support.pngSupport. My inactivity here may cast doubt on credibility of my vote, but what I do have is a six-plus-year of editing Gamepedia wikis. I believe that the minimum amount of active bureaucrats on a wiki should equal two, as a means to rely less on global Fandom/Gamepedia staff and as a safeguard against possible intra-administration conflicts (something I’ve unfortunately been a witness of). — BabylonAS 16:18, 17 December 2020 (UTC)
