    posted a message on How do Warning Points work, exactly?

    There are 2 types of warning, a formal warning and an informal warning. An informal warning has 0 points, and a formal warning can have 1 or more points. Most warnings are issued as an informal warning the first time, for example if you necropost once you'll received an informal warning (0 points) but then if you break the same rule again after you've been given an informal warning the moderator will issue it as a formal warning (1 point in the case of necroposting). Some warnings cannot be given as an informal warning, for example "Flaming / Insults" (1 point) and "Obscene Material" (3 points) are always formal warnings.


    There isn't a public list of warning definitions because they change, and it should not matter to a member what cost there is associated with each rule violation: members should not break any of the rules.

    posted a message on WYSINWYG: video proof

    The forum editor uses a package called tinymce, which is one of the best packages around for WYSIWYG editing, unfortunately WYSIWYG is a very difficult problem to solve and with the additional complexity introduced by our custom plugins it's inevitable that there will be issues. The way that your browser handles Javascript has an impact on the stability of the editor too, I'm going to guess you're using Firefox -- could you please try Google Chrome instead and let me know if you continue to see the issue outlined in your post? If we can identify the issues consistently then I can work with the development team to have the issues investigated.

    posted a message on This forum is laggy and buggy for me. Also doesn't seem quite safe.

    I'm sorry for the inconvenience you're experiencing, which browser are you using when this behaviour happens?

    posted a message on Change in complimentary Curse Premium?


    It appears that enabling advertisements and then disabling them via My Account -> preferences -> [Always Show Ads] permanently enables some of them, even if I turn Always Show Ads off.



    Can you clarify what you mean by "some of them"? There are things you may consider to be adverts, such as the server banners and "around the web", that are not considered adverts by the system and therefore they will display regardless of your preferences.

    posted a message on how do i add a forum server??

    You'd need to create a thread in the appropriate multiplayer forum, which in this case is: Minecraft: Playstation 3 Edition > MCPS3: Multiplayer > MCPS3: Servers. Then, once you're in the MCPS3: Servers forum click on the "New Thread" button, from there you can create your thread. Please let me know if you need any further help.

    posted a message on Weird bug (link replaced with entirely different text)

    That's really very strange; are you able to reproduce it following your steps when replying to this thread? I'm unable to reproduce it here. I would guess based on the fact that I can't reproduce it that perhaps it's an issue with an extension you have running in your browser, which could be ruled out by attempting to reproduce in incognito mode, however I'm not confidence that is the cause as I can't really work out what issue could manifest itself in this way.

    posted a message on Font Options Broken
    Quote from citricsquid»

    I'm sorry for the inconvenience! This is due to a bug with our software, any font that contains a space in the name is broken, here's a list of fonts that you can use: Arial, Georgia, Helvetica, Impact, Symbol, Tahoma, Terminal, Verdana, Webdings. I don't have an ETA on when this will be fixed but the development team are aware.


    This is something we intend to fix unfortunately other things have taken priority for the development team. I'm sorry for the inconvenience :(

    posted a message on What is "Upload an Image" for?

    The "Upload an Image" button is for attaching images to your post, you can't then directly include these images in the body of your post with any of the built in functions: they display at the bottom as attachments. You can however manually include them in your post, using the url of the attachment, like so:


    1. Upload the image

    2. After the image has been uploaded right click on the thumbnail and click "Copy Link Address"

    3. Open the image embed dialog and paste the URL


    You must keep the images as attachments, as if you delete them then the image will be removed and it will no longer show in your post.


    Here's a screenshot (included using this method):

    posted a message on Forum punishes the best contributors, is kind to the worst

    The forum rules that can realistically lead to posting suspensions are the forum rules that are most important to our ethos of providing "...a safe, secure and family friendly environment for Minecraft fans of all ages to share and discover their love for Minecraft". Members who are polite and constructive are rarely, if ever, going to risk any form of posting suspension because the forum rules that they might violate (while remaining polite and constructive) are rules that we'll initially issue friendly rule reminder warnings for, which carry no points, and only members who repeatedly break these sort of rules (for example bumping, duplicate threads, necroposting) in a short period of time would gain enough points to receive posting suspensions.


    I have reviewed every posting suspension issued in August so far and every single one has been issued to a member who either broke one of the rules around being polite (flaming, profanity, inappropriate material) after having received previous warnings for that behaviour, or someone who has broken one of the other rules (bumping, advertising, duplicate threads) numerous times in a short period of time.


    There are members who have made thousands and thousands of posts without ever receiving a warning for flaming, or using profanity, as their attitude is not one that would ever lead them to behave in a way that could be considered anything but polite and constructive, and for many of those who have received a warning for that behaviour, it was the last time they ever engaged in it. Everybody can have a bad day once in a while and might say something out of character that leads to a warning, but only those who consistently come to the forum with a bad attitude towards others will ever risk being excluded from the forum for any length of time.

    posted a message on What the heck happened to the post editor?

    The post editor requires Javascript to function. You have unfortunately discovered that because of how the forum has evolved over the years (multiple software changes) that older posts are very fragile, and don't function well when it comes to the editor. Web based WYSIWYG editor technology is somewhat weak in general, it has improved leaps and bounds over the last 5 years but it's still fragile. The editor is required to post because of some clientside formatting changes that happen, you can technically access the post submission form without the editor but when you submit that post it will not render as you expect it to. The only real solution is to rewrite your post using the current editor which will mean all the formatting is compatible with the current editor. Sorry for the inconvenience :(


    The forum supports revision history so that if your post does break you can rollback using Tools > Post History, which isn't a solution but it means that you don't need to worry too much about losing your post -- just the time it'll take to fix it.

    posted a message on HTTPS on Forum and Wiki?

    Quick follow up, just noticed you also asked about the wiki. The wiki (and all gamepedia wikis) do offer full site https if you're a pro subscriber because that excludes the advertisement problem, you can learn more about it here: https://www.gamepedia.com/PRO

    posted a message on HTTPS on Forum and Wiki?

    The reason that a lot of media websites like this don't use https across the site is because of advertisements, unfortunately advertisement technology is years behind the rest of the internet in quite a few ways and by enabling https site wide we would greatly harm our ability to deliver advertisements -- which is an important part of our business.


    The pages that require security, like login and account management, are all served over https (without adverts) to provide security, and long term we hope to serve the whole site over https because we agree that level is security is best :)
