Hi. In the recent changes log I saw you deleting nearly all my work! The combine aged of my little brother and I is only 18 years old. Now that you can figure out our age you now know why those edits were so "Pointless". I don't want to start a flame war so can you give me some tips on editing pages and helping to create this wiki? Plus I should let you know that my only way to go on the internet is by a very very very slow computer that can just barly play minetest and a kindle 2.5.6. You have no idea what's like typing on a tiny keyboard with your thumbs. --Tux101

The wiki does not need redundant or obvious info (it's like putting on the lava page "caution, it hurts"). I'll take this edit as an example: you just said that wooden planks are renewable (already stated in the article) and can thus be used as a building material (totally false, you can also use stone or any other non-renewable block to build a house).

Also, if you have trouble editing the wiki on a tablet, why not use a desktop/laptop instead? Tablets aren't made for creating content at all. Don't forget grammar and spelling is important too (if the information was useful, I would have corrected the typos if any). Calinou - talk × contribs » 14:18, 28 January 2013 (CST)

Thanks for the tips! I also wanted to know how to hyperlink stuff or is that on a higher 'level' of wiki editing? You were also right about the laptop. My thumbs feel so much better (after I convinced my dad to let own the entire laptop --Tux101 17:51 30 January 2013 (AEDST)

This is how you can hyperlink: [[Papyrus]] will make a link to the Papyrus page. You can also name them indepentently of what they point to: [[User:Calinou|Calinou's user page]]. External links work in a similar way, example: [ Minetest website] Calinou - talk × contribs » 06:45, 27 February 2013 (CST)

Russian Minetest Wiki

I and two people maintaining Russian Minetest Wiki: Can you add link on main page to it? Also: how I can make interwikis? If necessary, i can edit LocalSettings.php. If you can, please respond to my talk page.

If I made errors, sorry :) --ArtSin

We don't need another website for a wiki, sorry, if you want to translate the wiki, start by making new pages like Crafting/ru or Wooden Planks/ru. Calinou - talk × contribs » 06:45, 27 February 2013 (CST)

Can you install Interwiki extension, please? I don't want move pages to this wiki because:
  • ~50 pages to move - a lot!
  • On your wiki default language is English
  • Maybe make as with Minecraft Wiki - ArtSin 06:31, 2 March 2013 (CST)

I can't change wiki language, add extensions or add subdomains, please ask Admin instead. Calinou - talk × contribs » 16:15, 10 March 2013 (CDT)
