Whoah, can't wait for the next DYK update! :P -- OstPavel (talk • contributions) 20:49, 23 April 2014 (CEST)
Just wondering, should we perhaps (also) make a little widget that picks one DYK/funfact at random from the list? That should be possible using choose/option tags... {{User:dgelessus/Did you know?}} --dgelessus (talk · contribs) 21:07, 23 April 2014 (CEST)
Nice! Yeah, I am up for it! -- OstPavel (talk • contributions) 23:44, 23 April 2014 (CEST)
Unfortunately transcluding the thing multiple times will always show the same result, and I haven't been able to find a workaround yet. Otherwise it would be possible to simply transclude the random fact five times in a list, so every time you view the page you would get five new facts. --dgelessus (talk · contribs) 23:51, 23 April 2014 (CEST)
Well, as we don't have many facts right now, we may as well have one fact shown at a time. -- OstPavel (talk • contributions) 12:45, 24 April 2014 (CEST)
Supplying an empty parameter forces the randomizer to use a new seed:
...that Mystcraft was originally not Forge compatible?
List of factsAdd a fact
...that prior to Minecraft 1.2.5, there was a limit of 256 different blocks, thus greatly restricting the amount of mods one could have?
List of factsAdd a fact
...that Extra Utilities' Watering Cans can be used to grow Magical Crops even though Bonemeal cannot?
List of factsAdd a fact
You can get repeats, but it's not always the same fact. --timrem (talk) 18:45, 25 April 2014 (CEST)
Ooh nice, lemme try that.
Did you know that...
There is of course a chance for dupes, but it seems to mostly work fine. We could just implement it like this. --dgelessus (talk · contribs) 18:59, 25 April 2014 (CEST)
  • ...that if you right click a Rain Muffler, it will mute rain wherever you go?

  • ...That Open Blocks liquid XP can be converted to MFR mob essence by placing an Open Blocks XP shower over a MFR sewer.
