I'm building a replica of this site in Minecraft. I need to know if I'm wasting my time. I would like to put a video of it on YouTube.

Before you say to yourself, "But you can't build a website in Minecraft!", I'm putting pixel art:

enter image description here

On the front (MBraedley's design, I give him credit in the map), and inside, rooms that have questions (and answers). Closed questions are literally closed (inside locked doors). Is this acceptable?

A little context: I'm building an adventure map with puzzles. A guide (Myrtle the Mushroom Man, I'm open to better name suggestions) will escort you to another puzzle, but can also bring you to Arqade, which has all the answers.

I'm not even sure that putting usernames is acceptable.

How far can I go with this?

Oh, and when I finish, I'll edit in a let's play link if you want to see it. If I'm allowed to.

If it's just a matter of making money off videos and therefore off Arqade, I can always turn monetization off.

Edit: I also wanted a Mothership boss battle that you had to flag as "off topic", but it wouldn't fit in with the rest. D:

    As long as you don't actually claim it's in any way official, or that it is actually made by SE, you'll be fine.

    When you do make it, please post a link to the world here for us all to see :) Sep 6, 2015 at 1:56

    Here's me imagining logging onto a Arqade and browsing questions by walking amongst rows of signs representing tags, navigating to a question - a large building where the question is emblazoned on the front wall. Enter the building and there's one or more solutions built as contraptions. There's a few other people there editing them, fixing up some of the worse contraptions, modifying them to use a particular type of block instead of just dirt or cobblestone so that they look better.

  • @angussidney, Do you want a link to the whole let's play, or just the sites? Sep 6, 2015 at 14:06
  • @RainbowDash Both, if possible Sep 7, 2015 at 6:15
  • Well . . . This is going to take a while. See you in a year! Sep 7, 2015 at 10:45
  • Thinking out loud: I guess it would be allowed to do this, provided the terms of the Creative Commons "with attribution" license (see link legal at bottom of every StackExchange page) are fulfilled. How would you link back to the originals?

  • "But you can't build a website in Minecraft!" - I think someone can create a full website in Minecraft, if someone really wants to. Sep 16, 2015 at 6:45
  • @Robotnik I'm not sure why you didn't insert a creeper in your description…
