The average score of the 50 most recent minecraft questions is currently -1.44 and only 16% of them have a positive vote score, for minecraft-commands it's -1.22, 26% positive. Most of them are downvoted because they don't show any research effort. I'm probably not the only one who is annoyed that 90% of Minecraft questions are noise about basic game principles or similar things that answer themselves when googling a few related words. It takes away the motivation to follow the tag and answer actually good questions.
According to this, flagging these questions isn't allowed. But that leads to almost always at least one of these questions being on the start page of Gaming.SE. It drags down the overall view on this page and if someone specifically looks at the tag, they might think that these questions are welcome here, since most of them are of this type anyway.
What can be done about this situation?
