How to ask your question
A good minecraft-commands question includes:
- A descriptive title
e.g. "How do I disable fire using commands?" instead of "Minecraft command problem"
Another good habit is to preface the question with a parenthesis containing the platform and version number, like so: (Java Minecraft 1.14.3) or (Bedrock Minecraft 1.12)
- A sentence or two explaining the context of your question
e.g. Are you creating a datapack, an adventure map, a command block creation...? Letting us know why you're attempting something makes it easier for us to suggest alternatives.
- What your problem is or where you're stuck
Show where you're up to, including commands that may be broken and/or specific things that an answer must accomplish to be useful to you.
- What you've tried so far
Including, but not limited to: commands, function files, datapack folder structure, command block settings, error messages, screenshots and really anything that can help us understand your question better.
