How should versions for Minecraft Java Edition be handled?
The current agreement, concluded at the time of 1.13, is that the answer should have separated areas or multiple answers.
The issue for the first separated option is that now and especially in the future, things like this can happen:
In 1.15 and 1.16 the
footag was known as
Here is the workaround for 1.14 (Versions below 1.13 have a different syntax).
That was a bit of an exaggeration but you see the point.
But for the latter, having 4 different answers for different versions is just inconvenient, goes against the site's design, and just has a lot of general flaws.
The only other real way to deal with this is to have multiple questions.
While right now it is not too much of an issue, in the future this will especially become apparent as many things are getting changed such as renaming things, removing things, adding things, and syntax changes. Every other version seems to break and change a lot of things.
Does everyone still have the same idea as a few years ago, or anyone think different? The problem originally arose from this question, which had a bounty put on it for an updated answer. How should these situations be handled?
