I just proposed a new site on Area 51. It is about Minecraft, and I would like to know if it is possible to move all Minecraft questions from this site to that site (assuming that site gets made). And then all the people that asked about this should create an account on the new site (if that is possible)?

What do you guys think? Is this new site even a good idea or not? I was wondering if questions on this site would be accepted on Arqade if this would make the new site irrelevant.

Also, I need more proposed questions and followers of this proposed site within three days or it will die.

Minecraft is in-scope here. Always has been, always will be. This is a periodic proposal, but at the end of the day, Arqade is well equipped to handle Minecraft questions, and your proposal will probably be closed as a duplicate of Arqade soon.

  • Depressing answer because I would have like to create a different site for this, but +1 and accepted anyways. Thanks I guess... Jun 29, 2022 at 2:46
  • Welp, exactly what you expected happened. My proposal got closed. I guess I'll stop trying to push this new site. Jun 29, 2022 at 22:52

The other things to consider in addition to the other answer is your proposed site excludes mods, which is a massive part of Minecraft. Even if we could move our Minecraft questions to this new site, how would we accurately move vanilla questions versus modded questions?

It would also probably create a huge amount of questions that would only end up closed because Minecraft is no longer allowed on our site. It would create a lot of work, considering is our #1 tag (and then complicate this further with Bedrock edition, and the other smaller ones).

    I'll admit, I too have thought about a dedicated Minecraft SE site, but knowing Arqade exists, it doesn't make sense to implement. Maybe before the dawn of Arqade (which I think only barely predates Minecraft), a Minecraft site might have worked.

  • Wait, Minecraft is no longer allowed? What happened? Jun 29, 2022 at 19:48
  • Also I added modded questions in the proposal as long as they are tagged as modded. Jun 29, 2022 at 19:59

    @Enderman I was talking about if your proposed site were to become live. Minecraft questions are still allowed.

  • Oh I see. Thanks, I was confused for a sec. Jun 29, 2022 at 20:46
  • For what it's worth, Arqade was first proposed on June 1, 2010, and, per Minecraft Wiki, "Java Edition has been in constant development since mid-May 2009", so Minecraft predates Arqade by almost a year.

  • @pppery I thought it wasn't really a thing until 2011. No matter
