How should we deal with out of date questions/answers?
While this is technically a general question, I was inspired to write this particular question simply because of Minecraft. It seems to me that games like this which change extremely quickly are difficult to answer in some cases. I have seen this answer which seems to attempt to answer the question, but it's just a single opinion and there does not appear to be an established site policy..
- How should we deal with questions that no longer apply to the game they're asked about?
- How should we deal with old answers that contain answers that drastically differ from the current state of the game?
- What should we do with new questions that ask the exact same thing as an earlier question, but the answers to said earlier question no longer apply?
As for my own opinion, I think we should not delete/edit answers if the information is completely different, and instead provide a new answer. However, we then need a system for making the new answer known, since the original asker may not be active at that point. A possibly related question is this one, which deals with answers that extend existing ones.
