My little brother asked a question earlier about acronyms and code terms in Rise of Nations. However people have said that each one should be precise (where did he hear it, why did he hear it, what topic was it on). Should each code term receive its own question?

Is it acceptable to do this? Strictly speaking, it's within the rules, yes, and not worthy of closure.

That said, I downvoted both questions, and I did it for a reason;

Word salad list questions like this, with no context, no content, are a pretty perfect example of not showing research effort, along with being unclear and not terribly useful.

Is it required that you split it up? No.

Is asking ten great, detailed terminology questions, with context and background, which elicit good answers better than asking one terrible terminology question that looks like an intoxicated chihuahua walked across the keyboard?

You bet your ass it is.

Nope, it's perfectly fine to group a single game's jargon into a single question.
