I believe Zoma was incorrect: if you have made progress on your current issue so far or attempted to resolve the issue yourself to no success, the correct course of action is to edit your open question to state your attempt, what you've tried so far. The closed question was correctly closed as a duplicate. Please do not ask about the same issue more than ...

I agree that that question is too broad. The "What types of questions should I avoid asking?" page says Your questions should be reasonably scoped. If you can imagine an entire book that answers your question, you’re asking too much. I think it is entirely reasonable to say that if it is impossible for an answer post to contain the answer to the ...

The question was closed for a reason other than "being bad" or "lack of detail" it was closed because it is off topic. As i'm sure you are aware, game identification questions without a screenshot are off topic, and that's exactly the question. Many off topic questions could be answered, but they are off topic, so it doesn't matter how ...

This is due to incorrect rounding. It has been partially fixed, but only for years: Post was closed before it even existed is status-completed. I think your particular case might be the same as this meta SE bug report: Inconsistent rounding of "months ago" which is currently status-deferred - according to JNat♦ (Community Manager at SE) there are ...

Well, I updated the link. I checked whether the video was snapshotted in the wayback machine and it appears to be working from there. Albeit quite slowly and no more embed possible. It was a video I watched, because the topic of the video sounded intriguing. It's from a youtuber I never watched again. Just was interested in Night in the woods as it looked ...

You can't. A question is closed because it's not a good fit for our site. So if the question cannot be fixed to be acceptable for the site, you cannot answer it .

We're not really in the habit of migrating 10 year old questions, especially ones with several answers, with an asker that has been inactive for over 2 years. If you feel that none of the answers are satisfactory, and you would like some additional answers, then I'd encourage you to just ask your own question over at GameDev.SE. Additionally, it's important ...

Game Identification is a tricky category of question. In most cases, the question cannot be improved to become on-topic, even if an answer is found and an artifact is retroactively provided. The best thing we can do in the vast majority of cases is point people to places that do accept these sorts of questions. I agree with you that a comment with a ...

The question in... question, was closed because it is off-topic. Game Identification questions that rely solely on memory are off-topic because there is no reliable way for a voter to verify that an answer is correct. It has nothing to do with whether or not the question is "good", it's just that this sort of question doesn't work well with the ...

When the linked resource is no longer available, and we cannot easily locate an archive, mirror, or reupload, closing as 'Needs Details or Clarity' makes the most sense. In this case, we don't even have anywhere to start looking for mirrors or reuploads - the video or channel was never mentioned by name. There's also a question of usefulness for broken-link ...

We have a Code of Conduct that spells out kindness, collaboration and mutual respect as the core tenants. If anyone is being rude, the best thing to do is disengage from the conversation, and flag the comment or post so the mod team can take the appropriate actions. A lack of comments doesn't mean we're being unfriendly Having no-one leave a comment should ...

Thanks for bringing this here! Lets see what the others have to say. My opinion is: About-to-be-modded Minecraft is fine as long as the question is about Minecraft itself and not about the mods that are about to be installed. If you scratch the mods from the question and its still valid it's a good question. In our small conversation the question was about ...

TL;DR - No: As their name explicitly states, behavior packs give us the ability to modify the behavior of minecraft-bedrock-edition. As a result, they are not, in themselves, modifications to BE. They allow for the customization of minecraft-bedrock-edition (emphasis mine): Add-Ons are the first step on our journey towards bringing even greater levels of ...

I believe behaviour packs are not mods, because: They are built into the game. They aren't made in a programming language (while technically and rarely they can include JavaScript we could define that as out of bounds, and that's another abnormal scenario since no one uses it since it only works on Windows 10 anyway) What's in common with those? Resource ...

Closing a question is not and should not be taken as an insult. Voting to close is merely saying that the question does not adhere to guidelines or has been asked before. Take, for example, a question being marked as a duplicate. When something is marked as a duplicate (assuming it was fair) it allows the asker and any readers to be quickly redirected with a ...

It's because the Community bot... Owns the close vote when an asker agrees with a pending duplicate close vote. - Meta SE FAQ post: Who is the Community user?

The question you have linked to is not a duplicate. It clearly wishes to use a different method than the current duplicate target describes. However, before you click the reopen button, we have to consider that the question may be off-topic for a different reason. You see, game and mod development is off-topic also, so we need to gain a firm stance on ...

I am was said asker and answerer. The question was simply: What are some tips and strategies for getting the "Virtually Impossible" achievement in Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty HD. That doesn't really seem too broad, does it? Tips on how to get a single achievement. The issue is that this particular achievement requires the completion of ...
