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 ...

The part 'for me' is not problematic. He says clearly what he did, and then that it did work for him. The thing I have issue with on this post is that he is not adding much as an answer that is 4 years old. He did one of the things that were mentionned in it, and then posted it as an answer saying it worked for him. Probably just commenting on the original ...

I'm split on this. On one hand, that is a legitimate question. Stuff has changed, and well you need to find the new command somewhere. Having those in well formulated questions and answered thouroughly can help users and bring traffic to the site. But I don't know why, I feel like creating questions like those in kind of a preemption of a future question ...

I'd say questions about ban-avoidance are kind of off topic, in both ways I can see the question getting asked. If the question asked is how to appeal a ban, well thats the kind of question that is quickly answered by 'Contact Customer service, see what happens. We can't do much to help you'. If the question is how to dodge a ban, such as trying to create a ...

Ban appeals aren't unethical at all. They're a normal part of moderation: punishing people, then allowing them back when they feel remorseful for what they did. How to evade a ban could have "appeal it" as a reasonable answer. About unethical questions in general: it depends on the question that's being asked. Ethics and morals are different for ...

It's been weeks, and this question is featured, but with no apparent consensus formed. I'm leaving this answer here simply to allow the community to vote to keep the current policy: "What does X mean?" is allowed. For example, you may ask what "bunny hopping" is. "Is there a term for Y?" is off-topic. For example, you may not ...

I think this is a good idea and would recommend doing multiple questions. The way I view these types of posts is more meant as an endpoint that answers the problem in a general manner, where other posts can then direct to (i.e. be marked as a duplicate of). With that in mind, a user asking the question wants an answer to their issue, not a general list of ...

There is a high-rep user who is very active on the site, but frequently uses strong language which violates the Code of Conduct in their comments. When you warned them, they replied stating that the questions are of low quality which is why they left those comments. They also threatened to quit the site. Despite the warning, they continue to post similar ...

Moderators are not selected because they are domain experts in certain tags, but it so happens that you are an expert in one such tag. You see that several members of the community have elected to close a question as a duplicate, but you see that the duplicates don't actually answer the question as stated, nor do they provide a useful signpost for the asker. ...

No, never. If a question is inappropriate for a tag, the tag should simply be removed from the question. If the question is also off-topic for the site, then it should be closed.

So, I was just clearing bank space today on my ironman in oldschool-runescape opening some Wintertodt crates and... At only a 1/5,000 drop from a supply crate, it's not the wildest RNG I've gotten on this account, but it was very funny to get caught off guard like this. I literally did not notice this was my phoenix until I walked away from the bank chest.

Does accessing paid content through a demo using exploits fall into the category of piracy? Yes. You are bypassing a restriction in order to access paid content or features for free. Getting paid content or features for free is the definition of piracy, and we have a zero-tolerance stance on providing support for piracy. The definition you cited is not an ...

Lazers should continue to only post Hot Network Questions (HNQ). As much as I'll miss Lazers having such a large presence in The Bridge, I'd rather it didn't drown out actual human users (sorry robots!). To me, switching lazers to only post HNQ allows Lazers to stick around, without it silencing out other conversation.

You (a moderator) and another community member both answer a question on the main site. The other answer is well written but (objectively) incorrect, and has gathered a similar amount of upvotes to yours. What do you do?

A fellow moderator takes an action the community disagrees with, and the community takes it to meta. You also disagree with the moderators decision. What do you do? Relatedly, what would you do if you were the moderator who took action the community disagreed with in the above situation?

I believe we should default to on-topic unless easily proven as off-topic, simply because I believe the context of the post would designate whether or not it is on-topic. For example, if I'm asking how to modify the scale of an entity in a behavior pack, I think it's on-topic. This is because that functionality is built into the game, and concrete examples ...

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'm curious as to why Elder Scrolls I-III and V are included, but number IV (Oblivion) isn't. Was this a deliberate omission, or was it excluded by accident?

In general: This is a bit of a gray area. It's not always obvious whether a developer strictly intended for a demo to allow something, and developers (usually) do intend for players to download and play demos without paying for them. There is nothing wrong with asking questions about a demo rather than the full version of a game. On the other hand, if a demo ...

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 ...

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 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 ...

First of all, go visit the wiki page to see which commands are exclusive to which versions. Terminology used: NBT data: NBT stands for Named Binary Tag, and it is used by Minecraft for the various files in which it saves data. The format is designed to store data in a tree structure made up of various tags. The syntax of NBT is similar to that of JSON, ...

I believe if this adjusts the tag, it should still require people to be as specific as possible, and we should not allow for broad reaching questions. It'd be up to the community to decide on what is and isn't, but immediately closing everything that starts with "Is there a term for X" doesn't seem right. If the question is scoped and has examples ...

In my humble opinion, this category is likely to illicit lower quality (or at least less interesting) questions, but I don't think they'll be such low quality as to be a nuisance. The potential for great answers somewhat blunts that concern anyways. I would foresee most of these questions having objective answers, and those that need subjective answers ...

I think the main issue we often see with these questions is that some believe the question is more of a general "is there a word in the English Dictionary for this thing" question. I believe in the past I've seen people get directed to the English Language & Usage SE site for questions like this. While I think questions like this probably aren'...

terminology has a long history, so let's try to retrace it. The tag's first revision, back in 2010, explicitly mentions questions like yours as problematic, and the wording never left the description afterwards. This first revision also makes it clear that "single questions which ask for a list of answers (with one term per answer) do not fit well into ...

Personally, I see no problem with your proposed question. You are simply asking about a fairly benign thing (creating a second account for an MMO, with no ill-intent) and wanting to know if this would go against the game's ToS. I agree also that the legalese for ANY modern ANYTHING is complicated beyond belief, and tends to be unreadable by the common person ...
