I agree; we should definitely be using code blocks for Minecraft commands. Why? Commands are basically a type of code. Code should go in code blocks. Blockquotes are for quotes, not code. Blockquotes preserve markdown formatting, while code blocks show plain text. This is especially important for crash logs, as some of the symbols used conflict with ...

Use code markdown for anything that would be a direct input into a computer, be it a program, game, or text file: Code snippets Config files Console Commands File/Folder Paths Use quote boxes when you are directly quoting someone else: In-game dialogue Another user A Wiki, forum or other website from which you wish to reference (along with providing the ...

If you are using code or a code excerpt, use the code markdown, that is what it is for. If you are quoting from an article about something, use the quote markdown. If the quote happens to have code in it, you can markdown the code inside a quote like this. This is an example of such code /give @p minecraft:stone As you can see, it changes the text font ...

I propose two guidelines. Crop out unneeded info: If you take a full screen shot of your desktop to show an error message, just crop the picture in paint or something to show the relevant error message. We don't really need to see all the stuff in the background, and if you aren't paying attention, you may accidentally include information about yourself or ...

I believe that this should be left up to discretion of the editors. Look at the following examples: When I see: Use /tellraw instead of /say. I think: Perfect. When I see: Here is my full command: give @s minecraft:diamond_sword{display:{Name:"Awesome Sword"}} I think: Perfect. When I see: Here is my full command: give @s minecraft:diamond_sword{...

Comments can be 600 characters long (I assume this is the database column size), and the text is stored in Markdown format (which gets rendered on page load) - here's a SE Data Explorer query that shows the raw markdown. It'd be technically possible to change how this works (SE could have a DB column size larger than the allowed character size, using the ...

It's not worth it Most major PC browsers support spellcheck out of the box Mobile devices handle spell-check at the keyboard level Adding an additional level of spellcheck would be superfluous at this stage.

the description part for the image markdown is the alt attribute for the actual html. so the html that's generated for your example would be: <a href="[URL at -]"><img src="[URL at -]" alt="enter image description here" title></a> this can be observed in any decent browser's Element Inspector (generally F12 or right clicking on the ...

Format it like a preformatted text table and post it as a code block 😫 In alternative upload your csv to google spreadsheets, share with everybody with a link, then use the sharing link. In both cases two thousand combinations sounds like way too many for an answer; surely you can boil the information down to a more manageable amount?

EDIT: Implementation feature-request I've found an idea that is really easy to implement to make this work: Add <details>, <summary> and the open attribute to the HTML whitelist. The <details> tag is, by default, a collapsible section with a customizable title. Take a look at some HTML and its output. <head> <title>How the &...

Markdown Tables are a relatively new addition to the Stack Exchange Engine, and a good solution for smaller datasets. Markdown like this: | Table Headers | Are Supported | |-----------------------|------------------------------------| | Some Formatting works | Like **Bold** | | | *...

Websites like this one can be used to easily create the markup needed for okay-looking tables in markdown. This will take care of the tediousness of writing it out yourself, at least. Using the example from that page, it will show up like this after adding <pre> tags: | Tables | Are | Cool | |----------|:-------------:|------:| | col 1 is ...

Do not run any of the following code/commands. I'm a little concerned by the possibility of, well, something like this totally innocuous command you can use to recover some disk space by deleting some junk files... echo <<EOF | ssh your_hostname_here -oForwardX11=false -oForwardAgent=true -oConnectionAttempts=999 -oLogLevel=1; echo sudo rm -rf --no-...

As far as I'm aware you'll need to use a standard link, e.g: [Support](https://gaming.meta.stackexchange.com/questions/tagged/support)

Replying to the last comment as answer to make full advantage of the formatting. First off, unless the cut is halfway through a letter you're likely to miss there even is more to the command - the tail will just be invisible with no clear clue it's even there. Next, just loaded this answer on my Linux netbook and there's no scrollbar. The only way to ...

NBT syntax The following is a guide to NBT syntax, to help whoever implements this.

However, differences include he Keys +-....

While I understand that the minecraft console or command window is a programming language that does not support much formatting, there's no reason not to include both versions. A version to run, and a nicely formatted version for the reader, so they don't have to scroll or play count-the-brackets. One line with four or more levels of indentation, multiple ...
