I think a problem with this question is that it is impossible to answer. There isn't a tool to identify the seed of a world by inputting the appearance of the screenshot, and people who play Minecraft can't scroll through available seeds. Even if they could browse seeds, there are 2^64 of possible seeds and it'd be statistically impossible for any person to ...

No, unless there is enough interest and specialty (e.g. the image appears on the splash screen), such questions have no utility to future readers, and therefore goes against Stack Exchange's ultimate target of building a library of knowledge, making them unsuitable for Arqade. That "it's strictly possible despite computationally expensive" holds no ...

The example questions you've listed are nowhere near as complex as some that have already been "accepted" on this site and also answered. Here are some of my personal highlights: Using scoreboard values as index in an NBT array: Minecraft 1.14.4 dynamical sized integer array (The workaround for some limitations is pretty complicated.) Detecting ...

Yes In any other context, a question that asked "how do I make items placable on other blocks", "how do I create charged creepers", "how go I give players custom potions", and so many other things would be closed as "Needs more focus". The fact that all of these things had the same "this is impossible" answer ...

I'm inclined to say that, in general, these sorts of questions should be on topic. I would not close this particular question for the modded Minecraft reason. There are a few parts to data packs that are definitely on topic here: function files (commands) and drop tables in particular. Additionally, questions asking how to configure and use a data pack ...

To help whoever implements this out, I am going to sort the existing duplicates between the new questions: This is a community wiki answer, so feel free to edit it if there are mistakes or you want to add new questions.

There's no reason to include unnecessary tags, even if an answer would apply to them. You're tagging the question, not the answers. Don't use tags you're not seeking answers to. If you want an answer for multiple editions and you are sure correct answers would apply to them all it's safe to tag the question accordingly. In that case you could tag the ...

Are there any users from Mojang on Arqade? Likely not, but we won't know unless they announce themselves in an answer, comment, or on their profile page. That isn't to say it can't happen: we have had developers of other games answer questions in the past, so it's not out of the question. As for the 'notch' user - I doubt they are the actual Notch from ...

Modded Minecraft is on-topic here As noted in a couple of comments, there is a common misunderstanding in the Minecraft space that we (Arqade) do not allow any question to do with Modded Minecraft. The truth is, only technical support of modded Minecraft is off-topic. The kind where you've added 200+ mods to Minecraft and it's crashing on startup. Or ...

I seriously think that this is an unnecessary shortcut. Now because you haven't reached the magical mark of 3000 rep for voting to close, I'll give you a sneak peek into how the system works, and show you why I have the opinion I do. When selecting "Duplicate" in the VTCshort for Vote to Close dialog, you must select which question to mark as ...

It's been a while since we've proposed this, and I don't see any direct opposition to this, so I believe we can start now. We will be working through three phases of this upgrade: Phase 1: New Question Creation—status-completed As suggesters of this proposal, I, pppery, and cherryblossom will be posting separate questions for each workaround. We will be ...

The problem with modded Minecraft tech support is that there is such a HUGE variation in installs possible that it really does not fit the stack exchange format. Everything from the Java version to the mods you got installed to the Minecraft version to the specific error message you get and even the state and history of your world can impact this to the ...

Please wait 5–15 seconds for the images on this post to load. I'm afraid I can't upload them to SE Imgur because the files are .svg. I feel like I am in an appropriate position to answer this question based on my previous experiences, including one very similar to the issue that is going on now. For those of you who haven't read my profile page yet, I am an ...

I agree that questions about implementing randomness using Redstone circuits would be different to (and require different answers/outcomes to) questions about implementing randomness in Minecraft commands, so I have reopened the question. I have also edited a note into the questions, explaining why each is different to the other one: How can I randomise the ...

I think we've indeed been overconsolidating the NBT thing. A large fraction of recent close/duplicate votes have been exactly pointing to this particular NBT question. It's turning into a black hole for all bedrock command questions. Yes, many things that are quick and easy to do in java edition due to the existence of NBT are harder to do in bedrock because ...

Actions I would suggest other than retargeting duplicates Delete all answers to the main question except for the accepted answer (no content is actually lost here, since the information will be contained in the new questions, and no significant reputation will be lost, since all but one of them are more than 2 months old and have a score of greater than two)...

There has never been a definitive set of rules for the closures as duplicates, so I'll post what I think the community has silently agreed on doing: Latest duplicate closure instructions This post details the most up-to-date rules for closure of Bedrock Edition NBT requests. The post can be solved completely with one or more of the workarounds listed on the ...
