It's entirely possible that nobody who actively uses the site knows the answer to your question. If that's the case, there's not much you can do on this site to address that. Your next most effective recourse is probably to ask elsewhere. You can link people back to your question here if you want with the "Share" link. It looks to me like answering ...

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 ...

Each time you add a new bounty to the same question, the minimum amount of reputation that you can offer is doubled. From the Help Center: Additionally, if you offer multiple bounties on the same question, the minimum spend doubles with each subsequent bounty (50 reputation on the first bounty, 100 reputation on the second, 200 on the third, and so on). ...

It isn't mildly subjective, it's very subjective. The answers not coming to much agreement is an indicator of that. What does "hardest" mean? Time consuming? Risk of death? Something else? Does a beacon count separately from an activated beacon? If so, do the blocks under the beacon matter? It is under-specified and doesn't have a "...

Your first flag was declined by the community, and your second flagged was declined by a moderator. The reason your flag was declined is because the "Not an Answer" flag isn't intended for wrong answers, it's intended for posts that don't even attempt to answer the question: Not an answer This was posted as an answer, but it does not attempt to ...

While you can't vote to close it yet, you can still flag it: click Needs Improvement in the flagging dialog, and push the appropriate reason. This doesn't count as a vote, but simply adds it to the Close Votes review queue for >3000 rep users to look at. This would be the recommended action here, along with downvoting because it is very sloppy and no ...

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 ...

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. Change duplicate target to a new question— status-completed These questions should have their duplicate target modified to a new question ...

You are not currently answer banned, and while I don't know the exact formula for an answer ban, a skim of your answers list leads me to believe that you are not actually at risk of an answer ban, so I wouldn't worry there. Obviously I can only eyeball this, but you have a good amount of positively or neutrally received answers, so a handful of negatively ...

Arqade is a community-moderated site, which means that we don't all act on the same set of principles - everyone has different tastes and ideas of how they would run the site. Sure, there are some things that the majority of the site agrees on, but even if we have 95% of users in agreement, that still means 5% of our users don't agree. What you saw on that ...

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 ...

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 ...
