Game identification questions are only allowed when you have a screenshot, video, or anything beyond a description. The wording "This tag is only for identifying games in movies, pictures, videos, advertisements or otherwise where an unknown game appears" doesn't make that clear, so I've changed the tag excerpt to: Only ask if you have a ...

Ah, I see the confusion. The criteria for that badge is that you must be the first to answer a question, answer it 30+ days after it being asked, and have that answer be accepted with a score of 2+. Your answer for that question was written two days after the question was asked, and thus is not eligible for the Revival badge.

I am not one of the downvoters, but in the specific case, the biggest thing for me is that most of your answer is just a fairly long list of links to external resources, and the rest is pretty much just paraphrasing one of them.

Quickly glancing at your profile on StackExchange shows you have 11 reputation, not 15. If you had 15 rep at one point you may have needed to wait a day for the StackExchange server to register the change and lift the restriction.

If your question is about Universal Minecraft Editor, then tagging with universal-minecraft-editor would be fine. We don't have an overarching "gaming utilities" tag, which wouldn't really group the software together in a meaningful way. We already have plenty of software/utilities tags: nvidia-geforce-experience, discord, fraps, not to mention all ...

Yes. Identification questions are not on topic here because they "don't fit the Q&A format" but are on topic on several other sites because they fit the Q&A format there. Sci Fi & Fantasy frequently answer identification questions purely from description. While they focus on books and film, they have no policy forbidding asking about ...
