I recently began writing highly detailed Q&A for creating add-ons in Minecraft: Bedrock Edition (here is the first one publicly available). With that in mind, there are a few more in the works surrounding more specific topics such as:
- How can I create a custom item in my Minecraft: Bedrock Edition add-on?
- How can I create a custom entity in my Minecraft: Bedrock Edition add-on?
- How can I create a custom block in my Minecraft: Bedrock Edition add-on?
However, we currently only have the tags minecraft and minecraft-modding. My concern is that if these Q&A begin generating more questions related to Minecraft customization, it may be beneficial to have tags for the respective Java and Bedrock editions at a minimum since customizations between the two games are vastly different.
🛠️ The Modding Suffix
This related post examines the idea (that seems to have been approved) that tags surrounding the modification of games, should be something like
I propose that we rename game-specific tags to have a "-modding" suffix, so we'd have
skyrim-moddingand the like.
With this however, if the community consensus is for the creation of the version specific tags, then how do we handle this going forward? Do we create a modding tag for each too, or, do we simply retain the minecraft-modding tag and that gets added to the question?
Should we create the tags
minecraft-java-edition to help separate questions in the future? If yes, should we retire the minecraft tag?
