The Biomes Category is next on my list of “things to investigate”**, following the successful efforts of cleaning up the Gameplay category and the Mobs category split recently.
This post is about the category, not any specific biome, dimension or structure!
Something we've also observed, when posts go in this category, they maybe briefly mention an idea and then focus entirely on items in the biome or the mobs and exactly what they do. Moving posts isn’t actually a big deal (no really it's super easy), they’re just often really environment light and item/mob heavy. I mean that's cool, but doesn't really make that category useful like it could be.
That said, we have already seen a lot of cool suggestions in this category - several inspiring ones really and we want to see more!
Here are some questions I’d like for us to talk about in this thread, although I'm open to anything that falls under "constructive suggestions" for this category only:
- Would it make sense to provide a template that people could fill in to encourage more information about biomes/dimensions/structures that gives the community enough information to be able to vote sensibly for a post? What would go on that template? What do you wish people included?
- How do we keep encouraging unique ideas instead of very, very tiny variations on the same ideas? (Looking right at you, the nether and deserts.)
- Should we split the dimensions into Overworld, Nether, and Other?
- Should we move structures into its own category?
Thanks for any thoughts you have and thanks for using the feedback site!
