comment The Chryssalids! They're everywhere! How do I survive the Site Recon mission?
@z- I could have sworn it said the reward was just a panic reduction for Canada, which was irrelevant at that point in my game.

So, leapfrog your way back to the Skyranger. I can see that working.

comment Contaminated Ore and Mysterious Green Liquid
It has been an extremely long time since I played, but a cursory Google search says that the items are useless, but that there is a mod that adds in a couple of small quests with them.

comment Why can't I multi-class?
Multi-classing for demi-humans is chosen when the character is created. Dual classing for humans is chosen after a character has levelled up.

The city tile is always worked. Your first citizen can work any other tile.

comment Why am I never attacked? Why is the AI so peaceful?
Generally speaking (and ignoring personalities), the AI attacks based on relative power levels. In the early game, they will attack you if you are weak. In the late game, they will attack you if you are strong and winning. However, If you want to fight, there is a Declare War button on the diplomacy screen...

comment After installing Minecraft, I cannot figure out how to start the game
@PrivatePansy, et al. - This question isn't worded the greatest, but it is, in fact, a very common misunderstanding with how Minecraft is installed and run. Not understanding the launcher is the launcher and not an installation program is not equivalent to misplacing socks. It's equivalent to thinking shoes are socks.

comment How do I force re-download?
The concept of forcing an update doesn't really apply anymore, because you aren't (or should not be) modifying the jars. When using Forge, you just put your mods in a folder.

comment How do I update LWJGL on 1.7.4 without a bin folder?
A quick Google shows that the LWJGL files are now located in .minecraft\libraries\org\lwjgl\lwjgl. Unfortunately, I'm not sure how to update those so that Minecraft uses the updated version.

@BlueRaja-DannyPflughoeft - As per the linked meta, this question is on-topic here, as it pertains to a specific puzzle within a video game version of Go.

comment Stuck on Path of Go Bridge Keeper Chapter IV
In this particular case, I believe you will get better answers where the Go experts are and not where the video game experts are.

comment I can't delete META-INF
@Neon_Toaster - Updating the JAR file with the mods and deleting the META-INF folder is the old way to apply mods, and provided your mods are up to at least v1.6.1, it is far simpler to install Forge and use it.

Creative mode is the fastest and easiest way to duplicate items.

As far as access to the 10k tools are concerned, I feel I can point to my successful and continued use of the abilities my current rep has unlocked (primarily editing and reopen / close votes) and argue that my access to more abilities will follow the same pattern.

@Sterno - A lot of it has to do with the fact that I'm not on the site as often as the other candidates, so meta questions and flags are often dealt with before I have a chance to contribute. (If you are voting for me, you do have to accept my more limited time on the site.) However, if you look through my meta contributions (including comments), I'm confident you will see helpful and well thought out discussions about the site. (continued)

@JonW - That is an excellent question, and one that I specifically struggled with prior to making my declaration, since I have always participated on StackExchange with my real name and have not really hidden any personal information. Long story short, I’m not too concerned with it happening, but if it does, I am a long term user of the Internet and know how to lock down my social media sites so that unauthorized contact is not an issue. As for as my views on parenting and access to the Internet, we have a site for that
