comment What Easter Eggs are in Hearthstone?
@Waterseas I agree! That's the 'grey area' which I'm referring to! Lists aren't inherently bad, certainly! But questions that ask for a Big List Of Things can easily be problematic, not categorically, but specifically!

comment What Easter Eggs are in Hearthstone?
@Waterseas the bad answers are merely a symptom, I agree. But that they are a symptom which attracts to a class of question like flies to rotted meat, is a good sign that maybe, when you see flies, you should check to see whether the neat is rotten! In some cases, it might be perfectly fine! But the flies are a leading indicator.

As for why I did vote to close this question, see this meta post. I find that question like this tend to attract the worst sort of one-per-answer shenanigans, and are not particularly well bound. I'm perfectly happy to be disagreed with and am not going to fight to the death on the subject, and an well aware that this is a grey area in which there is lots if room for disagreement; this is why it takes 5 votes to close - and reopen - a question.

@Mkalafut I'm not trying to dispute your opinion here. I'm saying that the edit has nothing to do with that. Look at the edit; all it does is clean up some garbled English full of double negatives. Which is great! That's what edits are for! But that garbled English had nothing to do with why the question was closed. Using those edits to support reopening is disingenuous and indicates a lack of respect or understanding of the statement that you're arguing against.

@Mkalafut the edit cleaned up the questions verbiage, but in no way did it fundamentally address the reason the question was closed. I'm not sure what makes you think it did.

comment Please help me on terraria multiplayer
You're going to need to be much more specific. What have you tried? Is there a consistent error message? if so, what is it? What sort of hardware/software is involved? What operating system, device, or console?

comment Is an Original Xbox emulator for Ouya possible?
Sorry @blaineh, but Arqade isn't really a site for speculating what might be theoretically possible for a developer to build; instead, we focus on concrete questions with real answers - primarily about actually playing games.

comment How can Diablo appear in Diablo III when his soulstone was destroyed in Diablo II?
Well, sure. But there's a difference between a terrible plot you didn't even bother to read, and a terrible plot you've suffered through!

comment How can Diablo appear in Diablo III when his soulstone was destroyed in Diablo II?
Did you just not read or listen to, like, any of the dialog over the course of the whole game?

comment What do the sub-stats on a weapon mean?
Not sure. This should be easy to test/double check with one of the flat +Elemental Damage strap ons (there are a bunch).

comment What do the sub-stats on a weapon mean?
It definitely doesn't mean a percentage. I'm pretty sure it is additional to the base, and I think the game is just obfuscating the fact that your damage is broken down a bit more than is displayed; +50 Frost means literally 50 frost damage, etc. (This would be consistent with the effect you get from various +elemental damage stickers and strapons).

@Ender Yes, and no, he doesn't. I'm not sure why this clarification request needed a bounty...

comment What benefits does being a Jew give me?
@BlueRaja-DannyPflughoeft For what it's worth: All classes have the same amount of Mana to work with. Just use more Potions between fights. It's not like the game doesn't throw too many of them at you to begin with.

But I did fart on him. He made some dumb joke in 'Eastern Canadian' that I couldn't understand.

Do you mean the Minister of Montreal? I don't remember ever meeting a 'Prime Minister of Canada'.
