comment Minecraft: building a tower of arbitrary height from inside
@Ming - if you place the water on the ledge above you, it will overflow down to the ground, and you ride the waterfall down. When you're back at the top later, use the now-empty bucket to pick up the sourceblock (the block of water you originally placed), and the waterfall "shuts off".

comment Minecraft: building a tower of arbitrary height from inside
@Ming if you hold down crouch, the game won't permit you to go over the edge of the wall. Crouch-walk backwards, and you'll get just far enough to be able to place a block "under" you.

comment How do I Super Jump?
You can also click on the squids on the map. (I didn't know you could click the names!) Also, you can jump to the spawn point from anywhere.

comment Is there any logic in the teammatching?
@Mathias711 Also points to experience and access to weaponry. It's not the most fun to get kicked around the block by a gun you can't have yet. :)

comment How does experience and gold work in multiplayer, and how can I maximize gain?
To answer the "maximize gain", I would point you to the non-ranked matches - you get p even if you lose. Ranked matches will pay a bit better if you win, but nothing if you lose. So if you're just grinding for cash to buy things, you'll likely get there faster in Turf War.

comment Is there any logic in the teammatching?
@Brian worth noting that they're matching playstyle, not skill. Would be nice if they sorted at least a little on that as well - bit disheartening to be matched 13-12-8-7 vs 20-20-20-20.

comment What technically defines what a “Nether Fortress” is in terms of mob spawning?
The videos don't appear to be present anymore.

comment Where can I find the safe combination?
Not to mention that it actually tells you the combination, rather than guessing from the related clues. (Two ways to the same place, I suppose.)

comment Can you kill a enemy in the med bay?
I have some gut feelings on it (from my gameplay), but I'm having trouble finding any hard numbers to back them up. Anyone have a link to the raw data? (Mantis get 1.5x damage, but 1.5x of what?)

comment Is it possible to play two different Steam games on the same account at the same time?
@ColinD That's true, regardless of Steam. Even if you are holding the physical DVD of a game in your hand, you only have a license to use it.

comment Finding my house in minecraft
+1 for being the most practical in-game answer.

comment Possibility to spawn mobs in random places
@MBraedley I think the trick might be to have several teleporters (one for each floor), and have them running on slightly different timing loops. It won't be Really Random, but varied enough that players shouldn't spot the pattern easily.

comment Possibility to spawn mobs in random places
Could you then chain that with a teleport? (Spawn them on the top floor, then teleport down?) I really need to play with command blocks more.

"TODO Design" sounds like an unfinished feature.

comment How do I create multiple worlds?
If you're just looking for multiple worlds and portals to jump between, you just need the Core and Portals. (Inventories is nice to keep your Creative toys out of your Survival worlds, but you didn't mention that in the question)

comment Which characters unlock each scene?
And I'd question the assumption that you only get ? characters if you have the matching level.

comment Is it possible to reach the center of Giant's Deep?
@GnomeSlice Probably safe to post by this point. I can confirm you can get in there, but I managed it by semi-accident. :(

comment How does the day/night cycle work?
@5pike With the addition of "when the light turns on, the game considers it to be night", which is slightly more accurate (if not much more helpful) than guessing from ambient light level.

comment How can I tell teammates from spies?
Another trick for Engies (which another answer listed) is that spies can't pass through your buildings. I've caught a lot of dumb spies on 2Fort trying to jump over a dispenser blocking a hallway...

comment Optimizing Axton for Solo Play
Regen is certainly nice, but that mostly gets you back on your feet after the fight - it's usually too slow to really be helpful in-combat. And second winds will get you shields but not health. I use transfusion grenades for in-combat health (the damage to the opponents never hurts either.)
