comment Why are there mobs on my balcony?
Only the block directly above the ground surface (i.e. the light level visible on the ground) matters for spawning.

comment Is there a way to transfer a free game downloaded on one Steam account to another?
I am reasonably certain that copying that folder is not necessary — Steam will download as needed — and if you copy that folder entire you copy configuration as well, which may be undesired for giving the files to a different player.

I added info about doing the same on Mac systems to your answer, and a couple other bits of information. Please feel free to revert or further edit if you disagree. (Also, I think I recall successful Mac⇔Windows copies of just the .gcf files, which are the majority of the download size, but I'm not certain.)

comment Can Endermen build Snowmen or Iron Golems?
Sorry. I mean that over the long term, Endermen will repeatedly pick up and drop pumpkins, so a pumpkin may eventually reach your igloo through a random walk from a long distance.

comment How to get the music disc 11 without being in creative or /give command
You have written a general guide to Music Discs. The question is specifically about the "11" disc which is known to be unavailable by the means you have covered.

comment I keep hearing this “thwap” noise that I think is a spawner. How can I best locate it?
@John My understanding is that "Fraps" is good software for recording video and audio from games, and can be used for short videos without purchase. I don't use Windows so I don't have any personal suggestions.

@John Once upon a time, tiny slimes would spawn on peaceful. The wiki says this is currently broken, but maybe it's out of date. I strongly suggest exhibiting an audio or audio+video recording (you asked how elsewhere — please mention your OS so we can recommend software). Or, you could go to your minecraft/resources/ folder and browse the sound files there until you find one that matches what you heard.
