comment What does backdoor mean in strategy games like DotA or LoL?
It should also be noted for LoL that you can only kill subsequent buildings by having destroyed a building before it. The recent patch has removed turrets destroyed from the scoreboard, despite the fact that the only way to win is by killing turrets and that any character kills are incidental to good pushing strategy. I once won a match where my team went 10-53 because the other team couldn't kill a single turret, but could kill other heros.

comment What does backdoor mean in strategy games like DotA or LoL?
It should be noted for LoL that many players frown upon "backdooring" because they feel it's not a fair fight (personal experience from pushing the crap out of teams with Master Yi). Oftentimes an unbalanced creep push will be called backdooring because everyone else is fighting elsewhere, although this is a misnomer, as a real backdoor requires that no creeps be present.

comment Can snow fall on half-steps?
I've added a third pseudo-question, I hope it's considered relevant enough to this question. If not, I will remove it and create a separate question for it.

hopefully the added question will not change the question too much, if so, I will ask as a separate question.

@Matt, restarting the server removes all the monsters whether spawn monsters is true or not

comment How do I get my chests in Minecraft to face the way I want?
I was under the impression that the "face" of the chest would point toward the player as they placed them. I will have to check this out later.

comment How can I determine which direction I'm facing?
+1, due to the availability of cobblestone, this is a much better answer than most of the others. It's what I use.

comment Why did Stones of Jordan (“SoJ's”) become the “currency” at one point in Diablo 2?
I remember trading 40 P-gems for 1 SoJ. Think of pence vs pounds.

comment Speed up minecarts without using other minecarts?
@Raven Dreamer, agreed, that's why i gave open permission for edits. I've gained more than enough rep from this answer that I don't mind if it eventually turns into a community wiki.

comment Is there a web-embeddable skin preview application?
I guess it's time to create a Flash app to do that. If I have time I'll make one and post it.

comment How much larger is a Lightning Creeper's explosion radius compared to a regular Creeper?
didn't have a flat surface of obsidian readily available. I did have a large beach that i could do some simple testing on though. I'll try the obsidian thing out. Do 3 stacks of TNT create a larger radius?
