      Description

      Hello, and sorry, I realize this is not the correct place to be posting this. The problem is, there is no correct place to be posting this - but I still feel it needs to be posted.

      The Minecraft Wiki bug report page, though cumbersome in many regards, had an important feature which this new system critically lacks. There is no proper place to report annoyances. Issues in translations or textures are not bugs, and thus there is no place to report them. Issues in game balance, such as those caused by new additions to the game, cannot be properly pointed out to Mojang. And just plain annoying things, such as bat noises, also have no valid category in this system.

      I have seen numerous users complain in comments on this system that they don't want to try passing off annoyances as bugs, but are forced to do so anyhow, or otherwise leave them unreported. This system could be great for organizing the workflow of Minecraft development - but the lack of an Annoyance category means actual issues are either left unreported or reported in the wrong format/place - neither of which is particularly helpful to the reporters, the maintainers of this system, or Mojang themselves.

      If there is a better place to open this discussion, please direct me to it before you close this issue. Thank you for reading, and I hope we can improve upon this rather promising new system.

      Just for the heck of it:
      What I expected to happen was:
      There would be an Issue Type of "Annoyance", "Improvement", or anything similar.

      What actually happened was:
      The only Issue Type allowed for Minecraft was "Bug", which is ridiculously restrictive considering our previous system.

      Steps to reproduce:
      1. Sign in to your account here.
      2. Click "Create Issue" button near the top.
      3. Choose to report an issue in the project "Minecraft".
      4. Try to choose any Issue Type other than "Bug". Observe no such option exists.
