For example, if I ask a question about Game A and tag System 1 but someone provides an answer for Game A on System 2, is that answer off topic, or "Not an answer" since it unrelated to the system at hand?
I ask because I see that this answer to a Battlefield question is for the PC version even though the actual Battlefield question is tagged for xbox-360 and it is currently flagged. However, a while back, I provided an answer to a Skyrim question that wasn't actually tagged for any platform (turned out to be PS3), but was told to answer anyway.
My inclination is that the platform tag is not quite as important as the game tag and that even if it doesn't provide a direct solution to the question, it still provides value to others who might be having a similar issue in the same game.
I'm still unsure of how to handle the situation that I originally stated.
