I was recently informed that questions involving Minecraft mods are off-topic. As a new user to Arqade who is attempting to help out the community, where should I direct users asking questions on this information?

To be specific, I am referring to questions involving mod-specific crashes, not "gimmeh teh codez" questions.

    It might be true in this particular case, but generally don't take one chat message (from someone who isn't even a moderator) as a blanket statement of site policy. That said, I don't think there is a designated SE site to send questions regarding modded Minecraft crashes. I would suggest the forums for said mod. Do note, however, that mod related questions that aren't technical support are perfectly acceptable. – John the Green Mar 6 '16 at 21:45
  • The related meta is here. There is no other Stack Exchange for these questions because they are not off-topic because we don't like them. They are off-topic because they just don't work as questions in the StackExchange format. – MrLemon Mar 7 '16 at 9:40

If you want to, you direct them to ask the mod creators for support. Beyond that, there's not really much we can do for them.
