I've received some polite assistance in comments about how to keep my questions here on-topic. Reading the guidelines though, it wasn't obvious to me at all that what I asked was off-topic.
One question I had was whether or not something was a bug. I was told I couldn't ask that question, because it's asking about "developer intent".
In another question I asked, regarding another bug that I couldn't directly ask if it was a bug, if a mod existed to fix it. That is also frowned upon because it's "asking for a recommendation".
I don't know about everyone else, but these seem to be the biggest categories of question there are to ask about games in general: 1. "is this broken", and 2. "what, if any, fixes exist"?
Is there an area I can read more in depth about this site's guidelines, case studies, rationales, than what's available in the help area?
Oh, and is this question on-topic for meta? In that case, is there a meta-meta site?
