Crashes etc. of modded Minecraft are off-topic here. But what is the appropriate flag?

  • The content is not unreleased or illegal.
  • It's not about game design/development.
  • It's not asking to identify or recommend a game.
  • It has to do with gaming.
  • It doesn't belong on a different SE site.
  • If you can't yet Vote to Close: Flag -> Should be closed -> Off Topic -> Custom Reason for "Modded Minecraft Tech Support" – Robotnik Jan 5 '18 at 21:54

    @Robotnik I'm pretty sure that doesn't appear for those who can't actually close. Best they can do is a blantantly off-topic flag. – Frank Jan 5 '18 at 23:50

    @Frank - ah, fair enough. I hardly ever visit the flag option these days. 'Blatantly off topic' would also work. – Robotnik Jan 5 '18 at 23:54

I think most people vote to close the question as either unclear what you're asking or too broad. Both of these reasons fit well enough, since without a list of mods the question is obviously unclear (since we don't have enough info to accurately assess the situation to begin with), or if they do have a list, it's still too broad because any of those mods could be causing the issue.

  • I think it's worth pointing out the list of error codes for Minecraft question we have. Although its for vanilla Minecraft, we get a lot of crash questions for the vanilla game as well that include an error code of some sort. A lot of the time, we can close them as a duplicate of the error code question. – Timmy Jim Jan 11 '18 at 16:48
  • A question was asked today about Forge: Whenever the person wants to start the installer, it opens as archive instead. That is a technical issue with modded Minecraft, but it isn't broad or unclear, so I didn't flag it. Was that correct? Technically it would have been better on SuperUser ("how to execute .jar"), but not really accepted for migration, because it's low quality. – Fabian Röling Jan 17 '18 at 9:45
