Sorry but I don't have enough reputation to ask this question on meta so I an asking it over here.

The question is:

Is Lumber Tycoon 2 a suitable game for this site? It's a multiplayer game based on Roblox.

    You don't need any reputation to ask on meta. And almost any game is on-topic here. – Fabian Röling Jan 29 '18 at 12:33

    From what I can tell, it's a mod of Roblox. Is that correct? Then, yes, you can ask about it. – Frank Jan 29 '18 at 12:39

    be sure to take a look at the tour as a question about a game doesn't make it automatically on-topic, for instance we don't accept questions on pirating a game or doing anything that violates the Terms and Conditions and questions asking "can my PC play this game" are generally poorly received by the community – Memor-X Jan 29 '18 at 12:52
  • 1. Don't ask meta questions on the main site. 2. Why would it not be allowed? 3. A game on a computer, console, phone, etc. is always a video game. That is its definition. – Fabian Röling Jan 29 '18 at 13:04

    so can i ask it and i didn't know that it was free to post questions on meta I taught that it would be a 5 reputation like other sites but can I ask question about the definition-video game -lumber tycoon 2??? – A Cool Guy Jan 29 '18 at 13:09
  • @Fabian - a user needs at least 5 reputation to post on meta. – Robotnik Jan 29 '18 at 13:15
  • Really? Why is that so? – Fabian Röling Jan 29 '18 at 13:38
  • Btw, you can always ask on meta.stackexchange.com. Better than on the main gaming site. – Fabian Röling Jan 29 '18 at 13:44

    @Fabian Questions about specific sites, like this one, are off-topic on MSE and will get closed. Asking on the main site, then waiting for migration is the only way that users with less than 5 rep (and no posts) can get to meta. – Laurel Jan 29 '18 at 17:11
  • But that's a bad way of handling that. Is there really no other way? What if someone wants to abide all the rules and sees no way to post such a question? – Fabian Röling Jan 29 '18 at 18:08
  • @Fabian - It's a perfectly fine way to handle it. All users with Close and Reopen privileges have the tools to manage it: Close -> Off-Topic -> This question belongs on another site... -> belongs on Meta. Given question traffic is higher on the main site, I imagine the 5 rep requirement exists so confused first-time users don't ask actual questions on meta sites, which would result in more community effort to move them over to main than the current situation. – Robotnik Jan 30 '18 at 1:04
  • In fact the 'Participate in Meta' privilege listing goes over why there's a 5 rep minimum: "...Because we allow anonymous participation, we require a small bit of parent site reputation to prevent spam, and ensure that meta is for active, engaged members of the community." – Robotnik Jan 30 '18 at 1:06

Hello and welcome to the site!

Yes, in general, questions to do with Lumber Tycoon 2 would be on topic here.

We do have some types of questions which aren't a good fit for us, so check out our Help Center Article on Asking for more information, but generally, so long as your question is clearly worded it should do fine.

If a tag does not yet exist for a game, just tag it with the closest match, such as the console or platform that you play on. In this case, as Lumber Tycoon 2 is a mod of Roblox, tagging with the tag would also work.

You can request a tag be created in the comments of your question after you post it.

I hope this helps and you get the answer you're looking for!
