As per this meta, I've gone ahead and updated the /help/on-topic page. The changes were primarily drawn from these two answers:

Specifically, I've added text about technical support for modded minecraft being off-topic:

And I combined these four lines:

  • Speculative questions about developer intent, with respect to both mechanics and narrative
  • Speculation of the future of the industry and of upcoming releases
  • Catalogues (listing games that fit specific criteria or are like an existing game)
  • Shopping advice and recommendations

into these two lines:

  • Speculations on future of the industry, upcoming (but unreleased) games or content, and developer intent on mechanics and narrative
  • Recommendations for software, hardware, games, or genres

I've unfeatured the other meta, but if any other popular suggested changes pop up in the next week or so I can go ahead and update the /help/on-topic page again.
