I posted a question concerning the game "Scan Most Bluetooth Devices" and it was closed pretty quickly as off topic. As an avid user of many Stack Exchange Sites I thought I have figured out by now what is considered on- and off-topic - in this case I don't get the reason at all.
According to the FAQ, questions about "Gameplay strategies and tactics" are on-topic and that's what my question was all about. How can I maximize my score/time ratio (gameplay strategy) in a computer game (android games are on topic if I didn't miss something) in a given surrounding (big city, which shouldn't be considered too localized).
Unfortunately no one added a comment why it is considered off topic, at least not by now. Can anyone help me to see what I did wrong and how I can salvage the question?
Although I do not understand why the question at hand gets down voted, I will not ask about that but focus on the answers instead. I came to the conclusion that the main reason for being off topic was that "Scan Most Bluetooth Devices" does not fit the definition of a video game because no direct image manipulation takes place. It also seems inappropriate to ask about strategies that involve factors not entirely controlled by the game itself (like distribution of people). The question was also too localized because cultural aspects were not considered.
Thank you all for the helpful clarifications. Time for some Bluetooth hunting!
