Do “mod-development” questions belong here?

I asked a question yesterday that relates to a custom level design in a game. I am aware of the GameDev.stackexchange.com website; however, I asked it here because I thought it was more fitting and much more likely to get answered than on the other website for a couple of reasons:

  1. It's not really a game development question. It is a question on how to use a level creation tool that comes with the game.

  2. It relies highly on knowledge of a specific game, not on being a good game developer. Therefore it requires views from people that know the game, not from people that know how to develop games.

Although the two points were initially why I posted the question here, I can see that it might not be the best website for posting this kind of question. I wonder if there is a better website for it. Should I have asked the question on GameDev.stackexchange.com instead?

Gamedev.stackexchange is the correct choice for map-making questions.

As per their meta, it's within scope.

  • alright i will flag my question to migrate it to that site. Hopefully it will receive enough attention there
