We had a discussion not too long ago about questions that ask for mods as a solution to a problem:
Is "mod rec" really an umbrella category that we want to use? Or is it confusing the situation?
Closed 'mod recommendation' Skyrim question - Can this question be improved and then reopened?
Community consensus at the time appeared to be that "mod rec" is not the same as "game rec" and should not be treated as a blanket category worthy of immediate closure.
In the past couple of days I've seen a couple of questions closed that ask for mods to solve a particular problem:
A way to increase tile working range
Can I move my Kerbals inside a pod?
In both instances, the close reasons and/or comments appear to indicate that the closure is game-rec related. The former appears to have also requested a config file editing solution, but that was edited out. (Perhaps the file edits were considered gamedev related?)
I'm inclined to reopen the questions, given what I understand to be the current policy on the matter. Before I mod-override all of these votes, I wanted to give the voters a chance to either go back and revisit the previous discussions, call for new ones, or explain why they closed the questions in a way that is consistent with the current meta policies.
