A question was recently bumped by Community. This question is about , but not in the context of game development.

We typically allow Blender questions, but since StackExchange has a site just about it, should we have the rule that if the question is not about game development, we close the question and/or ask for migration?

FWIW, we have this meta question, that says that this kind of question should be asked on blender.se, and the tag itself suggests this too. I'm asking if we should formally consider those off-topic. This would allow mods to close them on sight, and non-mods to refer to something when voting to close.

    \$\begingroup\$ Yes, the apparent consensus is that they should be asked on Blender, but should is not mandatory. There is this pandemic now, our governments tell us that we should not travel abroad, but since it's not forbidden people do it anyway. \$\endgroup\$

Officially off-topic, refer them to BSE in my opinion.

    \$\begingroup\$ I don't see a compelling reason not to off-topic Blender questions that aren't about game dev. Even in the grey area of "a game dev would give better answers to my question", the question would need to be framed in a way that would make it game dev related. Not game dev related means not on-topic. \$\endgroup\$
