The comment from @Gnemlock reflects my opinion too: We do not close questions because they are better suited, elsewhere. We close questions because they are not suited, here. As is, we do accept questions regarding 3D; especially those regarding 3D in context of game development. Keep in mind that a professional game developer is quite vague. An artist ...

This sounds great in theory, but it also assumes that users are going to do some research, even if direct links to possibly useful information are provided for them and they don't have to look it up themselves, they still have to read the content. Truth of the matter is we already do that for them: This obviously isn't an answer to the problem as a whole ...

A disputed flag is a flag that has been deemed invalid by a 10k+ user but not checked by a moderator yet. For more information: https://meta.stackexchange.com/a/95277

If there are no other comments and you're going to down vote the question/answer, it's polite and useful to post a comment. The FAQ specifically asks you to do so. It's part of the etiquette of the site. Without the comment, the down vote is fairly worthless. I believe someone asking for a comment to explain a down vote is the same as asking someone to ...

I saw the question through the review system and voted to keep the question open. This rejected your flag. A few hours later another moderator migrated the question to Stackoverflow. The question was closed as a migration. Later, the migration was rejected, making the question set to closed as off topic here. So your flag was rejected before the attempted ...

I've removed the offending account. The best thing to do is flag. If a post gets enough flags it will automatically be removed. Otherwise, one of the moderators will respond to the flags within a short period. Thanks for letting us know.

Voting to close should be your go-to action when you see questions that are off topic, unclear or duplicates. Flagging should be used when a question needs moderator attention. This is used for spam, offensive posts or other situations where moderator intervention is needed. Flagging to close allows lower rep users to bring questions that should be closed ...

This is a problem that obviously isn't going to go away. As Josh said, people don't read dialog boxes (IME they don't even read "readme"s) so no matter how this information is conveyed during the sign-up process, it's just not going to work. Maybe it's the case that we're taking the wrong tack here. Closing these questions as off-topic is frustrating for ...

Jeff said (on MSO): This would require many, many queries per page load per logged on users. So: No.

Moderators can move to any site. If you'd like to make a suggestion for a moderator to move to that, just use the regular "flag for moderator attention" feature.

The argument of "Would a game developer offer a better answer than anybody else" reflects a much stricter scope than what we allow, here. The general rule of thumb would be to ask if a game developer would be able to answer the question, with a confident and absolute answer. We do not necessarily apply the rule of "would a game developer provide the best ...

I agree with the points about it being on-topic as relevant to game development. I don't think it's necessarily too broad. The concept is broad & part of the question is asking about the the concept in very general terms. However, OP also has provided a context - they tried something & it didn't work they way they expected & they're trying to ...

I felt it was on topic enough to warrant attempting an answer. That being said, I don't think it's a particularly good question. It doesn't demonstrate much research & as written, it's applicability to others is limited. In general, I tend to flag 'em as I see 'em. If the mods disagree, your flag will be declined. If you don't understand the reason for ...

This was fixed by the recent StackExchange-wide update to flagging and closing. There is now a bracketed number next to the flag link if you've already raised flags on that post: The flagging dialog box also does not show options to raise flags of the kinds you can't raise anymore:
