Having been on Arqade for several years, I know that modded Minecraft (client or server) support is off-topic. There are so many questions related to modded Minecraft, I'd think that it would be reasonable to carve a chunk out for those people and make it a separate site. In the Arqade review queue, I just voted to close around 11 out of 18 or so close votes for modded Minecraft.

There would definitely be no overlap with Arqade, and all of those people trying to get help would finally have a SE site they could use for their craft.

    It's obviously off-topic on an existing Stack Exchange for reasons, where it would otherwise be most suited. What makes you think those reasons don't apply to a separate Stack Exchange?

    I don't necessarily think it's a great idea, but I wanted to solicit feedback nevertheless. It just seems with the overwhelmingly large number of people who have those issues, giving them a place to "call home" so-to-speak wouldn't necessarily be a bad thing. I do think it would be kind of a wild-west/chaotic type scenario, but part of me feels bad for those people who have no idea how to fix their issues.

    Part of me feels bad for people who can't afford lawyers, or doctors, or an electrician or plumber. That doesn't make their questions on-topic for Law or Health or (sometimes) on DIY. They have homes already, on fora like reddit where they can chat and discuss 'til their little red beaty's content.

  • Then it's a "no" from you, got it.

    Software Recommendations were ruled off-topic on Stack Overflow. They got their own site, which launched Nevertheless, I don't think this is a good proposal, because, although there are a few high-quality questions that were closed, modded minecraft crash questions were ruled off-topic because they aren't well-suited to Stack-Exchange-style Q&A, which moving them to a different site doesn't solve.

    I don't disagree with you -- but a solution where those people seeking help can find it would be best, even if SE isn't the answer. Just saying "it's a reddit problem" isn't a good answer to someone looking for help. I basically wanted to foster some communication and ideas to see if there was any viable solution.
