When a question offers the option of being answered in terms of magic is it still valid for this site?
I was reading this question, currently phrased as:
Could someone give me an explanation – realistic or magical – as to what could cause a continent the size of, let's say Europe, to go rapidly underwater in a matter of 100-500 years?
And the addition of "realistic or magical" opens up the question to a very broad range of answers, as highlighted by this answer where a (new) user outlines a perfectly feasible plan for one of the endless examples of how magic could be used to solve the problem but we could have millions. Perhaps someone opened a magic portal to a world full of water and can't turn it off or maybe a desert tribe found a spell to turn sand into water but its got out of hand...the possibilities are endless so, I think, the question is too broad but only whilst it has the option of magical solutions.
However no one has tagged this as off topic because, I think, the "realistic" option is still there.
