Introducing the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) wiki! Meta

Hi,

We just set up an initial version of a Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) wiki. You can check it out here .

This is something we've been working on for awhile. Special shoutout to /u/stillcouldbeworse for actually finally getting it up and running! This initial version is pretty short to keep it simple and avoid breaking anything, but we expect to be adding to it regularly now that it's up and running. We'll of course be mentioning it in the sidebar or the full wiki as well.

Since this is the first public iteration, you can expect some tweaking as we figure out how to best utilize it. Features/questions/formats might change. And now is probably a good time to ask a few questions for the community-
 

What are some things you want to see in the FAQ wiki?

How do you want to see the FAQ wiki utilized? (ie, should automod sticky a comment linking to the FAQ wiki? filter out FAQs?)

How should it be sourced? Should it link to existing posts (either in this sub or another), external sources?

What threshold do you consider acceptable to be a FAQ?

Any other requests/ideas/questions?
 
And last- while one of the goals here is to help promote a bit more variety in OPs, it is still NOT OK to question-shame FAQs. You can direct them to the FAQ wiki, but do so politely and kindly. You will get a ban, per Rule 1, for rude replies to questions. We get that FAQ posts can be a bit annoying for longtime users, but we still expect you to be polite about it.

Add these two! "why don't incels date each other" And "I have this [normal body part] do men/women find it attractive?".

"Why can't we have straight/white pride day/month?" needs to go up there. Basically "Why can't we have X pride day/month for something that is already the majority, status quo, or accepted?"

One question that's getting way too worn out is the constant asking of the n-word. The FAQ should say to go ask in r/blackpeopletwitter

That's one that definitely made it on the initial version ;)

Given the title of this, shouldn't it be the infrequently asked questions wiki?
