How can a question be added to this FAQ?

  • Link back to this index. Paste this at the end of the question:

    [Return to FAQ index](/q/362)

  • Tag as and . When a post seems to hit a mature state, it will have added by a moderator.

  • Flag for a moderator to mark community wiki. Any FAQ post not yet community wiki should be made into a community wiki.

  • Add a link in the above table of contents.

  • Ask only the question, stated plainly and simply, in the question body. The answer goes in an answer.

  • Do you think a homework question FAQ would be required for this site? Obviously the answer would be different from SO, but I'm not sure if the question is even relevant here. We have gotten some homework questions in the past. – commando Apr 27 '12 at 14:51
  • @commando sure! Please feel free to write up the question if you have an idea about how to formulate it. There are a lot of areas in which we could build out the community FAQ -- I have been thinking about posing this as a question in it's own right, "What's missing from the community FAQ?" or something – Joseph Weissman Apr 28 '12 at 22:52
