I just noticed that we can edit some parts of the about page. If you have a suggestion how to improve it please post it as an answer.

The parts we can edit are:

I. Introduction.

II. The example question displayed.

III. Ask about...

IV. Don't ask about...

Introduction:

September 20, 2013:

Added a link to CS.SE.

June 25, 2013:

Adding a link to our FAQ, plus some rewording.

Theoretical Computer Science - Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for professional researchers in theoretical computer science and related fields.

It's built and run by users as a part of the Stack Exchange network of Q&A sites. We welcome you to join us in asking and answering research-level questions in theoretical computer science.

For undergraduate-level questions please visit Computer Science which has a broader scope.

For more information about the scope please check out our FAQ.

Currently they are as follows:

I. Introduction:

Theoretical Computer Science Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for theoretical computer scientists and researchers in related fields. It's built and run by you as part of the Stack Exchange network of Q&A sites. With your help, we're working together to build a library of detailed answers to every question about theoretical computer science.

II. The sample question displayed:

Coloring Planar Graphs

III. Ask about:

  • Specific research-level questions in theoretical computer science

IV. Don't ask about:

  • Anything not directly related to theoretical computer science
  • Questions that are primarily opinion-based
  • Questions with too many possible answers or that would require an extremely long answer

  • $\begingroup$ Maybe also "Don't ask about things you'd encounter in an undergraduate CS class - CS.SE is a better place for that" ? $\endgroup$ Jun 25 '13 at 19:43

    $\begingroup$ @Suresh, I also thought about that. I think it is good to have a link to Computer Science there. I think your phrasing is a bit harsh though. Some brilliant undergraduates can have questions suitable for cstheory. $\endgroup$
