It's been pointed out that the "How to Ask" box that appears when a user is asking a question doesn't mention that TCS Stack Exchange is for research-level questions only. Is that something we can change or is it fixed by the powers that be?
I agree completely. I suggested something similar earlier this year, but it never got implemented. I still think it's worth a try, and I like your suggestion.
As it happens, it looks like something similar had been previously requested back in 2012, but that never got implemented either.
Maybe if we can get some attention from the StackExchange team, they can help us figure out how to edit the information in the "How to Ask" box.
