- cstheory.stackexchange.com/faq (which I call “FAQ on main” here)
- Official FAQ for Theoretical Computer Science on the meta site (which I call “FAQ on meta” here)
(I am not talking about the FAQ about meta, which serves a different purpose.)
I hope that the new text on the FAQ on main reduces the problem of having two lists by listing some of the most important entries in the FAQ on meta. Still, I cannot help imagining that both pages are claiming I am the official one! I am more important than the other list! Read me first!, which I do not like.
Note that the moderators cannot edit everything on the FAQ on main, although they can edit certain parts of it. In a discussion which happened in comments on this post, Suresh (Feb 4 at 16:22) has suggested merging the FAQ on meta to the FAQ on main by putting everything before the section “What kind of questions should I not ask here?” (if I understand it correctly). I am not sure if that is the best way.
Update: It turned out that Suresh’s suggestion was something different. See the comment.
Other solutions may be:
- Include the links of all questions in the FAQ on meta in the FAQ on main as an itemized list.
- Leave the FAQ page on main as is now, and rename the FAQ on meta to something along “Supplemental FAQ for Theoretical Computer Science.”
