Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 157 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

A year ago, someone asked:

The official FAQ for Stack Overflow, Server Fault, and Super User (should perhaps be renamed to include SE-2.0?) is quite informative, but there is no prominent link anywhere at parent sites.

Why isn't it at least linked in the FAQ linked to at every single page?

This was brushed off by Jeff with:

Because I think the community FAQ as it exists today is an unreadable, un-navigable mess.

Very well, but that's no longer the case.

More recently, someone else asked:

Could you add a link to the Community Faq to the faq?

This was answered in a very SO-specific way:

You can find the link for tagged questions in the Stack Overflow faq - what about section actually

(And the answer was accepted.) While that answer is applicable to SO, it has no application to the various SE2.0 sites. They link (in their own /faq pages) to their own metas' faq-tagged questions, but do not link to MSO's.

So at the risk of beating a dead horse, I'll ask again:

Can each site's /faq#what-about please link to "FAQ for Stack Exchange sites"? It's a valuable resource for users of all sites, with information not anywhere else coherent.

As these new sites splinter off more from the community that actually knows what MSO is, this could be helpful. – Tim Post Oct 3 '11 at 17:52
This is a good idea, but the community FAQ is still an unreadable, un-navigable mess. – Pops Oct 3 '11 at 17:54
@PopularDemand, it's really not. I go to that page, search in my browser for delet, and I get exactly what I'm looking for. Same for comment (second search result), etc. But even if it is unreadable and unnavigable, a link to it is still better than none. – msh210 Oct 3 '11 at 17:57
