In the tag wikis on the meta sites, the featured tag is described as a special moderator-only tag that is used to highlight important discussions and display them on the main page. I get this, but the FAQ tag is somewhat unclear as it seems to do the very same thing that the featured tag does.
FAQ Tag Wiki:
These questions are the most frequently asked and answered questions on Meta.
So how should the FAQ tag be used? My initial thought was to use it to highlight important information that the community should consider adding to the site's FAQ, or to use it to keep track of discussions or questions that support what is listed in the FAQ already, but I'm not sure this is the correct usage.
Also, should the Community Bulletin board display these questions differently, perhaps by displaying which tag is used to place the question on the main site?
Are questions with these two tags handled differently on the Community Bulletin board or are they treated the same?
NOTE: Sorry about the sloppy handwriting. I think I gave myself carpal-tunnel trying to use Ubuntu to annotate a screenshot.
