Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 153 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

There is a long list of Closed Questions because the question was best suited for another Stack Exchange site.

When I open Stack Overflow, I don't see any description on what type of questions are expected in the site. Similarly there is often a confusion in other sites as well like Programmers, Server Fault and Super User.

I suggest you to include a line below the logo or somewhere on top hinting a new user as to what type of questions are expected.

Some freehand arrows and a freehand circle outlining the location of the FAQ buttong on the Stack Overflow interface.

More freehand circles and arrows outlining the location of the How To Ask box.

Curses! I was beaten. – Josh Caswell Jul 2 '12 at 7:42
    
Ok. Don't need so many arrows to search around FAQ? Why a single line with 4-5 words can't be included? With FAQ there, you already close too many off-topics. – Code1008 Jul 2 '12 at 7:42

@Code1008: Because it is not explained in 4-5 words. – Time Traveling Bobby Jul 2 '12 at 7:43

Those (superb) red arrows should be visible for one or two seconds when you first ask a question on SO (or as long as you ask question without having accepted an answer). – Denys Séguret Jul 2 '12 at 7:46
    
Actually I am trying to post suggested image but I'm not allowed till I gain 10 points overall. – Code1008 Jul 2 '12 at 7:48

@dystroy: Better wrap those elements in <blink>. ;P – Time Traveling Bobby Jul 2 '12 at 7:48
    
@Code1008: You could post the link to it, and someone might inline it for you. – Time Traveling Bobby Jul 2 '12 at 7:48

I like your bulls-eye-styled-freehand-circles. – Time Traveling Bobby Jul 2 '12 at 7:44
    
Thanks! I was trying to fill them in, even, but that was just not possible with a trackpad. – Josh Caswell Jul 2 '12 at 7:44
    
Like this? – Time Traveling Bobby Jul 2 '12 at 7:47
    
No, I was trying to fill them with scribbles. – Josh Caswell Jul 2 '12 at 7:50
    
Oh...well, I'm too lazy to do that. ;P – Time Traveling Bobby Jul 2 '12 at 7:50
    
Looks like an earthquake centered on the faq - well done! ;) – Shadow Wizard Jul 2 '12 at 7:52
