What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 150 Stack Exchange communities.

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
