Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 155 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

I can't find the FAQ link on SO, where it used to be. Now it may have been moved or something but the fact that I have to look for it disturbs me. I was going to point the OP of this question to the FAQ and I was left scrambling for the link. What gives?

Point to help center instead, would work? – Aziz Shaikh Jun 27 '13 at 13:35

There is no FAQ anymore, it's the help center now. (If you go to http://stackoverflow.com/faq you will be redirected to the help center.)

Also, you can just type [help] in the comments and it will automagically link to the help center. You can see an example in the comments below.

Type [help] and get help center – Doorknob Jun 27 '13 at 13:36
    
Ah. Now I know. But isn't the "FAQ" title more traditional? As in first timers (and somewhat older hands) would be looking out for an FAQ link? – kolossus Jun 27 '13 at 13:38
    
@kolossus generally it's now advisable to send folks to either specific pages of the help center for their specific issue or to the [about] page – wax eagle Jun 27 '13 at 13:38
    
@kolossus I guess that's just a matter of opinion, and the SE team apparently thought "help center" was a better name. – Doorknob Jun 27 '13 at 13:38
    
You can also type [FAQ] in a comment to get a link like this: FAQ – Danny Beckett Jun 27 '13 at 13:39

Yes, there's [help] help center, [FAQ] FAQ, [ask] How to Ask, [answer] How to Answer, [about] tour, etc. – Doorknob Jun 27 '13 at 13:40
    
@Doorknob, thanks. You sure know your FAQ-isms. Hey, it works! – kolossus Jun 27 '13 at 13:55
