Ding! Hello, new feature! I just noticed a new "Frequently Asked" section on the main page. I'm guessing it's a test of a new feature, like the recent Linked Questions.

Seems cool so far. But what is it populated with? Common dupes? Topics the viewing user asks about a lot? Topics the viewing user searches for a lot? For what it's worth, I'm getting a link to the [faq] tag underneath it.

It's just a list of FAQ links so new Meta users can find the common questions easier.
