What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 127 Stack Exchange communities.

The title of the FAQ "question" here on meta used to be Official Stack Overflow Community FAQ. After the introduction of Server Fault and Super User I changed it to The official FAQ for Stack Overflow, Server Fault, and Super User.

But now with Stack Exchange, meta-su and meta-sf everything changed again.

  • What scope should the FAQ have? Should it be for all stack exchange websites, but with a section of stack overflow specific questions (like it is now)? Should it be split in two (one for stack exchange, one for SO)? Or what?
  • What should its title be?

The official FAQ for all StackExchange member sites (and especially StackOverflow)

Just keep it as it is. Because this started as a programmer Q&A site, I would suggest that the new Stack Exchange sites can override the FAQ within their Meta-sites, if they need to.

I personally think splitting it in two would be a good idea. This would reflect what meta.stackoverflow.com is: the meta for all stack exchange websites, and also the meta for stack overflow.

I think for consistency reasons having a FAQ such as What do the Stack Overflow colors mean? in the stack exchange general FAQ wouldn't be ideal.

The titles could be:

  • The official FAQ for Stack Exchange websites
  • The official FAQ for Stack Overflow
