It seems like it would be useful if we could link directly to a subsection of the Community FAQ.

When I encounter a poor question, I try to point new users to information about asking good questions, recently I added the following comment to a question:

You're likely to get more help if you include more info in your question. Some links about asking questions: How do I ask questions here?How do I ask questions here?, How to Ask QuestionsHow to Ask Questions, Community FAQ: Asking questions.

I included the last one (Community FAQ: Asking questions), because the first section is about asking questions. But, if I had wanted to link to information from a different section, I would have needed to say something like "follow this link and then search for the section entitled XXX." Not nearly as useful as linking directly to the pertinent section.

The third link is "FAQ for Stack Exchange sites", I'm suggesting that each header on that page be an anchor link. Some examples:

This link would lead to the section "Asking questions"
https://meta.stackexchange.com/questions/7931/faq-for-stack-exchange-sites#Asking_questions

This link would lead to the section "Editing and Formatting"
https://meta.stackexchange.com/questions/7931/faq-for-stack-exchange-sites#Editing_Formatting

This link would lead to the section "Moderation"
https://meta.stackexchange.com/questions/7931/faq-for-stack-exchange-sites#Moderation

I did a search for questions containing "Community FAQ" and searched the most likely results for "link", the only mention I found was Experimental Stack Exchange /faq Improvement Project. It had an item:

  • it is not easy enough to link to specific sections in the /faq

But that was referring to the faq page for each site.
