First of all, I really like the new about pages for SE sites. I think they do a much better job of explaining to new users how things work. There is one thing I don't like. Some of the example questions, answers, and comments featured on the about page don't seem to capture exactly what we want these posts to be. I would guess these are probably chosen automatically by the system, but I think we could pick some better examples.
For example, I saw the following question featued on the Code Golf about page:
Now I have no doubt that unicorns are as much a part of the culture at Code Golf as they are here on MSO, but I think it would be best to show a different question on the about page, since elsewhere on the about page it gives these guidelines for questions:
EDIT: Evidently, this post about unicorns and daisies is the default example for SE about pages if certain requirements aren't met. See @slhck's second comment on my post at Meta.SU.
Also, on the Super User about page, I saw the following answer featured:
If you look at the actual question's page, the answer shown as accepted on the about page is just another answer on the page. I don't frequent SU, but from the portion shown on the about page, that looks more like a comment than an answer. (If you look at the actual answer actual answer, it has a few more the words that make it a possible answer rather than a comment, but these are hidden on the about page.)
Now I'm probably being nitpicky on this one, but later on the SU about page, I saw this comment featured (Notice the bad grammar):
I would really rather see the questions, answers, and comments on the about pages being the some of the best on the site. Either someone has a really bad sense of humor (that in this case is probably not beneficial to new users) or the system is automatically picking these examples.
Instead of having the examples on the about page automatically picked by the system as they seem to be now, can these examples be hand-picked by the community, mods, or SE team?
