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?


There is no FAQ anymore, it's the help center now. (If you go to https://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
