It's not a question, just a suggestion: moderators, can you put the contents of http://sscce.org/ into stackoverflow and introduce them as law such as how to ask questions?

I don't think that page is going anywhere any time soon, so I don't think we necessarily need to copy the content here. We also already link to that page in the Help Center and in one of our "off-topic" close reasons.

Questions concerning problems with code you've written must describe the specific problem — and include valid code to reproduce it — in the question itself. See SSCCE.org for guidance.

I think that makes the SSCCE page as official as it needs to be, considering we already have our own How to Ask guidelines.
