I have seen three programming questions today so far. I am sure these will be deleted soon. I have sometimes commented on these with Wrong site man, please do read the FAQ.
So, My first question: Why some experienced users downvote such questions?
Next, I assume they are really new on Meta so I ask you: please don't be afraid of them. As described in the Quick Start Guide For New Users, we should really try to guide newcomers. Do you remember the Informed Badge? This may force new users to learn about the FAQ or to take the Tour.
So I would like to request a new feature for asking questions on Meta. All Meta users must be given the FAQ to read first. That way we can assume a person who asked a question or answered a question has read the FAQ (roughly or in detail) and he/she will know about some of the rules of Meta. I often see some comments like ...read detail on FAQ.
Please let me quote some text from Meta's About Page:
Why do we need this site?
The FAQ on all sites explicitly disallows meta-discussion, to reduce clutter and noise.
I agree with that, but I think a FAQ section is also needed for this site instead of all the FAQ questions. For instance, as a new user, will not know this post and he/she will ask off-topic questions (such as questions about programming). This is my second feature request for adding a FAQ as a separate page.
... try to refrain from asking questions about this website itself unless you absolutely, positively have to. People don’t come here to learn about the intricacies of this website; they come here to get answers to their questions. Let’s try to help them out by not cluttering up the system with navelgazing meta-discussion.
I don't understand "cluttering up the system with navelgazing meta-discussion". Can this be changed to
as decreasing of questions per a day that means rich and completeness of meta site
I sometimes think Meta activity can lead to create questions about itself (the Winter Bash Event, for example). We ask about those events and answer questions (about getting hats for fun, for example). In my opinion that will cause Meta to get too cluttered. Instead of this you should provide a clear guide, announced on some page, to reduce these questions.
For instance: Winter Bash will start on ..., detail is.... before you start such an event and provide service in chat with some moderators or some experienced users about this event.
