The tour is not a page I visit regularly, so I wouldn’t notice if the example question there later became ineligible for selection and the system reverted to the generic "unicorn" example (as seen on stackexchange.com), which isn’t as helpful as a real question from the site as an example. Can moderators be notified when the example question reverts if they aren’t already?

I expect that this would only happen rarely but it’s important for someone to know so that it can be fixed. (Moderators are the only ones who can change the example question or they can instead raise the issue on meta so everyone can decide.)

    This is particularly important for sites like SFF and Worldbuilding, as the unicorn question looks vaguely on-topic for those sites, and new users might mistake it for an example of a genuinely good question to ask on those sites (it isn't).
