About the FAQ / Guides category

This category is designed to provide users with a central location for finding answers to frequently asked questions (FAQs) and understanding the guidelines that apply to specific topics or areas of discussion.

Why should people use this category?

  • Saves time: By having a dedicated space for FAQs, users can quickly find answers to common questions without needing to search through other content.
  • Improves clarity: Guidelines help ensure consistency and quality within a topic, making it easier for users to understand expectations and participate effectively.

How is this different from other categories?

Unlike other categories that focus on specific subjects or discussions, FAQs and Guidelines provide a more meta level of information. It’s like a rulebook or instruction manual for navigating other categories.

What should topics in this category generally contain?

  • FAQ sections with clear and concise answers to commonly encountered questions.
  • Guidelines that outline expectations for content creation, participation, or formatting within a specific topic area.

Do we need this category?

Having a dedicated FAQ and Guidelines category can improve the overall user experience. It promotes self-service by empowering users to find answers independently and fosters a more informed and consistent community. Merging this category with another might clutter the information and make it difficult for users to find what they need.
