It appears to be that the FAQ tag on meta is used for the questions that are most frequently asked on the meta site. What if I want to post something about the FAQ page on the main site, like Yes / no questions? Is that possible? If it isn't, can it be added?

So can there be a new tag main-faq or about-the-faq?

  • \$\begingroup\$ This question doesn't make a lot of sense - Do you expect special treatment for questions that regard the FAQ? \$\endgroup\$ – Chris Laplante Feb 5 '13 at 18:36
  • \$\begingroup\$ No, I want normal treatment for them, so that we can use the faq tag for questions about the main faq. We cannot tag questions about the main faq now. \$\endgroup\$ – user17592 Feb 5 '13 at 18:37
  • \$\begingroup\$ New tag: "about-the-faq". \$\endgroup\$ – The Photon Feb 5 '13 at 18:39
  • \$\begingroup\$ Oh, ok, so you want a tag created for the site's FAQ. I forget the policy about tag creation on Meta sites for non-mods. \$\endgroup\$ – Chris Laplante Feb 5 '13 at 18:40
  • \$\begingroup\$ Yeah, that's what I want, @ThePhoton. I updated my question. \$\endgroup\$ – user17592 Feb 5 '13 at 18:57

    \$\begingroup\$ I think we need a Meta-Meta-EE site for questions about the Meta site. \$\endgroup\$ – The Photon Feb 5 '13 at 19:03

I think that certain tags should be created as mentioned in the question. The tags could be :

  • main-faq or site-faq : Questions about the main FAQ

  • meta-faq : Questions about

  • faq : The actual questions on Meta

These are similar to tags used on MSO

  • \$\begingroup\$ I totally agree, but am not sure about meta-faq. Could you give a usage example? \$\endgroup\$ – user17592 Feb 21 '13 at 17:12
  • \$\begingroup\$ @CamilStaps That would really depend on there being some questions in meta being tagged faq first meta.electronics.stackexchange.com/questions/tagged/faq Additionally, you could see this meta.stackexchange.com/questions/tagged/meta-faq There are some questions there. \$\endgroup\$ – asheeshr Feb 21 '13 at 17:18
  • \$\begingroup\$ Oh, wait, I see. @Kortuk, why did you set this to status-declined? I'd say this is a good idea. \$\endgroup\$ – user17592 Feb 21 '13 at 17:20
  • \$\begingroup\$ @CamilStaps Clarification, are you referring to faq or /faq (electronics.stackexchange.com/faq) in your feature-request ? \$\endgroup\$ – asheeshr Feb 21 '13 at 17:31
  • \$\begingroup\$ /faq, so what will be main_faq in your solution. \$\endgroup\$ – user17592 Feb 21 '13 at 18:10

The is a special tag for questions on the site that are asked frequently. It cannot be reporposed. Additionally, only a small portion of the actual main site FAQ is editable, primarily the "What kind of questions can I ask here" section.

  • \$\begingroup\$ Sorry for any misunderstanding, what I meant was can there be a new tag about the main FAQ? I updated my question accordingly. \$\endgroup\$ – user17592 Feb 5 '13 at 18:58
