# FAQ tag not about main site FAQ

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?

• This question doesn't make a lot of sense - Do you expect special treatment for questions that regard the FAQ? – Chris Laplante Feb 5 '13 at 18:36
• 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. – user17592 Feb 5 '13 at 18:37
• New tag: "about-the-faq". – The Photon Feb 5 '13 at 18:39
• 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. – Chris Laplante Feb 5 '13 at 18:40
• Yeah, that's what I want, @ThePhoton. I updated my question. – user17592 Feb 5 '13 at 18:57
• I think we need a Meta-Meta-EE site for questions about the Meta site. – 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

• I totally agree, but am not sure about meta-faq. Could you give a usage example? – user17592 Feb 21 '13 at 17:12
• @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. – asheeshr Feb 21 '13 at 17:18
• Oh, wait, I see. @Kortuk, why did you set this to status-declined? I'd say this is a good idea. – user17592 Feb 21 '13 at 17:20
• @CamilStaps Clarification, are you referring to faq or /faq (electronics.stackexchange.com/faq) in your feature-request ? – asheeshr Feb 21 '13 at 17:31
• /faq, so what will be main_faq in your solution. – 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.

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