I was poking around in the help center and saw this: https://electronics.stackexchange.com/help/how-to-ask-beta

I'm pretty sure this is left over from the EE.SE beta or chip hacker days. It doesn't look like its relevant anymore since I cant add beta questions, in that case some of the stuff in the help center should probably be revised.

  • \$\begingroup\$ I'll start checking the meta before I start asking questions, I didn't realize that most of this stuff comes from the top down \$\endgroup\$ – Voltage Spike Mar 30 '17 at 20:55

This bug has been reported on Meta.SE from January 28, 2017. I'm going to guess that it's a low-priority bug given that it hasn't even gotten an official response in 2 months.
