The text which appears after closing a question reads:

Questions on Electrical Engineering - Stack Exchange are expected to generally relate to electronics, within the scope defined in the faq.

The FAQ, I think, is good, but this text is bad. When closing a consumer electronics question, the "generally relate to electronics" clause doesn't make sense.

Could we change this to "generally relate to electronics design"?
