The moderators can edit the content of the two boxes under the Get answers to practical, detailed questions section of our /about page.

I just added some text to indicate that self help questions and questions seeking medical advice should not be asked. I'd love suggestions for improving the wording as well as anything else we think should be in these two boxes.

What should we list in the "Ask about..." and "Don't ask about..." sections of the "ABout" page?

  • Thanks for the heads up @Mat! Looks like I'll need to contact a team member about this one. – Josh Aug 26 '13 at 3:57
