Are there cogsci.SE FAQs anywhere? I notice a lot of new participants coming in and of course not knowing that we are a little different than other SEs--more interested in cited evidence, less interested in anecdote/unsupported assertion. I poked about a bit, and I've found references to a CogSci FAQ, but can't find the FAQ itself.

  • The help section at the top? I think that used to be called FAQ.

  • My help drop-down says Back to Tour/Help Center/Meta. Is the Help Center what was formerly known as FAQ? As a side note, the "How to write a good answer" page doesn't seem to address cogsci.SE in particular, just general SE.

  • Yes, quite certain that used to be the FAQ.

Long, long ago in the before time, Stack Exchange sites had a /faq URI containing frequently asked questions. This URL still exists: https://cogsci.stackexchange.com/faq but now it redirects to the "Tour"

Moderators can edit some parts of the Tour, including the introductory text "Cognitive Sciences is a question and answer site for [...] every question about cognitive sciences.", the question under Ask questions, get answers, no distractions, and the Ask About/Don't Ask About under Get answers to practical, detailed questions.

Because that is somewhat limited, there is also the "Community Maintained FAQ" which is done by tagging questions . If you see a question that you think should be in the , then edit it and add the tag.
