I came about a blog post written by Jon Skeet towards the end of last year entitled Writing the perfect question (He also has a post entitled Answering technical questions helpfully). In it he offers some very good advice for writing good questions on SO. Some of the advice might not translate to PSE very well but I believe that most of it will.
Seeing that there has been a lot of discussion here in the past few days about some of the deep rooted issues with the site (closing questions, viral up voting, good answers...), I wonder if this is a good time to discuss updating our FAQ? We could incorporate some of Jon's advice or add a section for answers (as most of the FAQ is about quesitons).
Is it time to update our FAQ? What should be changed/added/removed?
