The tour page currently says:

Ask about...

  • Personal investing and asset allocation
  • The financial aspects of homebuying
  • Best practices for saving for retirement, education, and other goals
  • Strategies for creating and sticking to a budget
  • Strategies for earning and saving more money

Don't ask about...

  • Anything not directly related to Personal Finance and Money
  • Questions that are primarily opinion-based
  • Questions with too many possible answers or that would require an extremely long answer

Something important is missing:

Questions seeking product, service recommendations or other off-site resources are off-topic because they tend to become obsolete quickly. Instead, describe your situation and the specific problem you're trying to solve.

Should it be added to the tour page?

I appear to have the power to edit this unilaterally and have just done so:

  • Anything not directly related to Personal Finance and Money
  • Questions that are primarily opinion-based
  • Questions with too many possible answers or that would require an extremely long answer
  • Product or service recommendations or comparisons

I copied the text from StackOverflow's tour.

(I say unilaterally because some other things mods can do to the site setup require the approval of another mod too.)

I did it quickly because it seemed fairly obvious to me, but if anyone disagrees, leave another answer and we can always undo this.
