This question is prompted by a discussion following a question on money.SE. The standard FAQ of money.SE is similar (if not identical) to the FAQs on other stackexchange sites, but what would really help is another FAQ with answers to the questions that do indeed truly get asked frequently on money.SE and which could well be closed promptly and the OPs directed to the repository of stock answers to common questions.

Over on math.SE, there is a List of Generalizations of Common Questions that is maintained on the meta.math.SE site. Perhaps the moderators can consider setting up something similar on money.SE or meta.money.SE too? I will nominate @littleadv's recent answer as something that can go on meta.money.SE's List of Answers to Commonly Asked Questions.

    This is a good question but you should ask it at the meta site. I'm migrating it. – Chris W. Rea Aug 30 '12 at 21:03
  • Hmmm I thought I asked the question on meta.money.SE. At least, I clicked on the "Ask Question" link on meta.money.SE and began writing... Oh, well, it got to the right place. – Dilip Sarwate Aug 30 '12 at 21:09
  • I don't think I've ever written on math@SE:) – littleadv Aug 30 '12 at 21:19
  • I just looked at that page on math and my head exploded. – MrChrister Aug 30 '12 at 23:55
  • @littleadv and MrChrister too. Please, folks, I didn't mean that littleadv's answer should go on math.SE's list but on a newly set-up money.SE's list. I have edited my question to make this clear. – Dilip Sarwate Aug 31 '12 at 0:54
  • Oh, I meant to say you got the link to my "recent answer" wrong:) – littleadv Aug 31 '12 at 1:01
  • @littleadv OOOps. Thanks for pointing that out. I just fixed it. – Dilip Sarwate Aug 31 '12 at 1:05

Should we use the tags as the topics? I suggest we fill out the tag wikis and then create a link to the most popular tags in our existing FAQ.
