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. Commented Aug 30, 2012 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. Commented Aug 30, 2012 at 21:09
  • I don't think I've ever written on math@SE:)

  • @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. Commented Aug 31, 2012 at 0:54
  • Oh, I meant to say you got the link to my "recent answer" wrong:)

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.
