@IsaacMoses That's a shame. He's posted an addendum, though.

@SethJ Good for him!

@DoubleAA Picking up conversation from the comments on this (which you can feel free to delete): What in the About page can you edit? The "Get answers to practical, detailed questions" part?
Oh, I see this:
6
A: Allow mods to edit a section of the about page

GillesIn the new /about page, moderators can edit the first paragraph: In addition, there are subsections titled “Ask about” and “Don't ask about” that moderators can edit.

... It doesn't list the moderators anymore?
 
4:45 PM
For those wondering where the list of moderators went: apple.stackexchange.com/users?tab=moderators Yay! We have a tab under users now :) — NullUserException อ_อ Jan 10 at 16:47
 
@msh210 Oh. That makes a lot of sense. Thanks
@DoubleAA @msh210, Why doesn't the new About page reference the FAQ anymore?
 
@IsaacMoses By design I suppose.
 
... but aha! I see that they gave you the ability to put links in the top paragraph (nice), and you linked "Mi Yodeya" to judaism.stackexchange.com/q/9/759 , so that takes care of making sure that those who want to know what the name means can discover as much on the About page
 
@IsaacMoses How do you know that was us?
Can you see the edit history on that paragraph?
 
@DoubleAA no.
@DoubleAA Oh. I just assumed it was, since it does a good job of representing the site, which you are particularly good at
Was it not?
 
4:52 PM
@IsaacMoses Well, a mod did edited in that link last night, but the rest of everything on the page is currently what it came with.
 
@DoubleAA One can guess about which mod based on the "share" suffix in the link. :)
 
@IsaacMoses What share suffix?
 
@DoubleAA, you guys didn't do the "Get answers to practical, detailed questions" section?
@DoubleAA "/759"
 
@IsaacMoses Not seeing it :)
 
@DoubleAA I F5ed before you commented, guessing that there might - poof - be a change there :)
 
4:55 PM
@IsaacMoses Still in factory packaging. If you have suggestions for edits I suppose meta is the place to bring it up.
 
@DoubleAA I guess the "do"s come straight from the FAQ section of the same purpose, and the "don't"s are boilerplate
 
@IsaacMoses Wait, the community team is not the same as the community user???
 
@DoubleAA The community user is a bot
 
@IsaacMoses Yes, and it was the community team that added the initial text. I'll still call that factory settings, even if they aren't a bot.
 
@DoubleAA Well, not bad, though I guess it would be good to get some of the sense of the FAQ's "don't" section into About's "don't" section, and it's a shame to lose the "examples" links
@DoubleAA Would you consider editing some form of the Disclaimer into the top paragraph
 
5:00 PM
@IsaacMoses Certainly. Would you like to suggest a formulation?
 
@DoubleAA I would. Maybe later.
@DanO'Day, hi! Check out what our kindly mods put in as the first link on the About page.
 
@IsaacMoses wow! That's impressive and much easier to follow.
I'm glad to see they did that - better for newcomers'
 
@DanO'Day Indeed. SE did a nice job
