    \$\begingroup\$ Modelled off of the SE network FAQ, incorporating all our meta Qs currently tagged [faq], and given a first pass at categorising. \$\endgroup\$ May 1, 2017 at 6:21

    \$\begingroup\$ (We may need a separate meta Q just to discuss the FAQ Index and do any community organising or decision-making related to it. Comments are undoubtedly going to be inadequate quickly!) \$\endgroup\$ May 1, 2017 at 17:40
  • \$\begingroup\$ Some of these FAQs are outdated or duplicative. Is there a way to clean this up? \$\endgroup\$

    \$\begingroup\$ @Trish Yes! I believe the current guidance for removing items from the FAQ Index is to post a new [discussion] meta proposing a removal. For a larger general cleanup project I think a new [discussion] meta also makes sense. (Aside, perhaps a [faq-management] tag might be useful to keep such metas together without filling up [faq-proposal] or [faq] itself, but that’s a tangential thought.) \$\endgroup\$ Feb 4, 2023 at 19:14
