Can we expand the first section of the FAQ to something like this:
What kind of questions can I ask here?
History - Stack Exchange is for historians and history buffs. If you have a question about...
- topic 1
- topic 2
- topic 3
- topic 4
and it is not about...
- topic 5
- topic 6
- topic 7
- topic 8
... then you're in the right place to ask your question!
Please look around to see if your question has been asked before. It’s also OK to ask and answer your own question.
I was thinking something like that format. If you can fill in the topics, that'll be great. This will help solve many problems of off-topic, low-quality questions. Right now this FAQ section is rather vague.
