There appears to be no real objection to the list of "acceptables" and "unacceptables" that have been presented below over the course that this question has been setup. This is a last call for any additions, removals, or concerns on an updated FAQ.
We started off with a FAQ building question, one which we really didn't use, because our needs and style evolved to invalidate it. The FAQ has been updated a few times, but only to add small bits for shopping recommendations. A recent game rec brought to mind that the FAQ isn't really that clear, and the word choice doesn't really help. Fact is, game-rec applies to repositories in general.
I wanted to do some revisions, mostly in the line of the Seasoned Advice FAQ. They talk about the categories of allowed questions, then cover a bunch of cooking-related questions that are not on-topic. That looks just like what we need.
But... our list of "What you can ask" is... terribly non-descriptive. It highlights 3 classes of platforms, without saying anything about the kinds of questions you can ask about those platforms. So, I can't even make as smooth a transition. And rather than hammer this all out in secret, I figured let's work on fixing this together.
How would you describe the kinds of questions we can actually field, in simple bullet points? How do you define the kinds of questions we handle, outside of the basic "Puzzle solving and level/boss strategies" which would probably be our first bullet point? What can we do to demonstrate what is acceptable in a way that can lead into a simple "What about other gaming-related questions" that we can then list off the kinds of unacceptable questions?
