The tour page gives a good introduction how the site works and new users tend to know more about the site. It is helpful for a new user if they read the tour badge.

We still have the default "How to prevent unicorns from eating daisies" as our example question. It would be very nice if we had our own question in the tour page.

A post on mother meta gives some of the criteria for an example question.

The example question should

  • be accessible to the intended audience (perhaps even to the newest and most naive person in that audience)
  • be judged at least decent by the community (positive score)
  • have more than one answer which are also judged acceptable (again positive score)

and its answer gives one more.

Apparently the posts have to be short, with at least two short answers (<=400 chars). They also shouldn't have any crazy formatting.

I think there are some good posts which are fit for the tour page. Adding them to the page would make a user feel more friendly with the site.


A few possible candidates?:

Moderator Edit:

"Weight gain tips for a vegan diet?" is now our example question on the tour page.

    The thing is there should be one than one upvoted answers with no complicated markdown and should have an accepted answer. The last one fits very well. – Nog Shine Jan 6 '18 at 17:34
  • Actually, none of these questions work... >_>. See this meta question for details. – Riker Jan 8 '18 at 3:45
  • @Riker (excuse double ping :S) according to that query the only qualifying question we have is this one – Zanna Jan 8 '18 at 13:01
  • @Zanna indeed. That's definitely true, since that's the only option we get if I click the edit tour button. :( We can always try to clean up some of the other questions, like the weight gain tips one. – Riker Jan 8 '18 at 15:13
