Further to Can the About page be improved? I suggest adding something like the following content to the page.
The purpose of this site is to question whether notable claims are true. In general any question of the following form is on topic:
[Reference to notable claim] says, ["quote from the notable claim"]. Is this claim true?
The subject of the claim can be almost any topic: science, pseudo-science, advertisements, quotes, etc.
For further details see:
- FAQ: What are the attributes of a good question?
- FAQ: What makes an answer good on Skeptics.SE?
- Welcome to New Users
The following are a few examples of some well-phrased questions:
- Example 1 (to be supplied)
- Example 2 (to be supplied)
- Example 3 (to be supplied)
The following are off-topic on this site:
- Questions whose subject is not a notable claim
- Answers which don't include references.
