I've started a discussion on Programmer's Meta about the possibility of mentioning The Workplace in their FAQ, as they've chronically had a problem of asking general Workplace questions on the site.
Now we'll only do this if:
- Workplace is okay with being mentioned in Programmer's FAQ
- Programmers is okay with mentioning Workplace in the FAQ
So if there's significant objection from either site, we don't do it. Feel free to chime in if you really don't (or do) want to see this happen. We can also ask Programmers to nix the FAQ mention if we feel it becomes a problem later as well.
There's a valid concern voiced by Mark Trapp that we don't want to be the "dumping ground" for off topic questions; a problem Programmers faced/faces with SO's off topic questions. I want it to be clear quality standards remain high on The Workplace, so if this is a concern we can definitely hold off on the FAQ mention.
If we do want this to happen, what should the FAQ text contain? Basically we'll write the FAQ text and Programmers will approve it.
