Since we have a nice about page and the top section can be edited by moderators in the same way that the What kind of questions can I ask here? FAQ entry can be edited, I was wondering what we want to put in there.

The default contents are:

Robotics is a question and answer site for professional robotic engineers, hobbyists, researchers and students. It's built and run by you as part of the Stack Exchange network of Q&A sites. With your help, we're working together to build a library of detailed answers to every question about robotics.

If you have any suggestions about how we could improve our about page, it would be great if you would post an answer with your proposed about content.

Before posting a suggestion, I would highly recommend reading Shog9's answer to the question What should we put on our About page? over on meta stackoverflow.


The default is very informative, but it might be interesting to see if we can remove the unicorn question and add a more relevant question. Otherwise it looks a little generic. Other SE sites do this, as far as I know.

  • $\begingroup$ Note that now we have more content, the Unicorn question has now been replaced by a more representative question. $\endgroup$ – Mark Booth May 16 '13 at 10:04
