In the help center, we have an important question unique to Aviation.SE which is:
Please look around to see if your question has been asked before. It’s also OK to ask and answer your own question.
If your question is not specifically on-topic for Aviation Stack Exchange, it may be on topic for another Stack Exchange site. If no site currently exists that will accept your question, you may commit to or propose a new site at Area51, the place where new Stack Exchange communities are democratically created.
As you can see, it is a little... light on helpful information. Contrast this with Stackoverflow's on-topic page.
We need to guide and direct our new users, and this is a great place to send people who don't quite get what we have in mind.
I am looking for suggestions on how to change our on-topic help center answer to be more helpful and to describe what we are looking for in questions on our site!
