The mathoverflow site has a great FAQ. What are some key points that the FAQ for this site should make?

it might be useful to resurrect this question for a while

Question? Does the FAQ include any of these things? Doesn't seem to...

no, I don't know who would update it. Another approach would be to post these as separate question/answer pairs -- I think I'll try that with the syntax question

Editing tips.

There isn't anything particularly helpful included near the "Your answer" text box (except, of course, the buttons :). If there's an easy way to link to other posts, or to particular pages of the sage documentation, that would be useful information.

What is the relation of asksage with ? Eg. "Getting started with Cython" was very interesting, but the 'NEXT TIME' announced was never wroten. Of course everybody can understand that William Stein may be overbooked :-) but is it a deliberate strategy to abandon the blog in favor of asksage ?

I've never heard of a relationship between asksage and William's blog. If anything, this site is more comparable to the sage-support mailing list, although the two are different enough that they both continue functioning more-or-less independently.
