I was pleased, one morning, to read THIS:

Welcome to Emacs Stack Exchange

Good answers are voted up and rise to the top.

“The human race has only one really effective weapon, and that is laughter. The moment it arises, all our hardnesses yield, all our irritations and resentments slip away and a sunny spirit takes their place.” — Mark Twain

The tone, though not, obviously, the rather frivolous question itself, seems to be an example related to the following question: How does one properly give a higher score to interesting/funny questions?

While I'm waiting for my letter from Hogwarts, what's up with that?

I found a similar post here, on serverfault.com:

About Page example question is “How to prevent unicorns from eating daisies”

    Is the question asking how to change the "About Page" (which is what Jon answered) or is it asking how to give a higher score to interesting/funny questions? – Malabarba Jun 12 '15 at 9:09
  • // , Is this a question to determine whether Malabarba has a sense of humor? Seriously, it's sort of a "what's up with that" sort of question. Why do I only get two options, here, anyway, @Malabarba? Are there, perhaps, no explanations? – Nathan Basanese Jun 12 '15 at 9:24
  • @NathanBasanese, you might want to have a look at stackoverflow.com/help/how-to-ask. – Joe Corneli Jun 18 '15 at 12:38


There are currently no viable question candidates for the About page

The most likely reason is that Emacs does not have questions with two answers that are sufficiently short.
