As part of the ongoing efforts to better our little piece of the vast universe I intend to update the "How To Ask"

This is our current, and default, how to ask blurb:

Here is one of the custom versions of it. This is from the Hardware Recommendation StackExchange:

For the record, the second box in ours as best I can tell is a Bug. If a Community Manager will allow us to add stuff there I'm all for it, but assume we're only looking at the top box.

I've reworded Ryan's points a bit.

I've left out the extra header, AFAIK the "How To Ask" can't be changed and having two headers feels a bit redundant to me.

I've left out the last point. I can't think of a way to word it and not sound like a douche, and I don't think this is the right place to take issue with these questions; as I said here, I think we need to come up with some clear guidelines first (it's on my todo list).

If your question is about this website, ask it on meta instead.
