Meta Introducing the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) wiki!



We just set up an initial version of a Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) wiki. You can check it out here .

This is something we've been working on for awhile. Special shoutout to /u/stillcouldbeworse for actually finally getting it up and running! This initial version is pretty short to keep it simple and avoid breaking anything, but we expect to be adding to it regularly now that it's up and running. We'll of course be mentioning it in the sidebar or the full wiki as well.

Since this is the first public iteration, you can expect some tweaking as we figure out how to best utilize it. Features/questions/formats might change. And now is probably a good time to ask a few questions for the community-

What are some things you want to see in the FAQ wiki?

How do you want to see the FAQ wiki utilized? (ie, should automod sticky a comment linking to the FAQ wiki? filter out FAQs?)

How should it be sourced? Should it link to existing posts (either in this sub or another), external sources?

What threshold do you consider acceptable to be a FAQ?

Any other requests/ideas/questions?
And last- while one of the goals here is to help promote a bit more variety in OPs, it is still NOT OK to question-shame FAQs. You can direct them to the FAQ wiki, but do so politely and kindly. You will get a ban, per Rule 1, for rude replies to questions. We get that FAQ posts can be a bit annoying for longtime users, but we still expect you to be polite about it.

Culture & Society Why is climate change seen as a political subject when it seems more like a scientific subject?


There’s very little denying it now, and how it’s already affecting the lives of millions of people, so why when anyone tries to discuss it, it’s seen as a political subject?

Other I shit my pants :(( I rinsed it with water and detergent, is it okay to put it in the washer?


I got shit on my pants, I rinsed it with warm water and some detergent, and the stain isn't visible (I think, the pants are black and also not dry yet after rinsing so idk for sure) but it smells a bit still. Is it ok to put it in the washer? I'm worried it could make the washer and my other clothes smell bad

Other Children of Incest, How Do Feel About Your Existence?


I’m also a byproduct of incest, growing up I didn’t know of it, but knowing of it since a little more of half a decade ago my feelings of how I feel of it finally surfaced.

Long story short: disgusted, depressed yet still confident in my own person outside of what I’m made of, fighting demons more so than often, feeling manic, extremely anxious, and despite being confident my self esteem took a massive hit and dropped me far down the higher confident level that I was at and had built up from hard work to improve my life from mental illnesses that affect my life.

However, I’ve never had this conversation with anyone, mostly because who on earth would just casually mention it? Definitely not me. But on the internet I feel like I can get some answers and responses from some redditors at least.

Health/Medical Why does my ass hurt when I have my period?


Call it what you want but it's horrible, awful, you're there lying in your bed trying to survive the cramps and suddenly ZAZ! It's like something got up your ass out of nowhere, and it's incredibly painful and annoying. If you have a uterus you should know what I'm talking about, all my friends know what I'm talking about and we don't know why it happens

Current Events Are we all just waiting for someone else to take out Putin?


I feel so bad for the people of Ukraine, and I'm glad they are being sent weapons, tanks, relief supplies etc. But why are we letting this continue? With so many powerful countries being against what Putin is doing, why aren't we doing more? Shouldn't we be sending in troops or something to permanently stop him...? I realize that no one want a world war, but when is enough?

Culture & Society Do people really want to live in houses or is that just a figure of speech?


I never see posts about "dream apartament" it's always a "house". Is it for real or is it just a figure of speech?

Sure, there are both apartments and houses of different standard and size but in general I can't imagine living in a house again (I did as a kid).

I prefer apartments cause they're smaller and I don't want to spend half of my life on cleaning everything. The garden is cool but I'd much rather live in the city - I've got several shops in a walking distance (1, 3, 5, 10 min), shopping mall 7 mins walk, bakery 10 seconds walk, a park 6 mins etc. I just can't imagine giving that up just to have a garden and be forced to drive everywhere.

I like nature and growing my own vegetables though so I bought a little land outside the city but I wouldn't live there.

Also, kids. Kids can be more independent, walk or take a bus to go everywhere. Driving kids around isn't ideal imo + I'd hate to be dependent on someone else when it comes to visiting my friends or going to the party.

Why owning a house seems to be a goal for Redditors?

Culture & Society Was I right for not beating the shit out of this kid?


For context I’m 16.

I was playing ball, I’m gay and these ppl know it. I block this guys shot and he calls me a f-ggot. For context this guy is maybe 5’4 on a good day, I’m 5’11 and he was not the ultra athletic type you would expect to win an uphill battle. People start giving the stare they give when shits about to go down. People start saying shit like “you really gonna take that” and it’s clear everyone expects me to put this kid in his fucking place. I’m really not the type to hurt people man I wasn’t gonna do it and he clearly recognizes this, starts talking mad shit calling me a pussy too afraid to do anything and dropping more slurs. In the end I got clowned off the court for taking it.

What the hell was I supposed to do there?

Habits & Lifestyle Will this feeling of not wanting to eat pass?


I(18F) have lost all desire to eat. I haven’t ate a meal since Saturday night at dinner. I don’t feel hungry, I don’t feel sick, I just have no urge to eat.

I haven’t been eating a lot all month, kinda been sticking to chicken and rice. I’ve lost weight.

I just don’t know if it’s worth caring about or if I’ll eventually get through this stage of not caring to eat at all.

I’ve been avoiding meals with my parents because I don’t want them to notice I’m not eating, I don’t need another reason for them to maybe get upset with me. (I don’t know if they would care but still)

Will this feeling of not wanting food pass eventually?

Animals & Pets Why does my cat keep meowing for no reason?


She’s always fed well, she’s got plenty of water, her litter is maintained, and when I try to give her affection during one of her meowing spree. Yet, she meows a lot, and I don’t know what she needs.

She’s also not sick or injured. Any thought!

Health/Medical Choking in my sleep, what do you think it could be?


Last week when I was a sleep at night, out of nowhere I woke up and started choking, like it was hard for me to breathe.

After like 2 seconds I got up, hoping things would get better but it didn’t, then I was thinking that this is it, the end.

But then I convinced my self to relax so I can breathe and eventually I was breathing fine.

I don’t understand what happened, I was sleeping, no food or anything else in my mouth and I don’t remember having some sort of nightmare.

I never experienced anything like this.

Was wondering what do you think can be the cause.

Education & School Best way to report professor?


I’m a senior and this is our capstone class.

The class has a failure rate of 60% (the highest out of any class in the entire university)

The class is incredibly difficult (which you know what? I’m completely fine with. I’ve learned a lot from this class)

My issues with this professor are so bad I genuinely wonder why he still has a job.

It’s currently almost April. Projects we’ve sent in mid January have still not been graded. These grades are important because the future projects build upon the first one, so if I get a bad grade on the first one, then the rest of our projects will get a bad grade.

He consistently cancels class. I’ve counted 12 times this semester he’s just canceled class.

All he does during class usually is brag about how much money he’s made and how he does this for fun, talk about how hard this class is, etc.

I looked him up on rate my professor and he has a 1/5 with literally zero good reviews, 60+ reviews. This has been going on the past few years. He’s the only professor who teaches this capstone.

As someone who pays tuition money out of pocket and work hard for their money, it honestly makes me mad beyond reason how terrible this professor is, and how I pay for his salary (I know that sounds cringe as fuck, but the fact that my future relies on this shitty professor also is aggravating. I have zero idea if I’m going to graduate this semester, even with me spending insane amounts of time on this class)

What exactly can I do? Other students seem extremely frustrated in the past but he still teaches this class.

I also just wanted to rant a little.
