There are many questions which should be on the main site in my opinion. So I'm starting this meta post to vote on questions which could become . Add answers to propose faq questions, and vote on them, .

  • $\begingroup$ What would it mean for a bunch of questions to be FAQ at the end, just attaching the tag? $\endgroup$ – Dilaton Jul 27 '13 at 13:37
  • $\begingroup$ I see, but I think it is good to have such a list such that answers can be added and we can see if they get upvoted. $\endgroup$ – Dilaton Jul 27 '13 at 14:15

    $\begingroup$ Another thing I'd ]to have here on physics SE too is a Request for Reopen Votes meta post such as they have it on Math and MathOverflow. This would allow for a much more democratic (people with less then 3000 rep can take part too) and efficient procedure to reopen questions. The way we do it by discussing each question somebody thinks should get reopend separately at lenght just chokes the issue in a big overhead of unneeded political discussion and condiderations, and nothing gets reopend at the end. $\endgroup$ – Dilaton Jul 27 '13 at 14:20

    $\begingroup$ I mean reopen a question should be much easier and straight forward than it currently is here on physics SE. On Math and MathOverflow they just wait and see if the suggestion to reopen a (corresponding answer) is supported, comments can be taken into account too, and if this is the case it gets reopend without lenghty discussions or making a large political fuzz out of the issue. That simple could life be ... :-) $\endgroup$ – Dilaton Jul 27 '13 at 15:00
  • $\begingroup$ I thought these questions should just get an FAQ tag and that's it, and now all of them are getting closed? With closing all of them I dont agree! The old questions which are just relatd to each other but not duplicates should be left alone. $\endgroup$ – Dilaton Aug 9 '13 at 23:44

    $\begingroup$ There definitely should be one, like the good old usenet one: math.ucr.edu/home/baez/physics $\endgroup$ – Asphir Dom Aug 21 '13 at 22:34

Quantum entanglement faster than speed of light? and its multiple duplicates. We should choose a canonical question.


How fast does gravity propagate?

Do gravitational waves travel faster than light?
