I think my answer here says it all (and some of the other answers as well). Basically, it's a rule that makes sense for the SOFU trilogy, and not for science sites.

I have no objection to the proposal so I'm not going to vote it down, however I'm not sure how well this is going to work in practice. If you take the Q/A of mine that you link, I wrote this mainly for personal reasons. I had finally got around to working though the analysis of acceleration in Chapter 6 of Gravitation and was feeling really proud that I'd ...

Of course, us experimental types can have practical physics questions. That's because we're practical people. Take that you smarty-pants people!

What should be done with these questions is that some moderator should find the best answers, migrate them all to one of these questions, and close all the others as duplicates.

faq is a meta tag, which are strongly discouraged in the SE system unless they demonstrably and widely serve a useful (crucial?) function for a particular site. (The only meta tag in wide use here is homework, which is definitely critical.) Unless someone can argue convincingly that this is a useful tag (which would probably require identifying and ...

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

It’s physics. There are not so much repeated (actually) questions, but there are several topics prone to misconceptions, such as: • Time and mass in Special Relativity. • Electric charge vs electric potential. • Field potential vs field strength (mainly E-M and gravity). • Charge carriers in conductors and semiconductors – a bunch of misconceptions. • ...

We've already got one of these: How long would it take me to travel to a distant star? John Rennie posted that because there wasn't a good covers everything answer (if I recall correctly, if this is wrong, please correct me) about the question. I would be okay with these types of questions & answers, but I think that they should be made a community wiki.

Fixed. In retrospect, I should have remembered that the Chem FAQ was copied from the Physics FAQ (by me!) when I fixed this and fixed it here as well.

understanding time: Is time simply the rate change? Time, what is it? What is a clock?

Why can't light escape from a classical black hole? Why is a black hole black? If nothing in the universe can travel faster than light, how come light can't escape a black hole?

How do Einstein's field equations come out of string theory? The General Relativity from String Theory Point of View How does classical GR concept of space-time emerge from string theory? Is String Theory formulated in flat or curved spacetime? How does String Theory predict Gravity? In what limit does string theory reproduce general relativity?

How fast does gravity propagate? What is the speed of gravity? Does gravity travel at the speed of light? How faster is the effect of force exerted by gravity? Gravity propagation speed Time Delays in General Relativity Does gravity spread instantly? Does gravity act instantaneously? Consequences of inverse square law with vast distances (Gravity); (in ...

How does gravity escape a black hole? In which direction do gravitons travel? Do they originate from mass or are they collected by masses? Nothing escapes BHs, gravitons mediate gravity, so why do BHs gravitate? Why a black hole sucks nearly everything, but emits gravitons? more...
