We have the possibility to write a default text on the ask form everybody (hopefully) will read before asking his first question. The current text appearing there is:

What's your specific question? Please provide enough details. Note that only graduate - level upward questions about physics (including astronomy) and for physicists important mathematics are allowed.

Any suggestions for improvements or completely different texts?

[DONE even without upvotes, because it is (1) essential and (2) trivial to revert]

When I posted my first post here, I didn't know exactly how to mask links under text. I found out later, but still.

I thought it was just me, but today another user, Jia Yiyang just asked me how to mask links under text. So I think that there should be an instruction regarding this in the custom text.

To mask links under text, please type your text, highlight it, and click the "link" button. You can then enter your link URL.
