I was just checking the about of GIS SE and I found the about details completely irrelevant to GIS.

Should it not describe more about the details of GIS?

    The 'about' page is a generic SE page. You probably want to be reading our faq.

  • FAQs are good but shouldn't each about page be descriptive specific to forum. Why is it generic?

  • Huh @R.K., actually there is nothing relevant in the about page for GIS. It has the same Venn Diagramm which is no way related to the GIS. What did u find relevant in the about page for GIS?

  • Are moderators even able to edit this page? Oct 19 '12 at 21:15
  • The "About" page now redirects to the Tour so I think this question is now obsolete.

The About Page is for information about the GIS StackExchange site, not about GIS.

The current GIS SE About Page states who the site is for

This is a free, community driven Q&A for cartographers, geographers and GIS professionals. It is a part of the Stack Exchange network of Q&A websites, and it was created through the open democratic process defined at Stack Exchange Area 51.

what sets it apart from other sites and how you may use it.

I think it's a good about page.
