Is it possible to add new FAQ "scope"?


Is it possible to add a new "FAQ" scope right beside "All | Unanswered | Followed" on top of the page? Only admin/moderators can apply special "faq" tag to the questions they feel right (or, write it themselves).

When using Askbot for providing support, it could be very beneficial and could save a lot of time.

Maybe using a tag "faq"? and displaying as question --> accepted answer. I think we could create a widget or an RSS feed like that.

One consideration I have - try to not clutter the UI further... Maybe just use the standard FAQ link for that - outside of the scopes?

Even the faq option in stackoverflow doesn't work as expected, because when the goal is not to repeat a same question, you cannot possibly mark something as "frequently asked". I believe that's more of a manual task of moderators, and fits more as community wiki.

I believe you face a lot of question regarding hosting under different environments (Apache, Nginx, WSGI, usgi, fcgi, gunicorn and what not). You could also take benefit from this feature.

Is there any option to mark certain tags applicable by moderators? If all users start to tag faq in their questions, it'll soon be a mess.

And this feature request may also fit nicely with this one:
