Mi Yodeya has a beautiful, new About page, and our moderators have the new ability to edit some parts of it. One particularly flexible power is that they are able to edit the initial paragraph, which currently reads:
The current initial paragraph is:
Mi Yodeya is a question and answer site for those who base their lives on Jewish law and tradition and anyone interested in learning more. It's built and run by you as part of the Stack Exchange network of Q&A sites. With your help, we're working together to build a library of detailed answers to every question about Judaism.
Would it make sense to add some form of our professional advice disclaimer in this opening paragraph? I believe that the distinction between a rabbi who provides personal professional advice and a crowdsourced information community is an important part of what we are about, and that this could therefore fit there, thematically. In addition, I maintain, as I have in previous meta posts about this disclaimer, that it's important to display it as prominently as possible, to try to keep from misleading readers.
If you disagree with this suggestion, please feel free to downvote and/or to post an answer explaining why.
If you agree with this suggestion, please feel free to upvote and/or to post an answer with suggested wording that would fit near the top of the About page.
