Why is the sample question in the site tour page about unicorns and daisies? Everywhere else uses a sample question from their site (to my knowledge).

Tour page question


This is part of the system.

There is an algorithm that determines which questions can be displayed in the tour page. I can't remember exactly what the requirements are, but in general terms it's looking for a short question with no fancy formatting.

Mods can change which question is displayed there, but only from those questions that this algorithm returns. Last time I checked, there weren't any eligible questions - and, having checked again just now, there still aren't any.

    Exactly that, we can't change it. It would be nice though to know which metrics have to be fulfilled so a question qualifies. Does anybody know that?

    @Mnementh I expect there's a post on MSE somewhere that details it, though I can't find it.
