Within the proposed FAQ, there is an entry:
questions about techniques in a biological or biochemical laboratory
I think this is spot on. Certainly, if people have problems with a host of procedures or how to accomplish X with Y, we should welcome those questions.
A question like Is there a cheap and easy way to check for potentially unsafe UV exposure? gives me a bit of pause. It's about equipment used to view gels, but it's more about maintenance of said equipment, rather than the role of such in experimental procedures. It's a fine question, but it introduces the possibility of "should I use a power meter (and what kind) to check the mains power when my power supply for electrophoresis won't work? I think the answer of "use a UV meter" is evidence that this question is answerable without requiring any specific biology knowledge.
There was some question as to whether this would be considered off topic, so I figured that opening up the discussion to all, as well as attempting to examine some of the issues with the nascent FAQ would be pertinent.
