The site tour page shows an example question for the purposes of showing how the Q&A model works. On most sites that haven't configured it, it shows a generic "unicorns eating daisies" question.

Per a prior community discussion, it was determined that this generic question was not suitable as it is a "what should I do" question, which is explicitly off-topic here. It was supposedly changed by a moderator to this question.

However, I just navigated to the tour page and it still shows the generic "unicorns eating daisies" question. Is this a bug?

I did indeed change the question on the tour page earlier, as I said in the post you linked.

Since then, the question and one of its answers were edited.

As a result, it's no longer eligible to be displayed on the tour page, and IPS has no other questions that fit the criteria, so apparently the system has automatically reverted the tour page to the default "unicorn" question.

  • What do you think of the "artificial question" idea, in my comment on the question?

  • Also, I'm preparing a Meta.SE post asking for a better way to make tour questions, without having to resort to the tricks employed in the prior case.

  • I think that should be its own separate meta discussion, so we can discuss whether we want to do that here and what to make the question.
