You are on the FAQ tab. There are no frequently asked questions at the moment. Perhaps you'd like to select a different tab?

  • I get 4 research results when searching for [chronology]. Make sure you click on the newest or votes tab to see these. There are no frequent or unanswered results. Commented Sep 17, 2013 at 13:32
  • @AndrewSwann Ah, I see, thanks. Then I should probably change the question to why the tag gets you to the FAQ section rather than a more general one.

The search results have a number of "tabs". In the case of [chronology] you need to click on newest or votes to see 4 hits, frequent and unanswered currently have no hits. By default, the system remembers which tab you looked at last time you did a search, so the first list shown to you has a good chance of being one of the tabs with a small number of matches.
