Maybe I'm just overlooking it, but I cannot find guidelines for this specific site anywhere. All the links (e.g., What kind of questions should I ask on Puzzling?) go to the generic Stack Exchange template.

Is there a list of

  • what makes a bad/good puzzle?
  • what kinds of puzzles are specifically banned?
  • Puzzling.SE specific guidelines/rules?
  • specific formatting tips for Puzzling (such as the spoiler markup)?

I know this must be around; I've looked hard but can't find it!

    $\begingroup$ I think this information is supposed to go on the help center page, which is currently generic. There was some discussion in this meta post, but I don't think anything concrete came of it. Probably it's time to try again. $\endgroup$ Oct 23, 2015 at 16:17

    $\begingroup$ More recently (though still about a year ago), I asked this question, which received no responses. Maybe we should reopen that discussion? $\endgroup$
