https://codegolf.stackexchange.com/about doesn't describe what the site is about.

It should have a link and a short quote  from https://codegolf.stackexchange.com/faq

Code golf is a special type of programming puzzle where the shortest correct code submission wins.

All questions on this site, whether a programming puzzle or a code golf, should have …

An objective primary winning criterion, so that it is possible to indisputably decide which entry should win.

A clear specification of what constitutes a correct submission. Test cases are highly encouraged.

"Tips for golfing in some language"

These questions are surprisingly hard to write well. Help may be available on the Puzzle Lab chat or the meta Sandbox, and the use of these resources is encouraged.

Also the header of the section "We're a little bit different from other sites" is confusing. It is about how StackExchange sites are different from other sites, but doesn't described how "Programming Puzzles & Code Golf site" is different to other Stack Exchange sites.

It turns out that we don't have fine grained control of the formatting of that page.

For instance the "We're a little bit different from other sites" bit is not available for editing.

I largely agree that the text above there could use some help but I'm not clear what ti should be. Whatever it is, it will appear centered and I can't do bullet lists.
