When I open your link, I see a page and do not get any idea of what I should or could click on. E.g.:
How to read and save variable(s) from/to a file in MATLAB(/Octave)?
This is only a very general question. I assume an answer will be either too general to be helpful, or to long to be interesting. I'd understand what I should vote for, if the questions are combined with answers.
Of course an insider will know the purpose of this page. But without any explanations or instructions, I cannot identify the use of it and treat it as junk. In consequence I do not consider the commands "Follow it" and "Share This".
I'm in doubt that a proposal page with such a low usability level will result in a proper FAQ page.
I'm convinced that you, Daniel, have a different impression, because you have raised the question. I'm curious to understand if I had overseen or misunderstood something.

Thanks for this explanations, Daniel! I still find Area51 daunting and not open for newcomers. It is obvious that I do not belong to the group of experts they are talking of in the FAQ. Further details would be off-topic here.
