As described in this Meta Stack Exchange post, individual Stack Exchange communities are able to customize particular elements of the "Ask a public question". The exact things that can be modified are quite particular, so please consider taking a look at the linked Meta.SE post.
We encourage you to open the "Ask a public question" page in an incognito/private window to refresh yourself on what it looks like currently.
Frequent, off-topic questions requesting personal medical advice are a constant frustration to many of our regular users. Although we are unlikely to be able to reach every new user, we can at least try to discourage these types of questions and those that do not show any prior research.

Here is the current state, along with an initial suggestion for improvement.
What we need from you.
- Below are community wiki answers containing the text to be added. We invite you to make edits to improve what is presented.
- Please upvote the answers if you agree that the proposed changes effectively communicate the community consensus.
