Specifically not explaining where user-written programs you refer to come from not explaining what "doesn't work" means not using the -cmdname- convention (neither do most people, but it's still a good idea). In fact these points don't really hinge on what is or is not in the FAQ or even whether there is one. Just imagine you wrote a program and someone says to you "I tried your program but it doesn't work". This is essentially no information. Or just imagine that you are the local Stata expert and someone says to you "I have problems with the -foobar- command". Your first question has to be "What is that?" Unclear questions waste everyone's time, including the people who wrote them, because they won't get good answers.
