It is generally the responsibility of the author to provide enough information to get their question answered. The best tools you have to educate new users is asking good questions yourself. Users will generally imitate what they see, so be sure your questions are always complete and include information like your location… and edit any questions that can be made better and more clear.
I could see some element of the FAQ surfaced on the asking-question page. It's not a bad suggestion. But we've got to be a bit careful about adding too much "read this first..." clutter to the site. Long story short, it's mostly ignored by the folks who need it most — those that didn't read the site to see how it works in the first place.
So you're best tools are comments to ask for clarification where needed, and rigorous moderation to improve the content where you can.
