There's a new "about" page available here: http://skeptics.stackexchange.com/about

The top bit is editable by moderators. It currently says:

Skeptics is a question and answer site for applying scientific skepticism. It's built and run by you as part of the Stack Exchange network of Q&A sites. With your help, we're working together to build a library of detailed answers challenging unreferenced notable claims, pseudoscience and biased results.

What should we write in there?

I would like to take a stab at this. First, to the original formulation.

Skeptics is a question and answer site for applying scientific skepticism. It's built and run by you as part of the Stack Exchange network of Q&A sites. With your help, we're working together to build a library of detailed answers challenging unreferenced notable claims, pseudoscience and biased results.

Respectfully, some objections: skeptics "apply scientific skepticism" is awkward. The site is not technically built by the users. Build and q&a are repeated twice in two sentences.

With this in mind, I suggest the following rewrite:

Skeptics is an open forum dedicated to challenging notable unsupported claims, debunking pseudoscience, and exposing biased findings. Written and moderated by the community, we are a part of the Stack Exchange network of Q&A sites.
