Here's how it works:
  1. Anybody can ask a question
  2. Anybody can answer
  3. The best answers are voted up and rise to the top

Simple question really: on your site maps, do you always place the homepage (if existant) as the top single level of a site map, or do you treat it as a sibling on the other main level pages?

However, it makes the most sense to start with it since most if not all your users will.
