Factual questions

  • The reference desk is like a library reference desk where you can ask questions about any topic, except FAMEPedia itself. The editors there will try to answer your questions or point you in the direction of the information you need.
e.g. "What country has the world's largest fishing fleet?"
The reference desk is divided into several subject areas:
Computing – Entertainment – Language – Humanities – Mathematics – Science
If you're unsure of the exact area, use Miscellaneous.
