When asking a question at the Help desk
or the Reference desk
, please include all the facts needed to answer the question. Give a link to the page you are asking about, or provide context to your question. For example, do not ask "who was president in 1900?" without mentioning the country you are interested in. This prevents volunteers having to ask follow-up questions before providing answers.
Friendly reminder: the Help desk and Teahouse are for questions on how to use and edit Wikipedia, while the Reference desk is for questions about anything else (real world questions).
