Sometimes it's difficult to choose the right topic, or FAQ, but finding the right one is important, so that those who can give a good answer can find it quickly. The mechanism is quite simple. After you confirm the phrasing of the question, you'll be given a chance to select the FAQ/topic of the question. Clicking on the main FAQ will show a list of subtopics, some of which may have subtopics of their own. Click the radio button next to the topic that most applies to the question. Later you'll have the chance to add other FAQs (up to 3) to the question. Sometimes finding the right one takes a while. If all else fails, you can just dump it into the Miscellaneous category and let a Supervisor find the right FAQ(s). As a Supervisor, though, I can say we appreciate askers making their best guess up front. :)

Select committees are opened for temporary discussions on a certain topic in legislature.

There is no difference between moving a question to another topic and editing its FAQs. Every question appears in at least one FAQ (i.e. topic section). For example, this question is in the "Questions about WikiAnswers Website" category. This appears in the location bar at the top as "Location: > WikiAnswers > Categories > Miscellaneous > Questions about WikiAnswers Website > What is the difference between moving a question to a different topic and editing its FAQs?". If you click the "recategorize" link (if you're not signed in you won't see this) you can move the question to a different topic/FAQ or classify it under more than one such topic. The "recategorize" form has checkboxes to select the appropriate topic(s). It is somewhat confusing that the topic for a question also appears under "Related Categories" in the left-hand column. This is a backwards way of saying the question is located in the "Questions about WikiAnswers Website" FAQ.

In your mind, change the topic sentence into a question. If the information can be used as an answer to that question, then it is good supporting information. Any information which does not directly answer the topic "question" can be eliminated.

If you have a question that is very long try to summarize it down when you type it in the "Ask us Anything" bar. Once the question is posted look on your left sidebar and select "Discuss". You can then elaborate on your question in that discussion box.

Yes many good topic sentences are in fact questions yes

You fully support a topic by giving details that explain, describe, or define it.List facts that prove the topic. Explain what the topic means to you.
