Ask... but what?

I really like this big “Ask a question” button on top right of every page, that encourage you to ask for something. But it is unclear what you ca ask for here. The About the Ask here category is not displayed on the right, where you can find a lot of useful information.

Have some magic to display some guidance about what the different sub-Spaces are for would really help! :)

Good point, @Trizek_WMF. Some instruction would be helpful! I’ve added a default text to the Ask here category, so whenever anyone clicks on “Ask a question”, they will see this in the textbox:

Go ahead, ask anything Wikimedia! Space contributors will do our best to answer your questions or direct you to the right place.

If you’d instead like to open a conversation pertaining to a particular theme, scroll through the drop-down menu in the upper left to view the conversation categories and select what fits best.

Delete this text and get to talking!

Perhaps something like this for now?

In the coming weeks, we’re likely going to be exploring category-specific banners, which would display text similar to this at the top of the screen when in the Ask here category.
