Right now it looks like FAmSCo candidates are only welcome to answer 3 
of the many questions while Marcus and Larry added answers to more than 
those 3 questions before you started to separate them. So where exactly 
are you making sure questions/answers aren't lost?

Of course, only these 3 questions seem really relevant to FAmSCo 
candidates but I also think answering other questions can show how much 
you care about other parts of the project.
