  • The Tip of The Day department needs editors to monitor the tips before they "go live". To do this, place {{Totd-tomorrow}} on your user page or user talk page. That will show the tip a day early. When you find an inaccuracy or other problem, you can fix it yourself, or report it at the Tip of the day talk page. Thank you!

Attention needed
  • Portal:Space - The selected article excerpts were copied and pasted between 2006 and 2009. The leads of the corresponding articles have greatly improved since then.
  • Portal:Thinking - "Selected" sections need new material. Been the same for years.
The following portals have interesting design features that you may find useful:
  • Portal:South East England - A "parent" portal that uses selected content from several "child" portals, chosen at random for each type of content.
  • Portal:Philosophy - Automatically cycles through 52 "Selected philosophers", one per week, year after year.
  • Portal:Arts - Uses random generators to display random featured status selections.

User Subpages

Many users like to create user subpages to store various bits of information such as welcome templates or other information. For example, if you are drafting a new page that is not ready to "go live", or proposing major changes in redrafting an existing page, a user subpage may be very useful.

To create a subpage simply visit your User page and then append the name of the subpage in your browser's URL bar. For example, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/index.php?User:CoolDude would become http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/index.php?User:CoolDude/MySubpageName. When you press the ↵ Enter key you will be prompted to create the new subpage.

If you no longer need a subpage, or wish to have it deleted, you can mark the page with {{db-owner}} or {{db|reason}}.
