General notices

  • Seeking testers to put new search results enhancements through the paces. Your feedback is needed to make the Wikipedia search experience even better.
  • For the 6 months up to 14 March 2018, as part of the autoconfirmed article creation trial (ACTRIAL), autoconfirmed status was required in order to create new articles. A community discussion is taking place here to decide whether that restriction should be re-introduced on a permanent basis.
  • Do you have need for a specialized script that doesn't exist yet, or have an idea for a cool new script or gadget? Post requests and ideas at Wikipedia:User scripts/Requests.
  • Free subscriptions to high-quality paywalled journals, newspaper archives, and online reference works are available for Wikipedia editors. For more information, see Wikipedia:The Wikipedia Library/Databases

WikiProjects and Task Forces

  • 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!

  • 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.
