Usage[edit]

This page displays the rotating list of questions that appear in the recent questions box on WP:Teahouse. Hostbot swaps in new questions are swapped in every day at 4:00 UTC. You can change the question that is displayed by clicking the '...see another question' link below the featured questions box.

To add a new question manually:

  1. navigate to the page the question is on by clicking one of the links below
  2. overwrite the existing question with the wikitext of the new question you want to add (don't include the section heading, just the question text)
  3. fill in the 'section' parameter of the question-answer template with the link to the new question

Note: If you just want to quickly replace an incorrectly formatted or inappropriate question: just copy/paste the full text of one of the other recent questions subpages over the one you want to delete.

Not sure about how to add the logo. Also is this on the right track. Your inputs would be highly appreciated.

Many articles related to grammar use boldface and underlining to identify parts of sample sentences. Are there any ongoing or past discussions about guidelines for doing this consistently and more in line with MOS:BOLD?

The article I am working on is starting to look frightful with all the boldface I added. I wonder if there is a better approach. Whikie (talk) 20:20, 26 July 2014 (UTC)

Every now and then I see an obvious grammatical error. I am proud to be a part of Wikipedia. Is it proper to edit content for grammar?25thfret (talk) 00:55, 28 July 2014 (UTC)

Hi, pretty new to wikipedia editing. I made my first article years ago and went back to look at it a few weeks ago and was glad to find someone had tagged it for improvement. But what do I do to help make it better? What else can I do to improve that article and others and help out with wikipedia? Is there some sort of mentoring program or a novice wikipedian workshop or something? Here is my, admittedly awful, article https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Judith_Chomsky
