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.

My article "GowithOh" got rejected last night and I would need some help to fix it, because Itried to write it in the most helpful and uncommercial way. Is it about the sources? What would you change/add?

Thanks so much for your help and time!

What if i type Edit summary wrong?
Today, by mistake: instead of writing updated alexa I wrote Ted Leonsis, Chairman.
I was updating Alexa ranks. so i copied edit summary "updated alexa" and was pasting it in the summary box. But at the same time I moved Ted Leonsis in another field and thus copied that text and later pasted it in summary and hit saved.
I know it is wrong. But how much wrong?

I know it looks like I have made the same mistake again but there is a page entitled QualPro on Wikipedia which isn't working through the redirect QualPro, Inc., the title of which is another way of referring to the same company.

Hello, sorry for this probably simple question, however I really don't know how to change the article name of my first article. I tried to follow the beginners introduction (which seem very beginner unfriendly to me) and typed the aricle's name "user: username: short article name", however, now it made excactly this whole line the name of my article. I am very

disappointed, I did never think that writing a Wikipedia article can be that complicated....
