The rules

These are "Did you know..." items related to Peru which appear on Portal:Peru. Rules for inclusion are as follows:

Selection
  • Articles should have a minimum of 1,500 characters of main body text in size, and preferably longer - no stubs.
  • Try to pick articles that are original to Wikipedia (not from the 1911 Encyclopædia Britannica or other data sources) and interesting to a wide audience.
  • The "Did you know?" fact must be mentioned in the article and preferably cited with an inline citation since inline citations are used to support specific statements in an article.
  • When you write the DYK item (or "hook") please make it "hooky", that is, short, punchy, catchy, and likely to draw the readers in to wanting to read the article. Shorter hooks are preferred to longer ones, as long as they don't misstate the article content.
  • The hook should refer to established facts that are not likely to change, and should be relevant for more than just novelty or newness.
Formatting
  • Each DyK entry includes five items.
  • The title of the article must be in bold
  • Entries should start with an ellipsis of three full stops (not the ellipsis character …), and end with a question mark.
  • Use {{*mp}} to get bullet points.
Images
  • The first item in the list must have an associated image.
  • The standard image code is <div style="float:right;margin-left:0.5em;"> [[Image:filename.jpg|100x100px|ALT TAG]]</div>.
  • The first item "hook" should be modified to include (pictured) in the appropriate place to make the connection to the image.
Candidate entries
  • Please sign your nomination.
  • When saving your suggestion, please add the name of the suggested article to your edit summary.
  • Please check back for comments on your nomination. Responding to reasonable objections will help ensure that your article is listed.
  • If you want to confirm that an article is ready to be uploaded, or that there is an issue with the article or hook, you may use the following symbols to point the issues out:
Symbol Code Ready for DYK? Description
Symbol confirmed.svg {{subst:DYKtick}} Yes No problems, ready for DYK
Symbol question.svg {{subst:DYK?}} Query An issue needs to be clarified before the article's eligibility can be determined
Symbol possible vote.svg {{subst:DYK?no}} Maybe Article is currently ineligible but may only need some minor work to fix.
Symbol delete vote.svg {{subst:DYKno}} No Article is either completely ineligible, or else requires considerable work before becoming eligible
