Tools I recommend[edit]

Chrome extensions and websites[edit]


  • Watchlist → Expand watchlist to show all changes, not just the most recent
  • Recent changes → Group changes by page in recent changes and watchlist
  • Gadgets → Navigation popups
  • Gadgets → Twinkle
  • Gadgets → Hotcat

Tools I can barely recommend[edit]

  • WP:Visual Editor (mostly for copy-editing, everything else I'd suggest just sticking to the normal editor)

Articles created or expanded[edit]

My advice[edit]

  • WP:NOTABILITY is not about being fair, while WP:NPOV is.
  • Consistent compliance with Wikipedia policy is more important than your personal beliefs. Inconsistent compliance is a good sign of activist editing.
  • When you join a wiki community, be a constructive editor.
Where to write about current events

The current events portal is used to describe current world-wide events of note, not just in politics, but also in science, culture, technology, sports, entertainment and many other areas. The information in question should be added to any relevant articles as well. However, Wikipedia does not offer first-hand news reports on breaking stories (use Wikinews for that). Instead, the in the news section on our Main Page mentions and links to entries of timely interest that are (and this is crucial) nonetheless encyclopedia articles that have been updated to reflect an important current event. Non-Administrators can suggest items or changes to this Main Page section by editing the candidates page, from which administrators will update the live template from time to time.

To add this auto-updating template to your user page, use {{totd}}
