Help us improve the Wikipedia Education Program
Hi Che02011! As a student editor on Wikipedia, you have a lot of valuable experience about what it's like to edit as a part of a classroom assignment. In order to help other students like you enjoy editing while contributing positively to Wikipedia, it's extremely helpful to hear from real student editors about their challenges, successes, and support needs. Please take a few minutes to answer these questions by clicking below. (Note that the responses are posted to a public wiki page.) Thanks!

Did you know...
Hi Che02011. I moved your article Embedded democracy into the "mainspace".
There is a cool process on wikipedia called "Did You Know?" (DYK for short) where community members can place new articles on wikipedia's front page for a period of time (usually driving between 1-3 thousand readers to the page). The basic steps are outlined here, but the short version is you have to come up with a quick hook (less than 200 characters, normally the length of a tweet) illustrating a salient or interesting fact about the subject. That hook, along with a link to the article will be placed on the main page if the submission is approved.
There is something of a deadline on this, as articles are only eligible for 7 days after their creation. That means you've got 5 days to do this if you'd like to. It's (of course) 100% optional but you and your colleagues have done such a good job on this article it would be cool to show it to new readers! Please let me know if you have any questions or you need any help putting together the nomination (including figuring out the formatting). Adam (Wiki Ed) (talk) 21:27, 4 December 2014 (UTC)
