Tip of the day...
Posting on the Wikipedia Community Bulletin Board
Community bulletin board (aka WP:CBB) is a terrific way to let your newly created Portal, WikiProject, etc., be known to the community, including at the Community Portal. It's also a great way to recruit fellow editors. If you post a notice there, please follow these guidelines:
Use present tense.
Bold the main link. Keep it short and sweet, news style.
Use pulldates (one week) by inserting them into a hidden comment like this: <!-- Pulldate: July 3 -->
Or just follow the instructions on the page, which will be visible when you edit it.
You can also submit WikiProject and similar news to the relevant section of the
