ATTENTION ADMINISTRATORS: Please ensure that there is always at least one update loaded into the Queue at all times to prevent overdue updates to the main page.

This page gives an overview of all the hooks currently in the queue for promotion to the front page. By showing the content of all the queue and preparation area pages in one place, the overview helps administrators see how full the queue is, and also makes it easier for users to check that their hook has been promoted. Hooks removed from the prep areas or queue for unresolved issues should be listed at Wikipedia:Did you know/Removed.

You may need to purge this page to get it to display the latest edits.

The next update will be produced from queue 5. After doing a manual update, please update the queue count.

Instructions on how to promote a hook

At-a-glance instructions on how to promote an approved hook to a Prep area
Nominations may only be promoted by uninvolved parties who were neither the article creator, nor the nominator or reviewer.


  • Select a hook from the nominations page that has one of these ticks as the bottom post: Symbol confirmed.svg Symbol voting keep.svg.
1) Check to make sure basic review requirements were completed.
a. Any outstanding issue following Symbol confirmed.svg Symbol voting keep.svg needs to be addressed before promoting.
2) Check the article history for any substantive changes since it was nominated or reviewed.
3) Images must be freely licensed. Fair-use images are not permitted. DYK lead hook images are automatically protected on Commons.
4) Hook must be stated in both the article and source (which must be cited at the end of the article sentence where stated).
5) Hook should make sense grammatically.
6) Try to vary subject matters within each prep area.
7) Try to select a funny, quirky or otherwise upbeat hook for the last or bottom hook in the set.
  • Open the Prep area where you intend to add the hook.
1) For hooks held for specific dates, refer to "Local update times" section on DYK Queue.
a. Completed Prep area number sets will be promoted by an administrator to corresponding Queue number.
2) Copy and paste the hook into a chosen slot.
a. The hook should always have a space between "..." and "that", and should end in a "?" question mark.
b. The hook should have a bold link to the article.
3) If it's the lead (first) hook, paste the image where indicated at the top of the template.
4) Copy and paste the credit information (the {{DYKmake}} and {{DYKnom}} templates) at the bottom.
a. The same editor should not get both a DYKmake and a DYKnom for the same article; omit the DYKnom in that case
b. Check the DYKmake entries in Preview mode
1. At the bottom under "Credits" to the right of the article should have the link "View nom subpage" ; it not, a subpage parameter will need to be added to the DYKmake.
5) Save the page.
  • In the DYK nomination template
1) In the upper left hand side, replace the line {{DYKsubpage with {{subst:DYKsubpage
2) In the upper left hand side, replace |passed= with |passed=yes
3) Check in Preview mode - if it was done correctly, everything will be against a pale blue background. There should be no stray characters (like }} ) at the top or bottom, and no text outside the blue background.
4) Edit summary should indicate which Prep area you have promoted the hook to.
5) Save.

For additional information, please see T:TDYK#How to promote an accepted hook
