SuggestBot is a fun way to pick pages to edit

Let SuggestBot point the way. SuggestBot is a program that attempts to help Wikipedia users find pages to edit. It matches people with pages they might like to contribute to based on their past contributions. It uses a variety of algorithms, including standard information retrieval and collaborative filtering techniques, to make suggestions. It also sometimes points people to the Community Portal, or their past edits, as a source of inspiration.

If you are looking for SuggestBot recommendations, you have these options.

  1. To get a single set of suggestions:
    1. …based on articles you've edited, please follow the instructions at User:SuggestBot/Requests.
    2. …using WikiProjects you are interested in, go to the Teahouse's SuggestBot page, click on Get suggestions, and follow the instructions.
    3. …based on a specific set of articles or categories of articles, see our SuggestBot instructions for that.
  2. You can also get suggestions posted periodically to your talk page (or another page of your choosing). How to do that is described here.
