Wikipedia:Tip of the day/March 7
Just below the edit box in the Wikipedia text editor is the edit summary field. Please summarize each of your edits! They are displayed in an article's history to make it easier for other editors to know what you did to an article.
Do you keep forgetting to fill-in the edit summary box before saving your edits? To have Wikipedia remember for you, go to your Preferences, select the "Editing" tab, and check the option box, "Prompt me when entering a blank edit summary". With this option set, Wikipedia will remind you to create an edit summary if you forget.
