Wikipedia:Tip of the day/October 11, 2006
Wikipedia has many places to ask questions, such as the:
- Help desk
- New contributors' help page
- Reference desks
- Village Pump (technical) forum
- and the talk page for each and every article in Wikipedia.
Sometimes, a user will post a question and forget all about it. It is easy to forget about these unless you keep a record of the questions you posted to refer back to later. One useful method for doing this is to set aside a section of your user page or talk page, to keep a list of links to your queries. In this list, place section links which lead directly to the subheadings under which you posted your queries.
This method applies equally well for any issue that requires follow-up.
