The Tip of the Day project provides a different piece of advice for using Wikipedia every day. Like the Picture of the Day, you can include it on your userpage by adding {{totd}} somewhere (at the top of your talk page is a good place for it). The randomized version (displayed above) is {{totd-random}}, and shows a different tip each time it is displayed on your screen. Other formats for the TOTD exist, such as the more compact {{totd3}}, or you can make your own by including {{Wikipedia:Tip of the day/{{CURRENTMONTHNAME}} {{CURRENTDAY}}, {{CURRENTYEAR}}}} on your userpage (which includes the raw text, without any formatting) and then enclose it in your own formatting. To float the tip of the day to the right of content (as it is displayed here), place this code where you want the tip to show up: {{right|{{totd3}}}}.

Mottos/slogans/quotes/thoughtboxes[edit]

Mottos[edit]

There's a motto of the day project, called, you guessed it: Wikipedia:Motto of the day. To use it, just place {{Motd}} on your user page!

Here's what it looks like:

Today's motto...
I am very sorry, good Horatio,
That to Laertes I forgot myself,
[…]
But, sure, the bravery of his grief did put me
Into a towering passion.


Nominate one today!

Thoughtboxes[edit]

This positive thoughtbox was found on Lord Voldemort's userpage:

What happens when a Wikipedian dies? He or she just doesn't show up to edit anymore. Does anybody notice? Does anybody really even care? To all those Wikipedians who may have died and been forgotten here, Thank you for your contributions and Rest in Peace.

Pics and images[edit]

There is a huge selection of pictures on Wikipedia and its sister site Wikimedia Commons. Pictures can be a powerful way to express yourself...

Terrorists don't have the Bomb... Yet.
Mountains in New Hampshire.

Pictures can be found all over Wikipedia, but it can be very time-consuming to hunt for them in the encyclopedia's articles. Another option is to browse Wikipedia's collections...

Image categories[edit]

Some images can be found in the categorical index, at:

But most of the images used on Wikipedia are kept at:

Featured pictures[edit]

Featured pictures can also be found in the picture of the day archive:

A monthly archive of Wikipedia's featured pictures

2004: May - June - July - August - September - October - November - December
2005: January - February - March - April - May - June - July - August - September - October - November - December

2006: January - February - March - April - May - June - July - August - September - October - November - December

2007: January - February - March - April - May - June - July - August - September - October - November - December

There is usually a long delay before a featured picture is scheduled into the picture of the day system, so two other places to look for featured pictures are:

Picture(s) of the day[edit]

The Picture of the Day is currently displayed every day on the Main Page, and you can use it to decorate your userpage as well...

Here's what the various picture of the day templates look like. To place them on your user page, include the corresponding double-curly bracket code, and the picture will be displayed automagically:

{{pic of the day}}

Picture of the day
Ceiling of Sheikh Lotfollah Mosque

The domed ceiling of Sheikh Lotfollah Mosque, a 17th-century mosque located on the eastern side of Naqsh-e Jahan Square in Isfahan, Iran. The eight-fold symmetry of the dome's interior is created by rings of ornamental bands filled with arabesque patterns that become smaller and smaller towards the top. Such use of symmetry is common in Islamic architecture, which tends to emphasize aniconism through its use of geometric patterns and calligraphy.

If you'd rather have it without the text (to make it smaller), you can use {{Wikipedia:POTD/{{CURRENTMONTHNAME}}_{{CURRENTDAY}},_{{CURRENTYEAR}} instead.

Alternate picture of the day[edit]

To display the alternate picture of the day from the no-restrictions anybody-can-add-a-pic-right-now picture project, use {{rpotd}}, which displays this:



Unlike PotD, these pictures are not featured. You can use {{rpotd}} to add the daily random picture to your userpage.

Commons picture of the day[edit]

You can also display the Commons Picture of the Day, which is different from the featured picture displayed on the main page, with {{WP:Wikimedia Commons/POTD}}. Which shows this:
