Did you know?


Getting a new article onto Wikipedia's main page is pretty simple. First, find an encyclopedic topic that Wikipedia doesn't already cover and start an article. Expand it to more than 1500 characters and include at least one reference. Before the new article is five days old, write a catchy summary and submit it to Template talk:Did you know. An image helps, but use only images that are GDFL copyright or public domain. A simple image that looks good at 100px is best. Or if you find a short stub and expand it to 5x its original size you can also earn DYK recognition for the page. After User:Ghirlandajo and User:Alex Bakharev helped me with Nadezhda Durova I wrote some more and started helping other people earn their own DYKs.
