  • Hi, I recently created Miangas, island in Indonesia that is famous in international law. I also propose DYK for that. Thanks.*Annas* (talk) 05:38, 6 June 2012 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • I recently created: Populated islands of the Great Lakes. The article lists islands with a population of more than about 100. And I decided to include islands of the great lakes region, and not just ones that are strictly located in one of the Great Lakes. I provided brief descriptions for each island, along with references, and a link to each island's main article. Please let me know if I missed any populated islands on the list.
