DYK suggestions

If you had created any new articles that have an interesting or unusual fact in them, consider suggesting them for the "Did you know?" box on the Wikipedia main page. Only nominations made within seven days from the creation or fivefold expansion of the article will be considered for DYK. Therefore, if you are creating a new article or working on a major expansion of an existing one and think you will take more than seven days to finish, consider doing so in a personal sandbox first and moving the article into the main namespace when you are done. You can make personal sandboxes by creating pages called "User:USERNAME/sandbox", "User:USERNAME/sandbox1", and so on, where "USERNAME" is your user name. Once complete, the sandbox can then be moved to mainspace either by yourself, or if the target page already exists, by a page mover or administrator.

Also consider adding such articles to the Singapore Portal.

Recently created articles

Recently created articles that may be within the scope of the project are automatically picked up by a bot as listed in the 'See also' link above. Do help to improve relevant articles, and make nominations for the "Did you know?" section on Wikipedia's main page.

SGpedian administrators

No, some Wikipedians are not more equal than others. Friendly SGpedian administrators with mops and buckets are at your service to render assistance for any issue you may have from time to time. Feel free to drop a note on any of their talk pages if you need their attention.

Article improvement

This part of the notice board facilitates collaboration between SGpedians to improve Singapore-related articles. There are many issues that may be common knowledge in Singapore, but are not well known outside Singapore and thus not mentioned in Wikipedia. SGpedians are encouraged to work alone or together to identify such issues, and to create and improve articles on them to counter systemic bias.

For information on and to take part in general collaboration projects, see the following:

Combat vandalism! To combat vandalism to Singapore-related articles, check for suspicious changes at "Special:Recentchangeslinked/Index of Singapore-related articles", and revert undesirable edits.
