Wikipedia: Did you know that ...
Knops are compiled for this page, which are supposed to appear on the front page. The selection of four knobs currently on the front page is highlighted below. Knops and links to the archives that were already on the front page can be found lower on this page, in the section Old Additions. You can also search for old Knops using the search function below.
Edit the homepage selection
Add new knop suggestions at the end of this section so you can discuss them, if necessary, before they appear. Try to avoid red links. New information is usually transferred to the homepage selection on Fridays. This is done by editing the template Template: Did you know that .... It can also be edited directly from the link above. There are four knobs in the selection at a time. These should be related to different types of topics. You can deviate from the chronology if a beak is topical and would lose its interest if it came up too late. However, this needs to be discussed first.
The “Search for nipple information in the archive” search allows you to check if a topic has already existed, or else just search for a specific topic.
Note! When making additions, check that the same information is in the article itself. Also check that the source of the information is given in the article.
