Monthly or continuous events

  • Monthly contest, WikiProject Military history. The contest department of the Military history WikiProject aims to motivate increased quality in military history articles by offering a form of friendly competition for project members making improvements to them. The primary contest available is a simple rolling competition that awards points for improving articles. The contest runs from the first to last day of each month.
  • Guild of Copy Editors' editing blitz. The April 2024 editing blitz was a one-week-long effort by the Guild of Copy Editors to reduce its backlog. The themes were: all articles on the GOCE Requests page, and articles on the January 2023 and February 2023 backlog. It began on 14 April, 00:00 (UTC), and ended on 20 April, 23:59 (UTC). Stay tuned for the next event.
  • Wiki: WikiProject Women in Red 2023 Events: WP:WIR/EVENTS - updated monthly
  • The 100,000 Challenge. The quest to bring about 100,000 article improvements and creations globally through a series of 50,000/10,000/1000 Challenges for different regions and countries. This is a loose challenge, a list will not be maintained here, but the components will function independently on each of the subpages. Will be updated every week or two.
    • The 50,000 Destubbing Challenge is a long term challenge to destub 50,000 articles on English Wikipedia for every country and topic. It may take decades to accomplish, it may take ten years, it all depends on how many people actively contribute.

Tip of the day

community Portal
How to move/rename a page

You can usually move a page to a new title by clicking on the move tab at the top of the page. This preserves the edit history by transferring the edit history along with the page move. The talk page, will be moved as well, if you check the box requesting that.

When a page is moved, a redirect is automatically created at the old location. Please fix any double redirects that result. Use the "what links here" link in the left hand column of any page to find the double redirects so you can edit them and point them to the new page name.

Moving a page in this way is not possible in some cases, such as when a page other than a fresh redirect exists at the destination, or when the page is move protected, but you can ask for help at Wikipedia:Requested moves.

Please do not "cut and paste" to move the text to its new location, because this leaves the page history behind. Thank you.
