Template:About This is where you can submit Did You Know entries. List your submission(s) below, and if the admins decide it's worthwhile, it will be added to the main page template. You can sign your submissions if you want.

Q: Why is DYK now locked?
A: Because when it was freely editable, the admins felt it was too funny and potentially dangerous to your mom.

Q: When will my submission appear?
A: When an admin decides that it's good enough for the front page. A warning: DYK is low priority for most admins. It may not be updated with new submissions frequently, and many entries will be deleted without making it to the main template. Here's how to maximise your chances:

  1. Search the current DYKs and make sure yours isn't a repeat. No, "...that 75.8% of statistics are made up" won't cut it, sorry. You can press Ctrl+F to search some keywords.
  2. Link to good pages in your DYK.
  3. Sequence DYKs (i.e. using two or three or four indented entries for one DYK) are allowed, but don't go overboard.
  4. DO SOMETHING ORIGINAL. PLEASE. FOR THE LOVE OF SOPHIA, BE ORIGINAL.
How about this?
I better stop. I'm getting seasick.
Now I feel better.

Q: What is the template format?
A: All the DYKs are thrown into a random blender using the <choose> tags. That means only one (or a few) DYK will appear on the front page each time you load the page. So no, your DYK will not automagically appear after it's accepted.

Q: What about "Do You Care"?
A: Do You Care entries are mainly for highlighting great past articles.
