Speaking from personal experience, the most frustrating thing that can happen to an article is not deletion, but stagnating below 20 without any comments.

Super Cute Pets!

Meet Lily!


Lily is plaidypus's dog, and she is a very good girl. Why don't you tell us about her, plaid?

Lily likes to stretch out on comfortable things, like blankets and pillows or my spot of the couch so I have to give her attention. However, when she feels like playing, she loves playing this tag-like game where I chase her in circles around the living room or in the yard. She doesn't usually take to dog toys, but loves to gnaw on rawhides and bully sticks.

Do you have a Super Cute Pet?

Send Uncle Nicolini a PM of your pet and a little blurb telling us about them. Just so you know, by doing so you will be releasing that image under CC BY SA 3.0. This isn't a bad thing, so don't worry about it unless you plan on copyrighting said image!


Q: Can I replace a blurb that you wrote for one of my articles with my own? I'm not satisfied with it.

A: Absolutely. You will always have that option at any point.

Q: I noticed an error/typo/incorrect information and wish to correct it. May I?

A: Sure! If the changes are not limited to your own article(s) and/or are substantial changes across multiple entries, you should post in that month's discussion page and then make the changes.

Q: I wrote an article and it seems to have stuck. Can I send a blurb of mine to one of the frequent collaborators?

A: Yup! It's much easier if you come to us about it, and it gives you the control over what you want shown on the news page.
