The "most wanted links" subcat here does not actually refer to the "most wanted" page of fanlore or the concept. --Sabine 02:59, 12 November 2008 (UTC)

This looks like a place where a note about the four-hour delay for making new pages due to spam should be mentioned? --Mrs. Potato Head 00:11, 12 September 2012 (UTC)
Good idea! Espresso Addict 00:13, 12 September 2012 (UTC)
Your wording looks good. I've added something similar to Help:Tutorial, as that's where the main page sends new users. Espresso Addict 00:31, 12 September 2012 (UTC)
Thanks, MPH and Espresso Addict!--æþel 01:04, 12 September 2012 (UTC)

So we now have "please make a small edit on an existing page (adding a missing comma, correcting a typo, ect.)". With a delicious little typo right there to encourage the newbie to start editing? On a locked page? --Greer Watson (talk) 18:04, 25 March 2013 (UTC)

Aside from the typo, which I fixed, is there a problem with this wording or request? If so, we need some discussion on the subject. --Mrs. Potato Head (talk) 18:33, 25 March 2013 (UTC)
Actually, it seems like a very sensible request. Apart from the usefulness in proving their reality, it also suggests that they get stuck right in—which breaks the ice, so to speak. One can read and read, and never edit; but we need editors. (And typos need correcting!) --Greer Watson (talk) 01:06, 26 March 2013 (UTC)
Yes, yes, yes, and on that last one, YES - (speaking as someone who's contributed my share of typos; I feel bad every time I find one....) --Mrs. Potato Head (talk) 01:12, 26 March 2013 (UTC)

Proposed edit: Fanlore:Portal (new draft). Thoughts? --PriscillaD (talk) 15:31, 18 December 2016 (UTC)
