Monthly updates[edit]

These are usually done by the admins, and published roughly on the 14th of every month. Here's how to publish one:

  1. Draft up the update a day or so early as Wikis World/YYYY-MM.
  2. Send a link to the draft to the moderator chat, asking for comments. Improve the draft if necessary.
  3. Once it's time to publish, add a link to the report to the list on the main Wikis World page.
  4. Toot about the update using the @announcements account.
