===Willipedia News===
We're trying to categorize the major articles to make Willipedia easier to browse. To add an article to a category, just add '''<nowiki>[[</nowiki>Category: ''category-name'']]''' to the top of the article, and it will show up in the appropriate index.
'''The wiki belongs to you.''' Feel free to use it to post information about some aspect of [[Williams College]], or at least information that some Williams students will probably find useful. To make any edits, you'll need to log in with your OIT or WSO account.  If you are in an especially helpful mood, consider starting one of the [[Special:Wantedpages|most wanted articles]].
'''Writers:''' Willipedia now has a few pages that may help you start or edit articles.  You can now learn basic stuff [[Project:About|about Willipedia]] and browse its current [[Project:Policies|standards and policies]]. Still have a question? Add it to our [[Project:FAQ|FAQ]].
Below are non-trivial pages of interest. You can add to this list, or in fact edit any page on the wiki, by clicking "Edit this page" (at the bottom).
