  • Portal:Space - The selected article excerpts were copied and pasted between 2006 and 2009. The leads of the corresponding articles have greatly improved since then.
  • Portal:Thinking - "Selected" sections need new material. Been the same for years.
The following portals have interesting design features that you may find useful:[]
  • Portal:South East England - A "parent" portal that uses selected content from several "child" portals, chosen at random for each type of content.
  • Portal:Philosophy - Automatically cycles through 52 "Selected philosophers", one per week, year after year.
  • Portal:Arts - Uses random generators to display random featured status selections.

Advice for parents

The Wikipedia help page, Advice for parents, is provided to help parents, guardians, teachers, and other adults consider the best way to allow children they are responsible for to engage with Wikipedia safely and enjoyably.

The most useful piece of advice guardians can give to younger ors is to never divulge any personally identifiable information (name, age, location, school) on Wikipedia‍—‌or anywhere else publicly available on the Internet for that matter. Wikipedia is not censored, and contains explicit material and images. Parental controls may be able to help.

You may also be interested in another independent project, the Schools' Wikipedia‍—‌a specific selection of about 5,500 articles from the English Wikipedia, suitable for school children, which has been checked and ed for this audience.
