  • 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.

How to easily recall a username

Trying to recall an editor's username can be challenging. There are various ways to solve this:

  1. If you remember the beginning of the username:
    1. Click on: user-contributions or contributions link either at the top or side of any article page
    2. Type the first couple of letters in the username box: wait 15-seconds and the box will magically appear with usernames starting with that letter combination
    3. If the username is still not there, type in another letter and wait. Usernames are case, punctuation, and space sensitive, so if a username is CamelCased, has punctuation, or has spaces, you will have to try those variations too.
  2. If you have ever conversed with them, you could check the histories of your own talk page and talk page archives. Set your view to (500).
  3. In your contributions, you could limit the namespace to user talk, and that would give you the names of all the users you have posted to on their talk pages. The same with the talk namespace (via your contributions).
  4. You could also search the talk namespace for your own signature, to locate the threads where others may have replied to you
  5. Where do they hang out? What are they renowned for? If you can remember where they have posted messages, then you can find their username.
  6. Users Search box for users by name or official capacity
