About The Signpost

The Signpost is a community-written and -edited online newspaper covering the English Wikipedia, its sister projects, the Wikimedia Foundation, and the Wikimedia movement at large, currently published twice a month. Since its launch in 2005, there have been 681 Signpost issues published, comprising 5424 articles, and 12837 pages total (4271 talk and 8566 non-talk).

The Signpost is produced by volunteers, and is independent of the Wikimedia Foundation and other Wikimedia organizations. The original name of the newspaper was The Wikipedia Signpost; it was shortened to the The Signpost in August 2010 as a symbol of an expansion in scope beyond the English Wikipedia. Our statement of purpose guides our efforts. Editorial decisions are made by the editorial board, composed of Wikimedia volunteers, and ultimately by the Editor in Chief.

Unlike most Wikipedia pages, each Signpost article carries a byline to indicate its author, and is edited by at least one other team member. We welcome post-publication edits such as grammatical and spelling corrections to articles, subject to review by the Signpost team; we value our readers' efforts to correct simple mistakes and provide needed clarifications. Anyone may submit articles; suggestions and news tips are welcomed on our suggestions page. Aspiring contributors may wish to consult our Quick start page and our newsroom.

Our readers have several options for subscription or notification of new issues, outlined on our subscription page.
