Suggested edits are a feed to suggest things a user can do to edit the Wikimedia edits in the app. They will show an article and ask the user to add article (title) descriptions or image captions.

About article descriptions

Article descriptions summarize an article to help readers understand the subject at a glance. These are known in the Wikimedia community as Wikidata descriptions.

Tips for creating article descriptions

Article descriptions should ideally fit on one line, and be between two to twelve words long. They are not capitalized unless the first word is a proper noun, and do not normally begin with initial articles (a, an, the). For example:

  • painting by Leonardo da Vinci (title description for an article about the Mona Lisa)
  • Earth’s highest mountain (title description for an article about Mount Everest)

About image captions

Image captions describe an image to help readers understand the meaning and context of an image.

Tips for creating image captions

Image captions should be short descriptions of the visual content of an image, and are generally four to twelve words long. They can also contain information about the artist or creator of the image.
