From EyeWiki

This page contains a message that will be sent within every portal's message every month. It must be updated monthly before the portal messages are sent out. To remove this message for a particular month, see the instructions by editing this page. This month's message will be:

EyeWiki is Now on Twitter: Section lead editors have been asked to submit one or more tweets monthly. If you would like to write tweets for EyeWiki contact your section lead editor or eyewiki@aao.org. If you are on Twitter please follow @eyewiki and retweet posts from EyeWiki to support building a social media presence.

Section Statistics
Each section is now being asked to keep a minimum of 60% of their articles up to date. As you know articles on EyeWiki need to be reviewed every 6 months by an EyeWiki editor; after 6 months the article is tagged as "update pending" meaning an editor needs to check to see that the article is still current and that any changes made by the community are appropriate. Section statistics can be found in each of your Portals. As a bonus any section that is over 80% will be featured on Twitter. Please help maintain EyeWiki by keeping your assigned articles up to date.
