Hello everyone! I'm back again with another newsletter for the wiki and excitingly, quite a lot of activity has been going on recently. This newsletter, the WWII fact for the day can be found in the image caption and that may just be the way that all newsletters in the future will be done. Anyway, among the big news on the wiki is our new Twitter account! I've already gone ahead and started posting the latest updates on the wiki there so be sure to check it out! I'll post the link below. Among other things, I've also gone ahead and started renovating the wiki home page in an attempt to make it more SEO friendly. Time will only tell if it makes any difference, but I do hope that it has the chance to increase the amount of traffic the wiki gets. 

For those who like to go through the wiki image archive, I've also just about finished up upgrading all the wiki image licensing templates such as Public Domain, Attributed, Fair Use, and CC-BY-SA 2.0 and 3.0. Hopefully this will clear up as much confusion as possible for people looking for images on the wiki. I've also gone and added image summaries to many different images to make sure that their source is never forgotton or lost. If anything else comes up I'll be sure to add it here on the newsletter.
