This page lists all the "Did you know" fact sets that will randomly display on the main page of Portal:Virginia

Guidelines

As a general goal, where possible each set of DYK selections should have a variety of hooks: they set should be from various locations (e.g. Central & Eartern Virginia, Northern Virginia, Western Virginia), various types (e.g. biography, location, historic site) and even time period (e.g. colonial vs. 20th-21st century): in sum, the whole swath of the Virginia experience.

As these DYK will be displayed for a long period of time (rather than the several hours that a normal DYK is), the chosen DYK entries should be enduring (esp. important for facts) as well as interesting; in sum, a curated selection for quality, rather than quantity (A manually-assembled list of unused DYK entries from Virginia may be found at Portal:Virginia/Did you know/Candidates).
