Well, you're supposed to put "members" after "crew". Overall, the article was okay, but the news you reported wasn't so thrilling.

This is a wiki; we publish articles that are submitted and pass review. If you'd like to see different articles, read WN:Pillars of Wikinews writing, then WN:Writing an article, and for good measure WN:Style guide, and try your hand at submitting an article.

"members" after "crew" is what Language Log calls a "zombie rule". However, because this is a wiki, you have the ability to submit an edit to the article (since it's not yet in the fully protected archives).

Sorry, I am new to wiki news. I thought I was commenting.

Certainly. Comments welcome. I also was just commenting. Truly, you're welcome to read up on how the project works, and take a stab at contributing.

Oh. Okay, I'm an idiot. You have submitted an article. Now I see. Yes, this is the comments page, it's usually used for comments on the story covered by the article. For comments like grammatical criticisms, you want the collaboration page.

I'd wanted, but didn't make the time, to write about the Turkish Airlines accident in Nepal. So soon after, I see we are following the trend of writing about the Western accident and ignoring the Asian one.

In fairness, we often write about what is local to us; and wikis are still largely the hangout of nerdy white men. So it's not unreasonable that a US crash is more likely to grab authors than a Nepalese one.
