Please address issues the tags state. Articles need to be more than a sentence and more than one source to usually be published. DragonFire1024 21:37, 4 January 2007 (UTC)

Wikinews encourages local stories. In this case, there was no copyright infringement. And you can't really expand a wacky ufo news... Towsonu2003 04:14, 5 January 2007 (UTC)

Can we stop these?Edit

Is there any way to get rid of the constant UFO sightings cluttering up the main page lately?

The united Airlines UFO article has been getting a lot of press and I like it but it needs to be longer. It should not have been publised so quick but too late now. DragonFire1024 22:13, 4 January 2007 (UTC)
I think it's virtually impossible to improve this, because there's only one source and it's a local story. We shouldn't ban UFO articles based on their subject, but treat them with equal scrutiny as we would treat other stories. I think this should be published under the exception that it's a local story with low coverage but nonetheless internationally notable and news.--Steven Fruitsmaak (Reply) 22:20, 4 January 2007 (UTC)
The issue of "local stories" with non-English source was raised and resolved in a previous Turkey article. Towsonu2003 04:16, 5 January 2007 (UTC)
