I CREATED this interesting news article on 500 rescued dolphins. I am Philippines Judge Florentino Floro, having registered with Wikinews on December 3, 2008, and is a Wikinews:Editor as of January 12, 2009.

In having written more than "62 articles" (here - User:Florentino Floro/MyList and in Wikipedia Encyclopedia User:Florentino Floro/MyList2), I live with my Philosophy and hope to elevate Wikinwews to the phenomenal success of Wikipedia encyclopedia, by writing very comprehensive, detailed and fully synthesized news, amid collaboration of editors and the final touch of the reviewer. Please do not be annoyed if sometimes, (due to stress and human factor - plus the fact that as lawyer and judge, I never ever had enrolled in any journalism subject), I would tend to relax the copyright rules and style guide, but, without however, violating the SPIRIT AND INTENT of both international law of copyright, and Wikinews rules on style guide. REST ASSURED, that in writing every news article, I VALUE fairness, justice, integrity and honesty. This is what NEWS WRITING is all about. Please help in publishing this news. Cheers.--Florentino Floro (talk) 11:03, 10 February 2009 (UTC)

dolphins vs whalesEdit

The article seems to contradict itself by first saying they are whales, then saying they are dolphins, then saying they are whales but part of the dolphin family. This is quite confusing. Bawolff 07:00, 15 February 2009 (UTC)

Yes, I agree, even the marine scientists are confusedEdit

Sorry for the late reply, did'nt notice this. On top of the article, I put the naming by the Veterinarian as authoritative = whales. Down, Dr. Aragones said: Whales in the dolphin family, which is correct as our Wikipedia has classified correctly. So, they are really whales in the dolphin family. Journalists are not to be blamed, so here, I put it rightly.

I forgot this beautiful video and the imagesEdit

Span based paramater cannot contain soft newlines..Edit

{{editprotected}} In the quoted commented using {{QuoteRight}}, there is a trailing 'soft' newline for one or more of the parameters. This seemingly breaks the SPAN based formatting used. ShakespeareFan00 (talk) 18:29, 9 September 2020 (UTC)

@ShakespeareFan00: The parameter is explicitly named. Explicitly named parameters are trimmed, so the soft newline should be stripped off. If some software identifies that as a problem (even if it's special lint thing within the wiki platform), that software is broken. --Pi zero (talk) 23:46, 9 September 2020 (UTC)
