What happened to the times that were on the article? --Iain 21:37, 2 August 2005 (UTC)


Harmful "article control" exemplified hereEdit

The worst part is that for over an additional hour, anyone with friends or relatives on this flight were welcomed with a scary headline unnecessarily because of article-control freakish behaviour.

SourcingEdit

We really have been a bit rubbish at keeping this article sourced - for example, this morning it has the 43 injured figure but no source for this - this is BAD! Dan100 (Talk) 07:48, 3 August 2005 (UTC)

I think some of the reporting you describe as "rubbish" comes from televised broadcast reports. I am not sure if there is any policy regarding this, and I understand that it allows for the creeping in of unsubstantiated reporting. However, broadcast reports are faster breaking than print, and are I believe they are useful for a fast moving story such as this was at its inception. In time, as you have done Dan100, print sources can replace broadcast sources. -Edbrown05 14:52, 3 August 2005 (UTC)
  • Dan, Under the edit summary of "Update: numbers confirmed" I made this edit which includes the source. I do not think I was BAD or a bit rubbish at keeping sources. DoubleBlue (Talk) 18:41, 3 August 2005 (UTC)

Injury estimatesEdit

Here's a source for the 43 injuries. Should this be revised in the article?

I put the above FOX report in the 'Sources' section of the story. -Edbrown05 15:04, 3 August 2005 (UTC)
