Much of the information in this article is from an as-yet-unpublished announcement from Sue Gardner, as well as IRC conversation with Cary Bass for the date the offices will be open, and internet research which led me to Mr Walsh's LinkedIn resumé. - Amgine | sw 00:32, 8 January 2008 (UTC)Reply

I feel very uncomfortable. You cited in the article from "internal-l", not published source. You broke the trust or had someone do so. Very disappointed. --Aphaia 00:42, 9 January 2008 (UTC)Reply

I am very sorry you are uncomfortable. The information in the article was primarily written prior to any announcement on any internal list. Sources confirmed the information after an announcement was made, but that was confirmation and not original documentation. - Amgine | sw 00:48, 9 January 2008 (UTC) —Preceding unsigned comment added by Amgine (talkcontribs) Reply
You seem to miss my point. And your reply doesn't make a sense to me. You wrote very in your first revision "Sandy Ordonez announces on internal-l" and this list is confidential. Without breaching its confidentiality it cannot be quoted. If you are a member you broke our trust. If you have your deep throat on the list, you had your friend not to do. I am very disappointed. --Aphaia 21:42, 9 January 2008 (UTC)Reply

Newsworthy

edit

Is this really newsworthy? I have not found anything about this on any other site? Would this be covered if this wasn't a Wikimedia site? I am not saying it is not newsworthy, I am just saying it is something to consider. --User:Anonymous101 Talk 18:36, 8 January 2008 (UTC)Reply

Yes and no. Wikimedia is the 7th most accessed family of sites worldwide, and since the site only has about a dozen employees, this technically is a major turnover. Like if Google replaced 700 people all at once. Also, people reading Wikinews likely have a pre-disposition to the "free content" movement, so it's more interesting to them.
On that note, it would be good if we started covering the six website families above us. But alas, that's the hazard we risk with everybody writing on what interests them, unbalanced coverage. -- Zanimum 15:03, 9 January 2008 (UTC)Reply
