Talk:Space Shuttle Endeavour launches for final time

Just a note to the reviewer, background information (such as Charles Bolden's spaceflight history) was retrieved from Wikipedia. Tyrol5 (talk) 20:44, 16 May 2011 (UTC)

Wikipedia is not a reliable source; Wikipedia explicitly maintains that Wikipedia is not a reliable source. It is not an acceptable source of background information for a Wikinews article. --Pi zero (talk) 16:23, 17 May 2011 (UTC)

Sources questionEdit

What's the purpose of the Spaceflight Now live update and the STS-134 page on nasa.gov they don't seem to serve any purpose? --Patrick M (TUFKAAP) (talk) 16:04, 17 May 2011 (UTC)

Review of revision 1232533 [Failed]Edit

How would you like me to cite the background info (it's undisputed that Bolden flew in space four times, etc.). And the live updates/nasa.gov page were used for mission information (i.e. payloads, objectives, in-flight events). Thanks, Tyrol5 (talk) 20:11, 17 May 2011 (UTC)

Supposing Wikipedia got the information from somewhere on-line with a trust-worthy reputation, you could use that source. See WN:CITE. --Pi zero (talk) 20:32, 17 May 2011 (UTC)
Thanks. I added a nasa source for the Bolden info. All other background info was retrieved from NASA's shuttle page and mission updates/other articles (the sources do not go unused). Tyrol5 (talk) 10:42, 18 May 2011 (UTC)

Review of revision 1233228 [Passed]Edit

Embedded videoEdit

Just as a FYI, it would be preferable if lower resolution video is used when embedded in news articles.

Unlike stills, video is sent at full resolution and it is left for the viewer's browser to resize it. So, if we're only going to embed a 150px video, we should scale the video and put the lower-res copy on Commons. --Brian McNeil / talk 14:31, 23 May 2011 (UTC)
