@Zizzu412:. Thank you for creating this article, and submitting for review. Could you wiki-link some keywords so that it is easier for reviewers to review it? Cheers.

@Acagastya: I'm pretty new to Wikinews. Do I link to Wikipedia or ... Zizzu412 (talk) 20:36, 21 June 2020 (UTC)[]
@Zizzu412: You can use {{w}} template for linking. If there is a local link, it will link locally. Else it will link to Wikipedia. For example, {{w|Page title|text to display}}.

During a partial-review session just now, I added wikilinks using 1056 UTC; demonstrates how it's done. :-)  --Pi zero (talk) 16:09, 22 June 2020 (UTC)[]

similarities to sourceEdit

During the partial-review session, I noticed several passages too-close-to-source (most of them just long enough to notice at all). This is something we pay careful attention to on Wikinews. There's rather more of it than I'd hope for in such a short article; I'm hoping I can cope with it within my purview as reviewer, though likely to cope I'll have to do more than I can afford to do on a regular basis — the hope is, of course, as you get used to Wikinews writing such things mostly won't happen in your newscopy. (We've long had on our wishlist to better document how to do this; it turns out to be quite challenging to explain well. You want to develop a writing technique in which nothing gets copied-and-changed, all the wording is entirely different from the sources. There's a bit of advice at WN:PILLARS#own, and some discussion at WN:Plagiary.) --Pi zero (talk) 16:09, 22 June 2020 (UTC)[]
