Primary Sources edit

I'd like to know if everyone thinks if it was good to make this category. Or should I should I just put it back in sources? Hello32020 17:04, 13 March 2007 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Well, I have thought on it. It is great to have the actual filing. If it were hosted by Viacom or even the court, you could have used the 'source-pr' template. But listing it it as your primary source might be a bit strong. Did you really write you article based on the official court filings or did you rely on the reporting already done by other journalists? I suspect the latter, and if so, I suggest you move it back into 'regular' sources. --SVTCobra 00:52, 14 March 2007 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I apologize if you take offense to this, if you do know, but do you know what a primary source is? Also the article is supported by the filing, but I wrote the text before posting this primary source. Hello32020 01:17, 14 March 2007 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I have not taken offense to anything. I understand that you see the filing as a "source document" versus a "reference". But the way the Wikinews guidelines are set up it doesn't make room for this distinction. --SVTCobra 01:27, 14 March 2007 (UTC)Reply[reply]
