• Unless something GIGANTIC plops itself in my lap, I am standing down as a reporter for the rest of 2020...I'm just too busy. I might do a bit of Admin cleanup and Reviewing here and there, but I'm not tackling any big OR endeavors. Just too much going on. --Bddpaux (talk) 22:28, 20 March 2020 (UTC)




Absolutely free advice for any new writers here:

  • Within the first 3 sentences of any article you're writing, ask yourself, "Would a school teacher in Manila care about this? What about a waiter in Sydney or a young mother in Hong Kong?" The answer should be a quick 'Yes', or you might be wasting your time here: this is an international news site.
  • I live by this rule about articles/submissions here: Get it, write it, submit it, move on. You'll be helping yourself if you adopt that motto too.
