ArticlesEdit

 
For Wikinewsies who have created, authored or contributed at least 3 paragraphs to 1-10 stories.


Topics challengeEdit

I will write at least one article in each topic area, place the "Done" template when completed, and recommend one, two or possibly three articles credited to me. (See: Community standard for credit under the "Intern" or "Cub Reporter" graphic.) No article will be listed in multiple categories, and the chosen category should be immediately intuitive. Recommended articles are ordered from new to old. My "To Do" list is in boldface.

Media challengeEdit

Similar to the above guidelines, but I will use a variety of tools to tell interesting stories and provide context and perspective to the facts. I will document my sources for each use below in my reporter's notes on the talk page of the article for transparency.

Note: Only temporarily double counting for purposes of examples until I get more articles under my belt.

  • Include human observation in a story where you have also conducted an interview   Not done Note: Your own observation is considered primary. Observations from others is sourced and called secondary. Both should be documented in your notes. State in the story that Wikinews was present.
