Welcome!, welcome to Wikinews, the free news source you can write!

Firefox article


Since the article was published on the 18th, references to "today" should be fairly unambiguous. I'm sure if you look through a few articles, you'll see references to "today", "yesterday", "this week", etc. It's not a huge issue, and I don't think it's worth me reverting you, just a little heads up.

In 2 years no one is going to know which "today" is referred to without cross referencing with Guiness or other news source. Now when I read this article in 1,2,3 years in "This day in past news" I'll know which day it is referring to. Glad it's not a huge issue :-)

Every article has a date on it, right up the top. Even this one. Chris Mann (Say hi!|Stalk me!) 06:19, 19 June 2008 (UTC)Reply

hmm, I see no dates except in your .sig . The other thing is that Wikinews being 'CC attribution' content people are going to cut, paste and share. Thus taking the paragraph out of the context of the page.

By "this page" I actually meant that one, i.e. the Firefox article: my bad. Still, the "attribution" means that they have to link to the source, and since it's attributed to "Wikinews" that means the original article. I understand what you're talking about, but I guess I just feel it's more "appropriate" to use "today", "last week" and so forth, just as you would use in mainstream media, or in casual conversation. Speaking of sigs, though, do you mind signing what you write on talk pages? It's just a matter of four tildes (~~~~), or clicking the button above the edit box that kind of looks like a signature (between the struck-out W and the horizontal line). It helps manage the flow of conversation, and is generally considered good "Wikiquette". Thanks, Chris Mann (Say hi!|Stalk me!) 05:51, 2 July 2008 (UTC)Reply
