Aude, welcome to Wikinews! I hope you like the place and decide to stay. Here are a few good links for newcomers:

Our key policies - if you read anything, read these!

Here a few pointers to help you get to know Wikinews:

There are always things to do on Wikinews:

By the way, you can sign your name on Talk pages using four tildes (~~~~), which produces your name and the current date. If you have any questions, you can ask them at the water cooler or to anyone on the Welcommittee, or ask me on my Talk page. Again, welcome! DragonFire1024 10:49, 28 April 2007 (UTC)


Hey Aude - thanks for the nice note; much appreciated. You're welcome to use any of my photos - anyone is. That's the beauty of GFDL. --David Shankbone 21:42, 25 September 2007 (UTC)

I'm sure most people don't inform you when they use the photos. It's not required, but think it's nice to know. Keep up the great work here. Aude 14:09, 26 September 2007 (UTC)


Note! Your privileges on English Wikinews have been reduced.

Under the Privilege expiry policy (enacted October 13, 2012) the rights held by your user account have been reduced due to inactivity, or lack of privilege use. You can view your user rights log here.
The privilege reduction is in no way intended as a reflection on your past work, or to imply you are unwelcome. The aim in curtailing privileges is to address security risks, and concern that a long period of inactivity means you may not be up-to-date with current policy and practices.
