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! CGorman 14:50, 25 Mar 2005 (UTC)

CopyeditingEdit

Hi... just wanted to thank you for your copyediting of articles... I never was a good spella, and sometimes I get a little excited while typing. :-) Thanks again..... - Borofkin 00:24, 30 August 2005 (UTC)


Wikinews Needs You !Edit

Welcome :) Wikinews needs more gutsy reporters. Please give Wikinews as much time as your schedule allows. Neutralizer 19:57, 24 November 2005 (UTC)

Serious TopicEdit

I agree, you may wish to look back at the parts of the article that were censored out; http://en.wikinews.org/w/index.php?title=60th_anniversary_of_Nuremberg_trials_marked&oldid=166999

and at these articles to see not only how serious the topic still is.

Thanks for the thoughtful response and encouragement .I have found that from day 1 I have been under constant and vicious personal attack; e.g. "The Fox article you cite for your crusade to get Wikinews to insinuate GWB is a Nazi is not in the least related to the anniversary of the start of the Nuremberg trials. Brian McNeil / talk 08:59, 25 November 2005 (UTC)" which I have found extremely distracting and draining. Neutralizer 20:35, 25 November 2005 (UTC)

Public relationsEdit

Hi, I thought you would want to read this, if you haven't already http://en.wikinews.org/wiki/GAO_reveals_%241.6_billion_spent_on_public_relations_by_the_Bush_administration_in_2003-2005

Please do not bias, or add substantial content, to a published article. If you have further or new information, please create a new article detailing this information. - Amgine | talk en.WN 20:54, 23 March 2006 (UTC)

i agree with this, but i did not add bias, nor did i add substantial comment to published articles - i adding missing wikipedia background to one article and i NPOVed some biased statements in another. Is this a bad thing? Boud 21:28, 23 March 2006 (UTC)
Yes. You added content which was not known by the reporters at the time, and which might have substantially altered other elements of the story were it known. Further, you clearly added bias to the article, bias which in some cases was potentially libelous. I strongly encourage you to re-read WN:NPOV regarding reporting people's opinion, rather than stating it as fact or stating your own opinion as fact. - Amgine | talk en.WN 21:33, 23 March 2006 (UTC)
