Brion VIBBER, 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! → CGorman (Talk) 11:59, 30 Mar 2005 (UTC)

C, do you know who Brion is?! Still, I expect he appreciated the welcome ;) Dan100 (Talk) 00:19, 31 Mar 2005 (UTC)

== Oversight, if not you who? ==


Can you take a look here, and at the various deleted revisions? Thanks! --Brian McNeil / talk 21:31, 7 March 2007 (UTC)Reply

Request for reviewing and other assistance


Hi. Next week is the start of the IPC Alpine Skiing World Championships and two Wikinewies will be attending to cover the para-alpine skiing ahead of the 2014 Winter Paralympics . This is part of an effort outlined at Wikinews:IPC Alpine Ski World Championships. Immediately following this event, there will be a Meetup in Barcelona where Wikinews, the Paralympics and efforts to similar sport coverage will be discussed. At the moment, there are only two active reviewers on a daily basis. Demonstrating an ability to get reviews for these types of events done quickly is important for Wikinews credibility and gaining access to these types of events. I would really appreciate it if you could sign up on the IPC World Championship page to review, promote articles published during this period, assist in translating these articles into another language or attend the meetup in Barcelona. Thanks. --LauraHale (talk) 09:27, 15 February 2013 (UTC)Reply

Wikinews Writing contest 2013 is here. :) Please sign up to participate?


We've created the Wikinews:Writing contest 2013, which will start on April 1 and end on June 1. It is modeled on the successful 2010 contest. Unlike the previous version, points are available for people who conduct reviews. (With a University of Wollongong class currently contributing articles, extra assistance is appreciated at this time.) It presents a great incentive for you to renew your reviewing chops, contribute some original reporting not being done by the main stream media, and write some synthesis articles on topics that could use more attention. People should be around to review to prevent a backlog if you just want to write, and several reviewers have access to scoop to make it easier to review any original reporting you do. If you are interested in signing up, please do so on Wikinews:Writing contest 2013/entrants. There is at least one prize on offer for the winner along with the opportunity to earn some barn stars as a way of thanking you for your participation. :D --LauraHale (talk) 10:35, 25 March 2013 (UTC)Reply



I noticed you're listed as a reviewer, but you haven't been around in a while. Are you still active here?--Bddpaux (talk) 14:46, 27 June 2014 (UTC)Reply

Vibber is a developer IIRC. --Diego Grez (talk) 14:47, 27 June 2014 (UTC)Reply
quoting from w:User:Brion VIBBER: "I'm currently the Lead Software Architect for the Wikimedia Foundation and a member of the Mobile Apps development team. I've been around for a while." (In fact the creation date on the en.wp is January 2002.) --Pi zero (talk) 15:39, 27 June 2014 (UTC)Reply
Aye that's me. Feel free to do whatever to my permissions, I'm not very active here on wikinews. --Brion VIBBER (talk) 16:51, 27 June 2014 (UTC)Reply
Meh, we'll leave you alone for now. --Bddpaux (talk) 19:12, 27 June 2014 (UTC)Reply


Busy elsewhere? We understand, but this is a notice of privilege expiry!

Note! Your Wikinews reviewer permission has been removed.

Under the permission expiry policy (enacted October 13, 2012) the permissions held by your account have been reduced due to inactivity, or lack of use. You can view your user permissions log here.
We all understand that real-life commitments can severely curtail the level of commitment you can give to Wikinews; the permission reduction is not intended as a reflection on your past work, or to imply you are unwelcome. The aim in curtailing permissions 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.
