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 14:52, 25 Mar 2005 (UTC)

Thanks for the welcome, CGorman.

Dialogue edit

I'm ready for dialogue, how about you? Paulrevere2005 20:45, 1 August 2005 (UTC)Reply

Yup. So, basically, I'm just trying to figure out the best place for your political thoughts to go. You've made some excellent points, and I do agree with your overall view, but I'm approaching this from a "librarian" perspective - finding the ideal location and structure for information. I've seen some places where you've posted the same chunk of text on multiple article talk pages, which kind of clutters them up and gets a bit redundant. One thing I've done when I want to express the same idea on a bunch of pages is to create subpages in my userspace, like "User:Phyzome/Essays/Political" or something of that nature. Then I can reference them from talk pages without interfering overly with any discussion that's going on there. Incidentally, this is very useful for topics like Evolution vs. Creationism where the same points get raised over and over again, requiring the same rebuttals. What do you think? -- Phyzome is Tim McCormack 14:11, August 2, 2005 (UTC)

BREAKING NEWS story is perfect edit

It is the BEST article wikinews has ever had, if you've got a problem with it fix it up yourself 21:43, 15 September 2005 (UTC)Reply

[I assume you are referring to this, now here.] I beg to differ. It would be a great news story, if the sources made any mention of what you claimed. Incidientally, the only change I made was to move it back from <<publish>> to <<develop>> -- it simply was not in anything near a publishable form, even for breaking news. I'll leave debate regarding the article's technical accuracy and newsworthiness to its talk page. -- Phyzome is Tim McCormack 14:49, 16 September 2005 (UTC)Reply

Copyright infringement? (7 yearold chased by police) DragonFire1024

Yes, this edit appears to be a straight copy from here. I've reverted to the previous version. -- Phyzome is [[User talk:Phyzome|Tim McCormack]] 22:14, 11 January 2006 (UTC)Reply
