latest news box Tram shooting: suspect arrested

Welcome to Wikinews

A nice cup of coffee for you while you get started

Getting started as a contributor
How to write an article
  1. Pick something current?
  2. Use two independent sources?
  3. Read your sources before writing the story in your own words?. Do choose a unique title? before you start.
  4. Follow Wikinews' structure? for articles, answering as many of who what when where why and how? as you can; summarised in a short, two- or three-sentence opening paragraph. Once complete, your article must be three or more paragraphs.
  5. If you need help, you can add {{helpme}} to your talkpage, along with a question, or alternatively, just ask?

  • Use this tab to enter your title and get a basic article template.
    [RECOMMENDED. Starts your article through the semi-automated {{develop}}—>{{review}}—>{{publish}} collaboration process.]

 Welcome! Thank you for joining Wikinews; we'd love for you to stick around and get more involved. To help you get started we have an essay that will guide you through the process of writing your first full article. There are many other things you can do on the project, but its lifeblood is new, current, stories written neutrally.
As you get more involved, you will need to look into key project policies and other discussions you can participate in; so, keep this message on this page and refer to the other links in it when you want to learn more, or have any problems.

All Wikimedia projects have rules. Here are ours.

Listed here are the official policies of the project, you may be referred to some of them if your early attempts at writing articles don't follow them. Don't let this discourage you, we all had to start somewhere.

The rules and guides laid out here are intended to keep content to high standards and meet certain rules the Wikimedia Foundation applies to all projects. It may seem like a lot to read, but you do not have to go through it all in one sitting, or know them all before you can start contributing.

Remember, you should enjoy contributing to the project. If you're really stuck come chat with the regulars. There's usually someone in chat who will be happy to help, but they may not respond instantly.

The core policies
Places to go, people to meet

Wiki projects work because a sense of community forms around the project. Although writing news is far more individualistic than contributing to Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia, people often need minor help with things like spelling and copyediting. If a story isn't too old you might be able to expand it, or if it is disputed you may be able to find some more sources and rescue it before it is listed for deletion.

There are always discussions going on about how the site could be improved, and your input is of value. Check the links here to see where you can give input to the running of the Wikinews project.

Write your first article for Wikinews!

Use the following box to help you create your first article. Simply type in a title to your story and press "Create page". Then start typing text to your story into the new box that will come up. When you're done, press "save page". That's all there is to it!

It is recommended you read the article guide before starting. Also make sure to check the list of recently created articles to see if your story hasn't already been reported upon.

Two things


First, although I really do appreciate your intent, with your further work on the zoo fire article, I'm reviewing it — with an {{under review}} template at the top that requests folks avoid editing it directly, instead leaving a note on the article talk page.

Second, I'd wanted to alert you to a possible difficulty, that new contributors to Wikinews sometimes get into: submitting a second article before getting feedback on the first. The first article is usually a massive learning experience, and there are apt to be problems that come up during review (it's very unusual for a first article to pass on the first review). So it's a major advantage, going into a second article, to have already gotten feedback on the first one. --Pi zero (talk) 22:21, 16 December 2018 (UTC) Ok thanks!Qwerty number1 (talk) 22:42, 16 December 2018 (UTC)Reply

Urk! Please don't edit the article while it's under review. --Pi zero (talk) 22:53, 16 December 2018 (UTC)Reply

I've done the review. A solid first submission; I did all I could, it needs some additional work from you but I do think we can get this published. See my review comments. --Pi zero (talk) 00:22, 17 December 2018 (UTC)Reply

@Pi zero: Ok, I thought that only meant content. Sorry, Qwerty number1 (talk) 08:14, 17 December 2018 (UTC)Reply

Congrats on getting your first article published! (I'm guessing you've see the review comments and edits during review; if not, do take a look. :-)

I figure on tackling the Australia article next, btw, so the Theresa May piece may wait a bit (unless another reviewer picks it up). --Pi zero (talk) 18:48, 17 December 2018 (UTC)Reply

Theresa May article


Oops. I didn't mean to rename the article without leaving a redirect; that can cause problems, if somebody else is editing the article at the time, as the wiki software then won't warn them that the article has been moved when they go to save their edits. Sorry about that. (We can fix the mess if it happens, but life is simpler if the problem doesn't arise.) --Pi zero (talk) 18:44, 17 December 2018 (UTC)Reply

Article creation forms


It looks as if you didn't use one of our article creation forms for the Prague article you've written. Is that a mere oversight, or is there some difficulty with that form? (If there's any difficulty with it, we want to know.) --Pi zero (talk) 22:35, 17 December 2018 (UTC)Reply

@Pi zero: What is a article creation form? Qwerty number1 (talk) 11:59, 18 December 2018 (UTC)Reply
An input box where one can type in an article title and then click a button, typically labeled "create an page". There's one like that on page WN:WRITE. (I tried to think where else we have them; we often say they're "scattered around the site", after all. There's one at the top of this page, Howdy message, right-hand tab. Also, Wikinews:Newsroom; Main Page; Wikinews:Article wizard.) --Pi zero (talk) 12:26, 18 December 2018 (UTC)Reply

Ahhhh... I think I used it before, cannot remember if I did it with the Prague one. Pretty sure it worked. Unsure how I could have done it otherwise. Is it an issue with me doing it like that? Still Qwerty number1 (talk)( but at 12:32, 18 December 2018 (UTC)) (feeling confused if I did use the box).Reply

I always use WN:WRITE when I write articles (not that I do so often). It takes care of some basic formatting that's, well, simple enough once one's used to it, but easier to have provided. --Pi zero (talk) 12:57, 18 December 2018 (UTC)Reply

Ok,Qwerty number1 (talk) 12:59, 18 December 2018 (UTC)Reply

A general observation


A couple of things to keep in mind.

  • Each article is a learning experience; yes, the first article is generally the single biggest hurdle, but there will continue to be more things to learn with each article, that it'll be easier for everyone if one learns before making some mistake repeatedly.
  • We have limited review capacity. Depending on circumstances, reviewing may take longer, perhaps a lot longer, than writing it did; and often (though not always) I'm the only active reviewer doing full reviews. Especially well-written articles are lots easier to review, and when I'm in good form I can maybe review two shortish well-written articles per day. (Lately, alas, I'm often not in such good form.)

Re: Six members of illegal neo-Nazi group sentenced in England


Where was the court where the event occurred? Could you please include this in the first paragraph. Let me know if you need any help. --Gryllida (talk) 07:18, 19 December 2018 (UTC)Reply

Also published. See the review comments, of course, and the article history. --Pi zero (talk) 21:15, 19 December 2018 (UTC)Reply

There are some minor, and some major issues with the article. Minor ones like the style of date (WN:DATE) and number (WN:Number) are certain things which once noted, you can remember for ever. However, the way to form the article, and citing Wikipedia--that is something I can not fix as an independent reviewer, and you would have to get that done. Oh, by the way: did you read the inverted pyramid structure?
•–• 12:17, 20 December 2018 (UTC)Reply

WN:PYRAMID might be something you should go through. While I appreciate your enthusiasm, and frankly, I can't seem to recall any newbie submitting articles at this rate before, I would advice you to go through the edit history, and also reading the WN:SG, little by little. You will learn a lot by writing, and observing how the reviewers or other editors handle certain things, however, if you keep on writing and not see the edit history, it may turn out to be very difficult to improve.

Looks as if the learning value of this is going to have to be its legacy; I'd really have liked to get that story into our archives, but, well. Review comments. --Pi zero (talk) 22:28, 20 December 2018 (UTC)Reply



Since coming back to this project I've been pushing out some articles in order to get Wikinews some degree of output for the present. I'm painfully aware that a byproduct is the Gatwick story you've been working so hard on is liable to go stale. Again. Don't despair, though; I think the material already there is a really solid foundation and with the situation continuing to update there's still plenty of scope to produce and publish a really great article. I hope either tomorrow, or Wednesday after I finish work, to roll up my sleeves and get stuck into helping it be the best it possibly can. After all, the amount of effort you've put into this one really does deserve to be properly recognised.

Actually, you did the right thing. Once I took a look at the article you were working on, I saw it was the one we all worked on a while ago. You were updating it.

Tens of thousands protest against talks in Spain


Hi. Some concerns, not-ready on review; see review comments, history of edits during review. --Pi zero (talk) 14:18, 12 February 2019 (UTC)Reply

Hi. Published. :-)  Review comments; detailed history of edits during review.

Some things to work on:

  • I realize "use your own words" can be frustrating to hear, but, it's one of those things that gets easier with practice (which I say after a lot of practice). You want to develop a writing technique that, amongst other things, doesn't involve copying and then modifying. (I really do need to find a way to complete the essay I've been writing for several years on how to do this sort of thing.)
  • For news, the more substance the better. On a death, some quotes are good and can be illuminating, but only go so far. I remarked about this in my review comments. Ask, what is the most important information about this event, that we might be able to report to our readers to help them be more informed about it? We use, as our basic house style, an inverted pyramid, so the more important information is, the earlier in the article it should be.
  • There are, of course, background tasks you'll get the hang of after a while; like wikilinks, categories.

Glad to see you keeping at it, continuing to progress. Cheers. :-) --Pi zero (talk) 16:14, 17 February 2019 (UTC)Reply

Saudi Arabia says the crown prince is not attempting to buy manchester united football club: Five Ws in the first paragraph


"Bin Salman, aged 33, is not trying to buy Manchester United, according to Saudi Arabia. Allegations have emerged, despite the owners saying they do not want to sell, that the Saudi prince wants to buy the club."

This seems lacking a bit of context. The 5Ws are not fully elaborated. Perhaps consider this version instead:

Saudi Arabia denied rumours of Mohammad bin Salman, the Crown Prince of the country, wanting to buy Manchester United, an association football club based in Manchester, England. Turki al-Shabanah, the media minister of Saudi Arabia, has expressed this denial on the official Twitter account this Monday.

In October 2018, the owners of the club said they did not want to sell."

If you could find the Twitter link it would also be great.

--Gryllida (talk) 21:50, 18 February 2019 (UTC)Reply

I guess the phrase "The owners of he club have also stated they will not sell the club." is from October last year and does not belong to the first paragraph, or even if it does, in any case the specification of the month and year should be added? --Gryllida (talk) 03:10, 19 February 2019 (UTC)Reply

Saudi Arabia says crown prince not attempting to buy manchester united football club: the third paragraph


"This Sunday, The Sun (United Kingdom), claimed that he had made a takeover bid of £3.8-billion ($4.9-billion). They said the bid was first submitted last October, but Jamal Khashoggi's death stopped it happening then."

I think it may be difficult to read a paragraph that has a 'he' in the first sentence. Perhaps replace it with the name or the position name of the person instead?

--Gryllida (talk) 03:12, 19 February 2019 (UTC)Reply

I suspect the 'manchester united' part is a name and both words should begin with an uppercase letter. This may be fixed by renaming the page. --Gryllida (talk) 03:13, 19 February 2019 (UTC)Reply

Hi. The staleness call is something for reviewers to make; best let us deal with it. Happens that, after an initial session earlier this afternoon, I was just getting back into reviewing it.

@Pi zero: I seem to be getting confused because the sources said the last source was writen on the 18th (fresh for 18,19,20).Is this bad maths, or are the rules different? Qwerty number1 (talk) 22:07, 21 February 2019 (UTC)Reply
The usual discretionary period for freshness is 2–3 days after the event. Here the event took place on the 18th, so two days after would be the 20th and three days after would be the 21st, today. We generally interpret it in terms of calendar days, which means a reviewer might choose to count it fresh without raising eyebrows as long as it's still Thursday UTC — for another hour and three quarters. --Pi zero (talk) 22:15, 21 February 2019 (UTC)Reply

Re: welcome-a-bit


Hi Qwerty number1,

Thanks for signing up! I've set up the list page, the script will see it and send you a talk page message shortly. As you have no topic preference, there is only 'Developing' category on it, which includes all drafts marked with the {{develop}} tag.

Your first message will be a list of what's currently under development in the topics of your interest. The future messages will only contain newly created submissions.

Please let me know if there are any issues with this message delivery. It is designed to encourage the recipient's involvement in helping newcomers, but simply testing the message delivery and reporting bugs would be greatly appreciated!!!

Again like mentioned at my talk page, please remember to read the three documentation pages, talk with authors at their talk page, be light, and only edit the article content after the author asks you for help or walks away. Gryllida (talk) 23:56, 21 February 2019 (UTC)Reply

Re: welcome-a-bit (March)


Hi Qwerty number1

It has been several weeks after you signed up for the 'welcome a bit' notification. Does it work for you? Did it help you with editing new drafts? Do you wish to continue receiving the notifications?

This month I have identified a bug in DynamicPageList extension, which prevents me from excluding archived articles from the initial results. This has been addressed by suppressing the first notifications continue to work as expected.

I see you may have received some notifications twice, in the case when one article belongs to two categories which are interesting to you. I hope to fix this by the end of this month.

Do you have any suggestions for improvement? Thanks, --Gryllida (talk) 04:49, 20 March 2019 (UTC)Reply

@Gryllida: It works really well, but perhaps make notifications appear on sub-page, since otherwise, it fills up talk pages quite quickly.

Thanks, Qwerty number1 (talk) 21:00, 20 March 2019 (UTC)Reply

Thanks, for this suggestion. I was originally using personal talk pages because the new messages on them are a lot easier to discover. I'll implement message delivery to the /wab subpage of your personal talk page and then update your configuration accordingly, and let you know. --Gryllida (talk) 01:13, 21 March 2019 (UTC)Reply

Another option is to have my script automatically remove messages which were delivered over 7 days ago. I am not sure whether this would be a good solution, or you still would like to see these messages and remove them yourself. Gryllida (talk) 01:14, 21 March 2019 (UTC)Reply

@Gryllida: Thanks! This may be hard to implement, but could it be coded so pages that are

  • red links (have been deleted)to
  • published

Are deleted? reply

Thanks for your swift reply,

Qwerty number1 (talk) 21:29, 23 March 2019 (UTC)Reply

Thank you. Firstly I am working on avoiding duplicate notifications. If this works well I will make a release of version 2 this month, and your suggestion may be included into version 3 next month (I will need to sort the suggestions and decide which ones of them go to version 3 and which ones go to version 4). I will keep you updated.
If you have any friends who are programmers or know Perl, please let me know. I would be glad to speak with them and help them get started with improving this tool. Gryllida (talk) 01:01, 25 March 2019 (UTC)Reply

Technical trick


When leaving a template on a user talk page and signing it (such as {{howdy}}, or {{spamblock}}, or the like), you can put the template and the sig on the same line, but then don't put a space between them. Putting a space between them causes the signature line to come out in typewriter font. --Pi zero (talk) 13:05, 24 March 2019 (UTC)Reply

You wanted to easier remove the notifications from 'welcome a bit' tool in the case when they are delivered to your personal talk page. A script is available now to facilitate this. If you add

Somehow, this article you submitted had a {{date}} template with no parameter. That should not ever happen. The template should always have a fixed date; the fixed date is updated at the time of publication, by the review gadget, to reflect the actual date of publication, but when you submit the article the date template should reflect the time relative to which you wrote it. Otherwise, it's harder for a reviewer to figure out what was originally meant by "today" or "yesterday".

Are you using one of our article creation forms (such as the one at WN:WRITE)? Those article creation forms put in complicated-looking wiki markup for the parameter to {{date}}, with afaik a comment telling the writer to just not touch it, and when saved it'll simplify to the actual date on which the page was created. --Pi zero (talk) 13:51, 21 May 2019 (UTC)Reply
