Thanks for the addition. Do you have a source for this? - Amgine 01:38, 2 Apr 2005 (UTC)
Here, have a boilerplate. Some of our policies are subtly different from other wikis, and it should be a handy reference.
Our key policies - if you read anything, read these!
- Wikinews:Neutral point of view - tell every side to a story in a fair and balanced way
- Wikinews:Cite sources - everything in a Wikinews article must be sourced
Here a few pointers to help you get to know Wikinews:
- Wikinews:Introduction - overview of the site
- Wikinews:Writing an article - how to write and publish a complete article
- Wikinews:Content guide - what's suitable for Wikinews
- Wikinews:Contents - the contents page.
- Wikinews:Newsroom - The comunity portal
There are always things to do on Wikinews:
- Existing articles need expanding and checking for spelling and mistakes
- The front page lead articles often need updating
- Developing stories need finishing and publishing
- Discussions need your input
- And of course, stories need writing!
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! --Brian McNeil / talk 19:35, 24 February 2006 (UTC)
Thank you for your interest in this article. However, changes should not be made to articles that have been published for days. Unlike Wikipedia, where articles are works-in-progress, news is "as of" the date it was published. Imagine an old-fashioned print-newspaper, once it is printed it doesn't change (even if it is wrong). Cheers, --SVTCobra 02:17, 19 July 2007 (UTC)
