Why does the Main Page suddenly say "Welcome to Canada's Wikinews"?!? Van der Hoorn (talk) 00:53, 1 April 2009 (UTC)

Look at the date stamp of your question. --ShakataGaNai ^_^ 00:53, 1 April 2009 (UTC)
Ahh, yes. UTC. You got me there. :) Better archive this message before others find out as well. Cheers, Van der Hoorn (talk) 00:55, 1 April 2009 (UTC)
We aim to please ^_^ Thats also why I removed the date from the header. --ShakataGaNai ^_^ 01:00, 1 April 2009 (UTC)

You win.

I am Canadian too. :3 ViperSnake151 (talk) 01:40, 1 April 2009 (UTC)


I noticed you deleted Template:Mbox recently. Was there a specific reason? Or can I create it (copy from Wikipedia). It appears the template is required by some other templates. See Special:WantedTemplates. Cheers, Van der Hoorn (talk) 21:26, 2 April 2009 (UTC)

It seems there is very few _real_ uses of it. All of them that I see are from {{Documentation subpage}}. Not saying that is a bad thing or anything. I simply deleted them because an IP was coming by and spam creating Templates. If we actually needed the templates, a real user would have created them. Basically... I'm suspicious of IP's. --ShakataGaNai ^_^ 23:14, 2 April 2009 (UTC)
You should. :) It's hard to give trust to IP edits. I recreated the page; hope you don't mind... Cheers, Van der Hoorn (talk) 18:17, 3 April 2009 (UTC)

Ten April Fool's pranks of 2009

Edited somewhat the article. I peeked into the sites which had caught your eye, do you know of the "favourite" gaming gag upon the sites, or an editor whom writes "gaming news" on wikinews? I added wikipedia pranks and the main page wikipedia anniversaries, FA, DYK, news, is there an archive of wikinews news? Kind RegardsSriMesh | talk 21:39, 2 April 2009 (UTC)

Your Main Page edits

Hi! I noticed you removed the news in pictures and the create an article box. Could I ask why? You said in your edit summary that it levels out the main page, however, I honestly don't think it looks as good this way, as the NIP and create an article box helped fill in the whitespaces, and the main page looks a bit empty without it. Feel free to respond here or at Talk:Main Page#Main Page redesign, take two, where there's currently a discussion on a new main page format. Cheers. tempodivalse 16:46, 14 April 2009 (UTC)

NIP is weeks/months out of date. --ShakataGaNai ^_^ 18:56, 14 April 2009 (UTC)
Well, you could update it   ... tempodivalse

A penny for your thoughts

Okay, not really, but I am requesting your participation in the following Water Cooler Discussion: OR and Broadcast report. The discussion involves the need for specific policy concerning how Original Reporting relates to information recieved from a broadcast report of an event. This can include both news-style reports and non-news reports, such as a sporting event. Thanks and again, please share your thoughts on this so we can get as many people involved as possible, especially since this relates to an important topic such as OR. —Calebrw (talk) 05:18, 27 April 2009 (UTC)
