With few exceptions, nearly all of my work will be copy-editing. If any of my ce's change the meaning, please inform me on ways I can fix this. Thank you.

(Also, I'm terribly new, so I'm liable to screw something up that a normal editor would never think about doing ;-)

Just wanted to say that the restructuring you did to the article I recently started really makes a lot more sense, and is a big improvement. Thanks. Jade Knight (talk) 13:57, 13 November 2008 (UTC)

The reason the redirect you created (then got deleted) didn't work is because you didn't put the two square brackets around the link.

Fox example #REDIRECT [[Portal:Venezuela]] will work, while #REDIRECT Portal:Venezuela will not

Hi. When publishing an article you need to place the {{Peer reviewed}} template on the talk page of the article that you are reviewing. Could you please place this template on the article you recently published? Thanks:). Gopher65talk 01:35, 14 March 2009 (UTC)

Thank you:). That was fast. Gopher65talk 01:46, 14 March 2009 (UTC)

Note! Your privileges on English Wikinews have been reduced.

Under the Privilege expiry policy (enacted October 13, 2012) the rights held by your user account have been reduced due to inactivity, or lack of privilege use. You can view your user rights log here.
Point 4 of the Privilege expiry policy provides for fast-tracking reacquisition of privileges. We all understand that real-life commitments can severely curtail the level of commitment you can give to Wikinews; the privilege reduction is in no way intended as a reflection on your past work, or to imply you are unwelcome. The aim in curtailing privileges 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.
