Areas of interest: Disasters and Accidents, Meteorology, Crime and Law and Health
Reason: Accreditation would be helpful to get information from the sources themselves instead of pulling extracts from other news agencies. Could help me net interviews and get info from pr departments of various entities eg. Police departments on the specifics of an accident or to get pictures whether they be surveillance pictures or otherwise. So generally I'm submitting to use the credentials for OR.
Accomplishments: A list of articles can be found here here. For the most part I'm proud of them all, the first few might be a little off though since I was getting used to the project then. If I had to make a choice I'd say the last four I created today are pretty good in my eyes.

Seconding this application: I spoke with Bobby122 via IRC in the early hours of this morning, shortly before this Accreditation Request was filed, and suggested that he should apply for Accreditation. Bobby's been with us for over 3 months now, during which time he has turned out or assisted in over 40 articles. I have seen some of his material and I agree totally with his own assessment, that while he was getting used to WN, his work was a bit off, but he has improved significantly in the last few articles he's produced and worked on, and I consider it absolutely right that he should apply for AR status. Consider this a Support as a seconder to this application. BarkingFish (talk) 19:50, 15 December 2010 (UTC)
Support: This user has done some good work, and accreditation seems to be the logical next step. ΔενδοδγεTinsel\Christmas! 23:05, 19 December 2010 (UTC)
Support, by-and-large backing what others have said above. I'm sure Bobby is ready to move on to the Social engineering aspects of journalism. Cultivate your contacts, use "Jedi Mind Tricks" to convince them it's important to talk to you, and take detailed notes. --Brian McNeil / talk 08:06, 22 December 2010 (UTC)
Making up; but, concerned about voter apathy. --Brian McNeil / talk 18:36, 5 January 2011 (UTC)
