Areas of interest: None in particular. I'm planning to become an accredited observer for the next round of UK elections, but that's not 'till 2011.
Reason: I have come across several occasions in which it would be useful to have a Wikinewsie e-mail address, with accreditation. For example, in an effort to check to see if this file was actually a publicity shot, I tried looking at the FIFA website, only to find that it's media-only access to the section I was after. Actually getting into the media-only section seems rather trivial once accreditation is obtained -- some guy managed to get in as a representative of "Wikki Magazine" (sic.). It would also help me (and boost my confidence) when I e-mail various media representatives to verify facts, or to request clarification, as this is something I'm put off doing at the moment. I'd like to have access to the press releases that, I assume, come through to scoop.
Contact information: I would prefer to not give out my personal e-mail address (although it's out there on some mailing lists already)

Finally, please take this opportunity to explore the new subpage system I have put in place for accreditation requests. Please put feedback on the appropriate Water Cooler section. Regards, — μ 10:04, June 11 2010 (UTC)
I am currently on a wikibreak for the next few weeks. Please take this into account when supporting or opposing. — μ 08:09, June 23 2010 (UTC)
