You don't need accreditation to contribute to Wikinews. You should gain some experience with writing synthesis here, to start with. Then, with a bit of experience, you can move up to original reporting. And then would be the time to apply for accreditation. So, not now. --Pi zero (talk) 01:15, 30 August 2014 (UTC)
Oppose I believe you need to learn your way around here just a bit more first. --Bddpaux (talk) 20:38, 3 September 2014 (UTC)
Not yet... Handing out accreditation to anyone and everyone willing to start is a nice beast, but what we risk here is someone taking a couple pretty pictures but not taking proper notes due to lack of understanding of what has to go to an article for it to be rock solid regarding neutrality and accuracy. For this reason, accreditation isn't handed out before such understanding is demonstrated on smaller tasks — synthesis articles and also optionally smaller instances of original reporting. (If you have a specific event in mind where accreditation is required to get in, please specify details so that someone could consider available means to get it reported here, perhaps with help from both you and local accredited Wikinewsies in the area.) --Gryllida 23:06, 9 September 2014 (UTC)
Not at this time. 'Accomplishments' is intended to be a good-deal more specific than "i was someone who stands for the the communities in my region"; ideally, in contributing to the content on Wikinews. That's how the local community here would become comfortable in extending the trust granting accreditation is. --Brian McNeil / talk 21:51, 10 September 2014 (UTC)
