Wikinews:Sochi Paralympic Games
Hi. I've been in poor communication lately as life has been busy and a lot of things have been going on. I wanted to bring Wikinews:Sochi Paralympic Games to people's attention because everything came together about in the past two weeks to make this a reality, including accreditation arriving, WM-UA getting funding, and accommodation being booked. The only English Wikinewsie attending will be me. Unlike the London Paralympics or other large sporting events I have covered, I do not expect English Wikinews to be getting blasted with 2 to 6 articles a day (70 total articles were created in the 3 weeks around London as a point of reference, 21 around the 5 day long IPC Alpine World Championships). The volume should be lower at 1 to 2 articles a day. --LauraHale (talk) 19:35, 27 February 2014 (UTC)
- That's gonna be, to state the obvious, really cool. BRS (Talk) (Contribs) 15:54, 28 February 2014 (UTC)
- I'm interested to see what you get out of this, given that Putin seems to have decided the end of the 'regular' Winter Olympics means he can invade Crimea.
- If the conditions for journalists are as-bad as some of the mainstream reported, I think that's something to keep until you're out of the country. JWS isn't on a secure connection, you can assume the Russian authorities will be monitoring journalists' communications, so stay safe. --Brian McNeil / talk 20:45, 28 February 2014 (UTC)
