Welcome[edit]

AdamM, welcome to Wikinews! I hope you like the place and decide to stay. Here are a few good links for newcomers:

Our key policies - if you read anything, read these!

Here a few pointers to help you get to know Wikinews:

There are always things to do on Wikinews:

By the way, you can sign your name on Talk pages using four tildes (~~~~), which produces your name and the current date. If you have any questions, you can ask them at the water cooler or to anyone on the Welcommittee, or ask me on my Talk page. Again, welcome! --Brian McNeil / talk 07:26, 24 March 2008 (UTC)

Glasgow East[edit]

Maybe not. But I think it's better to have new news than old. At least it gives the impression that Wikinews is keeping up to date. (The story I overwrote as lead article 2 was a day old). But, hey, if an article catches your eye that you think should be there instead of the by-election, feel free to update Template:Lead article 2! Yours, Harris Morgan (talk) 23:12, 8 July 2008 (UTC).

Editor Promotion[edit]

I have promoted you to the Wikinews:Editor class, as I feel you can be trusted to mark revisions of articles as sighted (review). Please take a moment to read:

If you have any questions don't hesitate to ask for help on my talk page, and thank you for contributing to Wikinews!

Apple Inc. co-founder Steve Jobs dies aged 56[edit]

Policy prohibits self-sighting of substantive edits to published articles, and prohibits them altogether more than 24 hours after publication. I'm inclined not to quibble strongly over the stylistic edits you made, although they were more intrusive than we usually engage in past 24 hours (and if I'd made them within 24 hours I certainly wouldn't have self-sighted); but your removal of the word "yesterday" is clearly substantive and should not have been self-sighted. --Pi zero (talk) 20:46, 8 October 2011 (UTC)

privs[edit]

Busy elsewhere? We understand, but this is a notice of privilege expiry!

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.
