Review of revision 1375732 [Not ready][edit]

A more unique headline would be good, too. --Pi zero (talk) 19:20, 19 January 2012 (UTC)

[1] Press TV also reports the same time. Could you please cite the source which gives a different time? I am not sure if this news article should be moved to shorts or not. Please suggest. I am moving the article to a more unique title 6.1 magnitude earthquake strikes New Zealand, no damages reported Srinivas 08:33, 20 January 2012 (UTC)
This has gotten somewhat complicated.
  • Good title change, btw.
  • The source that gave a different time was a local New Zealand paper; I can dig up the URL a little later (have less than zero time, right now — i.e., I'm late for something irl).
  • Someone else submitted it as a short (including your personal hidden category), as an addition to a published collection of shorts for today.
  • The third source you provided looks to me like it got its data about the quake from AFP, in which case it isn't independent corroboration for the time. Given that it was a short, I half-removed the time by changing it to "late in the day", removed the third source since it wasn't serving a purpose, and published the addition to the collection of shorts. (I wouldn't have felt comfortable about doing that with an independent article, even if DragonFire1024 hadn't also tagged it minimal.) Then I made this article a redirect (which is how we do article merges).
