Spelling in title[edit]

COrrect me if I am wrong, but this is the English Wikinews site. All titles/spelling should be in the English form? Jason Safoutin 01:23, 30 August 2006 (UTC)[reply]

But, which english? FellowWikiNews (W) 01:23, 30 August 2006 (UTC)[reply]
Example: Defence should be Defense Jason Safoutin 01:25, 30 August 2006 (UTC)[reply]
The title is in Canadian spelling. I say that we keep it that way. FellowWikiNews (W) 01:25, 30 August 2006 (UTC)[reply]
No matter to me...Was just an observation :) Jason Safoutin 01:28, 30 August 2006 (UTC)[reply]
I just left a note on IRC. FellowWikiNews (W) 01:30, 30 August 2006 (UTC)[reply]
Ok. Seems like there is no problem. FellowWikiNews (W) 01:32, 30 August 2006 (UTC)[reply]
Is he visiting Canadian troops or Afgan troops? The title now implies that he is going to visit the troops of afghanistan. Jason Safoutin 02:24, 30 August 2006 (UTC)[reply]
He's visiting Canadian troops in Afghanistan. FellowWikiNews (W) 02:26, 30 August 2006 (UTC)[reply]
Fixed title. FellowWikiNews (W) 02:28, 30 August 2006 (UTC)[reply]
Ok. You got to the title before I could :) Jason Safoutin 02:29, 30 August 2006 (UTC)[reply]
I fail to see why the spelling thing is still an issue. Most (if not all) of the 53 countries that make up the British Commonwealth use British spellings (as opposed to the few countries that use American ones). We also use the metric system and play cricket. Get used to it! Please. PVJ(Talk)Flag of India.svg 11:57, 31 August 2006 (UTC)[reply]


I would like to find an image of O'Connor in Afghanistan. But they all come from other news sources. FellowWikiNews (W) 15:15, 30 August 2006 (UTC)[reply]
