Seems redundant to call it 2010 Men's Brier, when i was under the impression that the brier is men's by definition. Bawolff 04:42, 7 March 2009 (UTC)

Worded it that way for international WWW who weren't familiar that Brier means Men's Canadian curling championship and Scotties means Women's....SriMesh | talk 03:43, 8 March 2009 (UTC)
Could also be Canadian curlers vie for spot in 2010 Winter Olympics, if there was a 2010 winter olympics template, like the Beijing olympics template.  :-) SriMesh | talk 05:27, 8 March 2009 (UTC)

reply to tag[edit]

I believe all the sources are needed for some reason or another, as the beginning listing of articles didn't support some fact or another. Without inline citations, I am not sure...would you like me to list on the talk page why they are on the article like an inline citation? -- if the answer is yes, will plop them here in the morning as it is late here (my time) now.SriMesh | talk 03:43, 8 March 2009 (UTC)

As a general rule, thats probably not needed. At the very least, I've never sen anyone actually do that before. OTOH, perhaps that would help the reviewers, I don't know. (As a sidenote, I once experimented with combining inline and non-inline sources, but it didn't really catch on. That won't help you with your article in any way since the demo isn't live, but since you mentioned inline sources, I was wondering what you thought of the usefulness of such an idea.). user:Bawolff 06:30, 8 March 2009 (UTC)
Well it took me awhile to get used to the concept on wikipedia as schools and what nots just need the bibliography at the article ending such as what is used here. However, when retracing steps, or doing article re-writes or article copy editing, I think it would shorten time, as every article doesn't have to be re-read...even though mayb re reading them would help the copy edit as generally sources are less in quantity and news articles are shorter generally speaking than wikipedia articles. But inline sources really really help pinpoint where the fact comes from, even though in a majority of breaking front page type stories, the inline citations are multitudinous and then which one/s would be used. So there are pros and cons of wikinews inline citations...which I have found interesting, because my very very first article used inline citations awhile ago....
I am reviewing my citations right now...and I will delete a couple, and change one to a more curent one I just re-found. Thank you for your note.SriMesh | talk 06:51, 8 March 2009 (UTC)

Changed citations for the clean up tag...If all sources are not used in the article, then they should be trimmed. Please see WN:SGSriMesh | talk 07:06, 8 March 2009 (UTC)
