@Pi zero: Hi again, I know I'm stuck on a topic but I figured a follow-up was now necessary...Little issue, after you changed the name (sorry about breaking the 'breaking' rule) I can't find the story in the Newsroom while logged off. Is that an issue? A bad re-direct maybe? -- Liv UOW (talk) 13:41, 18 April 2016 (UTC)
@Liv UOW: I see it there (under subitted-for-revI iew rather than developing). In general, if the newsroom isn't showing what it ought to, you may be able to fix it by clicking the "refresh" icon. --Pi zero (talk) 14:05, 18 April 2016 (UTC)
@Pi zero: okay 👌 thanks' -- (talk) 14:59, 18 April 2016 (UTC)

Review of revision 4207913 [Not ready][edit]

@Pi zero: Yes I was keeping an eye on the developments and any comments here throughout the day. I've just finished this write up now, hopefully it's not too messy.

Just wondering, in terms of time references in the article, do I write them as current, even though a reviewer may not get the piece published until the following day and will have to make the changes. e.g. I write "today this happened" and they must obviously change it if it's publish the following day. --Liv UOW (talk) 13:02, 20 April 2016 (UTC)

@Liv UOW: This has been an awkward point for as long as I've been on Wikinews (I guess that's going on seven years now [wrong; going on eight years]). Two likely techniques:
  • use the currently correct term "today" or "yesterday" and put after it an html comment with the day of the week, such as today<!-- on Wednesday -->.
  • use the day of the week, hoping the reviewer will remember to change it to "today" or "yesterday" as appropriate.
Neither technique is foolproof, although the second technique has the advantage that if the reviewer forgets to alter the relative dates at all, at least they'll be technically correct though not giving maximal immediacy. --Pi zero (talk) 13:57, 20 April 2016 (UTC)
