Freshness[edit]

Although this is a good deal fresher than the article submitted last year (which was more than a week after the event), it's still five days old and I'm really hesitating over that. I'm not entirely sure, though — as best I can tell, there seems to have been no coverage of this story at all in the English media.

So I'm going to think this over whilst doing away-from-keyboard for a while here. --Pi zero (talk) 16:56, 2 November 2013 (UTC)

Hi. I think you did a terrific work editing the article. Although there is actually no coverage in the English media, the sources are reliable an show a consistent interest on the matter. I think that, as an independent media, Wikinews has to be able to open up possibilities for the information once it is reliable based on consistent sources, other way will always be "behind" the main stream media.--FiloActual (talk) 17:35, 2 November 2013 (UTC)
The lack of coverage in the English media is a big point in favor of treating the article as fresh; honestly, it's the only reason I'm considering it. (No real idea what I'll find when I do the source-check, which I hope to start now). --Pi zero (talk) 18:30, 2 November 2013 (UTC)
I'm getting worried, though, trying to understand the dates involved. If this is five days old, that's pushing it but perhaps not pushing it too far; so, trying to understand why there's a source that appears to be for the event that's dated the 19th (I really need to understand exactly what it is that happened on the 28th). --Pi zero (talk) 18:51, 2 November 2013 (UTC)
It reads on the official website the date the information was officially aired October 30th: here http://www.spanishbenevolentsociety.org/index/en/SPANISH+BENEVOLENT+SOCIETY+OF+NEW+YORK/AWARDS/
Looking... --Pi zero (talk) 19:20, 2 November 2013 (UTC)
Awesome; that puts it within the conventional three days. :-D  --Pi zero (talk) 19:28, 2 November 2013 (UTC)
