Generic comments[edit]

Before resubmitting your article, you may want to go through this checklist. It provides additional information about what reviewers are looking for. If you can check everything off this list before hitting submit, you will greatly increase your chances of the article getting published.
  • The article needs wikilinks to important concepts, often most easily identifiable because they are proper nouns like people's names or place locations. This can be done like this ( {{w|Spain|this}} . More information on how to do this can be found at Wikilinking an article.
  • The article has no or few categories. All Wikinews articles belong in at least two categories. The first is a regional category like North America or Oceania or Europe or the Middle East. The second is a topic category like Politics and conflict or Sports or Disasters and accidents‎. When adding categories, please keep in mind you should not create a category and you should only use existing categories. You may want to search and find articles similar to yours to get an idea for what categories you can add.
  • The lede, which should briefly summarize the focal news event by succinctly answering as many as reasonably possible of the basic questions about it such as who, what, where, when and why this is news, needs to be expanded. It currently does not answer one or more of these questions.
  • The sources in the article are not properly formatted. The fields should be filled out as completely as possible, with acronyms like ABC and AP spelled out for international audiences. The date should not include a time. Dates should be consistently formatted, using either DAY MONTH YEAR or MONTH DAY, YEAR. Authors should be included if known using FIRST NAME LAST NAME using Capital Case. For two authors, the names should be seperated using the word and.

Making changes[edit]

I am going through and making the necessary changes now. I do not remember how to add categories. How do I do that? JustinRLaw (talk) 22:00, 16 April 2014 (UTC)

Well, we usually do it using the HotCat gadget (if you want to try that, you can select gadgets you want to activate on your account using your user preferences, up at the very top of the page). To do it manually, you put category code such as [[Category:France]] at the bottom of the article page. --Pi zero (talk) 22:04, 16 April 2014 (UTC)
Btw, if you're making changes, why is this tagged with the {{review}} tag rather than the {{develop}} tag? --Pi zero (talk) 22:06, 16 April 2014 (UTC)

Review tag, rather than develop tag[edit]

I do not know why it is not under the develop tag... I didn't put it there. What do I need to do to correct that issue? I am not the most tech savvy. JustinRLaw (talk) 23:14, 16 April 2014 (UTC)

Actually, I believe I figured it out and corrected the issue. I merely filled in a template that was provided by my professor. Thanks for bringing that to my attention! JustinRLaw (talk) 23:18, 16 April 2014 (UTC)

Submitted it for review again. JustinRLaw (talk) 23:40, 16 April 2014 (UTC)

Review of revision 2555706 [Not ready][edit]

  • Regarding OR notes — more information should be provided. Under what circumstances did you interview this person? By what medium? Was it recorded, or did you take notes? What form were the notes in? If there's a form of record of the interview that can be emailed (whether it be a direct record, or notes taken), it'd be good to email it to scoop (that's "scoop at wikinewsie dot org"). --Pi zero (talk) 22:01, 17 April 2014 (UTC)
