Wikinews main page is big-picture not useful due to choice of articles[edit]

As of today (Jun 24) the latest 10 stories are 8 death stories and 2 soccer stories. Sorry, this is not actually keeping people up to date with news. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 2620:72:0:60c:7080:8083:7466:d352 (talkcontribs) 20:22, 24 June 2015 (UTC)

We publish articles that are submitted and pass review. Feel free to read WN:PILLARS and WN:WRITE, and then submit your own articles. (Yes, I'm serious. For contribution we do recommend creating an account.) --Pi zero (talk) 20:44, 24 June 2015 (UTC)

'Allen Bond' dead[edit]

Prominent Australian businessman and one time America's Cup winner Alan Bond has died. A new editor has written. Australian businessman, Alan Bond, dies aged 77. I was wondering if he could/should go on the front page here? 220 of Borg (talk) 05:33, 5 June 2015 (UTC)

There are at least two articles about that story on the review queue. I'm not so sure either one will pass review, as both fail to explain in the lede why the story is relevant. Everything that gets published appears, at least briefly; see the first pillar at WN:PILLARS. --Pi zero (talk) 09:53, 5 June 2015 (UTC)
Update: Okay, there are at least three articles about it on the review queue. What a mess. I know from recent unpleasant experience it's quite hazardous to attempt in-depth reviews on more than one article about the same story, as one may lose track of which details have been addressed in which version. -(  --Pi zero (talk) 10:03, 5 June 2015 (UTC)
