Wikinews Thai[edit]

How do you open wikinews??? Pitpisit (talk) 09:26, 9 January 2016 (UTC)

@Pitpisit:Hello there! For a Wikiproject to be started, you need to request it at But if you are asking about Thai Wikinews, it already exists at that was closed
Meta has a page about this at:
Proposals for closing projects/Closure of Thai Wikinews

So now, it is under incubator stage. If editors keep on contributing to it at incubator, and bring it up to date, another request can be made to bring out of incubator again. (talk) 14:00, 9 January 2016 (UTC)
Also, the specific procedure for a new language of a sister project is at Meta:Language proposal policy. I'm not exactly sure how it's different if the language project used to be open and was closed; usually, the old project doesn't exist and if someone goes there they are redirected to the incubator. Perhaps you could ask a member of the language committee for advice, such as User:MF-Warburg. --Pi zero (talk) 12:59, 9 January 2016 (UTC)

why most news here about sport?, where is another news? --FPP (talk) 17:41, 7 February 2016 (UTC)

@FPP: Just recently, the articles submitted to us have been mostly sports articles. We review for publication what our writers choose to submit. --Pi zero (talk) 17:53, 7 February 2016 (UTC)
Hey there! Your question is absolutely correct and having sports news in a greater number is not correct, but it is because of me. I am a football fan and write about football. Being a tennis lover as well, I tried to cover some of the Aus Open events. I do write other news, but not regularly. I wrote about Alan Rickman dies at 69 due to cancer. After all, since anyone can contribute here, one chooses something of his or her own interest.
