I don't give a crap about Ontario debate candidates. This should not take up five slots on the front page.

You may not, but other people might care. That's the joy of wikinews. Lyellin 04:20, 27 September 2007 (UTC)

I am not arguing that it is not news. I am arguing that it shouldn't be five slots of news. It's practically spam.

The issue is problematic, we should have this many stories from every country on a specific topic and too much news to go on the front page. We don't, so the mechanisms in place for stories mean that when one reporter submits a batch of stories they all show up at once. If we ever get up into the hundreds of regular contributors there will be a process implemented to maintain the entire front page - not just rely on DPLs. --Brian McNeil / talk 18:35, 27 September 2007 (UTC)
