Review of revision 1109975 [Passed][edit]

route?[edit]

I'm slighlty confused as in to the meaning of route as used in this article. It strikes me as probably an Amerikanism; can we have a wikt or WP link (or explanation in brackets) at the first mention? Otherwise, good job as always. Blood Red Sandman (Talk) (Contribs) 11:00, 9 October 2010 (UTC)

It is in quotes, as a direct quoted statement, but it is Scientology jargon. It is explained in the article by Tony Ortega, not sure if necessary to add an explanatory sentence about it here. And, thank you for the kind words about the article! ;) -- Cirt (talk) 11:02, 9 October 2010 (UTC)
Done, added. -- Cirt (talk) 11:04, 9 October 2010 (UTC)
Perfect, thanks! Blood Red Sandman (Talk) (Contribs) 11:20, 9 October 2010 (UTC)
No worries, -- Cirt (talk) 11:20, 9 October 2010 (UTC)

use of Related news[edit]

As-always, an interesting read, and detailed coverage. But, since related news is, essentially, for 'sourcing from ourselves', are all those articles under related news used to that end? It does seem a lot. --Brian McNeil / talk 02:20, 16 October 2010 (UTC)

Yeah, I tried to keep it tight to those that are directly relevant - namely, interviews with authors about similar accounts of retaliation after leaving the organization, etc. -- Cirt (talk) 02:34, 16 October 2010 (UTC)
Ah, here is what I was looking for, from Wikinews:Style guide, specifically: "Related news section - Events may produce a variety of articles on Wikinews with different angles or cover different aspects of the events or current events may benefit from being directed to a past story or two on a similar topic. Articles with a strong regional or topical focus may be related to many other articles on Wikinews as well. A useful tool for news readers is to include a selection of recent Wikinews articles related to the event, region, or topic of your article." Cheers, -- Cirt (talk) 02:43, 16 October 2010 (UTC)
