Note if you actually attended game, you could also tag with {{Original reporting}}. Bawolff 11:10, 22 December 2008 (UTC)
For the image, I may just be overly-suspicious. I noticed it does not have any meta-data, which is unusual for an image taken directly by a user (or just in general). Are you sure you took it yourself? Bawolff 11:18, 22 December 2008 (UTC)
My apologies, I think i was just being overly suspicious on the image, please ignore any of my ranting on the image. I shouldn't be suspicious of such things without reason. Sorry. Bawolff 23:55, 22 December 2008 (UTC)
hope the edits are sufficient....still coming to terms with the whole wikinews process

Allstars, All Stars, or All-Stars[edit]

Which is it? Two ways in the article and another online.

Also Singapore is misspelled at least once in the body of the text.

This needs work. —Calebrw (talk) 04:33, 24 December 2008 (UTC)

Doing a little looking arround - this somewhat-official looking poster seems to indicate its spelt with a hypen - http://www.singaporeslingers.com/beta/wp-content/plugins/nextgen-gallery/nggshow.php?pid=37&width=400&height=566&mode=watermark Bawolff 04:53, 24 December 2008 (UTC)

Further issues[edit]

On a completely separate note, is there anything in the this article to wikilink? Also, the title needs to be changed to "*Sport*", where *Sport* is something like South Asian Basketball League or something. The article says something about the Challenger series, so the title needs that, I'll let you know if I find more issues. —Calebrw (talk) 04:44, 24 December 2008 (UTC)

PS: Use [[w:Article name on wikipedia|Link Text]] to link to Wikipedia. Example [[Barack Obama]] links to Obama's Wikinews page will [[w:Barack Obama|Barack Obama]] links to his Wikipedia page.

Hope this helps. —Calebrw (talk) 04:44, 24 December 2008 (UTC)

from what i gather (mostly from here) They are not playing in a leauge, but are playing against other random teams in the Singapore Challenge Series. Bawolff 06:11, 24 December 2008 (UTC)

Peer review 2[edit]

Ok, the spelling issues have been fixed, and the article has been wikified. Are there any other outstanding issues before a slap {{review}} back on this? Bawolff 05:43, 24 December 2008 (UTC)
Other note, linked article seems to indicate more than 1000 fans, but the linked article also has an official report on the page that says 1000 (they contradict themselves in there own article). So i think we should go with what Bjornengelhardt says since he was actually there. Bawolff 06:19, 24 December 2008 (UTC)
