I CREATED this Obama mania Wackynews, prefatory to the dire trials of the Obama Presidency. Like in Greek drama and comedy which I studied in 1973, there is deus ex machina, euphoria, wacky business, monkey business and dire Omen. Hope he passes through. Please help in publishing this.

Good stuff, should be interesting what the crew makes of it. And frankly, because I don't believe YOU, Florentino, are capable of publishing it, and the administrative staff here is capable of publishing it, that it will be published... —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 24.125.242.203 (talkcontribs) 10:40, 9 January 2009 (UTC)

... ooops I take that back now, since they are so interested in neatness, that neatness might now come to this news publication.

My my, such a fascination with neatness...

I almost puked when the supposed founder of wikinews (oh, whaz his name, Eric Moeller, or something like that), said "keep it neat". What?! You want news!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Wikinews is not Wikipedia.

No, it's not Wikipedia, we in fact actually have much higher standards than Wikipedia. -- Zanimum (talk) 16:33, 9 January 2009 (UTC)

I think those standards should be reduced. News... News travels how?

It travels by word of mouth. If this site won't allow people to speak, or report, then it will have only reporters who "speak" sourced-speak. That speak is not news.

We want street speak, I think. -24.125.242.203 12:33, 18 January 2009 (UTC)

Headline[edit]

I don't like the headline: it gives the impression that the comic will be published on Inauguration Day, and is endorsed by the transition team.

The reader has to read deep into the story to realize the comic is about Inauguration Day, but is published a week ahead, and that it is not a part of the official inauguration day celebrations.

I think you could make some tweaks to the headline and opening paragraphs to make it easier for the naive reader.

Major revision[edit]

I've done a major rewrite of this article, to get it closer to standards. -- Zanimum (talk) 16:31, 9 January 2009 (UTC)

Thanks for making my suggestions concrete. Though I think: "The issue is not official merchandise of the US Democratic Party, Obama campaign, the Obama-Biden Transition Project, or White House" is a little over the top, I can't think of a more low key way to express the independence of Marvel Comics. --InfantGorilla (talk) 18:26, 9 January 2009 (UTC)
