Image Description[edit]

I don't want to be so picky and a pest but the image's description just says the air force base really think it should be changed to something more accurate. 72.73.90.252 (talk) 12:27, 23 October 2009 (UTC)

Horizontal sidebar[edit]

Regarding [1]: Can we please return the vertical sidebar? I think the horizontal infobox looks bad on this article. I won't revert because i already undid this edit once before, and don't want to edit war, but i'd like some second opinions. Tempodivalse [talk] 18:08, 23 October 2009 (UTC)

The vertical sidebar is best for articles that don't have accompanying images; but with an image, it forces us to sacrifice professional standards and bump the image awkwardly to the left. If we have an image, it's better to use the horizontal sidebar. Sherurcij 18:21, 23 October 2009 (UTC)
What's wrong with having the image on the left side of the article? It's not a wide picture, so it doesn't squeeze the text or anything. Tempodivalse [talk] 18:34, 23 October 2009 (UTC)
News sites, unless they whore out to advertisers, use the top-right of an article for photographs; we should do the same. English style dictate that readers move their eyes from left to right over a story, and while they will automatically stop if a line truncates early on the right side, they should not have to search for the beginning of text by scanning from the left until they find words. *shrugs* Sherurcij 18:36, 23 October 2009 (UTC)
? How hard could it be to find the beginning of the next line when reading an article? I've never had any trouble with that, and it never bothered me or anything. Imho, any benefit with the horizontal infobox you describe is outweighed by (what I think, anyway) is its rather untidy/eyesore appearance at the bottom of the page. I think vertical sidebars make things look much more organised/tidy than do horizontal ones. Tempodivalse [talk] 18:53, 23 October 2009 (UTC)
Agree with Tempodivalse (talk · contribs). The predominant style on Wikinews is the vertical sidebar, not horizontal, and it works much better on articles. The image fits perfectly actually. Cirt (talk) 21:53, 23 October 2009 (UTC)

Bomber's body[edit]

I removed the bit saying the suicide bomber's body was blasted into pieces...that is true to all suicide bombings. Sherurcij 18:21, 23 October 2009 (UTC)
