  • At present this article is not very neutral. --SVTCobra 01:46, 1 June 2007 (UTC)
Fixed that 3rd paragraph. The 13th 4postle 03:00, 1 June 2007 (UTC)
  • Excessive use of "External links" --SVTCobra 02:57, 1 June 2007 (UTC)
How can you have excessive use of external links?The 13th 4postle 03:00, 1 June 2007 (UTC)
  • Zero use of categories. --SVTCobra 02:57, 1 June 2007 (UTC)
I havn't put them yet, I have been busy doing the above. The 13th 4postle 03:00, 1 June 2007 (UTC)
Then you shouldn't tag 'ready' if you are still in an early stage of development of the article.--SVTCobra 03:07, 1 June 2007 (UTC)
It's good enough to be publishedThe 13th 4postle 03:37, 1 June 2007 (UTC)
It certainly looks great visually. But why do you ask if it can be published? You already published! (are your trying to establish some sort of fake validation where it looks like you asked if it could be published before you did?) I am not commenting on the content as I have not read the sources. Is it neutral? It seems to favor the protesters. The use of External links does not seem in line with WN:SG. --SVTCobra 04:04, 1 June 2007 (UTC)
You're either willing to do the work that you mention or you're not, and if you're not, please don't talk as if you were the master of this article; slavery has been abolished by nearly every country last time I checked.
I am just trying to help you bring the article up to standards laid out in WN:SG. You're the one telling me to do work, so who's the slave-driver? --SVTCobra 00:35, 2 June 2007 (UTC)
So that's the word I was looking for...Thanks anyways and I'll see what I can do in regard to the article.

Please EDIT[edit]

In writing such a large piece late at night, it will be prone to mistakes grammar and spelling wise and if you see them please edit it out. I welcome any other edits as long as you keep the main idea of the sentence or paragraph intact. The is wikinews guys come on!! Let's work on stuff together.

Please substantiate image licenses[edit]

If you can build an association to person who created these images, with their permission you can use them. Or maybe they would let you use them anyway. -Edbrown05 07:38, 1 June 2007 (UTC)
Likely so, that they would let you use them would be the case. -Edbrown05 07:40, 1 June 2007 (UTC)
But I mean, you don't even credit these people who were there to take pictures of the event you are reporting on. Your name appears on this history of the article. Who took the shots of the event? -Edbrown05 07:47, 1 June 2007 (UTC)

What did you do ??[edit]

This article was ten times larger last night with links and everything. You have done nothing but slowly take apart the article and destroyed it.  !!! The 13th 4postle 11:54, 1 June 2007 (UTC)

Comment again[edit]

This is my opinion (please do not accuse me of acting like the "master of this artice"):

  1. This article's prose is sub-par. For example: "Most of the student protests have originated from universities who are not aligned with Chavez; he says that the students do not like the public universities that threaten and compete with the non-aligned schools." and is this a sentence?: "Cell phones to communicate and video from the phone is being broadcast on YouTube and other video sharing websites."
  2. The article does not come close to presenting Chavez's view, yet it purports to do so.
  3. The use of External Links, still does not comply with WN:SG.

Cheers, --SVTCobra 01:05, 2 June 2007 (UTC)

External Links[edit]

No one else has a problem with the external links I think it's good to have a video of protests and it lets people see as well as read what's going on. The 13th 4postle 00:02, 7 June 2007 (UTC)

If anything I can put it under sources if I really wanted too The 13th 4postle 00:05, 7 June 2007 (UTC)
