Not shorts[edit]

Many of these articles meet the three-paragraph minimum. Why are you compiling them into a Shorts article? Benny the mascot (talk) 04:43, 4 August 2010 (UTC)

I agree Benny, the Kenyan vote and the Connecticut beer man are long enough (just) to be stand alone articles). The other two could be combined to make a shorts article. --InfantGorilla (talk) 04:45, 4 August 2010 (UTC)
I think they should all be shorts articles compiled into one Wikinews shorts. As stand-alone articles, they would be on the small side and plus since no Wikinews shorts have been made since February, I would like to get shorts started again.

  • I know from bitter experience on both sides of the fence, that shorts can take longer to review (reviewer has to read at least 8 sources on diverse topics)
  • You can still have published shorts with just the two articles. Anyway, Fetchcomms already posted a stub for Nine dead in shooting rampage at Connecticut beer warehouse, so I moved your text there.
  • I like shorts too - three cheers for reviving them.
