Original reporting[edit]

The interview was done via Internet Relay Chat today. I chatted with Tyler for about 35 minutes on the Snoonet IRC network. Kudu ~I/O~ 21:04, 1 July 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Here is the full email conversation prior to the interview:
Note: I have removed the correspondence from this page on author request, after sending it to scoop for the records. Gryllida 22:22, 31 August 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]

In principle, it might make sense to send correspondense to scoop and retain it private. Granted you asked for permission to copy-paste emails this one time, see Protection of sources, the reason scoop exists. Gryllida 17:49, 2 July 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]

In this case, since all the information in the email is also available in the article or on their website, I didn't think it was necessary to keep it private. Kudu ~I/O~ 18:35, 2 July 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Also note that the IRC logs have been sent to scoop. Kudu ~I/O~ 18:39, 2 July 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Review of revision 1940095 [Not ready][edit]

Thanks for the review. I think I've addressed all the issues that you mentioned. The main element that makes this interview newsworthy is the upcoming July 4th protests. Kudu ~I/O~ 23:17, 1 July 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Yes, I had the same concerns as Pi Zero when I looked at this article: "How is this organization noteworthy at all?", and "How do we have any proof that this was the organization?". I think they were both addressed. Great work. Surfer43 (talk) 23:59, 1 July 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I've added more OR notes and an additional source. Kudu ~I/O~ 00:12, 2 July 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]
If nobody else reviews this in the meantime, there's no way I'd get to this for a full review till at least tomorrow morning local (at least ten hours from now), since I'm tied up this evening with the update to the Morsi article. --Pi zero (talk) 00:42, 2 July 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Review of revision 1941890 [Passed][edit]

Thanks a lot for the review! I'll keep your comments in mind. Kudu ~I/O~ 19:17, 3 July 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]
