Template talk:Stale

From Wikinews, the free news source you can write!

Let's change the wording[edit]

  • WN:CG says "Ensure your reporting is timely and the story is at most a week old with sources in the last 2–3 days.", but
  • Template:Stale says "Wikinews does not publish reports on events that have happened three or more days ago."

These conflict. As the content guide is approved policy/guideleine, I suggest we reword the template to "Wikinews only publishes fresh stories." Several good stories today fell foul of the two day limit in the template, (as a result of very low levels of reviewer activity) even in at least one case the print sources would be just two days old.

Current practice seems to be a three day limit, (rarely a week) and I suggest we start a Water Cooler conversation aimed at eventually tightening the limits in WN:CG
