  • I have been involved here for just over 10 years. I have learned many things here and have deeply appreciated many of the people involved in the project. In recent months, things have taken a bit of an odd pivot and I just am unsure about my future interest in this project. With the passing of the brilliant, patient and capable Pi Zero (preceded by the death of the long-absent Brian McNeil).....I'm just not sure if I have it in me anymore. I am going to linger for a while, but by the end of 2021, I will have made up my mind. If you have questions/comments/thoughts about this, feel free to leave them at my Talk page. --Bddpaux (talk) 17:54, 5 March 2021 (UTC)

Absolutely free advice for any new writers here:

  • Within the first 3 sentences of any article you're writing, ask yourself, "Would a school teacher in Manila care about this? What about a waiter in Sydney or a young mother in Hong Kong?" The answer should be a quick 'Yes', or you might be wasting your time here: this is an international news site. Thusly, we serve a large audience.
  • I live by this rule about articles/submissions here: Get it, write it, submit it, move on. You'll be helping yourself if you adopt that motto too.
