Well, here are some reasons:
- The use of a username of your choice.
- Greater security and privacy, your IP address will be hidden from most users.
- You get your own personal user page and talk page, instead of having to share it.
- Your contributions will be recognized as your own, and not confused with anyone elses.
- The use of your own Watchlist which shows when pages you are interested in have changed.
- You have the chance of creating articles with an account and get credit for your work.
- First-hand journalism that will be shown on our main page so everyone can read your work and comment on it.
- You can talk and collaborate with other editors just like you.
- Creating an account is easy and only takes a few minutes of your time.
We hope that you choose to become a Wikinewsie and create an account.
Feel free to ask any questions on my talk page or in the Welcommittee.
Be sure to sign your posts and comments on talk pages with four tildes (~~~~), this will let other editors know you said it.
