You're welcome![edit]

On Wikinews, we don't use the <ref> tags, we just list the sources used at the bottom using the {{source}} template. Other than that and some minor cleanup, it is a very nice article. Welcome to Wikinews! —Zachary talk 02:46, 8 April 2007 (UTC)

Looks good. Go ahead and publish. —Zachary talk 03:22, 8 April 2007 (UTC)
You don't have a boilerplate, it has some useful links - but I did just put your article up as lead. --Brian McNeil / talk 08:59, 8 April 2007 (UTC)

Welcome[edit]

Ajindustries, welcome to Wikinews! I hope you like the place and decide to stay. Here are a few good links for newcomers:

Our key policies - if you read anything, read these!

Here a few pointers to help you get to know Wikinews:

There are always things to do on Wikinews:

By the way, you can sign your name on Talk pages using four tildes (~~~~), which produces your name and the current date. If you have any questions, you can ask them at the water cooler or to anyone on the Welcommittee, or ask me on my Talk page. Again, welcome! --Brian McNeil / talk 08:59, 8 April 2007 (UTC)

Captain of sunken cruise ship charged[edit]

There were a few issues with this story being too close to the guardian one, can you check out the talk and for future reference try to have read 2 sources before you start - it makes it easier to do the story in your own words. --Brian McNeil / talk 08:34, 9 April 2007 (UTC)

Other Quote Templates[edit]

Cquote1.svg This template should be used with text from a quotation that is in the body of the article and illustrates a main point from the story. Cquote2.svg

{{QuoteLeft|quote|4=attribution}}, also QuoteRight, same syntax. --Brian McNeil / talk 12:01, 9 April 2007 (UTC)

Anit-American rally . . .[edit]

before you spend too much energy, have you seen this Iraqis demonstrate on fourth anniversary of Baghdad's fall? Feel free to update that article, frankly it is is a little short. --SVTCobra 02:37, 10 April 2007 (UTC)

Story process[edit]

I saw Thunderhead answered you on my talk page, but when you start on a story you'd have the {{develop}} tag on it, when you're done you can change the tag to {{ready}} and wait for someone to look over it. If that doesn't happen in a reasonable amount of time you change it to {{publish}} and the story will appear on the front page.

For the leads on the front page, go to the Newsroom (see links down left). There you will see the leads repeated with a link to edit and update them. Please when doing that read the instructions carefully and preview before you save.

Now, your other question... Boilerplate is an expression to describe a standardised piece of text, for example the manufacturer's label that goes on a boiler. For example, hello is one of the boilerplate messages we use on Wikinews to welcome people. --Brian McNeil / talk 08:27, 10 April 2007 (UTC)
