Original reporting

Since our last edition, many articles have claimed original reporting. Here are the most recent:

Several others wrote stories based on television sources. The Wikinews Reports blog activity was mostly related to some of these stories. You can ask any of the blog authors if you want to help out on the blog.

Editor's note

In the last few months activity on Wikinews has continued to decrease to an incredibly low level. There are hardly any new contributers joining and one of our best users, DragonFire1024 (talk · contribs) has gone on Wikibreak. However, some excellent articles are continuing to be written.

Inactivity[edit]

Sorry about my inactiveness.

I'm very busy with other things atm, but will try to get back to WikiNews soon. ńăŧħăń - ŧĕẍŧ 08:12, 18 May 2008 (UTC)

apologies re the sig --MarkTalk to me 10:45, 18 May 2008 (UTC)

Template:Welcome[edit]

Hi Anon. Is it not a bit risky leaving this even semi-protected? If a vandal made a change which went unnoticed before too long the offending material could be on dozens of new user's talk pages before anyone noticed. I think the risk of a vandal leaving a friendly remark for our new users is too high. I'd suggest you might wish to reconsider the protection level appropriate. Regards. Adambro (talk) 15:45, 18 May 2008 (UTC)

anon site notice[edit]

You removed the contest in the anon site notice because newbies probably wouldn't care about a contest. While that may seem like the case, I'm not sure its true, as in previous contests we've had people join just for the contest (perhaps because of the cash prize). Bawolff 00:20, 19 May 2008 (UTC)

Yes, that is why I removed it. If you haven't already, feel free to revert my edits. Anonymous101 :) 14:48, 19 May 2008 (UTC)

Thank you…[edit]

… for copy editing the article Abel prize 2008 awarded to John G. Thompson and Jacques Tits. --Angela H. (talk) 18:19, 20 May 2008 (UTC)

And welcome to the German wikinews. ;-) --Angela H. (talk) 18:51, 20 May 2008 (UTC)

Ich kann Dich (oder Sie?) übrigens sehr gut verstehen. Der Satz hier ist übrigens absolut fehlerfrei. :-) Viele Grüße --Angela H. (talk) 18:57, 20 May 2008 (UTC)

Also, there is a question on the article's talk page. --Angela H. (talk) 20:48, 20 May 2008 (UTC)

Undoing my admin action[edit]

I indef blocked this user, which appears to be a single-purpose disruptive account that has already been indefinitely blocked at Wikipedia at w:User talk:Sonicthehedgehog9000, after consultation beforehand with DragonFire1024 (talk · contribs) who agreed with the decision to indef block. I realize you got some opinions at WN:AAA, but I wish you would have waited to discuss this with me before undoing my admin action and reducing the block on Sonicthehedgehog9000 (talk · contribs). I think this is the second time that you have undone an admin action of mine without waiting to get ahold of me and discuss it with me first - maybe I would have agreed with you and undone my own action myself - or even convinced you of my reasoning. Of course I respect your actions and won't undo it, but myself and DragonFire1024 (talk · contribs) discussed this and agreed that this is a disruption-only account that crossed over from one project to another, virtually all of his contribs are inappropriate and do not contribute positively to this project, and is extremely unlikely to contribute positively in any way in the future. I also see no need for you to write "NOTE TO ADMINS. I STRONGLY OPPOSE THIS BLOCK" in all CAPS, on the user's talk page. Cirt (talk) 18:34, 21 May 2008 (UTC)

Apologies for undoing the admin action without consulting you. I changed it based on the comments of two other users. The reason I reverted without consulting you is because you were not editing at the time annd I considered it unfair on the user, who may have been trying to become a constructive user. i added "NOTE TO ADMINS. I STRONGLY OPPOSE THIS BLOCK" to the talk page for the same reason. This was before I reverted the block and I did not want to revert without giving other users a chance to discuss the issue first. After two users had supported the reduction I decided to revert it. I know it maybe easier to block possible SPAs but we need more ocntributers and I think it is better to assume good faith and encourage users, especially as it seemed that this user had requested help. As I said on the message on AAA, i have no problem with anyone reverting it if they disagree. If you choose to re expand the block I will fully respect your decision and not make anymore reverts on the matter. Anonymous101 :) 18:53, 21 May 2008 (UTC)
I will most definitely not revert your action. I acknowledge that you saw I was not active at that particular time - but I also saw that you did not unblock the user entirely but instead reblocked for 19 hours. Could you not have instead just waited those 19 hours to attempt to get in touch with me? It is quite likely at that point that I would have just undone my own block myself if you and I could have discussed the matter, first. I am sorry but I feel that you could have handled this more appropriately, especially without the "NOTE TO ADMINS. I STRONGLY OPPOSE THIS BLOCK" on the talk page. Cirt (talk) 19:39, 21 May 2008 (UTC)
I didn't want to discourage the user from contributing helpfully to the project by making them think they are blocked for ever. As you may have noticed, I removed the "NOTE TO ADMINS. I STRONGLY OPPOSE THIS BLOCK" soon after you first raised an issue on my talk page as I accept that was a mistake Anonymous101 :) 19:40, 21 May 2008 (UTC)
Thank you for removing your all CAPS comment. Do you still oppose the block at all? If so I will undo the 19 hours block myself. Cirt (talk) 19:49, 21 May 2008 (UTC)
I oppose the block but I have seen on AAA and this page that other users are against removing the block. As a result, I think it might be better to keep the block but I will have no problems if you unblock. Thanks for your above comments, I will take them into account when reverting things in the future. Anonymous101 :) 19:53, 21 May 2008 (UTC)

Okay well next time instead of undoing my admin actions I would appreciate it if you waited the 19 hours or whatever to try to get in touch with me first. This could all have been avoided by us discussing this first, and then I would have been able to possibly undo my own action. Cirt (talk) 20:01, 21 May 2008 (UTC)

OK, next time I will leave a note on your talk page instead of reverting without giving you a chance to respond. Anonymous101 :) 20:04, 21 May 2008 (UTC)
Thank you, it is just that this is the second time I have asked you to do that. Cirt (talk)

FYI, our previous discussion had been about your restoration of copyvio Record 2007 Texas Personal Injury Verdict, although I think at that point you had said in IRC and not on wiki that you would contact me first and try to get my input before undoing an admin action. Cirt (talk) 20:11, 21 May 2008 (UTC)

I think that discussion was diferent as it was aout an article not a user but I still apoligise as I should have learnt from that. Anonymous101 :) 20:12, 21 May 2008 (UTC)

Thank you[edit]

Thank you for being so civil and kind and polite and patient with me in all of my discussions about various things with you. I really respect those qualities, especially being able to hold true to that on wiki, which is not an easy thing to do, and also is quite rare. Thanks, Cirt (talk) 20:15, 21 May 2008 (UTC)

question[edit]

would you like to join the Writing contest anonymous101? —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Sonicthehedgehog9000 (talkcontribs)

I am not joining the writing contest as I think my edits made to Wikinews should be entirely unpaid (and some people get money from the contest). Anonymous101 :) 14:52, 23 May 2008 (UTC)

ok. oh btw it started. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Sonicthehedgehog9000 (talkcontribs) 00:26, 26 May 2008 (UTC)

Dinosaur tracks found on Arabian Peninsula[edit]

No worries, nice piece. Cirt (talk) 17:20, 23 May 2008 (UTC)

Ya beat me to it this time[edit]

Nice work at Authorities contacted after school death threat made on Wikipedia. Will be interesting if/how this gets covered in secondary sources. Cirt (talk) 01:45, 25 May 2008 (UTC)

Image:First live advert in UK shown on British TV.png[edit]

Thanks for taking the time to provide a clear and appropriate fair use rationale for this image. Adambro (talk) 20:29, 29 May 2008 (UTC)

Roundbox[edit]

I can easily change it to be square like Ambox/Imbox instead of rounded. ViperSnake151 (talk) 20:22, 30 May 2008 (UTC)

OR[edit]

How do I do that? This is basically put together from a bunch of articles that don't really touch on this directly. Kingjeff (talk) 19:03, 31 May 2008 (UTC)

Ok. I added a little note. Other then that, does the article meet Wikinews standards? Kingjeff (talk) 19:17, 31 May 2008 (UTC)

The OR is more or less the entire article. Kingjeff (talk) 19:18, 31 May 2008 (UTC)

Merge of Photographs Published of Isolated Native Tribe in Brazil[edit]

Hi! Thanks for helping with the merge. There were a few revisions on Photographs Published of Isolated Native Tribe in Brazil which should be kept (some cleanup work), so the merge isn't complete (you will need to restore those revisions). Also, I am not able to move Uncontacted Indian tribe discovered, so unfortunately you will have do that too :P. Thanks! B2xiao (talk) 21:24, 31 May 2008 (UTC)

Wikinews logo on Main Page[edit]

I've been thinking for a while about putting the Wikinews logo on the main page instead of the "Welcome to Wikinews" text thing that's on there now. Look at this and tell me what you think. Thunderhead 07:16, 1 June 2008 (UTC)

old template is better?[edit]

Pretty much the only difference is that it switches to the image box style on image pages. It doesn't make sense to have ambox showing up in imagespace. ViperSnake151 (talk) 13:40, 1 June 2008 (UTC)

Image:AntiWarrallyPortland2006.jpg, Image:AntiWarrally2Portland2006.jpg, Image:Perth IRAQ No War rally2006.jpg DR[edit]

You closed this discussion but did nothing beyond that. Currently the images are tagged with a license for which there is no evidence. Do you think there is an alternative license which you should have changed this to if these are going to be kept? Adambro (talk) 17:20, 1 June 2008 (UTC)

Thanks for noticing. I have corrected the license template and removed the dr template. Apologies for not doing tat earlier. Anonymous101 :) 19:32, 1 June 2008 (UTC)

My prepared story[edit]

Yes. It'll be on a current event. Kingjeff (talk) 18:46, 2 June 2008 (UTC)

I know the 1 source I have so far is outdated by it's self. But I am going to be adding more up-to-date sources showing the current event. Kingjeff (talk) 18:50, 2 June 2008 (UTC)
Also, this article might take a while since this is an original report article and by the looks of things, I might need to somehow upload notes somehow. Kingjeff (talk) 18:53, 2 June 2008 (UTC)

Reply template[edit]

I tried to remove this template from your talk page, but it resulted in me blanking the template. I am confused. I reverted myself, naturally, but don't understand how that happened. Then I tried to add a comment, but that, too went to the template (I stopped this time at 'preview'). Do you have any idea what is going on? --SVTCobra 00:56, 3 June 2008 (UTC)

But the real reason I wanted to chat was to remind you to remove {{unblock}} when you have reviewed such a request, otherwise it is still there for other admins. Cheers. --SVTCobra 00:56, 3 June 2008 (UTC)

re[edit]

Mundine beats Green in super-middleweight WBA eliminator[edit]

Per your request, I reviewed. I would say that it was perfectly acceptable. I made some of the edits that I would have made. But I have been told, I pay too much attention to detail. If you find it helpful you can look at what I did. Cheers, --SVTCobra 21:29, 5 June 2008 (UTC)

Question about my other article attempts[edit]

feel free to delete any of them due to minimal information as dragon fire and others have tagged my articles with a minimal tag otherwise it would be nice to see these articles made into shorts or expanded into full articles which i'am optimistic about but anyway thanks. --72.73.74.205 15:34, 6 June 2008 (UTC)

missing letter or letters on summarys[edit]

hey anon101 i just have noticed that sometimes you go so fast you miss a letter or letters or a misspelling in your summmary breifs hey thats find and dandy i dont mind as long as it works just wanted to point this out i make tons of mistakes so no pun intended. --72.73.74.205 10:18, 7 June 2008 (UTC)

Yes, my edit summaries nearly always have typos. Anonymous101 :) 10:20, 7 June 2008 (UTC)

RE: Obama[edit]

Did they flat out refuse to interview us? Thunderhead 23:31, 7 June 2008 (UTC)

Thanks for the c/eing[edit]

just wanted to say thanks. good to see you again anon101 its a brand new day of news. --72.73.74.205 09:03, 8 June 2008 (UTC)

i know its not much but it is world news so thanks again for the pub. --72.73.74.205 16:16, 9 June 2008 (UTC)

Change of my username[edit]

Hello, are you bureacruat? I'm asking because I'd like change my username to "Prasuk historyk", because this username is using by me in the other wikimedia projects. Prasuk (talk) 19:05, 9 June 2008 (UTC)

A list of bureaucrats can be found here. Brianmc is probably the best person to talk to. Regards. Adambro (talk) 19:22, 9 June 2008 (UTC)
Wikinews:Changing username is the proper place to go. We archive these requests. --SVTCobra 19:25, 9 June 2008 (UTC)

deleting images[edit]

Hi A101, when deleting local images that are found on commons, but with a different name, please replace all instances of the old local name with the image name as used on commons. I fixed for Image:458px-quiz hurricane 3 sept 2007 1830Z.jpg, but if there are others ... Cheers, --SVTCobra 21:35, 10 June 2008 (UTC)

Opps, sorry if I didn't make it clear that the image on Commons was under a different name when I nominated this and any other images recently. Recent changes in the MediaWiki software make it easier to find duplicated images which I noticed was the case here but failed to notice it was a different name. Adambro (talk) 21:39, 10 June 2008 (UTC)
You did, Adambro. That's how I could find it so quickly. Cheers, --SVTCobra 21:42, 10 June 2008 (UTC) —Preceding unsigned comment added by 195.188.51.11 (talk)

Thanks for the ArbCom nom. I am honored with your kind words and support. Cirt (talk) 21:12, 30 June 2008 (UTC)

No. Have you followed my Top Model interviews? I never ended up passing all the questions to the final draft. Mike Halterman (talk) 20:44, 2 July 2008 (UTC)

ArbCom[edit]

I noticed this comment. Are you sure you don't want to be considered in the 2008 ArbCom elections? I think you would make a good Arbitrator. Cirt (talk) 22:02, 4 July 2008 (UTC)

Yes I am sure but thanks for your above comments Anonymous101 (talk) 10:56, 6 July 2008 (UTC)


A famous/infamous book[edit]

Hello this is a book available at amazon. I am a fan of Vince Bugliosi and his writings and I would like to use the username

   * ProsecutionOfGWBushForMurder  —Preceding unsigned comment added by 83.134.75.215 (talk) 15:31, 9 July 2008 (UTC) 
I would have to agree with Anonymous101 that this username is inappropriate. Whilst are our username policy isn't too specific, I think it would be reasonable to suggest that this username could be seen as offensive by some or to be pushing a point of view which could call into question your ability to maintain a neutral point of view as is required when editing Wikinews. Adambro (talk) 15:39, 9 July 2008 (UTC)

Thanks for the explanation - This new username should not be offensive then --Bugliosi Fan (talk) 15:44, 9 July 2008 (UTC)


Monobook[edit]

That code will only link to the stats for June 08, due to the fact that the month is specified in the url Anonymous101 (talk) 20:26, 13 July 2008 (UTC)

How do I fix that? Cirt (talk) 20:34, 13 July 2008 (UTC)
I'm not currently sure. I'll have a look and see if there is anything that can be done. Anonymous101 (talk) 20:35, 13 July 2008 (UTC)
Okay, thank you! Cirt (talk) 20:36, 13 July 2008 (UTC)
I fixed teh code on the water cooler. However Henrik's server had issues with recent stuff (ran out of disk space i believe), which isn't going to be fixed until after he gets back. So the link to this month goes nowhere for now. Bawolff 21:10, 13 July 2008 (UTC)

Re: Barnstar[edit]

Thanks alot once again. I really must stick those awards on my user page sometime. Perhaps after adding sources to the article I'm on now and publishing it. Blood Red Sandman (Talk) (Contribs) 20:41, 16 July 2008 (UTC)

Do you have time to review MUFON releases report on UFO sighting in Stephenville, Texas? It has been tagged as 'ready' for almost 17 hours now. Thanks, --SVTCobra 16:52, 18 July 2008 (UTC)

Done I removed some bias, copyedited, removed the sections which make it look like a Wikipedia article, added related news and published. I hope it is OK now. Thanks for the message. Anonymous101 (talk) 17:03, 18 July 2008 (UTC)

I had to remove your vote because I clearly put that votes will not be accepted until 11:00 UTC. Please wait...14 more minutes and try again. ;) Mike Halterman (talk) 10:46, 19 July 2008 (UTC)

User:Concerned-mom userpage deletion[edit]

I saw you deleted the userpage for Concerned-mom (talk · contribs) as "Advertising or spam: seems like its tryinh to promote somethin". I am curious, how is that page different from Churchofscientologyint (talk · contribs) ? Cirt (talk) 16:16, 20 July 2008 (UTC)

User:Concerned-mom seemed to be saying the benefits of their product and trying to promote it, while User:Churchofscientologyint was just listing contact details. As a result, I believe that User:Concerned-mom should be deleted. If you disagree with my deletion please feel free to restore the page. Anonymous101 (talk) 16:19, 20 July 2008 (UTC)
In that case would it not have been better to at least first try to raise the issue with Concerned-mom (talk · contribs) on her talk page - or at the least to just remove the promotional info from the userpage and keep the contact info - instead of deleting the entire userpage? Cirt (talk) 16:28, 20 July 2008 (UTC)
I don't think raising it on the talk page would be helpful as I doubt the user is going to return. However, I could have just removed the promotional info. I will restore the page without the promotional info now. Anonymous101 (talk) 16:30, 20 July 2008 (UTC)

As you will note from recent changes I was in the process of looking for additional sources and reading them for items to add to the article.

Microsoft/six degrees of separation[edit]

Take a look if you'd like. Not quite ready yet, but a good start. Microsoft study proves six degrees of separation. —Calebrw (talk) 02:14, 5 August 2008 (UTC)

Thanks for looking at it. It's ready now. I didn't have anymore time to work on it last night, but I was hoping you would. —Calebrw (talk) 13:34, 5 August 2008 (UTC)
I don't think it need expansion, so much as a copyedit, which you did and I was unable to do. —Calebrw (talk) 13:37, 5 August 2008 (UTC)

What to do with these articles?[edit]

I moved them to today's briefs as they weren't going to get bigger and I didn't want to add to them personally.

Should they be deleted or soft redirected? —Calebrw (talk) 14:15, 5 August 2008 (UTC)

What's Up?[edit]

What is up with the whole sighted thing? The Mind's Eye (talk) 20:12, 5 August 2008 (UTC)

Basically, it's a new way of reviewing articles. Before any edit made by a user who is not in the user group "editor" will have to have there edit's approved by a user who is an "editor" before they are shown to the average reader of Wikinews. Anonymous101talk 20:14, 5 August 2008 (UTC)
So who qualifies as editors? The Mind's Eye (talk) 20:16, 5 August 2008 (UTC)
User's who have been approved by sysops. (At the moment only sysops seem to be getting that ability, but once there's a policy on it other users can be approved - once that policy has been written I'll see if the policy allows me to approve you) Anonymous101talk 20:18, 5 August 2008 (UTC)
Is there a general location for discussion on it? I would love to participate. The Mind's Eye (talk) 20:25, 5 August 2008 (UTC)
Discussion on this is taking place at Wikinews:Water_cooler/technical#FlaggedRevs Anonymous101talk 20:27, 5 August 2008 (UTC)

Hey there ... an edit of mine just got 'sighted' by me automatically ... does that mean I've been added to the 'editors' list? And ... is there an official editors list out there, or how do you check who's an editor? Sorry if this info is out there, couldn't find it ... Thanks! Wikidsoup (talk) 18:39, 6 August 2008 (UTC)

South Ossetia[edit]

Sorry if I might have got in your way :/ (edit conflicts). Yes, I'm looking at the article. I was planning on adding some more stuff, but I guess its more appropriate to review and publish first, so I'll do that. Regards Sean Heron (talk) 11:21, 8 August 2008 (UTC)

Governments 'concerned' by situation in Ossetia[edit]

Sure, I'll happily review the article as soon as I complete my British Airways story. May I ask you to do a trade, and review Train hits collapsed bridge in Czech Republic, killing ten‎, please? Blood Red Sandman (Talk) (Contribs) 16:24, 8 August 2008 (UTC)

Never mind, you seem to have logged out. Someone else did it, anyway, and I checked your article for you. Blood Red Sandman (Talk) (Contribs) 16:55, 8 August 2008 (UTC)
It's quite OK! You could check Four British Airways executives charged with price fixing‎ instead if you're staying this time, though, that would be appreciated. Blood Red Sandman (Talk) (Contribs) 17:34, 8 August 2008 (UTC)

Olympic highlights: August 9, 2008[edit]

The highlights look great! Do you intend for one to be created at the end of each day, with a quick summary of each event and an overview of medals? If so, should be great, a nice addition to specific articles if any major events happen. I was wondering how we could cover the regular events, since they probably didn't deserve their own articles, but this looks like the best way. I'm watching the events live so i'll be happy to add some information when you're done. TheFearow (userpage) 09:13, 9 August 2008 (UTC)

Georgia wants ceasefire in Ossetia war[edit]

I'm sorry, why you called my edit "bias"? --Yuriybrisk (talk) 21:56, 9 August 2008 (UTC)

I called it bias as it seemed to be promoting the Ossetian viewpoint and it had opinions in it. I removed it after a discussion regarding the edit with other users on IRC who agreed that it did not follow NPOV. I am sorry if I was mistaken and please feel free to re-add it if you disagree (I will not remove it again). Thanks, Anonymous101talk 22:05, 9 August 2008 (UTC)
I explained my edit at the comments page here. For now, the article clearly promotes the Georgian viewpoint, which is also bad. Sorry, I'm not a user of IRC, so I can't ask a direct question (if there's a Georgian POV prevailing) there.
P.S.: In a state of an informational war it's difficult to trust the sources on either sides - that's why we just should provide both. If you wouldn't mind I'll try to re-phrase that controversial edit.
Oh, sorry, I've just noticed that Sean Heron done well with the article - it's NPOV is much better now. --Yuriybrisk (talk) 23:41, 9 August 2008 (UTC)

I tried to edit it 2 days ago. I'm confused about the process and also, please tell me how this wiki got to the point where new editers' edits must be reviewed. Wishmaster68 (talk) 14:19, 16 August 2008 (UTC)

You say "Firstly, here are the reasons we have to review edits
   * To stop vandalism
   * To allow for facts to be verified."

1: Why is that necessary here and not at Wikipedia? 2: Who decided (and by what method was the decision made) that this systemic review process is advisable? Wishmaster68 (talk) 18:39, 16 August 2008 (UTC)
