Merge[edit]

Unfortunately it isn't possible to keep revisions it isn't required from a copyright standpoint anyway because attribution is to Wikinews. Once have edited for 4 days you will be able to move pages with the history clciking on a move tag at the top of the page. But once the article has been duplicated it is hard to move them so I couldn't move them at that point. The over article you asked to bbe moved ws moed with history however.

Publishing[edit]

When you work on articles that are disputed, or the likes, remember to change the date to the date of publish. Articles are generally listed on the date they get marked with {{publish}}. So if I cleanup and fix an article that was from May 27, and published it today (June 1), the article's date would be June 1. Good work BTW :-) DragonFire1024 (Talk to the Dragon) 21:25, 1 June 2008 (UTC)

{{haveyoursay}}[edit]

You don't have to stick the template on every article, there's always the comment tab at the top. Its use is to try and make people realise they can edit the site, as well as let the regulars let off steam when they find a totally outrageous story. --Brian McNeil / talk 21:39, 1 June 2008 (UTC)

WWI mass grave article[edit]

Thanks for getting the article up. Basically, for whatever reason, my brain was having trouble putting a decent article together from the sources. Normally if I can't write an article, I just ditch it, but I figured this was a big enough story that someone should do something on it. Nice to see it got into the leads, too.

Stanley Cup Game 5[edit]

Thanks for your edits on this article. After such a late night, I'll have to move on to other things for the evening - if you're still up, you can do any needed cleanups. Hopefully the story is generally in order. DL+1613 (talk) 05:13, 3 June 2008 (UTC)
