Much ado about accreditation[edit]

I'm getting a lot of grief, here, because somebody who's never contributed to en.wn requested accreditation and I tried, inarticulately perhaps (judging by the response), to suggest they should do some contribution to Wikinews first. We've now got two other non-Wikinewsies involved, on the request page, and the accreditation page's talk page, and the policy water cooler. I'd appreciate input from you, maybe at the policy water cooler and the request page (I tried to divert discussion from the third place to those two). --Pi zero (talk) 15:26, 26 May 2015 (UTC)

@Pi zero: no grief no stress no problem! I am only considering options and learning about the precedent here.
I would be happy to talk with either of you either on Wikinews or, if it saves time and trouble, by phone or Skype if you email me. I do not want to disrupt any process on Wikinews and wish to go forward acting in accord with Wikinews community precedent, whatever that is. Thanks. Blue Rasberry (talk) 18:08, 26 May 2015 (UTC)

I saw that you uploaded Commons:Category:Nordoff-Robbins_gig,_March_25th_2015. I happen to work a bit with the counselors in New York City who teach Nordoff-Robbins and other forms of music therapy.

Do you know anyone in the field of practicing Nordoff-Robbins, or did you just happen to be at this event? I would be interested in meeting someone who might be able to give comments on some articles relating to music therapy on Wikipedia. Thanks. Blue Rasberry (talk) 16:56, 8 June 2015 (UTC)

Brian, could do with a Edinburgh world heritage page, that links from the Edinburgh wiki page. Listing is "Edinburgh's Old Town and New Town together are listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site,[11] which have been managed by Edinburgh World Heritage Trust since 1999"
