Flooding recent changes

Are you going to be doing much more of this? If it's all very straightforward (nothing controversial in it), you might consider using the pseudo-bot flag. --Pi zero (talk) 15:22, 6 February 2011 (UTC)

Oh, yes, sorry, I forgot deletions appeared in RC. I'm almost done now, anyway, but I'll flag myself temporarily :-) Δενδοδγε t\c 15:24, 6 February 2011 (UTC)

Lepidopterology

Please verify that your beta toolbar bug is fixed. Additionally, please double-check that your watchlist-goes-to-a-different-page bug is still broken. Regards, — μ 16:11, 18 February 2011 (UTC)

It seems both are fixed now. I guess whatever was causing the other one is also fixed now. Δενδοδγε t\c 16:30, 18 February 2011 (UTC)

Review - urgent

My article, entitled 2011 BRIT Awards highlights, is said to go stale today at 2000 UTC, according to Diego Grez. Can you please review this article as soon as you can? I would be so disappointed if this article was tagged stale because nobody reviewed it. I've worked so hard on this article. Please review it if you can. Thanks --Rayboy8 (my talk) (my contributions) 16:34, 18 February 2011 (UTC)

Well, I didn't see the BRITs, and I recognise a whole three of the acts listed, but I'll take a look. Δενδοδγε t\c 16:36, 18 February 2011 (UTC)
Thank you for passing the review of my article. I really appreciate it! :) --Rayboy8 (my talk) (my contributions) 16:55, 18 February 2011 (UTC)

Explosion at earthquake-damaged Fukushima nuclear power plant

It seems that the sources for Explosion at earthquake-damaged Fukushima nuclear power plant have changed since I wrote the article. That is why there were unsourced statements. It seems to be a rapidly changing situation so this is hardly surprising. Thanks for removing unsourced statements - Cartman02au (Talk)(AU Portal) 22:16, 12 March 2011 (UTC)

Hey there,

Could you either list or upload the source image of the blue Japan Wikinews logo found to the left of File:Wikinews Japan earthquake.png? It's always useful to have this sort of thing around. Regards, — μ 02:13, 16 March 2011 (UTC)

Colours indicating bias

[1] Has anyone formally recognised the opposition as the legitimate government of Libya? Both the pre-Qadafi and current era's flags use green, to be fair, while only the opposition uses the black one, so it could be argued the status quo is biased the other way round. Just thinking. I don't know if I care enough to revert. Tempodivalse [talk] 15:54, 31 March 2011 (UTC)

France were the first to officially recognise the rebels, I'm not sure about other countries (I haven't been following it enough), but I'm sure France aren't alone. As for black, that is the colour we normally use, so I don't think we can be accused of bias—otherwise using any colour would always be biased against somebody. Besides, black has no special significance to the rebels, but green was a very special colour to the Gadaffi regime, and became something of a national symbol. DENDODGE 15:58, 31 March 2011 (UTC)
