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!--Cspurrier - (talk) 01:48, 13 March 2008 (UTC)

Cassini article[edit]

hi Electricmic, Welcome to Wikinews! the Cassini article has come along well and i look forward to more such reports from you.

to answer your questions,

  • it's entirely appropriate to remove tags after fixing the issues raised.
  • adding a publish tag moves the article to the main page, no administrator action is needed. so a little caution and a final check is a good idea :)
  • the disputed categories will disappear when you remove the dispute tags[1].
  • for a story to end up on the main page, it needs to have a recent publish date, have the publish tag and not have any dispute tags. incidentally, i've "bumped" the date of the Cassini article from 12th to today - the day it was actually published. that's the way it's supposed to be done.

hope that answers your doubts. feel free to ask for help on my talk page or at the Water cooler. finally, as with Wikipedia, be bold in writing and publishing articles, any mistakes can be easily fixed. and once again, welcome! –Doldrums(talk) 07:14, 15 March 2008 (UTC)

Constitutionality of DNC Florida primary to be decided in appeal[edit]

I notice that you are using sources from March 17 or earlier. Since there are many developments since the 17th, I suggest that you include them. You can see here for some of the stories: Florida news but there are many more out there. --SVTCobra 01:14, 20 March 2008 (UTC)
