Melbourne Derby[edit]

thanks for the quick follow-up, Gnangarra. it's absolutely ok to remove tags urself after addressing the concerns raised in them. and it's nice to see articles on topics infrequently covered here on wikinews.  — Doldrums(talk) 08:02, 7 November 2006 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I other words, publish the story Gnangarra. -Edbrown05 08:13, 7 November 2006 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Perth fires[edit]

good work on the OR! do remember to take care while at it.  — Doldrums(talk) 15:41, 4 February 2007 (UTC)Reply[reply]


creating a new article is the better idea, particularly if there's enough material for atleast a short article. u can link to the old article in the new one by using the {{wikinews}} tag in a Related news section. if there isn't enough material to warrant a new article, u can add to today's Shorts - a compilation of brief reports for the day.

the idea is that Wikinews articles, once published, are historical documents reporting on what's known at the time of publication, and are left unchanged then on. a day (stretching to two) has been the "cutoff" period used.  — Doldrums(talk) 12:14, 5 February 2007 (UTC)Reply[reply]

RE: Horse flu[edit]

Thanks for your comments. Your article looks good also and covers the issue from another angle. I am not too sure that publishing needs to be held up but if more information comes out tonight it may be a good idea to add it. I can't think of anything to add at this stage - Cartman02au (Talk)(AU Portal) 06:25, 28 August 2007 (UTC)Reply[reply]

2011 Commonwealth heads of government meeting opens amid protests of war crimes[edit]

Hi. There are improvements called for by review of this article. See review comments on the article talk. --Pi zero (talk) 23:01, 29 October 2011 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Sorry I'm being so slow with the article; granted, we're shorthanded at the moment, but I'd be moving on it a bit faster than this if I could. It's a technical problem on my end, you might say: We're in the middle of a multi-day power outage here (along with maybe half a million other people in New England), and I only get to access the internet for a few hours twice a day. :-(  --Pi zero (talk) 12:13, 31 October 2011 (UTC)Reply[reply]
