Hi Gopher65. I noticed that you are not an admin and I think we should change that problem. I would like to nominate you for adminship. We can do it now or when you come back from your break in the New Year. Let me know. Cheers --PatrickFlaherty (talk) 07:16, 20 December 2008 (UTC)

Thanks again for your PATIENCE in reviewing my article. I had put some bits of my mind there, and if you have time, you can read my rather long homily-explanation on WHY these days, I write kilometric news articles with litany or tons of sources scaring reviewers off my review article.

About the Article "The Bitter Reality of BITS-Pilani, Dubai"

What do you suggest me in this article, its not biased, its just showing the reality which has occurred. This article shows the insight of the newspaper article which was published in Gulf News. Its a reliable and true case. But you can guide me which part is looking biased to you and i would be glad to work on it.

About the Article "The Bitter Reality of BITS-Pilani, Dubai"

Ok i changed that part in it and re-edited few paras and deleted few areas to make it look much more even, to the students and the college authorities, take a look and let me know soon

A little help here

How to change the heading of the article like i want to change it to "The Insight Report on BITS-Pilani, Dubai" How to change it? reply me soon

I need some answers

I didnt want to delete that but you people always seem to have some problem with the content in it even after lots of deletion and and trying not to be as biased as possible, but here we are facing real life situation, a real life problem and on wikinews we are just giving an insight to the whole situation and the aftermath of the article which got published in Gulf News and Notes with different headings. What i want is an actual answer, you want sources, i gave the sources and exactly what are we suppose to write here on wikinews? its not only breaking news should get chance for publication, is this not news? is this not related to the people, is news not meant to be heard by the people, in other words the truth. i'm ready to co-operate, but i'm not getting suggestions from you guys, you are pointing the mistake, like biasness but not telling which part is biased, haven't i mentioned the positive points of the college? please let me know because i want to re-write the article but this time i need your help so that it meets your requirements. Please reply me as soon as possible waiting for your earliest reply. Thanks a lot Syedatif (talk) 06:20, 2 February 2009 (UTC)

That article

Yeah I was wondering what was up with that, I tried to put it back to the develop stage, for some reason it went to publish, I have no clue how that happened. Soapy (talk) 18:04, 22 February 2009 (UTC)


Thanks for this.

Not done template

Hi. Just wanted to remind you that you can use the {{not done}} template instead of inserting an image when declining an editprotected request, as you did here. Best regards, Tempo di Valse ♪ 02:19, 7 March 2009 (UTC)

Oh yes, and there's also a {{done}} template. Tempo di Valse ♪ 23:20, 12 March 2009 (UTC)
Oops. Sorry. I thought that you were just inserting the image instead. Never mind. Tempo di Valse ♪ 01:37, 13 March 2009 (UTC)

Thank you

Thank you for your kind words at Six vehicle pileup disrupts traffic on highway in British Columbia and the help with the new more universal title, will try to do a three paragraph expansion. Kind Regards SriMesh | talk 04:32, 7 March 2009 (UTC)

My first article

Hey, my name's Hunter. I contribute at Wikipedia frequently, but I've never tried Wikinews before. I just tried my first article, Pennsylvania cop on trial for allegedly murdering girlfriend's estranged wife. I see that you contribute here pretty often, so I was hoping you could take a look and see if I've done this right and give me any pointers. I wasn't sure if it should go up to review or development, so I left it in development just in case. I asked a few other users for help as well. Please let me know. Thanks very much! --Hunter Kahn (talk) 03:42, 10 March 2009 (UTC)

Expeditions swim to the North Pole

Thanks for saving the article. I have added the dates of all three expedtions which are all currently underway. Used the verb will too much perhaps trying to change from the passive voice to the active voice. Kind Regards SriMesh | talk 19:20, 10 March 2009 (UTC)

Thank you for the tip

Hello there. That is good news, I will try to do it better. So flicker pictures should get an external link with single bars, and users on wikicommons can just get an ordinary wikilink with double bars. Will change to that format. Thanks for the heads up. Kind Regards SriMesh | talk 03:15, 16 March 2009 (UTC)

Maldives to become the world's first carbon-neutral country

Yaaaay! I finally got an article on the Google News' front page. Thanks for the link. I wonder how Google determines which stories websites get the top slots? Tempo di Valse ♪ 13:58, 16 March 2009 (UTC)

Original reporting

Hey...You noted earlier you're from this neck of the woods. If you read this comment and you know wikinews, would it be a viable option to pursue?

Do you want to read this note at water cooler, which goes to my sandbox, and see if wikinews would want this kind of original reporting? I can give more details if needed.SriMesh | talk 02:09, 21 March 2009 (UTC)

User:Tempodivalse/Writing contest

Hallo! Would you like to join an article writing/reviewing contest that I started? We need more people to join up. Smile.png If you're interested, drop a line at the above link. Thanks! Tempo di Valse ♪ 14:29, 21 March 2009 (UTC)

A penny for your thoughts

Okay, not really, but I am requesting your participation in the following Water Cooler Discussion: OR and Broadcast report. The discussion involves the need for specific policy concerning how Original Reporting relates to information recieved from a broadcast report of an event. This can include both news-style reports and non-news reports, such as a sporting event. Thanks and again, please share your thoughts on this so we can get as many people involved as possible, especially since this relates to an important topic such as OR. —Calebrw (talk) 05:18, 27 April 2009 (UTC)

User of Wikipedia

I saw you mention wikipedia on one of the talk pages. are you an admin there too? --Meteorman7228 (talk) 00:59, 20 July 2009 (UTC)

Thanks for the 'welcome'

Although I do have an account, and I've been here for about two or three years! Unfortunately, it doesn't get any easier having your contributions accepted. -- (talk) 02:12, 2 August 2009 (UTC)
