Our key policies - if you read anything, read these!
- Wikinews:Neutral point of view - tell every side to a story in a fair and balanced way

- And of course, stories need writing!
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 20:25, 4 May 2007 (UTC)
Just a reminder to all of those interested in doing news reading for Video Wikinews. While we continue the "creation" process regarding the actual broadcast, we encourage all of you to get involved and speak Wikinews.
We would love for users to practice or show off their skills by reporting Wikinews articles in the form of audio. Anyone who has a microphone can do it. Simply go to the help page of wikinews audio for help on how to record an article. DragonFire1024 06:54, 26 May 2007 (UTC)
