Recommend waiting a bit[edit]

Hia Pashute! On en.Wikinews our set of policies and our requirements for articles are a bit weird, so we like recommend waiting a bit before requesting the Reviewer flag. Usually we like to see someone write a few articles, and help fix a few more before the tag is granted (the time that this takes to happen depends on the contributor, but usually we prefer a person to be active on the project for a week or two before granting or regranting the Reviewer flag). This isn't to say that you won't make a great reviewer in a couple of weeks, we just like to be certain that new or returning users have a good grasp of all the oddness that is Wikinews before that particular flag is granted.

I hope this helps:). (Oh, and I replaced the old welcome template on this talk page with the *New And Improved* version (heh). Hopefully you don't mind.)Gopher65talk 17:09, 25 March 2011 (UTC)Reply

Article failed review[edit]

Your article, Two Israelis injured while Israeli rocket prevention system succeeds, has failed review. The reasons have been given on the article talk page. There is still time to fix it and get it published though! Gopher65talk 12:21, 8 April 2011 (UTC)Reply

I'm starting to have a look at this with my reviewer hat on. Two things spring out immediately. First, and most-important, is the headline. That could refer to almost any event over several months of years. Check the guidance in {{Howdy}} on picking a more-focused headline. If you're not able to move/rename the article, put suggestions on the talk page.

Secondly, you'd cited Facebook as a source, but not given any link. That's close to doing original reporting, but as you weren't linking to anything it is impossible to verify if, and what, details you might have picked up from there. I'm not saying pulling detail out of Facebook would not be accepted; it's just that you would need to treat it like original research, and provide links and quotes on the talk page for the article. So, I've had to removed that as an unlinked, and unusable, cite.

I expect there's sufficient content to correct the other issue I should've popped up a note on: our three-paragraph minimum for an article. The image on Wikipedia's article covering the Inverted pyramid gives you a very visual template for that. --Brian McNeil / talk 11:16, 8 February 2015 (UTC)Reply

Hi. Please see my review comments. Alas, with delays in re-reviewing, we only have about 26 hours to get this article revised, re-reviewed, and published, unless new developments can be introduced. --Pi zero (talk) 22:03, 17 September 2020 (UTC)Reply
