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! Doldrums 10:53, 19 August 2006 (UTC)

SC article[edit]

welcome again, and thanks for contributing. i guess u've figured out how to leave messages on user talk pages (yes, the add comment' link at the top of the page).

regarding OR sources, if u've gathered the contributions information from an online source, then just add a link to it along with the other sources in the article. if it was not online, just indicate clearly what your source is, u don't have to duplicate the content of the source. the idea of doing all this is to ensure that wikinews is a reliable source - all the information presented in it should be verifiable. so an interested reader should be able to locate the source using the information u've provided. hope this helps, Doldrums 13:51, 19 August 2006 (UTC)

and once u've added the or source, u can remove the {{or dispute}} tag in the article. Doldrums 13:54, 19 August 2006 (UTC)
