Thanks, Fellow. --SVTCobra 16:35, 9 August 2006 (UTC)
I see you have the welcome, I think all your article needed was expanded a bit before publishing. Plus a new title, titles are unique on Wikinews, we can never re-use them so you need to look at all the information you bring to the article and pick out some unique, but hopefully catchy point about it and use that as the title. I would have come back and worked on the article, or someone else would have picked up on it later on, I'm dealing with some older stuff that hasn't been properly proofed. --Brian McNeil / talk 16:19, 9 August 2006 (UTC)
Hi Brian, I changed the title to something more unique. I see your point about expanding the article, but I re-read the sources. There really isn't alot of info here. They all use fluff whether it be about another incident or the politics of Australia. Also, they don't agree on much. They can't agree whether the attackers had mortars or rockets. They can't agree whether there was air support in repelling the attack. (for others we are talking about this article)
Yup, I commented on the page, I read one of the sources and skimmed the other two - it is pretty thin, bulk it up with pictures, or {{Wikinews Today short infobox}} (shown here to bulk up this comment). However, always aim for two paragraphs, and four sentences minimum with the {{expand}} tag. --Brian McNeil / talk 16:43, 9 August 2006 (UTC)

Award

I, FellowWikiNews (W), hereby award you the Wikinews Trophy for your contributions. I hope to see more good works from you on Wikinews.

Thank you so much. I am honored. It is an honor to just be nominated. There are too many people for me to thank, I cannot possibly list them all. --SVTCobra 00:37, 17 August 2006 (UTC)

I did see it... about a second after I published mine:) No worries, I had some additional material which I've merged into the existing article. Crimson 02:36, 17 August 2006 (UTC)

Actually, the SVTCobra moment had been on my talk page for some time. Thank you for acknowledging it nonetheless. Now the context is explained. —this is messedrocker (talk) 02:02, 3 November 2006 (UTC)
