NB: Im giving this message to the 10 or so people I suspect may be on Wikinews when the event occurs.

I've created a story announcing the Popes death - when the Vatican or BBC/Reuters announce he is actually dead please insert the date & time and publish - we will be the 1st news group to break this story (besides our source)! The story is located here User:CGorman/Sandbox. Whilst waiting please improve the story. → CGorman (Talk) 22:49, 1 Apr 2005 (UTC)


The {{WikimediaMention}} template has been used in other articles and has generally appeared at the top of the article. I personally feel that disclosure is just as important for Wikinews as for any other news outlet -- perhaps more so. The template I referenced above appears to be the "standard" template and based on my observations, it generally appears at the top. It's certainly "no big deal" -- I was just attempting to follow existing convention. --Chiacomo (talk) 05:22, 30 September 2005 (UTC)

Thanks for the feedback. I was just going by what I've seen in other pubs... We're welcome to create new standards here, particularly for openness and disclosure! Sj


Sorry this has taken so long, to receive Wikinews credentials I need your Location, Areas of coverage and whatever Contact information you want published --Cspurrier 01:15, 2 November 2005 (UTC)

Currently active articles[edit]

Too many WMF articles:

One edit war

Yet another pot article (we have 3 or 4 which are recent)

Excellent news brief

re Wikinews print, and mania[edit]

I plan to attend, but I have a few more things I have to work out before I can be 100%. What sort of thing would you like to do about print edition?--Cspurrier 01:44, 28 May 2006 (UTC)

Sorry about the slow reply, I will definitely be attending Wikimania. If it is not to late, I will be glad to do something on the Wikinews print editon. --Cspurrier 20:20, 9 July 2006 (UTC)
sorry likewise that the daily newslet didn't work out quite as planned. The first day's work was interesting, and shared digitally at least; but the layout didn't get done. I hope that wikinews can field a real delegation next year, with a distributed layout team, and an audio/video mixing team for live podcasts and videocasts. Now *that* would be something noone's ever done well. Sj 09:24, 25 October 2006 (UTC)

Accreditation Expiration[edit]

Greetings, I wanted to let you know that our policy regarding accreditation has recently changed slightly. Specifically we've enacted an automatic expiration of accreditation after 2 years. You can very easily "re-up" your accreditation should you choose to, but at this point in time you're on the Inactive list. As such your accreditation will automatically be revoked on March 15th unless you request otherwise. Currently, posting to the following thread will keep your accreditation. At a later date, all Accredited reporters will be put in for that "re-up", at which time you'll be notified. Thank you, and should you have any questions, feel free to contact me on my talk page. --ShakataGaNai ^_^ 20:31, 4 March 2010 (UTC)
