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!

Datrio skin[edit]

Hi there, welcome to en wikinews. Some of the structure of en wikinews is slightly different from pl wikinews, so some versions of the datrio skin don't work perfectly here. We maintain an alternate version that works for the en wikinews which you can use by changing your special:mypage/monobook.css to have only the line:

@import url(;

in it. For more information, see here and here. If you have any questions about the english wikinews, please don't hesitate to ask, Happy editing. Bawolff 22:53, 3 February 2008 (UTC)


Hmm...good question. if I were you I would ask User:Brianmc. We did it once before I believe. Bu he would be the best one to ask. I guess it would depend on your contributions to Wikinews. But ask him and see what he says. Sorry I could not be of more help. DragonFire1024 (Talk to the Dragon) 17:49, 1 June 2008 (UTC)

That is a good amount of contributions. I do wish we had some way of having all Wikinews languages having accreditation. I hope that we can work something out. DragonFire1024 (Talk to the Dragon) 18:05, 1 June 2008 (UTC)
Craig Spurrier and a few others are working on the "Collaborative Media Network" as a non-profit which would provide accreditation for different site, not just wikinews sites. However, we have a couple of people who predominantly work on other language wikinews.
I can't think of any pithy advice, and as I can't read your home wiki I'd have to rely on others vouching for you. The first suggestion that comes to mind is improving your userpage here and perhaps translating a couple of things over from it.WN (or the below suggestion about football). On your userpage list a few links to the articles you think are your best on it.WN, basically don't rush into accreditation and build a solid case. --Brian McNeil / talk 20:24, 1 June 2008 (UTC)

Serie A Match Reports[edit]

Would you be interested in writing news and match reports for Serie A? If so, you can sign up here. Signing up is more for organizational matters more then anything else. Kingjeff (talk) 18:22, 1 June 2008 (UTC)

Leads and wikilinks[edit]

Just as a FYI, Wikilinks should never be put into lead articles' synopsis. --Brian McNeil / talk 20:24, 2 July 2008 (UTC)
