Welcome to Wikinews

A nice cup of coffee for you while you get started

Getting started as a contributor
How to write an article
  1. Pick something current?
  2. Use two independent sources?
  3. Read your sources before writing the story in your own words?. Do choose a unique title? before you start.
  4. Follow Wikinews' structure? for articles, answering as many of who what when where why and how? as you can; summarised in a short, two- or three-sentence opening paragraph. Once complete, your article must be three or more paragraphs.
  5. If you need help, you can add {{helpme}} to your talkpage, along with a question, or alternatively, just ask?

  • Use this tab to enter your title and get a basic article template.
    [RECOMMENDED. Starts your article through the semi-automated {{develop}}—>{{review}}—>{{publish}} collaboration process.]

 Welcome! Thank you for joining Wikinews; we'd love for you to stick around and get more involved. To help you get started we have an essay that will guide you through the process of writing your first full article. There are many other things you can do on the project, but its lifeblood is new, current, stories written neutrally.
As you get more involved, you will need to look into key project policies and other discussions you can participate in; so, keep this message on this page and refer to the other links in it when you want to learn more, or have any problems.

All Wikimedia projects have rules. Here are ours.

Listed here are the official policies of the project, you may be referred to some of them if your early attempts at writing articles don't follow them. Don't let this discourage you, we all had to start somewhere.

The rules and guides laid out here are intended to keep content to high standards and meet certain rules the Wikimedia Foundation applies to all projects. It may seem like a lot to read, but you do not have to go through it all in one sitting, or know them all before you can start contributing.

Remember, you should enjoy contributing to the project. If you're really stuck come chat with the regulars. There's usually someone in chat who will be happy to help, but they may not respond instantly.

The core policies
Places to go, people to meet

Wiki projects work because a sense of community forms around the project. Although writing news is far more individualistic than contributing to Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia, people often need minor help with things like spelling and copyediting. If a story isn't too old you might be able to expand it, or if it is disputed you may be able to find some more sources and rescue it before it is listed for deletion.

There are always discussions going on about how the site could be improved, and your input is of value. Check the links here to see where you can give input to the running of the Wikinews project.

Thanks for your contributions to Wikinews. I do have a question, though. Are you using AI to generate articles? SVTCobra 12:59, 5 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hi I have used it to improve the para. TechGPT (talk) 13:02, 5 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Hmm. As you can see here (that's just one of many such discussions), our sister project Wikipedia has been extensively debating the use of ChatGPT for writing encyclopedia articles. They seem to be deciding against it for now, both for copyright concerns and ethical concerns. Also, ChatGPT does not understand our style guide, meaning that these articles would need extensive human editing, as these two you submitted did.
All in all, it's best to write your own articles. Heavy Water (talk) 14:43, 5 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hi TechGPT

Thanks for the story. Here are a few questions, that you might find interesting to include:

  • Who, how, and when announced the loss? Suggested to include this information in the first paragraph.
  • The sources' headlines state Mr Adani -- the person, not the company -- lost half of his wealth. Yet, the first paragraph of the draft, in its current revision, states it is the 'Adani Group', i.e. the company.
  • What is the difference between 'Adani Enterprises' and 'Adani Group'.
  • Sources say something about shares from Adani (the company) going on sale on January 25 in India. The draft does not mention any sale of shares.
  • "In the coming months, it will be important to monitor the situation at Adani" is an opinion, I would suggest to attribute it, i.e. write '... it will be important to ..., XYZ suggested', where XYZ is name of the person or company that suggested this monitoring.
  • Adding a photo of Mr Adani from Wikimedia Commons into the article may be worthwhile.
  • A plot of Adani's (the company) shares over the last two years may need to be included. Careful with Creative Commons licensing of the data and of the image.
  • Some 'Hindenburg report' seems central to the event, it would be great to mention it in the article.
  • If 'half his wealth' figure is verifiable, it may be worthwhile including it into the article.

Please, let me know if you have any questions or might require assistance in editing.
