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! Anonymous101talk 14:16, 16 August 2008 (UTC)[reply]


Firstly, here are the reasons we have to review edits

  • To stop vandalism
  • To allow for facts to be verified.

1: Why is that necessary here and not at Wikipedia?

Because so many of our articles are linked to from the Main Page and to get listed on Google News, we need to have a review process. (and we are trying to get listed on Google News). Also, Wikipedia is considering getting the same extension installed.

2: Who decided (and by what method was the decision made) that this systemic review process is advisable?

The Wikinews community, unanimously, in several votes.Anonymous101talk 18:50, 16 August 2008 (UTC)[reply]

Secondly, the npov tag was removed because it had already been published for quite a while and no one else had seen this problem. Anonymous101talk 14:22, 16 August 2008 (UTC)[reply]
