To file a request for credentials or for revocation, please read over the Accreditation policy first. You can also view the accredited users list.

If you would like to receive official Wikinews credentials, please type your username after the slash in the box below, click "request", then follow the instructions. After you have posted, the user's entry will solicit Support/Object votes from Wikinews users for the duration of 7 days for accreditation and 14 for revocation. At the expiration of this time period the user will either be granted accreditation, or the vote removed from this page and archived. In the case of revocation a case may be closed early, but no earlier than 7 days, when there is overwhelming consensus.


Upon successful accreditation

Once accredited, you can get a personal email address on Wikinewsie. Please contact user Brian McNeil about this, your email address will be made up based on the details given when applying - if you have a middle name and you feel having this in the address (or its initial) is important, please say so. You must either provide an existing email address for the password to be sent to, or have enabled email from your en.wikinews account and specify this as the preferred contact method. For further information, contact an active, established, already-accredited user. Requests for an email address must be verifiable - either submit via 'email this user', or signed, and on Brian McNeil's talk page.

In addition to a wikinewsie.org email address, accredited reporters may – at their own expense – obtain a stock of business cards clearly indicating they are an accredited reporter. You can see a sample here. (Note, degraded to a quality that prevents use.)

Revocations[edit]

Remember: For requests for revoking credentials, "support" or "revoke" means "remove accreditation," and "oppose" or "keep" means "keep accreditation."

Please note that only accredited reporters who have misused their credentials granted to them (as can be proved through concrete evidence) may be listed here.
