Greek sports[edit]

I would like to cover the Greek sports news, and I'd want to know if anyone's interested in these news. Gmentis (talk) 19:51, 31 December 2017 (UTC)

@Gmentis: We'd be happy to have Greek sports coverage. There are some basics you'll need to learn, to write articles that can pass our review process. You may find page WN:PILLARS helpful. There are also other pages that might help, such as WN:WRITE. And please feel free to ask us questions. --Pi zero (talk) 22:20, 31 December 2017 (UTC)

I have already written two stories, in an article style, as far as I am concerned. The one about Shojaei Masoud's loan to AEK (FORZA AEK!) and the one of Ehsan Hajsafi's transfer to Olympiacos. Gmentis (talk) 09:47, 1 January 2018 (UTC)

@Gmentis: We welcome contributors willing to learn. You have attempted several articles, but you clearly don't know the en.wn basics, and if your attitude is "my writing is valuable by definition, I don't need to learn anything", you won't learn anything because you won't try to. Assuming that anything you write should be published without vetting by others is blogging, and is not what en.wn is for. --Pi zero (talk) 14:18, 1 January 2018 (UTC)
@Gmentis: if you don’t submit those articles for review, they would be marked stale. (talk) 15:21, 2 January 2018 (UTC)

How can I submit them? Gmentis (talk) 15:29, 2 January 2018 (UTC)

@Gmentis: There should be a button on the {{develop}} tag. If that doesn't work —and we want to know if it doesn't— there are instructions on the {{develop}} tag. --Pi zero (talk) 15:36, 2 January 2018 (UTC)
