Asking people how they read news[edit]

I would like to add Wikinews writing widgets to everything people use to read news: to rss readers, to facebook apps, to any addons or any software that is comfortable with the idea. To do this I will need to develop a list of things which are most commonly used for reading news (for me this is Firefox, for example, I am developing news writing tools for it). If Firefox is the most commonly used news reading app for others as well then I will continue but if not then I will be happy to re-learn another technology that has a greater impact.

To know this I would suggest to replace the 'request an article' thing in the banner shown everywhere with something that asks for peples input about how they read news, i.e.

Want to help out? Share with us how you read your news, so that we can bring Wikinews' writing tools to you. Leave a message today.

Thoughts about the latest community wishlist[edit]

Hi everyone, maybe you could be interested participating to this discussion about the community wishlist and how to improve the process. Do not hesitate to give your opinion; the more we will know about the small communities, the more we can build something representative. Pamputt (talk) 17:39, 6 December 2019 (UTC)

Whatever that thing is, it wants me to give permission for it to access my personal information. I wouldn't touch that with a forty foot pole. Putting the discussion in an out-of-the-way non-wiki venue and requiring us to give up our privacy in order to participate is, sadly, about what I've come to expect from the WMF. --Pi zero (talk) 18:12, 6 December 2019 (UTC)
