English Wikinews at Youtube

Some of recent articles include photos and audio. Making a video file out of them and uploading to Youtube could be a good idea for a wider autidence. There is a English Wikinews Youtube channel. Do we want to use it now? Who can add to it? Gryllida 12:31, 17 December 2012 (UTC)

Does not bother me with the work I have contributed to. --LauraHale (talk) 12:53, 17 December 2012 (UTC)
I think it's a great idea. It would also partially solve the problem of viewing videos and audio on tablet devices. I would fully endorse it. -- CalF (talk) 15:48, 17 December 2012 (UTC)
I think its a brilliant idea. It gives us more exposure and like mentioned above, opens the door for more listeners/readers/contributors. I endorse this too. DragonFire1024 (Talk to the Dragon) 22:32, 17 December 2012 (UTC)

Online Weather

hi. im here to suggest if you want put the online weather of cities (even you want) around the world (like this) and put on in Portal:Weather and somewhere you like, i can do it with robot (hourly update) and is very useful. thanks.--Mahdiz (talk) 16:41, 25 December 2012 (UTC)

  • A weather bot would be good to have. Quick questions: What's it currently written in? Where is it running?
The other thing that'd need checked is the source of the data; a great deal of weather data is more-freely licensed than Wikinews' default terms. We'd need to acknowledge that.
My suggestion would be a trial run, then applying for bot status on the account. Off the top of my head, doing Portal:Weather/Continent and Portal:Weather/Continent/Country would be an excellent start.
Longer-term, resurrecting the weather maps we had a long time ago would be good. --Brian McNeil / talk 08:17, 26 December 2012 (UTC)
hi. i think when you see THIS and THIS2 You get answer for your question. Best Regards--Mahdiz (talk) 19:33, 26 December 2012 (UTC)
