Save/Publish

Whatamidoing (WMF) (talk) 18:03, 9 August 2016 (UTC)

Hello, Wikinews contributors.
User:Pi zero and I have been talking about this change, and we'd like to try something different. It might be confusing to start with a "Publish page" button, since the first edit to an article is not the end of the Wikinews publishing process as outlined in Wikinews:Reviewing articles. So we are going to try this instead: The "Save page" button will stay the same, but MediaWiki:Copyrightwarning will have a statement added to warn inexperienced people that their contributions will immediately be shared with the general public.
We are assuming that every Wikinews is using a similar structure for reviewing, and therefore we are going to try this at all Wikinewses. To do this, I need the statement translated for the copyright warning file right away! If you speak a Wikinews language (other than English), please check m:User:Whatamidoing (WMF)/Wikinews. It's just two sentences and should (I hope) be easy for anyone who is bilingual or multilingual. I need these translations this week, if at all possible.
If you have any questions or need to reach me, then please {{ping}} me. Thanks, Whatamidoing (WMF) (talk) 19:11, 24 August 2016 (UTC)
