Flagged discussions[edit]

{{flag}} Why do we have the flagged discussions listed twice on the Newsroom page? -Green Giant (talk) 21:30, 21 January 2020 (UTC)

@Green Giant: Once upon a time, apparently, en.wn followed a naively labor-intensive practice of manually maintaining a bulletin-board-like list of notices on template {{wn news}}, which is transcluded below the fold in the newsroom. It's the sort of thing that will break and stay broken the moment anything interrupts the continuity of the tradition, and apparently something did interrupt it; the list wasn't very well placed for people to remember it was there, I note. In 2012 this list was hopelessly out of date, and I replaced it with a DPL (I don't remember this, but it's there in the template's revision history). The DPL, however, either was redundant when added or later became so. I've now removed the DPL from {{wn news}}. --Pi zero (talk) 14:54, 30 January 2020 (UTC)

Update to the community links[edit]

Under the Wikinews News subsection, we have the following links:

Via {{Wn news}}
  • Wikinews Blog
    • Propose to remove link. This is currently hidden but the website appears to have been inactive since 2009.
  • Wikinews on Flickr
    • Propose to remove link. This is an inactive Flickr group with no real discussion since 2007. The two most recent discussions are an invitation to a survey and a rambling post about... well I can’t work out what it’s about.
  • Wikimedia news
    • Propose to remove link. The Wikizine website no longer functions.
  • Wikipedia news
    • Propose to change this to:
      • {{w|WP:Wikipedia Signpost|Wikipedia Signpost}}
  • merchandise
    • This goes to an external website with no apparent Wikimedia merchandise.
    • Propose to replace it with a link to store.wikimedia.org
  • Wikimedia blogs
    • Propose to remove link. Not sure how useful it is to have a link to this?
Separately

If there are no concerns raised, I will update these links in seven days time. I’m not opposed to keeping a list of them somewhere for reference purposes. I would suggest a link to Wikinewsie.org but I’m not sure how active it is. --Green Giant (talk) 09:58, 30 April 2020 (UTC)

Done replaced with three links to internal news. --Green Giant (talk) 01:06, 10 May 2020 (UTC)
