Embedded comments not working?[edit]

It seems like embedded comments (i.e. comments within "<!-- --!>" tags) aren't working properly on this page. The comments don't appear, but neither does anything after them. As there are comments in the "request an article" template which is linked from the main page, this ought to be fixed soon. (I'd happily do so myself, but I need sleep!!!) -- 21:16, 22 March 2007 (UTC)

  • This probs because it should be <!-- hidden text here --> with no second "!". Where exactly are these problems??--MarkTalk 21:19, 22 March 2007 (UTC)
Don't worry. I have fixed it. FellowWikiNews (W) (sign here!) 21:33, 22 March 2007 (UTC)


What are the differences between Requested articles and Wikinews Shorts:Today? —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talkcontribs) 21:50, 27 April 2007

as it stands, i feel this requested articles page is not well thought out. a requested articles page in which people who don't know anything about wikis can drop a lead wld be useful, but the way this is set up, anybody who uses this correctly can instead just go ahead and add pretty much the same thing to a Shorts. despite this, i don't think many requested articles have made it to publication, even as Shorts pieces (am i mistaken?) so i don't think it a good idea to continue it in its present form, especially with its promise that "another Wikinewsie will create your article for you". –Doldrums(talk) 16:28, 27 April 2007 (UTC)

Requested Articles not being done and also a cleanup should be needed[edit]

I have just noticed not many requested articles have been worked on or done and their starting to pile up. cleanup is needed. -- 13:15, 30 June 2008 (UTC)

major revamping needed[edit]

for the ra's it could be cleaned up a little. just looks a little messy. and p.s. ra's have not been updated in awhile none of them have been started or answered. --Crogan (talk) 10:12, 8 July 2008 (UTC)

requested articles seem to be dead[edit]

no one answers them lol -- 17:01, 27 September 2008 (UTC)

Most people just write something. I think its more so that people would start them and hope that someone would fix them and get them published. But there are a few users who do watch this page. DragonFire1024 (Talk to the Dragon) 17:02, 27 September 2008 (UTC)

Time for a new cleanup?[edit]

I see that many of the requested entries have not been cleaned up in awhile. Some have been made into articles some have not maybe if a admin or someone can cleanup the old and bring in the new that would be great. Thank you. --Softmusik4lyf (talk) 16:26, 9 May 2009 (UTC)

Mostly Stale[edit]

most of the requested articles are stale they should be removed and look forward for new requests to come in. -- (talk) 00:53, 2 August 2009 (UTC)


The guidelines say you need at least 2 sources, but the {{Request}} template only provides for one. I put the second source for my requested sports article in the edit summary. (talk) 02:50, 7 January 2013 (UTC)
