I'm writing to let you know that the Wikimedia Board of Trustees has approved the first stage of the Wikinews project. There's now a fully operational English demo site at demo.wikinews.org. This will be used for experimenting with various review models and basic policies before the site is launched officially in about a week. demo.wikinews.org will become the English version later.
You voted for the Wikinews project, so I'm asking for your participation now. Everything is open, nothing is final. What Wikinews will and can be depends in large part on you. There already is a global Wikinews mailing list for discussing the project. If you are interested at all, please subscribe -- coordination is of key importance. There's also an IRC channel #wikinews on irc.freenode.net. Realtime discussion can help to polish up articles.
If you're looking for something to do, check out the articles in development and articles in review. Or start a new story in the Wikinews workspace, or ignore the proposed review system - it's up to you. I hope you'll join us soon in this exciting experiment.--Eloquence* 01:59, Nov 17, 2004 (UTC)
Hi, I noticed that you started this article way back in 2004, and seeing as it's currently up for deletion I was wondering if you had any sources for the info. Cheers, Ziggurat 01:19, 18 July 2006 (UTC)
- Thanks for the reply - I was asking in order to source it for the AfD linked to above; the article was kept, so it has all turned out well. Regards, Ziggurat 22:50, 22 August 2006 (UTC)
Hi there: now I know that the Grogs are sessile telepathic carnivores who inhabit Larry Niven's universe. But not everyone does; would you care to expand your article?--Anthony.bradbury 22:43, 22 August 2006 (UTC)
The article will be discussed at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Starseed until a consensus is reached, and anyone is welcome to contribute to the discussion. The nomination will explain the policies and guidelines which are of concern. The discussion focuses on high-quality evidence and our policies and guidelines.
Users may edit the article during the discussion, including to improve the article to address concerns raised in the discussion. However, do not remove the article-for-deletion template from the top of the article. ReformedArsenal (talk) 00:03, 11 December 2012 (UTC)
