  • This sort of thing doesn't really belong in ITN — and it's already noted in Selected Anniversaries, anyhow. BLANKFAZE | (что??) 03:33, 30 Apr 2005 (UTC)
    • IMO, it might fit in ITN if there is an article or at least a good paragraph on the commemorations in Wikipedia, and such activities have to be widely reported in newspapers, and included in Current events first. -- PFHLai 19:48, 2005 Apr 30 (UTC)

  • Can we use   instead of the current  , please ? It's too small at 100px. Protection is also needed. -- 64.229.223.92 11:07, 26 Apr 2005 (UTC)
    • Thanks, but we don't need this now. -- PFHLai 22:28, 2005 Apr 26 (UTC)

  • Lots of stuff happening, Czech PM resigns, Bulgaria and Romania sign EU accession treaties, etc etc etc, but nobody pays prompt attention to this page, so why bother anymore. —Cantus 19:52, Apr 25, 2005 (UTC)
  • Write me up an item or two and I'll add them, me lad. BLANKFAZE | (что??) 20:40, 25 Apr 2005 (UTC)
has this been added somewhere? which link should appear bolded? dab () 18:39, 24 Apr 2005 (UTC)
Apologies about the link; I corrected it. Also, it should have been — it's on the front pages of the BBC, Observer, Mail on Sunday, etc. Wally 19:29, 24 Apr 2005 (UTC)

  • Microsoft's Encarta encyclopedia announced it will take user edit suggestions. (Reported by the AP; [5] is one of the reposts). They claim they'll hence harness the power of "a seemingly endless pool of people who may know more about a subject than hired editors ever would -- and will offer their expert advice for free." At least Wikipedia is mentioned, though it sounds chaotic, with deletion of articles by anyone who chooses to. Tempshill 18:30, 14 Apr 2005 (UTC)

Thank you. Not too Iraqi-centric, eh ? :-) BTW, is Wikipedia allowed to use Associated Press photos ? on the Front Page ?

I think this may not be big enough news. Too Americentric? BrokenSegue 02:56, 6 Apr 2005 (UTC)
It's probably not even big enough even if we were being Americentric. -- Cyrius| 05:18, 6 Apr 2005 (UTC)
Fair enough. Still, up here in Canada is seems to be moderately-big news. Then again, Peter Jennings is Canadian. I would also argue that just because news is from the USA, does not automatically make it Americentric. --Snickerdo 05:32, 6 Apr 2005 (UTC)
