  1. Hello,

    I submitted a ‘how to’ project on browsing WT via recent changes view quite a while ago. Based on continuing comments I’ve seen on the feedback page that info would seem to be useful to many, but the project is still ‘Pending’.

    Perhaps the process for a community member creating a new project is not clear to me – does an editor need to move the status from ‘Pending’?

    Best wishes,

  2. Hi Peter, Fiona told me to write you a reminder here concerning my story which is ready since a couple of days. Regards,

    1. Thanks. Steve has sent you some suggestions. Yes?

  3. Hello Peter,

    You asked whether I thought the Nobel Prize briefing was ready for an editor to have a look at.

    If you or any other editor has the time, I would welcome you to have a look and see if it is publishable.

    I barely know the difference between story type : “briefing” and other types of articles, but I am guessing “brief” means that the article should probably not be a lot longer than it is.

    If I wrote a longer article on gravitational waves, which story type might fit best?

    1. Thanks, Daniel! Jumping in here. I’ll take a look at Nobel now.
      And we’re mindful of the potential confusion on story types. More on that TK.
      Working on smoothing out the story process over here — would love to hear more about what you’re thinking re: gravitational waves // what the STORY is!

      1. re: “re: gravitational waves // what the STORY is!”

        I tried to have a look but I could not find this story.

  4. Hello Peter,

    After some difficulty logging in, and other commitments which kept me away from WT, I’ve just started to make edits. The first few were promptly reversed! I’ve emailed Fiona, as below, and am awaiting a response.

    I also made this suggestion yesterday (showing in Talks), but had no response.

    Hello. Why are we saying in par 2 ‘It was one of……….?’ Is it not better to say ‘worst since 1949’?

    Hi Fiona,

    I made a few edits to this yesterday but it seems David Bennett reversed them – without even checking Wikipedia. We need to have reliable people. I’m not going to spend my time re-reversing. In particular, to change the Free Democratic Party back to the Federal DP is an egregious error, as was the first use of the name. How this survived so many revisions and edits is beyond me. We will have many well-educated readers when we launch and some of those would notice this mistake.
