Hello, and welcome to Wikiproject:News. We are a project trying to improve both the "In the News" section and the "Previous Breaking News" articles by subject. The immediate purpose of the "Previous Breaking News" is to allow editors to review news articles they might have missed while away from the site. The ultimate purpose of the "Previous Breaking News" is to update the corresponding Conservapedia articles.

Project leaders

Project leaders are responsible for supervising the project. Some of their responsibilities include:

  1. Posting news suggestions and wanted page links to the news page.
  2. Archiving completed wanted pages.
  3. Recruiting new members to the project.

To sign up simply put *~~~~.

If you are a liberal... we are not going to put liberal items on the Main Page, so your suggestions will be ignored and you will be removed from this project. You can contribute by creating wanted articles that link to the Main page.


In the News

This subsection is for suggestions for the "In the news" section of the Main Page. The news section is not trying to be unbiased. News items will be biased toward conservative, Christian people and views.

This doesn't mean we are going to place information which is incorrect, uncertain, or known to be false. Our "bias" is one of interest and perspective. However, the misleading interpretations, wishful thinking and outright lies of the (mainstream) liberal media will not be presented here. Conservapedia aims to expose and debunk such propaganda.

We're also not trying to reproduce Fox News and report on every news story. There will be a wide range of sources (including blogs) that illustrate news and opinions according to the guidelines.

Review the Guidelines. Make your suggestions here.

Editing the "In the News" section

If you're an administrator, you can edit the news section. Here's how to do it:

  1. On the Main Page, there is an edit link to the right of "In the News".
  2. Click the edit link, and you will be editing "Template:Mainpageright (section)".
  3. Enter a post below where it says "PAGE CONTENT BEGINS BELOW THIS LINE".
  4. You can put a return and ---- to separate the posts.
  5. Add the news posting.
  6. Put something in the edit summary and click the preview button to see how it looks.
  7. Click "Save page" and view your addition on the Main Page.

Wanted Pages

This is a very important part of this project. Some of the news articles posted on the Main page need new articles created on Conservapedia. If you create a wanted page for a news article, it will be wikilinked on the Main Page.
