Remember to always sign your posts on talk pages. You can do this either by clicking on the Insert-signature.png button on the edit toolbar or by typing four tildes (~~~~) at the end of your post. This will automatically insert your signature, a link to this (your talk) page, and a timestamp.

The best way to learn about something is to experience it. Explore, learn, contribute, and don't forget to have some fun!
To get some practice editing you can use a sandbox. You can create your own private sandbox for use any time. Perfect for working on bigger projects. Then for easy access in the future, you can put {{My sandbox}} on your user page. By the way, seeing as you haven't created a user page yet, simply click here to start it.

Keep going![edit]

Ok Elbrown1234, You're on your way. You're being a little too selective though right now. Keep on going. What about the other world press freedom organizations? What about other English speaking news? What about foreign news? I like your New York Times and Guardian citations because they show "significant coverage" in the national or international media. Do one more search and paste the URLs in the format set out on your user page before running the Reflinks tool or using Lexis-Nexis. Don't forget the RSF! Paste them on your User page this time!

Notice that I changed the format of your cites from <http ... to "<" and a "ref" with a close ">". Crtew (talk) 03:27, 6 February 2012 (UTC)


Don't forget about Sabah al-Bazi! There is a reason these two journalists are grouped together. Some articles may mention one but not the other or they might not mention either and focus on the incident. Search for all of those possibilities! Crtew (talk) 19:32, 12 February 2012 (UTC)

• Terrorist incident #1: Tikrit, Iraq, 29 March 2011, which killed Sabah al-Bazi and Muammar Khadir Abdelwahad.


Do your Lexis-Nexis search before you create your sandbox page. Crtew (talk) 01:29, 14 March 2012 (UTC)


Write your lead before you create your sandbox page. Crtew (talk) 01:30, 14 March 2012 (UTC)

Seattle cite[edit]

I want you to fix that Seattle citation. Can you get the cite to that Seattle Times article becuase there is no information for it. I still have to place the map pins for Tikrit. Overall it's very good! Please repsond here and tell me when you're finished. Crtew (talk) 16:57, 1 May 2012 (UTC)

Sorry, write me on my talk page.Crtew (talk) 17:01, 1 May 2012 (UTC)
