Renewal as the seasons change

Welcome to this month's issue of the only notable publication by the Wikipedia community; for the Wikipedia community. We do hope that whether you are recovering from a bitter winter or a blazing summer that you consider the changing seasons as a reminder that nothing remains the same (even the dear old Signpost).

If you can spare some time to help in the Newsroom, we would appreciate seeing new people there. If you can spare time to comment on content to help us stay on track, we would also appreciate that. Take up the challenge, and you will never regret it!

  • Across the board actually. I wrote three columns/features myself, co-wrote several more, copyedited, and managed production as acting E-in-C. Our regular writers double as their own copyeditors. "In the media" takes significant research and got left on the floor. No WMF News which (ideally) should be a copy/paste. There are submissions that need help writing for our house style. Etc... ☆ Bri (talk) 16:10, 28 February 2019 (UTC)[reply]

"If you can spare some time to help in the Newsroom, we would appreciate seeing new people there." Clearly not true, judging from the response I had when I went there to help. And I'm not talking about the decision to publish that piece, I'm talking about the personal attacks from one of the EiCs.Headbomb {t · c · p · b} 19:16, 1 March 2019 (UTC)[reply]

I would like to see writers limit The Signpost to matters pertaining to Wikipedia rather than be used a forum for one's opinions about what's going on in the world. Less is usually better, especially on Wikipedia. Having said that, I rarely read it and would care little if it stopped production.
