Article formatting, subbing, tagging, etc.

Just saw mine had been tidied up.
Shame it was so short, but I couldn't find any more info, nice work on the picture (is it really from France tho you're not far away from Stalin's airbrushes tongue )

Is the "France:" bit in the headline something that went in automatically or is it something that you'd like done for all international stories?

I put some other stories in my blog, if news is slow or you like them then you can always switch stuff over.

i put in "France". yeah international stories we tend to do that mostly. i spose we should put in UK for uk stories, unless the location is obvious from elsewhere in the headline. I really wanted to make some pun headline, possibly using some french. But i resisted sad

ok, I put the Rennes one into news and I put in a link to the blog main page and to the eyewitness post on Rennes (Hermit's I think)

edit: just found a wildcat strike. I'm going to try to delay it but if I bugger that up then can an admin sort it out.

edit: actually, it doesn't say when you hover in firefox sad

I've put a wildcat strike at Airbus to go live tomorrow at midday, I've not backed it up so hopefully it's worked.

Is there a way to view all the articles I've written? I was wondering how many I'd done. Also any way of finding out reads?
It's 7pm and I'm starving, I'm going to look up Belgium trains tomorrow (and a possible posties wildcat)
then I have to tidy my flat so it doesn't look like I live in filth. I figure there's only so many times that won't seem, well filthy.

"my recent posts" (tracker) should do it. will include forum posts though.

We could probably set up something prettier that ignores forums though as well.

yeah John. I spotted that, luckily just before I translated the same article smile
Do we care about a 'zeal stike' by prison officers? Cancelling all transfers and meals. Starving prisoners doesn't seem too good although apparently they allowed loads of visits.
There's a thing about a bus drivers demo in Brussels but all I have on it is that 500-600 buses drove through the town in protest against new european laws on drivers' schedules. Might be worth tagging on the end of something else, although the wankers drove in groups to 'minimise disruption to traffic.'

if anyone wants it, I might have a win in aerospace.

Is it me or is the news really humming right now? Maybe it's cause the weather's getting warmer.

Is delayed posting working yet? Cause the three stories we have up are good and I see no need to knock them off just yet.
I'll write them up and check back here, if it's not working I'll post them up with the link so you guys can find them and put them up when you need.

yeah news is full of good shit right now.

er prison officers... fuck them i think. ones here nearly wildcatted recently but we ignored.

yeah bus drivers thing could be tagged on something else... hmm although having a quick look are they protesting against breaks legislation or something?

what's the aerospace thing?

delayed publishing not working yet no...

aviation France
wildcate strikes

these tags are offered to me when I input mine, they might need to be taken out if they're still in there.

picture's a bit big but I didn't know how to crop it, plus I never do pictures so be pleased smile
I also did a few tags although I might have missed some.

news/belgium-aviapartner-workers-strike-after-fatal-accident-14032007 for node/14441

And another one

news/belgium-nivelles-postal-workers-still-out-strike-14032007 for node/14442

John., your piece yesterday is wrong, it's actually bus drivers
http://libcom.org/news/wildcat-strikes-continue-belgian-railways-1303200...

I already wrote this, yours looks pretty good but I think I had some info that you don't so maybe you can combine the two? I can't edit yours I assume.

Belgium: Bus drivers on wildcat strike threatened

The Minister for Transport in the Wallonia region, André Antoine, has threatened bus drivers with the sack after they went on strike last night.

From 4am bus drivers at the Onoz depot refused to work, they are arguing against limitations to their right to take holidays. The Basse Sambre region has been completely shut down.
The minister has denounced the wildcat strike, blaming 'union instigators' and promising that they will be identified and caught. He has also declared that the 'the majority [of drivers] won't suffer for the actions of a few', this assurance of limited reprisals seems unlikely to bear fruit. It is also perhaps a sign of desperation on the part of the minister who has also called for the sacking of striking rail workers in the last 24 hours.

I didn't quite undrstand. Something along the lines of not being able to delay breaks after twelve days and having to do them in six. Which I don't get. Unless they meant hours, in which case they're demonstrating for the right to fall asleep at the wheel roll eyes

so i thought, but you did just call me a ball, with a couple of random arrows which in no way signify 'on the' confused
