In addition to the Adding of the two public holidays, can it be mentioned that it was announced on the Day of Remembrance for the Victims of the Crimean Tatar Genocide[edit]

Not to be that guy who makes excuses for conspiracy theorists and anti-immigration jack a loons, but I feel like we should mention that the government of Ukraine's decision may have been out of respect for the tens of thousands of people who died in the mass deportation. Otherwise, it sounds like something Pamela Geller could use for their Eurabia conspiracy. — Unsigned, by: 209.128.2.98 / talk

A WIGO for nice things[edit]

So as discussed here, I have been setting up a WIGO in my userspace to focus specifically on positive news stories and whatnot. It is now live here, and I would appreciate some help making it look nice! Additionally, while I don’t think it’s worth making into its own Official WIGO, I was wondering if/when I could link to it somewhere in the WIGO pages for COVID, elections, and world? Any help is appreciated, thank you so much! I’m going to bed now but yeah, if you wanna have a go I think it would be very nice :) A S E L A ཊལྐ 16:10, 25 November 2020 (UTC)

Hi, I’m new around here. This is probably a stupid question, but… How old your account must be to add an entry? Mikwee (talk) 10:01, 28 November 2020 (UTC)

no, it isnt brexit.[edit]

at least not solely. and the current gridlock largely due to the french government shutting the border with no notice due to the new strain of covid. theres plenty to be disdainful about brexit but this isnt one. yet. AMassiveGay (talk) 00:38, 22 December 2020 (UTC)

the queens speech[edit]

your about 30 years late on clocking channel 4 doing an alternative. as they go, this one is incredibly unremarkable, which a pretty charitable view to say the least. does a really poor deepfake alert us to the dangers of deepfakes? concern over trust in media comes bit late anyhow. twitter and facebook have been drowning trust in media in a torrent of shit for years. a couple of weak jokes at various princes is pretty low effort as satire goes and even the surrounding controversy seems even more contrived than it usually is. i guess every one is phoning it in this year 82.5.75.153 (talk) 17:27, 26 December 2020 (UTC)

It's Rick Snyder, not Scott Snyder[edit]

Folks, the name of the Ex-Gov. that is facing charges for the Flint water crisis is Rick Snyder, not Scott. Dunno how to edit that, so here you go. Thanks. Commissairejuve 20:15, 13 January 2021 (UTC)
