Hello. I am currently most active on the English Wikinews.
I am also currently heavily involved in the creation, development and directing of Wikinews Video 2.0. Feel free to view the promotional video I created for Wikinews Video. Keep in mind its only a promotion and the countries pictured represent the different languages that are part of Wikinews.
I am mostly here to gain some assistance in the project and advice from anyone who is willing to help :-)
I am also on a mission to find someone who is educated in writing grant applications for the project Wikinews Video.

Examination of Anankastic Remarks[edit source]
Please be aware that your remarks at the Wikinews Water Cooler are being reviewed here in the context of the Wikiversity Learning Project on Ethical Management of the English Language Wikipedia.

In terms of English language grammar, the sentence structure of your above quoted remarks corresponds to that of an anankastic conditional.
In plain English, such a sentence structure is typically perceived as a bullying (or intimidating) remark, conveying an express threat, with the intent of inducing a chilling effect on the targeted individual.
Is this the perception and effect you wished to convey?
