  • Oppose Oppose This project would fail tremendously with internet distribution today. They can basically get info on major disasters from Wikipedia or Wikinews. While they can check the weather from other websites including the home screen of their own phones. You should try merging this with wiki news. Arep Ticous 13:53, 4 May 2020 (UTC)
  • Support Support This kind of functions of wiki contents can leave from Wikinewses, as several Wikinewses are mid-inactive. But if someone strongly argue that this must keep on Wikinews, I don't against. --Liuxinyu970226 (talk) 09:06, 3 July 2020 (UTC)
