  • Chirac is now on ITN. Here's a pic of him from WCommons for use, in case admins feel that Image:2005 riots France.png is not good for the Main Page due to lack of references. -- 64.229.206.243 23:11, 6 November 2005 (UTC)


  • A tornado rips through Southern Indiana in the early morning hours, causing as many as 22 deaths and 230 injuries. (CNN) --Holderca1 17:07, 6 November 2005 (UTC)
  • Azerbaijani people go to the polling booths in parliamentary elections. The fairness of the elections is disputed. Gerrit CUTEDH 10:34, 6 November 2005 (UTC)
    • The article needs much more context, particularly on the elections themselves. For starters, who's running? It's also not properly neutral to only have mention of the prospect (or not) of another color revolution. In any case, I don't expect this should be posted until the election is concluded and the results are in.--Pharos 17:33, 6 November 2005 (UTC)
      • I have no idea who's running, can't find the information. Was hoping someone the increased visibility would make someone add the information... Gerrit CUTEDH 19:31, 6 November 2005 (UTC)
        • For increased visibility ? This is what Current events is for. More finished products can then go on ITN on the Main Page. --64.229.206.243 23:06, 6 November 2005 (UTC)

It's fair use--a non-reproducable historic event. --BG 19:54, 3 November 2005 (UTC)
Fair use is highly questionable in the article -see Rama's note on the image page- and we have a distinct policy against putting "fair use" images on the main page.--Pharos 10:49, 4 November 2005 (UTC)
Départements affected by (mostly sporadic) riots as of 5 November.
