Abstract (please use no less than 300 words to describe your proposal)
Unlike Wikipedia and other projects, Wikinews has very specific dynamics: if there is no constant flow of news, it is not useful, readers are not coming and it is not possible to transform readers into editors/journalists. This paper discusses a couple of approaches for transformation Wikinews into the attractive source of information. Some of the approaches are already implemented into Wikinews in Serbian, some of them are not.
