StackNexo LLP (hereafter referred to as “The Sigma Hunt” / “We” / “Us” / “Our” / “WNO”) is a news site that generates information not only for a specific region’s audience, but also beyond borders and nations to provide a global perspective. We publish global news, commentary, analysis, and reviews on Entertainment and Technology.
Everything we publish is based on our editorial values.
Accountability and Transparency
The Sigma Hunt operates without bias or prejudice. Whatever content WNO offers to the audience, honesty is essential. Our readers should have complete confidence that our work is not influenced by political or societal influences, or by personal interests.
Our output will be based on justice, transparency, honesty, and candour.
Contributors and audience members shall be handled with dignity.
The Sigma Hunt is committed to accountability. The trust that our audience has in our company is critical to our organization’s growth. We are willing to acknowledge our faults and trust in the learning process.
WNO will always be open and honest about the content it creates.
The Human Rights Act of 1998 protects the right to free expression, which includes the right of the audience to receive creative material, information, and ideas without interference, subject to legal constraints. It also acknowledges the right to privacy and family life, as well as the freedom of opinion, conscience, and religion.
The Sigma Hunt attempts to present work that appeals to all audiences, regardless of gender, caste, colour, creed, societal pressures, or political views. WNO supports the interests of all without favouring any individual or group of people.
We offer a range of perspectives to our work and strive for a balanced perspective when dealing with contentious issues.
WNO generates output based on facts, with no conflict of interest or bias toward one side or the other.
Legality and Accountability
The Sigma Hunt strives to create work in its whole, including all associated parts. In order to balance our right to bring the truth to the forefront, we must protect the identity of our sources and those who are vulnerable to danger.
WNO is responsible for ensuring that all of its published work adheres to commonly acknowledged journalism standards, particularly when it comes to the safety of children and women. Unless proven otherwise, we act within the principles established by the law of the land.
The Sigma Hunt is built around the concept of privacy. We do not believe in invading someone’s privacy unless there is a compelling reason to do so. Bringing private behaviour, information, or conversation into public is against the organization’s rules, unless approval is obtained in circumstances when it is required.
We believe in protecting the identity of victims and avoiding using photos that dishonour the deceased while reporting on death, pain, and anguish.
Ethics are crucial in journalism because they guide journalists to perform professionally while adhering to established norms and standards. They’re also essential for remaining faithful to our profession while avoiding bias.
The Sigma Hunt adheres to the principles largely accepted by the press worldwide.

Making Use of the Guidelines
The WNO Editorial Guidelines apply to all of our content, regardless of who generates or makes it, or where and how it is obtained. They define the expectations for everyone involved in creating or presenting the organization’s output. They will assist anyone, in-house or independent, public service or commercial, in dealing with complex editing issues, meeting audience expectations, and producing distinctive and challenging material in accordance with the highest ethical and editorial standards.
Any deviation from the Editorial Guidelines must be editorially justified. It must be discussed and agreed upon by a senior editor in advance.
Responsibilities and Roles
Responsibility for Editing
The Editorial staff is in charge of editing at the WNO.
Producers of Content
Everyone, even freelancers, is expected to understand and follow WNO’s editorial guidelines.
Making Use of the Guidelines
In most circumstances, content creators are expected to utilise their common sense. However, for delicate and contentious problems, they should consult their seniors and, if necessary, seek legal counsel.
Editors must be present to provide direction to content creators as needed.
When editorial quandaries arise, do not be afraid to contact upper management. The more significant and contentious the problem, the greater the demand for referrals.
The content creators should be aware of who to refer to.
Our editorial team is accessible to provide guidance at any time during the course of your project. Any content creator must follow the requirements for all types of material and generate work without violating the editorial policy.
Editorial Policy is also in charge of developing these Editorial Guidelines and other guidelines to ensure WNO content meets the highest editorial standards.
Fact Check On Principles And Practices
The Principles are the requirements that must be met by every WNO production, regardless of time or location.
The Practices, which follow the Principles in each section, are a set of guidelines to follow while publishing content in print or online.
The techniques aid in meeting the editorial values and principles. They are required to guarantee that WNO criteria are followed in accordance with the editorial policy.
It is challenging to create high-quality material and distribute it without bias. We are continuously battling against so much noise out there, regardless of who our target audience is.
WNO adheres to a set of procedures in order to:
Make it informative and timely.
This is perhaps the most difficult rule to fulfil and necessitates a great deal of patience and planning. Our content must serve a purpose other than simply populating our website.
Be the authority figure.
WNO believes in confidently and expertly owning the content. Clean writing, accurate facts, and properly cited quotes will never go out of style.
Avoid sending out brief, ineffective communications.
Search engines may not require a minimum word count, but they do require high-quality material.
We create material that establishes trust with our users so that they, and hence search engines, do not perceive us as spammers.
Engage your reader right away.
WNO focuses on engaging the reader as early as possible by emphasising on why our narrative matters and including relevant and eye-catching photographs and videos. Never bury a connection that the author wants his readers to follow in order to gain a deeper grasp of the story.
Make your story accessible to everyone.
Our material has been designed with mobile in mind. We believe that style and content should be balanced.
Shorter headlines, bullet points, and bolding are all tried and tested methods for making your narrative easy to find and digest on any screen.
Ethics and Guidance
The editorial rules are supplemented with guidance as needed for content publication. The guidance explains the guidelines and provides practical suggestions on how to apply them.
Other Advice and Correction Sources
Many various laws apply to journalism/reporting, ranging from defamation and contempt to obscenity, privacy, incitement, and health and safety. Legal issues may develop not just with what we publish but also with how we create our content, therefore proper legal counsel should be sought as soon as possible.
Legal questions should be referred to their editor (who will discuss them with Legal Guidance), but content producers should not be afraid to seek independent legal advice.
When considering the issues raised by the Editorial Guidelines, it is frequently necessary to distinguish between the law on the one hand, and regulations and WNO ethics on the other. There may be situations where our content is legally safe to produce, but raises ethical concerns for the WNO, particularly when children are involved or privacy is at stake. In such instances, WNO prioritises ethics.
While lawyers can provide legal guidance, the final decision remains editorial.
WNO is concerned with producing work based on facts rather than making judgments. The Sigma Hunt prides on accuracy and responsibility.
Hoaxes and threats
Receiving threats necessitates a prompt response. Threats in any form, including phone calls, emails, text messages, voice messages, and fax notes, must be reported immediately to the appropriate authorities.
Sensitive security information should never be made public.
The Sigma Hunt does not believe in distributing fake news and creating a situation that could be harmful to the general population.
Act Concerning Official Secrets
When reporting a conflict, content producers should seek the Editor or legal counsel to avoid breaking the law. Stories that fall within the scope of the official secrets act must be handled in accordance with the laws.
Reversioning And Reusing
Whatever content is created, The Sigma Hunt has the rights to it. Any group that desires to re-produce our work must request permission from the editor in writing, and if granted, proper attribution to WNO must be given.
When WNO wishes to publish content created by another organisation, it follows the same procedure.
Any effective organisation must deal with conflicts of interest. COI occurs when the credibility of WNO is harmed by the external relationships of content creators.
The Sigma Hunt constantly works for the public good and believes in instilling trust in its readers by ensuring that editorial judgments are free of personal bias and are not influenced by outside interests or political forces.
It is mandatory for our team, whether staff or freelancers, to declare any personal interests that may jeopardise WNO’s integrity or their own work with WNO.
