How to nominate an item
In order to suggest a candidate:
- Update an article to be linked to from the blurb to include the recent developments, or find an article that has already been updated.
- Find the correct section below for the date of the event (not the date nominated) in UTC.
- Do not add sections for new dates. These are automatically generated (at midnight UTC) by a bot; creating them manually breaks this process. Remember, we use UTC dates.
- Nominate the blurb for ITN inclusion under the "Suggestions" subheading for the date, emboldening the link in the blurb to the updated article. Use a level 4 header (====) when doing so.
- Preferably use the template to nominate the article related to the event in the news. Make sure that you include a reference from a verifiable, reliable secondary source. Press releases are not acceptable. The suggested blurb should be written in simple present tense.
- Adding an explanation why the event should be posted greatly increases the odds of posting.
- Please consider alerting editors to the nomination by adding the template to the corresponding article's talk page.
There are criteria which guide the decision on whether or not to put a particular item on In the news, based largely on the extensiveness of the updated content and the perceived significance of the recent developments. These are listed at WP:ITN.
Submissions that do not follow the guidelines at Wikipedia:In the news will not be placed onto the live template.
