|Welcome to In The News. Please read the guidelines. Admin instructions are here.|
This page provides a forum for editors to suggest items for inclusion in Template:In the news (ITN), a protected Main Page template, as well as the forum for discussion of candidates. This is not the page to report errors in the ITN section on the Main Page—please go to the appropriate section at WP:ERRORS.
This candidates page is integrated with the daily pages of Portal:Current events. Under each daily section header below is the transcluded Portal:Current events items for that day (with a light green header). Each day's portal page is followed by a subsection for suggestions and discussion.
How to nominate an item
In order to suggest a candidate:
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.

Nominator's comments: Yes, this article just got created today, but it's been one of those people that we likely could have had an article before on GNG notability (eg using pre-April 2019 news searching),
and while it is presently at "Death of..." we're talking about getting it moved to either his online name or his proper name. He likely died on the 19th or 20th (apparent suicide, still investigating) but body was only found this morning. Masem (t) 17:16, 25 June 2019 (UTC)
Nominator's comments: Composer who grew up and was trained in Budapest, emigrated to Vienna, where he became a pianist and professor at the Academy. - I worked on his article in 2011, others before and after. I updated the existing refs, and will add more from obituaries. --Gerda Arendt (talk) 13:36, 25 June 2019 (UTC)
Nominator's comments: I think this is notable because of the controversy around the initial election. I think that with >99% of the vote counted, it is safe to put on the main page. StudiesWorld (talk) 20:41, 23 June 2019 (UTC)
Nominator's comments: In my opinion, this should have been made an ongoing item when it was originally posted earlier this June. Keep in mind that the criterion of being "regularly updated" does not mean every single day must contain a significant update. Just "regular" updates are sufficient. The article has described significant demonstrations on: June 6, June 9, June 12, June 14, June 16, June 21. That seems pretty "regular" to me. And with the government's continual refusal to retract the bill, there is no apparent end in sight. Merlinsorca 19:10, 21 June 2019 (UTC)
Nominator's comments: I'm surprised there's nothing on the main page re biggest intl story of the moment. It appears that the shoot down is better covered on WP than the reported aborted US strike today, so makes a better ITN candidate. Optophone (talk) 18:36, 21 June 2019 (UTC)
If you look at the edit history you'll see changes every day but that isn't the same as updates every day. There are fixing refs, content reorgs, clarifications, but no substantial updates beyond death toll counter. This event has been "ongoing" since 2018 -- over a year. Are we really going to have it in the box until some period when no one is diagnosed as having contracted Ebola? This was a WP:MINIMUMDEATHS posting that should never have been ongoing, is not being continuously updated and needs to come out. --LaserLegs (talk) 23:07, 20 June 2019 (UTC)
Nominator's comments: The heat wave is one of the India's longest and has broken or challenged multiple temperature records, and left at least 184 dead. I have yet to find an official toll that combines deaths from all states of India, but the death toll is definitely 100-250. Plus, there was previous support for including this article as a blurb here. Merlinsorca 13:22, 19 June 2019 (UTC)
Nominators often include links to external websites and other references in discussions on this page. It is usually best to provide such links using the inline URL syntax
[http://example.com] rather than using
<ref></ref> tags, because that keeps all the relevant information in the same place as the nomination without having to jump to this section, and facilitates the archiving process.
For the times when
<ref></ref> tags are being used, here are their contents:
