|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: This is historic because it's 1) going to the moon, and 2) it's the first non-government rocket going to the moon. I think in a few months hopefully when it lands we can also have a blurb, but just a successful launch is noteworthy enough. I think we can work on the blurb, mentioning Google prize, etc. Sir Joseph (talk) 02:04, 22 February 2019 (UTC)
Nominator's comments: Nashville music legend who helped launch the careers of Dolly Parton, Roy Orbison and founded Monument Records. Country Music Hall of Fame (2016). CoatCheck (talk) 23:39, 21 February 2019 (UTC)
Nominator's comments: The headline in the (German) obituary translates to "With Alberich to world fame" - live broadcast from the Met, and performance in the reopening of the Semperoper. - I found the article as an undersourced stub, it had been longer but that was copyright violation. --Gerda Arendt (talk) 20:59, 21 February 2019 (UTC)
Nominator's comments: 'Caliphate' being territorially defeated after 5 years is major news. Adding this post pre-emptively to avoid this being posted late (as was the case for North Macedonia.) When this happens (which it will per official sources, this is not WP:CRYSTALBALL) I suggest posting it as soon as the article is swiftly updated. Nice4What (talk) 18:02, 16 February 2019 (UTC)
Nominator's comments: Article is well-sourced but a bit short. Described in the news as the first mammalian extinction directly attributable to climate change. Vanamonde (Talk) 18:48, 20 February 2019 (UTC)
Nominator's comments: Article needs some work, but doesn't appear to be terrible otherwise (not overly long and nothing that would be too hard to source - will work on). Nohomersryan (talk) 19:37, 19 February 2019 (UTC)
Nominator's comments: Please, let us try as much as possible to feature women and people of color. This article needs work. Nominating now to solicit team work. --- Coffeeandcrumbs 17:55, 18 February 2019 (UTC)
Nominator's comments: I think Li died on February 16. The bot failed to archive and create new date section at midnight. The article is referenced and ready to post IMO. --- Coffeeandcrumbs 06:23, 16 February 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:
