|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: Pell is now the highest-ranking church official ever convicted of a sexual offense. This case has attracted worldwide attention, despite a gag order from an Australian court.06:55, 15 December 2018 (UTC)
Nominator's comments: Not convinced of this one myself but putting it up for discussion for a wider view. The boundary is fairly arbitrary and it has only crossed the American-defined boundary which is lower than the Kármán line, but it is still a milestone in manned spaceflight - Dumelow (talk) 17:30, 13 December 2018 (UTC)
Nominator's comments: Sitting Deputy Minister of Defence in Namibia. I have overhauled the article, it remains a little on the short side but I will look to expand if any new information comes in the obituaries - Dumelow (talk) 16:22, 12 December 2018 (UTC)
Nominator's comments: Designed the first computer-driven word processor, died on the 8th but not reported until the 10th. Article is mostly good but a few more citations are needed.[ Thryduulf (talk) 21:39, 12 December 2018 (UTC)
Nominator's comments: Beyond being an ITNR and promoting geographic diversity, this final has been one of the top sports stories of the year due to the delays/change of venue for the second leg. SounderBruce 22:03, 9 December 2018 (UTC)

For the times when <ref></ref> tags are being used, here are their contents:
