Wikipedia:In the news/Candidates

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to navigation Jump to search

This page provides a forum for editors to suggest items for inclusion on In the news (ITN), a protected template on the Main Page, 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. Archives of past nominations can be found here.

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.

A blurb is a one sentence summary of the news story. An alternate suggestion for the blurb is called an altblurb, and any more suggestions get labelled alt1, alt2, etc. A blurb needs at least one target article, highlighted in bold; reviewers check the quality of that article and whether it is updated, and whether reliable sources demonstrate the significance of the event. Other articles can also be linked. The Ongoing line is for regularly updated articles which cover events that remain in the news over a longer period of time. RD stands for the "recent deaths" line, and can include any living thing whose death was recently announced. In some cases, recent deaths may need additional explanation as provided by a blurb; this is decided by consensus.

How to nominate an item[edit]

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).
    • Do not add sections for new dates. These are automatically generated (at midnight UTC) by a bot; creating them manually breaks this process.
  • 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 {{ITN candidate}} 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 {{ITN note}} to the corresponding article's talk page.

Purge this page to update the cache

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.

Headers[edit]

  • Items that have been posted or pulled from the main page are generally marked with (Posted) or (Pulled) in the item's subject so it is clear they are no longer active.
  • Items can also be marked as (Ready) when the article is both updated and there seems to be a consensus to post. The posting admin, however, should always judge the update and the consensus to post themselves. If you find an entry that you don't feel is ready to post is marked (Ready), you should remove the mark in the header.

Voicing an opinion on an item[edit]

  • Format your comment to contain "support" or "oppose", and include a rationale for your choice. In particular, address the notability of the event, the quality of the article, and whether it has been updated.

Please do...[edit]

  1. Pick an older item to review near the bottom of this page, before the eligibility runs out and the item scrolls off the page and gets abandoned in the archive, unused and forgotten.
  2. Review an item even if it has already been reviewed by another user. Maybe the previous reviewer has missed a problem, or an identified problem has now been fixed. Piling on the list of "support!" votes may also help administrators identify items that are ready for promotion to the ITN template on MainPage.
  3. Point out problematic areas in the nominated article and, if appropriate, suggest how to fix them. If you know exactly what to do, by all means, go ahead and fix it as you see fit.

Please do not...[edit]

  1. Add simple "support!" or "oppose!" votes without including your reasons. Similarly, curt replies such as "who?", "meh", or "duh!" are usually not helpful. Instead, explain the reasons why you think the item meets or does not meet the ITN inclusion criteria so a consensus can be reached.
  2. Oppose an item solely because the event is only relating to a single country, or failing to relate to one. This applies to a high percentage of the content we post and is generally unproductive.
  3. Accuse other editors of supporting, opposing or nominating due to a personal bias (such as ethnocentrism). Conflicts of interest are not handled at ITN.
  4. Comment on a story without first reading the relevant article(s).
  5. Oppose a recurring item here because you disagree with the recurring items criteria. The criteria can be discussed at the relevant talk page.
  6. Use the discussion section of an item as a forum for your own political or personal beliefs. Such comments are irrelevant to the outcome of a nomination and are potentially disruptive.

Suggesting updates[edit]

A posted ITNC item that needs correcting can be addressed in two ways:

  • For simple updates, such as updated death tolls in a disaster, linking issues, spelling or grammar corrections, or otherwise anything that does not change the intent of the blurb should be discussed at WP:ERRORS in the ITN section.
  • For more complex updates that involve a major change in the blurb's intent, that should be discussed as part of the current ITNC nomination.

The fire should probably be included as a separate bolded link within the blurb, as it's notable in its own right. Although it's too short to pass ITN on quality at the moment.  — Amakuru (talk) 17:42, 27 November 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Here's the thing - the fire doesn't have long-term notability compared to the protests, so there's no reason a separate article on it should be made. It should be part of the protest article. This is where editors tend to lose focus of NOTNEWS because they want to be first to create that new article. Masem (t) 23:32, 27 November 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • Support per above Editor 5426387 (talk) 23:26, 27 November 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • Added to blurb: Following a deadly fire in Ürümqi..., which hopefully addresses earlier "convoluted" concern. Since no consensus to also bold the fire (for now), I did not go into details about the casualties either. Notability concerns of the fire page can be addressed through WP:AFD, if necessary, but it appears reasonable to briefly address "why?" in the protest blurb.—Bagumba (talk) 04:30, 28 November 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
    Reverted by Masem, the nominator.[1]Bagumba (talk) 04:32, 28 November 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
    I explained at errors, but the fire did not cause the protests, as the change you made implied. The protests had been happening, the fire spurred them on. That's why I don't think treating the fire separately is a good idea. --Masem (t) 04:34, 28 November 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Nominator's comments: First time I've ever done this. Not sure if this is how you do it. But we just had a helicopter crash close one of our major interstates during holiday traffic and two news station employees died. No one knows why it came down, witnesses just say it was in trouble. Because it was 2 news station employees killed this is all over the news right now - CNN, New York Times, Associate Press, you name it. User:EEBuchanan 03:51, 23 November 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • EEBuchanan Thank you for the nomination; I have reformatted it. Please propose a proposed "blurb" to post in the space to the right of "blurb =" in the above template, and include a link to a reliable source next to "sources =".

  • Spencer Realized I messed it up as soon as I hit publish. Trying to fix but there keep being conflicting edits. I am adding my references now. EEBuchanan (talk) 04:02, 23 November 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Oppose - I don't see that a small helicopter crash with such a low death toll is notable. And I see no coverage about this except locally. In recent months, we are averaging at least a helicopter crash a day, and I've never seen one ITN before. Nfitz (talk) 04:35, 23 November 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Nfitz You may be right. Still, It's on CNN, New York Times, Associated Press, and some others I haven't had time to link yet. That's not exactly local. The thing is less the crash and more the fact the news company employees involved, that's why people are interested. A crash is one thing. A helicopter crashing and killing two news employees, and their colleagues having to report it on air on their own station, is a bit different/out of the ordinary. Plus a lot of interviewed witnesses are saying the pilot deliberately steered into the embankment, possibly to avoid traffic and nearby buildings - that also seems a bit unusual. EEBuchanan (talk) 04:37, 23 November 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
How is not local to only one country? And surely most of the other, daily, helicopter crashes are more notable, given the circumstances under which they happen. What is internationally notable here? Nfitz (talk) 05:12, 23 November 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Nfitz Fair enough. As mentioned never done this before so wasn't sure how it worked. Thanks!

  • Oppose Not quite a commercial passenger aircraft crash, it still involved a crash while people aboard the flight were doing their jobs akin to military disasters, and thus not stuff we cover. Even without that, this is a very minor event, and just because it is getting a burst of coverage now does not make it a long-term encyclopedic topic; its of very narrow scope. --Masem (t) 05:12, 23 November 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
    MasemFair enough. Like I said before, never done this before (nominated one recent death but no ITN before unless it was a long time ago and I forgot) so I wasn't sure if it would go or not. Figured it couldn't hurt to ask.

Comparable other updates like North Korea's defeat of Italy in the 1966 World Cup and Algeria's defeat of West Germany in the 1982 World Cup don't have standalone articles, suggesting limited long-term notability. As slight a caveat to that, there is an article on the Disgrace of Gijón, but that merely manages Algeria's win as part of the background for said match.

    Disagree, per WP:BURO. If the only rationale for waiting is to avoid making people unhappy they didn't get to contribute to the discussion, then that's a non-rationale. WP:SNOW also applies to things that don't have a snowball's chance in hell of not being posted. This was posted appropriately at the time it was posted.

    There was never any doubt that a disaster of this magnitude would meet the significance threshold. All that needed to be determined at that point was whether the article was of sufficient length and quality, and had been updated.

  • Support Presidential election, I would go with alternative blurb.— Preceding unsigned comment added by Cherrell410 (talkcontribs) 02:29, 2022 November 20 (UTC)
  • Oppose This is orange-tagged for good reason; it needs extensive copy-editing. This is a big job because the page is huge. But it doesn't actually have a section with the results, let alone prose about them. To find out what actually happened, I looked at the news coverage. There's nothing on my usual sources of BBC and NYT so I read the report on Al Jazeera which seems quite good. The incumbent won by a landslide, of course, and it's amusing that the runner-up was "against everyone".
BTW, Al Jazeera also reports how the name change of the capital to Nursultan worked out. That was nominated in 2019 but we didn't run it. Just as well, the name has recently been changed back to Astana. "It holds the Guinness World Record for the city with the most name changes."
