Wikipedia-related news is on Wikipedia: Coffee Room (news). The media attention received by Wikipedia in Finnish belongs to the Wikipedia page: Media visibility. The news archive collects news or events for which background information can be found on Wikipedia. Wikipedia is not intended to be a news service. Instead, the Wikipedia News Archive page can provide links to what’s behind the news. To get the most out of this page, it would be a good idea to receive daily news on this page. So, for example, when a new topic comes up in the news, or something new comes up on a topic that has already been added, you could add a mention to it with appropriate links and citations to that page. The news should be put on the day when the event itself took place, not on the day it was reported.
