The first thing we do every day at The Stream ahead of our morning pitch meeting is check what you, our online community, want us to cover. Every day, we get story ideas from around the world.

We can’t cover everything you send to us, but a lot of our content is generated from your suggestions. There were so many big stories this year, but here are just five community pitched hashtags that all became Stream episodes.

Thanks to all those who pitched these stories and continue to tell us what news is breaking in their part of the world. We wouldn’t be the Stream without your voice, and we look forward to hearing from you again in the New Year!
