Good Day Everyone,

I am the founder, webmaster and editor of http://worldfreenews.com

The site went live Feb 25th and I requested inclusion into Google News.  I received a ticket and replied back to it as requested.  After a nearly a month with no reply, I resubmitted last week, being sure to be as detailed as possible without reproducing my entire site map on the form.  Where it asks you to list the site URL's, I gave all relevant pages (about us, contact us, etc.) and listed all top level menu categories (news, entertainment, business, living, sports, opinion, etc.). 

Please take a look at my site and tell me if there is something preventing the Google News team from responding.  I have combed through all the requirements and the site meets them all.

The tickets for submission are
Re: [#772069993] Please Include us in Google News (original)
Re: [#784343150] Inclusion in Google News (most recent)

I have read elsewhere in these forums that I should remind them by replying back to the ticket again but, I don't want to annoy them and further delay the site's inclusion.

I have also tried to submit a news sitemap via Webmaster Tools but, I get the following error:
Unknown news site
Your Sitemap is on a site that is not in the Google News database.

Any help you can give me is very much appreciated,

Best Regards.

Why do I feel like a prisoner in the Tower of London communicating with a fellow prisoner via unheard taps on a rock wall?
