Main Page error reports

To report an error on today's or tomorrow's Main Page, please add it to the appropriate section below.

  • Where is the error? An exact quote of all or part of the text in question will help.
  • Offer a correction if possible.
  • References are helpful, especially when reporting an obscure factual or grammatical error.
  • Time zones: The current date and time is displayed in Coordinated Universal Time (14:12 on 23 March 2018), not adjusted to your local time zone.
  • Do not use {{edit fully-protected}}, which will not give you a faster response, and in fact causes problems if used here. (See the bottom of this revision for an example.)
  • Done? Once an error has been fixed, or has rotated off the Main Page, or has been acknowledged as not an error, the error report will be removed from this page; please check the page's history for discussion and action taken.
  • No chit-chat: Lengthy discussions should be moved to a suitable location elsewhere.
  • Can you fix the issue yourself? If the error is with the content of an article linked from the main page, consider attempting to fix the problem rather than reporting it here.

TFA today

God should be capitalized only when it refers to the Judeo-Christian deity WP:MOS#Religion. Primergrey (talk) 13:44, 23 March 2018 (UTC)

It's a good idea to take a big step back from trying to copyedit religious beliefs (to match a different set of religious beliefs). The passage you're citing says that we shouldn't capitalize "many gods; the god Woden; saints and prophets". All those examples strike me as different from "creator-God", which to me sounds short for "God, who should be viewed as a creator, not as the God of the Old or New Testaments". I decided to follow the article, until such time as the article was changed; the capitalization has now been changed in one place in the article, but not in the other. It's too soon to know if that capitalization will stick. My two cents: it's very easy to come across as heavy-handed and biased when copyediting in this area, so I like to proceed slowly and methodically. - Dank (push to talk) 14:02, 23 March 2018 (UTC)
I completely agree. It's important to take our time getting things right, which is why the article should not have been featured on the main page until this was addressed. Too late now. Fish+Karate 14:12, 23 March 2018 (UTC)

OTD today

The William McGregor entry today should say "The Football League", rather than "English Football League", as that is what it was founded as. It didn't become the "English Football League" until a couple of years ago as part of a banal rebranding exercise (In my opinion). The Royal C (talk) 11:54, 23 March 2018 (UTC)

No, it should say "the Football League". That is what it said at ERRORS which wasn't correctly addressed. The Rambling Man (talk) 12:05, 23 March 2018 (UTC)
Fixed - should just be the (small t) Football League, which is what it now says. Fish+Karate 14:10, 23 March 2018 (UTC)

According to the Selena list, she released 8 promotional singles and 3 guest appearances (per the infobox and the table). Something's not quite right here. The Rambling Man (talk) 09:17, 23 March 2018 (UTC)

Number of Edits

I just noticed that the Edit Count just hit 827 Million. I think it will hit 1 Billion by the end of 2018... -- —Preceding undated comment added 16:40, 19 March 2018 (UTC)

Place yer bets: Wikipedia:Billionth edit pool. ʍw 16:29, 20 March 2018 (UTC)
There is Wikipedia:Statistics - and it would be amusing if the 1 Billionth edit was on the 6th Million English language article. Jackiespeel (talk) 16:35, 20 March 2018 (UTC)
