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 (01:58 on 15 December 2017), 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.

Errors in In the news

This isn't exactly an "error", per se, but someone on Commons vandalized the description for the Ajit Pai image and I can't roll it back now because it's protected. Someone with the authority should roll it back. --XenonNSMB (talk, contribs) 00:32, 15 December 2017 (UTC)

That has been reverted by Elcobbola. Art LaPella (talk) 01:22, 15 December 2017 (UTC)
  • The bold linked net neutrality article is full of CN tags or is just straight up missing refs. Posting was premature. --CosmicAdventure (talk) 00:48, 15 December 2017 (UTC)

OTD today

Martyred_Intellectuals_Day entire section is unreferenced, one link is dead and unverifiable. I am surprised this was let through. Sir Joseph (talk) 16:42, 14 December 2017 (UTC)

WP:POINT much? The Rambling Man (talk) 17:10, 14 December 2017 (UTC)
No, it's on my watch page and I am surprised that you allowed this through. The page is not fit for the main page and I would have expected you or Mhossein to tag it as such. Sir Joseph (talk) 17:33, 14 December 2017 (UTC)
I am not responsible for "allowing" anything through. But you are proving your point nicely. The Rambling Man (talk) 17:45, 14 December 2017 (UTC)
Care to actually address concerns on the article? And why should I not be surprised by you not posting about this? You post almost every day here about errors and why would it not be surprising to see that you didn't post anything about this article? Sir Joseph (talk) 17:50, 14 December 2017 (UTC)
Oops!! The Rambling Man (talk) 17:55, 14 December 2017 (UTC)

General discussion

Suggestion:Use this Talk space

Suggest using this talk space for directing general discussion that comes in. This is because its visible from the Main Page, and if people aren't just interested in the Main Page or in Wikipedia in general, they are interested in finding other talk avenues like WP:Village Pump and other more topically specific places. At least spruce up its direction and access to the main talk channels because they aren't visually well separated from the Main Page stuff. Kiipanraken (talk) 03:51, 13 December 2017 (UTC)

The beige box at the top of this page does have a link to the Village Pump, and to several other places. Do you have a more specific suggestion? Art LaPella (talk) 04:59, 13 December 2017 (UTC)
Yes, thank you for asking. Something where the elements that deal with the Main Page are separate from the elements that deal with the project, so that each are featured, but separately. Note, was tinkering with Talk:Main Page/HelpBox/Draft. -Kiipanraken (talk) 06:19, 13 December 2017 (UTC)
Perhaps immediately below the 'General discussion' header there should be 'Do you want The Village Pump (for general discussions)' - the box above does tend to 'float out of the viewing space' when editing the talk page. Jackiespeel (talk) 14:38, 14 December 2017 (UTC)
