Administrator instructions

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 (08:55 on 20 November 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.

Errors in the summary of today's or tomorrow's featured article

TFA today

From Wikipedia:Today's featured article/November 20, 2018, the phrasing "Despite negative critical reception, Over the Rainbow reached number one in three countries, and has sold over 250,000 copies worldwide." incorrectly implies that reviews are in some way connected to commercial performance. Somebody please change this as we shouldn't mislead our readers like that. SNUGGUMS (talk / edits) 04:17, 20 November 2018 (UTC)

Okay, you just changed the phrasing in the article from "despite" to "while" ... let's give it, I don't know, 3 or 4 hours ... if it isn't reverted, then it's fine to change it in the blurb. But ... some people read "while" to mean "whereas", which is only a hair away from "despite". Just sayin'. - Dank (push to talk) 04:58, 20 November 2018 (UTC)

Errors in today's or tomorrow's featured picture

POTD today

  • The comma should be dropped in "Trinity College, Dublin" to match where the link goes. We have an article on the Book of Kells (a featured article, in fact) that should be linked. And the "Libary" in the last sentence should be lowercase. Modulus12 (talk) 03:33, 19 November 2018 (UTC)
    Seems the article was moved a few months ago from the form with a comma All very modern dispensing with unnecessary punctuation isnt it but should category:Trinity College, Dublin be moved too
    Trinity College Library uses the uppercase L so there is a case for using a capital when referring to the Library as an institution but we should be consistent (talk) 08:50, 19 November 2018 (UTC)
  • Can someone please link Book of Kells in the featured picture summary. Thanks. Randy Kryn (talk) 05:00, 20 November 2018 (UTC)
