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 (09:59 on 25 September 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.

  • "Dominion Day" in NZ - the article itself says "Dominion Day was occasionally celebrated in New Zealand..." and goes on to talk about its possible revival. Is this actually a thing? The Rambling Man (talk) 06:14, 25 September 2017 (UTC)
  • Parthenon - multiple referencing issues. The Rambling Man (talk) 06:18, 25 September 2017 (UTC)
  • Until such a time that Wikipedia recognises only one or the other, for World War I/First World War, we should acknowledge and respect the target article, so in this case it should be "World War I", not "First World War" for the "Battle of Polygon Wood" blurb. The Rambling Man (talk) 06:20, 25 September 2017 (UTC)
  • August Frank - while not orange tagged (yet), the sentence and commuting section makes some pretty bold and unreferenced claims about his sentencing, the commutation, his release and death. Quite important I'd say, given the context. The Rambling Man (talk) 06:26, 25 September 2017 (UTC)
  • Lynn Anderson - inadequate referencing for discog. The Rambling Man (talk) 06:34, 25 September 2017 (UTC)

  • Two architect hooks in one set, and inconsistently formatted? Not an error per se but the sort of thing that is normally avoided before being promoted to a queue. The Rambling Man (talk) 08:15, 24 September 2017 (UTC)
    • Two architect hooks is indeed not ideal, but I don't understand how they are inconsistently formatted? Thryduulf (talk) 00:00, 25 September 2017 (UTC)
  • Why is an obviously-badly-compressed JPEG the photo for DYK instead of, say, the SVG of the San Tome and Principe flag? KMF (talk) 03:51, 25 September 2017 (UTC)
  • 2nd hook St Collins Lane - has been moved to St. Collins Lane. Please add fullstop (St.) and update link. Thanks JennyOz (talk) 04:42, 25 September 2017 (UTC)
