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 (20:20 on 22 June 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.

  • Red Bull Air Race – Photo of an airplane is labeled "Péter Besenyei," who was flying the plane. (He's not visible in the photo.) Sca (talk) 13:14, 22 June 2018 (UTC)
    What shall I change the caption to? — Martin (MSGJ · talk) 13:24, 22 June 2018 (UTC)
    "Airplane piloted by Péter Besenyei in 2015" would fit, and actually be meaningful. Fish+Karate 13:37, 22 June 2018 (UTC)
Actually, according to winners list, he was flying it in 2003. I'd suggest something generic, such as, "A Red Bull racer." Sca (talk) 14:07, 22 June 2018 (UTC)
Or, "Péter Besenyei's plane." Please fix. Sca (talk) 20:20, 22 June 2018 (UTC)
