Main Page error reports[edit]

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 (06:00 on 17 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.

OTD today[edit]

"A fire in the Winter Palace (pictured) in Saint Petersburg broke out, partially damaging the palace and killing thirty guardsmen."

"partially damaging" sounds strange to me. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 04:49, 17 December 2017 (UTC)

OTD tomorrow[edit]

  • " siege, Ostrogoths led by Totila sacked Rome." why not "the" Ostrogoths? The Rambling Man (talk) 21:21, 16 December 2017 (UTC)
  • "outside Harrods Department Store in " Harrods is Harrods, why the need to obfuscate it then pipe it back to Harrods? The Rambling Man (talk) 21:27, 16 December 2017 (UTC)
  • Erwin Piscator - tagged, one section (at least) is lacking sufficient referencing. The Rambling Man (talk) 21:34, 16 December 2017 (UTC)

General discussion[edit]

Suggestion:Use this Talk space[edit]

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)


Remove Pai's face from the front page. Thank you.

  • No. Wikipedia is not censored.--WaltCip (talk) 15:33, 16 December 2017 (UTC)
    • Can we at least hurry up & get a new ITN article up already? I'm tired of my blood pressure rising every time I visit the front page. JanderVK (talk) 16:49, 16 December 2017 (UTC)
      • That is still not a valid reason to replace it to "hurry up & get a new ITN article up already". It is an important news story happening at the moment. Aoba47 (talk) 00:38, 17 December 2017 (UTC)

German Wikipedia[edit]

I urgently need help with mobbing in German Wikipedia! Can anybody provide some assistance with this issue? I will have to quit for today but I'll be back tomorrow. Hoping for support I remain with my best wishes--Herfrid (talk) 22:52, 16 December 2017 (UTC)

Add the

It obviously belongs on the main page. 2601:2C1:C280:3EE0:8D50:F5F3:A1EC:7855 (talk) 04:44, 17 December 2017 (UTC)
