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 (UTC, currently 20:12 on 15 June 2019), 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 with In the news[edit]

  • I have boldly move back 2018–19 Kivu Ebola outbreak which was previously moved to "epidemic" without discussion. My reasoning is as follows: outbreak is the COMMONNAME in RS. The WHO also favors "outbreak". See [1]. Please change the ITN entry. --- Coffeeandcrumbs 01:50, 15 June 2019 (UTC)

  • I think there was a general consensus to note in the NBA Finals blurb that this is the first time a Canadian team won; this aspect is getting coverage by itself in the media, including outside of North America(BBC). 331dot (talk) 09:53, 15 June 2019 (UTC)

Today's OTD[edit]

A different galloping horse

The image may be linked and italicized Sallie Gardner at a Gallop, although please read the page and see if it is the same image discussed in the OTD caption. A caption on the page says the image used in OTD is a 2006 animation. Randy Kryn (talk) 02:12, 15 June 2019 (UTC)

The moving image on the main page (middle right) was animated in 2006, using different photographs published in 1887. We should link Sallie Gardner at a Gallop, which has a different animation made from the 1878 photographs (top right). (talk) 10:52, 15 June 2019 (UTC)
No one willing to correct this manifest error? Here (bottom right) are some of the 1878 images on which the proper animation was based. Note the absence of white trousers, no cap, differences in the length of the tail etc. It is a shame to be presenting misinformation to our readers. (talk) 12:13, 15 June 2019 (UTC)
Still no one willing to correct this error? What a shame. (talk) 15:32, 15 June 2019 (UTC)
Sorry, response times on this page are usually much slower on the weekends. Done now. howcheng {chat} 15:56, 15 June 2019 (UTC)

Errors in Did you know...[edit]

Current DYK[edit]

Just a heads up, not necessarily an error: an editor had moved Albion plantation to Albion Plantation. I've moved it back, as the article doesn't seem to indicate plantation is part of the name, but I can't be sure until I go check a few things out. --valereee (talk) 15:05, 15 June 2019 (UTC)

Okay, I think it's likely the correct page name is Albion (plantation). I don't want to move it as I can't at the same time edit the DYK. If there's an admin around who could do both, that's probably the solution. Not sure it's crucial, but it's likely technically an error. --valereee (talk) 15:15, 15 June 2019 (UTC)
