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 07:59 on 25 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.

Today's POTD[edit]

  • Henry VIII links to a redirect; also needs to be nowrapped. — RAVENPVFF · talk · 16:12, 24 June 2019 (UTC)
    • {{nowrap}} fixed. I have never been given a good explanation for why we avoid redirects - that's the whole point of redirects, IMHO - but I know other admins do avoid them, and one of them will no doubt be along to fix the two instances reported on this page. --Floquenbeam (talk) 19:29, 24 June 2019 (UTC)
      • @Floquenbeam: Outdated now, but a reason to avoid redirects from the main page is that they are often little watched, so one could redirect Henry VIII to any page one chose with little chance of it being swiftly reverted. Espresso Addict (talk) 02:15, 25 June 2019 (UTC)
        @Espresso Addict: According to the article, Royal Mail doesn't seem to take a definite article before it. This should also be the case in the POTD blurb. — RAVENPVFF · talk · 04:57, 25 June 2019 (UTC)
In the UK, the Royal Mail is usually referred to thus; see for example the body of the article, under history. I will add "the" to the article lead in a mo. ETA having done that, I think "the Royal Mail" is usual when referring to the service in abstract or to the pre-privatisation entity; however "Royal Mail" is acceptable when referring specifically to the privatised company, essentially as a shorthand for "Royal Mail Group plc". As an aside, I think it's a very odd blurb for the painting, which seems more closely related to mail coach. Espresso Addict (talk) 05:03, 25 June 2019 (UTC)

Please comment on the discussion at WT:TFA about the Main Page for 50th anniversary of Apollo 11. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Coffeeandcrumbs (talkcontribs) 13:50, 9 June 2019 (UTC)

Radarsat Constellation Launch[edit]

Maybe add a page for the F9 launch on the 12th of June :) JayJay Aviation (talk) 19:41, 15 June 2019 (UTC)

The article RADARSAT Constellation already exists. Regardless, this has nothing to do with the Main Page. Modest Genius talk 12:52, 20 June 2019 (UTC)
Perhaps JayJay Aviation actually meant an entry in In the news. --184.248.65.126 (talk) 00:40, 21 June 2019 (UTC)
