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 (17:36 on 16 August 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.

Ponte morandi crollato.jpg
File:Ponte morandi crollato.jpg is used on German Wiki's ITN as a wide thumbnail, and it tells the story.

  • Barbara Haviland Minor: Is it necessary or useful to specify vehicles made by OEMs? Why not omit by OEMs from the hook? Will more than a tiny number of vehicles be produced in 2018 by non-OEMs? -- (talk) 01:05, 16 August 2018 (UTC)
  • I made sure the article and hook subscribed to the source per WP:V. We can't assume that "50% of all vehicles" will carry her refrigerant. Yoninah (talk) 14:17, 16 August 2018 (UTC)
  • The source does not use OEM to qualify the 50% number, it says "Currently about 50 percent of all new model vehicles for 2018 are using HFO-1234yf." The phrasing "new vehicles produced by OEMs" is original to the article and redundant. ghost 17:35, 16 August 2018 (UTC)

phonetic language (reading)[edit]

Not a question for the main page. WaltCip (talk) 16:50, 11 August 2018 (UTC)
The following discussion has been closed. Please do not modify it.

Hello, anyone know why English is not phonetic? The reason that i asked is that English is a world wide language and that they are more people in england, usa that have dyslexia then countries with cyrillic alphabet. --Maxie1hoi (talk) 12:29, 11 August 2018 (UTC)

Blame William the Conqueror and the Normans. – Sca (talk) 13:54, 11 August 2018 (UTC)

Happy Birthday, Madonna.[edit]

... but can we not have two photos of her wearing the same outfit on Mainpage at the same time, please? --PFHLai (talk) 00:18, 16 August 2018 (UTC)

Just switched the TFA pic to Eva Peron's portrait for now. Please feel free to make further changes. Cheers! --PFHLai (talk)

Finnish wikipedia problem[edit]

Finnish wikipedia stops wiki-linking to wikiquote(wikisitaatitr)- could wikipedia correct this error?

If you have an issue on the Finnish Wikipedia, you should discuss it there. This page is for discussing issues with the Main Page of the English Wikipedia only. 331dot (talk) 12:26, 16 August 2018 (UTC)

Aretha Franklin[edit]

Since she's a Level 4 vital article, surely her death counts as major news, and not a footnote in the "recent deaths" section?--Leon (talk) 17:12, 16 August 2018 (UTC)

There's currently a discussion about if the article is of sufficient quality. ~ ONUnicorn(Talk|Contribs)problem solving 17:28, 16 August 2018 (UTC)
