Main Page error reportsEdit

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 17:44 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.

  • the Ten, Nine, and Ace: as common nouns, they probably shouldn't be capitalised. — RAVENPVFF · talk · 10:13, 25 June 2019 (UTC)
  • Not an error but certainly an improvement: change "that pieces of the small tree Erythrina berteroana are used to make living fence posts?" to "that cut branches of the small tree Erythrina berteroana are used to make living fence posts?" --valereee (talk) 11:51, 25 June 2019 (UTC)
      Done both.  — Amakuru (talk) 12:56, 25 June 2019 (UTC)
    If only we had some sort of word for a living fence. "Hedge" sounds nice, I wonder if that would do? DuncanHill (talk) 14:47, 25 June 2019 (UTC)
    The hook is kind of thinly sourced, but the way I interpret it, this isn't the same as a hedge; from the grainy picture in the source, it looks like the plant's trunk is used as a post, and then normal fencing materials are used as the fencing between. --Floquenbeam (talk) 15:13, 25 June 2019 (UTC)
    In other words, I think it's living (fence posts), not (living fence) posts. --Floquenbeam (talk) 15:13, 25 June 2019 (UTC)
    The reference has "The living fence has considerable aesthetic value", "It is planted as live posts, fence and live supports for yams (Dioscorea alata) and chayote (Sechium edule)", and itself cites "Productivity of an Erythrina berteroana live fence in Turrialba, Costa Rica." So not entirely clear if living-fence posts or living fence-posts. DuncanHill (talk) 15:18, 25 June 2019 (UTC)
    Looking at the reference again, I think I read too much into the photo; it doesn't look like the fence is attached to the trees; I think the fact that there's a fence in the photo is a coincidence. There doesn't appear to be visual evidence of what they actually mean, so I'll back off a little and agree, I don't know if it's living-fence posts or living fence-posts. --Floquenbeam (talk) 15:26, 25 June 2019 (UTC)
    Source says It is planted as live posts, fence and live supports for vining vegetable production. It's definitely not saying it's anything like a hedge. Hedges and living fences are similar ideas, and there may be significant overlap, but they're not the same. Not all hedges would qualify as living fences, and not all living fences would qualify as hedges. --valereee (talk) 15:54, 25 June 2019 (UTC)

Radarsat Constellation LaunchEdit

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. -- (talk) 00:40, 21 June 2019 (UTC)
