Wikipedia:Main Page/Errors

Administrator instructions

To report an error in current or upcoming Main Page content, please add it to the appropriate section below.

  • Where is the error? An exact quotation of all or part of the text in question will help.
  • Please offer a correction if possible.
  • References are helpful, especially when reporting an obscure factual or grammatical error.
  • Time zones: The Main Page runs on Coordinated Universal Time (UTC, currently 05:56 on 3 July 2022), not adjusted to your local time zone.
  • Do not use {{edit fully-protected}} on this page, which will not give you a faster response; it is unnecessary as this page is not protected and will in fact cause problems if used here, as this is not a talk page. (See the bottom of this revision for an example.)
  • Done? Once an error has been fixed, rotated off the Main Page or acknowledged not to be an error, the report will be removed from this page; please check the revision history for a record of any discussion or action taken, as no archives are kept.
  • No chit-chat: Lengthy discussions should be moved to a suitable location elsewhere, such as the relevant article or project talk page.
  • Please respect other editors. A real person wrote the blurb or hook for which you are suggesting a fix, or a real person noticed what they honestly believe is an issue with the blurb or hook that you wrote. Everyone is interested in creating the best Main Page possible; with the compressed time frame, there is sometimes more stress and more opportunities to step on toes. Please be civil to fellow users.
  • Can you resolve the problem yourself? If the error lies primarily in the content of an article linked from the Main Page, consider first attempting to fix the problem there before reporting it here if necessary. Text on the Main Page generally defers to the articles with bolded links. In addition, upcoming content is typically only protected from editing 24 hours before its scheduled appearance; in most cases, you can be bold and fix any issues yourself.

Errors with "In the news"Edit

  • Not necessarily an error, but Yair Lapid's becoming Prime Minister is in the greater context of Knesset voting to dissolve itself and Bennett's resignation. TartarTorte 13:33, 1 July 2022 (UTC)
    The focus of the discussion at WP:ITN/C was the change of leader, which is an ITN/R automatic listing. I think that expanding to discuss the government breakdown issues would need a separate discussion and consensus. Does that event even have a page?  — Amakuru (talk) 18:36, 1 July 2022 (UTC)

I've updated the figures in the article's infobox and lede to match the most up-to-date numbers from BNBP, the relevant Indonesian agency. I'll now sort out the numbers in the "Damage" section. Mikenorton (talk) 15:21, 2 July 2022 (UTC)
Article update complete - someone else will need to update what's on the main page. Mikenorton (talk) 15:33, 2 July 2022 (UTC)
Cheers Mike, shame we don't have any admins around here who can address these main page issues, some of which have been raised for more than 24 hours now. The Rambling Man (Keep wearing the mask...) 17:15, 2 July 2022 (UTC)
