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 to speed things up.
  • References can be helpful, especially when reporting an obscure factual or grammatical error.
  • Time zones: Note that the current date and time is displayed in Coordinated Universal Time (12:58 on 28 Apr 2015), not adjusted to your local time zone.
  • Do not {{edit 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, 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.

For technical reasons, "#" redirects here.[edit]

For technical reasons, "#" redirects here. For the number sign, see Number sign.

This warning should be displayed on the main page. People will be confused otherwise.  Supuhstar *  22:26, 27 April 2015 (UTC)

I can see little merit in adding such a note - it will add clutter, and I find it hard to believe that readers regularly search for '#'. AndyTheGrump (talk) 22:32, 27 April 2015 (UTC)
  • I agree that it is unlikely "#" is used as a search term enough to warrant a permanent spot on the Main Page of Wikipedia, seen by millions who likely aren't searching for "#". 331dot (talk) 22:37, 27 April 2015 (UTC)
I agree it isn't worth a hatnote. We shouldn't have one for Home page or William Main Page either. If somebody should make a hit song/album/book/film called Main Page then we can discuss what to do. PrimeHunter (talk) 23:19, 27 April 2015 (UTC)
Perhaps if there was a note on the bottom of the page, it might be worth it. That's a big "might" though. Eman235/talk 03:38, 28 April 2015 (UTC)

Baltimore Riots[edit]

Nothing on the main page about the riots? --dashiellx (talk) 12:15, 28 April 2015 (UTC)

This was discussed at WP:ITNC and the discussion was closed with no consensus. If you feel that there have been enough new developments you could make a new nomination but I would suggest reviewing the discussions first- and keep in mind that even the Ferguson protests which had a nationwide element were not posted. 331dot (talk) 12:19, 28 April 2015 (UTC)
