Main Page error reports[edit]

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 quote 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 11:34 on 14 June 2021), not adjusted to your local time zone.
  • Do not use {{edit fully-protected}}, which will not give you a faster response; it is unnecessary as this page is not protected and in fact causes problems if used here. (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 page's revision history for any discussion or action taken, as no archives are kept.
  • No chit-chat: Lengthy discussions should be moved to a suitable location elsewhere.
  • Please respect other editors. A real person wrote the blurb or hook to 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 bolded articles. 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.

There are eight different versions of the half eagle image and unless really necessary, fiddling around with the captions would be a minefield. Cwmhiraeth (talk) 05:25, 14 June 2021 (UTC)

General discussion[edit]

sidebar link wikisource[edit]

Has been showing both "Wikisource" and "Multilingual Wikisource" lately. Should be only either one. 184.98.3.96 (talk) 20:27, 30 May 2021 (UTC)

It was added at Wikidata in [1] by Liuxinyu970226. At Wikipedia:Teahouse/Questions/Archive 1100#Request to remove "Multilingual Wikisource" link from Main page template he opposed removal at Wikidata. PrimeHunter (talk) 21:36, 30 May 2021 (UTC)
I don't feel strongly about it but it's not completely silly to list both. The multilingual Wikisource is a distinct project of its own, not just a front page, and both the English and multilingual Wikisource have material relevant to English-speaking Wikipedia readers. Texts in multiple languages, which might include English, are often found at the multilingual Wikisource: see Stelae of Pepi-Sennefer for a random example. @PrimeHunter: You mention in the discussion you linked that Wikipedia, Wiktionary, and Wikisource are the only projects with multilingual front pages—Wikisource is as far as I know the only one with a multilingual project, not just a front page. —Nizolan (talk · c.) 13:02, 31 May 2021 (UTC)
Multilingual Wikisource is not a distinct project (at least that's not what is linked to): The link is to the front page of wikisource and when you're there and click on "English," you get to the exact same page that you get when you click on the wikisource-link that's also on the sidebar. You don't do that kind of double-listing for wiktionary, wikivoyage, wikinews, wikiquote, wikiveristy (they all have front pages with the logo in the middle and language-links in a circle). 184.98.3.96 (talk) 15:08, 31 May 2021 (UTC)
No, it is a distinct project: I already gave an example of a page there, and more info is available at the Multilingual Wikisource Community Portal. (Not to suggest that's a reason to keep the link, just explaining—and we can't really do anything from Wikipedia about them using the language index as their front page.) —Nizolan (talk · c.) 15:32, 31 May 2021 (UTC)

Wikipedia should Celebrate Autistic Pride Day[edit]

Upcoming 18th June is Autistic Pride Day. Can wikipedia celebrate that day, such as by showing an infinity badge on the front page? Where is the right forum to discuss this proposal? Regards. RIT RAJARSHI (talk) 04:04, 7 June 2021 (UTC)

Perhaps make a new section here. I see at least one other person made the same suggestion in 2006.130.233.213.61 (talk) 06:49, 7 June 2021 (UTC)
