Main Page error reports

To report an error in content currently or imminently on the Main Page, use the appropriate section below.

  • Where is the error? An exact quotation of the text in question helps.
  • 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 14:04 on 20 May 2024) and is not adjusted to your local time zone.
  • Can you resolve the problem yourself? If the error lies primarily in the content of an article linked from the Main Page, fix the problem there before reporting it here. Text on the Main Page generally defers to the articles with bolded links. Upcoming content on the Main Page is usually only protected from editing beginning 24 hours before its scheduled appearance. Before that period, you can be bold and fix any issues yourself.
  • Do not use {{edit fully-protected}} on this page, which will not get a faster response. It is unnecessary, because this page is not protected, and causes display problems. (See the bottom of this revision for an example.)
  • No chit-chat. Lengthy discussions should be moved to a suitable location elsewhere, such as the talk page of the relevant article or project.
  • Respect other editors. Another user wrote the text you want changed, or reported an issue they see in something you wrote. Everyone's goal should be producing the best Main Page possible. The compressed time frame of the Main Page means sometimes action must be taken before there has been time for everyone to comment. Be civil to fellow users.
  • Reports are removed when resolved. Once an error has been addressed, determined not to be an error, or the item has rotated off the Main Page, the report will be removed from this page. Check the revision history for a record of any discussion or action taken; no archives are kept.

In the caption: "her 1917 story The Underside formed"; change to "her 1917 short story "The Underside" formed" (wording, italics to quotation marks) per:

  • Goble, Alan (8 September 2011). The Complete Index to Literary Sources in Film. Walter de Gruyter. p. 648. ISBN 978-3-11-095194-3. Retrieved 19 May 2022.
Edit: This is for {{Template:POTD/2024-05-20}}. — Preceding unsigned comment added by DocWatson42 (talkcontribs)
Partially  Done. I've added the word "short" but short stories are not shown in italic font as per MOS:NOITALIC, DocWatson42. Schwede66 03:48, 20 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]
Pardon me–I meant "change the italics to quotation marks", but was trying to be brief on the (mistaken) assumption that that was clear enough. :-/ —DocWatson42 (talk) 03:56, 20 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]
Based on MOS:MINORWORK. —DocWatson42 (talk) 03:57, 20 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]
I read your (somewhat cryptic) instructions as "apply italics to the quotation marks as well". Schwede66 03:59, 20 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]
I'm sorry. :-( On reexamining it, I really just meant to list the two changes. —DocWatson42 (talk) 13:10, 20 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]

The second sentence says "window wearing a red cape." That is a dangling modifier. It should read "wife, (name), wearing a red cape, passing . . ." Wis2fan (talk) 03:58, 17 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]

Dark mode is coming!

If you haven't seen the news, natively-supported dark mode is coming. I think if you want to try it without opting in etc. this is a link you can try (it worked for me in private mode of Firefox).

This means the main page needs some styles. Previously it was basically how any old page in the main space looks (e.g. Facebook: just a black background and borders). I took an hour or two to give it a color theme reminiscent of light mode with some use of this web theme maker (I got the "value" for the light mode colors in the spectrum, then flipped them relative to 1000) and then made a single tweak (the purple used for TFP). Wikipedia:Main Page/styles.css has the colors (which are duplicated for the "OS" selection) if you want a readable summary.

Visited links are not necessarily accessible currently, but they aren't accessible on the current dark mode either (contrast of 3.5), so I don't think it's worth spending a ton of time on that.

If anyone thinks things aren't ideal (and I suspect they aren't), feel free to nudge things in the relevant style sheet with an admin request (who has to nudge them twice). Ignoring the link accessibility, I think right now the border for section headers on the blue side and TFP aren't great, and the TFP header background is too bright. Also, bullets aren't visible but that's going to be fixed in the next deployment. Izno (talk) 23:49, 19 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]

One of the tools that's essential for my main page work is User:Anomie/linkclassifier.js (documentation) and it's important that with coloured backgrounds, this still works. Schwede66 00:43, 20 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]
Not directly relevant to this section, but if you want to ensure that looks some reasonable way, you should discuss with Anomie. All the link colors are the default here. Izno (talk) 01:03, 20 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]
