  • 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 (00:52 on 2 Sep 2015), not adjusted to your local time zone.
  • Do not use {{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.)

That's not English:

"The group does not focus upon conversion but rather on communicating its message that Christians exist who are not judging female sex workers and are willing to accept them." — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 00:37, 2 September 2015 (UTC)

I'm not taking a position on the language for this TFA. Anyone? - Dank (push to talk) 00:52, 2 September 2015 (UTC)

Errors in In the news[edit]

"The ancient temples of Bel and Baalshamin in Palmyra are destroyed by the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant.". Erm.... Palmyra's Temple of Bel 'still standing'. Bit premature? (talk) 21:08, 31 August 2015 (UTC)

  • From what I've read, Baalshamin was destroyed, but as pointed out elsewhere, various sources said the extent of damage to Bel (Baal) was unclear. (NYT cited "conflicting reports.")
"Destroyed" is an absolute term denoting total destruction. Thus, to be accurate, we would have to say something like, "the temple of Bel reportedly was heavily damaged." Sca (talk) 21:35, 31 August 2015 (UTC)
Even we at Wikipedia's page for Temple of Bel report: "However, Syria's antiquities chief Maamoun Abdulkarim later stated that although there was an explosion within the temple's perimeter, "the basic structure is still standing"". A rewording need to be made on our front page saying: "The ancient temple of Baalshamin in Palmyra is destroyed and the temple of Bel damaged by the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant." Of course there is no guarantee that the temple of Bell will be spared as future attempts may be made by ISIL to destroy it completely as well. werldwayd (talk) 21:45, 31 August 2015 (UTC)
Agreed. Sca (talk) 22:09, 31 August 2015 (UTC)
As of 2 minutes ago, the BBC is back to "completely destroyed": [1]. --Floquenbeam (talk) 22:13, 31 August 2015 (UTC)

For today (1 Sept) can we link to 1969 Libyan coup d'état for the 1969 article too? Thanks. Lugnuts Dick Laurent is dead 11:02, 1 September 2015 (UTC)

My understanding is we can't because it has an orange tag on it. Pinging Howcheng to make sure, though. Jenks24 (talk) 15:51, 1 September 2015 (UTC)
Correct. See WP:OTDRULES. howcheng {chat} 16:07, 1 September 2015 (UTC)
