Administrator instructions

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.
  • 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 (16:08 on 18 January 2018), not adjusted to your local time zone.
  • Do not use {{edit fully-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, or has rotated off the Main Page, or has been acknowledged as not an error, 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.
  • Can you fix the issue yourself? If the error is with the content of an article linked from the main page, consider attempting to fix the problem rather than reporting it here.

"... that the mausoleum of the First Qin Emperor is a national archaeological park of China, while the tomb of St. Francis Xavier is a candidate for the designation?" - according to our article Francis Xavier he is buried in the Basilica of Bom Jesus, which is in India, and not even any of the parts of India claimed by China.

  • The tomb is empty, as is the one in India, as is the one in Malaysia.... The Rambling Man (talk) 12:39, 18 January 2018 (UTC)
    The one in India isn't empty, according to the article I linked above. You can even see bits of him in the pictures. DuncanHill (talk) 12:42, 18 January 2018 (UTC)
    Well the others are empty. Such empty tombs seem commonplace. The Rambling Man (talk) 12:49, 18 January 2018 (UTC)
    We don't have an article on the Tomb of Francis Xavier, that's a redlink in National archaeological park of China. Neither reference provided for that section seem to mention a tomb of Francis Xavier (albeit I'm checking using Google Translate). fish&karate 13:09, 18 January 2018 (UTC)

POTD today[edit]

In the text discussing the POTD, the date range needs to be fixed--either use 'from' and 'to' or the en-dash, not a mixture of both. The text now reads "From January 18–19, 2012," so it could be changed to "From January 18 to 19, 2012" (or a variation of that), or it could be shortened down to just "January 18–19, 2012". Thanks!
