Main Page error reports[edit]

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 (06:07 on 16 July 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.

OTD today[edit]

  • "kidney stones" is piped to a redirect. The Rambling Man (talk) 13:47, 15 July 2018 (UTC)
  • "were diagnosed with kidney stones " but surely what was more important was the death of six of them? The Rambling Man (talk) 13:55, 15 July 2018 (UTC)
  • I've tried to rewrite it - better, or should the six deaths be the point of the hook? Black Kite (talk) 14:10, 15 July 2018 (UTC)
  • I think it needs a further re-write. Really, the sixteen affected by kidney stones pales into insignificance when the scale of the impact is discussed. I understand that the kidney stone diagnosis was the OTD link, but it's somewhat trivial compared to the deaths and hundreds of thousands affected. The Rambling Man (talk) 14:13, 15 July 2018 (UTC)
  • Made another attempt. Not all of the 300K were infants, and it wasn't limited to one area of China, so I've accounted for that. Black Kite (talk) 14:24, 15 July 2018 (UTC)
  • Two issues, we don't start sentences with numbers, and we don't have multi-sentence OTD blurbs. I think this one could use a replacement. It's impact isn't really an OTD kind of article. The Rambling Man (talk) 14:33, 15 July 2018 (UTC)
I gave it another tweak. Gatoclass (talk) 14:52, 15 July 2018 (UTC)
Just the MOSNUM issue to fix now. The Rambling Man (talk) 17:42, 15 July 2018 (UTC)
This should be pulled as it is the scandal that broke on this day, but that’s not mentioned. The tainted milk powder had been ongoing. Also the wording is clumsy, were the children hospitalised due to six deaths? No. I’m on mobile so can make major edits, otherwise I’d pull it myself. Stephen 22:56, 15 July 2018 (UTC)
I gave it another tweak. Gatoclass (talk) 02:06, 16 July 2018 (UTC)
  • "was hunted down and killed" - the article said that OTD he was "reported dead in unclear circumstances" which isn't the same as "hunted down and killed" by any means. The Rambling Man (talk) 14:35, 15 July 2018 (UTC)
    • Rewrote, but I'm pulling it out for column balance. howcheng {chat} 03:37, 16 July 2018 (UTC)

  • Well that truck layout sure ain't 'conventional' in my neck of the woods, nor for hundreds of millions of others across Europe and Asia. Victoriosissimus (talk) —Preceding undated comment added 02:05, 16 July 2018 (UTC)
