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 (10:27 on 19 February 2019), 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.

  • 1814 entry: "French troops ... forced the Army of Bohemia to retreat after having advanced dangerously close to Paris". It is not clear that the "having advanced" refers to the Army of Bohemia rather than the French troops. Clearer would be "after it had advanced". Jmchutchinson (talk) 08:22, 18 February 2019 (UTC)
  • Replaced "having" with "it"; I didn't think the "had" would be necessary. If you think the sentence would be better with "had", please say so here. Nyttend (talk) 13:21, 18 February 2019 (UTC)

Regarding [1] please display https://saveyourinternet.eu/act/ prominently as a noticebox warning as above for readers in Europe. Thank you. EllenCT (talk) 04:24, 18 February 2019 (UTC)

A story somewhere on the BBC News website in the last week said that online encyclopaedias were specifically exempted from Article 13. Is that not correct? - Sitush (talk) 04:35, 18 February 2019 (UTC)
See here. - Sitush (talk) 04:36, 18 February 2019 (UTC)
Thank you. I am aware of the allowance for "nonprofit online encyclopedias" but the proposed legislation breaks our reusable licenses, so the request stands. EllenCT (talk) 04:53, 18 February 2019 (UTC)
I see no consensus for a banner and the correct venue for discussing this would be WP:VPR, where you've also started a thread linking here. This talk page is for discussing the main page, not banners and soap boxes. Isa (talk) 04:41, 18 February 2019 (UTC)
The proposal is in response to an existential threat to the promises we have made to our users that our content be reusable. I would prefer to address concerns on the the WP:VPR thread and I am happy to do both. EllenCT (talk) 05:04, 18 February 2019 (UTC)
Proposals belong on the proposals section of the VP, regardless of your preferences, and you'll need an RFC and a long discussion before something like this is done. It has nothing to do with the main page. I'd urge you to redirect the links you're adding all over the place to the VP discussion. Isa (talk) 05:06, 18 February 2019 (UTC)

Please direct further discussion to the WP:VPR thread. EllenCT (talk) 05:12, 18 February 2019 (UTC)
