Main Page error reports[edit]

To report an error in current or upcoming Main Page content, 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.
  • Please 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 08:38 on 25 September 2021), not adjusted to your local time zone.
  • Do not use {{edit fully-protected}}, which will not give you a faster response; it is unnecessary as this page is not protected and in fact causes problems if used here. (See the bottom of this revision for an example.)
  • Done? Once an error has been fixed, rotated off the Main Page or acknowledged not to be an error, the report will be removed from this page; please check the page's revision history for any discussion or action taken, as no archives are kept.
  • No chit-chat: Lengthy discussions should be moved to a suitable location elsewhere.
  • Please respect other editors. A real person wrote the blurb or hook to which you are suggesting a fix, or a real person noticed what they honestly believe is an issue with the blurb or hook that you wrote. Everyone is interested in creating the best Main Page possible; with the compressed time frame, there is sometimes more stress and more opportunities to step on toes. Please be civil to fellow users.
  • Can you resolve the problem yourself? If the error lies primarily in the content of an article linked from the Main Page, consider first attempting to fix the problem there before reporting it here if necessary. Text on the Main Page generally defers to the bolded articles. In addition, upcoming content is typically only protected from editing 24 hours before its scheduled appearance; in most cases, you can be bold and fix any issues yourself.

The Battle of Shiroyama was not the decisive battle of the Satsuma Rebellion. The decisive battle was the Battle of Tabaruzaka, or some might argue the Siege of Kumamoto Castle (two geographically close conflicts). The Battle of Shiroyama was simply the final mop up operation of the Satsuma Rebellion. Shiroyama was 30,000 vs 500, more like a suicide than a battle. Nowhere in the article on the Battle of Shiroyama does it say it was decisive. It is a shame that On This Day has such a gross error. I recommend changing "decisive engagement" to "final engagement". --Westwind273 (talk) 06:02, 24 September 2021 (UTC)[]

First ever all civilian space flight[edit]

I know this is a subjective opinion (and I'm not sure if photos are chosen by ojective importance), but can the photo of a historic milestone in human history, the first ever all civilian space flight stay up for more than a few hours before getting replaced? JanderVK (talk) 19:43, 18 September 2021 (UTC)[]

"Wikipedia languages" section[edit]

What's the criteria for a language Wikipedia to show up here? I was just taking a look and some rather notable languages are missing despite having more than the number of articles listed here -- for example Hindi, Urdu, and Swahili. Wyverald (talk) 16:33, 20 September 2021 (UTC)[]

I could be mistaken but I believe that large numbers of stubs have disqualified some languages from appearing before; that's not to say that the examples you provided would be affected by this but I seem to recall editors not wishing to include stubs in "article" counts. 𝄠ʀᴀᴘᴘʟᴇ 16:40, 20 September 2021 (UTC)[]
