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 (22:07 on 27 June 2017), 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]

If the "Tanaka Memorial" is a forgery, then it cannot be said it came out of the conference that is mentioned. It can only be said it "allegedly" came out of this conference. --Bernardoni (talk) 17:05, 27 June 2017 (UTC)

This item really shouldn't be on the front page. The conference itself isn't all that interesting, and the writing of the document is (since it's a forgery and all) not something that happened on this day. - (talk) 18:47, 27 June 2017 (UTC)
Replaced with Jacobo Árbenz which is a GA. Apart from the above issues, sublinks like Tanaka Giichi are very poorly referenced. Black Kite (talk) 19:06, 27 June 2017 (UTC)
Also need to change the picture - it will confuse readers why he is there.--DavidCane (talk) 21:03, 27 June 2017 (UTC)

TFD nominations relevant to the Main Page[edit]

{{Mprotected2}} and {{M-cropped}} have been nominated for deletion. These two templates are, or were, associated with the maintenance of the main page. -- John of Reading (talk) 05:52, 23 June 2017 (UTC)

Main page views[edit]

I'm not sure this is the right place to ask, but does anybody know why on the pageviews graph on top of this page there is a period between July and August 2016 with three times the number of visits to the page compared to the rest of the last year? Thank you! --Ita140188 (talk) 03:36, 26 June 2017 (UTC)

For reference, this is what that period looks like more in detail: [1]--Ita140188 (talk) 03:42, 26 June 2017 (UTC)

Nobody knew the last time we discussed it, neither here nor at the Village Pump. Art LaPella (talk) 06:14, 26 June 2017 (UTC)
Thanks for the links anyway! --Ita140188 (talk) 07:35, 26 June 2017 (UTC)

Enfield anniversary[edit]

Will just mention the 50th anniversary of the ATM today - it was in the news, but no mention on the source list of anniversaries. Jackiespeel (talk) 21:52, 27 June 2017 (UTC)

Automated teller machine has an orange-level tag so is ineligible to appear at OTD, unfortunately. BencherliteTalk 22:07, 27 June 2017 (UTC)
