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 (18:44 on 16 January 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.

Misuse of wikipedia[edit]

Wikipedia is widely read in India and is therefore becoming a battleground for the upcoming elections of May 2019. Just read the article “Amethi” (Rahul Gandhi’s constituency). It has North Korean style superlatives about Rahul and his family. Just like the Kim’s they make it sound much better than reality and paint a picture that the public should be grateful to them.

This talk page is for discussing the main page, it is not a general forum for content disputes. I see you've already started a discussion on the article's talk page, which is a good thing. You should wait for other editors to weigh in and see what they think. Cheers! Isa (talk) 04:34, 9 January 2019 (UTC)

Uncropped Cropped

I cropped this image shortly before its appearance on the main page. Another editor objected, so I've self-reverted and inserted the talk page exchange below to solicit additional comments (potentially applicable to other animal photographs in the future). Pinging its participants, Yoninah and EEng. —David Levy 02:44, 13 January 2019 (UTC)

Hi, in photography class I learned that it's okay to show part of a human body (like a head-and-shoulders shot), but you always have to show the whole body of an animal, because otherwise it looks weird. Sorry to say, but this crop looks weird. Yoninah (talk) 00:01, 13 January 2019 (UTC)

Looks OK to me. EEng 00:08, 13 January 2019 (UTC)
Yoninah: I took some photography courses and wasn't taught such a principle, so perhaps there are varying schools of thought.
Per your comment, I've self-reverted and initiated a thread on the main page's talk page.

Personally I don't mind either but I do slightly prefer the original as it just seems more natural to show the whole animal. The Royal C (talk) 08:39, 13 January 2019 (UTC)
I would prefer the cropped picture, TBH. It's an individual animal in a personal and emotional context, so showing legs and the like seems like a waste of limited space to me. Kranix (talk | contribs) 19:00, 13 January 2019 (UTC)
