Main Page error reports

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 (22:47 on 25 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.

  • 2012 – African American teenager Trayvon Martin... — The third sentence in the lead of African Americans says, "As a compound adjective, the term is usually hyphenated as African-American." The hyphen in the OTD blurb should accordingly be added back. Modulus12 (talk) 22:46, 25 February 2019 (UTC)

How to submit a news story

Please I want to know how to add a news story and article on Encyclopedia news blog Edyreuben (talk) 08:46, 21 February 2019 (UTC)

Encyclopedia is not a blog. Stories must already exist as an article. doktorb wordsdeeds 08:51, 21 February 2019 (UTC)
After that, nominate the article at Encyclopedia:In the news/Candidates. Art LaPella (talk) 14:50, 21 February 2019 (UTC)

Hachimoji DNA image

Is there a reason why we use the non animated image on the Main Page rather then the animated one shown on the article? I am not complaining just interested in why it is not animated on the Main Page. Abote2 (talk) 16:07, 24 February 2019 (UTC)

Probably the GIF slows down the main page too much (especially since ITN is on the mobile site as well) Eman235/talk 21:38, 24 February 2019 (UTC)
