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 (UTC, currently 00:04 on 23 August 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.

Today's OTD[edit]

  • 1944World War II: Wehrmacht infantry carried out an assault operation against the civilian residents of nine villages located in the Amari Valley on the Greek island of Crete.
– Not convinced Wehrmacht will be readily understood by today's Eng.-lang. audience. Suggest change to "German Army infantry" or "German Army units." – Sca (talk) 12:57, 22 August 2019 (UTC)
It's linked, so it's fine, but it should be Wehrmacht, i.e. italicised, as I pointed out yesterday. The Rambling Man (Staying alive since 2005!) 13:02, 22 August 2019 (UTC)

You wouldn't use "German Air Force" for Luftwaffe, this is no different, other than the fact that no-one has fixed the non-italics issue. The Rambling Man (Staying alive since 2005!) 14:34, 22 August 2019 (UTC)
Not only that, but it is also listed as an English word at Merriam Webster Online. It therefore shouldn't even be italicised, per MOS:FOREIGNITALIC, and I've de-italicised it in the article.  — Amakuru (talk) 14:37, 22 August 2019 (UTC)

Tomorrow's OTD[edit]

  • One more correction: the slash in Nazism/Black should be spaced out, preferably preceded by a non-breaking space. — RAVENPVFF · talk · 17:19, 22 August 2019 (UTC)
