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 (04:07 on 23 March 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.

The entry for Anne Hutchinson links to Antinomianism but she did not teach that Christians weren't bound by moral law (that's Antinomianism), she taught that they weren't bound by the law of the State, that is, she taught anarchism. Regardless, the reason for her expulsion involved her stances on free will vs. predestination, faith vs. works and other doctrinal issues on which the Massachusetts puritans considered her position heretical. The blurb is misleading about the official reasons as well as the more speculative underlying reasons which might have involved her political dissident tendencies (such as not ascribing legitimacy or rightful jurisdiction to the colony's laws).

@Aoeuaoi: This is no longer on the Main Page, but Hutchinson's article defines "antinomianism" as meaning that "the moral law is not binding upon Christians, who are under the law of grace." As the blurb defers to the article, if the latter is incorrect, you'll have to take it up on Talk:Anne Hutchinson and have it fixed there before we do anything to the content on the Main Page. howcheng {chat} 04:05, 23 March 2019 (UTC)

Four gloomy entries - I know it is in the nature of ITN, but ... Jackiespeel (talk) 20:35, 16 March 2019 (UTC)

Jackiespeel The beginning of the year is a slow period as we don't yet have a lot of recurring events(that are usually more positive) for posting; we can only wait for events to happen that merit posting. We can also only consider what is nominated, if you know of articles about more positive events that may merit posting and are covered in the news, feel free to nominate them at WP:ITNC. 331dot (talk) 20:40, 16 March 2019 (UTC)
M<ore an observation, as there has not been 'a grouping' for a while, and sometimes it is possible to reorganise what appears.
When was the last time there was a 'too many X (over the last few days) across the MP' comment on this talk page? Jackiespeel (talk) 15:06, 18 March 2019 (UTC)
Here. Art LaPella (talk) 16:53, 18 March 2019 (UTC)
And the more general 'Woe is Wikipedia -the MP is not 'hot drinks and crumbs near the keyboard and/or the children and/or worksafe'?
Perhaps, as a reasonable compromise - when 'four gloomy ITN entries have been there for several days' something neutral is rotated in - eg [1] (which is on the List of meteor air bursts). Jackiespeel (talk) 19:10, 18 March 2019 (UTC)
I think you want birds, but I don't get the relevance. Art LaPella (talk) 19:33, 18 March 2019 (UTC)
There are two points - when to rotate the material at ITN (there are still 'four gloomy stories') and those MPs which contain 'topics which disconcert or cause much discussion' (including 'why have we had X references to (topic) in the last (y) days)? Jackiespeel (talk) 11:40, 19 March 2019 (UTC)
I generally avoid ITN beyond proofreading. Past Main Page discussions of every description can be found in the archives. Anyone else? Art LaPella (talk) 13:44, 19 March 2019 (UTC)

───────────────────────── Alas, much of the world in which we live is often a grim place, and unpleasant events tend to be newsworthy. We're not here to whitewash reality. – Sca (talk) 20:51, 20 March 2019 (UTC)

Changing the main font color from black to #222

I noticed the main font color on the main page is black, whereas the standard article text color is #222 (very dark gray). For consistency and ease of reading (eye strain, contrast, etc) we should change the main font color to #222 as well. Thoughts? Enterprisey (talk!) 22:27, 20 March 2019 (UTC)

What's wrong with black? It was good enough for Gutenberg. The more contrast, the better. Sca (talk) 01:05, 21 March 2019 (UTC)
If it isn't broken, don't fix it. The C of E God Save the Queen! (talk) 08:58, 21 March 2019 (UTC)
Agreed, leave as it is. David J Johnson (talk) 09:11, 21 March 2019 (UTC)
I agree with Enterprisey. For consistency if nothing else, but it's long been known that straight-up black-on-white is not good design. — 🦊 02:00, 23 March 2019 (UTC)
Given the Blue, Green and Purple backgrounds, I think Black is working well. Agree, if it's not broke... - FlightTime (open channel) 02:03, 23 March 2019 (UTC)
