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 (UTC, currently 08:05 on 7 June 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 FA

Both the main page summary and article lead state that Aluminium was "used extensively by the ancients for dyeing and city defense" but this use is not mentioned in the main body of the article - Dumelow (talk) 06:50, 7 June 2019 (UTC)

"dyeing" is mentioned and cited in the body; so that is fine. I do not see "city defense" mentioned or cited in the body. Instead what is cited is use "in medicine, [and] as a fire-resistant coating for wood and in chemical milling. I recommend mentioning "fire-resistant coating" in the lead and the TFA blurb. --- Coffeeandcrumbs 08:04, 7 June 2019 (UTC)
