Wikipedia:Main Page

To report an error in current or upcoming Main Page content, please add it to the appropriate section below.

  • Where is the error? An exact quotation of all or part of the text in question will help.
  • Please offer a correction if possible.
  • References are helpful, especially when reporting an obscure factual or grammatical error.
  • Time zones: The Main Page runs on Coordinated Universal Time (UTC, currently 09:29 on 28 November 2023), not adjusted to your local time zone.
  • Do not use {{edit fully-protected}} on this page, which will not give you a faster response; it is unnecessary as this page is not protected and will in fact cause problems if used here, as this is not a talk page. (See the bottom of this revision for an example.)
  • Done? Once an error has been fixed, rotated off the Main Page or acknowledged not to be an error, the report will be removed from this page; please check the revision history for a record of any discussion or action taken, as no archives are kept.
  • No chit-chat: Lengthy discussions should be moved to a suitable location elsewhere, such as the relevant article or project talk page.
  • Please respect other editors. A real person wrote the blurb or hook for which you are suggesting a fix, or a real person noticed what they honestly believe is an issue with the blurb or hook that you wrote. Everyone is interested in creating the best Main Page possible; with the compressed time frame, there is sometimes more stress and more opportunities to step on toes. Please be civil to fellow users.
  • Can you resolve the problem yourself? If the error lies primarily in the content of an article linked from the Main Page, consider first attempting to fix the problem there before reporting it here if necessary. Text on the Main Page generally defers to the articles with bolded links. In addition, upcoming content is typically only protected from editing 24 hours before its scheduled appearance; in most cases, you can be bold and fix any issues yourself.

  • State Fair blurb - In last sentence "This poster was produced for the Twentieth Century–Fox Film Corporation for the 1933 theatrical release of State Fair.", the organisation should be Fox Film.
The pipe linked 20th Century Studios was not formed until 1935. The film was released in February 1933. 20th Century Studios was a merger of Fox Film and Twentieth Century Pictures whose first film was The Bowery (film) released in October 1933.
Even though at the bottom of the actual image it has a 20th Century Fox logo, that appears to have been pasted on, possibly when the copyright line (in tiny print line within the white border) was added to the poster in MCMXXXVI (1936) ie after the merger.
That line also seems to credit the poster to "Tooker - Moore" (painter George Tooker - DC Moore Gallery?) Adam is that enough to change "Poster credit: unknown" to Tooker? JennyOz (talk) 06:18, 28 November 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
