Problem with link

Link for Board of Trustees is incorrect. Unregistered users and readers see 404. All(?) registered users see Rudolph Ampofo Proeksad (talk) 18:10, 10 July 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@Proeksad: This has been fixed - thank you for pointing it out! --Gregory Varnum (Wikimedia Foundation) [he/him] (talk) 15:17, 12 July 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@GVarnum-WMF, It doesn't work for authorized non-english users. [[foundationsite:role/board/{{Foundationsite language}}|Board of Trustees]] but, probably, should be [[foundationsite:{{Foundationsite language}}/role/board/|Board of Trustees]] because the links are organized differently, not like in projects ( not Proeksad (talk) 16:40, 12 July 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Proeksad: Apologies - I did not notice that error. I have fixed - and will also work on checking the other uses just to make sure I did not repeat the error elsewhere. Again, apologies and thank you for your diligence and help! Also thank you to @Quiddity (WMF) for helping flag while I was away. :) --Gregory Varnum (Wikimedia Foundation) [he/him] (talk) 18:01, 12 July 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

How can I report

How can I report On a Wikipedia page that reports wrong things and protected. The facts is in Wikipedias, yet lies are there Meynachem's (talk) 17:55, 24 October 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hey @Meynachem's, which Wikipedia page are you talking about? Can you please link the page name here? –Tanbiruzzaman (talk) 17:59, 24 October 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
To the Wikipedia Editing Team
I am writing to request an immediate revision of the Wikipedia article regarding the Al-Ahli Arab Hospital explosion in Gaza City on October 17, 2023. I have concerns about the current articles in Hebrew and Arabic, which present conflicting narratives. This has resulted in confusion and adversely affects Wikipedia's credibility.
Of utmost concern is the Arabic Wikipedia article, which presents a misleading narrative depicting the incident as an Israeli massacre, despite substantial evidence to the contrary. This misrepresentation not only perpetuates misinformation but also obstructs the pursuit of truth and reconciliation. Moreover, there is a real risk that such inaccuracies could incite violence against innocent individuals, a scenario that we all wish to avoid. Therefore, it is imperative to rectify these inaccuracies and provide a balanced and accurate account of the incident.
I propose the following actions to address this issue:
1. Conduct a thorough review of both the Hebrew and Arabic articles to correct inaccuracies and eliminate biases.
2. Ensure that all references are transparent, encompassing statements from the Israeli Defense Forces, American intelligence agencies, international media reports, and other reliable sources.
3. Commit to regular updates with the latest credible information to maintain the article's accuracy over time.
Wikipedia bears a significant responsibility for accurate and transparent reporting, especially in sensitive matters like this. I cannot emphasize enough the urgency of this situation.
Sincerely, meynachem Here is link to both pages:
