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

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

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.

Could this page please be semi-protected? It seems to be a spam target. Pppery (talk) 00:16, 2 December 2023 (UTC)Reply

Home/chn translation only exists because of an accident

Just saying. POSSUM chowg (talk) 23:42, 6 April 2024 (UTC)Reply

@POSSUM chowg: It looks like the translation is now more developed - is that accurate - or is it still a bad translation? --Gregory Varnum (Wikimedia Foundation) [he/him] (talk) 20:26, 6 May 2024 (UTC)Reply
It's still pretty bad POSSUM chowg (talk) 20:27, 6 May 2024 (UTC)Reply
Okay - I will go ahead and delete. You can also help provide better translations if you are interested. Thank you for the ping! --Gregory Varnum (Wikimedia Foundation) [he/him] (talk) 20:31, 6 May 2024 (UTC)Reply
