Highlighting whole paragraphsEdit

Special:Permalink/1088052042 highlights the comments in red. This is undesirable and sometimes annoying. 0xDeadbeef (T C) 23:50, 15 May 2022 (UTC)

@0xDeadbeef: See User:Headbomb/unreliable#Limitations. Change * to : at the start of comments to bypass this. Headbomb {t · c · p · b} 18:55, 16 May 2022 (UTC)

Add setlist.fm?Edit

Was going through Wikipedia:AfC sorting/Culture/Media/Music and found a reference to setlist.fm, and was surprised it wasn't highlighted. The site is very clear cut user generated content, and is listed as unreliable at Wikipedia:WikiProject Albums/Sources, with a (very short) 2018 discussion here. It's usage is unfortunately extensive. — PerfectSoundWhatever (t; c) 16:48, 22 May 2022 (UTC)

Zeldauniverse.netEdit

Zeldauniverse.net is a blog consisting of various self-published posts. You might want to add this to the list as I have seen it used as a source. ~Red of Arctic Circle System (talk) 09:41, 1 June 2022 (UTC)

I will note that the site and its YouTube channel do host some interviews with people who worked on various games in The Legend of Zelda series and the TV show, such as this one with the voice actor of Mipha from The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity, and this one with the voice actress of Zelda from The Legend of Zelda (TV series). I'm not sure what Wikipedia's policy on this sort of stuff is though. ~Red Arctic Circle System (talk) 09:54, 1 June 2022 (UTC)
@Arctic Circle System: I'd say discuss it with WP:VG first and I'll abide by what they decide (highlight in red as unreliable, or yellow as depends on topic/contributor). See also [1]. Headbomb {t · c · p · b} 01:02, 3 June 2022 (UTC)
Sounds good. ~Cherri of Arctic Circle System (talk) 02:13, 3 June 2022 (UTC)
@Arctic Circle System: WT:VGRS is probably where you want the discussion to happen, btw. Headbomb {t · c · p · b} 23:30, 3 June 2022 (UTC)

Query about AuthorHouseEdit

  Moved from User talk:Headbomb

Shouldn’t it show as red when used in a reference? Doug Weller talk 17:51, 14 June 2022 (UTC)

Or did I ask this before? Doug Weller talk 17:52, 14 June 2022 (UTC)
@Doug Weller: I'm afraid you'll have to be a bit more explicit in what exactly it is you're asking here. Headbomb {t · c · p · b} 17:53, 14 June 2022 (UTC)
It’s used in Aisha, at the moment reference 10. I’m under the impression that the default for self-published books is unreliable. Doug Weller talk 17:58, 14 June 2022 (UTC)
@Doug Weller: There's no link for the script to operate on. See User:Headbomb/unreliable#False negatives. Or the "bad at dealing with offline sources" bit in the big notice at the top of the script's documentation. Headbomb {t · c · p · b} 18:52, 14 June 2022 (UTC)
Ouch. Sorry, I shall set reading that page as homework so I don’t bother you again. Seriously, I’ll try to read it tomorrow, maybe while I’m sitting for two hours having chemo, if the hospital wireless works. Doug Weller talk 20:25, 14 June 2022 (UTC)
Don't beat yourself over it. Life's too short for memorizing pages of technical documentation. Good luck with the chemo, and don't be afraid to ask if you have more questions! Headbomb {t · c · p · b} 20:53, 14 June 2022 (UTC)
Thanks. I’ll read it though because I’m interested. Doug Weller talk 07:50, 15 June 2022 (UTC)
Very interesting. So would creating a filter for authorhouse (separately) be a good idea? And maybe CreateSpace (although I guess these might exist). It would have to be for publishers that don't have ambiguous names. Doug Weller talk 12:11, 16 June 2022 (UTC)
Not sure how one would go about doing that. You can always search [2] and [3] to find those. Headbomb {t · c · p · b} 18:55, 16 June 2022 (UTC)
That’s a better way. I’ve a lot to learn about searching Wikipedia it seems. Doug Weller talk 19:01, 16 June 2022 (UTC)
