User script to detect unreliable sources edit

I have (with the help of others) made a small user script to detect and highlight various links to unreliable sources and predatory journals. Some of you may already be familiar with it, given it is currently the 39th most imported script on Wikipedia. The idea is that it takes something like

  • John Smith "Article of things" Deprecated.com. Accessed 2020-02-14. (John Smith "[https://www.deprecated.com/article Article of things]" ''Deprecated.com''. Accessed 2020-02-14.)

and turns it into something like

It will work on a variety of links, including those from {{cite web}}, {{cite journal}} and {{doi}}.

The script is mostly based on WP:RSPSOURCES, WP:NPPSG and WP:CITEWATCH and a good dose of common sense. I'm always expanding coverage and tweaking the script's logic, so general feedback and suggestions to expand coverage to other unreliable sources are always welcomed.

Do note that this is not a script to be mindlessly used, and several caveats apply. Details and instructions are available at User:Headbomb/unreliable. Questions, comments and requests can be made at User talk:Headbomb/unreliable.

Feedback on draft for "505" edit

I submitted a draft for "505" by Arctic Monkeys, but reviewers haven't gotten around to it (probably due to the 3,271 other pending submissions). The song (I think) has a pretty alternative sound, and the rock music WikiProject is kind of inactive. The draft template says to go to one of these, so if any reviewers want to view the draft, here is the link.

Foals (band) a British or English band? edit

Hello there. I have started a discussion for the article Foals (band) on their origin, and there is a bit of edit warring from an IP regarding the lead section on whether the band is British or if they are English. I have started a discussion on the article's talk page for this thread: Talk:Foals (band)#British or English?. I would like to see some discussion to see if a consensus could be reached on whether they are British or English. The categories say they are an English band, but IP (who refuses to communicate in talk discussion) persists that it is a British band via their edit summaries. So far, there's been no communication from the IP and users I have pinged. Also, adding this to other related WikiProject talk pages for their input.
