User script to detect unreliable sourcesEdit

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.

Ryan CorneliusEdit

I recently created an article for Ryan Cornelius, a British property developer whose imprisonment in Dubai has gotten some attention. Any help would be appreciated. Thriley (talk) 03:51, 2 May 2022 (UTC)

Anyone Want to Help W/ My First Article?Edit

I just submitted an article for review at AfC and I could use some help in improving its chances for approval. It concerns the 2009 murder of Joanne Witt by her teenage daughter and her daughter's 19 year old boyfriend. Any input welcome.
