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.

Recent edits by MrDarygo1343 (talk · contribs)Edit

Several Cuba-related articles have been edited recently by MrDarygo1343 (talk · contribs) (and there are similar edits by 47.201.35.199 (talk · contribs · WHOIS)). Some of the edits seem like unobjectionable tidying, but others (see, for example, the histories of José Antonio Aponte and Aponte conspiracy) involve major unreferenced changes that seem to be introducing false material that doesn't align with reliable sources. I have reverted some of these edits, but I was hoping that someone with more familiarity with the subject matter could take a look at these contributions and decide what else, if anything, needs to be reverted or fixed. The same editor has also edited the Spanish-language versions of some of the articles. —ShelfSkewed Talk 17:05, 26 September 2022 (UTC)

Well, as I was writing this, the editor I named was blocked and all their edits reverted—so, never mind, I guess? Some of the IP editor's edits are still current, though.—ShelfSkewed Talk 17:11, 26 September 2022 (UTC)

There is a requested move discussion at Talk:Death and state funeral of Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani#Requested move 25 September 2022 that may be of interest to members of this WikiProject. UtherSRG (talk) 10:50, 5 October 2022 (UTC)

That probably was cryptic... why do we care about that? This RM involves about 50 state funeral articles, including at least one that is related to this WP. - UtherSRG (talk) 12:09, 5 October 2022 (UTC)
