A discussion is taking place at Talk:COVID-19 pandemic in the United Kingdom#RfC_for_refactoring_of_"Timeline"_section about whether the timeline which is seen by some as being too long for the page should be moved to another article, cutdown or kept as it is. It needs a wider range of opinions to reach a consensus so feel free to add your view if you're interested. Llewee (talk) 21:32, 27 April 2021 (UTC)

2021 Nigerian boat accident needs helpEdit

This article is currently unable to go on ITN because it's only a stub. Would anyone be interested in expanding it enough to be ITN-eligible? It sounds like there's at least 100 deaths, which is pretty high and deserves more than a stub. {{u|Sdkb}}talk 06:52, 2 June 2021 (UTC)

Bug-out Bag merger to Survival KitEdit

Hi all,

I wanted to post the merger I have proposed for bug-out bag into survival kit. The discussion can be found on the discussion page in survival kit. Please do outline your thoughts there.

For reference only, here are my main points on the page;

  • Duplication; items and reasoning for both bags are outlined in each other. As "survival kit" can be an umbrella term, this overlap can be removed by merging bug-out bag into this page.
  • Overlap; although there is a difference, these are similar concepts but with contested agreements over their boundaries. This contestion is currently missing as they exist in different pages and merging would help outline this further for the reader - providing context over different names and terminology.
  • Content; the survival kit page hosts a number of different types of survival/ emergency bags (including holding a section for the bug-out bag itself), holding precedent to host other types of bags such as the bug-out or emergency kit. Both pages are starter pages with the survival kit page being the larger one. Merging content into it would help increase its quality and scope of content.
  • Notability; there seems to be little academic or neutral literature that outlines "bug-out bag" as a specific notible topic of seperate coverage. Indeed, the terms "survival", "emergency" and "bug-out bag" are used interchangeably as well as being contested (see point 2). I would suggest a single article would better serve the reader to understand this contestation in terminology and centralise information. Jamzze (talk) 09:37, 8 July 2021 (UTC)

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.

Managing reporting on violenceEdit

In America there are shootings regularly, and this one recently. 2022_Buffalo_shooting

I would like to share again that there is an effort at Wikidata at d:Wikidata:WikiProject Humanitarian Wikidata to manage a list of such events. To the extent of anyone's interest there are things to do at the Wikipedia and Wikidata level. I know a lot of people edit these. Should we talk more about general best practices? Who would be interested in joining such a conversation? Bluerasberry (talk) 20:21, 16 May 2022 (UTC)
