Lost Data on PageEdit

Apologies, I'm new here and just trying to help.

On the following page ( located at the bottom of the paragraph headed "Hydrometallurgical Metals Reclamation" the paragraph suddenly ends. The linked article refers to (

"The amount spent over" doesn't give a lot of context, but the author's intent appears to be something about the cost of using hydrometallurgical metal reclamation in a specific case study.

( suggests that "The hydrometallurgical process is considered to be the most suitable method for the recycling of spent lithium-ion batteries."

( concludes "Under the tested conditions, lower incineration temperatures (400–500 °C) seem to favor the formation of CO and CO2, which reacts with the electrode material starting a carbothermic reduction and helps to improve the leaching efficiency of metals from LIBs without additional reducers that are usually needed."

( discusses the hydrometallurgical process for lithium in greater detail, and discusses some other leaching methods in detail.

I hope this helps. VoidMagi (talk) 09:04, 25 April 2022 (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" Accessed 2020-02-14. (John Smith "[ Article of things]" ''''. 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.
