Move pajamas to pyjamas?Edit

Need help with making an entry for American Fashion PodcastEdit

I previously created a page tracking all the episodes of American Fashion Podcast, but it was deleted "because the page seems to be unambiguous advertising which only promotes a company, product, group, service or person and would need to be fundamentally rewritten in order to become encyclopedic." I spent several hours figuring out how to post and inputting all the information, so it was really frustrating to have it deleted. Most of what I compiled did get rebuilt as the Episodes List page on the AFP site.

That was several months ago, and the show is now up past 60 episodes with a ton of interviews with both famous designers and lesser known behind the scenes artists, entrepreneurs, and educators. There is now press coverage from Harper's Bazaar, Huffington Post, Bustle, American Manufacturing, and Put This On.

I'm admittedly not very good at editing Wikipedia, the complex syntax really throws me. I would like to get some help in putting it together again, but right this time. added by Fashiontechguru 9pm EST, 22 August 2015, updated 11:30am on 23 August 2015

Photos from fashion exhibitEdit

The Denver Art Museum recently held an exhibit on the fashion house of Dior and I managed to take several good quality images of the dresses featured in the exhibit. I was wondering if images from such an exhibit can be used on Wikipedia freely?

Contribution to WikiProject FashionEdit

I am new to Wikipedia and I was inquiring on how I can join this topic or as a contributor KipereEm (talk) 12:32, 28 January 2022 (UTC)

KipereEm Hi! Thanks for your interest in helping out :) I've sent some links to you through your talk page that might be helpful. In terms of joining as a contributor, all you need to do is edit in relevant articles. Are there any topics within fashion where you have a particular interest? A. C. SantacruzPlease ping me! 12:55, 28 January 2022 (UTC)
A._C._Santacruz Hey! I saw the links, thanks alot. I am interested in Shoes especially male shoes since am male. And I will be pinging you. KipereEm (talk) 11:05, 29 January 2022 (UTC)
Oxford shoe is marked as lacking citations for verification since 2013, meaning it lacks reliable sources to back the claims made on the article. Would this be an article that interests you? A. C. SantacruzPlease ping me! 11:13, 29 January 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.
