Nonsens in series of templates concering *** infantry weapons of World War IIEdit

Hello, as we work international i came across Template:WWIIUSInfWeaponsNav + Template:WWIIGermanInfWeapons and some others in Category:World War II weapons navigational boxes. The mix of weapons with ammunition is nonsens in a template for weapons. See my comment there. On our side we fixed it like this: de:Vorlage:Navigationsleiste Handwaffen der Wehrmacht im Zweiten Weltkrieg + de:Vorlage:Navigationsleiste Infanteriewaffen der französischen Armee im Zweiten Weltkrieg. Thinking about similar corrections in en:WP is up to you. Best --Tom (talk) 10:37, 10 April 2021 (UTC)

Explain "Duty to inform" in articlesEdit

Gun laws in the United States by state and other articles list "Duty to inform" in the table listings. What is "Duty to inform"? Readers need a Wikilink, not just ref-links to the particular laws. Thanks. – S. Rich (talk) 19:04, 13 May 2021 (UTC)

That is a good point. I wonder if a short Wikipedia article would be warranted. If not, maybe a section in Concealed carry in the United States. --Surv1v4l1st Talk|Contribs 18:39, 18 June 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" 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.
