Reliable sources for bodybuilding articles?Edit

Do we have a list of reliable sources for weight lifting and bodybuilding articles. Most of the articles in these areas are disasterous mixes of just plain unsourced WP:OR and references to unreliable sources. I'm not familiar enough with the subject are to know which sources are considered reliable.

Right now, I'm looking at Overhead press. My guess is that neither or would be considered reliable and looks more reasonable? -- RoySmith (talk) 13:34, 25 September 2021 (UTC)

Dr. Vin Gupta/NBC & MSNBC Medical Analyst AfCEdit

Dear Colleagues,

Hopeful you might be willing to provide a review for this AfC for Dr. Vin Gupta, NBC News's primary health policy/COVID-19 medical analyst. He's on primetime television almost daily, and has been so for almost 2 years, so thought it was important to address this gap so viewers would be informed.

Link here:

Thank you in advance for your time.

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.
