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.

Ascension requestEdit

Hi editors, my name is KC and I work for Ascension. I made a request to update the history section over at the Ascension page and was hoping someone here would take a look! I won't make any changes myself since I have a conflict of interest. I really appreciate the help! KC at Ascension (talk) 20:57, 1 June 2022 (UTC)

How to go about lengthy revisions to listsEdit

Hello, I am planning to go through and correctly format "lists of hospitals" articles into the sortable table outlined in the wikiproject guidelines, such as the List of Hospitals in Texas. This will, obviously, take quite a bit of time. How should I approach this? Should I change it to a table with only the name of the hospital, city, and county and publish it, then go back and add bed numbers, trauma levels, sources, etc. bit by bit as I'm able to? I'm afraid that so many revisions to the article will be annoying if I keep publishing changes and updating over and over again. But how else would I go about it? Is there a way to save it as a draft and keep working on it so that it doesn't get published only halfway done and look a mess? Any advice would be appreciated.

Syntax of WikiProject Hospitals template.Edit

The article states "Add completed {{WikiProject Hospitals}} templates ...".
OK, I'm interested to add the template to a page but baffled to find the syntax to add the parameters correctly. Please provide a link to the syntax. Thx, ... PeterEasthope (talk) 16:18, 8 July 2022 (UTC)

@PeterEasthope: WP:1.0/A describes the parameters of assessment (Stub/Start/C etc...). If you want to add {{WPHOSPITAL}} easily with a good GUI, as well as other project tags, I recommend using WP:RATER, a wonderful tool for rating and categorizing pages into WikiProjects. Happy Editing--IAmChaos 05:05, 9 July 2022 (UTC)
Thanks. {{WikiProject Hospitals}} is now a link to the template page. The reader can see the syntax after one click. Regards, ... PeterEasthope (talk) 15:44, 13 July 2022 (UTC)

Help Improving Mayo Clinic Health System articleEdit

Hi WikiProject Hospitals! I'm Maria, an employee of Mayo Clinic Health System. The current article about the health system is short, so I've been working on a draft that expands on our history, facilities, research, and community work. Since I have a conflict of interest, I understand I can't edit the article directly. I'm here hoping to find editors who are interested in helping to review my draft and implement appropriate improvements. You can view my draft here. I posted an edit request on the article Talk page. Thanks! MM from MCHS (talk) 16:17, 12 July 2022 (UTC)
