Women in Red Europe contestEdit

After successfully completing our Asia and Africa contests over the past six months, we now welcome contributions to our Women in Europe contest which runs for three separate months from April to June 2021. To qualify for the contest, articles have to contain at least 160 words or 1,000 characters of running text and participants need to be members of Women in Red. We look forward to lots of new biographies of women from Iceland.--Ipigott (talk) 06:43, 2 April 2021 (UTC)

Requesting assistance for new Icelandic editorEdit

Hello! Can someone please reach out to User:SigurðurUnnar, a new Icelandic editor, to help them along with adding citations and developing their drafts? They are doing good work and it is clear they are trying but perhaps uncomfortable with the English language. Some recent accepted article are Jóhannes Jóhannesson and Lárus Blöndal. They have a pending draft, Draft:Björn Blöndal. S0091 (talk) 23:23, 22 January 2022 (UTC)

First powered Icelandic boatEdit

Members may be interested in the discussion in WT:SHIPS about whether Stanley (boat) meets WP:GNG. The stub is now sourced and there is more content at is:Stanley (bátur), sourced to this article. Unfortunately, GoogleTranslate doesn't seem to cope with Icelandic very idiomatically. Can anyone here assist with this? Davidships (talk) 10:31, 24 February 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" Deprecated.com. Accessed 2020-02-14. (John Smith "[https://www.deprecated.com/article Article of things]" ''Deprecated.com''. 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.
