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.

Undiscussed moveEdit

There has been an undiscussed move from Shane O'Neill (Irish chieftain) to Sean O'Neill (Irish chieftain) (not, to note, "Seán"), with attendant changes of name throughout the article, including to quotes. From the rendering in refs and from the fact that in move discussions on the talk page, the issue was not the rendering of the first name but what to put in parenthesis after the full name, I assume "Shane" is the customary rendering for this individual, in English.

It was quickly moved back and the edits were reverted. Scolaire (talk) 16:37, 6 May 2022 (UTC)
