Assessments sectionEdit

Does "See also Wikipedia:WikiProject Lancashire and Cumbria/Assessment" have any significance in Section 10, Assessments?

Parishes projectEdit

I have started a project for missing civil parishes at User:Crouch, Swale/Missing parishes. The missing parishes in Cumbria are:

And these exists as a redirect only but should have separate articles:

Need someone to checkEdit

I believe I have just fixed the "advertisement-like" section in the article Great Langdale. Could someone else check what I have done? Thegreatcapybara (talk) 00:17, 24 March 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" 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.
