List of Mathematical Uses of Latin LettersEdit

Dear WikiProject Lists,

I am working on an article called the List of Mathematical Uses of Latin Letters. I am quite passionate about improving this article since it's the first article I have set out to improve. I have come to your WikiProject because I would like to understand if a list like this could reach featured list status with some work. I am not sure if the content would ever be worthy. Any help would be much appreciated!

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.

MOS:DL vs MOS:DL in lists of supercentenariansEdit

I noticed MOS:OL was applied incorrectly at the List of Danish supercentenarians, since MOS:DL states that:

Duplicate linking in stand-alone and embedded lists is permissible if it significantly aids the reader. This is most often the case when the list is presenting information that could just as aptly be formatted in a table, and is expected to be parsed for particular bits of data, not read from top to bottom.

I corrected it, only to be subsequently reverted. I was then adverted that this was the consistent format across all supercentenarians lists:

Indeed it is, but it's still in contravention to MOS:DL, is it not?Guarapiranga  23:42, 12 June 2022 (UTC)

Guarapiranga, just FYI for the next time you need a list like this: append #bawledit to the URL (or since you have section editing enabled, just click the blue marker next to "Search results"), click the magnifying glass and click "Generate bulleted list of links".

Proposed change to List of fictional non-binary characters edit noticeEdit

You are invited to join the discussion here, which is within the scope of this WikiProject. Presently, the edit notice for the List of fictional non-binary characters states that only character "is eligible for this list if the character or work they appear in is notable, specifically if the character is a main or recurring character. This is meant to keep the list meaningful and useful." This replaced the previous version which stated that only characters are eligible for the list if "their gender identity matches in some way human experience of gender." Comments from members of this project would be appreciated. Historyday01 (talk) 13:00, 15 June 2022 (UTC)

Use of the word "notable" to describe list entriesEdit

There is a dispute at List of vegetarians regarding how to describe members of the list. It is a basic list, listing people who have been identified as vegetarians. The inclusion criteria is limited to subjects who have an article on Wikipedia (blue links). Another editor wants to describe the subjects as "notable vegetarians" to "prevent spam". The list is stable and sourced, and addition of people without articles is minimal (unsourced additions are a bigger problem). I have opposed the use of the word "notable" because I don't think it is helpful to use Wikipedia terminology in an encyclopedic context. The discussion is going in circles, and I would welcome some third-party input at Talk:List of vegetarians#Adding "notable" to the lead. Betty Logan (talk) 00:54, 16 June 2022 (UTC)
