Zigmas Zinkevičius' writings on the Polish language and Poles in LithuaniaEdit

I started the discussion questioning reliability of Zigmas Zinkevičius here: Wikipedia:Reliable_sources/Noticeboard#Zigmas_Zinkevičius'_writings_on_the_Polish_language_and_Poles_in_Lithuania. You are welcome to comment Marcelus (talk) 21:21, 6 April 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.

Order of the Cross of Vytis and lt.wikiEdit

The en.wiki article has links through Wikidata to articles in several other wikis but not lt.wiki, with Wikidata Q1507943, created 2017. The lt.wiki article is |Vyčio Kryžiaus ordino Didysis kryžius and has a separate Wikidata entry Q23775638, created 2016. (Higher number, earlier creation? I find Wikidata confusing.) I don't read Lithuanian. Is the lt.wiki article really about only the "Grand Cross of the Order of the Cross of Vytis " as Wikidata says, while the others are about the whole order? Is there a lt.wiki article about the order? Can they be connected? Over to some Wikidatasavvy Lithuanian-reader to sort this out, please! PamD 11:43, 3 July 2022 (UTC)

PamD, with the aid of automatic translation it seems that in lt Wikipedia there are articles for
Grand Cross of the Order of the Cross of Vytis
Officer's Cross of the Order of the Cross of Vytis
Commander's Grand Cross of the Order of the Cross of Vytis
Commander's Cross of the Order of the Cross of Vytis
Knight's Cross of the Order of the Cross of Vytis
Medal of the Order of the Cross of Vytis
Flag of the Order of the Cross of Vytis
but Order of the Cross of Vytis is a redirect to Grand Cross of the Order of the Cross of Vytis.
So Wikidata is correct, but a possible solution would be for a Lithuanian editor to write an article about the Order of the Cross of Vytis. TSventon (talk) 13:08, 3 July 2022 (UTC)
PamD, Another possibility would be to add a local link to lt Wikipedia, see Help:Interlanguage links#Local links. TSventon (talk) 09:00, 4 July 2022 (UTC)
