Gijs van HallEdit


I just edited a large portion of the page on Gijs van Hall. I think it may be more than a mere stub now. Anyone want to have a second look at it? T-Nod (talk) 11:02, 20 February 2022 (UTC)

Thanks for your edits of Gijs van Hall. I agree that the article now is at least a Start and I changed the classification accordingly. I made some minor edits, in particular of the opening line, according to the Manual of Style. My feeling is that the article as it is now leans too heavily on the Huygens ING biography cited in reference 1. More work is needed to obtain a more balanced article.

Ah, a Wikipedia is never done... ;) Dankjewel Ruud, start-class works for now! T-Nod (talk) 15:57, 23 February 2022 (UTC)

Piet MondrianEdit

I was hoping to list Piet Mondrian on OTD on 7 March (150th anniv of birth), but the article is ineligible due to vast swathes of unreferenced material. If this can be fixed quickly, he can appear. If not, he won't. Mjroots (talk) 18:29, 3 March 2022 (UTC)

Women in Red translation contest: April to June 2022Edit

At the beginning of April, WikiProject Women in Red is launching a three-month translation contest focused on increasing our coverage of women's biographies. As the Dtuch version of Wikipedia is one of the most popular sources for translation, members of WikiProject Netherlands may be interested in participating.--Ipigott (talk) 10:43, 25 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.
