Queens requested image backlogEdit
The backlog at Category:Wikipedia requested photographs in Queens has been reduced from 54 to 14 since the beginning of the month:
- 25 image requests had already been fulfilled.
- 1 request could be fulfilled with an existing picture.
- 2 non-notable articles were deleted.
- 2 image requests of people were moved to a subject-specific category.
- 10 requests were fulfilled with new pictures.
Of the remaining requests:
- 1975 LaGuardia Airport bombing, 2019 US Open – Day-by-day summaries, Rockaway Beach Hotel, and Sundrome will need to be fulfilled by archival images. There ought to be images of at least the latter two, although I couldn't find anything on Commons.
- Bellaire station, Hillside station (LIRR), Springfield Gardens station, and Westbridge station are all LIRR stations that no longer exist. The image requests could be fulfilled by archival images of the stations, or by new photographs of the stations' former sites.
- The cemetery at Lent Homestead and Cemetery neither publicly accessible nor visible from the street, as far as I could tell, but I did not snoop around too much as it was on private property. However the owner does offer occasional tours.
- Queens High School for the Sciences was behind a locked gate, at least on the weekend.
- The other four (Japanese School of New York, Japanese Weekend School of New York, Springfield Gardens, Queens, St. Agnes Academic High School (Queens)) all still exist; they were just too out of the way for me to get to.
A request for comment that may interest members of this project has been opened at Talk:Donald Trump § RfC: Should the lead section have any citations?. ––FormalDude 19:51, 30 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" 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
- John Smith "Article of things" Deprecated.com. Accessed 2020-02-14.
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.
Looking for peer review of Paul GoodmanEdit
Hi all, I'm looking for peer reviews of our article on the American public intellectual and prominent New Yorker Paul Goodman before it goes to FAC, if anyone would be so inclined: Wikipedia:Peer review/Paul Goodman/archive1. No prior experience necessary—just want to know how it reads for a general audience, given that the content gets a bit obtuse. czar 19:08, 11 May 2022 (UTC)
