I'm getting the taskforce back together, Man!


As the title suggests, I'm rebooting the North American History taskforce. It would kind of help if I wasn't the only one who was in it. I was planning on making it into a portal when we get enough participants. Please help! I'm lonely... Ghinga7 (talk) 19:31, 6 August 2020 (UTC) P.S. I'm leaving similar messages at a couple of wikiprojects and the talk page of the History of North America article. Hope you can join!Reply

User script to detect unreliable sources


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.

Project-independent quality assessments


Quality assessments by Wikipedia editors rate articles in terms of completeness, organization, prose quality, sourcing, etc. Most wikiprojects follow the general guidelines at Wikipedia:Content assessment, but some have specialized assessment guidelines. A recent Village pump proposal was approved and has been implemented to add a |class= parameter to {{WikiProject banner shell}}, which can display a general quality assessment for an article, and to let project banner templates "inherit" this assessment.

No action is required if your wikiproject follows the standard assessment approach. Over time, quality assessments will be migrated up to {{WikiProject banner shell}}, and your project banner will automatically "inherit" any changes to the general assessments for the purpose of assigning categories.

However, if your project has decided to "opt out" and follow a non-standard quality assessment approach, all you have to do is modify your wikiproject banner template to pass {{WPBannerMeta}} a new |QUALITY_CRITERIA=custom parameter. If this is done, changes to the general quality assessment will be ignored, and your project-level assessment will be displayed and used to create categories, as at present.

Draft for the Climate of North America


Hiya fellow North Americans. I recently worked on some of Wikipedia's articles for "Climate of..." various continents. I was surprised there isn't an article for Climate of North America, but rather one for all of the various areas. I think it's a worthy article, and I hope you do too, since it would be a lot to do on my own. I have posted about this on the talk page for the weather WikiProject as well. See Draft:Climate of North America. ♫ Hurricanehink (talk) 00:35, 26 February 2024 (UTC)Reply
