Oklahoma Women in RedEdit

WikiProject Women in Red wants your biographies

Might I draw your attention to a new redlist of notable Oklahoma women who lack a wikipedia biography, in the form of Wikipedia:WikiProject Women in Red/Missing articles by dictionary/Encyclopedia of Oklahoma History and Culture - drawn from the "The Encyclopedia of Oklahoma History and Culture". Oklahoma: Oklahoma Historical Society.

Right now, there are more than five times as many biographies of men as there are of women on wikipedia - see the Wikidata Human Gender Indicators page. I hope this project will lend its support to addressing this imbalance by creating biographies for women within your project's scope, and perhaps by adopting the Encyclopedia of Oklahoma History and Culture redlist. More generally, WikiProject Women in Red has more than 300 redlists covering perhaps 100,000 notable women for whom we have no biography. thanks

Essential article neededEdit

Posting this here as the article requests page for this project seems pretty abandoned. A page really should exist on Wikipedia about Julius Jones, the prisoner on death row in Oklahoma accused of murder. The case is receiving international attention, people like Kim Kardashian and others have drawn attention to it, and I am surprised it doesn't yet exist on Wikipedia. The current Julius Jones article is about an American football player, but a look at the talk page shows many users are assuming this is the man on death row, hence why this article should exist as it's causing confusion. Wondered if anyone in this project would be interested in creating this article? Thank you. Inexpiable (talk) 14:38, 27 August 2021 (UTC)

@Inexpiable: I added this to the Article requests section at Portal:Oklahoma/Things you can do (diff). North America1000 03:38, 3 September 2021 (UTC)

Draft:James E. Stewart (civil rights leader)Edit

Can someone please look at this draft? It has been declined for reasons of tone. It is too obviously written to praise its subject. While its subject is notable, and should be praised for a distinguished career in civil rights, Wikipedia praises the great by describing them neutrally and trusting that the reader has common sense. Can someone take a look at neutralizing this draft? Robert McClenon (talk) 05:04, 9 October 2021 (UTC)

Immaculate Conception Cemetery (Oklahoma City) at AfDEdit

Immaculate Conception Cemetery (Oklahoma City) has been nominated for deletion, if any project members care to weigh in. Thanks! ---Another Believer (Talk) 23:50, 27 December 2021 (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.
