Short track or short-track speed skating?Edit

Hi. Please see this discussion. Thanks. Lugnuts Fire Walk with Me 08:54, 16 February 2022 (UTC)

... at the Winter OlympicsEdit

Could someone fix the infobox-template for this sport Short-track speed skating at the Winter Olympics ? See also if my edits here at Template:Infobox Olympic sport were good ? Best regards Migrant (talkcontribs) 22:20, 2 April 2022 (UTC)

I am not familiar with the template, what should be happening? The only thing I notice is that there was a page that needed moving, which I've done, and maybe an issue with upper/lowercases in a link. Primefac (talk) 11:53, 3 April 2022 (UTC)
The template should show blue links for the short-track editions in the Winter Wlympics which were held in 1992, 1994, 1998, 2002, 2006, 2010, 2014, 2018, 2022 and including a demonstration-event at the 1988-edition. This requested move (Talk:Short-track speed skating#Requested move 15 February 2022) haven't been fully endorsed for all this editions though. They have only been done for the editions of 1988 (demonstration), 1992, 1994 and 1998, the rest of them are not moved yet. The years in the infobox olympic sport-template are showing wrong olympic years for short-track speed skating, they are showing summer olympic years. My thought is that it is because of the demonstration-event in 1988. Thanks for all help so far, @Primefac:. Best regards Migrant (talkcontribs) 13:24, 3 April 2022 (UTC)
Finally got the Winter Olympic years at least in the infobox but the italics for 1988 are not shown allthough it was a demomnstration-event that year. are also missing a link to the record-list article (List of Olympic records in short track speed skating), which seems to should have been added at the bottom alongside the medalists listarticle. @Primefac:. Best regards Migrant (talkcontribs) 19:01, 3 April 2022 (UTC)
I fixed the template so that 1988 appears in italics. Regarding the records, I think the name of the Olympic records article should be changed so that "short track" appears as "short-track" but I'm not sure. Nimrodbr (talk) 06:17, 4 April 2022 (UTC)

Chatuphum ChinnawongEdit

Can someone update the infobox of Chatuphum Chinnawong who now wins bronze due to the disqualification of the gold medalist. Thanks! MaskedSinger (talk) 16:35, 23 March 2022 (UTC)

This person has not been awarded a medal yet. Reallocation is a process and is not automatic. We’ll need to wait until medal reallocation is announced.Jeff in CA (talk) 11:01, 4 April 2022 (UTC)

Sport at the Olympics templatesEdit

Hey, Sportsfan 1234 (talk · contribs) removed a chunk within a template (Handball page, Volleyball one to only show the main sites and no links to men/women tournaments/rosters/qualification saying this template is called "Football at the Summer Olympics" not Football at the Summer Olympics Men's tournament, squads etc. There is a discussion held here. But i thought a wider discussion should be held to determine what should be used as the other ones (basketball, Field hockey, Water polo, Football (where he was also reverted) have those links shown (in my view correctly).

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.
