A Sharp Eye on Wildlife PhotographyEdit

I had put links to my magazines in the article Wildlife photography, but now understand that Wikipedia doesn't like tips and how to guides. Any suggestions as to how to let people find the magazines? Charlesjsharp (talk) 22:14, 24 January 2022 (UTC)

Wikipedia isn't really the place to promote the magazine, better to promote it on social media sites like Twitter or Instagram. Ascendingrisingharmonising (talk) 13:49, 24 April 2022 (UTC)

Fujifilm FinePix F seriesEdit

Detailed, albeit promotional and unsourced article on the various cameras. Article has been this way a long time, so seeing if anyone with expertise can take a look and see if article can be improved.Slywriter (talk) 14:00, 27 March 2022 (UTC)


I have merged Cyanotype and “Cyanography” and expanded the article. Do other editors have suggestions/advice for further improvements? It remains rated ‘C’, as of 2018 (by User:Qono). Jamesmcardle(talk) 22:39, 17 April 2022 (UTC)

Look really good to me. I've upgraded this to a B article. Nice work. Qono (talk) 01:05, 25 April 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.
