To-do List:

To go on your to-do-listEdit

The article on the BBC Radio 4 series Great Lives stops dead at 2020. There have been some editions of this programme broadcast in 2021, such as Niall Ferguson plugging J.R.R. Tolkein in December 2021. Can updating of this article please go on your to-do-list? Many thanks, YTKJ (talk) 22:36, 26 December 2021 (UTC)

Melvyn Bragg's "In Our Time"Edit

The list List of In Our Time programmes needs updating. It stops dead at March 3 2022, but can have the details of the most recent programmes added, such as the one today (March 24 2022) on Antigone by Sophocles, which has Oliver Taplin and Edith Hall on it. YTKJ (talk) 09:14, 24 March 2022 (UTC)

Thank you to whoever did the update - it now appears to have been done. YTKJ (talk) 15:08, 30 March 2022 (UTC)

Requested move at Talk:Monopulse radar#Requested move 24 March 2022Edit

There is a requested move discussion at Talk:Monopulse radar#Requested move 24 March 2022 that may be of interest to members of this WikiProject. ASUKITE 23:58, 28 March 2022 (UTC)

Bookworm Radio ShowEdit

For those who might be interested in collaborating, I started a draft for Draft:Bookworm (radio show) by Michael Silverblatt, which appears to be a fairly influential radio show that has run for over twenty-five years. Feel free to contribute. TipsyElephant (talk) 15:48, 26 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.
