Night Attack at TârgovișteEdit

Most sources present the Night Attack at Târgoviște as a Wallachian victory but the article says it was inconclusive. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2001:B07:6469:985D:1543:BCC2:6DE0:F838 (talk) 23:33, 17 December 2021 (UTC)

Ion Antonescu as an Albanian from Romania, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Albanians_of_RomaniaEdit

I've watched the page about the albanians from Romania and i saw that Ion Antonescu was there, the only sources backing this claim are of fringe theories coming from unreliable journals or radios, actual historiography doesn't mention any albanian ancestor of him. I request if you can give a look at it. Sources: 1) https://books.google.it/books?vid=ISBN9780198221265&printsec=frontcover&redir_esc=y&hl=it#v=onepage&q&f=false 2) https://link.springer.com/chapter/10.1057/9780230502093_3 3) https://archive.org/details/romaniancassandr00watt/page/390/mode/2up 4) https://books.google.it/books?redir_esc=y&hl=it&id=8taGDAAAQBAJ&q=antonescu#v=snippet&q=middle-class%20family&f=false — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2001:B07:6469:985D:3177:EED6:6C88:C625 (talk) 22:56, 19 December 2021 (UTC)

I removed the claim since apparently only two scholars claim this and only in newspaper interviews as far as I know. Maybe this will be more talked on in the future but it seems like a fringe view at the moment. Super Ψ Dro 17:58, 20 December 2021 (UTC)

Peer review requestedEdit

I would highly appreciate all comments at Wikipedia:Peer review/Kingdom of Hungary (1000–1301)/archive3. Borsoka (talk) 02:59, 1 January 2022 (UTC)

Request for FAC reviewsEdit

The Edict of Torda, the first law to sanction the existence of a radical denomination in Europe, is currently a FA candidate and it needs comprehensive reviews. Thank you for your time and work. Borsoka (talk) 03:50, 2 January 2022 (UTC)

Asking for a 3rd opinion on GelouEdit

Hi, I'm asking for a 3rd opinion about the relevance of adding a mention of King Peter's coin in an article about the Vlach duke Gelou.

The article in question is this one - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gelou
The edit in question is this one: https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Gelou&diff=1062479851&oldid=1062477853
The talk is here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Talk:Gelou (under "King Peter and Gelou")
We asked for a 3rd opinion 13 days ago but nobody came - https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Wikipedia%3AThird_opinion&action=historysubmit&type=revision&diff=1062479770&oldid=1062345421

I would appreciate if anyone can come and offer their opinion. It's a question of whether adding a mention of King Peter's coins is relevant to the article or not. The arguments of both sides are present on the talk page. Thank you. TheGoldAge (talk) 10:14, 14 January 2022 (UTC)

Please help meEdit

Greetings,

Hi, I am User:Bookku, my expectations to get expanded Black sea related articles failed miserably. I am expecting and requesting at least some help in expanding the article Draft:List of erstwhile slave trading townships with regions surrounding Black sea. In next steps I wish to have a proper map showing erstwhile slave trading townships across black sea.

Thanks and warm regards

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" Deprecated.com. Accessed 2020-02-14. (John Smith "[https://www.deprecated.com/article Article of things]" ''Deprecated.com''. 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.

SanaEdit

If anyone can give a little help at Draft:Sana (drink), that would be great. This appears to be a notable drink, but the sources provided aren't sufficient and we need someone who can pull up Romanian sources. valereee (talk) 21:14, 17 May 2022 (UTC)

Iron Gates MesolithicEdit

Hi, I've been editing the Iron Gates Mesolithic wikipedia stub page for a few weeks for a university assignment and have written about 2000 words on it. Was wondering if anyone could give it a look and give me some feedback on how to improve it by any chance? Thanks. Kerm22 (talk) 07:19, 22 May 2022 (UTC)
