ZSSK Railway StationEdit

Hi everyone,

in Slovakia for the main purpose - try to manage the actual information about the company and upgrade the data, which can help the customers and the habitant as well for the projects or for their own knowledge. I had tried to change and update the newest data and information about the ZSSK profile in the English version. Link: I had tried to give after every paragraph citation with the source. I found out that you recommend "Avoid embedded links". Unfortunately, mandatory of our sources are web links. Do you mind giving me advice and showing examples of how to make it correctly? Or to push it somehow? Cause this article is quite old and has not been updated for a years. Adrianamala (talk) 10:24, 13 December 2021 (UTC)

@Adrianamala: Maybe, it would be better to translate the page from skwiki. ✍️ Dušan Kreheľ (talk) 17:33, 13 December 2021 (UTC)
@Dušan Kreheľ: May I ask how I am supposed to do that? Cause there is quite an old article, where any changes are under control and verification in spite of the fact that nobody edited it for a long more than a decade. Thank you in advance. Could we make "copy/pasty" from the actual Slovak version to the English version of the wiki profile? Adrianamala (talk) 17:03, 14 December 2021 (UTC)
The copy for the translate is there: User:Adrianamala/Železničná spoločnosť Slovensko and the link to edit.
Maybe that it is better to translate in the source code as in the Visual editor.

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.

Help on Eastern European languagesEdit


Our of boredom, I am trying to identify the languages of inscriptions on a fountain located in central Budapest. I could easily identify some languages such as Hebrew, Armenian, Russian, English, French, Spanish etc. but I have trouble with some, mostly Slavic, languages which I do not speak myself. I guess that they must include Czech (or Slovak), Slovene, Croatian/Serbian/Bosniak, Macedonian, Bulgarian and/or maybe others.

Translations of 'The place is ours':

  • Trg je naš / Площадьт е наш (pretty sure that's Bulgarian) / Naš trg / Nas trg / [unreadable] naše je námestie

Translations of 'Non potable water':

  • Водата не е за пиене / Voda ni pitna / Непитна вода / Nepitná voda / Nepitka voda / Voda nije za piće

Translations of 'Open lawn':

  • Ходенето по тревата е разрешено / Dozvoljeno je gaziti (ǧaziti?) po travi / Dozvoljeno gaženje trave

I also do not manage to identify the language in 3 other inscriptions for which glossaries easily available online did not help. Could it be Romani?

  • Náj lasó ráji / Ámáro szi o placo / Pécsár saj ustarén

Is anyone here able to tell which is which? Note that many inscriptions (such as in French and Greek) have spelling mistakes and inconsistent respect of diacritics.
