Has the concept of sanewashing sufficient coverage to be notable enough for an article? //Lollipoplollipoplollipop::talk 15:13, 7 February 2022 (UTC)

Probably not since a quick Google search only returns unreliable sources. You can establish notability yourself by creating the article and providing reliable sources. CentreLeftRight 20:23, 7 February 2022 (UTC)

Hi! If anyone wants to help I'd like some assistance with the article Critique of political economyEdit

I think people here probably especially could help with Marx critique of political economy.

Kind regards,

Gladly! I just finished that book and have pretty exhaustive page-by-page notes. Reaching out now

"Full Communism"Edit

FYI, the usage of Full Communism (edit | talk | history | protect | delete | links | watch | logs | views) is under discussion, see talk:Full Communism (album) -- (talk) 04:21, 27 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.

Movement to reactivate Wikiproject CooperativesEdit

I'm leading a movement to reactive WikiProject Cooperatives. To get this started, I've opened an RFC to clarify the scope of the Cooperative article. If you have any interest in cooperative economics, please join us either at the RFC or the Wikiproject homepage. IohannesChicaginiensis (talk) 21:14, 25 August 2022 (UTC)

Good idea!  . Regards, Goldsztajn (talk) 01:30, 24 September 2022 (UTC)
