Konstantin Chernenko photographEdit

I noticed that Konstantin Chernenko has no photograph. It would be great to find one, even of low quality. Thriley (talk) 17:08, 3 April 2022 (UTC)

Ukrainian Insurgent Army war against Russian occupationEdit

There is a dispute over whether this article violates NPOV, and whether it reflects the mainstream scholarly opinion. It could use more attention by editors with experience editing historical articles and knowledge about this subject area. -Thucydides411 (talk) 07:48, 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" 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.
