Request: check suggested definition of basebandEdit

I've stumbled on an indecisive discussion at Talk:baseband about definitions. It seems to have remained unresolved for years, with people talking about characteristics of a baseband signal in their own particular area without ever quite reaching a definition. Meanwhile, the definition in the article itself looks rather dodgy.

I've suggested a couple of potential definitions here, and would be grateful for comment. Musiconeologist (talk) 21:09, 14 September 2021 (UTC)

Request: check updated definition of protocol-control information - footnotes addedEdit

I added four reference citations to protocol-control information as footnotes. Perhaps someone might review? At present, this article is rated as Stub-Class, however, this update may justify increasing its rating to at least B-Class Wikipedia:Content_assessment. WDYT?

It's still a stub, and not a good one at that. It's a raw definition, one of many mass created with an automated process from an out of date, and sometimes inaccurate glossary. SpinningSpark 22:34, 23 January 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.
