Here are some tasks awaiting attention:

Tufting/rug makingEdit

I added some stuff to tufting, updated the process of rug making with new machines and technologies as well as a simple overview on how they work. Definitely feel free to add or change my edits, would be excited to hear from others on rug-making.--KnowledgeBySean (talk) 19:52, 5 April 2021 (UTC)

I'm in the process of updating the tufting article for a subject at university, please keep an eye out for anything you think needs adding or changing over the next few weeks Emilymaayy (talk) 23:31, 14 December 2021 (UTC)


Please review the assessmsnt on Talk:Brocade. It is currently listed as a Stub but deserves better.Grantmidnight (talk) 19:30, 14 January 2022 (UTC)

  Done When an article assessment is so clearly inaccurate, feel free to assess it yourself. Schazjmd (talk) 19:43, 14 January 2022 (UTC)

Iranian textilesEdit

I was looking for a page on the history of various Iranian textiles, specifically for the ethnic groups within Iran and I can't seem to find it. Can anyone help me? I did find however Persian handicrafts. PigeonChickenFish (talk) 01:15, 11 March 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.
