COVID-19Edit

Shouldn't there be an article on COVID-19 / SARS-CoV-2 in animals? There's a small section about it in the COVID-19 article right now (cats, dogs, tigers; plus the possible animal origin) -- 65.94.170.207 (talk) 22:34, 12 April 2020 (UTC)

Methadone in canine / feline analgesiaEdit

I'm a lay person, so don't feel knowledgeable enough to edit the methadone article, so I've instead added a comment on the talk page highlighting the fact that the page has no information about its use in veterinary medicine. Does anyone feel up to the job? ~dom Kaos~ (talk) 20:02, 19 July 2020 (UTC)

Myxobolus cerebralis Featured article reviewEdit

I have nominated Myxobolus cerebralis for a featured article review here. Please join the discussion on whether this article meets featured article criteria. Articles are typically reviewed for two weeks. If substantial concerns are not addressed during the review period, the article will be moved to the Featured Article Removal Candidates list for a further period, where editors may declare "Keep" or "Delist" the article's featured status. The instructions for the review process are here. SandyGeorgia (Talk) 20:18, 26 December 2020 (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.
