Proposal to make a Door County barnstar and a Reward Board listingEdit

In the last few years, some editors have been uploading photographs related to Door County. I don't think there is enough interest in the county to create a separate taskforce, but I still appreciate the new photos and want to encourage more. I propose to create a Door County barnstar under the auspices of WikiProject Wisconsin and use it for a WP:Reward Board listing and to describe it on the page for Category:Wikipedia requested photographs in Wisconsin. The listing would be for a special project to take and upload specific photographs to Commons, with a list of the suggested photographs available as a separate subpage on this Wikiproject. The photographs would be required to be natural photographs without a matte finish or color enhancements, although the glare from a camera flash would be allowed. The barnstar would be earned when 10 photographs from the uploads matching the suggested photographs list are used on Category:Door County, Wisconsin related articles prior to a specific date, such as December 31, 2022. The photos could be added to the articles by the original uploader or by anyone else, including me. The barnstar would not be awarded to someone who does not take the photographs and only uploads others' photos from other websites, or who only uses others' photographs from Commons on the articles. After the Reward Board listing is done, the barnstar could remain on this listing of templates here in case anyone finds a use for it. Does anyone object to, or have suggestions to improve on this plan? Does anyone want to work on the proposed list?--Epiphyllumlover (talk) 17:57, 3 April 2022 (UTC)

No one made any comments. If this was a bigger sort of proposal that could be grounds to reject it on the basis of "no consensus". Since this is a smaller thing I will go ahead with what I proposed on the basis of WP:Silent.--Epiphyllumlover (talk) 00:40, 19 April 2022 (UTC)
The Reward Board listing is at Wikipedia:Reward_board#Add new Door County photos to articles.--Epiphyllumlover (talk) 20:12, 14 May 2022 (UTC)
I'll try to remember this the next time I'm up there! Heeps of Wiki (talk) 03:24, 31 May 2022 (UTC)
This particular project is over early because of my soon-to-be site ban. But people can still take and add photos.--Epiphyllumlover (talk) 01:55, 6 August 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.

Tyrol BasinEdit

Would some members of this WikiProject mind taking a look at Tyrol Basin? There's lots of unsourced content in the article and it seems to have a bit of WP:NOTGUIDE feel to it. I recently did some basic MOS cleanup to try and improve the style of the article, but these were all reverted by a new editor named DyslexicNerd 01. I reverted back and posted something on both the article's talk page and the user's talk page to explain why, but perhaps some others might take a look as well. -- Marchjuly (talk) 01:40, 24 August 2022 (UTC)

Thanks for letting us know, I'll take a look over the article and respond on its talk page. JackFromWisconsin (talk | contribs) 03:33, 24 August 2022 (UTC)
Thank you JackFromWisconsin. -- Marchjuly (talk) 05:47, 24 August 2022 (UTC)
