User script to detect unreliable sources[edit]

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.

Panasonic COI edit requests[edit]

Hi! I've posted some COI edit requests at Talk:Panasonic, regarding adding coverage of Panasonic's solar energy business to the article. Sharing in case anyone here is interested in taking a look. Thank you for any help or feedback! Mary Gaulke (talk) 19:12, 21 June 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]


I've just noticed that RF, which used to be a redirect to Radio frequency has now become a disambiguation page as a result of a discussion at Talk:RF#Requested move 21 July 2022. Does anyone feel it is worth challenging this? SpinningSpark 17:26, 30 July 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

The closer has now undone the move and reopened the discussion if anyone here is interested in contributing. SpinningSpark 20:31, 30 July 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Proposed edits for Devialet article[edit]

I proposed edits to fix numerous problems on the Devialet article on the Talk page: Talk:Devialet#Devialet Request Edits for July 2022. I’m an employee of the company and can’t edit the page due to WP:COI - anyone from this project able to review the requests? Thank you.

Making a Samsung Galaxy Task Force[edit]

Since this wikiproject is active, i think its a good time to make a Samsung Galaxy task force. There is a TON of articles for improvement, like the Samsung Galaxy Tab series. i also think a task force will help organize articles related to Samsung Galaxy.

Reviewer needed for Synaptics requests[edit]

Hi editors! I am looking for help with a requested edit for software and hardware developer Synaptics. The company was one of the early pioneers in touchpad technology. I've shared a new draft for the page's Products information to replace material that is largely sourced just to Synaptics and provide what is (hopefully) a more encyclopedic overview of the company's products. As well, I've asked about removal of an "Industry alliances" section that is not well sourced and very confusing. I'm an employee of the company and have a conflict of interest so I shouldn't make the edits myself and have posted a request instead. Can anyone here give feedback on my draft or point me to any other helpful venues? Thanks, Sheryl at Synaptics (talk) 19:11, 7 November 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Still hoping for help updating this information. Looking through the members list for this project, a lot seem to not be active, but I see User:Omegatron and User:Jw21 have edited fairly recently. Do either of you have some time available to review my request? Thanks. Sheryl at Synaptics (talk) 22:25, 17 November 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Project-independent quality assessments[edit]

Quality assessments by Wikipedia editors rate articles in terms of completeness, organization, prose quality, sourcing, etc. Most wikiprojects follow the general guidelines at Wikipedia:Content assessment, but some have specialized assessment guidelines. A recent Village pump proposal was approved and has been implemented to add a |class= parameter to {{WikiProject banner shell}}, which can display a general quality assessment for an article, and to let project banner templates "inherit" this assessment.

No action is required if your wikiproject follows the standard assessment approach. Over time, quality assessments will be migrated up to {{WikiProject banner shell}}, and your project banner will automatically "inherit" any changes to the general assessments for the purpose of assigning categories.

However, if your project has decided to "opt out" and follow a non-standard quality assessment approach, all you have to do is modify your wikiproject banner template to pass {{WPBannerMeta}} a new |QUALITY_CRITERIA=custom parameter. If this is done, changes to the general quality assessment will be ignored, and your project-level assessment will be displayed and used to create categories, as at present.

There is a requested move discussion at Talk:IPhone 6S#Requested move 3 May 2023 that may be of interest to members of this WikiProject. – MaterialWorks 14:50, 10 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

PMU and SMU[edit]

I noticed these articles, Power Management Unit (edit | talk | history | protect | delete | links | watch | logs | views) and System Management Unit (edit | talk | history | protect | delete | links | watch | logs | views), they are written to seem to only exist on Macintosh computers, but PMUs and SMUs exist all over the place, not just as Apple parts. Shouldn't these be rewritten to show the wider world of PMUs and SMUs ? -- (talk) 13:57, 14 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Yes. You are welcome to expand those articles. Constant314 (talk) 14:01, 14 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
