Comments needed on painting FAC[edit]

Hello everyone. I'm trying to bring Tornado Over Kansas, a painting by American Regionalist John Steuart Curry, to FA-level, but the nomination is in need of reviews in the next few days before it gets archived. Please leave a comment at Wikipedia:Featured article candidates/Tornado Over Kansas/archive1 if you have time. Thanks, GeneralPoxter (talkcontribs) 00:49, 17 June 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Allegorical Painting of Two Ladies, English School[edit]

I just created a draft for the painting Allegorical Painting of Two Ladies, English School which has been in the news due to a UK export ban. It is quite an interesting painting. Any help would be appreciated! Thank you, Thriley (talk) 05:16, 12 December 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Olympic Art Competition[edit]

  • Comment We need to address participation in the Olympics arts competitions. Which considering how well they were covered, the level of notability of the participants and other things, I am thinking do not show at all that someone is notable. Most of our articles on such people are like this Raphaël Van Dorpe, which has one non-significant mention, and no sustained coverage. Most of them do show up in some massive databases on artists, but at least on my first glance I at a few over the last 2 months I have not been seeing anything that comes close to showing significant coverage. These seem to in the main have been mass created by a user Lugnuts, who at times was creating sub-stub articles at the rate of 1 a minute. He created I believe tens if not hundreds of thousands of such articles. He has since been banned from creating new articles. So seeing an article created by him sourced only to a page like this [1] is not a good indication there are no other usable sources. I did some searching, and in this case I did not even find any references that were not Wikipedia mirrors. I have no good sense of what it takes to show an artist is notable, but I am sure there is no reasonable presumption that all these were notable. has over 1,700 articles, and this may not include the medalist sub-cats. I am also not convinced even the medalists are default notable. This is a matter those with background in arts articles need to consider. This should not be a reflection of sports standards, which it largely seems to have been until now.John Pack Lambert (talk) 15:46, 15 February 2022 (UTC)[reply]

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" Deprecated.com. Accessed 2020-02-14. (John Smith "[http://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.
