Wiki Women in Red - a proposed User Group[edit]

Having worked for 2 years editing articles for Women In Red, a group of organizers have concluded that sourcing is one of the biggest hurdles in creating articles on women and non-binary genders. Though it is true that a lot of sourcing simply doesn’t exist, it is also true that there are sources, but we have no access to them. As these groups did not typically become subjects for academic study until the 1970s, many of the sources are not on line or are behind paywalls. Failure to include women and non-binary people in the encyclopedia presents a one-dimensional view of society and history. To address those issues, we are forming a new User Group aimed at referencing and support for like-minded groups and would appreciate your input or input from your supporters in our organizational process.

Women and the trail[edit]

Hi !

Seeing your page, I thought it would be very interesting to participate. I am huge fan of running especially of trail. However, I have not seen a trail section here for women. We could include Emilie Forsberg which had many victories in the European and World Championships.

Let me know what you think about this

Patti Paniccia draft[edit]

Hello! I'm wondering if anyone for this talk page is able to review my article draft for the surfer Patti Paniccia? The page has been under review for a while now (since I made many extensive edits), so I'm not sure how to proceed... Thank you!

Sports notability discussion[edit]

There is an interesting discussion at the Village Pump: Wikipedia:Village pump (policy)/Sports notability (with, currently, 13 subproposals - you might want to get a cup of tea before venturing over there). PamD 19:00, 12 February 2022 (UTC)[reply]

The outcome of this long-winded RfC has apparently struck out WP:NSPORTS in its current form. That's potentially quite good news for us as WP:NFOOTBALL, for example, tended to disadvantage women's football articles (particularly WP:FPL which was a nonsensical carnival of WP:BIAS). Heads up that there may be some unintended consequences, and/or a general uptick in the targeting of sports articles for deletion. Bring back Daz Sampson (talk) 12:01, 26 March 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.
