Naocobau article stub needs a clean up[edit]

Hi Wikiproject members,

I was trying to fix a little bit the Naocobau stub, but the article is a mess. I think that someone with a better understanding of the language could improve it and format it properly. Thanks. Alexcalamaro (talk) 07:10, 2 October 2021 (UTC)Reply[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" 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.

Football bios[edit]

The purge of Oceania football (and specifically women's football) bios now seems to be targeting Fiji. If you can add reliable sources to existing stubs it will help them avoid deletion. IdiotSavant (talk) 10:05, 25 August 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

BLPs created by User:Davidcannon[edit]

There's a discussion on Wikipedia:Biographies of living persons/Noticeboard about some WikiProject Fiji BLPs. Davidcannon is an adminstrator that has created 600+ articles, many of which are BLPs. Standards were different when the articles were created, so referencing is spotty. In addition, link rot has meant many of the original supporting references were removed (despite many being recoverable). Given Fiji's recent history, many of these BLPs make claims of criminal behaviour (or being a victim of criminal behaviour) which nowdays requires referencing. The upshot is that we have a long and incomplete list of articles which need to be checked and referenced to modern standards. Where the article history includes an edit by Davidcannon with a summary of "dead links removed", the waybackmachine can be used to recover the link. Alternative references may also be able to be found on RNZ or in Fijian media. I've done a few already (since I'm currently doing a bit of cleanup, but can anyone else help? The list includes:

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.
