Terminology related to religious freedom - apostasy - RFC[edit]

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.

Human Rights Service Norway[edit]

Says "HRS was established to work for a more well-functioning multi-ethnic society" - but it spreads anti-Muslim propaganda according to one academic source, and has been described as a right-wing government sponsored think tank.[1].

Importance of Julian Assange in Human rights[edit]

Currently set to low, I argue at Talk:Julian_Assange#Wikiproject_interest that it should be of mid impotrtance. Anyone like to just set an independent assessment or say something? NadVolum (talk) 17:01, 14 June 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
