Hello. I would like to share a vision for a real-time fact-checking resource: Wikifact. I hope that the project is of some interest to those who contribute to Wikipedia in this science portal.

In the not-too-distant future, it may become possible for end-users to fact-check arbitrary portions of documents in word processors and Web browsers simply by selecting content, using context menus, and making use of crowdsourced, collaborative resources such as Wikifact. End-users would be able to select content from social media websites, news articles, digital textbooks, or arbitrary other documents and websites, and then open context menus providing options for exploring, e.g., fact-checking, the content.

I am hoping that more people will express interest on the project proposal’s website. I am hoping to publicize the project proposal. I am hoping to disseminate these ideas.

Please express your support for or opposition to the proposal on the project’s wiki page. We also welcome any of your comments, questions, or feedback with respect to the proposal, in particular ideas for improving it. Please feel free to share any of your ideas in our talk pages.

Thank you, AdamSobieski (talk) 09:47, 11 July 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

RFC about widespread theories without scientific backing[edit]

There is a possibly interesting RFC on the Terpene article talk page: Talk:Terpene#RFC_on_Cannabis_and_Terpenes. The issue is whether it is useful to include WP:MEDRS resources to document the (current) fact that a very widespread theory about terpenes currently has no (clinical) scientific backup. If this is of any interest to you, feel free to express your opinion there. Finney1234 (talk) 21:34, 26 July 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

CZ Biohub Organization draft[edit]

Hello! I'm here on behalf of Chan Zuckerberg Biohub, a nonprofit that partners with universities to advance medical science. If you would like to read my full conflict of interest disclosure, you can do so using this link.

I've tried to improve the Biohub page by drafting an Organization section that combines some parts of the page's existing History section with information about the Biohub's structure, how it operates, and the types of research projects it pursues. I put the draft forward in an edit request on the organization's Talk page and uploaded the full section draft to my user page. Would anyone at this WikiProject be interested in reviewing my request/draft? Any help or feedback would be deeply appreciated. Thanks!
