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

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.

What climate/fisheries photos do you need? (Climate Visuals)[edit]

Hi everyone, Climate Visuals is working to increase the photographs available to Wikimedia Commons in their library and is seeking insights from the Wikipedia community about the climate change photos you need and would use.

(The Climate Visuals library is designed to increase the impact and engagement of climate change photography and information via their creative commons photo gallery and evidence base).

What are the specific climate- and fisheries-related topics that you need photos for? What articles or topic areas are you working on, or planning to work on, that could use more compelling photos?

Please do let me know below and I’ll pass the message on. Climate Visuals will use this info to collect and curate existing photos that would fill these gaps. Thanks! TatjanaBaleta (talk) 12:26, 22 March 2023 (UTC)[reply]

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.

Fisheries subsidy[edit]

I have noticed that fisheries subsidies are severely undercovered. In particular, the World Trade Organization adopted an agreement on fishing subsidies in 2022,[1] but I did not find a single mention of this anywhere on Wikipedia. –LaundryPizza03 (d) 17:04, 16 September 2023 (UTC)[reply]

"Fishing industry in [country]" articles are severely underdeveloped or nonexistent[edit]

Currently, I decided to embark on creating draft for the fishing industry in Peru, believing it to be one of the countries without an article on its fishing industry. However, as I've come to notice, and by simply looking at Template:Fishing by country, it appears that articles in general of a country's fishing industry are heavily underdeveloped or are simply nonexistent. I'm aware there's an article proposal page, however, trying to put every single country without a fishing industry article on there would be incredibly overwhelming. And, as stated before, some countries do have an article, such as Yemen, however, it's INCREDIBLY underdeveloped; the Yemen article barely even has a couple of sentences. I think this is a pretty important issue, and I would like to solve it, but it would take a long time for me to write all these articles (I've already spent 3 months writing my draft on the fishing industry in Peru, and this is simply one single article). This is why I hope that fellow users will help in creating and expanding "Fishing industry in [country]" articles. Thank you! SonOfYoutubers (talk) 20:34, 28 March 2024 (UTC)[reply]

I am not in this project but quite active on articles about Turkey. Do you know which is the best country article please so I can look at that for a good structure and ideas for improving Fishing in Turkey? Chidgk1 (talk) 08:12, 31 March 2024 (UTC)[reply]
@Chidgk1 It's probable (meaning it might, but i'm not sure) that the structure could vary between different countries, but, for some good examples, you can look at my Draft:Fishing industry in Peru, and maybe Fishing in India.
Honestly, and unfortunately however, there really isn't many good examples for structure, as almost all of them (even the well-developed ones) have poor structuring. I've compiled a list here: User:SonOfYoutubers/fishing industry articles in country - Wikipedia to keep track of all the country articles, and you can look for yourself and see there isn't really any with good structure. But, as I said, you can look at my draft as an example. SonOfYoutubers (talk) 14:45, 31 March 2024 (UTC)[reply]
Thanks your draft looks good - suggest you submit it for review Chidgk1 (talk) 15:41, 31 March 2024 (UTC)[reply]
