User script to detect unreliable sources

Main page: User:Headbomb/unreliable

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.

Looking for peer review of Paul Goodman

Hi all, I'm looking for peer reviews of our article on the American public intellectual Paul Goodman, a major social critic of the 1960s, before the article goes to FAC, if anyone would be so inclined: Wikipedia:Peer review/Paul Goodman/archive1. No prior experience necessary—just want to know how it reads for a general audience, given that the content gets a bit obtuse. czar 19:09, 11 May 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Growing Up Absurd FAC

Growing Up Absurd, our article on the 1960 book by Paul Goodman, is up for featured article status consideration. Since this WikiProject doesn't get these kind of nominations too often, I thought I'd share the link in case anyone from the project is interested:  Wikipedia:Featured article candidates/Growing Up Absurd/archive1
