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 "[https://www.deprecated.com/article Article of things]" ''Deprecated.com''. Accessed 2020-02-14.)
and turns it into something like
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.
I am having problems with Eluru-geo-stub / its category Category:Eluru district geography stubs. This does not display correctly on article pages and does not collect anything in its category. Yet it looks the same as other stubs that do work. Ideas/corrections? Thanks. Hmains (talk) 18:33, 23 May 2022 (UTC)
I have just finished emptying a stub category, Olivellidae, completely, except for the stub template. It had been a biological family of sea snails. But there were changes made to the classification, and I moved all the articles to other stub categories. The stub template and category are no longer needed. How do we delete them?

Hey everyone. There are around 830 unused (non-redirect) stub templates which you can see here Wikipedia:Database reports/Unused templates/2 (starting at 1453) and Wikipedia:Database reports/Unused templates/3. Wikipedia:Stub#Guidelines recommends a minimum of 60 pages for new templates, but is quite about existing templates. As I'm sure you project has more knowledge in this area than I do, can you please take a look at these and see if these are still needed or if they can be sent to TfD/CfD?
