Editor Review Assistance - Fortinet Company Page
Hello, I’m seeking assistance from qualified editors to review COI edit requests I post on the Fortinet article’s Talk page. Will appreciate anyone leaving a comment here saying it’s okay if I ping them in the future for these requests. At the present time there is only 1 open (technically ready to be closed) request, but likely others.
Context: Last year Fortinet became aware of an undisclosed paid edits warning label that was placed on the article about “Fortinet” in December 2020 after a sock puppet investigation found 2 accounts had made edits in 2018 as part of a broader campaign. Although Fortinet has hired disclosed paid editors in the past, we were not in a position to make uncontroversial reversions to any suspicious edits. Fortinet has been making COI Edit requests and seeking unbiased, disinterested editors to help improve the article in hopes to see the page’s quality improved per the warning label request to ensure that the Wikipedia community trusts the content there again. We’re hoping some of the editors involved with this Wikiproject will assist.Johnwikiwelton (talk) 19:12, 18 March 2022 (UTC)

User script to detect unreliable sources
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" Deprecated.com. Accessed 2020-02-14. (
John Smith "[https://www.deprecated.com/article Article of things]" ''Deprecated.com''. Accessed 2020-02-14.)
and turns it into something like
- John Smith "Article of things" Deprecated.com. Accessed 2020-02-14.
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.
