Star-painted Ceiling[edit]

Hey there! Just started working on the wiki page star-painted ceiling, it is currently classed as a stub but as a part of my university course I am trying to bring up its rank. If anyone could take some time to read it and let me know how I could improve it I would be very grateful! Thankyou!Mayla Meru (talk) 04:51, 20 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]

If it was a stub beforehand, it is certainly a great improvement now, well done!! The body of the article is cited throughout. However, I would be inclined to list notable examples of starry ceilings, rather than randoms you've found on social media and photo sharing sites. Sionk (talk) 16:53, 21 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]

splanch[edit]

The text in the "splanch" page is inconsistent with the drawings there. I thought the problem was that the "day light basement was under the family room and started editing the text accordingly. I now think that was wrong ... the original problem is that the family room and living rooms are mislabeled in the diagram. Someone (who knows what they're doing) should fix this.

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

  • John Smith "Article of things" Deprecated.com. Accessed 2020-02-14. (John Smith "[http://www.deprecated.com/article Article of things]" ''Deprecated.com''. Accessed 2020-02-14.)

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.

Requesting Help for my Draft[edit]

Hello Architecture WikiProject! Unfortunately, my draft was declined for submission. In the improvement section, it says to reach out to a relevant wikiproject for some feedback before resubmitting for review. My draft is Draft:Victor F. “Trey” Trahan III, FAIA. I have been working on editing other pages to get the hang of wiki, and this is my first article. I have over 30 independent sources and looking back, I can agree with the reviewer that it reads somewhat like a CV. I am wondering if anyone would be willing to take a look and give me feedback so I can rewrite the draft before resubmitting it.I will take any and all suggestions. I am very determined to work on my writing and make it more encyclopedic-like. Thank you again!!! Architect110402 (talk) 13:53, 25 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]

List of architecure awards[edit]

Would some members of this WikiProject mind taking a look at List of architecture awards and assessing it for WP:Namechecking and WP:LISTCRUFT. It's not clear what the WP:LSC are for the list are other than the entry be an architecture award of some type, broadly contrued. Perhaps, the awards should be limited to those which are considered notable enough to have Wikipedia articles written about them per WP:CSC; in other words, an article about the award already exists (even in a some other language Wikipedia) or one could exist per WP:REDYES. List articles like this often end up have lots of entries added over time that might be minor compared to others and thus they probably need not be mentioned. -- Marchjuly (talk) 22:06, 28 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Victor Trahan[edit]

Would some members of this WikiProject mind taking a look at Victor Trahan and assessing it? The article was recently created via WP:AFC and I've done some minor cleanup, but it probably needs some more attention. The MOS:LEAD in particular might need some rewriting since some of the information it contains probably is better suited for the MOS:BODY of the article. -- Marchjuly (talk) 22:09, 28 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Does the term Al-Aqsa Mosque need disambiguation?[edit]

Al Aqsa Mosque (the large compound) vs Al Aqsa Mosque (the small southern building, from where prayers are led)
300,000 worshippers at the Al Aqsa Mosque (the large compound), facing the Al Aqsa Mosque (the small southern building, from where prayers are led)

Please comment at Talk:Al-Aqsa Mosque#Requested move 30 May 2022 - we are in need of editors who have the time to review the sources. Our Al-Aqsa Mosque article is about the small building. The large compound, also known as Al-Aqsa Mosque, is our article Temple Mount.

For reference:

  • Al Aqsa Mosque (Temple Mount) is the third holiest site in Islam
  • Al Aqsa Mosque (Temple Mount) was the first qibla in Islam
  • Al Aqsa Mosque (Temple Mount) gave its name to the Al Aqsa Intifada, and the al-Aqsa Martyrs' Brigades
  • Al Aqsa Mosque (Temple Mount) can hold over 300,000 people (note: the small building can hold only 5,000)
  • Al Aqsa Mosque (Temple Mount) was recently in the news after clashes between Israeli soldiers and Palestinians: the location of the route is shown here
  • Al Aqsa Mosque (building) is an important monument of early Islamic architecture
  • Al Aqsa Mosque (building) houses the Imam of the Al Aqsa Mosque
  • Al Aqsa Mosque (building) is where the Islamic prayers are led from

Per WP:PRIMARYTOPIC, what matters most is whether it is highly likely — much more likely than any other single topic, and more likely than all the other topics combined — to be the topic sought when a reader searches for that term. It is also important to assess how the term is used amongst scholarly sources - an assessment of this has been provided at the discussion, and it would be good to have it confirmed by editors who have the time to review the sources themselves.

Thank you.
