A family tree template from[edit]

I created Template:Lineage + Module:Lineage (originally it:template:discendenza) as a simpliest alternative to Template:Tree chart. Can someone verify the doc subpage? Thanks. --M.casanova (talk) 09:02, 18 October 2020 (UTC)[reply]

Really nice! I love the clean-looking output. MichaelMaggs (talk) 10:03, 18 October 2020 (UTC)[reply]
I thought I'd use it to update Wuthering_Heights#Family_relationships_map, but is there any way to show marriages, and have multiple people on the first line, not just a single progenitor? MichaelMaggs (talk) 10:11, 18 October 2020 (UTC)[reply]
@MichaelMaggs: Sorry, it's only to show offspring of a single family (e.g. Lincoln family on italian Wikipedia). --M.casanova (talk) 10:38, 18 October 2020 (UTC)[reply]

Mabel (singer) & talk page discussion[edit]


We are a bit confused as to whether the term neice applies when the parent and their sibling are half-brother and sister.
Mabel's mother is Neneh Cherry, and she is half-sister to her sibling, Eagle-Eye Cherry.
I have never heard anyone differentiate between niece and nephew when their parents are half-siblings. Talk:Mabel_(singer)#Don_Cherry

Mabel: "She is the youngest child of English music producer Cameron McVey and Swedish singer Neneh Cherry.[7] Through her mother, Mabel is the niece of singer Eagle-Eye Cherry.[8] Her sister Tyson, half-sister Naima and half-brother Marlon Roudette are also singers."

Neneh: "Cherry was born as Neneh Mariann Karlsson in Stockholm, Sweden, the daughter of Monika "Moki" Karlsson (1943–2009), a Swedish painter and textile artist, and the musician Ahmadu Jah (1936–2018). Jah was born in Sierra Leone, West Africa, the son of a tribal chief, and went to Stockholm to study engineering at university.[5]

Cherry's parents separated early and her mother married the influential American jazz musician Don Cherry, who helped raise Cherry since birth. Cherry took her stepfather's surname.[3]

From her mother's side, Cherry also has a half-brother, musician Eagle-Eye Cherry. From stepfather Don Cherry's side, she has a stepsister, violinist Jan Cherry, and a stepbrother, jazz musician David Ornette Cherry. Through her father Ahmadu Jah's marriage to Maylen Jah (née Bergström), Cherry is the half-sister of singer Titiyo and record producer Cherno Jah."

Eagle-Eye: "son of American jazz artist Don Cherry and Swedish painter/textile artist Monika Cherry (née Karlsson). He is the half-brother of singer Neneh Cherry (his mother's daughter with Ahmadu Jah) [...] Other half-siblings are violinist Jan Cherry, Christian Cherry, and jazz musician David Ornette Cherry."

Can anyone shed some light on the matter? It gets confusing with the differing parents of all the children!
Any help would be appreciated :¬) Chaosdruid (talk) 13:27, 25 July 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Assistance expanding a family tree[edit]

Hello! I write seeking help with a family tree I would like to update with two recent entries I’ve written, but am struggling with how to do so.

The family tree is at Chamorro (family) and the people I’d like to add are:

  • Juan Sebastián Chamorro, son of Xavier Chamorro Cardenal and Sonia García Cordova (who is not currently displayed either—ideally she would be added too)

I tried looking into the source code and while I’ve been able to tinker with people already listed, I couldn’t suss out how to add more (and in the appropriate place). If anyone is willing to lend me a hand, I would be grateful! Innisfree987 (talk) 20:00, 1 August 2021 (UTC)[reply]

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" Accessed 2020-02-14. (John Smith "[ Article of things]" ''''. 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.
