New Wikibot BadCitationBot[edit]

I've created a new Wikibot with the aim of checking citations for valid contents (right now it only checks for suspicious journals, social sites and weak or missing dates).

If you would like to test or contribute to it you can clone it from its git repository: http://github.com/awiebe/mw-citation-check

Remember to run pip -r requirements.txt

Just give it a list of articles you want checked and it will spit out information about whether it has things wrong with it. Bad date formats, suspicious journals and social media links

Spam on Norton AntiVirus page[edit]
