Quick question[edit]

Regarding this comment - I actually don't think we should be indexing Elsevier at the moment, I'm going to double check that but what was the issue you figured out? Samwalton9 (WMF) (talk) 09:09, 26 August 2021 (UTC)Reply

Samwalton9 (WMF), hello friend. I clicked on the ScienceDirect link and got a permission denied error. The thing I figured out was that Wikipedia Library requires an application to view that journal, and I had not submitted an application. Therefore it's arguably not a bug, but rather just me not having access. Hope that helps. –Novem Linguae (talk) 09:14, 26 August 2021 (UTC)Reply
Ah! Technically this is a bug :) In the default search results we're wanting to only display accessible results (by limiting to Bundle i.e. no-application-required collections), so this actually is something we need to configure. We're going to add an option to remove that limit too, but for now this is a great find :) Samwalton9 (WMF) (talk) 09:18, 26 August 2021 (UTC)Reply
Samwalton9 (WMF), great, glad I could help. In the future if I find stuff, where should I report it? Phabricator, Talk:Library Card platform/Search, etc? –Novem Linguae (talk) 09:20, 26 August 2021 (UTC)Reply
That page is fine, or T269932. Samwalton9 (WMF) (talk) 09:24, 26 August 2021 (UTC)Reply

Wikimedia Community Developers Group[edit]

Hey Novem, I thought you might be interested in a Wikimedia user group I'm hoping to start — the Wikimedia Community Developers Group will be "composed of both volunteer and staff developers" with an aim to "foster closer collaboration between all developers". Any feedback would be greatly appreciated TheresNoTime (talk • they/them) 05:17, 22 December 2022 (UTC)Reply

Hey @TheresNoTime. Great idea. I like the idea of a group that can support neglected software. I've gone ahead and joined. If you'd like additional feedback feel free to ask more questions. Happy holidays :) –Novem Linguae (talk) 06:05, 22 December 2022 (UTC)Reply
