Issue accessing NewspaperARCHIVE.comEdit

When I log in to Newspaper Archive, I am unable to see full images. It says that I need to "Become a Member" and that "To View Full-Size Image Upgrade Account." Nonetheless, under "My Billing," it says that "Your subscription has been restarted," and that my membership plan is "internal access." And on Wikipedia, my library card platform shows that I still have access to the site. Any idea what might be causing this problem? Thanks, --Usernameunique (talk) 03:58, 27 December 2020 (UTC)

@Usernameunique: Unfortunately, I don't have any access to the platform itself, so I cannot help troubleshooting. I suggest you contact the site directly using their Contact Us details. Regards SoWhy 09:21, 27 December 2020 (UTC)
Here's their response: "It would appear that your account was only set to go for so long. As it stands, I've been told that Wikipedia would need to contact us directly to have the account renewed." SoWhy, is it possible that my access needs to be renewed from this end? Thanks, --Usernameunique (talk) 02:42, 15 January 2021 (UTC)
@Usernameunique: I can forward a request for renewal, yes, but you need to first request this using the Library Card platform. To do so, navigate to the your applications (click on your username on TWL and select "My Applications") and there click on "Request Renewal". Regards SoWhy 06:44, 15 January 2021 (UTC)
Done, thanks. Hopefully that was the issue. —Usernameunique (talk) 07:25, 15 January 2021 (UTC)
That did the trick. Thanks! --Usernameunique (talk) 18:57, 22 January 2021 (UTC)

NewspaperARCHIVE.comEdit

What does the message mean in the request process for the status: "Ungültige Bewerbung / Invalid request" (request sent on November 13, 2020)? --Privat-User (talk) 15:18, 4 February 2021 (UTC)

@Privat-User: There were probably two requests at the same time, so one was flagged "invalid" since there is no flag for "duplicate". You were sent details to your account on 17 November 2020. Please check your mailbox, including your spam folder, if you have not received it. Regards SoWhy 16:07, 4 February 2021 (UTC)
Hallo SoWhy, in meiner mailbox waren hierzu eine Mail zu ancestry.com (incl. Zugangsdaten) und die nachfolgende bzgl. NewspaperARCHIVE.com mit dem Inhalt: "Danke für deine Bewerbung für einen Zugang zu NewspaperARCHIVE.com über „The Wikipedia Library“. Deine Bewerbung war erfolgreich. Du wirst voraussichtlich eine bis zwei Wochen nach der Bearbeitung die Zugangsdaten erhalten. Du kannst die zugänglichen Inhalte in „Meine Zugänge“ einsehen: ..." Es kam bisher keine Mail mit den Zugangangsdaten, und bei "Meine Zugänge" leuchtet ein roter Balken "Ungültige Bewerbung". Das ist der Stand, danke für die Bemühungen. --Privat-User (talk) 16:36, 4 February 2021 (UTC)
@Privat-User: Komisch, lt. meiner Mailbox wurden die Daten versandt. Ich hab dir nochmals ne Kopie der E-Mail geschickt auf die Adresse, die du auch im Wikipedia Library Portal angegeben hast. Schau bitte auch im Spam-Ordner nach. VG SoWhy 17:46, 4 February 2021 (UTC)
Hallo SoWhy, danke und nein, auch im Spam-Ordner war im Nov. keine E-Mail, aber jetzt! Ich werde es später mal testen. VG --Privat-User (talk) 17:55, 4 February 2021 (UTC)

Newspapers.com account is now Registered Guest instead of full accessEdit

I had full access to newspapers.com, including publishers extra, but now when I log in, I don't have full access. Under Account Details on newspapers.com, it says: "You're currently a Registered Guest. This free subscription gets you access to search newspapers but you will not be able to view the full page. Get a paid subscription for access."

My list of individual access resources at https://wikipedialibrary.wmflabs.org/users/my_library/ lists Newspapers.com, so I'm not sure where the issue is.

It would be great if I could get access to newspapers.com again, I'm using it to write articles about art in Northern Nevada. Cxbrx (talk) 17:09, 28 February 2021 (UTC)

@Cxbrx: I don't handle those accounts but it sounds like your access needs to be renewed. Click the "My Applications" button on the top right side of the My Library page and then click the "Request renewal" button next to the source in question. Regards SoWhy 17:31, 28 February 2021 (UTC)
@SoWhy: Thanks! I saw the "My Applications" button but was thinking the were software applications (like wiki robots), not applications for access. Doh. Color me silly. I applied for a renewal. Thanks again. Cxbrx (talk) 00:23, 1 March 2021 (UTC)

Newspaperarchive access detailsEdit

Hey SoWhy! I was approved for a Newspaper archive account last July, but never received the promised access details ("You can expect to receive access details within a week or two once it has been processed.") Would you be able to help with this? Thank you! Ed [talk] [en] 20:29, 8 March 2021 (UTC)

@The ed17: I emailed you the details on 23 July 2020 to the email address you registered in the system. I have now forwarded you a copy of that email. Please check your spam filter as well. Regards SoWhy 07:26, 9 March 2021 (UTC)
I've got it now! Thanks, SoWhy. I'm not sure what email gremlin hit the first time around. Ed [talk] [en] 02:55, 10 March 2021 (UTC)

Newspaper Archive AccessEdit

Hi there SoWhy. I was granted access in February but when I go to the site by clicking on the link in My Library it says create a free 7 day trial. What am I missing? Mvitulli (talk) 22:21, 12 March 2021 (UTC)

@Mvitulli: I emailed you your account details on 2 February 2021 and forwarded you a copy of this email now. Please check your inbox (and maybe spam folder) and use the email address and password provided to login. If it still does not work, please report back. Regards SoWhy 15:00, 13 March 2021 (UTC)

Newspaper Archive AccessEdit

Hi, I applied for a renewal to my access to https://newspaperarchive.com/ 26 May 2021, the site started then redirecting me a page that it page was a 404 so I deleted the cookies and tried to sign in and it says "The username and/or password you have provided cannot be found in our records". I tried a password reset and get no email (yes I checked my spam folder(s)). Any help appreciated, Cheers KylieTastic (talk) 12:56, 27 June 2021 (UTC)

@KylieTastic: I had sent you new login information on 25 May 2021. I just forwarded you a copy of the message I sent, please check your inbox. Regards SoWhy 18:47, 27 June 2021 (UTC)
Got it, Thanks! No idea why I didn't get the first one :/ Many thanks. KylieTastic (talk) 19:21, 27 June 2021 (UTC)

Newspaper Archive accessEdit

G'day SoWhy. Like the others above I think my email with the account log in details got lost in cyberspace. I received an approval message on 8 July and have been looking out for the log in. Nothing in the spam folders. Could you kindly re-send the details. Many thanks!--Chromista (talk) 02:08, 10 August 2021 (UTC)

@Chromista: The email was sent on 9 July. I just forwarded you a copy. Regards SoWhy 07:15, 10 August 2021 (UTC)
All good now. Many thanks! --Chromista (talk) 07:31, 10 August 2021 (UTC)

NewspaperARCHIVE.com-Wrong email addressEdit

Hi SoWhy, I recently was approved for NewspaperARCHIVE.com access, but embarrassingly I have realized that I entered my email address incorrectly. I have updated my email address and left a comment on my application. Best, GPL93 (talk) 19:02, 26 January 2022 (UTC)

@GPL93: I just resent your email, please check. Regards SoWhy 19:52, 26 January 2022 (UTC)
I'm not seeing it yet. It should be the original email entered with "93" added. I'm not sure if that is any help. Best, GPL93 (talk) 20:02, 26 January 2022 (UTC)
@GPL93: I used that one but I seem to have a problem with the script I use to send out those emails. I'll have to check when I get home today and will hopefully be able to send it successfully then. Regards SoWhy 09:06, 27 January 2022 (UTC)
@GPL93: Just tried again and you should have gotten it now. However, you will have to use the "wrong" email to login but you can then change it in your settings. Regards SoWhy 19:38, 27 January 2022 (UTC)
I did receive it and I just switched out the email addresses. Thank you so much for your help on this. Best, GPL93 (talk) 19:42, 27 January 2022 (UTC)

Newspaper Archive login details not receivedEdit

I too have not received the login instructions yet. I got the email with my approval on 22 January, so it sounds like I need to ask you to resend the login info. Thanks! User:Allecher (talk) 22:36, 20 February 2022 (UTC)

@Allecher: I just resent the email, please check. Regards SoWhy 10:01, 21 February 2022 (UTC)

Newspaperarchive.com accessEdit

Hi, my newspaperarchive.com application the status was changed to "Sent to partner" over a month ago, but I haven't heard anything about it since. Should I have received an email by now? -Ljleppan (talk) 19:24, 14 March 2022 (UTC)

@Ljleppan: Yes. Please check your spam folder as well. Unfortunately, I cannot find any application with that username. Did you change it in the meantime? Regards SoWhy 21:01, 14 March 2022 (UTC)
Not in my spam folder, and the account has not been renamed. The revision history of the application is as follows:
  • Sent to partner Reviewed on Jan. 4, 2022, 6:33 p.m.

Thanks, received! - Ljleppan (talk) 07:59, 15 March 2022 (UTC)

NewspaperARCHIVE login detailsEdit

I previously requested access to NewspaperARCHIVE via The Wikipedia Library, and access was granted. However, the site is no longer accessible to me, and I can't seem to apply for access again. What happened? Maestro2016 (talk) 18:33, 4 April 2022 (UTC)

@Maestro2016: Accounts are limited to one year to avoid inactive accounts using up resources. If you find your account expired, you can request renewal by clicking the appropriate button on the "My applications" subpage of your Wikipedia Library user page. Regards SoWhy 18:36, 4 April 2022 (UTC)
Thanks for the quick response. I checked and access has been granted last month. However, I still haven't received login details for the site. Can you send my login details? Maestro2016 (talk) 18:41, 4 April 2022 (UTC)
@Maestro2016: No new credentials were sent out since it was a renewal. Your old credentials should still work using the email address you specified on the WL platform. Please check if you can login. If not, please report back and I'll see if I can find out what went wrong. Regards SoWhy 18:59, 4 April 2022 (UTC)
I checked my e-mail and apparently wasn't sent my login details? I can't seem to find any login details in my e-mail. Maestro2016 (talk) 19:27, 4 April 2022 (UTC)
@Maestro2016: As I said, I did not send you any login details because the old login was renewed. So you need to use those. Use the "Forgot username and/ or password?" option on their site if you don't remember those. I have no access to them. Regards SoWhy 20:04, 4 April 2022 (UTC)
Thanks! That worked. Maestro2016 (talk) 23:45, 4 April 2022 (UTC)
