You get this message because you’ve previously participated in the Community Wishlist Survey. I just wanted to let you know that this year’s survey is now open for proposals. You can suggest technical changes until 11 November: Community Wishlist Survey 2019.

You can vote from November 16 to November 30. To keep the number of messages at a reasonable level, I won’t send out a separate reminder to you about that. /Johan (WMF) 11:24, 30 October 2018 (UTC)

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)
