I am packing up my house and moving do a different time zone, selling my home, etc, ..., etc.. I am very happy the OAuth is done before this! Just a heads up that I will still try to fix bugs, but new features (other than hdl, which are super easy), will be slow for a while. Keeping up with my day job will be hard enough. Feel free to delete this after you have read it. Thanks. AManWithNoPlan (talk) 23:29, 24 June 2019 (UTC)

@AManWithNoPlan: No worries, you've done more than anyone I know of in the recent years and the major parts of the bot that needed love have received it. Most of the requests I have are nice things to have more than critical things. Good lock with the job and the move! I'll be patient until you can spend some more time on the bot, or that others step up. Feel free to pick up low hanging fruits over the big complex ones though! On-wiki impact is often not related to coding complexity. For example, the journal caps things, if implemented, would save me a butt ton of work on WP:JCW since I could cleanup all "Journal of physicsJournal of Physics" through the bot, without having to double check (or wait till the next dump) to see if there was any Journal of physicsJournal of Physics type of cleanup in need of doing. Or it lets the way more powerful Citation bot handle them + bring its other benefits, instead of having to use the way-more-limited User:JCW-CleanerBot.
Scale that up to ~1000 of such entries per dump, and that's saving me 10+ hours per dump, and unleashing the full power of citation bot on thousands of additional articles. Headbomb {t · c · p · b} 23:39, 24 June 2019 (UTC)
It is ramping up now. FYI, I have written PHP code on my iPhone before, but it is lame. AManWithNoPlan (talk) 23:54, 7 July 2019 (UTC)
@AManWithNoPlan: what is? Headbomb {t · c · p · b} 00:57, 8 July 2019 (UTC)
my moving time suck and living on the road. AManWithNoPlan (talk) 02:25, 8 July 2019 (UTC)

Web to JournalEdit

Thanks for fixing my citations! I was aware that the links I grabbed were usually from journals, but I formatted them all as if they were webpages. I meant to go back and fix it post publishing, but I am grateful that you were able to. Utopes (talk) 01:27, 9 July 2019 (UTC)

@Utopes: Not sure what page(s) you're talking about, but it's usually just pushing a button (see WP:Citation expander or WP:UCB). So it's really not that much work :p. Headbomb {t · c · p · b} 03:13, 9 July 2019 (UTC)
See also User:Headbomb/Tips and Tricks for some advance tricks when the bot doesn't want to cooperate (basically keep {{cite journal |doi=10.1234/whatever}} and then click the citations button). Headbomb {t · c · p · b} 03:15, 9 July 2019 (UTC)
Chromium(III) telluride, my apologies Utopes (talk) 17:59, 9 July 2019 (UTC)
@Utopes: Yeah, I figured that was it after I looked at my 'thanks' log. No worries, I hope you find the above links useful. Headbomb {t · c · p · b} 18:00, 9 July 2019 (UTC)

@Randykitty: btw, I'm not the creator, that's Notgain (talk · contribs) Headbomb {t · c · p · b} 17:19, 18 July 2019 (UTC)
You originally created this as a redirect, so Twinkle sees you as the creator... --Randykitty (talk) 18:24, 18 July 2019 (UTC)
I'm aware yes, just saying you probably want to notify them rather than me, although they've been active and are watching the page, so they'll likely know. Headbomb {t · c · p · b} 19:14, 18 July 2019 (UTC)

Peter Lang (publisher)Edit

Hi, I see you categorized their journals as being published by a non-profit. However, the charity's website says that the company was sold to management, so it would appear not to be non-profit any more. But perhaps I'm missing something? --Randykitty (talk) 08:23, 19 July 2019 (UTC)

I categorized the journals as being published by the publisher Peter Lang. Not sure what's non-profit got to do with it. Headbomb {t · c · p · b} 09:58, 19 July 2019 (UTC)
  • @Randykitty: Oh that. Copy-paste mistake. No idea if it's relevant or not, feel free to remove. Headbomb {t · c · p · b} 10:44, 19 July 2019 (UTC)
