Newspapers.com application results in a waitlist email
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

I applied for newspapers.com access and it resulted in an email being sent to me through the platform saying the resource was waitlisted, which it isn't. I checked with @Samwalton9 to make sure it wasn't set as waitlisted and he confirmed it was not.

E-Mail:

Dear Cameron11598, Thank you for applying for access to Newspapers.com resources through The Wikipedia Library. There are no accounts currently available so your application has been waitlisted. Your application will be evaluated if/when more accounts become available. You can see all available resources at https://wikipedialibrary.wmflabs.org/partners/. Best, The Wikipedia Library

Samwalton9 moved this task from Incoming tasks to Major Bugs on the Library-Card-Platform board.

This was actually generated by me mistakenly. While troubleshooting T173990, I mistakenly set newspapers.com to waitlisted instead of Newspaperarchive. I almost immediately changed it back, so I'm sure when you went to go check it, you found that it was in the expected state.

Just a case of bad timing then? :)

Bad timing.
