For what it's worth, I just performed an RD1:

Sounds great. For what it's worth, I let the individual who originally contacted us know that multiple people were working on resolving this and they seemed impressed that we were jumping on it so diligently.

I would have guessed that "nazi" on the list would pick up "nazis" but the attached screenshot suggests otherwise (if that works, i'never uploaded an image here before)

Looking good so far, thanks.

I do see a new addition, good sign.
Just a quick comment to emphasize that addressing copyright issues is far easier when looking at them close to contemporaneously. They become more difficult as they get older. I'll explain if this isn't obvious.

And I feel bad, that I haven't even thanked whomever is responsible for a timely solution. Thanks, it will make the process better.
I see this is marked as resolved.

If I may make one more related point - when I copy and paste an article title to use in some way, I often copy it from the top of the article, but sometimes. I copy it from the url.
Thanks for the incredibly timely response (maybe we could use you at OTRS).

I've thought a little bit more about the privacy concern. I can appreciate the decision not to publish a database of search queries because of the realization that people occasionally, either deliberately or accidentally, included personal information in the search query. However, I think that case can be distinguished from this case in two ways.

I do get that there could be some issues with the search string. Certainly not a problem in most circumstances but there can be a situation where it could be problematic. I don't see such an issue with page number although I recognize that having to convert the string to remove the search and leave in the page number may be tricky.
This is potentially important. I had begun using this feature to convert their Google books URLs but I abandon it after getting complaints that the converted URLs did not identify the page. I had originally requested that the conversion automatically leave up the page parameter so it would be easy to fill in, but it seems like it would be better if the URL took you directly to the page. I don't know the history that led to the decision to switch to the base URL and perhaps it's not something that can be easily undone because they may be other problems of which I am unaware, but as constituted the reference conversion option is useless to me.

My next test failed. I'll put together something a bit more formal.
I see this is marked as resolved, but I just tried it but did not seem to work the way I had expected.

This change would be enormously helpful for editors trying to improve references. Many editors leave a bare url plus a page number (or range of pages). Converting a pure bare url to a proper reference is often trivial (just click on Convert), but the existence of page numbers makes it a tedious task. Automatically including the page and pages field would make this much easier.
