Error in list[edit]

Hello! There is a mistake in your listing. B's-LOG is not and never has been a blog hosting service. It is a professionally run gaming magazine by Kadokawa as a sister publication to Famitsu. Please fix this - it has an editorial department. Londonbeat41692 (talk) 04:22, 31 March 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@Londonbeat41692: what page in the listings are you talking about? Headbomb {t · c · p · b} 01:36, 1 April 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Hello, I'm a little confused now myself as I thought I left this comment on the talk page of the place I found it (it's not coming up on that page now), but there was something that listed B's LOG under "blog hosting services" in what looked like parameters for a bot or something of the like.Londonbeat41692 (talk) 02:31, 1 April 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
The only place it's "listed" is at User:JL-Bot/Citations.cfg, which is the exclusion list for WP:JCW/TAR and WP:CITEWATCH. Which means B's-LOG won't be listed as a Blog hosting service. Headbomb {t · c · p · b} 02:39, 1 April 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Thank you for the clarification! Looks like it's good then. Londonbeat41692 (talk) 03:15, 1 April 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Marlowe portrait[edit]

This article has a ref named "Corpus letter" and so appears at Wikipedia:WikiProject Academic Journals/Journals cited by Wikipedia/Questionable1 and Wikipedia:WikiProject Academic Journals/Journals cited by Wikipedia/Publisher13. However, this Corpus letter is a Corpus Christi College, Cambridge publication. I've never come across these pages before, so I don't know how much this matters. Gråbergs Gråa Sång (talk) 10:03, 13 June 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@Gråbergs Gråa Sång: It doesn't matter a whole lot. That said, it's a mismatch to Cureus, so that's rather easy to fix. It won't be listed there tomorrow. Headbomb {t · c · p · b} 13:29, 13 June 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

WP:JCW reaches 3 million total citations![edit]

With the latest dump, the WP:JCW compilation has reached 3M citations for its analysis. 2.75M come from {{cite journal}}, the rest from a variety of templates. Mind blowing!

Again thanks to User:JLaTondre for making this possible. Headbomb {t · c · p · b} 20:27, 22 May 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

FYI re Myia[edit]

"Journal" Myia is listed in position #89 of the top most cited ... but the linked article is not about a journal. Esculenta (talk) 13:48, 5 June 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

The compilation shows our Myia entry. The lack of color-coding shows that the current Myia article isn't about the journal. To "fix" this, simply create the journal article at Myia (journal). Headbomb {t · c · p · b} 07:29, 25 June 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

JCW-row searching[edit]

I'm looking at {{JCW-row}}; and assume this is the best place for discussion.

The search links are created by this markup:

<small class="nowrap">[//en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Special:Search&search={{{search}}}&fulltext=Search Wikipedia] <sub>([//en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Special:Search&search={{{search}}}+journal&fulltext=Search J]·[//en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Special:Search&search={{{search}}}+magazine&fulltext=Search M]·[//en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Special:Search&search=The+{{{search}}}&fulltext=Search T])</sub></small><br>
<small class="nowrap">[http://www.google.com/#hl=en&q=%22{{{search}}}%22+-wikipedia Google] <sub>([http://www.google.com/#hl=en&q=%22{{{search}}}%22+journal+-wikipedia J]·[http://www.google.com/#hl=en&q=%22{{{search}}}%22+magazine+-wikipedia M]·[http://www.google.com/#hl=en&q=%22The+{{{search}}}%22+-wikipedia T])

The Google searches put the search string in quotes (%22), but the Wikipedia searches do not. I propose that we should always do so; to avoid issues like this, where the search string is The Municipal Journal and the results are less than helpful.

Here are a few more misspellings that I've fixed in significant numbers recently and may recur:

Some less academic sources were widely cited with typos. Would a sister WikiProject be interested? Similarly, they're fixed as of a recent date but may be of future interest:

...and a few relevant publishers

Hope that helps, Certes (talk) 14:07, 1 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@Certes: as far as the compilation goes, you only need to make sure the redirect is tagged with {{R from typo}} or {{R from incorrect name}} or similar. Headbomb {t · c · p · b} 15:41, 1 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Same for {{R from miscaps}} and {{R to diacritics}} which get their own pages. Headbomb {t · c · p · b} 15:49, 1 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
