Future meetups[edit]

Hi, thanks for coming to Oxford 18 last weekend. At the meetup, some people were asking of a good way to find out about future meetups in other parts of the country. Visit one or more of the following, and "watch" it:

Then, as events get added, you'll find out through the watchlist of the relevant site. The next Oxford meetup is on 17 August. --Redrose64 (talk) 20:26, 26 July 2014 (UTC)

The next Cambridge meetup is 20 September; the next Oxford is 21 September. You might like to contact Robevans123 (talk · contribs) regarding that, he sometimes travels from Cambridge to Oxford. --Redrose64 (talk) 19:57, 19 August 2014 (UTC)
@Redrose64: Thanks! I will still be in France in September, but I'm sure I will be able to catch up later! − Pintoch (talk) 20:23, 19 August 2014 (UTC)

Open Access help[edit]

Hey Pintoch! Thanks for your recent tweaks to Wikipedia Library pages about open access. We're always looking for help coordinating in the critical but underserved area. If you're interested in getting more involved, let me know, and I'd love to talk to you about a volunteer OA Coordinator position we've been looking to develop. Cheers!

Hi Jake! That sounds interesting. Actually, I am still thinking about creating the OABOT, now that we have most of the tools to do it. I would be interesting in discussing what form it should have, concretely (but let's talk about that there, maybe). I'll write down some ideas soon. Best, Pintoch (talk) 22:57, 4 March 2016 (UTC)
Hey Pintoch! I see you've been making some coding progress :) I'd love to talk more about what you're working on and how we can get you more support or involvement. Would you be interested in a brief chat with audio? Please email me at I'm excited to see something happening here and want to help however I can. Best, Jake Ocaasi (WMF) (talk) 16:46, 1 April 2016 (UTC)
Sure, done! − Pintoch (talk) 23:48, 2 April 2016 (UTC)

From CS1 to BAG[edit]

I'm so glad we're making quick progress with the template design. After that, will it be time to go to Bot Approvals Group? Cheers, Jake Ocaasi (WMF) (talk) 04:47, 2 July 2016 (UTC)

Hi Ocaasi (WMF)! Yes, it's great that the CS1 people are on board, they are doing an amazing job. Before going to WP:BAG I think we would still need further changes in CS1 (basically adding the availability to add the icon to DOIs and plain URLs), but this should not take too long if we continue at the same pace. I'm also happy to say that we've been working on Dissemin's side to make things faster, so the bot should be able to run quicker. − Pintoch (talk) 07:26, 2 July 2016 (UTC)

Count me in when working on WP:OABOT! ChPietsch (talk) 12:05, 17 October 2016 (UTC)
Thanks a lot ChPietsch! For now we're mostly busing getting CS1 ready for the bot, but it seems that we will soon be able to submit the bot for approval. In the meantime if you see anything that can be improved, I have added you on the GitHub project. If you have a wmflabs account I can also add you to the project there. − Pintoch (talk) 13:40, 17 October 2016 (UTC)
