Wikipedia:WikiProject Magazines/Magazines cited by Wikipedia[edit]

JL-Bot Task 7 generates statistics for WP:JCW. I have been asked to extend this to WP:MCW. The task will continue to operate in the same manner (parse a database dump file, extract citation templates, calculate statistics, and save statistics to the project pages). The only difference will be it now looks for magazine citations as well as journal ones and will save the magazine stats to the WP:MCW pages. I'm assuming this is a non-controversial change. However, double checking if anyone feels a new BRFA is needed. Thanks. -- JLaTondre (talk) 19:23, 17 September 2017 (UTC)

I'd speedy this personally, but I'm involved so I'll let someone else make a call if there's a separate approval needed for it. Headbomb {t · c · p · b} 16:34, 18 September 2017 (UTC)
@JLaTondre: Can you give a diff showing what the bot does for the existing project? ~ Rob13Talk 23:18, 19 September 2017 (UTC)
Diff from last run. -- JLaTondre (talk) 23:57, 19 September 2017 (UTC)
@JLaTondre: Can you submit a new BRFA for the magazines to document the approval? I'll speedy approve it; no sense in trialing if the code is the same and all you're doing is expanding what it looks at. ~ Rob13Talk 00:08, 20 September 2017 (UTC)
Done. Thanks. -- JLaTondre (talk) 00:29, 20 September 2017 (UTC)
