Hi, I hope Special:Permalink/849795002#Fullmetal Alchemist didn't come off as offensive; it certainly wasn't meant like that. Obviously such working paper versions of a paper are better than nothing - I was just expressing my hope that the user goes for the published version when citing to it in the article and thought I could incentivize that by sending it directly to them (so they don't have to bother you again) :). (As it turns out, the attempt to improve the quality of the citation was in vain ...) Best, — Pajz (talk) 19:51, 11 July 2018 (UTC)

@Pajz: Eh it's fine. At the time, I couldn't access a pagiated copy of JSTOR since my access to it was down. Plus, the following request I just filled had a paged copy available. :) --MrLinkinPark333 (talk) 19:53, 11 July 2018 (UTC)

Thank you

...for the barnstar. Unfortunately I don't personally have a copy of Scapolo's book – it's in the British Library, and I get to go there about once a year. So I'm afraid you will have to wait several months for me to check the Michael Jackson certifications, but it's on my list of things to do next time I visit. Richard3120 (talk) 20:01, 5 December 2018 (UTC)

@Richard3120: Okay no worries :) Would you want me to make a list of songs to check for? I'm working through Category:Cite certification used with missing parameters among others. --MrLinkinPark333 (talk) 20:04, 5 December 2018 (UTC)
Sure, no problem – I suspect most of them will be confirmed when I get to check the book, but no harm in having a list to double-check against. Post it on my talk page when you have your list ready. Richard3120 (talk) 20:21, 5 December 2018 (UTC)
