Note: Editors can now either apply here, on Meta, or on the German Wikipedia. Please only apply in one place. Signups can also take place in any community that has a Wikipedia Library page: we very much want to host signups on other European languages, but need someone local to set them up. Remember that we have plenty of accounts and lots more if needed; we will not run out. If you have thoughts or want to help, please comment on the talk page.

  4. Hnaluru (talk · contribs · central auth · count · email) I have been an active user and contributor of Wikipedia for more than a decade and as I started inching towards more content development, I began to look at sources, De Gruyter offers to provide such a platform and I am keen to be a part of this library.

  5. YohanN7 (talk · contribs · central auth · count · email) I am an experienced editor focusing on mathematics and physics, with fair access to journals and textbooks. I used to have access to the De Gruyter's physics and mathematics related material (via Wikipedia), but my privileges seem to have expired (user id still there). I'd be very happy if they could be renewed. YohanN7 (talk) 08:22, 19 October 2016 (UTC) I will look into that. Sorry for the incoveniance.--Saehrimnir (talk) 08:22, 21 December 2016 (UTC) Oh, nothing has gone wrong, it is just that a year (more) has passed. YohanN7 (talk) 08:49, 21 December 2016 (UTC)
  6. Banjo (talk · contribs · central auth · count · email) 59k+ edits and Sysop at gl.wikipedia. Other than admin dutires, I focus my work both in translations/adaptations and improvement of GA/FA to galician wiki and improving already created content and article referencing in galician wiki. Lately focused on history related articles, but I usually work on a vast array of topics. Access to these resources would be really helpful in these tasks and in improving the general referencing of gl.wiki articles. Banjo (talk) 19:52, 20 October 2016 (UTC) Approved
  7. InformationvsInjustice (talk · contribs · central auth · count · email) Approved

Daniele.tampieri (talk · contribs · central auth · count · email) I have been already granted access to De Gruyter's physics and mathematics related material via Wikipedia Library in 2015, and got renewed by token in 2016.

The titles offered by De Gruyter such as this and this are on my top 10 "most wanted" list.--KoberTalk 20:03, 9 April 2017 (UTC)
  12. Froaringus (talk · contribs · central auth · count · email) As others, I was granted access in 2015 and was renewed in 2016.
