Tool Labs access request

@Fisherinformation: can you explain briefly how your university project will benefit the Wikimedia movement? We love to help people who are helping advance the wikis and the movement, but we like to have some general idea of how our computing resources are being used to do that. --BryanDavis (talk) 20:05, 20 April 2017 (UTC)

@BryanDavis: One of the papers I read thanked Wikimedia Deutschland e.V. for providing acces to its databases on the Wikimedia Toolserver. It said it owed it's database to this part of the site. I noticed this so-called Toolserver was later brought into this part of the site called Tool Labs. Hence my acces request. I'm now thinking maybe I should use the API instead and convert JSON to csv somehow. --Fisherinformation
@Fisherinformation: Depending on the data you are looking for, you may be able to get what you want using https://quarry.wmflabs.org/. Quarry provides access to the database replicas using your normal Wikimedia user account and makes it easy to download the results in a variety of formats. --BryanDavis (talk) 20:40, 20 April 2017 (UTC)
