Wikipedia Citation Bot

Content

Wikimedia Foundation servers run a tool to help with citation on Wikipedia. This tool retrieves web pages, extracts metadata, and outputs a citation we can use on Wikipedia. Unfortunately, your website appears to provide this tool with an error page, making it difficult to cite your work. This may because the tool has requested a large number of pages from your site.

I am hoping that you can whitelist Wikimedia IP range 208.80.152.0 - 208.80.155.255 so that your work is easier to cite. This will lead to more of your articles being cited, and therefore read, by Wikipedia's 115 million readers each day.

You can see this tool and test its output at this URL: https://tools.wmflabs.org/citer/

Thank you,
