Temporal rangeEdit

Would love to hear your opinion on these two properties: Wikidata:Property_proposal/Term#Temporal_range_start, Wikidata:Property_proposal/Term#Temporal_range_end --Tobias1984 (talk) 12:27, 12 May 2013 (UTC)

IUCN taxon ID (P627)Edit

The property IUCN taxon ID (P627) that you supported is available now. --Tobias1984 (talk) 18:19, 12 June 2013 (UTC)

Thanks :) Eran (talk) 22:31, 12 June 2013 (UTC)
You're welcome. --Tobias1984 (talk) 22:34, 12 June 2013 (UTC)


I fixed all selflinks at Byrial list regarding taxonomoc properties. Exeptions as this are not reasonable. Please adapt your template to the rules of wikidata. --Succu (talk) 09:32, 7 August 2013 (UTC)

I don't think that selflinks are problem. It could be considered as a problem if it was used instead of claim because of deprecated technical reason (once there was no option for adding claims). However when there is a good rational for selflinks, as in the case of taxonomic ranks (using the same set of properties to declare both the above ranks and the specific rank) why not? Eran (talk) 18:18, 7 August 2013 (UTC)
There isn't. A combination of taxon name (P225) and taxon rank (P105) should solve your template problem. --Succu (talk) 19:49, 7 August 2013 (UTC)
  • taxon name (P225) isn't relevant here
  • I don't think there is a problem with redundancy of taxon rank (P105) and selflink. taxonomic level is a claim about the taxonomic level of this entry (e.g species/genus etc) while self linking the entity with genus says the same but in the context of a taxonomic tree defined by the properties P75 (P75),P76 (P76),P77 (P77)... It is much simple to use only this closed set of properties (p75,p76,p77...) and not combination of other properties. Eran (talk) 21:44, 7 August 2013 (UTC)

native label (P1705)Edit

native label (P1705) is ready. --Tobias1984 (talk) 15:53, 19 January 2015 (UTC)

Instance of racist for Donald TrumpEdit

that statement isn't my opinion or a personal interpretation. In the relative discussion on the talk page I've given a proof of the fact that "instance of racist" comes as a consequence of the definitions of the wiki. I'd like you to reply to that discussion before reverting the edit. --Ogoorcs (talk) 10:18, 8 February 2017 (UTC)

File:Skull and Crossbones.svg in WD:PFDEdit

Can you please not to insert this file with more than 10px setting? Because even such terrible icon is necessary, it can break mobile view of leading words (e.g. in P134 discussion, the "P" of Pintoch is cutted by this icon). --Liuxinyu970226 (talk) 06:18, 8 March 2018 (UTC)

Liuxinyu970226: Solved differently with table setting+slightly smaller icon (Special:Diff/645621066). Eran (talk) 06:25, 8 March 2018 (UTC)

What is in wbc_entity_usage?Edit

You are probably more experienced with wbc_entity_usage. If I run the query SELECT * FROM wbc_entity_usage WHERE eu_entity_id = "P2439"; on shwiki and fiwiki, no results are returned despite the existence of fi:Moduuli:Cs:Wikidata/lib and sh:Modul:Official website. Do you know why? And how were you able to find those modules? --Pasleim (talk) 13:02, 28 March 2018 (UTC)

Pasleim: running on all wikis with this query:
use enwiki_p; /*replace enwiki to any other wiki*/
    page_title, page_namespace
    from wbc_entity_usage
    inner join page on page_id=eu_page_id 
    where eu_aspect='C.P2439'  limit 1
Indicate the following pages are using this property - e.g there is at least one template that fetch it in those wikis.
Eran (talk) 22:23, 28 March 2018 (UTC)


Hey. Could you please check again with your tool if P2439 (P2439) is still in use in some Wikipedias? I think this edit removed the last use of P2439 (P2439). --Pasleim (talk) 14:12, 3 May 2018 (UTC)

Pasleim: I found only arwiki still using it (ar:ويكيبيديا:ويكي_بيانات/ملعب_ويكي_بيانات) but this may be cached from past and not really use. Eran (talk) 18:43, 4 May 2018 (UTC)
Thanks for your help. ar:ويكيبيديا:ويكي_بيانات/ملعب_ويكي_بيانات is calling ar:Module:Wd-pr which is simply iterating over all statements. So this case will automatically vanish when P2439 gets deleted. --Pasleim (talk) 21:17, 6 May 2018 (UTC)

WLM-IL monument in RomeEdit

Hi, in what sense does Pontifical Biblical Institute (Q951184) belong to Wiki Loves Monuments Israel?[1] Did you perhaps mean some other object? The WLM-IT system assumes that monuments located in Italy can only participate in WLM-IT, not WLM of other countries. This is a reasonable expectation, isn't it? --Nemo 05:13, 29 August 2018 (UTC)

Nemo: the hewiki page connected to this entity (e.g he:המכון_האפיפיורי_למקרא) is mainly focused on the Jerusalem branch of the institute (if you are interested, google translate may be quite good here). Eran (talk) 17:49, 29 August 2018 (UTC)
Alright! Let's make it clear that the physical locations are not just in Rome then. This suffices for us: [2]. Check if it's fine for your usage as well. Thanks, Nemo 18:11, 29 August 2018 (UTC)

Force an LTR/RTL break?Edit

Eran, I wonder if you can help me with an LTR/RTL transition problem I've encountered recently.

See w:yue:以利以謝賓猶達. There's a bit in the middle where we tried to list his name in the Hebrew alphabet followed by his date of birth, but the fact that the Hebrew-alphabet name was placed next to numerals and punctuation meant that the software ingested the year and the punctuation into the RTL section. Do you know how I can force a RTL-LTR transition between the Hebrew characters and the Chinese punctuation? Deryck Chan (talk) 17:32, 5 December 2018 (UTC)

Deryck Chan: This is quite common problem when mixing RTL and LTR :) Basically there are two solutions: using ‎/‏ marks to control the direction (added it in the article) and having span with unicode-bidi:isolate - the second option is more elegant in my opinion. If you want to consider the 2nd as generic solution, w:yue:Template:Lang-yi (and other RTL langs) can have span with isolate. Eran (talk) 22:12, 5 December 2018 (UTC)
Thanks! It turns out that yue.wp already has the span isolate functionality (through w:Module:Lang) but it wasn't deployed on Template:lang-yi. I've made this edit which fixed the problem. Thank you so much! Deryck Chan (talk) 11:29, 6 December 2018 (UTC)

Cycling raceEdit

Hi. I see you add a copy of Module:Cycling race on HE Wiki. Can you add translations on this kit ? His function is to permit a person speaking hebrew 1) understanting what is written in Wikidata items about cycling, 2) having good translations in Wikimedia Commons categories for the display of Wikidata Infobox. If you have the time, can you add translations to d:Module:Cycling race directly by editing the code ? It is not very complex. It is just a copy paste of previous lines with the replacement of words. Thanks, Jérémy-Günther-Heinz Jähnick (talk) 09:55, 7 December 2018 (UTC)

Jérémy-Günther-Heinz Jähnick: I added some translations. In hewiki use only part of the capabilities this module supports (e.g in teamroster and listofteams) hence it was only partially translated. The devious diesel, can you please double check my translations in Special:Diff/806836127 (I also missed some which I wasn't sure about). Thanks, Eran (talk) 14:12, 7 December 2018 (UTC)
Hi. If you want, it is possible to use in hebrew all the functions, in the idea if you have plans to develop the cycling on your Wikipedia. I am not the best help for this because the alphabet is different, but for example the algorithm perfectly works in russian. Can you give me articles where functions are already in use ? It is always a pleasure to see developments. Jérémy-Günther-Heinz Jähnick (talk) 09:27, 8 December 2018 (UTC)
Jérémy-Günther-Heinz Jähnick: Yes this is awesome module and in my opinion this is "best practice" how module should be used - where there is a "master" version in Wikidata that can be forked to any wiki, and wikis contribute it back so it will always be up to date :)
See examples in he:קבוצת_סקיי (teamroster) and he:טור_דה_פראנס_2018#קבוצות_משתתפות (listofteams). We don't use the infobox for cyclist because we use a different template (he:תבנית:רוכב_אופניים) and also don't use it for race infobox (he:תבנית:מרוץ אופניים). thanks, Eran (talk) 09:41, 8 December 2018 (UTC)

Translation requestEdit


Can you create the article en:Telephone numbers in Azerbaijan in Hebrew Wikipedia?

Yours sincerely, Sarvathi (talk) 20:03, 12 April 2019 (UTC)

הבוט שלךEdit

האם תוכל ללמד את הבוט שלא להוסיף את תוכן הסוגריים לתוויות העבריות שהוא מוסיף? לדוגמה Q28128723, Q15928143 שבהם הבחנתי עכשיו. שמזן (talk) 16:54, 30 May 2019 (UTC)
