Huggle warning messagesEdit

Hope you dont mind, I imported nr1-4 of the warnings from enwiki. Just 1 smaller problem, the absense of a Help page here which explains the term revert, why thats a red link. Othervise, it seems to work pretty well, for nr 1 also made a conditional welcome mess, in case noone exist, when executing warning 1. Dan Koehl (talk) 02:27, 23 January 2018 (UTC)


Hi, I’m interested to know more about meta:Commitment scheme but the link is broken. author  TomT0m / talk page 10:35, 26 January 2018 (UTC)

Where did you find that link? ·addshore· talk to me! 12:31, 29 January 2018 (UTC)

It looks like the link should actually be to enwiki, en:wp:Commitment_scheme ·addshore· talk to me! 08:00, 5 May 2018 (UTC)

Huggle welcome messageEdit

Hope you dont mind, I imported Wikipedia:Huggle/Message from enwiki for the Wikidata:Huggle/Message.

I have been using Huggle pretty intensively lately, seems to work just fine except for that it doesnt reach above waning messages level two, please see User_talk:, and the user talk page history. Dan Koehl (talk) 03:03, 12 September 2018 (UTC)

Interesting, Ping @Petrb: ·addshore· talk to me! 06:06, 12 September 2018 (UTC)


You gave a reference to the journalist Tom Bower (Q7815020) and this was wrong. Now you give the same reference for the actor Tom Bower (Q354031). Why giving references? -- MovieFex (talk) 10:29, 28 October 2018 (UTC)

Hi there. This edit happened while trialing an automated script for adding references. The script only looked at the text name / label of the statement, and didn't look at any further item statements. I haven't worked on the script in a year or so now so it isn't being used, but I'll leave a note next to it saying that it should also check more details of the items. ·addshore· talk to me! 10:38, 31 October 2018 (UTC)

P:P5008 vs P:P6104Edit

on focus list of Wikimedia project (P5008) takes values which are topic lists or catalogues, while maintained by WikiProject (P6104) takes values which are WikiProjects. We seem to be fine with the logical difference between the two. Deryck Chan (talk) 10:58, 9 November 2018 (UTC)

Film castEdit

Hi Addshore,

When working on a filmography, I noticed that recent films hardly had any actors listed beyond Nicolas Cage. Recalling some clever imports you did some time ago, I was wondering if you could re-run the scripts. --- Jura 10:06, 16 December 2018 (UTC)

Hmm, I have never had anything that imports statements themselves, only something that adds references to statements that already exist! Those efforts were documented at ·addshore· talk to me! 10:45, 17 December 2018 (UTC)
Oh .. I do find them useful. Sometimes it allows to spot a name that shouldn't be in there or could use more refs. --- Jura 10:43, 18 December 2018 (UTC)
I should really have a god at breathing some life into that script again. I could set it up in a similar way to fatameh tool and just provide an API that users can send an entity ID to, then the script would just add the references that it can. ·addshore· talk to me! 11:58, 18 December 2018 (UTC)
It might be relatively high maintenance if it should work for any user and multiple websites. A field where this might need improvement are voice actors for animated films. I think @Valentina.Anitnelav: moves them frequently. The other day I learned to use the api to move people from cast member (P161) to "talk show guest" in one call, maybe the same could be done for these. --- Jura 06:28, 20 December 2018 (UTC)

Admin inactivityEdit

Hello! Unfortunately, you have not made the required 5 admin/property creator actions in the last six months, and per WD:A your admin rights were removed. Thanks for your service in the past. --Rschen7754 01:08, 4 July 2019 (UTC)

Yup, I'm travelling for 6 months. Bound to happen. I'll be back! ·addshore· talk to me! 01:39, 4 July 2019 (UTC)
