Welcome to Wikidata, Aktron!

Wikidata is a free knowledge base that you can edit! It can be read and edited by humans and machines alike and you can go to any item page now and add to this ever-growing database!

Need some help getting started? Here are some pages you can familiarize yourself with:

  • Introduction – An introduction to the project.
  • Wikidata tours – Interactive tutorials to show you how Wikidata works.
  • Community portal – The portal for community members.
  • User options – including the 'Babel' extension, to set your language preferences.
  • Contents – The main help page for editing and using the site.
  • Project chat – Discussions about the project.
  • Tools – A collection of user-developed tools to allow for easier completion of some tasks.

Please remember to sign your messages on talk pages by typing four tildes (~~~~); this will automatically insert your username and the date.

If you have any questions, please ask me on my talk page. If you want to try out editing, you can use the sandbox to try. Once again, welcome, and I hope you quickly feel comfortable here, and become an active editor for Wikidata.

Best regards! — Arkanosis 16:51, 26 January 2013 (UTC)

Čtverečkovaný světEdit

Ahoj, je tohle, o čem jsi mi vyprávěl? Matěj Suchánek (talk) 11:12, 18 September 2016 (UTC)

Jo, to je přesně ono. Ta diskuze ohledně toho jak to má být překládáno a zaváděno je zajímavá. Ale ano. Můj zaměstnavatel má velkou plochu; ty si můžeš s W3W vybrat klidně i naše okno, ale jak vybrat unikátní adresu toho objektu? Správně by to měl být asi geografický střed, ale teď kdo to dokáže spočítat. --Aktron (talk) 18:23, 18 September 2016 (UTC)

Railway line maps as P18Edit

Hi Aktron,

please talk to the railway guys here before you mass import pictures. Now we have many cases, in which the same file is used for P15 and P18, which is tedious to fix. Cheers, --Sascha GPD (talk) 11:10, 28 March 2017 (UTC)

Sascha, yep, this was my fault. I mostly import villages/cities/tress or similar stuff. I did not expect the P18 to be used for maps on Wikipedia so frequently. Do you have a list of misuses, so I can do the reverts myself? Thanks! --Aktron (talk) 15:02, 28 March 2017 (UTC)

COAs of Polish villagesEdit

Hello,

I see you adding COAs as a property to Polish villages entries. But this is wrong. These COAs are mostly COAs of municipalities (which consist of several villages, up to hundred), not villages having same name as gmina. Moreover, sometimes village's COAS is different than gmina's COA. Example: Miasteczko Krajeńskie - village's COA, gmina's COA. So yours edits are wrong.

Regards Lajsikonik (talk) 04:52, 8 May 2017 (UTC)

Hi! Thanks for the notice! Not all of them are wrong, as it is the case with Czarny Dunajec vs. The Wikidata entry. I will check that. --Aktron (talk) 06:04, 8 May 2017 (UTC)

Slow downEdit

Hey, doing too many edits in short period of time is causing servers to have trouble. Please get a bot flag and use that instead or I have to block you due to violation of WD:Bot policy Amir (talk) 14:03, 23 June 2017 (UTC)

Please stop the tool NOW. Amir (talk) 14:04, 23 June 2017 (UTC)
All activities stopped right now. Sorry for that, but using teplate harvest earlier did not cause any problems to anyone. Moreover, the tool was encouraged by the WMCZ community for us to use. Nobody said anything for a bot account to be needed, although the nature of edits in this way is more than clear. --Aktron (talk) 14:07, 23 June 2017 (UTC)
No worries and thank you for helping out adding data to Wikidata. I definitely encourage adding these data too but without bot flag, the system gets into trouble. Please do so. Amir (talk) 14:10, 23 June 2017 (UTC)
By "trouble" do you mean unintelligible Recent changes or server load? I mean, I would like to know :-). Your point is well timed - there will be a wikidata workshop tomorrow in the WMCZ community so people might learn more about the Bot policy you've mentioned. As far as I know the guys nobody is using bot accounts. On the other hand, I might be wrong. --Aktron (talk) 14:19, 23 June 2017 (UTC)
The graphs don't show any problems before 14:00 UTC, except slightly higher amount of enqueued jobs. What kind of problem was that? HarvestTemplates has throttle of 5000 ms (5 s) for non-bots. Matěj Suchánek (talk) 17:46, 23 June 2017 (UTC)

Images vs MapsEdit

Hi! I've seen that you've imported some images from Wikipedias. Beware! Some of them are in fact maps. So they shouldn't be added as images of places, but as maps of places; different Ps. I'm correcting that on municipalities in the province of Ciudad Real. Thanks anyway for all your work! B25es (talk) 17:03, 24 June 2017 (UTC)

Hi B25es. You are absolutely right. On some wikipedias, users do not distinguish between the image and map image. I have found this at first when importing data from Turkish Wikipedia. I do random checks of my imports and when I see possible errors in the source data, I terminate the tools. However, it is not possible to be 100 % sure on this. Strangely, that today we had a Wikidata workshop here in WM CZ and I especially mentioned this very issue when talking about the Template Harvest tool. In case you have found some clearly defined range of edits that I made with errors, please give me a link so I can help to rever them! --Aktron (talk) 18:31, 24 June 2017 (UTC)

Hi, Aktron! I've found some more maps included as images in municipalities in Huesca province. Could you please double check? Frankly, don't trust es:wiki as distinguising images from maps. Thanks a lot. B25es (talk) 16:21, 16 September 2017 (UTC)

I'll try. Aktron (talk) 16:37, 16 September 2017 (UTC)

River lengthsEdit

Hi, Aktron. I wonder if you can stop importing river lengths because... units are not correct. This river is far longer than 104 meters. strakhov (talk) 13:06, 16 November 2017 (UTC)

I know, bad parameter was chosen during the copying process. I already informed a local admin here with a request to change the metres to kilometres, hopefully it will be done soon :-( Aktron (talk) 13:25, 16 November 2017 (UTC)
  Done Všechny délky s metry jsem jednoduše odstranil. Můžeš to importovat znovu, ale už prosím správně ;) Matěj Suchánek (talk) 10:28, 17 November 2017 (UTC)
Díky. Úlevou budiž, že předchozí importy z cs sr ru a de byly bez problémů :-) Aktron (talk) 11:20, 17 November 2017 (UTC)

RequestEdit

Hello.

Can you create the article en:National Library of Azerbaijan in Czech, like the article cs:Národní knihovna Kosova which you uploaded?

Thank you.

Sarvathi (talk) 19:13, 29 April 2018 (UTC)

Depends. I created the national library in Kosovo due to the fact that the building is of yugoslav brutalism architecture, which I consider as something that is my interest. As about Azerbaijan, I have very small knowledge of the country only :-( Aktron (talk) 19:25, 29 April 2018 (UTC)
Thank you very much for your reply and apologies for my extremely late reply. I understand your reasoning. I withdraw that request. If you are interested, can you create en:Baku TV Tower in Czech Wikipedia? It doesn't require any knowledge about the country.
Yours sincerely, Sarvathi (talk) 11:24, 14 April 2019 (UTC)

Place of birthEdit

Hi! Editions such this are just wrong - firstly "place of birth" should be a city or hospital, not a country and secondly these editions are based on bad info from pl.wiki (author adds a country of birth without any reference as he just add a country which such athlete represent as a country of birth which is just terrible choose (it isn't accurate for hundreds of sportspeople who were born in one country and represent different one) and cannot be used without additional source saying where these athletes were born). 99kerob (talk) 18:57, 14 January 2019 (UTC)

Understood. Such edits will not be harvested in the future. Aktron (talk) 22:21, 14 January 2019 (UTC)
