SE description on Långe Jan (Q712299) edit

Hi AliciaFagervingWMSE, I don't read Swedish, but it seems that [1] isn't the ideal description for this item. You might want to check existing P31 before adding descriptions. --
--- Jura 15:45, 12 March 2017 (UTC)Reply

@Jura1:. Looks like Långe Jan (Q712299) is many things all at once. The way that the import is built up it would never overwrite an existing description but in this case where none existed it added the only one which it was aware of. /André Costa (WMSE) (talk) 10:27, 6 September 2017 (UTC)Reply

Add disambiguation edit

@Alicia Fagerving (WMSE):Hi, you have added the disambiguation Q10658318 in 127 item. Can you fix the problem? Replace with the correct item (Q10658319 or Q10658320), or if isn't possible delete it. ps. You use a user name with WMSE in the name but I don't think that your edit are connected to the you job in Wikimedia Sverige, maybe is better change the name --ValterVB (talk) 17:57, 17 April 2017 (UTC)Reply

As all of the remaining ones have been replaced by cist (Q1399576). The already removed ones cannot be fixed without re-runnign the bot. As an aside we are adding a mechanism to the bot to ensure disambiguation items are not added in the future. /André Costa (WMSE) (talk) 10:50, 6 September 2017 (UTC)Reply

Mixing building and people edit

Your bot mixed some peoples as buildings and added to them heritage statuses. (ex:Axel Hamberg (Q4830282)) --Fralambert (talk) 18:31, 23 June 2017 (UTC)Reply

Hi. This was due to erroneous mappings done on the source Wikipedia. We are adding mechanisms to the bot to blacklist the most obvious cases (such as people). Due to the nature of the imports it's sadly not possible to construct whitelists of allowed P31 values. /André Costa (WMSE) (talk) 11:05, 6 September 2017 (UTC)Reply

Ranks edit

Hi, I saw only today your imports of area (P2046) for national parks. It's nice to have these well-sourced data, but that way the bot did it, it's not really obvious for the client software which value refers to the area of whole park. Here for instance, a Wikipedia template or a sparql query would by default return four different areas for the park. We can prevent that by adding rank: 'preferred' to the area of the whole park as of today. There might be cases where the area has changed over time. In that case, historical values for the whole park should not have rank: 'preferred'. So maybe also add applies to part (P518)totality (Q2445511) or whatever item can be used to make it clear the value refers to the whole park ? Would your bot be able to fix it ? --Zolo (talk) 12:58, 2 September 2017 (UTC)Reply

@Zolo: I would assume that standard behaviour for consumption )in e.g. Wikiepedia templates) would be to select the item without a applies to part (P518) as default. This is similar to how many properties gets resolved using start/end dates rather than relying on rank. The problem in our case with adding rank: 'preferred' is that there may already be an area (P2046) statement on the item and we cannot say that the imported value should be preferred to that./André Costa (WMSE) (talk) 11:03, 6 September 2017 (UTC)Reply
@André Costa (WMSE): I think it would be nice that a even simple template can return the correct and most relevant value when looking for an area without bothering about a long, and potentially evolving, list of qualifiers (start time (P580), end time (P582), point in time (P585), start period (P3415), end period (P3416), exception to constraint (P2303), including (P1012), applies to part (P518)...). And in practice, many templates seem to rely on ranks rather than date. Same for sparql queries (potentially done by outsider not very knowledgeable about Wikidata usage).
I don't think there are many values in the items that should get precedence over those added by the bot. We can probably sparql-query items that have more than one area for the present date without P518 and check them all by hand.--Zolo (talk) 16:01, 6 September 2017 (UTC)Reply
@Zolo: True. Currently the bot framework that we are using doesn't deal with ranks at all (since I've never had to set them). Adding such functionality would be of interest for future imports of similar data. For these areas I believe a one-off script run is probably the solution. Due to deadlines in other projects I cannot commit to a date by which we will have had time to do it though. /André Costa (WMSE) (talk) 13:53, 8 September 2017 (UTC)Reply

Preferred rank edit

I see that you import birth/death dates e.g. 1935. In Wikidata this record has an unsourced value of 6 maj 1935. As we have templates that imports dates from Wikidata to Wikipedia I think its good if we had a best practices

  1. ) A date with lower precision gets a lower rank
  2. ) A date without a source get a lower rank

Or should that logic be in a template like sv:Mall:Faktamall_biografi_WD? Is there any best practise? Any comments/thoughts from the Template designers: @Larske:@Innocent_bystander: - Salgo60 (talk) 18:03, 20 October 2017 (UTC)Reply

There are functions in Module:Wikidata2 that allow you to prefer sourced claims, and there are functions who take the first claim no matter of how well sourced it is. What you get depend on how you spell the question to the module. The main question here is probably how we should do when there are statements that contradicts the constraints. human (Q5)'s are only born once... -- Innocent bystander (talk) 06:47, 21 October 2017 (UTC)Reply
I added sources with Swedish Film Database (Q1139587) as stated in (P248) and yesterdays date as retrieved (P813) to the more precise instances of date of birth (P569) and date of death (P570) in the example Albion Örtengren (Q6257418). But I wonder if there is a need to also add reference URL (P854) in this case when there is a Swedish Film Database person ID (P2168) (that I also added) from which the ref-url is implicitly given. For the sources with less precision, reference URL (P854) has been entered although it is implicitly given via the Musikverket person ID (P4357) for the object. I guess it is much easier to handle possible site reorganization (i.e. URL changes) within Svensk Filmdatabas if we keep the URL-details, except the ID part, in the formatter URL (P1630) where it belongs instead of spreading it "all over the place". Is this in line with some policy?
@Innocent_bystander: Is it within the present scope of the Wikidata(2) module to dig out these URL's, from the Swedish Film Database person ID (P2168) (or other identifiers) via its formatter URL (P1630)? It does not seem to be implemented for birth and death dates in the "Faktamall biografi WD" template. --Larske (talk) 08:13, 21 October 2017 (UTC)Reply
@Larske: From what I know, this is implemented in Module:Cite, and that module does not work differently depending on the calls in the template. -- Innocent bystander (talk) 08:44, 21 October 2017 (UTC)Reply
@Innocent_bystander: We are maybe talking about different things. When I insert the "Faktamall biografi WD" template in the Albion Örtengren article in svwp, I get the reference notes for Birth and Death dates in the infobox, but the links just lead to the svwp article on Svensk Filmdatabas, not to this external URL where I can read about the birth and death dates for Albion Örtengren although all information needed for that is stored within the Wikidata object. --Larske (talk) 12:14, 21 October 2017 (UTC)Reply
@Larske: All information stored is: "P248:Q1139587"+"retrieved date:somedate". Module:Cite can thereafter collect information from Q1139587, but that item lacks essential data to give you more than the name of the database. Since the item was linked to an article on svwiki, it could also provide a link to an article about the database. -- Innocent bystander (talk) 13:09, 21 October 2017 (UTC)Reply
I don't see that there is any "lack of essential data" to get the full external URL from what is stored in Wikidata. Swedish Film Database (Q1139587) doesn't just have a label (name) and a site link to svwp, it also has the Swedish Film Database person ID (P2168) among its Wikidata property (P1687). The object Albion Örtengren (Q6257418) also has a Swedish Film Database person ID (P2168) with the value 58540. Put that value into the formatter URL (P1630) of Swedish Film Database person ID (P2168), replacing the $1, and you have the wanted result. --Larske (talk) 14:18, 21 October 2017 (UTC)Reply
But are there guarantees that this information is gathered from exactly that id? Could it not have been collected from the id about his wife, or any of the plays he has performed in? What should we do if there is more than one external id in the page about the person or if the external ids has been changed in the history of the item. I'm sorry, this sounds far to fragile to be reliable. -- Innocent bystander (talk) 14:54, 21 October 2017 (UTC)Reply
Maybe no guarantees, but it would anyway be good if the ref-url qualifier could be stated indirectly in some way so that only the values "P2168" (or other property if relevant) and the "58540" (or "the wifes ID" if that is "the relevant ID") is stored in the object for a person and the real reference URL is formed by combining the formatter URL (P1630), the one that is valid for the moment, of Swedish Film Database person ID (P2168) with "the relevant ID". Otherwise much of the value of having the formatter URL (P1630) property at all is lost if you ask me. --Larske (talk) 15:16, 21 October 2017 (UTC)Reply
I would love to see external-id-properties to be used in sources. From the WPs point of view, it would be the most valuable way to use them. (From a database-perspective they have other values.) If I remember correctly, Module:Wikidata2/Modul:Cite is already prepared for the use of them in sources. A drawback is that they are maybe not always nicely formatted. -- Innocent bystander (talk) 15:31, 21 October 2017 (UTC)Reply
@Larske: If Statistical database, Land area by localities, population and population density per sq. km. Every fifth year 1960 - 2015 (Q27579148) would be connected to Swedish urban area code (P775) in this way (we have such properties outside of Sweden), we would probably lose the connection with the data when the 2018-report is published. Not for all items, but for those who have been dissolved. The alternative would be that we get a new P775-property every three years. -- Innocent bystander (talk) 06:16, 22 October 2017 (UTC)Reply

Jag minns inte nu exakt vilken property jag tänker på. Jag har varit insnöad på Småorter alldeles för länge. Men jag minns att vi har liknande propertys för USA. Det går att koppla ihop dessa property-ids med US census bureau och få en länk till senaste folkräkningen. Problemet är att städer, citys, towns, Census districts, mfl ändras från en folkräkning till nästa. Det är en liten andel, men ändringar sker ändock. Nyligen har hela USA bytt system med koder. Det vi har på svwiki är efter vad jag förstått föråldrat. En id blir ibland ibland gammal och byts ut. Tusentals ids om proteiner har tagits bort eller ändrats efter att det visat sig vara dubbletter. Skulle vi byggt länkar på det viset i berörda protein-artiklar, skulle länken bli fel. I Sverige har SCB fått hjärnsläpp och gett Sollentuna den tätortskod som Upplands Väsby hade tidigare. Samma sak kan hända med vilken id som helst, och händer hela tiden. Att bygga en kedja från P248->Qxxx->Pyyy->idzzz->P1630->httq:// blir en väldigt skör konstruktion. Det finns så många ställen i denna kedja som inte är stabil över tiden att jag inte tror på idéen. Om Wikidata hade varit en privat konstruktion, så helt ok. Men här kan vemsomhelst gå in i de här objekten och göra ändringar som de inte har en aning om hur det påverkar oss på Wikipedia. Det inte bara kan ske, det sker också. Det flesta problemen beror inte på illvilja, utan på okunskap och brister i kommunikationen, och det inte bara från newbies... -- Innocent bystander (talk) 07:39, 22 October 2017 (UTC)Reply

Jag jobbar främst nu med småortsrapporten för 2010, för att få in Småortskoden på rätt ställe överallt. Jag har kanske gjort det i 2/3 av alla fält i SCB-rapporten. Det är lätt att göra fel, så jag vill inte hålla på länge åt gången med det, för att inte bli för trött och tappa koncentrationen. Därför hoppar jag också mellan landsdelarna. Du anar inte hur tröttsamt det kan vara att ta den ena posten om en lite by I Falu kommun efter den andra. Då blir det mer fart och fläkt om man får åka runt lite.
Då lägger jag in alla data jag hittar hos SCB, istället för att vänta på en robot som kanske aldrig kommer.
User:Pajn har redan gjort en körning med alla folkmängd- och area-data från 1995-2010. Men hn lade inte in data I de objekt som inte hade P776 (det har tillkommit många sedan dess) och inte i de objekt som krånglade till inläggningen för hn. Fanns det redan folkmängd eller area angiven, så hoppade hn dessa objekt.
Några saker som krånglar till det, är att gammal data kan ha "preffered rank". Då behöver man åtminstone ändra denna till "normal rank" för att datan ska visa sig på WP.
Orter som ligger I mer än en kommun, kan vara röriga, det måste vi lösa för hand.
Artiklar som handlar om mer än en SCB-ort blir lätt stökiga. Ta Utansjö (Q28049555) som exempel. "Import" från WP funkar inte i fall som dessa. Det funkar dåligt att ha data för mer än en SCB-post I samma objekt. Min manuella genomgång är också för att identifiera sådana artiklar.
Vill du fortsätta Pajn's arbete, så får du gärna göra det! Det finns många orter som ännu inte fått P776, isht I 2015-rapporten. Men vi kan inte vänta på det!
En sak som inte vore fel om vi kunde lösa, är inlägg av determination method (P459) som qualifier till alla folkmängdsdata vi har. Problemet har varit att ingen vetat vad man ska lägga in här. Men jag är nu böjd att tro att det bästa vore att lägga in "tätort i Sverige" respektive "småort" I denna qualifier. Bara lägga in "folkbokföring" är inte tillräckligt för att beskriva hur SCB-orter avgränsas. Att metoden ändrats varje gång sedan 1890, är nog inget vi kan hålla på och strula med. Man skulle kunna använda sig av "källan" för att avgöra vilken qualifier som ska användas var. Enda undantaget är tätortsrapporter 1960, som också beskriver föregångaren till våra dagars småorter. Men där kan man se vilket värdet är (<200), och göra undantag för dessa. -- Innocent bystander (talk) 14:01, 13 January 2017 (UTC)Reply
Jag får ta mig en titt på allt detta, nu har jag gjort en snabb sökning: objekt med småortskod utan befolkningsmängd (230ish) eller utan area (280ish). --Alicia Fagerving (WMSE) (talk) 14:19, 13 January 2017 (UTC)Reply
@Innocent bystander: Dessa kan man alltså köra med bot, om småortskoden är korrekt. Hade jag varit du så skulle jag nu satsa på att lägga till P776 där det saknas, och kanske strunta i siffrorna. Har inte sett på scb's rapporter än, med xls borde inte vara så svårt att extrahera data från. --Alicia Fagerving (WMSE) (talk) 14:30, 13 January 2017 (UTC)Reply
Mja, bara lägga in där det inte finns något P1082 ger inte så mycket. Det finns de som var tätorter 1960 och har folkmängd från då, men inget från tiden när de var småort från 1990 och framåt.
Jag vill inte bara lägga in P776, jag vill även lägga in P31 och P131 med hyfsade källor. Lägga in startdatum och slutdatum för P31:småort/tätort ser jag som viktigt, något som inte heller är lätt med robot, särskilt som vissa SCB-rapporter inte är digitaliserade. -- Innocent bystander (talk) 15:24, 13 January 2017 (UTC)Reply

RAÄ edit

Ser du experimenterar med RAÄ-nummer. Det finns en disk på Property talk:P1262 du bör vara medveten om. Frågan där är om det ska användas som qualifier till Swedish Open Cultural Heritage URI (P1260). Det är möjligt, att det inte är en optimal lösning, så det kan tas upp för diskussion igen! Ett problem med att inte ha denna som qualifier, är att det kan finnas flera P1262-claims och flera P1260-claims, utan att semantiskt visa vilken som hör till vilken. -- Innocent bystander (talk) 10:49, 20 January 2017 (UTC)Reply

Import of monuments from Poland edit

Cześć, I'm interested in status of migrating database of Polish monuments to Wikidata. Is there something I can help? Thanks to @André Costa (WMSE) (kudos!) I've found Wikidata:WikiProject WLM/Mapping tables/pl (pl) and it mostly looks good, it's possible to extract some dates from `nazwa` in easy scenarios. I would love to see test run and/or source code for bot. Cheers, Yarl (talk) 11:07, 17 February 2017 (UTC)Reply

Hello @Yarl:!
It's great that you'd like to help us -- it's been my impression that the Polish dataset is one of the largest and most detailed in the database, so it's definitely worth working on.
As for the source code, it's available here. The Polish part is only an outline right now, but I've had a look at the data in order to identify possible difficulties.
Here are questions that come to my mind right away:
Thank you for bringing my attention to the nazwa field -- it does look like many of the items contain dates of some sort. I assume that an item like klasztor ss. Służebniczek Niepokalanego Poczęcia NMP, 1890 would be an easy case, where 1890 can be used as inception (P571). If we look at this list as an example, there are some items with multiple dates:
* Szkoła Realna, ob. liceum salezjanów, 1913-1916 -- does this represent the beginning and the end of the building works? My interpretation is that 1916 can be used as the year in which the building was completed.
* dwór, 1920-1930, 1984 -- what do the multiple dates mean in this context?
Does the id/registrant_url (such as 600985) mean anything?
As for numer, it's my understanding that in order to save it as a Polish cultural heritage register number (P3424), it should be converted like 329/A z 28.12.1993 (WUOZ - A/483) -> 329/A. The date can then be used as a point in time (P585) qualifier (it's the date when the object was entered into the heritage register, right?). But some objects have multiple entries in this field, for example A/1027 z 15.09.1971 i z 16.02.1994 or A/151/67 z 27.03.1935, A/139/425 z 28.10.1958. I think I've also seen examples using a semicolon. Do you have any idea how these should be interpreted? I imagine the earliest date would be the most important one...
Finally, is there some official government website or publication that contains the entirety of the register?
Thank you for your help, it's really apprieciated -- oh, and keep in mind that this is by no means urgent. Miłego dnia :) --Alicia Fagerving (WMSE) (talk) 11:54, 17 February 2017 (UTC)Reply
And some thoughts about the administrative division fields, especially gmina since that's the lowest level division. In the vast majority of cases, the value looks like gmina Pawłów, i.e. with the actual word gmina in it, which is easy to map to Gmina Pawłów (Q554621) by going through the corresponding plwiki article. But there's also a number of items with single-word values, like Sieradz. Polish Wikipedia has an article on Sieradz, which is a city, and one on Gmina Sieradz, which is the administrative unit the city belongs to. It seems most logical to use the latter as located in the administrative territorial entity (P131), as, if I understand w:Administrative divisions of Poland correctly, a gmina is the lowest unit of the administrative division. I have found several examples like this where the content of the gmina field does not contain the actual word gmina. Is there a particular reason for this, and do you have any idea how this could be interpreted? --Alicia Fagerving (WMSE) (talk) 12:59, 17 February 2017 (UTC)Reply

I will add remarks here, we can also move further discussion there for easier documentation.

Regarding last one: you don't need to care about gminas, and generally administrative divisions, at all, because we won't add them. All we care is miejscowosc which will end in located in the administrative territorial entity (P131). I'm pretty sure this is the correct way (that's how I cleaned up all current monuments entries in Wikidata), take a look at data imported in England. Yarl (talk) 17:09, 18 February 2017 (UTC)Reply

Hi Alicia, two quick questions:

  1. I'm wondering how do you plan to upload monuments? By number in database or gmina by gmina?
  2. Do you believe it will be possible to start test upload by early March?

bot hint edit

Hi Alica, regarding this edit of your bot: [3], you are using nachgewiesen in: Monuments database as a source for your statement, but this is just generated from wikipedia sources and not a reliable source for anything. Please use the orginal external sources in this case. BTW: the statement is wrong, it is not a Burg / Castle, but an alpine hut. regards --Herzi Pinki (talk) 07:39, 25 August 2017 (UTC)Reply

Hi @Herzi Pinki:. The source statement should be considered akin to imported from Wikimedia project (P143)English Wikipedia (Q328). I.e. help for someone who wants to know where the information comes from but not a source per se. Note that WD:BOT rules require statements be sourced and recommends this way for data that doesn't come straight from a source.
The burg matching seems to be related to a bug in the code. We'll look into how common this was. /André Costa (WMSE) (talk) 11:20, 6 September 2017 (UTC)Reply

Koordinater på svenska kyrkobyggnader edit

@André Costa (WMSE): Har du/ni någon möjlighet att se över koordinaterna på svenska kyrkobyggnader? I Grängesberg Church (Q10509726) hittade jag nu koordinater importerade i Wikidatas ungdom med "svenskspråkiga Wikipedia" som källa, trots att det aldrig ser ut att ha varit några koordinater i berörd artikel. Koordinaterna pekade i riktning mot Leksands kommun, isf Ludvika kommun. Koordinater fanns ju dock I "lista över skyddade kyrkobyggnader" så jag lade in dessa. Koordinaterna lades in av en användare som hellre lade in mycket data än bra, så jag blir inte jätteförvånad över om det finns många fler missar av denna typ. -- Innocent bystander (talk) 19:08, 11 September 2017 (UTC)Reply

@Innocent bystander: Om jag minns rätt så lades det inte till koordinaten om itemet redan hade den, oavsett källa, för att undvika att ha items med två koordinater. Därför finns det ca. 2000 items där koordinaten är källbelagd med svenskspråkiga Wikipedia och inte har uppdaterats. --Alicia Fagerving (WMSE) (talk) 07:11, 12 September 2017 (UTC)Reply
Exakt, vore det möjligt att byta ut dessa ofta undermåliga koordinater? Vi har redan gjort detta med de småorter som kunde få nya koordinater med "anges i Småorter 2005 (Q25976776)" som källa och det stötte inte på några problem här. -- Innocent bystander (talk) 07:18, 12 September 2017 (UTC)Reply

Daguerreotyp painting edit

Hi Alicia, hope you're doing well. It's a bit strange that Jacquette Piper (1799-1882), Countess, wife of Count Hugo Didrik Hamilton (Q43221454) is classified as a painting by the museum. Maybe you can look into this? Multichill (talk) 11:37, 14 January 2018 (UTC)Reply

Taking a look in their data it does in fact look like they set "Kategori:Måleri, Målningar" (Category:painting) and "Sakord: Målning" (keyword:painting).

Wrong edits edit

Hello! Your bot, AliciaFagervingWMSE-bot did completely wrong edits. First of all, it added unnecessary and wrong items to located in the administrative territorial entity (P131), for example here. We need only one item, not two or more. In this case, the city/village is what we need, not the county. Second, it added many false counties (e.g. Q12723639 is in Q190711, not in Q184797). In my opinion, all of these edits should undo. Bencemac (talk) 19:15, 2 March 2018 (UTC)Reply

The imports all take their data from the Monuments Database (explained at c:Commons:Monuments Database), using the mapping specified at Wikidata:WikiProject_WLM/Mapping_tables/ro_(ro) (for Romania). It is in turn just taking it's data directly from the Wiki Loves Monuments tables on Wikipedia. For Romania the technical settings are defined at [4] but in short it comes from these pages. To fix something which is wrong in the Monuments Database you therefore have to fix the underlying error on Wikipedia. Starting from a Wikidata entry with an imported error you can look at the reference to get the url to the entry in the monuments database. That entry states the Wikipedia page under "source" and and "id" allows you to identify which entry on that page it is.
So anything which is completely wrong and was imported is therefore caused by an error on (e.g. w:ro:Lista monumentelor istorice din județul Mureș - Z for Q12723639). When importing we tried to do some sanity checks (e.g. not importing multiple located in the administrative territorial entity (P131)). That said if Wikipedia says one thing and Wikidata another then there is no way to automatically determine which is correct (or the more appropriate), hence the Wikipedia value is also imported.
I have full understanding that these things can be frustrating. It is worth noting however that out of more than 30,000 items imported on Romanian heritage less than 3,500 had items on Wikidata before and my guess is that only a fraction of these experienced the problems you mentioned above. It also looks like it doesn't affect most of the Properties which were imported for each affected item. /André Costa (WMSE) (talk) 15:04, 4 April 2018 (UTC)Reply

Items with multiple codes for Romania edit

Hi Alicia and André. I've noticed that the heritage bot added several codes to some items listed here. I suspect the grouping was done by article. While not strictly incorrect, I think it would be better to have one item per code, since in some cases the different codes can be hundred of km away. If this is too complicated for you, I can fix the issues myself, but I want to make sure that the bot will not "correct" me afterwards. Please advise on the path forward.--Strainu (talk) 07:14, 23 June 2018 (UTC)Reply

Hi @Strainu:, thanks for letting us know. All of the heritage importa should have a safety mechanism built in preventing them from adding any claims if the item already contains a different id. That rule should have taken precedence over any links on the source wiki. Obviously that mechanism has failed here :( The claims should be removed and added to new items and the Wikipedia links updated (I guess that can only be done manually). I'll also take a look at what went wrong in the underlying logic /André Costa (WMSE) (talk) 07:15, 25 June 2018 (UTC)Reply
I have a similar issue with heritage sites in Romania: The ro.wp infobox uses Wikidata to retrieve the county and municipality where the site is located. This requires that, for every heritage site, located in the administrative territorial entity (P131) point to the municipality in which the site is located, not the county (as it was initially during import). For now, I'll just make some of these changes manually. I just hope no bots will come to "correct" me afterwards. -- —Andreitalk 08:53, 29 October 2018 (UTC)Reply

Holmöarna edit

I restored an older version of Holmöarna (Q3545909) to remove all the statements and descriptions your bot added about it being a nature reserve.

Agusastugan edit

Good morning! I have been working with Cultural monuments lately and can find some editions made by members of WMSE like Agusastugan (Q30316427) as instance of (P31) architectural ensemble (Q1497375) by AliciaFagervingWMSE-bot in 2017 having raa/bbr/21300000014319 described as individual listed building complex (Q24284072) and Agusastugan (Q20871954) as building (Q41176) created by User:Väsk having in 2015 having raa/bbr/21300000014319 described as enskilt byggnadsminne (Q20871913)

I am not quite able to differ between these two Properties. Can you help me with the difference since they are bearing the same raa identificator and that to my understanding Agusastugan probably is one specific stuga located in Agusa (Q10403678) and is described in the Sv:article as Agusastugan är en vinkelbyggd korsvirkesgård från de första decennierna av 1800-talet med möbler, husgeråd, kläder, och verktyg från slutet 1800-taletI can also see that the house is used as hemstadsmuseum, but suppose that none of the above items is covering that as long as no instance of (P31) with musemum or a subclass there of are mentioned.

About "human biblical figure" edit

I am surprised by these edits by User:AliciaFagervingWMSE-bot, where "instance of = human" is added, whereas "instance of = human biblical figure" was already existing.
LIBRIS says "biblisk patriark", so perhaps it could be better to add the LIBRIS reference to the already existing "human biblical figure" value, instead of adding the "human" value?

User Research - Looking for volunteers edit

Hey Alicia,

We talked very briefly at WikidataCon 2019 in Berlin. In fact, we are now starting a research project and I would appreciate your input, especially on Wikidata:

For a current research project we are looking for active community members in Wikipedia, Wikidata and Wikimedia Commons who are interested in filling out a survey and participating in an interview. The aim of the research is to identify opportunities for participation and access for new volunteers in the Wikimedia projects. For this purpose we would like to learn from the experiences of the already active community members and find out success factors for participation in the projects. Participation includes filling out a preliminary survey, a self-study and an interview.

If you are interested in participating, simply fill out this survey. The participants in the interviews will be selected on the basis of the answers in order to be able to consider as many different perspectives as possible.

All selected interview partners will receive a book or photo voucher of 25 euros as a thank you.

Feel free to forward this call to other people you think might share interesting experiences about Commons. If you have any questions you can of course contact me or check the project page :) On the Project Page you can also find more information.

Unfortunately it seems that this is standard practice of your bot, see a recent example here

Please report back whether you are gonna fix this and when. Ideally I would like all languages that has labels on these item also to have some minimum of description. Adding items with no descriptions unfortunately makes searching using the CirrusSearch very bad for users, that is the reason why I'm vigilant about bots adding descriptions also without exceptions.

Good point. I have/had no intention of harassing anyone and I can see now that the way I wrote it was not as respectful as I would like.

@So9q: Bra fråga! Om man googlar på olika fraser ur SOU-erna hittar man sidor som denna på -- de är alltså OCR:ade men ej korrekturlästa (i nära anslut- ning osv..). Så de finns där, men jag hittar ingen startsida för hela samlingen :(. Kanske @Ainali: vet något mer (också kring om de är offentliga handlingar...). Att kunna använda dem som källa till lexem tycker jag (med volontärhatten på ) vore jättebra! --Alicia Fagerving (WMSE) (talk) 08:38, 26 May 2021 (UTC)Reply
KB har vågat sätta CC 0 på alla SOU de har skannat (fram till 1999), så de har i alla fall gjort bedömningen att de inte omfattas av upphovsrätt. Eventuellt behöver man ta bort de omslagen som når upp till verkshöjd. Belteshassar (talk) 10:04, 26 May 2021 (UTC)Reply

Riksdagstryck edit

Jag hittade 2.6 GB zippat riksdagstryck med CC0 hos KB. Det verkar vara en lägre hängande frukt för leksemerna. Har du någon idé till hur vi bästa skapar leksem utifrån dessa?

Ska jag bygga en API och slänga upp på toolservern likt Pasleims Då kan man anropa den och få svar med text tillbaka tänkte jag.

Har du någon idé till vad vi vill veta?

Här är ett smakprov:

Bland de olika delar af Fäderneslandets historia, som för sig behandlade,
kunna sprida ljus öfver det hela, intager Riksdagarnes
historia onekligen ett vigtigt rum. Den tid har funnits, då Sveriges
rikes ständer ej voro utan inflytande på Europas angelägenheter;
om rikets förhållanden till dess grannar, om statsskickets utveckling,
om alla inre ärenden af allmän betydenhet, hafva de blott
tidtals saknat den röst dem tillkommit. Af den stora mängd handlingar,
som förvaras dels i Riksarkivet, dels i andra arkiv och
samlingar, utgöra ock Riksdagshandlingar en ej ringa del. Många
försök äro gjorda att dem begagna för vår historia, och icke få
partiela försök att utgifva sådana akter, i deras helhet eller i utdrag.
En allmän, vidtomfattande, från äldre tider i ett sammanhang
fortgående samling af detta slag torde väl en gång vara att
vänta, bekostad af statsmedel; och skall blifva ett af de väsendtligaste
bidrag till rikets historia. Ett jemnförelsevis mindre företag,
men i sig sjelf ganska stort, har vid sednast förflutna Riksdag
blifvit på förhand af Sveriges Ridderskap och Adel beslutadt:
att från trycket utgifva ståndets särskildta riksdagsprotokoll, med
tillhörande handlingar, från den tid de finnas först förvarade i Riddarhus-arkivet.
Om vår adel på grund af rättighet, eller af sjelftagen myndighet
och häfd, verksamt, och oftast mera än de andra stånden, ingripit
i allmänna ärendens behandling; så har den ock från tidigare
dagar än de andra, efterlemnat en sammanhängande följd af skriftliga
handlingar, som vittna om denna verksamhet, och upplysa
ståndets egen och rikets historia. Och i följd af båda delarne kan
Adeln hafva fullt skäl och rätt att taga första steget till offentliggörande
af dessa rika skatter.

Hur lägger jag in att blivit förut stavades blifvit? Ska vi ha 2 leksem och den förre pekar på den senare med "härledd från"?

Ska vi ge oss på att matcha med (svenska) personer i Wikidata födda runt samma tid? Skulle det vara nyttigt? Typ omnämnt i Riksdagstryck xx? --So9q (talk) 01:08, 27 May 2021 (UTC)Reply

Entomologisk tidskrift edit

Hi, I just wanted to give you a "heads up" that I've merged Entomologisk Tidskrift (Q80450677) that you created with the existing Entomologisk Tidskrift (Q5380616). These are the same journal as far as I can tell. Not only do the names match, but the ISSN (P236) for Entomologisk Tidskrift (Q5380616) is 0013-886X and you'll see the same ISSN is given in one of the external sources you used: It's unusual for a journal currently being published to lack an ISSN, hence I find that it's a useful way to avoid duplicates.

Nationalmuseum Sweden artist ID added to people not an artist and the links do not work edit

See for example Maria Elisabeth Coyet (Q62118567) where the ID is added to someone who is not an artist, I suspect it is because her image is in the museum. None of the ones I found that are errors have a working link, I saved this one to show you. I may have deleted 10 already. Please ping me when you respond. --RAN (talk) 07:09, 10 November 2021 (UTC)Reply

dups from recent batch edit

Wikidata:Database_reports/identical_birth_and_death_dates/1 caught a few dups you created back in October. Sample:

You might want to have a look. The advantage of the list is that it finds them even when names/labels are slightly different.

To merge, click on the link in the column on the right side. --- Jura 06:12, 13 November 2021 (UTC)Reply

Seems you created duplicates even when an identically labeled item was available:
You may want to double check your creations. The above report only finds those where the P569 and P570 are available and identical.

Norske gaardsnavne edit

God kveld! Kan du ta en kikk på Norske Gaardnavne. Oplysninger samlade til brug ved Matrikelens Revision (Q65528781) og Norske Gaardnavne (Q1812619) jeg mener disse bør slåes sammen. Jeg forutsetter at disse to representerer verket som helhet. Det finnes og emner for det enkelte bind. som f.eks Norske Gaardnavne: Oplysninger samlede til Brug ved Matrikelens Revision.

Tillskriven edit

Could you have a look at Special:Search/Tillskriven haswbstatement:P31=Q5? If I understand correctly, "Tillskriven" means "attributed to", so I doubt this items are notable per se, but should probably be merged. Thanks, --Epìdosis 18:03, 9 February 2022 (UTC)Reply

While in Q109295756 the only identifier seems broken; how do you usually manage such cases? --Epìdosis 18:10, 9 February 2022 (UTC)Reply
And Special:Search/"Hans skola" haswbstatement:P31=Q5 seems to be "his school", so these items should either change instance or be merged. Thanks, --Epìdosis 16:20, 10 February 2022 (UTC)Reply

Recent Nationalmuseum artwork imports edit

Hi! Your recent imports of artworks from Nationalmuseum could need some cleanup. Titles and labels are often wrong and the IIIF links use non-canonical versions.

The titles and labels I imagine comes from NMs own data or API however their fields for English and German titles aren't very often in English or German as this data historically has been used not for multilingual purposes but for display.

I did some manual clean up in Q110806088 as an example. Abbe98 (talk) 17:02, 19 March 2022 (UTC)Reply

Clarifications regarding my modifications on Protected Areas (Nature Reserves) (Q29580583) edit

My modifications
Hello Alicia Fagerving (WMSE)  ,
Looking at this page, it doesn't seem CC0. This is why it is important to add a reference for the use of this property: we will always be sure of the value (license), because CC licenses are irrevocable. It would be at least "CC-BY" (if we talk about data, photos and CC), but you have to find the page that indicates the explicit use of CC with the "CC Nomenclature" (license version). It might not even be that public license. Without this page, I think we cannot indicate a CC license.
Cordially. —Eihel (talk) 16:05, 16 May 2022 (UTC)Reply

Koordinater från biblioteksdatabasen edit

Jag ändrade en uppenbart felaktig koordinat för Norrtälje stadsbibliotek som kommit med import från bibilioteksdatabasen. [8] Jag vet inte om det bör göras något för att påpeka sådant uppströms. Arvelius (talk) 07:32, 9 August 2022 (UTC)Reply

Det kanske är någon form av rockad i databasen. Q61751668 som har koordinater där stadsbiblioteket ligger har enligt biblioteksdatabasen besöksadress Gamla lasarettsbyggnaden [9] och vad jag förstår har det legat på samma ställe som sjukhuset ligger idag. Men jag ser inte koorinater i det publika webgränssnittet av biblioteksdatabasen. Arvelius (talk) 08:09, 9 August 2022 (UTC)Reply
