Please slow downEdit

Hi, can you please slow down editing with Artix Kreiger 2? You are causing noticeable dispatch lag. Cheers, Hoo man (talk) 14:40, 13 March 2018 (UTC)

Hoo man (talkcontribslogs), I can't control the speed honestly for QuickStatements (I wish that is a feature honestly). But I will stop editing for a while. Thanks. Artix Kreiger (talk) 14:46, 13 March 2018 (UTC)
Are you running several QuickStatements in parallel? I don't think it usually goes this fast, if it does, that's certainly a bug. Please watch this in the future. Cheers, Hoo man (talk) 14:54, 13 March 2018 (UTC)
Hoo man (talkcontribslogs), No parallel jobs at all. I was running 1 batch on 1 tab on a browser. The speed it runs, it seems is just, whatever it feels like. Artix Kreiger (talk) 14:56, 13 March 2018 (UTC)
I just looked at https://wikidata.wikiscan.org/?menu=live&date=24&list=users&sort=weight&filter=all and you're going 210/m. Account blocked. I don't care if the tool is malfunctioning, you're responsible for your edits and your edit rate. I suggest you get Magnus to implement a throttle. When that's implemented, your account might be unblocked. Multichill (talk) 22:16, 24 March 2018 (UTC)

Considering Q18447381Edit

Hi Artix, considering this edit, that was not a mistake. The item itself, and all three non-English WP articles are about an Italian village, while the English article is about a church. So i've removed the link to the English article again. - Husky (talk) 21:54, 26 March 2018 (UTC)

sorry should have checked. Artix Kreiger (talk) 22:14, 26 March 2018 (UTC)
No problem, thanks! Husky (talk) 20:57, 2 April 2018 (UTC)

BlockedEdit

@Rschen7754: can you verbalize what namely consists “abuses” of the person owning user:Winterysteppe and Artix_Kreiger? Is ownership of two accounts—which do not even overlap in time in this case—forbidden on this site? Incnis Mrsi (talk) 20:41, 18 April 2018 (UTC)

@Incnis Mrsi: Yes, see WD:SOCK. --Rschen7754 00:49, 19 April 2018 (UTC)
@Rschen7754: what means “yes”? The policy only explains possible misuses which are forbidden. Again, where did an improper use of two—or do you know more?—accounts happen? You may not import grievances of en.Wikipedia’s community having zero relevance to Wikidata. Incnis Mrsi (talk) 03:04, 19 April 2018 (UTC)
"Alternate accounts must be publicly declared, and the userpages of the alternate accounts must link back to the main account in an obvious fashion". Also, before you start defending every LTA, you might want to see what they did on test.wikidata. --Rschen7754 03:10, 19 April 2018 (UTC)
Thanks for a serious answer, at last. From my part, the times when I generally trusted en.Wikipedia are gone (since c. December 2013), I mistrust every Wikipedia and its functionaries, many of whom are dickish petty abusers intolerable to a slight dissenting expression. Therefore a person committing abuses in Wikipedia only is not “an LTA” to me. Incnis Mrsi (talk) 08:34, 19 April 2018 (UTC)

Structured Data on Commons Newsletter - Summer 2018Edit

Welcome to the newsletter for Structured Data on Wikimedia Commons! You can update your subscription to the newsletter and contribute to the next issue. Do inform others who you think will want to be involved in the project!

Community updates
  • Our dedicated IRC channel: wikimedia-commons-sd webchat
  • Since our last newsletter, the Structured Data team has moved into designing and building prototypes for various features. The use of multilingual captions in the UploadWizard and on the file page has been researched, designed, discussed, and built out for use. Behind the scenes, back-end work on search is taking place and designs are being drawn up for the front-end. There will soon be specifications published for the use of the first Wikidata property on Commons, "Depicts," and a prototype is to be released to go along with that.

Research

Two research projects about Wikimedia Commons are currently ongoing, or in the process of being finished:

  1. Research:Curation workflows on Wikimedia Commons—a project that seeks to understand the current workflows of Commons contributors who curate media (categorize it, delete it, link to it from other projects, etc.).
  2. Research:Technical needs of external re-users of Commons media—soliciting feedback from individuals and organizations that re-use Commons content outside of Wikimedia projects, in order to understand their current painpoints and unmet needs.
Development
  • Prototypes will be available for Depicts soon.

Structured Data Newsletter - Research link fixEdit

Greetings,

The newsletter omitted two interwiki prefixes, breaking the links on non-meta wikis as you might see above. Here are the correct links:

  1. m:Research:Curation workflows on Wikimedia Commons—a project that seeks to understand the current workflows of Commons contributors who curate media (categorize it, delete it, link to it from other projects, etc.).
  2. m:Research:Technical needs of external re-users of Commons media—soliciting feedback from individuals and organizations that re-use Commons content outside of Wikimedia projects, in order to understand their current painpoints and unmet needs.

My apologies, I hope you find the corrected links helpful.

  • The info portal on Structured Commons now includes a section on GLAM (Galleries, Libraries, Archives and Museums).
  • We are currently planning the first GLAM pilot projects that will use structured data on Wikimedia Commons. One project has already started: the Swedish Heritage Board researches and develops a prototype tool to provide improved metadata (translations, data additions...) from Wikimedia Commons back to the source institution. Read the project brief.
  • The documentation for batch uploads of files to Wikimedia Commons will be improved in 2019, as part of preparing for Structured Data on Wikimedia Commons. To prepare, the GLAM team at the Wikimedia Foundation wants to understand better which types of documentation you already use, and how you like to learn new GLAM-Wiki skills and knowledge. Fill in a short survey to provide input!
Stay up to date!

Captions in JanuaryEdit

The previous message from today says captions will be released in November in the text. January is the correct month. My apologies for the potential confusion. -- Keegan (WMF) (talk) 20:43, 7 January 2019 (UTC)

Structured Data - file captions coming this week (January 2019)Edit

My apologies if this is a duplicate message for you, it is being sent to multiple lists which you may be signed up for.

Hi all, following up on last month's announcement...

Multilingual file captions will be released this week, on either Wednesday, 9 January or Thursday, 10 January 2019. Captions are a feature to add short, translatable descriptions to files. Here's some links you might want to look follow before the release, if you haven't already:

  1. Read over the help page for using captions - I wrote the page on mediawiki.org because captions are available for any MediaWiki user, feel free to host/modify a copy of the page here on Commons.
  2. Test out using captions on Beta Commons.
  3. Leave feedback about the test on the captions test talk page, if you have anything you'd like to say prior to release.

Additionally, there will be an IRC office hour on Thursday, 10 January with the Structured Data team to talk about file captions, as well as anything else the community may be interested in. Date/time conversion, as well as a link to join, are on Meta.

Thanks for your time, I look forward to seeing those who can make it to the IRC office hour on Thursday. -- Keegan (WMF) (talk) 21:09, 7 January 2019 (UTC)

Structured Data - blogs posted in Wikimedia SpaceEdit

There are two separate blog entries for Structured Data on Commons posted to Wikimedia Space that are of interest:

  • Working with Structured Data on Commons: A Status Report, by Lucas Werkmeister, discusses some ways that editors can work with structured data. Topics include tools that have been written or modified for structured data, in addition to future plans for tools and querying services.
  • Structured Data on Commons - A Blog Series, written by me, is a five-part posting that covers the basics of the software and features that were built to make structured data happen. The series is meant to be friendly to those who may have some knowledge of Commons, but may not know much about the structured data project.
I hope these are informative and useful, comments and questions are welcome. All the blogs offer a comment feature, and you can log in with your Wikimedia account using oAuth. I look forward to seeing some posts over there. -- Keegan (WMF) (talk) 21:33, 23 September 2019 (UTC)
