Pi bot revertsEdit

In cases like [1], please read the edit summary. "Copy from P373 to commons sitelink" - remove the incorrect Commons category (P373) value from the item, and Pi bot won't copy it over to the sitelink again. Although you probably also want to remove the incorrect link to Commons from de:Holdeurner Irdenware as well, to avoid it being copied back over to Wikidata from the Wikipedia in the future. Or what you've done at Q67086666 also works, and is the best solution. :-) (although the cleanup of P373 and the incorrect commons link is still needed anyway.) Thanks.

I did read the edit summary; there was no incorrect P373, only not one eligible for copying to a sitelink. Also I wondered if Pi bot would back off for a while from an item when reverted, but alas. The problem I'm having is that Pi bot is too fast. As I understand it, if multiple items have a P373 to the same category, then Pi bot won't add a sitelink. I'm going through a few thousand pages by hand now, so I don't know yet whether items will point to the same category. For my next run I think it'll help to process the pages sorted by Commonscat. --bdijkstra (overleg) 20:02, 3 September 2019 (UTC)
@Mike Peel: now that I'm done with this run, I know how I should have done it. Does Pi bot also move Commons-category-sitelinks from "article"-items to "category"-items? --bdijkstra (overleg) 07:52, 12 September 2019 (UTC)
Yes, e.g., [2] [3]. But please don't create category items unless they're necessary (e.g., for linking multiple items to the same category, or if the sitelink is blocked by a gallery). Thanks. Mike Peel (talk) 10:00, 12 September 2019 (UTC)
No problem. So far I've merged more category items than I've created. :) --bdijkstra (overleg) 10:05, 12 September 2019 (UTC)
