No. There are multi-continent countries where P17 doesn't imply continent.

Infovarius (talkcontribs)

And there can be even cities (or may be even smaller places) which belong to 2 continents simultaneuosly.

New OpenRefine reconciliation service

Pintoch (talkcontribs)


Thank you for wearing the {{User loves OpenRefine}} userbox on your user page!

Because the existing Wikidata reconciliation service has had severe performance issues recently, I have created a new one which should be faster and more robust. You can add it to OpenRefine in the reconciliation dialog with the following URL: https://wikidata.reconci.link/en/api (or by replacing en by any other language code).

If you have any issues with this new service, let me know.

Happy reconciling! − Pintoch (talk)

Thanks for the information.

Invitation for the WikiProject COVID-19 call tomorrow (Monday, 15 of June)

TiagoLubiana (talkcontribs)

Hello Bodhisattwa,

I would like to invite you to the tomorrow (Monday, 15 of June) cal of the Wikiproject COVID-19 at 15:00 UTC!

This is the link for the call:  https://meet.google.com/vtp-ighz-npx

This is the link for the etherpad: https://etherpad.wikimedia.org/p/wikidata_covid_notes

The WikiProject seems to be losing momentum. Perception of the size of COVID-19 as an enormous problem is fading (at least in Brazil). That might be a sign of things getting better, but it is also very dangerous (as they might not be that better yet).

In tomorrow's call, I would like to discuss with you two important and related questions:

- How can this WikiProject best serve the anti-COVID-19 effort?

- What can this project offer for the post-COVID-19 Wikidata world?

As usual, if you have any topics to add, you can do so either before at the Project Meeting Page or at the meeting.

or at the meeting.

I hope you can make it!

All the best,



Bodhisattwa (talkcontribs)

Sure, I will be there.

Greetings! Could you translate for me the following labels into Bengali?

English Bengali
Ancient Greek playwright

(man who wrote plays in ancient Greece)

প্রাচীন গ্রীক নাট্যকার
tragedy by Aeschylus

(tragic play written by Aeschylus (Q40939))

ইস্কিলুস রচিত বিয়োগান্তক নাটক
tragedy by Euripides

(tragic play written by Euripides (Q48305))

ইউরিপিদিস রচিত বিয়োগান্তক নাটক
tragedy by Sophocles

(tragic play written by Sophocles (Q7235))

সফোক্লিস রচিত বিয়োগান্তক নাটক
comedy by Aristophanes

(comic play written by Aristophanes (Q43353))

অরিস্তফেনিস রচিত মিলনান্তক নাটক
comedy by Menander

(comic play written by Menander (Q118992))

মিনান্দার রচিত মিলনান্তক নাটক

Thanks for any help you can provide. I can paste them in to all the data items where they apply, but I need help because I do not know Bengali myself.

Bodhisattwa (talkcontribs)

I have translated the labels. Please don't hesitate to knock me if you need any other help in Bengali.

EncycloPetey (talkcontribs)

I've noticed that neither Aristophanes (Q43353) nor Menander (Q118992) has a Bengali label. There are also no links to bn.WP so these two comic playwrights may have no articles there. They are the two most important comic playwrights of antiquity. If you can determine how their names are written in Bengali and add the labels, it would be appreciated. I am trying to ensure that the great writers of Greek drama have data items accessible in all the major languages of India and its neighboring countries.
