Are you going to keep Q98543441, Q105661207, Q108688199, Q64682986, Q105814904 and Q111265185 in this wiki while you wait for Infrastruktur to undelete the other pages?

Bovlb (talkcontribs)

I'm not sure what you're talking about here. Are you asking me to delete them? I see they're all on WD:RFD. If you have more to say about these, you should add it to the discussion there.

Infrastruktur (talkcontribs)

Curious about an interpretation. I'm interpreting WD:N point 1.4a to mean that Commons categories that is only used for categorization does not establish notability. Implying that categories with associated images do, but this is assuming the pictures comply with Commons' own policies which basically says pictures that are clear marketing isn't notable and candidates for deletion.

Have I misunderstood something here? Still got my training-wheels on I suppose.

Bovlb (talkcontribs)

As I understand it, 1.4 only applies to category items, that is items that are instances of Wikimedia category (Q4167836). It does not apply to Commons categories used as sitelinks on non-category items.

Infrastruktur (talkcontribs)

Thanks. I think I understand now.

Hello,i hope your fine Why did you delete my Wikidata after 9 months?? Q113708516 It is possible to return it? Sincerely TodayWiki7 (talk)

Bovlb (talkcontribs)

Hi! Thanks for following up.

Q113708516 was deleted pursuant to a deletion request. It appears to have been for a duplicate of items that have been deleted in the past by at least three separate admins. If you wish to have the deletion reviewed, you will need to contact those admins about their original decision. See Wikidata:Guide to requests for undeletion for more information.

I'm slightly puzzled about one point: You describe this item as "my Wikidata", but it doesn't look like you have ever edited this item. Did you get the item number wrong, or were you perhaps using a different account?

Ladsgroup (talkcontribs)

@Bovlb The user is a known sock puppeteer and spammer of "Siavash Shahsavari". I blocked the account.

Any hints on why bathroom has "country" Ghana?

Silva Selva (talkcontribs)

Hey @Bovlb!

I was looking at your edit for bathroom (Q190771) where you added P17 as Ghana (Q117) - you're a way more experienced editor than I am, and I was wondering if there was something in your editing pipeline that might have led to this mistake so just wanted to give you a heads-up :)

Bovlb (talkcontribs)

Hmm. This claim came in through a merge, and was originally added by Faakorafik. I have removed it.

First of all, I wish you a healthy and beautiful day.

Thank you very much for taking your precious time to review my message. Can you review the errors in the Josh Kesselman item, can you help me fix what needs to be fixed?

If the item is missing, I can create a new item and add more information. I will then seek your approval and support in combining the Items.


Waiting for your feedback.


Bovlb (talkcontribs)

Sorry to take so long. I was on a road trip.

I have tidied up a few obvious errors.

Trade (talkcontribs)

I think the IP might be the author of the allfamous.org URL

Bovlb (talkcontribs)

Quite possibly, but this item passes N3 and weakly passes N2 (identifiers are social media only). It was kept in RFD.

I don't see why not. The fact that we find Tor to be the source of spam and vandalism doesn't mean that it doesn't have legitimate uses that we ought to document.

Trade (talkcontribs)

Isn't Tor on the local URL blacklist tho?

Summary by Bovlb
Montyoriginal (talkcontribs)

Dear Bovlb, I know that last time when I created my wikidata page, I had no presence but now I am a notable person, please don't delete this page of mine against previous deleted page, you can go to sources about me. Can check. So I request you to please recover my page soon

Horcrux (talkcontribs)
Bovlb (talkcontribs)

Again, I don't feel like I'm the expert in identifying this user. I want to be sure before I block and mass-deleted. Yes this is an IP from Milan creating lots of items, but what is the specific indication for you? CC @fralambert.

Horcrux (talkcontribs)

I'm 100% sure (s)he is. His/her modus operandi can be instantaneously recognized:

  • same cluster of items (topic: Lake Como or Milan, in particular the quarter of Quadronno)
  • wrong usage of many properties (P854 out of references, P580 instead of P1619 or P571, ecc.)
  • obsessive and massive usage of generic properties (P793, P3342, P7153, ...) without a clear semantics
  • massive creation of Wikipedia articles in many distinct languages (that (s)he clearly doesn't know), which are timely deleted (e.g. )
  • wrong usage of identifiers (e.g. )

and so forth.

In a first moment I tried many times to contact him/her explaining why his/her contribution is problematic (along with all the hoaxes (s)he wrote, obviously), but (s)he played the pretended to be dumb and completely ignored me.

Bovlb (talkcontribs)

OK. I blocked and mass deleted, that tool can't touch the items from a month ago.

@MisterSynergy: Did you have a script for this?

MisterSynergy (talkcontribs)
Bovlb (talkcontribs)

BTW, these creations go back to 2018. Are they all implicated?

Horcrux (talkcontribs)

I would delete from 2022 on. I think his previous creations have been already "filtered".

Oh, another think (s)he's obsessed with is to show any kind of connection between Leonardo da Vinci (Q762) and Lake Como (Q15523).

Bovlb (talkcontribs)

Hi! Thanks for following up. I put a notability warning on your talk page. I hope this brings some clarity for you. If not, please feel free to ask for more assistance.

New Contributer (talkcontribs)

New Contributer (talkcontribs)

I'm afraid I'm most comfortable with on-wiki conversation.

Dear Bovlb , Hello. Nice to meet you . I know that this information was already entered and deleted. I have followed all the rules. I am the official actor of Hossein Saei. I will provide you with any necessary information, dear manager, so that you can please rebuild the page. Thanks for your help

Bovlb (talkcontribs)

Hi! Thanks for following up.

As I already indicated, this item was deleted as a recreation of a deleted item, which we do not permit. This entity has twice been judged non-notable (including after a discussion). You can appeal this deletion, but the onus is now on you to demonstrate notability.
