Готтентотська мораль (talkcontribs)

Hi Bovlb,

sludge (Q1172703) is used for "leftover sludge from any processing operation" in Slavic languages. The word was taken from German w:de:Schlamm ("mud (Q170449)"), but has gotten a more specific meaning.

IMHO the English sludge as well as Dutch slib shall be removed from this item since they have a generic meaning.

Bovlb (talkcontribs)

Thanks for following up.

The word "schlam" is not commonly used in English. It's fine for two items to have the same English label.

Готтентотська мораль (talkcontribs)

It was a bad idea and I'm sorry for renaming the English description of Q1172703.

But that's not what I'm aiming for: w:Sludge is about generic sludge, the articles linked to Q1172703 however about slurry residues in ore processing.

Hi Bovb, can you be more spesific about my deleted contribition? Which part didn't appear constructive to you? The terms i have used is always used by EU , USA and of course Turkey, the country most affected by these terror attacks.

Bovlb (talkcontribs)

Of course. Glad to help. Some points about your changes:

  1. Help:Description#Avoid_controversial_claims says you should avoid including controversial claims in descriptions. PKK is not described as a "terrorist organization" in its description, so adding that elsewhere makes it seem like you are trying to push some specific point. In general, a statement on Kurdistan Workers' Party (Q152220) is the correct place for such a claim, where it can be given with supporting evidence, and qualified as appropriate with statement supported by (P3680) and statement disputed by (P1310). We should not be inserting a disputable claim like this into descriptions, especially on other items.
  2. Help:Description#Capitalization says that descriptions begin with a lowercase letter except when uppercase would normally be required or expected.
  3. In Wikidata, humans are generally instance of (P31) merely of human (Q5). Gender, occupation, position held, etc. all have their own more specific properties.
  4. A claim like occupation (P106) terrorist (Q14886050) would require references.
  5. The property perpetrator (P8031) is used to relate a specific event to the person or organization who perpetrated it. It should not be used to qualify a statement, and the object should not be a class of events.

I hope this helps!

Delete a cross-wiki promotion item

Kiro Bassem (talkcontribs)

Hello Bovlb, I think you should delete this item Mirette Hariri (Q111541642) because It is a cross-wiki promotion and has been deleted several times by User:علاء and It has been deleted several times in many Wikis as well.

Bovlb (talkcontribs)

Thanks for taking the time to follow up on this. We cannot delete this item because it has links to two Wikipedia articles. You need to propose deletion on those client projects and only then post to WD:RFD here.

Kiro Bassem (talkcontribs)

OK, I will see what I can do, although I know nothing about these two languages that the item linked to.

Sorry, my English is not very good, so I use google translate.

I need to manually merge Q20062652 and Q3255150, because these two projects are the same project on wikipedia in different languages, if I don't manually remove the content of Q20062652, the project of zh.wikipedia will not be able to be the same project on ja.wikipedia Make multilingual links.

Or if I have other more convenient ways to make multilingual links of the same project on wikipedia in two different languages, please let me know, thank you.

Bovlb (talkcontribs)

Thanks for following up.

If you feel the two pages should be merged, why not go ahead and merge them? See Help:Merge for details. I recommend installing the Merge Gadget.

Ifulita (talkcontribs)

I have successfully completed the linking of these two projects in the multilingual department, thank you very much for your help.

Hello dear Wikidata administrators

‏I have two accounts with the following usernames: ‏1- @arian_aboutalebi is an Extended confirmed users account created in Persian Wikipedia ‏2- @zaghmarz1 which was created 8 years ago (2014) but I forgot my password by February 2022 . ‏In February, dear @ladsgroup admin blocked me due to spam behavior

‏A few days before I was blocked, I remembered my @zaghmarz1 account password and decided to continue with this account. And in a few days I made 112 edits to update and upgrade the information in Wikidata. Please see 112 edits for me and then tell me which version was wrong? ‏Even if, for example, one of the 112 edits is an error, 111 useful edits have been made, and I think blocking this is not the right thing to do, and we should consider a large number of good and useful edits. Only in one of the editions did I send a message to the esteemed administrator of @bovlb and request that he add the mzn Wikipedia page of Mr. Jamal Aboutalebi ( Iranian politician and environmentalist ) to his item a few days after its creation. Is this spam behavior or requesting to add a resource to a page in Wikidata !? Please help me unblock ‏Please read what I said on the page below and then respond if possible. Thank you for your attention
