metropolis with less than 1 mio inhabitants

Chribl (talkcontribs)

'metropolis' is a subclass of 'city with millions of inhabitants', but the description of 'metropolis' says 'very large and significant city or urban area usually with millions of inhabitants', which means there could be entitis which are a 'metropolis', but have less than 1 mio inhabitants. And there are. Most of them are turkish or south african because they are classified as 'metropolitan muncipality in turkey/south africa' which is a subclass of 'metropolitan muncipality' which is a subclass of 'metropolis' which is a subclass of 'city with millions of inhabitants'. In my opinion that last subclass classification should be removed. But i am not sure because if that's the problem, I would expect more miss-classified cities from other countries. How do you think we should fix that?

Funny you should be adding synset IDs at the moment: I just made a Listeria list counting the same as far as lexeme sense links to Wikidata items are concerned.

Yes, I've had this task on my backlog for a while, and I finally got around to it. Looks like I'll be pushing them through slowly because of maxlag issues.

This user is making a fake claim of being a researcher. His ORCID ID has nothing that show he has done anything related to research.

Bovlb (talkcontribs)

While the notability here is thin, this is clearly an identifiable concept, so I am am not inclined to delete. Sorry.

I see you have also posted this (twice) to Wikidata:Requests_for_deletions, so perhaps you will have more luck there.

Also, I see that you attempted to blank this item. Please don't do that again, as it is regarded as vandalism.

Hello Bovlb! Could you protect Q83303720? Has excessive vandalism.

Bovlb (talkcontribs)

I have reverted the latest vandalism and semi-protected it for a month. Sorry to be slow. Real-life distractions.

Hello, could you please help with updating a protected wikidata

Ernilandia (talkcontribs)

Hi! coming from eswiki, i saw some vandalism on article about Diego Pérez de los Cobos. The wikidata statement for that article has been vandalized and it seems that the vandalism survived the protection of the article. The wikidata is: Q40761267. Under occupation, in english language it says "Carlista", while the spanish version says "Heroe Nacional" (National hero).

That is incorrect and non-neutral. The correct statement should be : occupation: Guardia Civil (Q50681172), both in spanish and english.

thanks fr your help. ~~~~

Hi, thanks for the edit, it's a duplicate I had created by mistake and noticed soon after. I'll use merges in the future if needed.

Hello! I had seen you had done a revert of one of my contributions... that is okay! I am new here and i am still learning so thank you for leaving a message on my talk because it helps the growing process. Thanks!

Bovlb (talkcontribs)

Hi! Welcome to Wikidata, and thanks for responding.

I wanted to draw your attention to Help:Description and, in particular, the guidance that descriptions should be in mid-sentence case, so words should not be capitalized unless they are proper names.

Bunkytrap34 (talkcontribs)

Ahh okay i see what you are talking about! Mid-sentence case; Correct! Thank you Bovlb

Hello Bovlb. Thanks for your message and your suggestions about duplicated items. From now on, I will do it in the way you explain. Sorry, I did not know the implications of my changes. Best regards.
