Why remove it?

Is it really Wikidata's purpose to collect everything down to the single CPU?

Thanks for filling Repology names all over Wikidata!

After some fixes I've made here (removed some incorrect properties and split some entries which referred to multiple projects at once) and in Repology (added some missing project merges) it looks like Repology can be switched to using P:P6931 instead of Arch/AUR package names to match Wikidata entries to its projects. Currently there are also more entries with P:P6931 filled (1999) than with Arch/AUR packages (1271) so it'll also increase coverage. However not all entries with packages have Repology names filled yet, so switching now would cause some entries to disappear. Since you're adding P6931s you'd probably be interested in filling the remaining ones. If you need any data for that, feel free to ask me. I've created Wikidata:Partnerships and data imports to discuss that, but haven't got any feedback yet.

Hi Dhx1,

May I ask you why you are clearing and reverting my edits on {{Q|Q21933717}}?

There is an ceb.wp lemma about it. If you want to have this item cleared, then you should also insist on the deletion of the ceb.wp page. Please stop reverting the edits.

Kind regards,

@QZanden I don't speak "ceb" and therefore can't request a page deletion. I've made an attempt but don't even know what deletion template to use on the ceb wiki. has been raised to delete the Wikidata item.

Dhx1 (talkcontribs)

@QZanden: @Wolverène has kindly marked the article for speedy deletion on the ceb wiki.

Oh, I see. It is indeed a non-existent park. Because there was an article on ceb, I thought it was a real park. I dont speak ceb as well, but google translate helps a lot :).

Dhx1 (talkcontribs)

ceb and sv Wikipedia's are full of bot-created geography related articles that are duplicated many times, and frequently created in error for items or places that simply don't exist. There is a Wikidata item and page describing the bot at the centre of it all: Lsjbot (Q17430942). Most of the errors exist in unreliable data sets used by this bot and other bots. It's quite annoying/frustrating trying to get rid of duplicates as merging Wikipedia articles is not as easy as merging Wikidata items!

@Rehman Agreed. It makes a lot of sense for this project to be a subproject of Electrical Grids.

Rehman (talkcontribs)

Great :) I will do the move today. Cheers.
