Welcome to Wikidata, Discostu!

Wikidata is a free knowledge base that you can edit! It can be read and edited by humans and machines alike and you can go to any item page now and add to this ever-growing database!

Need some help getting started? Here are some pages you can familiarize yourself with:

  • Introduction – An introduction to the project.
  • Wikidata tours – Interactive tutorials to show you how Wikidata works.
  • Community portal – The portal for community members.
  • User options – including the 'Babel' extension, to set your language preferences.
  • Contents – The main help page for editing and using the site.
  • Project chat – Discussions about the project.
  • Tools – A collection of user-developed tools to allow for easier completion of some tasks.

Please remember to sign your messages on talk pages by typing four tildes (~~~~); this will automatically insert your username and the date.

If you have any questions, please ask me on [[User talk:|my talk page]]. If you want to try out editing, you can use the sandbox to try. Once again, welcome, and I hope you quickly feel comfortable here, and become an active editor for Wikidata.

long take / PlansequenzEdit

They have different pages on it.wiki. Basically, long take is any long shot, while piano sequenza is a full narrative sequence. I think it should be called sequence shot in English -- 16:32, 5 May 2020 (UTC)

advanced stop line (Q106636966) und advanced stop box (Q3134674)Edit

Hallo Discostu!
Ich habe deine hinzugefügten Alias von advanced stop line (Q106636966) zu advanced stop box (Q3134674) verschoben. Meine Absicht hinter dem ersten Datenobjekt war eine klare Abgrenzung der vorgezogenen Haltelinie zur ARAS. Beide Bauformen sind meiner Beobachtung nach zumindest mal in Deutschland und Luxemburg präsent. Im englischsprachigen Raum (und entsprechend auch auf OpenStreetMap) scheint eine Unterscheidung hingegen leider nicht in dem Maße getroffen zu werden, weshalb die Bezeichnung "advanced stop line" zugegebenermaßen etwas unscharf ist und teilweise für beide Bauarten genutzt wird. --Nw520 (talk) 10:38, 2 June 2021 (UTC)

Ich weiß nicht, ob diese Differenzierung so sinnvoll ist, wenn wir weder in den Wikipedias noch auf Commons diese so machen. Siehe zum Beispiel en.wiki: "An advanced stop line (ASL), also called advanced stop box or bike box, is a type of road marking at signalised road junctions allowing certain types of vehicle a head start when the traffic signal changes from red to green." Und du gibst ja auch selbst zu, dass die Begriffe unscharf verwendet werden. Ich wäre daher dafür, diese Items zu vereinen. -- Discostu (talk) 10:56, 2 June 2021 (UTC)
Persönlich sehe ich keinen Anlass für eine Zusammenführung. Meine Einschränkung mit dem "unscharfen" Begriff habe ich ausschließlich auf die Sicht aus dem englischsprachigen Raum bezogen. In der deutschsprachigen Erläuterung in w:de:Radverkehrsanlage#Führung des Radverkehrs an Knotenpunkten hingegen wird spezifisch nur die ARAS dargestellt. Auch in der Q1339180 wird in Abschnitt 4.4.2 unterschieden zwischen "Vorgezogene Haltlinien" und "Aufgeweitete Radaufstellstreifen", was m.E. ausreichend Relevanz impliziert. --Nw520 (talk) 11:47, 2 June 2021 (UTC)
OK, überzeugt. Wenn du Lust hast, könntest du ja die Commons-Kategorie ebenfalls aufteilen, damit diese Differenzierung nicht nur auf Wikidata dokumentiert ist. -- Discostu (talk) 12:02, 2 June 2021 (UTC)
Mit stellt sich dann die Frage, welche englischsprachigen Kategorien ich nutzen sollte. Leider fehlt es mir an zwei trennscharfen Begriffen. --Nw520 (talk) 15:23, 2 June 2021 (UTC)

Call for participation in the interview study with Wikidata editorsEdit

Dear Discostu,

I hope you are doing good,

I am Kholoud, a researcher at King’s College London, and I work on a project as part of my PhD research that develops a personalized recommendation system to suggest Wikidata items for the editors based on their interests and preferences. I am collaborating on this project with Elena Simperl and Miaojing Shi.

I would love to talk with you to know about your current ways to choose the items you work on in Wikidata and understand the factors that might influence such a decision. Your cooperation will give us valuable insights into building a recommender system that can help improve your editing experience.

Participation is completely voluntary. You have the option to withdraw at any time. Your data will be processed under the terms of UK data protection law (including the UK General Data Protection Regulation (UK GDPR) and the Data Protection Act 2018). The information and data that you provide will remain confidential; it will only be stored on the password-protected computer of the researchers. We will use the results anonymized to provide insights into the practices of the editors in item selection processes for editing and publish the results of the study to a research venue. If you decide to take part, we will ask you to sign a consent form, and you will be given a copy of this consent form to keep.

If you’re interested in participating and have 15-20 minutes to chat (I promise to keep the time!), please either contact me at kholoudsaa@gmail.com or kholoud.alghamdi@kcl.ac.uk or use this form https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSdmmFHaiB20nK14wrQJgfrA18PtmdagyeRib3xGtvzkdn3Lgw/viewform?usp=sf_link with your choice of the times that work for you.

I’ll follow up with you to figure out what method is the best way for us to connect.

Please contact me if you have any questions or require more information about this project.

Thank you for considering taking part in this research.
