August HirschEdit

Hi, sorry about this - I've linked to "August Hirsch" from Commons (using the "edit links" link on commons:Category:August Hirsch), and it adds the link back where you deleted it. Your edit here seems to have also removed all interwiki links from the commons category? I'm not sure if that is to be expected. If you feel that it's incorrect again - feel free to revert again and I'll not touch it. Maybe I've been doing things wrong frequently by using the link from Commons. Thanks & apologies.

Hi Deadstar, I am sorry if I did wrong. I removed the link to the category because there is a property for Commons-Categories itself (Property:P373). In the case of August Hirsch there is already a link to it, so your edit just doubled the link. I do not know about the connections from Commons to WD but I think there should be the same link only once. But I will not undo your edit if it has negative effects. Regards --Dorades (talk) 16:10, 2 February 2016 (UTC)
Hi & hmmmm... you are right though, there should only be one link. And if it has it's own property, why is the automatic link I'm using putting it under "Other websites"? This looks a bit odd to me. I'm not sure who to ask about this (and I don't know anything about WD). I'll see if I can find more info on it on Commons. Thanks for your help. Deadstar (talk) 16:57, 2 February 2016 (UTC)

Sigmund FreudEdit

Hello Dorades, English is not my native language. I did not remove all the informations, but some of them :

  • this was inaccurate : [1]
  • Nobel Prize : he was never seriously near the prize ;
  • Human being : 4 occurrences, even Russian Wikipedian...
  • Friedrich Nietzsche : rather less than Goethe or Charcot or...

I'm trying to keep only accurate informations on this page, I'm not an Anti Freudian... Best regards, --Pierrette13 (talk) 08:02, 8 July 2018 (UTC)

Hi Pierrette13, the way I see it, you removed 6 pseudonyms for no reason; quite a lot of sources and information on the origin of information; his residences; fields of work; academic degree. Regarding his nominations for the Nobel Prize, please see (the official site of the Nobel Prize) -- being nominated doesn't mean he had to be close to win it. If Friedrich Nietzsche was not the most important influence for him, then please add the other ones and don't delete a valuable information. I am not much involved in this item, but I think you should revise your edits. Best regards --Dorades (talk) 10:16, 8 July 2018 (UTC)
Hello Dorades, many things you reverted back are inaccurate : he was not a scholar, never a "university professor" with an academic chair (he was responsible for a seminary for medicine students), Carl Jung was never his student at university, he was never near to receive Nobel Prize. You should have askes other people before you edited this page. I don't think Russian or Polish Wikipedia should be accurate sources unless you have checked them, which you probably didn't do. I don't think judaïsm is an ethnic belonging : he was austrian-born, I don't think "atheism" is appropriate for a man who never fought Religious ideas. It seems to me that you reverted everything without checking details, I don't see the point. I've come to you once but I receive no proper answer, you don't seem to check informations before you delete, --Pierrette13 (talk) 04:38, 17 December 2018 (UTC)
Hi Pierrette13, in fact I've come to you and asked you about your edits and you were not able to explain them satisfactoricaly. More and more I get the impression that you do not understand certain mechanics of Wikidata. For example, "imported from Wikimedia project" is a practical reference where the information is derived from. I don't have to check this, because this information was added automatically by bots. It is valuable, because everyone can learn where this information comes from and in case of a mistake fix the error here and in the corresponding source. Also, I did not add the information about his professorship or Carl Gustav Jung. Atheism is defined in the en-WP as follows: "Atheism is, in the broadest sense, the absence of belief in the existence of deities." Also cf. the article on w:Sigmund Freud's views on religion: "Freud regarded God as an illusion". For the nominations for nobel prizes see above. Besides, it seems to me that I am not the only one who is discontented with your methods of editing. And of course, yes, I checked every information before restoring them, that's why I did not revert all of your edits. If I made a mistake with regards to content, feel free to revert me. --Dorades (talk) 13:48, 17 December 2018 (UTC)


I explain. This person was born female and biologically is. What happens is that it is considered to be neither man nor woman. Several things can happen to her, but one may not want to recognize herself as a woman. That of "I am neither male nor female", first that is not something serious, second that is biologically incorrect and third wikidata does not recognize "non-binary gender" as an entity type of sex and gender, that's why it throws error. That is why I think it is convenient to catalog this person as feminine even though she does not recognize it.--Alejandrocaro35 (talk) 00:18, 17 December 2018 (UTC)

That is incorrect, cf. Property talk:P21, allowed values for persons: male (Q6581097), female (Q6581072), intersex (Q1097630), hermaphrodite (Q303479), transgender person (Q189125), transgender female (Q1052281), transgender male (Q2449503), non-binary (Q48270), fa'afafine (Q1399232), māhū (Q3277905), kathoey (Q746411), fakaleiti (Q350374), hijra (Q660882), travesti (Q17148251). --Dorades (talk) 00:21, 17 December 2018 (UTC)
All right, it's already reversed. The problem that apparently Wikidata has an error that this category non-binary (Q48270), in Spanish to the article of the person catalogs it as Personas no categorizadas por sexo (People not categorized by sex). --Alejandrocaro35 (talk) 14:05, 17 December 2018 (UTC)
Thank you for revising. Do I get it right, that the problem appears in the Spanish WP? --Dorades (talk) 14:09, 17 December 2018 (UTC)


When a German Wikipedia category indicates that someone is an employee of a university.. What is then your problem? Thanks, GerardM (talk) 17:06, 12 March 2019 (UTC)

Hey GerardM, Humboldt University of Berlin is the institutional successor of Frederick William University, the former one started to exist only in 1949. Since the three concerning persons died before 1949 and already have Q20266330 as P108, the edits seemed to be wrong. Please correct me if my reverts were not right.
