Wp/sro in lingua campidaneseEdit

Buon giorno, Epìdosis. Mi sto occupando del progetto wiki in Campidanese, ora in 'Incubator', ma che sta procedendo a gran passi ([1] Sardu campidanesu). La situazione del Campidanese è questa: Language code lookup sro, [2]. Mi domando che cosa accadrà quando il progetto sarà fuori da Incubator e si potrà collegare ogni sua pagina e ogni sua categoria con Wikidata. Intanto, aggiungo ad ogni pagina il rispettivo collegamento a Commons. Per tua informazione, sono rimasti in Incubator i progetti Wikipedia (di area italiana) Cimbro, Emiliano, Romagnolo, Istriano, Giudeo-Italiano, Sassarese (fatta richiesta di uscire da Incubator: [3]) e Campidanese. Grazie dell'attenzione. --Fausta Samaritani (talk) 09:20, 22 April 2022 (UTC)

Q94927001 and Q12409623Edit

Hi Epìdosis,

Seems that Moshe Krausz (Q94927001) and Moshe Krausz (Q12409623) are the same person. The problem is that the GND ID (P227) he was died in 1956 while National Library of Israel J9U ID (P8189) died in 1.9.1986 . The Israeli library mentions source and he was defanitaly was alive after 1956. Place of birth is Meződ (Q594240) which is village mear Miskolc (Q102397). Opinion. Geagea (talk) 12:21, 25 April 2022 (UTC)

@Geagea: Merged, clearly the same person. The source used by GND is not available anymore, but 1956 is surely wrong; @Kolja21: could you have a look? Thanks, --Epìdosis 12:28, 25 April 2022 (UTC)
thanks. Geagea (talk) 13:00, 25 April 2022 (UTC)
  Done Indeed the same person (director of the Palestine Office in Budapest). Jahresberichte für deutsche Geschichte (Q1678640) is stating "Krausz, Moshe (1908-1956)" (no typo). I've added the dates from the National Library of Israel. --Kolja21 (talk) 15:48, 25 April 2022 (UTC)
Thanks Kolja21. Geagea (talk) 19:52, 25 April 2022 (UTC)

About Joseph Breuer (Q12407986). The Q12407986#P735 is incorrect in Hebrew. It should be "יוסף" like Yosef (Q29051199). I already complained about this ridiculous way of working. someone added the ticket based on the English. They have no idea that the Hebrew is not correct. There is no ticket says Joseph and יוסף so it should be created, but what when someone will add label in Chinese... Geagea (talk) 12:19, 26 April 2022 (UTC)

@Geagea: I agree that the way of auto-adding names in languages in non-Latin scripts on the basis of "en" label is a problem. I added Yosef (Q29051199). --Epìdosis 12:27, 26 April 2022 (UTC)
The point is that now the English is not ok. New ticket should be created to fix it... Geagea (talk) 12:34, 26 April 2022 (UTC)
@Geagea: Better? --Epìdosis 12:39, 26 April 2022 (UTC)
Its looks a bit weird in Hebrew. It says "יוסף" in Hebrew and "ג'וזף" in English. My suggestion was that the labals will be only in one language. So name will shown in there language. in that case I would have "יוסף" in Hebrew and "Joseph" in English. In that case we don't need language of work or name (P407). It is better but still weird. Geagea (talk) 12:52, 26 April 2022 (UTC)
@Geagea: Ok, I understand and I agree. The implementation of "mul" (multilingual) labels, which is imminent, should probably solve this. Let's wait. --Epìdosis 12:58, 26 April 2022 (UTC)

sorry to bother you again, does this make sense? Geagea (talk) 14:26, 27 April 2022 (UTC)

@Geagea: not much, official website (P856) is sufficient there. --Epìdosis 14:57, 27 April 2022 (UTC)

Open JerusalemEdit

Ciao!

Ha mai sentito parlare di quest'iniziativa? Vedo che non esiste nessuna proprietà correlata, ma forse sarebbe interessante proporne una...

Tanti auguri, Nomen ad hoc (talk) 11:56, 11 May 2022 (UTC).

@Nomen ad hoc: Grazie per la segnalazione! Non conoscevo il sito http://www.openjerusalem.org/, effettivamente sembra molto interessante. Il mio dubbio principale è che, trattandosi di un sito archivistico, connetterlo a noi non è facilissimo. Allo stato attuale l'authority file (http://www.archives.openjerusalem.org/index.php/actor/browse) ha solo 68 enti e 48 persone, quindi forse conviene attendere. Buona giornata, --Epìdosis 14:40, 11 May 2022 (UTC)

ThanksEdit

Hi! Just wanted to say thanks for the edits on the chilean museum items. I have two question, mostly because I'll continue to put more information and I don't want to repeat the same mistakes.

Again, thanks and have a good day :-) --Soylacarli (talk) 17:54, 14 May 2022 (UTC)

@Soylacarli: Thanks for your import, of course! Yes, located in the administrative territorial entity (P131) should report only the most precise administrative unit (e.g. the commune, not the province and the region), although it is sometimes used imprecisely; private museum (Q614316) and public museum (Q111986502) should always go into instance of (P31) because we are talking of single museums, not of types of museums (see Help:Basic membership properties for detailed explanation). I will fix all your edits in a few minutes, at least for P279; I may leave some P131 to you ;-) Write me if you have any doubts, of course. --Epìdosis 18:01, 14 May 2022 (UTC)
Thank you for the explanation! I'll see the Help page you mention :-). I'll continue to import more data and I'll fix the ones that are already here :-) Best, Soylacarli (talk) 19:17, 14 May 2022 (UTC)

APIEdit

hello again Epì,

The National Library of Israel created NLI API's with international standards for open data. Iwonder if you know how to the reconciliation service test bench. That it can be used in OpenRefine. Geagea (talk) 11:38, 15 May 2022 (UTC)

Hi @Geagea:! Unfortunately I'm not sure I understand the question and I don't think I have the answer, since I've never used personally OpenRefine :( --Epìdosis 13:11, 15 May 2022 (UTC)
Part of the process of using OpenRefine is reconciliation. normally the reconciliation is to WD. But there is an option to use API and make reconciliation with VIAF for example. As the NLI created NLI API's with international standards for open data. It seems that reconciliation can be with NLI. Anyway thanks. Geagea (talk) 18:36, 15 May 2022 (UTC)

Data di nascita e di morteEdit

Ciao, Epìdiosis. Ti volevo segnalare che l'utente Jmax sta eliminando gli estremi anagrafici tra parentesi in varie descrizioni di umani (in inglese, francese, tedesco e anche italiano) perché secondo lui sono fuori standard. Potresti intervenire che io non riesco a ritrovare le discussioni? :)--Alienautic (talk) 18:07, 17 May 2022 (UTC)

Ciao @Alienautic:! La questione generale resta dibattuta: di fatto la discussione più importante e recente a me nota, Wikidata:Project_chat/Archive/2021/12#Should_the_description_of_a_person_include_year_of_birth_and_death,_if_applicable?, ha avuto esito aporetico; quella più piccola che avevo avviato al bar italiano, Wikidata:Bar/Archive/2021/11#Descrizioni_in_italiano_per_elementi_di_persone, invece, si era conclusa con esito positivo all'aggiunta delle date (anche in assenza di ambiguità). La possibilità di autogenerare le descrizioni degli umani (ovviamente anche di altri tipi di elementi) in relazione a occupazione/i + cittadinanza/e + date di nascita e morte potrebbe dare un'ulteriore svolta al problema, o perlomeno invitare le diverse comunità linguistiche di Wikidata a prendere decisioni chiare; tuttavia, penso che non vedremo qualcosa del genere prima di due-tre anni da adesso. Lo status quo mi pare sia: consenso generale (anche di Jmax) che è meglio lasciare le date in caso di omonimi; consenso sul lasciare le date in italiano; dissenso sul resto. --Epìdosis 18:20, 17 May 2022 (UTC)
Quindi come ti comporti quando un utente ti modifica le descrizioni eliminando le date che avevi inserito? Perché noto che continui a inserirle nelle descrizioni en, quindi sarà capitato anche a te. È un gran peccato che non ci sia coordinazione :(--Alienautic (talk) 18:28, 17 May 2022 (UTC)
Anche in tedesco mi era parso ci fosse ultimamente una tendenza a inserirle (col trattino lungo, però). Grazie!--Alienautic (talk) 18:30, 17 May 2022 (UTC)
@Alienautic: Personalmente, non essendoci coordinazione (e concordo sia un peccato), lascio correre in inglese, mentre tendo ad annullare in italiano. --Epìdosis 07:04, 18 May 2022 (UTC)
Ti scoccia se ti taggo nella discussione? Secondo l'utente Jmax nemmeno la discussione tra gli utenti italiani per le descrizioni it è valida, perché è solo una discussione. Tu hai seguito la vicenda dall'inizio e sai sicuaramente argomentare meglio. Ma se non ti va di essere coinvolto lascio perdere. :)--Alienautic (talk) 17:47, 18 May 2022 (UTC)
@Alienautic: Taggami pure, visto che avevo iniziato io quella discussione. --Epìdosis 19:54, 18 May 2022 (UTC)

Merge requestEdit

Hello.

Can you merge the Wikidata page of Teymur Hajiyev (Q99161022) with the Wikidata page of Teymur Hajiyev (Q95911810)? They are about the same filmmaker.

Yours sincerely, 31.200.13.53 23:40, 22 May 2022 (UTC)

Of course,   Done. --Epìdosis 07:02, 23 May 2022 (UTC)

Double first namesEdit

Hi Epìdosis,

do you really think Maria Italia (Q112120254) shall not be represented by Maria (Q325872) and Italia (Q510613)?--Rabattmarkenverein (talk) 13:04, 24 May 2022 (UTC)

Hi @Rabattmarkenverein:! I think that Italian composed names made out of Maria (Q325872) + second name usually deserve an item; however, while it is evident for more common ones (e.g. Maria Annunziata (Q3847124)), I agree it may be questionable for rarer ones like this. It could be worth discussing it in Wikidata talk:WikiProject Names in order to establish clearer guidelines for instance of (P31) double name (Q1243157) in general. --Epìdosis 13:28, 24 May 2022 (UTC)
