Wikidata:Requests for comment/Interwiki links for special pagesEdit

Re point 1: Wasn't the discussion about whether to include Special:RecentChanges? If yes, the outcome should be that there is no consensus for including it rather than for deleting it. Vogone talk 20:32, 4 February 2014 (UTC)

There're are 10 users object to delete it, but only 8 support, so status quo.--GZWDer (talk) 04:11, 5 February 2014 (UTC)
I don't say it needs to be deleted, I just say that the subject of the proposal was a different one. Not a deletion was discussed, but an addition to the inclusion policy. Vogone talk 05:44, 5 February 2014 (UTC)
You voted in this RFC, so you should not have closed it. I will bring this to WD:AN for further review. --Rschen7754 06:38, 5 February 2014 (UTC)
That and Wikidata:Requests for comment/Interwiki links for subpages‎, which you started. In addition to this, your closes were not very well worded and led to several complaints. Please refrain from closing RFCs that you are involved in; I suggest that you refrain from closing them entirely, based on what I have seen here. --Rschen7754 06:46, 5 February 2014 (UTC)

Can you please reply to my concerns, here or at WD:AN? --Rschen7754 06:30, 6 February 2014 (UTC)


Dear GZWDer,

Thank you for your help, the search worked fine and I learned something as well. Gracias. Uruk (talk) 14:05, 9 February 2014 (UTC)

Library of Congress Classification (P1149)Edit

Hi! This property which you proposed has been created.

Architectural structureEdit

Hi, I don't understand this diff : It is concrete designed constructed structure for sure … TomT0m (talk) 13:25, 19 February 2014 (UTC)


Can you move the zh-wiki page of Qunatum GIS to QGIS. The project has changed its name. Links: QGIS (Q1329181) and zh:Quantum_GIS --Tobias1984 (talk) 10:29, 23 February 2014 (UTC)

Please use the preview featureEdit

When editing templates, you can use the small box below the edit box titled "Preview page with this template" to make sure the edit works correctly before saving it. --Yair rand (talk) 11:50, 27 February 2014 (UTC)


Hey GZWDer, I undid the edit to RfD that you page - there were so many requests that I couldn't even load the page! Also, if those are just items from Special:ShortPages or some other maintenance page which you haven't actually identified the merging target or usage, there's no point in listing them, since they are listed on the maintenance pages and they'll be gotten to sometime within the next thousand years. Thanks, Ajraddatz (Talk) 16:40, 28 February 2014 (UTC)

About deletion Q15909332Edit

Property proposalsEdit

Can you please review your property proposals and fill them with the required information. It will make it really hard for less experienced users to understand what you are proposing. It also clutters the property proposal page with a lot of template errors. --Tobias1984 (talk) 16:24, 25 March 2014 (UTC)

About your phone number property proposal.Edit

Would you mind providing an example item and value for this property proposal: Wikidata:Property_proposal/Sister_projects#phone_number_.2F_toll_free_phone_number_.2F_fax_.28en.29? Thanks, --Jakob (talk) 11:47, 7 April 2014 (UTC)

Astlër-Burnet Economic Problem (Q16245832)Edit

I have just deleted this article from en:wp as a probable hoax, certainly unverifiable. I don't believe it existed on any other project - certainly its SPA author had made no other edits anywhere. I don't know whether deletion here will now happen automatically, or whether some action is needed. Regards, JohnCD (talk) 17:25, 14 April 2014 (UTC)

Dispatch IssuesEdit

Hello GZWDer, after a bit of discussion on IRC with @Lydia Pintscher (WMDE):, we noticed dispatch lag is increasing to the point that it is slowly increasing the time taking for changes to be dispatched to projects form Wikidata. You can see the lag at Special:DispatchStats. We are asking you to please stop your flood account as it is starting to add to the amount of disruption across Wikimedia where Wikidata is enabled. If the flooding still occurs after 30 minutes, we may result to stopping the flooding forcefully though we do not really see this as necessary. If you have questions - feel free to poke either one of us. I am watching this page. John F. Lewis (talk) 13:24, 16 April 2014 (UTC)

Just a note - Per Lydia, changed it to 30 minutes due to lag increasing my 10 minutes every minute or two. John F. Lewis (talk) 13:32, 16 April 2014 (UTC)


Hy GZWDer! Thanks, refreshing the language alley reference of the many Hungarian sides and wikidata the connection of an element. :) --Vakondka (talk) 05:23, 23 April 2014 (UTC)

Missing taxon nameEdit

Hi GZWDer, could you add taxon name (P225) to Ruwenzorisorex (Q10811979), Micronycteris (Q10908836) and Megasorex (Q10931380) please? Thanks in advance. --Succu (talk) 11:57, 24 April 2014 (UTC)

removal requestEdit

The Item you recently created should not actually exist, Please remove it. (The meaning of "فهرست کشورهای جهان بر پایه نسبت جنسی جمعیت" in persian exactly means "List of countries by sex ratio".) many thanks,Ms96 (talk) 20:36, 24 April 2014 (UTC)

Proposed wikisEdit

Hello there. This is to say thank you for your support for NonFreeWiki; it is much appreciated. I also liked your detailed suggestions and will try to incoporate them into the proposal. Green Giant (talk) 12:59, 1 May 2014 (UTC)

Creating duplicates unnecessarilyEdit

Please do not use Widar to create empty items for journals like you did with Avian Diseases (Q16836083) dup of Avian Diseases (Q15763142), which had the ISSNs in w:Avian Diseases. You didnt do a title search, and you didnt look at the authority control data on Avian Diseases (Q15763142). I have put a lot of work into removing duplicates, and creating high quality data items for journals. We have items for almost every notable journal. It is extremely unlikely that any major international journal is not already in Wikidata. John Vandenberg (talk) 02:19, 11 May 2014 (UTC)

And another one Q16837792. Are there more? Please help fix them. John Vandenberg (talk) 03:02, 11 May 2014 (UTC)
You can manually merge them, or add links using bot. I don't create items with same links twice.--GZWDer (talk) 03:09, 11 May 2014 (UTC)
That is not a helpful response. It is not possible to create items with the same links twice. I know I can merge them. By creating duplicate items you create work for me. That is not nice. I need to find the duplicates, otherwise my Wikipedia import bots will populate your duplicates instead of telling me that the Wikipedia page is unlinked and needs investigation. Can you help me find the duplicates? What scripts & rules did you use to create these duplicates? Or do I need to do a mass search for duplicates, costing me at least a day of time? John Vandenberg (talk) 03:18, 11 May 2014 (UTC)
Looking at your last fifty edits:
Q16852746 dup of Q941370
Q16852745 dup of Q6152702
Q16852713 dup of Q4556921
Q16852696 dup of Q16239823
Q16852690 dup of Q10779176
In the next fifty edits:
Q16277285 dup of Q1047252
Q16852657 dup of Q3738574
Q16852643 dup of Q12322000
That is 100 edits in 2 minutes, with 8 errors. 8% error rate, or one error every 15 seconds. John Vandenberg (talk) 11:28, 11 May 2014 (UTC)
Your bot permission was for semi-automated edits. The bots edit-rate is way too fast to be semi-automated, and you are obviously not doing any thinking for these edits. I believe that you are not using that account in accordance with the requested activity. If this continues, I will start a request to remove the bot flag as it is being abused. John Vandenberg (talk) 11:28, 11 May 2014 (UTC)
@John Vandenberg: I creates items based on pages without items in a category, or in en:Special:UnconnectedPages. Duplicates can not be prevented. However, I can remove pages which is potentially duplicate, but I'm not able to remove 100% duplicate. Magnus Manske also did it: in [1], more than 60% (or even more) are duplicate and can be merged. So is ‎Jura1 and 분당선M. Even fully automatically bot like InkoBot and Dexbot can create duplicate s. That is just because all these users are bot (automatically or semi-automatically), but not human.--GZWDer (talk) 14:14, 11 May 2014 (UTC)
GZWDer, you didnt ask permission to do fully automatic edits, but that is what you are doing. Please only do semi-automated (i.e. manually reviewed edits), or ask permission for what you want to do. Duplicates can be mostly prevented, and there is NO excuse for creating duplicates when the existing wikidata items have authority control information which is also present in the unconnected page. John Vandenberg (talk) 14:32, 11 May 2014 (UTC) (p.s. I will also look at the other bots. However they are running automated code which is open source, and if there are problems then I can improve their code)
@John Vandenberg: Sorry, this tool does not prevent this. You may ask Magnus Manske to fix it. Note he also created a lot of duplicate items, you can try to merge them.--GZWDer (talk) 14:36, 11 May 2014 (UTC)
You can view an outdated to-do list (I will remove pages whose item was created soon).--GZWDer (talk) 14:39, 11 May 2014 (UTC)
The tool only does what you tell it. If you are not manually reviewing the list of items to create, before sending the list to the creator tool, your bot account does not have permission to automatically create them. If you do not agree, I feel obligated to ask for the bot flag to be reviewed by the community, and I will compile more evidence of you using the bot in fully automated mode without any manual review. John Vandenberg (talk) 15:00, 11 May 2014 (UTC)

You continue to create duplicates with the bot. I found two in your last fifty edits (Q16858976->Q1880113 & Q16858993->Q13461727) with only a very easy search. John Vandenberg (talk) 15:43, 11 May 2014 (UTC)

For the record I found three more journals with proper authority control information which you created a duplicate of:

John Vandenberg (talk) 13:48, 12 May 2014 (UTC)

Hi again, I have done another quick audit, and I am detecting roughly the same % of duplicates, especially because the rate of duplicates of species is approximately 70%. Please do not import any more species. Please review all of the bots new items which have Latin names, as they are almost all duplicates, and merge them appropriately. Please see Wikidata:BN#RobotGMwikt and note that it did loose its bot status for not complying with the WD:bot policy. You are responsible for cleaning up the damage caused by your bot. John Vandenberg (talk) 01:46, 16 May 2014 (UTC)

@GZWDer I think we need to DO NOT CREATE DUPLICATES or very less. I know that there will be some duplicates is possible, but we need to make very less to keep WIDAR work.--DangSunM (talk) 23:08, 16 May 2014 (UTC)


Hi GZWDer,

You might be interested in the proposal at Wikidata:Property_proposal/References#TLS. I noticed (too late) that you had suggested a few other theater related properties. --- Jura 16:17, 19 May 2014 (UTC)


Hi, you said that this movie is a human being. Sincerely, Taketa (talk) 16:38, 24 May 2014 (UTC)


Hi! It seems that you contribute with a bot: "RfD: meet up in only one wiki". Is there any logic on this? gangLeri לערי ריינהארט (talk) 11:31, 2 June 2014 (UTC)

You have not answered the question? What is your problem? לערי ריינהארט (talk) 19:10, 18 July 2014 (UTC)

Stop you bot!Edit

Hi, Please, I ask you to stop your bot to remove P60 (P60) statements! Some of that statements have source information that must be moved to instance of (P31) statements (see this diff. There is an approved request here. Thanks for your job, but at now it is better to stop it, and if is it possible, revert it. --Paperoastro (talk) 15:44, 3 June 2014 (UTC)

While it would be technically possible to recover sources via the 'revisions' API, it requires a completely different technique than using the 'wbgetentities' one. Now, it is up to you to rollback every wrong edit. --Ricordisamoa 11:42, 4 June 2014 (UTC)
@Paperoastro, Ricordisamoa: I can do that by m:User:Hoo_man/smart_rollback.js if need. However, I think claims with only "import from" source like that don't need to be restored. So does items with sourced P31 claims. Help:Sources says, "In some cases the source requirement can be skipped: When a value is common knowledge, and it has not been disputed." What do you think? --GZWDer (talk) 06:01, 5 June 2014 (UTC)
Concerning your link, you are right: we don't need to restore those informations, but other items, like this, contain useful information sourced by stated in (P248) and/or reference URL (P854). I don't know how many they are. I hope there is an automatic way to recover only them. --Paperoastro (talk) 08:45, 5 June 2014 (UTC)
For your last question: it is correct: in most cases "the value is common knowledge, and it has not been disputed". Other cases we need sources because the objects catalogued it is not clear. A table of them is in the pages of NGC task forces. I can recover them manually. --Paperoastro (talk) 10:59, 10 June 2014 (UTC)

Q11063813VS Q15899326Edit

康平镇撤镇建街道,改为胜利街道,原康平镇(直接把原名字改成胜利街道是否优先)数据是否可以继续使用,还是优先使用并完善新建的数据。由于Q15899326声明还是空白,直接引用会不会导致维基百科数据链出问题。需要你的指导。--cfch250 23:02, 17 June 2014 (UTC+8)

不光改了个名字,还添加了一个社区单位,这两个数据是并存还是以后确认后会合并。--cfch250 23:18, 17 June 2014 (UTC+8)



There is a proposal at Wikidata:Property_proposal/Place#Demonym you might be interested.

I noticed you had brought up another proposal for a similarly named property in "Sister projects".

The advantage of the new proposal is that it could be implemented now. --- Jura 10:51, 22 June 2014 (UTC)

Left (Q3556716)Edit

Please tell me there is an easy way for you to undo all of the hard work that you put into making all of those links useless at Left (Q3556716)? 09:23, 23 October 2014 (UTC)


Hallo, hab grade die Botergänzung bei Blankenstein Castle (Q896291) entfernt, weil sie falsch ist. Die Edits scheinen auf deine Anfrage zurückzugehen. Deswegen frag ich dich. Jetzt hab ich mir in diesem Fall Geonames angeguckt, weiß aber nicht woher diese Zuordnungen kommen oder wo Verbesserungen hinzuschreiben sind. Konkret 2948027 "Haltepunkt Blankenstein Burg" ist sowohl falsch auf der Karte plaziert (der Eisenbahn-Haltepunkt liegt ganz woanders, nämlich weiter nördlich in der Nähe der Ruhr) als auch die Verbindung zur Burgruine ist inhaltlich falsch (Geonames sagt "railroad station", linkt aber zum enwiki-Artikel zur Burg, aber Eisenbahnhaltepunkt ist ja nicht gleich Burg, die Burg liegt aufm Berg oberhalb der Ruhr, also auch nicht da wo die Koordinaten für den Haltepunkt stehen). Von Wikipedia/Wikidata scheinen die Koordinateninfos nicht zu kommen, die sind richtig für die Burg. Gesehen hab ich bei Geonames außerdem, dass auch mehrere benachbarte Einträge in der Nähe falsch sind (zB "2948030 Bahnhof Blankenstein" mitten im Wald, noch etwas weiter östlich eingetragen).

Kannst du dir das Mal angucken? Holger1959 (talk) 11:23, 2 November 2014 (UTC)

thank you for the kind reply! and sorry for asking in german, I mixed up your username with an other one :)
for the script link, i had a look but i think its too complicated for me. Do you know a german-speaking Wikidata user who also knows Geonames and maybe can help me if i find similar issues? Holger1959 (talk) 18:14, 2 November 2014 (UTC)


Thank you for the note. The duplicate is removed. --Dcirovic (talk) 17:29, 6 November 2014 (UTC)

Merging itemsEdit
