Administrative områdeEdit

I egenskaben located in the administrative territorial entity (P131) angiver vi kun de nuværende kommuner og regioner, når det er Danmark og ikke sogne.. --Steenth (talk) 19:22, 16 May 2016 (UTC)


@ Hjart,

in my brain, Vesthimmerland is Westlummerland. :) --Ulamm (talk) 15:18, 24 April 2018 (UTC)


Please explain what you are doing.--Ymblanter (talk) 20:36, 7 July 2018 (UTC)

Well, I guess I got a bit confused here. Sorry about that--Hjart (talk) 20:40, 7 July 2018 (UTC)
No problem, thanks.--Ymblanter (talk) 19:40, 8 July 2018 (UTC)


The problem with Gavnø (Q2241226) is that the element is, depend of the wp version, about the island (in French), the castle or both of them (in English). Do you want to clean it or I do it ? Simon Villeneuve (talk) 20:37, 28 September 2018 (UTC)

The danish WP version is about the castle only.--Hjart (talk) 20:41, 28 September 2018 (UTC)

Earth editingEdit

Hej, I am wondering why removing the item not fulfilling property constraint is not okay.

--Fantasticfears (talk) 09:48, 28 January 2019 (UTC)

Sometimes property constraints are not complete and as such are not always valid reasons for removing things.--Hjart (talk) 10:37, 28 January 2019 (UTC)

P131 vs. P159Edit

Hi Hjart, located in the administrative territorial entity (P131) should not be used for organizations, but only for physical objects. The correct property here is headquarters location (P159). Cheers --MB-one (talk) 19:32, 3 February 2019 (UTC)

Royal Oak Golf Club for instance is not just the club. It's also the physical golf course. --Hjart (talk) 19:42, 3 February 2019 (UTC)
I see. In this case, we should consider splitting them up. --MB-one (talk) 19:48, 3 February 2019 (UTC)
To me headquarters location (P159) really only makes sense where the organization is spread over more than 1 site. --Hjart (talk) 20:00, 3 February 2019 (UTC)

Your QuestionEdit

Hello Hjart,

I saw that you asked me in a comment of undoing an edit of me how I got the definition because I have chosen the wrong State. For this batch I made a query and the results where the Items without a German descriptions. A additional information was the state where they are located. I export this as a CSV and in Calc I make VLOOKUP and add for every state the correct localization. Not in every case in German a thing is located in a country there exist other prepositions too. I think that there was a mistake. The cell I have chosen was not in the row of the state you can find in that row. I make a query and look how many of my descriptions are incorrect and correct them. -- Hogü-456 (talk) 17:55, 7 October 2019 (UTC)

Thank you. I edit quite a lot of items, so could you please remind me which item I undid here? --Hjart (talk) 18:09, 7 October 2019 (UTC)
I havent found the item you have undid. I dont know where the signature of my edit came from. I think I told it you a few weeks ago and not in 2019. --Hogü-456 (talk) 20:53, 23 November 2020 (UTC)
I undid a misplaced comment from someone else (which removed most of the text in this section). Sorry that it disturbed you. --Hjart (talk) 20:59, 23 November 2020 (UTC)


Thank you for the hint. I am fine with your revert, but why don't you remove the less accurate coordinates? Greetings, --Giorgio Michele (talk) 14:32, 21 October 2019 (UTC)

Sometimes I remove them, sometimes I don't. Depends on my mood ;-). The older ones are referenced, while those I created from aerial imagery are not. Of course removing them would lessen the risk of less experienced editors removing my set of coordinates, but well, then those editors wouldn't learn about the "preferred" bit ... --Hjart (talk) 14:44, 21 October 2019 (UTC)

Rubjerg Knude lighthouseEdit

Thank you for adding the new correct coordinates: the old ones were not read by the template in the Italian page about the lighthouse (and I was trying to figure out why), now it works correctly :) --Postcrosser (talk) 13:14, 5 November 2019 (UTC)

The new coordinates are a guess. We're told the tower was moved ~70 meters, but not the exact direction. Forgot to add them right away after the event though. Thanks for reminding me ;-) --Hjart (talk) 13:21, 5 November 2019 (UTC)

Rollback flagEdit

Hello, Hjart! I am just letting you know that I have added the rollback flag to your account, as you are a trusted user on Wikidata. If you have any questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to contact me or leave a message at the Project chat.

Sitelink pointing to gallery, rather than categoryEdit

Hello, Hjart. You correctly pointed out that changing the sitelink broke the infobox on the Commons category. However, that's easily fixed by adding a qid parameter (which I've done on the 4 data entries).

Categories in wikidata seem to have their own (separate) items. If there is a gallery and a category over in commons, then the gallery should be associated with the main topic, and the category should be associated with the wikidata item (if it exists). Doesn't that make sense? Hike395 (talk) 21:52, 3 January 2020 (UTC)

Personally I much prefer keeping things simple and most commons galleries are very rarely maintained anyway, so I really prefer commons sitelinks to just point to the categories.--Hjart (talk) 21:56, 3 January 2020 (UTC)
Two points
  1. Generally, wikidata items refer to pages in the same namespace across multiple wikis. Wikidata items that correspond to articles will refer to articles, while items that correspond to categories will refer to categories. When we have a choice between a Commons gallery and a Commons category, mixing up namespaces is less simple (more complex).
  2. I spend a fair amount of time maintaining commons galleries. They do get maintained by other editors, also. So I don't think it's correct to dismiss them.
Hike395 (talk) 22:07, 3 January 2020 (UTC)
I've put a fair amount of effort into i.e. commons:Kastellet myself. I'm not really seeing anyone else in Denmark do that though. --Hjart (talk) 22:12, 3 January 2020 (UTC)
I can see why you would think Commons:Abe Fortas is not a well-maintained gallery: it only has three images with no captions. However, take a look at Commons:Al Hajar Mountains (which I just made this morning). It has descriptive captions, and a selection of images from across the mountain range. Compare that to Commons:Category:Al Hajar Mountains, which has thousands of images of the range, but only 14 at the top level of the category (and those aren't very good). I don't think you can say a brand-new gallery isn't maintained :-).
How about this --- if Danish town galleries aren't well-maintained, how about if we revert the site link for Aabyhøj ? (Although, I'm happy to try to improve Commons:Aabyhøj). Hike395 (talk) 22:42, 3 January 2020 (UTC)
I can see galleries as a means to help make sense of and navigate popular, large and complex category trees. Galleries with 3 images from a category with 5 images is rather pointless though. If you make galleries please make sure they are actually helpfull, rather than a waste of time and effort. --Hjart (talk) 23:00, 3 January 2020 (UTC)
I agree that 3 images out of 5 is pointless. Of course, I would claim that a 5-image category is also pointless and shouldn't have been made --- which gallery/category are you referring to? Hike395 (talk) 23:03, 3 January 2020 (UTC)
Categories are our only practical means of grouping files together. That's why 5- or even 2-image categories often actually do make good sense. When I go to Commons though, I often do it to see which new images may be found in a particular category. I find it rather annoying to have to click through galleries, that wasn't updated for 12 years. Please don't create galleries just for the sake of it. --Hjart (talk) 16:52, 4 January 2020 (UTC)

Udenlandsk navn som aliasEdit

Hej Hjart, jeg forstår ikke begrundelsen for, at du har fjernet det polske navn som alias her. Det er helt almindelig praksis at have et navn på landets eget sprog stående som alias i de tilfælde, hvor der bruges en dansk oversættelse som navn; se f.eks. den polske borgerplatform eller det svenske socialdemokrati. Mvh. SorenRK (talk) 20:05, 23 March 2020 (UTC)

Det er muligt det er "almindeligt", men jeg er efterhånden kommet dertil at jeg i mange tilfælde finder det misvisende. Desuden er det ved søgninger tilstrækkeligt at navnet optræder på originalsproget. --Hjart (talk) 20:10, 23 March 2020 (UTC)

Huldremose WomanEdit

Hello! This item: Huldremose Woman (Q467748) your edition results: An entity should not have a statement for coordinate location if it also has a statement for instance of with value human. See: Wikidata:Database_reports/Constraint_violations/P735#"Conflicts_with_földrajzi_koordináta_(P625)"_violations.

Please correct it:

Thank you Palotabarát (talk)

Your changes caused the coordinates to disappear from the danish Wp, so I will recommend leaving it as is. Please note that this is not a live human being. Hjart (talk) 10:26, 28 March 2020 (UTC)

The coodinate data does not appear here either: Ötzi (Q171291) da:Ötzi. Option: infobox. The data in wikidata is incorrect and needs to be corrected. Palotabarát (talk) 12:07, 28 March 2020 (UTC)

Q803409 HaderslevbanenEdit


Would it be okay if I add 'instance of: railway line' back, but with a temporal modifier 'until January 1, 2001' and similarly add modifier 'from July 13, 2011 ' to the statement 'instance of: heritage railway'?

--Lnkvt (talk) 19:51, 15 April 2020 (UTC)

I would be okay with that. --Hjart (talk) 19:56, 15 April 2020 (UTC)
Is it to ease queries?

Reverting of dataEdit

Hi ~~Hjart~~, I can see that you have reverted the birth date of Erika F. Christensen, as there is no evidence available in terms of her birth date and I only know of her birth year, I would appreciate it if you removed the day and month of birth, as I would not like to have incorrect information on a page I have created. If you find proof, however, I would like to have a link to that source. Kind Regards, ~~Randeris4~~

Ok, jeg havde tidligere redigeret wikidata efter de data du havde angivet på Wikipedia og troede det var en fejltagelse at du helt slettede både dato og år. --Hjart (talk) 13:40, 5 May 2020 (UTC)

Hjerting KirkeEdit

Jeg kiggede på Hjerting Church (Q12316917) - du har ændret den fra en flertydig til kirken i Esbjerg. Den kirke var oprindelig på Hjerting Church (Q12316919). Hvad sker der. Jeg så helst at man ikke flytter rundt på den slags. --Steenth (talk) 20:31, 1 June 2020 (UTC)

Genre ontologyEdit

Ok, I'll buy most of your changes to my poster (Q429785) edits as desirable, except that I disagree with making poster a subclass of (P279) rather than an instance of (P31) art genre. To me that's a different level of abstraction, as you can't subdivide the property of "genre" into even smaller properties any more than you can subdivide the identity of the artist into even smaller identities!

But as I'm not really into the topic of art, I decided to do some analysis, and I found that you are actually quite in line with the majority - which I believe is just as wrong!

Now, I'm not going to lose any sleep over this; there is plenty of confusion elsewhere in Wikidata to tinker with, and the only reason I edited the poster properties was that I didn't want to see it as a direct subclass of object (Q488383), alongside the Universe, Nth-order metaclasses, the notion of God, and the very roots of existentiality and conceptuality themselves. Some company of a mundane poster, I'd say... :-)

As you may have noticed when browsing my edit history (I bet that's why you found the dog beach item and added a Danish label to it), I have only been here for a few weeks, but I'm kind of hooked, not only on a hookworm! Haven't got into lexemes yet, but that's probably a good way to become polyglot (didn't indicate either Danish or Norwegian in my Babelbox even as I do understand either reasonably well in writing; det er jo netopp samme sprog som svensk)! --SM5POR (talk) 20:58, 15 June 2020 (UTC)

You're right as to the art genre and I've changed it back. I've edited Wikidata for years now (mostly fairly basic stuff though) and I still get confused now and then. In this case I didn't pay enough attention to what I doing. Thanks for pointing it out.

Yes, I regularly check out the edit histories of other people, to get an idea of their level of experience and sometimes I find stuff that I can correct or expand a bit on :-) --Hjart (talk) 17:04, 16 June 2020 (UTC)

Odd property valuesEdit

I have recently been working on some topographic features, such as highest point (P610), which turned out to be a little complicated for Sweden (Q34), where the identification of this point has shifted between two peaks as ice and snow has accumulated or ablated on either of them throughout the 20th century (and I'm not sure I can trust the accuracy of some measurements made in the 1920s as stated in an old encyclopedia on my bookshelf).

Then I had a look at my home town of Uppsala (Q25286) and saw that somebody had (incorrectly) stated our local skiing hill to be 60 metres (Q246681) (the real height is 42 metres). But hey, there was something odd about that value, as it was actually an item, not a numeric quantity! The unit was correct (metres), but the direction (horizontal instead of vertical) was not... Funny, but I corrected the statement and launched a query searching for similar statements elsewhere.

And I found the Danish island of Funen (Q26503) with a highest point (P610) of 138 (Q30652).

That's not a height either. That's a year...

Reviewing the item history, I think I understand what you tried to do, as you had simultaneously deleted a statement giving the elevation above sea level (P2044) as 38 metres. I don't know what that value came from, and I think it had been added by a robot a few years ago, but one guess I had was that it could be an average elevation for the entire island. Do you have some other explanation? It might actually be interesting to have both maximum and average elevation values for a number of territories in order to obtain some statistics on human settlements, but I need a detailed elevation data set to calculate those values automatically.

Anyway, to make a correct claim I looked up the Danish counterpart to Lantmäteriet (Q845497), and ... well, you can call me impressed! The sdfekort.dk map browser outperforms anything I have seen of that kind so far. So, besides fixing the Funen (Q26503) statement, I also looked up and pinned down Møllehøj (Q689106) in the same manner. And Lammefjord (Q1801605). But wait, I had just disregarded Yding Skovhøj (Q529888) for being man-made (artificial), and what is Lammefjord (Q1801605) if not man-made..? --SM5POR (talk) 20:32, 6 July 2020 (UTC)

megalith (Q164240) as monumentEdit


Obviously I don't agree with your change for megalith (Q164240). I have several instances from an heritage government agency cataloging megalith as monuments. Also this change violates Guía Digital del Patrimonio Cultural de Andalucía identifier (P3318) propertys (link).

Reversion on Aastrup (Q2084176)Edit

Hello, recently you reverted an edit on item Q2084176 here. I just simply want to ask why? It's being done by script. If I did anything wrong please explain. Thanks. ~ A. Shohag (pingme||Talk) 07:28, 29 August 2020 (UTC)

@ShohagS:Please note that Aastrup (Q2084176) is a Wikimedia disambiguation page (Q4167410) (it's the name of 5 different places in Denmark) and as such adding coords makes no sense here. --Hjart (talk) 07:32, 29 August 2020 (UTC)
So, in a particular way, Its a limitation of the script. This needs to be fixed in the source code. Can you report an error regarding this? Thanks. ~ A. Shohag (pingme||Talk) 07:36, 29 August 2020 (UTC)
And one more thing, the script might do the same edit once again, I mean I run or somebody else run it. ~ A. Shohag (pingme||Talk) 07:38, 29 August 2020 (UTC)
@ShohagS: What script? I only see your username. Also I think you are responsible for any script you're running. Also please note that you should not add continent (P30) to people (like i.e. Paul Abasolo (Q2750812)) and particularly not when do not even live in that continent. --Hjart (talk) 07:44, 29 August 2020 (UTC)
Yes, I am responsible for doing those but I am talking about coordinate_import script written in python. ~ A. Shohag (pingme||Talk) 07:49, 29 August 2020 (UTC)
@ShohagS: What about that script? Is it one of those adding stupid precision values to coord sets? --Hjart (talk) 07:54, 29 August 2020 (UTC)
@ShohagS: Please stop your scripts immediately. You should not add coords to people (like Christine Abrahams (Q5110900)) --Hjart (talk) 08:03, 29 August 2020 (UTC)
Thanks, I already did actually. There was an mistake of mine understanding item. ~ A. Shohag (pingme||Talk) 08:05, 29 August 2020 (UTC)

Thx a lotEdit

Many thanks for your escalation. Let me tell you, that in Germany we have a usual customs called manners. One of these is to wait what somebody has to say before any escalation. Have a nice day. --Derzno (talk) 15:10, 4 September 2020 (UTC)

@Derzno: Your replies to User:Jura1 didn't exactly look like any sort of "manners", which was why I chose to "escalate" it immediately. I do mistakes too when using Quickstatements, but luckily on a much less serious scale. Please be more carefull with tools like that. --Hjart (talk) 15:24, 4 September 2020 (UTC)
Another manner say, don’t interfere in subjects if you are not involved into or impacted from. Or did I'd missed something and possibly you're the advocate from Jura? I’ll guess he is tough and experienced enough to act by himself. Such things like this makes me laughing and are not in line with a discussion culture. If you come up with a 2 weeks old change as urgent and hide afterward with arguments and pointing to somebody else. I don’t know your role in this game and don’t want to know. It’s up to you whatever you supposed to do. Better for you and me that our ways do not cross anymore. --Derzno (talk) 05:16, 5 September 2020 (UTC)


Re [1] and [2], the issue I'm trying to resolve is whether en:Category:Tjøme should link to commons:Category:Tjøme. Both enwp and commons seem to be about the former municipality, not the island. Can you provide some more insight, and/or update the enwp link please? Thanks. Mike Peel (talk) 20:12, 4 November 2020 (UTC)

@Mike Peel: The english page says " is an island in Færder, and a former municipality", which I think matches the current situation well. To me both enwp and commons appears to be primarily about the island. I was thinking having commons:Category:Tjøme link to the island would be more appropriate now. --Hjart (talk) 20:22, 4 November 2020 (UTC)
OK. Do the other sitelinks at Category:Tjøme (Q9141446) also focus on the island? If so, maybe we can just update the topic's main category (P910)/category's main topic (P301) values to point to the island, and forget about Tjøme (Q48687). Thanks. Mike Peel (talk) 20:24, 4 November 2020 (UTC)
@Mike Peel: You're right. Apart from the subcat no:Kategori:Tjøme kommune all the sitelinks could be moved without issues. --Hjart (talk) 20:30, 4 November 2020 (UTC)
OK, I created Category:Tjøme (Q101158047) and moved the existing category sitelinks to it, the nowiki one wasn't linked so I just added it to Category:Tjøme (Q9141446). Does that all look OK? Thanks. Mike Peel (talk) 20:35, 4 November 2020 (UTC)
@Mike Peel: Looks good to me. Thanks a lot. I tried to deprecate the former municipality in Tjøme (Q33083355), so it wouldn't mess up the Commons infobox, but it was reverted. Could the infobox ignore any located in the administrative territorial entity (P131) with a end time (P582) qualifiers instead? --Hjart (talk) 20:48, 4 November 2020 (UTC)
I removed the Commons category (P373) value from Tjøme (Q33083355), that should fix it. Thanks. Mike Peel (talk) 20:53, 4 November 2020 (UTC)
@Mike Peel: Unfortunately, it didn't fix it. --Hjart (talk) 20:58, 4 November 2020 (UTC)
I poked commons:Category:Tjøme (removing a template whose content is in the infobox), it looks OK to me now? But it could do with a image (P18) value. Thanks. Mike Peel (talk) 21:05, 4 November 2020 (UTC)
@Mike Peel: I want the "tjørne" to disappear from the "Tjøme, Færder, Norway" line in the infobox. It disappeared when I deprecated the old municipality, but came back when my change was reverted in https://www.wikidata.org/w/index.php?title=Q33083355&oldid=1302671691. --Hjart (talk) 21:33, 4 November 2020 (UTC)

Nolde-House, SeebüllEdit

Please do not revert my changes to the separate entries for Nolde-Haus (building) and Nolde-Stiftung (institution). --Arch2all (talk) 13:48, 2 December 2020 (UTC)

If you think, that the Danish and Swedish wikipedia entries to Nolde museum refer better to the building than the museum institution You have to connect this WP entries to the wikidata building entry. --Arch2all (talk) 13:54, 2 December 2020 (UTC)
@Arch2all: I've worked on this place several times over the last few years. The commons category covers the the piece of land including the garden and a few other buildings on which the artists house is situated. Maybe the german article should be split into a 3. wikidata item. And sorry, I got a little bit confused in the process --Hjart (talk) 14:00, 2 December 2020 (UTC)
There is a semantic difference between a museum as institution and the building where the museum is located. Often both is covered by one wikidata entry, but if there are separate wikidata entries the correct way to define the relation is the way I practiced for Nolde museum. So, please do not revert again! If the relating Wikipedia articles mix building and institution, it's NOT a reason to change the wikidata entries. --Arch2all (talk) 14:25, 2 December 2020 (UTC)
It should be noted here that the Nolde house is just a part of the physical museum, which consists of a few other buildings around it too. --Hjart (talk) 18:00, 2 December 2020 (UTC)


Vognmagergades navn kommer ikke vognmager, som man skulle tro, men af vognmand:

"Navnet kendes siden 1568 (Wogendmand gade) og indtil anden halvdel af 1700-tallet i former, der viser, at forleddet er en ældre flertalsform af subst. vognmand. Det vides ikke, på hvilken måde vognmænd har haft forbindelse med denne gade. Sidst i 1700-tallet (tidligst 1764 Vogenmager Gade) ændres navnet vilkårligt efter de talrige erhvervsbetegnelser på -mager, sikkert ikke mindst inspireret af den nærliggende Købmagergade, hvor -mager allerede tidligere var blevet resultatet af en vilkårlig udvikling af -manger." (Storbyens Stednavne, s. 329. Gyldendal, 1999)

I det hele taget gælder, at gadenavnene i Middelalderbyen har ændret sig en del i løbet af århundrederne, ligesom der i flere tilfælde ligger historier bag, der ikke er indlysende i dag. Gadenavnene blev først faste i slutningen af 1700-tallet, da det blev bestemt, at de skulle males på gadehjørnerne. --Dannebrog Spy (talk) 12:18, 16 January 2021 (UTC)

Danske bogstaver i SPARQL-variabelnavneEdit

Hej Hjart. Jeg så SPARQL-forespørglerne som du har på din brugerside, og bemærkede at du bruger "_" i stedet danske bogstaver som "ø" i for eksempel "køn". Da du måske ikke ved det, vil jeg lige gøre opmærksom på at bogstaver på alle sprog, inkl. dansk, gerne må bruges i navne i SPARQL. Hvis du i øvrigt skulle få for hjælp med SPARQL-forespørgler, hjælper jeg gerne. Jeg har besvaret mange spørgsmål i Wikidata:Request a query‎.

Ja, det kan jeg forestille mig. Der er over 1000 aner til Steen Brahe (Q3430228) over 1000 år tilbage, og 46 efterkommere frem til nutiden. Det vil blive helt uoverskueligt, og ville nok være svært at gennemføre uden timeout, hvis andre slægtninge (som søskende, efterkommere af aner, aner til efterkommere etc.) udover disse skulle medtages, i hvert fald hvis man ikke laver begrænsninger om hvor nært beslægtede de fundne personer skal være til den person søgningen starter fra.

Anton MichelsenEdit

Hi, I merged Anton Michelsen Anton Michelsen (Q102407307) and Anton Michelsen (Q97961753) as ULAN of that one directs to Cleveland Museum. They have a vase https://www.clevelandart.org/art/2001.94 made by the firm of 'Anton Michelsen' from 1900, made by Thorvald Bindesbøll. So 'floruit 1900' in ULAN is based on the production date of that vase. --Hannolans (talk) 10:11, 30 January 2021 (UTC)

Ok, thanks for that info. I had been looking at those 2 before and indeed wondered about them, but based on the info I could find, could only conclude that somehow, there had been 2 silversmiths by the same name. --Hjart (talk) 10:16, 30 January 2021 (UTC)
The Anton Michelsen who died i 1877 cannot be active in 1900. This book in Danish from 1909 might help with who is who. --Dipsacus fullonum (talk) 22:26, 30 January 2021 (UTC)


… then please remove the less accurate coordinates. Thanks. Giorgio Michele (talk) 13:47, 8 February 2021 (UTC)

Why? They are referenced from an official database. There's no harm in having both sets as long as one is ranked higher than the other as is the case here. Hjart (talk) 13:50, 8 February 2021 (UTC)
Thanks for the info. I just did not know that there is no problem with various location data. Giorgio Michele (talk) 13:53, 8 February 2021 (UTC)
There isn't necessarily a problem. Just make sure that the best set is ranked higher than the rest. Also I'm personally fairly familiar with this particular bridge, so I'm fairly sure which set is the better. Hjart (talk) 13:59, 8 February 2021 (UTC)

Helligsø-Gettrup SognEdit

Jeg kan se, at du har oprettet Købelev-Vindeby Parish (Q102819854). Sognet er oprettet i november 2020. Hvor har du læst om oprettelsen af dette sogn? Jeg har nemlig selv lige oprettet Helligsø-Gettrup Parish (Q105410568), der tilsyneladende er en sammenlægning af Helligsø Parish (Q2681447) og Gettrup Parish (Q2149555), men jeg har søgt forgæves efter omtale af, hvornår det er sket. Har du en god kilde til den slags? --C960657 (talk) 16:24, 9 February 2021 (UTC)

Jeg læste om det på den tilhørende artikel på dawiki, som umiddelbart inden blev oprettet af "Kort til kirken". Der kan jeg dog nu se at der heller ingen kildehenvisninger er, men måske det kan betale sig at spørge ham. --Hjart (talk) 16:38, 9 February 2021 (UTC)
Ok, tak. Jeg prøver at spørge ham. --C960657 (talk) 21:22, 9 February 2021 (UTC)

[WMF Board of Trustees - Call for feedback: Community Board seats] Meetings with the Wikidata communityEdit

The Wikimedia Foundation Board of Trustees is organizing a call for feedback about community selection processes between February 1 and March 14. While the Wikimedia Foundation and the movement have grown about five times in the past ten years, the Board’s structure and processes have remained basically the same. As the Board is designed today, we have a problem of capacity, performance, and lack of representation of the movement’s diversity. Our current processes to select individual volunteer and affiliate seats have some limitations. Direct elections tend to favor candidates from the leading language communities, regardless of how relevant their skills and experience might be in serving as a Board member, or contributing to the ability of the Board to perform its specific responsibilities. It is also a fact that the current processes have favored volunteers from North America and Western Europe. In the upcoming months, we need to renew three community seats and appoint three more community members in the new seats. This call for feedback is to see what processes can we all collaboratively design to promote and choose candidates that represent our movement and are prepared with the experience, skills, and insight to perform as trustees?

In this regard, two rounds of feedback meetings are being hosted to collect feedback from the Wikidata community. Two rounds are being hosted with the same agenda, to accomodate people from various time zones across the globe. We will be discussing ideas proposed by the Board and the community to address the above mentioned problems. Please sign-up according to whatever is most comfortable to you. You are welcome to participate in both as well!

Also, please share this with other volunteers who might be interested in this. Let me know if you have any questions. KCVelaga (WMF), 14:32, 21 February 2021 (UTC)

Incorrect dateEdit

Hi Hjart! I see you reverted this edit. Note that the date of birth is incorrect. Some users think that birthdays (date without years) can be entered as date of birth. But that's not the case. The value of date of birth on this item is currently September of year 8 (not September 8th). I'll remove the property again. If you have the correct value, you can add it, possibly setting the precision parameters if the exact date is not known. Thank you! --MarioGom (talk) 17:42, 24 February 2021 (UTC)

Description batches with birth yearsEdit

You should refine your software code a little bit, because in a lot of the birth dates the is the qualificator sourcing circumstances circa. See for instance Q73793276 or Q79119501. For the first case there must be dansk badmintonspiller, født ca. 1972 (or similar) as description. --Florentyna (talk) 07:12, 21 March 2021 (UTC)

What I did was run the query
SELECT ?badmintonspiller ?badmintonspillerLabel ?badmintonspillerDescription ?f_dselsdato ?d_dsdato WHERE {
   SERVICE wikibase:label { bd:serviceParam wikibase:language "[AUTO_LANGUAGE],en". }
   ?badmintonspiller wdt:P106 wd:Q13141064;     wdt:P27 wd:Q35.
   OPTIONAL { ?badmintonspiller wdt:P569 ?f_dselsdato. }
   OPTIONAL { ?badmintonspiller wdt:P570 ?d_dsdato. } }
 LIMIT 10000
Try it!
download the result as .tsv and run it through a fairly simple awk script to produce those descriptions. I wasn't aware that birthdays of that many badminton players would be estimates only. I'm obviously still learning. Thank you for your feedback. --Hjart (talk) 07:48, 21 March 2021 (UTC)

Ruth HosekræmmerEdit

Artiklen på den danske Wikipedia om Ruth Hosekræmmer er slettet, da kvinden efter al sandsynlighed aldrig har eksisteret. Jeg kan ikke finde ud af, hvordan man sletter det tilhørende Wikidata-leksem (som det tilsyneladende kaldes), så jeg vil høre dig, om du kan hjælpe med den opgave? Thomas Vedelsbøl (talk) 13:30, 31 March 2021 (UTC)

@Thomas Vedelsbøl: Jeg har en "request deletion" under "Mere" i værktøjsbjælken øverst på siden. --Hjart (talk) 13:54, 31 March 2021 (UTC)
Det har jeg tilsyneladende ikke. Kan jeg få dig til at anmode om sletning? Thomas Vedelsbøl (talk) 14:20, 31 March 2021 (UTC)
@Thomas Vedelsbøl:   Gjort Det viser sig at knappen skyldes en "gadget" jeg på et tidspunkt har aktiveret, glemt alt om og ikke brugt før nu.--Hjart (talk) 14:59, 31 March 2021 (UTC)

Kalvebodbroerne (Q106541978)Edit

Why are you reverting my edits? I'm just trying to merge two objects. --Voyager (talk) 07:14, 20 April 2021 (UTC)

They should not be merged. Please note that I'm fairly familiar with those bridges. --Hjart (talk) 07:16, 20 April 2021 (UTC)
Aren't they the same? If I compare the German and Danish article, they seem to describe exactly the same bridge. Built from 1982 to 1987, connecting Sjaelland to Amager. Even the coordinates match. --Voyager (talk) 07:20, 20 April 2021 (UTC)
I admit it's fairly easy to get confused here, but no, they are not the same. The danish article is about the combined connection consisting of the 2 bridges Sorterendebroen (Q106537809) and Q106541978, while the german article specifically is about the eastern bridge Q106541978. The combined link is commonly named the same as the eastern bridge.--Hjart (talk) 07:26, 20 April 2021 (UTC)
Please note that dewiki also has an article about Sorterendebroen (Q106537809).--Hjart (talk) 07:29, 20 April 2021 (UTC)

Call for participation in the interview study with Wikidata editorsEdit

Dear Hjart,

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 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 using the email mentioned above if you have any questions or require more information about this project.

Thank you for considering taking part in this research.



Beskrivelse af kirkerEdit

Hej. Jeg har et problem med at du har fjernet kommune fra beskrivelse af kirker. Jeg bruger det til at tjekke om jeg har ramt den rigtige kirke ved søgning.. Det er håbløst, når det fx flertydig stednavn. Og jeg kender hellere placering ikke alle småbyer i Danmark.... Så jeg vil gerne kommunenavn, så jeg ved hvor i landet hvor kirken er. --Steenth (talk) 20:06, 8 August 2021 (UTC)

@Steenth:Jeg har så vidt jeg husker ikke fjernet nogen kommuner fra kirkebeskrivelser, men blot udfyldt danske beskrivelser. Det er muligt jeg i enkelte tilfælde har gjordt det, da jeg har forsøgt mig med en del forskellige måder at lave beskrivelser. Nu foretrækker jeg generelt at angive landsdel eller lidt større byer alt efter hvad der giver bedst mening, fremfor kommune, så jeg håber vi kan finde et kompromis.
Du er iøvrigt velkommen til at forsøge dig med nedenstående script:

#!/bin/bash #Bash script, der finder alle danske kirker med ikke-unikke navne #Kræver wikibase.cli (https://www.wikidata.org/wiki/Wikidata:Tools/WikibaseJS-cli) IFS= read -r -d '' wdquery << SPARQL SELECT ?kirke ?kirkeLabel ?kirkeDescription WHERE { SERVICE wikibase:label { bd:serviceParam wikibase:language "da". } ?kirke wdt:P31 wd:Q16970. ?kirke wdt:P17 wd:Q35. } SPARQL wb sparql -f csv <(echo $wdquery) | sed '1d; s|http.*entity/||' | sort -k2 -t, | awk -F, 'a[$2]++{ if(a[$2]==2){ print b }; print $0}; {b=$0}'


Hello. I’m not sure why you thought this was harassment. If you look at these edits, you will see that User:Ulflarsen was quite aware of this category. He had used it to categorise his collection of amateur videos, but these were deleted at various deletion requests such as c:Commons:Deletion requests/Files in Category:Ulf Larsen. At no point was Ulf Larsen harassed by this category or the Wikidata item. Please withdraw your request and ask for the item to be undeleted. Alternatively, if @MisterSynergy: sees this first, please Undelete this erroneous request. @Ulflarsen: too if he is still active. FredWalsh (talk) 17:58, 23 August 2021 (UTC)

Seeing this first:
  • I deleted the item since it does not meet the notability requirements, as indicated in the deletion summary. Harassment did not play a role for the deletion decision.
  • There is also a severe BLP issue. None of the claims were properly equipped with references, and I don't think there is much to expect. User-generated content from Commons is not sufficient here, and it does not matter that the subject himself had edited the item before.
So, you need to indicate first based on which serious sources we can set up this item here before we can even consider to undelete it. —MisterSynergy (talk) 19:50, 23 August 2021 (UTC)
@MisterSynergy: thank you for the response. My only concern was that User:Hjart's assertion of harassment was not the actual reason for deletion. I agree with deletion on your reasoning. FredWalsh (talk) 22:03, 23 August 2021 (UTC)


Hello Hjart, you have reverted the Wikidata Infobox on the IMO-page of above ship by replacing the IMO number by the ship name. This is not correct. As far as I understood the pages, the Infobox on the IMO-page shall be independent of the ship name, as the latter can change several times during the ship's life. Therefore, the IMO number is given as identifyer, which does not change under different ship names. On the other hand, the ship category (Skjoldnaes, ship ...) with its Infobox is labeled with the ship name, however, referencing to the a.m. Infobox so that data have to be changed or inserted only once.

I know that several infoboxes still do not follow this rule, however it is the logical way and I ask you to follow this also.--Wolfgang Fricke (talk) 07:45, 28 August 2021 (UTC)

@Wolfgang Fricke: Please note that the item Skjoldnæs (Q12325488) was originally named after the danish wikipedia article. It's not an IMO page. Also I think the Commons IMO categories makes linking wp ship articles with their Commons categories horribly unintuitive.--Hjart (talk) 07:55, 28 August 2021 (UTC)
Sorry, Hjart, I do not agree. Even if the Infobox on the IMO-Wikimedia page gets the label with IMO number, there will be an Infobox on the Skjoldnaes-Wikimedia-page having the ship name in the label, and the link to the Danish Wikipedia page is still there. Of course, in case of this ship there is (up to now) only one ship name, but problems arise in case of more than one name, as outlined above.--Wolfgang Fricke (talk) 14:45, 28 August 2021 (UTC)
The query:
SELECT ?f_rge ?f_rgeLabel ?f_rgeDescription WHERE {
   SERVICE wikibase:label { bd:serviceParam wikibase:language "[AUTO_LANGUAGE],en". }
   ?f_rge wdt:P31 wd:Q25653.
   ?f_rge wdt:P8047 wd:Q35. }
Try it!
finds a number of danish ferries. The usefullnes of queries like this depends on the wikidata labels being recognizable by humans. IMO numbers as labels makes it completely useless. IMO numbers as labels is basically bad practice. Don't do it.--Hjart (talk) 15:02, 28 August 2021 (UTC)

A. J. CroceEdit

Hi, not sure if your edit at Q4647901 makes sense. Since the subject is primarily known as "A. J.", it makes sense for him to be sorted under that name instead of his birthname (which is already captured in the birthname parameter). For the timebeing, I think I'm going to use "A. J." as his primary name and rank the birth names lower. Ytoyoda (talk) 12:33, 31 August 2021 (UTC)

@Ytoyoda: "Adrian James" are his actual given names, right? I've ranked them back to normal, since they don't appear to be wrong at all.--Hjart (talk) 12:42, 31 August 2021 (UTC)
I think that's fine - it just didn't make sense for "Adrian" and "James" to be ranked higher than the COMMONNAME. Thanks. Ytoyoda (talk) 12:45, 31 August 2021 (UTC)
@Ytoyoda: Do you mean sorted over at Commons BTW?--Hjart (talk) 12:47, 31 August 2021 (UTC)
Yes, I was mostly concerned with the category sorting on Commons. Ytoyoda (talk) 12:48, 31 August 2021 (UTC)
@Ytoyoda: Ok, then I'll recommend using the Commons DEFAULTSORT template and remove the A.J. here. --Hjart (talk) 12:51, 31 August 2021 (UTC)

Revert on Q1194Edit

Hi, you just reverted my edit on this entity. Is there something I'm missing? I simply tried making it more like other federal states of Germany, such as Q980. Q183 also has for inception the date 3 October 1990, so how could a date from 1949 be correct? --NegativeMemory (talk) 13:54, 15 September 2021 (UTC)

@NegativeMemory: Hmm.. you could be right. I just thought it would be superfluous and basically just duplicating country (P17) but I see that other similar regions have the same.--Hjart (talk) 14:23, 15 September 2021 (UTC)


Hi! Wrong part of that edition was a weird misclick on my phone, not a vandalism (I don't know how it even happened), other one about ColoQuick was a good edition. 99kerob (talk) 20:41, 18 September 2021 (UTC)

@99kerob:Your edits did appear a little weird to me. Someone else did one case of obvious vandalism in between your edits though and so I thought I'd better roll the entire group back. Sorry about that.--Hjart (talk) 04:21, 19 September 2021 (UTC)

Var Altona dansk?Edit

Hej Hjart, nu har jeg forstået det der med Template:Coord wd i Wikipedia arktiklen om Altona, mange tak for korrektur!

Jeg har lavet nogle ændringsforslag i Altona, gider du at kigge på dem? På forhånd mange tak! Mvh Pod-o-mart (talk) 02:00, 25 September 2021 (UTC)


Hej. Jeg er ikke specielt glad du rullede min ændring på Svanemøllen (Q12337848). Jeg har kigget på artikelteksten og der der er mest en artikel om møllen og mindre grad om kvarteret. Og når jeg kigger på kategorier, så peger det på mølleren og ikke på kategorier. Og jeg har en interesse i at få en liste over møller. Så der er ide med det. Og ellers burde du spørge først istedet for at rulle tilbage. Der kan godt være en mening med hvad jeg gør. --Steenth (talk) 15:01, 7 October 2021 (UTC)

Jeg kiggede også på artiklen og for mig at se nævnes møllen nærmest kun som en bisætning. Artiklen overordnet set handler om det nuværende kvarter.--Hjart (talk) 15:03, 7 October 2021 (UTC)
Hvert Wikidata-emne bør entydigt være om én ting. Det giver noget rod at sige at noget både er et kvarter og en mølle, for så ved man ikke hvilken ting de andre sætninger dækker over. Der bør i stedet oprettes et nyt emne til den nedrevne mølle hvor man kan anføre opførelsesdato, arkitekt, størrelse osv. uden at det kan forveksles med bydelen. Så jeg er enig med Hjart her. Dipsacus fullonum (talk) 20:14, 7 October 2021 (UTC)

@Katikei: I think your changes in these 2 cases are really bad choices. Reading the danish articles it's clear to me that the places and article are too closely linked to be separated like that.--Hjart (talk) 05:39, 8 November 2021 (UTC)
