Mixnmatch doesn't contain video game only actors?

Please use numerical IDs for musik-sammler.de artist ID (P9965), not strings.

[soweego 2] MusicBrainz (Q14005) URLs validation: alphabetical IDs found in MusicBrainz (Q14005), but Wikidata doesn't expect them for some reason

Hi there, this SPARQL query returns all musik sammler IDs with alphabetical strings uploaded by the soweego bot. I deleted them.

Just noticed this in my watchlist. Starting to fix a bunch and re-adding with numeric ID. will take a while though. ~~~~

Hi there. Just so you know I deeply regret the comments I made on the stream the other day. I didn't think it through, was a bit stressed, long story short: I am sorry, I shouldn't have said what I said and in that forum. I think Soweego is super interesting project, but as a music editor I have noticed some common mistakes it makes a lot of and it leads to problems with Mix'n'Match catalogs etc.

I hope you accept my apology and that maybe we can start over. At the end of the day we both like Elvis, so maybe there's some common ground?

Please don't uncritically add Youtube videos found on Discogs to bands and people items

Summary by Hjfocs

[soweego 2] Discogs (Q504063) URLs validation: 71 out of 527k IDs that might be controversial, although at least 10 are supported by another user. No action

Moebeus (talkcontribs)

All these videos for songs and album rips don't belong on the artists, they belong on the releases.

Hjfocs (talkcontribs)

Thanks for the report, even though I'd appreciate at least an example and some more details. This SPARQL query shows all the 71 YouTube video IDs found in Discogs by the soweego bot. I checked the first ten results: all of them have an ID that was also found by another user, thus leading to two reference nodes. This actually sounds to me like a promising signal: more than one user finding the same ID with different mechanisms from different sources.

That said, I'd like to highlight that the soweego bot added roughly 527k identifier statements in total, so it's quite expected that 71 might be uncritical :-)

Please don't add IPI numbers to IPI base code (P3453)

Moebeus (talkcontribs)

IPI numbers belong in P1828 (IPI name number) except for some extremely rare cases that is likely outside the scope of your bot.

Hjfocs (talkcontribs)

Thanks for the report, although some context and examples would certainly help. I tried with this SPARQL query, but it looks like no such IDs were added by the soweego bot. Have you already taken care of that?

The bot adds bad Facebook IDs because the url matching is too simplistic, e.g. "pages" is not a valid FB user name but a reference to a FB page.

Hjfocs (talkcontribs)

Hello there, not sure what you exactly mean. This SPARQL query returns Facebook IDs containing the substring pages found in MusicBrainz by the soweego bot, while this one displays the same from Discogs. I deleted the former, while the latter looks good to me.

Call for participation in a task-based online experiment

Dear Hjfocs,

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, in which I have developed a personalised recommender system that suggests Wikidata items for the editors based on their past edits. I am collaborating on this project with Elena Simperl and Miaojing Shi.

I am inviting you to a task-based study that will ask you to provide your judgments about the relevance of the items suggested by our system based on your previous edits.

Participation is completely voluntary, and your cooperation will enable us to evaluate the accuracy of the recommender system in suggesting relevant items to you. We will analyse the results anonymised, and they will be published to a research venue.

The study will start in late January 2022 or early February 2022, and it should take no more than 30 minutes.

If you agree to participate in this study, please either contact me at kholoud.alghamdi@kcl.ac.uk or use this form https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSees9WzFXR0Vl3mHLkZCaByeFHRrBy51kBca53euq9nt3XWog/viewform?usp=sf_link

I will contact you with the link to start the study.

For more information about the study, please read this post: https://www.wikidata.org/wiki/User:Kholoudsaa

In case you have further questions or require more information, don't hesitate to contact me through my mentioned email.

Thank you for considering taking part in this research.

It's a VIAF identifier coming from MusicBrainz. Looks fine to me, I don't see any issue.
