Added information from less reliable sourceEdit

In this edit you added a coordinate location from Cebuano Wikipedia, which, like all Wikipedias, is an unreliable source. The item already had a coordinate location from a reliable source, with a citation to a reliable source, United States Board on Geographic Names (Q1148422). I have deleted the unreliable information. Please take care when making edits of this source in the future.

Upon further review I see that you are consistently making several edits per minute. Please explain why your activity is not a violation of the bot policy. Jc3s5h (talk) 15:59, 21 September 2018 (UTC)

@Jc3s5h: All that I'm doing here is merging data items that refer to the same entity. There's no obligation when dealing with one maintenance issue to ensure that no others exist in the items in question, and I don't think a duplicative coordinates are a major issue in most cases, especially when information is provided that lets users like you decide which ones should be removed in the future. A merge is done by pressing a button once, which triggers several edits at once, see MediaWiki:Gadget-Merge.js; regardless of the pace of merges being executed I'm reviewing my edits sufficiently and you can't violate a bot policy in performing manual or semi-automated edits.

Your edit on Llanfihangel Bachellaeth (Q6661365)Edit

Hi. I note that you have added that Llanfihangel Bachellaeth (Q6661365) is a community (Q2630741), which is a term for local government in Wales; it should state that it is a village. A list of all community (Q2630741) can be found here on the portal for national statistics. The word 'community' in Wales refers to a council and it's area - similar to 'parish' in England! Please correct this and all the others you have made. Thanks! Llywelyn2000 (talk) 10:58, 11 October 2018 (UTC)

@Llywelyn2000: Entities that are defined by having been communities in the past should also have the value of community (Q2630741), with end time (P582) as a qualifier. This one according to English Wikipedia was a 'civil parish' until 1934, and 'civil parish' is listed as an alias for a community in Wales—do you know the details of the history? I guess I should have used civil parish (Q4976993) (non-country specific) without knowing all that, so I've changed it to that value. Innotata (talk) 16:47, 11 October 2018 (UTC)
I see it's in good hands! Yes, I agree that civil parish (Q4976993) is best. Thanks! Llywelyn2000 (talk) 17:50, 11 October 2018 (UTC)
