User pages linksEdit

Please, take a look at the notability policy: Wikidata elements must not contain solely user pages links. Regards, Andreasm háblame / just talk to me 16:17, 29 July 2013 (UTC)

OK, but it would be great if a system to link between user pages could be created. J 1982 (talk) 22:44, 29 July 2013 (UTC)


Hey J 1982, thanks very much for the edits. Just a little tip, in English descriptions, we only capitalise the beginning if it is a proper noun, see Help:Descriptions for more info. We also usually add "Wikipedia category" as a description if the label begins with "Category:". Hope this helps, happy editing! Delsion23 (talk) 22:52, 22 August 2013 (UTC)

You better add the statement instance of (P31) Wikimedia category (Q4167836) so all languages can read what the item is about. 14:13, 23 August 2013 (UTC)

Hi iam newEdit

I dont really know what to do here maybe you could give me a tip or two? thanks. and happy holidays. --DonLandry2 (talk) 18:00, 22 December 2015 (UTC)

Thank you. it's is a place where different language versions of articles are linked together. Ask someone else if you want to know more. J 1982 (talk) 18:04, 22 December 2015 (UTC)
Are my entries any good? --DonLandry2 (talk) 18:07, 22 December 2015 (UTC)
Eric Snow is OK. Mo Vaughn already exists. I don't know in which languages Mi Sen have article. J 1982 (talk) 18:14, 22 December 2015 (UTC)

English DescriptionEdit

I want to ask you to be more accurate, when you changing descriptions. Especially if this descriptions written not in your native language and descriptions of items which is not well known to you. For example, Russia is not republic and what is "Euroasia"? Kamolan (talk) 15:25, 30 August 2016 (UTC)

Should be Eurasia. And with a president as head of state Russia is a republic, federal republic to be more exact. J 1982 (talk) 15:27, 30 August 2016 (UTC)

Church of SwedenEdit


Could you answer my question on my talk page? I'd like to know what you think and what should be done to really close this problem.

Cdlt, VIGNERON (talk) 10:42, 4 October 2017 (UTC)

Just wanted to say...Edit

...nice work on the hit-lists! Moebeus (talk) 00:51, 21 November 2018 (UTC)

Thank you. I wish more people could do similair edits like the ones I do. J 1982 (talk) 21:39, 23 November 2018 (UTC)

Template:Azerbaijani political partiesEdit


Can you create en:Template:Azerbaijani political parties in Swedish Wikipedia?

Sädesslag eller spannmålEdit

Hej! Tack för hjälpen. Jag är dock inte helt säker på att denna ändring var helt nödvändig. Sädesslag-mallen baserad sig nästan rakt av på den engelska Cereals-mallen, som nästan bara handlar om själva sädesslagen. Info om kornen och hur man brukar dem byggde jag ut i Spannmål-mallen, så att inte den första mallen blir överlastad. Så mitt förslag är att låta Spannmål-mallen vara iw-fri så länge.—Paracel63 (talk) 14:35, 5 April 2019 (UTC)

Jag har ingen åsikt i frågan. J 1982 (talk) 17:19, 5 April 2019 (UTC)
OK. Då flyttar jag tillbaka. Se även den här diskussionen. Allt gott.—Paracel63 (talk) 20:27, 5 April 2019 (UTC)

Please stop lying about foreign language titlesEdit

"The Clown Stays in the Picture" (Q61748990) is the ENGLISH title of the episode. Maybe it will be the title in a few other languages, too. But it neither IS nor WILL be the German or French title so PLEASE STOP adding those fake "titles" because you prevent bots from adding the correct titles when the episodes are available in these countries and get those titles. -- 14:18, 10 April 2019 (UTC)

It isn't exactly a lie to use the original titles until they get titles in French and German. J 1982 (talk) 16:41, 10 April 2019 (UTC)

BLP issue Greta ThunbergEdit

Dear J 1982, the aliases you added to Q56434717 are not notable nicknames but derogatory labels. Please read and understand WD:BLP and do not reinsert. Thank you. --SI 07:51, 19 April 2019 (UTC)

Import data from wikia/fandomEdit

If you like to perform batches like this you should have a look at the wikiadata.user.js--Loominade (talk) 11:19, 18 November 2019 (UTC)

Habo or ?Edit


I noticed you added the label "Église de Habo" on Hakarp Church (Q10516103) but shouldn't it be "église de Hakarp" (or maybe "église d'Hakarp", not sure how Hakarp is pronunced). I'm guessing it' a confusion with Habo Church (Q116603) but I'm not sure so could you tell me?

fictional professionsEdit

Hi J 1982, I saw that you created items for various fictional professions like fictional taxi driver (Q78680528), fictional optician (Q78817734) or fictional soldier (Q78817465). Now I'm wondering what the intended purpose of these is. For occupation (P106) statements on items of fictional characters, we use the normal non-fictional professions, since the fact that the character is fictional is already stated in the instance of (P31) statement. In an infobox about Clark Kent (Q867810) for example, his profession would be stated as "reporter", not "fictional reporter". So I'm not sure if duplicating profession items really adds any value. Regards, --Kam Solusar (talk) 14:19, 18 December 2019 (UTC)

I had no idea, but similair items already existed. J 1982 (talk) 15:45, 18 December 2019 (UTC)

Hold on with the television episodesEdit

Hi J 1982, I noticed this edit and that you created television series episode (Q79765432). I don't agree with the creation of television series episode (Q79765432). It's redundant and not in line with Wikidata:WikiProject_Movies/Properties#Episode. Did you discus this somewhere before these mass changes? Multichill (talk) 15:35, 26 December 2019 (UTC)

The list of recently created items: Monster of the Week (Q72607030), television series episode (Q73508876), television series episode (Q73508879), television series episode (Q73508887), television series episode (Q73508888), television series episode (Q73508893), television series episode (Q76317338), television series episode (Q76319090), television series episode (Q76370263), television series episode (Q76394053), television series episode (Q76400706), television series episode (Q76429035), television series episode (Q79765432), Christmas episode (Q79766755), television series episode (Q79767997), Easter episode (Q79768983), Halloween episode (Q79769107), New Year episode (Q79769844), Thanksgiving episode (Q79770458), Lucy episode (Q79770638), television series episode (Q79790138), television series episode (Q79842982), television series episode (Q79843945), Columbus Day (Q79848748), Valentine's Day episode (Q79848760).

I had no idea. J 1982 (talk) 10:01, 27 December 2019 (UTC)
Probably best to redirect them all to have a bot resolve it. Multichill (talk) 10:52, 28 December 2019 (UTC)

WikiProject Star TrekEdit

hey, i thought you might like to join Wikidata:WikiProject_Star_Trek 😃 --Shisma (talk) 11:34, 8 February 2020 (UTC)

No, I'm adding many other series too, and can't join every project. However we need one thing: The possibility to link to this Star Trek Database in Swedish. J 1982 (talk) 15:24, 8 February 2020 (UTC)

do you need help writing a property proposal?--Shisma (talk) 20:27, 8 February 2020 (UTC)

Yes. J 1982 (talk) 14:50, 9 February 2020 (UTC)

I drafted a proposal here. Feel free to edit it. for instance, please add a Swedish label and description. --Shisma (talk) 14:59, 9 February 2020 (UTC)


When creating items for fictional characters please use fictional mutant (Q2248485) instead of mutant (Q3285695). --Trade (talk) 21:57, 2 April 2020 (UTC)

Confusing editEdit

Why did you say this United States-based sports league was in Australia? —Justin (koavf)TCM 20:00, 5 April 2020 (UTC)

Fixa svenska labelsEdit

Hej. Skulle du kunna städa upp i ändringar som denna https://www.wikidata.org/w/index.php?title=Q2154459&diff=555460702&oldid=530792428 så att översättningen i stället bliver "stad i New England" eller liknande? Jag frågar eftersom att enkelordiga översättningar bidrar med falska positiva i https://machtsinn.toolforge.org/?lang=9027 På förhand tack!--So9q (talk) 03:52, 9 May 2020 (UTC)


Why did you cancelled the links I made yesterday ?

It is the same song ǃ Juste the title changes from one language to another ǃ

--AXRL (talk) 14:59, 8 October 2020 (UTC)

They're under "Io che non vivo (senza te)", the original song title. J 1982 (talk) 15:15, 8 October 2020 (UTC)

And then ?

̽the links for the english title are in en, fr, he, id, nn and ru ;

the links for italian title are in it, no and sv.

So there are no problem of conflicts ǃ

Var det verkligen meningen att ta bort detta alias? I så fall, varför? Ainali (talk) 21:57, 27 October 2020 (UTC)

Tänkte den inte skulle vara där med tanke på alla partiledardebatter i världen i oktober 2020, men jag har i alla fall återställt nu. J 1982 (talk) 22:07, 27 October 2020 (UTC)
