addition of is in descriptionsEdit

I have just had a re-read of HELP:Description and will re-visit my description edits from today - just in case anyone is worried. User:JarrahTree) 09:43, 25 April 2013 (UTC)[]


You mean in the alias? Generally, yes, I would include an alias for the Wikipedia article title if different to the Wikidata label (although in the case of place names, this seems to be more a hangover of the strange reflexive disambiguation of place names on WP:AUS). Technically though, on Wikidata the description should be sufficient to distinguish it – it's overstating it a bit to call it "dangerous" in my opinion – it's essentially just a typing shortcut. Not sure why it was missed on d:Q1531147, but if you look at Taroona (d:Q7686553) where I did some bulk editing using quickstatements at the same time, I added an alias for "Taroona, Tasmania" which I was doing when removing the disambiguators from the primary labels. Thanks for adding the alias anyway! --Canley (talk) 23:04, 4 March 2017 (UTC)[]

New page for cataloguesEdit

Hi, I created a new page for collecting sites that could be added to Mix'n'match and I plan to expand it with the ones that already have scrapers by category. Feel free to use, expand. Best, --Adam Harangozó (talk) 14:21, 24 October 2019 (UTC)[]

inHerit should just have a single value on each itemEdit

Hi JarrahTree. Thanks for taking up the matching challenge for inHerit Place Number (P2618). I just noticed that you are adding a lot of inherit IDs to the same item. For example, on Collie (Q130685) there are about 20, but there should only be 1. This is basically because we consider every heritage listed item to be (on its own) notable for Wikidata. So for example, even 167 Throssell St, Collie should get a new item. Only match to an existing Wikidata item if the heritage item *is* that Wikidata item. I know this is slightly different to what we sometimes do for the Trove set, but that is because we basically consider that Trove has broken a single Newspaper into many IDs, so we associate them all with the same item. --99of9 (talk) 03:35, 25 October 2019 (UTC)[]

They will eventually show up on this list, but it is only updated intermittently. More immediately, you can run a "sync" in M'n'M with this link sync. --99of9 (talk) 04:27, 25 October 2019 (UTC)[]

Yes still aboutEdit

Just making an occasional flurry of updates every so often! -- Chuq (talk) 05:02, 17 August 2021 (UTC)[]
