Welcome to Wikidata, Krd!

Wikidata is a free knowledge base that you can edit! It can be read and edited by humans and machines alike and you can go to any item page now and add to this ever-growing database!

Need some help getting started? Here are some pages you can familiarize yourself with:

  • Introduction – An introduction to the project.
  • Wikidata tours – Interactive tutorials to show you how Wikidata works.
  • Community portal – The portal for community members.
  • User options – including the 'Babel' extension, to set your language preferences.
  • Contents – The main help page for editing and using the site.
  • Project chat – Discussions about the project.
  • Tools – A collection of user-developed tools to allow for easier completion of some tasks.

Please remember to sign your messages on talk pages by typing four tildes (~~~~); this will automatically insert your username and the date.

If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask on Project chat. If you want to try out editing, you can use the sandbox to try. Once again, welcome, and I hope you quickly feel comfortable here, and become an active editor for Wikidata.

Best regards!

Nach Verschiebung Alias und Bezeichnung identischEdit

Hallo Krd. Wäre es vielleicht möglich, dass dein Bot bei Artikelverschiebungen auch überprüft, ob die neue Bezeichnung einem der Aliasse entspricht und ein solches Alias entfernt? Da ein Beispiel dafür. --Leyo 12:17, 2 June 2013 (UTC)

Hallo. Ich geh davon aus, dass das kein größeres Problem sein sollte, allerdings müsste ich mir das genauer ansehen. Kann ein paar Tage dauern. --Krd (talk) 07:32, 3 June 2013 (UTC)
Eilen tut's nicht. --Leyo 13:26, 6 June 2013 (UTC)
Wie kann man diese Aliase denn überhaupt sehen? Mir werden die gar nicht angezeigt. --Krd (talk) 16:59, 6 June 2013 (UTC)

Nach Verschiebung: Zwei Objekte gleichen NamensEdit

Hallo, in de.WP wurde der Artikel BMW Concept ActiveE nach BMW ActiveE verschoben. Dein Bot hat daraufhin das damit verknüpfte Objekt ebenfalls umbenannt, dabei aber übersehen, dass es bereits ein Objekt desselben Namens gibt. Vielleicht könnte der Bot zukünftig überprüfen, ob er statt einer Umbenennung ein bereits existierendes Objekt verknüpfen kann? -- Brakehorsepower (talk) 18:37, 16 July 2013 (UTC)

Hallo Brakehorsepower. Das klingt erstmal gut, allerdings müssen die Objekte ja dennoch manuell zusammengeführt werden, und ich sehe nicht ganz, wie der Bot das leisten könnte. --Krd (talk) 18:47, 16 July 2013 (UTC)
Keine Ahnung. Ich kenne mich weder mit Wikidata noch mit Bots aus, ich wollte dich nur auf den Vorgang hinweisen. Vielleicht könnte der Bot stattdessen eine Art Fehlermeldung ausgeben, die man dann manuell nachbearbeitet? Oder wäre der Fehler irgendwann anderweitig aufgefallen? Ich wäre dir übrigens nicht böse, wenn du im vorliegenden Fall alles Weitere veranlasst, weil ich auch nicht genau weiß, wie das mit dem Zusammenführen funktionieren soll. Q796429 kann meiner Meinung nach gelöscht werden, denn vom Concept ActiveE steht nur noch die Commons-Kategorie drin, und die Wahrscheinlichkeit, dass er noch mal einen eigenen Artikel bekommt, ist eher gering. -- Brakehorsepower (talk) 19:39, 16 July 2013 (UTC)
Ich habe es so gut es ging zusammengeführt und das leere Objekt zu löschen vorgeschlagen. Meiner Meinung nach ist das damit erledigt. --Krd (talk) 05:08, 17 July 2013 (UTC)

mein Konto entsperrenEdit

guten Abend Krd
Ich bitte Sie daher, das Gebet in meinem Konto entsperren auf Wikimedia.

Jemand hat es verbockt und dein Bot verschiebt hin und her. --Eingangskontrolle (talk) 09:12, 14 August 2016 (UTC)

Ich hab leider keine Idee, wovon Du sprichst. --Krd (talk) 09:42, 14 August 2016 (UTC)

enwiki pagemovesEdit

Hi Krd,

In Wikidata:Project_chat#Duplicates_on_Wikidata_(sitelink_and_sitelink_to_redirect) @MisterSynergy: mentioned Krdbot updates the sitelinks of pagemoves in dewiki.

Could it do the same for enwiki? See Wikidata:Bot_requests#request_to_mirror_Wikipedia_page_moves:_enwiki_and/or_others_(2021-11-14). --- Jura 17:06, 18 November 2021 (UTC)

I‘ve setup this for dewiki as I have a bot running there anyway that watches page moves. I don‘t think it makes much sense to build a bad workaround and port that to other single wikis, but, years after introduction of Wikidata, this should finally be resolved globally directly by Mediawiki. Krd 17:15, 18 November 2021 (UTC)
enwiki has probably the largest impact, but I agree, somehow it seems to be too much a practical data quality problem to actually get it fixed. --- Jura 17:24, 18 November 2021 (UTC)
I say in other words just to be clear: I‘m happy to look into it, but having a bot for that should not at all be a precedent to not get it fixed directly in the system. Krd 18:15, 18 November 2021 (UTC)
Unfortunately it is, but if it hasn't been fixed in 8 years, it's likely that it never will. --- Jura 18:30, 18 November 2021 (UTC)
I've put something active now, after limited testing only. Can you please keep an eye on it for some time that nothing goes wrong, and nothing is missing? Thx! --Krd 20:16, 20 November 2021 (UTC)
Looks good. Thanks for doing this. It should take care of most problems found at User:Pi_bot/old_new_item. Personally, I would add the new title as alias and not update the label. --- Jura 10:30, 23 November 2021 (UTC)
Makes sense. Will look into that later. --Krd 10:34, 23 November 2021 (UTC)
Maybe the username of the user at enwiki could be logged as well. This could help identify larger issues. If it's linked, maybe it would also ping them and lead them to create an account on Wikidata, thus reducing the need for corrections. Maybe we should add somewhere an explanation about why it's done. --- Jura 10:38, 23 November 2021 (UTC)
Please feel free to create some documentation. I will do the code changes as soon as possible. --Krd 10:42, 23 November 2021 (UTC)
  Done Help:Sitelinks#Page renames --- Jura 10:52, 23 November 2021 (UTC)
Did Wikibase fail for this pagemove because it was over a redirect?
User:John Maynard Friedman has an account on Wikidata. --- Jura 11:28, 23 November 2021 (UTC)
An alternative explanation could be that the Wikibase function is too slow/needs a bit more time to kick in. --- Jura 11:38, 23 November 2021 (UTC)
That would explain why the is a "wait 30" in the code, which now re-enabled. --Krd 11:51, 23 November 2021 (UTC)

I'm afraid I don't really understand the foregoing but in case it helps any, this is the sequence I followed:

  1. I moved "Double Dagger" to "Double Dagger (band)"
  2. I created "Double dagger (disambiguation)"
  3. I changed "Double Dagger" from a redirect to "Double Dagger (band)" (as generated by the page move process" to redirect to "Double dagger (disambiguation).
  4. I changed Double dagger from being a redirect to "Double dagger (mark)" to redirect to "Double dagger (disambiguation)", thought the better of it and reverted.

I hope that helps. Any queries, leave a note at my talk page on en:WP or mention me here as I get pinged with an interwiki notification. Regards. --John Maynard Friedman (talk) 20:14, 23 November 2021 (UTC)

I have not enough understanding of how this internal function work to create any theory. If this shall be clarified, I think we need to involve some Wikidata developers. --Krd 07:59, 24 November 2021 (UTC)
Thanks for the detailed explanation. I think the pagemove mirroring by Wikibase might stop when there are conflicting changes. It seems that bot did what's needed. Q94476826 might have had a similar problem. I'll keep watching it.
BTW, even if the pings mentioned earlier probably doen't work for non-existing accounts, it's easier to check if the link in the edit summary goes to Wikidata.
I supposed the first part of the summary is automatic:
Changed link to [enwiki]: Double Dagger (band)
I'd added the following:
, renamed from [[en:Double Dagger]] by [[User:Username]]. #Bot for [[Help:Sitelinks#Page renames]]
One could include the rename target as well, but it's mentioned in the automatic part and the link from the original page is likely to redirect there.--- Jura 11:21, 24 November 2021 (UTC)

The bot did mis-moveEdit

The bot change the name of the actress "Pauline Quirke" to "Pauline's Quirkes" which whilst humorous is inaccurate.


I've change it back but thought I'd let you know Back ache (talk) 15:58, 2 December 2022 (UTC)
