Hi Stas, I see you left the WMF. I wanted to thank you for all the good work you did over the years. Good luck with your new job (I assume you're moving somewhere else) and I hope you stick around as a volunteer.

Hi Stas,

Just noticed today that you left. Thank you from my side as well. The amazing changes your help with setting up and running Query Server brought Wikidata to a different level. Obviously, from a mere user's perspective WMF internal workings aren't that transparent to me, but I tend to attribute much of it to you. Without your converter, I don't think I'd ever have learned SPARQL!

All the best for your next challenge.

Thank you @Multichill and @Jura1 for the kind words! I do plan to be around as a volunteer, though probably will have some time constraints.

Hi! I added info about the locatorbot in official documentation as mentioned in Property_talk:P625#How_to_specify_globe. I saw in the logs that it was still active, but let me know if it's not considered official. While I looked at it, I found that the u:Locatorbot was not very detailed. I didn't look at the code. This query indicates that some "errors" aren't fixed by the bot. Are there restrictions that could be documented? How often is it running?

Hi Laboramus I'm working with User:EpochFail (@halfak on irc) on a research study to look into how mw:ORES is working out on wikis where it has been enabled. I was hoping to talk a little about what the kind of work you do on Wikidata and about how the ORES edit filters and classifiers have been working out. Do you use any tools other than Special:RecentChanges or Special:Watchlist that take advantage of ORES? Do you know of any other tools that are used to patrol that do not use ORES? I'm also interested in any other observations you may have about how the ORES scores are working out. Thank you!

I would like to point out this diff, about demographic data from 1553. The bot has changed the "Julian" attribute to "Gregorian". But being a few years before 1582, the correct calendar is Julian, so now it gets flagged as wrong. Can you please review that, and prevent the calendarmodel from changing?

Laboramus (talkcontribs)

Hmm the bot should not change calendars. This is a bug. I'll fix it, thanks for reporting!

Laboramus (talkcontribs)

Fixed, the bot should not mess with the calendars anymore.

Laboramus (talkcontribs)

Thanks, will take a look

Laboramus (talkcontribs)

Implemented now.

Jura1 (talkcontribs)

Thanks. The first is already done and it seems to work slowly through the second one.

Could you remove wheel arrangement (P2978) from the list of properties that Preferential Bot works on please. While it might be useful on locomotives that are still in service, for locomotives that were scrapped a hundred years ago, all wheel arrangements are equally valid, so the setting of a preferred rank is not appropriate. Thanks

Laboramus (talkcontribs)

Thanks, will do. Sorry for the inconvenience.

This edition you made last year? I don't understand Russian language, but i can infer that Даяты are yoga postures and not paintings?. Please, add a description in english if you can. Thanks a lot in advance.

Laboramus (talkcontribs)

The article says that Dayats are paintings that are used in yoga meditation. I am in no way a specialist in yoga or dayats, but that's what the article is saying and the links confirm it.

Russian painting articles in the "possible paintings" list.

Jane023 (talkcontribs)

Hi not sure if you were working from the "possible paintings" SoaP list when you created the Hermitage painting item for Carracci's Rest on the Flight into Egypt. I just wanted to say thanks for creating the item but in general click through to the image as usually it will already be connected to the proper item. Theoretically this will happen pretty often on Russian Wikipedia as many ruwiki editors are blissfully unaware of Wikidata and the links on Commons. The Hermitage paintings are fully indexed here Wikidata:WikiProject sum of all paintings/Collection/Hermitage

Laboramus (talkcontribs)

Thanks! I usually check the image on commons and search and only create new one if neither matches. I am not sure why I didn't find the previous one in this case. I'll be more careful next time and also check the Hermitage list. Thanks and sorry for the mistake.

Jane023 (talkcontribs)

Thanks for taking the time, and if you are interested, Maarten has also created lists on Commons to match images to items on Wikidata. I think the Hermitage categories on Commons could use some Wikilove, but hey, just doing what you did helps too ;)

Laboramus (talkcontribs)

@Jane023 Looks like not all Hermitage paintings are in that page though... E.g. Q27978148 wasn't. Probably because of the limit. Maybe increase it a bit?

Jane023 (talkcontribs)

Well maybe you were just faster than the bot? It does link to it today: That said, you could of course just update the Russian version before using it - it seems to not update very often (last time was 2 weeks ago?) Wikidata:WikiProject sum of all paintings/Wiki monitor/ruwiki That one is a listeria list, so you can update the query in there if you like. The bot is not mine by the way, but Maarten's, so you might want to drop him a line if you want a tailored version of it.

Laboramus (talkcontribs)

No I meant it is not mentioned in the list of Hermitage paintings. I still can find it by matching the inventory number but using the list was easier... Also looks like the listeria query has a bug - it checks the inventory number against Q95569 not Q132783 so ?inv never matches. Probably just makes sorting broken since Listeria does not use it otherwise.

Jane023 (talkcontribs)

Fixed it, but it takes so long to load just to edit! That list should really be split up - it's way too big (back when none of the lists had images, it didn't take so long to update). Look at the lists for the Rijksmuseum or the Metropolitan Museum of Art - that makes searching a lot easier (also checking the leftovers).
