Hallo Magnus, die letzten drei Tage kann ich in Quickstatements keine Stapel hochladen. Es braucht sehr lange und kommt zu keinem Ende. Ich habe meinen Browsercache geleert und es funktioniert immer noch nicht. Das finde ich schade, da ich so nicht beitragen kann, wie ich möchte. Kannst du bitte schauen an was es liegt und nach einer langfristigen Lösung suchen, dass es am Besten nicht mehr oder zumindest selten passiert. Soweit ich es gelesen habe wurde das Entwicklerteam darum gebeten mehr Verbindungen für deine Tools zur Verfügung zu stellen.

Hallo Magnus, kannst du bitte prüfen, an was es liegt, da es immer noch nicht geht und ich Stapel hochladen möchte.

Magnus Manske (talkcontribs)

Probier's bitte jetzt nochmal.

Bist Du eingeloggt?

Hogü-456 (talkcontribs)

Ich bin eingeloggt und es hat nicht funktioniert, es lädt lange und kommt zu keinem Ende.

Hogü-456 (talkcontribs)

Jetzt geht es wieder. Ich habe einen anderen Inhalt gewählt und dann lädt es nicht lange und funktioniert.

Reinheitsgebot is still mentioning 9 October 2017

RonnieV (talkcontribs)

Hallo Magnus,

Your bot is still stating that it has verified sources on 9 October 2017 for information that was not known at that time. See here for a recent example. I know you are doing a lot of things for Wikidata, and so is your bot. But this behaviour on P813 is definitely wrong and makes Wikidata less useful. P813 is used by bots to display information, for instance here or ro:Vasile_Florea (footnotes). Can you please fix this?

Thanks, RonnieV (talk) 15:26, 10 July 2019 (UTC)

Hallo @Magnus Manske

@Reinheitsgebot still insists on stating is has checked sources on 9 October 2017, like here. Renate Dorrestein died on 4 April 2018. I once more would like to urge you to solve this problem, if needed just by suppressing the P813-parameter. I know you and your bot do a lot of work, good work, but this is definitively not amongst is.

Removing all P813 with a date before the date of the item (at least P569/P570/P1636/P4602) would be great.

Hope to hear from you soon, RonnieV (talk) 09:43, 13 July 2019 (UTC)

Strange problem with TLG on Mix'n'match

Epìdosis (talkcontribs)

Hi again! I've noticed two problems in TLG author ID (P3576) on Mix'n'match (2377):

  • the entry for 0240 has the name "Hermogenes" instead of "Hermolochus" (same problem in related entry of Perseus Catalog])
  • the entry for 0592, which should have had the name "Hermogenes", is absent in the actual TLG catalog.

Should TLG catalog maybe be scraped again in order to find other missing entries? TLG has 2514 author entries and the actual catalog has only 1186! Thank you!!!

Epìdosis (talkcontribs)

Another strange case of completely wrong names:

  • the entry for 0026 has the name "Aenigmata Merovingicae aetatis" instead of "Aeschines" (same problem in the related entry of Perseus Catalog)
Epìdosis (talkcontribs)

Any update? Thank you very much!

From time to time I encounter items like La producción familiar como alternativa de un desarrollo sostenible para la Amazonía: lecciones aprendidas de iniciativas de uso forestal por productores familiares en la Amazonía boliviana, brasilera, ecuatoriana y peruana (Q63563942) , where the language is stated as English, although this is obviously not the case. How does the bot determine the languae of such an article? Note that the abstract of the article is available in english, but the full article only in spanish and portuguese.

Magnus Manske (talkcontribs)

If the upstream datasource (PubMed etc.) does not specify the language, the fallback is "en". Also, often upstream sources wrongly say "English" when it's not.

Magnus Manske (talkcontribs)

Might be worth running some language detector on title (P1476) and highlight the wrong ones.

M'n'M spreadsheet importer is down

99of9 (talkcontribs)

Hi Magnus. Although MnM itself seems to be working, the spreadsheet importer at: returns the following errors (before even loading):

string 'SELECT DISTINCT `type` FROM catalog ORDER BY `type`' (length=51)
string '#0 /data/project/mix-n-match/scripts/mixnmatch.php(47): ToolforgeCommon->getSQL(Object(mysqli), 'SELECT DISTINCT...', 5)
#1 /data/project/mix-n-match/public_html/import.php(27): MixNMatch->getSQL('SELECT DISTINCT...')
#2 {main}' (length=227)

Toolforge had a bad moment again. Restarted.

Hello Magnus Manske,

As already mentioned on the page of your bot, it looks like the bot inserts wrong data in Wikidata. A new example is here, where your bot states that the Guggenheim Museum knew on October 9th, 2017 that Winslow Briggs was gonna die on 11 feb 2019. It looks like your bot is programmed to date all kind of actions on 9 oct 2017, which is obviously wrong.

Could you please make your bot stop inserting these wrong dates? The actual date of verification of data is always welcome.

Thanks in advance, RonnieV (talk) 23:58, 3 July 2019 (UTC)

Magnus Manske (talkcontribs)

This should be deactivated now. if you see edits like that beyond today, let me know please!

RonnieV (talkcontribs)

Hello Magnus,

This edit is just 15 minutes old. Reinheidsgebot still says '9 october 2017'. So does it here and here. Thanks for solving it! RonnieV (talk) 22:32, 4 July 2019 (UTC)

Axolotl Nr.733 (talkcontribs)

Hello Magnus, another issue here is that Guggenheim fellowships aren't awarded by the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, but by the John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation (Q507237). There's no connection between the two, besides the fact that their respective founders were brothers. Regards, Axolotl Nr.733 (talk) 09:10, 7 July 2019 (UTC)

RonnieV (talkcontribs)

@Magnus Manske:, And here Reinheidsgebot states that the Cesko-Slovenská filmová databáze knew on 9 October 2017 that Katalin Koller was going to die three months later.

I would really like you to dive further in this and stop your bot until then, as it is putting absolutely wrong information in the database. I also ask to undo all P813's with a data prior to the actual date of decease (or birth), at least where your bot stated that sources are visited on 9 October 2017, but maybe for all instances.

An acceptable solution would be, for me, to skip adding a P813 in these cases.

Roy17 (talkcontribs)

Tan Zekai (Q45694204) was imported from China Biographical Database (Q13407958) by User:Fantasticfears. Then User:Reinheitsgebot added years of birth and death, presumably from CBDB data? However, CBDB entry, as of now, says that the person was born in 1889 and died in 1948 aged 59. The years and age are completely different from Reinheitsgebot's addition. I do not know whether CBDB corrected the entry after wikidata imported the wrong data. If they did not, there might be something wrong with the bot.

Magnus Manske (talkcontribs)

It was matched here but my auxiliary data matcher. However, I don't really know why. Maybe someone gave me a pre-matched list?
