Airports in IndiaEdit

Hi there, I suppose you are keen on Indian airports. If you could check this list

PREFIX wdno: <>
PREFIX rdf: <>
SELECT DISTINCT ?airport ?airportLabel (SAMPLE(?coord) AS ?coord) ?ICAO ?IATA  WHERE {
  ?airport (wdt:P31/wdt:P279*) wd:Q62447.
  ?airport wdt:P17 wd:Q668.
  MINUS { ?airport wdt:P576 _:b2. }
  MINUS { ?airport wdt:P582 _:b3. }
  MINUS { ?airport (wdt:P31/wdt:P279*) wd:Q1311670. }
  MINUS { ?airport (wdt:P31/wdt:P279*) wd:Q7373622. }
  MINUS { ?airport (wdt:P31/wdt:P279*) wd:Q502074. }
  MINUS { ?airport (wdt:P31/wdt:P279*) wd:Q2265915. }
  MINUS { ?airport (wdt:P31/wdt:P279*) wd:Q44665966. }
  MINUS { ?airport (wdt:P31/wdt:P279*) wd:Q782667. }
  MINUS { ?airport rdf:type wdno:P17. }
  SERVICE wikibase:label { bd:serviceParam wikibase:language "en,fr,[AUTO_LANGUAGE]". }
  OPTIONAL { ?airport wdt:P625 ?coord. }
  OPTIONAL { ?airport wdt:P239 ?ICAO. }
  OPTIONAL { ?airport wdt:P238 ?IATA. }
GROUP BY ?airport ?airportLabel ?ICAO ?IATA
ORDER BY ?coord

Try it! and make sure there is no duplicates or defuncts airports on this+if all have their correct IATA and ICAO codes ?

If you don't have time, no problem. Thank you ! Bouzinac (talk) 21:12, 3 February 2019 (UTC)

Thanks a bunchEdit

Thank you for your work on the duplicate items!

Why did you rangeblock rather than just block the individual IP? No other addresses in the range have vandalized for over 8 months.--Jasper Deng (talk) 09:50, 25 February 2019 (UTC)


Hey! I'm sorry about this. I just copied over another request and modified it, but did not fix that specific thing. Thanks for noticing! --Cuatro Remos (talk) 19:42, 26 April 2019 (UTC)

Kadapa Lok Sabha constituencyEdit

In case you can fix the problem, I would like to let you know that your edits to items such as Kadapa Lok Sabha constituency (Q3764405) have caused errors to appear at enwiki, for example en:Kadapa (Lok Sabha constituency) is showing "Lua error in Module:Lok_sabha_constituency at line 429: attempt to index global 'P585Qual' (a nil value)". The module is probably deficient as was discussed at en:Wikipedia talk:Lua#Module:Lok sabha constituency. The articles listed there used to have errors due to edits made at Wikidata. Another article which currently has a problem is en:Kurnool (Lok Sabha constituency). If you are confident your edits at Wikidata are good, and if no one fixes the module, I will remove the broken infobox from the affected articles. This is just for your information. Johnuniq (talk) 05:40, 1 June 2019 (UTC)

@Johnuniq: The semantic problem of having "points in time" on constituency items is something about which I have previously informed @Mdmahir:, the creator of the Lua module. Just today I went ahead and removed them all, which has caused the errors you are describing. I stand by these removals, especially since it is more meaningful to have election information for specific constituencies in items dedicated to those elections as well as items for candidates in those elections (see, for example, 2014 Indian general election in Nilgiris Lok Sabha constituency (Q63988758)) and two candidates Gopalakrishnan Chinnaraj (Q16937372) and Andimuthu Raja (Q201408)). Mahir256 (talk) 05:48, 1 June 2019 (UTC)
OK, I'll remove the infoboxes in due course. Johnuniq (talk) 06:58, 1 June 2019 (UTC)


Hi, I don't understand that fawiki block but as you are the one who blocked Sarvathi here you may want to look at Special:Contributions/ who keeps singing translation requests as Sarvathi. So what was the issue there, why to block at WD too? Regards --09:53, 30 June 2019 (UTC), Utar (talk)


I see that you have merged thousands of items with your bot, however without creating redirects. While I'm running a bot catching up on the lost, it is not designed to do this on such a massive scale. Especially because my bot is editing much slower than QuickStatements, I expcet that around 10%-30% of all items will be left without redirect. --Pasleim (talk) 18:56, 3 July 2019 (UTC)

@Pasleim: My apologies for inadvertently giving PLbot so much trouble. I'd say of the merges I wanted to execute, less than half were even attempted by QS (since the rest returned an API error having to do with the hashes of references); of those that were attempted, many of them lack redirects (since QS doesn't create them in the presence of conflicting descriptions). I have started to see whether I can fix the former problem via PAWS; I am more than happy to address the latter problem once PLbot has finished what it's doing right now, so that a list of forgotten redirections can be clearly obtained.

Hi Mahir256,

I noticed your bot adding more labels to number items. Thanks for doing that. I wonder if you'd want to add the same with code (P3295) as well. I started doing so for some numerals, but I don't think I came to the ones you have been adding. Sample at Q756138#P3295. --- Jura 06:24, 1 October 2019 (UTC)
