wbEntity config value to be dropped on July 24th

1
Lea Lacroix (WMDE) (talkcontribs)

Hello,

We are about to drop the mw.config.get( 'wbEntity') config value, that is deprecated for two years. Starting on Wednesday, July 24th, scripts that use this value may encounter issues.

I noticed that your script located on User:Mbch331/Gadget-AuthorityControl.js is still using this value. I suggest that you update it, for example by using the hook wikibase.entityPage.entityLoaded (see an example here).

If you have any questions or need help, feel free to leave a comment under the related task.

Thanks for your understanding!

How's ORES working out for you?

Groceryheist (talkcontribs)

Hi Mbch331,

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!

hoi, Via TBP op nl.wiki viel mij een door een vandaal vervuild wikidata element op. De ellende begon hier: Special:Contributions/ShyhC (vandalisme is opgemerkt, en gebruiker is geblokkeerd).. Ik weet niet wat gemakkelijker is ofwel situatie terugzetten tot voor vervuiling of aanpassen aan huidige situatie. In het laatste geval, Misschien heeft u een tooltje om de tekst van labels sneller, dan manueel aan te passen. Voor Johnny Orlando werd daarna een nieuw element aangemaakt, maar de naam staat vaak nog in het oude element. Misschien kan met een bot of zo dit vrij snel verholpen worden. Dus: d:Q61968640 moet worden 'Johnny Orlando'. De naam dient verwijderd te worden uit Q21931273, Of

Mbch331 (talkcontribs)

Het hergebruiken van een item voor een andere artiest is niet toegestaan. Ik heb de links naar enwiki en dawiki verwijderd op Q61968640, daarna een oude versie teruggezet op Q21931273 en daarna de 2 samengevoegd. En die Shy hoort niet thuis op Wikidata.

dank voor snelle reactie. idd een betere oplossing zo.

Hello. I noticed issue with this properity long time ago. If u add album ID it redirects to American version of market (itunes.apple.com/us). I have noticed someone added https://itunes.apple.com/ca/album/$1 for Canadian market in URL format but there is no way to get links to Canadian market. Do you know what to do with it?

Mbch331 (talkcontribs)

The Wikidata interface only uses the first formatter URL to display links on the site. In most cases it doesn't matter which country you used for an iTunes link, since most songs are available worldwide under the same id. You could address the issue on the property talk page and if you don't get any response there, you could always ask on Project Chat.

Eurohunter (talkcontribs)

There is many releases unavaiable in the United States.

Mbch331 (talkcontribs)

Guess the songs I buy don't have this issue.

Eurohunter (talkcontribs)

Hello. Thanks for explanation. Do you know why I can't add certain languages? Certain languages which I can't add has been already added to few articles I have seen. List of headers returns "You've sent a lang param that isn't recognized by MediaWiki!".

Mbch331 (talkcontribs)

How do you add a language? Just en or enwiki? If the link is to <language>.wikipedia.org, than you should use <language>wiki for adding the sitelink. If you have an example you can't get added, give me the link and the item and then I can check what's going on.

Eurohunter (talkcontribs)

I mean list of headers and "Add new language" option where you only type langauge id. Examples I found are aeb-arab - Tunisian Arabic (Arabic script), zh-my - Chinese (Malaysia), kbp - Kabiye and gor - Gorontalo. I have seen first two in certain articles fx Q33.

Mbch331 (talkcontribs)

You're using the beta version of label lister. Seems to be a bug in the gadget. It says MediaWiki doesn't accept the language code, but there is no api request when you're trying to add a new language. I checked the gadget and it uses a static list of accepted languages. I added the missing languages to the list. They should now be accepted (except zh-my, which is no longer an accepted language). If you run into more missing languages, post a request on MediaWiki talk:Gadget-labelLister.js/beta.js.

Eurohunter (talkcontribs)

I'm sure there is atleast few languages missing. Could someone check them all? Btw. is here any list with all languages id? In addition there should be also list of id by language parameter so readers can realise which language is under which id. Currently it's not possible and you need to check history change descriptions or even compare edit changes to determine language id.

Eurohunter (talkcontribs)

Tunisian Arabic has no other sripts? Shouldn't "sr-el" and "sr-ec" (Serbian scripts) be changed to "sr-latn" and "sr-cyrl" as Kazakh and others?

Mbch331 (talkcontribs)

Don't know where to find a complete list of languages. You could ask on WD:DEV. Don't know if se-el/sr-ec or sr-latn/sr-cyrl is correct.

Eurohunter (talkcontribs)

I found din - Dinka, ady - Adyghe, atj - Atikamekw, olo - Livvi-Karelian, dty - Doteli and gom - Konkani (?) are missing.

Mbch331 (talkcontribs)

Please post a request on the talk page of the gadget (see earlier response). Don't know if they're languages that can indeed be used for labels or only for monolingual languages.

Page protection can be challenged on WD:AN

why ?

Mbch331 (talkcontribs)

Which page?

50.254.21.213 (talkcontribs)

What isn't vandalism,

Generally speaking, any good-faith attempt to improve Wikidata is not vandalism.

50.254.21.213 (talkcontribs)

you are too close to the subject and should have withdrawn as a conflict of interest.

Mbch331 (talkcontribs)
Mbch331 (talkcontribs)

You can always ask on WD:AN for another admin to review if the protection was correct or not.
