WikiProject sum of all paintings/Possible pantingsEdit

I have tried [Wikidata:WikiProject sum of all paintings/Possible_pantings Hanabusa Itcho] from among the list, and it is a fine and sophisticated listing. Before I go too far, my impression;

  • the starting point; which column do you advise me to click first and work on? I tried the first colum and Hanabusa Itcho, the person name.
  • About filtering; did the tool hit it since Q3109209) had not have Hanabusa Itcho as "other name"? I added this name to wikidata. I expected the tool to hit both Hanabusa Itcho (I) and Itcho II, as both are on wikidata.
  • which property make the tool to refresh and exclude some names from the list as done? --Omotecho (talk) 00:17, 1 November 2018 (UTC)
I have gone through your list], and updated related wikidata pages. One question;

Something odd with a couple of monumentsEdit

I'm adding zipcodes to many monuments with my bot and i've stumbled upon a couple of weird cases, mostly church towers like Tower of the NH church Andelst (Q17445135), where something goes wrong with the Commons categories/sitelinks that you've added some time ago. When my bot tries to add the zipcode it gets an error because the category is used in another item as well, in this case thats NH church Andelst (Q17445136). For now, the only way i seem to be able to solve this is by removing the category from both items, than re-adding it again to one of the items. I wonder how these sitelinks (that are apparently unique to an item) could even have been added in the first place... Husky (talk) 22:26, 14 November 2018 (UTC)

@Husky: technisch gezien zou dat helemaal niet moeten kunnen ja. Wel maf. Loopt het verder lekker met die import? Multichill (talk) 17:19, 18 November 2018 (UTC)
Ja hoor. Zit nu iets over de helft van alle monumenten. Dit zijn pas de postcodes. Het wordt denk ik interessanter zodra ik architecten en bouwactiviteiten ga toevoegen. Husky (talk) 00:06, 19 November 2018 (UTC)

Dataset suitable to import images in Commons?Edit

Hello, I ask you because you are experimented in the both projects Wikidata and Commons, I noticed that several datasets available in GBIF are under free license , e.g. The echinoderm collection (IE) of the Muséum national d'Histoire naturelle (MNHN - Paris), of course the interesting occurences are those with medias. Would it be relevant to import such datasets here? or what is the best way to import all the free images with the most possible structured informations? directly from Commons with a BOT?

This concerns several tens (hundreds?!?) of thousands of images, exemple with only two institutions : Yale University Peabody Museum datasets under CC0 1.0 licenses, and MNHN - Museum national d'Histoire naturelle not entirely but mostly under CC BY 4.0.

Manually this is a very big (unfeasible?) job... and I know what I mean because before to have noticed the dataset I have started to upload images directly from a museum website.

...or maybe it will be interesting to import such dataset when Structured Data for Commons will fully function and that each images will have potentially a corresponding item?

Interesting, I'll have a look at it. Multichill (talk) 21:10, 18 November 2018 (UTC)

Re: National Museum of Visual Arts of UruguayEdit

No problem Multichill, im working with that dataset right now but i concluded that i will need also this for doing a correct work. I'll import the authors and works database as soon as that id is approved. (btw, i'm hooked with openrefine, wikimedia should implement some kind of rehab).--Zeroth (talk) 19:04, 20 November 2018 (UTC)

Re: Possible paintingsEdit

Hi, when we met I was super tired and I am sorry to say I forgot what exactly to do if I found an article on that list which is an actual painting. Do I need to create a WikiData item and make it an instance of painting? Cheers, Ynhockey (talk) 09:42, 2 December 2018 (UTC)

Buenas Multichill. Estoy acostumbrado a que primero se pregunte y después cuando se llegue a un acuerdo se restauren las ediciones, no que ocurra al revés, que primero se borren mis ediciones y después se pregunte. De cualquier manera, soy profesor universitario y realicé un proyecto educativo en mi universidad para mejorar contenidos en la Wikipedia, y este año también en Wikidata. Los alumnos debían crear 2 elementos cada uno, pero en varios casos concretos entendieron mal las indicaciones y no crearon un artículo o un libro de una temática escogida previamente, por lo que tuve que pasar por todos los elementos creados borrando aquellos que eran manuales, artículos periodísticos, o elementos sin sentido o que no eran rastreables. Los casos que has revertido son estos y ya pedí su borrado. Un saludo. --Vanbasten 23 (talk) 16:21, 8 December 2018 (UTC)

Nederlandse fotografen geboren voor 1900 van RKDEdit

Beste Maarten, RKD heeft veel beroepsfotografen van voor 1900. Deze fotografen - uit de tijd dat het nog exclusief was - komen terug in veel verschillende archiefcollecties en het zou een waardevolle aanvulling zijn als we ze in wikidata zouden hebben. Ze zijn destijds beschreven in het boek Photographers in the Netherlands dat niet meer te verkrijgen is. Heb jij misschien gelegenheid om deze 3200 fotografen toe te voegen aan wikidata? Ze zijn vindbaar onder --Hannolans (talk) 01:50, 11 December 2018 (UTC)

Sea cucumbers of the genus Stichopus Brandt, 1835 (Holothuroidea, Stichopodidae) in Straits of Malacca with description of a new species (Q22675045)Edit

Hello, the above item is about a free scholarly article [1] of which I uploaded the images on Wikimedia Commons, see [2], this a scholarly article but we don't have such thing in Wikimedia Commons category trees. What would be the more appropriate categorisation in Commons? Christian Ferrer (talk) 11:33, 11 December 2018 (UTC)
