Merging itemsEdit

Hallo October wind,

For merging items, you may want to use the merge.js gadget from help page about merging. It has an option "Request deletion for extra items on RfD" to automatically place a request to delete the emptied page. This way of nominating makes it a lot easier for the admins to process the requests.

Hello Cycn, I used the Merged gadget in Special:Preferences#mw-prefsection-gadgets which says „Merge: Dieses Tool hilft beim Zusammenführen von Wikdata-Einträgen“. Isn’t that the same as the other gadget? What is the difference? --October wind (talk) 15:49, 14 March 2014 (UTC)
No, sorry, I used the RequestDeletion gadget this time. Now I see, what you mean. Merging wasn’t that easy this time, cause there was a mistake in it. --October wind (talk) 15:52, 14 March 2014 (UTC)
By the way, there’s a mistake in the German description of the Merged gadget in the preferences. It should say: „Merge: Dieses Tool hilft beim Zusammenführen von Wikidata-Einträgen“, Wikidata, not Wikdata. Can you fix that mistake anywhere? --October wind (talk) 15:55, 14 March 2014 (UTC)
I think you should be able to report it to the gadget's writers. Maybe on the German talk page of help page about merging. -      - (Cycn/talk) 10:36, 15 March 2014 (UTC)
