Proposed Deletion of Property P5400 (GeoNLP ID)

Likibp (talkcontribs)

Hi,I wanted to reach out because you've been involved with the GeoNLP ID property (P5400) as its creator. There's been an update to GeoNLP, leading to a new system of identifiers (GeoLOD IDs), which has prompted a proposal to delete the old GeoNLP ID property due to incompatibility issues.

You can find the discussion here: Wikidata:Properties_for_deletion/P5400. Likibp (トーク) 14:05, 5 November 2023 (UTC)

Greetings. I've proposed the Mixer game ID property for the deletion, you might be interested in the discussion.

Hello, Thanks for letting me know! Indeed, I have not found anyone to hand this over yet. This was due to a problem with conflicting SQL migrations, which is now solved. The tool should catch up with Wikidata in the coming hours. Thanks for your understanding.

New tool for EditGroups

Summary by Pintoch

tool added to EditGroups

Nicereddy (talkcontribs)

Hello! I'm building a new tool called Multitrack Drafting for editing music items on Wikidata. I'd like it added to EditGroups, and based on Wikidata:Edit groups/Adding a tool I'm assuming I should ask on your talk page :)

  • name of the tool: Multitrack Drafting

You can see an example edit on Test Wikidata here: https://test.wikidata.org/w/index.php?title=Q232164&oldid=652482


Pintoch (talkcontribs)

Hi! Thanks for developing this nice tool! I have added it to EditGroups, so if everything goes well its edits should be tracked now.

Nicereddy (talkcontribs)

Thank you very much!

Please do not add translations in one language to a data item in a different language. Editions and translations should be separate data items from the original. Edits like this are incorrect. --EncycloPetey (talk) 01:02, 17 May 2023 (UTC)

Pintoch (talkcontribs)

Hmm, I am confused. What makes you think I made this edit? I do not think I have anything to do with it.

EncycloPetey (talkcontribs)

The links provided from the edits gave me the option to "Contact the Author" which directed me to you. --EncycloPetey (talk) 16:30, 17 May 2023 (UTC)

Pintoch (talkcontribs)

Ah, this "Contact the author" link means "Contact the author of the EditGroups tool". EditGroups is a tool that lets you undo batches of edits, including this batches. Most edit batches shown in the EditGroups tool have not been made by me, but by other Wikidatans. In this case, the edit was made by Reinheitsgebot, a bot run by Magnus Manske. You should rather contact him.

EncycloPetey (talkcontribs)

The edit was made by the bot, but I would hope that the person who made the Match would be considered the Author. I've contacted the person who runs the Bot and he says it's just running the matches people made in the match tools. I can't access the match because the connection times out.

Pintoch (talkcontribs)

I agree with you that those edits should rather be made via the account of the person who made the match, or at least have their username written in the edit summary. Back when I was an admin I blocked QuickStatementsBot on similar grounds. I am no longer active in Wikidata but I would recommend you bring up the topic with Magnus and with the wider community (on Project chat, for instance).

Reply to "Full work at URL"
DragonflySixtyseven (talkcontribs)

Hi. A few years back, you helped set up National Cartoonists Society member ID (P5622); however, the NCS has completely overhauled their website, and all the entries are now broken. To make matters worse, they're broken in two different ways: living cartoonists and dead ones don't have the same URL structure. So the fix that I'm able to implement for dead cartoonists doesn't work for live ones, and just makes things worse (see my contributions).

I can recognize regex, but I can't use it. Can you help fix this? Thanks.

Pintoch (talkcontribs)

Sorry, I am no longer active on Wikidata.

Hi, since you've created P6978, perhaps you could tell why it conflicts with the United States of America, since there are immigrants from Scandinavian countries who have been granted American citizenships, and not renounced their previous one (unless it were a requirement for some reason). I find it strange that obtaining citizenship in another country, or having dual citizenship of any country for that matter, would changed the nature of the name being Scandinavian? ~~~~

Pintoch (talkcontribs)

Hi! I have no particular opinion about this property, as my creation was just an administrative action concluding a property proposal. You might want to discuss this with whoever added this constraint instead.

TherasTaneel (talkcontribs)

Ah, I see. Hmm, seems that person hasn't been active in about a year, oh well... thanks though :) TherasTaneel (talk) 16:23, 7 March 2023 (UTC)

Pintoch (talkcontribs)

I am sure you could also ask 1Veertje who proposed the property and is very much active :)

1Veertje (talkcontribs)

I didn't put in the restrain on it not being applicable to US citizens. I only barely can see as a somewhat sensible flag that the property is used for it's intended purpose that requires double checking. That would be the case for everyone who isn't Norwegian or Danish though (it's mainly those two Scandinavian countries that do this but we needed a not overly long label).

J'ai demandé la suppression de Kalray SA sur wikidata. Elle est en duplication avec Kalray qui est utilisée sur les articles fr et en.


Pintoch (talkcontribs)

Merci pour le signalement ! Dans ce cas, plutôt que de demander la suppression, c'est préférable de fusionner les deux éléments. Ça peut être fait via le menu "More" à côté de "View history", dans la partie haute-droite de la page de chacun des éléments.

Désolé, je ne suis qu'utilisateur de wikidata, j'ai encore du mal avec l'aspect méta de wikidata.

Pintoch (talkcontribs)

okay, je peux le faire pour toi.

GPZ Anonymous (talkcontribs)

ça marche

Pintoch (talkcontribs)

C'est fait - n'hésite pas à annuler ta demande de suppression pour éparger du travail aux admins.

Bonjour, j'ai quelques problème avec la réconciliation aujourd'hui. L'outil semble sauter des lignes. Ça sauter comme ça 10 des 38 lignes de mon csv à la ligne nom, ce qui est embêtant.

Test avec OpenRefine avec problème de réconcilation.
Pintoch (talkcontribs)

Merci pour le rapport ! Améliorer la gestion des erreurs côté OpenRefine fait partie des choses que je voudrais faire dans les mois à venir, mais je n'ai malheuresement pas de capacité pour améliorer la réconciliation Wikidata elle-même. Pour mitiger le problème, une solution temporaire consiste à lancer le service de réconciliation soi-même, par exemple avec Docker. La documentation en ce sens a été récemment améliorée ici: https://gitlab.com/nfdi4culture/ta1-data-enrichment/openrefine-wikibase

Fralambert (talkcontribs)

J'ai trouvé une solution en sélectionnant les éléments non réconciliés et en allant dans action -> créé un nouvel élément pour chaque cellule. Ce qui m'a permis de continuer avec mon csv. Merci du conseil, je vais le lire.
