I am currently improving TTRPGs and board games items. July2019. Pmartinolli
FYI, you may want to do a batch find/replace on a bunch of descriptions you've done. Per https://www.wikidata.org/wiki/Help:Description#Capitalization, descriptions generally shouldn't be capitalized. "tabletop role-playing game" would be lower-case. on the other hand, "AD&D module" or "French dessert" would both be capitalized because names/proper nouns. As they note, these are for English descriptions.
- Oh yes! absolutely, do you know a tool that I can use for that ? or a query that list all the items I modified/created, I will do it by hand if I cannot batch find/replace ? thank you. @Ruthbrarian:
Please merge instead of blanking edit
Thank you for your work in maintaining Wikidata. I have a small suggestion to improve your future work. If you notice that two items are duplicates, please merge them instead of blanking one of them as you did with the page Q56285070. External sites use Wikidata identifiers, so it is important that we preserve the chain of references. See Help:Merge for more information on how to do this, and consider installing the Merge Gadget. Thanks! Bovlb (talk) 01:11, 8 October 2019 (UTC)
- Thank you for your suggestion, I understand the principles. I will do that for the other items I will encounter. @Bovlb:
Call for participation in a task-based online experiment edit
I hope you are doing good,
I am Kholoud, a researcher at King's College London, and I work on a project as part of my PhD research, in which I have developed a personalised recommender system that suggests Wikidata items for the editors based on their past edits. I am collaborating on this project with Elena Simperl and Miaojing Shi.
I am inviting you to a task-based study that will ask you to provide your judgments about the relevance of the items suggested by our system based on your previous edits. Participation is completely voluntary, and your cooperation will enable us to evaluate the accuracy of the recommender system in suggesting relevant items to you. We will analyse the results anonymised, and they will be published to a research venue.
The study will start in late January 2022 or early February 2022, and it should take no more than 30 minutes.
If you agree to participate in this study, please either contact me at email@example.com or use this form https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSees9WzFXR0Vl3mHLkZCaByeFHRrBy51kBca53euq9nt3XWog/viewform?usp=sf_link I will contact you with the link to start the study.
For more information about the study, please read this post: https://www.wikidata.org/wiki/User:Kholoudsaa In case you have further questions or require more information, don't hesitate to contact me through my mentioned email.
Thank you for considering taking part in this research.
Gutenberg ID edit
Greetings! All copies of works hosted by Project Gutenberg are editions of those works. Each edition should have its own data item, and not be attached to the general data item for the work. This is partly because each edition is different from every other edition, and has data unique and specific to that edition. For example, publisher, publication date, etc. are data values that will be different for each edition. The text and titles of editions also differ from one edition to another. Please see On the Duty of Civil Disobedience by Henry David Thoreau (Q119848767) as an example of a data item for a Gutenberg edition. --EncycloPetey (talk) 18:25, 22 June 2023 (UTC)
In this edit you added three different copies of Henry IV, Part 2 to the Arden Shakespeare, second series. But a quick inspection shows that these are not the text of the Arden Shakespeare, second series. At this point, it looks as though you are adding the IDs to data items indiscriminantly, and should revert all your recent edits to correct this issue. --EncycloPetey (talk) 18:32, 22 June 2023 (UTC)
- Thank you @EncycloPetey, I will apply these rules for the next contributions. Thanks also for detailing the specifications and the purpose of these rules, it will help me to contribute better for the next items as these contributions today were a first run.
