  • Community portal – The portal for community members.
  • User options – including the 'Babel' extension, to set your language preferences.

Q30 nl labelEdit

Re your edit to United States of America (Q30)'s Dutch label: Note that labels do not need to be unique. It's not a problem for multiple items to share the same label. --Yair rand (talk) 21:33, 12 April 2020 (UTC)

Also the English label says "United States of America", and not just "United States". And so it should. Pommée (talk) 21:40, 12 April 2020 (UTC)
Same comment, see Help:Label to learn how label works on Wikidata. Cheers, VIGNERON (talk) 20:20, 7 May 2020 (UTC)
The readers should be able to distinguish the items on the next higher level. Have a look at the other languages: all show the distinction between singles and doubles. And for a good reason. Pommée (talk) 20:39, 7 May 2020 (UTC)
No and not with parentheses, again see Help:Label. Cheers, VIGNERON (talk) 21:04, 7 May 2020 (UTC)
I was going to do a clean-up of labels of all items of Wikidata to remove the uppercase initials and the parentheses, should I clean all items except the tennis tournaments and leave them with wrong labels? Cdlt, VIGNERON (talk) 09:45, 17 May 2020 (UTC)
Yes; please, leave tennis labels unchanged. Dutch, French and Polish labels use parentheses, where English uses a dash and German uses a slash. Pommée (talk) 13:58, 17 May 2020 (UTC)
Ok, I don't understand why you wish for incorrect labels but I'll respect your wish. PS: it's not just the parenthses, a lot of label start wrongly with an uppercase instead of a lowercase, I'll let you look into into. Cheers, VIGNERON (talk) 08:54, 20 May 2020 (UTC)
I don't wish incorrect labels; only it's you who thinks that they are incorrect. You can read here that not all parentheses are disambiguation. Disambiguation is used for two or more items that in real life have the same name. In this case – singles and doubles tournament parts – both items really have different names. Only: the various wiki's use different interpunction: English wiki uses – and German wiki uses /. You don't remove the singles/doubles distinction there either, do you?
