Thanks a lot! I always do a research before I create items, this time I didn't found the first item that you deleted. It's a little bit difficult to find some items because there isn't in your own language and when you write it in English and you make a little mistake in writing you still don't find it. Thanks for the correction! Restu20 01:30, 1 November 2012 (UTC)

Definitely! Maybe we can make some suggestions to devs for the implementation of such features. :-) Restu20 01:35, 1 November 2012 (UTC)


Why did you delete it? Was it something wrong with the entry?--Ymblanter (talk) 06:56, 1 November 2012 (UTC)

Q4918 was created as a duplicate of it, but with a lot more entries. As there is no merge currently, I deleted the one with less links, and moved them over. See conversation above Reedy (talk) 16:05, 1 November 2012 (UTC)
I do not think this is a good idea, the earlier number should have been kept. Would you please restore Q1244, I will convert it into smth else.--Ymblanter (talk) 16:07, 1 November 2012 (UTC)

Main Page in British EnglishEdit


May I please draw your attention to the discussion at Wikidata talk:Main Page#Redirects, in case you are not already aware of it. It appears that your action logged as:

07:13, 27 October 2012‎: Reedy moved page Main Page to Wikidata:Main Page without leaving a redirect

...has had the unfortunate side effect of some individuals "losing" the Main Page, if their preference language is "British English". I added a redirection for the Talk page, so please accept my apologies if this simply complicates the situation.

I only did what the instructions of the Wikidata developers told me to do. I suspect part of the problem is whatever is on MediaWiki:Main_Page/en-gb. But until another bug is fixed, this can't be trivially checked via a web browser. I'll just delete the redirect later. Reedy (talk) 14:50, 3 November 2012 (UTC)

The actual problem is Wikidata not handling fallbacks. It's the same reason that even if an item has a label set in English, you don't see it on en-gb. Exactly the same problem with pt, and pt-br. Reedy (talk) 14:53, 3 November 2012 (UTC)

So I've heard people say that Wikimedia stuff somewhat resembles H2G2, but somehow I don't think that this is exactly what they meant, hm? --Yair rand (talk) 05:37, 22 November 2012 (UTC)

Thank you for taking care of my wrong batch from yesterday.

Just so you know: I'm going to restart the other interrupted batch, which works fine. Then I will work again on my lists and make a new one from scratch -so you'll probably see me on the same items, but with good edits.

Could you please confirm to me that all errors are gone?

Thanks. Arpyia (talk) 12:50, 11 February 2019 (UTC)

No problem. Mistakes happen, I just wanted to stop that one before it propagated much further. The other batch did indeed look fine. According to [5] 4028 out of 4034 edits were undone by quickstatements. I'm guessing the rest were undone by other people. Reedy (talk) 18:42, 11 February 2019 (UTC)
