Logo of Wikidata

Welcome to Wikidata, Ricordisamoa!

Wikidata is a free knowledge base that you can edit! It can be read and edited by humans and machines alike and you can go to any item page now and add to this ever-growing database!

Need some help getting started? Here are some pages you can familiarize yourself with:

  • Introduction – An introduction to the project.
  • Wikidata tours – Interactive tutorials to show you how Wikidata works.
  • Community portal – The portal for community members.
  • User options – including the 'Babel' extension, to set your language preferences.
  • Contents – The main help page for editing and using the site.
  • Project chat – Discussions about the project.
  • Tools – A collection of user-developed tools to allow for easier completion of some tasks.

Please remember to sign your messages on talk pages by typing four tildes (~~~~); this will automatically insert your username and the date.

If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask on Project chat. If you want to try out editing, you can use the sandbox to try. Once again, welcome, and I hope you quickly feel comfortable here, and become an active editor for Wikidata.

Best regards! -- Cheers, Riley Huntley 07:38, 7 February 2013 (UTC)


Hello, Ricordisamoa! I am just letting you know that I have added the autopatroller flag to your account, as you are a trusted user on Wikidata. If you have any questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to contact me or leave a message at the Project chat. Thanks, -- Cheers, Riley Huntley 07:38, 7 February 2013 (UTC)


Ricordati di metterli in cancellazione se svuoti degli item, se no rischiamo di perdercerli. --ValterVB (talk) 21:15, 24 February 2013 (UTC)

Hello Ricordisamoa. I haven't tried your script yet, but it occurred to me that if the user is setting a gender, they are implicitly declaring that the item is about a person (with 99.99% probability anyway). Thus it would make sense to set the property P107, entity type, to "person" (Q215627) if it is not already set. Would you consider this? Thank you for contributing useful scripts. I would like to do so myself, but javascript has changed a lot in the last 7 years. :-) Espeso (talk) 07:35, 25 February 2013 (UTC)

Me again. Regarding your authority control script, it would be a good tool to also create dynamic links for ISBN and OCLC (possibly others) as well. Would you consider that? As for targets of the links, Worldcat seems to a common, neutral choice. Thanks for considering, Espeso (talk) 08:19, 10 March 2013 (UTC)

Re:Richiesta di cancellazioneEdit

Non era la prima volta che facevo una richiesta di cancellazione, ma per la fretta ho fatto il copia incolla sbagliato. Grazie per avermelo fatto notare, ci farò più caso d'ora in poi! --DaniDF1995 (talk) 15:15, 26 February 2013 (UTC)

Re: Gadget for DREdit

Cheers, I didn't see that! It will be very useful. --Mark91it's my world 22:14, 28 February 2013 (UTC)


Hi, thanks for your tool would you please localize en:User:PleaseStand/userinfo.js for here I couldn't use it here. it is very useful tool and it can help user to know each other▬ Reza1615 / T 15:56, 4 March 2013 (UTC)


for DeletionHelper would you please add possibilty if number of [mark as done] are more that one we can edit page only by one edit like hotcat when you edit many cats it shows save button after click, it will save all changes with one edit. thanks▬ Reza1615 / T 15:13, 5 March 2013 (UTC)

I don't know what happened in this edit, but seems that something gone wrong. --Stryn (talk) 16:37, 5 March 2013 (UTC)

Also please add possibility to show are the items merged or not? as you said before, it is very important and vital▬ Reza1615 / T 16:26, 8 March 2013 (UTC)

I would be great if you could implement my request concerning edit summary. --Leyo 09:34, 9 March 2013 (UTC)

Do you mean that a sysop should be able to specify a message, in addition to {{Done}}? --Ricordisamoa 11:16, 9 March 2013 (UTC)
I am talking about the edit summary only. For this example I propose
/* Q1588821 */ tagging as 'done' (DH)
or similar. --Leyo 15:44, 9 March 2013 (UTC)
OK, OK. DeletionHelper is coming soon with a bunch of new features! --Ricordisamoa 15:51, 9 March 2013 (UTC)
Here is the summary of all improvements. Thank You. --Ricordisamoa 19:38, 9 March 2013 (UTC)
I updated the gadget and bene* edited some parts please check thisReza1615 / T 22:35, 9 March 2013 (UTC)

Authority ControlEdit

Several new authority control properties have been created, could you add the following to User:Ricordisamoa/AuthorityControl.js:

Regards, --Stevenliuyi (talk) 14:37, 10 March 2013 (UTC)

  Done --Ricordisamoa 14:56, 10 March 2013 (UTC)
I am operator of user:VIAFbot github, I think our bots are clashing on Authority control Items see diff . Can we please discuss so we don't overlap?I see it happenning for LCCNs, and we had a meeting about what exactly to do with Authority Control Wikidata:Requests for permissions/Bot/VIAFbot/Meeting agenda so I hope we can adhere to these norms and work together. Email me if you'd like isalix at g mail dot com Maximilianklein (talk) 23:21, 3 April 2013 (UTC)
Sure, we could share this task (maybe alphabetically separed), however Zolo asked me to stop my bot from running (forever?) --Ricordisamoa 07:55, 4 April 2013 (UTC)
P.S.: as per this discussion, I created a JS function to properly format the LCCN identifier (by removing slashes and, in case, adding zeroes) before adding it as a claim. --Ricordisamoa 08:00, 4 April 2013 (UTC)
I'm still trying to understand what exactly your bot is doing. Can you open source the code, so we can see it? It seems to me like you are doing a direct Normdaten import. Is that correct? My bot imports dewiki's Normdaten, enwiki's Authority Control, frwikis Autorite, and itwiki's Controllo di Autorita. Then it follows VIAF links and finds redirects if they exits. Then it side loads ISNIs using a file I got from them that relates ISNIs to VIAFs. So it basically seems like there wouldn't be much problem if you wanted to import the Normdaten, as long as you also managed to do VIAF redirect following, and then I could do the other languages. As for the Normdaten import you should just be aware that some of the community does not want to import all of the Property:P107, and you should see the discussion, because I got slapped on the wrist for it. Maximilianklein (talk) 16:16, 4 April 2013 (UTC)
The source is already available here; and no, SamoaBot does not import "main type (GND)", it simply loads the page content and searches for AC codes with some regular expressions. Update: I'm going to update the source, since I'm importing also IMDb codes. --Ricordisamoa 16:19, 4 April 2013 (UTC)

Replied on my talk page. Maximilianklein (talk) 22:43, 5 April 2013 (UTC)

Magyar Királyi HonvédségEdit

Please stop adding the Hungarian article iw: hu: Magyar Királyi Honvédség is about the royal Hungarian army after WW I, whereas other articles (German, Slovene, Italian) are about the royal Hungarian army in the period 1867-1918. 14:53, 13 March 2013 (UTC)

Strange! I don't understand hungarian, but the pages' titles are almost the same. I've noticed that here. --Ricordisamoa 15:57, 13 March 2013 (UTC)

You do not have to understand a word of Hungarian, just look at the dates in the infobox of the Hungarian article. The titles are really the same, but articles are about different armies. As far as I could ascertain the only equivalent of hu: Magyar Királyi Honvédség in other languages is de:Königlich Ungarische Armee. --IP 213 (talk) 18:52, 13 March 2013 (UTC)


Hello, your tool (LowercaseDescription.js) has some bug. I got the following error when using your tool: "wbEntity is not defined @". --Stryn (talk) 22:04, 13 March 2013 (UTC)

I've tried to fix it. Are you using it in the main namespace or in others? --Ricordisamoa 22:10, 13 March 2013 (UTC)
P.S.: now it requires ScriptTranslator --Ricordisamoa 22:10, 13 March 2013 (UTC)
No bugs anymore, but I still don't know how does this work. When or where I should see the link what script provides? --Stryn (talk) 22:17, 13 March 2013 (UTC)
Right to the description field, next to edit: a lcFirst link (but only if the first letter of the description in your language is Uppercase). --Ricordisamoa 22:20, 13 March 2013 (UTC)
Hmm... I still can't see it on any item. E.g. Q128109 and English language, link does not appear. Might be that I'm just too tired to see it, so I will go to sleep :) --Stryn (talk) 22:28, 13 March 2013 (UTC)
For me it's working (in English) --Ricordisamoa 22:30, 13 March 2013 (UTC)
...but in fact you do have to import ScriptTranslator (at least now) ;) --Ricordisamoa 22:38, 13 March 2013 (UTC)

Books task forceEdit

Dato che ti occupi di Authority control, magari ti interessa partecipare. BTW, ieri ci siamo incontrati a Milano con vari bibliotecari e wikipediani, e ci sono belle novità sul fronte degli autority control e cose varie anche per Se sei interessato, gente che ssa scrivere codice come te sarebbe fondamentale ;-) --Aubrey (talk) 15:26, 15 March 2013 (UTC)

L'interesse nel Controllo di Autorità è congiunturale alla creazione del gadget, tuttavia sono a disposizione per ulteriori servizi. Ma proprio non posso venire a Milano! --Ricordisamoa 19:14, 15 March 2013 (UTC)

Hi! Thanks the information. Unfortunately [[this]] is wrong choice with bad gang. Ciao! - Csurla (talk) 09:02, 17 March 2013 (UTC)


  Technical barnstar
I'm very impressed with the speed you made the keyboard shortcut tool I suggested, and your other tools as well. This barnstar is much deserved. Kudos! Jon Harald Søby (talk) 01:13, 24 March 2013 (UTC)

Thank you Jon Harald Søby, very much appreciated! --Ricordisamoa 01:16, 24 March 2013 (UTC)

Hello, is it possible to extend the tool on databases like Property:P345? Greets--CENNOXX (talk) 00:16, 25 March 2013 (UTC)

  Done, thanks for helping! --Ricordisamoa 00:25, 25 March 2013 (UTC)
There is a little bug, the IMDb identifier is for all four imdb links, not only the names:
Hope it's not hard to fix that.--CENNOXX (talk) 00:49, 25 March 2013 (UTC)
Should work now (tested with title and character links). Thanks again! --Ricordisamoa 00:57, 25 March 2013 (UTC)
Thanks.--CENNOXX (talk) 18:21, 25 March 2013 (UTC)

Next thing: Please take a look at the LCCN of Q61629. In Wikipedia LCCN nedds to be written in a special way and here in Wikidata it's now written in these two ways en:Wikipedia:Authority_control#LCCN. Your tool supports just one of them.--CENNOXX (talk) 18:21, 25 March 2013 (UTC)

Please take a look at this discussion: as a result, LCCN should now be formatted as the Proposal 1. --Ricordisamoa 18:29, 25 March 2013 (UTC)
Thanks for the info.--CENNOXX (talk) 20:41, 25 March 2013 (UTC)

MediaWiki coding conventionsEdit

Hi, I got this message on my talk page:

You changed the coding convention in MediaWiki:Gadget-AuthorityControl.js. It would be useful to use the MediaWiki coding conventions for JavaScript. --Fomafix (talk) 10:58, 27 March 2013 (UTC)

--Zolo (talk) 13:07, 27 March 2013 (UTC)

You are free to change the code using the coding conventions :-) --Ricordisamoa 13:11, 27 March 2013 (UTC)
Sure, I tried to do it, but as I know next to nothing about Javascript, I think it will be more useful to you than to me :). --Zolo (talk) 13:27, 27 March 2013 (UTC)
OK, but since I'm not familiar with them, let Bene* do that. --Ricordisamoa 14:22, 27 March 2013 (UTC)


Hello Ricordisamoa, I would like to propose you here as an admin, because I think, you are a reliable User, who could use the rights. Especially now, because some of your scripts are gadgets, and there are frequently things to fix. If you have no objections, I would request your adminship.--CENNOXX (talk) 13:48, 28 March 2013 (UTC)

No objections, go ahead! --Ricordisamoa 13:51, 28 March 2013 (UTC)

Deletion helperEdit

Hey Ricordisamoa!

Could you check your gadget, please? It recently often made mistakes like this one. Kind regards, Vogone talk 14:02, 29 March 2013 (UTC)

Well, it isn't my gadget anymore... it is a gadget, with all modifications and evolutions made by Jitrixis and Bene*, so I don't understand very much it. I'll try something, but maybe it's better to ask them for help. Regards, Ricordisamoa 14:14, 29 March 2013 (UTC)
I redirected Jitrixis and Bene* to this discussion. Furthermore, I have disabled the gadget, as it seems to guess randomly, who has deleted an item.(another example) Regards, Vogone talk 21:31, 29 March 2013 (UTC)
This part of the code was written by Jitrixis. --Bene* talk 16:47, 3 April 2013 (UTC)

Bot per ICCUEdit

Ciao Ricordisamoa, volevo chiederti se il tuo bot sarebbe disponibile, eventualmente, a inserire gli identificatori dell'ICCU nell'authority control. Non so bene ancora come faremo (e io non ci sarò da domani per una settimana), ma secondo me riusciamo a tirare giù una lista, tu che tipo di dati avresti bisogno? Ti va di iscriverti ad una mailing list di bibliotecari e wikipediani? Così ne parliamo. Grazie in ogni caso. --Aubrey (talk) 10:38, 30 March 2013 (UTC)

Certo, mi ha detto che è libero questo mese :) ... Ma da dove si prendono i dati (preferibilmente in formato JSON o XML)?
Per ora sta importando su Wikidata i vari VIAF, LCCN, GND e NDL dai template su WP (come it:Template:Controllo di autorità e de:Template:Normdaten) mediante delle espressioni regolari ad hoc; se invece la fonte è un'altra (il sito VIAF, se ho ben capito) devo sapere esattamente come. Regards, Ricordisamoa 11:26, 30 March 2013 (UTC)


Nice localization! Now it work on wiki with not same timezone format with UTC+0. Please add possibility for translation. Thanks in advance.  Ę-oиė  >>>  ™ 07:37, 31 March 2013 (UTC)

I'll do soon, thanks. --Ricordisamoa 07:44, 31 March 2013 (UTC)
Anyway, it's work on my commons.js @minwiki (wikipedia with UTC+7 timezone) with "mw.loader", the older (User:PleaseStand/User info) not work at all. But on idwiki it's not work with mw.loader, it's work locally with "importscript" command from my translating page with an error at this situation. Can you check it? Note: we don't have "plural" on a word at Indonesian language. Thanks in advance.  Ę-oиė  >>>  ™ 09:05, 31 March 2013 (UTC)
I recently updated it, check! And anyway, I'm preparing a deeper i18n. --Ricordisamoa 09:08, 31 March 2013 (UTC)
Now it not work at all with mw.loader at minwiki and idwiki. And why you remove that "sex" mark? It's nice fungsional, only Jimbo maybe forgot or something about his preference. :)  Ę-oиė  >>>  ™ 09:20, 31 March 2013 (UTC)

Well, the colored icon isn't so intelligent... it simply checks when you did your last contribution: less than 2 minutes = green, between 2 minutes and 1 hour = gray, over 1 hour = red. --Ricordisamoa 10:10, 31 March 2013 (UTC)
Oh I see. Anyway, can you make it longer for green? Maybe less than 10 minute? And how about my question about "mw.loader" not work for idwiki and minwiki but work on enwiki?  Ę-oиė  >>>  ™ 11:18, 31 March 2013 (UTC)
I made a lot of bugfixes, and now it should work (tested at! There was an error with the message in min language. --Ricordisamoa 11:59, 31 March 2013 (UTC)
Oke, Sir work to me too. How can I fix that error on min laguage, anyway? And work now on id wiki too. But still problem with user 43 tahun (7 years old user).  Ę-oиė  >>>  ™ 12:29, 31 March 2013 (UTC)
I've found the problem! In the Ajax query, user.registration is null, so the date is set by default to January 1st, 1970... any ideas on how to handle this situation? --Ricordisamoa 13:23, 31 March 2013 (UTC)
How about if to deff that option for user with that criteria? So if Ajax query found that, it will not shown. ex: "An editor and administrator with xxxx edit...etc"  Ę-oиė  >>>  ™ 13:40, 31 March 2013 (UTC)
OK, I already set up it to do this, check again! --Ricordisamoa 13:42, 31 March 2013 (UTC)
Great! Work fine on id-wiki. Can wait for possibility of translation. :) Thanks a lot, Sir.  Ę-oиė  >>>  ™ 13:52, 31 March 2013 (UTC)

Congratulations on your election as an Administrator.

As an Administrator, you are allowed into #wikimedia-admin, the cross-wiki coordination channel for Wikimedia administrators. Any member of the channel can invite you in temporarily, but you need an invite exemption from a channel operator to get in whenever you want. Please come to #wikimedia and ask for an invite.

Any admin from any project is welcome and it is a good place for cross-wiki coordination of vandal and spam fighting. It is also useful for new admins to contact more experienced admins in real-time to get help with the more complicated admin tasks.

Thank you

Bot on hold?Edit


I saw you added the IMDb identifier thing that I asked for here, which is great, but SamoaBot doesn't seem to be doing anything. Is it on hold for now? When can I expect it to be running? Gabbe (talk) 20:20, 5 April 2013 (UTC)

As per above, I'm not running SamoaBot at the moment, because it overlaps with VIAFbot. I and Maximilianklein are still looking for a solution. Please ask him. --Ricordisamoa 20:45, 5 April 2013 (UTC)
P.S. since SamoaBot isn't set up to import from other codes than IMDb, I'm running it. --Ricordisamoa 20:48, 5 April 2013 (UTC)
Splendid. Thanks! Gabbe (talk) 21:58, 5 April 2013 (UTC)
Here is a bug. You should verify that the "id" parameter is indeed a series of digits before adding them. Gabbe (talk) 11:43, 7 April 2013 (UTC)
(I've fixed this for now, both here and on the Dutch Wikipedia. Gabbe (talk) 11:45, 7 April 2013 (UTC))
Thank You, it's   fixed now! Moreover, I've set up the script to import IMDb codes from, too. --Ricordisamoa 12:09, 7 April 2013 (UTC)
I recently solved a bug that allowed importing IMDb codes from pages of non-films. --Ricordisamoa 12:24, 7 April 2013 (UTC)
Is the en_wiki imports based on having the {{IMDb title}}-template? Because that is used on a lot of pages that don't necessarily have anything to do with the film in question. For example, I see that SamoaBot added the identifier "tt0076319" to the page Q2530921, which is a musical. It should have added the identifier to the page Q446633, which is about the film. Gabbe (talk) 12:33, 7 April 2013 (UTC)
I rollbacked most of those edits (it was adding IMDb codes to persons!), and   fixed the bug here. Now it relies on en:Template:Infobox film. --Ricordisamoa 12:37, 7 April 2013 (UTC)
Here, for example, it added the identifier "tt0089907". The item Q3226427 is about the film series, rather than the individual films themselves. The identifier "tt0089907" belongs to item Q1475119. Gabbe (talk) 12:45, 7 April 2013 (UTC)
I   prevented the bot to add IMDb codes when the page contains several occurrences of en:Template:IMDb title. --Ricordisamoa 13:05, 7 April 2013 (UTC)
Fantastic! Thanks. Gabbe (talk) 13:15, 7 April 2013 (UTC)

On my home wiki, it's OK to remove warning messages, which are visible in the page history. However, the removal of block notices isn't allowed, and because the IP clearly isn't interested in using the page constructively, I've revoked talk page access.--Jasper Deng (talk) 02:01, 14 April 2013 (UTC)

You limited the translation of this page to only Italian. I want to translate it in French, but I can’t. — Ltrl G, 08:43, 15 April 2013 (UTC)

That was not him, that was me. The page isn't stable and changes almost every day since the policy isn't approved, yet. Only stable revisions should be marked for translation. Unfortunately, someone has marked this page for translation anyway and started to translate it to Italian. To prevent further translations, I restricted translation to that language.

SamoaBot adding duplicatesEdit

SamoaBot has added another duplicate IMDb identifier, see Q5287266. Gabbe (talk) 16:03, 15 April 2013 (UTC)

Another one, Q6543038. Gabbe (talk) 16:30, 15 April 2013 (UTC)
That's not my fault! SamoaBot at first imported VIAF/GND/LCCN/etc. but overlapped with VIAFbot, so I stopped it from doing this task; but now Dexbot is doing this task, too. And since SamoaBot caches a list of pages with the corresponding IMDb codes, some minutes before adding them to items, and Dexbot's edit preceded it by one minute... --Ricordisamoa 17:36, 15 April 2013 (UTC)
I didn't say it was your fault. I said that the bot behaved unexpectedly. You might want to have a word with Dexbot's operator. Gabbe (talk) 19:42, 15 April 2013 (UTC)
Never mind. I'm going to switch to Pywikipediabot this week: this will avoid any further problem. --Ricordisamoa 12:47, 17 April 2013 (UTC)

Hi Ricordisamoa. You recently said (Wikidata:Project_chat#Swapping_two_items) you'd take care of the item swap required after the messy change Q2066131.

Would you have a look at the format question at Property talk:P396? You edited the property some time ago. --  Docu  at 07:35, 25 April 2013 (UTC)

Ok, I'll do. --Ricordisamoa 09:04, 25 April 2013 (UTC)

I see that you recently deleted this item as being non-notable. (By the way, the deleted English Wikipedia page was about an unrelated person with the same name.) I don't dispute that James Loveland isn't notable enough for his own Wikipedia article, but he is notable enough to be listed in an infobox at w:Loveland, Ohio as the city's namesake. Do you happen to know if there will be a way for Wikidata to provide such information to Wikipedias without creating separate items, like the one you deleted? I'm not necessarily trying to get the item restored; I'm just wondering which feature I should wait for. :^) – Minh Nguyễn (talk, contribs) 11:15, 26 April 2013 (UTC)

Well, at the moment I'm rewriting my scripts for the Pywikipedia-rewrite branch (this seems to be recommended...) so SamoaBot is currently in breakdown. I succeeded to add claims (diff) and now it can even add more descriptions at once (see) but it fails to create references...

To allow your source code to be developed outside of the pywikipedia source direction, add something like

Suggestion for script UserInfo.jsEdit

Hi, Ricordisamoa.
How about if you use this than "duration-seconds" or "duration-years" or ect. for variable on your script? And how about to use this to make variable for ""less than one second"? Than how to translate the other variable, like "A", "old", "with", "Last edited", "and"?
Kind regards,  Ę-oиė  >>>  ™ 18:45, 29 April 2013 (UTC)

  • Now it uses "just-now" (diff);
  • what do you mean with the first sentence?
  • I believe "A", "old", etc. are a bit out-of-scope of MediaWiki messages, but I'll try to find something similar; in case, I'll adjust my script to match an existing messages that could do the job.
Regards, Ricordisamoa 19:29, 29 April 2013 (UTC)
Great! :) For the first sentence I mean are to change "duration-seconds" MediaWiki:Duration-seconds/en with MediaWiki:Seconds/en and so-on to make it shorten.
Btw I think you can remove variable "old" (example for lang "id")

So I spoke with some devs in #wikimedia-tech, and it took a weird API edit to force the contentmodel to change to Scribunto (the Lua format).

Aiuto su editclaimEdit

Sapresti mica come fare? Wikidata_talk:Creating_a_bot#editclaim_in_Pywikipediabot --ValterVB (talk) 12:59, 1 May 2013 (UTC)

Sono di nuovo qua a rompere le scatole :) finalmente sono riuscito a far funzionare il rewrite branch. Vista la mancanza di documentazione, sapresti indicarmi come aggiungere una proprietà con più valori e relative fonte? basta un semplice es. --ValterVB (talk) 13:48, 4 May 2013 (UTC)
Ecco qua:
wd = pywikibot.Site('wikidata','wikidata').data_repository() # repository di Wikidata
item = pywikibot.ItemPage(wd,'Q4115189') # la "Pagina delle prove"/sandbox
item.get() # necessario
if not 'p141' in # verifico che la proprietà non sia già presente (si può omettere in caso di valori multipli)
	reference=pywikibot.Claim(wd,'p143') # "importato da"
	reference.setTarget(pywikibot.ItemPage(wd,'Q11920')) # "Wikipedia in italiano"
	claim = pywikibot.Claim(wd,'p141') # "stato di conservazione IUCN"
	claim.setTarget(pywikibot.ItemPage(wd,'Q237350')) # "specie estinta"
	item.addClaim(claim) # aggiunge l'asserzione
	claim.addSource(reference) # imposta la fonte

- questo dovrebbe aggiungere stato di conservazione IUCN = specie estinta alla pagina di prova. Fammi sapere se hai ancora problemi :-) --Ricordisamoa 13:58, 4 May 2013 (UTC)

PS: non credo che Bene* sarebbe molto felice per questo cambio di framework... :-\ --Ricordisamoa 14:01, 4 May 2013 (UTC)

Grazie mille, funziona quasi tutto. Il problema che mi rimane è quello di aggiungere 2 valori alla stessa sproprietà con relative fonti. Es devo aggiungere la proprietà p161 con valori Q4547 e Q11920 entrambi con fonte p143 q11920, ma il primo valore lo aggiunge correttamente con fonte mentre il secondo lo aggiunge senza fonte e va in errore. --ValterVB (talk) 14:36, 4 May 2013 (UTC)

Aiuto scriptEdit

Ciao, volevo chiederti un aiuto. Ho creato uno script in JS abbastanza efficiente, il quale importa correttamente molti dei valori presenti nel template "Divisione amministrativa" (per adesso ottimizzato per i comuni italiani) scartando ovviamente i dati già presenti. Ho due problemi: non capisco come inserire le fonti (che sarebbe sempre e nonostante mi segnali che potrebbe aggiungere altre proprietà, noto che moltissime le "salta", diciamo che ne fa un massimo di 2 per elemento (e quindi devo eseguire più volte il codice...).

Vedevo che Pywikipediabot sembra molto efficiente ma non l'ho mai usato. Ho intenzione di usare lo script attuale per creare un elenco del tipo:

  • entità - proprietà - valore - tipovalore

per poi passare con Pywikipediabot, prendere questi dati, e inserirli (dopo un altro controllo se esistono già) con le fonti. Quando hai tempo potresti riuscire a creare uno script che funzioni in questo modo? Se vuoi ti passerò i miei dati in modo da smezzarci il lavoro. E se tutto andrà bene con questo template, implementerò anche il template Bio e altri!

Fammi sapere, ciao! --Viscontino (talk) 09:22, 2 May 2013 (UTC)

Se mi fai vedere il codice posso provare a capire come mai "salti" alcune proprietà; ma allora perché non ricreare l'intero sistema con Piwikipediabot? Con SamoaBot ho ancora qualche problema con le fonti (discussione), tuttavia per l'importazione del nome scientifico funziona benissimo. --Ricordisamoa 14:14, 2 May 2013 (UTC)
Ho risolto e modificato pesantemente il codice. L'unica cosa che mi manca quindi sono le fonti. Guardavo sulla "guida" in api.php ma non capisco cosa sia il parametro snaks... Cavolo. Riuscissi a sistemare questa cosa non ci sarebbe nemmeno bisogno di riscriverlo, a meno che sia in qualche modo necessario o più facilmente modificarlo in futuro. --Viscontino (talk) 14:46, 2 May 2013 (UTC)
Per le fonti in JavaScript non c'è nulla di meglio che draggableSitelinks; ecco un semplice esempio:
var snaks={
			"property":"p143", // Property:P143 = "importato da"
				"value":{"entity-type":"item","numeric-id":11920} // Q11920 = Wikipedia in italiano
		"entity":wgPageName, // ID dell'elemento
		"statement":"q7350801$5938F927-65D8-496B-B929-1ED94B060A00", // ID univoco dell'asserzione, è solo un esempio
		"snaks":JSON.stringify(snaks), // naturalmente il parametro "snaks" va convertito in stringa
		// verifico se ho avuto successo

--Ricordisamoa 15:25, 2 May 2013 (UTC)

Comunque, fonti a parte, la cosa migliore sarebbe senz'altro PWB; vedi anche la 7ª richiesta di approvazione per SamoaBot, ho proposto la proprietà "codice catastale" che ci farebbe comodo... --Ricordisamoa 15:29, 2 May 2013 (UTC)
Anche il codice ISTAT dovremmo creare. Grazie mille per il codice che mi hai passato. Non posso confermarti ancora di averlo implementato con successo visto che wikidata mi sta dando qualche problemuccio. --Viscontino (talk) 15:41, 2 May 2013 (UTC)

SamoaBot EditsEdit

Your bot adds wrong scientific names as well as wrong taxon ranks. Could you try to increase the reliability? Just having a lot of data waste in wikidata is not senseful. You could try to integrate some reasoning (e.g. adding information only if the same info is present in ALL linked articles), scientific names with 2 parts should be species level, 3 parts should be subspecies or something similar. I do not like the idea of needing a lot of human interaction to fix the avoidable errors bots made. FelixReimann (talk) 14:20, 10 May 2013 (UTC)

I don't see anything wrong with "Achyrolimonia trigonoides subtrigonoides" as taxon name... see the article; taxon rank is wrong (it's a subspecies) but there is no way to programmatically retrieve it from the infobox, and I still don't find it a big problem. --Ricordisamoa 14:28, 10 May 2013 (UTC)
Sorry, wrong item, see [1]. FelixReimann (talk) 14:33, 10 May 2013 (UTC)
You think it is not a big problem that you create wrong information (bot-based and thus in masses) just because you can't get the correct information from a taxo box? Really? I think no information is better than the wrong one. FelixReimann (talk) 14:35, 10 May 2013 (UTC)
That's why: [2]! It simply imported the infobox value, you cannot blame me if the infoboxes are incorrect! --Ricordisamoa 14:39, 10 May 2013 (UTC)
But this infobox vi:Achyrolimonia trigonoides trigonoides has always been correct. If checking also this linked language version, your bot could see that there is a difference. If we want to have wikidata as the basis of all wikipedias, we should at least try to have high quality sources. And if you import from wikipedia (not a very good source), then you could at least check if the different language versions agree. If all would be wrong then I would not have started this discussion. FelixReimann (talk) 14:52, 10 May 2013 (UTC)
The problem is, that this error does not happen once or twice but very very often. And this list shows only the errors visible due to the given constraint. So, yes, I blame you as the bot operator to mass add a lot of wrong information, because you rely only on the correctness of the interwikilinks (LOL!) and the information of a single wikipedia. Please, add some kind of error checking to reduce the creation of data rubbish. FelixReimann (talk) 15:21, 10 May 2013 (UTC)
Besides this, when do you plan to fix these and these errors your bot made? Do get an overview: Every entry at Wikidata:Database_reports/Constraint_violations/P225 in the section "Unique value" violations where the same item is linked twice or more times is due to the second error about User:Sk!d informed you. I guess around 3000 items are affected. FelixReimann (talk) 14:05, 11 May 2013 (UTC)
OK, it's removing duplicates now (example). --Ricordisamoa 14:13, 11 May 2013 (UTC)
Thanks. Most of the duplicate entries are removed now. However, about 350 are still missing. You find them at Wikidata:Database_reports/Constraint_violations/P225, most of them starting at "Bicava fuscicollis". It would be great, if your bot could remove them also. FelixReimann (talk) 07:50, 14 May 2013 (UTC)
Mind reading! Just a minute ago I set up the bot so that it can now fix up to 3-duplicate claims: see a preview here! --Ricordisamoa 07:55, 14 May 2013 (UTC)

Scusa per aver toppato il nick. :) Quando hai fatto, lasciami un messaggio (preferibilmente su it.wp), così poi avverto di inserire il link tuo. --Sannita - not just another sysop 15:19, 10 May 2013 (UTC)

Fa niente, Sannito  , ma come ho detto non sono molto sicuro della legittimità di un dominio alternativo e non ufficiale... --Ricordisamoa 15:30, 10 May 2013 (UTC)
Mica è colpa nostra se all'ICCU non sanno fare i link... Questa soluzione è provvisoria, ovviamente, ma meno male che t'è venuta in mente. Purtroppo, da quell'altro lato, passerà molto tempo prima che si giunga alla realizzazione del problema... --Sannito - not just another sysop 21:28, 10 May 2013 (UTC)

Vedremo. Piuttosto, il motivo per cui alla fine ti ho chiesto di sistemare la cosa è che non tutti i codici sono CFIV, tipo Q472756. Giusto per farti capire perché andava corretto il link. :) --Sannita - not just another sysop 21:48, 10 May 2013 (UTC)

Sure! --Ricordisamoa 11:09, 12 May 2013 (UTC)

„Kategorie:Senator der Republik Italien“ (Q8729208)Edit

Mi permetto di ricordare che nè in de. nè in it. nè in fr. il contenuto delle categorie si limita ai senatori della Repubblica come vorrebbe far credere il titolo di questo oggetto. Le tue azioni ritengo quindi un atto non condivisibile. Scopo di questo metodo berlusconiano sarà forse di evitare la collaborazione che viene da altri progetti. --Enzian44 (talk) 00:28, 13 May 2013 (UTC)

IMDb errorsEdit


Is it possible to check if there's more than one IMDb template on a page before importing its value? That would avoid errors like this one (the IMDb identifier added is that of Lena Endre).

Also, is it possible for the bot to check if the article itself concerns a film or actor? That would avoid errors like this (the IMDb identifiers belongs to a film about the organization). Gabbe (talk) 07:35, 15 May 2013 (UTC)

  Fixed, now it skips the item if:
  • multiple {{IMDb}} templates are found;
  • {{IMDb|film}} is found but no {{Film}} is present on the page
  • {{IMDb|nome}} is found but no {{Bio}} is present
Thanks, --Ricordisamoa 08:41, 15 May 2013 (UTC)


...this edit? --Ricordisamoa 14:52, 15 May 2013 (UTC)

Because ro:Categorie:Universităţi din Statele Unite ale Americii is an empty redirected category, therefore must not have interlanguage links. Place Clichy (talk) 15:17, 15 May 2013 (UTC)
OK, thanks! --Ricordisamoa 15:19, 15 May 2013 (UTC)


You added another link and marked this page for traslation. Did you select the "Do not invalidate translations" check box? If yes, why? If not, there's a bug somewhere because the Russian translation is shown as actual. --Michgrig (talk) 05:18, 16 May 2013 (UTC)

Yes, I did, because that link wasn't urgent IMHO. --Ricordisamoa 10:20, 16 May 2013 (UTC)
But I don't think that the matter here is urgency. When the translations are not invalidated, the translators will not know if something has been changed. Hence, the translation will be updated only if someone notifies the difference. My opinion is that this check box is only for the cases when a change in the English version does not influence the translations (e.g., a typo) --Michgrig (talk) 10:26, 16 May 2013 (UTC)
OK, I'll re-mark it for translation. --Ricordisamoa 10:28, 16 May 2013 (UTC)

Merge of itemsEdit

Thank you for the welcome message, and thank you for the execution of deletions! I proposed Q8889511 for deletion (because it contained less information) but you deleted Q7616339. Should I always merge to the element with the lower id? And did you change Q7616339 manually or did you use technical help? --Alexander.Meier (talk) 23:36, 16 May 2013 (UTC)

Yes, always the item with the higher Qid should be deleted. To update the other item, I simply added claims manually, and later used draggableSitelinks to add sources. But also my bot helped me a lot.   --Ricordisamoa 23:51, 16 May 2013 (UTC)
Thank you! --Alexander.Meier (talk) 00:00, 17 May 2013 (UTC)
Ricordisamoa, you are not quite right. In Help:Merge, it is written that it is acceptable to delete the item with lower Q-number if this needs less efforts. --Michgrig (talk) 08:30, 17 May 2013 (UTC)

The move "site link" tool could offer to move all other site links to the same item and then list the item for deletion. --  Docu  at 12:45, 17 May 2013 (UTC)
Dear Docu, I am alreay using "move" and "request deletion" tool. But I have to move all links one by one if there are more links + statements, aliases, labels and descriptions can not be moved by "move" tool. After moving all things one by one, I request deletion, write reason for deletion "merged with Q####". Instead if we have a tool where we just add Q#### and Q#### and 'click', it done. :) see some discussion here:[5] regards. --Nizil Shah (talk) 12:55, 17 May 2013 (UTC)


Ciao Ricordisamoa, come è andato il bot? Ha già finito? Domani volevamo far partire il bot di Cristian su Wikipedia, così prende tutte le property da wikidata. --Aubrey (talk) 11:07, 17 May 2013 (UTC)

Sì, già finito (stanotte)! E l'ho anche eseguito una seconda volta, in più con la risoluzione dei redirect. Qui trovi l'elenco delle voci senza un elemento collegato (avvisatemi se ne risolvete qualcuno) e qui le voci non presenti. In entrambe le liste ho segnato con "× 2" le voci presenti più di una volta (magari perché reindirizzamenti con titoli diversi). Per me RCantoroBot può partire, ma è meglio che verifichi preventivamente la presenza dell'asserzione in ogni elemento. PS: sarebbe opportuno gestire questa conversazione in maniera centralizzata, non credete? --Ricordisamoa 11:16, 17 May 2013 (UTC)
Grandissimo, gran bel lavoro.
D'accordissimo sulla gestione centralizzata (fra l'altro, avrei preferito scriverti delle mail, ma non ho tuoi contatti, quindi ho ripiegato per le talks). Direi di rimanere nel bar principale del progetto Bibliografia, dove puoi prenderti il giusto onore di dire qquello che hai fatto, e ripostare i link che hai dato a me.
Io intanto ho aggiornato questa pagina.
Dovresti fare un bel corso online per quel paio di botolatori interessati a lavorare con Wikidata, altrimenti il povero SamoaBot morirà di fatica :-) --Aubrey (talk) 12:00, 17 May 2013 (UTC)

Sì, lo sono, ma solo i burocrati possono flaggare i bot, e in ogni caso VIAFbot è già flaggato e ampiamente approvato, non credo ci siano problemi (pensa alle migliaia di elementi creati dal mio bot pur senza approvazione!) --Ricordisamoa 15:49, 21 May 2013 (UTC)

User:Ricordisamoa/SetGender.js still uses old values such as Q43445. Would you update it? --  Docu  at 11:22, 20 May 2013 (UTC)

No, I wouldn't update it anymore, please use Wikidata_Useful by Magnus Manske or simply let the job being done by bots. --Ricordisamoa 17:30, 20 May 2013 (UTC)
I'm asking as I came across an editor who might still be using it as he adds Q43445. --  Docu  at 18:34, 20 May 2013 (UTC)

adding a link to another language of same articleEdit

I am trying to add, in the side bar Languages, to a page in English, and actually also in French, a link to their cognate article in Arabic, I go to the "add" page, then I get unstuck. Will not accept the Arabic link. Can you advise? Thanks.  – The preceding unsigned comment was added by Ostera65 (talk • contribs).

If you click 'Details' in the error message you see, you'll get more info. Probably, there are two items about the same topic and they need to be merged. Ricordisamoa, I hope you do not mind me answering on your page :) --Michgrig (talk) 13:53, 21 May 2013 (UTC)


Hi. I would be busy till Monday but would be very happy if you work on merge.js. Can you uncomment entityselector parts on lines 389 and 432 of User:Ricordisamoa/merge.js? This is a good feature but I couldn't make it stable enough to use. Also please commit my last changes into yours (specially on div and label parts). I couldn't implement moving reference of claim but I think you can fix it. Thanks –ebraminiotalk 20:45, 22 May 2013 (UTC)

OK, I'll try, thanks. --Ricordisamoa 20:50, 22 May 2013 (UTC)
I merged almost of them (except the not working claim reference moving). Please make you great changes to User:Ebraminio/merge.js so I have access to fix minor code and UI things when needed :P –ebraminiotalk 09:19, 23 May 2013 (UTC)
Also validated on jslint (hope don't break any functionality, please test). It would be great later changes won't break jslint but it is not important if so :P –ebraminiotalk 10:25, 23 May 2013 (UTC)

Species namesEdit

Yes it would be good to add the taxon name as label for French by bot. Please do it also for Latin (since these are Latin names in the first place). Thanks. Ljubinka (discussion) 19:05, 23 May 2013 (UTC)

Automatic labellingEdit

You can make changes to the Spanish language. There is a Wikipedia in Spanish policy which requires that the name of the articles on living organisms have the scientific name. [6] --Kizar (talk) 20:54, 23 May 2013 (UTC)

To both of you:   set for Spanish, French and Latin. See an example, and thanks for helping. --Ricordisamoa 22:29, 23 May 2013 (UTC)

Hello Ricordisamoa, I want to let you know that I've disabled DeletionHelper by removing it from MediaWiki:Gadgets-definition. The gadget is already broken for quite some time and I've wait a long time before removing it from there. As you are the author of the script I hope you can fix it. Feel free to revert my edit at MediaWiki:Gadgets-definition if it's fixed. Regards, Wiki13 talk 09:28, 24 May 2013 (UTC)

Sorgente scriptEdit

Ciao :) Scusa il ritardo, ma ho avuto molto da fare. Ricordi lo script per bot che importa dati automaticamente da Wikipedia che avevo scritto? Su User:Viscontino/infobox_importer.js trovi il codice sorgente (che puoi convertire in Python se preferisci). L'ho usato facendo almeno 150 mila edit con questa versione e non ha mai dato problemi. Sono sicuro che tu saprai migliorarlo, non sono proprio un esperto in JS. Non avrò tempo da dedicare né allo script né a ViscoBot per un po', quindi ho pensato fosse meglio pubblicare il codice, magari sarà utile. L'unica cosa che chiedo è di tenere l'intestazione degli autori. Ciao ciao, buona domenica --Viscontino (talk) 08:15, 26 May 2013 (UTC)

  • PS - Quelle strane cose con i timer sono dovuti al fatto che non trovavo un modo per aggirare un memory leak che mi occupava tanti MB di memoria. Sono proprio un principiante :D --Viscontino (talk) 08:23, 26 May 2013 (UTC)

"fondato/creato da" e "scoperto da"Edit

Ciao! Rileggendo il tuo intervento nella discussione sulle proprietà di tipo tempo, mi è venuto in mente che la data di fondazione/creazione e quella di scoperta non sono, imho, proprio la stessa cosa. Cosa ne pensi a riguardo? Ti scrivo in talk per non intasare la discussione principale. ;) --Paperoastro (talk) 22:54, 29 May 2013 (UTC)

Hai perfettamente ragione. Purtroppo qualcuno un po' troppo zelante aveva già creato tutte le proprietà che attendevano in pending senza nemmeno fare la documentazione (ho dovuto ripescare le discussioni delle proposte in cronologia)! Fortunatamente, mancando il datatype "URL", ancora non importiamo massicciamente dati, anche se qualcuna di queste proprietà verrà cancellata. Penso che questo sia nei giochi, visto che il progetto è nuovo e stiamo ancora scoprendone le potenzialità... ;) --Paperoastro (talk) 07:03, 30 May 2013 (UTC)

Chemical element dataEdit

Hi, thank you for the proposition of using your bot to add data. But as the pressure will increase to provide data AND sources I think we have to start to work in that direction. I propose you to give you an excel file or a text file with some data for chemical elements (atomic number, atomic mass, symbol) with the source. Can you create the code which read the excel/text file and import automatically values and add the source in one operation ? My advice is to create a generic code for that task in order to provide that service to all contributors who want to add massive data sets with sources.

My proposition for data format is the next one:

  • Data file
symbol atomic number atomic mass source
P246 PXXX PYYY source
Q556 H 1 1.008 A1
Q560 He 2 4.003 A1
... ... ... ... ...
  • Source file
Periodic title author volume issue page date of publication DOI Language
P248 PZZZ PAAA P478 P433 P304 P577 P356 P407
A1 Q2425378 Atomic weights of the elements 2009 (IUPAC Technical Report) Michael E. Wieser, Tyler B. Coplen 83 2 359–396 12 December 2010 10.1351/PAC-REP-10-09-14 Q1860
A2 ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ...

We can merge both files but this will imply to copy redundant data to fill source parameters at each row if there is only one source for all data (like in this case see the official source from IUPAC).

There are plenty of details to solve (qualifier, numeric value with uncertainty,...) but I propose you to work on a real file so if you agree can you send me an email and I will provide you a excel/text file (what is the best for your code ?) and we can start discuting. Snipre (talk) 19:07, 31 May 2013 (UTC)

Bot adding of labelsEdit

Hello, I forgot to mention it earlier, but I think that your bot can safely add labels in French along with other languages, at least for taxons (if it is not too late). --Zolo (talk) 11:00, 1 June 2013 (UTC)

Hi! I implemented #getAllBackLinks and #replaceEntityLinks on merge.js that I think is useful for developing the tool for moving back links to an entity. It can be used for example by iterating each item claim and adding them if needed to be change on ActionsQueue by setClaim (something same #replaceEntityLinks had on this version). It would be great if you test them and develop moving claims UI if you like (because it is a bit confusing for me how to interact with user for moving backlinks).

Dear Ricordisamoa, thanks for your message. As my English isn't so good as my Portuguese, I Imagine that this autopatroller is the same that I received on Wiki.IT, right?

If you cannot, or you don't want, to answer me in Italian in this Wiki, it's better to write me in Wiki.IT, so I'll understand better, ok?

Thanks again for your gift!

Incomplete close of P100 deletionEdit

You closed this property for deletion discussion saying that you were going to whip up a bot and then delete it. It appears that this hasn't happened. Any updates? Sven Manguard Wha? 22:09, 12 June 2013 (UTC)

I filed a RFBOT some time ago for this same task; some discussion took place and several concerns were raised; the result was that these data should be particularly paired with appropriate sources, and we should avoid importing these properties from Wikipedia until a clear consensus for using them is reached on an apposite RFC. If you want to import them, it's better to do it from reliable external databases (as SamoaBot 32 and SLiuBot 2). --Ricordisamoa 09:11, 15 June 2013 (UTC)

Hi Ricordisamoa, I noticed you have a bot. I have created several hundred articles on nl.wikipedia that I would like linked via wikidata. Here is a category where you can find them all nl:Categorie:Planetoïdenlijst. Example: nl:Lijst van planetoïden 1101-1200 is already linked. I expect that the list of articles will keep growing to about 2000 in total over the next month. I hope your bot can help. Thanks in advance. Sincerely, Taketa (talk) 05:37, 25 June 2013 (UTC)

I filed a RFBOT just now. Regards, --Ricordisamoa 12:12, 25 June 2013 (UTC)
Hi Ricordisamoa, thnx for the effort. I am working on the same lists on Could you please also link them? See fy:Kategory:List fan planetoïden - Thanks in advance, Taketa (talk) 13:58, 29 June 2013 (UTC)

Hi, not to be nagging, but I am not seeing the interwiki links on the articles. Some people have started making them by hand now [10], on both projects, which is a huge waste of time, and loss of time for the Wikimedia project. Could you please run the bot. Sincerely, Taketa (talk) 18:21, 16 July 2013 (UTC)
Sorry, I had been busy... the bot has just now cross-linked "nlwiki ↔ enwiki ↔ fywiki". They all should be   OK now. Regards, --Ricordisamoa 17:55, 4 August 2013 (UTC)


Non saprei, sinceramente le categorie del tipo "Gardens" non le conoscevo, ma da quando si è deciso di unificare parchi e giardini mi pare che si sia sempre interlinkato a "Parks" (effettivamente le nostre categorie "Giardini" contengono più parchi che altro). Bisognerebbe parlarne su --Horcrux92 (talk) 06:45, 28 June 2013 (UTC)

Ciao, uso spesso il tool che permette di unire due pagine e mette in cancellazione quella rimasta vuota. Da ieri nel completare l'unione ho una segnalazione un errore. In effetti mi pare che l'unione viene effettuata correttamente ma la richiesta di cancellazione no. (se vuoi fare una prova... Q6711628 da unire con Q1775951).--Ermanon (talk) 10:27, 28 June 2013 (UTC)

Hai problemi solo con quegli elementi? Io l'ho utilizzato con successo anche dopo l'ultima modifica (ma con la cancellazione diretta). --Ricordisamoa 14:42, 28 June 2013 (UTC)
Ho fatto una nuova unione (io spunto le prime due caselle) e ho avuto nuovamente una segnalazione di errore "Error: http". Stavolta oltre all'unione effettuata è stata completata correttamente anche la richiesta di cancellazione. Dunque pare funzionare, anche se dà errore, boh... prima andava sempre tutto liscio... --Ermanon (talk) 15:48, 28 June 2013 (UTC)

Dear Ricordisamoa, this addion was unnessescary. The statement is sourced with stated in (P248) and IPNI author ID (P586). Additional sourcing with imported from Wikimedia project (P143) makes no sense. --Succu (talk) 14:44, 2 July 2013 (UTC)

As in the case of George Ware (Q5545885): a lot of botanist author abbreviation (P428) claims in the wikikpedias are wrong. I've checked them all a month before or so. Please do not import them. --Succu (talk) 15:07, 2 July 2013 (UTC)

Your Bot „sourced” about 2300 items that way. Unbelievable! --Succu (talk) 16:55, 2 July 2013 (UTC)

That was only a test, nothing official ATM. --Ricordisamoa 23:29, 2 July 2013 (UTC)

„Only“ 1653 remaining to revert. :( Ok some background information. I searched enWP, deWP and esWP for articles with botanist author abbreviation. I used different categories and infobox parameters. I followed my own advice an checked them against the IPNI database. A lot of claims - especially in enWP - were invented, misspelled or misformated (expample). I check this property at irregular intervals. Best regards --Succu (talk) 14:53, 5 July 2013 (UTC)

Setting sex after name (SamoBot 33)Edit

Hi, in the request for permission for SamoaBot 33 I gave a list of items which are not for individual persons, and therefore should not have sat sex or gender (P21), but I see now that many of these did get it anyway. How can that be, and could you please remove the sex or gender (P21) statements from these items again? Thank you, Byrial (talk) 02:24, 3 July 2013 (UTC)


Hi, It seems to me that all level 2 subcategories of sv:Kategori:Pseudophasmatoidea (at genus level) have a wikidata-entry duplicate to the corresponding category at ceb, and there may be more duplicates in these trees, or even a level deeper. Perhaps you can merge these botwise? Kind regards, Lymantria (talk) 19:42, 4 July 2013 (UTC)

Hi, I saw this and have a comment. I looked at these categories, and I can also follow overcategories with identical names up in the category tree to sv:Kategori:Animalia and ceb:Kategoriya:Animalia. I can make a program which recursively can find all subcategories from for instance Animalia with the same name in two languages, and based on that writes a list of items which probably should be merged. Then (if the list is large and looks correct) a boot can use it. Byrial (talk) 08:54, 5 July 2013 (UTC)
My supports a list format as User:Soulkeeper/dups, please create something like that (all items in sv:Kategori:Pseudophasmatoidea seems to have been already updated by EmausBot). --Ricordisamoa 08:58, 5 July 2013 (UTC)
Sure. Will it be OK to include interwiki links to the concerned pages and change the indention after the level of recursion like the example below? Byrial (talk) 09:24, 5 July 2013 (UTC)
I was referring to normal pages only, not categories. --Ricordisamoa 09:56, 5 July 2013 (UTC)
The list could include both categories (non-leafs in the recursively searched category tree) and non-categories (leafs in the tree) at the same time. Why not take it all at the same time, when I have to search the whole tree anyway? You did not answer about if the format with interwiki links is OK. Byrial (talk) 10:07, 5 July 2013 (UTC)
It's OK to have also categories, but I'd prefer a simpler listing, unindented and without interlinks (it does not matter, anyway). --Ricordisamoa 10:12, 5 July 2013 (UTC)
I will it do simpler without interwiki and indentation like below: Byrial (talk) 10:28, 5 July 2013 (UTC)

──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── Please strip "Level .." as well, thanks. --Ricordisamoa 10:32, 5 July 2013 (UTC)
The result is at User:Byrial/Category+name merge/sv-ceb-Animalia. Only 5 item pairs with articles, but close to 4000 with categories. Byrial (talk) 15:24, 5 July 2013 (UTC)

Can you do the same analysis for war taxons. As I proceeded with some taxons I've found a lot duplicates between sv, ceb and war. Also nl can be checked as they have a lot bot-created taxons (usually under latin names). Infovarius (talk) 09:26, 7 July 2013 (UTC)

Please see User:Byrial/Category+name merge. Suggestions for other start categories and Wikipedias are welcome. Byrial (talk) 10:22, 7 July 2013 (UTC)

richiesta a chi conosce un paio di linguaggi di programmazioneEdit

Ciao, Samoa, Andyrom su voy mi ha chiesto un favore e io ho pensato a te. Hai tempo e voglia? se sei almeno disponibile a sentire che ci serve, ti espongo la questione poi decidi: In pratica si tratta di far girare un programma tra un gruppo di pagine che includono un determinato template e recuperare i valori scelti per un determinato parametro. Fammi sapere, caso mai ti spiego meglio.--Wim b 00:49, 29 July 2013 (UTC)

Certo che mi interessa, sputa i dettagli! --Ricordisamoa 20:04, 31 July 2013 (UTC)
Grazie, in pratica mi ha chiesto Andyrom se potevo recuperare tutti i possibili casi inseriti nel parametro "tipoarea = " del Template:Area protetta, ma io sarei dovuto andare a tentoni, te che magari conosci un po' di linguaggi puoi giostrarti meglio. Senti Andyrom se avesse "richieste particolari". PS: se poi hai voglia e tempo, potresti guardare se riesci ad allineare questo? (con safari lo vedo benissimo così, con FF lo vedo bene senza il "bottom:2px" e con chrome lo vedo sfalzato in entrambi i modi, ma questo solo per approfittarmene e se hai voglia)--Wim b 20:34, 31 July 2013 (UTC)
Corretto, mi servirebbe una sorta di pivot, ossia, lista di tutte le ricorrenze con associato il numero di occorrenze. --Andyrom75 (talk) 20:57, 31 July 2013 (UTC)
@Wim b: Per la barra di progresso, molto meglio sfruttare i gradienti CSS invece delle immagini bitmap: potrebbe risolvere il problema da subito. --Ricordisamoa 21:20, 31 July 2013 (UTC)
Ci avevo pensato anche io alle sfumature col css e avevo fatto anche delle prove senza salvare (e infatti non si vedeva nulla speravo di potre risolvere con un paio di aggiustamenti sul template invece di rimettere mano al CSS. Proverò così.--Wim b 23:07, 31 July 2013 (UTC)
Fallito miseramente, è uguale alla fine, le due barre non si incontrano e restano sfalzate anche usando il css per fare la sfumatura, come immaginavo... :(--Wim b 23:35, 31 July 2013 (UTC)

Setting imported from for sex after VIAF and patronymicEdit

I noticed that your bot adds Imported from Wikipedia sources for items which already have imported from VIAF and/or patronymic sources (example: Q315237). I think such statements do not add anything new, and bot should analyze existing sources carefully before trying to add Wikipedia as source. --EugeneZelenko (talk) 13:56, 31 July 2013 (UTC)

I agree that the bot could avoid adding sources when "imported from Wikimedia project (P143)Virtual International Authority File (Q54919)" is present; instead, claims that are "imported from Wikimedia project (P143)full name (Q1071027)" can be potentially wrong, so Wikipedia helps checking them. --Ricordisamoa 21:15, 31 July 2013 (UTC)
Please note, that I referred to patronymic, not name. For Russian and Belarusian (not 100% sure about Ukrainian), patronymic ending is different for men and women. Same is true for some of Russian and Polish last names. Lithuanian last name have even tree types: men, married and not married women. --EugeneZelenko (talk) 03:30, 1 August 2013 (UTC)

Good idea, that would be very helpful. I'm actually working on the list of pages without interwiki links on the Italian Wikivoyage. Some bot created lots of new data items instead of adding the interwiki links to existing items. --Thingol (talk) 06:36, 3 August 2013 (UTC)

nuove proprietà "Emigrato in" e "Emigrato in data"Edit

Ciao Ricordisamoa,

Ho visto il tuo parere sulle proprietà in oggetto e che avrei piacere di creare. Grazie del consiglio! Sono d'accordo con te sul fatto che "Emigrato in Data" debba essere una sotto-proprietà della proprietà "Emigrato in". Non ero sicuro si potesse fare...

Volevo chiederti se ora occorre cambiare la proposta delle proprietà oppure se puoi già creare tu la proprietà dato che ho inserito le due proposte a luglio e sostanzialmente nessuno ha votato in modo non favorevole.

Grazie 1000!! --LucaBiondi (talk) 14:45, 3 August 2013 (UTC)

Task 25 MeSHEdit

Hey Ricordisamoa! Do you know when you will run Task 25 which should import the MeSH codes from the diseases infobox. --Tobias1984 (talk) 14:32, 4 August 2013 (UTC)

I've put it   On hold until I find a better source. Can you provide one? --Ricordisamoa 15:15, 4 August 2013 (UTC)
I don't know if a bot could navigate through this tree [14], but that would be the direct source of all the codes. (watching your page) --Tobias1984 (talk) 22:06, 4 August 2013 (UTC)
There is also another way a bot could navigate that database. It could just try out every MeSH ID and then compare the heading with the wikidata entry. The bot just always has to add 1 to the last number of the URL. Examples:
The bot could pick up MeSH ID and MeSH code (called tree number on the database). --Tobias1984 (talk) 21:31, 8 August 2013 (UTC)

Hi. The property P411 proposed by you does not seem to me clear.

Scusa, non avevo visto la risposta, comunque ho risolto all'incirca come hai scritto te (e rileggendo la mia domanda è già tanto che tu sia riuscito a darmi una risposta): Grazie ancora per la buona volontà e complimenti anche per lo script del rollback, mi hanno brontolato dicendo "è fatto troppo bene" ;).--Wim b 00:54, 18 August 2013 (UTC)
Grazie per la fiducia   e preparati ad altri "brontolii": grazie a queste modifiche, il pulsante "rollback" simulato funziona anche nei User contributions, nelle Ultime modifiche (anche correlate) e negli Osservati speciali. PS: puoi segnalarmi la discussione contenente "è fatto troppo bene"? ;-) --Ricordisamoa 18:16, 19 August 2013 (UTC)
In pratica ho visto (sopratutto dai commenti e dal campo oggetto), che stai cercando di emulare in tutto e per tutto il RB vero e proprio, bravo, alla fine chiedendo a te, una soluzione per il jquery si trova sempre. Poi, per la serie WNF: ma il progetto che dicevi mesi addietro in anteprima esclusiva per wy a che punto è? Io sto sviluppando un progetto amatoriale al massimo, diciamo pure arrangiato, se poi ti annoi, ti trovo io il lavoro ;)--Wim b 22:58, 19 August 2013 (UTC)
Quel progetto in particolare è   On hold, tuttavia ne ho altri in sviluppo. --Ricordisamoa 11:49, 20 August 2013 (UTC)
Scusa, ho letto ora il testo piccino. Era una discussione privata su IRC, quindi non posso linkarla, puoi fidarti però :). PS: visto che ho letto che nella tua talk il problema è proprio il fatto che assomiglia troppo al RV classico, perché non risolvi il problema aggiungendo semplicemente il link allo script tra parentesi come fa Twinkle (esempio) o almeno aggiungi una variabile opzionale che permetta di farlo? Anche perché lo script è fatto bene ed è comodo da usare è un peccato che sia fatto troppo bene--Wim b 23:15, 21 August 2013 (UTC)
È proprio questo il punto: è progettato per non differire minimamente dal RB vero e proprio; del resto non mi hanno mai sgridato su o Commons, dove lo uso assiduamente e proficuamente. Tuttavia, è possibile che una variabile di personalizzazione venga abilitata a breve. PS: se mi parli del «progetto amatoriale al massimo» saprò tenere il segreto   --Ricordisamoa 14:05, 22 August 2013 (UTC)

Quest'ultimo serve soltanto quando l'unione non è completa, e bisogna effettuare comunque delle modifiche aggiuntive. --Ricordisamoa 17:31, 17 August 2013 (UTC)

Wikidata maintenance property proposalEdit

Hi Ricordisamoa, I would appreciate if you could take a look to this property proposal. The idea is to use it to add statements to items associated with a category. What do you think of it? Maybe it could be used for checking constraints. Btw, I was going to create the property "formatter url", but at the moment it is not possible to add properties to property pages. Do you think it would be possible to change this?--Micru (talk) 21:56, 17 August 2013 (UTC)

  • I've commented there;
  • I think it could be technically possible in the future to add properties to property pages, though I see it's being opposed by some users, and developers would set it to "low priority". We could discuss it at WD:DEV.
--Ricordisamoa 08:55, 18 August 2013 (UTC)
Thanks for your comment and the TB! (1) The "maintenance property" would be quite difficult to implement, better to do it with templates, same method as the {{Constraint}} template, but with similar parameters to the "array gadget". Would that be practicable? (2) There is the suggestion to use "formatter URL" as a property for Q items, then that item could be used with the (proposed) "type of catalog" and catalog code (P528). When using those two properties together, do you think it would be possible to generate a link storing the "formatter url" property in the item used as "type of catalog"?--Micru (talk) 17:23, 19 August 2013 (UTC)

it.wikivoyage templatesEdit

Hey Ricordi, thanks very much for using your script wizardry on the large list of Sunda articles. As you are also a contributor on Italian Wikivoyage, I wondered if you'd be interested in fixing some templates that appear to have been moved across from Wikipedia without their interwikis being take out. Some have as many as 83 interwikis, which on Wikivoyage is of course impossible. They are partly listed here. There is no rush though. Just wanted to make you aware of the issue. Thanks again. Delsion23 (talk) 23:17, 28 August 2013 (UTC)

I was already aware of the issue, and I'm planning a bot run to fix it. Regards, --Ricordisamoa 00:37, 29 August 2013 (UTC)


Girando fra gli item mi sono reso conto che fra unioni, spostamenti ecc. molte etichette sono andate perse o non sono state inserite, credi sia fattibile o che sia utile, far passare il bot in modo che inserisca tutte le etichette mancanti per ogni lingua con il titolo della pagina presente nell'eventuale link alla rispettiva wiki? (se non sbaglio un bot sta facendo questo ma solo in francese). Magari se c'e' qualcosa fra parentesi metterlo nella descrizione. Un altro lavoro da fare credo sarebbe inserire in tutti gli item delle categorie,template ecc. è un/una ...... di Wikimedia, in molti item è presente in molti altri no. scusa se lo scrivo subito a te ma spiegarmi in inglese non mi è molto facile --Rippitippi (talk) 16:55, 29 August 2013 (UTC)

Non è così semplice gestire le specificazioni tra parentesi, inoltre i link a Wikivoyage sollevano problemi: perché i link a Wikipedia dovrebbero avere la precedenza per le etichette? E sono ancora valide le diciture "categoria di Wikipedia" e "template di Wikipedia"? Comunque i bot lavorano duro, entro qualche settimana le etichette saranno ristabilite. --Ricordisamoa 17:29, 29 August 2013 (UTC)
Perché la nomenclatura di voy è spesso messa a caso quella di wiki almeno è ragionata e comunque le voci di voy sono si e no tremila sul milione e passa di wikipedia,da una parte si deve partire meglio di non aver nulla scritto sull'etichetta, no non sono valide appunto ho scritto Wikimedia Rippitippi (talk) 19:58, 29 August 2013 (UTC)

Dear Ricordisamoa, may I ask you to have a look at this piece of Javascript: User:FelixReimann/taxobox.js. I have no Javascript knowledge, thus, I hope to get your help as you created already a lot of useful gadgets. I do not understand why the function given to $.getJSON() does not show the test output of line 24. Both surrounding test outputs (line 12 and 26) are shown. Thanks you in advance.  — Felix Reimann (talk) 13:34, 30 August 2013 (UTC)

  fixed: this.api was not defined; moreover, remember that $.getJSON is asynchronous, so the debug text will be appended at the bottom, after the others. --Ricordisamoa 13:54, 30 August 2013 (UTC)
Thanks a lot! It's working now.  — Felix Reimann (talk) 14:33, 30 August 2013 (UTC)

Pagina di aiutoEdit

per favore dato che il mio inglese non è eccellente puoi modificare la pagina di aiuto per quanto riguarda lo strumento di merge [18]?, non è affatto chiara, da come si legge sembra che il tool faccia tutto in automatico, mentre devono essere spuntate sia la casella per richiedere la cancellazione che quella di unione all' ID più basso per ottenere quello che si scrive li. Rippitippi (talk) 15:16, 31 August 2013 (UTC)

Mass mergeEdit

Hoi, I have identified (in theory and can substantiate this) a really large number of duplicate Wikidata records. My best guess is that there will be over 100.000. You have been pointed out as being the merge guru. Do you know of a way in which this can be accomplished ?

All these items have to do with the taxonomy of animals and insects. Most of them will have taxoboxes referring to items that are named exactly the same. I am in the process of writing a blogpost about the problem. GerardM (talk) 22:22, 1 September 2013 (UTC)

The need for a mass merge in #Wikidata
My script can merge pairs of items formatted as in User:Byrial/Category+name merge/sv-ceb-Animalia or User:Soulkeeper/dups, by only comparing the page titles, and delete them via my sysop account. Many new items are being found in the latest database dumps, and you could help this way. Thanks, --Ricordisamoa 07:12, 2 September 2013 (UTC)
Could you please provide some updates? --Ricordisamoa 21:38, 10 September 2013 (UTC)


Ciao, qui ho rimosso il collegamento alla voce Brahmanesimo per poterla collegare qua. Ora però non so come si faccia a rimettere il collegamento al Thesaurus. --Spinoziano (talk) 14:08, 3 September 2013 (UTC)

Tecnicamente hai effettuato un'unione incompleta.
  1. Vai nelle preferenze e abilita il gadget "Merge";
  2. in Brahmanism (Q3643561) dovrebbe apparire un messaggio "might have been merged with...": clicca sull'icona;
  3. spunta le caselle "Unisci sempre nell'elemento con minore numero Q" e "Richiedi la cancellazione degli elementi svuotati in RfD";
  4. premi "Unione".
Tutte le etichette, le descrizioni, gli alias e le dichiarazioni mancanti verranno trasferiti in Brahmanism (Q889766), quindi il gadget richiederà automaticamente la cancellazione di Brahmanism (Q3643561) attraverso WD:RFD.
Avrei potuto farlo io (anche con cancellazione diretta) ma preferisco insegnare!   --Ricordisamoa 15:48, 3 September 2013 (UTC)
Ho seguito i 4 punti, spero vada bene. La seconda casella che ho spuntato prima di cliccare "Unione", però, riportava semplicemeente la scritta ""Richiedi la cancellazione degli elementi svuotati" e non ""Richiedi la cancellazione degli elementi svuotati in RfD". Riguardo all'insegnare... beh, hai ragione... come diceva Confucio: "Se vedi un affamato non dargli del riso: insegnagli a coltivarlo". --Spinoziano (talk) 12:21, 4 September 2013 (UTC)
Tutto perfetto! Il gadget ha automaticamente trasferito l'etichetta e gli alias, il Thesaurus BNFC e la fonte, dopodiché ha richiesto la cancellazione, che io ho prontamente eseguito.  
PS: L'etichetta della casella era stata cambiata nel frattempo da Sannita, ma con poche differenze. --Ricordisamoa 12:57, 4 September 2013 (UTC)

Lua questionEdit

Hi there. Thank you so much for you help recently. This actually has nothing to do with Wikidata, but I have another question maybe you can help me with, since I know you are good with Lua-- is it possible to use Lua from Wikivoyage to access image data such as dimensions (width or height in pixels) from image files on commons (or their respective copied-info page on WV)? This would be very useful for us, so we could automatically police banner images which are not the right size or aspect ratio. Something where we could, for example, use calls like these:

{{#invoke:imagedata|width|Example.jpg}} would return 172
{{#invoke:imagedata|height|Example.jpg}} would return 178

Do you have any idea about this? Thanks in advance. Texugo (talk) 01:44, 23 September 2013 (UTC)

See bugzilla:52522. Regards, --Ricordisamoa 13:44, 7 October 2013 (UTC)

Richiesta pagina specialeEdit

Ciao samoa, visto che ti diverti e che sei preciso quando programmi, avresti voglia di aiutare una piccola comunità come può essere wikizionario a gestire una lunga lista come questa? Non so se è possibile, ma se lo fosse, si potrebbe automatizzare in modo che sia più facile modificare, cancellare e aggiungere codici e lingue nuove, magari in una pagina speciale fittizia? Perché così sta iniziando a diventare complicato modificare quella lista. Se vuoi/puoi, ci (ma sopratutto mi) faresti un grosso favore, altrimenti, non importa, non voglio fare il noioso per forza--Wim b 13:49, 7 October 2013 (UTC)

Che ne dici di usare mw.language.fetchLanguageName? --Ricordisamoa 15:19, 7 October 2013 (UTC)
hum e come funzionerebbe? A me basta che alla fine funzioni allo stesso modo. --Wim b 16:10, 7 October 2013 (UTC)
L'ho provato e a grandi linee funziona, ma alcune lingue non le conosce ed altre non le traduce, per adesso lo SwitchLang è ancora l'nica soluzione praticabile, quindi si ritorno alla prima domanda, sarebbe fattibile una pagina di modifica tipo questa con roba come questa in modo da salvare i cambiamenti in poco tempo e facilmente minimizzando all'estremo l'inconvenienti di percorso?--Wim b 16:52, 7 October 2013 (UTC)
Si potrebbe, ma... in cosa Lua non ti soddisfa? E se il template si limitasse a fornire un fallback per le altre lingue? --Ricordisamoa 19:19, 7 October 2013 (UTC)
alcune lingue non le riconosce (esempio: abs), altre le scrive errate (esempio vec che scrive "véneto"), altre ancora non le traduce (esempio "simple" che mi scrive "Simple English"), per le lingue più conosciute, esempio italiano, tedesco, inglese ecc, va bene, ma quando vai nel "difficile" perde i colpi. Lo script usato è questo. Per il resto, mi sono perso da fallback in poi...--Wim b 21:51, 7 October 2013 (UTC)

Du coup, je m'interroge sur la fiabilité de ce genre de bases de données. Deuxièmement, j'y ai trouvé à mon avis des erreurs, par exemple ici :, où la nationalité indiquée d'Ulli Lust est allemande, alors qu'elle est selon moi autrichienne.

Import date of birth (P569) and date of death (P570) from German WikipediaEdit

Hello Ricordisamoa,

some months ago I filed a request (Wikidata:Requests for permissions/Bot/FischBot 4) to import date of birth (P569) and date of death (P570) from the German Wikipedia. Because of missing sources the task was not approved. Since there is no absolute need for sources anymore the task could be approved now. Since I have not yet written all the code I want to ask you if you can run this task. Your bot is already importing date of birth (P569) and date of death (P570) from English Wikipedia and was approved for this task (Wikidata:Requests for permissions/Bot/SamoaBot 26), so maybe you can also import the dates from German Wikipedia? I would help you to write a parser or give you information about how to parse the dates. Regards --Pyfisch (talk) 20:20, 15 December 2013 (UTC)

Hello Pyfisch, my bot does not import date of birth (P569) and date of death (P570) from the English Wikipedia articles themselves. Instead, it uses a prepared list by Magnus Manske. You could ask him to generate a list from the German Wikipedia, then we two could add those data using --Ricordisamoa 14:52, 16 December 2013 (UTC)
Hello Ricordisamoa, thanks for your fast response. I found this Toolserver Service, that provides date of birth/death dates extracted from German Wikipedia: [24]. This tool is using its own database. Probably we can get the dates from it. --Pyfisch (talk) 19:09, 16 December 2013 (UTC)

Importation of Author: linksEdit

Hi! I'm already running a bot that adds sitelinks, labels and some authority control ids from Author: pages using "Wikipedia" parameter of various Author templates. I've already run it in sv, ca, es and pl Wikisources and I've something ready for fr, en, de, it and uk Wikisources (I plan to run them tomorrow).

@Tpt: it uses existing interwiki links, and the "Nome della pagina su Wikipedia" parameter in it:s:Template:Autore; it can also remove interwiki links (only in ca, el, it, no and pl at the moment). I am going to run it in other namespaces too. --Ricordisamoa 19:40, 15 January 2014 (UTC)

Il consenso si è trovato da tempo e le proprietà sono tutte disponibili da mesi. Se la ritieni necessaria, posso impegnarmi a rivedere la tabella delle professioni purché sia precompilata cogli elementi restituiti da quelle ricerche Special:ItemByTitle. --Nemo 11:53, 18 January 2014 (UTC)

data su it.wikiEdit

ho proposto di integrare data sul template bio, dato che è inutile avere un db se poi non viene usato da nessuna parte.. mi piacerebbe dicessi la tua [25]  – The preceding unsigned comment was added by Rippitippi (talk • contribs).

Request for feedback on my GSoC'14 proposalEdit

Hi Ricordisamoa,

I am planning to work on the project titled "Tools for mass migration of legacy translated wiki content" this summer under Google Summer of Code. I have drafted a proposal for the same over the past few weeks. This project is going to help the translation adminstrators like you in a great way, as it would completely automate the tedious manual task of preparing a page for translation and then importing the translations into the Translate extension. You can check the proposal page for detailed information on how I plan to accomplish this.

As you would be an end user of this tool, it would be great if you could go through the proposal and provide feedback/suggestions. Your feedback would definitely help me improve the proposal as well help in creating an even better tool. You can do the same on the discussion page of the proposal or reply here, whichever is convenient for you. I look forward to hearing from you! Thank you!

P.S: I need to submit the proposal to Google by March 19, 2014.

ciao ho visto che hai fatto la modifica che avevo richiesto diverso tempo fa solo che c'e' un problema avevo iniziato a fare la sostituzione in modo semi-automatico dato la non risposta alla richiesta, quindi ora ci sono 200-300 item credo con la professione doppia tipo Q12061484 --Rippitippi (talk) 21:50, 14 March 2014 (UTC)

@Rippitippi:   fatte 319 modifiche. --Ricordisamoa 23:33, 14 March 2014 (UTC)
Ti ringrazio --Rippitippi (talk) 01:39, 15 March 2014 (UTC)

Aggiungere una fonte ad una dichiarazione già esistenteEdit

Ciao, sto cercando (con il core branch di pywikibot) di aggiungere una fonte ad una dichiarazione già presente. Mi pare di capire che ti è già capitato di fare qualcosa del genere. Se non ti richiede troppo lavoro, potresti mettere un esempio di codice? Grazie. --Sbisolo (talk) 11:56, 17 March 2014 (UTC)


import pywikibot

site = pywikibot.Site('it', 'wikipedia')
repo = site.data_repository()
item = pywikibot.Page(site, 'Barack Obama')

source = pywikibot.Claim(repo, 'P143') # "importato da"
source.setTarget(pywikibot.ItemPage(repo, 'Q11920')) # "Wikipedia in italiano"

if 'P31' in # "istanza di"
    for claim in['P31']:
        # eventuali controlli sul valore
        claim.addSource(reference, bot=1, summary=u'import a source')
        print 'fonte aggiunta!'

vedi Wikidata:List of wikis/python per un elenco di possibili "fonti". Se serve un esempio più complesso o specifico (aggiunta della fonte se corrisponde a un valore da Wikipedia, ecc.) sono a disposizione. --Ricordisamoa 15:27, 17 March 2014 (UTC)

Grazie mille, sono riuscito ad aggiungere la fonte. Ero già vicino alla soluzione ma mi ero perso un dettaglio fondamentale. --Sbisolo (talk) 11:22, 18 March 2014 (UTC)


Qui: oltretutto adesso l'account del tool su toolserv è scaduto e quindi non è più raggiungibile e quindi inutilizzabile. Se tu avessi voglia di scrivere veramente quel tool su labs sarebbe grandioso. --Wim b 00:59, 21 March 2014 (UTC)

Hi, the deletion of an article on Wikipedia does not imply at all that the item has to be deleted. This item is an author and a clearly identifiable mathematician, author of a PhD thesis, so it can have its item. Please undelete it.TomT0m (talk) 18:17, 13 April 2014 (UTC)

I have already translated the summaries to Czech and Slovak. Will the bot use them? It still doesn't. Matěj Suchánek (talk) 15:22, 15 April 2014 (UTC)

I periodically update my bot's translated summaries. Voilà! --Ricordisamoa 19:27, 15 April 2014 (UTC)
Thank you, well done! I wanted this because the summaries didn't look well. By the way, how long do you think it will take to import all pages? One week? Matěj Suchánek (talk) 20:04, 15 April 2014 (UTC)
I think much has been already done (mainly from the Italian edition, which is the 3rd by size), but now I need to work on the linkage between the smaller languages and their respective Wikipedias – which is made via apposite and wiki-specific templates – and I don't know how much it will take. You can also ask User:Ladsgroup, whose tireless (though not infallible) Dexbot has made a very hard work. Finally, a substantial part of the articles will have to be connected by hand ;-) --Ricordisamoa 20:16, 15 April 2014 (UTC)
BTW, the bot framework requires the Slovak summary to have 3 PLURAL variants. --Ricordisamoa 20:20, 15 April 2014 (UTC)
Thought it's same as in Czech. I will read about the Slovak grammar and update it soon. Matěj Suchánek (talk) 20:24, 15 April 2014 (UTC)
I have expanded the rules so the second and the third string are same. It is an interesting case because it may be same as in Czech but in Czech the third argument is not required... Matěj Suchánek (talk) 21:14, 15 April 2014 (UTC)
@Matěj Suchánek:Actually, the rules for Czech are the same. Trying to remove interwiki links for q:cs:Voltaire throws an error. You'd have to complete the Czech variants (when number of interwikis to remove > 4). Thanks, --Ricordisamoa 21:25, 15 April 2014 (UTC)

Please import interwiki links of frws, dews, ruws, huws from enwikisource.--GZWDer (talk) 05:01, 29 April 2014 (UTC)

  • I have imported them manually. So no need for you to work.--GZWDer (talk) 05:35, 29 April 2014 (UTC)
I had just started my bot... I didn't see you were so much hurried :-) --Ricordisamoa 05:43, 29 April 2014 (UTC)

Proposed wikisEdit

Buongiorno! Thank you for your support for NonFreeWiki; it is much appreciated, especially since your Global-wiki idea is also fantastic. Arrivederci! Green Giant (talk) 13:09, 1 May 2014 (UTC)

Bot permissionEdit

Hi, I need to reply to this permission faster. please check Wikidata:Requests for permissions/Bot/Fatemibot :) thanks. H.Fatemi 05:10, 7 May 2014 (UTC)

Hi! I identified a lot of Wikimedia disambiguation pages with additional properties. To my understandig they are a major source of errors. Integration (Q224621) Calculus (Q400405)     

have been added by SamoaBot long time ago.
Do you have some time to scan the pages I edited and create a list with the following classes:

a) WD items of class Wikimedia disambiguation page with additional statements
b) WD Wikimedia disambiguation page where other items are linking to these pages as a target
c) labels with lower case letters; to my understanding de-capitalization does not apply to Wikimedia disambiguation pages
d) at a later stage: "normal" WD items where pages from WMF projects are local disambiguation pages

The last has a higher degree of complexity.
Here a list with some test items, some of them might be solved today:

full name (Q1071027)     , Scott Fitzgerald (Q1198946)     , pedagogue (Q1231865)     , L'Omnibuso (Q12351104)     , Hans Kraus (Q1270232)     , Narfi (Q1273321)     , discoverer (Q1344452)     , maiden name (Q1376230)     , evolutionary theory (Q1382537)     , self-control (Q1405524)     , Paul Murphy (Q1408623)     , Gerhard Schröder (Q1512513)     , Wikimedia set index article (Q15623926)     , embezzlement (Q157833)     , judge (Q16533)     , John Ferguson (Q1700052)     , goalkeeper (Q172964)
