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)Reply[reply]

Autopatroller edit

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)Reply[reply]

Cancellazioni edit

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

js edit

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)Reply[reply]

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)Reply[reply]

Re:Richiesta di cancellazione edit

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)Reply[reply]

Do you mean that a sysop should be able to specify a message, in addition to {{Done}}? --Ricordisamoa 11:16, 9 March 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I am talking about the edit summary only. For this example I propose

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)Reply[reply]
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)Reply[reply]
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)Reply[reply]
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)Reply[reply]
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)Reply[reply]

Magyar Királyi Honvédség edit

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. 188.230.173.143 14:53, 13 March 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]

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)Reply[reply]

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)Reply[reply]

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.

Hi!

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)Reply[reply]

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)Reply[reply]
P.S. since SamoaBot isn't set up to import from nl.wiki other codes than IMDb, I'm running it. --Ricordisamoa 20:48, 5 April 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I recently solved a bug that allowed importing IMDb codes from pages of non-films. --Ricordisamoa 12:24, 7 April 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]
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)Reply[reply]

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

PYTHONPATH=$PYTHONPATH:~/pywikipedia/
export PYTHONPATH

to a file that gets run on login, usually ~/.bashrc - this avoids typing the export PYTHONPATH part in each time you log in. Naturally, change paths to match your installation.

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"?

  • 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)Reply[reply]
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.

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 item.claims: # 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)Reply[reply]

Aiuto script edit

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 it.wiki) 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)Reply[reply]

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)Reply[reply]
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)Reply[reply]
Per le fonti in JavaScript non c'è nulla di meglio che draggableSitelinks; ecco un semplice esempio:
var snaks={
	"p143":[{
			"snaktype":"value",
			"property":"p143", // Property:P143 = "importato da"
			"datavalue":{
				"type":"wikibase-entityid",
				"value":{"entity-type":"item","numeric-id":11920} // Q11920 = Wikipedia in italiano
			}
	}]
};
$.post(
	mw.util.wikiScript("api"),
	{
		"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
		"token":mw.user.tokens.get("editToken"),
		"action":"wbsetreference"
	},
	function(data){
		// verifico se ho avuto successo
	}
);

seems, that the edits which add labels don't have the botflag, so it isn't a bug.--CENNOXX (talk) 17:18, 6 May 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I'm trying to fix it and doing some edits; ping me if I'm wrong. --Ricordisamoa 17:49, 6 May 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]
It seems to be fixed now... PWB requires bot=True for every action... --Ricordisamoa 18:01, 6 May 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]

RFD script edit

Hi! I think your RFD script may have broken with the recent change to editing sections in MW. Please see my attempted change here Which doesnt seem to have fixed anything. meta:Change_to_section_edit_links ·Add§hore· Talk To Me! 10:40, 7 May 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Well, for DeletionHelper I used some code from my SectionTools, and this edit fixed anything. Try refreshing your browser's cache. --Ricordisamoa 10:55, 7 May 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Anyway, with this the BeneBot* should do it by itself... --Ricordisamoa 10:56, 7 May 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Mineo edit

Hey Ricardi. Hope you don't mind, but I've re-added confirmed to Mineo (talkcontribsnew itemsnew lexemesSULBlock logUser rights logUser rightsxtools)'s account, since I didn't see "implicit member of: autoconfirmed users" at UserRights. As of this Gerrit change (pursuant to bug 46461), 50 edits are required to get autoconfirmed here, and Mineo only had 24. — PinkAmpers&(Je vous invite à me parler) 15:10, 8 May 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Don't mind, I had already noticed it (I wasn't aware of that change). I hope Mineo will soon hit 50 edits!
— But please call me Ricordisamoa, or simply Ricordi. --Ricordisamoa 15:48, 8 May 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Hehe sorry, Ricordi. And yeah, I hope so too, since in light of bugzilla:48086 the confirmed flag doesn't do much good at the moment. — PinkAmpers&(Je vous invite à me parler) 00:15, 9 May 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]

SamoaBot Edits edit

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)Reply[reply]

I don't see anything wrong with "Achyrolimonia trigonoides subtrigonoides" as taxon name... see the nl.wiki 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)Reply[reply]
Sorry, wrong item, see [1]. FelixReimann (talk) 14:33, 10 May 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]
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)Reply[reply]
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)Reply[reply]
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)Reply[reply]
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)Reply[reply]
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)Reply[reply]
OK, it's removing duplicates now (example). --Ricordisamoa 14:13, 11 May 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]
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)Reply[reply]
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)Reply[reply]

„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)Reply[reply]

IMDb errors edit

Hi!

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)Reply[reply]

  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)Reply[reply]

Why... edit

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

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)Reply[reply]

Wikidata:Administrators edit

Hi

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)Reply[reply]

Yes, I did, because that link wasn't urgent IMHO. --Ricordisamoa 10:20, 16 May 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]
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)Reply[reply]
OK, I'll re-mark it for translation. --Ricordisamoa 10:28, 16 May 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Merge of items edit

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)Reply[reply]

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)Reply[reply]
Thank you! --Alexander.Meier (talk) 00:00, 17 May 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]
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)Reply[reply]

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)Reply[reply]

Update edit

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)Reply[reply]

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)Reply[reply]
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)Reply[reply]

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)Reply[reply]
