Mayor information on city items

1
Keren - WMIL (talkcontribs)

Hi Sjoerd,

I saw that you removed the claim that Femke Halsema is the mayor of Amsterdam Q727, with the reason that Q727 is the item about the city and the "burgemeester" is head of the municipality (Q9899). Has this reasoning been discussed and agreed on, or is this just your opinion? Because I don't see why that should exclude the information from the city item. The burgemeester is also mayor of the city.

Met vriendelijke groeten

Hi Sjoerddebruin, are you monitoring the OTRS queue for wikidata-oversight? I've sent in a request a few days ago and still have heard back nothing.

Sjoerddebruin (talkcontribs)

I've responded by e-mail.

Could you explain what you find unsuitable in the descriptions you are removing? If you are concerned about the inclusion of the ORCID ID, that was necessary to disambiguate them as there are many identical names in that group of items.

Sjoerddebruin (talkcontribs)

I’ve asked in the Telegram group and people agreed with me, I even think someone mentioned you there. These are not useful, they don’t help the reader or editor at all.

Gamaliel (talkcontribs)

I disagree. It is far more useful than a blank description. I keep finding these while manually searching Wikidata and the lack of descriptions make it very frustrating.

Hi Sjoerddebruin,

I think it's important to discuss mass reverts before carying them out. That was already mentioned at Wikidata:Edit groups but I will add that to the tool's UI to avoid that problem in the future.

Pintoch (talkcontribs)

(By discussing I mean discussing them with the author and ideally on wiki)

Sjoerddebruin (talkcontribs)

I thought the tool worked the same as the smart rollback script which marks edits as bot edits, sorry.

Pintoch (talkcontribs)

Because the edits are carried out with the user's account, that's not possible (not all users have a bot flag), but I agree that it would be a useful thing to have. I guess that means I would need to use a dedicated account like QuickStatementsBot. If you think that it is better, it should not be too hard to implement. (Another issue with the current system is that the OAuth tokens can expire, so the undoing can stop unexpectedly, which I think happened in your case. That's why I resumed the undoing from my own account when I saw that)

@Tagishsimon: as someone who is also adding ORCID descriptions and thus should also be in the loop about this as well. Mahir256 (talk) 14:03, 28 February 2019 (UTC)

Thanks Mahir 256. Sjoerddebruin, I spend a lot of time adding new items for en wikipedia articles on humans. To do so, it is necessary to search for items having the same name. Pretty much all such searches will pull up one or several ORCID person items, or CBDB items. Because these have no descriptions, it is necessary to waste time inspecting each of them to find out they are not the footballer/politician/whatever that you're searchig for. Adding descriptions including the ORCID ID or the CBDB id is clearly useful. Your assertion "These are not useful, they don’t help the reader or editor at all." is manifestly wrong. Please do not revert such edits.

Hi, I saw the semiprotection of the page, thank you. I'm an active user on es.wiki, but I don't have enough contributions here so I can't remove some bad words the recent vandalist user added, just before your contribution. These are: "Hombre ley. El Terco.". Can you remove those please? Thanks in advance.

Sjoerddebruin (talkcontribs)

There have been a lot of damaging edits, if I need to hide something where do we end? I don't think everything is covered by the oversight policy.

Link58 (talkcontribs)

You're right. There are so many vandalism edits from today (the controversy is around a few comments this person did which caused repulsion in social network media). But definitely those summaries need to be hide because all of them contain bad words on smaller or greater measure.

The value that you removed is well sourced. The value that you added is not sourced and leads to a broken link.


If the CV is of concern, then fix it.


Your action resulted in broken links in various Wikipedias.

Sjoerddebruin (talkcontribs)

Falsely getting accused of vandalism is also not very nice. I'm trying to keep constraint violations as low as possible, this broken property doesn't help much.

Ik doe mijn best, we hebben nog 5800 items zonder statements dus het gaat de goede kant op.

Multichill (talkcontribs)

Fijn om te horen. Zullen er wel een paar nieuwe bij zijn gekomen nu m'n bot weer heeft gelopen.

There have been a discussion about proposing a "marital status" property, but no one has proposed it so far. Would also be useful for indicating more than one marriage without privacy issues.

Thanks for the explanation!

Can you please hide visibility of edits by [[:Special:Contributions/अनिकेत रस्तोगी|अनिकेत रस्तोगी]]? All edits are abusing words.Sanjeev Kumar (talk) 17:20, 14 October 2018 (UTC)

Sjoerddebruin (talkcontribs)

Is there any personal attack or privacy issue?

संजीव कुमार (talkcontribs)

No, personal attack or privacy issue is not there but edits ares just abusing words in Hindi. If it doesn't need hiding, please ignore my message.~~~~

Sjoerddebruin (talkcontribs)

Does the same apply for the other user?

संजीव कुमार (talkcontribs)

Thanks!

BRPever (talkcontribs)

yes it does. Thanks!

Sjoerddebruin (talkcontribs)

Okay, done!
