Hey, I saw that you created the query at Wikidata:WikiProject Human rights. Are you using that space? If not, could I move that query to a subpage: I am starting to collect a series about Human rights topics at: User:Sadads#Other_to_dos . It would be great to be able to centralize those somewhere. Cheers,

Syced (talkcontribs)

Feel free to move it! Thanks 🙂

The merged England and Scotland items

Hello Syced,


It's me, Granato31415: I just came back from a vacation and noticed your comment on my talk page. I'm very sorry I made such a mistake: it must have been while I was using version 2 of the Wikidata Game on my iPhone on a bus, since I didn't read the article summaries throughly.

Unfortunately, now that the merge has been made, I don't know how to undue that: nearly all my editing has been from Wikidata, and the website just says that unmerging items is very difficult.

Thanks for the message! Just create a new item for the Scotland one (for instance) and move all of the relevant statements and labels :-)

Hi, I've reverted your edit on Quarry Bay Station (Q838845), since the station is still open and was not demolished in 2002. (The statement on the Japanese Wikipedia is also probably off by two weeks, but is otherwise correct.) You may want to check your other edits from that period, since it's more correct to use connecting line (P81) with qualifiers to say that a line was disconnected from a station at some point.

Indeed, now I see that 廃止年月日={{駅番号|#009758|■}}[[観塘線]]:[[2002年]][[8月18日]] means disconnection from the 観塘線 line only, thanks for the tip! Syced (talk) 02:15, 17 July 2018 (UTC)

I just found your note about the 5th birthday meeting at Roppongi. Is it the same place as we met last year?

Hi Syced,

Please avoid dumping data into Wikidata if you believe that it's incorrect. You shouldn't rely on other people to care clean up your edits .

Luckily for embassies, it happens you did the correct thing, but P155/P156 should be used as qualifiers and one should think of a plan to correct it when adding it as statements.

Syced (talkcontribs)

Nothing at follows (P155) says that the property must always be used as a qualifier (the talk page says it "can"). Actually, two of the three property examples at that page illustrate how to use the property directly, see for instance how April follows March, and how The Two Towers follows The Fellowship of the Ring. That being said, now I understand the merits of using a series. If you believe that only qualifier usage is OK, then please edit the property's documentation, and I will delete the statements that do not follow the new rule. In the example of your second diff, what do you think would be the best thing to do? Create a new item for the series? Cheers!

I started enhancing them, I did a dozen so far, quite interesting, thanks!

Excellent! The bot looks in Category:Paintings (Q6009893), so in your case ja:Category:絵画作品. If you see a lot of non-paintings or other weird stuff showing up, it's probably because the category tree is incorrect somewhere. It might be a bit of a puzzle to solve that.

Any luck with this? Still quite a bit list from jawp.
