Welcome to Wikidata, Teolemon!

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.
  • Contents – The main help page for editing and using the site.
  • Project chat – Discussions about the project.
  • Tools – A collection of user-developed JavaScript tools to allow for easier completion of some tasks.

If you have any questions, please ask me on my talk page. 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! --Tobias1984 (talk) 19:08, 7 September 2013 (UTC)

Problems with CPV in Mix’n’Match

PKM (talkcontribs)

Can you please fix the problems with the CPV in Mix’n’Match?

  • According to the property constraints at Common Procurement Vocabulary (P5417), the CPV identifer should exclude the hyphen and check digit.
  • Automatch is attempting to match French labels to EN labels in Wikidata.

WikiProject Wine - Property proposal

LiaFla (talkcontribs)

Hi, I am really interested in the project, I would like to collaborate with you ... I had a chance to think about a describing wines model. How about using properties (already existing or to be created) that follow the tasting sheet? (e.g. color, flavor, hectares of the production area, alcohol content, use, combination with food ...) In addition, to the description of the grape variety, I was thinking to one for the type of wine and one for the producer ... I have created some examples on wikidata and made some queries to study the results that could be obtained.

Moreover, by connecting the social pages we could also connect external content (images) and try to involve instagrammers that post photos of wines on social media to insert photos on Wikimedia Commons and then populate the wikidata and wikipedia elements.

List of examples: Cerasuolo di Vittoria, lambrusco (grape variety), Firriato (winery), Etna Bianco (wine).

@Teolemon, @Sebleouf, what do you think?

Teolemon (talkcontribs)

Hey @LiaFla, have you heard of Open Food Facts ? We're creating a crowdsourced open database of all food and drink products in the world using a mobile app. We support wine, and we'd be keen on adding all the attributes that remain objective - Pierre

LiaFla (talkcontribs)

It's awesome! :) in your opinion, would it be useful to add in the properties section another table "for wine" using as example a specific wine? (to help who want add new elements) tnks - Lia

Hi, I see you're adding P1416 to university items. I had earlier used its superproperty P361 for that purpose and so some of these university items now contain duplicate information. For instance, Q1755318 now has both Part Of and Affiliation properties linking to Q10814056. Is there a discussion somewhere about the best way to link universities with their parent and child organizations?

Affiliation means something specific for academia in some parts of the world. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Affiliated_school

I have seen infoboxes for Indian colleges being affiliated with a more prestigious university. So it has a specific meaning in the anglo-saxon world.

But in France, that is probably something that should be in an other field. We should indeed remove the French part.

I broke my arm yesterday, so the one finger answer is short. I will try to address that asa i get my second hand back.


Teolemon (talkcontribs)

I collected from enwiki to be clear, from the affiliation field.

As you can see this is a placeholder of an Infobox, not a real image, so why do you instance of (P31) it?

Teolemon (talkcontribs)

I used harvest templates, and usually they are blacklisted to prevent addition. But It seems the blacklist doesn't extend to this one (I was working on the Chinese Wikipedia)

Stop doing too many edits in small period of time, get a bot instead. This is making trouble for servers. If you continue with this speed I might need to block you due to bot policy.

Ladsgroup (talkcontribs)

I had to block you, sorry. Tell me you stopped the process and I will unblock you.

Teolemon (talkcontribs)

I've stopped. Sorry.

Ladsgroup (talkcontribs)

Unblocked, please make a bot and continue doing so :) Thanks

Teolemon (talkcontribs)

I was using 6 windows of Harvest Template in // to harvest chunks of the same template.

Ladsgroup (talkcontribs)

you definitely should not do that without bot flag, and even with bots it should be kept around 60 edits per minute.

Teolemon (talkcontribs)

Ok, so it's about requesting the bot flag for my account and keeping it below the threshold, not the tool I actually use to edit (eg Harvest) ?

Ladsgroup (talkcontribs)

Yes that's correct.

Teolemon (talkcontribs)

Is it ok to use Harvest Template ? With a single window, as it's meant to be used ?

Ladsgroup (talkcontribs)

Yes :)
