Welcome to Wikidata, Thierry Caro!

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! --Stryn (talk) 18:25, 5 February 2013 (UTC)Reply

peakware mountain ID (P3513)


Hi Thierry Caro, a while ago you added data from Peakware, dead now, and recently I stumbled across some duplicates I could resolve. Also some spelling errors from the source (due to the fact of user generated content on peakware?). e.g. Grnegghorn -> Grünegghorn, Schneehhnerstock -> Schneehüenerstock. But there are still candidates for merging: Query (or deletion) - remove the minus coords line to get all items having a peakware mountain ID (P3513), some already merged. What about cleaning up the stuff? Do you care?

I feel that putting the elevation to the item description is not conforming to Help:Description. It only is practical to guarantee necessary uniqueness. Elevation in the structured world of Wikidata should always be a property (and the conversion from ft to m shouldn't be done manually). Furthermore an entry like South Creek Butte (Q30124069) is just a container for the id, not a description of the mountain (and the duplicate South Creek Butte (Q49075783) as well isn't a proper description).

I also found your post on https://terrillthompson.com/1251. No further reaction, so is there any usefulness in keeping peakware mountain ID (P3513) property? What do you think? When you agree that peakware id is dead, than the property could be removed and deleted and the plain container objects for the id (as mentioned above) could as well be deleted (instead of merging and completing). best --Herzi Pinki (talk) 05:56, 14 September 2023 (UTC)Reply

@Herzi Pinki: Hello. I am in favor of deleting stuff that is dead. I think the Peakware property can and should be deleted, but I believe people tend to oppose such deletions here, and as I do not want to spend time arguing for hours to no avail, I just let dead content be. In other words, this property is up for whatever others will want it to become. Thierry Caro (talk) 06:17, 14 September 2023 (UTC)Reply
Once the garbage is in, it will stay there? GIGnO (never). Trying to delete peakware mountain ID (P3513) might be difficult. But will you help me to resolve the duplicates in the items you imported from Peakware? (that's a different story). --Herzi Pinki (talk) 10:36, 14 September 2023 (UTC)Reply
Honestly, no offense, but this would be losing your time. The property is dead. I suggest we just leave it as is. Thierry Caro (talk) 19:28, 14 September 2023 (UTC)Reply
Ok, the property is dead. But there are mountains left I could not resolve as duplicates. see Query. Even when the property is dead, the mountain behind is existing (presumingly) and should have a full set of mountain related properties like coordinate location (P625), located in the administrative territorial entity (P131), elevation above sea level (P2044), mountain range (P4552). If it is not existing, it should be deleted. --Herzi Pinki (talk) 10:01, 17 September 2023 (UTC)Reply

Call for participation in a task-based online experiment


Dear Thierry_Caro,

I hope you are doing well,

I am Kholoud, a researcher at King's College London, and I am working on a project as part of my PhD research, in which I have developed a personalised recommender model that suggests Wikidata items for the editors based on their past edits. I am collaborating on this project with Elena Simperl and Miaojing Shi.

I am inviting you to a task-based study that will ask you to provide your judgments about the relevance of the items suggested by our model based on your previous edits.

Participation is completely voluntary, and your cooperation will enable us to evaluate the accuracy of the recommender system in suggesting relevant items to you. We will analyse the results anonymised, and they will be published in a research venue.

The experiment should take no more than 15 minutes, and it will be held next week.

If you agree to participate in this study, please either contact me at kholoud.alghamdi@kcl.ac.uk or use this form https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSfA1wfdBfCRlcG3WhDyc-V8lzgPNx3fDFCNXkyn4CSwahXZ_A/viewform?usp=sf_link

Then, I will contact you with the link to start the study.

For more information about my project, please read this post: https://www.wikidata.org/wiki/User:Kholoudsaa

In case you have further questions or require more information, don't hesitate to contact me through my mentioned email.

Thank you for considering taking part in this research.

Lien de naissance  Roland Ramade


Bonsoir Thierry,
J'ai vu qu'en 2016 vous aviez indiqué que cet artiste (Q24578986) était né au Puy en Velay. Sa page Wikipédia était notée avec une naissance à Béziers et un autre utilisateur a effectué une mise en cohérence très partielle en 2022.
Je vous sollicite car je n'arrive pas à voir une source qui donnerait une information valable (musicbrainz reprenant wiki).
Est-ce que l'on passe à tout Béziers ou tout Puy ?
Merci d'avance

@Nezdek: Salut. Je n'en ai aucune idée, car il s'agit sans doute d'une information que j'ai importée ici dans le cadre d'une série semi-automatisée. Thierry Caro (talk) 21:03, 28 February 2024 (UTC)Reply
Du coup c'est plutôt faux ? Quelle est la source ? Nezdek (talk) 17:32, 29 February 2024 (UTC)Reply
@Nezdek: L'origine de l'information est Wikipédia en français, dans sa version de juillet 2016. Je ne sais pas si l'information est fausse, juste qu'elle vient de là. Thierry Caro (talk) 17:36, 29 February 2024 (UTC)Reply
OK. Je viens de regarder l'historique et l'erreur semble être initiale, en faisant coexister les deux villes l'une dans l'intro et l'autre dans l'infobox+catégorie (lien). Comme il y a même une erreur de frappe, pour la ville qui n'est pas la plus proche de son lieu d'habitation, je propose de corriger Le Puy en Béziers. OK ? Nezdek (talk) 18:09, 29 February 2024 (UTC)Reply
{{Ping|Nezdek} Si tu es à peu près convaincu, je n'ai aucune objection. Thierry Caro (talk) 18:26, 29 February 2024 (UTC)Reply

Identifiants PRELIB


Bonjour, La base de données PRELIB ne peut pas être considérée comme une référence de notabilité. En effet, la base référence des personnes qui sont justes présentes dans des inventaires d'archives parce qu'elles ont adressé un courrier à un auteur de PRELIB mais ne sont pas connues pour autant. Serait-il donc possible de supprimer le critère Wikidata property for an identifier that suggests notability (Q62589316) de la propriété PRELIB person ID (P5641) ? Merci.

Catalogue PRELIB Person sur Mix'n'Match


Bonjour, Pour faire suite à mon précédent message, serait-il possible de supprimer le catalogue PRELIB Person sur Mix'n'Match ? En effet, comme indiqué précédemment, PRELIB référence des personnes qui sont présentes dans des inventaires d'archives parce qu'elles ont adressé un courrier à un auteur inventorié dans PRELIB mais qui ne sont pas "connues" pour autant.

Catalogue L'ÎLE (écrivains liés au Québec)


Bonjour Thierry, j'espère que vous vous portez bien!

Au fil de différents projets d'exportation de données vers Wikidata (relatifs à des corpus de la francophonie canadienne), j'ai pris connaissance de l'existence du catalogue que vous avez créé en 2018 à partir des écrivain.es présent.es sur la base de données L'ÎLE, gérée par l'Union des écrivains (où je suis employé depuis quelque temps).

Je voulais porter à votre attention le fait que de nombreux auteurs et autrices ont été ajouté.es à la base de données depuis la dernière importation (remontant à 2021, si je ne m'abuse): l'identifiant L'ÎLE a normalement été utilisé. Je me disais qu'une mise à jour du catalogue serait souhaitable, mais n'étant pas familier avec Mix'n'Match, je préférais me rendre à la source.

Merci pour votre temps (et pour toute explication supplémentaire susceptible de m'éclairer sur la création de ce catalogue)! Facetiae (talk) 18:37, 5 June 2024 (UTC)Reply
