Another cool geology referenceEdit

Do you know about this one? Geologic Unit Type (Q63464453), home page, search page. - PKM (talk) 22:05, 4 May 2019 (UTC)

@PKM: I have no idea what that is. Honestly, I'm baffled what to do with it. I'm sure there's something I should do with it, but I don't know what. Sorry... confused. Trilotat (talk) 23:04, 4 May 2019 (UTC)
@PKM: To be clear, I'm interested... but confused. Trilotat (talk) 23:08, 4 May 2019 (UTC)
That would be because I screwed it up. I meant to link to this dataset: International Chronostratigraphic Chart 2017 as searchable multilingual linked open data. Now if I can just figure out what the order of languages is we'll have multilingual labels... - PKM (talk) 03:15, 5 May 2019 (UTC)
And ... that one’s deprecated. This is the current one now International Chronostratigraphic Chart data set (Q63468524). - PKM (talk) 03:20, 5 May 2019 (UTC)
<headesk>the labels at the top are alphabetical.

Merge?Edit

I keep dithering about whether to merge geologic unit (Q30914189) and geological unit (Q3694119). What do you think? - PKM (talk) 05:17, 7 May 2019 (UTC)

@PKM: I am not in anyway formally educated in geology beyond the few classes I took at what I think is the world's greatest community college (which I will leave unnamed in order to avoid conflict.) I think they should be merged because I think they are used in WikiData to describe the same thing, though they should be different. Example, my trusty "Dictionary of Geological Terms" describes geological terms (congruent melting point, syncline, etc.) that are used to describe geologic things (rocks, structures, earthquakes, etc.)

I think "geological units" should be chronographic units, stratigraphic units, etc., which describe the things and "geologic units" should be the formations, the things described. Trilotat (talk) 05:40, 7 May 2019 (UTC)
Thank you, that’s the two sides of the question as I see it too. I think it’s probably impractical to try to distinguish geological and geologic (especially as the formal vocabularies use “geologic”). (We have the same challenge with historical/historic, where I think the fine difference in usage is at least partly US vs. UK. But I digress.) in any case I am not sure the fine distinctions work across all languages. Ah, English, with its plethora of not-quite-synonyms. Great for poetry, not so much for Wikidata.
FWIW, you gave more formal education in geology than I do. And you *care*. - PKM (talk) 12:51, 7 May 2019 (UTC)

When you remove Puerto Rico country claim - you should at the same time add Puerto Rico in some other claimEdit

Otherwise, you're trying to make Puerto Rico disappear. Morovis is in Puerto Rico. You made more than 533 of these types of changes.
I'd like to know if and how this change that I'm requesting of your person, can be made.
‎ This -"Removed claim: country (P17): Puerto Rico (Q1183), #quickstatements; #temporary_batch_1564947014098 undothank Tag: QuickStatements [1.5]" X more than 533 times. --The Eloquent Peasant (talk) 20:28, 4 August 2019 (UTC)

I did, but you might have seen it before the 533 additions were complete (it was two separate actions.) I added it as a territory. As for how I did it, please see https://www.wikidata.org/wiki/Help:QuickStatements. Simply, you put a minus sign before the QID of the item. Example -Q2623982,P17,Q1183 and it removes the property Country=Puerto Rico. Trilotat (talk) 20:30, 4 August 2019 (UTC)
I'm very sorry but I don't see that you've added it, in a two-step process, which I imagine it would be. 1st step to remove P.R. as a country and 2nd to add it somewhere else.
See here: https://www.wikidata.org/w/index.php?title=Q66081859&diff=prev&oldid=992016161 where you remove P.R. from the wikidata item
See here: https://www.wikidata.org/wiki/Q66081859 the current wikidata item without P.R.
Then see here in the article where it lists Canada, Puerto Rico, and the United States in the medical article, https://clinicaltrials.gov/ct2/show/record/NCT02925494
And where have you readded Puerto Rico to the wikidata item? and so now the Wikidata items, across all your changes are incorrectly missing P.R. as one of the places where for example: the "Extension Study to Evaluate the Efficacy and Safety of Elagolix in Premenopausal Women With Heavy Menstrual Bleeding Associated With Uterine Fibroids (English)" - the wikidata item will no longer reflect that Puerto Rico was a location for the study. multiplied more than 533 items that you've updated. Correct me if I'm wrong but my eyes are not seeing it.The Eloquent Peasant (talk) 00:33, 5 August 2019 (UTC)
My regrets. I might not have been as thorough as I'd planned. I'm running the query, so I hope to resolve it. Thank you for calling me on my incomplete task. Trilotat (talk) 03:09, 5 August 2019 (UTC)
Thank you. I appreciate your work on this. Don't worry. Puerto Rico has a tendency of slipping through the cracks. I'm doing what I can. Thanks again.--The Eloquent Peasant (talk) 10:10, 5 August 2019 (UTC)
I wanted to repair the misunderstanding (in the edits) that PR is not a part of the US. I’m glad you prevented me from taking away the PR from the items. Trilotat (talk) 16:33, 5 August 2019 (UTC)
Thanks again.--The Eloquent Peasant (talk) 02:27, 18 August 2019 (UTC)
@The Eloquent Peasant: de nada. Trilotat (talk) 04:28, 18 August 2019 (UTC)

your merge of glycosyltransferaseEdit

Hello, in this merge you combined an enzyme family item (see the Wikipedia article) with a specific enzyme from a parasitic species. Please don't do such things again! I'll restore it. --SCIdude (talk) 08:00, 9 September 2019 (UTC)

@SCIdude: My apologies for the mistake and thanks for the apparent work you did to remedy it. Trilotat (talk) 14:04, 9 September 2019 (UTC)
