Please stop.

You are placing links for a neighborhood on a data item for a book. This is not a match.

You have made several bad edits like this. You should check and correct your mistakes.

I have made some corrections, but the bot has been undoing the corrections. --EncycloPetey (talk) 20:25, 24 August 2019 (UTC)

whoops! I stopped the bot. I will add a check to ensure that the bot doesn't edit the same item twice

Bot matching neighborhood to railway station

Pi.1415926535 (talkcontribs)

Your bot has made some edits recently that assign Who's On First IDs to railway stations that share their name with a neighborhood. See for example here. It would be best to have the bot check the instance of (P31) statement to make sure that it's a geographic entity - and not a railway station or other incorrect match - before adding. Thanks, Pi.1415926535 (talk) 08:41, 28 August 2019 (UTC)

The problem with this record is that it is incorrect upstream. I've submitted a pull request to fix it. Unfortunately, Who's on First covers instances of venue (Q17350442), which this item is. I will add a check to ensure that the bot does not edit the same item more than once, so this shouldn't happen to this item again.

Pi.1415926535 (talkcontribs)

The error has happened a number of times. The bot made the same error (matching a neighborhood on Who's On First to a railway station on Wikidata) on Q5033899, Q5361212, Q7958780, Q5432066, Q3467065, Q6986546, and Q7985399 - and that's just the ones I happened to be watching. Does the bot not check that the Who's On First item and the Wikidata item are the same type?

U+1F360 (talkcontribs)

ok, that's an interesting idea... we could map the placetypes to Wikidata items. To answer your question, no, it doesn't check, because there isn't a mapping, but I could create that (and I don't see why it couldn't live in their repo). I think that would fix the problem?

So sorry for the glitch with my proposal; somehow I missed yours completely.

U+1F360 (talkcontribs)

Oh! No problem! I'm glad great minds think alike! :) Please feel free to improve the proposal. :)

Trivialist (talkcontribs)

I've made some edits to the proposal, based on what I've seen with the mix'n'match catalog. Feel free to tweak or undo any of my edits, of course. :)
