Hello @Vladimir Alexiev and you for spending time to review our proposals. We are very happy with your suggestion and would be glad if you could have a call with us for us to discuss the possibilities and constraints on using some of the properties. You could suggest your availability for different days and times for us to select from. Hope to hear from you soon.
We could talk tomorrow Friday after 1:30pm Bulgarian time. Please send me a meeting request at vladimir dot alexiev at ontotext.com. Let's meet at https://meet.google.com/gdh-dvgf-tzc
@Vladimir Alexiev Thank you for your quick response. I will be traveling tomorrow and returning on Monday, hence, I will be on transit around that time tomorrow. I leave in Ghana and the timezone is UTC+00. Please, let me know what other times work for you next week, and I will be glad to send you an invite.
I'm considering taking 3w vacation, but you can send an invite at any time (Sofia is UTC+3)
@Vladimir Alexiev I am available on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday next week. Please let me know times works for you on any of those days. However, if the 1:30pm Bulgarian time still works for you on any of the days, that is cool for me.
@Dnishtobu I have a few meetings every day, but the chance of conflict is small. Please send me a meeting request at vladimir dot alexiev at ontotext.com. If you don't do this so it appears in my calendar, I'm not likely to see your comment on time. Let's meet at https://meet.google.com/gdh-dvgf-tzc
@Vladimir Alexiev I trust you are well. Thank you for the message on my talk page.
Please if you will be available by 14:00 UTC today, we can meet via your meeting invite link. https://meet.google.com/gdh-dvgf-tzc
Please let me know if this works for you.
Call for participation in a task-based online experiment
Dear Vladimir Alexiev,
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 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 to a research venue.
The study should take no more than 15 minutes.
If you agree to participate in this study, please either contact me at email@example.com or use this form https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSees9WzFXR0Vl3mHLkZCaByeFHRrBy51kBca53euq9nt3XWog/viewform?usp=sf_link
Then, I will contact you with the link to start the study.
For more information about the study, 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.
ALLCAPS LABELS AND DESCRIPTIONS
Hi Vladimir Alexiev,
Wikidata:Database_reports/Complex_constraint_violations/P7534 finds items with labels and descriptions that are in all caps. Many seem to have created by you. I suppose you are aware of Help:Label and Help:Descriptions about that. If you need help fixing them, please add a request to Wikidata:Bot requests.
Posted https://www.wikidata.org/wiki/Wikidata:Bot_requests#fix_ALLCAPS_of_items_imported_from_MIC. But proper "Title Case" is not so easy to do due to prepositions.

Hi anonymous! I still don't understand what you mean.
Wrong "?"s in your MIC import from 2021
the correct name for XETRA ? FREIVERKEHR? OFF-BOOK (Q107228120) is Xetra – Freiverkehr– Off-Book. All other interrogation marks from this import seem also to be wrong.
Fixed one instance, will work on the rest. https://w.wiki/5hZZ finds 10 instances
Fixed all instances.
Crunchbase bug 2
I'm going through https://www.wikidata.org/wiki/Wikidata:Database_reports/Constraint_violations/P2088 and fixing things. All other CB identifiers use lowercase letters and https://www.wikidata.org/wiki/Property_talk:P2088 "Format" disallows uppercase.
But you are right, "Fyber" is an exception in CB. Fixed.
couldn't there be other/lots of identifiers that don't work in all lowercase? How do we know this didn't break lots of items
- I've seen thousands of CB identifiers and never seen one in uppercase.
- The prop definition says "format as a regular expression: [^A-Z \/]+ ; constraint status: mandatory constraint" (but has no reference). I didn't add this constraint.
- I'm not changing identifiers to lowercase en-masse, just this one
- I've added http://km.aifb.kit.edu/services/crunchbase/ en-masse which unfortunately has errors. In addition to those fixed by batch described in "Crunchbase bug" below, I'm currently working out many more
ok thanks for doing this
Based on this edit, the task you just ran appears to have a bug of some sort.
I got those CB IDs from http://km.aifb.kit.edu/services/crunchbase/ and they were made maybe 4y ago. I guess at the time the right ID was pomona-college-2, now it's pomona-college.
The batch failed to add references, so I'm rerunning it now https://quickstatements.toolforge.org/#/batch/62211. Please report any more bugs you find, and I'll fix them after the batch is done.
@tacsipacsi, Sdkb:: I'm now running https://quickstatements.toolforge.org/#/batch/62657 to remove 851 wrong Crunchbase IDs. But WD update is so broken that such simple operation gives errors, and I've had to rerun "reset errors" 5 times already
George Graham records mixed up
Based on your questions on my talk page, you seem to be working on artists regularly. Could you have a look at Q2146291 and Q41323135? It seems the data on two different artists are mixed up here (see RKDartists links).
Yes, they appear the same (please merge), whereas https://rkd.nl/en/explore/artists/33250 (linked to the first WD item) is a different earlier artist (please create new)
