We do. This is the result of a collaboration between OCLC and Wikiproject Women in Red. The number is used in listeria lists as a rough measure of importance and the availability of sources for potential article topics. Removing this number has now made all of those lists nonfunctional.

I've run a batch in QuickStatements to eliminate the small number of duplicates and I'm going to revert your reversion of my batch. I'm sorry about creating the duplicates but I would ask if you find any more we collaborate to come up with a solution that doesn't eliminate a lot of good data that people are using.

Thanks @Gamaliel and sorry for jumping the gun! Wikidata has pretty good ranking (cc @Smalyshev (WMF)), and this extra measure could improve the ranking?

You're doing the right action. After your batch is complete, I'll recheck Property talk:P7859#avoiding duplicates and try to eliminate more.

However, you've flooded me with notifications. Guess that is because you have the "Reverter" right? I dismiss them 50 at a time but still, going through 850 is tedious...

The regular yellow streaks in the scrollbar show that all 50 notifications are from the same user who is searched in the browser page (control-F)

Sorry about that! Is there a way to do it without sending a notification?

Vladimir Alexiev (talkcontribs)

Don't know :-) We are getting there: I'm removing my duplicates now..

Vladimir Alexiev (talkcontribs)

Hi @Gamaliel:, are you working to eliminate the duplicates?

Gamaliel (talkcontribs)

I'll reply on the Property talk page to centralize the discussion.

Cf your edit at Q56229820, the World Cat entry which mentions a book about police dogs is for another person of the same name, a policeman who is 20-30-year older.

Vladimir Alexiev (talkcontribs)

ok, removed

@Vladimir Alexiev, you have added the tag viaf-316734778 to the reference element. The added label refers to Losada, a publication from Buenos Aires, Argentina, when the Q5981319 element refers to a town in Spain. I am therefore undoing the edit, removing the tag again, as this WorldCat Identities ID, owned by the author, is not suitable for a population. Best regards, ~~~~

Vladimir Alexiev (talkcontribs)

@Galopax There are legitimate WorldCat pages about places, but I think you're right, this probably refers to Argentinian publishing house Editorial Losada not the Spanish city
