name in kanaEdit

Hello! There is proposal for new property Wikidata:Property proposal/Generic#name in kana. Would you like to put some vote about it? I am not able to read kana, however I made some experimental modules (engine, data) at my home wiki, which try to convert it to readable (for me of course) form. You can preview the results in my sandbox. Paweł Ziemian (talk) 20:53, 30 March 2015 (UTC)

Your bot has been listed at Wikidata:Requests for permissions/Removal/Inactive bot accounts as being inactive for over two years. As a housekeeping measure it's proposed to remove the bot flag from inactive bot accounts, unless you expect the bot will be operated again in the near future. If you consent to the removal of the bot flag (or do not reply on the deflag page) you can rerequest the bot flag at Wikidata:Requests for permissions/Bot should you need it again. Of course, You may request retaining your bot flag here if you need the bot flag. Regards--GZWDer (talk) 12:04, 26 June 2017 (UTC)

The bot flag has been removed. Lymantria (talk) 06:12, 8 July 2017 (UTC)


Was a beeさん、いつもお世話になっております。

突然のお願いで申し訳ございません。restriction enzyme (Q219715)を記述するためのプロパティーを以前から提案しているのですが、積極的なサポートが得られないまま1年が経ってしまいました。英語版のWikipediaにはw:List_of_restriction_enzyme_cutting_sites:_E–Fのようにたくさんのデータが含まれていて、これらをWikidataにインポートするために必要なのです。もし宜しければプロパティーの作成に賛同していただけないでしょうか。提案のページはこちらになります:Wikidata:Property_proposal/recognition_sequence。お忙しいところ恐縮ですが、どうぞよろしくお願いいたします。 --Okkn (talk) 15:37, 19 February 2018 (UTC)


Hi Was a bee. Two years ago you create the template Statement+. I discuss with an user of CA Wiki of the projets to create templates (infoboxes and tables) able to work on different Wikipedias, first ideas are written on Wikidata:WikiProject Supertemplates. One of the main subject will be the documentation of different properties in different languages. That is why I use for this test on Wikidata talk:WikiProject Supertemplates Statement+. It works very well, but there is just a detail, the tables don't change of direction when we use the page in AR and HE. Can you make an adaptation ?

Mr. Ibrahem solved this problem. Jérémy-Günther-Heinz Jähnick (talk) 12:36, 2 November 2019 (UTC)

Change in template:Statement+Edit

Hi, congratulations by this template. I usually used {{Claim}}, but this one is more clear to understanding by news or non-frequent editors.

We're working in a new way to document infoboxes and how the information must be enter in WD in order to show results. Usually, the number of properties and qualifiers are complex and we want to complement the present "looks like WD interface" of the template:Statement+ with some related instructions. You can see one case here: a collection of statement+ and the result in the infobox. Observe the new column on the right where describe key aspects to guide the editors. Now, we modified the template copy in cawiki, and we are creating pieces of documentation that we need to move and share in Wikidata platform. So, I need to modify the WD version with changes I made (see in ca:special:diff/22245696). Basically, it affects 3 points:

  • make the "navbar icon" can be hide, in order to avoid it when we have a list of Statement+. By default it is shown, as now.
  • add the "doc column" on the right. New optional parameters are: doc, width_doc, color_doc. If doc is not used, the result is the same as now.
  • eliminate the present "width values" of central body. The addition of the existing width is 100% of total and left no space for new column. Without the "width" now eliminated, central body gets the remaining spaces of left+new column. Again, without using doc the result is the same as now.

I appreciate that you accept to incorporate the changes that have no effect in any of the preexisting uses. Thanks, Amadalvarez (talk) 20:41, 5 November 2019 (UTC)

P.S. If you wish, I'll update the documentation with new feture, when done.

Hello @Amadalvarez:. That sounds nice. Sure, go ahead. If documentation will be updated, that's helpful. Thank you.--Was a bee (talk) 22:13, 5 November 2019 (UTC)
Thanks a lot !.   Done Take a glance to the documentation and feel free to change anything you consider. Amadalvarez (talk) 23:11, 5 November 2019 (UTC)
