PrecisionEdit

I looked at some botedits, and I think your are not adding the available coordinates with the desired precision. For example https://www.wikidata.org/wiki/Q1186567 , you add 59°55'54"N, 30°20'11"E using lat/lon 59.93177501, 30.3363139 but you could better add more precise 59° 55′ 54.39″ N 30° 20′ 10.73″ E . Now you lose some precision for buildings and other objects which can not be changed easilly afterwards. Could you please update your bot to include at least one decimal more precision?

ok. --WikedKentaur (talk) 14:25, 27 September 2013 (UTC)

TõlgeEdit

Palun vaata siia. Pikne 15:18, 7 October 2013 (UTC)

Ma torgiks veel neid "lausungeid". Vaata uuesti tõlkeviki arutelu. Pikne 15:59, 16 September 2014 (UTC)

ThanksEdit

I see that you are importing coordinates from the French Wikipedia. It's great, thanks! Ayack (talk) 12:55, 14 October 2013 (UTC)

fr.wikipedia.orgEdit

French Wikipedia gives coordinates of the type locality for minerals, could you avoid that please? Regards --Chris.urs-o (talk) 12:50, 18 October 2013 (UTC)

I'll have to run post-check on fr:Liste_de_minéraux then. In which article you spotted that on Wikidata? --WikedKentaur (talk) 13:20, 18 October 2013 (UTC)

Coords for spacecraftEdit

Hi, please see [1], looks like bug in bot`s algorithm. — Ivan A. Krestinin (talk) 19:35, 21 November 2013 (UTC)

ok. --WikedKentaur (talk) 16:16, 22 November 2013 (UTC)
Probably the same for this one. /Esquilo (talk) 17:40, 3 December 2013 (UTC)
I have blocked your bot until such time as you stop it. Please fix the above errors before restarting the task (see also [2]). --Izno (talk) 14:53, 5 December 2013 (UTC)

EHAK id (P1140)Edit

Just created EHAK id (P1140). --Tobias1984 (talk) 18:20, 4 February 2014 (UTC)

User:KrattBot1Edit

Hi, as your bot User:KrattBot is blocked you are not allowed to continue editing with another unapproved bot account. Please stop the bot and participate in the discussion on WD:AN or I will have to block the account. -- Bene* talk 12:48, 9 February 2014 (UTC)

I have blocked this new bot account and restricted future account creation.
You will respond to the issues that the community has asked you to fix before attempting to use this or another bot.
Thanks. --Izno (talk) 13:21, 9 February 2014 (UTC)

ORCIDEdit

Hi, With regard to [Wikidata:Property proposal/ Estonian Research Portal Person ID this], I note the Estoninan Wikipedia does not yet have ORCID iD (P496) in its Authority control template. Please see my suggestion there. Can you help, please? Andy Mabbett (Pigsonthewing); Talk to Andy; Andy's edits 20:28, 2 July 2016 (UTC)

Most likely this general template won't be used at et.wiki at all. --WikedKentaur (talk) 14:55, 7 July 2016 (UTC)

coordinatesEdit

Hello.What is the meaning of this edit?!Thank you --ديفيد عادل وهبة خليل 2 (talk) 11:13, 18 September 2016 (UTC)

enwiki article had such article coordinates. --WikedKentaur (talk) 11:45, 18 September 2016 (UTC)

ask for differenceEdit

Hey WikedKentaur,
what ist the difference between Neukirch/Lausitz (Q93270) and Q14955381?

one of them had wring coordinates. --WikedKentaur (talk) 13:03, 24 October 2016 (UTC)

Bad CoordinatesEdit

I wander where you bot got the coordinates added here. Reference says en-wiki but Free_solo_climbing article did not have coordinates in 2013. So where did they come from? --Jarekt (talk) 20:06, 7 December 2016 (UTC)

There was one coordinate link in article. But, yes, this wasn't the 'article coordinate' link. --WikedKentaur (talk) 20:58, 7 December 2016 (UTC)

Unused propertyEdit

This is a kind reminder that the following property was created more than six months ago: Estonian cultural monument ID (P2948). As of today, this property is used on less than five items. As the proposer of this property you probably want to change the unfortunate situation by adding a few statements to items. --Pasleim (talk) 19:36, 17 January 2017 (UTC)

@Pasleim: You might like to see that this has quite a few more uses now after I went on an adding spree! :) --Reosarevok (talk) 00:13, 3 December 2017 (UTC)

wrong importEdit

In https://www.wikidata.org/w/index.php?title=Q290752&type=revision&diff=86100815&oldid=80341038 mistake was made - bot imported coordinate for generic term Mateusz Konieczny (talk) 07:58, 9 September 2017 (UTC)

Aegviidu alevvald removalEdit

Why remove small town municipality (Q43227691) from Aegviidu (Q380727)? Shouldn't it just have an end date? It was true from 1993 to 2017 after all. Or would you rather have a separate item for the Aegviidu alevvald? The data should exist in some form anyway.--Reosarevok (talk) 11:19, 26 November 2017 (UTC)

ok. --WikedKentaur (talk) 19:46, 26 November 2017 (UTC)
@WikedKentaur: Actually I changed this again, since there was a separate item for "Aegviidu vald" (Aegviidu Rural Municipality (Q23890464). It makes more sense to have separate entities for cities and villages and their haldusüksused, because for example Aegviidu (Q380727) was not replaced by Anija vald, but (Aegviidu Rural Municipality (Q23890464) was. I've put User:Reosarevok/Estonian politics/Vallad up to try to figure out what has already been marked as replaced by something and has the "no longer a vald" dates. This official Excel file (sigh) specifies that most new vallad, even if they have the same name, are legally different (and should probably be different Wikidata items). A few are the same though ("Vinni vald (NB! Olemasolev Vinni vald säilib, teised liituvad)" jne). I saw you've been working with EHAK codes and haldusreform, so you might be interested in this :) --Reosarevok (talk) 00:18, 3 December 2017 (UTC)
@WikedKentaur: Also, if EHAK has a new ID, that's because a new vald was created - I've split Anija and Antsla, see User:Reosarevok/Estonian politics/Vallad :) Let's not put two EHAKs with start time, we just need a new vald --Reosarevok (talk) 13:32, 3 December 2017 (UTC)

Fotograafide andmebaasEdit

Ma panin tähele, et linnamuuseumi kodulehel olnud andmebaasi lingid, mida siia hulgem lisanud oled, ei tööta enam. Kuivõrd see andmebaas on nüüd saidil kulturnav.org ja paistab, et Reosarevok on lisanud kõik vastavad id-d (päring), siis küllap varasemaid linke pole enam tarvis? Võib-olla tahad need eemaldada? :) 90.191.81.65 20:04, 13 April 2018 (UTC)

Linn (haldusüksus) topeltEdit

Ma saan aru, et muudatused nagu Special:Diff/685352244 on selleks, et kõigi haldusüksuste OSM-is toodud piirid ühe päringuga välja tuleks, aga see ajab siin asja segaseks. Need 10 linna (haldusüksust) on nüüd muudes päringutes topelt ning haldus- ja asustusüksuste eristamine on muidu ka keerulisem, nt piirangutega (constraints) seoses. Sellele asjale tuleks kuidagi teisiti läheneda. Võib-olla peaks OSM-is panema nende linnade juurde asustusüksuse QID asemele halduseüksuse QID. Sellega samas ei teataks Vikipeedia teistes keeleversioonides ilmselt arvestada. Teine võimalus oleks teha haldusüksuse ja asustusüksuse kohta OSM-is kattuvad relatsioonid. Kolmas võimalus oleks eristada neid 10 linna omaduse coextensive with (P3403) järgi. Need piirid, mis haldusüksuste päringust muidu välja jäävad, saab siis juurde pärida. --90.191.81.65 12:08, 31 May 2018 (UTC)

jah, mingit lisapäringu varianti võiks praegu kasutada. --WikedKentaur (talk) 18:37, 31 May 2018 (UTC)

Miks sa Tartu linnaosadel P131 väärtuse ära muutsid? Haldusüksused on Eestis ikkagi maakonnad, vallad ja linnad (omavalitsusüksused). Minu meelest on parem asulaid haldusüksusteks mitte nimetada, ka tinglikult mitte, see tekitab segadust. Et näidata asukohta asulas, saab kasutada teist omadust (P276). --90.191.74.224 14:49, 30 June 2018 (UTC)

Tartuga on praegu suurem jama, sest heausklik poolakas kuulis kuskilt, et Eestis oli haldusreform, ja nüüd väidab Tartu linna kirje, et omavalitsus rajati 2017 Tartu linna baasil. Kui tahta selles liinis kohutavalt järjekindel olla, siis pidanuks tegema uue Tartu linna ja nimetama vana eksisteerimisajaks 1990-2017. Aga samas räägiti reformi ajal, et Tartu nõudis juriidiliste probleemide vältimiseks, et Tähtvere vald liidetaks Tartuga, mitte ei loodaks uut omavalitsust (st, Tartu juhtum ei olnud selle reformi kontekstis juriidilises mõttes tüüpiline). Siin on minu meelest aetud segi haldusüksus kui geograafiline mõiste ja omavalitsus kui organisatsiooniline mõiste, see tundub suurema osa inimeste jaoks liiga keeruline metafüüsika olevat. Igatahes oleks lihtsam kirjeldada toimunut nii, et panna Tartu linna kui omavalitsuse asutamishetkeks ikkagi 1990 ja kirjeldada mingil viisil, et Tähtvere vald sellega 2017 liideti. Ma ei tea, kuidas täpselt see käima peaks, äkki sina oskad. Praegu igatahes on tekkinud massiliselt veateateid, kuna kõik koolid jms asutused, mis enne 2017 kinni pandi, uue daatumiga ei ühildu. --Ehitaja (talk) 13:14, 30 July 2019 (UTC)

Andmebaas<>andmebaasi haldajaEdit

Sa lisasid Tartu kirjesse rahvaarvu ja allikaviiteks statistikaameti. Nüüd karjub WD, et statistikaamet ei ole publikatsioon. No ja õigesti teeb, Statt annab välja igasugu toredaid trükiseid ja haldab nummit andmebaasi, aga ta ei ole ise see andmebaas, ta on palju enamatki veel. Tegin baasile kirje: Q65994821. Naudi. --Ehitaja (talk) 13:17, 30 July 2019 (UTC)
