Edit on Q1588860Edit

  Hello, I'm ValterVB. Welcome to Wikidata! I noticed that you recently removed a link from Q1588860, but didn't add it anywhere else. If you feel that the link would be better suited to another item, please add it there. (If you don't know how to do that, feel free to contact me at my talk page and I can do it for you.) If you're curious about editing Wikidata, and would like to test things out, please try the Wikidata Sandbox. Thanks, and happy editing! --ValterVB (talk) 10:52, 25 February 2013 (UTC)

Also on Q1031939, Q1279251, Q650230, Q500015 and Q609357. if you continue without explaining, you will be blocked --ValterVB (talk) 11:04, 25 February 2013 (UTC)
The links I removed were concerning specifically 1. division of the seasons, as some languages (Norwegian, Portuguese, German) have seperate articles for each division (1st, 2nd, 3rd) whereas English, Russian, Japanese have a common article for all divisions together. Check the articles and sort it out yourself. I'm not doing the job again. --Wikijens (talk) 12:52, 25 February 2013 (UTC)
But if you remove link without to create new item we risk to missing wikilink. --ValterVB (talk) 12:58, 25 February 2013 (UTC)
I have moved Norwegian and Portuguese from Q1588860 to Q5325257 and added German. Q1436277 is now empty and superfluous. The other years I will leave for someone else to sort out. If you want people to contribute to wikidata, be more careful with threats of blocking. --Wikijens (talk) 13:14, 25 February 2013 (UTC)
I haven't blocked, I said if you continue without explain... You have explained so no problem. Thanks --ValterVB (talk) 13:21, 25 February 2013 (UTC)
You're not the one deciding if there is a problem or not. You have reverted my edits and thus introduced iw-conflicts. You have threatened to block me. You haven't apologized. I am surprised that people like you are trusted as administrators on wikidata. --Wikijens (talk) 14:07, 25 February 2013 (UTC)
Valter threatened to block you because you continued to remove links without responding to his points. We now know you're contributing in good faith, and can work together to resolve these interwiki conflicts, which is great.  Thanks for catching them. However, you're only creating needless drama by complaining about Valter. Let's focus on improving the project instead of on crying "admin abuse". — PinkAmpers&(Je vous invite à me parler) 00:18, 26 February 2013 (UTC)
(Addendum: Reviewing your contribs, I see that you actually didn't remove any links between the first warning and the second. I presume that you got the second warning anyways because Valter was patrolling recent changes and was somewhat disturbed by the large number of link removals he was seeing from you. Whatever. Let's just all put this misunderstanding behind us.) — PinkAmpers&(Je vous invite à me parler) 00:24, 26 February 2013 (UTC)
Ok :-) --Wikijens (talk) 09:37, 26 February 2013 (UTC)

Merging to higher number IDEdit

Hi, why are you merging many items into new items created by automated item creations? e.g. Q1597966->Q16691852 ; Q15979661->Q16685177; Q15979663->Q16692531 ; Q15979665->Q16698562 ; Q15979666->Q16698779 ; Q15979664->Q16719821 John Vandenberg (talk) 10:28, 28 April 2014 (UTC)

Hi. I think these merges have happened through the "add link"-function directly from wp-articles, at least I know I haven't created new items manually in these cases. I assumed this function would add the one article to the item of the other if existing, but apparently it creates new items then. If that is against the normal merge policy, I guess there is a bug in this function? --Wikijens (talk) 15:43, 4 May 2014 (UTC)


you have a no-language babel on your user page. please don't add labels, descriptions or aliases in no. they should instead be made in nb. see Wikidata:Project_chat#'als'/'gsw'? 'de-formal'?. --Akkakk 06:13, 29 April 2014 (UTC)

Thanks. I will remove no from the babel-list in order to avoid confusion. --Wikijens (talk) 15:47, 4 May 2014 (UTC)

Sports-Reference.com Olympic athlete ID (P1447)Edit

Hei, denne egenskapen skal ikke ha med .html (re. [1]), i motsetning til hvordan det er i malen på nowiki. Så veit du det. :-) Jeg driver forresten og importerer verdiene fra flere wikipedier med botten min, men møter av og til problemer som gjør at den stopper opp, men skal prøve å få hjelp til å fikse det fra noen som veit mer om botter enn meg. Jon Harald Søby (talk) 15:27, 21 August 2014 (UTC)

Takk. Var allerede klar over det (jf. rettelsen på Q993866), men var åpenbart slurvete med de siste to jeg la inn. Skal være mere nøye fremover :-) --Wikijens (talk) 11:33, 22 August 2014 (UTC)
Takk for hjelpa med å fikse alle feila, forresten! (En ting jeg har lært så langt: Nederlendere suger balle på å gjøre ting riktig. ;-P ) Jon Harald Søby (talk) 20:39, 29 August 2014 (UTC)
Hehe. Til gjengjeld er de flinke til å takke for hjelpen. Kommer en rød firkant omtrent hver gang jeg er inne på deres utgave :-) --Wikijens (talk) 20:42, 29 August 2014 (UTC)

Vietnamese diacriticsEdit

Hello Wikijens,

I looked at several different sources. It looks like Phan Thị Hà Thanh is used more often in relation to this person based on web searches related to her name. I'm not 100% sure of how to find this out for sure- but if we trust news sources- then I'd go with Phan Thị Hà Thanh.Hweyl (talk) 22:07, 22 September 2014 (UTC)

Merging itemsEdit

Hallo Wikijens,

If you were not already using it, you may want to check out the merge.js gadget for merging items. It has an option "Request deletion for extra items on RfD" to automatically nominate the page you are merging from for deletion. This way of nominating also makes it easier for the admins to process such requests. For support and other options you can check the help page about merging.

With regards, - cycŋ - (talkcontribslogs) 10:02, 24 September 2014 (UTC)

Ali Al-AmriEdit

Hi, the It item had the same birth date of the Fa item (referenced), so I merged them. I think he was the n.6 of the Emirates team at the Olympics, as you can see in every language version, so En and No have probably wrong birth date. Bye. --Ermanon (talk) 01:15, 12 February 2015 (UTC)

Wikidata useful.jsEdit

Hei! Jeg syns du bør sjekke ut Magnus Manskes skript User:Magnus Manske/wikidata useful.js. (Putt den i Special:MyPage/common.js ved å skrive importScript( 'User:Magnus Manske/wikidata_useful.js' );.) Det gjør det veldig enkelt å legge inn diverse egenskaper, og jeg har også lokalisert den for norsk ved blant annet å fjerne baseball-, cricket- og softballspiller og i stedet legge inn diverse vintersportsting. Det kan være kjekt når du sysler med OL-deltakere og lignende. :-) Jon Harald Søby (talk) 22:45, 23 February 2015 (UTC)

Takk, skal prøve det ved anledning. --Wikijens (talk) 08:56, 24 February 2015 (UTC)

Constraint-reports updatingEdit

Hello Wikijens. Edits like this are really not necessary, since KrBot's contributions in wikidata-namespace does them every now end then. But then again it removes possible double-checks of these violations listed in that constraint-report list. Ps. See also PLtools for harvesting items lying in templates for transfering to wikidata. Best regards Migrant (talk) 00:37, 6 January 2016 (UTC)

Hei. Jeg er klar over at boten ordner, gadd bare ikke vente :-) Jeg skal sjekke det verktøyet du nevner. --Wikijens (talk) 11:54, 6 January 2016 (UTC)


Hi, was this a coincidence or purposeful that you have edited this article? Marcus Cyron (talk) 03:01, 22 March 2017 (UTC)

Hi, it was on purpose. Which part of my edit were you wondering about, in case I made a mistake? --Wikijens (talk) 08:41, 22 March 2017 (UTC)

Workshop om WikidataEdit

Hei! Jeg veit ikke om du har fått det med deg, men 18. november skal vi i WMNO arrangere en workshop om litt mer avansert bruk av Wikidata og tilhørende verktøy. Det er kanskje noe du ville vært interessert i? Mer informasjon fins her, og om du bor langt unna kan WMNO hjelpe til med å dekke reisekostnader. Meld deg gjerne på! Jon Harald Søby (WMNO) (talk) 13:48, 28 September 2017 (UTC)

Takk for informasjonen. Mvh. --Wikijens (talk) 20:45, 28 September 2017 (UTC)


Hallo Wikijens,
You could have merged Q43538307 into Q3801856 by using the merge.js gadget from help page about merging. It helps with merging, gives the option to always keep the lower number (which is older, so preferable in most cases) and removes the need to file a request on Wikidata:Requests for deletions.
