ReminderEdit

Hello Ymblanter!

Please remember to update Wikidata:List of administrators, Wikidata:Administrators by language/Table (if possible), Template:CurrentAdmins, Template:AdminsChart and MediaWiki:Gadget-markAdmins.js every time you promote a new admin. Thank you very much. Vogone talk 13:20, 31 August 2013 (UTC)

Yes, I actually remember this, but not always have time to fill in the info right after the promotion. Thanks for reminding anyway.--Ymblanter (talk) 13:22, 31 August 2013 (UTC)

Deletion Of Q104822142.Edit

Hello Dear Admin, I Created (Zeyan Shafiq) page on wikipedia. i had started exploring wikidata, so i found a wikidata article for the same(Q104822142) which was deleted by you. it was requested by a Disruptive editing user(Autobot312), it seems like a fake account made to vandalise the articles as you can check he has done it multiple times, he has deleted, blanked the page many times which was reverted back by another editor. i have written all the data myself there, you have completely deleted the page, you should have moved it to draft page so that i can make more improvements if it was incorrect. i request you to kindly restore the page, all the notability references are on wikipedia(Zeyan Shafiq).Hums4r (talk) 20:43, 18 January 2021 (UTC)

We have a policy, Wikidata:Notability. Could you please explain which criterion the deleted item satisfies.--Ymblanter (talk) 21:39, 18 January 2021 (UTC)
@Ymblanter: thanks for the reply admin, as mentioned, wikidata has its two main goals for notability, should have a page to any other wiki project

(Zeyan Shafiq) has a article on wikipedia. and this data can be described using serious and publicly available references which are all mentioned on the wikipedia page in references, dear admin i am new to wikidata so i don't have enough knowledge but this wikidata item was automatically created and i just added information and data to improve it further, i work on kashmir topics, you can check i research about all the items, if i find anything not notable i post it for deletion, but everything i added to this data was completely sourced, i have put references of each thing, i request you to kindly undelete the page so as it may serve as information. even you can check the data that i have put in this(Q104822142), if there is anything incorrect give me a chance to improve but deleting it directly just spoils my hard work. thanks admin Hums4r (talk) 21:51, 18 January 2021 (UTC)

Could you please give a reference to the Wikipedia article.--Ymblanter (talk) 21:52, 18 January 2021 (UTC)
@Ymblanter:, Surely admin, (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zeyan_Shafiq) this article was created by me on wiki,later i was suggested by admins to not work on creating articles since i was new, so i started exploring other wiki projects like wiki media and wiki data to improve kashmir's topics on wiki projects.Hums4r (talk) 21:56, 18 January 2021 (UTC)
I restored the item and added the sitelink.--Ymblanter (talk) 22:02, 18 January 2021 (UTC)
@Ymblanter:, Extremely grateful dear admin, thanks for helping out. also a request to you, while i was researching on wiki data pages, i found out many kashmiri with wikidata pages, i tried to research on them but i found out nothing at all, no notable source, also looks like promotional to me. also checked that they have done it multiple times in past and also they are making the pages everyday, kind of spamming i guess. kindly have a look if you feel like something is wrong,(I might be wrong,forgive me for that, but i just think they are not notable).

Два элемента по одной темеEdit

Здравствуйте, Ymblanter. В Викиданных есть форум, на который можно обращаться с подобной проблемой? Пока решил обратиться к Вам. Элементы Q48834311 и Q99693681 на одну тематику. Вот только первый создан раньше, но практически пустой, кроме одного идентификатора, а второй создан позже, но имеет больше утверждений и идентификаторов. Я перенёс ссылку итальянской Википедии из первого элемента во второй, и первый теперь, по сути, не имеет смысла. Ещё у меня также вопрос: почему я не могу добавить итальянское название и описание, я должен обладать какими-то правами на это, или должен поменять язык в настройках? — Владлен Манилов (talk) 12:54, 17 March 2021 (UTC)

Я объединил два элемента. Подходящий форум - Wikidata:Project Chat. Да, Вы видите только те языки, которые у Вас прописаны в meta:babel. Я установел себе гаджет label lister, он позволяет добавлять описания на любых языках.--Ymblanter (talk) 14:15, 17 March 2021 (UTC)

Links to redirects (again)Edit

Hi, I found your close of the Wikidata links to redirects RFC from a few years ago and would like to discuss if anything has progressed since then. I'm not sure if you're aware, but there is currently a big push to delete many (possibly thousands) articles on borderline notable sportspeople who meet a NSPORTS SNG notability requirement (attended an Olympic Games, played professional football, cricket etc) but who don't meet the GNG. I am against this, but it seems like it is a lost battle.

This week one of those articles was deleted. I recreated it as a redirect to the team's historical list of players, but couldn't recreate the Wikidata link. Q22280175 to be specific, but there will soon be a lot more of these.

In 2018 when the links discussion was held, was there widespread use of the redirect templates, like R from member or R from shortname? Could it be possible to create a list of which of these templates allows for a Wikidata link (like member of group), and which don't (like spelling errors, capitalisation etc). Ping User:Lydia_Pintscher_(WMDE). The-Pope (talk) 04:11, 21 April 2021 (UTC)

I am sorry but I do not have any specific knowledge of the issue. Asking at Project Chat would be more efficient.--Ymblanter (talk) 05:49, 21 April 2021 (UTC)

Call for participation in the interview study with Wikidata editorsEdit

Dear Ymblanter,

I hope you are doing good,

I am Kholoud, a researcher at the King’s College London, and I work on a project as part of my PhD research that develops a personalized recommendation system to suggest Wikidata items for the editors based on their interests and preferences. I am collaborating on this project with Elena Simperl and Miaojing Shi.

I would love to talk with you to know about your current ways to choose the items you work on in Wikidata and understand the factors that might influence such a decision. Your cooperation will give us valuable insights into building a recommender system that can help improve your editing experience.

Participation is completely voluntary. You have the option to withdraw at any time. Your data will be processed under the terms of UK data protection law (including the UK General Data Protection Regulation (UK GDPR) and the Data Protection Act 2018). The information and data that you provide will remain confidential; it will only be stored on the password-protected computer of the researchers. We will use the results anonymized (?) to provide insights into the practices of the editors in item selection processes for editing and publish the results of the study to a research venue. If you decide to take part, we will ask you to sign a consent form, and you will be given a copy of this consent form to keep.

If you’re interested in participating and have 15-20 minutes to chat (I promise to keep the time!), please either contact me on kholoudsaa@gmail.com or use this form https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSdmmFHaiB20nK14wrQJgfrA18PtmdagyeRib3xGtvzkdn3Lgw/viewform?usp=sf_link with your choice of the times that work for you.

I’ll follow up with you to figure out what method is the best way for us to connect.

Please contact me using the email mentioned above if you have any questions or require more information about this project.

Thank you for considering taking part in this research.

Regards

Kholoud

НТЗ для крымских объектовEdit

Добрый день. Не знаю к кому обращаться по поводу проблем на ВикиДанных, поэтому напишу Вам. Участник Infovarius сделал у крымских объектов приоритет России выше Украины. Тем самым нарушив НТЗ в статьях различных вики-проектов. Я написал ему на странице обсуждения, но проблему он, видимо, исправлять не собирается. Что делать в таком случае? --Mitte27 (talk) 09:38, 8 June 2021 (UTC)

Wikidata:Project_chat#Subway_modelling_on_P197Edit

Ярослав, добрый день. Прошу вас оценить тему на форуме. Возможно, я слишком нахраписто стал возражать товарищу и отменять его правки, а здесь так не принято? Michgrig (talk) 22:14, 15 June 2021 (UTC)

Ну, я ничего особенного там не вижу, к сожалению, пока приняли участие только три человека. Можно попробовать на Wikidata:WikiProject Railways дать объявление, но, вообще, эти темы тут мало кого интересуют.--Ymblanter (talk) 20:06, 16 June 2021 (UTC)
Да ладно, вроде они меня убедили. Я, скорее, зацепился за формулировки в стартовом сообщении. Michgrig (talk) 21:08, 16 June 2021 (UTC)

Тонкий вопрос.Edit

Добое время суток. Тонкий вопрос

Вот у него Q84514 указано место рождения Q51367625, но когда он родился, Бельгии-то еще не было, а вот в информации об этом городе указано государство Бельгия. А потом это автоматом транслируется на рувики в статью про персону. Но в в люом сдучае, гос принадлежность города была не всегда Бельгия. Как бы это указать в Q51367625.Longbowman (talk) 17:30, 24 June 2021 (UTC)

По-моему, надо в Q84514 какой-то квалификатор поставить. Но, вообще, я в луа не очень.--Ymblanter (talk) 17:41, 24 June 2021 (UTC)
@Longbowman, с этим вопросом можно обратиться на форум Викиданных в рувики, там такие вопросы чаще всего решают.
Ярослав, вы правы, это решается проставлением квалификаторов дат начала и окончания у административно-территориальных единиц верхнего уровня. Michgrig (talk) 05:22, 25 June 2021 (UTC)

Bot requestsEdit

Hi, I'm mentoring a couple of new bot editors via Outreachy, if you could have a look at Wikidata:Requests for permissions/Bot/AmmarBot 2 and Wikidata:Requests for permissions/Bot/NiraliBot (also Wikidata:Requests for permissions/Bot/AmmarBot - but that's more complicated) to make sure they're not hanging around for too long, that would be really great please. :-) Thanks.

Добрый день. Мы в рувики заблокировали статью о незаконном ресурсе от неавтоподтвержденных, чтобы не добавляли ссылки на наркосайты.

Q107746660 deletionEdit

Hi Ymblanter, thanks for taking action on my deletion request for Q107746660 yesterday. Ironically, I now found that this particular page by User:Sibinia was actually not a hoax after all – the item is a notable manuscript codex and actually known under the name of "Псалтирь Ивана Грозного" [1] or "Ivan the Terrible Psalter" [2]. Unfortunately I've still not found the true source of the full-text digitized file that was uploaded on Commons, but other than that, the entry seems legit now. Would you like to restore it? Thanks, – Future Perfect at Sunrise (talk) 10:04, 24 September 2021 (UTC)

  Done, though the images look very strange to me - I have a bit of understanding of Russian art, and they do not look to me like 16th century Russia.--Ymblanter (talk) 10:12, 24 September 2021 (UTC)
Thanks a lot. You're quite right, of course – the manuscript is 14th century, not 16th, and of course it wasn't authored by Ivan, but it's conventionally named after him, apparently because it was in his possession at some point. An interesting and high-quality book in any case; I might even end up writing an article about it. Future Perfect at Sunrise (talk) 10:19, 24 September 2021 (UTC)
Sure, no problem. Will be looking forward to see the article.--Ymblanter (talk) 10:21, 24 September 2021 (UTC)

Квалификатор "по направлению к" для соседних жд станцийEdit

Ярослав, добрый день!
Я как-то вас спрашивал, исходя из чего вы указываете значения квалификатора towards (P5051) для свойства adjacent station (P197), и вы сказали, что основываетесь на границах участков, которые приведены в перечне станций "Тарифные расстояния" (видимо, имея в виду "Тарифное руководство №4").
И вот теперь я больше погрузился в тему, и возник дополнительный вопрос. Для станций Киевского направления МЖД вы указали участки "Москва - Солнечная" и "Солнечная - Лесной Городок" (например, для Переделкина). Но в ТР №4 я виду участок Москва-Сортировочная-Киевская - Бекасово-I (здесь или здесь в Книге 2). Вы пользовались каким-то другим источником или ошиблись? Michgrig (talk) 17:31, 3 October 2021 (UTC)

Да, я сейчас посмотрел, в моём файле Москва-Сортировочная-Киевская - Бекасово-I, но там нет станций Новопеределкино и аэропорт Внуково. Думаю, они там в какой-то момент появятся, и участки станут до Солнечной и Лесного Городка (так как тарифные участки они ставят между пересадочными станциями), но, в принципе, пока можно везде поставить Бекасово и Киевский вокзал (кроме самих ответвлений).--Ymblanter (talk) 17:40, 3 October 2021 (UTC)
Понял, спасибо! Michgrig (talk) 16:09, 5 October 2021 (UTC)

Q24699193Edit

Hello,

could you please restore this item? It has been recreated: Q108804436. Hence both should be merged.

Nomen ad hoc (talk) 11:31, 5 October 2021 (UTC).

I do not see the notability bin the recreated item, may be it should be deleted?--Ymblanter (talk) 11:33, 5 October 2021 (UTC)
It fulfils a structural need, as the item's subject has authored a cited (and mentioned on French WP) article. Nomen ad hoc (talk) 13:01, 5 October 2021 (UTC).
Sorry, I see that you already tried to discuss with the administrator who deleted the item, Nikki, but they did not agree. Given that the item had serious issues, you should continue discussing with them and not involve other admins (and certainly not without telling them about this discussion).--Ymblanter (talk) 13:09, 5 October 2021 (UTC)
Well, I thought you remembered that it was you to ask me to recreate an item about this person. The logical consequence sounded me to restore the deleted item and to merge it with the other.
Furthermore, Nikki didn't answered my last messages.
Nomen ad hoc (talk) 14:19, 5 October 2021 (UTC).
This is quite possible, but if I see the item which was deleted with the comment that it was retargeted, made a complete mess, and the notability is not obvious, it is much safer to add needed information to the recreated item.--Ymblanter (talk) 14:58, 5 October 2021 (UTC)
OK, which information is needed please? Nomen ad hoc (talk) 08:53, 25 May 2022 (UTC).
Sorry, may be I was not clear enough: I am not going to restore the item. Ymblanter (talk) 09:47, 25 May 2022 (UTC)

Globally-locked userEdit

Hi, Ymblanter, sorry to bother you – you're the only person I know to be an admin here. Just wanted to give a heads-up that all of this is block evasion by a globally-locked LTA (see here), as is all of this and this. I've no idea how you handle these things here, so just dumping this in your lap in case any action is needed. Regards, Justlettersandnumbers (talk) 18:41, 9 October 2021 (UTC)

Thanks. The user is already blocked indef, and the IPs are dynamic and a week old, so there is probably nothing else to do here right now, but I will have this in mind if new socks show up. Ymblanter (talk) 18:55, 9 October 2021 (UTC)

Железнодорожная станция vs. остановочный пунктEdit

Ярослав, добрый день!
Когда я создаю или редактирую элементы, посвященные российским ЖД объектам, то я выбираю значение свойства instance of (P31) так, как это обычно принято: если у объекта есть путевое развитие, то это railway station (Q55488), а если путевого развития нет, то это railway stop (Q55678) (да вы и сами недавно то же самое писали). Valishchevo (Q97446829) на схеме линии показывается как о.п.; в названии статьи (несуществующей) об этом объекте написано "платформа"; Яндекс карта показывает его тоже как о.п. Поэтому мне не очень понятно, почему вы заменили значение свойства instance of (P31) с "о.п." на "станция", причем только здесь. Michgrig (talk) 08:27, 17 December 2021 (UTC)

Добрый день. Если я иду в элемент Q55488 и оттуда в статью английской Википедии, я ничего такого не вижу. Там написано "A train station, railway station, railroad station or depot is a railway facility or area where trains regularly stop to load or unload passengers, freight or both". Под это подходят все наши станции. Я понимаю, что в России есть различия между станцией, платформой, разъездом и остановочным пунктом, но я не думаю, что у нас есть достаточно данных, чтобы эти различия фиксировать самим и добавлять в Викиданные. Вы же видели, как иностранные коллеги давеча отреагировали на сам факт наличия того, что railway stop может быть добавлен как P31.--Ymblanter (talk) 08:43, 17 December 2021 (UTC)
С другой стороны, в англовики есть такая статья, в которой написано "A station stop usually does not have any tracks other than the main tracks, and may or may not have switches (points, crossovers).", что как раз подходит под русское понимание о.п.
Разницу между платформой и остановочным пунктом я, честно говоря, не уверен, что понимаю. На мой взгляд, платформа - это исключительно бетонная плита, на которой пассажиры ожидают поезда, но, возможно, это не единственное значение этого слова.
Вы же видели, как иностранные коллеги давеча отреагировали на сам факт наличия того, что railway stop может быть добавлен как P31.
Эта фраза звучит прямо как из уст Путина или Лаврова :)))
Насколько я понял, основная проблема была не в факте использования двух вариантов значения р31, а в том, что для обоих этих значений нет общего верхнеуровневого значения, поэтому приходится в запросах использовать ИЛИ.
Но в целом, если вы считаете, что лучше для всех объектов использовать railway station (Q55488), я так и буду делать для дальнейших станций. Michgrig (talk) 09:09, 17 December 2021 (UTC)
Да, я бы, честно говоря, использовал railway station для всех такого типа объектов. Мне кажется, мы решаем имеющиеся проблемы и ничего не теряем. Если потом кому-то захочется взять тарифное руководство и пройти по всем станциям, можно будет придумать для этого какой-нибудь квалификатор. Ymblanter (talk) 09:23, 17 December 2021 (UTC)
Хорошо, договорились. Michgrig (talk) 09:24, 17 December 2021 (UTC)
Замечательно, спасибо. Ymblanter (talk) 09:45, 17 December 2021 (UTC)
Сейчас прохожусь по существующим российским объектам с railway stop (Q55678), удаляю его и потом добавлю туда railway station (Q55488).

How we will see unregistered usersEdit

Hi!

You get this message because you are an admin on a Wikimedia wiki.

When someone edits a Wikimedia wiki without being logged in today, we show their IP address. As you may already know, we will not be able to do this in the future. This is a decision by the Wikimedia Foundation Legal department, because norms and regulations for privacy online have changed.

Instead of the IP we will show a masked identity. You as an admin will still be able to access the IP. There will also be a new user right for those who need to see the full IPs of unregistered users to fight vandalism, harassment and spam without being admins. Patrollers will also see part of the IP even without this user right. We are also working on better tools to help.

If you have not seen it before, you can read more on Meta. If you want to make sure you don’t miss technical changes on the Wikimedia wikis, you can subscribe to the weekly technical newsletter.

We have two suggested ways this identity could work. We would appreciate your feedback on which way you think would work best for you and your wiki, now and in the future. You can let us know on the talk page. You can write in your language. The suggestions were posted in October and we will decide after 17 January.

Thank you. /Johan (WMF)

Скрыть правкиEdit

Добрый день! Есть участник с мягко говоря неоднозначным вкладом в виде описаний элементов, его глобальный вклад аналогичен. Хотелось бы скрыть эти правки, а не просто отменить, ну и возможно глобально заблокировать учетку. Пишу к Вам, а не на Форум, так как врядли смогу все это объяснить по-английски, да и для понимания правок тоже нужно знание русского языка. --Ksc~ruwiki (talk) 16:53, 22 January 2022 (UTC)

Q6310797 / Jumapao (surname)Edit

Hello Ymblanter, item Q6310797 is strange: you deleted it a few months ago, but it's still available with SPARQL (Q6310797 (query)). Could you have a look please ? Thank you --- Caméléon Diaphane (talk) 23:22, 1 February 2022 (UTC)

I am sorry I am not the right person to answer this.--Ymblanter (talk) 06:17, 2 February 2022 (UTC)

Question about updating markAdminsEdit

Доброе утро Ymblanter,

I saw that you updated the macAdmins gadget. You entered the new stewards. But why did you remove user Melos? He's still active as a steward. Can you please check that again? Спасибо и наилучшими пожеланиями --Funkruf (talk) 00:22, 1 March 2022 (UTC)

He is retiring, see the talk page of the gadget.--Ymblanter (talk) 06:21, 1 March 2022 (UTC)
Thanks for the information. --Funkruf (talk) 01:31, 2 March 2022 (UTC)

Request rollbackEdit

I would like to request for rollback rights to bring back the vandalism and test edits. I hope there will be many more vandalisms here in the future. I already have rollback rights on bnwiki.my information Thank you.Prince ovy (talk) 06:05, 1 March 2022 (UTC)

You only started actively editing here three days ago. Please continue your work and in a few months apply at the request permission page. Ymblanter (talk) 06:24, 1 March 2022 (UTC)
@Ymblanter can you see [3] Almost a day has passed.thank you Prince ovy (talk) 15:29, 7 April 2022 (UTC)

БлокировкаEdit

@Ymblanter, будьте добры, заблокируйте этого вандала. Calvinn1 (talk) 15:23, 15 March 2022 (UTC)

  Done Ymblanter (talk) 16:12, 15 March 2022 (UTC)
Спасибо! Calvinn1 (talk) 16:13, 15 March 2022 (UTC)
@Ymblanter, не могли бы ещё, пожалуйста, это заблокировать. Или лучше предупреждения выдать, мол не нужно указывать свой личный фан-аккаунт в ВД? calvin (talk) 18:55, 22 March 2022 (UTC)
А в чём проблемы с этими правками?--Ymblanter (talk) 18:58, 22 March 2022 (UTC)
Ну я как понимаю аноним добавляет фанатский Telegram-аккаунт в элемент, когда там уже имеется официальная ссылка. calvin (talk) 19:02, 22 March 2022 (UTC)
При двух правках нект смысла блокировать, скорее всего, он тут больше не появится.--Ymblanter (talk) 19:29, 22 March 2022 (UTC)

¿Por qué revierten ediciones y bloquean?Edit

Si no se aporto fuentes que corrobore que tenia exactamente 50 y CERO años de edad. En TLoU2 Joel según el Fandom esta a principios de sus 50s (o sea que puede tener cualquier edad entre 50 y 53 años) no directamente 50... Ven que ustedes son bravucones vándalos! Que asco me dan! Bloquean el artículo y me banean, creando además discusiones absurdas ¿cuantos años tienen? Su comportamiento parece el de un niño fanboy que quiere que las cosas sean como el quiere porque si. Impresionante que tengan más de 30 AÑOS y actuen así, hombres grandes, maldita sea. Impresionante 171.6.5.159 01:06, 26 March 2022 (UTC)

This makes it pretty clear you should not be here. Ymblanter (talk) 07:02, 26 March 2022 (UTC)
Al menos te fijaste en la fuente Fandom, si lo hubieras hecho sabrías que me da la razón a mi y no a ustedes. En ningún lado dice que nació en 1984! Dice que nació a principios o mediados de los 80s (Principios = 80 a 83 / Mediados = 84 a 86). Y si, tienes razón, con gente como ustedes es imposible, sorprende que ustedes estén a cargo. 46.166.163.178 13:50, 26 March 2022 (UTC)

Pi bot task adviceEdit

Hi Ymblanter. Yesterday I coded up Wikidata:Requests for permissions/Bot/Pi bot 25 (properties for deletion page management), which was working fine when testing with my account. However, I've since realised that one of the pages it updates, Template:Watchlist summary/PFD, is a protected page and only admins can edit it. I'm not too sure how to resolve this - either reducing the page protection, or getting admin status for Pi bot (or Pi admin bot?) I guess. Would appreciate your thoughts on the best way forward here. Thanks. Mike Peel (talk) 05:21, 9 April 2022 (UTC)

I think both are in principle possible, but it is better to discuss the issue on a broader noticeboard, either Project chat or the Administrators Noticeboard. Ymblanter (talk) 05:39, 9 April 2022 (UTC)
Thanks, I've followed up at Wikidata:Administrators'_noticeboard#Bot-maintaining_protected_page?. Thanks. Mike Peel (talk) 14:49, 9 April 2022 (UTC)
Now at Wikidata:Requests for permissions/Administrator/Pi admin bot. Thanks. Mike Peel (talk) 18:08, 13 April 2022 (UTC)

Why did you delete my page. Y'all are always messing with people! I filled out all that info just for you to delete it the next day man thats crazyEdit

Y'all are always messing with people! I filled out all that info just for you to delete it the next day man thats crazy. Smoove Diego (talk) 20:30, 15 June 2022 (UTC)

Because you are not notable and the page was in fact spam. Ymblanter (talk) 20:31, 15 June 2022 (UTC)

Rakvere baptist churchEdit

The issue is that Rakvere Karmel congregation (Q61393123) is about congregation (organization) while Commons category appears to about the (old) building of this congregation. I was about to clear this up. If you truely believe that this building is not notable (as indicated in deletion log) then I suppose Commons category shouldn't be linked with Wikidata as matching item doesn't exist. 2001:7D0:81E6:EF80:699E:427:895B:45CB 06:55, 23 June 2022 (UTC)

The Wikipedia article is about the building. Ymblanter (talk) 06:59, 23 June 2022 (UTC)
No, actually it is not. I will restore the item now but please make sure that from thew Commons category there is a way to get to the article and vice versa. Ymblanter (talk) 07:00, 23 June 2022 (UTC)
