Italian (and French) vandalEdit

Hi,
An anonymous user (I do not have his full history on it:) has been repeatedly reverted and blocked on it: and fr: for introducing typographic errors and refusing to abide to agreed upon rules (usually appearing within the 31.191.*.* range cf. https://it.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=STIPEL&action=history and https://fr.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Telecom_Italia_France&action=history). He's trying to dodge his blocking and modify the typography on wikidata (the latest appearances are 31.191.231.157 (talk+ · tag · contribs · filter log · WHOIS · RBLs · proxy check · block user · block log · cross-wiki contribs · checkuser (log)), 31.191.246.195 (talk+ · tag · contribs · filter log · WHOIS · RBLs · proxy check · block user · block log · cross-wiki contribs · checkuser (log)), 31.191.204.87 (talk+ · tag · contribs · filter log · WHOIS · RBLs · proxy check · block user · block log · cross-wiki contribs · checkuser (log))). He has recently created an account AP22FROMIT (talk+ · tag · contribs · filter log · WHOIS · RBLs · proxy check · block user · block log · cross-wiki contribs · checkuser (log)) pursuing his modifications. I ask for his blocking. Thanks, (:Julien:) (talk) 08:18, 8 May 2022 (UTC)

in reality it is @(:Julien:) who insists on entering the wrong name of the companies, despite the fact that I have cited the sources and despite the fact that on his talk page I have indicated the correct name and my reasons. AP22FROMIT (talk) 13:12, 8 May 2022 (UTC)
moreover, after explaining the reasons on his talk page, he never replied to me, interrupting any possibility of clarification between me and him. AP22FROMIT (talk) 13:15, 8 May 2022 (UTC)
This is the known Vodafone vandal who gets continuously reported here. --Dorades (talk) 09:58, 12 May 2022 (UTC)

Re-adding this section after its automatic archival. I want some human to take responsibility and say "we're not gonna do jack shit abt the Vodafone vandal". (:Julien:) (talk) 05:51, 20 May 2022 (UTC)

Deletion of Q64136860Edit

Dear,

I have requested numerous times to delete the Q64136860 entry. I have stated that the profile cases distress and thus, not deleting it constitutes a harassment.

Furthermore, the profile contains false information.

Kind regards. Tymur Gabuniya

Further background can be seen at User talk:Wwrick10. I suggest we remove (either delete or mark deprecated) any unreferenced statements which the subject states are false, starting with affiliation (P1416) which has been contested. Are any of the other statements disputed? — Martin (MSGJ · talk) 12:23, 11 May 2022 (UTC)
@Wwrick10: following up. I have marked that statement deprecated. I can simply delete if you prefer. Are any of the other statements disputed? — Martin (MSGJ · talk) 11:20, 12 May 2022 (UTC)
I don't think that disputed information is the actual problem here. Based on the conversation I had with User:Wwrick10 on their user talk page, I think there is some real life conflict where the subject is involved, all completely outside Wikimedia projects. However, Wwrick10 claims that the items was deliberately created to harass them which I think is clearly not the case per its revision history. The item creator has created plenty of similar items about researchers and their thesises in the past.
Mind that there is a data item about the subject's PhD thesis at Three essays on economics of predictability of stock returns (Q64136847) which was apparently submitted to this NOVA school in question. That item backlinks to Tymur Gabuniya (Q64136860). The thesis and its metadata can be downloaded from http://hdl.handle.net/10362/11839.
The problem here is that the involved items Q64136860 and Q64136847 both meet the notability requirements per Wikidata:Notability; as much as I am aware the information displayed is also reasonably correct, although very incomplete and not well referenced. If we consider a deletion here, it should be done along the Wikidata:Living people policy, but at this point I have not seen reasonable evidence that this is appropriate here. —MisterSynergy (talk) 12:07, 12 May 2022 (UTC)
Well, whatever somebody (NOVA in this case) puts on-line does not mean anything. I can give a link into the linkedin profile of Tymur Gabuniya without any mentioning of NOVA if you will find it is easier to delete the whole profile in that case. Wwrick10 (talk) 10:55, 15 May 2022 (UTC)
Dear Sir/Madam,
So what about the deletion request.
Is there any update? Wwrick10 (talk) 10:04, 17 May 2022 (UTC)
The deletion request will be handled on Wikidata:Requests for deletions#Q64136860, not here. --Ameisenigel (talk) 13:47, 19 May 2022 (UTC)

undeletion request for Unbill (Q111748064)Edit

@MisterSynergy: Dear admins,

I would like to request the undeletion of https://www.wikidata.org/wiki/Q111748064 (German Unbill).

This word is the linguistic root of w:de:Unbillige Härte and Q19969813; and the opposite of equity (Q17713266) (formerly Q111748062) in the German language.

Kind regards, --Abwertungsvokabel (talk) 19:14, 16 May 2022 (UTC)

It's restored. Please work on it and add references. —MisterSynergy (talk) 20:47, 16 May 2022 (UTC)
@MisterSynergy: Thanks. But why are you deleting items which are connected to existing items by at least 1 statement?--Abwertungsvokabel (talk) 08:57, 17 May 2022 (UTC)
Backlinks may indicate notability, but forward links do not. —MisterSynergy (talk) 11:58, 17 May 2022 (UTC)

@MisterSynergy: If the opposite of something is notable, how could it itself be not?--Abwertungsvokabel (talk) 14:11, 17 May 2022 (UTC)

Edit request on talkpageheader : BisEdit

Hi, nobody answered to this request that has died being archived, so I repost as it’s definitely an admin job if I’m not mistaken.

Can an admin take a look at MediaWiki_talk:Talkpageheader#c-PAC2-2022-05-05T16:34:00.000Z-Edit_request_2 ? It seems Jarekt who handled the previous one is not very active these days.

It’s about adding a template that describes items to talk pages, {{Item Documentation}}. This needs an answer, even if negative for some reason :) author  TomT0m / talk page 14:05, 18 May 2022 (UTC)

To keep discussion in one place, I have moved Ameisenigel's reply to MediaWiki_talk:Talkpageheader#Edit_request_2. I am also watching so we will resolve it over there :) — Martin (MSGJ · talk) 14:58, 18 May 2022 (UTC)

Some IPsEdit

These IPs created a number of items that are linked each other but otherwise unused and have no reference. Can someone take a look?--GZWDer (talk) 21:04, 18 May 2022 (UTC)

Interwikilink (ml) correction for RomanticismEdit

Please do help to update the interwikilink (ml) for Romanticism to ml:കാല്പനികത്വം, from the existing one ml:കാല്പനികത, which is now a disambiguation page. - Harithvh (talk) 21:55, 18 May 2022 (UTC)
