urban area (Q702492)/urban area in Nordic countries (Q6566301)Edit

Items involved: Q702492Talk, Q6566301Talk Status:     not resolved

Urban area = sv: Tätort = no: Tettsted This is a conflict, the swedish word coult not be saved because there is a page called "Urban areas in Sweden" that corspond to the swedish word. A good solution is to merge the latest mentioned page in the page "Urban area". Krg (talk) 23:09, 1 January 2014 (UTC)

@Lavallen: Thoughts? --Izno (talk) 13:30, 10 January 2014 (UTC)
The English article "Urban area" "Q702492" is "International". There is also a "Nordic" standard (Sweden, Norway, Finland and Denmark) from 1960 who have another formal standard. (The difference is maybe that a Nordic urban area often is smaller and maybe have larger distances between the houses, compared with an international.) But that standard also allow some local differences between the nations. (In Sweden we are counting the summer and holiday homes separatly, and do not allow to many of them, why a Norwegian urban area does not always fit into the Swedish standard.) SO, I guess we need separate items for "International", "Nordic", "Swedish" and "Norwegian" urban areas. I know that also the Norwegian definition is a little separate from the "Nordic standard" from 1960, so I guess that also need an Item of it own. I do not know if we have any items about Finnish or Danish urban areas and if they have any differences from the Nordic standard. So, I guess we can rename Q6566301 to "Urban area in the Nordic nations" or something like that. Some of the sitelinks maybe have to be moved to "Q12813115". The Danish (a redirect) and the Italian looks like they definitly have to be moved to that item. In Sweden we also have some other definitions named "Fritidshusområde", "Småort" and "Arbetsplatsområde" who are related to Tätort, but they not the same thing. -- Lavallen (talk) 15:15, 10 January 2014 (UTC)
I haven't yet got a reply so I write here, even though I don't think this is right place. Shouldn't "Urban areas of Sweden" be changed to "Urban areas in Sweden" as the Wikipedia article is called? --IRISZOOM (talk) 01:55, 23 January 2014 (UTC)

Cantonese (Q9186)/Cantonese (Q7033959)Edit

Items involved: Q9186Talk, Q7033959Talk Status:     not resolved

There are two languages/dialects known as Cantonese: Cantonese (Q9186) (Guangzhou) and Cantonese (Q7033959) (Yue). But some links in Cantonese (Q9186) about Yue. Need somebody who knows Chinese. --putnik 04:17, 5 January 2014 (UTC)

cf Wikidata:Interwiki_conflicts/Unresolved/2013#Q9186.2FQ7033959_.28Yue_Chinese.2FCantonese.29 --Zuphilip (talk) 20:36, 5 January 2014 (UTC)
"Yue" is used by Mandarin speaking people and ISO only, Cantonese and Westerners call this language Cantonese. Of course "Cantonese" is more useful for the English users. (And, Cantonese may also referred to the ethnic group speaks Cantonese.) --Fongyun (talk) 04:03, 3 March 2014 (UTC)
If we go by the linguistic definition, Yue Chinese is the name for the branch of languages and includes Cantonese, which is treated as the prestige dialect of the group. So Cantonese would be a subcategory of Yue Chinese. - M0rphzone (talk) 19:45, 17 March 2014 (UTC)

The Tatler (Q1613096)/Tatler (Q15078212)Edit

Items involved: Q1613096Talk, Q15078212Talk Status:     in doubt

The German wikipedia article under Q1613096 refers to both entities. --GVogeler (talk) 07:45, 6 January 2014 (UTC)

I tried to improve it and collect the items with a focus on the 1709 magazine in The Tatler (Q1613096). The English article en:Tatler speaks only about the new magazine (from 1901). The Spanish Wikpedia seems to treat both in equal parts. Can someone check the Russian Wikipedia? Should it better be seperated because there is also a Russian version of the magazine? --Zuphilip (talk) 12:05, 6 January 2014 (UTC)
ru-wiki article is only about new one (after 1901). -- Vlsergey (talk) 03:42, 10 February 2014 (UTC)
I think it's fixed now. The Tatler (Q1613096) has a bunch of articles, each of which discuss various magazines named the Tatler which have appeared at various times since 1709. These should really each get their own items so each can have their own start date and end date.
I moved finnish and russian sitelinks to Tatler (Q15078212) as Google translate says they only discuss the current version of the magazine published by Conde Nast. Filceolaire (talk) 18:26, 19 February 2014 (UTC)

East Asian Yogācāra (Q349849)Edit

Items involved: Q349849Talk Status:     not resolved

Sorry, I assume this is not an interwiki conflict but Ididn't find an appropiate task force to signalize the problem. The articles from East Asian Yogācāra (Q349849) should be separated in two wikidata items: one should contain the articles about the general notion (en:East Asian Yogācāra, it:Buddhismo Fǎxiāng, no:Faxiang zong) and the other one the Japonese version of it (de:Hossō-shū, fr:Hossō-shū, hu:Hosszó and probably the ru and uk articles as well). I have no idea about the remaining three (ja, ko and zhwiki); and no experience with splitting wikidata items. --Hkoala (talk) 16:48, 7 January 2014 (UTC)

I just have created Q15606337, which seems to be member of the first group... --Zuphilip (talk) 17:07, 7 January 2014 (UTC)
There are now three objects
The English link is the only one who describes both of them in one page, but it has some focus on China. Thus, it connected to the one about China. Can someone look at ja, ko and zhwiki and link them accordingly? --Zuphilip (talk) 21:49, 7 January 2014 (UTC)

bay (Q1124247)/intercolumniation (Q1364172)/vault (Q189771)Edit

Items involved: Q1124247Talk, Q1364172Talk, Q189771Talk Status:     not resolved

The Wikipedia articles this interwiki data item links to seem to describe similar but not really identical concepts.

There is probably more

I'm no architect or art historian and don't speak enough of most of the involved languages to really sort this out, so would appreciate any help on this.

Thanks, --S.K. (talk) 23:10, 8 January 2014 (UTC)

PS: I'm not sure if here is the right place, so pointing me towards such a place is appreciated if it is not.

I moved es and ca-wiki link to intercolumniation (Q1364172). - In the talk page of enwiki also fr:Baie (architecture) was mentioned which is now bay (Q2879412). - I guess that cs:Klenební pole is a subclass of Q189771, because there is already a cswiki attached to it. I guess this needs more clean-up... --Zuphilip (talk) 11:46, 9 January 2014 (UTC)
This might be helpful for German: --Zuphilip (talk) 11:52, 9 January 2014 (UTC)
German has two concepts of measurements: Joch means the distance beween the axes of two columns, Interkolumnium means the distance between two columns measured on the surface. Columns with the same joch can have different interklumnium, depending on the diameter of the column. Joch = Intercolumnium + diameter / Joch - diameter = Intercolumnium.--Giftzwerg 88 (talk) 15:33, 9 September 2014 (UTC)

Lutte Ouvrière (Q870667)Edit

Items involved: Q870667Talk Status:     in doubt

Wikipedia articles referring to a party and its newspaper (which shares the same name as the party) are in the same item. --Wylve (talk) 17:14, 13 January 2014 (UTC)

I haven't found any wikipedia page about the journal, only the French article speaks about both: fr:Lutte_ouvrière. I changed the properties of the object to the political parti, such that at least the linked person will fit into the constraints of member of political party (P102). --Zuphilip (talk) 19:29, 13 January 2014 (UTC)

Project 1143.7 (Q263381)Edit

Items involved: Q263381Talk Status:     not resolved

I'm not sure which are talking about the class and which the ship itself. The en.wp article is obviously more about the ship. --Izno (talk) 03:50, 16 January 2014 (UTC)

Seems to be all fine. This ship is unique for his class, so I think articles for class and ship itself can be mixed. --Winterheart (talk) 03:27, 18 August 2014 (UTC)

Freikörperkultur (Q9300865)/nudism (Q152311)Edit

Items involved: Q9300865Talk, Q152311Talk Status:     not resolved

I believe the Freikörperkultur article should link to the German Freikörperkultur article. I guess I'm getting an error because of linking of Naturism to the German Freikörperkultur site. Kdammers (talk) 05:33, 18 January 2014 (UTC)

Kdammers: To which objects are you refering to? --Zuphilip (talk) 13:05, 18 January 2014 (UTC)

cannibalization (Q1154300)/Cannibal (Q59857)Edit

Items involved: Q1154300Talk, Q59857Talk Status:     not resolved

There are three articles about Cannibalization in English. One is about C in marketing, the next is about C in fiction and the last one about C of machine parts. There also is a disambiguation page, which (unfortunately) is also disambiguating man-eating cannibals etc.

The articles in all the other languages linked at Q1154300 are either about marketing (:ar and :ko), about machine parts (:pl) or both (:nl, :it, :de). None (except the English one) is about fiction.

Therefore I would like to change Q1154300 to link to en:Cannibalization (with or without an additional #Cannibalization), and rename it afterwards, but wikidata will not let me, as the disambiguation seems to be occupied by Cannibal (Q59857).

In my opinion, having this bunch of articles in English is correct, as most articles are quite detailed. Also, not having a bunch of articles in the other languages seems right, as right now, they are not so detailed (also, I guess not all usages of Cannibalization are valid in all of the other languages, eg in German you would rather say "Plagiarism" than "Cannibalization of fiction"). So I give up. --Vwm (talk) 18:13, 20 January 2014 (UTC)

Prirazlomnaya (Q14936000)/Prirazlomnoye field (Q59557)Edit

Items involved: Q14936000Talk, Q59557Talk Status:     not resolved

Hallo dear problemsolvers! maybe the two items could simply be merged, but exactly there is the oil- and gasfield en:Prirazlomnoye field and the building de:Priraslomnaja-platform. Two different details in our natural and man-made environment. So both items should be described a little bit better, links between both items maybe better than a merge, wrong sorted articles should be moved to Priraslomnaja Q14936000 (to move the platform for recycling or for usage in greenpeace-gazprom-whalewatching to reach a longterm economical and ecological bonus is here not possible, unfortunately, global thinking may find real renewable solutions). Is it possible to connect articles by REDIRECTS in Wikidata, so in en-WP the existing REDIRECT en:Prirazlomnaya platform to en:Prirazlomnoye field#Development should be used; and vice versa the (not written) REDIRECT de:Priraslomnoje oilfield (to de:Priraslomnaja platform and similar articles in the other WP-projects. If direct Wikidata-REDIRECTS are not possible, are old interwikilinks to Redirects a possible solution to link articles? --LudwigSebastianMicheler (talk) 23:25, 25 January 2014 (UTC)

backlight (Q574291)/Q12810597Edit

Items involved: Q574291Talk, Q12810597Talk, Q1797988Talk Status:     not resolved

--Q574291 is about the definition of the term "backlight" but holds interwiki's to "TV that uses this technique" (Retroiluminación LED, Lysdiode-bagbelyst LCD-skærm), standard LED-TV and backlight itself (Rétroéclairage, Hintergrundbeleuchtung). This item should only be connected to the concept of backlight itself. Q12810597 and Q1797988 should be merged to form one item to articles about LED-TV's and another item should be created to connect to "Backlit LED-TV's". Something like that anyway :/ EvilFreD (talk) 06:39, 30 January 2014 (UTC)

printed circuit board (Q173350)/perfboard (Q3375299)Edit

Items involved: Q173350Talk, Q3375299Talk Status:     not resolved

(Sorry - I'm new in the interwiki subject :) Problem:
In enwiki 'PCB' and 'Perfboard' are separate subjects. (The same sems to be valid for French.)
In dewiki there is only 1 subject covering both:
"Leiterplatte" equals "PCB",
"Leiterplatte#Experimentierplatinen" includes the perfect equivalent of Perfboard: "Lochrasterplatine" (which currently seems not to allow for a direct reference).
As it is, it would be helpful to have "Perfboard" linked to "Leiterplatte#Experimentierplatinen" - which is currently not possible.

cookie (Q13266)/biscuit (Q13270)Edit

Items involved: Q13266Talk, Q13270Talk Status:     not resolved

Differing terminologies have left some issues with interlanguage links. For example, the es.wikipedia page for Q13266 is wikipedia:es:Galleta con chispas de chocolate (specifically discussing those pastries with chocolate chips) because the page for Q13270 is already wikipedia:es:Galleta (these pastries in general).

web marketing (Q3008173)/digital marketing (Q1323528)Edit

Items involved: Q3008173Talk, Q1323528Talk Status:     not resolved

The italian pege about it:Web marketing looks more like a specific case of en:Digital marketing, whilst fr:Cybermarketing seems more a specific aspect of en:Web traffic, which in French doesn't exist. Please notice that Web marketing on is a redirect to en:Online advertising since 2007, but IMHO marketing is a wider concept than advertisiment.

All the articles show very poor references, so it is quite difficult to have an idea. Even if there are subtle differences, I think in some languages a rearrangement of some concepts in different (maybe new) articles will help in sorting them out in a much clearer way.

"Concentration camp" is used in Simple English wikipedia, but "Internment" in English wikipedia. The number of wikipedia connected to "Concentration camp" is more than "Internment". Should they be unified to facilitate readers to go through different language versions? --Fongyun (talk) 15:26, 16 March 2014 (UTC)

I think both are not the same thing, then should not be merged. Also, for example, čeština have two articles: cs:Internace (Internment) and cs:Koncentrační tábor (Concentration camp). Dansk and Deutsch are in the same circumstance. Maybe it is a mistake of English Wikipedia, or explains both themes in the same article. Internment maybe it is wider than concentration camp. --Zerabat (talk) 00:15, 17 March 2014 (UTC)

I don't think the solution here is to link both to the same article, because they're different concepts.

power (Q25107)/political power (Q2101636)Edit

Items involved: Q25107Talk, Q2101636Talk Status:     not resolved

It seems that some wiki distinguish Power (political science) from Power (sociology). As a sociologist, I find this a rather unnecessary division, but for us it means that some interwikis are messed up. On en wiki, there's an article about w:Power (social and political). We need to consider whether we want to have three articles (Power (political science), Power (sociology) and Power (political science and sociology) or just one and clean up the interwikis. I think that power (Q25107) should be the main one, and it should be linked to en w:Power (social and political) which is currently incorrectly linked to more limited political power at Q2101636. While my preferred solution would be to merge all articles on power (s) and power (p), I think we need to 1) retitle power (politics) to Power (political science), 2) create a new entry for power (sociolology) and move the articles between those three families. Most latin ones can be guessed at where they should be (defaulting to Q25107). For non-latin ones... google translate? --Piotrus (talk) 08:40, 31 March 2014 (UTC)

mindfulness (Q15009109)/mindfulness (Q341045)Edit

Items involved: Q15009109Talk, Q341045Talk Status:     not resolved

This began when I removed the interwiki links from the Wikipedia article w:Mindfulness (psychology), which here at Wikidata is mindfulness (Q15009109). I came here to ensure the database for that article would include the links I removed. Right away, I ran into conflicts with mindfulness (Q341045), which holds the links for w:Mindfulness, an article without the "(psychology)" disambiguator. It appears that some of the links at mindfulness (Q341045) have the disambiguator, and perhaps those should go at mindfulness (Q15009109)? Others without qualifiers may need help from those who know the language and can add qualifiers for mindfulness (Q15009109)? I don't know; this is the first time I've ran into conflicts, so I'm not quite sure how to proceed. Thank you for any help you can give! – Paine Ellsworth WD:CLIMAX! 16:42, 13 April 2014 (UTC)

Items involved: Q59697Talk, Q1775444Talk Status:     not resolved

All the links to Hesperus and Phosphorus (morning star) were mixed up. I canceled many but not all wrong links but I don't succeed to reintroduce the correct links to the proper page. Pinea (talk) 21:43, 9 May 2014 (UTC) --Pinea (talk) 22:13, 9 May 2014 (UTC) Let me explain further: A lot of pages related to Hesperus were linked to Phosphorus and viceversa. So the problem was that I had to exchange links and I was not allowed by the system. I had to destroy half of the links before modifying the other half. After several attempts I succeded to fix most of them but not all. For instance I don't know how to handle the eswiki Hespero, still connected to Phosphoros. Moreover I destroyed the links of dewiki hesperos, fiwiki hesperos, eowiki hesperos and nowiki fosforos, and I am not able to link them to the correct page anymore(I really tried only for dewiki). I also don't read chinese, japanese, hindi, persian or arabic titles so I don't have the slightest idea whether they are connected to the proper pages. There are several questions. First why some wiki behave differently than others. Even in wikidata table some links were initially impossible to remove (an error flag was popping out), Gd only knows why. Second the difficulties probably were due to the fact that the software cannot handle easily the replacement of a wrong link with another one. Rather than simply telling that I cannot make the link because another page from the same wiki is already linked, it should suggest me what to do, for instance could allow the replacement provided I also suggest a new link for the other page previously linked there.Pinea (talk) 20:49, 23 May 2014 (UTC)

Three way conflict; There are three different things, but different languages decided to merge (different) two or all three into one wikipedia article.

The russian brandname for this however simply is the generic term "Reactor for fast Neutrons". The russian wikipedia has only one article for both topics. The latter two should however not be confused because there are other manufatures for "Reactor for fast Neutrons".

Problem in NL: in the Dutch of Belgium (Flemish), I believe “kwets” is an appropriate label, but “pruim” would also be right.

Pages linked to Q6401215:

If this item includes all species in the subgenus Prunus of the genus Prunus, then EN Plum and FR Prune appear to be correctly linked to Q6401215.

AF Pruim appears (my understanding of Afrikaans is limited) to refer to Prunus domestica only and to distinguish Prunus armeniaca, so perhaps it should be linked to Q44120 instead.

DE Pflaume, EN Prunus domestica, FR Prunier, and LB Promm appear to be correctly linked to Q44120.

NL Pruim purports to refer to Prunus domestica but also includes substantial discussion and photos of Japanese plums that are not Prunus domestica, so I believe it should be linked to Q6401215 instead (and the taxonomy box amended accordingly).

I cannot comment on the other pages linked to Q44120.

plum (Q13223298)


EN plum/subspecies of plum (Prunus domestica subsp. domestica)

NL Kwets/ --

DE Zwetschge/Unterart der Art Pflaume (Prunus domestica)

These are all appropriate.

Pages linked to Q13223298:

BAR Zwetschgn; DE Zwetschge, EN Zwetschge, and NL Kwets appear to be correctly linked to Q13223298.

FR Prunier de Damas refers principally to Prunus domestica var. insititia (or Prunus insititia) and also lists, e.g., Prunus domestica subsp. syriaca as a variety of Prunier de Damas, so linking FR Prunier de Damas to Q13223298 appears not to be appropriate. I suggest it might be linked to Q149195 instead. However, the French language apparently treats “quetsche” (which is a close cognate of zwetschge, Prunus domestica subsp. domestica, originating from the parts of France that once spoke German) and “prunier de Damas” (damson) as synonymous, so advice from someone with a sound grasp of French and Prunus taxonomy is needed.

Prunus domestica subsp. insititia (Q149195)


EN Prunus domestica subsp. insititia/subspecies of plants, Damson

Pages linked to Q149195:

DE Kriechen-Pflaume, EN Damson, and ES Prunus domestica subsp. insititia appear to be correctly linked to Q149195.

FR Quetsche purports to refer to a variety of Prunus domestica subsp. insititia, but I believe the entire text (except the gallery) may be good as a discussion of Prunus domestica subsp. domestica, so linking FR Quetsche to Q149195 may not be appropriate. I suggest it might be linked to Q13223298 instead. However, the French language apparently treats “quetsche” (which is a close cognate of zwetschge, Prunus domestica subsp. domestica, originating from the parts of France that once spoke German) and “prunier de Damas” (damson) as synonymous, so advice from someone with a sound grasp of French and Prunus taxonomy is needed.

As far as I can tell (as a hobby planter also) there is a need to stick to the latin names to keep seperate the different concepts as there lures also Prunus (Q190545) as well. So i think one of the three items Prunus subg. Prunus (Q6401215)/Prunus domestica (Q44120)/Prunus (Q190545) is redundant. So lets explain plums and the relatives: 1. Prunus genus: very broad concept of different plants like cherries, apricots, almonds and plums 2. prunus subgenus prunus: Includes plums and prunus spinosa 3. Prunus domestica (plums), most of the different fruits belong to this species. However although some of the fruits look very similar in fact they are not the same, but they all belong to this group 4. prunus domestica subsp. domestica. Zwetschge is a very special subspecies of plum. You can store it for some weeks, you can dry it very well, flesh adheres not to the stone, it is also used for destilling Schnaps. Other plums are watery and will be gone within a few days. Q13223298 seems approprate, however dawiki Blomme (frugt) and stqwiki Oachteboom seek to describe the broader concept of plums. The frenchPrunier de Damas has no taxon, but lists the different forms of subspecies so this belongs to the broader concept of Plums. There seem to be several redundancies in the french wiki and also different names for ther same thing. 5. Prunus domestica subsp. insititia is also a very special subspecies however the names are many and sometimes the same name is used for different plants or fruits. The greek Δαμασκηνιά however seems to describe prunus domestica. French frwiki Quetsche seems to describe prunus domestika subsp. domestica but gives it another taxon. gawiki Daimsín: don´t know, is a substub. iowiki Quecho seems me to be prunus domestica subsp. domestica. --Giftzwerg 88 (talk) 13:33, 9 September 2014 (UTC)

contralto (Q37137)/alto (Q6983813)Edit

Items involved: Q37137Talk, Q6983813Talk Status:     not resolved

This two items are about deep womans voices so it seems to be possible to merge the two items. However the term kontraalto(contralto) and alto describe different concepts in some langunages, in some it is the same. In some languages the contralto means a very low womans voice like Zarah Leander, similar to tenor. In other langugaes as italian contralto and alto is the same but only contralto is used. So it is necessary to use one item for the general concept of deep womans voices and one only for the concept of womans voices in tenor range. I find no way to tell which link in which item describes the general and which one the "deeper" concept. --Giftzwerg 88 (talk) 11:45, 9 September 2014 (UTC)

psychoactive drug (Q3706669)/recreational drug use (Q7708739)Edit

Items involved: Q3706669Talk, Q7708739Talk Status:     not resolved

The fi:wikipedia article Q3706669/Päihde deals with intoxicating substances used for recreational purposes but the links to other languages redirect to articles dealing with psychoactive drugs used for variety of purposes. Correct english link would be to article Recreational drug use. In the en:wikipedia article Psychoactive drugs there is a link to fi:wikipedia article Psykoaktiivinen aine and that is correct. When I try to change the english link in Q3706669 to Recreational drug use, an error message pops up saying that it cannot be done because Recreational drug use is already in Q7708739 but when I go there, there is is no fi:wikipedia relations and when I try to add the fi:wikipedia article Päihde an error message comes up saying Päihde is already used in Q3706669.--Custoo (talk) 18:57, 25 September 2014 (UTC)

So, could the solution be to delete item Q3706669 and then add Päihde as the Finnish counterpart to item Q7708739? --Custoo (talk) 20:48, 28 September 2014 (UTC)

God (Q190)/deity (Q178885)Edit

Items involved: Q190Talk, Q178885Talk Status:     not resolved

In January 2014 the topic of Q190 was changed from "god" (an ambiguous word) to "God in monotheism". This corresponds to all the European-language articles as well as both of the Sinosphere WP articles. However, the Japanese article is about both monotheism and polytheism. I requested that they split the article and was met with a flat rejection due to the two concepts being ambiguous in Japanese culture. Furthermore, there is already a Japanese article corresponding to deity (Q178885), but as far as I can tell it is actually about the word "divinity". Shii (talk) 18:22, 30 September 2014 (UTC)

Q672859 and Q368646 refer to the same subject in enwiki, cawiki, glwiki, itwiki, simplewiki, ptwiki and maybe some other wikis.
