Requests for deletions
Items which do not meet Wikidata's notability policy can be deleted. Please nominate items for deletions on this page under the "Requests" section below. If it is obvious vandalism, just add the page here (gadget available), or ping an administrator to delete it. Contact can also be made with an administrator in #wikidata connect.

Before deleting items, check to ensure that they are not in use. This can be easily done with the "links" link below the header of each request.

Do not try to pre-emptively delete an item because its page is up for deletion on a Wikimedia project. The link will be removed by bots and reported here in the future if a deletion takes place.

Please use {{Q}} the first time you mention an item. Unless you use the gadget, please also ping the item's creator in your request (or ping the bot operator, when appropriate) if 1) the user is still active on Wikidata and 2) the user has contributed the majority of information in that item.

Please use Wikidata:Properties for deletion if you want to nominate a property for deletion.

This is not the place to request undeletion. Please use Wikidata:Administrators' noticeboard instead. If help is needed with the merging of items, see the instructions at Help:Merge.

Q27882203Edit

lead (Q27882203): (delete | history | links | entity usage | logs)

Nonsense duplicate of lead (Q708). Do not merge. Leyo 14:44, 9 April 2018 (UTC)

  On hold This item is linked from 10+ others. --DeltaBot (talk) 14:50, 9 April 2018 (UTC)
The links may be fixed to lead (Q708). --Leyo 15:05, 9 April 2018 (UTC)

@Egon Willighagen, Sebotic: Just to let you know as you contributed to this item. --Leyo 12:40, 10 April 2018 (UTC)

I agree, it should likely not be merged, but isn't lead (Q27882203) simply not the substance lead, rather than the element lead, which is lead (Q708)? Please hold of deleting lead (Q27882203) until we confirmed it is not a sustance consisting of lead. Looking at all the identifiers, it might just be that... but I need 15-20 minutes to inspect the situation properly... (I hope to find this time today...) --Egon Willighagen (talk) 11:36, 11 April 2018 (UTC)
Lead is just a chemical element, not a substance. I checked several other chemical elements and none has an item as a substance. --Leyo 20:46, 15 April 2018 (UTC)
OK, sorry for the delay. But I now had time to look into it. Following some of the identifiers, it suggests this item can be the substance, aka "bulk lead". Wikipedia has both of them (element and the bulk) described on the same page. I suggest to keep lead (Q27882203) as the bulk compound lead. --Egon Willighagen (talk) 13:44, 19 April 2018 (UTC)
Was is a bulk component supposed to be chemically? Are you referring to the lead(II) or lead(IV) ions? --Leyo 08:13, 20 April 2018 (UTC)
The problem here is broader than this particular element. On various WikiProject Chemistry pages we tried to establish a model for chemical elements and there were proposals that we should have e.g. two (or more in some cases) different elements for every chemical element: one for 'simple substance' (portion of matter composed of only particular chemical element atoms/homonuclear molecules) and the other about 'chemical element' (all atoms with the same number of protons in the atomic nucleus) or 'chemical element atom'. We haven't reached any consensus in this matter. Wostr (talk) 18:53, 20 April 2018 (UTC)
To me such a distinction does not seem to be useful or needed. --Leyo 09:51, 23 April 2018 (UTC)
I'll just link to Wikidata talk:WikiProject Chemistry/Proposal:Models in case you or someone else would like to take part in discussions about problems related to this request. Wostr (talk) 10:06, 27 April 2018 (UTC)
@Leyo: We need 2 items to distinguish the concepts of chemical element from chemical compound/simple substance. A chemical element has no boiling point, only one chemical compound/simple substance can have some physical properties. A chemical element is the set of atoms, without any interaction between them. A lead atom in a lead piece and a lead atom in the car battery as PbO2 have similar properties as chemical element but not as chemical substance/simple substance. The 2 items are necessary to avoid properties mixing and wrong inferences. Snipre (talk) 08:34, 30 April 2018 (UTC)
What the heck? Chemical elements surely have a boiling point (see e.g. en:List of elements by boiling point). --Leyo 08:42, 30 April 2018 (UTC)
@Leyo: Wrong, dichlorine has a boiling point, not chlorine. You mix 2 concepts, chemical substance and chemical element. And if you have some doubts, just try to provide the electrical conductivity of carbon as element: what is the correct allotrope to choose define chemical element's properties ? Snipre (talk) 08:44, 2 May 2018 (UTC)
Well, you found two exceptions. There is no similar thing for lead. --Leyo 09:25, 2 May 2018 (UTC)
Let's give the question back: what is the electrical conductivity of carbon as a chemical compound? It depends on the modification.
Sorry, but obviously chemical elements have physical properties. Item lead (Q708) for the element lead already includes all properties of the bulk material, like, density, melting point, boiling point,... so there is no need to have another item lead (Q27882203) for the bulk material. Does Wikipedia distinguish between lead as an element and lead as bulk material? No, properties of the bulk material are within the article for the element. As Leyo said there is no need to distinguish between chemical element and chemical compound and have 2 Wikidata items. regards --Bert (talk) 13:42, 5 May 2018 (UTC)
@Bert.Kilanowski, Leyo: Wrong, physical or chemical properties of the bulk can't be applied to other forms of the chemical element involved in molecules with other chemical elements.
Just an example: we create link between chemical element and the molecule using has parts of the class (P2670). Look at ethanol (Q153):
ethanol (Q153) has parts of the class (P2670) carbon (Q623)
ethanol (Q153) has parts of the class (P2670) hydrogen (Q556)
ethanol (Q153) has parts of the class (P2670) oxygen (Q629)
But the density of diamond has nothing to do with the one of the carbone involved in the ethanol molecule.
And by the way which physical properties do you want to add for carbon or sulfur as these chemicals have several allotrops.
According to IUPAC and this is the definition used for chemical element, a chemical element is a specie of atoms. And apart noble gas, all other chemical elements are creating some kind of structures which are the reason of their physical properties. Boiling point or electrical conductivity are not properties of isolated atoms but only of bulk. So we need to separate bulk properties from properties of set of atoms due to the fact we create links between items according to some definitions. I don't care of Wikipedia because WD is a different project with other goals: one of these main goals is creating connections between items by respecting rules and logic, this is called ontology. Snipre (talk) 20:44, 1 June 2018 (UTC)
Your argument is only valid for the few elements that have allotropes, but not for all others. --Leyo 09:08, 5 June 2018 (UTC)
@Leyo: And what's about the other arguments, the most critical as they are the base of links between items ? What is your concerns to consider in a different manner all atoms included the ones involved in compounds with others chemical elements and the ones which are forming a bloc of matter composed only of one chemical element ? The physical/chemical properties, like boiling point or electrical conductivity, of pure chemical element can be applied only to the second group, not to the former because atoms of different chemical elements linked inside one compound don't share those properties. Just explain me how you can consider that the chlorine in one molecule of sodium chloride can share in any way the properties of dichlorine ? So if we apply your system we should delete all links like the ones I described above for ethanol. Creating links creating association or inheritance. Snipre (talk) 14:57, 8 June 2018 (UTC)
  • This probably isn't the place to have this discussion, but it is not true that there are only a "few elements that have allotropes". Every element has at least 3 distinct "pure substance" forms (solid, liquid, gas); additionally under different temperature and pressure conditions most solid elemental substances transform into different molecular arrangements and crystal structures (even hydrogen metallizes at high pressures). There are only a limited number of elements that have multiple stable forms at room temperature and pressure (STP) but that doesn't mean the other forms don't exist! Now, it's not clear to me that Wikidata needs an item for every phase and molecular arrangement or crystal structure of every element, the question is here whether we should have separate items for the element and the main STP phase (if there is just one). It might be ok to add properties like density (P2054) and melting point (P2101) on the element and just require qualifiers if there's ambiguity. On the other hand, having exceptions where those properties don't make sense on the element means we have an inconsistent ontology, which makes use of SPARQL etc. more difficult. That said, the present state of lead (Q708) and lead (Q27882203) is a mess, and should be cleaned up somehow! ArthurPSmith (talk) 15:13, 8 June 2018 (UTC)
  • Definitions get more specific with time, there might be a reason to keep both lead. Wikidata improves with more specific definitions.
  • Examples: rocksalt (rock), sodium chloride and halite (mineral); kaolin (rock) and kaolinite (mineral); aluminium (element), aluminium (native, mineral) and steinhardtite; arsenic (element), arsenic (native, mineral) and arsenolamprite; non mineral > valid mineral > polytypes
  • --Chris.urs-o (talk) 16:55, 8 June 2018 (UTC)
  • @Leyo: Can we close the discussion now ? Snipre (talk) 23:19, 13 June 2018 (UTC)
Yes, right after deletion. --Leyo 21:47, 14 June 2018 (UTC)

Q32858142Edit

no label (Q32858142): (delete | history | links | entity usage | logs)

An anon user removed the sitelink commons:Commons:Bienvenido, which is a translation page of Wikimedia:About (Q4387616) if I get it right. This item would thus not be notable. Does it have any special need? @NikkiMisterSynergy (talk) 20:32, 19 April 2018 (UTC)

  On hold This item is linked from 1 other. --DeltaBot (talk) 20:40, 19 April 2018 (UTC)
It have another one no label (Q32858152). i don't really know if those item are needed or no. - yona b (talk) 10:33, 24 April 2018 (UTC)
we have many similar items, see e.g. [1] --Pasleim (talk) 13:10, 25 April 2018 (UTC)
It seems I missed this. I don't think it should be deleted because it has a valid sitelink. The sitelink should really be on Wikimedia:About (Q4387616) but since that's not currently possible, we model cases like this using instance of (P31) Wikimedia permanent duplicate item 1 (Q21286738) and permanent duplicated item (P2959), which links the items together and says that "Commons:Benvenido" is conceptually the same thing as "Commons:Welcome". Although Commons currently doesn't do it, it also makes it possible to fetch interwiki links from Wikidata (the Ladino Wikipedia does that). If it ever becomes possible to link multiple sitelinks, a bot can merge the items. - Nikki (talk) 18:45, 15 October 2018 (UTC)
  • I'm not sure if P2959 is suitable when they are tooo many. I'd favor the approach at Special:WhatLinksHere/Q21450877. They need to have some statements, otherwise they end up in all kinds of places. I think plenty were taxa with links to wikispecies. --- Jura 18:53, 15 October 2018 (UTC)

@Kjetil r: You should use Wikidata Sandbox (Q4115189), sandbox (Q13406268) or test.wikidata.org for this purpose or take advantage of arbitrary access and create a real-world example. --Pasleim (talk) 13:02, 25 April 2018 (UTC)
I suppose Wikidata Sandbox (Q4115189) and/or sandbox (Q13406268) could be used in some cases, but we also have a legitimate need for having a semi-stable dummy item that could be used for documentation purposes. I don't know test.wikidata.org very well, but is it really suitable for such use cases? For example, the birth date and death date of [2] do not appear in the infobox at [3].

        Obviously, it's sub-optimal when films lack their original title. Isn't this the film where an excerpt is available on U-tube? Maybe @Bipin Sapkota: can help us.

        • In case you missed it. The questions I think remained open: "Do you have anything to support it? " and "How is Amazon's IMDB relevant to your explanation?". Maybe you can answer the additional question to the IP too. Btw, I think you confused film and item about a film.

Perhaps any of @Biplab Anand, BRPever, Nabin K. Sapkota, Nirmal Dulal, Bijay chaurasia, Pitambar Bhattarai: can help us resolve this case or find someone else who can resolve this case once and for all. We definitely need better references regarding this film's existence and its characteristics than just film database entries and questionable snippets from YouTube. To those I have pinged, the sorts of references I am looking for are similar to those I added to Chhori Buhari (Q47465325), excluding those references to a Wikipedia list page (which I will remove soon). Also to those I have pinged, this is a standing request to you and other Wikimedians from Nepal that if any other Wikidata-related event in Nepal is to occur of a similar scale to what happened on January 20th/21st, you must inform me or Jura about it so we can potentially monitor what is going on as it happens and so we can prevent a further deluge of deletion requests due to the incompleteness of items. Mahir256 (talk) 15:23, 13 July 2018 (UTC)
Maybe a note on WikiProject Movies would be helpful. I don't think I want to have to monitor every editathon. After some re-factoring, I think the one in January did give some interesting entries. Obviously, it's more difficult if there aren't plenty of sources. I'd rather fix a few entries than have people wait till they think they get it perfect.

I created these while cleaning up song-items with multiple performer (P175)-statements indicating performers of different versions.

  •   Weak oppose   Keep. This person has a FISA rower ID (P2091), which is an authoritative database, not a self-published source. So it marginally meets the "notable" inclusion criterion. This item also makes Narragansett Boat Club (Q55415215) and 2012 World Rowing Junior Championships – Junior men's double scull (Q47604947) more useful and provides authority control information about some of this rower's self-published usernames, but I would argue that these do not confer additional notability.

Just for his junior rowing we typically wouldn’t create an item about him at this point, although he is listed in the World Rowing database (Q21008628). His FISA rower ID (P2091) is part of a database containing ~50k profiles, of which around 15k are considered relevant for Wikidata at this point (~10k already existing; criterion is: open age international rowing, following notability criteria in Wikipedias). It is also worth to mention here that the item has apparently been repurposed by the subject himself, see this diff. —MisterSynergy (talk) 21:37, 25 July 2018 (UTC)

More contested items about WikimediansEdit

It has been requested that more items about Wikimedians deleted by Maarten the week of July 15th be more thoroughly assessed for notability. The subjects of the seven below items did not have a hand (or had a minor hand) in the addition of content to their items. There are six other items that do not fit this aforementioned criteria which I have opted to exclude from the below list; another admin may augment this list with those if they consider a subject's own positive assessment of his or her own notability, by virtue of creating and expanding upon an item, enough to warrant such contestation.

Even more contested items about WikimediansEdit

There have been constant protests on the Administrators' noticeboard for the review of every topic item deletion by Maarten from the week of July 14th. These six items, plus a seventh added by yours truly, were all entirely created and expanded (or at least the majority of edits to these items were contributed) by their subjects.

I had previously opted to leave the first six items here deleted, because those items above which I did undelete (and those undeleted items on this subject which I kept when renominated by Pasleim) were not majority or wholly edited by their subjects. I had interpreted this characteristic to mean that someone else had considered them notable enough for Wikidata (at the bare minimum under criterion 2 of WD:N) and thus that their conception of this notability is worthy of being challenged in a forum such as this, as opposed to cases of clear self-promo items created and expanded by their subjects (that conceivably could also be kept under this same criterion) which when nominated are generally promptly deleted by an admin. The question here that should be answered once and for all is whether we should consider a Wikimedian's own assessment of their own notability, such that they decide to create and expand their own items, enough to satisfy WD:N, bearing in mind that we have deleted items by clear self-promoters who have assessed themselves to be notable enough to warrant creation and expansion of their own items.

Duplicate not in use of Let's Spend the Night Together (Q1389086) -- L'Ospite Inatteso - I love to love you 13:57, 11 August 2018 (UTC)

@Jc86035: thoughts? Mahir256 (talk) 18:42, 11 August 2018 (UTC)
@Mahir256, L'Ospite Inatteso:   Keep. I would unsplit the itwiki article and move the sitelink to Let's Spend the Night Together/Ruby Tuesday (Q16572180), since the single is not the same thing as the songs (e.g. per the enwiki article, some chart positions would be on the single's item and not the song's; see also Wikidata:Properties for deletion#P1432). I think regardless the itwiki articles should be sorted out first because there's also w:it:Ruby Tuesday and it's not entirely clear whether w:it:Let's Spend the Night Together/Ruby Tuesday is about the song or the double A-side.
If the single's item is kept I'd create w:it:Let's Spend the Night Together (Rolling Stones) as a blank page, add it to Let's Spend the Night Together (Q1389086), and turn the new itwiki page into a redirect. The items should be modeled like Eastside (Q55975144)/Eastside (Q55977453), but structured as a double A-side with the relevant information for the physical release and so on.
This is problematic for the sidebar sitelinks but the entities are not the same thing (as with Bonnie and Clyde (Q219937)) so either we have to live with that or the recently-moved itwiki article can be moved again and sorted out. Jc86035 (talk) 18:56, 11 August 2018 (UTC)

Furthermore, the query can't find Q36861066, Q37323459, Q37502370, Q37506527, Q42717190, possibly due incorrect query design or a misunderstanding of the Irish prefix in some surnames.

Nope, should be kept separated, one is about a name and the other one is a disambiguation page. Two different things, so two items needed. --Harmonia Amanda (talk) 18:33, 4 September 2018 (UTC)
Actually I do not understand, what means LUA (Q15184295? How it is relevant here?) and why Harmonia reverted my edits. They are both about the same family name (I checked orthography). Taivo (talk) 07:48, 5 September 2018 (UTC)
I think the page in German is a disambiguation page. This is not true for w:Erdinger. Accordingly, the items at Wikidata have different statements. --- Jura 07:59, 5 September 2018 (UTC)
First sentence "Edinger ist der Familienname folgender Personen" means "Edinger is family name of these persons". That means: German article is about family name. All three other articles (French, Polish, Portuguese) are also about family name. Taivo (talk) 17:31, 5 September 2018 (UTC)
I think you would need to remove the notice at the bottom of the page. Otherwise, German Wikipedia sees it as a disambiguation page. --- Jura 17:58, 5 September 2018 (UTC)

Jura, you wanna have a ref that the given name of this person is Gustaf Wilhelm?? Just look to its wikipedia articles, not just Gustaf and not just Wilhelm.

But yes, it is the plan to create all those combinations, or as complete as possible. --JuTa (talk) 22:45, 11 September 2018 (UTC)
We probably understand the unquoted part differently. Maybe it's that the item they mention doesn't have an English label. BTW, there is no such plan.

──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── In this case, its absolutely two names, Gustaf and Wilhelm, contrary to, especially in the past, when some names were a mix of two original names, like Tor and Björn, which sometimes became Torbjörn.

@Jd22292: What do you mean, "No entry exists in the project." Criteria 2 in Wikidata:Notability requires the (in this case) person to be capable of being "can be described using serious and publicly available references". This person has no less than eight authority control references. Why would you want to delete such an item? Are all of your other deletion requests as poor as this one? . Please explain and, in particular, reassure us that you have a grasp of notability in wikidata, since I see you are a serial deletionist. --Tagishsimon (talk) 21:39, 8 October 2018 (UTC)
Having external identifiers does not automatically make an item notable. For example, we have a property for Facebook IDs, but that does not mean that everyone on Facebook is allowed an item here. There's no agreement on which identifiers are sufficient for notability and which aren't, but generally identifiers that people can sign up for themselves (which includes all the identifiers on this item) are usually considered less relevant for notability purposes, because those can easily be abused for self-promotion/advertising. - Nikki (talk) 09:45, 9 October 2018 (UTC)

@Wikizummo: The two classes being proposed here for deletion don't appear in the source given. In general, it would help a lot if you could integrate the items you've created into Wikidata better, for example, by using subclass of (P279) to link items together. Right now there are lots of items which aren't being used in Wikidata for anything, so it's not obvious why they should be kept, which will lead to people proposing them for deletion. - Nikki (talk) 15:34, 12 October 2018 (UTC)
@Nikki: My fault: actually this entity and the following (Q55719474) are not in the source given, since they were added by the cataloguer who is working at the "Sound Archives and Music Collections" project. In this project we developed a cataloguing system based on Collective Access, but since we wanted to make our data accessible and reusable by the online community, we decided to use Wikidata for the management of controlled vocabularies. So we created all Hornbostel-Sachs WD entities (MIMO and Guizzi's version), and developed a plugin (https://github.com/collectiveaccess/providence/commit/eb63850303169fa2f03703db3c5dd62b1e8541e3) that we use to query the Wikidata Sparql Endpoint from the Collective Access back end. But sometimes the cataloguer needs to extend the classification, as for Q56034651 and Q55719474. So I ask you how can I correctly reference them, since we still don't have produced any paper about it (I suppose we'll do it soon, at the end of the project). Maybe I can create an entity for the University project (https://www.slideshare.net/synapta/sound-archives-and-musical-instrument-collections) and use it for referencing?

For the integration in Wikidata: I'll link items with subclass of (P279), but it's a bit complicagted and will take a while. --GiorgioBevilacqua (talk) 13:27, 13 October 2018 (UTC)

Notability issues with all three items. They all relate to E.M.S (Q56322094) and some other items (Q56458766, Q56492509, Q56475233, Q56473797, …) which have questionable notability as well. MisterSynergy (talk) 09:12, 14 October 2018 (UTC)

  On hold This item is linked from 3 others, sister mother (which I guess both could be deleted by Notability) and from an item describing a Nigerian rapper. I will await other opinions. Dan Koehl (talk) 09:27, 14 October 2018 (UTC)
