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.

@Kjetil r: You should use Wikidata Sandbocs (Q4115189), Second Wikidata sandbox (Q13406268) or 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 Sandbocs (Q4115189) and/or Second Wikidata 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 very well, but is it really suitable for such use cases? For example, the birth date and death date of [1] do not appear in the infobox at [2].

~410 Azerbaijani filmsEdit

(Those items are listed at User:Pasleim/Items for deletion/Page deleted/Archive/2017-2.)
There are ~410 items about Azerbaijani films whose only sitelinks were deleted by azwiki admin User:Vusal1981 in October/November 2017. There are no identifiers, links, or references on the items, and they have barely been touched in the past 14 months by editors (as it happens to most abandoned items). As I have no idea where I can lookup information about them, I’d like to ask the community whether anyone can rescue these items so that they meet the notability requirements, or whether they shall be deleted as non-notable items. —MisterSynergy (talk) 08:28, 8 January 2019 (UTC)

  • We used to have more of them. I don't think they were based on an online resource. I vaguely recall discussing them with a contributor to that wiki. I don't recall who that was though. Obviously, it would be good to keep them, but that would need a reference to confirm them. --- Jura 08:39, 8 January 2019 (UTC)

  Notified participants of WikiProject Taxonomy: can you provide some expertise, please …? Thanks, MisterSynergy (talk) 12:00, 27 January 2019 (UTC)

These are two different names, that is, two different formal entities. If there was more information a "taxon synonym" / "is a synonym of ..." statement could be added, but this information is not present. We really do need a "this name is homotypic with" property. - Brya (talk) 18:22, 27 January 2019 (UTC)
I am not an expert in Bryophytes, but the two taxa do have the same basionym: Nardia paroica Schiffn. Lotos 58: 320. 1910. –Tommy Kronkvist (talk) 22:29, 27 January 2019 (UTC), 22:29, 27 January 2019 (UTC).
Yes, that is what I said: they are homotypic. - Brya (talk) 12:25, 28 January 2019 (UTC)
Yes. Also – for what it's worth – ITIS lists Solenostoma paroicum (Schiffn.) Schust. as a synonym of Jungermannia fossombronioides Aust. (Q17290457), but doesn't list Jungermannia paroica at all. Then again I guess ITIS is fairly often not very well updated these days. –Tommy Kronkvist (talk), 12:41, 28 January 2019 (UTC).
Yes. And Tropicos says that Jungermannia fossombronioides is treated as a synonym of Solenostoma fossombronioides by Stotler, R. E. & B. J. Crandall-Stotler. 2017. A synopsis of the liverwort flora of North America north of Mexico. Ann. Missouri Bot. Gard. 102(4): 574–709. A synopsis of the liverwort flora of North America north of Mexico.

The reference is under the instance (P31) statement, page 14 of PDF, published by the Secretaria Municipal de Desenvolvimento Urbano, Habitação e Meio Ambiente (Sedham) of Salvador in 2007. If a government document is insufficient to support an item, please delete it. Prburley (talk)
  • @Luan: is a mixup or not? --- Jura 07:13, 29 January 2019 (UTC)
    @Jura1: Ainda mantenho minha proposição de eliminação. Em resumo, mesmo alterando a denominação para algo que está previsto em lei, ainda é somente algo previsto em lei, sem a efetivação de uma regulamentação que delimitaria de forma mais precisa o território (o que está e o que não está situado nele). Explicando mais detalhadamente, na página 14 do PDF encontra-se a inciso XIII, art. 230, da Lei n.° 7.400/2008 (PDDU) de 27 de fevereiro de 2007 (que dispõe sobre o General plan (Q837215) de Salvador (Q36947)). Lá trata da "APCP do Rio Vermelho", ou seja, da Área de Proteção Cultural e Paisagística (APCP) do Rio Vermelho. Não há nada sobre "Área de Proteção Contígua--Rio Vermelho" ou "APC--Rio Vermelho". Vale dizer que a Lei n.° 7.400/2008 foi revogada pela Lei n.º 9.069/2016 (vide art.411), encerrando uma série de contestações judiciais, mas os termos sobre a APCP do Rio Vermelho foram mantidos/copiados (vide art. 269, inciso XIII). Além disso, não existe ainda regulamentação da APCP do Rio Vermelho pelo poder legislativo municipal. A regulamentação em legislação específica é importante para identificar, dentre outras coisas, a delimitação em escalas adequadas para cada APCP e é requerida pela Lei n.º 9.069/2016 para a devida institucionalização como APCP. Por exemplo, existe regulamentação para a "APCP da Ladeira da Barra/Santo Antônio da Barra" e outras 8 APCP (vide Lei n.º 8165/2012). --Luan (talk) 23:23, 29 January 2019 (UTC)
    @Luan: & @Jura1:Uma mensagem do: Instituto do Patrimônio Artístico e Cultural da Bahia, Secretaria de Cultura do Estado da Bahia (IPAC), 11/2/2019 (hoje.) "[...] no bairro do Rio Vermelho tem uma poligonal de tombamento. Vale ressaltar que no entorno da poligonal alguns imóveis são tombados individualmente. [...] O nome é o Poligonal do Rio Vermelho."Prburley (talk)
    Should the item "Área de Proteção Contígua--Rio Vermelho" be "Poligonal do Rio Vermelho"? Thanks, Paul Prburley (talk)
    Onde isso foi dito? Nessa imagem no Facebook? Independentemente de onde foi dito, vale salientar que toda a legislação anteriormente citada e a Sedham são da esfera municipal (municipal prefecture of Salvador (Q53930901)). Já o Instituto do Património Artístico e Cultural da Bahia (Q10302963) pertence à esfera estadual (Q61641530). Logo, não tem nada a ver uma coisa com a outra, pois as esferas de governo são autônomas em suas classificações de patrimônio. Em listagem de 2017, também não há nada na esfera federal (National Historic and Artistic Heritage Institute (Q391537)) como "Conjunto Urbano" ou na coluna de dados do tombamento "paisagístico" relativo ao Rio Vermelho. Essa tal poligonal também não consta na lista do IPAC para bens em Salvador. Só uma frase postada em Facebook não prova nada, na ausência de uma lei, de uma delimitação, de um processo de tombamento. Esse item deve ser eliminado. --Luan (talk) 00:29, 14 February 2019 (UTC)
    Onde isso foi dito? Na minha correspondência com o Instituto do Património Artístico e Cultural da Bahia (Q10302963), um órgão governamental do Estado da Bahia. Leia a mensagem acima. Prburley (talk)
    @Prburley: eu li. Você disse quem, não disse a fonte da informação. Independentemente, você começou dizendo que era um tombamento municipal (apontou legislação municipal). Provei que não existia. Agora tenta dizer que há um tombamento estadual (apontou uma aparente fala do IPAC). Provei também que não existe o tombamento nessa esfera. Me adiantei e mostrei também que não há tombamento federal. Não há mais porque manter esse item. @Jura1: can you delete this item? --Luan (talk) 01:07, 15 February 2019 (UTC)
    @Jura1: As a librarian I believe government documents and communication with the relevant government entities point to establishing some entity--and working towards its proper name, not a deletion. This is well covered in Wikidata: Notability. Prburley (talk)
    @Luan: Please review the guidelines at: Presumir a boa-fé. Language like "inventado" assumes that an editor randomly "invents" things rather than editing in good faith using given sources. Thanks! Prburley (talk)
    @Prburley: você pula de uma esfera governamental para outra tentando provar sem sucesso que o item que criou tem base na realidade para além do teu solitário entendimento. As esferas são autônomas, uma não pode intervir no que for estabelecido pela outra. Logo, o IPAC não normatiza sobre Sedham ou sobre o PDDU, pois estes são municipais, e vice-versa. "Área de Proteção Contígua--Rio Vermelho" não existe, em nenhuma esfera de governo. "Área de Proteção Cultural e Paisagística (APCP) do Rio Vermelho" foi prevista em lei de Salvador, mas nunca foi criada, delimitada. Sem isso, não é possível identificar o que está dentro dela ou não; não é possível identificar qual imóvel é abrigado nessa área territorial; não é possível determinar o tamanho dessa área; não há data, características ou condições de proteção. "Poligonal do Rio Vermelho" não teve a fonte/referência que confirme sua existência, a não ser a imagem publicada no Facebook que apontei. Mas novamente, não há informações sobre essa possível área, tamanho características, imóveis incluídos, etc. O fato de ser bibliotecário não parece te ajudar no processo de busca por fontes que confirmem a existência detalhada do item que quer tanto manter. A boa-fé não permanece diante de uma situação como essa, lembrando que isso começou na página de discussão do item na qual você me ignorou e apontou fontes sem relação com o item, ao que se soma as mensagens alternantes aqui entre as esferas de governo no Brasil, mostrando desconhecimento e insistência infundada. Esse item poderia muito bem figurar em Wikipedia:Silly Things (Q4995845) ou Wikipedia:List of hoaxes on Wikipedia (Q14629005). --Luan (talk) 16:06, 15 February 2019 (UTC)
    A existência de tal entidade ainda não foi comprovada. Por isso, além de remover informações falsas, removi também as alegações não verificáveis de localização e instância. --Luan (talk) 14:36, 13 June 2019 (UTC)


Cebus sp. (Q40985505): (delete | history | links | entity usage | logs)

Ambiguous, not a valid taxon, and unlinked. Tommy Kronkvist (talk) 08:23, 8 February 2019 (UTC)

@Tommy Kronkvist: it has a valid identifier, thus I tend to keep it. If some of the statements are not correct, please use deprecated rank to remove this item from query results. Is that possible? --MisterSynergy (talk) 06:44, 18 April 2019 (UTC)
@MisterSynergy: Perhaps, but I don't think so. As far as I understand it, the NCBI Taxonomy identifier regards a species of virus named Cebine betaherpesvirus 1 (Q24808723). It has been found in two host species: humans, and in an unspecified specimen belonging to the Gracile capuchin monkey genus Cabron (Q8447051). The Virus-Host DB page can be found here: I'm only guessing here, but it seems the scientists studying this particular strain of virus didn't bother to identify which of the fifteen or so species of the Cebus genus that particular monkey belonged to. The reason for this is of course that they were not really studying the monkey at all, but the virus using it as host.
Normally within the field of taxonomy the term "species" or the abbreviation "sp." is only used when failing to pinpoint a particular species within a recognized genus. More or less, "sp." is only a placeholder for a taxon name until the specimen has been properly identified as being a member of a valid species, or described as a new species. In this case however, no one ever tried to do this. In fact, instead of (sort of...) specifying the object as "Cebus sp." they might just as well simply have called it "monkey". In this particular case "Cebus sp." doesn't really relate to any specific taxon at all – hence, it can never be a "deprecated" taxon either.
Lastly, perhaps @Pigsonthewing have an opinion about all this? He's familiar with most things about taxonomy, and on top of that also knows more about the Wikidata tech details than me. Best regards, Tommy Kronkvist (talk), 10:12, 18 April 2019 (UTC).
Thanks for asking. I have no definitve answer. On the one hand, MisterSynergy is correct in regard the identifier making it notable. On the other, if it is valid, why not the same for every other (non-monotypic) genus? Perhaps we should keep it, but with a different value for P31? Andy Mabbett (Pigsonthewing); Talk to Andy; Andy's edits 15:02, 18 April 2019 (UTC)
Yes, "keep it, but with a different value for P31" is what I had in mind; I am just not qualified to select another value item :-)
The item was created by User:Magnus Manske, apparently as an import from Taxonomy database of the U.S. National Center for Biotechnology Information (Q13711410). If we kept the item, we would avoid that someone would re-create a new item for that database entry in the future. —MisterSynergy (talk) 07:33, 19 April 2019 (UTC)

The content of Berlin Jungfernheide station (Q22284875) should definitely not get removed until the deletion request is decided. But we have to decide if a station with a part for the S-Bahn (Q95723) and a part for the regular railway should have two separate items or not. --GPSLeo (talk) 08:09, 19 April 2019 (UTC)
I would propose to stay only with item Berlin Jungfernheide station (Q567079) and to remove item Berlin Jungfernheide station (Q22284875) as the Berlin S-Bahn (Q99654) of Berlin has only combined items with S-Bahn and Train. There are only separate item for Berlin U-Bahn (Q68646), see also item Berlin Alexanderplatz station (Q698497), Berlin-Friedrichstraße railway station (Q702402) or Berlin Hauptbahnhof (Q1097). --GodeNehler (talk) 08:51, 19 April 2019 (UTC)
I don't know if this is the case here, but S-Bahn stations are quite often treated as separate stations from the main line stations, they share the name with, if they don't share any track infrastructure (which is the case here). So, I guess, we should keep separate items for all three stations (main line (Q3238851), S-Bahn (Q95723) and rapid transit (Q5503)). --MB-one (talk) 09:41, 19 April 2019 (UTC)
  • The items seems to be confused at the moment. In reality the station has 2 S-Bahn tracks, 2 U-Bahn tracks, 2 regular train tracks and at least 2 metro bus stops(I'm not sure from memory whether it's 2 or 4 metro stops). The S-Bahn part and the train part is owned DB Netz (Q896765) but neither buses nor U-Bahn is. ChristianKl❫ 13:25, 7 June 2019 (UTC)

A non-notable slang/neologism for something along the lines of 'the privileged', used in recent Japanese politics. No site links. I might (re-)classify it into a lexicographical item if I had to, but I doubt if it could be attestable by Wiktionary's standard anytime soon.

Do you want to make it a lexeme or entitya lexeme entity or non-lexeme entity? If non-lexeme, you would need to have at least one sitelink. (I don't think other conditions in WD:N will meet either.) If lexeme, it has to be attested and idiomatic. whym (talk) 11:52, 24 April 2019 (UTC)

Thank you for the correction. (It's now applied.) How do you know it is idiomatic? The phrase is sort of like wikt:second-class citizen, but without the programming-language sense (and not 'inferior', obviously). If it is an idiom, I would expect it has a non-idiomatic reading in addition to an idiomatic reading. To me, 上級国民 seems to have only one sense - the 'privileged' / 'superior" sense, which seems straightforward and almost literal. whym (talk) 14:30, 16 June 2019 (UTC)

@VIGNERON: Not sure if this works like a discussion but the English article for Q18325890 is about Ruben as well as Reuben, and mentions variants in other languages. The same is true for Q18114894 where the Italian article, for example, mentions among others the English variant Reuben. The articles describe the same topic using different names for the article. WikiHannibal (talk) 22:03, 5 May 2019 (UTC)
@WikiHannibal: yes, we can discuss and yes the situation is a bit strange but contrary to Wikipedias, Wikidata can't mix two concepts even if they are very close, otherwise it would be very hard to correctly store the data. See Wikidata:WikiProject Names#Basic principles: « each string should have a distinct item: the most important property is therefore native label (P1705). Wassyl is not Василь is not Васіль is not Vasyl ». Cheers, VIGNERON (talk) 06:21, 6 May 2019 (UTC)
@VIGNERON: I think I understand the underlying idea, but are we talking about concepts then (as you say above), or "spellings" of the "same" concept in different languages? Perhaps the issue lies elsewhere. My goal, from the point of wikipedia, is to link the contents of the article in "all" languages. How can I do that? If Reuben is not Ruben, then the English article RUBEN should link to Ruben (Q18114894) (and, for example, all Rubens from English Reuben moved there - that would me up to wikipedia editors to decide). But it seems I cannot link the English article RUBEN to Ruben (Q18114894). Thanks for your help. WikiHannibal (talk) 07:24, 6 May 2019 (UTC)

eater (Q20984678): (delete | history | links | entity usage | logs)

@Thierry Caro, Sjoerddebruin: I don't think that "eater" is really an occupation, or that pointing to this item with subclass of (P279) or occupation (P106) is the proper way to model that something eats something else. I don't think this item serves any real purpose. Yair rand (talk) 03:28, 7 May 2019 (UTC)

  Comment @Yair rand: if this is not the proper way, how would you suggest to do it? In particular, I'm thinking about competitive eaters like Molly Schuyler (Q6896676) who do have for principal - and sometimes professional - occupation to be an eater. Until then I would lean towards   Keep. Cheers, VIGNERON (talk) 12:20, 7 May 2019 (UTC)
@VIGNERON: One's occupation can be participating in eating competitions, but one's occupation can't be "being an entity that eats". (I see that User:Thierry Caro has created competitive eater (Q63554580) for the actual occupation, which is more accurate.) man-eater (Q1365331) and Cookie Monster (Q1754267) are not modeled in a way that makes sense, though. We have main food source (P1034), though I'm not sure that would work here. --Yair rand (talk) 18:37, 7 May 2019 (UTC)

  • Trade I believe I can. On 24 Feb, the property Q54849732 was deleted by Ymblanter for failing to meet the notability policy and someone recreated it on 21 April. On 10 May,, engaged in editing contrary to Wikidata:Living people and it was quickly reverted. On 11 May, engaged in reverting back to the page the vandalism and on 12 May the same thing happened under The 4 editors included the 3 IP's that reverted the vandalism and the individual edit warring with them. From what I can tell the individual who was reverting back to the unvandalized page left multiple notices of policy and warnings of vandal on those talk pages. Also, the account RyanForTrump was created to engage once the page was protected and that account is also engaged in photos on WikiCommons of the same individual. The first user who was reverting based on policy did so under the understanding that characterizations and labels shouldn't be on this property unless they can be verified by a reputable news outlet. Right now they have a website with a temporary domain and also multiple labels without references. A note was left on the admin board to deal with this problem and the admin protected the page and blocked all users that were involved in the edit war. Now the problem is there are many characterizations and labels on the page that are not based in fact and also do not have news sources to support them. Andy Mabbett said on the admin board "Someone needs to remove the "parody" Twitter account; the uncited far-right (Q204481) ideology; and the falsely-cited charge (P1595) values, from this item, ASAP." In reference to the stuff on the page that is not sourced or is using bad sourcing. Also, left a note on Jasper Deng 's talk page asking for clarity. Datamaster1 (talk) 03:19, 13 May 2019 (UTC)

@יונה בנדלאק: Hi there! It is the practise of Wikidata:WikiProject_Names that each spelling variant gets its own item, even if all that separates them is just an accent. Since each name should be linked to a corresponding disambiguation page, it's cleaner if those follow the same "rule". Rather than merging, the different spellings are instead linked through Property:P460. This has the added bonus of allowing more than one disambiguation page per language, of which there are quite a few. Anyways, that was the rationale, if you guys feel strongly about it I won't protest, but it would be helpful if a differing practise is anchored in some sort of written guidelines and cleared with Wikidata:WikiProject_Names.

I don't understand how a joint conference between two head of states can be not notable for Wikidata. depicts (P180) is used here to represent all the topics covered by the conference, I think it is better to use an existing property than to create a new one. Léna (talk) 08:23, 10 June 2019 (UTC)
  • The item was entirely unreferenced. depicts (P180) is for visual depiction. Click on the ! mark item next to your additions to learn more about it. Do never use a random property if you can't find an appropriate one. This is not better.--- Jura 08:29, 10 June 2019 (UTC)
    It's corrected. This was not a choice made randomly, and depicts (P180) is not only for visual depiction, it can be used with work (Q386724), which includes textual productions such as songs and books, and theater works. A speech is no different than that. Léna (talk) 08:51, 10 June 2019 (UTC)
    • Do you have a sample for this assumed use? How do you explain your constraint violations? AFAIK a general property for anything a text "mentions" is something that was rejected. If there is a main subject of the press conference, you can use main subject (P921) for that. Maybe France–Nigeria relations (Q64149119). Anyways, I added the reference you provided in the meantime to the appropriate statements. The only thing that remains is that the depicts (P180) need to be cleaned out. --- Jura 08:59, 10 June 2019 (UTC)
      Sure: 100 first depicts for books and depicts for play. The issue is that the constraint is too tight Léna (talk) 09:33, 10 June 2019 (UTC)
      • Just means that there are a few other ones using it incorrectly (relatively minor for a property with >100,000 uses). If 10% of incorrect uses are on Q56684191, maybe that tells you something. --- Jura 09:42, 10 June 2019 (UTC)
  • I'm not sure about the use in Q56684191 either, but depicts (P180) was proposed for any work (also books), see (it's proposal). As it makes sense for pictures to distinguish between the main topic and the things depicted it makes sense for literary works to distinguish between the main subject (what is the book about?) and other elements significant to the narrative (events, narrative motifs, etc.). The use of depicts (P180) in these cases may not be optimal (maybe there is the need of own properties for narrative motifs and events depicted in a story (without being its main topic)) but it is not incorrect per se, at least following the proposal. - Valentina.Anitnelav (talk) 11:35, 10 June 2019 (UTC)
    • There was a subsequent discussion on the properties talk page. Scope is visual works, not press statements by Sarah Huckleby, etc. --- Jura 10:12, 11 June 2019 (UTC)
  • There is no discussion on the property talk page in which it was decided that this property does only apply to visual works. Apart from that I agree that press statements (as probably all non-fictional written works) should rather use main subject (P921) than depicts (P180). -Valentina.Anitnelav (talk) 10:50, 11 June 2019 (UTC)
  • There is no decision to limit depicts (P180) to visual works in the discussions linked above and in my opinion depicts (P180) should not be used to list everything mentioned in a literary work. But I don't think that this question matters to the question if the item should get deleted. Some of the use cases with depicts (P180) on literary works should be probably delegated to new properties anyway. - Valentina.Anitnelav (talk) 14:55, 11 June 2019 (UTC)
    • Obviously, any word on a press release is a conceptual entity, but I don't think we should create an them for each of them in Wikidata, nor for press releases in general or press conferences. --- Jura 16:25, 11 June 2019 (UTC)
  • Why ? Léna (talk) 14:31, 14 June 2019 (UTC)

  Keep, @Cohaf: this item is clearly and obviously not empty. Cheers, VIGNERON (talk) 16:09, 11 June 2019 (UTC)
@VIGNERON:. My error. Read empty item wrongly. However, does it meet notablity without any sitelinks? I'm not sure #2 in WD:N is met.Regards, --Cohaf (talk) 08:37, 12 June 2019 (UTC)
@Cohaf:, no problem. Well all album by this singer have an item and several of them even have a en.wp article (see en:Category:Joey Yung albums), so I would say it's notable enough. Plus, it clearly met #3 of WD:N (if you want to have the full list of albums for instance). Cheers, VIGNERON (talk) 08:48, 12 June 2019 (UTC)
As of the articles I'm not that sure. I'm here as zhwiki deleted that only article created for this item twice. I'm unsure of #2. For #3 I'll follow community consensus, I'm unsure here. @VIGNERON:.--Cohaf (talk) 10:14, 12 June 2019 (UTC)
@Cohaf: do you know why this article was deleted on zh.wp (I can't find it on zh:维基百科:頁面存廢討論/記錄/2018/12/27) but not the other albums by the same singer? Is it really because of notability or is there other reasons? Cheers, VIGNERON (talk) 10:27, 12 June 2019 (UTC)
@VIGNERON:Lacks notablity. Its lost in the page due to the some edit conflict. --Cohaf (talk) 10:32, 12 June 2019 (UTC)
Yes, found it zh:Special:Diff/52629670 (not sure why @Jimmy Xu: removed the deletion, it should be fixed), and actually it seems more like a lack of source than a lack of notability (obv, the second is related to the first but it's not the same thing, espacially as Wikipedia notabilities is not the same as Wikidata notability). Cheers, VIGNERON (talk) 10:59, 12 June 2019 (UTC)
@VIGNERON. The article was deleted due to it cannot meet notablity standards of the Chinese Wikipedia. That's my homewiki anyway. This should be the correct interpretation. Best Regards,--Cohaf (talk) 14:21, 12 June 2019 (UTC)

Pinging the creator: Comte0. --VIGNERON (talk) 20:10, 16 June 2019 (UTC)

I didn't create Q64624733 on purpose, I merely linked en:Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Jérémy Amelin to fr:Discussion:Jérémy Amelin/Suppression using the Edit links on the left column of the english wikipedia. Both AfD are somewhat suspicious, the french one linking to the 2014 version but having been opened last friday, so I consider important to be able to easily switch between the french and english version. Regards, Comte0 (talk) 20:29, 16 June 2019 (UTC)
Français :
@Comte0: ah ok, je vois. Dans ce cas, j'imagine que le mieux serait sans doute d'utiliser l'ancien système de lien interwiki à la main. Pour l'étrangeté de la PàS sur fr.wp c'est "normal", cela arrive quand l'on propose à la suppression une page déjà proposée à la suppression par le passé.
Oh ok, I see. In that case, I guess the best would be tu use the old manual interwiki link system. For the strange RFD on fr.wp it' "normal", that happens when an article was previously send in RFD before.
Cdlt, VIGNERON (talk) 20:54, 16 June 2019 (UTC)

@VIGNERON: I'm not aware of any works that treat them as anything other than fiction.

@Nihonjoe: this item is about "yōkai in a work of fiction" not "yōkai treated as fiction" ; it's close but different (a book can treat them as fiction without being a fiction book itself, isn't is the case of most books in en:Yōkai#Further_reading?). There is many others items with the same patern: yuki-onna in a work of fiction (Q61600414) ghost in a work of fiction (Q30061299), angel in a work of fiction (Q42092139), undead in a work of fiction (Q30061600), jinn in a work of fiction (Q30308127), sprite in a work of fiction (Q30318085) ; I'm guessing they are needed for ontological reasons (criteria 3 of Wikidata:Notability which is very different from Wikipedia concept of Notability), @Valentina.Anitnelav: could you maybe explain why these item are needed?
« there are no articles on any wiki », well just like many items on Wikidata (I would even say it's the vast majority ; almost all of the 20 million item about "scholarly article" don't have and will never have a Wikipedia article).
Cdlt, VIGNERON (talk) 18:02, 18 June 2019 (UTC)
So the vast majority of what is on Wikidata is pointing at nothing? What's the purpose, then? This is why I avoid this place. It makes no sense. ···日本穣? · 投稿 · Talk to Nihonjoe · Join WP Japan on enwiki! 23:47, 18 June 2019 (UTC)
@Nihonjoe: « pointing at nothing », well it's pointing at a lot of things, just not Wikimedia projects. Why? very often because Wikipedias need them! One way to look at it is to think that Wikidata is like Commons but for Data. There is way more files on Commons than there are used on Wikipedia, it's a bit the same for Wikidata and data. Cheers, VIGNERON (talk) 08:00, 20 June 2019 (UTC)
Yes, these items are needed for ontological reasons. From a practical point of view: characters from pop culture/fiction should be kept distinct from characters from mythology/folk belief to make it possible to e.g. search for all characters from folk belief without getting e.g. Rarity (Q9300505), Count Dracula (Q3266236) or Casper the Friendly Ghost (Q1442531) into the result set. - Valentina.Anitnelav (talk) 06:33, 19 June 2019 (UTC)
