Task/s: This robot will add data in the context of Digital discoverability project of the RDIFQ (Q62382524).

@Antoine2711: Is your request still supposed to be active? Do you have test-/exmple-edits? Lymantria (talk) 07:18, 17 August 2019 (UTC)
@Lymantria: No, it's mainly batch operations that I do myself. There is nothing automated yet, and there won't be for the project I've been working in the last 9 months. --Antoine2711 (talk) 05:15, 2 March 2020 (UTC)
  • @Antoine2711, Lymantria: It seems to be unfinished, many items created are somewhat empty and not used by any other item: [1]. @‎Nomen ad hoc: had listed one of them for deletion. If the others aren't used or completed either, I think we should delete them. Other than that: lots of good additions. --- Jura 12:57, 8 September 2019 (UTC)
@Lymantria, Jura: The data I added all comes from a clean data set provided by distributors. I tried to do my best, but I might not have done everything perfectly. Someone spooted an empty item, and I added the missing data. If there are any other, I will do the same corrections.
My request for the bot is still pertinent as I will do other additions. What information do I need to provide for my bot request? --Antoine2711 (talk) 16:44, 8 September 2019 (UTC)
@Jura1: Sorry for not responding earlier. Theses people are team members on a movie, and I needed to create a statement with {{P]3092}} and also a quantifier, object has role (P3831), and in the case of Ronald Fahm (Q65116570), he's a hairdresser (Q55187). Ideally, I should be able to also push that in the Dxx, the description of this person. But I must be careful. I created around 1500 persons, and I might have 200 still not connected. Do you see anything else? --Antoine2711 (talk) 03:37, 25 February 2020 (UTC)
Yesterday I looked into this request again and noticed that the problems I had identified 5 months ago were still not fixed. If you need help finding all of them, I could do so. --- Jura 08:46, 25 February 2020 (UTC)
@Jura1: yes, anything you see that I didn't do well, tell me, and I'll correct it. If I create 500 items, and if I just do 1 % of errors, it's still 5 bad item creation. So even if I'm careful, I'm still learning and doing mistake. I try to correct them as fast as I can, and if you can help me pin-point problems, I'm fix them, like I did with everyone here. If you have SparQL queries (or other way of find lots of data) let me know and don't hesitate to share with me. Regards, Antoine --Antoine2711 (talk) 06:37, 2 March 2020 (UTC)
  • There's a deletion request for one of these items at Wikidata:Requests for deletions#Q65119761. I've mentioned a likely identifier for that one. Instead of creating empty items it would be better to find identifiers and links between items before creating them. For example Peter James (Q65115398) could be any of 50 people listed on IMDB - possibly nm6530075, the actor in Nuts, Nothing and Nobody (Q65055294)/tt3763316 but the items haven't been linked and they are possibly not notable enough for Wikidata. Other names in the credits there include Élise de Blois (Q65115717) (probably the same person as the Wikidata item) and Frédéric Lavigne (Q65115798) (possibly the same one but I'm not certain) and several with no item so I'm not sure if this is the source of these names. With less common names there could be one item that is then assumed to be another person with the same name. Peter James (talk) 18:29, 9 September 2019 (UTC)
Hi @Peter James: I think that most of theses are now linked. For a few hundred, I still need to put the occupation. I also think that I'm going to state, for the ones with few information, the movies in which they worked. Might help to identify those persons. I've also created links to given name and surname, but that doesn't help much for identification. Note that I added alot of IMDB ID, and those are excellent. Do you have suggestion for me? Regards, Antoine --Antoine2711 (talk) 04:53, 2 March 2020 (UTC)
  • I suggest we block this bot until we see a plan of action for cleanup of the problems already identified. --- Jura 09:44, 24 February 2020 (UTC)
Cleanup seems to be ongoing. --- Jura 09:36, 25 February 2020 (UTC)
  •   Comment I fixed writing system (P282) on several hundreds of family name items created yesterday, e.g. at [2]. --- Jura 09:42, 1 March 2020 (UTC)
I didn't know that alphabet latin (Latin alphabet (Q41670)) and alphabet latin (Latin script (Q8229)) where actually 2 different things. Thank you for pointing that out. --Antoine2711 (talk) 04:25, 2 March 2020 (UTC)
  • when doing that, I came across a few "last" names that aren't actually family names, e.g. H. Vila (for Rodrigo H. Vila), and listed them for deletion. You might want to double-check all other. --- Jura 10:02, 1 March 2020 (UTC)
Yes, thanks for pointing that out. I'm also cleaning that up. --Antoine2711 (talk) 04:25, 2 March 2020 (UTC)
@Antoine2711: you seem to be running an unauthorized bot that is doing weird edits. Please explain. Multichill (talk) 15:46, 7 March 2020 (UTC)
@Multichill: Hi, yes, I did see those errors. I was cleaning that yesterday, and will continue today. This was a edit batch with 3% of mistake, on a 3000 lot. Even if 3% is not a lot, in those quantities, I must be very careful. Unfortunately I'm still learning. Please note that nothing this bot do is not supervised and launched by a human decision (which may be unperfect…). Regards, Antoine --Antoine2711 (talk) 17:12, 7 March 2020 (UTC)
