Wikidata:Requests for permissions/Bot/BeneBot* 7

Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Because if you import data from wikipedia the correct source would be "imported from": "enwiki" and not "stated in":whateverpage. You have to check the sources for the dates if you want to reference them. --Lbenedix (talk) 20:25, 10 February 2014 (UTC)
Hello, this page is closed for comments but I find that a strange argument. If "died in 1995, source: A" is correct in Wikipedia copying the same statement in Wikidata remains just as correct. --Zolo (talk) 08:07, 11 February 2014 (UTC)
Sorry, I haven't seen that the discussion was closed, I heared about this bot request on twitter and wanted to oppose that saying a source A makes a claim about X referencing source B is another claim than referencing source B directly. --Lbenedix (talk) 09:03, 11 February 2014 (UTC)
Let's see it this way:
Wikipedia says : ("source A says B")
if ("source A says B") is true and BeneBot* copies ("source A says B") onto Wikidata then
we have ("source A says B") on Wikidata and that is still correct
if ("source A says B") is correct but BeneBot* copies something else then
BeneBot* should be fixed
if ("source A says B") is incorrect (that is the source does not says that), then Wikipedia should be fixed, and Wikidata should also be fixed. --Zolo (talk) 11:30, 11 February 2014 (UTC)
In my opinion it's wrong to get information from source A and claim it came from source B. I learnt that you have to reference the sources you use and not claim that you took the primary source if you only read a secondary source. --Lbenedix (talk) 22:50, 11 February 2014 (UTC)
