Task/s: Import some data of administrative divisions in China.
Function details: We already have some data (most of them were extracted from pages on www.stats.gov.cn) stored as templates on zhwiki. I'm planning to move them to Wikidata, and with Wikidata it'll be easier to add more data in a structured way.

Could you please do some test edits? Besides, I prefer to wait a little while until we can use webpages as references. --Stevenliuyi (talk) 07:00, 26 April 2013 (UTC)
Well is there a specific item we can use to represent www.stats.gov.cn? Legoktm (talk) 07:02, 26 April 2013 (UTC)
Yep. We may also want to wait for qualifier support, as data on Q1509446 are grouped by year. Liangent (talk) 09:44, 26 April 2013 (UTC)
Qualifiers are already live :) Legoktm (talk) 09:55, 26 April 2013 (UTC) Oh but you'll need the time datatype... Legoktm (talk) 09:56, 26 April 2013 (UTC)
For year-only time ... I may abuse items like Q1990 but it doesn't sound good. Liangent (talk) 12:50, 26 April 2013 (UTC)
Can you do some trial runs? I think it's fine if we use items for years now as long as we go back and convert them to the right datatype. Legoktm (talk) 15:47, 3 May 2013 (UTC)
Actually I don't have a ready-to-run codebase yet because there's still something missing which I want. For example, coordinates, names (as a property, see my comments in WD:PC), and some other property similar to Property:P442 （going to propose it soon). I drafted User:Liangent-bot/prcadmin for all datatypes / properties / items I need as dependency. Liangent (talk) 11:44, 10 May 2013 (UTC)
I'm using source = imported from Chinese Wikipedia instead of Q1509446 now because there were manual edits on original data on Wikipedia... For the same reason, "as of" can't be determined properly. These qualifiers may be used in any direct imports from Q1509446 in the future. In a second pass I'll add Property:P132 and that "name" property. The first property is there because I haven't sorted out all possible values for it (created as Wikidata items, and listed in User:Liangent-bot/prcadmin. It could be nice if someone will give me a helping hand). Liangent (talk) 08:03, 14 June 2013 (UTC)
Edits between 09:20, 14 June 2013 and 09:30, 14 June 2013 are latest trial runs, with the feature to add sources. Liangent (talk) 09:31, 14 June 2013 (UTC)

Your test edits between 09:20 and 09:30 on June 14 seem correct. I have no formal knowledge on Chinese subdivisions and the only anomaly I saw was Q11065282. Was P150 done correctly? If so, then I saw no other issues myself. Regards, — MoeEpsilon 21:29, 7 July 2013 (UTC)
