Coordinates from Catalan Wikipedia[edit]

I see you uploaded a lot of coordinates from Catalan Wikipedia. There is still a lot of articles with coordinates in Catalan Wikipedia without coordinates in Wikidata. What is needed to upload the remaining ones?--Pere prlpz (talk) 18:44, 13 August 2014 (UTC)

Hi, I ran a global script to import from all languages of Wikipedia. I will import from Catalan Wikipedia but can you give me some examples? Thanks Amir (talk) 19:00, 13 August 2014 (UTC)
Thanks to you.
Some examples: ca:Agulhes deth Pòrt, ca:Alameda de Osuna, ca:Agulla de Bot, ca:Antiga muralla de Torà, ca:Antilles, ca:Basílica de Santa Maria de Vilafranca. A few thousands examples more (and some false positives) can be found in this query, although the query doesn't produce all articles with coordinates to upload because it uses a category that is still being updated. Furthermore, there are a few thousands articles with coordinates but without Wikidata item, like ca:Aeroport (barri de Palma).--Pere prlpz (talk) 21:45, 13 August 2014 (UTC)
Hi. I did the change you requested in ca:Plantilla_Discussió:Coord#Please_add_this_category_into_the_template. The category has been created at ca:Categoria:Articles amb coordenades sense coordenades a Wikidata, but there are two issues that might pose a problem to you:
  • The category includes a few articles with inline coordinates but without title coordinates. I'm asking for help in cawiki to fix this, but maybe you can filter out those articles when importing.
  • The new category still needs a touch to be updated.
I expect both issues to be solved in a few days.--Pere prlpz (talk) 09:47, 18 August 2014 (UTC)

It's working now and adding these coordinates Amir (talk) 11:30, 19 August 2014 (UTC)

Please respect User talk:Ladsgroup#Company with hq. Also consider appropriateness of adding coordinates to items like Q639746 (event), Q427247 (list) or Q16172243 (organization). To keep some consistency of WD it is not possible to just add all coordinates from all articles in another. --Jklamo (talk) 12:22, 19 August 2014 (UTC)
Stopped. I fix it and re-run. Amir (talk) 12:27, 19 August 2014 (UTC)
@Jklamo: I fixed all of them in code except the event, Events can have P625 (like incidents) there is nothing wrong with that Amir (talk) 14:28, 19 August 2014 (UTC)
Thanks for fast fix. --Jklamo (talk) 20:29, 19 August 2014 (UTC)
The problem with Q427247 was a wrong interwiki, now fixed. And I agree that events should have coordinates.--Pere prlpz (talk) 20:51, 21 August 2014 (UTC)

I see most of the remaining 14,000 articles don't have a related Wikidata item. Do you need me to crate such items before importing coordinates?--Pere prlpz (talk) 08:29, 23 August 2014 (UTC)

Sure, Just started and it's working Amir (talk) 08:34, 23 August 2014 (UTC)

Badge for[edit]

For I have already added the badges. --ValterVB (talk) 21:57, 19 August 2014 (UTC)

Thank you for doing it. Amir (talk) 22:00, 19 August 2014 (UTC)

Amir, why are you adding badges without bot-flag? --Infovarius (talk) 06:32, 20 August 2014 (UTC)

Fixed, thank you for noticing it Amir (talk) 09:20, 20 August 2014 (UTC)
Done also for it.wikiquote. --ValterVB (talk) 09:26, 20 August 2014 (UTC)

How do you identify good articles on a Wikipedia? --JulesWinnfield-hu (talk) 10:21, 20 August 2014 (UTC)

Based on having certain template (like w:Template:Featured article) or being in certain category (like w:Category:Featured articles) Amir (talk) 10:54, 20 August 2014 (UTC)
Thank you. I added a category for huwiki to Q8494261. --JulesWinnfield-hu (talk) 14:55, 20 August 2014 (UTC)
And I ran my bot on hu wiki too. It's finished now Amir (talk) 15:10, 20 August 2014 (UTC)
Thank you very much. --JulesWinnfield-hu (talk) 15:17, 20 August 2014 (UTC)

Hi Amir, did you import the badges from fi-wiki already? And do you know is there any way to see all the items with Finnish sitelink + badge? So that I could check that they match with the Finnish Wikipedia. --Stryn (talk) 19:10, 20 August 2014 (UTC)

Do you think to finish this week or do you need help? --ValterVB (talk) 20:00, 20 August 2014 (UTC)

Stryn: It's finished for both featured and good article, I can't see any way to get the list right now but It would be a good idea to be implemented in Wikidata Query (WDQ) Magnus Manske: Can you do something about this?
Putting it on the list. --Magnus Manske (talk) 22:31, 20 August 2014 (UTC)
Thank you both of you! --Stryn (talk) 05:02, 21 August 2014 (UTC)
ValterVB Featured is already finished for all of wikis listed in pywikibot (109 wikis), good articles is running and it'll be finished by tomorrow or the day after at the most Amir (talk) 22:20, 20 August 2014 (UTC)
Srwiki wasn't in pywikibot? At least their badges aren't added on Wikidata, see this edit. --Stryn (talk) 16:27, 27 August 2014 (UTC)
Their category and their template had been moved. I fixed and ran it again. Amir (talk) 20:24, 27 August 2014 (UTC)

Persondata for[edit]

Hi Amir, Bora Bora and Kotz,

It's nice to see that you already met :)

Amir (Ladsgroup) is creating reports that compare person data between languages and finds places where dates need to be corrected. It's quite related to what Bora Bora and Kotz are doing lately in the Hebre Wikipedia.

Amir told me that in order to add the Hebrew Wikipedia to these reports, it needs to use the persondata template more. Kotz & Bora Bora, can you try doing it? I'm too busy in the coming weeks.

Thank you all! --Amir E. Aharoni (talk) 13:13, 23 August 2014 (UTC)

Do what? Kotz (talk) 13:32, 23 August 2014 (UTC)
Hello Kotz, If I want to explain it, my bot is harvesting birth dates in w:Template:PERSONDATA and their similar templates in Italian and German Wikipedia, even though lots of Wikis have it but they don't use it widely on their articles. Do you have something similar to harvest from Hebrew Wikipedia? Amir (talk) 13:43, 23 August 2014 (UTC)

We don't have this. We have 35 or so different templates, for "Basketball player", "Filmwriter", "Scientist" etc. [1] Kotz (talk) 13:52, 23 August 2014 (UTC)

Do you have a template for birth date in general like w:en:Template:Birth date and age? Amir (talk) 13:55, 23 August 2014 (UTC)

no Kotz (talk) 14:37, 23 August 2014 (UTC)

Kotz, the English Wikipedia also has templates for scientists, musicians, and so on, and it also has persondata, which is an invisible template for all people.
Also, can't we somehow use w:he:תבנית:גיל לערכי אישים, on which you worked recently? --Amir E. Aharoni (talk) 14:45, 23 August 2014 (UTC)

Amir E. Aharoni:

  1. hewiki does not have any template, invisible or otherwise, which is used on all people pages, except the 35 per-profession templates described earlier.
  2. w:he:תבנית:גיל לערכי אישים is a parametric template whhich gets as input one or two dates, and outputs a string such as ("died at 45"). This template is transcluded from any of the 35 templates shown above. If any bot is going to use this data, it needs to do one of the following:
    1. recursively pass all the templates until it gets to the invocation of [:w:he:תבנית:גיל לערכי אישים]]
    2. We can have [:w:he:תבנית:גיל לערכי אישים]] provide birth date and death date as a hidden text. Bot should then read the output of the page (post all template expansions) and look for the hidden text.

Does any of this help? Kotz (talk) 15:32, 23 August 2014 (UTC)

At this point I have nothing to add. But I am following up on this discussion... בורה בורה (talk) 01:57, 24 August 2014 (UTC)

A barnstar for you[edit]

Wikidata barnstar.svg The Wikidata Barnstar
This is all I can do for now: Thank you very much for all your work with bots, and your continued assistance. You're awesome! (I can't say that enough.) Jon Harald Søby (talk) 15:18, 24 August 2014 (UTC)
Thank you dear Jon, I'm happy that I can help and do something :) Amir (talk) 15:37, 24 August 2014 (UTC)

Dexbot: Removing duplicate values[edit]

Your bot should consider attributes of duplicates values. If there are two identical values of a property, it should never remove that one with attributes and leave that one without attributes.

this happened here: Thomas11 (talk) 07:34, 26 August 2014 (UTC)

I will fix it Amir (talk) 15:03, 26 August 2014 (UTC)


Just for your information, in case it could be useful: in [2] your bot imported from dewiki a birth date as it were death date.--Pere prlpz (talk) 14:13, 26 August 2014 (UTC) Another one [3].--Pere prlpz (talk) 14:24, 26 August 2014 (UTC)

You will have them fixed in several hours Amir (talk) 14:50, 26 August 2014 (UTC)

The statements that have been wrongly added by my bot are:

I removed them all and now I have a nice report on people who have the same birth and death date (~600 items) Amir (talk) 21:07, 26 August 2014 (UTC)

User:Ladsgroup/Wikinews integration/ko[edit]

Why iw links starts with q:? by Revicomplaint? at 07:59, 30 August 2014 (UTC)

Hey, Because I forgot to change the settings while I was porting these scripts from Wikiquote integration to Wikinews integration. I wanted to let the bot finish reporting and fix them afterwards. The bot still working and reporting Amir (talk) 08:02, 30 August 2014 (UTC)
Got it. Thanks! Face-smile.svg by Revicomplaint? at 08:07, 30 August 2014 (UTC)

Problematic edit in[edit]

Hi, users noticed a couple of problems with your bot's test edits.

Scroll to the end of this version's source and see a couple of things:

  1. Some Link FA/GA templates are not removed - mk, mo, de, zh
  2. Too many empty lines are left. You are probably only removing the template, but not the associated line endings.

Can you please look at it closely?

Thanks! --Amir E. Aharoni (talk) 19:31, 31 August 2014 (UTC)

Hey Amir, Sorry for being a little late:

  1. My bot doesn't remove templates that haven't been imported to wikidata. It's important because It allows to see what's missing (we can clean up former featured articles in every wiki by running python featured -fromall -former, If you want I can run that for you too). You can read more about this in w:Wikipedia:Bots/Requests_for_approval/Dexbot_2
  2. I fixed that, It's working okay now :)

BestAmir (talk) 11:09, 1 September 2014 (UTC)

Thanks for fixing number 2. Can you please do another trial run on 10 articles?
I'm not sure that I understand number 1. Is it because these languages haven't adapted to the new system yet? Will you keep running the bot to remove these templates as they are getting adapted? --Amir E. Aharoni (talk) 11:33, 1 September 2014 (UTC)
Another trial is done, Thank you for your work here. for the first issue there are two reasons mainly: 1- The badge isn't in Wikidata (Maybe my bot hasn't imported them or it's because the article is no longer featured/good) 2- I remove Template:Link GA separately since it uses another generator (backlinks of Template:Link GA) combining them and writing a combined script doesn't worth the time and it may cause issues. 11:48, 1 September 2014 (UTC)
You have the bot permission! --Amir E. Aharoni (talk) 16:45, 1 September 2014 (UTC)
Thank you dear Amir Amir (talk) 19:38, 1 September 2014 (UTC)
I have blocked the bot for the time being, it is malfunctioning. It removes the template without verifying the badge is actually on wikidata. Please fix this, Thanks Matanya (talk) 07:49, 2 September 2014 (UTC)
Matanya: Hey, Can you give me examples to see? I wrote the script in a way to remove just migrated badges (I wrote reports based on it) Just one thing that my bot removes is when the article marked featured in Wikidata but marked good in Wikipedia (I added it in the newest run) because it shows the Wikipedia is not updated (usually articles got promoted from good to featured vice versa is uncommon) Amir (talk) 08:09, 2 September 2014 (UTC)
We used to have a star in the "in other languages"menu (interwiki box). Since the bot started removing the templates, it broke. I'm not sure who's blame it is. I'll check with reporters if they noticed more issues. Matanya (talk) 09:23, 2 September 2014 (UTC)

Meaning of featured article edit[edit]

In this edit you added something to the Isaac Newton page related to featured articles. Does this mean that the Isaac Newton article in one or more language versions of Wikipedia is a featured article, or does it mean the Wikidata page about Newton is a featured article? If the latter, it shouldn't be, because the birth and death dates are wrong. Jc3s5h (talk) 12:56, 2 September 2014 (UTC)

Hey, Issac Newton item is not featured in Wikidata, it's not a showcase item, but It implies that article of Isaac Newton in ar, eg, bs, mt and vls is featured and in ru wiki is a good article. Amir (talk) 19:05, 2 September 2014 (UTC)
Thanks. I learned from another editor that the Isaac Newton birth and death dates are correct in the database, they are just displayed in a confusing way. Looking at the Wikidata page, it seems to be saying the dates are in the Julian calendar, but what it really means is that the dates are in the Gregorian calendar, but should be displayed to the end user in the Julian calendar, which means that whatever software is grabbing the dates from Wikidata ought to do a Gregorian-to-Julian conversion before displaying the date. Jc3s5h (talk) 12:58, 3 September 2014 (UTC)

Source of data ?[edit]


Where did you get this date of birth (P569) on Paul Féval (Q472568) ? (diff of Dexbot).

On many blogs and general website, we can find this date but I never had a reliable source (but I have several reliable on his birth the 29th). Did you have a reliable source ?

Cdlt, VIGNERON (talk) 17:42, 2 September 2014 (UTC)

Hi, Based on this the bot imported it from English Wikipedia which is not a reliable source so you can easily remove or change them if you find any issues. Amir (talk) 19:23, 2 September 2014 (UTC)

Raúl González[edit]

Hi. Your bot added Farsi description to Q11576, but on 19th March 2014, a vandal had changed his nationality from Spanish to Argentinan. Accordingly your bot added description بازیکن فوتبال آرژانتینی which should be changed to Spanish footballer. As I don't know Farsi, I am not able to correct it myself, so I hope you can fix it. Best regards, --Wikijens (talk) 11:28, 4 September 2014 (UTC)

Hi, I changed it to "Spanish football player" Thank you for attention Amir (talk) 11:37, 4 September 2014 (UTC)

Contributions' size[edit]

Hi, can you take a look at my contributions? Suddenly, the size after change was dramatically high, and I can't figure out why. Was there any wrong with my account? Please reply on my talk page, as I'm not always available on Wikidata. Quenhitran (talk) 08:01, 5 September 2014 (UTC)

Thank you. Quenhitran (talk) 08:35, 5 September 2014 (UTC)
In the case you had no answer: this is OK, this was a change in inner format of items. --Infovarius (talk) 07:40, 7 September 2014 (UTC)
Hey Infovarius: this user asked to answer on his/her talk page "Please reply on my talk page". I answered there :) Amir (talk) 09:52, 7 September 2014 (UTC)

scn.Wikipedia FA badges[edit]

Hi Ladsgroup. Thanks for the work you have been doing moving FA and GA info into Wikidata. Would you be able to import the badge info for the articles at this category on scn.wikipedia? Most seem to have not been imported yet. Cheers. Delsion23 (talk) 13:44, 7 September 2014 (UTC)

Hi, Thank you for your notice. I added them and I started to remove them in Wikipedia. Amir (talk) 16:58, 7 September 2014 (UTC)

Replacing correct values to invalid[edit]

Hi, please do not replace valid values: [4]. — Ivan A. Krestinin (talk) 17:33, 8 September 2014 (UTC)

Hi, sorry. Stopped and Fixed Amir (talk) 17:41, 8 September 2014 (UTC)
Thank you for fast response. There are many errors in bot contrib... This error type is very bad because it can not be detected by {{Constraint:Conflicts with}} (for example in Property talk:P21). Value replacing operation is dangerous, value adding is more safe... — Ivan A. Krestinin (talk) 17:51, 8 September 2014 (UTC)
You're completely right, I wrote a news script and I forgot to check that. I just fixed any mess my bot made about this and after checking now I'm relaunching it. Amir (talk) 05:27, 9 September 2014 (UTC)

One link has two or more badges[edit]

Hi, is it possible to make a list of articles which have two badges seen on a wiki. Here you can see that enwiki has two different badges (one came from wikidata, one was in article text). Another case: this article has two badges for svwiki (Link LA [not yet supported by Wikidata] and Link FA), so Link FA overrode Link LA, but LA is the correct status of sv article. There who status templates for svwiki (both of them wrong, correct badge coming from Wikidata). Do you think it's possible to make a list of those cases so I could fix them by hand then? --Stryn (talk) 20:05, 10 September 2014 (UTC)

Hi, Good idea. I'll do it very soon. Amir (talk) 12:25, 11 September 2014 (UTC)
User:Ladsgroup/Badges/fi Amir (talk) 20:45, 11 September 2014 (UTC)
Thanks! I've now fixed those. Feel free to delete the page if you want. Do you have any plans for the rest of codes (link fa, link ga) which are still left on articles? Btw, did your bot already check all the articles on fiwiki? I wonder why it didn't remove codes e.g. from w:fi:HD 2039. --Stryn (talk) 20:45, 12 September 2014 (UTC)
I checked log of good badges for fi wiki. Turns out due to server error, the bot crashed (This strange error that I haven't seen it before: "Received incomplete XML data. Sleeping for 375 seconds...", in endless loop) I just restarted it and checking it by myself. Amir (talk) 21:12, 12 September 2014 (UTC)
Done. Amir (talk) 18:10, 13 September 2014 (UTC)

Need help with fawiki[edit]

Hi Amir,

For once, a message not to the bot handler, but to the farsi speaker.

I am always tidying up items related to French people, and now I am blocker on a few which are linked to fawiki only. Can you please help?

It looks like Q16045043 (Q16045043) is dup with Aristide Briand (Q179888), Q16046895 (Q16046895) with Godfrey of Bouillon (Q76721), and Q16047017 (Q16047017) with Robert Doisneau (Q154599). However, they all have their own fawiki articles. If I am right, can you post a message on the fawiki community board and ask them to removes the dups on their side first?

Thanks, --LBE (talk) 12:35, 21 September 2014 (UTC)
