ویکتوریا (رومانی)[edit]

Hi, There is something wrong here --JulesWinnfield-hu (talk) 01:58, 30 December 2014 (UTC)

Hi, thank you for letting me know. It was an issue in Persian Wikivoyage and the articles should be merged. I merged them. Amir (talk) 08:39, 30 December 2014 (UTC)

Your bot doesn't take into account that Wikinews categories are added to "usual" (main WP namespace) elements[edit]

Hello. Please note this is not the proper way to add sensible descriptions. Thank you beforehands. Ain92 (talk) 22:05, 1 January 2015 (UTC)

Hello, My bot did edit due to instance of (P31): Category. Not based on sitelinks Amir (talk) 13:43, 2 January 2015 (UTC)

Persons based on what?[edit]

Hi Amir. I reverted two of Dexbot's December 24 edits today, where you set "is a human" statements on Corey and Trina (Q5170468) and Caroma (Q5045511), both times referenced with "English Wikipedia". The problem is: Both enwiki articles are not about persons - and they do not contain (and did not for years, at least) any categories or infoboxes stating they are. Where does the bot take that information from? --YMS (talk) 22:25, 1 January 2015 (UTC)

Hey, I'll check and will inform you soon. Amir (talk) 13:41, 2 January 2015 (UTC)
I checked, I was writing a Natural Language processor to find out P31 of article based on first sentence, I ran it very limited and it was an error that didn't catch my eyes, thank you for telling me, I won't run it again. Amir (talk) 21:05, 6 January 2015 (UTC)

Dexbot (2)[edit]

Why did it set labels for like 'Category:July 25 2011' to 'Category:July 25'? Mjbmr (talk) 14:08, 2 January 2015 (UTC)

Give a diff Amir (talk) 14:17, 2 January 2015 (UTC)
Here some examples: [1] [2] [3]. Mjbmr (talk) 14:27, 2 January 2015 (UTC)
it's because of the comma in title of the category. Amir (talk) 21:09, 6 January 2015 (UTC)
What do you mean, you were making arrays with commas? Mjbmr (talk) 21:22, 6 January 2015 (UTC)
NoAmir (talk) 22:02, 6 January 2015 (UTC)
So what it is then? can you fix all those labels? Mjbmr (talk) 22:26, 6 January 2015 (UTC)
It is because there are many articles on the English Wikipedia containing commas in their name, for example en:Atlanta, Texas. So the text after "Atlanta" is for disambiguation purpose, and labels on Wikidata should not contain a disambiguation, so that's why the texts after commas have been exluded from the label. Hope you understood my bad explanation. --Stryn (talk) 16:48, 7 January 2015 (UTC)
Who are you? those are categories in English Wikinews, duh?! Mjbmr (talk) 20:33, 7 January 2015 (UTC)
Your bot is malfunctioning, fix it or don't run it. Mjbmr (talk) 20:46, 7 January 2015 (UTC)

Request for ja.wp[edit]

Hi. Can you automate updating of badges for Japanese good and featured articles? Good articles are listed w:ja:Wikipedia:良質な記事/リスト (list) and w:ja:Category:良質な記事 (category), and featured articles are listed in w:ja:Wikipedia:秀逸な記事 (in the section "秀逸な記事"). --fryed-peach (talk) 14:11, 6 January 2015 (UTC)

Hey, It is already automated for all languages. Amir (talk) 21:12, 6 January 2015 (UTC)
Really? For example, Japanese article for w:en:Order of the Garter, "w:ja:ガーター勲章" has become a good article in November 2014, but Q215248 doesn't have the badge for it. --fryed-peach (talk) 12:24, 7 January 2015 (UTC)
I ran the bot and it worked okay, so the issue is with crontab (the system that automatically runs scripts). I fix them, thank you for letting me know. Amir (talk) 20:51, 7 January 2015 (UTC)
The issue is fixed now. Amir (talk) 21:08, 7 January 2015 (UTC)
Thank you for your great work! --fryed-peach (talk) 10:28, 9 January 2015 (UTC)


Mjbmr is indef blocked in fawiki because "سو استفاده از زاپاس در موقع قطع دسترسی و دلایل سابق", What does it mean? Google says "Misuse of backup at the block and the former grounds".--GZWDer (talk) 05:10, 7 January 2015 (UTC)

Hey, It means "w:WP:SOCK and reasons for previous blocks" (which was libel: (S)he called one of users Iranian government agent and claimed that (S)he was arrested after CU which turned out to be a lie). This user was also blocked in meta for three years due to creating impersonator account to de-sysop one of admins and used toolserver to bypass CU, also (s)he constantly sends me e-mail and indirectly calls me Iranian government hireling. Amir (talk) 07:45, 7 January 2015 (UTC)
@GZWDer Hey, man, why is that even matter here? you could ask myself, the block is not even related to this user, that was a personal block, Persian people were blocking me for not a such good reason for years, like German people were blocking my bot. and yeah I shouldn't push the button on meta, stewards never checks unicodes, you always have to check what you're clicking on as I told on meta, I am intelligent, stewards must be intelligent, and yes I'm not Iranian anymore but I do know Persian.
@Ladsgroup I never called you "Iranian government hireling", you're just paranoid. Mjbmr (talk) 20:51, 7 January 2015 (UTC)
All people in fa.wp and meta and de.wp can't understand but you do! Amazing Amir (talk) 20:55, 7 January 2015 (UTC)
I never said that. Mjbmr (talk) 21:04, 7 January 2015 (UTC)

Creating Wikidata items for de-Wikisource categories[edit]

Hello Ladsgroup! Could you please tell your bot not to create any more Wikidata items for categories from the German Wikisource? Most of them don't make sense there, and those who are making sense can be and should be added to existing items by hand.

Thanks! Jonathan Groß (talk) 15:31, 22 January 2015 (UTC)

Hey, It's fixed now. Thank you for notifying me Amir (talk) 12:11, 23 January 2015 (UTC)
Thank you. Jonathan Groß (talk) 13:45, 23 January 2015 (UTC)

Incorrect birth date imported[edit]

In this edit in 2013 you imported a date for the birth of Oliver Cromwell incorrectly; you failed to convert from the Julian calendar (which was the calendar in use at the time of Cromwell's birth in England) to the Gregorian calendar (which is always used for the storage of dates in Wikidata). I have corrected this instance, but it would be helpful if you would go back and correct any similar incorrect edits your bot may have made. Jc3s5h (talk) 22:34, 25 January 2015 (UTC)

Hey, You're right. I will investigate it. Amir (talk) 23:48, 26 January 2015 (UTC)
It's worse than I realized. It turns out that at the moment, Wikidata's documentation says that dates should be stored with 11 digits in the year ( section Date and times) but currently newly stored values have 16 digits in the year. Since ISO 8601 requires agreement among data exchange partners about the number of digits in the year, all Wikidata dates are invalid.
See also Wikidata:Project chat#Which calendar was used? and Wikidata:Project chat#More date problems. Jc3s5h (talk) 23:57, 26 January 2015 (UTC)
This is an issue with development team rather than people who input the data. Amir (talk) 00:17, 27 January 2015 (UTC)
It's both. The development team needs to get its act in order. Then thousands of dates must be fixed because the only way to tell whether a date is really Julian or Gregorian is for a human editor to consult a reliable source. Jc3s5h (talk) 00:34, 27 January 2015 (UTC)
