List of mongolists (fr: and de:)[edit]

Q19829967 & Q1863833 are french and german wiki version of list of mongolists Popolon (talk) 23:44, 2 November 2018 (UTC)

Moved the frwiki article to the latter item, as keeping the profession and the list of people with that profession separate may be helpful. Mahir256 (talk) 00:09, 3 November 2018 (UTC)

Merging Q58198703 with Q82306[edit]

Hello. Trying to merge Q58198703 with Q82306 gives this message: "Error while "Merge with: Q82306": The two items cannot be merged because one of them links to the other using the properties: P1591, P793" Is this something that can be resolved? Greetings, Apdency (talk) 18:06, 8 November 2018 (UTC)

@Apdency: One is about the person; the other is about the case she was involved in. These should not be merged. Mahir256 (talk) 18:27, 8 November 2018 (UTC)
Thanks for replying Mahir256. Is this so even if the articles all focus on the case, and the nominal difference therefore makes little to no sense? For instance, the Dutch article used to be named "Asia Bibi" from its start in December 2010 to March 2015, when I changed the title to "Zaak-Asia Bibi" (which can be translated with "Asia Bibi case"), after having concluded that its content was not about the person. Would I not have made that change, the article would now be judged as matching with Q58198703 rather than Q82306? Would sound odd to me. Apdency (talk) 18:47, 8 November 2018 (UTC)

Q27349576 and Q23677420[edit]

They are the same--Peter in s (talk) 06:05, 10 November 2018 (UTC)

No. Bamendjing Reservoir (Q27349576) is a reservoir (Q131681), created by Barrage de Bamendjing (Q23677420), a dam (Q12323). (The sitelinks may need to be put on the right item, but the items should not be merged.) —Tacsipacsi (talk) 22:05, 10 November 2018 (UTC)

Tour items[edit]

From time to time, people accidentally merge the tour items, Q16943273 and Q17339402 into Earth (Q2). Should we make the gadget refuse to do merges involving those two items? - Nikki (talk) 09:35, 12 November 2018 (UTC)

Mannini (en) + Mannini (it & de)[edit]

Please, connect these two items (Q56539750 and Q1890766). --Fleur-de-farine (talk) 11:21, 4 December 2018 (UTC)

They aren't the same: the first is an item about surname, the second is a disambiguation. You can use the first with family name (P734) but you can't use the second, because the second can list people, place, book movie etc with this name, it would be a logic error --ValterVB (talk) 12:30, 4 December 2018 (UTC)
Anyway both of them are disambiguation pages with lists of same people. And not an article about surname. --Fleur-de-farine (talk) 12:12, 5 December 2018 (UTC)
No they are different type of wiki pages. You can't find page in en:Special:DisambiguationPages but you can find and page in respective Special:DisambiguationPages. You can add everything in page the only criterium is the spelling, not the meaning, but in page you can talk only about surnames. You can read more about this in our guideline in Wikidata:WikiProject Disambiguation pages/guidelines especially the section "Special cases" --ValterVB (talk) 18:19, 5 December 2018 (UTC)
Sometimes pages should probably be made into disambiguation pages or disambiguation pages should be turned into surname articles. Ok, thank you for this link. --Fleur-de-farine (talk) 20:15, 5 December 2018 (UTC)

Merging Q30689533 and Langinkosken keisarillinen kalastusmaja (Q55595697)[edit]


Some reason I can't merge these two even though they are same subject.  – The preceding unsigned comment was added by RiiPaMi (talk • contribs) at 11:10, 17 December 2018 (UTC).
