Please don't mass-create empty items for the Dutch Wikipedia. The local community opposed this. Sjoerd de Bruin (talk) 19:40, 11 November 2017 (UTC)

OK --&beer&love (talk) 08:35, 13 November 2017 (UTC)

Amharic year articles[edit]

do not link or move any Amharic years. The Amharic calendar uses year numbers that do not correspond with the European Gregorian years and are 7 or 8 years off. We have separate articles for European years that should not be delinked. Sincerely, Til Eulenspiegel (talk) 00:22, 29 November 2017 (UTC)

OK --&beer&love (talk) 00:23, 29 November 2017 (UTC)

Musical groups[edit]

Could you only add country of origin (P495) to musical groups? We don't use P17 there. Sjoerd de Bruin (talk) 15:21, 1 December 2017 (UTC)

Gerrit Besselaar (Q31736779)[edit]

Hi &beer&love,

With this edit you stated that Gerrit Besselaar's nationality is South African, and surely he has worked in SA for several years. He is however born in the Netherlands, has worked there too for many years and he died there, so I wondered what your source is. Among the identifiers Deutsche Nationalbibliothek connects him with South Africa, without –as far as I can see– making a statement about his nationality. I would prefer to leave his nationality blank, rather than risk to be wrong. What's your opinion? — bertux 22:26, 1 January 2018 (UTC)

Enrique Planchart[edit]

Hi! Thank you for your edits in Enrique Planchart! However, I reverted some of them because they referred to Planchart the poet, while the item refers to the mathematician and rector. Cheers! --Jamez42 (talk) 16:47, 4 January 2018 (UTC)

Koji Kondo[edit]

Hi, You added picture to Koji Kondo (Q2207066) like this. But, this picture is not Koji Kondo (Q2207066) (footballer). This picture is Koji Kondo (Q356782) (composer). So, please don't add this picuture to Koji Kondo (Q2207066) (footballer). Cheers, --Japan Football (talk) 01:33, 18 January 2018 (UTC)

too imprecise birth dates, when explicit day-date is in the article...[edit]


You massively and blindly added thousands of place of birth (P19) -> 20th century to people, without even checking if there was a more precise date in the linked article... this is NOT a good job !! because the tools used to retrieve dates from the articles all ignore items where place of birth (P19) as already been set - thus preventing other contributors to do a better job :(

I don't know what tool you used, but you even did not use the birth date categories on wp articles, that would, at least, have given the year…

Could you please stop it... and preferably review what you did to add the correct date, or remove the imprecise one. --Hsarrazin (talk) 12:46, 20 January 2018 (UTC)

Also don't add date of birth (P569) to disambiguation page items like here. Thank you! --Marsupium (talk) 18:31, 27 January 2018 (UTC)
It did expose some wrong sitelink that was moved afterwards. The statement wasn't deleted, though. But a good reason to not pre-filter for stuff like this. Sjoerd de Bruin (talk) 18:41, 27 January 2018 (UTC)

Country of citizenship[edit]

This appears to be an error. Please don't repeat it, and please undo any other such examples. Andy Mabbett (Pigsonthewing); Talk to Andy; Andy's edits 12:21, 18 February 2018 (UTC)

Alexandre Ziegler[edit]

Hi there.

Please, before creating an item, make sure it doesn't already exist. I've merged Q47501596 with Q29646393. Nomen ad hoc (talk) 20:28, 18 February 2018 (UTC).

Same for Q47500163... Nomen ad hoc (talk) 22:14, 19 February 2018 (UTC).

Daisuke Asakura[edit]

Hi, please stop adding the wrong picture to the Daisuke Asakura's Wikidata. The singer of the image is Takanori Nishikawa, also know as T.M.Revolution. Please don't repeat it, and please don't undo my editions. --Debiit (talk) 15:18, 16 March 2018 (UTC)


Hola. Por favor, dejar de cambiar etiquetas para que comiencen con mayúscula... cuando no deben hacerlo (ejemplo). Un saludo. strakhov (talk) 21:01, 16 March 2018 (UTC) ː ok --&beer&love (talk) 21:02, 16 March 2018 (UTC)


Hi Beer&Love, I think hiwiki isn't eligible for "permanent" duplicate items as they don't seem to have several articles about the same person systemically (hywiki does). One of the two sitelinks was a redirect. Removing that allowed to merge the items.
--- Jura 23:02, 21 March 2018 (UTC) ː OK, I check my error. Thanks, --&beer&love (talk) 23:05, 21 March 2018 (UTC)


Do you get notifications from people undoing your edits (e.g. me yesterday). See Wikidata:Contact_the_development_team#Undoing_User:&beer&love_doesn't_trigger_notification.

sport at multi-sport events (Q51031626)[edit]

sport at multi-sport events (Q51031626) is poorly defined. We typically distinguish between competitions and individual events held at a competition, which is not the case for this item. I see that you already brought it to use in both ways. How to address this problem?

We also had a related discussion at Wikidata talk:WikiProject Sports#Multiple sports disciplines. There was no activity recently, but some aspects are still to be discussed. —MisterSynergy (talk) 14:35, 27 March 2018 (UTC)

The problem still exists and it does not help that you add even more problematic subclass and instance relations with value sport at multi-sport events (Q51031626) to other items. This really needs to be discussed before implementation. --MisterSynergy (talk) 19:04, 10 April 2018 (UTC)
The problem was raised again in Wikidata_talk:WikiProject_Sports#Revisited, if you would be interested to join. Jagulin (talk) 05:37, 24 July 2019 (UTC)

Hi. How is a single cycle race a sports season? --Tagishsimon (talk) 12:08, 29 April 2018 (UTC)

It's STILL NOT A SPORTS SEASON even with knobs on it. It's a single cycle race. What's wrong with you? --12:47, 29 April 2018 (UTC)

A barnstar for you![edit]

I just wanted to show my appreciation for your tireless effort and contribution to Wikidata, including the improvement of countless items I've created. Thank you! --Jamez42 (talk) 16:57, 3 May 2018 (UTC)

Person groups[edit]

Hello, please do not add person-specific properties to person groups items like this. Use person items instead. — Ivan A. Krestinin (talk) 08:36, 13 May 2018 (UTC)


Vivian McPeak (Q28839922): you made the claim that Vivian McPeak is female. Was that based on anything? It is certainly incorrect. - Jmabel (talk) 04:56, 19 May 2018 (UTC)

Use of ranks[edit]

At Ottó Koroknyai (Q28722241) you have marked the date of birth 1856 as deprecated. Please note Help:Ranking: “The deprecated rank is used for statements that are known to include errors”. You probably wanted the statement with the (not contradicting) day precision value “13 April 1856” to be the best statement. In this case you should have marked that one as preferred. Thanks for noticing! Cheers, --Marsupium (talk) 11:30, 21 May 2018 (UTC)

Ok.. thanks. --&beer&love (talk) 11:32, 21 May 2018 (UTC)

Participant of Commonwealth Games in Badminton[edit]

I've seen that you added the property Participant of Commonwealth Games to a lot of badminton players. I tried to add for all games the exact discipline the players participated in. For instance, for Zarinah Abdullah there is already the property Participant of Badminton at the 1998 Commonwealth Games – Women's Singles with the ranking 5. Until 2014, nearly all results are already in this manner available on Wikidata. For me, these exact disciplines and rankings are more useful than the unspecific Participant of Commonwealth Games xxxx. What do you think about this way of result presentation? Is it for you also possible, to add the 2018 results especially for badminton in this way? Florentyna (talk) 14:27, 21 May 2018 (UTC)

Point in time vs. time period[edit]

I guess it is better to use time period instead of point in time for seasons running over a year break, see [1]. Best Florentyna (talk) 15:45, 12 June 2018 (UTC)

Recent deaths from Wikipedia[edit]

Hi &beer&love,

I noticed you added some 500 statements based on the lists with year-precision only, e.g. [2]. Please note that the lists weren't designed to be used that way. Pasleim and myself built the reports to provide an overview and to feed a tool that allows to view Wikipedia articles when adding dates and, if deemed correct, to add the day-precision dates to Wikidata. Hsarrazin, myself and a few others, regularly or occasionally, do add dates. Personally, I would suggest to Pasleim to discontinue the generation of these lists, if they keep being used that way. I will stop creating new items that could appear there.
--- Jura 13:51, 15 June 2018 (UTC) - OK --&beer&love (talk) 16:55, 17 June 2018 (UTC)

ouch. thanks for ping. Do you think it would be possible to undo those, so the real death date can be fetched, instead of having to do this manually ? --Hsarrazin (talk) 09:30, 18 June 2018 (UTC)
I have already reviewed all the dates. --&beer&love (talk) 12:07, 19 June 2018 (UTC)
Thanks. I was a bit worried.
--- Jura 06:19, 24 June 2018 (UTC)

You clearly aren't doing this. There are no sources for Q259484 being dead. Same with Stan Lee per below. @Jura1: There may be more of these cases... Innotata (talk) 06:09, 5 July 2018 (UTC)

Date (P585) if P580[edit]

Please don't add a field P585 if there is already a P580. A stage race has no "data", it lasts between a start and an end date. Thank you. Psemdel (talk) 20:29, 15 June 2018 (UTC)

It's not really problematic. It helps determine the year this takes place.
--- Jura 06:20, 24 June 2018 (UTC)


Hello, help me understand please. What's the rationale in adding "date" if there's already a property:p580 and a property:p582 field filled? -- Blackcat (talk) 21:42, 23 June 2018 (UTC)

Most events don't have them.
--- Jura 06:20, 24 June 2018 (UTC)
Still don't understand (my fault): what date has to do with the start and end date, which are two different things than a generic "date" ? -- Blackcat (talk) 21:52, 2 July 2018 (UTC)
Because a stage race don't have a "date", it is absurd (like "what is the year of the middle age?"). You create bugs in thousand of pages because of your automatism (for example Tour de France 2018) and help nobody. Just add an exception. Psemdel (talk) 20:42, 16 July 2018 (UTC)
I now notice that you make this on all pages concerning all stage races from all time. thank you. Can you please correct it? Psemdel (talk) 20:47, 16 July 2018 (UTC)
And date is not "year". If I have a stage race between the 25 December and the 2 January, which "date" do you add? Up to now we just looked at P580 or P582 and it works perfectly well (and suppose that a stage race don't have a date, and a single day race has one, it was easy). Psemdel (talk) 20:50, 16 July 2018 (UTC)
Existe P585 y P2348 para diferenciar si intervalo de tiempo comprende un año o varios. Claro que lo podemos eliminar. ¿Pero lo hacemos solo en el deporte ciclismo? ¿sólo las ediciones recientes o las antiguas? ¿sólo si están los dos valores: fecha de inicio y fecha de fin? --&beer&love (talk) 20:56, 16 July 2018 (UTC)
I have done research and there are records with the three dates from minimum 2015. I think it gives problem with the cycling module. --&beer&love (talk) 21:03, 16 July 2018 (UTC)
For the case of the date, we changed the code of our module to adapt to your "idea". Please in the future, try to listen to other user comments before deploying procedure on huge amount of items. We don't aim at disturbing you, we only noticed that the module was not delivering the correct result anymore. Psemdel (talk) 11:00, 21 July 2018 (UTC)
Ok --&beer&love (talk) 13:12, 21 July 2018 (UTC)

Item descriptions[edit]

Hi! I have been thinking that I have been creating several articles, most of the time for the first time globally, and while some of the times I fill the "instance of" and "gender" descriptions when it applies, many of these newly created items remain empty. Is there a tool in Wikidata I could use to make this task easier? --Jamez42 (talk) 00:40, 25 June 2018 (UTC)

@User:Jamez42 I use this: create articles or add property add property or descriptions (new for me) add date birth/death
--&beer&love (talk) 09:20, 25 June 2018 (UTC)

Stan Lee still breathing[edit]

Twice you have added a death date for Stan Lee Q181900. He is still alive. [3] I note you are quoting the Italian Wikipedia as your source. I agree they have killed him off but that needs fixing as well. Unfortunately the Italians are currently protesting and blocking their Wikipedia, so your source will stay intact for a few days. I am not sure how you run your updating tool, but could you get it to avoid Stan Lee for a couple of days. Thanks Periglio (talk) 18:01, 3 July 2018 (UTC)

Alexandrine Amalie Auguste Paucker still female[edit]

Please work out why you did and avoid doing it again. It is not useful to mark females as males. --Tagishsimon (talk) 11:39, 7 July 2018 (UTC)

Ditto ... Catharina von Bismarck.
Ditto ... Dora Hasselblatt.
Ditto ... Dorothea Rutherford.
Ditto ... Edith von zur Mühlen.

Can I leave you to go through the rest of this set? I presume you're good with cleaning up your own mess? thx. --Tagishsimon (talk) 12:06, 7 July 2018 (UTC)

  • Occasionally, it happens that an entire batch of edits goes in the wrong direction. I tend to check them once their are running and, if it goes wrong, fix them. Occasionally, I miss some and fix them once someone else noticed it and was so kind to point it out. Normally, I'd thank them. I'd suggest to deblock &beer&love and enable them to check and fix the batches. @Mahir256, &beer&love: what do you think?
    --- Jura 09:50, 10 July 2018 (UTC)
@Jura1: Ordinarily I’d have no problem doing that, since in other cases the affected user does indicate some remorse or a plan for corrections in whatever venues they can still edit. As a good chunk of this talk page shows, and unless I somehow missed a time period in their edit history in which at least some edits were corrections to some other incident, a lot of people have had their concerns about this user’s edit quality unanswered and unresponded to, and there is certainly no indication of protest or remorse or, really, anything from this user on even this talk page which this user still has the ability to edit under this account (unless, perhaps, this user is also the anonymous Beijinger in the two WD:AN topics mentioning this user). I thus am inclined to keep the block in place unless I receive a response on this talk page, in whatever language this user is most competent in (I suspect that it is not English), expressing remorse and a plan for corrections to each of the incidents on this talk page, including this one, not already addressed. Mahir256 (talk) 11:16, 10 July 2018 (UTC)
fwiw, I'm with Jura in wanting &b&l to be able to edit, and with Mahir256 in wanting &b&l to communicate with us so that trust can be re-established. So, I hope this whole thing turns out well, but the onus is very much on &b&l to acknowlede the importance of communicating and to undertake to respond to and fix any future issues raised. I've cleared up the immediate issue of this thread; all BBLd items now have the correct gender. --Tagishsimon (talk) 11:38, 10 July 2018 (UTC)


I made a charge where I assumed that everyone was male. As I was asked to "Please work out why you did and avoid doing it again." I did a load with proper names to check. It was not loaded full. and I could not finish checking. When I detect an error of this, of another user, I reverse it and correct it, and they thank it.

The question of Stan Lee, I added the date with "" Users deleted the date instead of deprecated it and fix the reference wikipedia. So the addition of the date we did several Users. @ Jura1 fixed "" I myself was notified of other hoaxes, and I select "deprecated", but there are users who delete them. In the conversation they explain it.

--&beer&love (talk) 08:22, 12 July 2018 (UTC)

  • Oddly, some bot accounts didn't get blocked for more than this. I had checked some of the issues I mentioned above and I think &beer&love had fixed some 400 items. Some other issues above are editorial choices which may be worth discussing on users' talk pages, but in general probably not. I agree that some response from &beer&love earlier would have been helpful (in English or Spanish). As for the Lee-question, I think we had sorted it out before the block.
    --- Jura 13:00, 12 July 2018 (UTC)
You were asked, &b&l, in this thread, to fix the wrong genders. 38 hours later, despite you doing all sorts of other edits, you had not a) fixed the issues b) given any indication you intended to fix the issues c) given any acknowledgement of the communication. Much the same pattern the last time I spoke to you: no acknowledgment of the communication, no discussion of the issue. In your explanation, above, you continue to fail to acknowledge the importance of responding to communications, continue to fail to make assurances that you will communicate in the future. It's not a big ask: if someone messages you about problems with your work, message them back & discuss it. Will you do that from now on, please? --Tagishsimon (talk) 16:21, 12 July 2018 (UTC)
The first names are still being loaded:

The same case that Stan Lee: I solved: --&beer&love (talk) 16:33, 12 July 2018 (UTC)

I don't get it. You have been asked, in one way or another, multiple times, to give an assurance that you will respond to issues raised. You do not respond to that question; you do not give that assurance. You instead post self-exculpatory responses the content of which has nothing to do with the issue at hand: the issue in this thread was about you setting gender incorrectly on 25 records and has nothing to do with given names. Again: it's not a big ask: if someone messages you about problems with your work, message them back & discuss it; will you do that from now on, please? --Tagishsimon (talk) 17:12, 12 July 2018 (UTC)
I was looking for the items (Now I know they were 25 items) that I was wrong. The user asked me to solve it. I thought crossing them with the first names was a way of locating them.
The user asked me to find out why I did it and it was my mistake. Then I tried to solve. I will better manage active participation in the debates. --&beer&love (talk) 18:01, 12 July 2018 (UTC)
Gracias, &b&l. That is all we want: that you talk to us when we talk to you. --Tagishsimon (talk) 18:21, 12 July 2018 (UTC)

Cycling races[edit]

Hi &beer&love

Please stop adding "point in time (P585)" for the cycling races, they already have "start time (P580)" and "end time (P582)". The addition destroys the information in the infoboxes in Module:Cycling race. --Hejsa (talk) 00:30, 16 July 2018 (UTC)

Bad merging of different cycling team seasons[edit]

Hello &beer&love

While I was investigating why some Wikipedia articles about bicycle races suddenly didn't worked any more, I found the reason was that you merged two items for different cycling team seasons at July 21. It was Q21011822 (2015 season for Lotto-Soudal women's team) and Q18654923 (2015 season for Lotto-Soudal men's team). I have restored these two items now, but I urge you to be more careful about merging different things in the future. Please also investigate and repair if you have done other similar merges. Best regards, Dipsacus fullonum (talk) 16:25, 28 July 2018 (UTC)

sports season[edit]

Hi, as was already pointed out to you, a sports event is not a sports season. You added sports season wrongly to dozens of items. Would you please go through your edits and remove them again. Thanks. -- HvW (talk) 22:05, 2 August 2018 (UTC)

please an example, to undo the change. --&beer&love (talk) 22:08, 2 August 2018 (UTC)
for example – a single world championship tournament is no sports season, it is part of (P361) the Snooker season 2012/2013 (Q670365), and that is a sports season (Q27020041). -- HvW (talk) 00:37, 3 August 2018 (UTC)
I don't like being ignored. Stop immediately your wrong addition of sports season to events and tournaments like 2017 Skate America (Q30571873) and Q55780053. Also I expect you to start undoing your wrong additions without further delay. This is the last warning. -- HvW (talk) 17:34, 7 August 2018 (UTC)
El item sports season (Q27020041) es subclase (P279) de recurrent event edition (Q27968055) -- Entonces,

2.- ¿en su lugar qué ponemos? por ejemplo recurrent event edition (Q27968055), pero asociado a que propiedad equivalente a P3450 en el caso de sports season (Q27020041). No hay nada especificado en las propiedades P1963.
3.- En el proyecto Wikidata:WikiProject_Sports podemos debatir mejor el uso de este item con alias en inglés: "season of sports competition", "season of sports tournament". Mejor que en una discusión de un usuario particular.

Yo solo edito artículos individuales. Entonces veo si es un torneo o una temporada.
No sé cómo identificas tu los artículos. La mayoría de los items que has cambiado son sobre torneos. Tienes que verificar de alguna manera si se trata realmente de un item sobre una temporada. Si no, entonces lo cambias a "torneo deportivo".
Edición de evento recurrente es otro aspecto. Esto se puede usar adicionalmente por torneos, pero no resuelve el problema de las temporadas. Saludo -- HvW (talk) 21:02, 7 August 2018 (UTC)
sports season (Q27020041) se entiende como una edición (temporada) de un evento deportivo recurrente, entiendose cualquier competición deportiva (torneos, campeonatos, liga...). Mañana replanteo la jerarquía. --&beer&love (talk) 01:33, 8 August 2018 (UTC)

Jerónimo López[edit]

Hola &beer&love: me saltó un aviso de que el artículo Jerónimo López se había conectado a un elemento y en el historial he visto que lo habías conectado tu. Se trata evidentemente de personas distintas, una del siglo XVI y por lo visto autora de un libro de caballerías o algo así, el mío jesuita y del siglo XVII. Yo no controlo Wikidata y me resulta muy difícil manejarme por aquí. He dado a deshacer, pero no sé cómo hacer, no te me enfades. Saludos, --Enrique Cordero (talk) 18:04, 4 September 2018 (UTC)

Debió ser un error, gracias por darte cuenta, y corregirlo. --&beer&love (talk) 20:10, 4 September 2018 (UTC)

Another unsourced death record[edit]

In addition to previous source requests, here is another one: in July you've added death date for Valeri Galaktionov (Q52738115), but there are no sources whatsoever in Russian that support the notion of his death (not to mention its date). Please reveal the source of the information so that it can be verified. --Deinocheirus (talk) 20:23, 5 September 2018 (UTC)

Ayuda con former thoroughfare (Q55097207)[edit]

Hola &beer&love, te molesto para pedirte ayuda en el agregado de todas las entidades de estas categorías:

la instancia de former thoroughfare (Q55097207)?. Me parece que deberían quitársele las instancias de street (Q79007) aunque no estoy totalmente seguro, ya que el término puede estar en algunos casos mal aplicado.--Zeroth (talk) 00:44, 27 September 2018 (UTC)

Son vías no calles.. habría que darle un repaso antes. Yo no quitaria street (Q79007) por que street (Q79007) no es calle "vigente". --&beer&love (talk) 20:46, 27 September 2018 (UTC)

Hola. Has sido advertido numerosas veces de tus ediciones erróneas, pero pareces hacer caso omiso. En Manuelle Franck (Q18201646) has estado añadiendo durante meses que falleció en 2008. La Wikipedia que referencias para dicha propiedad parece estar errónea puesto que la persona no ha fallecido. Este tipo de comportamiento perjudica al proyecto, si continúas comportándote de esta manera tu cuenta será bloqueada. Avisado quedas. Esteban16 (talk) 17:35, 21 April 2019 (UTC)

Not humans[edit]

Quite a lot of items you coded today as humans are not humans; they're murders, or vases, or other stuff. e.g.

and probably another 10 or so. I've fixed them all. Please be a bit more careful with your P31s. thanks. --Tagishsimon (talk) 00:13, 22 April 2019 (UTC)

I see the same thing, anything with a given name in the label (album title, compound given name, double patronymic surname, etc.) is encoded as a human and given properties for sex/gender, etc. It seems this script you're running is way too broad. Moreover, it keeps re-adding after being corrected, see: @Tagishsimon: Moebeus (talk) 12:39, 1 May 2019 (UTC)
That's particularly egregious. &beer&love, we've spoken about this in the past. Please remember there is a very clear expectation that if we engage with you on this talk page, you talk back to us. Please now start talking to us. @Moebeus: --Tagishsimon (talk) 12:46, 1 May 2019 (UTC)

Petscan has two ways of checking that:

  • "Uses items/prop": "Q5" [4] (not fully reliable)
  • "Search": "haswbstatement:P31=Q5" [5] (possibly some timeout issues if not otherwise limited)

Depending on what I'm doing I use one or the other, or combination. Here is one to find people with the given name "John", but without a P735 statement John.

BTW thanks for all the useful statements you are adding. --- Jura 16:23, 1 May 2019 (UTC)

Ok, I am seeing the error. I'm going to study how to minimize error --&beer&love (talk) 16:25, 1 May 2019 (UTC)
I'll try "Search": "haswbstatement:P31=Q5" , It's new for me. --&beer&love (talk) 16:27, 1 May 2019 (UTC)

Strange import[edit]


I see that you imported several birthdate in the 1940s with en.wp as the reference for item linked to kk.wp but *not linked to en.wp*, for instance Q16437619 (corrected). I see several others (like Q20482569, also corrected, I merged it with the correct item), see for a full list of remaining items. Could you take a look?

Hello, I suppressed the image you put on Al-Ruways (boats) because it was not the correct Al-Ruways. This one was in Palestine, the one on the image is a port town in Qatar.

Wrong height values[edit]

You have imported quite of lot of wrong values for height (P2048), e.g. Shelley Olds (Q453445) or Michael Boogerd (Q505783) (all wrong units Millimeter instead of cm or m). Could you please fix this? Steak (talk) 13:27, 11 August 2019 (UTC)

Unsourced (and incorrect) gender edits[edit]

I noticed you're mass adding sex or gender (P21) to people. Not sure what approach you're using, but I assume it's the given name. It's probably better to do it in two steps:

If the name is male given name (Q12308941) or female given name (Q11879590) (and not both)

I noticed Jura1 adding quite a few given name (P735). For the second step we might even have a bot running around. Multichill (talk) 10:32, 20 August 2019 (UTC)

  • On project chat, there was some discussion recently about adding P21 based on P735. There are some pitfalls. I think there are few WikiProjects focusing on P21, maybe they could complete them. --- Jura 17:35, 22 August 2019 (UTC)

Copying transcribed cyrillic names[edit]

Please avoid copying transcribed cyrillic names from one language to another (e.g. from German to Spanish), like you did (twice) here and on a couple of other items. The Spanish transcription of cyrillic script differs from the German one. - Valentina.Anitnelav (talk) 20:49, 25 August 2019 (UTC)

Hi again. Please put a bit more effort in sorting out labels transcribed from cyrillic script. Excluding persons with native language (P103)/writing system (P282)/subclass of (P279)* Cyrillic script (Q8209) would be a first step. - Valentina.Anitnelav (talk)
I am taking the data from astwiki, and not from dewiki. Hopefully discard by Cyrillic alphabet. --&beer&love (talk) 11:26, 31 August 2019 (UTC)
It does not matter from which language you are taking the data - please exclude persons whose latin labels are very likely transcriptions from the cyrillic alphabet. Spanish has it's own transcription system from cyrillic to latin. Native language (Russian, Ukrainian, Belorussion, Kazakh, etc.) and country of citizenship (Soviet Union, Ukraine, Belorussia, etc.) are good indicators if latin labels are very likely transcriptions. Today I had to undo ca. 250 edits by you on my watchlist, in additions to those I did last week, some of them for the third time (to have some examples: [6], [7], [8]). Those were edits one could have easily avoided. So just please clean your batch from those likely false labels, before you rerun it again. Thank you and regards - Valentina.Anitnelav (talk) 17:00, 31 August 2019 (UTC)
Is there a tool to transcribe from Cyrillic to Spanish? To overwrite the batches. --&beer&love (talk) 20:18, 31 August 2019 (UTC)
I'm not familiar with the Spanish transcription system and how reliably it can be applied with automatic methods. There are also differences in the transcription from different cyrillic alphabets (e.g. the Russian alphabet vs. the Ukrainian one) - at least this is the case in English and German -, so the origin/primary language of a person has to be considered, too. Probably that should be discussed with somebody who is more acquainted. Until then I think it suffices to just leave those labels empty. - Valentina.Anitnelav (talk) 10:26, 1 September 2019 (UTC)
Then we will leave the labels empty. But in a few weeks, we can transfer the problems that have arisen to meet someone more experienced if we can complete labels with transcribed names. --&beer&love (talk) 12:34, 1 September 2019 (UTC)

Buenas. Sobre esta edición, ¿me puedes decir a qué fundación se refiere en una persona? Gracias y un saludo. --Vanbasten 23 (talk) 08:25, 7 October 2019 (UTC)

Por favor, edita más relajadamente y con más cuidado. Estás añadiendo sucedido y precedido por pero no estás comprobando que te dan errores como aquí. No se deben poner así sino dentro de la temporada deportiva. Si tienes dudas me dices. Un saludo. --Vanbasten 23 (talk) 12:53, 7 October 2019 (UTC) PD: Por favor, para, que llevas 20 minutos haciendo las ediciones que te estoy diciendo que están mal.
Te repito también lo mismo que el primer mensaje esto no tiene sentido en seres humanos. --Vanbasten 23 (talk) 12:56, 7 October 2019 (UTC)
He parado las consultas de temporada deportiva, y de P571, tengo pendiente borrar P571 en humanos, pero no me funciona quitar justamente esta propiedad. Está comentado en la ayuda de quickstatements.
La exportación del error viene de unos datos erróneos en la plantilla de eswiki.Saco una consulta, y cuando me funcione quickstatements reviso y corrigo los posibles errores --&beer&love (talk) 14:02, 7 October 2019 (UTC)
Perfecto. El problema con temporada deportiva es que deben meterse los valores sucedido y precidido dentro de ella y no fuera, por eso dice que no pueden ponerse ambos juntos, solo sería incluirlo dentro en vez de fuera, pero si se hace bien es un dato muy útil que debe añadirse, gracias. Un saludo. --Vanbasten 23 (talk) 15:30, 7 October 2019 (UTC)
Ya estabas haciendo bien las ediciones, como en este artículo. Ahora, como no tienes en algunos elementos el P3450 (temporada deportiva de), en vez de añadirlo, lo estás poniendo como hacías anteriormente. Si se da ese caso se debe añadir el P3450 y debajo suyo el sucedido y precedido por como ya estabas haciendo, es que sino estás generando más trabajo para el siguiente que quiera hacerlo bien. --Vanbasten 23 (talk) 17:50, 8 October 2019 (UTC)
Estoy haciendo pruebas de carga, pero en las tools donde detecta P31 y P3450, no carga de plantillas. O al reves. ¿Qué tool usas para cargar desde plantilla dentro de la propiedad P3450?

La unica opcion que he encontrado es cargarla fuera de P3450 y que DeltaBot lo mueva, o con una query (eliminarlas y añadirlas): son más pasos, pero menos tiempo. --&beer&love (talk) 18:04, 8 October 2019 (UTC)

La única opción no puede ser nunca hacer dos ediciones (y haciendo trabajar a un bot) en vez de una cuando es perfectamente factible. Estás generando el doble de trabajo. Lo estabas haciendo bien hasta que ahora te has puesto a ponerlas en masa sabiendo que están mal. ¿Que tienen que estar otros usuarios solucionando lo que vas haciendo mal? Por favor, si te estoy diciendo lo que está mal, no sigas haciéndolo mal. Y si sigues respondiendo en tu discusión sin hacerme un ping no veré tus mensajes nunca... --Vanbasten 23 (talk) 20:31, 8 October 2019 (UTC) PD: Y además, se podría llegar a algún acuerdo, pero es que te escribo, tomas tu decisión y sigues haciendo ediciones sin esperar a que te diga algo. Eso no es trabajar en equipo, ni consenso ni nada, es hacer lo que quieres cada vez.
@Vanbasten 23:, he parado las consultas... era para probar a subirlas en vez del bot. ¿Es mejor hablar en el proyecto donde estamos, en vez de aqui... para llegar a ver como se puede completar la información en wikidata - y que quede anotado.¿ --&beer&love (talk) 20:39, 8 October 2019 (UTC)
