Restoring items[edit]

Are your actions being discussed somewhere? I'd like to know. Thanks in advance, --Ricordisamoa 08:34, 30 May 2015 (UTC)

The individual actions or the group of actions? I guess the main discussion I would point you to would be Wikidata:Requests_for_comment/Redirect_vs._deletion. To avoid repeating myself I will also link you to this post. I have stopped restoring items for now so that we can discuss the actions! ·addshore· talk to me! 08:50, 30 May 2015 (UTC)
If you have no objections to this I will continue when I next find the time! ·addshore· talk to me! 20:46, 31 May 2015 (UTC)
I don't see the benefit in restoring items that were deleted way before the aforementioned policy was established, since it's extremely unlikely that someone relied upon them as permanent identifiers. --Ricordisamoa 22:23, 3 June 2015 (UTC)
It's very difficult to say for sure that nobody used them though, because there's nothing tracking usage by external projects. For example, I found around 1000 links from MusicBrainz to Wikidata which were broken, the majority of which were just things which were merged and then deleted before that policy was introduced and most of them have now been fixed by addshore. It might not be of any benefit to you, but if someone else is willing to do it (which addshore clearly is), is there a reason not to do it? - Nikki (talk) 23:03, 3 June 2015 (UTC)
Indeed, there is no reason not to do it. We gain more by having the redirects in place rather than having deleted items. ·addshore· talk to me! 23:19, 3 June 2015 (UTC)

Hi Addshore, you wrote in :

  • "We have an accurate idea of how many items have actually been deleted due to not being notable / being test items."

Do you have stats about "how many items have actually been deleted due to not being notable / being test items"? This would be quite interesting. Does wikidata have a workflow to delete non-notable items that were deleted from Wikipedias? --Atlasowa (talk) 16:46, 16 September 2015 (UTC)

Well, I say stats... The number of items deleted due to not being notable / being test items are the current number of deleted items - 6000. If you want some more detailed stats I can probably break it down for you a bit more based on edit summaries etc. The only workflow is Wikidata:RFD ·addshore· talk to me! 17:10, 16 September 2015 (UTC)
