Please test generation of qal values

Mary Mark Ockerbloom (talkcontribs)

I have been trying to generate quickstatements from an excel containing the following test: (Len is not actually needed but it is useful in keeping track which entity what I'm working on.) The qal values seem to be ignored. If I copy these lines to a text file and hand edit to add the commas and quotes they work fine in quickstatements. Can you test them to see what is (not) happening? ~~~~

qid Len P50 qal1932 qal1545
Q106034528 James H. Brown President,1996-1997 Q106035867 Brian A. Maurer 1

Then following RESULT is generated after I hit "Upload" at

Q106034528	P50	Q106035867		P1932	"Brian A. Maurer"	P1545	"1"

Instead of qal's, I now see P's for 1932 and 1545, which won't process properly if I "Copy to Quickstatements".

Hello, I'm afraid I need help again. Everything works except the last part of this statement, which should be adding a reference URL for the qualifier. The reference URL is ignored. You can see a correct example of what I'm trying to get at Q106519661 Thank you @Mary Mark Ockerbloom

Hello, as stated in the HOWTO section, the sources columns must be right after the qid one.

Mary Mark Ockerbloom (talkcontribs)

Ah, thank you, I was able to get it to work with that change.

Hi I Hope you're doing good. While creating a new item "Purav Jha" a very known India's most popular actor.

You can also search "Purav Jha" even on youtube he's very known Actor. Please unblock the item so i can create the new item by the name of Purva Jha. As the action is constructive, Please it's an humble request.

Thank You

Ash Crow (talkcontribs)

If there is a specific filter forbidding people to create this entry, there must be a reason. Furthermore, I see that this "famous actor" is not in IMDb.

Open question about your admin action

Hi Ash Crow,

Some time ago, you deleted a series of pages following the discussion at . The deletion didn't reflect the observations made by @Peter James:, there. You did leave a short note on French project chat, but didn't provide any provide anything to support your point of view (oddly not expressed in the deletion discussion you closed) nor answer any follow up questions. Can you provide this now or undelete the pages if you conclude that finally it wasn't appropriate. If you prefer, I can bring this up on project chat instead.

Ash Crow (talkcontribs)


I thought all of Wikidata was under CC-0 but apparently this does not apply to the Module and Template namespaces, so these pages can be re-imported. @VIGNERON:'s original point still stands, though: using the Import tools would be better than undeleting the pages. I may have some time next week to look at it but can you please explain the usecase for these Wikipedia-centric templates on Wikidata, especially considering the fact you were the one who asked for their deletion in the first place?

Jura1 (talkcontribs)

Thanks for looking into this. I think we should go with the consensus opinion from the deletion discussion. If you feel this needs further discussion, please re-open it. Import tools might not work as the names from frwiki collide with other modules in use here.

Ash Crow (talkcontribs)

One person asking for deletion (yourself) and another one saying it's fine is hardly any kind of consensus.

It's imported, or restored for the two pages where the import failed.

Hi. I was trying to fix a link on the data set about Elliot Page but I realized that it was protected due to a recent edit warring. I just wanted to mention that following the recent events, the page on the South Azerbaijani Wikipedia has been moved from to , yet for some reason the redirect page is linked to the other pages rather than the main article. I'll be glad if you fix it. Thanks.

Savez vous pourquoi mon compte est indéfiniment bloqué dans la Wikipédia francophone ?

Et cela correspond à quels diff et à quelles règles ?

Visite fortuitement prolongée (talkcontribs)

Pas de réponse. C'est juste un administrateur qui s'est amusé à bloquer indéfiniment une contributrice ?

Je ne suis pas ici pour demander un déblocage de mon compte dans Wikipédia fr.

Hi @RMaung (WMF):, you really should fix the greetings in your message, it's been twice now.

RMaung (WMF) (talkcontribs)

Hi @Ash Crow, I'll make sure you don't receive any further reminders about the survey. It looks like the massmessage tool is having some issues with posting on wikidata talk pages. I appreciate your patience!

Ash Crow (talkcontribs)

No problem. It's a known bug with Flow talk pages, so it's not specific to Wikidata. I don't know if there is a workaround (@Trizek (WMF):, any idea?)

Trizek (WMF) (talkcontribs)

{{PAGENAME}} displays the page name, literally. It is a known issue.

Hi, I created a new page for collecting sites that could be added to Mix'n'match and I plan to expand it with the ones that already have scrapers by category. Feel free to expand, use for property creation. Best, -Adam Harangozó (talk) 17:09, 17 November 2019 (UTC)

Dear Mr.,

We are organizing a French-speaking session of WikiCite 2020 online on 27 October 2020 from 15:00 to 19:00 UTC. Further information on the preliminary program can be found at We are still finding a speaker that can introduce Wikidata and the bibliographic metadata it currently involves to the session audience. I ask if you can present Wikidata during the session.

Yours Sincerely,

Houcemeddine Turki

Ash Crow (talkcontribs)


Sorry, this is a weekday, so I will be at work.

Best regards, Ash.
