version, edition, or translation (Q3331189) important modifications[edit]

Hello, Was there a discussion/consensus before please ? --Hsarrazin (talk) 12:59, 1 April 2018 (UTC)

@Hsarrazin: Hi, I've left a comment on the talk page with a pointer to the reflections behind the renaming, including links to two earlier exchanges with User:VIGNERON. At the time the members of the WikiProject Books had been notified of the discussion. Given the absence of participation of other community members, I wouldn't exactly call it a community consensus. The change I introduced however just reflects the earlier policy of using <edition> as an entity covering both frbr:Expression and frbr:Manifestation and makes this policy explicit. See Vigneron's comments in this regard. If you have any objections or questions regarding the change, I would suggest that we take that discussion to the talk page of the item or to the talk page of the WikiProject Books. --Beat Estermann (talk) 17:37, 1 April 2018 (UTC)
in fact, I find it more explicit. I was only very surprised to see nothing about it on the Books wikiproject, and could not find other discussion about it, but it certainly is clearer about frbr structure :) --Hsarrazin (talk) 17:42, 1 April 2018 (UTC)

Possible WikiProject for year discussion[edit]

I have inquired at Wikidata talk:WikiProject Calendar Dates#Expand to cover year items? to see if that project would like to be a more enduring place to discuss and document the year-related discussions currently going on at Wikidata:Project chat. Since you have participated, I wanted to invite you to the discussion. Perhaps we shouldn't advertise the WikiProject in Project chat until a consensus emerges about whether the WikiProject wants to take on years or not. Jc3s5h (talk) 21:07, 30 April 2018 (UTC)

Teatro alla Scala - Ingest of production data[edit]

Hello! I answer here to the question you asked me in my discussion page. I am using various sources: wikipedia articles, La Scala programmes and (mostly) the following books: Q52277762, Carlo Gatti, Il teatro alla Scala nella storia e nell'arte, 1778-1963 and Giampiero Tintori, La Scala 67-92. Spettacoli, personaggi, cronologia, opere, balletti e concerti. I spotted this database and I'm using it to check the information provided by Q52296182 in his book, since, as far as I understood it, the copyright of the database is not compatible with wikidata's and therefore data cannot be directly imported here. I am using La Scala website for the productions of the last years. Αππο (talk) 19:12, 15 May 2018 (UTC)


Hallo Beat Estermann,
When you merge items, you may want to use the merge.js gadget from help page about merging. It helps with merging, gives the option to always keep the lower number (which is older, so preferable in most cases) and removes the need to file a request on Wikidata:Requests for deletions.

characters of Wikipedia:WikiProject Opera/Article styles and formats (Q16323080)[edit]

Hello Beat Estermann, I found some characters who are present in Wikipedia:WikiProject Opera/Article styles and formats (Q16323080) (like Q55012377). Am I right that these are a mistake and can be deleted? Thank you for your work - Valentina.Anitnelav (talk) 19:53, 18 July 2018 (UTC)

Dear @Valentina.Anitnelav: Thanks for pointing this out. These characters should not have imported. I've requested their deletion. --Beat Estermann (talk) 08:33, 19 July 2018 (UTC)

Property proposal[edit]

Dear Beat, I just want to draw your attention to my property proposal for a dramaturge. As you are/where active in uploading performing arts data, I wanted to ask your support for this proposal. Beireke1 (talk) 21:25, 30 October 2018 (UTC)
