Welcome to Wikidata, Bill william compton!

Wikidata is a free knowledge base that you can edit! It can be read and edited by humans and machines alike and you can go to any item page now and add to this ever-growing database!

Need some help getting started? Here are some pages you can familarise yourself with:

If you have any questions, please ask me on my talk page. If you want to try out editing, you can use the sandbox to try. Once again, welcome, and I hope you quickly feel comfortable here, and become an active editor for Wikidata.

Best regards, --Ajraddatz (talk) 14:14, 19 November 2012 (UTC)

Hindi page[edit]

Please have a look here. Also invite others please. --Rsrikanth05 (talk) 17:58, 19 December 2012 (UTC)

If you're interested[edit]

I made {{Rfd group}} a while back for situations where a bunch of items need to be deleted for the same reason; there's a button to use it at the top of the RFD page. If you prefer to do it the way you've been doing, that's fine, of course, and keep up the good work! But I thought I'd let you know about that, since some people find it more convenient. — PinkAmpers&(Je vous invite à me parler) 02:55, 4 March 2013 (UTC)

Thanks for the suggestion, but I don't think I'll be using it much. I patrol new pages and open many tabs. I don't move on to next item before reviewing the current one. So, there's no way for me to know whether I'll be clicking on [Mark this page as patrolled] or Request deletion.--Bill william compton (talk) 15:59, 4 March 2013 (UTC)

Sponge[edit]

Hi. Why did you change the label "sponge" to "Sponge"? It's not a proper noun. If in doubt, see Help:Labels. - Soulkeeper (talk) 18:14, 4 March 2013 (UTC)

I was in impression that titling is done alike Wikipedia. Thanks for the clarification!--18:21, 4 March 2013 (UTC)

Q2419334[edit]

Hi Bill :)

Please double-check before reverting good edits: most IPs are good contributors ;-)

Thanks for all your work on Wikidata, best regards — Arkanosis 22:21, 6 March 2013 (UTC)

I usually do. It was an honest mistake. Je m'en souviendrais la prochaine fois.--Bill william compton (talk) 00:27, 7 March 2013 (UTC)

Q4648296[edit]

This must be linked to Q6659106. How to do it? --Drajay1976 (talk) 18:24, 10 March 2013 (UTC)

I've merged Q6659106 with Q4648296. There cannot be two items for a same subject. Cheers.--Bill william compton (talk) 18:32, 10 March 2013 (UTC)

Question[edit]

For example Rated R (Rihanna album) article has a link to Armenian article (Հայերեն), however the Armenian article does not have any interwikis. How can we enable wikidata interwikis on that Armenian article?

Thanks, -Սահակ (talk) 02:53, 13 March 2013 (UTC)

✓ Done. Many times a link to Wikidata appears if you click on 'edit'. If it does, then save the artcile without doing anything; link to Wikidata shall be enabled.--Bill william compton (talk) 04:54, 13 March 2013 (UTC)


-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-==---
Hello Bill..

Question from a new user... Regarding duplicate data..

RDF, and object oriented programming languages in general, have the concept of referring to an object, so many entities can share the same data.

But as I see it in Wikidata, you have an entity (ie: United States of America), and it has a list of States. Currently, it seems that data is part and parcel of that entity. So, if you have another entity that needs a list of States, it has to have its own.

It seems the latter is how Wikidata works, yes? If so, why? Wouldn't the RDF way be better?

(Not that you had any say in the matter, I'd just like your opinion..)

Thank you in advance,

Haxwell (talk) 19:58, 10 October 2013 (UTC)

Here's your quick overview of what has been happening around Wikidata over the last week.
    • Development
    • Design improvements to the SetClaim API module
    • More work on implementing the simple inclusion syntax that will be 1 way to access Wikidata data on Wikipedia
    • More work on Lua (the second way to access Wikidata data on Wikipedia)
    • Added parser page property to hold entity id in client. This fixes:
      • bugzilla:45037 - don’t show edit link if noexternallanglinks has suppressed all Wikidata links
      • bugzilla:44536 - have the edit link go directly to the Q### pages, instead of Special:ItemByTitle which shall make the link be more reliable and work for all namespaces
    • Selenium tests for deleted-property-handling
    • Selenium tests for multiline references
    • Selenium tests for add-sitelinks-from-client
    • Selenium tests for Entity-Selector-as-Searchbox
    • Selenium tests for language-table
    • Implemented in-process caching for entities
    • Lua support to access the repo data and implement getEntity (so you can use stuff like entity = mw.wikibase.getEntity("Q1459") in Lua modules)
    • rebuildTermSearchKey is now ready for production (this still needs to be run but once done it will make search case-insensitive)
    • Improved error reports from the API
    • Ground work for better edit summaries from the API
    • Added a table of content to item pages
    • Added debug functionality to be able to investigate why it takes longer than it should for Wikidata changes to show up on recent changes and watchlists on Wikipedia
    • Finished implementation of References-UI
    • Implemented GUID generator in JavaScript
    • Worked on fixing a bug related to deleted properties where the UI would display wrong information

Wikidata weekly summary #50[edit]

Wikidata-logo-en.svg
Here's your quick overview of what has been happening around Wikidata over the last week.
  • Development
    • Rolled out new code on wikidata.org. The new stuff you probably care about is:
      • Improved references. They can now have multiple lines. This should make references much more useful. You can now have one reference with for example values for each of the properties "book", "author", "page" to describe one source.
      • Fixed the prev/next links in diff view (bugzilla:45821)
      • d:Special:EntitiesWithoutLabel now lets you filter by language and entity type
    • Widget to add language links on the Wikipedias directly: added setting to enable/disable it per wiki and made it available for logged-in users only
    • Widget to add language links on the Wikipedias directly: improved layout / size
    • Made it so that the “edit links” link on Wikipedia is also shown when the corresponding item only has a link to this one language and no other languages
    • Submitted improved Apache config patch to make wikidata.org always redirect to www.wikidata.org, which is awaiting code review and deployment.
    • Improved the script that is responsible for taking Wikidata changes to the Wikipedias
    • Added a few ways to better debug the script responsible for taking Wikidata changes to the Wikipedias. This should help with investigating why some changes take way to long to show up on the Wikipedias.
    • Started work on automatically adding edited items to the user’s watchlist (according to preferences)
    • Finished script for rebuilding search keys, so we can finally get case insensitive matches in a lot of places
    • Support for multi-line references in diff view
    • Selenium tests for inclusion syntax
    • Improved parser function (that will be used to access Wikidata data on the Wikipedias) to accept property ID or label
    • Increased isolation of data model component to increase clarity and visibility of bad dependencies
    • Worked on schema access in the SQLStore (of the query component)
  • Discussions/Press
  • Events
    • 3rd Media Web Symposium 2013
    • Wikidata trifft Archäologie
    • SMWCon Spring NYC
  • Other Noteworthy Stuff
  • Did you know?
    • When you edit a statement there is a little wheel in front of the text field. This lets you choose between “custom value”, “unknown value” and “no value”. “No value” means that we know that the given property has no value, e.g. Elizabeth I of England had no spouse. “Unknown value” means that the property has a value, but it is unknown which one -- e.g. Pope Linus most certainly had a year of birth, but it is unknown to us.

Wikidata weekly summary #51[edit]

Wikidata-logo-en.svg
Here's your quick overview of what has been happening around Wikidata over the last week.
  • Development
    • The first 11 Wikipedias can now include data from Wikidata in their articles (If you want to see it in action see the infobox at it:Torino)
    • Worked on automatic summaries for statements
    • Worked on making properties accessible from the client using their label so you can use {{#property:executive director}} instead of {{#property:p169}} for example
    • Made qualifiers ready for the next deployment (Please test. See details further down.)
    • Selenium tests for qualifiers
    • Fixed some issues related to QUnit testing
    • Worked on improved handling and code design of multiple snak lists in the UI (qualifiers, references)
  • Discussions/Press
  • Events
    • Newline 2013
  • Other Noteworthy Stuff
    • We’re currently carefully monitoring performance after the deployment of phase 2 on the first 11 Wikipedias. There seem to be a few small issues. As soon as they are resolved we'll deploy on English Wikipedia. All other Wikipedias are planned to follow very soon after that.
    • Bye and a big thank you to Anja, Silke, Jens and John who are leaving the development team at the end of the month and will work on other cool things. You’ll be missed!
    • Ever had any doubt about the possibilities of Wikidata? Talk to Wiri!
    • We worked on reducing the time it takes for Wikidata edits to show up in the Wikipedias and made some progress. Daniel posted an analysis
    • We started running a script on the database in order to make search on Wikidata case-insensitive. This should be finished in a few days and then search should be more useful.
    • In addition to the above we have rolled out a new search box that suggests items. This should also make finding things on Wikidata a lot easier for you.
    • We’re making some progress with Internet Explorer 8 support but there are a lot of issues with it (some outside our control). It’s unclear at the moment how much we can improve it still without spending an unjustified amount of time on it. You can follow the progress at bugzilla:44228
    • Edits are now auto-confirmed for users with more than 50 edits and account age 4 days: bugzilla:46461
    • Do you need old-style interwiki links for a sister project for example? This is for you
    • The Wikimedia Foundation applied as a mentoring organisation for Google Summer of Code again. We have proposed some Wikidata projects for students to take up if the Foundation is accepted again. At least 2 other organisations that applied also propose Wikidata ideas. More details on that once we know which organisations are accepted.
    • Denny hacked together a tree of life based on data from Wikidata
    • Wikidata was added to wikipulse
    • A template to retrieve data from Wikidata if no local value is set
  • Did you know?
  • Open Tasks for You
    • See note at the end of this weekly summary
    • Help test qualifiers (m:Wikidata/Notes/Data model primer#Qualifiers - see also example statements there) on the test wiki so we can roll it out with the next release
    • Did you file a bug report for Wikidata or did someone else do it for you? Please take a minute to check if it is still valid. (Thanks for filing it btw!)
    • Add some missing descriptions to those items with the same label?
    • Hack on one of these

Could I have 2 mins of your time? As I’ll be working on some other projects for Wikimedia Germany as well from now on the time I can spend on Wikidata will be reduced. This means I’ll have to figure out what is useful to spend time on. If you’re reading this could you let me know for example on this discussion page? Also if you have ideas how to improve the weekly summaries please post them. --Lydia Pintscher (WMDE) (talk)

Wikidata hyperlinks[edit]

Hi Bill william compton. The Danish Wikipedia has an article called da:F-35 Lightning II covering both the "Joint Strike Fighter program" and "Lockheed Martin F-35 Lightning II". Is it possible to hyperlink in Wikidata? If someone looks at the English en:Joint Strike Fighter program, clicks "Edit links", lands on d:Joint Strike Fighter program without finding a Danish Interwiki, it could be useful. A kind of notice that the Danish article covering "Joint Strike Fighter" is found at d:Lockheed Martin F-35 Lightning II. --Necessary Evil (talk) 10:45, 3 April 2013 (UTC)

It's impossible to link two different items on Wikidata. What is the major subject of F-35 Lightning II article? If it is Lockheed Martin F-35 Lightning II, then the article should only be linked with it.--Bill william compton (talk) 13:53, 3 April 2013 (UTC)
It could be useful if d:Squadron (disambiguation) had links to d:Squadron (army), d:Squadron (naval) and d:Squadron (aviation). It worked in the 'Summary' text [4] --Necessary Evil (talk) 00:25, 8 April 2013 (UTC)

    • There is now a page showing the current lag for changes propagating to the Wikipedias so they can show up in watchlists and recent changes for example. This should ideally be in the range of a few minutes. Right now it is higher because of some abnormally high bot activity but decreasing. Should be down to a few minutes soon.
    • There’s now a badge you can add to Wikipedia articles to indicate there is data about it on Wikidata

Wikidata weekly summary #53[edit]

Wikidata-logo-en.svg
Here's your quick overview of what has been happening around Wikidata over the last week.
  • Development
    • Got some external professional review of our code and architecture and started working on their feedback
    • Worked on reducing the dispatch lag (the time it takes for changes on Wikidata to be sent to the Wikipedias for display in watchlist, recent changes and to purge affected pages)
    • Worked on using Redis for job queue to improve the lag situation even further
    • Created new Wikibase Query extension for phase 3 functionality

  • Events/Press
    • right now: GLAM-WIKI 2013
  • Discussions
  • Other Noteworthy Stuff
    • Deployment of phase 2 on the remaining Wikipedias was delayed because of a high lag of changes being propagated to the Wikipedias. The lag has been reduced considerably now and is going down even more. The new date for deployment will not be next week because there are other large changes on Wikimedia infrastructure scheduled that we do not want to interfere with. It will hopefully happen very soon after that though.
    • Next code update on wikidata.org is planned for Wednesday. This should include qualifiers and bugfixes.
    • There will probably be a short outage/read-only for wikidata.org on Tuesday (database is being switched to MariaDB)
    • If you're a student and interested in coding on Wikidata consider applying for Google Summer of Code.
    • There is a new user right: property creators
    • There is now a page to request deletion of a property
    • We now have Bureaucrats
    • Reasonator was improved and extended (1 2)
  • Open Tasks for You

Got one for you[edit]

Hey Bill. Mind checking out Talk:Q3938? Given the nature of the item and a shaky Google translation it looks unrelated to me, but, as I said, the translation was shaky, so I'd appreciate if you could take a look. I'll be in and out of cyberspace the next day or so, so no "finders keepers" on this one; feel free to delete it yourself if it's indeed a test page. — PinkAmpers&(Je vous invite à me parler) 05:34, 15 April 2013 (UTC)

Wrong item links[edit]

Hi Bill. I'm just going through the list of items linking to the disambiguation page Male (Q360210). I came across several items where you have linked this instead of male (Q6581097) (e.g. Harry Fidler (Q15131843), Y. Radhakrishnamurthy (Q15132653), Harry Hosier (Q15131840)). Such mistakes can happen, and in this case it's not tragic at all, as it's easy to fix and that task I'm doing has to be done anyway (because it's a common type of vandalism to replace someone's sex). However, if you're mixing up items here, you may do so elsewhere, too, and maybe those other cases are not that obvious. So I'd like to remind you to check whether you are linking the right item, in order not to create junk data. That said, I want to thank you for your work for Wikidata, and wish you a nice day. --YMS (talk) 13:01, 5 December 2013 (UTC)

Hi YMS, the problem is that many times drop-down list selects an item so quickly that I don't get a chance to select the right one. However, it happens very rarely. I always give my utmost attention when I link the items, and am kind of surprised that I've done something like that. Thanks for your message, I'll be more careful in future. — Bill william comptonTalk 10:20, 7 December 2013 (UTC)
