Many apologies, it was a mistake from my part. I didn't notice the discussion about not adding no value for living persons. Actually I was following the logic of this module. Anyway, I will undo my edits as soon as possible. Thanks,

Widar tool for label-a-thon instructions need

Info-farmer (talkcontribs)

Few contributors are using Widar tool. Am i correct? Is there any guiding page for it?

Bodhisattwa (talkcontribs)

There are many tools connected to Widar? Which one are you talking about?

Info-farmer (talkcontribs)

How to add a description like this using a tool for a Tamil category. eg https://ta.wikipedia.org/s/5w7u The category contains freedom fighters from TamilNadu. How to add the description to all the headings in the category?

Bodhisattwa (talkcontribs)

The best way to get this the list of pages from Tamil Wikipedia is by using Petscan. The manual on how to use this is in this meta page. After you get the list in csv format, you can then add labels, descriptions, statements etc with Quickstatements tool. The manual of using this tool is here.

Info-farmer (talkcontribs)

My first edit by Quickstatements tool. I will contribute from tomorrow. Bye!

Hi, @VIGNERON: the labels were in Latin script, but for Bengali, we use Bengali script, for Tibetan, we use Tibetan script and for Hindi, we use Devanagari script. We don't use Latin script in these languages.

VIGNERON (talkcontribs)

Of course, it's in Latin script, the name is in Latin script. What label would you put then?

Bodhisattwa (talkcontribs)

@VIGNERON:, as I said, Bengali language dont use Latin script. The Bengali transliteration would be পেডেন এন টেওয়েলেড.

Adaptations are not editions {{P|747}}. There is no reverse property for adaptations, and this is on purpose. If the work is identified as an adaptation, this is all that is needed.

দয়া করে ও কষ্ট করে আইটেমগুলি তৈরি করার সময় বাংলা বিবরণ যোগ করার অনুরোধ করছি। দেখ Q33291320 (নমুনা) তৈরি করেছ কিন্তু বাংলা বিবরণ দেওনি অথচ ইংরেজি বিবরণ দিয়েছ। WE-Framework gadget দিয়ে কিন্তু খুব সহজেই বাংলা বিবরণ যোগ করা যেত :(

Marcus Aureliuser Atmachinta (Q26937308)

Namaste Bodhisattwa!

I have found that there is a Bengali translation of Marcus Aurelius available in Wikisources (https://bn.wikisource.org/wiki/মার্কাস্‌ অরিলিয়সের আত্মচিন্তা) and I wanted to add the information about it to the Marcus Aurelius Meditations (https://en.wikisource.org/wiki/Meditations) (Q1152283) where there are links to various other national translations, and where some mintes earlier I have successfully added the Polish translation - the Bengali users and the other language users might profit on this, But I wasn't able to as I have received the message: "The link bnwikisource:মার্কাস্‌ অরিলিয়সের আত্মচিন্তা is already used by item Q26937308. You may remove it from Q26937308 if it does not belong there or merge the items if they are about the exact same topic." So I wanted to merge them. As per Help:Merge I should merge the newer (higher number) and having less items object to the older one, having more links (i.e. I should merge the Bengali Q26937308 to the English/Greek/French/Hebrew/Esperanto/Polish Q1152283) - I have tried but I couldn't do it, maybe I heve been doing something wrong, but it seems to me too complicated. Maybe you know how to do it? Please, do it. ~~~~

Dear Bodhisattwa,

maybe you are right but in that case all the books in various languages linked together under Marcus Aurelius Meditations (Q1152283) are linked there erroneously, as each of them is a separate translation of the Greek text, made by a separate author, a separate book with separate indexes and other things - so they should be split apart. Which of course would be a great loss for a scholar working on Meditations and trying to compare different exiting versions in various languages. Even comparing indexes leads to a better understanding, but with what you say this should not take place. That's not how I understand instructions given under Wikidata help for merging, butt I admit I might be wrong. Sadly so.

NoychoH (talkcontribs)

And to tell you the truth, I do not understand what you have already done, or how you have already added it properly there. I have tried to see, but I can't see. Never mind, dont't worry, I do not need to understand everything.
