MediaWiki message delivery (talkcontribs)

Hi Vkue6s4fm3rlnxt5,

CIS-A2K is planning to invest some resources from May-June 2020 to create community movement resource (CMR) materials in English and different Indic languages for Wikidata in the form of tutorials, handbooks, infographics, videos, animations etc. The aim of this initiative is to build a pool of resource materials for Wikidata eventually, which will serve as ready-made handy references for new as well as experienced users. You are requested to fill up this form, so that we can understand your needs on different topics of Wikidata. You are also very welcome to actively participate in the process and help us build the CMR with your different areas of expertise.

Victoria Memorial and other Museums of India

Nice import! I created Wikidata:WikiProject sum of all paintings/Collection/Victoria Memorial. Things you could do to improve it:

  • Also include the retrieved date in the reference
  • Add a description in the form "painting by <name>". This will also trigger my bots to try to find the creator
  • Add described at URL (P973) to all the paintings

I hope you will be importing more collections from http://museumsofindia.gov.in/repository/home . I see you already expanded Wikidata:WikiProject sum of all paintings/Location/India! If you need any help or advice, just let me know.

Bodhisattwa (talkcontribs)

Thanks for the collection page.

Regarding described at URL (P973), I wanted to avoid duplication as I am waiting for this external identifier to be approved. This will provide the same url. Anyway, I will add them.

Regarding description, I will add them some time later, as it requires some more cleanup in the data sheet.

Actually, they are adding more and more contents. Thats why the numbers are different. Anyway, not all are paintings, some are engravings or lithographs that were also categorized as painting in the website.

Ah, I see, one big happy pile....

Wikidata:Administrators' noticeboard report

Adamant1 (talkcontribs)

Hello. I'm just letting you know that I reported you to Wikidata:Administrators' noticeboard for harassment and intimidation, due to you lying and getting me blocked in order to kill the AfD. I'd appreciate it if you participated in the discussion. --~~~~

Bodhisattwa (talkcontribs)

Wow! Thank you! What can I say? I didn't lie to anyone and didn't get you blocked. I did not have any intention to derail the Afd. I was simply giving reasons. I even stopped participating in the discussion after you said me to not "repeat" things and called my reasons worthless.

Adamant1 (talkcontribs)

That's all well and good except Mahir256 said on my talk page that you sent him private messages saying that I sent you and Atudu threatening messages and that's why I was blocked. Which I never did. So, I'm just going off of what he said. If you didn't contact him privately or lie about me threatening you, like he's saying you did, then it needs to be worked out with him. All I know is that either he is lying about it or you are, and it led to me being blocked. Honestly, I don't really care who lied but it needs to worked out either way and there should be consequences for whoever it was. I don't take accusations that I threatened people lightly. Especially when one of the people is a woman and it leads to me being blocked. It is clear though that there was a concerted effort behind the scenes between the three of you that led to me being setup so the AfD would be killed. If your not responsible for it fine, but you at least participated in it. Otherwise, you should figure out what the actual facts are and post them on the administrator board, because like I said I'm just going off of what Mahir256 said happened and it's not on me if he miss represented things. So, whatever your side of it is feel free to post it on the admin board. I'm not responsible for this or that you and your friends can't get your stories straight though.

Bodhisattwa (talkcontribs)

What I have understood from your talk page, Mahir256 talked about the way you talked in the RfD, not in any private message. He never said that you were sending threatening messages, if I understand correctly. Anyway, I am replying at the Administrator's noticeboard.

Adamant1 (talkcontribs)

To quote Mahir256 directly from my talk page "The user to whom you were responding (as well as the item creator whom you named in the original request) asked me off-wiki to take a look at it"

and also "later, generally fearful, comments to me off-wiki about your messaging by those I noted at the start of this response suggested to me intimidating behavior, which has led to the block from which you have arisen (and please do not try to tell me that they were not scared)."

Off-wiki comments about it are in private. He also said I did something intimidating toward you and Atudu that made you both fearful of me for some reason, and led to me being blocked. Which I didn't do, especially toward Atudu, because I never contacted her. Either he got the idea that I sent you and her intimidating messages from you, her, or he made it up for some reason. But one of you is lying about this whole thing and it caused me to get blocked.

Bodhisattwa (talkcontribs)

I contacted Mahir256 off-wiki about the tone which you have used in the RfD. Thats what he is referring to. From the quotes above, it does not seem to me that he is referring to any off-wiki message from you. Anyway, everything is in Adminstrator's noticeboard now, where I have explained my stand and I wish to reply there.

Hi Vmijuni3x07i5lpi,

You are receiving this message as you are one of the participants of WikiProject India on Wikidata and/or a subscriber of the Wikidata India newsletter.

Hope you and your loved ones are safe and sound during this ongoing COVID-19 pandemic situation.

This is for your kind information that, from 22nd May, 2020 Friday to 24th May, 2020 Sunday, a datathon will be happening on Indian scientists on Wikidata. The lack of data about Indian scientists, their works and publications on Wikidata is the reason behind conducting the datathon. Considering the ongoing pandemic, the datathon will also focus on scientists working on SARS-CoV-2 and COVID-19.

The tasklist of the datathon is flexible. Participants can choose their own preferred task on this topic

Hoping for your active participation.

Take care and stay safe,

The ode (Q178985) is a literary genre, not a literary form. A form is determined by its structure, a genre by its content. Since an ode is an ode because of its content it is a genre rather than a form. --EncycloPetey (talk) 19:43, 3 March 2020 (UTC)

Deleting "book" from short story collections

2
Freddy eduardo (talkcontribs)

Please, don't remove the "book" claim from the "Instance Of" statement in short story collections. The problem we have is that only by adding "book" we can differentiate if the item refers to a single short story or to a short story collection, as both have the claim "short story" in the genre statement. There is a "short story collection" item, but that one cant be added in the genre statement because a "short story collection" isn't a literary genre, "short story" is. So, having the book claim in the "instance of" is the only way of separating them. And this is used in many wikipedias to autocategorize the articles, so by deleting the book claim you are breaking categories in different wikipedias. Please, put the "book" claim again in the short story collections to correct this problem. Best regards, Freddy

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) 14:09, 23 October 2019 (UTC)

Sure, thanks.
