ELSONRICS (talkcontribs)

Well what I mean is that the information provided is mine. Only that the information is in google z anomekjor so they think that it is not mine but it is my own information z I cannot steal my own identity. Please return the information.

Hi. I'm not sure what you mean here. The note I left on your talk page last month concerned your changes to Ketamine and Electroconvulsive Therapy for Depression (Q89997580) which removed all the claims from an item about a scholarly article. Such wholesale deletion of content is often interpreted as vandalism.

I see that you have also had some files deleted on Wikimedia Commons (1, 2). This is something that you really need to take up on Commons, which is a separate project. We cannot help you with it here on Wikidata.

Having said that, a few words of advice regarding Commons: You appear to be running afoul of their copyright rules. In particular, you may find it useful to read commons:Commons:Licensing and commons:Commons:Copyright rules. Above all, if you don't understand these, please ask for assistance and advice. People would rather engage with you and help you to be a constructive contributor than drive you away merely because you don't understand the project's rules. Good luck!

Hello Bovlb,<br>A few points about this artist.<br>1) No secondary source establishes a relationship between Alix-Louise Enault (born in 1850) and Alix Duval (born in 1848). It is a mistake. The name of Alix Duval should therefore be withdrawn.<br>2) The verifiable sources give 1850 for his date of birth.<br>3) It is useless to prescribe "artist" when it is already mentioned that she is "painter".

Thank you for your attention. Best regards.

Thanks! It appears that the confusion arose when @Tylwyth Eldar merged them a few months ago. I have reversed the merge. Thanks for following up.

Tylwyth Eldar (talkcontribs)

Hello @Bovlb

Thank you for the notification.

I looked for new sources. According to her marriage certificate and her death certificate, she was born Alix Marie Bardin, on 1 november 1846 and she died on 2 january 1909. She used the name Alix Duval before her marriage but the only source are newspapers from the 1870s. The sources are available in the french article. Best regards. (talkcontribs)

Hello Bovlb,

I fixed the birth place : Cherbourg instead of Paris, as it is mentioned in the register of births of Cherbourg ([ here]).

Starting a new topic on behalf of User:RVFA who mistakenly added the following to the page description:``

Hello! I'm RVFA and I want to tell you that I made a mistake when I created "Radio Victoria" Q95350993, I put the name "TCL Electronics" by mistake when I actually wanted to put "Radio Victoria" on The reason was that on that day the cell phone that I use for editing was labeled, I use copied and pasted a lot from the cell phone, inadvertently copied "TCL Electronics" and pasted to create Q95350993 you understand what I mean. Then a user LucianoLucho started editing Q95350993 and Q29468800 then it got me confused and I ended up editing "Radio Victoria" in "TCL Electronics" Q29468800. At that time I was new here I only knew how to edit the basics and I'm learning to edit. My intention is to independently create a page for "Radio Victoria" and that is why I created the wikidata first Q95350993. I want to know if I can recover Q95350993 for "Radio Victoria" or do I have to make a new one. "Radio Victoria" is an Argentine electronic company that is dedicated to the distribution of electronic products. "Radio Victoria" Q95350993 and "TCL Electronics" Q29468800 have a joint venture in Argentina, then "TCL Electronics" bought 15% of the share capital of "Radio Victoria" I put sources on that. I await your response Thank you!

@RVFA: Hi! Your best bet here would be to start a new item for "Radio Victoria". Happy editing!

Starting a new topic on behalf of User:MRRaja001 who mistakenly added the following to the page description:

Recently the article K. S. Narayanacharya was deleted after a long discussion. So there are no articles related to him on Wikipedia. This was the reason why i cleaned the content on that page. If possible please delete it Q6965522, Thanks - MRRaja001 (talk) 02:57, 2 July 2020 (UTC)

Bovlb (talkcontribs)

@MRRaja001: Two points:

  1. I don't know if you're aware, but Wikidata has different standards for inclusion from the various client projects, so it doesn't necessarily follow that we will delete an item after all sitelinks are removed. Having said that, this item does seem to fail our criteria.
  2. If you want to see an item deleted, the correct path is to add a request to WD:Requests for deletion. In particular, blanking is not usually on the path to requesting deletion, and is more commonly interpretted as vandalism.

I'm going to go ahead and delete this item.

Done, but honestly it would fine to just merge, and you can do it yourself. Help::Merge

Hi Bovlb,

I apologize for any chaos I might have caused--it was very much unintentional. I am relatively new to Wikidata, though I have worked on English Wikipedia for a number of years. I assumed that privacy and notability guidelines were the same across all Wikimedia projects, and I thought I was helping by requesting deletion and removing those statements. I didn't realize those pages had been deliberately imported from The Peerage--especially given many of them only had mother and father statements--not even given name/surname statements ''or'' sibling statements. I actually added a number of these statements on a number of pages. Many of them were mostly empty (aside from parental/spousal statements), and a couple of the pages were for stillborn children; and so I had thought a genealogy enthusiast had just been a little overenthusiastic and was just entering available data as one would on an ancestry site.

This is why I stopped when it was brought up to me, and I did go back and undo a few of them--I would have undone more, but I've been out of town with family for a couple of weeks. I'll double-check and make sure everything is put back. It honestly wasn't intended as malicious, although in hindsight I can see how it might come across as such. Again, I apologize for the trouble and for the misunderstanding.

Best, ~~~~

Bovlb (talkcontribs)

Hi! Thanks for responding.

Just to clarify, the main point for me was that you were removing apparently-correct links between items before requesting their deletion. Our notability policy has three parts, one of which is "structural need". The evidence for structural need is typically the fact that an item has links from other items. So, unless submitted for deletion as a group, an item with incoming links should not be deleted. An admin processing a deletion request may not take the time to check the history and hence might assume that the current state of an item is a good basis for assessing its notability. This is why the act of making changes that reduce the apparent notability of an item before requesting its deletion is considered misleading.

Looks like we're all sorted out now so happy editing!

Hello Bovlb. Thanks for your message and your suggestions about duplicated items. From now on, I will do it in the way you explain. Sorry, I did not know the implications of my changes. Best regards.

Hello! I had seen you had done a revert of one of my contributions... that is okay! I am new here and i am still learning so thank you for leaving a message on my talk because it helps the growing process. Thanks!

Bovlb (talkcontribs)

Hi! Welcome to Wikidata, and thanks for responding.

I wanted to draw your attention to Help:Description and, in particular, the guidance that descriptions should be in mid-sentence case, so words should not be capitalized unless they are proper names.

Bunkytrap34 (talkcontribs)

Ahh okay i see what you are talking about! Mid-sentence case; Correct! Thank you Bovlb

Jaceksoci68 (talkcontribs)

You're probably right. I have withdrawn my changes.

Bovlb (talkcontribs)

Thanks. In future, if you do find duplicate pages, please merge (see Help:Merge) instead of blanking.

Hola! Gracias por tus sugerencias. El item Q96319234 fue creado por mí, no habían pasado 5 minutos cuando me di cuenta de que ya existía, fue un error mío no verificar primero. Por eso pedí que fuera borrado, ya que tenía un solo autor: yo; y no estaba enlazado a ninguna página todavía. Gracias y saludos! ~~~~

Bovlb (talkcontribs)

Deletion is fine for the "five minute" case, but so is the merge, and you can do it yourself!
