Welcome to Wikidata, Fuzheado!

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 familiarize yourself with:

  • Introduction – An introduction to the project.
  • Wikidata tours – Interactive tutorials to show you how Wikidata works.
  • Community portal – The portal for community members.
  • User options – including the 'Babel' extension, to set your language preferences.
  • Contents – The main help page for editing and using the site.
  • Project chat – Discussions about the project.
  • Tools – A collection of user-developed tools to allow for easier completion of some tasks.

Please remember to sign your messages on talk pages by typing four tildes (~~~~); this will automatically insert your username and the date.

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.

P31 and P279[edit]

Hello, about this edit: there is difference between instance of (P31) and subclass of (P279). Please see Help:Basic membership properties. — Ivan A. Krestinin (talk) 22:19, 11 May 2017 (UTC)

@Ivan A. Krestinin: - Can you clarify? Just because there are "two" of something doesn't make it a subclass of something else. It's possible to have a series of items be no more than multiple instances of something and for it not to be significant enough to warrant a new class of satellite. All the Venera items need work, and not all should be new subclasses of spacecraft. -- Fuzheado (talk) 00:56, 12 May 2017 (UTC)

senior editor (Q26206833)[edit]

This occupation has little value since it doesn't link out to anything that explains what makes it so different from the occupation of editor. People should definitely not be given any occupation that doesn't have at least one Wikipedia article somewhere explaining what it is. In such cases, assign the occupations most closely resembling the job, and consider using "field of work" to express the field or "position held" to reflect seniority, as in "Editor-in-chief" of a magazine. The goal is to keep the occupation hierarchy as flat as possible for both query purposes and to maximize usability with external databases. Narrowing the occupation degrades "findability". Jane023 (talk) 08:24, 18 July 2017 (UTC)

@Jane023: - I agree with you in general on this. But there is a conundrum that this is a very common title in news production and journalism, which represents a higher status, almost like a "distinguished professor" or "chair professor" is in academia or a "senior advisor" in the political ranks. Neither of those do well in Wikidata either, as they are enhancements on the professor and advisor titles, and may not merit a standalone article. There is a big difference between editor and senior editor in journalism, so I'm a bit torn on this. Are there other areas where we can learn from regarding this kind of arrangement? -- Fuzheado (talk) 14:09, 18 July 2017 (UTC)
I get that, but maybe it would help to look at the ecclesiastical lists? Someone has cleaned a lot of those up. "Archbishop" is not an profession but you get there by becoming a theologian. Theoretically you become a senior editor when you change jobs or get a promotion so this would be "position held", which is not to be confused with the profession of journalism.

Returning Japanese[edit]

I am adding some missing IMDB links and ran into Returning Japanese, part 1 (Q32826346) and Returning Japanese, part 2 (Q32826348). According to IMDB it's one extra long episode. Maybe better to merge these two? Multichill (talk) 10:02, 23 September 2017 (UTC)

Looks like the ordering and dates you used are not the same as IMDB. This query gives an overview of the episodes:
SELECT ?item ?itemLabel ?date ?previous ?previousLabel ?next ?nextLabel ?imdb WHERE {
  ?item wdt:P179 wd:Q1135966 .
  MINUS { ?item wdt:P31 wd:Q3464665 } .
  OPTIONAL { ?item wdt:P1191 ?date } .
  OPTIONAL { ?item wdt:P155 ?previous } .
  OPTIONAL { ?item wdt:P156 ?next } .
  OPTIONAL { ?item wdt:P345 ?imdb } .
    SERVICE wikibase:label { bd:serviceParam wikibase:language "en". }
} ORDER BY ?date LIMIT 1000
Try it!
Look for example at the start of season three. Where did you get the data from?
If the ordering is not the same as IMDB, my bot won't be able to add the missing IMDB links. Multichill (talk) 10:14, 23 September 2017 (UTC)
