Pilsner Urquell Brewery[edit]

Regarding your diff: I know the coordinates are already embedded within another attribute, but the template en:Template:Infobox brewery uses the coordinates (as free-standing attribute) to populate the infobox mapframe on en:Pilsner Urquell Brewery. It may make sense to update the brewery infobox template to draw from either headquarters or coords, but I don't know how to do that.-Ich (talk) 13:52, 13 November 2018 (UTC)

Hi, an imperfection of enwiki template is not a valid reason to make compromises here at WD. We are trying to be as precise as possible here at WD and WD has also more granularity than WD. That is why we have a separate item for company Plzeňský Prazdroj (Q948831), for brewery (building) Brewery Plzeňský Prazdroj (Q26958672) (that has directly P625) and product Pilsner Urquell (Q331630).
It is possible to draw coordinates from P159 qualifier, at cswiki we use {{#invoke:Wikidata|getQualifier|qualifier=P625|property=P159|type=landmark|display=infobox}} for that, but it depends on the current state of wikidata module enwiki. Feel free to contact enwiki WD enthusiasts (like User:Mike Peel or User:RexxS), I am sure that they will help with proper WD implementation to en:Template:Infobox brewery. I will be happy to see more than P625 in that infobox, for example at cswiki we use from WD image (P18), headquarters location (P159), inception (P571), dissolved, abolished or demolished (P576) and official website (P856).--Jklamo (talk) 21:00, 13 November 2018 (UTC)
That is a really weird way to store the coordinates ... But anyway, @Ich: on enwp, try using {{#invoke:WikidataIB |getValue | rank=best |P159 |qid=Q948831 |fwd=ALL |osd=no |noicon=y |qual=P625 |qualsonly=yes | maxvals=1}}. Thanks. Mike Peel (talk) 19:59, 15 November 2018 (UTC)

Wikidata:WikiProject Roads translation error[edit]

I saw that you removed a translation tag from Wikidata:WikiProject Roads, citing an error caused by the tag. Can you please explain what the error was, and if this could possibly affect other pages with {{Roadtable}}? -happy5214 07:54, 27 November 2018 (UTC)

Hi, there was some Lua error, but unfortunately, I do not remember the exact wording. I tried to revert my removal and I see, that there is no error now. So it seems that error was not translation tag related and maybe just something temporary.--Jklamo (talk) 09:35, 27 November 2018 (UTC)

Kiev vs. Kyiv[edit]

Specifically, I'm asking about your diffs like [1] in Embassy of the People's Republic of China, Kyiv (Q1397307).

TBH, is this really necessary? I don't think that PR China governments also have to act a role in such English naming conflicts, and I don't know why there's benefits for them, per the last month comment from Paul Eggert (ICANN staff), these kind of changes are "hassle for both maintainers and users", so when possible, I suggest to name this under naming-neutral umbrella, e.g. we use Asia/Shanghai instead of Asia/Beijing, not because Shanghai is more common than Beijing, but because Beijing has naming confusions (mainly about morden usages of its old-decade name "Peking"). --Liuxinyu970226 (talk) 02:48, 2 December 2018 (UTC)

Hi, it is a year old edit, so I have just a very vague idea about my then thoughts. I have no strong idea, so feel free to rename the item.--Jklamo (talk) 14:20, 9 December 2018 (UTC)
