Adding langlinks[edit]

Hi Koavf, I saw you were adding langlinks on the Indianapolis item. I just want to let you there's tool for adding langlinks. This makes it really easy to add them all at once. You need to add


to your common.js. Regards, Wiki13 talk 18:59, 1 November 2012 (UTC)


Per your successful RfA I have promoted you to administrator. Congratulations. Best regards. — MarcoAurelio (talk) 15:12, 15 November 2012 (UTC)


I've brought up your deletion of Category:User simple at WD:Project chat.--Jasper Deng (talk) 06:04, 16 November 2012 (UTC)

Main page full protection[edit]

I disagree with that. The spirit of the wiki is to allow any page to be edited, and protection should be used only to prevent ongoing disruption, which has not materialized.--Jasper Deng (talk) 06:43, 16 November 2012 (UTC)

Q52 Wikipedia aliases[edit]

Why did you add non-English names of Wikipedia as English aliases? --Yair rand (talk) 06:04, 7 February 2013 (UTC)

Whoops That was a silly error—I noticed part of the way through and stopped, but didn't delete the aliases I had already added. —Justin (koavf)TCM 09:05, 7 February 2013 (UTC)

Wikipedia:Justin Knapp Day (Q11590237)[edit]

Hi Koavf! I just revisited (Q'|11590237) . You may add some help tools to user:Koavf/common.js . Please see User:Rotsaert8000 (in Esperanto), Wikidata:Tools, and Wikidata:Tools/User scripts. On the user:i18n-page you will see all WD gadget links. It takes time to see what fits most of your interests. Good luck gangLeri לערי ריינהארט (talk) 11:55, 20 May 2014 (UTC)

A Love Supreme (Q5106)[edit]

I removed it because 'instrumental' is not a language. I guessed it was okay to remove because 'instrumental' was already covered by the genres mentioned. I can't think of a way of expressing "no language" in data, apart from leaving the value empty (clicking on the little icon and pressing "no value"). I didn't do that because I don't recall that being done on any other items about language-less music pieces I've seen. --BurritoBazooka (talk) 14:06, 20 September 2015 (UTC)

@BurritoBazooka: But instrumental music isn't a genre. Do you know how any Wikipedias handle this? I've edited a lot of album articles on en.wp and "instrumental" is considered valid for the Language field there. Thanks for responding. —Justin (koavf)TCM 03:57, 21 September 2015 (UTC


Just saw you around here, excellent :) WD needs more cross-pollination from other active networks. Sj (talk) 21:50, 5 December 2015 (UTC)

@Sj: Thanks: I always want to work more on WMF projects than time will allow. —Justin (koavf)TCM 04:00, 6 December 2015 (UTC)
