Different from[edit]

The property "different from" is not meant as a disambig between labels, but between items whose statements overlap in ways that trigger the constraints (same collection, same date, same artist, etc). I have reverted your edit here. Jane023 (talk) 19:50, 10 August 2017 (UTC)

I think it is difficult to confuse some items haystack (Q62577) Haystack (Q13703024) if they have at least basic description or P31 movie d1g (talk) 04:36, 11 August 2017 (UTC)

Yes probably. That is not the purpose of the "different from" property, however. That property is meant for cases where a possible merge is possible because a Wikidatan may consider the thing the same when looking at the item information in both cases. In this case, the basic "instance of" is different, so there is no risk of confusing the two. Jane023 (talk) 11:48, 11 August 2017 (UTC)
@Jane023, D1gggg: I appreciate and agree with your comments. I'll refine my process and remove those different from (P1889) that were unnecessary. Thanks -- LaddΩ chat ;) 12:46, 11 August 2017 (UTC)
