Hey, Done :)
Wrong match of cast in dexbot
Hey, thanks for reporting but this edit happened five years ago. It was due to linking the character in the list of cast and I see it as an acceptable false positive than can be found and fixed really easily. I'm not running the bot for a very long time too.
Hey Amir, there are ~1500 items describing a qanat (Q459297) in Iran which do not have a sitelink any longer . Most (if not all) of the linked fawiki articles were recently deleted by User:Huji (whom I hereby invite to help with this problem as well).
Unfortunately the items lack sufficient information to be really useful from my point of view. Do you think it is possible to somehow improve them, particularly by linking them to some external source? Otherwise we need to consider deletion of the Wikidata items as well, I’m afraid…
Hi! These articles were created on mass using a bot, and later those qanats were deemed non-notable due to lack of additional sources with substantial discussion about them, therefore the articles were changed into redirects to lists of qanats.
I would say they fill the part three of Wikidata:Notability and keeping them as they are would be okay.
Without any backlinks I do not see how they could have structural need.
The data set definitely has potential to be useful for Wikidata, but right now it is in fact impossible to work with it for non-insiders. I am not even sure whether one can identify the qanats described by the items, based just on the sparse data they contain currently… That is actually the problem, and this is why I ask whether external sources are available.
There is some sort of database that we dumped its data into Persian Wikipedia. finding anything beside that would be hard and I doubt we can find anything at all. I honestly don't know what to do here, deleting them is the last option IMO but it's an option.
I meanwhile found that there are much more items about qanat, at least ~13.5k. Most of them do have a sitelink, but it appears that (most of) these sitelinks are redirects to lists of qanats. Would this be an option for the ~1.5k items in question here? Certainly not a beautiful one, but it would at least help users to find additional information…
The decision was to gradually merge them into lists, so they will be the same sooner or later.
I have now removed the 1504 items in question from User:Pasleim/Items for deletion/Page deleted/Archive/2018/03 and consider this issue done for now, although I think that someone should somehow improve the items. In total the dataset does indeed look okay for Wikidata, in my opinion.
Tabriz railway station
Hello, my friend!
Please help me. How to find Iranian National Heritage registration number for Tabriz station building?
Hey, thank you for notifying me, I looked in the internet and couldn't find anything, I think that number is not public yet. By that, I mean no one cared to publish it. let's wait for a while until the website gets updated. I will check this next weekend.
After lots of search, I found [http://webcache.googleusercontent.com/search?q=cache:zTA1wpuxv_sJ:www.eachto.org/index.php/etc/3270-2017-07-31-03-00-33+&cd=2&hl=en&ct=clnk&gl=de&client=ubuntu] cached version because the main one goes 404. The id is 31703 :)
The new change on the patrol system
I did not completely understand what is going to happen on April 4th. Is the patrol log going to be removed altogether? Or only the edits that were automatically marked as patrol are going to be removed from the log?
Thank you for the answer. Just to make sure I understand well, nothing is going to change for edits that were manually marked as patrolled?
In case of wikidata, manual patrol logs older than April of 2016 will be also removed.
OK, and manual patrol logs on other projects will not be removed, right?
There is no plan to do that unless needed and consulted with the community beforehand.
Autopatrolled changes for a specific title
I'm contacting you for some technical advice related to the removal of autopatrolled entries from logs, as you were mentioned as a contact in the Wikitech announcement.
I have a script that relies on those logs to show patrolled entries in the history of an specific page (w:fr:Utilisateur:Orlodrim/hist-relecture.js). After the deployment of the change, do you know if there will be any way to efficiently compute patrolled revisions on a specific page, among those made in the last 30 days? It doesn't seem possible to query the recent change table for a specific title, so I can't figure out a solution to keep this script working.
Hey, I've been checking and working on this in the past couple of days, it seems your use case is valid and there is a need to add page title and/or page id in action=query&list=recentchanges. I will keep you posted about this.
False positive for Dexbot anti-vadalism revert
I'm not sure where to report false positives, but this one seems to be one: https://www.wikidata.org/w/index.php?title=Q826776&diff=620266781&oldid=620266462 Cheers,
Thanks for the report, I will look into this soon.
Fixes to label capitalization are also often reverted (like this). Fighting your bot is quite annoying, I must say.
I'm buffled. I try to do some non-controversial edits, but I get repeatedly reverted by your bot. Namely here I correct label capitalization and harmonize property use following the example of similar items. Even extensive explanation in edit summary isn't enough to persuade your bot to allow me to make the edit. Care to give a helping hand here?
I totally concur. Fighting this bot is a major pain. Here is another false positive: [[Special:Diff/648799817]]. Please either fix these or disable this bot. It seems like this bot unduly penalizes anonymous users. Thank you.
I disabled the bot until I can investigate the false positives in more depth.
Dexbot produced the following cycle:
(Rumiñahui Canton) <-located in-- (Sangolquí) <--located in-- (Rumiñahui Canton)
Sangolqui is actually located in Rumiñahui Canton, not the inverse.
Could you at create the articles en:Architecture of Azerbaijan (Republic of Azerbaijan), en:List of Azerbaijani film directors (Republic of Azerbaijan) and en:Bodies of water of Azerbaijan (Republic of Azerbaijan) in Farsi (or request them yourself to other users in Farsi Wikipedia)?
