There is a problem with this edit. The decimal point seems to have been missed to 18,5 m becomes 185 m. Finn Årup Nielsen (fnielsen) (talk) 17:08, 5 October 2017 (UTC)

Ladsgroup (talkcontribs)

Hey, I think there is no problem. 185 was there and stayed the same. Can you elaborate more?

Fnielsen (talkcontribs)

Sorry, I now see it is not a conversion problem with your bot. I think the correct height is 18.5 meters. And this is what I now read on the Italian Wikipedia. The Italian apparently uses comma as the decimal separator (as Denmark) and write is as "18,5 m". 185 meters can hardly be correct as this is above the highest natural point in Denmark. But sorry I am misreading the history of the article. I now see that the height is added by User:Thierry Caro with this edit. Your bot is just editing qualifiers. There is nothing wrong with you bot and conversion.

Looking at https://www.wikidata.org/w/index.php?title=Q1520130&action=history

maybe it would help if subsequent reverts were somewhat delayed.

Ladsgroup (talkcontribs)

Hey, Sorry I don't understand. All reverts made by the bot were okay and the item is not a sandbox to do test edits on. So what's the problem then?

Jura1 (talkcontribs)

That bot works fine (good work btw), but it seems that the vandal just tried until it didn't get reverted.

The bot could easily have done the second revert after 15 minutes or an hour.

Ladsgroup (talkcontribs)

Oh I see. Thanks. I think in these cases it's better that the bot to report edit warring so admins semi-protect the page or a live report of things like this.

Jura1 (talkcontribs)

Maybe even the bot could semi-protect for a short period of time

Hi. Here is a list of some 400+ items of category redirects from French Wiktionary which should be deleted. Could you do this?

Ladsgroup (talkcontribs)

Done :)

XXN (talkcontribs)

Thanks.

GZWDer (talkcontribs)

Should this page be translateable?

Ladsgroup (talkcontribs)

Yes, I think so.

Hello, I noticed that your bot imported thematic categories from simple, but connected them with same named en.wikt categories. But it is problematic:

simple.wikt have only one language - english, so their thematic categories were connected with english themes:

simple:Category:Animals = en:Category:en:Animals

Now there are many interwiki conflicts

Ladsgroup (talkcontribs)

The stupid bot. How we can fix them?

JAn Dudík (talkcontribs)

Probably best soulution would be remove all simple.wikt categories links from wikidata and ipmorting them again according to their interwiki links

I've started a thread on Wikidata:Administrators' noticeboard#User:Dexbot (inactive admin bot) to discuss the status of Dexbot, since it technically meets the inactive admin criteria.

Ladsgroup (talkcontribs)

Hey, I answered there, sorry for that. I get it working soon.

Hi again!

Could you either stop your bot from creating new items with only one sitelink, or import the interwiki links at the same time? Importing only one sitelink makes it difficult for other people to work on Wiktionary items at the same time. :( For example, the Slurp Interwiki gadget keeps failing for me (with the very unhelpful error "Save error: The save has failed.") because your bot has already added one of the sitelinks to another item.

Also, could you add instance of (P31) Wikimedia category (Q4167836) when creating category items? I'm trying to make sure categories are marked as categories (I expect some Wiktionary users who aren't familiar with Wikidata to create items without the right P31 statement), but so far I'm mostly cleaning up after bots. :/

Ladsgroup (talkcontribs)

Hey, if you give the bot some days it will add the sitelinks afterwards, unfortunately the script to do that is not well-designed. I will add the statement in a later run.

Ladsgroup (talkcontribs)

For example: https://www.wikidata.org/w/index.php?title=Q31157885&action=history

Nikki (talkcontribs)

I don't think that's acceptable, not only is it causing other people to create duplicates, the bot is creating duplicates of its own items, e.g. no label (Q31159042) and no label (Q31160053). It seems it even removed the interwiki links from wikt:et:Kategooria:Bikoli_keel without adding them to Wikidata.

There is another bot which has been creating items for Wiktionary in a much better manner (JAnDbot). If yours can't create items in a way which doesn't cause problems, maybe JAn Dudík would be willing to run it for other wikis too, or perhaps you could use the code from that bot instead.

Ladsgroup (talkcontribs)

I took all safety measures to prevent making duplicates and nothing is 100% perfect and can't be. I stopped the bot completely. Have fun cleaning interwikis.

JAn Dudík (talkcontribs)

There is problem with interwikidata.py (phab:T168575), so User:Matěj Suchánek made for me script which is able to import linkss to existing same-named items.

I will run my bot for small wiktionaries when I am finished with cs and sk.wiktionary.

GZWDer (talkcontribs)

Probably it's time to import sitelink for categories, templates and other non-main namespace pages by bot.

Ladsgroup (talkcontribs)

Started importing categories, it takes some time to finish though.

Infovarius (talkcontribs)

How do you decide which are quite notable? For example, there can be numerous subpages...

Ladsgroup (talkcontribs)

I'm on categories now.

GZWDer (talkcontribs)

Which kind of subpage?

Hi :) I have a couple of questions about some Islamic calendar items and I thought you might be able to help.

I'm wondering whether it would be appropriate to merge Sanatul Fuqaha (Q7415545) and 94 AH (Q6026882).

I'm also wondering if the Western Punjabi label and sitelink on 95 AH (Q6032381) should be moved to 94 AH (Q6026882) and pnb:95ھ added to 95 AH (Q6032381) instead.

Can you help? (If not, do you know anyone who can?)

Ladsgroup (talkcontribs)

Regarding the first one, I'm not sure. They are pointing to the same entity (year) but the first item is talking about the reason that the year is famous for (for example in future we might label 2016 as "the year Trump got elected and everything went to shit" but that's not only thing that happened in 2016) so I'm not sure about merging those. Maybe the talk page of that article in English Wikipedia is a good place to start the discussion and maybe turn it into an about-year article. Regarding the second thing. You are right and please go ahead. Thanks for finding it!

Nikki (talkcontribs)

Thanks! I've fixed the second one, I think I'll leave the first one alone for now.

Could you also have a look at 300 (Q25641)? It's the only AD year where the part in brackets hasn't been removed from the Farsi label.

Ladsgroup (talkcontribs)

Done :)

Hi. Please improve the bot code to not create new WD items for soft redirected categories (en:Category:Wikipedia soft redirected categories).

I see this isn't yet explicitly mentioned in WD:N, but we can assume that soft redirected categories aren't notable by themself to create an item for them, just like regular redirects. ;)

Ladsgroup (talkcontribs)

Hey, my bot uses pywikibot and it automatically skips them unless there is a configuration bug or a bug in pywikibot. Can you show me an example to examine?

XXN (talkcontribs)

Ah, I understand now, the list of 'Category redirect' template redirects for en.wp is incomplete in PWB. Use this:

       template_list = {
               u'Category redirect',
               u'Categoryredirect',
               u'Catredirect',
               u'Cat redirect',
               u'Category Redirect',
               u'Cat redir',
               u'Catred',
               u'Cat red',
               u'Cat move',
               u'Category move',
               u'Catr',
       }

Several such category items remained without sitelinks after they were removed, and a clean-up is needed (though not easy, still possible to do with a bot parsing edit summaries which have links to category pages in WP).

XXN (talkcontribs)

A related patch for PWB is on gerrit now.

XXN (talkcontribs)

Found some examples: Category:Women craftspeople (Q29351797), Category:Wikipedians of Slavic descent. (Q28466865).
