Summary by Lucas Werkmeister

template for Swedish proper nouns deployed

LA2 (talkcontribs)

How are new lexeme forms / templates added? To begin with, Swedish could need one for proper nouns. These have two forms: nominative case, genitive case, as in the example Lexeme:L475568. Should I come here to ask you to do it, or can I add a template myself?

LA2 (talkcontribs)
Lucas Werkmeister (talkcontribs)

You can add a template yourself at Wikidata:Wikidata Lexeme Forms/Swedish, possibly in collaboration with the people who already edited that page. When it’s ready, ping me and I’ll add it to the tool :)

LA2 (talkcontribs)
Lucas Werkmeister (talkcontribs)

One minor thing: are proper nouns always capitalized in Swedish? If they aren’t, it would be better to rephrase the second example sentence so the input isn’t at the beginning of the sentence – otherwise, people might enter the word in uppercase just because it starts a sentence, when the lexeme/form should really be lowercase.

LA2 (talkcontribs)

Good point! Fixed now.

Lucas Werkmeister (talkcontribs)

Alright, done :) thanks!

LA2 (talkcontribs)

(Never mind, I found out that this was already implemented.)

Structured data across Wikimedia is starting!

Sannita (WMF) (talkcontribs)

Hello there, Lucas! I am writing to you because a new WMF project, Structured Data Across Wikimedia (SDAW), is about to start.

SDAW is a grant-funded programme that will explore ways to structure content on wikitext pages in a way that will be machine-recognizable and -relatable, in order to make reading, editing, and searching easier and more accessible across projects and on the Internet.

The reason why I am contacting you is because of [your work on the projects, especially on Wikidata], and your opinion would be of great interest for us to kickstart the discussion. We defined a series of questions we would like to have feedback on. If you want to ask a question on your own, or just want to share with us your ideas or opinions, please feel free to do so!

Also, if you know some other user(s) that can be interested, please let me know or invite them to join the discussion. The more, the better!

Hope to hear from you soon!

Lucas Werkmeister (talkcontribs)

Pardon, the reason you’re contacting me is what? 😜

Thanks for the notification – I think I randomly came across the page a few days ago (don’t remember why) and was a bit confused about its status (who’s proposing this? is it actually happening or just what some random person would like to happen?), glad that’s a bit clearer now. I’ll be interested in where this goes!

Sannita (WMF) (talkcontribs)

OMG, I'm so sorry, I usually fix the message for all the users, and... I made a mistake about yours. -_-' I'm so sorry. Thanks for the feedback, and if you're interested I'll keep you posted. :)

Wikidata Lexeme Forms - Portuguese

EnaldoSS (talkcontribs)

Hi. I added sections in Portuguese for insertion of feminine and masculine nouns (based on those in Spanish). Can you take a look?

Lucas Werkmeister (talkcontribs)

Thanks! The noun templates look good to me – I left a question about the adjective one on the talk page.

Lucas Werkmeister (talkcontribs)

About the unnecessary capital letters issue, maybe an alternative option would be to rephrase the sentences so the placeholder word isn’t at the beginning anymore? My Portuguese isn’t very good, but something like Aí, canta tu agora…?

EnaldoSS (talkcontribs)

Done! :D

Lucas Werkmeister (talkcontribs)

Wait, but now we have two forms with the same set of grammatical features, that can’t be right. Maybe instead of tu/você it should be tu/ele? (Wiktionary claims that In Rio de Janeiro, Santa Catarina and most Northeastern States, tu is used in very informal situations, though it uses the third-person singular conjugation of verbs – I guess that was the logic behind the previous versions?)

EnaldoSS (talkcontribs)

Indeed, I mistook the pronoun with the verb

Dear Lucas Werkmeister:

I have a notification that I have not read until now about the deletion of an item. This is the diff in which I was mentioned. I don't remember the item nor something about it. I am not discussing you the decision of the deletion, I am just asking which item was. I am bit confused about it, because if I created an item with just Instagram links as references it must have been an old one created by me.

Excuse me the inconvenience of asking you about something happened some months ago. Thanks in advance.

Regards.

Lucas Werkmeister (talkcontribs)

I don’t remember the item either, sorry – you’ll have to ask an admin…

Ivanhercaz (talkcontribs)

Thank you, Lucas! I will do it.

Das Substantiv Spanisch Femininum erzeugt ein Maskulinum. Wenn du mal Zeit hast, bitte korrigieren. Danke.

I'm unhappy about the removed years. Isn't it possible to integrate fictional calendars into Wikidata somehow?

Lucas Werkmeister (talkcontribs)

Eventually, maybe – but if Wikibase gains support for fictional calendars before some real ones (see e. g. Julian day, Hebrew, Solar Hijri), then some people will probably get angry, and quite rightfully so.

Thanks so much, Lucas, for adding the rest of the works, plus making all the other improvements. Really appreciate it. --~~~~

Hello Lucas! I added Basque Verb to the forms. Maybe you can take a look and see if everything is ok. Thanks!

Lucas Werkmeister (talkcontribs)

I don’t understand the auxiliary verb (P5401) just before the list of forms – is that supposed to be a statement on the lexeme, or on each form? If yes, with what value?

Theklan (talkcontribs)

with the lexeme. It should change according to th verb. Do you want a list?

Lucas Werkmeister (talkcontribs)

How many possible values are we talking about? If they don’t influence the example sentences, I would exclude them from the template and expect users to add the statement manually afterwards. (So far there are no templates that require users to enter a value for a statement, and I haven’t implemented anything like that – only templates with certain constant statements.)

Theklan (talkcontribs)

exclude it, yes

Lucas Werkmeister (talkcontribs)

Done, please try it out!

Theklan (talkcontribs)

Thanks! It works perfectly!

Vorlagen für Substantive erfolgreich aktiviert

Şêr (talkcontribs)

Hallo Lucas,

ich hoffe dir geht's soweit gut. Könntest du, wenn du irgendwann Zeit hast, wenigstens die Vorlage (Form) für die Substantive aktivieren? siehe: Wikidata:Wikidata Lexeme Forms/Kurdish. Ich würde diese Vorlage für die künftigen und die bereits bestehenden kurdischen Lexeme verwenden wollen. Vielen Dank, Gruß, Şêr

Lucas Werkmeister (talkcontribs)

Sorry, dass ich das so lange hab schlafen lassen… Substantive sind jetzt verfügbar, alles weitere können wir in der alten Diskussion weiter besprechen.

Şêr (talkcontribs)

Es tut mir leid, ich wollte nicht drängen. Vielen lieben Dank. Ich habe versucht die einzelnen Lexems "manuell" nachzutragen. Das war 'ne Qual :)) Ich habe die restlichen Formen auch schlafen lassen. Bin aber dabei mir Gedanken zu machen wegen der Punkte, die du angesprochen hast. Ich bleibe auch dran und werde ich sehr bald bei dir melden deswegen. Lieben Gruß aus Warnemünde, Şêr
