Welcome to Wikidata, Magnus Manske!

Wikidata is a free knowledge base that you can edit! It can be read and edited by humans and machines alike and you can go to any item page now and add to this ever-growing database!

Need some help getting started? Here are some pages you can familiarize yourself with:

  • Introduction – An introduction to the project.
  • Wikidata tours – Interactive tutorials to show you how Wikidata works.
  • Community portal – The portal for community members.
  • Contents – The main help page for editing and using the site.
  • Project chat – Discussions about the project.
  • Tools – A collection of user-developed JavaScript tools to allow for easier completion of some tasks.

If you have any questions, please ask me on my talk page. If you want to try out editing, you can use the sandbox to try. Once again, welcome, and I hope you quickly feel comfortable here, and become an active editor for Wikidata.

Best regards! --Guerillero | Talk 21:59, 2 January 2013 (UTC)

French senators[edit]

Wow, I've just seen your tweet about Mix'n'match, thanks a lot. But I've made an error about formatter URL :/. The right one is not http://www.senat.fr/senateur/$1.html but http://www.senat.fr/$1.html with ID like senateur/robert_sylvie14229s, senateur-4eme-republique/aguesse_georges0427r4, senateur-3eme-republique/babaud_lacroze_leonide0398r3, senateur-2nd-empire/cambaceres_marie_jean_pierre_hubert0025e2 or senateur-communaute/dailly_etienne000397 which made matching a lot more difficult (I guess)... I'm sorry I made you do this work maybe for nothing. Tell me if I can do something about this. — Ayack (talk) 20:15, 31 March 2015 (UTC)

Well, I didn't create the property, or set the formatter URL. I guess the property is intended only for the current republic, as is my mix'n'match set. --Magnus Manske (talk) 22:24, 31 March 2015 (UTC)
Yes, it was my mistake. I created the property and set the wrong formatter URL. But now that all IDs have been imported on Wikidata from my mix'n'match, I plan to do the following actions:
  1. add by bot senateur/ at the begining of the IDs on Wikidata,
  2. change the formatter URL to http://www.senat.fr/$1.html on senat.fr ID (P1808).
Then we will be able to use the property also for the former senators. Do yo see an issue with these actions? Thanks. — Ayack (talk) 10:47, 1 April 2015 (UTC)
Let me know once that is done; I will then modify the mix'n'match IDs, and try to import the other senators. --Magnus Manske (talk) 10:49, 1 April 2015 (UTC)
✓ Done. Thanks. — Ayack (talk) 20:07, 1 April 2015 (UTC)

Hi Magnus, you said you will try to import the other senators. Do you still plan to do it or is it too difficult? Thanks. — Ayack (talk) 19:23, 19 April 2015 (UTC)

✓ Done Now at 1,420. Names are last, first I'm afraid. --Magnus Manske (talk) 18:33, 20 April 2015 (UTC)
Great, thanks! — Ayack (talk) 18:47, 20 April 2015 (UTC)

Hi Magnus, the catalog is now marked as complete but as far as I can see there are only a handful of entries with ids starting with anything else than senateur/. The total number of entries should probably be above 4,000. I scraped a list that you may want to reload, containing additional fields to enable a description that would make matching easier. Part of the new entries can also be readily matched by leveraging the existing external links from frwiki. — Nono314 (talk) 17:43, 2 May 2015 (UTC)

✓ Done Now at 4,677 — 23:05, 10 May 2015 (UTC)

RKDimages (P350)[edit]

Viele durch Reinheitsgebot hinzugefügte RKDimages (P350) Werte sind ungültig, z.B. Nauru (Q697), tungsten (Q743), Unione Calcio Sampdoria (Q1457). Mehr Fehler auf [1]. Pasleim (talk) 10:58, 18 April 2015 (UTC)--

On Wikidata:Database_reports/Constraint_violations/Mandatory_constraints/Violations#RKDimages_.28P350.29:_Type_work_of_art_.28Q838948.29 you can find a whole list. Not sure what happened Magnus, but you know the deal, if your bot creates a mess, you clean it up. I gave you rollbacker to make that easier. Multichill (talk) 16:59, 18 April 2015 (UTC)
Seems like the Q-number for the item and the numerical RKD id were exchanged for the edits ;-)  – The preceding unsigned comment was added by Gymel (talk • contribs) at 17:21, 18 April 2015‎ (UTC).
Those should be gone now. Will try to import them correctly later. --Magnus Manske (talk) 10:27, 19 April 2015 (UTC)
Thanks for taking care of this. Multichill (talk) 19:38, 21 April 2015 (UTC)

First-grade humans[edit]

Reinheitsgebot has turned a few people into grade 1 listed buildings [2]. Maybe that refers to their graves or something, but their is no reference provided and I don't really know how to find out. --Zolo (talk) 06:27, 23 April 2015 (UTC)

RKDimage auto matches[edit]

Hi Magnus, in Mix'n'Match we ran out of auto matched items for RKDimages. Do you feel like having a shot at creating more auto-matched items? It's possible to extract the inventory number from the description. Take for example 105243 it has "inv./cat.nr. SK-A-4925", if you take this inventory number and use WDQ you get the right painting item. Sometimes you'll see a variation like inv./cat.nr. SK A 4878, this corrosponds to SK-A-4878. Do you think you can auto match some more items based on this? Multichill (talk) 11:40, 23 April 2015 (UTC)

Running it now. --Magnus Manske (talk) 18:41, 26 April 2015 (UTC)
Nice, over a thousand new auto matched items! Happy to see that and I'm sure Spinster is happy with that too :-) Multichill (talk) 19:44, 26 April 2015 (UTC)

Image search[edit]

distribution map (P1846) was finally created. If you want to add it to the search tool. --- Jura 17:19, 26 April 2015 (UTC)

Thanks, done. --Magnus Manske (talk) 18:03, 26 April 2015 (UTC)

no value and unknown value on WDQ[edit]

I forgot always the value for no value and unknown value on WDQ Can you add the value on wdq.wmflabs.org/api_documentation? Thanks --ValterVB (talk) 12:24, 1 May 2015 (UTC) ps can you check this problem?

Templates in Autolist[edit]

Hi Magnus, based on template usage on the Dutch Wikipedia I was able to add a lot of claims here. Maybe you can add the option to have templates as a generator too? For example that way we can ask for all pages that use en:Template:Infobox artist and combine it with the wdq query to see who of these people are not marked as human here. Would be quite useful. Probably need to add a namespace restriction that defaults to 0 like with the categories, for templates you can use this in the query with "tl_from_namespace" in the templatelinks table. Thanks, Multichill (talk) 11:13, 3 May 2015 (UTC)

be-x-old in Wikidata item creator[edit]

Wikidata item creator doesn't work for be-x-old. --Чаховіч Уладзіслаў (talk) 12:36, 3 May 2015 (UTC)

Mix'n'match für Oxford DNB[edit]

Hallo Magnus, so wie ich es verstanden habe, ist das doch jetzt komplett und es wurden Items angelegt für alle Artikel, die nicht gematcht werden konnten (bis auf evtl. von den Bearbeitern als "n/a" markierte?). Ich vermisse aber bei den Oxford Biography Index Number (P1415)ern z.B.

Lässt sich herausfinden, was da passiert ist (evtl. wurde ja ein Item damit angelegt, die Nummer aber später herausgelöscht, oder im anderen Extrem waren bereits die Ausgangsdaten nicht ganz komplett?) -- Gymel (talk) 19:53, 6 May 2015 (UTC)

Also, diese drei IDs sind nicht in meinem mix'n'match-Tool. Dazu muss gesagt werden, dass der Import da ein wenig "patchy" war. Das war ursprünglich nur DNB, dann "ODNB bis XXXX", dann kamen noch ein paar Updates dazu. Dan kann durchaus was unter den Tisch gefallen sein. Insgesamt habe ich 57591 ODNB-Einträge in mix'n'match; ODNB sagt 59453, fehlen also 1862. Hast Du 'ne Idee, wie ich die bekommen könnte, onhe die ganze ODNB wieder scrapen zu müssen? --Magnus Manske (talk) 22:56, 6 May 2015 (UTC)
Hm, die Nummern gehen bis über 77.000, da ist es doch keine gute Idee, gezielt die Lücken aufzusuchen, das müssten dann ja fast 20.000 Nummern sein (bzw. beziehen sich die 59.453 eigentlich auf Artikel oder auf Personen im Index? Wenn ersteres, dann würde ich davon ausgehen, dass tatsächlich eher 20.000 fehlen...). Gezielt könnte ich höchstens die oben erwähnten ca. 350 ODNB-Nummern beisteuern, die "bekannt, aber nachweislich hier nicht vorhanden" sind.
Es gab da übrigens noch ein methodisches Problem, vgl. User talk:Gymel#Historische Kommission als Quelle für GND bzw. konkret dort die Stelle, wo ich die "Kryptobiographien" als Ursache für das Chaos dingfest gemacht habe. Die Listungen auf Wikidata:Database reports/Constraint violations/P1415#"Single value" violations sind überwiegend auch zu dem Fall: ohne Zugang ist es oft objektiv unmöglich zu erkennen, welche Person wirklich gemeint ist. -- Gymel (talk) 23:47, 6 May 2015 (UTC)
OK: Sie betonen ständig, dass sie von 59.xxx Personen die Biographien haben. Und aus der Beschreibung des Index: "The Oxford Biography Index is a freely available index of notable people from British history: an authority file for people. It currently contains over 55,000 entries". D.h. die Nummern haben grosse Lücken (schlecht), und es fehlen deutlich weniger als 2.000 hier (gut), wobei 500 evtl. vom auch separat indexierten 2015er-Update stammen, das Du möglicherweise noch nicht drin hast. -- Gymel (talk) 18:26, 7 May 2015 (UTC)

Reasonator for first names[edit]

Hi Magnus,

For given name items, would it be possible to display the language next to the other items listed with property said to be the same as (P460)? Sample: Andrew (Q18042461) would include "Polish" (P407) after Andrzej (Q14941830)? A definition for "given name" could be: claim[31:202444,31:11879590,31:12308941,31:3409032]

Other than that, I think it works well for given names. Well, I still need to find a way to list them by language. --- Jura 16:15, 8 May 2015 (UTC)

Try it now. May have to force-reload once. --Magnus Manske (talk) 19:51, 8 May 2015 (UTC)
The languages section looks good. There are just a few glitches: on Sylvain P1533 and P1533 disappeared and the list is hardcoded to Andrew.
Q4925304 should have the name days and the distribution map. --- Jura 22:28, 8 May 2015 (UTC)
Argh! Fixed. Now: sleep. --Magnus Manske (talk) 23:06, 8 May 2015 (UTC)
These pages start looking good, thanks! Here the map doesn't display. --- Jura 23:12, 8 May 2015 (UTC)
Works now. Thanks. Given that the interwikis are spread over the various variants, I wonder if we wouldn't want to include them in the languages table as well, as a third column. two-letter codes would probably be sufficient. --- Jura 08:38, 9 May 2015 (UTC)
BTW for P1888, you might want to use quarry:3152 (the more frequent, the more likely). --- Jura 07:55, 16 May 2015 (UTC)

Lexikon deutschsprachiger Epik und Dramatik von Autorinnen 1700–1900[edit]

Hallo Magnus, kannst du mal einen Blick auf Anna Maria Schwendendörffer (Q18916655) werfen? Lt. deiner Quelle wurde die geistliche Dichterin 1673 geboren. GND 104122129 nennt 1673 als Sterbejahr, und um die Verwirrung perfekt zu machen, kennt der Gesamtkatalog deutschsprachiger Leichenpredigten (GESA) auch noch eine Anna Maria Schwendendörffer (gest. 1637). --Kolja21 (talk) 21:19, 19 May 2015 (UTC)
