Hi Magnus, Is it possible to set another default entry type for Mix n match? I uploaded a set of MeSH terms specifically within the "Pathological Conditions, Signs and Symptoms" branch (794 items). A lot already exist in Wikidata as either instance of disease (Q12136) or symptom (Q169872). Should I split up the entries in two? Or can you add symptom (Q169872) as a default type? Thanks!

Mix-n-match multiple default Entry types?
Each entry can have one and only one type. You have set them all to Q12136 (disease). I have now switched them all to Q2057971 ("health problem"), which encompasses all other types. Re-running automatch now.
Autorun QuickStatements 2?
Hi Magnus! Maybe it already exists, but I can't find it. Is there a URL parameter I can pass to QuickStatements 2 to make it run automatically? I've made a Python script that automatically opens a tab with the settings I need (to create a surname element), but I still have to go to that tab and click Run. I'd be very grateful if that could be added. :-)
Click on "Import commands/Version 1", the text above the edit box contains instructions to create a URL.
Yes, that's what I've done, and that's working perfectly. But I'm wondering if it's possible to also have a URL parameter like &run=run so I don't need to click the "Run" button manually?
I did shy away from that, otherwise pranksters or vandals could provide links (e.g. via URL shortener) to have you make edits on Wikidata. I think it works on V1, but I'm hesitant to implement it in V2.
If you run on Labs, you could write a PHP wrapper script and edit as your own bot, see the start comment here.
Oh yeah, that's a good point, I didn't think of the possibility for abuse. The PHP wrapper thing seems like a good option, but looks too advanced for me at the moment. (But maybe later, you never know.) Anyways, thank you! :-)
Warum ist der Bot schon seit ein paar Monaten nicht mehr auf Wikidata:WikiProject Chess/Lists/IM vorbeigekommen?
Der Bot bekommt scheinbar einen TIMEOUT von WDQS. Was komisch ist, denn die query läuft manuell sehr schnell. Ich gucke mal...
OK, es sind "nur" ~3K items, aber die sind z.T. riesig. Dem Bot geht schlicht der Speicher aus (4GB RAM; PHP's a pig for memory...)
Und wie kann man das lösen?
Es darf doch nicht sein, dass das Problem nur die Größe der Items ist? Die besagten Items sind noch nichtmal im Endausbau, und auf lange Sicht werden viele oder praktisch alle Items sehr groß. Dann würde der Bot ja gar nicht mehr funktionieren?!
Jemand baut an "nativen Listen" in Wikipedia. Der Bot ist nur eine stop-gap-measure, wird nicht weiter entwickelt, und wird hoffentlich noch dieses Jahr überflüssig ;-)
Language preferences Wikidata distributed game
I sometimes work with the Wikidata distributed game, but for quite some time now I noticed that the language settings are not working correctly, or at least not as I would expect them to work. I can set the language settings and they work, but if I then do a reload of the page for whatever reason, it is always set back to just English.
The problem seems to have been resolved, thank you!
Database of Classical Scholars
Hello Magnus, I noticed that you created some new items for the DBCS (as well as HAdW). Thank you very much! I hope that doesn't mean extra work for you. Do you use some sort of script to detect new database entries, and to create new Wikidata items for them?
The DBCS has deleted (or at least, emptied) six duplicate entries in their database: 682, 1011, 1013, 1017, 1218, 1221. Is there some way to delete those IDs from mix'n'match as well?
Hope you're doing well. I'm five weeks away from submitting my thesis, so I shouldn't even be typing here. But it's hard to let go of Wikipedia stuff.
All the best!
Yes, there is now an auto-update script for both DBCS and HAdW , but it "only" adds new entries to Mix'n'match, it obviously can't create new Wikidata items, as they may already exist. Which is the whole point of Mix'n'match...
For deleted entries, you can just mark them as "N/A" (not applicable) in Mix'n'match, that will deactivate them.
Best of luck with your thesis!
GRID Mix n' Match list no longer relevant
We're pulling in all the remaining unmatched GRID institutions via a bot (see Wikidata:Requests for permissions/Bot/APSbot 3), so the GRID list (Catalog 309) in Mix n' Match is no longer relevant and can be removed. It's also based on an old version of the database and there have been some merged id's since then so it may add no-longer-valid identifiers if people continue to use it. So if possible I'd prefer for it to be removed form Mix n Match. Thanks!
309 has been deactivated.
Catalog for Akademie der Künste
Is it adding P463 (member of) Q414110 (Akademie der Künste) ?
What is doing it then? Perhaps I don't understand well the mix-n-match...
Is it possible to add this property?
Mix'n'match needs a specific property, it doesn't do generic "member of". You can suggest a new property, and I can link it up with Mix'n'match once it is created.
mix-n-match catalog for RANM (P3945)
Hi Magnus. Sorry to bother you with another request. Could you please create a catalog for this property RANM (P3945) ? I've got the list here if it helps https://es.wikipedia.org/wiki/Usuario:Gerwoman/RANM
Quickstatements 2 - Batch mode not working
since a few days is the Batch-Mode of Quickstatements 2 not working anymore.
The normal mode is working for me.
Thanks very much, the Tool is just great.
Restarted, try it now.
It Works, thanks very much
Is there a help file for Quick Statements? What does it do and how does it work? ~~~~
I will rewrite the QuickStatements (V2) interface in the near future, and include the manual better.
