Welcome to Wikidata, Mahir256!

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.
  • User options – including the 'Babel' extension, to set your language preferences.
  • Contents – The main help page for editing and using the site.
  • Project chat – Discussions about the project.
  • Tools – A collection of user-developed tools to allow for easier completion of some tasks.

Please remember to sign your messages on talk pages by typing four tildes (~~~~); this will automatically insert your username and the date.

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.

category's main topic (P301)[edit]

Could you please explain the change you’ve recently made to the category's main topic (P301) property’s English description? To note is that as per, U+2019 is the preferred character for apostrophe. TIA. — Ivan Shmakov (dc) 17:33, 6 November 2013 (UTC)

This was for ease of use: on most machines the apostrophe I used would be more easily input. U+2019 isn't directly accessible on a standard keyboard unless you changed keybindings slightly (which should not be assumed). Mahir256 (talk) 01:22, 7 November 2013 (UTC)


Please take a look at WD:WS. Many of the sitelinks you now added to Universal Declaration of Human Rights (Q7813), should not have been added there! -- Lavallen (talk) 06:11, 3 March 2014 (UTC)

I can perhaps see the point of disambiguating the Swedish versions, hence why I left them alone, but the document itself, binding as it is in UN matters, has not changed in many of the languages for which there were 'editions'. Frankly, I would consider versions of a text differing only in language as the same unless a major alteration separates them (e.g. Lex Mahumet pseudoprophete vs. Mark of Toledo's translation—the former would go in Lex Mahumet pseudoprophete (Q3237327) while the latter would fit in Quran (Q428)). I therefore stand by my edits owing to the same information being transmitted with little variation in each Wikisource page. Mahir256 (talk) 06:21, 3 March 2014 (UTC)
Well, they do not have the same language, do they? Then, they are not the same editions. They cannot posses the same metadata, they cannot share the same properties! -- Lavallen (talk) 06:41, 3 March 2014 (UTC)
If you believe that every language version of a document deserves its own Wikidata entry, then you ought to take the head start and begin clocking out items right now! The idea of "Wikisource pages linked to this item" implies that each language has its version of the same text carrying the same information and thus should be grouped together. See, for instance, Al-Fatiha (Q219669) or Sonnet 1 (Q643664): it would be absolutely tedious to create individual entries for all 154 sonnets and all 114 surahs in all of the languages for which there are translations! You don't see multiple Commons entries for a particular work, do you? No—there is only one Commons containing everything in every language! There should be as many Wikisource entries as there can be for a particular page unless there are multiple versions of it—which is exactly why I left the Swedish editions of the UDHR intact. (Notice that I didn't add English or French Quranic translations to the respective entries, since there are multiple versions.) Mahir256 (talk) 15:51, 3 March 2014 (UTC)
What I believe is irrelevant. It's the consequence of what the community have agreed and documented on Wikidata:Wikisource. Commons have it's own guideline at Wikidata:Wikimedia Commons, and it has also evolved from what the community have agreed. Yes, it's tedious, it already is, but I believe we have to follow this road to keep the integrity of the database for our texts. Interwiki is still possible to make with this method, but through tools in Phase 2 instead of Phase 1, who Wikipedia uses. Billinghurst describe our approach very well here.
And thanks for the finding of all these ogg-files, it's great. -- Lavallen (talk) 16:45, 3 March 2014 (UTC)
You're welcome for the Vorbis files, but you might have to add them to their respective edition items and take them off the main item. Since the situation is so hectic right now, I'll just cease editing the page. Mahir256 (talk) 17:07, 3 March 2014 (UTC)
Don't worry, I understand your frustration. This isn't simple. -- Lavallen (talk) 18:23, 3 March 2014 (UTC)

Merging items[edit]

Hallo Mahir256,

For merging items, you may want to use the merge.js gadget from help page about merging. It has an option "Request deletion for extra items on RfD" to automatically place a request to delete the emptied page. This way of nominating makes it a lot easier for the admins to process the requests.

With regards,

Hindi wiki items[edit]

Hello, I read about your concern regarding year item on hindi wiki. Here is what I suggest; see User:Byrial/numbermerge. Byrial used some code to generate lists from (database dumps) of similar numbers between pair of two wikis. If you are well versed with the code then you can do the same. I don't know how to run the code but I think it would be much convenient. Just a suggestion.--Vyom25 (talk) 07:36, 9 September 2014 (UTC)

And you may use "merge.js" to create a redirect, so that doing a request for deletion is not possible. If you find an easy way to do mass merges, please ping me. I know the problem.... Lymantria (talk) 05:37, 10 September 2014 (UTC)


Just to let you know that all roads must be claimed as instance of (P31) = road (Q34442). This is according to the road project here: [1]. Danrok (talk) 20:59, 12 November 2015 (UTC)

So it isn't enough that French autoroute (Q3456602) is a subclass of controlled-access highway (Q46622), which is a subclass of road (Q34442)? Mahir256 (talk) 21:01, 12 November 2015 (UTC)
If you need to know more, you'll need to ask on the project's pages, or User:Rschen7754 who has been working on roads for sometime. Danrok (talk) 21:07, 12 November 2015 (UTC)

follows (P155) & followed by (P156)[edit]

Thank you for your work Mahir256. To fill items for stages, I give you the link fr:Modèle:Infobox Étape. follows (P155) & followed by (P156) are not qualifiers. Jérémy-Günther-Heinz Jähnick (talk) 12:27, 29 November 2015 (UTC)

Duplicate marathon timestamps[edit]

Hi, I see you recently added a bunch of point in time (P585) values to marathon items. I appreciate the effort, however a bunch of these items already had the exact same timestamp, which means they now have duplicate claims. See for example 2015 Amsterdam Marathon (Q21329138). There are too many items to undo manually, so I'm wondering if you can fix it. Regards, Wikidatist (talk) 11:32, 1 January 2016 (UTC)

Wikidata:Database reports/Wikipedia versions[edit]

Dear Mahir25; I have seen you contributing to a lot at pages linked to (as for today titled Wikipedia versions but intended in general for WMF projects). I would be happy if you can review the properties of these pages, create the missing Wikibook and Wikiversity project pages, comment on user:I18n/sandbox (where you may find many usefull queries) and comment there with new / additional ideas. Best regards Gangleri also aka I18n (talk) 16:02, 9 January 2016 (UTC)

Hi! I want to let you know that the number of Wikidata:Database reports/WMF projects has increased to more then 385. You may be interested in adding labels and descriptions in other anguages, follow the discussion at property talk:P1800 and comment there. Best regards Gangleri also aka I18n (talk) 02:59, 12 January 2016 (UTC)

Please see also: m:Talk:Facebook pages. I added more property related queries at user:I18n/sandbox#property_Wikimedia_database_name. I18n (talk) 20:04, 16 January 2016 (UTC)

Hijiri years[edit]

Rather than instance of (P31) year (Q577), I suggest the more specific Hijri year (Q4146861) for Islamic calendar (Q28892) years. Thanks for your work!! Runner1928 (talk) 01:53, 1 February 2016 (UTC)

2015 Tour de Luxembourg, Prologue (Q20035570)[edit]

Hi Mahir256. I work on cyclist, and I see today that you use a little program to make the classification of 115 cyclists on 2015 Tour de Luxembourg, Prologue (Q20035570) in only five minutes. Can you give me more informations about this program ? I am interested because we are working in group to use datas from Wikidata in articles of different languages. We already do tables for listing stages, table for listing palmares of a race, and we are working on a common infobox and a team roster table, thanks to the German Molarus and the Latvian Papuass.

I see you speak bengali, can you add translations in bengali to Module:Cycling race (after line 837) ? This will permit to share the program on BN Wiki when it will be necessary. When all the program will be done, we will become able to share all the datas we enter on Wikidata with only one program and its functions. Jérémy-Günther-Heinz Jähnick (talk) 14:05, 11 February 2016 (UTC)

I will admit that I just found the ProCyclingStats page for that particular stage, seeing as there were a few rankings in the item already, and then just added the rest manually using this tool. At the moment values for ProCyclingStats cyclist ID (P1663) have the constraint of being numeric, and the stats pages generally just use cyclists' names in their hyperlinks, so reconciling the two will surely be a challenge. Mahir256 (talk) 18:43, 11 February 2016 (UTC)
Hi. Since few monthes, Module:Cycling race has well evolved. If you are interested, we can work together to adapt ad to the bg Wiki. Jérémy-Günther-Heinz Jähnick (talk) 13:04, 30 May 2016 (UTC)

RC flood[edit]

You're flooding the recent changes with your current rapid edits. Please use a flood flag or bot flag for large amounts of edits. --Yair rand (talk) 02:58, 1 March 2016 (UTC)

While I contend that I'm not the only non-bot-user that does this, I would imagine that something like WiDaR would end up throttling floods of edits anyway, as I have seen it slow down on several occasions with other mass edits of mine. If there is anyway to reconfigure WiDaR to set the flood flag by defauly, I will be happy to look into it. Mahir256 (talk) 03:03, 1 March 2016 (UTC)

quick_statements ব্যবহার[edit]

এই সরঞ্জামটি কিভাবে ব্যবহার করতে হয় একটু বলবেন কি? আমি বাংলার জন্য লেভেল, বিবরণ, বিবৃতি ইত্যাদি যোগ করতে চাচ্ছি। First column are articles from অংশে কি লিখতে হবে? এর নিচের ইনপুট বাক্সে লেভেল, বিবরণ, বিবৃতি ইত্যাদি যোগ করতে কি ইনপুট দিতে হবে একটু বলবেন কি? সবচেয়ে ভালো হয় একটা স্ক্রিনশর্ট দিলে। ধন্যবাদ। --Aftabuzzaman (talk) 16:11, 7 June 2016 (UTC)

@Aftabuzzaman: আচ্ছা, প্রথমত দেকতে হবেন যদি আইটেমগুলো সম্পাদনা করতে চান নাম দিয়ে বা নম্বর দিয়ে ("নোয়াখালী জেলা" বা "Q68585")। যদি সব নিবন্ধের নাম জানেন, যে উইকিতে তারা থাকে লিখেন "First column are articles from"এ (উদাহরণ: "bnwiki" বাংলা উইকিপিডিয়ার জন্য)। ঐ বাক্সটা খালি রাখেন যদি আইটেমের নম্বর শুধু জানেন (বা যদি নতুন আইটেম সৃষ্টি করতে চান)।
তারপরে বিবরণ দিতে হবে আপনার। এখানে দেখেন। আশা করি যে সহজ হয় এখন। Mahir256 (talk) 17:01, 7 June 2016 (UTC)
বাক্সে কি লিখতে হবে তা বুঝেছি কিন্তু কাজ হচ্ছে না। ঠিক ধরতে পারছি না কোথায় ভুল করছি। আপনি কষ্ট করে এই অনুচ্ছেদ আপনার দেয়া স্ক্রিনশটের প্রথম ছবির মত কমান্ডগুলি লিখে দিতে পারবেন? (TAB সহ, তীর ছাড়া; বাক্সে যা লিখতে হবে তার হুবহু) Aftabuzzaman (talk) 19:28, 7 June 2016 (UTC)
@Aftabuzzaman: এখানে দেখেন। সাবধান! ভাষার কোড বদলাতে হবে যদি ইংরেজি চান না (উদাহরণ: en -> bn)। আর কত কিছু আছে যেটা আপনার দেকতে হবে (উদাহরণ: সময়গুলো এটার মতন দেকতে হবে: +1971-03-26T00:00:00Z/11 যেখানে '/11' মানে দিনের স্পষ্টতা, '/10' মানে মাসের স্পষ্টতা, আর '/9' মানে বছরের স্পষ্টতা।) Mahir256 (talk) 19:51, 7 June 2016 (UTC)

অনেক দিন বাংলা উইকিসংকলনে আপনাকে দেখতে পাই না। কিছু কি সমস্যা হয়েছে? বাংলা উইকিসংকলনকে এগিয়ে নিয়ে যাওয়ার ক্ষেত্রে আপনার অবদানের কোন তুলনা হয় না। আপনি আবার ফেরত এলে সকলের খুব ভালো লাগবে, প্রকল্পটিও লাভবান হবে। আপনার উত্তরের অপেক্ষায় রইলাম। ভালো থাকবেন। -- Bodhisattwa (talk) 10:15, 30 July 2016 (UTC)

What are you doing?[edit]

Why did you remove two valid statements? Multichill (talk) 21:49, 1 December 2016 (UTC)

Ok, I reviewed your edits. You seem to be making a complete mess. Please stop right now. Multichill (talk) 21:51, 1 December 2016 (UTC)
@Multichill: I was trying to satisfy the requirement of followed by (P156) that it be a qualifier. Mahir256 (talk) 21:57, 1 December 2016 (UTC)
Please stop right now or I'll doing the stopping for you. Multichill (talk) 22:00, 1 December 2016 (UTC)
@Multichill: Fine, I have stopped. Is there a reason why follows (P155) and followed by (P156) should be kept as a statement rather than as a qualifier, despite the conclusions reached here? Mahir256 (talk) 22:03, 1 December 2016 (UTC)
You know you're modelling is wrong when you start adding qualifiers to instance of (P31). Multichill (talk) 22:09, 1 December 2016 (UTC)
@Multichill: Then explain why {{Constraint:Qualifiers|list={{P|460}}, {{P|642}}, {{P|580}}, {{P|361}}, {{P|582}}, {{P|2315}}, {{P|155}}, {{P|156}} }} (note the last two P tags) is present in Property talk:P31. (Not trying to be antagonistic, I'm just trying to conform to how the properties are said to be used at the moment.) With respect to using follows (P155)/followed by (P156) as a qualifier, @Jon Harald Søby, Jklamo, Diwas, Yair rand: With respect to using P155/P156 with P31, @Zolo, Pasleim: Mahir256 (talk) 22:18, 1 December 2016 (UTC)
@Multichill: My question still stands, though another explanation of my actions is definitely in order.

For something like "1 January", one is very likely to say that it follows "31 December" and is followed by "2 January", so I understand where you may feel I am in the wrong. Yet this is only with respect to being a "determinator for date of periodic occurrence" (or more specifically a "Gregorian calendar date", though this item doesn't exist yet). If there were, say, an item "first of the month" (which may in principle exist), then it would follow "1 December" and be followed by "1 February".

To use an example with fewer hypotheticals, consider "1 January 2016". It does follow "31 December 2015" and "2 January 2016", but only with respect to being a "calendar date". As a "January 1", it follows "1 January 2015" and will be followed by "1 January 2017". As a "Friday", it follows "25 December 2015" and is followed by "8 January 2016". (As a "first of the month", it would follow "1 December 2015" and be followed by "1 February 2016".) See how this date follows and is followed by so many others with respect to so many different criteria? To detach its ordering in the sequence from what this is with respect to (by not having P155 or P156 as qualifiers to P31) seems somewhat disingenuous.

This is the same principle that guides the qualifiers I put on the items for natural numbers, since they are instances of different number classes in different ordered sequences (e.g. 25 is natural, deficient, square, Friedman, odd, centered octagonal, centered octahedral, and centered square). I am sure that numerous other sequences (of recurring events, of calendar years, or of multiple series of texts, for example) may be rectified in exactly this same fashion.

I hope now you understand what I was trying to do, @Multichill: I am hesitant to continue contributing to the site until such an issue as this is resolved successfully. Mahir256 (talk) 17:34, 2 December 2016 (UTC)

Why did you removed the directly connecting line (P81)?[edit]

E.g. in Pingguoyuan Station (Q1039443), why? --Liuxinyu970226 (talk) 12:32, 2 February 2017 (UTC)

@Liuxinyu970226: I didn't think it appropriate to encode the connecting line (P81)s between two stations redundantly–as a statement and as a qualifier to adjacent station (P197). Because the former may be generated from the latter, I opted to keep the latter since it allows one to give more specific information with respect to each direction out of the station. (See my edits to Shenzhen Metro stations.) Mahir256 (talk) 17:07, 2 February 2017 (UTC)
But directly P81 can also describe that when a metro line service was open in that station, isn't that? --Liuxinyu970226 (talk) 23:45, 2 February 2017 (UTC)
@Liuxinyu970226: I imagine this (00:03 UTC: see my next comment) can be marked by setting a adjacent station (P197) with qualifying connecting line (P81) and end time (P582) and marking the claim as deprecated. (@Jc86035, Jc3s5h: please let me know if I am in the wrong.) Mahir256 (talk) 23:54, 2 February 2017 (UTC)
Looks like your end time (P582) is a typo because it's "end time", it should be start time (P580) "start time" with an actual time instead. --Liuxinyu970226 (talk) 23:56, 2 February 2017 (UTC)
@Liuxinyu970226: Then I misunderstood your question, as I thought you were asking how to mark a metro service that ceased to operate at that station. If you're referring to a current metro service, then perhaps attaching start time (P580) as a qualifier would work. (Of course, if multiple services between two adjacent stations started operating at different times, then you'd need to create multiple claims with different start time (P580)s.) Mahir256 (talk) 00:03, 3 February 2017 (UTC)
So in your suggestions, how to describe the Line 15, Beijing Subway (Q734917) stations:
  1. From Wangjing West Station (Q6125577) to Houshayu Station (Q5936980), opened service on 30 December 2010, however the Wangjing East Station (Q5940665) is opened after 6 years, on 31 December 2016;
  2. From Houshayu Station (Q5936980) to Fengbo Station (Q4392144), opened service on 31 December 2011;
  3. From Qinghuadongluxikou Station (Q15919571) to Wangjing West Station (Q6125577), opened service on 28 December 2014, however the Datunlu East Station (Q5227793) is opened on 26 December 2015
--Liuxinyu970226 (talk) 00:17, 3 February 2017 (UTC)
@Liuxinyu970226: In my view, Wangjing East station will have Wangjing and Cuigezhuang Stations as regular adjacent stations. For Wangjing and Cuigezhuang stations, they should be marked as adjacent stations of each other with an end time (P582) of 31 December 2016 and as deprecated claims, and then both have adjacent station Wangjing East with start time (P580) 31 December 2016. (All other qualifiers should be adjusted appropriately.) A similar situation will exist with Datunlu East and with Anlilu and Guanzhuang Stations. I insist that you solicit other ideas on this issue as it is possible there is a different consensus out there on how to handle this. Mahir256 (talk) 00:25, 3 February 2017 (UTC)
What's wrong with having connecting line (P81) redundantly? It'd be much easier to pull this from Wikipedias (once Wikidata is finally implemented in more infoboxes, anyway), and there's no harm in doing it. Jc86035 (talk) 07:13, 3 February 2017 (UTC)

বাংলা ভাষার ঘরে ইংরেজিতে দেয়া উপনাম সরানোর কাজে সাহায্য করুন[edit]

আশা করি ভালো আছেন। আপনি দেখে থাকবেন যে উইকিউপাত্তের আইটেমে সাধারণত স্ব-স্ব ভাষার ঘরে স্ব-স্ব ভাষায় উপনাম (alias) যোগ করা হয়। যেমন আরবি ভাষায় ঘরে আরবি হরফে উপনাম যোগ করা হয় (সামান্য কিছু ক্ষেত্রে ব্যতিক্রম ব্যতীত)। কিন্তু আমি দেখেছি অনেক আইটেমে যে সবে বাংলা উইকির sitelink আছে সেগুলির বাংলার জন্য দেয়া উপনামের ঘরে ইংরেজিতে উপনাম যোগ করা হয়েছে। এই কাজটি অনেক আগে একটি বট করেছে। বট শুধু বাংলায় নয় আরও বেশ কিছু অ-লাতিন ভাষার ক্ষেত্রে এই কাজ করেছিল। আমি এই মুহুর্তে বাংলা ভাষার ঘরে ইংরেজিতে দেয়া উপনাম সরানোর কাজ করছি। নিচের কোয়েরি ব্যবহার করে আমি বাংলা ভাষার ঘরে ইংরেজিতে দেয়া উপনাম বের করছি।

SELECT ?item ?alias {
  ?item ^schema:about/schema:isPartOf/^wdt:P856 wd:Q427715 .
  ?item skos:altLabel ?alias .
  FILTER( LANG( ?alias ) = 'bn' && REGEX( LCASE( STR( ?alias ) ), '[a-z]' ) ) .
} LIMIT 100 # আরও বেশী ফলাফল পেতে চাইলে সীমা ১০০ থেকে বাড়ান

Try it!

আমি এখন LabelLister ব্যবহার করে এই কাজটি করছি। এই কাজ একা করতে অনেক সময় লাগবে। তাই আমি আপনার সাহায্য চাইছি। বাংলা ভাষার ঘরে ইংরেজিতে দেয়া উপনাম সরানোর কাজে হাত লাগালে খুশি হব। ধন্যবাদ --Aftabuzzaman (talk) 20:34, 3 March 2017 (UTC)

@Aftabuzzaman: এই বিষয়ে দেখতে পাড়ি; ~৫৪০০০ উপনামগুলো ইংরেজি ভাষায় পেলাম ওই প্রশ্ন দিয়ে। অবশ্যই ওইগুলো সরাই যখন পাই কিন্তু নাম দেওয়া আমার প্রধান কাজ এখন; প্রায় দুই লক্ষর বেশি দিলাম এই বছরে--যদি কিছু ঠিক না হলে আমাকে বলুন। Mahir256 (talk) 21:35, 3 March 2017 (UTC)

Unapproved bot removing aliases[edit]

Hi Mahir256, you seem to be a bot that is not approved and that is destructive. Why are you mass removing useful aliases? I stopped the bot for now. Please have a look at Wikidata:Bots and apply at Wikidata:Requests for permissions/Bot. Multichill (talk) 10:11, 12 May 2017 (UTC)

@Multichill: Edits are understandable, it left only native-script labels: "ল্যুভ্র সংগ্রহালয়", "লুভ্র্‌", "লুভ্র্‌ যাদুঘর", "ল্যুভর জাদুঘর"
Help:Label isn't cleat whatever definitely keep non-native labels or to remove.
We only include non-native labels when they are actually in widespread use in non-native form: bicycle motocross (Q215184). d1g (talk) 16:16, 12 May 2017 (UTC)
Yes, @Multichill: d1g is right; my discussion with Aftabuzzaman above pertained to only removing aliases that were not in the Bengali script. (My bot did of course exclude non-Latin, non-Bengali aliases and items all of whose aliases are in Latin script, but I will approach those later.) Mahir256 (talk) 16:26, 12 May 2017 (UTC)
@Multichill: Excuse my English. Actually those edit aren't destructive. We are trying to remove non-Bengali aliases (except code, script etc) set in bn. Almost every alias already set in en, even after removing if you search using those you can find corresponding item. It isn't so useful having non bengali aliases in bn. --Aftabuzzaman (talk) 18:03, 12 May 2017 (UTC)
It's good to see you agree on the usefulness of this bot. That makes the approving process so much easier. Don't forget to fill out a request at Wikidata:Requests for permissions/Bot. Multichill (talk) 19:14, 12 May 2017 (UTC)

Liv and Maddie in Bangla[edit]

Can you give Liv and Maddie a label in Bangla please? 2602:306:83A9:3D00:BD30:4DFB:D269:D674 03:24, 13 June 2017 (UTC)

✓ Done Mahir256 (talk) 03:28, 13 June 2017 (UTC)
Can you help me write the following in Bangla?

Liv and Maddie, titled Liv and Maddie: Cali Style in its fourth season, is an American teen sitcom created by John D. Beck and Ron Hart that originally aired on Disney Channel from July 19, 2013 to March 24, 2017. The series stars Dove Cameron in a dual role as identical twin sisters with entirely different personalities, with Liv being a girly girl who was an actress in Hollywood for four years and Maddie being a tomboy with a facility for sports, particularly basketball. The series revolves around Liv readjusting to normal family life after production on her hit television program Sing It Loud! ended, as well as the two sisters being best friends despite their opposing personalities and different interests.

Thank you. 2602:306:83A9:3D00:BD30:4DFB:D269:D674 03:58, 13 June 2017 (UTC)

Now I feel you're asking for too much at once. Perhaps if you logged in and I could identify you as someone in particular and not as just some random IP address from who knows where, I'd be more inclined to take up your request. Mahir256 (talk) 04:00, 13 June 2017 (UTC)
OK, this is my account. I just forget to log in sometimes. Kkjj (talk) 04:28, 13 June 2017 (UTC)

──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── @Kkjj: With respect to the first sentence: ✓ Done. I will approach the rest of your text later. Mahir256 (talk) 05:04, 14 June 2017 (UTC)

Translation Request[edit]

Hi, I see from your profile you speak Bengali. I just have 1 request. How do you write "village in China"? Im planning to update descriptions in various languages and I am planning to update Bengali. Appreciate the translation. Thanks ahead. Also Tum kese hou? (learned it from a friend in college)

Regards MechQuester (talk) 03:10, 1 July 2017 (UTC)

@MechQuester: Wo3 hen3 hao3. If you look at the source of my userpage, you will see that I do not speak Hindi. :-)
Besides the point, I have on hold a massive attempt at assigning labels in Bengali to those villages. The attempt is on hold because 1) I'm trying to come up with a good transcription scheme into Bengali, as I'm disappointed in the ambiguities in the current recommended scheme and 2) there are ~2000 hanzi with more than one valid pronunciation, even after discounting tones, that came up when using the four sources of Mandarin pronunciations in the Unihan database. You can find both of those (my attempt at a transcription scheme and the multiple-pronunciation characters) here.
Anyway, back to your request. You may also want to ask Aftab about this, as Aftab has been working on descriptions more than I, but I'd say 'চীনে একটি গ্রাম'. Mahir256 (talk) 03:28, 1 July 2017 (UTC)
@MechQuester: It appears Emilio has beaten you to the task. Mahir256 (talk) 03:33, 1 July 2017 (UTC)
Looks like it. Thanks to both of you. As for translations, I'll also defer to you. MechQuester (talk) 03:36, 1 July 2017 (UTC)
@Mahir256, আপনি যদি বট দিয়ে অনুবাদ পরিবর্তন করার চিন্তা করেন, তাহলে "চীনে একটি গ্রাম" নয় "চীনে একটি গ্রাম" লিখুন, অর্থের ব্যত্যয় না ঘটলে বাংলায় "এ (ে)" থেকে "এর (ের)" বেশী ব্যবহার হয়। (আর আমি এই ব্যাপারে Emijrp কে জানিয়েছি, তবে চাইলে আপনি এখন করতে পারেন)। Aftabuzzaman (talk) 11:05, 1 July 2017 (UTC)
Hi @MechQuester: If you're planning to update descriptions in various languages you can change current Bengali translation, please use চীনের একটি গ্রাম. There is noting worng with current translation "চীনের গ্রাম", but yes চীনের একটি গ্রাম sound much better in bengali. --Aftabuzzaman (talk) 11:36, 1 July 2017 (UTC)

Hey guys. @Aftabuzzaman, Mahir256:, which one do you recommend me using?Thanks MechQuester (talk) 13:19, 1 July 2017 (UTC)

@MechQuester: চীনের একটি গ্রাম (example) --Aftabuzzaman (talk) 13:24, 1 July 2017 (UTC)
Thanks @Aftabuzzaman:. You the best. MechQuester (talk) 13:25, 1 July 2017 (UTC)

Your IP is located near New York City, where he lives? Interesting...Anyway, iIt used to be no label (Q30643546), as shown on his user page, before it got deleted. Maybe you could ask an admin to revive it if it is at all possible. Mahir256 (talk) 02:16, 10 August 2017 (UTC)

Re: Duplicate footballers[edit]

Was an error, i'm apologise. I'm importing to Wikidata a list of sportmen since It is assumed that none of this list was already on Wikidata... It is also possible that he is another sportsman with the same name (I know several cases). I will review all the items one by one.
