Hi Moebeus - thanks for the edit summary note; 'nomen invalidum' was actually my first choice, but it left an exclamation mark saying I had to chose something from an approved list of reasons. Of the ones on that list, 'identifier not suitable for entity' was the only one that appeared close to suitable. Any better suggestions would be welcome, please! - ~~~~

Moebeus (talkcontribs)

ah, I see!

Without knowing much about the subject, one thing you can do is add "nomen invalidum" to that list yourself, to get rid of the constraint warning. The list is just as editable as anything else on Wikidata, if you think it belongs there, you should feel free to add it.

Thanks! I'll think about that, but would rather leave it to someone with better experience of wikidata proceedures than I do. I find the whole methodology here extraordinarily obscure.

Moebeus (talkcontribs)

If you stick around and keep editing it will hopefully start to make more sense. Speaking for myself, it certainly took a while before it finally "clicked" :) And just know that being reverted is nothing personal, it's just part of of the process. I had a hard time getting used to that, not gonna lie.

If these kind of edit are wrong we must consider:

  1. to move this values into right item (if they don't exist in the item)
  2. revert the whole batch

I can do especially the first thing manual with tool, but after my block.

Moebeus (talkcontribs)

Hi there! Thank you for reaching out.

It sounds to me like the best action is to revert the batch and then do a query to see what items aren't already covered by existing track lists. For songs not already covered we can then create tracks and link them the proper way. We can work together on this if you want (after your block).

Hello, Moebeus! You are replacing P495 with P291 - it is a huge change. Where has it been discussed? Should it be changed for all types of works? Books, films? Why? What it should be for unpublished works?

Moebeus (talkcontribs)

Hi there!

I only work with music so I don't model books or films. For albums the logical property to use is "place of publication" (they are publications), while record labels use "country", artists have "country of citizenship" and bands have "country of origin. Together these properties should answer most queries I think. The standardization affects less than 10% of the albums we have, many of which used both properties, so I wouldn't call it a huge change.
