Thanks for your understanding. I'm working on a project that uses data from Wikidata and I am improving items in English and Spanish. I'll check those references.  – The preceding unsigned comment was added by Corso (talk • contribs) at 16:31, 5 May 2016 (UTC).

BMC Racing Team/2017[edit]

Hoi Multichill, (ik doe het gewoon in het Nederlands hoor) jouw bot heeft van BMC Racing Team/2017 (op nl:) een wikidata item 'gemaakt' (No label defined (Q39336210). Nu bestaat ook het item BMC Racing 2017 (Q28024887) (met en: + fr: link). Zie je kans om nl: hierbij tevoegen. (Heb hier zelf geen idee van hoe -of wat-). Hopende dat het jouw wel lukt, mvg.

PS, is inmiddels op 14 september (07:24) door FakirNL uitgevoerd (geen idee of dat vanwege dit bericht hier is gebeurd, zo ja: bedankt daarvoor)

Label shouldn't be used for disambiguation[edit]

Then, what should be? --Taterian (talk) 16:27, 20 September 2017 (UTC)

@Taterian: you are probably looking for Help:Label and Help:Description. Multichill (talk) 16:40, 20 September 2017 (UTC)
@Multichill: actually I was looking for a good man. --Taterian (talk) 16:45, 20 September 2017 (UTC)

no label (Q30055932)[edit]

Deze was in mei aangemaakt door je bot - moet zijn het bekende Vermeer The Milkmaid (Q167605), maar gewoon op naam van de Haarlemmer. Ik zie dat de id nummers zijn DSK-A-2344 en SK-A-2344. Hopelijk zijn er niet meer van deze creator/titel/id verwarringen aangemaakt! Jane023 (talk) 19:28, 22 September 2017 (UTC)

Altijd leuk dat vandalisme. Kan worden samengevoegd..... Multichill (talk) 19:37, 22 September 2017 (UTC)
Pfff - dit zijn helaas wel bekenden die dit doen, geen buitenstaanders denk ik, want veel te geniepig. Bleh. Jane023 (talk) 19:56, 22 September 2017 (UTC)

Consider drop vote-keeping number of platform tracks (P1103)?[edit]

This property has key concept leak, many concepts of platforms (not only time-or-history-related!) are mixed up by this property, so keeping it will only make hurts to WikiProject Trains (Q53051).

As a simple example: Changhua Station (Q5071979) has only one track between platform 1 and platform 2 (as again, Spanish solution (Q1342434)), so the de-facto value "5" is logical wrong. Then how can you define the real "number of platform-somethings"? --Liuxinyu970226 (talk) 22:47, 22 September 2017 (UTC)

pywikibot - setRank/changeRank[edit]

Hi multichill,

first of all I want to thank you for your help with my pywikibot / claim issue - thanks! It works fine and I made good progress with my bot. Unfortunately I ran into another issue when trying to set the rank of a given claim (in my case I want to set the latest value to "preferred") which I could not resolve so far - maybe you have an idea.

I checked the API doc of pywikibot ( and found two approaches, namely




My first appraoch is to set the rank of the claim before adding it to the item

claim = pywikibot.Claim(repo, _ALEXA_RANKING_PROPERTY_IDENTIFIER)
target = pywikibot.WbQuantity(alexa_ranking,site=site)	
item.addClaim(alexa_ranking_claim, summary=u'Updating Alexa ranking')

While the claim itselfs gets added and shows up on the respective Wikidata Object page the desired rank of "preferred" is not taken into account, instead the "normal" (I guess the default or fallback) rank is shown.

My second approach is to change the rank of the claim after it has been added to the item, using

item.addClaim(alexa_ranking_claim, summary=u'Updating Alexa ranking')

This way the claim itself gets added, however the call to


results in an Exception with an empty Excpetion message

print(exception) -> ""

I am running out of ideas and therefore would like to ask you if you have a hint where my error is or how to set the rank of a certain claim to "preferred". Thanks for your input! --Tozibb (talk) 19:31, 12 October 2017 (UTC)
