Albrecht Dürer[edit]

Hi Multichill, there is an item for him at Q5580. No need to make multiple ones [1].
--- Jura 17:08, 8 April 2018 (UTC)

hello Multichill ! I also merged quite a bunch of duplicates, created by your bot (see most of those from webumania. Was there a problem with M'n'M ? --Hsarrazin (talk) 08:58, 11 April 2018 (UTC)
That's where Albrecht Dürer came from. It just seemed to be the most obvious tip of the iceberg. np.
--- Jura 16:36, 11 April 2018 (UTC)
That import seems to have given some more and some unexpected duplicates. Probably a combination of records missing, not yet matched records and me firing up the bot too early. I'll do some more merging. Multichill (talk) 10:00, 11 April 2018 (UTC)
there is an easy list of merges to do (with checking first of course) here, because of Webumenia creator ID (P4887) matched by user:Spinster ;) --Hsarrazin (talk) 15:35, 11 April 2018 (UTC)
OK, most of them merged now... even if the report is slow to update ^^ --Hsarrazin (talk) 14:20, 12 April 2018 (UTC)
More show up at Wikidata:WikiProject Visual arts/Artists same name. Thanks for any help to clean the recent and older dupe mess! --Marsupium (talk) 21:09, 24 April 2018 (UTC)
What does "too early" mean? Why does the bot do what M'n'm is for at all? The bot doesn't properly check for items yet existing before creating new ones and should better leave this to humans entirely then. --Marsupium (talk) 21:20, 24 April 2018 (UTC)

Yale University Art Gallery import[edit]

Hi and thanks for doing this useful import with your bot. I know this has been raised before and you're probably working on it, but I've stumbled into some items where the final character of the name was missing, from both the label and the title field. See the histories of Peonies and Narcissus (Q49358981), Lotuses (Q49358870) and Chrysanthemums (Q49359092). I haven't looked at how many more there are. Best wishes, MartinPoulter (talk) 12:44, 20 April 2018 (UTC)

@MartinPoulter: yes, had a problem in a regex that ate up the last character for some of the imports. You might be able to find a couple more on the subpages of Wikidata:WikiProject sum of all paintings/Collection/Yale University Art Gallery, but some of them are quite hard to spot.

Please slow down[edit]

Hi Multichill, your bot is editing to fast at the moment and we have ongoing dispatch lag, can you make sure it goes down well under 30 edits per minute? Cheers, Hoo man (talk) 16:45, 27 April 2018 (UTC)

I doubt my single bot is causing dispatch lag and under 30 edits per minute is extremely slow. Maybe you should provide a proper solution to phab:T184948 instead of the current hack?
Are you folks even working on fixing the underlying problems? The software/infrastructure needs to be scaled up so it can handle the current amount of edits. Multichill (talk) 19:01, 28 April 2018 (UTC)

Mosaics report like Wikidata:WikiProject sum of all paintings/Possible paintings[edit]

Hey! I would like to do some work to populate our coverage of Mosaics -- and have noticed that both on Commons and on other Wikis there are a number of mosaics described in categories, but we haven't added the correct class to them. Could you run a report similar to Wikidata:WikiProject sum of all paintings/Possible paintings for Category:Mosaic (Q7468592)? Sadads (talk) 14:03, 9 May 2018 (UTC)

Thanks for fixing the Category:Mosaic (Q7468592) edit -- must have accidently hit something to cause that. Sadads (talk) 14:09, 9 May 2018 (UTC)
You can fork if you like. Multichill (talk) 14:19, 9 May 2018 (UTC)
I wouldn't know how to run that -- I have never operated a bot or python script, and wouldn't know where to start. I am happy to help write/populate a series of regex or petscan queries-- which this seems to be taking advantage of -- or I could try to learn the script bits, but would need some guidance on how to get started.

Addition of death details to the wrong item[edit]

Hi there, your bot added incorrect death details to Carlo Bonomi referenced from data, but it is clearly the wrong person. Please ensure that you use date of birth, occupation or something to ensure you only add details to the correct item. How can you check you haven't made other similar mistakes? The-Pope (talk) 15:28, 9 May 2018 (UTC)

@The-Pope: someone (user:LongLiveRock) made the wrong match in Mix'n'match. The chance of this being found without the bot adding additional (wrong) information would have been extremely small. It's better to have it go completely wrong, so it gets noticed and the original mistake can be fixed. So no, I can't ensure it will be the correct item and no I can't check if the bot did similar things. This is not a bug, this is a feature. In case you run into something like this in the future:
  1. search for the person in mix'n'match and remove or replace the wrong matches (replace with Carlo Bonomi (Q27825154) in this case))
  2. Remove the incorrect link and other incorrect data
  3. Maybe inform the user who made the incorrect match of the mistake (this case the user doesn't appear to be active anymore)
Happy editing. Also @Pichpich: see above. That will work much better than to just undo the edit.
If this is a bit too complicated or too much work, at least try to add the link to the right item. This way it will show up on User:Magnus Manske/Mix'n'match report/13. Multichill (talk) 15:55, 9 May 2018 (UTC)

WikiProject sum of all paintings[edit]

Guten Tag,

ich erstelle gerade Werkverzeichnisse für Wikipedia.

Wäre es möglich die bots mit mehr Informationen suchen zu lassen:

1) Name (artist) // Name Werk // Enstehungsjahr // Größe des Gemäldes (cm x cm) // Technik // usw... ?


Und könnten die bots auch Graphic, Zeichnungen, Sculpure suchen ?

auf Antwort würde ich mich freuen.
