Climate change[edit]

Old heading: how to go about getting wikidata or wikipedia to coordinate the efforts of all of humanity to combat climate change and the general degradation of the planet.

In order to combat climate heating, the first thing necessary is to have one central place to coordinate all the activities of humanity, to categorize everything in different areas to make it easy for people to see what, where, who, how, what do they need, in all the different projects going on in the world. I believe it would be a great honor to be the one website on the web to do this, it would bring in tons of donations, could have lots of volunteers, and best, it could help save us from climate tragedy. wikipedia or wikidata would be the best choice in my opinion and in lots of ways it fits into your vision. so this would be an addition or extension of wikipedia or wikidata. without coordination and organizing, all of humanity's efforts probably won't be sufficient. Its an incredible opportunity to begin the unification of humanity and to help coordinate humanity. I hope that you give it some serious consideration.  – The preceding unsigned comment was added by Mofwoofoo (talk • contribs) at 23:21, 1 December 2018‎ (UTC).

Structured Data - file captions coming this week (January 2019)[edit]

My apologies if this is a duplicate message for you, it is being sent to multiple lists which you may be signed up for.

Hi all, following up on last month's announcement...

Multilingual file captions will be released this week, on either Wednesday, 9 January or Thursday, 10 January 2019. Captions are a feature to add short, translatable descriptions to files. Here's some links you might want to look follow before the release, if you haven't already:

  1. Read over the help page for using captions - I wrote the page on because captions are available for any MediaWiki user, feel free to host/modify a copy of the page here on Commons.
  2. Test out using captions on Beta Commons.
  3. Leave feedback about the test on the captions test talk page, if you have anything you'd like to say prior to release.

Additionally, there will be an IRC office hour on Thursday, 10 January with the Structured Data team to talk about file captions, as well as anything else the community may be interested in. Date/time conversion, as well as a link to join, are on Meta.

Thanks for your time, I look forward to seeing those who can make it to the IRC office hour on Thursday. -- Keegan (WMF) (talk) 21:09, 7 January 2019 (UTC)

Jura1 fake item - descriptive item used as unit[edit]


"descriptive item used as unit (Q22302160)"

What do you think about removing it from Q5? Q5 is highly used and this Jura1-claim makes Wikidata look silly. No reliable source found. Probably pure fake.

Sure, "group of organisms known by one particular common name" looks like fake too. 16:11, 19 January 2019 (UTC)
