source for ORCID?[edit]

I think the identifiers for Q457312 might be wrong. Could you give me your source or comments on the talk page? Thanks, Masao (talk) 07:04, 11 September 2017 (UTC)

The citation is on the statement itself. Andy Mabbett (Pigsonthewing); Talk to Andy; Andy's edits 09:12, 11 September 2017 (UTC)
hmmm. How do you determine is the same person? This might be another person with the same name. --Masao (talk) 14:32, 11 September 2017 (UTC)

Proposal waiting[edit]

Hello Andy,

please have a look at this proposal. It's the same as this but affects an other German state - and is waiting since one whole week. Plese tell me, if something is wrong whis my proposal. Thanks --Quarz (talk) 11:20, 13 September 2017 (UTC)

@Quarz: It lacks an English description (it only has one in German) so most people will not be able to understand it. Andy Mabbett (Pigsonthewing); Talk to Andy; Andy's edits 11:56, 13 September 2017 (UTC)
Same for the label on Protected cultural heritage monument in Bremen (state) (Q31948690), which is given as the |domain=. Andy Mabbett (Pigsonthewing); Talk to Andy; Andy's edits 11:57, 13 September 2017 (UTC)
Thanks! Hoping it's better now I ask you for another try. --Quarz (talk) 13:29, 13 September 2017 (UTC)
@Quarz: Good work - I'm happy to support that now. Andy Mabbett (Pigsonthewing); Talk to Andy; Andy's edits 13:35, 13 September 2017 (UTC)
Many thanks!! --Quarz (talk) 14:45, 13 September 2017 (UTC)

New property proposal: I need help[edit]

Hi Andy! I create property proposal. As you can see, I'm not able to complete the parameter "allowed units". Can you help me? Thanks! --Yiyi .... (talk!) 13:23, 13 September 2017 (UTC)

I replied there. Happy to help. Andy Mabbett (Pigsonthewing); Talk to Andy; Andy's edits 13:33, 13 September 2017 (UTC)

Legal aspects of data donations[edit]

Hey Andy! IIRC you are organizing data donations to Wikidata occasionally. I have no idea how exactly the process is, but I imagine that you convince some organization to donate data in the very beginning, and then the they hand over a “data file” (whatever it looks like) to you and allows you or us to import it to Wikidata. How do you make sure that copyright aspects are dealt with properly? Does the “data file” already include a permissive, compatible license such as CC0, or does the donor also give you a written permission for the import? Do you make use of OTRS or something similar? I’m asing because there is another editor asking for such a process, and nobody is really able to tell them what to do due to the complex nature of database rights. If you are aware of any useful help pages, please point to them as well. Thanks and regards! MisterSynergy (talk) 07:53, 16 September 2017 (UTC)

@MisterSynergy: To the best of my knowledge, none of the data imported in this way, as a result of my efforts at least, has been copyrightable; nor come from a territory where database rights apply. In some cases the donating organisation uploads the data themselves. Andy Mabbett (Pigsonthewing); Talk to Andy; Andy's edits 12:20, 16 September 2017 (UTC)

mass creation of obvious Q5, omitting P31...[edit]

When you mass import data from a biographical source, like Q28322085, please, do not forget to add P31:Q5 ! --Hsarrazin (talk) 12:16, 16 September 2017 (UTC)

Label in English[edit]


I see that you added the English label "département archives" on departmental archives (Q2860456) but wouldn't "departmental archives" be a better label? I'm not sure, it seems there if a wide variety of translation but this one seems to be the more common on according to this website and like on en:Departmental archives of Doubs, what do you think?

Cdlt, VIGNERON (talk) 17:42, 18 September 2017 (UTC)

That was over two years ago. I therefore have no recollection of those edits. Your change seems sensible, please go ahead and make it. Andy Mabbett (Pigsonthewing); Talk to Andy; Andy's edits 22:18, 18 September 2017 (UTC)
Thank you, I'll do it to harmonize all 100 departmental archives then. Cdlt, VIGNERON (talk) 08:50, 19 September 2017 (UTC)
