You seem to have added a lot of incorrect labels for years, for example on 2161 (Q28871921) you've used "2161" for every language, even though many languages use different digits and/or do not write years as simply a number (you should have been aware of this already if you had looked at the labels of existing year items, 2010 (Q1995) for example). Can you please either fix or remove them?

It is a bad idea to blindly copy the same label to every single language. We deliberately do not use some language codes (e.g. some of the labels you added were removed again in Special:Diff/462523516) and assuming that all languages write something the same way is almost certainly going to be incorrect for some languages out there. I would strongly recommend not adding labels for languages you don't speak without first asking someone who does speak the language - you're not improving the data if what you're adding is wrong.

Ok then. I will keep it short, just to English, Spanish, and languages of that sort.

Pus, I have stopped doing this for 2 months, becuase someone else informed me I was wrong.

Multichill (talkcontribs) and many more edits are incorrect. Imported from should only be used on an import and never ever added later on.

PokestarFan (talkcontribs)

But it was retrieved from English Wikipedia. I do not get why it is not an import.

Please read Help:Sources

PokestarFan (talkcontribs)

It would have been more useful to link to Help:Sources#Differenttypes of sources, but I get the idea. I will end up removing the reference. But if it is not needed, then why does it exist?

It's used by bots to keep a trace where data is from. Now don't start mass removing it. It can only be removed if a real reference is added.

I'm looking at your other contributions and you seem to be a bit more focused on the quantity than the quality. That's concerning. I see a whole bunch of non-humans getting edits like this, please check and clean up . I also noticed a series of redundant film. You really need to be more careful with your edits.

Hi. See that you have been creating cats with Petscan, though numbers of these are duplicates. Really worthwhile if you have a list of categories that you look to match them with what is existing at Commons prior to running them through the creation process.

Billinghurst (talkcontribs)

I also dispute that for something like "Category:Straits of Poland" that the topic is "body of water', similarly that category: of a football club has topic "american football". Each of those either have no topic, or it would be the item for the club itself IMNSHO.

PokestarFan (talkcontribs)

The problem here is that I use a high-level cat and then do 6 levels of subcats.

Billinghurst (talkcontribs)

Actually, the problem is that you are creating duplicates; and I think that indicates that 6 levels of subcats isn't the right approach. Time to refine your approach.
