Is inception (P571) necessary where there is already date of official opening (P1619)? I think it might be unnecessary and possibly incorrect if the station existed previously but was not open until that date.

Moved to Wikidata:Project chat.

I just found your note about the 5th birthday meeting at Roppongi. Is it the same place as we met last year?

Hi Syced,

Please avoid dumping data into Wikidata if you believe that it's incorrect. You shouldn't rely on other people to care clean up your edits .

Luckily for embassies, it happens you did the correct thing, but P155/P156 should be used as qualifiers and one should think of a plan to correct it when adding it as statements.

Syced (talkcontribs)

Nothing at follows (P155) says that the property must always be used as a qualifier (the talk page says it "can"). Actually, two of the three property examples at that page illustrate how to use the property directly, see for instance how April follows March, and how The Two Towers follows The Fellowship of the Ring. That being said, now I understand the merits of using a series. If you believe that only qualifier usage is OK, then please edit the property's documentation, and I will delete the statements that do not follow the new rule. In the example of your second diff, what do you think would be the best thing to do? Create a new item for the series? Cheers!

Could use a hand of a Japanese speaker at Wikidata:WikiProject sum of all paintings/Possible paintings. The instructions are at the top of the page. Thanks!

Syced (talkcontribs)

I started enhancing them, I did a dozen so far, quite interesting, thanks!

Multichill (talkcontribs)

Excellent! The bot looks in Category:Paintings (Q6009893), so in your case ja:Category:絵画作品. If you see a lot of non-paintings or other weird stuff showing up, it's probably because the category tree is incorrect somewhere. It might be a bit of a puzzle to solve that.

Multichill (talkcontribs)

Any luck with this? Still quite a bit list from jawp.

I set up the bot and did some test edits under my own bot account (example). Please have a look at [[Wikidata:Database reports/without claims by site/jawiki] and Wikidata:Database reports/templates and items with 0 claims/jawiki. Based on that you can probably expand ja:利用者:NoclaimsBot/Template claim. The bot will run every day.

Hi. (Regarding your post on project chat) MTC!, a tool developed by Fastily, written in Java, is open-source. I think in your community should be at least one user with programmer skills, who can code in Java. If you'll start a discussion locally about this fact, perhaps someone will be able to modify and adapt this tool for your wiki, and everyone will be happy seeing tons of files moved to Commons :)

Hi Syced!

I have finished analyzing the pilot campaign result. You can find the analysis result here. I have also proposed some changes on the existing item quality criteria. You might want to take a look at those :)

Hi Syced!

Thanks for your feedback for item quality model! I do appreciate your idea and feedback :)

I would like to ask if you are aware about this landing page: Wikidata:Item quality campaign. Additionally, I'd like to ask if you have participated in the pilot campaign :D

Wikidata bento in Tokyo, October 28th

Higa4 (talkcontribs)


Can I join the bento meet up?  I'm a wikidata beginner and an OpenStreetMapper.

Syced (talkcontribs)


Of course! See you at at 12:00 tomorrow :-)

Higa4 (talkcontribs)


Syced (talkcontribs)

Since you are an OpenStreetMapper, how about working on this tomorrow?

It is a useful task that links Wikidata and OpenStreetMap.

Higa4 (talkcontribs)

Thanks for your information. It's one of my concern if importing OSM objects into wikidata is possible legally, not technically.

Is there an agreement between wikidata community and OSM foundation for importing?

I'm not an ODbL enthusiast though, there may be some license violation for bulk import from ODbL to CC0 even if it may be fact data. If importing is "Substantial", ODbL license should be carried.

Syced (talkcontribs)

Inserting Wikidata identifiers into OpenStreetMap is 100% legal. Wikidata identifiers are public domain, and importing public domain material into OpenStreetMap is OK.

Syced (talkcontribs)

Thinking more about it, I agree with you that the second phase is problematic, thanks for the insight! I divided the Github issues into two phases for better clarity. We can at least start with phase 1, which is legal, I believe.

Higa4 (talkcontribs)

I agree. Wikidata -> OSM is OK.

Higa4 (talkcontribs)

Sorry, I may be late 10 or 20 min.
