I've started Wikidata:WikiProject_COVID-19 based on your message. Jodi.a.schneider (talk) 00:56, 16 March 2020 (UTC)[reply]

@Jodi.a.schneider: Great initiative! I was talking with User:Daniel Mietchen and he suggested that a task force may be better suited, based on his previous experiences. He suggested to maybe create it as a subpart of Wikidata:WikiProject_Medicine . TiagoLubiana (talk) 01:02, 16 March 2020 (UTC)[reply]

Bom dia, obrigado por ter actualizado COVID-19 pandemic in Portugal (Q86948603), no entanto, apesar das suas fontes serem de uma entidade credível, não estão de acordo com a realidade. Eu vou continuar a actualizar com os dados fornecidos pela Direcção Geral de Saúde. Joao4669 (talk) 13:14, 18 March 2020 (UTC)[reply]

Oi @Joao4669:. Obrigado por comentar. Sim, os dados da WHO são desatualizados, mas alguns items estavam ainda mais desatualizados. Foi uma edição em massa para todos os países. Muito bom que alguém esteja cuidando da página de Portugal. Se quiser contribuir mais para o projeto em geral, também, fica o convite para se juntar ao Wikidata:WikiProject_COVID-19.
Então vou marcar as edições em causa com "deprecated rank". Já agora, o ping a outros utilizadores só funciona se na mesma essa edição for assinada. Joao4669 (talk) 16:42, 18 March 2020 (UTC)[reply]
@Joao4669: Ah, obrigado. Preferia que marcasse as suas como preferred, e não as da OMS como deprecated. Não se dizer se a informação da OMS é "errada". Mas ambos fazem sentido. TiagoLubiana (talk) 17:35, 18 March 2020 (UTC)[reply]
@Joao4669: João, você prefere que eu exclua Portugal das próximas atualizações em massa com os dados da OMS? TiagoLubiana (talk) 03:04, 19 March 2020 (UTC)[reply]
Sim Tiago, de facto prefiro essa opção, na prática os valores são os mesmos mas com datas diferentes e não é possível alterar o rank somente da data. Muito obrigado pela sua disponibilidade. Boas edições, Joao4669 (talk) 06:45, 19 March 2020 (UTC)[reply]

Hi, I removed some of your data points for infected people on the page for the Netherlands. The source you use has data which is one day old. Please see the RIVM sources I used, which are the official counts, but a day earlier. --Egon Willighagen (talk) 14:35, 18 March 2020 (UTC)[reply]

@Egon Willighagen: Awesome that you are watching that page closely. They were the official counts by WHO, but I get that WHO is usually delayed regarding the counts. I believe both sources can coexist. It would be even interesting for later studying the gap between local and global information sources. Maybe marking the RIVM statements as a preferred source would be a good option, so it is clear that it should be the one used by external queries and so. But I mean, you can delete also, your call. TiagoLubiana (talk) 14:59, 18 March 2020 (UTC)[reply]
@Egon Willighagen: Would you prefer that I leave the Netherlands out of my next WHO-based case count batch edits? TiagoLubiana (talk) 03:04, 19 March 2020 (UTC)[reply]
@TiagoLubiana: Yeah, let's stick to RIVM. I can keep track of that. The gap analysis can be done anyway. PS, if you have ideas for, let me know :) It's work in progress, along with my day job, but getting more populated every day. --Egon Willighagen (talk) 07:06, 19 March 2020 (UTC)[reply]

Messy edits to Q84081576


Hi, I noticed you made some messy edits to this Qid. Could you clean it up so that every value has only 1 point in time and add refine date and the timezone for the source you are using (WHO)? See here for an example of how I would prefer it to look for each value: Thanks in advance!--So9q (talk) 09:00, 21 March 2020 (UTC)[reply]

@So9q: Thank you for your comment and for watching closely the Sweden page. I added the edits automatically using the WHO reports. If a value is repeated, the report for that day repeats the number. It is automatic, and I cannot change that. It is accurate, though. Well, if you want, I can just stop updating the Sweden page according to WHO numbers, no problems. And about the formatting, there is still no standard formatting for reporting outbreak case number. Your input would be super welcome in Wikidata:WikiProject_COVID-19, especially in the Wikidata:WikiProject_COVID-19/Data_models/Outbreaks section! Thanks! TiagoLubiana (talk) 14:01, 21 March 2020 (UTC)[reply]
Thanks for the invitation, could you please clean it up? It is unfortunate that quickstatements do make it possible to create a new value-statement and defaults to adding to an existing. Please check the result of your edits and ensure they are correct. Improving this flaw in quickstaments should IMO be prioritized. Can you please file a bug report?--So9q (talk) 15:16, 21 March 2020 (UTC)[reply]
@So9q: I beg your pardon, but it is not a mess, it is a valid representation of data from a reliable source. The results are correct, even though it might look weird. Please state clearly why it is a problem, and where is the official standard that should be followed. Prove it is a "mess" and sure, I will correct it. But please, refrain from using such an aggressive vocabulary, this is a collaborative environment. Thanks. TiagoLubiana (talk) 15:24, 21 March 2020 (UTC)[reply]
Sorry that it came across that way. I still think this is a mess because you mix references and dates and that makes it hard e.g. via queries to assert what date what source reported something. E.g. maybe someone would like to calculate how long time WHO lacks behind. For that we need more precision than your approach enables. I would prefer to have multiple e.g. 3 death values if the date or time differs between the sources. That way we make clear who said what when. You did not answer my question about filing a bug, should I take that as a no?--So9q (talk) 19:08, 21 March 2020 (UTC)[reply]
@So9q: Uuh, I get now what you mean. It was not a quickstatements bug, it was just how I was using (so my fault). Do you think that adding the qualifier to the reference (and not the statemente) would make it better? I don't think we currently can add a reference to a qualifier.Thanks for the comments TiagoLubiana (talk) 20:05, 21 March 2020 (UTC)[reply]
@So9q: By strict standards, point in time (P585) Shouldn't even be used in that situation, as it is to be used for "Anything that was confined to a specific time, but not a range of time" (Property_talk:P585). So, for multiple values in official reports, how can I solve that? TiagoLubiana (talk) 15:29, 21 March 2020 (UTC)[reply]
I disagree. The sources I have used all have point in time statements WHO inclusive (00:00 cet )--So9q (talk) 19:08, 21 March 2020 (UTC)[reply]
@So9q: That is a nice suggestion, thanks. I agree, WHO has a point in time info, and that can be added. It has not been added by default in items such as COVID-19 pandemic in the United States (Q83873577) before. I will make sure I add it to my next edits. If possible, can you raise this kind of concern on the Wikidata_talk:WikiProject_COVID-19 so other people can also improve their editing? Thanks TiagoLubiana (talk) 19:12, 21 March 2020 (UTC)[reply]
Done :)--So9q (talk) 20:36, 21 March 2020 (UTC)[reply]

Destructive edit


Hi. I'd like to remind you that your bot keeps doing destructive edits on the COVID-19 pandemic in Indonesia's wikidata page which affects its wikipedia's article. Please do something to fix this because we can't keep reverting it. Thanks. HiChrisBoyleHere (talk) 02:57, 16 January 2021 (UTC)[reply]

  • Hello, @HiChrisBoyleHere:. No problems, I'll remove Indonesia from the automatic updates, thanks for letting me know. I imagine you keep it with only one result so you can pull with a Lua template. I'd like to point out to this bot discussion and ask you to note there your issue. Can you point to me which user/users are responsible for maintaining the Indonesia item so I can list them on the CovidDatahubBot? TiagoLubiana (talk) 13:04, 16 January 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Hi, Your bot makes also destructive edits on the on the COVID-19 pandemic in Luxembourg's wikidata page ( Please remove Luxembourg from automatic updates. I'm updating the wikidata page of Luxembourg. thanks --Sultan Edijingo (talk) 19:58, 16 January 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Some suggestions for the COVID-19 bot


I've noticed that your bot is making updates on COVID-19 pandemic items (I myself am monitoring COVID-19 pandemic in Singapore (Q83873387)), but only on the total number of cases and deaths. Does the dataset you're pulling the info from also contain the number of recoveries and hospitalizations? Would be handy to automatically fill those out too.

Also another suggestion: can your bot maybe set the latest statement for each of those statistics as the highest priority (with the older statements as normal)? I don't know if other people manually updating the pandemic items do this (other contributors are free to chime in), but I've stuck to a convention of setting the latest stats statements as "preferred", so that other apps that pull info from WD (e.g. Entity Explosion) could show just those latest stats rather than a barrage of numbers.

--Btcprox (talk) 05:32, 23 January 2021 (UTC)[reply]

  • @Btcprox: Thank you for the message! The dataset unfortunately does not include recoveries and hospitalizations. The second suggestion is really good. I want to do that, eventually, but I am letting the bot get "noticed" by the community before moving forward to tweaking ranks. Whenever we reach a point that the bot is not competing with human editors, then sure, it would be great! If you want the bot to stop updating Singapore, just let me know. If you want to share your thoughts at the bot discussion page, you are very welcome. TiagoLubiana (talk) 16:33, 26 January 2021 (UTC)[reply]
  • (By the way, I have great memories of Singapore, specially the kites at the marina and the Jurong Bird Park. Beautiful country.) TiagoLubiana (talk) 16:33, 26 January 2021 (UTC)[reply]



Your bot edits element COVID-19 pandemic in Poland (Q87250695). Could it change last information about "number of deaths" and "number of cases" to preferred too, because Polish Wikinews uses this element? (talk) 14:05, 29 January 2021 (UTC)[reply]

CovidDatahubBot vaccinations


Is it possible to have the bot track COVID-19 vaccinations now that number of vaccinations (P9107) exists? Examples of its usage are on its property page. AntisocialRyan (talk) 17:15, 6 February 2021 (UTC)[reply]

CovidDatahubBot suddenly stopped updating


Hey there, seems like your bot has stopped updating the COVID-19 stats, according to Special:Contributions/CovidDatahubBot. Something weird going on? --Btcprox (talk) 09:31, 30 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Call for participation in the interview study with Wikidata editors


Dear TiagoLubiana,

I hope you are doing good,

I am Kholoud, a researcher at King’s College London, and I work on a project as part of my PhD research that develops a personalized recommendation system to suggest Wikidata items for the editors based on their interests and preferences. I am collaborating on this project with Elena Simperl and Miaojing Shi.

I would love to talk with you to know about your current ways to choose the items you work on in Wikidata and understand the factors that might influence such a decision. Your cooperation will give us valuable insights into building a recommender system that can help improve your editing experience.

Participation is completely voluntary. You have the option to withdraw at any time. Your data will be processed under the terms of UK data protection law (including the UK General Data Protection Regulation (UK GDPR) and the Data Protection Act 2018). The information and data that you provide will remain confidential; it will only be stored on the password-protected computer of the researchers. We will use the results anonymized to provide insights into the practices of the editors in item selection processes for editing and publish the results of the study to a research venue. If you decide to take part, we will ask you to sign a consent form, and you will be given a copy of this consent form to keep.

If you’re interested in participating and have 15-20 minutes to chat (I promise to keep the time!), please either contact me at or use this form with your choice of the times that work for you.

I’ll follow up with you to figure out what method is the best way for us to connect.

Please contact me using the email mentioned above if you have any questions or require more information about this project.

Thank you for considering taking part in this research.



Automated updates


Hi. Will it still be possible to use Wikidata for several pages related to COVID-19, such as this template and related Wikipedia articles? I am aware that this bot updates some relevant Wikidata pages, but it does so more than one day after new figures are released. However, using the bot is now more preferable because it reduces the need for editors to open a lot of sources several times every day. Also, it has already become more challenging to edit the template because less editors are willing to spend time to edit it. LSGH (talk) 14:00, 20 July 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Sadly, I do not know anyone who could do that. I do not want to spend too much time updating the template. Will it be okay if I edit some of those Wikidata pages manually? I am looking at either India or Indonesia as an example. LSGH (talk) 04:16, 21 July 2021 (UTC)[reply]
@LSGH: Sure, no problems. If you want the bot to stop editing some country too just let me know. TiagoLubiana (talk) 11:28, 21 July 2021 (UTC)[reply]
I do not know yet which countries I will be updating manually, but the number should not be too large. I hope that more Wikidata fetch codes can be used so that editors can have more time to do other things. LSGH (talk) 12:53, 21 July 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Can I tell you through email which countries I wish to update manually? LSGH (talk) 09:39, 9 August 2021 (UTC)[reply]
@LSGH: Sure, but if you can tell it on wiki (here or on the bot page) it would be better. TiagoLubiana (talk) 13:20, 9 August 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Rank updates on COVID-19 stats for Poland


Hello! Expanding on #CovidDatahubBot, could you please include a condition into your scripts to prevent setting the rank to normal whenever there is no new update, either on the number of cases (P1603) or the number of deaths (P1120)? For instance, see Special:Diff/1490242242. Since no update followed this edit, the P1120 statement was left with no value set as preferred, hence code such as {{#statements:P1120|from=Q87250695}} is now returning multiple values instead of a single one. Kind regards, Peter Bowman (talk) 10:45, 31 August 2021 (UTC)[reply]

@Peter Bowman: Nice catch and sorry for the bug! I've added a ticket on github ( and will patch it ASAP TiagoLubiana (talk) 22:31, 31 August 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Call for participation in a task-based online experiment


Dear Tiago Lubiana,

I hope you are doing good,

I am Kholoud, a researcher at King's College London, and I work on a project as part of my PhD research, in which I have developed a personalised recommender system that suggests Wikidata items for the editors based on their past edits. I am collaborating on this project with Elena Simperl and Miaojing Shi.

I am inviting you to a task-based study that will ask you to provide your judgments about the relevance of the items suggested by our system based on your previous edits. Participation is completely voluntary, and your cooperation will enable us to evaluate the accuracy of the recommender system in suggesting relevant items to you. We will analyse the results anonymised, and they will be published to a research venue.

The study will start in late January 2022 or early February 2022, and it should take no more than 30 minutes.

If you agree to participate in this study, please either contact me at or use this form I will contact you with the link to start the study.

For more information about the study, please read this post: In case you have further questions or require more information, don't hesitate to contact me through my mentioned email.

Thank you for considering taking part in this research.

To elaborate the cancellation message, take the example of chemical elements.

C14 is an isotope of Carbon. As a C14 atom is a C atom we have
⟨ C14 ⟩ subclass of (P279) View with SQID ⟨ C ⟩
Carbon is an instance of chemical element, C14 is an instance of isotope.
Because this scheme is true for any isotope is a subclass of a chemical element, we have
⟨ isotope ⟩ meta-subclass of Search ⟨ chemical element ⟩
Now if « meta subclass of » was a subproperty of « subclass of » this would mean that we can replace in all cases « metasubclass of » by « subclass of » and the claim remain true.
We have « 
⟨ C14 ⟩ instance of (P31) View with SQID ⟨ isotope ⟩
. So if we replace metasubclass by subclass in
⟨ isotope ⟩ metasubclass of (P2445) View with SQID ⟨ element ⟩
we would get
⟨ isotope ⟩ subclass of (P279) View with SQID ⟨ element ⟩
. But, because an instance of a subclass is an instance of the superclass … we would have
⟨ C14 ⟩ instance of (P31) View with SQID ⟨ element ⟩
… but C14 is an isotope an not an element. author  TomT0m / talk page 19:17, 27 March 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Nota de pesar


Auricea Anacleta da Silva (Olinda, 24 de julho de 1948 - Paulista, 1º de maio de 2022)


Morreu no dia 1º de maio, aos 73 anos, 9 meses e 7 dias, minha mãe. Ela esteve internada no Hospital Miguel Arraes, em Paulista, Pernambuco. Tudo que ela comia, vomitava. Era bulímica e sofria de infecção urinária. A doutora Tereza Cristina a proibia de comer arroz, feijão e tudo que fizesse mal a ela. Estou muito triste com a morte dela.

'chemical entity class'


Could you please stop that and take part in a relevant discussion in WP:CHEM? This is too far-reaching and premature. [1]. What's more, some of your edits are not correct, chemical elements like osmium (Q751) cannot be classified in the same way like compounds. Wostr (talk) 11:46, 3 September 2022 (UTC) PS Because chemical elements like osmium (Q751) (hypothetical concepts) are not the same as simple substances (i.e. a matter composed of atoms of specific chemical element). Wostr (talk) 11:55, 3 September 2022 (UTC)[reply]

@Wostr: Thank you for the comments! Not always easy to find where (and if) such a discussion is going on. The edits were only for items that had a SMILES code and a ChEBI ID, thus under falling under the ChEBI "chemical entity" class, that includes atoms, molecular entities, molecular groups and substances ( But of course, I'll stop updating any other items and join the discussion.

Google Product Taxonomy


Hi Tiago,

I've just merged a ton of items from the Google Product Taxonomy. Do you have any contact to the original authors?

I'm not a native speaker of English, but I can certainly tell that many names in the taxonomy are rather sloppy and not the most common word for an item.

Kind regards Jackie Bensberg (talk) 18:39, 2 April 2023 (UTC)[reply]

Please stop updating


Your bot User:CovidDatahubBot is still updating COVID-19 cases based on , which rely on Johns Hopkins University. However, Johns Hopkins University has stopped update on March 10, so your bot is posting the same statement every day. For example, it added "COVID-19 pandemic in Japan (Q83872291) number of deaths (P1120) 72,997 point in time (P585) 2023-03-09" for more than 50 times!

Mapping that you use for UMLS CUI (P2892) seems unreliable. E.g. in coal (Q24489) you added three different UMLS ids that are for distinct entities and therefore in Wikidata should be mapped to different items (that may or may not exist yet). I think you should skip/undo edits at least in these Wikidata items that are mapped to multiple UMLS entries. But possible the rest of your mapping is also of bad quality, e.g. see User talk:TiagoLubianaBot. 2001:7D0:81FD:BC80:D984:A921:D7DB:76E8 07:05, 25 May 2023 (UTC)[reply]

Thanks for the ping! Yep, I ended up noticing that too. There is apparently a many-to-one mappings from UMLS to MeSH terms, which I did not expect. I've checked quite some manually, and I had not found errors, just many-to-one mappings for which the items did not yet exist.
I still think there is a benefit of bringing those multi-mappings to Wikidata (even if they are not exact matches), but I made sure to use a very specific provenance heuristic statement, so I can remove then in batch in the future.
Anyways, I have stopped the bot for now and I thank you for the feedback. I'll wait a bit, and if these problems are widespread, I'll undo it. TiagoLubiana (talk) 10:42, 25 May 2023 (UTC)[reply]

Municipalities of Minas-Gerais


At the end of November 2020 you added populations of all municipalities of Brazil to update them to an estimation for July 2020, using quickstatements. Thanks for that! Unfortunately you didn't or couldn't update the rank from normal to a preferred rank, so the wikipedias using that wikidata item still use the first number of 2010, which by now is 13 years old. That is a pity... Do by now you could manage to update the rank from normal to preferred rank in your latest numbers of populations of July 2020? Mayby not by quickstatements, but by bot? Between thousands of afflicted pages, I'll name by chance the page eo:Formiga in Esperanto. The Esperanto editors need a solution for that, though some hundreds of wikidata items have yet been manually updated from normal to preferred rank ... but to do so this in every wikidata item would be unrealistic.

No final de novembro de 2020, você adicionou as populações de todos os municípios do Brasil para atualizá-las com uma estimativa para julho de 2020, usando declarações rápidas ("quickstatements"). Obrigado por isso! Infelizmente você não atualizou ou não pôde atualizar a classificação de normal para preferencial, então as wikipedias que usam esse item de wikidata ainda usam o primeiro número de 2010, que agora tem 13 anos. É uma pena... Você já conseguiu atualizar a classificação de normal para preferencial em seus últimos números de populações de julho de 2020? Talvez não por "quickstatements", mas por bot? Entre milhares de páginas aflitas, citarei por acaso a página eo:Formiga em Esperanto. Os editores do Esperanto precisam de uma solução para isso, embora algumas centenas de itens de wikidata tenham sido atualizados manualmente de normal para classificação preferencial ... mas fazer isso com todos os itens de wikidata seria irreal.

Dear TiagoLubiana, I see that meanwhile the municipalities of Minas-Gerais all seem to have a (selected) population as of July 2021. That is a big step foreward: thanks for your efforts!!! Of course, Brazil is not only Minas-Gerais... For example, I today passed the item for Alto Alegre SP (d:Q1806762), which offers population of 2000, 2010 and 2015, nothing after this. There and in many other cases your help would be highly appreciated. Often I nearly lose hope, seeing all the remaining Esperanto articles about brazilian municipalities, which are just below any standard and should be deleted immediately. But how could we dare so? Anyway there were keen brazilian esperantists creating them in good intention - to throw away all their work and leave nothing would be cruel. But to make good article stubs, good wikidata items are just needed... for all languages. ThomasPusch (talk) 18:15, 11 July 2023 (UTC)[reply]

National Science Foundation Award


Thanks for setting up National Science Foundation award (P11858).

I proposed this at Wikidata:Property proposal/National Science Foundation award and now I intend to populate it, but first I have a couple of challenges.

  1. Are you able to generate documentation on the talk page for this property? The talk page is currently empty. And is there is brief explanation of how I could have done this myself?
  2. The formatter URL is not resolving because it puts an extra "1" in front of the value. I tried editing the Wikidata value of the formatted in the property, but I did not see a change or fix. Are you able to advise?

Thanks. Bluerasberry (talk) 16:00, 19 July 2023 (UTC)[reply]

1. I am not sure! I thought they were added automatically. I'll take a look at other pages and ask around to see how it works.
2. Sorry for the formatter URL issue! There is some lag in updates of the formatter URL across Wikidata, these are known. It should take some time (perhaps a couple of days) but it will eventually update to the current formatting.
Cheers! TiagoLubiana (talk) 17:07, 19 July 2023 (UTC)[reply]
Apparently it is just a matter of adding the to the talk page; I did it there, but I think anyone can do it TiagoLubiana (talk) 17:10, 19 July 2023 (UTC)[reply]
YesY Thanks, talk page looks good now. Will wait a bit to see the formatter update. Bluerasberry (talk) 17:50, 19 July 2023 (UTC)[reply]

Unnecessary aliases


Can you please revert the aliases portion of this QuickStatements batch? Search is case insensitive; there is no reason to add capitalized versions of existing labels as aliases, and it just adds clutter. Thanks, Swpb (talk) 20:35, 24 August 2023 (UTC)[reply]

Potential duplicate?


Hello! You created item RTS,S (Q106249963), and have also edited RTS,S (Q7277881); are these actually different things, and if so, what do you think could be added to these items to demonstrate the difference? Thanks, Jamie7687 (talk) 05:58, 19 November 2023 (UTC)[reply]

You are correct, they are actually the same, thanks for the ping. TiagoLubiana (talk) 13:25, 25 November 2023 (UTC)[reply]

Invitation to participate in the WQT UI requirements elicitation online workshop


Dear TiagoLubiana,

I hope you are doing well,

We are a group of researchers from King’s College London working on developing WQT (Wikidata Quality Toolkit), which will support a diverse set of editors in curating and validating Wikidata content.

We are inviting you to participate in an online workshop aimed at understanding the requirements for designing effective and easy-to-use user interfaces (UI) for three tools within WQT that can support the daily activities of Wikidata editors: recommending items to edit based on their personal preferences, finding items that need better references, and generating entity schemas automatically for better item quality.

The main activity during this workshop will be UI mockup sketching. To facilitate this, we encourage you to attend the workshop using a tablet or laptop with PowerPoint installed or any other drawing tools you prefer. This will allow for a more interactive and productive session as we delve into the UI mockup sketching activities.

Participation is completely voluntary. You should only take part if you want to and choosing not to take part will not disadvantage you in any way. However, your cooperation will be valuable for the WQT design. Please note that all data and responses collected during the workshop will be used solely for the purpose of improving the WQT and understanding editor requirements. We will analyze the results in an anonymized form, ensuring your privacy is protected. Personal information will be kept confidential and will be deleted once it has served its purpose in this research.

The online workshop, which will be held on April 5th, should take no more than 3 hours.

If you agree to participate in this workshop, please either contact me at or use this form to register your interest Then, I will contact you with all the instructions for the workshop.

For more information about my project, please read this page:

If you have further questions or require more information, don't hesitate to contact me at the email address mentioned above.

Thank you for considering taking part in this project.

Regards Kholoudsaa (talk) 17:03, 19 March 2024 (UTC)[reply]

Thank you for the invitation! I am in a particularly busy moment of life and won't be able to attend, but I really hope everything goes well!! All the best, Tiago. TiagoLubiana (talk) 18:32, 20 March 2024 (UTC)[reply]

Duplicates ?



Could you have a look at what seems to be duplicates?

And if they are not duplicates, there should be some indication to make the distinction clearer.

Cheers, VIGNERON (talk) 12:14, 24 April 2024 (UTC)[reply]

Thanks! They are definitely the same. I've merged both, thank you very much for spotting that. TiagoLubiana (talk) 15:08, 24 April 2024 (UTC)[reply]



Tiago, tudo bem? Gostaria de pedir sua ajuda para conseguir adicionar um novo controle de autoridade no Wikidata, o Acho que é importante, é mais uma maneira de aferir autoridade com elementos fidedignos etc. Não sei por onde começar, então se sobrar um tempinho, adoraria que você pudesse me ajudar. Abraços. Mtvdanilo (talk) 14:16, 6 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]

Salve, Danilo, desculpe a demora! Tou com uma recém-nascida em casa, o tempo tá escasso :)
O processo passa por criar uma (ou duas) propostas de propriedade para o Wikidata, uma para as pessoas, outra para as organizações.
Não é super trivial, o processo está detalhado em e passa por uma rodada de aprovação da comunidade.
Em outro momento, criaria para ti, mas aora está enrolado. Dá uma olhada nas propriedades por lá, como o pessoal modela, e tenta fazer uma proposta?
Aí vamos editando/alterando para ficar legal.
Abraço! TiagoLubiana (talk) 12:00, 8 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]

El juego de Wikidata


Microscopical Researches


Please do not merge works and editions. They must be separate as data items in order to accommodate publication data. Further, a work originally published in German should never be merged with its English translation. --EncycloPetey (talk) 16:53, 5 June 2024 (UTC)[reply]

Thanks! There were a few IDs shared between both, and some automatic (wrong) information pulled from BHL.
The translation by Henry Smith collates two books in one, but they are independent entities in German. Not sure on how to model that and still ensure all links correctly.
I was also confused because the WikiSource link went to the edition and the Wikipedia link to the work, and I thought they were suppose to link to the same Wikidata page (but now I am not sure)
Anyways, sorry for the trouble. TiagoLubiana (talk) 17:06, 5 June 2024 (UTC)[reply]
