Welcoming myself[edit]

Welcome to Wikidata, Titodutta!

Wikidata is a free knowledge base that you can edit! It can be read and edited by humans and machines alike and you can go to any item page now and add to this ever-growing database!

Need some help getting started? Here are some pages you can familiarize yourself with:

If you have any questions, please ask me on my talk page. If you want to try out editing, you can use the sandbox to try. Once again, welcome, and I hope you quickly feel comfortable here, and become an active editor for Wikidata.

Can you please adjust such values? There was no Germany (Q183) at his time. --Infovarius (talk) 06:06, 7 January 2017 (UTC)

  • Hi, thanks for letting me know. What do you think should be the citizenship? Regards. --Titodutta (talk)

Homicide or murder?[edit]

Hey, I just noticed that you changed the manner of death (P1196) of Gauri Lankesh (Q38711433) from murder (Q132821) which is a subclass of (P279) of homicide (Q149086) to simply homicide (Q149086). That is what I had initially done too (not as a revision, but while editing), but then corrected myself. I wanted to understand why you prefer the more general class. Thanks :) Prtksxna (talk) 08:59, 8 September 2017 (UTC)

  • That's a good question, thanks for asking. I was doing a study on Wikipedia (cats) and Wikidata and trying to find a list of Indian women who were murdered.
# Notable Indian women who were murdered
SELECT ?India ?IndiaLabel ?date_of_birth ?date_of_death WHERE {
  SERVICE wikibase:label { bd:serviceParam wikibase:language "[AUTO_LANGUAGE],en". }
  ?India wdt:P27 wd:Q668.
  ?India wdt:P1196 wd:Q149086.
  ?India wdt:P21 wd:Q6581072.
  OPTIONAL { ?India wdt:P569 ?date_of_birth. }
  OPTIONAL { ?India wdt:P570 ?date_of_death. }
}
LIMIT 100

Try it!

When I tried "manner of death", I got only 1 entry, mentioned above. and the I tried "homicide". I felt that it would be more consistent. That was the reason. Please let me know what you think. --Titodutta (talk) 09:06, 8 September 2017 (UTC)

  • @Prtksxna:, your talk page is not properly loading for me because of "dependencey failure", so failed to add a Talkback. --Titodutta (talk) 09:08, 8 September 2017 (UTC)
    • Thanks for the quick reply! Yeah I get it, its a more popularly used item. But I think we should be specific where we can, and possibly even change the items that are incorrectly marked as homicide (Q149086) (which is just killing by someone else) but really are murder (Q132821) (killing by someone else with a certain intent). Your query could also be updated to match for homicide (Q149086) and all its subclasses (subclass of (P279)):
# Notable Indian women who were killed by homicide or a subclass thereof
SELECT ?Indian ?IndianLabel ?date_of_birth ?date_of_death WHERE {
 SERVICE wikibase:label { bd:serviceParam wikibase:language "[AUTO_LANGUAGE],en". }
 ?Indian wdt:P27 wd:Q668.
 # Matching all subclasses too (this actually gets you one more result)
 ?Indian p:P1196/ps:P1196/wdt:P279* wd:Q149086.
 ?Indian wdt:P21 wd:Q6581072.
 OPTIONAL { ?Indian wdt:P569 ?date_of_birth. }
 OPTIONAL { ?Indian wdt:P570 ?date_of_death. }
}
LIMIT 100

Try it!

Not sure what the issue with the talk page is, sorry :( —Prtksxna (talk) 09:19, 8 September 2017 (UTC)

  • True, that would be better. Thanks. User:Prtksxna, if you get time please consider to add the query above here or add some interesting queries there. --Titodutta (talk) 10:11, 8 September 2017 (UTC)

Your user page[edit]

I really liked how you've done your user page and decided to do something similar. Hope you like it, and don't mind my copying :) —Prtksxna (talk) 08:35, 5 October 2017 (UTC)

Topic[edit]

  • @Jura1, ValterVB:, thanks, sorry, I was traveling and had very little internet connectivity. #3, #4, #5, yes those are same articles. #2 United Mission: that is a higher secondary school, some statements can be added, and I feel it passes notability. #1 Q30221935 Completely empty - I can't recall this one, can you go to the revision history and let me know if any content existed there and later removed by someone? Thanks. --Titodutta (talk) 04:03, 23 October 2017 (UTC)
    • @Titodutta: 3 restored and merged. About Q30221935: checked, the item was created empty using #quickstatements. no label, no description no sitelink. --ValterVB (talk) 11:31, 24 October 2017 (UTC)
  • Thank you. I remember now, the item was created mistakenly, I marked it for deletion as author's request. Thanks for the help. --Titodutta (talk) 11:59, 24 October 2017 (UTC)
