Gopher / Pocket Gopher[edit]

I wanted to add an Interwiki link between enwiki "Gopher" (the rodent) and dewiki "Taschenratten", which conflicts with enwikis "Pocket Gopher". But "Pocket Gopher" again is a redirection to "Gopher". So I assume the entries should be merged. Data: Q3252039 dewiki Taschenratten

If you are sure, you can delete en link in pocket gopher (Q756901) then you can move en link from Gopher (Q3252039) to pocket gopher (Q756901). --ValterVB (talk) 19:58, 12 March 2014 (UTC)

adulteration / adulterant[edit]

One could be about the process ((no label) (Q4681306)) and the other the product (Adulterant (Q1658591)). But each wikipedia has only a single page for the two notions. And for sample de:Panschen and cs:Pančování seem focused on adulteration but link to adulterant. Ske (talk)

Dispersion of the apostles[edit]

Item Q5282583 (Dispersioin of the apostles) has interwiki links for English, Spanish and Catalan. However, there are also versions of this article in German and Swedish, listed under item Q245209. Thus, the two should be merged. The Swedish article name (Apostlarnas delning) is a direct translation of the English one, while the German literally means "Twelve offering day", but concerns the same subject. /Ludde23 (talk) 09:46, 13 March 2014 (UTC)

Database inconsistency?[edit]

I cannot remove an incorrect Chinese language link (i.e. from as there is no Chinese entry at Q1192473. Zanetu (talk) 02:50, 16 March 2014 (UTC)

It's an "old style" interlink. You must remove it on en:Little Emperor Syndrome. --ValterVB (talk) 07:32, 16 March 2014 (UTC)
Got it. Thanks for the hint. Zanetu (talk) 07:54, 16 March 2014 (UTC)

Erroneous Swedish interwiki link - need help[edit]

I'm trying to correct the Swedish interwiki links for en:Cultural geography and en:Human geography, but I'm not used to the centralized interwiki handling. Can someone help me?

In short: en:Cultural geography should link to sv:Kulturens geografi and en:Human geography should link to sv:Kulturgeografi, not the other way round. The system won't allow me to correct the links or remove them. / 19:57, 17 March 2014 (UTC)

✓ Done It was necessary delete sitelinks and then add the corret siteklinks. Maybe you must correct Labels and/or descriptions --ValterVB (talk) 20:13, 17 March 2014 (UTC)

(fr) Psychographie (en) Psychographic (de) Psychografie[edit]

Differents subjects (see fr:Discussion:Psychographie#Référence vers la page anglaise); Item Q14566736 should be splitted in two? -- Speculos (talk) 13:28, 20 March 2014 (UTC)

Premiers of China[edit]

It seems that some links in Q6082330 (Category:Premiers of the People's Republic of China) may belong to Q15295921 (Category:Premiers of China) instead, because the categories contain premiers both from the Republic and People's Republic era. At least sv:Kategori:Kinas premiärministrar and es:Categoría:Primeros ministros de China should be moved (both contain article about Chiang Kai-shek, for instance), possibly some others too. Someone should check which of the categories are dedicated to the PRC and which are not. --Risukarhi (talk) 17:28, 22 March 2014 (UTC)

I moved the obvious cases now myself, and did the same thing with presidents (Q5871030 and Q15975480). Someone can check if I missed something. --Risukarhi (talk) 10:19, 23 March 2014 (UTC)

Saphenous nerve[edit] this site is all about the same which Saphenous nerve is. Could you join it together?

Somebody has done it already.--Ymblanter (talk) 06:55, 1 April 2014 (UTC)

S*M*A*S*H (TV miniseries)[edit]

en:S*M*A*S*H (TV miniseries) appears to be the same as sv:Smash (TV-serie) but I am apparently too simple-minded to effectuate a merge. Thanks in advance for the help. --Arxiloxos (talk) 19:10, 1 April 2014 (UTC)

There is not an interwiki conflict. Both are in the same item. Please remind that when you would notice about an interwiki conflict, do not make the request here, but press "Add a new interwiki conflict report" button. --Zerabat (talk) 02:13, 3 April 2014 (UTC)

Timeline of Railway History[edit]

I tried to link with the articles at timeline of railway history (Q3137487) where it belongs, but was unable becouse it already was in a category (Q10541876) , all by itself. Can't seem to merge these by myself. Filippo 1991 (talk) 12:32, 16 April 2014 (UTC)

Interwiki merge[edit]

Q741226 and Q1144689 both mean "Folding screen", or in Chinese, 屏风. Q741226 is actually the Japanese way to call the same thing, so it should actually be a chapter in the articles in Q1144689. Well, I should still admit that the Japanese Byōbu is a bit different from Folding screens since they have Japanese features... -- 09:37, 21 April 2014 (UTC)

Interwiki merge[edit]

It seems Q4182882 and Q7706999 are about the same person. en.wp has two seperate articles, which I guess should be merged locally and then Q7706999 could be deleted. I have moved all the other iws to Q4182882. --Wikijens (talk) 11:32, 23 April 2014 (UTC)
