Asia Minor (Q12824780)/Anatolia (Q51614)[edit]

Items involved: Q12824780Talk, Q51614Talk Status: X mark.svg   not resolved

It should be the same thing. I didn't get any respond here, also user Treisijs didn't get respond here. --Edgars2007 (talk) 16:06, 22 January 2015 (UTC)
Actually there are two classes of articles: Asia Minor (Q12824780) is for peninsula (geographic entity) and Anatolia (Q51614) is for historic region (historic and cultural entity) — NickK (talk) 22:04, 23 February 2015 (UTC)
I ammended the description to match this but I'm not sure the sitelink split matches the division described by NickK Lots of the descriptions for Anatolia (Q51614) in other languages describe it as a peninsula. Needs work. Filceolaire (talk) 21:09, 1 July 2015 (UTC)

Hi DonDrakon
There is some conflicts so we can't merge this two. There is two different articles on:

It seems to be two different concepts to me. Cdlt, VIGNERON (talk) 11:22, 22 February 2015 (UTC)

railway (Q22667)/rail transport (Q3565868)/rail guided transport (Q350783)[edit]

Items involved: Q22667Talk, Q3565868Talk, Q350783Talk Status: X mark.svg   not resolved

This three elements involve two different concepts. As far as I can see, the two clearly distinct concepts are:
  • Railway / railroad (based on Q22667), i.e. vehicles and infrastructure of train transportation
  • Rail transport (based on Q3565868), i.e. any kind of transport using rails, not only trains, but also urban rail such as underground/subway/metro, trams, funiculars etc.

The third concept (based on Q350783) is unclear and can be hardly distinguished from the previous ones.

For seven languages currently present in rail guided transport (Q350783) I would suggest doing the following:

I would welcome other ideas (especially if anyone sees how rail guided transport (Q350783) is different from the others). If there are no objections, I will do this merge within a few days — NickK (talk) 17:27, 23 February 2015 (UTC)

Update: I see a potential problem with French (and probably Occitan) as it does not seem to have an exact equivalent of rail transport: there is a notion of railway/railroad (fr:Chemin de fer) and a notion "rail transport and cable cars" (fr:Transport guidé), with nothing in between for purely rail transport. Is there an equivalent of fr:Transport guidé in any language or should we leave it alone? @VIGNERON:, you are quite active here so your feedback is welcome — NickK (talk) 17:38, 23 February 2015 (UTC)
Hi NickK,
First, there is already a request up here about railway (Q22667)/rail transport (Q3565868).
Then there is two families of concept : « transport » (the system globally) and « infrastructure » (an element of the system). On the french wikipédia, two articles about railway : fr:Chemin de fer and fr:Voie ferrée (both expression that can translated as « railway » in english ; but the first is more general like « transport by rail » and the second is more « railroad »…). It's very bit subtle but I think the first article could go to the « transport » family and the second on to the « infrastructure » family.
fr:Transport guidé is completely different, it's in the « transport » family but it's more general, it's a superclass of « railway transport ». I can't find any articles about that concept except on the french and occitan wikipedias.
Cdlt, VIGNERON (talk) 18:32, 23 February 2015 (UTC)
Hi VIGNERON, and yes, I have seen this discussion. However, I wanted to add a different angle to it by adding one more related element and merging 3 elements into 2. As far as I can see, we already have a large family of notions:
The issue is that while track (Q160342) is a very clear notion (clearly indentifiable, most of languages have a word for this), it is almost impossible to draw a line between the remaining four. en:Rail transport and uk:Рейковий транспорт have exactly the same meaning (i.e. rail (Q633423) + transport (Q7590)) but do not belong to the same element. Many languages have a distinction between a railway and a rail transport (e.g. cs:Železnice is railway and cs:Kolejová doprava is rail transport, i.e. railway + metro + tram + funicular etc.) but not between a railway system and a railway transport. In pt there are pt:Ferrovia and pt:Transporte ferroviário but they are candidates for merging.
I see the problem in the following view. There are 3-4 notions:
1. Infrastructure of railways and stations (probably at railway (Q22667)) and websites and companies... - branch of economics
2. Only railways and probably their net (probably at track (Q160342)). Not clearly distinguishable from previous, for me.
3. Rail transport (for sure at rail guided transport (Q350783))
3. Train transport = rail transport - metro - trams and so on (probably at rail transport (Q3565868))
So, the existance of 4 items is understandable. --Infovarius (talk) 13:48, 19 June 2015 (UTC)
Thus the question is now different: do we need to split it even further or is it possible to put something together? — NickK (talk) 20:17, 23 February 2015 (UTC)
A similar problem: what's meant by Q12897871, i.e. the Haitian Creole ht:Tren. @Ajv75, Bequw, Bfpage, Dionysia, Fetmar: --Liuxinyu970226 (talk) 03:35, 9 March 2015 (UTC)

Macedonia related diambiguations[edit]

--Matěj Suchánek (talk) 14:38, 1 March 2015 (UTC)
Macedonicus (Q11774177) has nothing to do with the others as it is about a person named Macedonicus. For the remaining ones... it is complicated. I made some cleanup and got the following:
  • Macedonian (Q568972) for everything related to Macedonian people (or Macedonians)
  • Q3275109 for everything related to Macedonian language (or Macedonian)
  • Macedonia (Q39702), Macedonië (Q15977979), Makedonia (Q1163835), Macedónia (Q1161192) = Macedonia in different spellings. Many languages use different spellings for Macedonia as an independent republic, a Greek and a Bulgarian ethnic territory (the record holder is Hungarian where a Roman province, Greek Macedonia and Republic of Macedonia all have different names); in addition, there are other things (like cities in the USA and Romania or a French salad) named after Macedonia. I don't imagine how we can merge all of these together — NickK (talk) 18:40, 3 March 2015 (UTC)

Items involved: Q187657Talk, Q2405480Talk, Q11481802Talk Status: X mark.svg   not resolved

--Matěj Suchánek (talk) 17:31, 16 March 2015 (UTC)
In the languages I see, dubbing (Q187657) is a stage in film making, whereas voice actor (Q2405480) and dub actor (Q11481802) are occupations which a person can have, so they should not be merged. It is possible that voice actor (Q2405480) and dub actor (Q11481802) should be merged. I see discussion on the Catalan Wikipedia about merging. On the gl Wikipedia they are distinguished [1] [2], but why? I suppose a "Actor de voz" could be an actor working in the radio. — Finn Årup Nielsen (fnielsen) (talk) 16:37, 21 April 2016 (UTC)

It looks like phab:T101086 is the ticket for standardising the codes used by the Babel extension (although that won't fix the cases where the categories are coming from a local template rather than the Babel extension). - Nikki (talk) 06:55, 5 July 2015 (UTC)

I can't see how social work science differs from social work, but there are five languages with articles on both entities. --Runner1928 (talk) 16:05, 30 March 2015 (UTC)
One is about the actual work, the other about the science as teached in (academic) institutions. No conflict here. Don't you think that if five languages have two separate articles, there should be something to it? --Joostik (talk) 13:03, 2 April 2015 (UTC)
Perhaps. Both English articles, at least, claim that they're the academic discipline. And so do both Wikidata entities. If we're to say they're separate entities, then we should make sure that claims/properties don't overlap in a conflicting way. Runner1928 (talk) 15:43, 2 April 2015 (UTC)

Items involved: Q629199Talk, Q17101881Talk Status: X mark.svg   not resolved

Q629199 is about the Latin phrase "Suum cuique," meaning "to each his own/may all have their due." Q17101881 is about the German translation of the phrase, "Jedem das Seine", notorious for its use as a WW2 death camp motto. enwiki has articles on each, but all(?) other wikis combine both in one. Several also translate "Suum cuique/Jedem das Seine" into the wiki language (bg,fa,hy,ja,ko,ru). "Jedem das Seine" is a far more common title than "Suum cuique", but I think Q629199 should be the default item anyway. N.B. itwiki uses "Cuique suum", semantically identical to "Suum cuique". --Alarob (talk) 21:51, 27 May 2015 (UTC)

@ScottDavis: Hi :) I don't think they are actually the same thing - one is about the states and territories, which are the highest level of subdivision, the other is about subdivisions in general (which includes, but is not limited to, the states and territories), although you do seem to be right that most of them appear to only be talking about the states and territories. The Dutch one isn't though, that's mostly talking about local government area of Australia (Q1867183). ‎I've removed the Slovak sitelink which was redirecting and I've asked on the country subdivision task force page about whether the other links should be moved. - Nikki (talk) 15:40, 17 June 2015 (UTC)

detective (Q842782)/private investigator (Q1058617)[edit]

@Rene1956:, ru:Детектив (профессия) can work in police, and what about fr:Détective? It seems that it is about private profession, so it's different. --Infovarius (talk) 06:35, 29 June 2015 (UTC)
@Infovarius: Thank you for your answer. First, you are right, this is not 100% the same profession. However, it is about 90% the same thing and that's why I would like a link between fr:Détective and ru:Детектив (профессия). Second, there is another problem: I go to en:Detective. I see a link, both to fr:Détective and to ru:Детектив (профессия). Then, I go to fr:Détective and I don't see the link to ru:Детектив (профессия). --Rene1596 (talk) 08:59, 29 June 2015 (UTC)

naval ship (Q177597)/warship (Q3114762)[edit]

Items involved: Q177597Talk, Q3114762Talk Status: X mark.svg   not resolved

The first item should be about naval ships. I.e. ships that are operated by a navy, independent of if they are intended to be used for combat (i.e. also the transport ships etc).

The second item should be about ships specifically built for combat. While these often belong to a navy (and are thus a subclass of naval ships) I'm not sure that is technically a requirement.

The Wikipedia links (and therefore labels, aliases and possibly even some of the properties) are a mess. Initially almost all of the articles were connected to the second item independently of which of the two concepts they talked about and some likely combine the concepts in the same article.

Any help with clearing this up and making the two entities more stable would be welcome --André Costa (WMSE) (talk) 13:07, 3 July 2015 (UTC)

I believe the first two are probably the same concept (the activity) whereas the third is for the boats used in this activity.

scapegoating (Q2912143)/scapegoat (Q245122)[edit]

Items involved: Q2912143Talk, Q245122Talk Status: X mark.svg   not resolved

We seem to need items about
  1. the scapegoat described in a passage of the Bible. fr:Bouc à Azazel, apparently he:שעיר לעזאזל (מצווה)
  2. the more general use of scapegoats in old Middle East (en:Scapegoat)
  3. the figurative concept of scapegoating (en:Scapegoating, apparently en:שעיר לעזאזל (חברה))

Most items in scapegoat (Q245122) seem to mix meaning 1 or 2 and meaning 3. I think that when an item mixes two meanings, it should use the more general item.

If anyone solves this one, can I be pinged :). ? -Zolo (talk) 07:47, 27 July 2015 (UTC)

Sacred Song (Q1372064)/psalm (Q856713)[edit]

Items involved: Q1372064Talk, Q856713Talk Status: X mark.svg   not resolved

Problem with what a psalm/salme is. In English a Psalm is not what in Danish (and other Nordic languages) is typically referred to as a "salme". We could make Q856713 to mean psalm as they appear in the Bible and related books, while Q1372064 to mean songs as used in (Christian?) liturgy (Christian Hymns). Then loads of songs marked up with P31 as a Q856713 should be moved to Q1372064 and some language links should be moved. --Finn Årup Nielsen (fnielsen) (talk) 20:28, 10 August 2015 (UTC)

Italian and some other Wikipedia articles more granular than English Wikipedia, causing two problems needing fixing:
  1. Cannot create an interlanguage link for it:Disastro del Vajont to en:Vajont Dam. Temporarily fixed by adding a link to a redirect at en:Vajont dam disaster which partly works but not entirely.
  2. The draft article at en:Draft:Vajont dam (translation for checking and merging, taken from IT wiki) appears to be interlinked to Italian but should not be - it's a working draft only not an article.

It appears that both items describe the same concept. Some wikipedias (e.g. German and Swedish) have pages for both items, whereas most just have a page linked to one item or the other. It is possible that Q742993 focuses mostly on the *concept* of the international code, whereas Q154015 is a list of codes, but it's not the same in all languages. It is likely that some wiki pages should be moved from one item to the other, but I don't know most of those languages. --Lou Crazy (talk) 17:24, 30 October 2015 (UTC)

Items involved: Q303479Talk, Q16674976Talk Status: X mark.svg   not resolved

I don't quite understand why hermaphrodite and hermaphroditism are separate. After removing two links to stubby and not very informative seeming pages from hermaphrodite (eo and uk), there is no overlap left: none of the other language versions seems to have separate pages for these concepts. So I added the statement that hermaphroditism is "said to be the same as" hermaphrodite. I was about to boldly simply merge the two pages, as they seem redundant, when I reconsidered (I saw that hermaphrodite lists hermaphroditism as "has quality") and decided to ask here for advice how to proceed. I do not wish to screw up the concept of the database, just in case the separation of these two pages was intentional after all. --Florian Blaschke (talk) 03:53, 7 December 2015 (UTC)
