Panelház (Q1095072)/Panelák (Q17073908)[edit]

Items involved: Q1095072Talk, Q17073908Talk Status: X mark.svg   not resolved

The English Wikipedia has two different articles for the East-German term Plattenbau and the Czech term Panelák. However, the Czech Wikipedia article "Panelový dům" is associated with the Plattenbau article on the en-wiki, not with the Panelák article. And paradoxically, Wikidata use the Hungarian version "Panelház" as the English label for the "Plattenbau" item. The conflict is caused by English Wikipedia which doesn't have one general article about the general concept and possibly specific articles about specifics in individual countries. Spanish wikipedia has also the two articles (translated from en:). --ŠJů (talk) 18:02, 7 January 2017 (UTC)

* dinosaur interwikis need a fix These two items seem to need better sorting of the interwikis. The simple and en would seem to belong together, and the only one that has two is nlWP. I don't doubt that the items are different, I just doubt that the interwikis are correct, and I don't have the expertise of dinosaurs to make the picks.  — billinghurst sDrewth 11:56, 15 January 2017 (UTC)

A lot wiki's have just two pages: WP:Asian month and WP:Asian month/participants. The problem is that on most wiki's the project never took a flight so the most pages are still empty and not even translated. I made a (hopefully) clear oversight here.

Q26237088/conscientious objector (Q2930613)/conscientious objection to military service (Q5576246)[edit]

Items involved: Q2930613Talk, Q5576246Talk Status: X mark.svg   not resolved

The phenomenon in question is treated in en-WP as Conscientious objector, in other language versions as Conscientious objection (e.g. de-WP: Kriegsdienstverweigerung). Redirections exist in WP, but as the two Wikidata items are in conflict, interwiki linking is not possible at the moment. --Jossi (talk) 11:32, 8 February 2017 (UTC)
@Jossi2: the problem is at the polish wikipedia and both items are quite large, so a merge would not be logical. Also both wikidata items are different. Q262... is a human who refuses to go to military service. Q557... is about the concept of refusing any militairy obligation. Q.Zanden questions? 21:29, 29 May 2017 (UTC)
@QZanden: Well, in my opinion the Polish article pl:Obdżektor could easily be integrated into pl:Odmowa odbycia służby wojskowej, but this is, of course, a matter of the Polish Wikipedia alone. I see the difference in meaning between the two items, but the actual content of, e.g., en:Conscientious objector is more or less the same as pl:Odmowa odbycia służby wojskowej. Anyway, this is not the real problem. In fact, a merging of the two Wikidata entries wouldn't be necessary at all, if the conflict could be resolved via Wikipedia redirects; but at the core of the problem is the fact that this simply doesn't work. In Wikidata, the list of linked Wikipedia articles is showing not the redirect lemma but the lemma of the target article (i. e. an article belonging to a completely different Wikidata entry) and what's even worse, the redirect in Wikipedia gets a "Wikidata entry not found" label and cannot be linked to the correct Wikidata entry, though this entry definitely exists (so, for example, in de:Kriegsdienstverweigerer, which is a redirect to de:Kriegsdienstverweigerung). This makes not only correct interwiki linking impossible, but also correct association of (redirect) articles with Wikidata entries. This looks to me like a fundamental bug in the construction of Wikidata. --Jossi (talk) 16:08, 30 May 2017 (UTC)
This general problem is now addressed at Wikidata:Requests for comment/Allow the creation of links to redirects in Wikidata. --Jossi (talk) 10:02, 22 June 2017 (UTC)

shoulder (Q1408712) (mixed meanings)[edit]

Items involved: Q1408712Talk Status: X mark.svg   not resolved

"Shoulders" ("hard roadsides") which are not stopping lanes.
Interwiki mix two items together. In many countries, there exists a term for a hard roadside beyond the guiding line marking a margin of the carriageway. Is is part of the road surface but not part of the carriageway. The lane is usually narrower than a car, it cannot be used as an emergency stopping lane. It is used rather for pedestrians, possibly also for cyclists, and to provide a safe distance from the guardrails or a ditch. The stopping lane is a specific broader type, used only at motorways and highways. There exist two different terms for the two cases in many countries and languages. E.g. Czech uses "krajnice" for the narrower case and "odstavný pruh" for the emergency stopping lane. We should split the two meanings. --ŠJů (talk) 03:12, 9 February 2017 (UTC)
@ŠJů: they might have another word for the emergency stopping lane, but they do not have an article about it. I don't know if the English wp has one? Q.Zanden questions? 21:29, 29 May 2017 (UTC)
Indeed, and at least in China, emergency parking/driving even on such too narrow shoulders are also legitimate (although engine (Q44167) of your vehicle is likely to be broken if you really do that). To me there's more than some splitting actions to do. --Liuxinyu970226 (talk) 11:43, 15 June 2017 (UTC)

Game Maker (Q243720) & GameMaker: Studio (Q16195922) need a merge[edit]

Items involved: Q243720Talk, Q16195922Talk Status: X mark.svg   not resolved

The "Game Maker" software has changed its name through years to become "GameMaker: Studio". The first item Game Maker (Q243720) has been setup by a bunch of wikipedians for a series of 25 or so wikis among which ar, de, fr, jp, it, and simple. The second item GameMaker: Studio (Q16195922) supports 8 wikis, among which en, but also ar, de and ru, which therefore are using both, each for two articles, one for each version of the software. There is no doubt that these two objects are redundant : same software author, same company, same purpose. The [en] article does not tell about the previous version "Game Maker", but there are a few references which refer to it. Therefore, I think that merge shall be proceeded. (•) What do you think of this ?
Since I have never done such a procedure, with the potential added complexity of dual links (ar, de, ru), (•) does someone want to carry it out ? Please, could you notify me (@Eric.LEWIN:), I'll be pleased to follow the procedure and learn. If nobody has been able to do it towards mid-april (until which I am a bit "underfreetimed"), I'll jump in with help of the merge help page (french version). Any advice welcome.

water hardness (Q192905)/hard water (Q22988272)[edit]

When attempting to merge these items which discuss practically the same subject, I noticed that there are articles in Esperanto (of which I know very little) and Arabic (which I do not know at all) under both reference numbers, which prevent a straightforward merger. --Schlosser67 (talk) 06:56, 28 April 2017 (UTC)
@Schlosser67:, these two items are not the same. Q192... is about the scale to measure the hardness of water, Q229... is about hard water, a specific value for the hardness of water. Q.Zanden questions? 16:29, 1 May 2017 (UTC)
Perhaps they are not exactly the same, but Q22988272 is a subset of Q192905, as you pointed out. Is that not an argument in favour of merging, rather than against it? At least, the English article on "soft water" could easily be absorbed into the one on "hard water", the latter being the redirection target of "water hardness" anyway. Possibly a question for the philosophers ... I haven't checked other languages yet. --Schlosser67 (talk) 19:10, 1 May 2017 (UTC)
@Schlosser67: no, that's not an argument in favor of merging these items. Every item, how small it differs from an other item, has its own right to exist. That is why subclass of (P279) and facet of (P1269) exist. Even for a city in the Netherlands has two seperate items, one about the city and the other about the community. The power of Wikidata is because we have all these small differences made more clear by all different items. Q.Zanden questions? 00:02, 2 May 2017 (UTC)
We'd better wait for what others (with the necessary language skills) have to say on this question, after they have looked at the contents of the articles related to the Wikidata items. Of course, the articles need work. But I am not sure whether I understand you at all, perhaps somebody else can explain it better? That a city and a community need not be the same thing, and can be substantially different from each other, is old news, but a different kettle of fish. Here we have a physical quantity that changes gradually. Do you mean to say we need wikidata items for any quantity, its low and its high values (compared to what?), and perhaps the values in between? By the way, looking at the wikidata pages, there seems to be an error: "water hardness" as the more general term should not be a facet of "hard water", it is rather the other way round. --Schlosser67 (talk) 06:57, 2 May 2017 (UTC)
Well, maybe the city and cummunity is not a good example for these items, but I meant to say that Q192... is a scale and Q229... is one value of that scale that is very largely used. Just like you have the pH-scale, and there is pH 7, or neutral water. Or there is water hardness, and drinking water where drinking water has a value for the hardness of the water. That might be some better example. Q.Zanden questions? 17:12, 2 May 2017 (UTC)

nutation (Q190009)[edit]

Items involved: Q190009Talk Status: X mark.svg   not resolved

There are two related but separate phenomena which are unfortunately both named "nutation" or similar in most languages.
  1. A component of the motion of a freely rotating rigid object e.g. a top. See Nutation (English), or de:Nutation (German)
  2. A component of the rotating motion of a planet under the influence of gravitational pull by moons, other planets or the central star. See Astronomical nutation (English), or de:Nutation_(Astronomie) (German)

Both kinds of nutation involve small periodic deviations of the mean axis of rotation. Both are accompanied by a second kind of motion called "precession" (or "Präzession"). So everything seems to be fine and dandy. However, the nutation of planets cannot possibly the same type of motion as the nutation of a top. The nutation of a planet is caused by a constantly varying torque by the gravitational pull of other objects. By contrast, the nutation of a top is defined to be a component of motion without any torque at all. It took physicists a bit to get this sorted. But since about 150 years it obviously is. See any physics majors textbook for the details. The formulas used to calculate the amplitude and frequency of the nutation are vastly different. In particular, it is impossible to regard one phenomenon as a limiting case for the other.

The German and the English Wikipedia dedicate separate articles to the two phenomena (see the links above). In other language versions I see:

  • Rigid-body definition and rigid-body explanation combined with the motions of the earth as an example (Spanish, Italian, Polish, Dutch, Russian). → inconsistent
  • Rigid-body definition, rigid-body explanation and rigid-body example (Croatian, Norwegian)
  • Astronomy definition and rigid-body definition in separate sections of a single article (Turkish) → not according to universal wikipedia principles (one article per concept)
  • Definition and explanation matching ridgid-body precession, rather than nutation (Nynorsk) → just wrong
  • Definition based on geometry of movements. No assertion on causes. Tops, planets and ammunition as an example (schottish, finnish) → does not match the definition given in physics textbooks

Not very surprisingly, the statements attached to this wikidata item are conflicting ("motions of the Earth", but also "\mathbf{\tau} = \mathbf{\Omega} \times \mathbf{L}"). The formula given is not useful to calculate the nutation of the earth. It is the formula connected to the rigid-body motion.

So what can be done to sort this mess? At minimum, there should be two separate items in wikidata for the two meanings. This would provide adequate goals for the German and the English article. But how about the other ~50 language versions, most of which misrepresent the item in some way?---<)kmk(>- (talk) 02:55, 28 May 2017 (UTC)

Aghouinite (Q4692450) & Agounit (Q2260996) are the same town but spelled differently because of transliteration issues. Two different articles in English appeared because one was written from the perspective of a Sahrawi controlled town in Western Sahara and the other from the perspective of a Morocco sub-division (this article also acknowledged that it was controlled by the Sahrawi Republic). It looks like Farsi and Urdu also created multiple articles for the topic based on the split in English. I merged the two English articles, but I'm not comfortable merging the Farsi and Urdu articles, though they are both clearly stubs and should be easy to merge. So now I don't know how to combine all the links with two articles in Urdu and two in Farsi for the same topic. --Vojen (talk) 21:50, 5 June 2017 (UTC)

It's not the same. The Kingdom of Denmark is a unitary state that comprises, in addition to Denmark proper, two autonomous constituent countries in the North Atlantic Ocean: Greenland and the Faroe Islands. So Denmark (Q35) is a part of Kingdom of Denmark (Q756617). Some Wikipedias describe both in one article. --тнояsтеn 18:26, 27 June 2017 (UTC)

Items involved: Q13054381Talk, Q3358117Talk, Q4361424Talk Status: X mark.svg   not resolved

1. I attached the German article "Felsbilder im Hochland von Sjunik" to Q13054381 (to an English and Spanish article). These two articles are about the international known Ughtasar petroglyphs. The German article is about the Ughtasar petroglyphs too but also about other petroglyphs of the region. The other petroglyphs were discovered and object of research only in recent years and are related to the petroglyphs of Ughtasar. I would like to keep the connection of the German article to the others.

2. The data object Q3358117 contains an Armenian, French and Dutch version of the subject "Ughtasar petroglyphs". This should be merged to the first data object.

3. The data object Q4361424 contains a Russian and a Belorussian version of the subject "petroglyphs of Armenia". These articles are less about petroglyphs as archaeological objects than about proving the astronomical and astrological knowledge and activities of the ancient "Armenians" with Armenian rock art, of which the authors are convinced. Here I do not recommend the association with the first data object.

Some languages are listed for one or the other, others for both. Of those listed for both, the Czech entry in Q1362225 is a redirect to a page listed at granary (Q114768) (a type of warehouse), the Dutch and Swedish entries in Q1362225 describe them as older terms for a warehouse, and I'm not sure about the two Danish entries. I don't know if the items from Q1362225 should be merged to Q181623, moved to Q114768, or kept separate either as duplicates or as a specific type of warehouse, but to describe both just as "warehouse" would still be confusing. --Peter James (talk) 19:05, 20 September 2017 (UTC)

For example the Icelandic Wikipedia article Aðalbláber is about the European blueberry, Vaccinium myrtillus, and links to Q5812410, while the Finnish Wikipedia article Mustikka is about the same species yet links to Q5413585, so the interwiki link between these two wikis is broken.

Items involved: Q178193Talk, Q12859788Talk Status: X mark.svg   not resolved

Noticed this while trying to find a link back from English Wikipedia "Steamship" to German "Dampfschiff". Going the other way round I found out that the german article uses the older 2012 object by MerllwBot like 58 other projects while the english (+simple english) is connected to a 2013 object by Sk!dbot. The english link (+ all statements) of the MerllwBot object got later (in 2015) changed to the smaller steam boat. As I can't read any of the other languages linked to the Sk!dbot object those needed to be checked if they could be merged into the MerllwBot object and the Sk!dbot object could be used for the steamboat then. --Steinfeld-feld (talk) 21:13, 1 November 2017 (UTC)
Edit: As I searched for "Dampfboot" eq. "steamboat" in German another object create by Sk!dbot of 2012 popped up. It's only used by the german and swedish Wikipedia. --Steinfeld-feld (talk) 21:30, 1 November 2017 (UTC)

Omuramba (Q913969)[edit]

Items involved: Q913969Talk Status: X mark.svg   not resolved

This item muddles two different things together in my opinion: One geographic region and one conceptual term. The German (de:Oshana-System) and Finnish (fi:Oshana (maantiede)) Wikipedia articles, respectively, deal with a specific region which lies in central northern Namibia and which is characterized by a system of dry river beds (i. e. en:Intermittent rivers). At the same time, in the northeastern part of Namibia, intermittent rivers in general are named by a specific term: The en:Herero word Omuramba, which is what the Englisch (en:Omiramba, the plural form of Omuramba) and French (fr:Omuramba) Wikipedia articles deal with. This word has been adapted to the other languages used in Namibia, such as English, Afrikaans and German, to denote such an intermittent river in the northeast of the country. In other parts of the country, the Afrikaans word af:Rivier is used for the same concept of an intermittent river (see de:Rivier), as is en:Wadi in Arabic-speaking regions and en:Creek in Australia, for instance. Therefore, Omuramba is a regional conceptual term, whilst Oshana (which derives from a different language, en:Ovambo language) denotes a region/water system. If no-one objects, I will disentangle them in a way that the English and French articles will receive a new Wikidata item for the concept (which, in the German version de:Omuramba, is a redirect to de:Rivier) whilst the existing item will continue to contain the German and Finnish article as well as the link to Commons which also deals with the specific region. --Andropov (talk) 09:54, 7 November 2017 (UTC)

BMW 2 Series (Q12062562)/BMW M2 (Q31837867)/BMW 2 Series (F22) (Q20748311)[edit]

Already explained on the Talk:Q12062562. But here briefly again: BMW 2 Series (Q12062562) is used by most languages for overview articles about the BMW 2 Series (except german and polish), BMW M2 (Q31837867) is used for these two articles and BMW 2 Series (F22) (Q20748311) is used by most languages for the coupe version F22/convertible F23 except again german an catalan this time that use it for the sporty M2. What I think would be the best solution is BMW M2 (Q31837867) for all over view articles, BMW 2 Series (F22) (Q20748311) for all articles of the coupe/convertible version and BMW M2 (Q31837867) or a completly new object for the BMW M2.
