Hi! en:Subscription (finance) should not be at Q322948, en:Subscription business model should be there instead. The description (in English) is also wrong.

Solus (Q7558961)/Solus (Q22013701)[edit]

Items involved: Q7558961Talk, Q22013701Talk Status: X mark.svg   not resolved

These pages refer to a same OS, SolusOS is the old name. For example the page of es.wikipedia is "SolusOS" but is about Solus. The en.wikipedia is in both SolusOS and Solus wikidata. I can't do an automatic merge because in the no.wikipedia there are page for Solus and SolusOS and both are in the wikidata corresponding.  – The preceding unsigned comment was added by Tearow (talk • contribs) at 25. 1. 2018, 16:50‎ (UTC).
w:no:Solus Operating System: Den er etterfølgeren til SolusOS. So not the same thing. Matěj Suchánek (talk) 08:45, 27 January 2018 (UTC)
I think SolusOS deserve to be quote in the Solus Operating System wiki but it's true to say it's not exactly the same thing but Solus is the OS following SolusOS by the same developer but just without the Debian-based things. The work in wikidata will be facilitate because there are only the no wiki who do the differance between these two distro's thers just don't talk about SolusOS or quote this in "history" or other section. It's just my point of view but perhaps we need to keep these two pages after all. Tearow (talk) 18:56, 31 January 2018 (UTC)

This appears to be the same thing.--Shisma (talk) 19:30, 31 January 2018 (UTC)
At first glance, it appears to be two separate but related concepts in Czech: Sníženina vs. Proláklina. I know nothing of Czech, but relying on Google translation, Sníženina seems to relate to a general vertically-concave shape, while Proláklina relates to a specific landform. Proláklina may also specifically imply negative elevations, which would make it slightly different to English "depression", which is relative to the surrounding landscape rather than sea level. Again, I have exactly zero proficiency in Czech, but it seems to me Wikidata would lose something in that language if we merged these two items. — Ipoellet (talk) 20:35, 31 January 2018 (UTC)

@Rigadoun, Varlaam: can you please explain why? --Liuxinyu970226 (talk) 10:16, 31 July 2018 (UTC)
  • Yes, you're right. I think the es pages need to be merged, since they have virtually the same content except for their transliteration of the English word "quart." quart (Q1058120) should really have a description like "unit of volume, with various definitions," should be a subclass of (P279) (not instance of (P31)) units of volume, and that then has part (P527) for the specific measures of the U.S. dry, U.S. liquid, Imperial, Winchester, etc. (I don't think any of these exist yet, but those could have conversion to SI unit (P2370).) The exception would be the French page, which in addition to those volume units has some other dimensions; really it should be separate and have this page as a subclass.

Items involved: Q1246097Talk, Q614175Talk Status: X mark.svg   not resolved

Q614175 is, as per description, about a Russian song which has a very well known English cover version. Many Wikipedia articles linked to this item rather describe the cover version than the original Russian song, while for example in fiwiki the lemma suggests that a Finnish version of the song does also exist. The conflict is because of dewiki, which is the only project to have separate articles for the Russian and the English version. Q1246097 is only containing the Russian language song article in dewiki, whereas the statements in Q614175 seem to lack consistency (coountry of origin: Russia, publication date: refers to English cover). I'm unsure how to deal with this, here MisterSynergy suggested to create a separate item for every cover version. Best regards, --→ «« Man77 »» 07:47, 8 May 2018 (UTC)

The corn_starch item includes Maicena as a spanish translation, even though it is technically a brand of corn starch. Also this brand of corn starch is the object of another item, Maizena, which contains only three languages.

The difference between these two items seems to ride on the distinction between two concepts on jawiki. Can anyone elucidate this distinction? — Ipoellet (talk) 19:01, 16 August 2018 (UTC)
@Okkn:? -- 22:06, 16 August 2018 (UTC)
w:ja:建築 is exactly same as w:construction, but w:ja:施工 is a little different. "施" means "to perform" and "工" means "engineering works". Both "建設" and "施工" can be verbs in Japanese, and objects of "建設(する)" are buildings or other structures, but those of "施工(する)" are construction plans or works. So they can't be merged. --Okkn (talk) 06:14, 17 August 2018 (UTC)
And how about no label (Q24897655) (ja:工事)? --Liuxinyu970226 (talk) 08:54, 18 August 2018 (UTC)
@Okkn: - thank you! However, en:Construction is linked to ja:建設 (construction (Q385378)), not to ja:建築. 建築 is linked to en:Architecture (architecture (Q12271)). Are those links correct? Also, do you think it would be fair to represent 施工 in English as "engineering profession"? Or perhaps "action of engineering design" ("to engineer")? — Ipoellet (talk) 02:02, 19 August 2018 (UTC)
Object of "工事(する)" is a road, a tunnel, a river, etc. "建設(する)" and "建築(する)" are usually used when we newly build something, but "工事(する)" is usually used when mending or repairing infrastructures.
@Ipoellet: Current links (en:Construction to ja:建設 and en:Architecture to ja:建築) seem OK to me. Japanese "建築" also has the meanings of both "process" and its "product". "建設(する)" just means "to build", but "建築(する)" contains a strong nuance of designing, in addition to building.
"施工" doesn't refer to the profession, but only refer to the action. --Okkn (talk) 09:15, 20 August 2018 (UTC)
I wonder if no label (Q24897655) can be merged to Constructing (Q329637) or not. --Liuxinyu970226 (talk) 05:50, 24 August 2018 (UTC)
What's the difference between construction (Q385378) and Constructing (Q329637)? "Constructing" is also "建設", rather than "工事". --Okkn (talk) 07:01, 24 August 2018 (UTC)

@AchimP: because a Japanese user said that both can be translated to same "建設" in Japanese. --Liuxinyu970226 (talk) 10:41, 30 August 2018 (UTC)
Well, if Google translates "建設" correctly back into German ("Bau"), I would say, it matches neither nor. But then again, you can never trust Google's translations, can you. "Bauausführung" refers only to buildings (houses, etc.) and is a certain phase in the process of creating a building, which is the actual manual labor on the real estate site. "Konstruieren (Technik)" is an abstract term and describes the planning on the drawboard of any technical item. Hope that helps. --AchimP (talk) 10:48, 30 August 2018 (UTC)

Solar Hijri calendar (Q950135)/Persian calendar (Q180311)[edit]

Items involved: Q950135Talk, Q180311Talk Status: X mark.svg   not resolved

There are a lot of incorrect wiki links here. For instance, the fr wiki article Calendrier Persan is about the Solar Hijri calendar exclusively, whereas the en wiki Persian Calendars article includes other historical calendars, and they're both on the same item. However I suspect a large number of these articles currently linked to the "multiple calendars" item on with the en wiki article are actually about the Solar one so it might be easier to do the merge the other way around. I'm going to start working on it but thought I'd put a notice here as I might not finish. Mvolz (talk) 10:23, 7 September 2018 (UTC)
On second thought, I think the easiest thing to do is to first move out the few articles about Iranian calendars to their own item, then merge these two items automatically. This reduces the amount of manual work that has to be done. Mvolz (talk) 10:32, 7 September 2018 (UTC)

It's not clear to me whether no label (Q33677837) refers to the settlement that is the seat of local government, or the building (town hall, casa alcaldía).

Items involved: Q719226Talk, Q11215470Talk, Q324233Talk, Q1630695Talk, Q16220775Talk Status: X mark.svg   not resolved

This is a tangled mess of conflicts mostly created by inconsistent naming in different languages.
The german article de:Schnellboot is about fast attack craft (Q719226) which is a ship type. However, in the rest of the world "Schnellboot" refers to E-boat (Q11215470) which is a specific class (or classes) of torpedo armed fast attack craft made by Lürssen for the Kriegsmarine in the 1930's and 1940's. German Wikipedia does not have any article about those boats and I don't think there is a term for them in german. I have only seen them called "Schnellboote der Kriegsmarine".
The other way around. The english article en:Motor Torpedo Boat is about specific class of British torpedo armed fast attack craft. In most other countries the term "Motor Torpedo Boat" is a more general term that includes British MTB's, US PT-boats, italian MAS-boats etc.
There is no term for "Fast attack craft" in swedish. A torpedo armed FAC is "torpedbåt" and a missile armed FAC is "robotbåt". The term "torpedbåt" is also used for the 19th century steam powered torpedo boat (Q324233). The prefix "motor" (as in "motortorpedbåt") is reserved for light vessels with a planing (non-displacing hull). This corresponds to the previous point.
In russian (as well as ukrainian an bulgarian I think) the article ru:Торпедный катер corresponds to torpedo boat (Q324233). However, this item is linked to ru:Миноносец which I think corresponds to torpedo-boat destroyer (Q16220775).

How can this be untangled?
I think fast attack craft (Q719226) should be the most general item with subitems for gun-, torpedo-, and missile armed FACs. torpedo-boat destroyer (Q16220775) and torpedo boat (Q324233) should be reserved for the 19th century steam powered warships. Then we have to come up with a way to separate the MTB "type" from the MTB "class". Any ideas?

The Settlers III (Q2579674)/The Settlers (Q1163239)[edit]

Items involved: Q2579674Talk, Q1163239Talk Status: X mark.svg   not resolved

English (and some other language wikipedias) have The Settlers III as an independent article. On German Wikipedia, all Settlers games are handled in the main "Die Siedler" article with extensive subsections. Pointing to the German series article fails for the obvious reason that the English series article already points to that as it's German counterpart. Pointing to a subsection is apparently not possible using Wikidata as it complains about the very same duplication problem. tl;dr In English Wikipedia there's The Settlers and The Settlers III, in German Wikipedia there's only Die Siedler and Die Siedler#Die Siedler III, but no standalone article. --Mastacheata (talk) 21:30, 26 October 2018 (UTC)
