Property for artists included in MTV Germany. Eurohunter (talk) 10:11, 15 August 2019 (UTC)


MTV France ( and MTV Spain ( has the same ids but different content. Schould they be requested individually or merged? If merged which one would be "the main" id? Eurohunter (talk) 10:15, 15 August 2019 (UTC)

    @Eihel: Have you source for number of ids? Eurohunter (talk) 00:25, 24 August 2019 (UTC)
    @Eurohunter: Under Source, probably. And you, did you follow external links or cancel at random? It is necessary:
    • what I put
    • or a * at the beginning of the external link.
    With *, you get too much response. And in the state, no response is obtained. Choose. —Eihel (talk) 00:48, 24 August 2019 (UTC)
    @Eihel: Did you counted all 13500 from A to 9? Eurohunter (talk) 07:50, 24 August 2019 (UTC)
    According to you, Eurohunter? Do you think I'm crazy enough to count all entries one by one? Did you notice "circa" on the line? This is an indication for the future Property:

  • As well @Eurohunter: there will always be artists, so always incomplete (Q21873886)Eihel (talk) 00:55, 24 August 2019 (UTC)
    I thought it refers to individual artist id (has one id or few in one database). Eurohunter (talk) 07:50, 24 August 2019 (UTC)
  • external links is bad —Eihel (talk) 02:20, 24 August 2019 (UTC)
    How it is bad? Eurohunter (talk) 07:50, 24 August 2019 (UTC)
    external links = gives results. Why did you erase it? (* gives too many results and gives no result) —Eihel (talk) 09:19, 24 August 2019 (UTC)
    @Eihel: www is redudant in this case. Eurohunter (talk) 09:54, 24 August 2019 (UTC)
    @Eihel: I spot it in past proposal and followed. Then there should be full url with "http://". ✓ Done Eurohunter (talk) 10:01, 24 August 2019 (UTC)
    @Eurohunter: What redundancy are you talking about ?! The idea is to find the WP pages likely to be linked to this identifier. external link does not go in the property, but in the TP of the property. This is used to add identifiers to items connected by WP. Do not add http://, it is already defaulted on WP pages. Moreover, if it works here, for other cases, it will not work! I touched your proposal to help and not to deteriorate: do not feel outraged. It's really that needs to be put. —Eihel (talk) 10:22, 24 August 2019 (UTC)
    @Eihel: There can't be http automatically because half or majority web pages use https protocol. http, https or without http and https has different targets. Eurohunter (talk) 10:26, 24 August 2019 (UTC)
    Do you still think I'm inventing, Eurohunter? No: "…jeśli nie podano, domyślny to http://", from your own wiki! Hence the interest of the * I quoted above. I am not at my first creation of Property. —Eihel (talk) 11:38, 24 August 2019 (UTC)
