No links on Polish disambiguation page[edit]

On this page there are no links although the item is created: . What should be done to fix it?

Generally purging the page fixes it. As it is, it is already fixed. --Tagishsimon (talk) 18:08, 2 November 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Thank you: the purging helped. Kamdenek (talk) 18:37, 2 November 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Repeted Spanish French and German names[edit]

I cannot introduce the name of the Spanish village Asón in Spanish, French and German because Wikidata has other items called Asón, this is quite common, especially in Spain, for diferent villages to have the same name, so the tool should allow us to introduce it. --Lojwe (talk) 01:01, 3 November 2021 (UTC)[reply]

@Lojwe: For each language, the item label PLUS the item description must be unique. (i.e. imagine concatenating them together.) It is, thus, possible to have as many items for a village called Asón as you wish, so long as each of them has a different description. If you continue to have problems, add the description first, and save; and then add the label (b/c caching issues arise, which, as I say, are generally sorted by description, save, label). --Tagishsimon (talk) 01:07, 3 November 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Thanks! It works now :) Lojwe (talk) 01:13, 3 November 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Where to find your SPARQL query service in Git/Svn/etc.[edit]

I am the current maintainer of NLM's linked data endpoint for MeSH (MeSH RDF), at The Web UI is based on EBI lodestar, but yours is so nice. Where can I find source code so that I may consider how to modify my endpoint to add these more advanced features?

Perhaps ? --Tagishsimon (talk) 18:28, 3 November 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Seems so - they mention need for zip/unzip for composer to work correctly. I will try it. DanizenAtWork (talk) 21:40, 3 November 2021 (UTC)[reply], but I had to add export GIT_SSL_NO_VERIFY=true to check out Wikibase from git. DanizenAtWork (talk) 21:48, 3 November 2021 (UTC)[reply]
We were wrong. Since the FQDN for they sparql query is different, it is not actually a part of Wikibase. It is here - DanizenAtWork (talk) 22:17, 3 November 2021 (UTC)[reply]
I'll be intereted to hear if you get it up & running. At least you're on the path. --Tagishsimon (talk) 22:28, 3 November 2021 (UTC)[reply]
@DanizenAtWork: the query service UI is at / Lucas Werkmeister (WMDE) (talk) 09:53, 8 November 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Entity Q28865 is not visible in SPARQL query results[edit]

Hi, according to, "Python" (Q28865) is instanceOf "dynamic programming language" (Q1268980), but it is not returned by following SPARQL query: "SELECT ?item WHERE { ?item wdt:P31 wd:Q1268980.}" ( Is it expected behavior?  – The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk • contribs) at 10:31, 18 November 2021‎ (UTC).[reply]

Yes, because wdt: returns best-rank statements, and the only best-rank statement in this case is Python (Q28865) instance of (P31) object-based language (Q899523), which has been set to preferred rank, whereas the other P31 statements on this item have normal rank. (Whether that one class should have preferred rank is a different question…) --Lucas Werkmeister (WMDE) (talk) 11:09, 18 November 2021 (UTC)[reply]


In case you need more samples to fix this. Here are four items with identical sitelinks:

@Jura1 Thanks for these examples. We did a lot of fixes around sitelinks this year and so we do not expect to see new cases. If you do find any please let us know about it.
I looked at the revision of the examples you provided -- they all come from last year. For the old cases they would have to be fixed manually. -Mohammed Sadat (WMDE) (talk) 12:06, 22 November 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Can you run the report that identifies all of them? If there are just a few, it may be practical to do so. --- Jura 11:37, 24 November 2021 (UTC)[reply]
The two seem to be part of pile from August 2021 I just came across. --- Jura 15:25, 24 November 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Requesting renaming of an item[edit]

Cooch Behar Uchcha Madhyamic must be renamed to 'Cooch Behar Uchca Madhyamik Vidyalaya' as the current title is mispronounced.
