Requests for deletions
Items that do not meet Wikidata's notability policy can be deleted. Please nominate items for deletions on this page under the "Requests" section below. If it is obvious vandalism, just add the page here (gadget available), or ping an administrator to delete it. Contact can also be made with an administrator in #wikidataconnect.

Please use {{Q+}} the first time you mention an item. Unless you use the gadget, please also ping the item's creator in your request (or ping the bot operator, when appropriate) if 1) the user is still active on Wikidata and 2) the user has contributed the majority of information in that item.

Please use Wikidata:Properties for deletion if you want to nominate a property for deletion.

Duplicate items should be merged, not deleted: see Help:Merge.

This is not the place to request undeletion. Please use Wikidata:Administrators' noticeboard instead.

Ervina (Q15830561): Mari female given name: (delete | history | links | entity usage | logs)

Unused, previously incorrectly used, likely malformed entry. One might be looking for Q16747215 or Q9254866 or Q104713150 --- Jura 10:53, 7 January 2021 (UTC)[reply]

  • I reverted some of the recent edits and merged Q104713150. Peter James (talk) 14:32, 7 January 2021 (UTC)[reply]
  • Эрвина is romanizing as Ervina, if matters. This is not a feminine analogue of the "mainland" European name Erwin(a), this is of Volga Finnic origin. --Wolverène (talk) 20:55, 8 January 2021 (UTC)[reply]
See Q991038. --Wolverène (talk) 21:04, 8 January 2021 (UTC)[reply]
  • @Peter James: If it's a conflation, reverting my edits wont help. --- Jura 10:39, 19 January 2021 (UTC)[reply]
    From when it was created it was stable for several years, then an incorrect statement was added that was not reverted. Peter James (talk) 11:35, 19 January 2021 (UTC)[reply]
    • What edit was that? I think it was mostly empty for years which didn't really help determine what it was about. --- Jura 07:52, 25 February 2021 (UTC)[reply]
@Jura1, Peter James, Wolverène:  Resolved This seems to have moved from a deletion request into a content dispute and then settled down. Please reopen if deletion is still indicated. Bovlb (talk) 20:16, 15 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]
  • @Bovlb: It's still a conflation for which we have correctly formed items. Accordingly, the reminder should be deleted. If we keep/use this, it's unclear what name it actually refers or referred to. Wikidata aims to provide stable identifiers, not some that are repurposed into whatever people need at some point in time. --- Jura 06:40, 16 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]
  • @Jura1: I don’t really understand why you created Ervina (Q104713150). It corresponds 1:1 to the original meaning of Ervina (Q15830561) as evidenced by the first version. I don’t see why later erroneous edits could create a conflation that wasn’t there when the item was first created. Just merge Ervina (Q104713150) back to Ervina (Q15830561). --Emu (talk) 10:56, 17 July 2021 (UTC)[reply]
    • I don't see how an almost blank item from 2014 has any relevancy. Conflation can happen gradually. Help:Conflation_of_two_people tries to explain how to sort it out (for a slightly different topic). --- Jura 11:06, 17 July 2021 (UTC)[reply]
      • It matters because it precisely shows what this item is supposed to be about. As to conflation that can happen gradually: Maybe, but there’s a difference between conflation and faulty edits. --Emu (talk) 22:53, 18 July 2021 (UTC)[reply]
        • Do you have anything to support this view? i.e. that item should be about what a sitelink years ago may be been about (and not about whatever its statements and description state)? If not, let's stick to Help:Conflation_of_two_people --- Jura 08:29, 25 July 2021 (UTC)[reply]
          • @Jura1: No offense, but we have been stuck with this RfD for more than half a year. People have tried to close this discussion by merging several times only to be frustrated by your interpretation of the 2018 page Help:Conflation of two people you created yourself (it has no official status other than it has been discussed a few years ago on WD:PC). Might I suggest that this page no longer reflects current practice? --Emu (talk) 21:48, 25 July 2021 (UTC)[reply]
    • +1 for merge. --Infovarius (talk) 08:32, 12 October 2021 (UTC)[reply]
  • We don't have page either that says items shouldn't be repurposed, despite that being a key points of Wikidata. There seems to be consensus that there are indeed several names to be considered for which we should have items. It's clear that somehow this page leads people to merge items despite Help:Merging or Help:Conflation of two people advising people of the contrary. If there isn't really anything to support the merger, what are we trying to gain by insisting on it? --- Jura 11:00, 27 July 2021 (UTC)[reply]
    • Well, there’s a lot to support the merger. You just don’t accept those arguments. --Emu (talk) 11:59, 27 July 2021 (UTC)[reply]
    • I just see one (+you) and the person didn't even bother to explain it. It's really bad practice to merge items when an experienced user lists them here. Besides, mergers need to comply with Help:Merge. --- Jura 08:07, 29 July 2021 (UTC)[reply]

English adjectives insubordinately imported by GZWDer (flood)[edit]

The import was done in nov 2020. None of these items make any sense and the source WordData seems bogus/unreliable when it comes to adjectives. See the example adjective reasoning (L339763) which is not found in other dictionaries.

We who edit lexemes would like others to first seek approval before mass editing or adding lexemes because we have seen that there are many things that can go wrong.

All items are here: CC @Nikki, GZWDer:--So9q (talk) 15:16, 27 January 2021 (UTC)[reply]

I am going to check other dictionaries and please wait for some time.--GZWDer (talk) 15:29, 27 January 2021 (UTC)[reply]
@So9q: Minus entries found in English Wiktionary, 1124 left (this is still not do be deleted for now, as I am going to filter it further).--GZWDer (talk) 15:42, 27 January 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Symbol wait.svg Wait leaning toward Symbol delete vote.svg Delete (given that on Wikidata talk:Lexicographical data the discussion went mostly nowhere...). All of this import are useless right now and most of them are not truly lexemes (being in a dictionary - Wiktionary or not - is not enough to be a Lexemes), at the very least a *lot* of cleaning is needed. Cheers, VIGNERON (talk) 16:36, 27 January 2021 (UTC)[reply]
@VIGNERON: The category I compared with is wikt:Category:English adjectives, which contains only lexeme (at least in Wiktionary's POV). Previously there are a number of English adverbs imported from Wiktionary, and they does not seems more reliable than 7315 (=8439-1124) adjectives matched.--GZWDer (talk) 17:45, 27 January 2021 (UTC)[reply]
@GZWDer: no, it obviously does not. Right at the beggining, I see 0D and 0d which is the same lexeme (not even by Wiktionary's POV, the second one explicitely says it the same lexeme as the first!). And just because other data are bad is not an excuse at all to add more bad data. Cheers, VIGNERON (talk) 17:52, 27 January 2021 (UTC)[reply]
@VIGNERON: I'm not planning to add more (without a discussion first), but previously there're some large import from Wiktionary, see Wikidata:Requests for permissions/Bot/SixTwoEightBot.--GZWDer (talk) 16:07, 28 January 2021 (UTC)[reply]
@GZWDer: yes there was a lot of import ; this specific import was a bit poor but it seems to be mostly good. Sorry to be blunt but yours is mostly bad. Cheers, VIGNERON (talk) 16:44, 28 January 2021 (UTC)[reply]
@VIGNERON: My comment above said there are 7315 entries found in English Wiktionary and 1124 not found. Should we only focus on the latter?--GZWDer (talk) 16:46, 28 January 2021 (UTC)[reply]
@GZWDer: not sure to understand and we should focus and having good data (with a good source - en.wikt alone is not ideal, it should be cross-referenced with an other source - and a good data processing - for example adding at least one form). Cheers, VIGNERON (talk) 16:57, 28 January 2021 (UTC)[reply]
@VIGNERON: one of 19191 adverbs imported from Wiktionary and one of 7315 adjectives imported from WordData that may be found in Wiktionary. I think the only problematic thing is 1124 adjectives that can not be found in Wiktionary.--GZWDer (talk) 17:03, 28 January 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Maybe this other import from the wiktionary should also be deleted then. VIGNERON (talk) 17:20, 28 January 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Yes, I really hate using Wiktionary as a source (it is user-generated), but other sources may be not much better. Before importing a source, some discussion in Lexeme project talk page may be required.--GZWDer (talk) 18:33, 28 January 2021 (UTC)[reply]
@GZWDer: the best solution, especially for lexemes, is to cross multiple sources (timeo hominem unius libri). Cheers, VIGNERON (talk) 15:05, 31 January 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Yeah there are a number of sources in the Internet, but 1. published dictionary often does not contain machine-readable part of speech information and 2. other online database may be not reliable.--GZWDer (talk) 09:08, 1 February 2021 (UTC)[reply]

I'm curious what @SixTwoEight: thinks about their import and a possible deletion suggestion for that. I very recently wrote a best practice about referencing at least one form and the import from SixTwoEight does not seem to follow that (feel free to support, oppose or comment in the page with best practices so we can move forward as a community).--So9q (talk) 10:32, 29 January 2021 (UTC)[reply]

@So9q: Just checked, it looks like my bot imports do have forms but they are unreferenced (see for instance L204117). I do think that it's a good idea to add referenced forms to bot-imported lexemes. I will see if I can add references to those adverbs I imported. (there is the minor issue that the reference should really be for the lexeme, not the form, but since that's not possible referencing a form should be close enough) --SixTwoEight (talk) 00:03, 30 January 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Thanks a bunch for your reply. :) Do you want help adding references? I made Wikidata:LexUse recently and if I tweak it a little and add Wikisource we could easily add a lot of references semi-automatically. Feel free to discuss in the github repo and open issues.--So9q (talk) 05:48, 30 January 2021 (UTC)[reply]
@So9q: Can we close this request now? Bovlb (talk) 20:41, 15 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]
@Bovlb: No. GZWDer added sources to some which is nice :) but these 2700 are still missing a source/reference (other than the bogus one that was imported). IMO sources need to be provided or we should delete them. I am planning to write a tool to check for examples in Wikisource and that could probably help finding references to works where the word is used. A corpora of all Gutenberg English texts would be nice also to look up in if anyone has made that yet. @SixTwoEight, GZWDer: about making a corpora or helping out with a wikisource tool.--So9q (talk) 08:34, 16 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]
@So9q, SixTwoEight, GZWDer: 2 month later, it seems we're still at the same point. Is there anything that can be done and should we delete the 2700 lexemes left? Cheers, VIGNERON (talk) 07:09, 25 July 2021 (UTC)[reply]
@VIGNERON: I'll try to hack on LexUse/LexUtils and add Wikisource support within a week or two. That could hopefully yield some references/sources. IMO we are not in a rush here really. As a sampling I just did a quick search for for absentminded (L334208) and the third result contains "Prose is poetry without knowing it; it is as if an absentminded poet always said good morning in metre, or asked us to pass the potatoes in impromptu and unconscious rhyme." where it is used as an adjective to the best of my judgement so I added it as an example Interestingly enough the Q-item for the book was created by GZWDer and had no statements so I improved that a little too.--So9q (talk) 09:01, 25 July 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Seems this was restored despite the earlier deletion discussion --- Jura 15:01, 16 March 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Yes, I noticed that. Perhaps the benefits or not should be discussed in an RfC. Lymantria (talk) 15:48, 16 March 2021 (UTC)[reply]
This should not be decided on this page, when practically only a few editors would comment. The distinction of different categories is more common that e.g. Wikimedia set index article (Q15623926) and Wikimedia disambiguation page (Q4167410) which — not surprisingly as this is an idea — is not contested. Wostr (talk) 13:24, 17 March 2021 (UTC)[reply]
  • I think we could just implement the deletion that was decided. --- Jura 16:26, 17 March 2021 (UTC)[reply]

@Jura1, Lymantria, Wostr: This discussion has been open for months. The items are still linked by many, many other items which suggests WD:N #3 notability. I don’t really care about the merits of the different types of category items, but I don’t really understand why we are discussing this in this forum. I would just close it here, WD:PC or a RfC would be a better place to discuss this. --Emu (talk) 22:52, 30 August 2021 (UTC)[reply]

  • I thought it was bad practice to remove links prior to listing them for deletion, isn't it? --- Jura 22:57, 30 August 2021 (UTC)[reply]
    • It should be interesting if somehow one of the other admins would take a decision here. I decided in a similar case for deletion, I will hence not close this request as {{Not deleted}}. But I am open for a good discussion in an RfC as I suggested. Lymantria (talk) 05:21, 31 August 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Wrongly spelled Ateş, Turkish given name E4024 (talk) 19:54, 27 April 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Time2wait.svg On hold This item is linked from 1 other. --DeltaBot (talk) 20:00, 27 April 2021 (UTC)[reply]
I did not notice Alasanne Ates Diouf (Q62607405) but I guess Ates is not his given but middle name, probably part of the surname, showing some tribal link. (Naturally I may be wrong though.) --E4024 (talk) 20:52, 27 April 2021 (UTC)[reply]
@E4024: With the Transfermarkt player ID (P2446) of Ates Diouf (Q62607405) you can prove that it is his first name. Thus the data object Ates (Q97750907) has a structural benefit. --Gymnicus (talk) 16:05, 25 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]
What a wonderful source, wow! Thanks a lot. --E4024 (talk) 16:21, 25 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]
You can certainly argue about sources. But you can use them. I don't know how reliable it is exactly. That's why I wouldn't mind if you used the property reason for deprecation (P2241) and one of the data objects cannot be confirmed by other sources (Q25895909) or source known to be unreliable (Q22979588) in the statement. --Gymnicus (talk) 14:49, 26 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]
However, I cannot understand how you added the language English to that so-called first name. Is the lingua franca in Senegal English? Does this guy have an "English surname" such as "Diouf"? You are very able to find practical solutions to practical questions. If you decided all those changes you made to this item and to that of the above-referred footballer, you are my favourite problem solver here. I will ask your help in the future wherever I am stuck in such dilemmas. --E4024 (talk) 16:32, 25 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]
That was my fault. In Senegal, of course, French is spoken and not English. Sorry Of course, that would have to be changed for the data. Thanks for the hint. --Gymnicus (talk) 14:49, 26 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Not at all. You can also change the language to some indigenous language of Senegal; as long as you enjoy this much liberty... BTW who else from France, Belgium or Monaco we know with the name "Ates"? I mean excepting Turks with the name "Ateş" wrongly spelt... --E4024 (talk) 14:55, 26 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]
  • We need français native speakers here, like Fralambert; Lymantria, is this name notable? Is there anyone else with this name in French, or in some other language, while we -at least myself- are not very sure if this is the "given name" of the said person... E4024 (talk) 14:36, 4 July 2021 (UTC)[reply]
@E4024, Gymnicus: German politician Ates Gürpinar (Q54821874) uses this variant of the name himself. I think we can therefore close this discussion as Symbol keep vote.svg Keep, don’t you think? --Emu (talk) 16:44, 13 July 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Not for me. He does not use it "himself", German authorities oblige the Turks to write their names in German letters, no normal Turkish parent will think of giving their son a name like Ates which does not exist. BTW his surname is Gürpınar (Q66739332). Ask his father if you do not believe me. They brought their family name with them from Turkey. --E4024 (talk) 16:55, 13 July 2021 (UTC)[reply]
  • Symbol keep vote.svg Keep in use & referenced. It doesn't really matter how people ought to write their name. --- Jura 17:40, 13 July 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Actually, German authorities don’t force you to change your name. In any case: The name exists if it is used, especially so if it’s used in official documents of a sovereign country. Epistemological discussions of this sort are interesting, but not really relevant to Wikidata. --Emu (talk) 17:43, 13 July 2021 (UTC)[reply]
We will have a problem if we start writing people's names in the way some thinks they ought to be rather than in the way the reference we use does. --- Jura 17:52, 13 July 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Oh really? Of course your comments do not surprise me, when you added here hundreds of Turkish surnames with their references but for some reason you never added the "native language" nor "language of work or name" to those items, although it (Turkish) was written in the sources you yourself used. You also claimed Ertekin to be an "unknown language" surname, remember? You also invented, sorry introduced a thingy for "name without diacritical etc" (if there are two different names why do we need that?), and in every occasion you found in ORCID or any other place a misspelled Turkish given or surname -bots do not use ş,ı,ü,ğ if you do not teach them- you added the "without diacritical marks" alternative names and surnames you opened to those people but in many of those cases you only added the name or surname of non-diacritical treasure, without using the other one (the name or surname, it was somehow enough for you to use only a name or a surname...) which already was present in WD. I can imagine you have an agenda about all this but of course I have no doubts about your good faith. (However, when you asked some sort of admin button, I saw that other people had doubts to give you the button.) Maybe you can declare your project to the community. Best regards to all. E4024 (talk) 19:21, 13 July 2021 (UTC)[reply]
At least you concede that my contributions are referenced. Apparently, something you consider optional [1][2].
Thanks for giving me credit for the compilation method of the US census surname index, it's entirely undeserved though. I can't make much sense of the remainder of your comment, but it seems even further from Q97750907 anyways. I suppose we can close this as "not done". --- Jura 08:46, 14 July 2021 (UTC)[reply]
  • As Mr Ateş Gürpınar was given as an example here, I had added his real name, not manipulated by German authorities, in this link, but my contribution was removed. People are free to add here 5783 sources to his manipulated name, that is irrelevant. It takes at least five centuries for a foreign name to enter another language, and only then one can claim a "new name" (with x etymology), say like Muhammet in Turkish. --E4024 (talk) 14:42, 14 July 2021 (UTC)[reply]

{{Notdone}} @Jura1, E4024: I’m closing this. The deletion request hinges on the notion that this name does not exist. It has been shown that it does. It might be “false” or “wrong” or “forced upon”, but it is used in reality. That’s what counts in Wikidata. --Emu (talk) 11:10, 17 July 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Is there any independent, serious coverage about any of the items in question? --Emu (talk) 18:57, 26 July 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Thanks for letting me know about commons thou. That's such useful info. Also no, I don't think all of these are user-generated or the other, cuz I picked these carefully from many different sources around. Many of these are online copies of newspaper appearances or national media sources having a large editorial team in Turkey. And I do believe we're not creating an encyclopedic Wikipedia article here. More than one source shud be enough to prove an item's data-related notability which is true and trusted knowledge. I'm aware that we don't want to stack false information into our database and so you can be sure I don't. I'm a data specialist irl. --Palaangelino (talk) 19:12, 26 July 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Second, this is yet another item of User:Megatron34 who already managed to convice User:Mahir256 and User:Taketa to restore this item. This users is trying to get me to restore another item without notability on my talk page. I would suggest to Symbol delete vote.svg Delete this item and probably all items by the same user (I haven’t checked them all). --Emu (talk) 21:45, 21 August 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Sorry, I did not mention the first DR, simply because I had forgotten about it. I DR'ed Coşkun Çetin (Q108001568), for which reason I looked at the other contributions by the same user and saw this one. I cannot understand why these people would be notable. OTOH, maybe like in Commons and WPs we should develop a "deletion request message" gadget and seeing my messages of deletion on a user's talk page I would remember to say it is the second time I am DR'ing an item.

  • Symbol keep vote.svg Keep I don't get the point of why convincing(?) 2 different admins is not enough for you two. And nobody but you both are trying to delete all my items forcing "they're not notable." I don't know how E4024 is saying Marmara Gazetesi is "clearly" making promotion and also he is requesting a deletion for my another item (Coşkun Çetin) which has many news including national ones. I don't even want to mention that Emu is not answering my questions properly and ignoring me on the talk page. So Emu basically saying User:Mahir256 and User:Taketa did the wrong thing by communicating and understanding me but the user itself doing the right thing by only ignoring me and forcing own truth. I don't know. Also check Coşkun Çetin RfD above. --Megatron34 (talk) 22:15, 23 August 2021 (UTC)[reply]
    • No, that’s not what I’m saying. Both User:Mahir256 and User:Taketa actually were very skeptical about your restoration request, voiced concerns about the notability and specifically advised you to improve the item “before it is deleted again.” In the end, they apparently gave your item the benefit of the doubt as is standard practice per AGF (assume food faith). But you have a history of trying to get and keep items of questionable notability into Wikidata, so in the end, one might have to question wether this principle should really be the guiding star when in doubt. --Emu (talk) 00:40, 24 August 2021 (UTC)[reply]
      • No. Actually, I was late to add references too many times to my items, so they were not meeting the notability as I mentioned for both. I created items without adding references so Mahir deleted it. I told Mahir that I'll add soon but one or two day(s) after Taketa deleted it again for the same reason. Then he restored the item so I finally added references before it got deleted again. This was what happened exactly. --Megatron34 (talk) 02:03, 24 August 2021 (UTC)[reply]
        • And, as you can see I added his Linkedin profile to my item on May 29. E4024 requested deletion by the statement "I see one person with this name ( who is a graduate of another university -that may be a mistake- and does not look like notable." on July 18. The statement looks weird to me. Because two Linkedin profiles are obviously not the same. Check it out. --Megatron34 (talk) 02:19, 24 August 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Please tell us, if it's not what I just said, what was the reason that inspired you to make the item of the person who does not appear at the news searches (but at IMDb, Linkedin etc) and preferred him to the more notable Fatih Kaba?

It describes the person (BTW as a Turkish citizen and quite a reader I never heard his name before) twice! as "successful journalist" in the first ever sentence!!! Plus: "Mesleğinde ilkeli çizgisini koruyan ve gazeteciliği yeni nesil ihtiyaçlara entegre ederek icra eden Gazeteci Olgun Kızıltepe hakkında detaylı araştırmalar yapılıyor." (sic) This is not journalism. I confess I have used this site on items of other people here in WD and in WPs. I believe we should not use this site for items of the "personnel" of the same site.

  • Symbol keep vote.svg Keep No, it's not spam or advert. I never heard his name too until I saw him on a news site but he's truly a journalist according to his news site profile. I'd never say "this is not writing" if I don't approve a writer's book or any publication. If it sits there and people reading it, the writer is a writer as a datum. WD:N says items should be described with serious sources which are not self-generated because they're promotional. The news website is a serious source that no one can edit or self-generate such a profile. So I added this site source to prove that he is a journalist, not to promote his profile or his journalism. This profile link alone is enough to prove his identity as a journalist. So we can't say "let's delete this because someone didn't approve him as a journalist." You can share and discuss your opinions about journalism, or entities' fame on other platforms. As I read, Wikidata is not a blog site and is not built for these opinions. I'm open to discussions about the topics outside of Wikidata by the way. Just hit me up on my talk page, we can discuss everything forever including "if Olgun's journalism is journalism or not." I'd also never make a fight against news sources like or Marmara gazetesi which you mentioned above on another RfD that you requested. Because you can easily find that New York Times is also making paid promotions too, including articles and storytelling. Don't we include NYT in WD items and WP articles?

@Frlgin: Which part of WD:N could apply here? --Emu (talk) 21:56, 3 September 2021 (UTC)[reply]
@Emu:@Osps7: WD:N is about inclusion, not exclusion. This is always assumed that if an existing item does not meet WD:N it shall be excluded, but this is nowhere stated explicitly. So if one finds an item that doesn't meet WD:N, but is not obviously SEO or wrong, just let it be.
@Emu: Anyways, the subject has many followers in perspective to the population size and internet availability in Yemen and as anchorman he is a public figure,so WD:N:2. I added 3 different websites as references, although I'm not a speaker of Arabic. And this is the thing: There is no general notability, relevance is always in context. But I as a European cannot judge a context from middle east very well. Can Osps7 do it? Nobody knows, but it seems way too easy to shout 'Not notable!' without further arguments and burden every passerby with the burden of proof.
Sorry @Osps7:, I just checked your profile and saw you are very well competent to judge Arabic contexts. So please elaborate. To me Basheer Al-Harethi seems pretty famous.

@Frlgin: I’m sorry, but that’s not true. You are talking about notability on de.wp (“Relevanzkriterien“) that are indeed about inclusion, not exclusion. That’s not the case with Wikidata: WD:N are the definitive answer to the question what can stay in Wikidata. Follower counts aren’t generally considered to be “serious and publicly available references” (they can be easily manipulated anyway). PS: Pinging doesn’t work without signature --Emu (talk) 19:37, 4 September 2021 (UTC)[reply]
WD:N are not the definitive answer but

intentionally left a bit vague. In case of disagreement over the notability of an item, you can launch a request for deletion. The final decision is always up to the community.

Bulk deletion request: 543 recently created items on legislation[edit]

The following query currently yields 543 unlinked items, that were recently created by User:Olea as part of a botched data import. Each of these items corresponds to an arbitrary text in "legalReferenceName" field of Nationally designated areas inventory (Q1116062). This arbitrary text generally includes comments (clarifying notes, selection of paragraphs, URL or alike) in addition to actual title(s) of legislative act(s). I've corrected some links to use previously existing items using section, verse, paragraph, or clause (P958) qualifier, e.g. here: Special:Diff/1487860134. Some source database fields apparently have been imported multiple times, e.g. identical Q108052947 (unlinked) and Q108065223 (linked). Some apparently are duplicate as many times as they occur in source database, e.g. Q108062713, Q108061580, Q108053019, Q108059945, Q108052798 are all for "Zakon o zaštiti prirode" act of the same country. Possibly a few of these items can be converted to an item on particular legislative act which already doesn't have Wikidata item, but then again going through all of them one by one is probably not worth the effort and it's easier create items for some mentioned legislative acts later if needed. As these 543 items are unlinked then I think it's reasonable and safe to just delete them. Another around 350 items (excluded from the following query) originating from the same source database field are linked and need further attention.

I see both the point of Whym and the point of E4024 not that way. With regard to the statement by Whym I would like to make two points. First: If it is so easy to get a structural use, then I can be happy about a lot of journalists so that you can identify that the journalist Max Mustermann wrote the newspaper articles with which you can prove data in the data object and in the data object can prove. Is that really the point of structural use? Second: If you do it that way, you put Wikimedia Commons photographers above photographers who do not upload their pictures here in Wikimedia Commons. You can't do it like that, everyone has to have the same rights. Now to the statement by E4024: There are many photographers who are just as active at sporting events and take photos. But these do not easily overcome the relevance criteria here in Wikidata if they do not have a Wikimedia article or, for example, a GND ID. --2003:DA:1719:3E3B:3869:F0B2:E257:ADC6 19:57, 16 June 2021 (UTC)[reply]
I believe Wikidata serves two purposes, a general data repository and a shared resource used by the Wikimedia projects. WD:N's sitelink rule reflects the latter. There are many items about Wikimedia categories that have no conceivable use outside of Wikimedia projects, for instance. I think items like this fall into the intersection of the two purposes, and require consideration on both. whym (talk) 11:25, 21 July 2021 (UTC)[reply]

“these reputable and public sources do not exist” How can you be sure about that? It’s hardly surprising that mid-level GDR politicians can’t be found using Google.

No relevance recognizable Gymnicus (talk) 08:18, 21 July 2021 (UTC)[reply]

No need for this request recognizable.
Originally I created the item to shave some bytes from the edit summary of the script User:Bargioni/moreIdentifiers.js:

From 60
"Added with [[User:Bargioni/moreIdentifiers|moreIdentifiers]]"
To 18 
"via [[Q106876944]]"

But unrelated to that intention it is completely fine for a User script to have a Wikidata entry. There is even a dedicated category for it: Wikidata tool. And did you know that the Tool template explicitly includes an item section to link to a Wikidata entry? With 600+ lines of code and customizability, moreidentifiers is a rather complex userscript and without any doubt deserves it's entry, just as autoEdit has for ages. Clearly Symbol keep vote.svg Keep --Frlgin (talk) 14:14, 21 July 2021 (UTC)[reply]

The same rules apply to data objects from the Wikimedia universe as to all other data objects. You must also meet the Wikidata relevance criteria. From my point of view, the data object doesn't do this. It is clear that the first point of the Wikidata relevance criteria is not met. On the second point one could argue with the described at URL (P973) statement. But there the URL is only linked to a Wikidata page, which is why one cannot speak of a reputable source. Thus, the second point of the Wikidata relevance criteria is also not met. Now, based on the contribution of Frlgin one could say that there is a structural benefit. But such a structural benefit is, from my point of view, a complete “bullshit”. "The data object is relevant because the program described in the data object accesses the data object." If such a reason is waved through, then I no longer know how to proceed with Wikidata. --Gymnicus (talk) 14:39, 21 July 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Ivo Kruusamägi (Q3305990): Estonian Wikipedian: (delete | history | links | entity usage | logs)

Questionable relevance from my point of view. I cannot currently assess whether the two identifiers Estonian Research Portal person ID (P2953) and World Cube Association ID (P6407) bring relevance, but otherwise the data object does not have any sources that make the data object relevant. I would also question whether the Wikinews category would make it relevant, because one can question the objectivity here. Gymnicus (talk) 09:08, 22 July 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Symbol note.svg Info @Gymnicus: It seems you want to tackle Multichill’s famous list “Questionable notability Wikimedians”. That’s kind of a touchy subject that’s generally avoided (although there have been discussions, see Special:WhatLinksHere/User:Multichill/Questionable_notability_Wikimedians). I would recommend having a discussion on WD:PC first and halt similar RfD’s at the moment to prevent this page from overflowing. --Emu (talk) 09:45, 22 July 2021 (UTC)[reply]

@Gymnicus: One might wonder if the fact that those items have been around for so long isn’t proof that things aren’t so clear after all. Bringing it up on WD:AN might be construed as criticizing administrators for not doing their jobs. Also topics on WD:PC have sometimes a higher chance to result in a proper discussion than those of WD:AN. But that’s just my opinion, feel free to bring it up on any forum you like. --Emu (talk) 10:14, 22 July 2021 (UTC)[reply]

@Emu: In principle, I only quoted you in my last message, even if I didn't mark it correctly. You may remember our first major disagreement over Ramy Khodier. There you wrote the following:

WD:N is unclear in theory, but pretty clear in current practice: For people or organizations, there are basically two alternatives if you want to be notable:
  1. Find a Wikimedia project that is willing to cover you so you can have a sitelink or
  2. find somebody who isn’t yourself, somebody you pay or somebody close to you who writes about you or publishes data about you in a serious way.

In your opinion, why is the clear practice not applicable here? --Gymnicus (talk) 10:37, 22 July 2021 (UTC)[reply]

PS: In addition, if I have correctly understood the opinion of Lymantria‎ in relation to the object Q107464093, the data object Ivo Kruusamägi (Q3305990) would have to be deleted here anyway because it was converted. If you look at the creation of the data object by the bot MerlIwBot you will see that the data object should actually be a forwarding to the data object Kingdom of Albania (Q2657134). This is no longer possible due to the conversion. --Gymnicus (talk) 10:37, 22 July 2021 (UTC)[reply]

As I have repeatedly told you in the Ramy Khodier case (see Wikidata:Administrators'_noticeboard/Archive/2021/04#Questionable_deletion), it is my opinion that you can’t just bring up other totally unrelated cases and use them as arguments. --Emu (talk) 10:51, 22 July 2021 (UTC)[reply]
@Emu: Stop, stop, stop. You have to stick to the truth. I am referring to a general statement from you here. The statement about the relevance criteria here in Wikidata was not only related to Ramy Khodeir, but it was a general statement, just like my statement that the Wikidata relevance criteria are vague. For this reason I can of course call up this statement here, especially if you contradict this statement here. Here you are suddenly saying that the relevance criteria are imprecise or not really applicable. I would be interested to know how this change of heart came about. --Gymnicus (talk) 11:08, 22 July 2021 (UTC)[reply]
@Gymnicus: Okay, let’s end this digression: I asked you to bring up the topic of notability of Wikimedians on WD:PC or another appropriate forum of your choosing before creating more RfD’s for similar cases. (My reason to ask was that I fear that the RfD won’t be processed any time soon thus bloating this page. I might be wrong.) You can do so or choose not to, it’s a suggestion, not an order. Personally, I don’t want to get involved in this can of worms, at least not at the moment. I don’t feel any obligation to participate in this discussion. Of course you are free to quote me on anything you like and/or suggest that I might have had a change of heart or indeed not. --Emu (talk) 11:23, 22 July 2021 (UTC)[reply]
@Emu: I understand your concern about the bloating of the delete discussion page and I also share your opinion that these discussions are long open. All you have to do is look at the discussion on Sandro Halank, which has been open for almost four months. Nonetheless, I don't understand what a discussion in the forum should bring. It is unlikely that the relevance criteria will be revised. That would first require an opinion sheet, and that would take years. If I look at the three selected opinion sheets, which are displayed on my observation page, then these are already open for between one and two years.

This tool is lacking off wiki documentation, which is criteria two, and it is not currently about a structural need, criteria three.

@Afeef: good catch. Those were erroneously created. Can we assign these IDs to notable Indian politicians that do not exists here already instead of deleting? T Cells (talk) 08:24, 25 October 2021 (UTC)[reply]
@T Cells, Acctually I'm not an Indian, so it's tough to me to find out 49 notable indian politicians who don't have an entry here. I have checked the list of current Rajya Sabha and Lok Sabha members, but found only one (K.R.N Rajeshkumar, Rajya Sabha member from Tamil Nadu) who doesn't have an entry here. And I've a little knowledge about politics of West Bengal, so I tried to found any notable politicians from this region, but it seems every notable politician has article in wikipedia (and also an entry here). And so, finally, I'm sorry. — Afeef (talk) 17:30, 25 October 2021 (UTC)[reply]
I could find notable indian politicians. I am asking if it's technically possible. Since this IDs haven't been assigned to any politicians, I will go ahead to assign them. Regards. T Cells (talk) 17:41, 25 October 2021 (UTC)[reply]

If the business relationships, which can be found via the link [12], can also be substantiated with neutral sources, then the company should definitely be relevant. But I assume that it will be difficult to prove this business relationship with neutral sources. According to their own statements, they "only" developed a social media strategy and look after the Facebook and Instagram accounts for WDR mediagroup (Q1276564), for example. I don't think that such a business relationship is picked up in the media. --Gymnicus (talk) 21:39, 26 October 2021 (UTC)[reply]
