Incorrect spelling of numbers for the April 27th & April 15th entries

The word twelveth is an archaic form of twelfth. The phrase eleventh-millionth plus one should be phrased as eleven-millionth-plus one. – The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk • contribs) at 04:23, 30 April 2013 (UTC).

Million new items milestones spam

Seems that the news is somehow spammed by new items milestones. Maybe it would be an idea to do that only after 5 million new items. --Arnd (talk) 11:43, 22 August 2017 (UTC)

Hello, thanks for your suggestion. About Wikidata:News, feel free to clean it and remove some points of the list. If it is about the newsletter as well, feel free to improve it here or to reach me if you have any concern. Lea Lacroix (WMDE) (talk) 12:14, 22 August 2017 (UTC)

Replace Special:Statistics with Wikidata:Statistics

Opinions? Ogoorcs (talk) 13:12, 24 October 2017 (UTC)

The special page itself (i.e. the content that is displayed on Special:Statistics) cannot be changed without a software change. Do you mean to replace a link? If so, from where? I don't see a link to Special:Statistics on the main page. --YMS (talk) 14:20, 24 October 2017 (UTC)
There is a link to Special:Statistics in the header: "the free knowledge base with 40,672,261 data items that anyone can edit". In Wikidata:Statistics, the statistics on the right side ("What is in Wikidata?") are not up to date, but maybe this could be remedied? Korg (talk) 18:11, 4 November 2017 (UTC)

WEF: Person errors

Hello. I've been importing English Wikipedia articles that i've made with WEF:Person. However, at times when I try to import the articles into wikidata, I get an error that says Unable to update entity: [object Object]. Is there a reason why I keep coming across this error? Thanks --MrLinkinPark333 (talk) 23:15, 4 November 2017 (UTC)

You should report this to the maintainer(s) of tool, with precise steps how to reproduce the problem. Matěj Suchánek (talk) 09:25, 5 November 2017 (UTC)


Help I can't fix en:Category:Ethiopian military personnel with de:Kategorie:Militärperson (Äthiopien) 13:08, 7 November 2017 (UTC)

It seems like Hydro already moved the sitelinks, but I've completed the merge the usual way. Use Wikidata:Project chat next time for questions, and consider making an account and reading Help:Merge for how to do it yourself. Sjoerd de Bruin (talk) 13:19, 7 November 2017 (UTC)

The same problem ist with de:Kategorie:Militärperson (Madagaskar) and en:Category:Malagasy military personnel 13:21, 7 November 2017 (UTC) The same problem with German de:Kategorie:Militärperson (Mongolei) and en:Category:Mongolian military personnel88.71.62.102 14:45, 7 November 2017 (UTC)
