Christmas[edit]

Are we still planning on publishing an edition next week, as Monday is Christmas Day? Andy Mabbett (Pigsonthewing); Talk to Andy; Andy's edits 14:54, 20 December 2017 (UTC)

Sorry I totally missed this. Published one day later. --Lydia Pintscher (WMDE) (talk) 15:50, 12 January 2018 (UTC)

Userscripts[edit]

Do you have a policy about userscripts? A few times there have been userscripts in the newsletter, but not often. -- MichaelSchoenitzer (talk) 13:07, 1 January 2018 (UTC)

No policy, no. If they are useful for other people and worth advertising then it is ok to add them. --Lydia Pintscher (WMDE) (talk) 15:50, 12 January 2018 (UTC)

Newest properties[edit]

@Lea Lacroix (WMDE), Lydia Pintscher (WMDE): use at your discretion :)

 1 # List of all properties newer than the number in line 13,
 2 # split up between external identifiers and all other properties.
 3 # For the weekly summary, adjust the number in line 13 to the highest number mentioned in the last weekly summary,
 4 # run the query and paste the results into the summary.
 5 # (Note: results should hopefully be ordered, but this is not guaranteed.
 6 # In particular, it’s possible that the order flips from ascending to descending
 7 # if something about the way the query is optimized changes.)

Thanks :) --Lydia Pintscher (WMDE) (talk) 15:51, 12 January 2018 (UTC)
Oh, but I didn’t know that the bot that normally does this is open source, so I submitted a PR there as well :) --Lucas Werkmeister (WMDE) (talk) 18:33, 12 January 2018 (UTC)
@Lucas Werkmeister (WMDE): Thanks for the PR. --Pasleim (talk) 19:14, 12 January 2018 (UTC)
@Pasleim: Thanks for the speedy merge! And I see it’s deployed as well now, hooray :) --Lucas Werkmeister (WMDE) (talk) 16:14, 16 January 2018 (UTC)

@Pasleim, Lydia Pintscher (WMDE), Lucas Werkmeister (WMDE): This is a great improvement, but we now display the text as:

  • Other datatypes: ...
  • External identifiers: ...

It reads oddly to have "other" first; may we either reverse the order, or change the former to, say, "General datatypes"? Andy Mabbett (Pigsonthewing); Talk to Andy; Andy's edits 18:49, 16 January 2018 (UTC)

I agree it’s weird, I just couldn’t think of a good name for “other”. “General datatypes” sounds okay… --Lucas Werkmeister (WMDE) (talk) 10:58, 17 January 2018 (UTC)
Ok, I changed it [1]. --Pasleim (talk) 12:40, 17 January 2018 (UTC)

Additions without clear Wikidata scope[edit]

What is the point of adding things like this where readers don't even know what it has to do with Wikidata? Ping Pigsonthewing and Lea Lacroix. Sjoerd de Bruin (talk) 16:10, 15 January 2018 (UTC)

Hey :) I've listened to the first 15 minutes of it now. Andy is talking quite a bit about Wikidata in the podcast, especially about the relation with Wikispecies, which doesn't get too much attention otherwise. So I've left it in. --Lydia Pintscher (WMDE) (talk) 21:49, 15 January 2018 (UTC)
