Scholia gadget link[edit]

I am wondering if it would be possible to get a Scholia link gadget approved? Specifically I am thinking a version Daniel Mietchen modified from the (Magnus Manske's?) Reasonator gadget. Mietchen's version is available here: [1] appropriately renamed to "Gadget-Scholia.js". — Finn Årup Nielsen (fnielsen) (talk) 12:07, 17 May 2019 (UTC)

Change the property of a statement[edit]

Is there a tool to change the property of a statement? For example, Eva Bacharach (Q1379109) claims that Jicchak Hakohen Katz (Q21875216) was her child (P40). This seems unlikely as Jicchak was 30 years older than Eva; he was in fact her father (P22). I know I can type in the new property, copy all the references, qualifiers, etc. from the old one and delete the old one but that would be a very time-consuming and error-prone process for multiple cases and I'm sure you have developed a better way. I've found tools to do similar things such as moving the statement to a different item but nothing that does quite what I need. I expect that behind the scenes such a tool would actually insert and delete; that's exactly what I need as long as the end result is equivalent to changing the property name.

Although an experienced enwiki editor, I'm still finding my way around Wikidata so please feel free to move this discussion to a more appropriate venue. Thanks, Certes (talk) 14:50, 22 October 2019 (UTC)

I found WT:Tools/Archive 1#Property changing which suggests using Daty, but that seems to require libhandy which requires Ubuntu 19.04 and I'm not ready to upgrade that far yet. Certes (talk) 16:41, 22 October 2019 (UTC)

I, too, have been looking for such a tool. It would be useful to do quick error correction without having to retype it in under the new Property. Senator2029 21:28, 26 February 2020 (UTC)

Looking for a tool: Class tree viewer[edit]

I'm looking for a tool that I haven't seen in a while, that doesn't seem to be listed in any of these lists. It generates a tree of classes and subclasses, with different colored arrows for subclass and instance-of relations. Anyone remember what it was called, or where it can be found? --Yair rand (talk) 19:38, 1 January 2020 (UTC)

Ah, it was the "Wikidata Taxonomy Browser", which was mentioned in this post on the mailing list by Markus Kroetzsch, but the link is now broken. Pinging @Markus Krötzsch: Do you know if that tool is still available anywhere? --Yair rand (talk) 22:11, 2 January 2020 (UTC)
