Alias in Indian language[edit]

A name like "Kalpana" is quite common in many Indian languages, such as Assamese, Bengali, Hindi, Marathi, Telugu etc. Adding alias in Devanagari such as this, in my opinion, does not add any value. I feel these alias should be avoided unless absolutely needed. Note: we have similar issue in many more (mostly female given name) articles. Regards. --Titodutta (talk) 21:19, 24 April 2018 (UTC)

@Harmonia Amanda:, as the subject of @Titodutta:’s linked edit. This does play into a concern I have about labels for name items in languages which do not use the script marked for that named item (e.g. Bengali labels for names in the Latin script or Hindi labels for names in the Cyrillic script or something like that). Mahir256 (talk) 23:03, 24 April 2018 (UTC)
Hi! It's because the item is about the given name "कल्‍पना" (the string, not the language). So the string is used as label for all languages using devanagari, and is present as an alias and in the description of all other languages. We separate names based on how they are written, for all languages/writing systems; Victor (Q539581) is in Latin script, so the Latin script string is in the description of all non-Latin script languages and as an alias. Viktor (Q30106749) is in Cyrillic, so the string is in the description and as an alias for other languages… otherwise we wouldn't be able to differentiate between people named "Victor" and people named "Виктор". It's the same for कल्‍पना, which is not the same name as "Kalpana". The label needs to be in the language of the label, so every time the item is about a name in another writing script the label is a transliteration and not the name itself. So the real subject is both as an alias and in the description. It's the system we use so it works no matter what writing system the original name is using. Kind regards, --Harmonia Amanda (talk) 14:08, 5 May 2018 (UTC)
@Titodutta:, in case you didn't see her response. @Harmonia Amanda: So if we are to add name items to people whose native language is any other Indian language not written in the Devanagari script, we would need to make items for those name items in every other Indian script? I contend that it is already very scattered having seven different Latin script family name items (each of those last seven words is a different link) for the same Indian name that in all cases would be rendered identically in a given script (चक्रवर्ती, চক্রবর্তী, ચક્રવર્તી, ਚੱਕਰਵਰਤੀ, ଚକ୍ରବର୍ତ୍ତୀ, சக்கரவர்த்தி, ചക്രവർത്തി). Mahir256 (talk) 20:34, 9 May 2018 (UTC)
@Mahir256, Titodutta: basically, yes. It's the only way we found to be able to deal with all the difficulties with names. We chose the "one string : one item" approach because it's the only one which allow us to work with sources from all other the world, with different scripts, with people who changed names, emigrated to other countries, etc. this way, we have one item by string, which is in native label (P1705); then we have the labels/descriptions/aliases saying what the items is about and all transliterations are added as aliases. It's tiring to create the names in the first place but after that we have data we can use. Otherwise, we wouldn't be able to know if people are really named चक्रवर्ती or Chakravorty (one name would be transliterated differently in some Latin-script languages, the other would stay written that way). The difficulty with this approach is only in creating the names entries (which can be automated). All other approaches we thought of made problems when using the data, which is way more complicated to solve. For some languages, we even have another layer: several Japanese names will share the same kanjis, but be written differently in kanas. So for Japanese we have different entries for all couples kanji-kanas… Basically, after months and months of thinking it's actually the easiest way we found to deal with that. --Harmonia Amanda (talk) 08:56, 11 May 2018 (UTC)

Painting by Indian[edit]

I think these ("painting by Indian") descriptions are not descriptive enough. However, I do not know much about the subject. Suggestions? --Titodutta (talk) 20:52, 29 April 2018 (UTC)

@Titodutta: In the absence of information about the creators of those paintings on the information pages themselves, it may be better to alter the description merely to note when the specific painting was made (as in "painting c. 1745-1750 housed in the National Gallery of Victoria").

  • Thanks, it would be great if you give an approximate number of descriptions added in the above mentioned languages and/or update on our Facebook chat group.

Talk page archive bot[edit]

Can someone appoint a talk page archiving bot in this page? I am not sure which bot works the best here on Wikidata. Please feel free to set your own rule such as older than 15 days or so. Regards and thanks in advance. --Titodutta (talk) 09:55, 25 May 2018 (UTC)

@Titodutta: I'll start working on this. It'll be ready within a few mins. Krishna Chaitanya Velaga (talk) 15:03, 22 June 2018 (UTC)
@Titodutta: Hi Tito, set-up done with the following settings – Threads older than 15 days will be archived; minimum number of threads to be left on this page is five; archive subpages are titled as Wikidata talk:WikiProject India/Archive N (N= 1, 2, 3 ...); after every fifty threads on each sub-age, a new page will be automatically created and updated accordingly. Hopefully it should start working soon. Krishna Chaitanya Velaga (talk) 15:28, 22 June 2018 (UTC)
Thank you. --Titodutta (talk) 04:15, 23 June 2018 (UTC)

Pictogram voting comment.svg Notified participants of WikiProject India I'm working to add information on elected politicians across India - at the level of state and city legislatures as well as nationally. I'm doing this work in my job as a Data Analyst at mySociety mySociety (Q10851773) and it is part of a larger project to collect similar information across all countries

mySociety (Q10851773) is working with Gender and Politics to collect some of this data, but would love to work with others on this as well.

In terms of entering the data I'm currently following the model from Wikidata:WikiProject_every_politician, but would appreciate any feedback on that model and whether it is appropriate for India.

At the moment I'm focussing on making sure all the basic information all exists for all States plus Puducherry and Dehli which includes: State legislature A role for members of the legislature A head of government for the state/UT An executive for the state

This is all using the approach at Wikidata:WikiProject_every_politician. Once this is complete (and most of this is already there) I will be working on adding information about political parties (I'm expecting most of that information to be already in Wikidata) and constituencies/electoral districts (where I expect there will be more work.

Only once all that is done will I look at adding details of individual politicians.

Any advice, comments, questions or help with this work are very welcome Owenpatel (talk) 14:52, 22 June 2018 (UTC)
