Update wording re associated Wikidata item following move
Closed, ResolvedPublic


At English Wikisource when a page is moved part of the message is

You should also update **the associated Wikidata item** to maintain language links on moved page.

(component in asterisks is a link to WD item)

and this component is added by the system. With how the system has been updated, when moves are undertaken there is the update taking place at Wikidata under the account of the person undertaking the move.

Can the text be updated to better reflect today's reality? I was thinking something like ...

Your move should now be **updated in the Wikidata item** language link, we ask that you confirm this has occurred.

Thanks for your consideration.

There is a small issue with the sentence in the patch as it is now. You don't update a move. Confirm also sounds a bit like it is expecting a yes/no answer. It should also be 2 sentences I believe.
How about this instead: Your move should now be reflected in the Wikidata item language link. We ask that you check this has occurred.
