Description

On my watchlist right now, I have:

(diff | hist) . . D Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Women in Red (Q151973); 16:51 . . KrBot (talk | contribs) (‎Changed reference of claim: Property:P21: Q6581097, разрешение перенаправления / resolving redirect Q20666306 → Q19938912 (подробности / details); ‎Changed reference of claim: Property:P569: 10 November 1925, разрешение перенаправления / resolving redirect Q20666306 → Q19938912 (подробности / details); /* wbsetreference-set:2| *...)

That seems to be linking some edits to https://www.wikidata.org/wiki/Q151973 - Richard Burton - to https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:WikiProject_Women_in_Red where the QId for WP:WiR is https://www.wikidata.org/wiki/Q23875215

It's making no sense at all to me that edits on Q151973 show up on a wikipedia watchlist against the talk page of a wikiproject which has a QId of Q23875215

Am I missing something, or is wikipedia drunk this evening?

I’m afraid you’re missing something, yes :) the edit appears on your watchlist because it could have affected this page. Specifically:

  • According to its page information, Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Women in Red uses the following aspects of the Richard Burton (Q151973) item:
    • English label
    • P21 (sex or gender) statement
    • Other (Statements)
  • The Wikidata edit affected the P21 statement, updating its reference.
  • Therefore, it’s possible that the Wikidata edit results in a change to the Wikipedia page (not its source code, but its rendered version), so users watching the page might want to review the edit.

The reason why the page uses that information is this snippet in one of the messages:

{{wdib |qid=Q151973 |P21 |fwd=ALL}}
