Split items in Wikidata
Closed, DeclinedPublic


An item should sometimes be split in two, often because it describes an entity that is really two entities that share some time-space continuum.

An example is municipalities that often covers the same area as a town. Note that this example is not easy to solve as several Wikipedias treat them as the same, while others treat them as different entities.

Closing this for lack of interest and viable implementation options at this point.

Perhaps easy undoing of a merge would be similar to this?
Currently undoing a merge is 4 separate actions.
