Mike_Peel added a comment to T212843: [EPIC] Access to Wikidata's lexicographical data from Wiktionaries and other WMF sites.

My suggestion would be to simply mirror the functions that are currently available for Q-items - either by duplicating the code that does that and changing "Q" to "L", or better, generalizing it so that it works for all of Wikibase's namespaces (P/Q/L/M/...). Then it can be built upon on-wiki as needed (e.g., through Module:WikidataIB). That would also help structured data on commons, and future projects using wikibase.

I think this is basically solved now, barring cleanup? Following from the general switch to using the sitelinks for Commons over the last year, the interwiki links now appear on Commons through the sitelinks in most cases. Where the category is linked to a category item, {{Interwiki from Wikidata}} and {{Wikidata Infobox}} sort out the relevant links. So I think this task can now be closed?

Mike_Peel added a comment to T213481: Add CSS ID tags to structured data anchors on file pages.

I think you just answered your own question. The display:none approach is already in use, but mw-collapsed would be better so it's not completely disabled, and as things stand that requires a html id. I'm happy to see the problem solved a different way, this is just how I know the problem can be solved.

Jan 11 2019, 9:45 PM · Multimedia
Mike_Peel added a comment to T213481: Add CSS ID tags to structured data anchors on file pages.

Yes, I was meaning an actual HTML id. That way, users can add additional css classes to the ID using their user javascript page, e.g., $( "#captions" ).addClass( "mw-collapsed" ); - or better yet, provide some other way to let users auto-collapse the caption box, like a gadget or by having it as a beta feature. From my experience with the wikidata infobox on commons, this is a good way of keeping those that don't want to see the extra box happy.

@hoo Another question was also raised: is it possible to adapt the scale of the map (=zoom level) depending on what it is about?
(see discussion here)

I looked at this briefly and it would be hard to integrate with how the maps are currently generated. Also on commons units are not currently respected when evaluating this… that's something we would need to get right.
We could adapt the zoom based on precision, though (see T211676).

I posted this in the 2019 wishlist, but withdrew it as I realised that it's not actually possible to edit the maps at the poles on OSM as they use the same projection - so this probably needs OSM to fix things first. Not sure if it's possible to mark another organisation as the blocker for this issue!

The query approach didn't find any, but looking through VASHGIRD's contributions on wikidata found several that were deleted from tgwiki and the sitelink automatically removed from wikidata, e.g. at Q9729338 and Q13201301 . So this must have been a temporary glitch. I'll work on removing the broken links, then this can be closed.

  • Example 2: (@Mike_Peel may know better how it works in enwiki - so please correct me if I'm wrong) In some communities such as enwiki there is/was no clear consensus to autofill parameters from Wikidata by default, and sometimes the prefered approach is two equivalent templates ([[Template:Infobox person]] and [[Template:Infobox person/Wikidata]]) and the user can decide to explicitly use /wikidata. In that case it may make sense to have wikidata mapping even in the non wikidata version, so user can verify the data is compatible before switching to /wikidata version.

Mike_Peel added a comment to T199892: Show Wikidata values for a template in templatewizard.

Please be careful with cases like https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Template:Infobox_telescope - where the infobox fetches the information from Wikidata in a formatted way, rather than asking users to start putting things like {{#property:P569}} everywhere. It's very valuable to do the matching of wikidata properties against the fields using templatedata, so that we don't have to have manual tables that describe the info; and for users to be able to edit the Wikidata information directly or provide a local text override, but copying info from Wikidata or adding in extra tags to fetch Wikidata info should be avoided.

However the seesaw/swing example still proves the fundamental point. Wikidata descriptions are descriptions of Wikidata items, for Wikidata purposes. Trying to put a Czech article-description in the Wikidata-description would be flat-out wrong. And using a Wikidata description as the Czech article description is going to be wrong.
Wikidata descriptions commonly have a passable resemblance to article descriptions, and some clients may sloppily or carelessly use them for that purpose, but Wikidata descriptions are not article descriptions. They never were.

Ah, sorry, that wasn't clear! Although I suspect this might be better to solve in the general case, than to create a special case for one situation. Maybe that's better linked with things like foot/inches than datestamps, though.

Mike_Peel added a comment to T130504: Some users are recognized as bots in recent changes and watchlists.

Here's what I said in the task that's been merged into this one:

I often use Commonist to bulk upload photos to Commons using my normal editing account. The new files are automatically added to my watchlist, and they are also added to a category I have on my watchlist.
Mostly this displays fine in my watchlist, but every so often there is a glitch in the order that the edits appear, and at the same time one of the category additions gets marked as a bot edit, even though it isn't. See the attached screenshot as an example.
This has been happening for a while (I've been spotting it happening for the last few months), it's not a new issue, and it doesn't break anything. But it is an oddity.

Mike_Peel added a comment to T177707: don't dispatch changes to all affected pages for highly used items.

RelatedChanges, RecentChanges, and watchlist are all the same behind the scenes. They all have the same feasibility concerns.

Sure, I thought that this might help reduce the amount of duplicate info stored, since presumably you'd just store the change with the linked item and then be able to pick up that linked item change through RelatedChanges. Apologies if I'm missing the problem.

Mike_Peel added a comment to T177707: don't dispatch changes to all affected pages for highly used items.

"Open question: Where should the cut-off initially be?" - the problem I have here is that it's particularly useful to see changes to highly-used pages, as it's those same pages that need to be watched closer to make sure that vandalism is quickly reverted. E.g. if a country name is vandalised, that needs to be caught quickly. If that's not feasible, then I'm not sure I see the benefit of having a middle-region, perhaps it should only appear for the directly linked page... Or maybe it should show in RelatedChanges rather than RecentChanges.

Mike_Peel added a comment to T158058: Errors when saving monolingual text property on Wikidata if other text with the same language exist.

This happens occasionally to me as well, but with "pt-BR". Sometimes it seems like it's due to the page not finishing loading before I try to save the edit, but I'm not sure about that.

It's up to you if you want to take over maintenance and running of the code yourself (it's simple code with minimal requirements), or I can update the code when the new permissions sheet is available.

Mike_Peel added a comment to T170788: Provide a more direct way to access an item's ID.

It seems odd that, in order to get the data (the Q-numbers), you have to strip formatting from the values (as opposed to adding preferred formatting to data). Being able to simply get a list of Q-ids should be one of the simplest Wikidata queries possible...

The 'diff' and 'hist' links aren't working correctly either - they point towards the page on enwp, which doesn't show any changes, rather than to a page on Wikidata.

Mike_Peel added a comment to T54564: Allow sitelinks to redirect pages to fix the 'Bonnie and Clyde problem'.

I wonder if this might be better done through a property that allows qualifiers, so that each redirect can be marked up with the rationale for why it is a redirect (including common typos, foreign language versions, etc.). Although quite how that could interact with MediaWiki/Wikibase, I'm not sure!

Mike_Peel reopened T102417: Give Commons its own Wiki box rather than forcing it under Other sites as "Open".

Having a separate box for Commons would make it a lot clearer that commons links can be added in the same way that other sister sites can be.

Showing a difference helps conveying that there is no difference? Quite an oxymoron.
