What Tambe said. :-) Whatever you write doesn't have to be Wikidata specific, but it helps if there's some sort of a connection to the project.

@MSGJ , @Mike_Peel can i hardcode the terms , which i need to search or i have to find them using code. For example, if i want to get Qid for 'human', can i just put it in search_entities or i need to go to wikidata page and parse that to get the title human?

Mike_Peel added a comment to T279290: Synchronising Wikidata and Wikipedias using pywikibot - Task 6.

I thought we had to go to each article and search for all wikidata properties that could be added to the wikidata article. Then we would look for the values of those properties from the wikipedia article.

Hello @Anubhuti! As far as I understand, we need to go through all the articles in the chosen category and find the property associated with that particular category only instead of looking for all the possible Wikidata properties.
For example: Let's say you chose the 90minut template with ID not in Wikidata category. On the top, you will notice the following statement:

This category is for Wikipedia articles using the {{90minut}} template with an ID not in Wikidata property 90minut player ID (P3605).

So you need to find the information associated with the "{{90minut}}" (or something similar, depending on the category) in each article and assign it a property ID of P3605 while adding it to Wikidata.

Hope this helps :)

Hi. I’m sending this to all applicants of the 'Synchronising Wikidata and Wikipedias using pywikibot’ Outreachy project (T276329). Thanks for all your contributions so far! You can continue sending contributions until the Outreachy deadline. If you haven’t already, please submit your contributions to Outreachy, and you might want to start writing your application if you haven’t already (the deadline is next week!) You can do so here: https://www.outreachy.org/outreachy-may-2021-internship-round/communities/wikimedia/synchronising-wikidata-and-wikipedias-using-pywiki/contributions/ . Also, the project has had a lot of interest, and there is only one place available, so I strongly encourage you to also submit contributions and applications to other Outreachy projects as well to increase your chances of doing an Outreachy internship! (Again, I’m saying this to all applicants.) Thanks.

Since we are parsing through the article text on wikipedia, are we also meant to get the property id as shown in the example?

"P31 = radio telescope"

If so, how is this possible without accessing wikidata?

Hello @Aminehassou ! What I think that we have to do is that, we search for 'specific information' (especially those that we searched for in Task 1) in the Wikipedia article. And since we know what kind of information we searched for, we can assign the corresponding property ID which is appropriate for it.

Hey, thanks for the response, so in other words, we hardcode the value in since we have already found it during task 1?

No problem. And yes, that's pretty much what we have to do.

@Mike_Peel, For Bonus: Explore how to identify the correct item when multiple terms are returned, can we approach the problem with the idea that for every QID returned through the searching title, we refine the correct one by parsing each item for a specific property? For instance, if my title is "Harry Potter". Now that returns Harry Potter movie, book, and character. But only the book will have the property "Language of the work", or "author", or "publication date"?

It's generally better to write code that is stand-alone and others can run, so in this case it's worth including '('en', 'wikidata')' in the main script, even if it's not strictly needed for you to run it. You shouldn't normally share your user config file.

@Mike_Peel Concerning the instruction, " load the contents of one of the pages ", is this referring to a single/one article page? Please provide more explanation

The temporary fix seems to work with "?action=purge".

this doesn't have anything to do with desktop improvements.

Confirmed that others are also seeing this: https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/User_talk:Mike_Peel#%7B%7Btl%7CWikidata_Infobox%7D%7D. Being bold and tagging with 'unbreak now' since this affects 3 million Commons categories.

@Mike_Peel for task-1, say I take up books, then do we have to explore 15-20 properties of ALL the books that we choose, or in all (say 6 books) it should add up to that?

@srishakatux Just to check, if there are multiple good candidates at the end of the contribution period, is it possible to accept multiple students, or is it only possible to accept one student? I'm not sure what the rules here are, and it's good to set out expectations at the start of the project.

There was quite a lot of interest in the project today (I think 15 people?!), so I've set up the guidance for the first two tasks, and hopefully have replied to everyone! Will add more tasks shortly.

cc: @matej_suchanek @Mike_Peel
Not sure if you saw the announcement for the new WDQS Streaming Updater a couple of weeks ago, but it might be relevant to you that it no longer supports fetching constraint violations (I was informed you are among people who use this importing a lot). You may want to update your modules/bots in the near term.
