Mike_Peel added a comment to T244529: mw.wikibase.getLabelByLang not return item label for some items, because MIGRATION_WRITE_NEW is being deployed with train for wmf.18.

We're rolling back to wmf.16 on all wikis. We hope this will resolve the issues but of course some bad data may now be cached. We'll look at this again on Monday.

@Dudley_Miles Could you give some examples of articles/categories where you received notifications from me, please? One thought is that I am using a Python script to add these links rather than the editing interface, and in some cases I add both the enwp and commons link simultaneously to a new item linking the two. Perhaps that somehow means that the option blocks one notification but somehow lets the other through.

Mike_Peel added a comment to T235811: Wikimedia Commons "Collapse captions" gadget not working.

The widgets in the WikibaseMediaInfo extension use templates and render() methods to ensure that the visible UI remains in sync with the structured data as it changes. Existing DOM elements are often thrown out and re-rendered from scratch to ensure consistency. Our introduction of this workflow into the Captions widget is probably what initially broke this gadget.

I'll have a look around for some current examples, but I haven't seen any for the last week, so this may well have been solved with the deadlocks issue. Although T233520 (page_props missing links) is definitely still happening, and may be related to clearing out any old cases here as well.

Sure, what country tracking category would you like it to add? I've done a demo at https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:At_Paraty,_Brazil_2017_107.jpg that currently puts it into "Category:Monuments by ID in Brazil", but any other format of "Category:prefix <country> postfix" is straightforward to implement. (But different prefixes/postfixes for different countries would be messy.)

Thanks! The convention follows https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Category:Cultural_heritage_monuments_with_known_IDs, in this case https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Category:Cultural_heritage_monuments_in_Brazil_with_known_IDs

  1. by the nature of point 1 there will be no tracking category for images with ids for the dataset.

The MonumentID could figure it out based on the Wikidata invoke and add the relevant country-based category.

I'll ping @Mike_Peel here, as he is the creator of the MonumentID template on Commons. What do you think, Mike?

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?

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.

(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).

That's fine, but it's still a bug that needs to be fixed at some point. So I've re-opened it with a low priority for now.

I've submitted a bot request:
https://www.wikidata.org/wiki/Wikidata:Requests_for_permissions/Bot/Pi_bot_9
It will take a few days to be approved, so I'll probably run this over the weekend. The bot will be quite general, so should this happen again in the future (with tgwiki or elsewhere) then I'll also be able to fix those too.

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.

I would suggest to do a test, ask someone from the administrators to create a page, link it to wikidata, and then delete it. To see if this was a specific issue at that time. And then you can remove the entries and we close the ticket here.

Mike_Peel added a comment to T169935: API issues when fetching Wikidata information through infoboxes on enwp.

It ultimately turned out that "nosave=1" when passed to the coord template disabled the coordinates in the API. Removing that parameter should now have resolved this.

Should I leave the examples live, or can I remove them from the wikidata entries?

There are quite a few examples now on my user subpage, but from what I can see they are all deletions by VASHGIRD on 17-18 October 2017. Perhaps there was a specific issue at that time?

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

This is also relevant for Wikimedia Commons, where we now have infoboxes in categories that can take up quite a few screen-pages on mobile, e.g. try https://commons.m.wikimedia.org/wiki/Category:Barack_Obama . See T199931 for details.

When I've seen this happening, I've just assumed it's due to large job queues, and that the update will happen eventually. Does changing the page on Wikidata not add the refresh tasks to the job queue?

Will it be possible to access/display the descriptions in the text of other articles (e.g., list articles, or ideally even on Commons/other projects), or will this be write-only from the perspective of editing?

Mike_Peel added a comment to T184000: Magic word on English WP to override display of Wikidata short description.

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.
