Nevborg added a comment to T257589: Remove Italian as fallback language for Maltese.

There has been a community discussion about this open for over a week (here:*_Interfa%C4%8B%C4%8Bja_mhux_bit-Taljan_*/) and it seems quite clear that the community is in favour of the removal of Italian from the interface. There have been four votes in favour of its removal, one neutral vote, and no votes against.

@Romaine Thank you so much for the fantastic work, it is much appreciated! I have linked to the list on the Malta project landing page. Please go ahead and add the monuments to Wikidata using the modified data, but you might want to wait until we have the geo-coordinates in place first.

@Effeietsanders If it is possible for the pdf files to be linked semi-automatically that would be fantastic - does anybody know how I could go about getting this done?

@LilyOfTheWest I don't have the addresses for these monuments, nor do I have any information that could really help distinguish them from one another. The best I could do is number them (e.g. "Niche of St Paul 1", "Niche of St Paul 2" etc.), but that doesn't really help the participants identify which monument each number is referring to, so I don't think that would be of any great help.

@LilyOfTheWest This is because they are different monuments, despite having the same names. I have double checked the cases you mentioned (1849 and 1850) with the official Government list and they are indeed listed as two different statues. I know that this happens on many other occasions, as there are many monuments which share the same name (e.g. "Niche of St Paul") but have different IDs - in all these cases they are different monuments, so we have to work around that somehow.

Questions for Neville:

  • Which one of the monuments in the list have an item in Wikidata? If you can add a column to , call it for example monument_wd_item, and copy the Q... ID from Wikidata to there, that would help us create the missing monuments in Wikidata.
  • Let's plan to create the list of monuments in English Wikipedia as well, given that you already have the information about the monuments in English. This will make sure that more people can participate in your contest. :)
