RonnieV added a comment to T231602: [REQUEST] Data for blocks made on Dutch wikipedia.

I hope it will help the community with rethinking the blocking policy. The large number of indefinite blocks for anons and ranges should be a reason to rethink this, especially with [https://wikimania.wikimedia.org/wiki/2019:Research/Despite_the_ban:_doing_good_work_anonymously_on_Wikipedia this in mind]. The quality of edits by users of tor is about the same as the quality of all anonymous contributions.

Thank you both. Where can I find this translatewiki?

Hi @Lydia_Pintscher , thanks for testing. I retested it. The problem remains the same, when my language preferences are set to Dutch (nl). [https://www.wikidata.org/wiki/Special:SetEntitySchemaLabelDescriptionAliases/E105/de] then gives me 'You are setting label, description and aliases in Duits for Schema E105.' on top of the page, but 'Het label van het schema in het Engels' in grey in the box for the label.
The first sentence should be in Dutch, the second one should mention 'Duits' (instead of 'English').
When I switch to English or German as language, it seems to be working fine.

Any clues where these texts are coming from would be appreciated. I might want to dive into it in order to get this fixed, but I got no clue where to start looking.

@SIryn, @DanielleJWiki, @Ecritures : If you would like to add more languages, the current languagetemplates are on Google drive. Translations are welcome.
Please note that there are differences between the languages. Maybe we should get to a more resembling text, for instance pointing to both the own URL of the institution and the commons-page for the institution (which does not always exist).

@SIryn The documentation points to two categories. Would you like the script to create these as well?

I've just been looking at this task and got some questions/remarks (sorry, in Dutch):

RonnieV added a comment to T207839: Batch add WO II war memorials to Wikidata .

It seems the first batch is imported, but not the rest of 'monumenten.xls'.
Not sure about the status of other files.
The script for making pages on the Dutch Wikipedia on the information in 'Kopie van Erfgoed van Strijd Bevrijding Verzet.xls' was kind of working at the end of WTS2018. Migth have another look at it, so we can make it work before WTS2019 and have all these articles made.

Good to see that you found a solution for the strange addition which changes integers to floats. New imports will be fine, so it's just a one time clean-up for 100 records. Manual handling is a quick solution, writing a script might be nicer and help in other cases

The spreadsheet which Slryn made available has also a description of each monument. If this information is available under the right license, we could use this spreadsheet to create pages for monuments and use the infobox and these descriptions to start with articles on a reasonable level. Some script to use a csv to create these pages and fill them was already made yesterday. I'll upload it to github.

If we get so much detailed information into Wikidata, we should try to use a Wikidata-driven template to show this information on Wikipedia. Will we use a special template for this, or update the template [https://nl.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sjabloon:Infobox_beeld]? Not all monuments are sculptures.
Should we make a subtask or a separate task for this?

RonnieV added a comment to T205489: Find database with cities and villages of Aruba.

Looking at places like Bushiribana and their definition of 'population', this doesn't look like valuable information.
To preserve some quality, I'd recommend to find better info or refrain from importing.
