abian added a comment to T272697: (MS 6) Query for date values.

Hey, @abian. Those are very valid and concerns, and we really appreciate you sharing them! We are aware that unfortunately some current issues will also be reproduced by the new application (e.g. querying for a specific date like 01-01-2021 will result in false positives, since 2021 with precision year will also be retrieved). In the context of the Query Builder, users will only be able to enter specific dates, and precision will be interpreted based on their input (we are yet to define how some values – e.g. years only – would be translated into SPARQL. This might be the key to alleviate some of the inherent issues with dates?). This data type is definitely a tricky one, and we wouldn't like to proceed being unaware of big problems. Since you seem to really have a deep understanding of the issue and its consequences, it'd be great if you'd be up for a chat?

abian added a comment to T272697: (MS 6) Query for date values.

Hey over here. I'm writing to warn you that, unfortunately, this can be extremely problematic. Since Wikibase stores all dates with day precision, regardless of their actual precision (which is stored separately), and the irrelevant part of the value can be arbitrary, it's very easy to generate misinformation with these features, as has been quietly happening for years and continues to happen to many agents and to at least three Property constraint types (see T168379, one of the most important causes of false positives in the very system that is intended to ensure data quality; and see https://reasonator.toolforge.org/?q=Q100410179 mentioning the year 1476, totally arbitrary value that Wikibase stores internally and shamelessly communicates to all software agents but does not display in its web interface). Including these features in the Query Builder aimed at the general public without first resolving this problem could have very undesirable consequences. I should have opened a Phabricator task describing this general problem and all its consequences, but I have never found the time or known where to start because of its magnitude and the questions it opens up.

abian added a comment to T269724: Allow restricting constraints to certain entity types.

I understand the motivation (thanks to the fact that Nikki's tasks are much more interesting and better described than mine), :-) but I believe we should strive to contain the complexity of the constraint system and, if possible, reduce the current complexity, which is quite high. The need that the example represents might not be recurrent and, for that case, I think we could have two Properties, one for Items and one for Forms, to better adjust the constraints (not only the one we're commenting on) and statements of each of them to their cases of use. I wouldn't find it a big problem if there were some similar statements on two different Properties, as they aren't expected to change frequently and they'll be used in different namespaces (so both shouldn't appear together or be read by the same software agents that might know about one Property but not about the other). Please don't hate me for this (hate me for something else…).

abian added a comment to T260737: Improve the editing reason labels and descriptions to be more precise.

Okay. Then the description might be incomplete; for example, if I change a territorial administrative unit to a lower one, I wouldn't consider that the previous value "was not correct and has never been". I personally would think that I would have improved the original value, but not that the original value was wrong, and I wouldn't know what to choose. In this situation people might choose arbitrarily (if they didn't have much time) or they might feel forced to ask about the consequences of these decisions and about Wikidata's policies on when to add values and when to replace them.

I’m not sure i understand the scenario correctly, but i would think, if it was a mistake, then choosing the first option “correcting” would be correct, if the unit has changed then the “outdated” option would be the correct one to pick. Can you clarify?

I think that "lowest" priority is maybe a bit too low. While a solution isn't found, maybe a bot can be programmed in order to remove duplicate aliases and (if possible) to send a standard warning message to the users who added them.

abian added a comment to T166470: Include links in Wikidata HTTP responses to different entity representations as Link headers.

I'm sorry I put this aside (my fault). I didn't include tests, but I feel I don't know the architecture well enough to write them; I sense that these will be complex or that I'll need to touch code elsewhere. I think it's better for me to officially give up on these tests so that a developer on the team (or other volunteer) can code them. I'll list a few checks I have in mind, but please don't consider this list essential or exhaustive:

  • A request for a page that is not a Wikibase entity does not generate a response with links to alternative structured representations.
  • A request for a Wikibase Item generates a response with links to alternative structured representations.
  • A request for a Wikibase Property generates a response with links to alternative structured representations.
  • The link headers are well formatted.
  • All the alternative structured representations listed are available.
  • All the alternative structured representations available are listed.
  • All the alternative structured representations listed are about the requested Wikibase entity.

abian added a comment to T244046: Consider creating a Wikibase datatype for patterns (regex).

@DannyS712: I think I don't understand your question. What do you mean by reusing a regex? What would you expect could be done on the UI that is not possible now? On https://www.wikidata.org/wiki/Wikidata:2020_report_on_Property_constraints#format there are also some general stats about our regular expressions.

abian added a comment to T235292: Add P4224 to wgWBQualityConstraintsPropertiesWithViolatingQualifiers.

I think that other constraints still apply even if "manner of death" (P1196) is used as a qualifier for "category contains" (P4224). Also, "category contains" (P4224) will not be the only property with which "manner of death" (P1196) and other properties can be used as qualifiers.

I'm afraid this will continue the path of overcomplicating property constraints with exception layers patching weak or ill-defined constraints. Do you think it would be okay to complete/relax the constraint by allowing P1196, and other properties, to be used as a qualifier, @Bugreporter?
