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.

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

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 to be used as a qualifier, @Bugreporter?

abian added a comment to T244054: Make the "allowed units" constraint type recognize classes of units.

(I assume you meant that this would allow any unit with P31 coherent SI unit?)

abian added a comment to T244054: Make the "allowed units" constraint type recognize classes of units.

Great! So, as far as WikibaseQualityConstraints (and not other implementations) is concerned, we could use "coherent SI unit" in the "allowed units" constraint of "conversion to SI unit" (P2370)?

abian added a comment to T244054: Make the "allowed units" constraint type recognize classes of units.

I also observe that the property with the highest number of allowed units, conversion to SI unit, presumably wouldn’t profit from this at all – its 84 units should all be different “classes”, otherwise it’s not very much of a standard conversion. From a glance at the list, that indeed appears to be the case (the classes being “length”, “mass”, “length squared”, “length over time”, etc.).
(It also follows that for this particular constraint, the checker should in fact not apply unit conversions, but we don’t have a way to express that in the constraint statement yet.)

abian added a comment to T244057: Consider giving the "Property scope" constraint type a better name.

<joke>
Another option is that this constraint type becomes a default Wikibase feature consisting of checkboxes displayed on Property pages that enable the use of a Property for the main value, as a qualifier or in a reference.

This is one of only two types whose constraints have the mandatory severity level (1,221, 78%) more often than the normal severity level (349, 22%). Consistently, it has no constraints with the suggestion level and is one of the constraint types with the fewest exceptions. Widely applicable constraint types without exceptions, with a high proportion of mandatory constraints and with a clear and controlled set of parameters should be considered good candidates for becoming default Wikibase features.

abian added a comment to T244049: Show the "Constraints" section even if it is empty.

Maybe. In the case of constraints, the section should never be empty and there is only one Property to define constraints, property constraint (P2302), but in the case of external identifiers it's harder to know which property to use (if any) and an empty section isn't necessarily wrong.

abian added a comment to T244057: Consider giving the "Property scope" constraint type a better name.

I haven't been able to find a sufficiently descriptive name apart from those that list the three possible "scopes", something like "main-value/qualifier/reference constraint type", which is surely not the best name ever.

abian added a comment to T244050: Avoid suggesting constraint types incompatible with the Property type.

The box "Data: Number of constraints by constraint type and Property type" in the report can work as an approximation. Blank cells are cases that most likely don't make sense. It will probably be necessary to code a similar matrix in WikibaseQualityConstraints. If this is done, it will be very useful to show that information in T244044.

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

A specific data/property type for regular expressions or patterns would:

  • ensure that the stored regular expressions or patterns are syntactically correct, in a similar way that quantity-type properties ensure that their statements are not paragraphs, something from which all implementations, tools and reusers would benefit;
  • introduce a specific input (interface) control in Wikibase (not WikibaseQualityConstraints) that could make pattern editing more friendly: monospaced text, warnings, colored brackets, and all the amazing features that the developers want to implement. :-)

I think the reasonable default option is the talk page, thinking of all Wikibase instances. On Wikidata this won't be the most efficient possible solution, but it may serve until the community discusses and agrees on a more definitive solution for Wikidata, IMHO. Right now we have https://www.wikidata.org/wiki/Template:Edit_request. If the URL were defined by a MediaWiki message, the community would be able to change the default link (e.g., https://www.wikidata.org/wiki/Talk:Q42) to a more specific Wikidata link (e.g., https://www.wikidata.org/w/index.php?title=Talk:Q42&action=edit&section=new&preload=Template:Edit%20request/preload).

Yes. But do Wikibase installation owners and technical people know how to escalate those issues? I think they're escalating them but through private channels, which implies that, if the problem is theirs, the next user with the same problem doesn't find anything in a web search or in the documentation and asks again; and, if the bug is in the software, it is sometimes forgotten or bypassed, or even the user decides to change the use case, before the bug translates into a Phabricator task.

The status is automatically given by the software after carrying out some edits. By "care about Wikidata" people usually mean learning what Wikidata is about by carrying out those edits. In that case (the usual), the flag request is unnecessary.
(By the way, we can consider lowering the threshold of the number of edits if we conclude that it's too high, although it was actually increased a few years ago for the opposite reason; I was not involved in the process and, honestly, I don't remember what that threshold is right now.)

abian added a comment to T213300: Only confirmed users should read Wikidata's Special:MostLinkedPages.

I do not think this is a good idea. This amounts to security through obscurity and in general is not a good practice. The same data could be found in a number of other ways (e.g., api.php which would be even more useful to a potential vandal bot) and in the end does nothing to actually prevent any vandalism to begin with (just attempts to deter it by obscuring which pages have the most links). Also unconfirmed users (e.g., anonymous IPs) might have valid reasons to what to know which pages are most linked. We already punish such editors enough for the faults of troublemakers. I do not see this as a great way to protect our content from vandalism and it definitely punishes other users.
These pages should likely already be well known to administrators that will have added protections to them and obscuring which pages they are adds little.

abian added a comment to T235155: Give a Confirmed right to new Wikidata users who are active and trusted on other projects.

Usually editors have two opposite views about this option. One is similar to what @Amire80 exposes: if we propagate the autoconfirmed statuses from Wikipedias to Wikidata, then these autoconfirmed users are free to work on their wikis autonomously, without having to care about Wikidata. The other view is that they should actually care about Wikidata, that the confirmed status is easy to get and that you already get it automatically after carrying out the few test edits necessary to know what Wikidata is about. Some people will say the first option pursues our goals and contributes more to centralization/harmonization, and others will say exactly the same about the second option.
