agray added a comment to T230588: Wikidata Query Service is swapping items and properties.

I'm still getting this with "normal" properties (ie not just wikibase:quantityUnit) on https://www.wikidata.org/wiki/Q334443 - it's showing up as a duplicate in P39-based searches which return the item, and I can replicate this just with a targeted search by identifier (https://w.wiki/825).

Another option would be to have differential rate limits - 2k in general, longer links only allowed for query.wikidata.org URLs? (suggestion from Stefano)

If the link lenght would be grow up to 4000, link like w.wiki/uR (an File in Base64 code between []) would become more effective. So it could be missused for sharing also other content, that has nothing to do with wikimedia. This very problematic, because the size of the short links grow, when the size of the numbers of the short links grow. And I don't see how Steward could fix this alone.

@GoranSMilovanovic oh hurrah - glad you've traced the problem! Those numbers for P1614 sound pretty much what I'd expect given it's data from February, so it looks like it's solved. Thanks for this, the dashboard looks like a really useful tool :-)

@GoranSMilovanovic thanks! Looking back at my tests for P.1614, these are the new numbers in the overlap data column (tables view, left hand column). They're a lot higher, but I think they're still incomplete.

@agray

For VIAF (P214) the dashboard reports 440 items, against a SPARQL total of 2807.

  • For VIAF P214, the dashboard reports 1380767 items (tab: Tables, the table to the right, search for this identifier); are comparing the same data? What dashboard functionality have you used to find 440 items for P214 VIAF, please?

For Hansard ID (P2015), the dashboard has 110 and a SPARQL query has 2369.

  • For Hansard ID (P2015), the dashboard reports 14467 items, and overlap of 355 items with P214 VIAF ID. Are we looking at the same dashboard? :)

Most dramatically, for the Oxford DNB (P1415), the dashboard has two items and SPARQL has 3171.

  • For the Oxford DNB (P1415) the dashboard reports that 61143 items make use of it. Can you share your SPARQL queries, because I think we are discussing different datasets here.

@GoranSMilovanovic - I can confirm that the numbers on the tables seem a bit off for some other properties. I've been looking at P1614 (History of Parliament), which is complete and fairly stable. It currently has 21428 IDs on 17942 items (there's a lot of items with two/three IDs) and hasn't had any big changes since I finished matching in mid-2018.

This would help solve another problem - at the moment the existing third-party shortener embedded in the query service returns a 431 error for queries which are longer than ~3000 characters.

agray added a comment to T199228: Define an SLO for Wikidata Query Service public endpoint and communicate it.

To follow up on @Jheald and @Lydia_Pintscher's comments here - for a lot of use-cases, I agree that a lag measured in a few hours isn't much of a problem, because the underlying data is fairly static. Most property values don't change minute-to-minute or even month-to-month, most ontologies and hierarchies are reasonably stable, and so on. Queries which are "tell me something interesting about the underlying data" will tend to return reasonably good results whatever the update lag, assuming that it's not something that changes frequently or has been recently worked on.

Can confirm that my experience (probably on ~20 Sept if that helps narrow it down; Firefox 62 under Ubuntu) was as Magnus describes it. It happened on one or two pages; I haven't had it happen since and assumed it was some weird local browser issue so didn't file a bug for it.

One other sorting method that might be useful - P1545 qualifiers on P2093 claims (used for huge numbers of scholarly articles) or P735 claims (starting to become common for people with first and middle names). It looks like we will need a general solution for sorting properties by qualifier...

agray added a comment to T173432: Sort claims of a property in meaningful way.

We might need to sort on more qualifiers than just P585. This is becoming an issue for P39 claims, where it's not unknown for someone to have 10-20 claims or even more if they had a long career (especially in politics where they might hold a lot of different official posts and elected offices).

This would be very useful for reports which use Quarry data (allowing us to timestamp the source for the end-user). The page currently reports the ID of the last run (in the source as "qrun_id": 12345) which is part-way there, but a date would be really handy.

Focusing specifically on WP0 uploaders doesn't seem to be the most effective approach here - there'd be nothing stopping a small number of non-WP0 users seeding this content onto Commons for anyone else to retrieve. (Likewise, there's no particular reason the downloaders have to be on WP0).

I'd agree with Technical13 - in general terms, it's reasonable for the notice to come up if an actual *edit* has been reverted, as it'd be very hard for the system to distinguish between ones someone needs to know about and ones they don't.
