Sister page[edit]

Perhaps we should create a sister page like this, over at Wikidata, titled Wikidata:Wikidata:Wikimedia Commons. -- Cirt (talk) 13:51, 12 March 2013 (UTC)

This page is very unhelpful[edit]

The only thing what happens on Commons is the section Wikidata on Commons with great content of: {{On Wikidata}} allows to link from Commons page to Wikidata item. What is now the actual procedure on Commons??? -- Perhelion 10:59, 31 May 2014 (UTC)

For example some people reverting the remove of interwiki links because there is not such police on Commons. -- Perhelion 12:36, 31 May 2014 (UTC)

I seem to suck at RTFM...[edit]

...but I'm having a super hard time to find documentation and examples for getting the data out of Wikidata. How to you query stuff? This needs to be documented, or to be waaay more discoverable. --Dschwen (talk) 11:35, 12 August 2014 (UTC)

Unfortunately I am afraid that proper documentation (or any) of "getting the data out of Wikidata" is not considered as priority by Wikidata development team. --Jklamo (talk) 11:55, 13 August 2014 (UTC)
+1 that's why Wikidata was not considered a priority by myself :) and has been abandoned from my time schedule. -- Rillke(q?) 17:47, 13 December 2014 (UTC)

Translation admin mess[edit]

Dear editors, @Oursana, Lydia Pintscher (WMDE), Jheald, Kaganer: while attempting to mark this page for translation, I encountered the following issues:

Translation unit name 10 is used more than once.

Translation unit name 10 is used more than once.

Translation unit name 10 is used more than once.

Translation unit name 42 is used more than once.

Translation unit name 5 is used more than once.

Translation unit name 6 is used more than once.

Translation unit name 7 is used more than once.

Translation unit name 42 is used more than once.

Translation unit name 5 is used more than once.

Translation unit name 6 is used more than once.

Translation unit name 7 is used more than once. 

When editing, please do not copy translation markers. You can move complete units, enclosed by <translate> but please refrain from inserting translation unit markers (<!-- T:X -->) yourself. Please fix this issue ASAP by removing the HTML comment holding those duplicate translation unit markers (so, in the end, we have each number exactly one time); otherwise this page cannot be marked for translation. -- Rillke(q?) 17:54, 13 December 2014 (UTC)

Markup fixed. Dear Jheald, please be more careful in their edits! --Kaganer (talk) 12:01, 15 December 2014 (UTC)

P989 is lacking[edit]

There is also P989 for spoken audio, which should be listed. ~pikolas [[mia diskuto]] 01:45, 19 May 2015 (UTC)

You can list it yourself. But this is not the right place, you should go to wikidata anyway--Oursana (talk) 13:29, 19 May 2015 (UTC)

Problems with galleries with Wikidata[edit]

Don't know whether someone has already experienced this. But linking a gallery in the wikidata entry for a given wikipedia article can mislead a reader. Indeed a gallery is only a small part of the media related to a topic and is indeed a "partial" (point of view's) vision of the user who created it. Wouldn't be better if single articles haven't any link to a Commons gallery at all (in fact I don't even see any use in Commons galleries, being the categories the main item to be considered here)? -- SERGIO (aka the Blackcat) 15:10, 20 July 2015 (UTC)

I agree that links from Wikipedias and Wikidata to gallery pages on Commons should be discouraged or even made impossible, but that may well be a matter for the Wikipedias, not for Commons – see en:Template:Commons. -- Michael Bednarek (talk) 01:06, 21 July 2015 (UTC)
They were (and are) endless discussions about that on Wikidata (for example these two RfC), but no consensus at all (conclusion of that large RfC is widely ignored). --Jklamo (talk) 14:06, 21 July 2015 (UTC)

On Wikipedia[edit]

Would someone be able to help implement Wikidata in {{On Wikipedia}}? Template_talk:On_Wikipedia#Wikidata It would be nice to have a sister projects template automatically pull the Wikidata... In particular, it would make navigation to the encyclopedia page of your preferred language easier (if you don't see the interlanguage link). czar 14:56, 24 April 2016 (UTC)
