Cleaning Creator templatesEdit

Hi, Now the Creator template fully supports Wikidata. However there are plenty of them with the data on Commons, which should be cleaned (e.g. [1]). It should be easy with a bot. Thanks, Yann (talk) 15:57, 30 May 2017 (UTC)

BTW any idea why the occupation doesn't appear here: Creator:Sergey Fedorovich Oldenburg? Yann (talk) 16:40, 30 May 2017 (UTC)
Strange, I have no idea. Btw, search [2] shows 25.171 hits. --Achim (talk) 17:06, 30 May 2017 (UTC)
At Creator:Johannes Regiomontanus (I didn't change) name aliases won't show up. --Achim (talk) 17:57, 30 May 2017 (UTC)
Yes, we need to add this to the code. And also a link to Wikisource when there is an entry, e.g. Creator:Philippe-Édouard Foucaux. Yann (talk) 18:31, 30 May 2017 (UTC)
Yann, the Wikisource problem is a bad thing, thanks for your example: a) Wikidata keeps the data of Wikisource links, why should we add them by hand? b) what to do like in this case if there are more than one Wikisource links? LangSwitch? Maybe we should wait until the surroundig conditions are better... --Achim (talk) 18:47, 30 May 2017 (UTC)
As far as I know, Jarekt (talk · contribs) is spearheading the coding of the new template. We should wait until Jarekt gives his OK or let Jarektbot do the replacement. --Hedwig in Washington (mail?) 19:53, 30 May 2017 (UTC)
Achim: Now, only link to the English Wikisource is added. LangSwitch should work for that. Regards, Yann (talk) 20:12, 30 May 2017 (UTC)
I just looked at Module:Creator/sandbox line 502 and I think I know how to fix the wikisource issue. We will need to add "nationality" values as another "fallback" in addition to "en". I will write prototype and test it. --Jarekt (talk) 20:33, 30 May 2017 (UTC)

User:Hedwig in Washington is right, I am working on this issue, but it might take a while. I am also working on better version of Module:Creator with better maintenance categories. Within a week you should expect to see a more maintenance categories including categories flagging fields on commons but not on Wikidata ("Missing" data), fields with mismatching values between Commons and Wikidata and fields with identical "redundant" values between Commons and Wikidata. I will also have Category:Creator templates with Wikidata link: quick statements with creator templates which have data which can be transferred to Wikidata by clicking on  . I could use some help with several smaller related tasks:

  1. Grab one of the "Missing" categories from Category:Creator template maintenance and see if a bot can move some or all of the values to Wikidata
  2. See Category:Creator templates with Wikidata link: item mismatching P19‎ and Category:Creator templates with Wikidata link: item mismatching P20 and see if some of the values can be reconciled
  3. All or most templates from Category:Creator templates with authority control data should be matched with existing Wikidata items or new items should be created. This task was completed about a year ago but I guess those are new ones.

If anybody want to try some Lua, than I also have several unsolved problems related to Module:Creator. They are listed in the header of Module:Creator/sandbox and include things like like handling of "Alternative names" or better handling of "occupation" and "nationality". Any help would be appreciated. --Jarekt (talk) 20:26, 30 May 2017 (UTC)

Jarekt: Thanks a lot for working on that, this is great. I am now cleaning the templates I created myself from Wikidata. Regards, Yann (talk) 20:48, 30 May 2017 (UTC)

Emptying Category:Incorrect dateEdit

Is it possible to emptying by replacing the date and template with the uploading date using a bot?Thank you ديفيد عادل وهبة خليل 2 (talk) 13:04, 31 May 2017 (UTC)

  Comment this is potentially counterproductive, because many "wrong dates" can easily be corrected by humans, especially in case of typos, where the exact date is given in EXIF, see eg. [3] or [4]), or in case of really old images (see eg. [5]). but if a bot replaces any wrong date string only with the upload date (which is present, anyway), this causes loss of exactness, i think. Holger1959 (talk) 13:28, 31 May 2017 (UTC)
@Holger1959:
  • I think most of the pictures are "Self-published work"
  • The number is large so the category needs to a bot
