Please use edit summariesEdit

Greetings. Please use an edit summary when making changes: Help:Edit summary has more information. If you are moving interwiki links, you may wish to consider adding the {{Wikidata}} template to the category also. --Closeapple (talk)


You are receiving this message because a technical change may affect a bot, gadget, or user script you have been using. The breaking change involves API calls. This change has been planned for two years. The WMF will start making this change on 30 June 2015. A partial list of affected bots can be seen here: This includes all bots that are using pywikibot compat. Some of these bots have already been fixed. However, if you write user scripts or operate a bot that uses the API, then you should check your code, to make sure that it will not break.

What, exactly, is breaking? The "default continuation mode" for action=query requests to api.php will be changing to be easier for new coders to use correctly. To find out whether your script or bot may be affected, then search the source code (including any frameworks or libraries) for the string "query-continue". If that is not present, then the script or bot is not affected. In a few cases, the code will be present but not used. In that case, the script or bot will continue working.

This change will be part of 1.26wmf12. It will be deployed to test wikis (including on 30 June, to non-Wikipedias (such as Wiktionary) on 1 July, and to all Wikipedias on 2 July 2015.

If your bot or script is receiving the warning about this upcoming change (as seen at ), it's time to fix your code!

Either of the above solutions may be tested immediately, you'll know it works because you stop seeing the warning.

Do you need help with your own bot or script? Ask questions in e-mail on the mediawiki-api or wikitech-l mailing lists. Volunteers at m:Tech or w:en:WP:Village pump (technical) or w:en:Wikipedia:Bot owners' noticeboard may also be able to help you.

Are you using someone else's gadgets or user scripts? Most scripts are not affected. To find out if a script you use needs to be updated, then post a note at the discussion page for the gadget or the talk page of the user who originally made the script.

File:"The path less trodden" - - 103071.jpgEdit

Hi, thanks for checking the categories of this image, but (1) it's a track, not a road, (2) it's in East Lothian, not Scottish Borders (although it's close to the border) and (3) it's on Category:Priestlaw Hill, which you could easily have created.

Refining vs. removingEdit

Here and elsewhere, why are you removing year categories rather than refine them? - Jmabel ! talk 15:20, 15 September 2015 (UTC)


Hi Gbarta ... This edit of yours is an example of over-categorization because the category you added, Category:Painters from the United States is a parent category of Category:19th-century painters from the United States. I've reverted the edit. Please be careful not to over-categorize. Regards and happy editing! --Sanfranman59 (talk) 19:41, 28 September 2015 (UTC)

Overcat II.Edit

Hi Gbarta ... I've reverted this edit, because the category you added is already added Category:Fiendship fountain (Vác). Please be careful not to over-categorize. I'm happy to discuss this with you here if you wish. Regards and happy editing! - - Globetrotter19 (talk) 12:29, 9 July 2016 (UTC)


Szia! Ha nincs berakva a kép valamelyik kategóriába, akkor automatikusan megjelenik egy hibaüzenet. Ezt nem kell eltávolítani, hanem betenni valamelyik kategóriába, akkor ez automatikusan eltűnik. A kategória angol vagy latin nyelvű lehet. Személy esetében célszerű a nevére kategorizálni, mert akkor közvetlenül betehető a datába. Üdv. Tambo (talk) 07:41, 1 September 2016 (UTC)

Sort keyEdit

Hi, why are you deleting the sort key on several of your edits? Jan Arkesteijn (talk) 19:48, 27 March 2017 (UTC)

Hi @Jmabel: I guess this user never takes a look at this page and at red alerts when someone reverts him...   LW² \m/ (Lie ² me...) 22:40, 23 October 2017 (UTC)


Please note, that this template should be substed - see the documentation of the template. Thx. --JuTa 06:02, 16 August 2017 (UTC)

Overcat III...Edit

Hi! Would you please stop overcategorizing. A rock guitarist is a guitarsit and a guitarist is a musician so "Rock Guitarists from somewhere" means "Guitarists from somewhere" and "Musician from somewhere". That's all. Thanks   LW² \m/ (Lie ² me...) 21:30, 11 October 2017 (UTC)


Szia! Ezt miért törölted? --Regasterios (talk) 14:16, 27 February 2018 (UTC)

Szia! Egy választ adhatnál. --Regasterios (talk) 16:04, 28 February 2018 (UTC)

A Wikidatával való szinkronizálása során az On Wikidata úgy mutatja, mintha már szinkronizálva lenne, pedig nem. --Gbarta (talk) 16:08, 28 February 2018 (UTC)

Nem mondom, hogy értem, de azért köszönöm. --Regasterios (talk) 19:40, 28 February 2018 (UTC)

Data deletingEdit

Hallo, please do not delete data unless you move it to Wikidata. Gumruch (talk) 23:25, 28 February 2018 (UTC)

You never acknowledged this message and you still seem to be deleting data. Please respond or do I need to block you to get your attention? Multichill (talk) 21:55, 28 April 2018 (UTC)

I always moves the data before deleting the Wikidata. I don't want you to block me. Most of my edits are correct. I'm sorry if I do something wrong. --Gbarta (talk) 08:22, 29 April 2018 (UTC)

Same here. --Marsupium (talk) 08:29, 12 September 2018 (UTC)

Category:Auguste CainEdit

Hi, Gbarta looking into this file description, I noticed date of birth of Cairn is indicated 1922. Any idea where this can be checked? Thank you for your time. Lotje (talk) 11:37, 14 September 2018 (UTC)

@Lotje: Citing from AKL (subscription required unfortunately): “Cain, Auguste-Nicolas, frz. Tierbildhauer, Medailleur, *10.11.1821 (nicht 4.11.1822) Paris, †6.8.1894 ebd.” (translation of bold part: “not 4 November 1821”). BTW, Gbarta, you shouldn't remove well sourced data at Wikidata, even if it's wrong, please set the rank to “deprecated” as I've done now. :-) Happy editing you two, --Marsupium (talk) 07:00, 19 September 2018 (UTC)
@Marsupium: thanks for your kind help. Is it allright, if next time I come across something similar, to address myself to you? Lotje (talk) 12:14, 19 September 2018 (UTC)

Moin Moin Gbarta, I saw you inserted empty defaultsorts. In fact it's completely unnecessary, because the Wikidata Infobox is sufficient. Regards --Crazy1880 (talk) 20:11, 16 February 2019 (UTC)

Hi Gbarta, is there a reason for the empty {{DEFAULTSORT:}} in categories like Category:Atze de Vrieze? --Arnd (talk) 14:06, 4 April 2019 (UTC)

ok, i will delete them. --Arnd (talk) 06:56, 8 April 2019 (UTC)
