I recently moved Category:British overseas territories to Category:British Overseas Territories, and tried to fix the links to connect it to British Overseas Territories (Q46395). The infobox was showing data for British crown dependency (Q185086), which links to Category:British Crown Dependencies. Not the same at all.

I added |qid=Q46395 to the British Overseas Territories infobox to point to the right item. Pi bot took out the |qid= and it reverted to British Crown Dependencies. I can't see where it is getting that connection from. Aymatth2 (talk) 20:31, 23 March 2019 (UTC)

(talk page stalker) @Aymatth2: What a mess on Wikidata. The entry for Category:British Overseas Territories and Crown Dependencies (Q8875148) had two main topics. Both Category:British Overseas Territories and Crown Dependencies (Q8875148) and Category:British Overseas Territories (Q8266795) had sitelinks to Category:British Overseas Territories on Commons. One missed out the word 'category' which allowed it to circumvent the rule that only one sitelink can be made to one project.
I think I've fixed it all on Wikidata now. Please check that it's working as expected. Cheers --RexxS (talk) 21:14, 23 March 2019 (UTC)
That looks like it works. I would never have found Category:British Overseas Territories and Crown Dependencies (Q8875148) as the culprit. Thanks a lot. Aymatth2 (talk) 21:48, 23 March 2019 (UTC)
