Wikipedia redirects, {Authority control}[edit]

Follow up to User talk:P64#LAC (its 2023-01-19 continuation):
Does Wikidata now welcome people items for subjects of English Wikipedia redirects who are not covered by a Wikipedia article in any language? Heavy use of template {authority control} in my user space dates from my creation and curation of many Redirects from people, such as the first 200 Redirects to joint biographies. --P64 (talk) 19:22, 23 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

... I see that you have done some work in this class recently, about the same time you wrote to me (linked above). For instance 2022-11-17:

What is the current status of this migration project?
For me to try soon: Does this work on Jerry West provide adequate template for me to follow? --P64 (talk) 19:55, 23 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Done. Answer: No, I don't know how at Wikidata to add a link to redirect with badge: intentional sitelink to redirect. --P64 (talk) 21:00, 23 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Does this question relate to Victor Appleton II? I have created Victor Appleton II (Q116879187) and you can try to add the sitelink and redirect badge if you wish — Martin (MSGJ · talk) 21:53, 23 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Victor Appleton II is one instance. There I have now migrated to Wikidata all of the parameter values that I gathered at VIAF early today, Thursday here. So that redirect has been fixed.
I have created many people items at Wikidata. Now I know how to link redirects with badge: intentional sitelink to redirect, using the faint badge icon that appeared for me at Victor Appleton II early this hour. Thanks. I am out of time today, and maybe this month. --P64 (talk) 01:51, 24 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Have you noticed the quickstatements link (multi-coloured arrow) which appears when parameters are present? Might save you some time — Martin (MSGJ · talk) 09:57, 24 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Yes, Wikidata contains many notable people who do not yet have a Wikipedia article. And if an item does not yet exist, then you should please create it. The standard for inclusion is "refers to an instance of a clearly identifiable conceptual or material entity that can be described using serious and publicly available references." Obviously, any potential subject for a Wikipedia article would meet this rather low bar. — Martin (MSGJ · talk) 21:47, 23 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

A speedy deletion request[edit]

Hello MSGJ,

Thanks for your help on the CSD G6 request on Template:Editnotices/You should notify any user that you discuss.

Template:Editnotices/Notcensored (nudity) is another bundle of template redirects to be speedily deleted under the same criteria, which is left over from moving an editnotice created at the wrong title. Please help me delete it. NmWTfs85lXusaybq (talk) 15:41, 26 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Thank you! — Martin (MSGJ · talk) 20:43, 2 March 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

How is it going with the banner shell project? Anything I can do to help move it along? Aymatth2 (talk) 14:40, 11 March 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Should have time to devote in the next week, hopefully! I might need some help testing, will let you know — Martin (MSGJ · talk) 21:31, 11 March 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Thanks. I suppose this has been waiting for many years, but it is hard not to feel impatient. Aymatth2 (talk) 21:12, 15 March 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
We're getting there. Module:WikiProject quality assessment passes all my tests. Please check Module talk:WikiProject quality assessment/testcases and also Template talk:WikiProject banner shell/testcases, Template talk:WikiProject banner shell/test1 and Template talk:WikiProject banner shell/test2. Let me know if you see anything untoward.
I haven't started work on the standalone version of the banner shell yet, but I think that could be stage 2, because there shouldn't be of those in the wild. — Martin (MSGJ · talk) 21:52, 24 March 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]


Hello, MSGJ,

For some reason, some categories you recently created are showing up on Wikipedia:Database reports/Empty categories even they have an Empty Category tag on them. Sometimes this has led me to add a second Empty Cat tag but it looks kind of ridiculous to have a duplicate tag. Any ideas? Liz Read! Talk! 01:19, 19 March 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
