AFD of List of Dewey Decimal classes[edit]

I have put in a deletion request for List of Dewey Decimal classes as it appears to be a copyright violation. I'm notifying you as you have either made multiple edits to the article in the past year and/or on the talk page for that article and Talk:Dewey Decimal Classification. --Marc Kupper|talk 04:28, 25 November 2013 (UTC)

I don't think it is a violation, but I will ask @Merrilee: who is more of an expert. Maximilianklein (talk) 16:08, 25 November 2013 (UTC)

Are VIAF errors still being processed?[edit]

Hi, I wondered if errors reported on Wikipedia:VIAF/errors are still being dealt with? At least it seems that the rate of new reports coming in is higher than the rate of resolved issues. :-) Is there a way to help? Chirlu (talk) 15:01, 22 December 2013 (UTC)

@Chirlu:, all the errors are made aware to the VIAF.org team. Then eventually (with what speed is hard to say) the are incorporated into VIAF.org . The best thing to do is to make Wikidata correct, then use the authority control template without VIAF parameters given, so that it fetches the authority control data from Wikidata. Once Wikipedia becomes correct then it is the onus of VIAF.org to place their merges and they will follow the look to Wikidata. Maximilianklein (talk) 17:30, 23 December 2013 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for February 2[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Feminist aesthetics, you added links pointing to the disambiguation pages Sublime and Hume (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

User:AnnBLea's identity[edit]

Max, is AnnBLea's identity known, or is she one of the "keep my name secret" Wikipedians? If the latter, I'm not sure you would have wanted to post a photo of her on her User page, where her nametag might give away her identity. - 70.192.131.218 (talk) 13:41, 21 March 2014 (UTC)

Look forward to see you at Berkeley today![edit]

Hi there. Thanks for signing up for the WikiWomen's Edit-a-Thon at Berkeley that is happening today. I look forward to seeing you! We have changed the on-campus venue due to the response we've had, via Wikipedia and Facebook. Please take a look at the event page. If you get this message too late, we'll have a sign on the door of the former location directing you to the new one, which is only a short walk. See you then!

New altmetric[edit]

Hi Max, re the "sum of the page views of each page on which the DOI appears" altmetric at [1], where is that table kept updated? Could you please publish the top 100 monthly somewhere? Do you have scripts for it available somewhere? Thank you! EllenCT (talk) 03:51, 28 May 2014 (UTC)

@EllenCT: I will put constantly re-running these stats on my todo-list! However, I have to prioritize finishing the signalling OA project, of which that study was a part. Do you know another person that's experienced in running monthly alt-metrics? Since all my code is open and linked in that blog, its possible for somenone else to make this recurring tool before I catch up on my backlog of intention. Maximilianklein (talk) 13:47, 31 May 2014 (UTC)
I used to take periodic readership stats of my watchlist to try to spot trends and readership patterns, but I've never published a periodic altmetric. The WP:SIGNPOST does a column on readership statistics. What is signalling OA? What is the URL for the code?
@Dispenser: are you porting [2] to Tool Labs? EllenCT (talk) 23:59, 31 May 2014 (UTC)
@EllenCT: just spoke to @Dispenser: about this. Dispenser, looks like you can run a script continuously with the
jsub -continously
self restarting command, see documentation. or use https://wikitech.wikimedia.org/wiki/Nova_Resource:Tools/Help#Scheduling_jobs_at_regular_intervals_with_cron. Does this intrigue you? Maximilianklein (talk) 14:05, 1 June 2014 (UTC)
Yes, but the Markov alternatives to DSGE that you found for your talk intrigue me more; I wish I wasn't out of town that day. I hope to use [3] in my study of conflicts of interest. Thank you both! EllenCT (talk) 06:55, 3 June 2014 (UTC)
On second thought, [4] is looking so good I might finally get around to trying graphics some day. EllenCT (talk) 07:15, 3 June 2014 (UTC)
@EllenCT: I'm pleased it was helpful. Particularly if it's for research that intriugues me. I'd love to know a bit more about your research. If you want some custom data pulled before I get around to building the monthly version, let me know.
Please, yes, please show the top 1000 and its date if a current one is more difficult than historical. I hypothesize a correlation with astroturf dollars spent. EllenCT (talk) 06:01, 19 June 2014 (UTC)

mwparserfromhell supports python 3[edit]

Or so it claims. See the first PG in the readme @ https://github.com/earwig/mwparserfromhell.

I just got chance to sit down with this and I wanted to confirm that you were having trouble using it in python 3. --EpochFail (talkcontribs) 14:25, 28 May 2014 (UTC)

@EpochFail: Indeed it does. I was jumping to conclusions it seems. But you mapper in xml_dumps still needs to re-raise errors faithfully :) Maximilianklein (talk) 03:26, 31 May 2014 (UTC)

Great American Wiknic 2014 - Bay Area[edit]

I'd like to invite you to add a Bay Area event for the Great American Wiknic.

A research idea about WIkidata and gender[edit]

Hi Max. Correct me if I am wrong, but this is your article? Brilliant. I was just directed to it today (unfortunately I missed earlier), but it meshes up really well with my recent idea which I described at Wikipedia:Village_pump_(technical)#Extracting_biographical_data_from_Wikipedia. Perhaps you could offer me some advice (your code-fu is much greater then mine, as I lack skills to extract data from Wikipedia dumps, API, etc., and without a spreadsheet I cannot begin my work), or perhaps we could do some research together? Cheers, --Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus| reply here 09:39, 22 June 2014 (UTC)

@Piotrus:, thank you for the kind words. I do not mind offering advice, but I would be more excited to collaborate on research. In fact as you mention the village pump, the next step is to consider this across the time variable. I would like to contribute some code-fu, and in return need a bit of direction in formulating the correct Research Question. Maximilianklein (talk) 18:47, 22 June 2014 (UTC)
Excellent. I have started a public project page at [5]. Perhaps we can collaborate on this together! --Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus| reply here 19:44, 22 June 2014 (UTC)

Lovely explanation / tutorial page @Pigsonthewing:, gets me very excited about the possibilities. Indeed I will be at Wikimania for a chat, and hope to contribute as I can for Identifiers. Maximilianklein (talk) 08:38, 25 July 2014 (UTC)

Anne Bishop at Wikidata (WD)[edit]

Hi, MK.

Previously Anne Bishop https://www.wikidata.org/wiki/Q460303 mixed two people, American fiction writer en:Anne Bishop and Canadian education or sociology writer Anne Charlotte Bishop, 1950– (LAC). The one description and all Wikipedia links belonged to the fiction writer, so I "fixed" this at WikiData as follows:

  1. create Anne Charlotte Bishop https://www.wikidata.org/wiki/Q17437630
  2. add to ACB all statements from AB that belong to ACB (date of birth and four authority ID)
  3. delete from AB all those statements
  4. make some other changes at AB, mainly update the LCNAF identifier

My history User contributions for P64 - Wikidata shows no other recent activity. Is this simple method appropriate and sufficient? Nothing more to do at Wikidata? WD documentation is too long and complex for me so I simply ask you. Thanks in advance.

What about WD "references? I added and deleted no WD references manually, so there are none for ACB and those for AB are survivors from automated import.

The crucial source for me to split these two people is LAC: Anne Charlotte Bishop. I don't see how to add this as a reference for her at WD. (When I try to "add reference", and enter freeform data in the composition window, I have only the option to "cancel", never to "save" --so I have never added any reference.) Nor see how to add LCA=7C0070F7990 as a property. Does the project not recognize the Canada authority?

(French and German Wikipedias were the references given for bad identifiers, the ones that I "moved" from AB to ACB. I did fix fr:Anne Bishop and de:Anne Bishop footers. VIAF "errors" seem to reflect mistakes by US and German national libraries. I filed error reports to both and did nothing at WP:VIAF/errors. I'll tell you what happens, and perhaps how soon it happens.)

--P64 (talk) 00:28, 29 July 2014 (UTC)

Guten morgen (hier). Automatic email acknowledgment from Germany, received 21 hours ago. Human thanks with notices that data have been corrected, received 3 hours ago from GND, 2 hours ago from Washington (8:20!). GND says VIAF update is automatic "several times a year - hopefully the next one is soon." --P64 (talk) 14:40, 29 July 2014 (UTC)
That's a great success story, thanks for all your hard effort @P64:. Maximilianklein (talk) 09:37, 30 July 2014 (UTC)
