Hello, I wanna thank you for removing the reference. However, it is the wrong one. The reference that I asked for is immediately after this sentence : and a growing number of Antiochians are using it as an ethnic designation due to the Levant's Hellenistic and Byzantine past. Thanx and sorry if I wasn't clear in my request.--Attar-Aram syria (talk) 08:30, 9 June 2015 (UTC)
Hey. Thanks for helping creating new properties on Wikidata. I think it would be good not to remove information from the proposal discussion as in  or . On the property talk page it is desired to remove obsolete or redundant information from the template, but the proposal discussion page should stay in the state it was at the point of creation. --Pasleim (talk) 09:54, 15 June 2015 (UTC)
Okay, noted. From my experience with this template, a lot of the fields (description, datatype, example, etc.) are automatically filled if the relevant properties are defined. — Martin (MSGJ · talk) 10:09, 15 June 2015 (UTC)
More work on getting the Wikibase Quality extensions ready for deployment. They'll improve constraint checking and provide checks against 3rd party databases.
Special:UnconnectedPages had to be reworked (thanks Amir!) because of huge performance issues. Because of this it loses some functionality (being able to specify where the list starts and limiting the list to pages that have local interwiki links). We're working on bringing functionality back without the performance penalty.
Enabled arbitrary access on arwiki, cawiki, eswiki, huwiki, kowiki, rowiki, ukwiki, viwiki, and usage tracking on dewiki, ruwiki, cswiki and all s3 wikis. (ruwiki and cswiki get arbitrary access on June 23)
Finishing work on improved handling “invalid” values and statements with deleted properties.
Small breaking DOM change: Wikibase no longer adds its own h1 tag but uses MediaWiki's default .firstHeading element. (phabricator:T93534)
Hi, Can you give me rollbacker right? Last time I requested on "Permission for Rollbacker right" page month ago see here. I was denied last time because of my old block, but block on new users who don't know 3RR rule deeply are quite common, that time I thought that "My version is right so I will not get blocked". But over the time with experience on Wikipedia now I know policies very well. I usually revert vandalism also warn/welcome the user/IP. Rollbacker right will boost my confidence to continue my work. There is no question of abusing tool. (admin on that page suggested me to wait for 3 months since last block, currently its two months since last block, but you can see my edits in last two months.) --Human3015Call me maybe!! • 18:40, 27 June 2015 (UTC)
Upcoming: Wikimania. There will be several talks and workshops related to Wikidata. Say hi at the "Ask Us Anything" session for Wikidata if you're there.
Other Noteworthy Stuff
A new database report lists people categorized as dead in Wikipedia, but lacking Property:P570 (date of death). It's updated several times during the day. There are about 20 to 30 new entries each day. There is currently some backlog from the Arabic, Marathi, and Thai Wikipedias. Items updated first in Wikidata wont appear in the report. They are listed directly in Wikidata's recent deaths report.
