A barnstar for you![edit]

The Teamwork Barnstar
Thank you for your collaborative edits again. I was busy, in real life, so a joy to find that Ellinor Gertrude Walker had magically improved. Victuallers (talk) 22:35, 4 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]
Always happy to help, @Victuallers. I was up earlier than usual and hoped I wasn't treading on your toes. I see you've added plenty more important info. Thank you! Oronsay (talk) 23:14, 4 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]

Wikidata weekly summary #626[edit]

Here's your quick overview of what has been happening around Wikidata over the last week.
This is the Wikidata summary of the week before 2024-05-06.
Translations are available.

Press, articles, blog posts, videos

Tool of the week

  • Wikidata periodic table - Tool by User:Ricordisamoa, to browse all chemical elements available on Wikidata, with atomic number, chemical symbol, and localized label. It also includes two charts of the nuclides, with links to every isotope in Wikidata, colored by half-life or decay mode.

Other Noteworthy Stuff

  • A new UI mode is available for the online validator for EntitySchemas. It represents validation reports as a table rather than a very long string, and replaces most links with hyperlinks with some of the text behind them; making them easier to read. Currently being tested at https://shex-validator.toolforge.org/packages/shex-webapp/doc/shex-simple-improved.html, we are looking for participants to evaluate this tool. Some experience with editing Wikidata is appreciated, but no experience working with Schemas is required. If you are interested, you can sign up here. We hope to begin interviews around May 13. For more details, visit User:M.alten.tue

Notice

The article Jovana Milosevic has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

Fails WP:SPORTSCRIT and WP:NOLY.

While all constructive contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, pages may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the page to address the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. In particular, the speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion.

This bot DID NOT nominate any of your contributions for deletion; please refer to the history of each individual page for details. Thanks, FastilyBot (talk) 10:00, 12 June 2024 (UTC)[reply]
