From: Hello, I'm Here To Help Wikipedia!
I now understand that typing in C.-E. was un-necessary. Thank-you! (I was doing this on Charon.)
Hey I want you to become my mentor. I want to mostly review articles and possibly write new scientific articles. My interests are science and math, chemistry, biology, physics, calculus, trigonometry, geometry. I read a lot of scientific articles, ex textbooks, new developing things, and also a member of a scientific organization. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Hawkx101 (talk • contribs)

Hi Ruslik0, thanks for your contribution to the delivery/order list update. However, the two Myanmar Air Force machines were never to be delivered, and the citation which you provided does not confirm the fact of delivery. In fact, the orders were cancelled, and it is stated at the "accidents" page, following the very same link (currently, citation #29). Therefore, the total number of delivered machines is 24, not 26.

Editorial: Core models and topics
Wikimedians interest themselves in everything under the sun — and then some. Discussion on "core topics" may, oddly, be a fringe activity, and was popular here a decade ago.
The situation on Wikidata today does resemble the halcyon days of 2006 of the English Wikipedia. The growth is there, and the reliability and stylistic issues are not yet pressing in on the project. Its Berlin conference at the end of October will have five years of achievement to celebrate. Think Wikimania Frankfurt 2005.
Progress must be made, however, on referencing "core facts". This has two parts: replacing "imported from Wikipedia" in referencing by external authorities; and picking out statements, such as dates and family relationships, that must not only be reliable but be seen to be reliable.
In addition, there are many properties on Wikidata lacking a clear data model. An emerging consensus may push to the front key sourcing and biomedical properties as requiring urgent attention. Wikidata's "manual of style" is currently distributed over thousands of discussions. To make it coalesce, work on such a core is needed.
Hi. We're into the last five days of the Women in Red World Contest. There's a new bonus prize of $200 worth of books of your choice to win for creating the most new women biographies between 0:00 on the 26th and 23:59 on 30th November. If you've been contributing to the contest, thank you for your support, we've produced over 2000 articles. If you haven't contributed yet, we would appreciate you taking the time to add entries to our articles achievements list by the end of the month. Thank you, and if participating, good luck with the finale!
Hello, I’ve come to you for advice. I was blocked for sock puppetry. Some people involved understand that I am not the person (jim from idegon) but some people don’t. This leads to any requests for permissions (even basic ones) be denied. What can I do to make sure I am not confused for the other person. My email to the check user team has fallen on deaf ears and any attempt I make to clear my name is unsuccessful. Thank you, Ral 33 (talk) 22:27, 6 January 2018 (UTC)
@Ruslik0 I have not gotten a response from bbb23 and he removed my question on his talk page. Who do I go to now? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Ral 33 (talk • contribs) 21:15, 15 January 2018 (UTC)

Metadata on the March
From the days of hard-copy liner notes on music albums, metadata have stood outside a piece or file, while adding to understanding of where it comes from, and some of what needs to be appreciated about its content. In the GLAM sector, the accumulation of accurate metadata for objects is key to the mission of an institution, and its presentation in cataloguing.
Today Wikipedia turns 17, with worlds still to conquer. Zooming out from the individual GLAM object to the ontology in which it is set, one such world becomes apparent: GLAMs use custom ontologies, and those introduce massive incompatibilities. From a recent article by , we quote the observation that "vocabularies needed for many collections, topics and intellectual spaces defy the expectations of the larger professional communities." A job for the encyclopedist, certainly. But the data-minded Wikimedian has the advantages of Wikidata, starting with its multilingual data, and facility with aliases. The controlled vocabulary — sometimes referred to as a "thesaurus" as term of art — simplifies search: if a "spade" must be called that, rather than "shovel", it is easier to find all spade references. That control comes at a cost.
Case studies in that article show what can lie ahead. The schema crosswalk, in jargon, is a potential answer to the GLAM Babel of proliferating and expanding vocabularies. Even if you have no interest in Wikidata as such, simply vocabularies V and W, if both V and W are matched to Wikidata, then a "crosswalk" arises from term v in V to w in W, whenever v and w both match to the same item d in Wikidata.
For metadata mobility, match to Wikidata. It's apparently that simple: infrastructure requirements have turned out, so far, to be challenges that can be met.
