Wikidata primary sources tool: call for support[edit]

Dear @Pintoch:

You are listed as a WikiCite 2016 attendee: it was nice to meet you in Berlin, I really enjoyed the event.

Remember work group 4, StrepHit and the Wikidata primary sources tool? I just wanted to let you know that the StrepHit team is requesting a renewal to give the tool a boost.

Do you think the tool needs an uplift? If so, please consider an endorsement of the StrepHit IEG renewal through the following link:


Feel also free to comment the work plan in the renewal talk page: your thoughts are precious.

Thanks a lot for your time, looking forward to your feedback.

Nice to meet you; OII links[edit]

Nice to meet you Pintoch. Oxford Internet Institute events are listed here: https://www.oii.ox.ac.uk/events/. If you sign up for at least one event via EventBrite, you'll get onto the events mailing list.

It didn't occur to me to collect your email address - feel free to track me down further via Twitter and my personal URL listed there: https://twitter.com/argotechnica. See you next time! Argotechnica (talk) 18:25, 22 January 2017 (UTC)Reply

Hi Argotechnica, thanks for the link! Sorry for not replying earlier, I rarely go on meta. See you at the next meetup! − Pintoch (talk) 22:26, 27 January 2017 (UTC)Reply

Nice to meet you![edit]

Also here was the phab ticket where I've recently discussed the raw citation -> template problem before: https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T179123. Please comment if you have any additional insight.

I think writing a Node.js library for it might be a nice little project- possibly could be a GSoC/Outreachy project. Mvolz (talk) 16:07, 19 November 2017 (UTC)Reply

@Mvolz: thanks a lot! I have chimed in there to mention the parsing tool I was aware of. Also, the OA tool I used Zotero for is available here: https://tools.wmflabs.org/oabot/ . See you soon at OpenCon Oxford! − Pintoch (talk) 10:07, 20 November 2017 (UTC)Reply

Oxford 58[edit]

Hi, did you create Meetup/Oxford/58? I was deliberately holding back on that because I was not sure that the date was available for me. In fact, it turns out that the date might be difficult because I have been put on the rota from 10:00 until 20:00 (ten hours) on Sunday 18 February 2018, so I was going to ask around to see if another date would be convenient. I have started Talk:Meetup/Oxford/58#Date of meetup on this matter. --Redrose64 (talk; at English Wikipedia) 23:07, 3 February 2018 (UTC)Reply

Hi Redrose64 - yes sorry about that! I was proposing to some people to join us so I had to give them the link to the page (otherwise it would have been awkward to give them a page to a previous meetup). I was also away from my account so this is why I had to create it as an IP. I will reply there about the date. − Pintoch (talk) 23:14, 3 February 2018 (UTC)Reply

International Women's Day Editathon[edit]

Just a reminder that the International Women's Day Editathon at the Oxfordshire County Library is tomorrow. Hope to see you there!

Societies with OA journals[edit]

From https://cyber.harvard.edu/hoap/Societies_and_Open_Access_Research via [1]: can we import the catalog of Society Publishers with Open Access Journals into Wikidata? I mean the two statements "X is an OA journal" and "X belongs to a society". I think most journals and many societies are already in Wikidata, so I suppose the biggest difficulty is the deduplication of the name column. This would be a good little project for me to learn OpenRefine+Wikidata editing, but only if nobody else is doing it already. :) --Nemo 13:45, 14 October 2018 (UTC)Reply

@Nemo bis: hey, that's a great idea! I am not aware of anyone doing that at the moment so just go ahead! I'd be happy to help with any OpenRefine issues :) − Pintoch (talk) 13:48, 14 October 2018 (UTC)Reply
Alright! I'll first ask the maintainers and DOAJ whether that's the most up to date version of the data. --Nemo 14:08, 14 October 2018 (UTC)Reply
@Nemo bis: Ah if it's DOAJ data then be aware of this stalled import by John Cummings: https://www.wikidata.org/wiki/Wikidata:Dataset_Imports/Directory_of_Open_Access_JournalsPintoch (talk) 14:10, 14 October 2018 (UTC)Reply

Thank you for your Wikidata/OpenRefine tutorials[edit]

Great stuff and have been very helpful for me. Thank you! —Todrobbins (talk) 15:42, 17 December 2018 (UTC)

@Todrobbins: awesome, that is very nice to read, thanks! − Pintoch (talk) 15:44, 17 December 2018 (UTC)Reply

Notification about a grant request[edit]


As someone who commented about my grant request (including the talk page) last year requesting funding to create the GlobalWatchlist extension, I thought you might want to know that I have requested another grant to continue development. You can see the new request at Grants:Project/DannyS712/Continued work on GlobalWatchlist extension - if you support this, I hope you'll consider endorsing the request.

My apologies if you were already aware of the new grant request (I sent a similar message to the subscribers of User:DannyS712/Global watchlist/Updates - sorry for any duplicates).

Thanks, --DannyS712 (talk) 00:43, 19 April 2021 (UTC)Reply

Hello and thanks for being an unvoluntary guinea pig![edit]

Rusty thanks you for helping us test MassMessage!


You probably already knew this, but let me confirm: you are a true pioneer, one of the first people to sign up for news about OpenRefine and Structured Data on Commons. Thanks for being here from the start; we'll certainly keep you in the loop! -- Sandra (talk)
