we plan to drop the wb_entity_per_page table sometime soon, because
it is just not required (as we will likely always have a programmatic
mapping from entity id to page title) and it does not supported non
-numeric entity ids as it is now. Due to this removing it is a blocker
for the commons metadata.
Is anybody using that for their tools (on tool labs)? If so, please
tell us so that we can give you instructions and a longer grace period
to update your scripts.
My name is Glorian Yapinus, but you can simply call me Glorian ;) . For the
next 6 months, I will assist Lydia in supporting you all.
Regarding to my educational background, I hold a bachelor's degree in
Information Technology and currently, I am working on my Master's in
Software Engineering and Management.
I am a warm and nice person. So, please do not hesitate to reach out to me
for any queries :-)
Last but not least, I am looking forward to working with you.

I think this topic might have been discussed many months ago. For
certain data types in the chemical compound space (P233, canonical
smiles, P2017 isomeric smiles and P234 Inchi key) a higher character
limit than 400 would be really helpful (1500 to 2000 chars (I sense
that this might cause problems with SPARQL)). Are there any plans on
implementing this? In general, for quality assurance, many string
property types would profit from a fixed max string length.

Hi, how about a wikipedia about objects?
Instead of generic articles of , for example, "Ballpoint pen" or "Bic
cristal" it would be "Ballpoint pen Bic cristal 2014", using Wikidata
propreties and doing these for millions of objects would allow people to
have an open, free, universal and structured place to refer specific objects

Dear SPARQL users,
We are starting a research project to investigate the use of the
Wikidata SPARQL Query Service, with the goal to gain insights that may
help to improve Wikidata and the query service . Currently, we are
still waiting for all data to become available. Meanwhile, we would like
to ask for your input.
Preliminary analyses show that the use of the SPARQL query service
varies greatly over time, presumably because power users and software
tools are running large numbers of queries. For a meaningful analysis,
we would like to understand such high-impact biases in the data. We
therefore need your help:
(1) Are you a SPARQL power user who sometimes runs large numbers of
queries (over 10,000)? If so, please let us know how your queries might
typically look so we can identify them in the logs.
(2) Are you the developer of a tool that launches SPARQL queries? If so,
then please let us know if there is any way to identify your queries.
If (1) or (2) applies to you, then it would be good if you could include
an identifying comment into your SPARQL queries in the future, to make
it easier to recognise them. In return, this would enable us to provide
you with statistics on the usage of your tool .
Further feedback is welcome.
 Pending permission by the WMF. Like all Wikimedia usage data, the
query logs are under strict privacy protection, so we will need to get
clearance before sharing any findings with the public. We hope, however,
that there won't be any reservations against publishing non-identifying

Hello,In case of "edit conflict" the Wikidata UI doesn't provide any explanation about the root cause. It makes the conflict impossible to fix for users. Would it be possible to provide more clues/explanations in the UI?
Case in point:
1) Brad Pitt currently has three spouses on Wikidata: Jennifer Aniston, Angelina Jolie, and "2016".=> See https://www.wikidata.org/wiki/Q35332
2) I logged in and tried to remove the third "spouse" but it didn't go through and returned an edit conflict.
=> See screenshot attached.
