It's a terrible search engine so it doesn't know any q numbers, but I was
surprised at how it knew some properties to use - it must have found enough
example queries on the web to know things like start date and end date. I
may have been cheating just a bit when I told it to use P642, and I'm not
sure why it came up with trying to use a country as a constraint, but it's
Those first two tweets were my second try at it. My first try I might
have used a bit too much SPARQL in my feedback chats and it felt a bit like
writing the query for it but I was equally impressed - it even used a blank
node in its query
I don't know if it remembers my previous chats, so I don't know if my
second time with a chat session was preconditioned on the first, but even
if it did the first time I tried it was really good.
Admittedly a simple query but it was still impressive. I think remembering
that it's a prose generator and you want to steer it towards writing you

Hello Wikidata Query users,
We are aware of an ongoing issue with WDQS that begun around 1500 UTC today. To stabilize the service, we have introduced drastic measures including banning cloud provider IPs and certain user agents. Unfortunately, this will likely affect legitimate users of the service. We are currently working on less disruptive measures and will update https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T324346 when we have more information to share. Thanks for your patience, and we sincerely apologize for the inconvenience.
