Wikidata for list improvement[edit]

Thought this might be useful to share .... I've recently identified an appropriate query for improving lists of people sharing a surname. This has been applied to Johnston (surname) and is being applied to Ferguson (name) (the surname section). The Ferguson-related query is below and I've identified a good transformation (utilizing a spreadsheet app) to create draft line items that about 50% of the time needs some revision before publication.

The 'ferguson' wikidata query is...

#People sharing the surname Ferguson
#retrieving wikipedia article
#ordered by article link
SELECT ?person ?article ?DOB ?DOD ?DESC
WHERE
{
  ?person wdt:P31 wd:Q5 .   # human
  ?person wdt:P734 wd:Q2694490 .
  ?article schema:about ?person . 
  ?article schema:isPartOf <https://en.wikipedia.org/>.
  OPTIONAL {?person wdt:P569 ?DOB }
  OPTIONAL {?person wdt:P570 ?DOD }
  OPTIONAL {?person schema:description ?DESC}
  FILTER(LANG(?DESC) = "en")
}
ORDER BY ?article

The transformations are illustrated in an .ODS file on my personal Microsoft OneDrive >> https://1drv.ms/x/s!AlRFRiLY5w0ehAxPBh0YVZEWGswI?e=dnZuqq (view only). I can abstract the transformation information, but think that building a diagram would be better than a narrative and don't have time to do so at present.

Featured lists marked as List-Class[edit]

I've noticed that there are a number of talk pages - currently 320 - that are in a subcategory of Category:FL-Class articles, indicating that they have been assessed as featured lists, but which contain class=List (rather than class=FL) in their use of the WikiProject Lists template. This results in them being sorted into Category:List-Class List articles, rather than Category:FL-Class List articles.

I'm planning to fix all of these so that the featured lists currently in the former category are sorted into the latter category instead - however, as ((WikiProject Lists)) belongs to Category:WikiProjects using a non-standard quality scale, and given the number of pages involved, I thought I should check in with this project before doing so.

Let me know if you have any queries and/or objections to this idea. All the best, ‍—‍a smart kitten[meow] 00:51, 17 February 2024 (UTC)[reply]

@NmWTfs85lXusaybq: thank you, I appreciate you doing the work, but (by way of explanation) I was planning to wait to see if there was any objection from any members of the WikiProject before taking the action. All the best, ‍—‍a smart kitten[meow] 03:52, 17 February 2024 (UTC)[reply]

These guidelines[edit]

Was this written by a bunch of lawyers? These guidelines are torturous to read and circle around and really don't help. Is there some legit reason they are not written in direct and clear English? 136.36.180.215 (talk) 15:20, 1 March 2024 (UTC)[reply]

I think if you're hoping for the guidelines to be changed it would be helpful to provide examples that illustrate your concerns and suggestions for how they might be improved. In my experience, vague complaints that aren't accompanied by suggestions for improvement tend to be overlooked. Cheers. DonIago (talk) 18:56, 1 March 2024 (UTC)[reply]

How do I cite in a list in columns?[edit]

I want to include some more names on a list of people and put a citation number after their name to confirm they belong on that list of professionals. The list is divided into columns using a column template and so I can't use visual edit to insert the citation number and reference as when I am in Edit, it is tin the template and I can't inset a ref after the name in the template LPascal (talk) 08:39, 25 March 2024 (UTC)[reply]

if another editor wants to work out how to do this for me, the List is List of Christian theologians#20th century and the person is Yolanda Pierce. LPascal (talk) 08:54, 25 March 2024 (UTC)[reply]
Yolanda Pierce already appears on that list. I'm not particularly familiar with the Visual Editor, but if you edit the source it would be as simple as adding the citation immediately following the name. DonIago (talk) 20:09, 25 March 2024 (UTC)[reply]
