Kasparbot questionEdit

I really don't understand this bot, but is your bot necessary to migrate data to Wikidata? I've just built (for me) a complicated infobox at Zhang Mao. Will that data migrate automatically to Wikidata or is there some action that I should take? I hope you don't mind teaching me. Thank you. - Trilotat (talk) 14:30, 6 October 2018 (UTC)

@Trilotat: (talk page stalker) This user is no longer active on this Wikipedia (last edit was last year). Also, the bot was blocked over a year ago. Dreamy Jazz 🎷 talk to me | my contributions 21:58, 20 October 2018 (UTC)
@Dreamy Jazz: Thanks. I think I've figured out some of the data migration. Thanks. -Trilotat (talk) 22:14, 20 October 2018 (UTC)

William Volker ArticleEdit

Hi. What is your bot designed to do? It deleted an infobox on the William Volker article (Revision as of 22:57, April 4, 2016) that has no apparent reason for its deletion. Was there any foundation for its deletion, or this just a Bot gone wild? Regards... Stevenmitchell (talk) 16:01, 20 January 2019 (UTC)

@Stevenmitchell: It removed the deprecated WP:persondata. --Izno (talk) 22:51, 20 January 2019 (UTC)
Was there an actual reason for its deprecation or was it accidental? Stevenmitchell (talk) 19:29, 22 January 2019 (UTC)
@Stevenmitchell: Did you review WP:Persondata? --Izno (talk) 20:52, 22 January 2019 (UTC)
(talk)Hi, Izno... Do you know what we would use in its place for an Infobox, since it has been deprecated? Stevenmitchell (talk) 19:07, 26 January 2019 (UTC)
@Stevenmitchell: You can try using {{infobox person}}? --Izno (talk) 19:52, 26 January 2019 (UTC)

Kasparbot useful for moving authority dataEdit

Hi! Many thanks for the work you have done on Catalan Wikipedia, moving manually inserted authority data to their respective objects on Wikidata. This has helped me a lot, and useful in complementing my administrative work with authority data on cawp. Lately though, it seems your activity has stopped, both on cawp and on svwp. It would be great if you could restart your work here, moving info from these articles in the same manner. I like being a Wikipedian and tries to mostly being active on Wikipedia (Catalan and Swedish), reserving my time on Wikidata to when it's most needed (still, a couple of thousand edits). I think it's fun and easy to add link info into the authority data templates via the respective pages on VIAF, and goes fast. Having to do it manually on Wikidata would take me more time and feel a lot less productive.

What do you think? I've heard of some issues with the other work with your bot, but with moving authority data on svwp and cawp I haven't notices any bad effects as of yet. Maybe @ReginaManresa: also would appreciate this renewed work? Many thanks in advance.  Paracel63 (talk) 11:06, 20 March 2019 (UTC)

Hi! I must tell you I am not at all knowledgeable about technical issues, but since I spend quite a time doing menial work (not that it bothers me), I really do think it is a great idea to have it done by a bot. Thank you all ReginaManresa (talk) 06:13, 21 March 2019 (UTC)
@ReginaManresa and Paracel63: thank you for your kind words. Unfortunately, I won't be able to continue running KasparBot. As you noticed, I have been absent for quite some time and busy with other things. This resulted in poor maintenance and the bot's deactivation on the English Wikipedia. Despite that I started again to make some minor edits in the last weeks, I'm not willing to set up the bot again as I don't feel up-to-date anymore and reestablishing it would be very labour-consuming. Feel free to look at the code [1] and use it (or convince someone to use it) to further move VIAF data to Wikidata. Best wishes, -- T.seppelt (talk) 07:08, 25 March 2019 (UTC)
Just a note that I found Kasparbot extremely useful and appreciate the work you put into it :) ! – SJ + 16:40, 14 July 2019 (UTC)
I also found the bot very useful. Maybe someone with much more technical skill than me can post it to the correct page to see if someone else will adopt it? Pinging Tagishsimon SusunW (talk) 20:45, 14 July 2019 (UTC)

Template:Kartographer Location mapEdit

Is this template still used? It's showing up in Category:Pages with broken graphs. davidwr/(talk)/(contribs) 22:25, 10 February 2020 (UTC)
