Deleting infoboxes content

Note that content should not be deleted from wiki pages (at least for English pages, maybe translators of some languages do differently) - even if it is in data items already. Mateusz Konieczny (talk) 17:54, 9 December 2020 (UTC)

While you are correct about not deleting content from infoboxes, the change I made was for standardization to be up to date on how most pages are set up (including pages in other languages) and to prevent any potential description fragmentation that might occur over time. I made sure that the established wikidata item already had an English description before making the commit. --Mxdanger (talk) 18:40, 9 December 2020 (UTC)
It is technically feasible to completely blank infoboxes and rely on data items, but there is no support for this. I admit that fragmentation is a problem, but it can be automatically detected (see https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Category:Data_item_issues or more specifically https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Category:Mismatched_description ). I am also working right now on tool that would reduce problems due to broken data items (it would produce raports similar to this categories, but in more useful form - at least to me) Mateusz Konieczny (talk) 20:57, 9 December 2020 (UTC)
Oh my bad, I went about fixing it the wrong way and didn't realize matching the infobox description with the wikidata description would remove the double description. --Mxdanger (talk) 01:03, 10 December 2020 (UTC)

New vote on Evaporation ponds

Thanks for voting! There were a few minor issues that were discovered after the vote started, and therefore the vote has been restarted. If you want you can participate in the new vote that was started at Proposed_features/Evaporation_basin. --ZeLonewolf (talk) 23:52, 17 February 2021 (UTC)
