[Wikimedia-l] Fw: Wikidata now officially has more total edits than English language Wikipedia

Alessandro Marchetti via Wikimedia-l

I found a 404 on 5000 Q pages, because the data base was turned off,
 
it should have been fixed, but all they did was to deprecate the entry.
 
I contacted the 2 main creators, editors. the one told me not to talk to
her on
 
her page, or she would have me blocked and to put it on the wikidata
discussion
 
page which she did not go to to answer me, the other one contacted a bot
owner who
 
changed all the URL’s to the wayback URL.but when wayback took down some of
the
 
last entry's, and i tried to talk to that bot direct he refused to talk to
me.
 
this all makes me feel like a whistle-blower.

But...
bots are operated, written, and reviewed by real humans ? Like if I
spend 2
hours adding "painting by Vincent van Gogh" manually on every
relevant item
by hand, how is that more valuable than spending 20 minutes
to write a bot
that does that for me (and can be used for similar tasks)
?
