#Wikidata - Places in #Iran

Bon Chenar is the first entry on a list prepared by Amir. The list is about places in Iran where there is an article on the English Wikipedia and an article on the Persian Wikipedia. Obviously it needs to be merged. There are thousands and thousands of places in Iran .. all with double entries in Wikidata and all in need of merging.

Amir produces reports, Magnus made a game out of it but in the end it needs people to mark all of these places as being the same or not. People who know English and Persian..

When these items are merged, the statements are combined. It is the best of times to curate the statements that have been made. However, when do you start improving things when it is so obvious that it will need to be done again and again?
