Iker Flores:

Hi everybody!

We're still working our way through this and other forums regarding user feedback, duplicates, typos, etc. Please know that every comment is read and taken into consideration.

The duplicates/typos up until #396 have been reviewed and the corresponding actions have been taken care of. Some might already be fixed in the platform and some others will continue to be updated throughout the year.

We truly appreciate your input and are committed to bring you the best experience possible! 

Thanks so much for your hard work in working through this list.

HJ. van der Wal:

I'm wondering if the following two entries can be merged:

https://ref.ly/logos4/Factbook?ref=bk.%25jussive_Language (Language, Morphology)

https://ref.ly/logos4/Factbook?ref=bk.%25jussive_Language (Language, Syntax)

There is also an separate entry on "Jussive / Cohortative Options":

https://ref.ly/logos4/Factbook?ref=bk.%25jussiveVerbOptions_Language (Language, Morphology)



Makes sense to merge them. Will do.

Thank you HJ!

HJ. van der Wal:

In addition to my previous post I have noticed that most of the Hebrew binyanim (verb stems) have duplicate entries.

FYI The less frequent Hebrew stems and all the Aramaic stems have only one entry each.

398. Qal Stem - merge https://ref.ly/logos4/Factbook?ref=bk.%25qal_Language & https://ref.ly/logos4/Factbook?ref=bk.%25qalStem_Language 

399. Qal Passive Stem - merge https://ref.ly/logos4/Factbook?ref=bk.%25qalPassive_Language & https://ref.ly/logos4/Factbook?ref=bk.%25qalPassiveStem_Language 

400. Nifal Stem - merge https://ref.ly/logos4/Factbook?ref=bk.%25nifal_Language & https://ref.ly/logos4/Factbook?ref=bk.%25nifalStem_Language 

401. Piel Stem - merge https://ref.ly/logos4/Factbook?ref=bk.%25piel_Language & https://ref.ly/logos4/Factbook?ref=bk.%25pielStem_Language 

402. Pual Stem - merge https://ref.ly/logos4/Factbook?ref=bk.%25pual_Language & https://ref.ly/logos4/Factbook?ref=bk.%25pualStem_Language 

403. Hithpael Stem - merge https://ref.ly/logos4/Factbook?ref=bk.%25hitpael_Language & https://ref.ly/logos4/Factbook?ref=bk.%25hithpaelStem_Language 

404. Hifil Stem - merge https://ref.ly/logos4/Factbook?ref=bk.%25hifil_Language & https://ref.ly/logos4/Factbook?ref=bk.%25hifilStem_Language 

405. Hofal Stem - merge https://ref.ly/logos4/Factbook?ref=bk.%25hofal_Language & https://ref.ly/logos4/Factbook?ref=bk.%25hofalStem_Language 




Noted and merged.

Thanks again!

105. https://ref.ly/logos4/Factbook?ref=bio.elizabethanscombe was not a man, although Ludwig Wittgenstein famously treated her like one.

Please merge https://ref.ly/logos4/Factbook?ref=bio.elizabethanscombe & https://ref.ly/logos4/Factbook?ref=bk.%25GertrudeAnscombe_Person

406. For https://ref.ly/logos4/Factbook?ref=bk.%25womb, split off "fetus" (in Also:) as its own article. (A womb is not a fetus.)

407. Split https://ref.ly/logos4/Factbook?ref=bk.%25sacredMarriage in two, creating a new "Sacrament of Marriage" article, and assign that topic to https://ref.ly/logosres/cathency?hw=Sacrament+of+Marriage (The sacrament of marriage is not "sacred marriage".)

https://ref.ly/logos4/Factbook?ref=bk.%25Doukhobors should be a denomination not a concept.

https://ref.ly/logos4/Factbook?ref=bio.ellengwhiteestate is coded as an author ... copyright holder maybe but I think https://ref.ly/logos4/Factbook?ref=bk.%25EllenGouldWhite_Person is the author.

Sean Boisen:

MJ. Smith:

Andrew Batishko (Faithlife):
I recommend using the Copy Location as URL option from the Factbook panel menu.

Sorry but I can't resist. I suggest that the Respond section be added to Factbook pages so that one can report the problem where you find it and the URL is handled automatically.  But I am too old and too polite to say "I told you so ..."Devil

We've had a lot of discussion about how to best capture user feedback, but this didn't make it in time for launch. I expect you'll see an improvement here in the near future. 

Well, I still share MJ's thought that the feedback section directly in Factbook was a great tool (well, for reporting things, obviously it's a "Fire and Forget" type of feature, like reporting typos, with no loopback. Forum threads might be better for that, but this will be a hurdle most users won't jump over, so not having the direct feedback section will keep issues underreported.)

By chance I saw today that

are the same and should be merged.

Couldn't an intern in one of your Hack-a-tons write a script that runs through all of Factbook and with some intelligent algorithm ranks possible duplicates for a prioritized "to be checked with EYEBALL-tool"-list? Five entries for John Smith, if there are, are possibly legit (well, maybe a portion of them, and the algorithm may look at works authored or other relevant info), but how many Lutheran church historians named John/Johann L. Mosheim would we expect?

I can vouch that I have seen errors and not bothered to report them because posting in the forums is too large a disruption to my workflow/thought process at the time. I do remember seeing a Southern Baptist tagged as Catholic recently and ignoring it ... but I have no idea who it was.

NB.Mick:

Thanks for pointing these out: we continue working to eliminate duplicates, though the volume of names makes that challenging.

408. Pius Melia (Italian theologian) - merge https://ref.ly/logos4/Factbook?ref=bk.%25PiusMelia_Person & https://ref.ly/logos4/Factbook?ref=bio.piusmelia

409. Pius Ojara - merge https://ref.ly/logos4/Factbook?ref=bio.piussjojara_1 and https://ref.ly/logos4/Factbook?ref=bio.piussjojara_1

410. Jean Daniélou (Jesuit Theologian) - merge https://ref.ly/logos4/Factbook?ref=bk.%25JeanDanielou_Person & https://ref.ly/logos4/Factbook?ref=bio.jeandanielou_1 & https://ref.ly/logos4/Factbook?ref=bio.jeansjdanielou_1

411. The title "Rev" appears in front of or stranded within the names of over three dozen entries, which should all be fixed. Some of them have surplus post-nominals in them, too.

412. Split https://ref.ly/logos4/Factbook?ref=bk.%25JohnIreland_Person which conflates John Ireland, Anglican Dean of Westminster (1761-1842), with John Ireland, Catholic Archbishop of St. Paul, Minnesota (1838-1918).

413. Pope Francis - merge https://ref.ly/logos4/Factbook?ref=bio.papafrancisco_1 & https://ref.ly/logos4/Factbook?ref=bk.%25PopeFrancis_Person 

414. Pope Benedict XVI - merge https://ref.ly/logos4/Factbook?ref=bio.benedictoxvi_1 & https://ref.ly/logos4/Factbook?ref=bk.%25PopeBenedictXVI_Person

PS: Polite reminder about:

SineNomine:
5. There are a lots of entries with "SJ" as a middle name; they're all wrong. Those are all Jesuits, and SJ is their postnominal. This also occurs with other religious orders/congregations, with postnominals that include "OP" and "OFM", as well as "CP" & "CSB" & "OFS" (one each). Note that sometimes the postnominals in Factbook are "Op" or "Ofs", etc.

I see that "SJ" in particular still has a lot of bad entries. In addition to all of the postnominals given in 5. (other than "CP"), you also need to fix CSJ and CSC.

The duplicates/typos up until #396 have been reviewed and the corresponding actions have been taken care of. Some might already be fixed in the platform and some others will continue to be updated throughout the year.

At what point will we be able to be certain that if a particular fix from that list hasn't been made in the Factbook as we see it, it has been missed/omitted/disagreed with? For example, if they still haven't been fixed, when will I know that Faithlife isn't going to fix 2. or 106.?

We've been making some changes in our practices to enable speedier resolution of these merges (and your continued input has been very helpful). While we haven't yet addressed all the issues, we've addressed quite a few, and as far as I know we haven't yet rejected any merges for duplicate people. I'm optimistic that in a month or so all the reported changes will have been addressed and shipped (but that's not a commitment).

416 Karaites are not a concept - they are a sect of Judaism (not to mention that I can't find Beta Israel - another important sect) logos4:Factbook;ref=bk.$25Karaites

"concept" in the Factbook display simply means this is the subject of a dictionary article (or similar content). We're not (yet) modeling this as a group of people, though clearly that's what the concept refers to. 

We haven't yet done LCV alignment on the Encyclopedia of Judaism, which seems to be the primary resource in my current library that mentions Beta Israel (under Judaism in Ethiopia). That resource describes quite a few concepts that aren't yet covered by Factbook.
