What does “DBPedia is claiming to be linked to MB” mean in their language?
I assume they are just saying they take some data from here - like so many other database also do.
At least with Wikidata you get to see all the links they are making in one place. They let you go back and forth between the different sources. Actually CREDITING the source. They seem like a better start point for a single focus
MB wants to actively CHECK the sources and everything is available for anyone to do that.
I’ve never heard of DBPedia before. Looks too much like a database sucking program that just links to other people’s work. A quick look at that ABBA link shows they have just hoovered up the Wikipedia page, and then broke the formatting.
Again no simple link back to where the data came from. Just a tiny credit at the bottom of the page.
Can’t see anything MB on that page.
IMHO this is just one of those projects who suck other people’s data in and then make their own name \ cash from it. I’ve seen some very bizarre databases like that. The lack of quality control stands out.
Here at MB there are HUMANS checking and correcting the data. REAL PEOPLE!! People who actually enjoy the subject matter.
I’m no database expert. I’m here for the music. There are proper SQL people around the dark corners of the server. They will give you a more database based answer. Especially the *Brainz project people.
