Why not ask your question on the new OpenStreetMap Community Forum?

Hi, there are an example of syntax error at https://www.openstreetmap.org/node/261615248 where a the Wikidata-ID is "Q10366821)" instead "Q10366821"... There are a robot or similar thing correcting input bugs?

Recent tests inputing Wikidata with iD are showing that the reported bug was fixed. About other tools, see Wiki/Talk:Key:wikidata. About "reliable central control"... No answer: seems there are no "central validation", all are doing by the edit-tools.

We don't have many bots in OSM and we prefer to keep bad data from getting into OSM rather than writing bots to fix it ;) the edit you are referring to has been made with the ID editor. It would be good to open an issue at https://github.com/openstreetmap/iD and recommend adding a check to the editor.

Thanks Frederik, I am posting an alert at iD/issues... But iD is only one of many ways to edit, there are so many editors (to do wrong thing)... There are no "obligation API" to intermediate/validate final edits?

@ppKrauss there is no validation API, and wrt using wiki talk pages, see: https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Welcome_to_Wikipedia_users
