    Moved media legend (P2096)Edit

    I moved media legend (P2096) to commons:File:Douglas_adams_portrait_cropped.jpg  – The preceding unsigned comment was added by U+1F360 (talk • contribs) at 05:42, 6 February 2019 (UTC).


    So how did the number "42" get associated with Douglas Adams on Wikidata? Luck, or did it involve some careful planning? Or will the universe end & be replaced with something even less comprehensible if someone reveals the answer? -- Llywrch (talk) 08:39, 5 January 2020 (UTC)

    Early planning, just as "Q1" for the Universe, "Q2" for Earth and "Q13" for fear of the number 13. ToBeFree (talk) 21:26, 2 April 2020 (UTC)
    @ToBeFree, so why is this? WikiMacaroons (talk) 10:04, 29 May 2020 (UTC)
    Hi WikiMacaroons, I'm not sure how the question refers to the previous messages, or why any explanation from my side on this Wikidata talk page is needed. Please see the English Wikipedia's deletion policy if something is unclear about it, and feel free to ask at the English Wikipedia's Teahouse or similar pages if questions remain. Best regards, ToBeFree (talk) 12:13, 29 May 2020 (UTC)
    Oh, whoops, ToBeFree, you're right. I'm not sure why I left it under this heading. Thanks, WikiMacaroons (talk) 14:39, 29 May 2020 (UTC)
