I've been active on Wikipedia since 2005. I've been a Wikignome on several GLAM collaboration projects.

  • " where we have a Wikidata item for a category, and one for the subject of the category, current working consensus is that the category item here should have the sitelink to the Commons category; both items here should have Commons category (P373) set; and the two items should be interlinked via category's main topic (P301) / topic's main category (P910). The latter allows the Wikidata infobox on the Commons category to find and include information from the subject item, even though it is the category item that it is sitelinked to." (17 Jan 2019)
  • "In April, we announced a new level of constraint, "suggestion", based on community request. The change is now deployed. You can now add suggestion constraint (Q62026391) as constraint status (P2316) on constraint statements. The notification icon will be a flag, unless a mandatory or ordinary constraint is already listed, in that case its icon will appear."
  • Dates across century boundaries: enter like "1300 - precision - millenium", rather than just "2nd millennium" directly, to give it a chance of sorting more-or-less correctly in queries.
