Welcome to Wikidata, Шкурба Андрій Вікторович!

Wikidata is a free knowledge base that you can edit! It can be read and edited by humans and machines alike and you can go to any item page now and add to this ever-growing database!

Need some help getting started? Here are some pages you can familiarize yourself with:

  • Introduction – An introduction to the project.
  • Wikidata tours – Interactive tutorials to show you how Wikidata works.
  • Community portal – The portal for community members.
  • User options – including the 'Babel' extension, to set your language preferences.
  • Contents – The main help page for editing and using the site.
  • Project chat – Discussions about the project.
  • Tools – A collection of user-developed tools to allow for easier completion of some tasks.

Please remember to sign your messages on talk pages by typing four tildes (~~~~); this will automatically insert your username and the date.

If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask on Project chat. If you want to try out editing, you can use the sandbox to try. Once again, welcome, and I hope you quickly feel comfortable here, and become an active editor for Wikidata.

Я нічого не зрозумів, поясніть мені нерозумному - чому тоді в статті uk:Натуральна віспа хвороба іменується з маленької літери? Infovarius (talk) 14:45, 20 January 2017 (UTC)

Я прошу вибачення за неприйнятний мій тон у звертанні до вас раніше. Я мав на увазі, що назви сторінки пишуть з великої букви. Мені здалося, що ви знесли вставлену мною назву через нерозуміння літер назви. Ще раз даруйте. "Натуральна віспа" пишеться з великої у назві сторінки та на початку речення. Звичайно, що в середині речення пишеться з малої літери. Тому я і повернув версію у Wikidata, тому що label - це як початок речення, а отже має бути з великої літери. З повагою, --Шкурба Андрій Вікторович (talk) 18:09, 20 January 2017 (UTC)
Я прошу прощения за мой неприемлемый тон в обращении к вам ранее. Я имел в виду, что названия страниц пишут с большой буквы. Мне привиделось, что вы снесли вставленное мною название из-за непонимания букв в ней. Еще раз извините. "Натуральная оспа" пишется с большой буквы в названии страницы и в начале предложения. Понятно, что в середине предложения пишется с маленькой буквы. Поэтому я и вернул версию в Wikidata, потому что label - это как начало предложения, а значит должно быть с большой буквы. --Шкурба Андрій Вікторович (talk) 18:09, 20 January 2017 (UTC)
Извинения приняты. Но откуда вы взяли, что label - это начало предложения. Вообще-то как раз наоборот, например для английского языка: Labels begin with a lowercase letter except for when uppercase is normally required or expected. Для русского также принято, что нарицательные имеют метки с маленькой буквы. Может, вы знаете какое-то особое правило для украинских меток? --Infovarius (talk) 17:48, 25 January 2017 (UTC)
Причем здесь украинские? Посмотрит, очень много label написаны с большой буквы, поэтому и я так сделал. А если уж вы считали себя правым, то не обижая меня, следовало просто изменить текст, а не откидывать мою правку. По крайней мере в укр. Вики это является правилом хорошего тона. Давайте работать, кроме Wikidata у меня много дел в укр. Вики. Новых свершений вам! --Шкурба Андрій Вікторович (talk) 19:24, 25 January 2017 (UTC)


Thanks for helping fighting vandalism! To make the work easier, you might want to apply for the rollback right. Danmichaelo (talk) 21:32, 16 February 2017 (UTC)

Thank you. --Шкурба Андрій Вікторович (talk) 18:43, 17 February 2017 (UTC)

UNESCO site boxEdit

Hi, the UNESCO site in Venice is located in present day Italy there's no need to add historic states... most of the others sites in italy don't show all previous states. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Venice -- 02:19, 7 June 2017 (UTC)

Hi. You have taken down a part of relevant information from the "Venice". I responded to it. As you consider themselves right, please contact Rluts, Jared Preston, JMC, Infovarius or any other experienced users. If they decide that you are right, and I'm wrong, then restore your edit or them renew. --Шкурба Андрій Вікторович (talk) 19:32, 7 June 2017 (UTC)


Hi! Regarding this: population of around 100 thousand is indeed quite a lot, but still it doesn't say anywhere that it's too much for a town. Important notion here is that there is no distinction between city and town in Estonia (see en:Town#Estonia) and so there isn't good reason to draw a line between these at some random population number. Other countries or regions may have conventions to make a distinction and then items can be categorized accordingly.

Linn (usually translated as town or city) is an official settlement type for which popluation varies greatly. Whether we tie instances of this type of settlement with town item or city item or country specific settlement type item, we should be consistent. Currently Tartu is the only linn which isn't an instance of town (see Wikidata:Database reports/Constraint violations/P1140#Types statistics) 20:02, 23 January 2018 (UTC)

Hi! I was not convinced by your arguments. Do not make any world exception from the cities of Estonia. There was also an reference from the English Wiki. But there are many users with administrative functions (as Jared Preston, JMC, Infovarius and others), contact them, if I'm wrong, they will make your changes. --Шкурба Андрій Вікторович (talk) 21:09, 23 January 2018 (UTC)
Making a "world exception" here presumes that there is universial criterion to determine cities all over the world. What is this criterion and what's your source for this? Also what's your justification to use different classification for items that are designated as the same type of settlement?
I don't think that it's needed for administrators to intervene here. It's a simple content issue. 08:07, 24 January 2018 (UTC)

Tarja HalonenEdit

Why did you revert my correction? Tarja Halonen has never been any kind of diplomat. Please do not interfere if you don't have any knowledge or sources about the matter. - 11:08, 12 January 2019 (UTC)

Sorry. There were many anonimus cases of vandalism on that day in Wikidata. --Шкурба Андрій Вікторович (talk) 18:00, 12 January 2019 (UTC)

MeSH ID, P486Edit

Hello. The MeSH descriptor ID (P486) should only be added to items about the precise topic. The page for the property lists the constraints (single value constraint and distinct value constraint). Therefore the value D012514 for P486 should appear on Kaposi's sarcoma (Q725345) and nowhere else. If you go to that item now, you will see a black symbol for the P486 statement, pointing out that there is a problem. Charles Matthews (talk) 12:53, 18 September 2020 (UTC)

Hello. Thank you for your clarification. Understood my awkwardness. Please discard my incorrect editing. --Шкурба Андрій Вікторович (talk) 13:24, 18 September 2020 (UTC)
