Logo of Wikidata

Welcome to Wikidata, -- -- --!

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.

Merge edit

Hi, a piece of advice to make your editing easier in future: For how to join two items into one, see Help:Merge – there is a gadget that makes it easier, and you can switch it on here, Special:Preferences#mw-prefsection-gadgets. Best, Littledogboy (talk) 16:39, 3 September 2013 (UTC)Reply

I've seen some of the talk pages of the pages that you're requesting merges for; do you know if there is even an item for 1811 deaths (or the others)? I can't seem to find them with the search feature. Ajraddatz (Talk) 19:31, 3 September 2013 (UTC)Reply
  • Littledogboy: I was having problems trying to merge 2 items while using a mobile phone. I therefore posted requests on the respective items' talk-pages, rather than just wait until I'll be able to do the merge myself. Thanks anyway. -- -- -- 23:24, 3 September 2013 (UTC)Reply
  • Ajraddatz: I see that you eventually found the items on Categories 1811 & 1859 deaths and successfully merged them & deleted the obsolete items. I do check if there is an item for something before requesting that it be merged. Thanks a lot. -- -- -- 23:24, 3 September 2013 (UTC)Reply

Merging items edit

Hallo -- -- --,

For merging items, you may want to use the merge.js gadget from help page about merging. It has an option "Request deletion for extra items on RfD" to automatically place a request to delete the emptied page. This way of nominating makes it a lot easier for the admins to process the requests.

With regards,

OK. I got it. -- -- -- 22:04, 8 July 2014 (UTC)Reply
P.S. For some reason, the computer doesn't always offer me that option, even though I did save it in my Preferences. In those cases, I will provide a link to the other page in the Edit summary, for your convenience. -- -- -- 22:38, 31 July 2014 (UTC)Reply

Babel edit

Babel lets you view and edit more than one language on Wikidata. Just add e.g. {{#babel:de-N|en-3|sk-1|fr-2|cs-3|it-4|da-0}} to your user page. Best, Littledogboy (talk) 16:40, 3 September 2013 (UTC)Reply

  Done. -- -- -- 23:44, 3 September 2013 (UTC)Reply

Requesting items for deletion edit

Hi! When you request items for deletion, could you please send them to WD:RfD using the DeletionRequest gadget? In my opinion, the RfD page is faster and easier than the {{Delete}} template. Thanks, The Anonymouse (talk) 07:16, 24 December 2013 (UTC)Reply

OK. -- -- -- 18:48, 24 December 2013 (UTC)Reply

Re: Welcome and question edit

Hi!, and thanks for the welcome. Regarding your question, i've double chequed the request that merged the items Living in the Material World (song)@en.wikipedia with Living in the Material World (canción)@es.wikipedia and yes, they are about the same topic!. That's what you asked me?. (im a newbie here but old in es.wikipedia). Regards!--Zeroth (talk) 13:07, 13 August 2014 (UTC)Reply

Hi, Zeroth! the unneeded item was deleted by User:Cycn (14:20, 21 August). -- -- -- 09:54, 29 August 2014 (UTC)Reply

family names and disambiguation pages edit

Hi! I'm not sure what you are trying to do, but disambiguation pages and family names are two different things that should be kept separated on Wikidata. If a sitelink is on the wrong item, the sitelink should be moved, not the properties changed. Thank you. --Harmonia Amanda (talk) 20:45, 8 November 2018 (UTC)Reply

OK. I understand. Thank you. -- -- -- 20:46, 8 November 2018 (UTC)Reply

מנדי וויס edit

ערב טוב! ראיתי שבטלת את עריכתי בדף מנדי וויס, אבל לא הצלחתי להבין מה בדיוק בטלת, תוכל להאיר את עיני? המאו"ר (talk) 18:48, 21 May 2022 (UTC)Reply

עברית: כתבת Mandy שהוא תעתיק של מאנדי בפת"ח תחת המ"ם בעוד ששמו האמיתי הוא מענדי (Mendy) בסגו"ל תחת המ"ם. איני יודע איך לשנות את השם הפרטי מ-Mandy ל-Mendy. לכן בטלתי את עריכתך כדי שהשם הפרטי יהיה ריק, כי מוטב שיישאר ריק משיופיע שם שגוי. אם אתה יודע איך להוסיף את השם הפרטי Mendy (כדרך שעשית כשהוספת את השם השגוי Mandy), תוכל בבקשה להוסיפו. בברכה,
