Welcome to Wikidata, Adam Harangozó!

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, please ask me on my talk page. 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.

You recently added http://orcid.org/0000-0001-7757-7156 to both Sándor Csányi (Q375541) and Sándor Csányi (Q875361). It is really important that you do not add ORCID values (or other identifiers) based solely on a person's name - you must verify the identity another way.

Thank you, that was a mistake probably, I always verify before adding! Adam
OK, thanks. Thanks also for your interest in ORCID. Are you active on hu.Wikipedia? You can use {{Nemzetközi katalógusok}} on articles (and your user page - see mine there). We also need someone to translate hu:ORCID from en:ORCID. Andy Mabbett (Pigsonthewing); Talk to Andy; Andy's edits 22:49, 30 July 2015 (UTC)
I'll try to translate the site when I have a bit of time, hopefully soon. Thanks for the info!

Szia, Te írtad be Marjánné Rinyu Ilona születési idejét. Mi a forrásod erre? --Rlevente (talk) 06:28, 6 October 2015 (UTC)

Szia, szerintem Wikidata Game-mel szerkesztettem, és a wiki lap egy régebbi verziójából vette a születési dátumot, ami azóta módosítva lett. --Adam Harangozó (talk) 06:57, 6 October 2015 (UTC)

GTAA on WikidataEdit

You receive this message because you previously matched persons from the GTAA (the Thesaurus for Audiovisual Archives) with items on Wikidata. We would like to inform you about some improvements that we have made to that catalogue on Mix’n’Match. We have improved the automatic links and added additional information from our catalogue (what we’ve called ‘extracted terms’) to the terms. We hope that this makes matching the thesaurus with Wikidata that much more fun and easier. Read more about this project here or in Dutch WikiProject Dutch Media History nl here. Best! 85jesse (talk) 08:06, 18 July 2018 (UTC)

Mix'n'Match scrapersEdit

Making scrapers doesn't really require coding, mostly knowing regular expressions and some HTML, and if the web pages being suitable for scraping. (Actually, I guess that's kind of like coding. :) If you want to learn more about regular expressions, https://regexone.com/ might be helpful. Trivialist (talk) 22:34, 5 November 2018 (UTC)

Forgot to mention: You don't necessarily need to create a scraper. You can upload tab-delimited text here and create a catalog. Trivialist (talk) 23:38, 6 November 2018 (UTC)

Austrian Biographical EncylopediaEdit

Hi Adam. Have you tried with the See example when creating a new catalog? This can help you. The 2 examples that you propose are difficult for me to scrap. --Gerwoman (talk) 18:20, 28 November 2018 (UTC)

For the Austrian Biographical Encylopedia you can try this:

  • Level 1: A..Z
  • Level 2: 1..43
  • URL pattern: https://www.biographien.ac.at/oebl/oebl_$1_$2
  • regex entry: <p> <a href = /oebl/oebl_(.+?).xml>(.+?)</a> <span style="color:blue;">(.+?)</span> </p>
  • id: $1
  • name: $2
    • regular expression replacement: ^(.+?), (.+)$ => $2 $1
  • description: $3
  • URL: https://www.biographien.ac.at/oebl/oebl_$1.xml

Let me know if you need some explanation. --Gerwoman (talk) 18:32, 28 November 2018 (UTC)

Merging itemsEdit

Hallo Adam Harangozó,
When you (want to) merge items, you may want to use the merge.js gadget from help page about merging. It helps with merging and removes the need to file a request on Wikidata:Requests for deletions.

A lot to fixEdit

Hi Adam, your mass creation of items caused a lot of constraint violations. Please fix them. --Succu (talk) 19:31, 27 April 2019 (UTC)

Hey, thanks, will work on it! --Adam Harangozó (talk) 11:38, 28 April 2019 (UTC)
Hopefully sooner than later. --Succu (talk) 19:26, 6 May 2019 (UTC)

Bob Tisdall (Q708625)Edit

Hello, I had to undo your edit. VIAF 95153840 conflates two persons: Bob Tisdall (Q708625) and Leslie T. Morton (Q66605772) --Emu (talk) 17:18, 22 August 2019 (UTC)

New page for Mix N Match cataloguesEdit

Thanks for letting me know about this! Looking forward to getting Prop 65 chems on there when (if) the property proposal for Prop 65 chemicals gets approved. Gtsulab (talk) 15:17, 1 November 2019 (UTC)

I was hoping to add RxNorm as catalog but I simply have a CSV file. There is no need to scrape. I was not able to figure out how to add it. Any advice is appreciatedEncycloABC (talk) 16:49, 18 December 2019 (UTC)
Others probably know better but perhaps you could paste the contents of the file here: [1] Adam Harangozó (talk) 19:00, 31 December 2019 (UTC)
