Welcome to Wikidata, Adithyak1997!

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.

Best regards!

RE:Wrong date enteredEdit

Hi, dices que los datos que publica la WHO no son muy confiables/precisos pero casualmente son los mismos que publica la PIB. Entonces no es muy entendible esa postura. Y la WHO los publica con datos de cada autoridad del dia anterior recibidos hasta las 10am del mismo dia.Claudieg (talk) 14:42, 29 April 2020 (UTC)

Indian scientists datathonEdit

Hi Adithyak1997,

You are receiving this message as you are one of the participants of WikiProject India on Wikidata and/or a subscriber of the Wikidata India newsletter.

Hope you and your loved ones are safe and sound during this ongoing COVID-19 pandemic situation.

This is for your kind information that, from 22nd May, 2020 Friday to 24th May, 2020 Sunday, a datathon will be happening on Indian scientists on Wikidata. The lack of data about Indian scientists, their works and publications on Wikidata is the reason behind conducting the datathon. Considering the ongoing pandemic, the datathon will also focus on scientists working on SARS-CoV-2 and COVID-19.

The tasklist of the datathon is flexible. Participants can choose their own preferred task on this topic

Hoping for your active participation.

Take care and stay safe,

Bodhisattwa (CIS-A2K)

Duplicate Script tool to create bulletinsEdit

Hi, I recieved your email regarding using Duplicate script tool to create bulletins. Thanks for the suggestion, I didn't have any knowledge about it as I am new to the Wikidata. I will try it out and see how it works. - Mayankj429 (talk) 19:10, 18 May 2020 (UTC)

Hi, I have seen the script tool in excel sheet which says Copy the Script below to your commons page, could you help me where should I copy it as I can't figure it out. Thanks - Mayankj429 (talk) 05:35, 19 May 2020 (UTC)
Goto Preferences -> Appearance. In that click on Custom JavaScript which is present under the heading Shared CSS/JSON/JavaScript for all skins:. Adithyak1997 (talk) 05:47, 19 May 2020 (UTC)
Thank you for the help, this tool is really helpfull. - Mayankj429 (talk) 13:56, 19 May 2020 (UTC)
@Mayankj429: There are two suggestions which i request you to follow: 1)Please create items only for those dates in which the bulletins are created, ie. I have seen an item dated for 20 May related to Haryana. If it's accidentally created, that's ok. Otherwise, the only problem that will occur is that others may create new items without knowing that you have created one. 2)You might be knowing this already, anyway, for the items created by you using the duplicate script, you will have to add descriptions for each of the new item you create. All statements except description will be there in the new item. So, please copy descriptions from the source item from which you created the duplicate one. Adithyak1997 (talk) 14:26, 19 May 2020 (UTC)
That was the first item i created using the tool and accidently got 2 duplicates as in the first click on Duplicate this Item pop up was blocked on my browser and i clicked again, so second item was created unknowingly, I will be carefull next time. I searched for 18 May bulletin for haryana which i couldn't find on nhmharyana.gov.in otherwise it could have been used for 18 May, so i named it for 20 May. - Mayankj429 (talk) 14:43, 19 May 2020 (UTC)
No problem. I have added May 18 bulletin. Just check this page. It lists all the bulletins of Haryana created till date. When checking the column 'full work available at', you will be able to understand that the url has 3 to 4 formats. So, changing the url to one of them work sometimes. It's again just a suggestion to check all methods to find the needed bulletin. Adithyak1997 (talk) 14:51, 19 May 2020 (UTC)

Regarding QuickStatementsEdit

Hi I was learning to add values through QuickStatements, if you have command sequence syntax for the states than kindly share them to me. Thanks - Mayankj429 (talk) 05:35, 1 June 2020 (UTC)

Actually, I didn't understand what you mean by 'command sequence syntax'. Anyway, I will list the steps. First, you need to create an Excel sheet similar to this. Then, you need to reform the data in the Excel sheet into a structured item. For this, you need to use a tool called OpenRefine (I use this). The details about the tool can be found here.
Steps to transform into a structured data:
1)Download, install and then open OpenRefine.
2)Select Clipboard option and copy the data in the excel sheet into the Clipboard. Press Start.
3)Just press Start in the next menu. Then, match the data in Excel sheet with those in Wikidata (If you didn't get it, you can ping me).
4)Create a schema similar to the one shared in the Info sheet in Covid-19 taskforce excel sheet.
5)Now, 2 options are available. Either Upload edits to Wikidata or Export to QuickStatements. I think it's better to use 'Upload edits to Wikidata'. Add a summary and it's finished. Adithyak1997 (talk) 05:48, 1 June 2020 (UTC)
Thanks, I will look into it. Mayankj429 (talk) 14:23, 1 June 2020 (UTC)
Hi @Adithyak1997: , I installed the OpenRefine yesterday but the Info sheet in Covid-19 taskforce excel sheet in Zip format regarding schema seems to be corrupted, if you have any other than do shsre with me. Thanks - Mayankj429 (talk) 05:34, 2 June 2020 (UTC)
@Mayankj429: Just check this one. It's a sheet containing some examples. Adithyak1997 (talk) 05:41, 2 June 2020 (UTC)

EthanolEdit

I think you don't understand what subclass of (P279) is. hydroxyl (Q104116) subclass of (P279) ethanol (Q153) and ethyl group (Q1371525) subclass of (P279) ethanol (Q153) are clearly wrong as functional groups are not subclasses of chemical compounds; chemical compounds consist of functional groups, proper statements are present in ethanol (Q153). Both edits are now reverted. Wostr (talk) 20:33, 16 June 2020 (UTC)

@Wostr: Sorry for the problem caused. Please do check this section. I made such an edit due to its listing in this section. Adithyak1997 (talk) 05:12, 17 June 2020 (UTC)
This should be done (if at all) by changing has parts of the class (P2670) to has part (P527). 'If at all' because the proper classification (instance of (P31)/subclass of (P279)) of chemical entities is still under discussion. Wostr (talk) 08:56, 17 June 2020 (UTC) BTW This page does not indicate that B should be a subclass of A (i.e. with 'ethanol (Q153): hydroxyl (Q104116)' it does not indicate that hydroxyl (Q104116) subclass of (P279) ethanol (Q153)); it indicates that B should probably have a statement with subclass of (P279) (in many cases it's a problem whether it should have B instance of (P31) Qxxx or B subclass of (P279) Qxxx, not B subclass of (P279) A). Wostr (talk) 09:02, 17 June 2020 (UTC)

RE: Addition of empty itemEdit

Hi, this is obviously a quickstatements error. I was uploading items for the Bibliotehecae.it acedemic journal.--RemoRivelli (talk) 17:30, 27 June 2020 (UTC)

Ok. Thanks for replying. Adithyak1997 (talk) 17:32, 27 June 2020 (UTC)
