Welcome to Wikidata, Ambrosia10!

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.

Not applicable to WikidataEdit

Hoi, what made you decide that people are not applicable to Wikidata in Mix n' match? We can and should include imho entries for all of them because all of the people in there should be included including the works in the BHL.. What do you think? Thanks, GerardM (talk) 12:52, 21 November 2017 (UTC)

Hi GerardM, feel free to revert any that I've classed as "not applicable" if you think they are notable for Wikidata purposes. Most I classed as "not applicable" were folk I had difficulty in finding other identifiers for or only wrote one article that to me appeared not notable.

I am preparing the import of the publications themselves and, I am not aware about the relative merits of the authors.. But it does make sense to have them all.. PS thank you for the good work :) Thanks, GerardM (talk) 09:09, 22 November 2017 (UTC)

Wikidata:WikiProject New Zealand/ParticipantsEdit

Hello. Maybe you'd like to add your name to this list – without the signature – so that I'm not left alone there? You'll be pinged every time someone uses the template during a discussion about New Zealand. Thierry Caro (talk) 23:04, 13 August 2018 (UTC)

Thanks for the heads up. Have added myself to the list. --Ambrosia10 (talk) 06:04, 14 August 2018 (UTC)


The place of death you entered was the house not the place (town/village). In a source I found [1] "Lewes Castle, Stornoway, Isle of Lewis, Scotland", Q386703 Lewes Castle used by you is "a medieval castle in the town of Lewes in East Sussex, England". It is fixed but if you used a bot it may be others that have simular issues. Maundwiki (talk) 13:09, 15 May 2019 (UTC)

@Maundwiki: Thanks for letting me know. I was editing manually, not with a bot, so hopefully this will be the only error made. I had assumed the place of death could be as specific as the house/castle where the person died. I was thinking of specific SPARQL queries such as "names of people who died at Lewes Castle". However if you believe that this is modelled incorrectly, with the addition of Lewes Castle as the place of death, I am very happy to be corrected.-Ambrosia10 (talk) 17:44, 15 May 2019 (UTC)
Q386703 was in Englanmd not Scottland, if you have a correct castle/house I have no problem with that. Maundwiki (talk) 02:03, 16 May 2019 (UTC)
