Welcome to Wikidata, Bene*!

Wikidata is a free knowledge base that you can edit! It can be read and edited by humans and machines alike, and you can help. Go to any item page now and add to this ever-growing database!
Need some help getting started? Here are some pages you can familarise yourself with:

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.

GSoC Project Related DiscussionEdit

Hi Bene,

  • Here We shall discuss about things related to the project and resources.
  • If I have any questions, I will also ask here and below are some;

Can you please give me some resources about the work flow and the architecture of WikiData?

Is there a way we can setup a meeting so you get to explain some key points to me before I start writing my proposal?

wbEntity config value to be dropped on July 24thEdit


We are about to drop the mw.config.get( 'wbEntity') config value, that is deprecated for two years. Starting on Wednesday, July 24th, scripts that use this value may encounter issues.

I noticed that your script located on User:Bene*/statementfilter.js is still using this value. I suggest that you update it, for example by using the hook wikibase.entityPage.entityLoaded (see an example here).

If you have any questions or need help, feel free to leave a comment under the related task.

Thanks for your understanding, Lea Lacroix (WMDE) (talk) 08:55, 22 July 2019 (UTC)
