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.

Hi Bene,

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

Hallo Bene*!

Über Wikidata:Tools/Query data bin ich auf dein Tool AskWikidata gestoßen. Es scheint leider nicht mehr zu funktionieren, bzw. die URL ist nicht erreichbar. Weißt du, woran das liegt? Ich würde mich sehr freuen, wenn du das Tool wieder ans Laufen bringen könntest. Liebe Grüße --Ameisenigel (talk) 17:32, 23 March 2021 (UTC)


Hello Bene*,
Could you add an additional message for userwarn.js, please. I come across more and more new (registered) contributors who mix everything up in RDF triplets. In the message there should be a link to https://www.wikidata.org/wiki/Wikidata:Introduction in the language of the user. In addition, they mix the concepts by putting values for others. They do not vandalize and think they are doing the right thing, when everything is mixed up. Example: Special:Contributions/Amousey. Best regards. —Eihel (talk) 22:16, 22 September 2021 (UTC)

It could be a special template for WD, Template:Uw-basesEihel (talk) 05:52, 23 September 2021 (UTC)

Bot deflagEdit

Hi Bene*. I have deflagged your bot since you have been long-time inactive. If you come back and have interest in running the bot we can sort this out.--Ymblanter (talk) 17:36, 3 November 2021 (UTC)
