Welcome to Wikidata, Blackcat!

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! --Tobias1984 (talk) 10:03, 22 August 2013 (UTC)



Babel lets you view and edit more than one language on Wikidata. Just add e.g.{{#babel:de-N|en-3|es-1|fr-2|nl-3|it-4|da-0}} to your user page. --Tobias1984 (talk) 10:03, 22 August 2013 (UTC)

Removal of statements.Edit

Hi Blackcat, i wanted to ask you why you removed all the statements of this entity. I've reverted to a previous edition. Regards,--Zeroth (talk) 01:01, 17 May 2018 (UTC)

  • Hello @Zeroth:, because - I suppose - it has been left by error, not existing any article on any Wikimedia project nor a WikiCommons category abotut her. -- Blackcat (talk) 09:35, 17 May 2018 (UTC)
Hi again Blackcat. First of all, the way to delete items is not removing the statements, but leaving a deletion request here. Second, regarding the inclusion criteria, ill suggest you read the Wikidata:Notability page. Having no wiki links its not reason to delete an item. Regards, --Zeroth (talk) 13:34, 17 May 2018 (UTC)
Ok, @Zeroth: I didn't know. So far I was convinced that neither article nor Commons category = no Wikidata entry. -- Blackcat (talk) 13:53, 17 May 2018 (UTC)
Sure, no problem. Wikidata standards for inclusion of entities is far less strict than the other projects. Regards, --Zeroth (talk) 15:44, 17 May 2018 (UTC)

Già :-) --Superchilum(talk to me!) 09:22, 10 September 2018 (UTC)

Merate Astronomical Observatory (Q3982942)Edit

Shouldn't the telescope be a separate item from the observatory? Also, at Turin astrophysical observatory (Q115695) you changed operator (P137) to authority (P797) - note that the infobox in the enwp article will show the first, but not the second. Thanks. Mike Peel (talk) 19:05, 17 September 2018 (UTC)

The telescope has a slightly elaborated story, @Mike Peel:: the original one was in Brera, central Milan. In the late 1920s an auxiliary telescope was installed in Merate, a small municipality near Milan. Actually it's not an osservatory in itself but the operating dépendance of Brera Observatory. Another different story is i.e. the Observatory of Rome: it's composed by two separated observatories, one in Monte Mario, northern Rome, and another in Monte Porzio, a small town near the Capital. Until 2017 there was a third one which now is part of the Abruzzo Observatory. As for the property authority (P797), actually INAF manages the observatories rather than operating, but frankly I don't get the difference in English. -- Blackcat (talk) 21:32, 17 September 2018 (UTC)

Merging itemsEdit

Hallo Blackcat,
When you (want to) merge items, you may want to use the merge.js gadget from help page about merging. It helps with merging, gives the option to always keep the lower number (which is older, so preferable in most cases) and removes the need to file a request on Wikidata:Requests for deletions.

thanks @Cycn:! -- Blackcat (talk) 19:25, 5 December 2018 (UTC)

Änderungen bei Paola Felix Q115956Edit

Hallo Blackcat, ich verstehe Deine Änderungen nicht, bezüglich Kleinschreibung von "del" bei ihren Mädchennamen. Vgl. dazu die Diskussion auf der entsprechenden Seite Paola Felix und die dort genannten Quellen für die Schreibweise "Del". Hinzu kommt noch die Geburtsanzeige im Webarchiv → [1]. Gruss --Schofför (talk) 11:59, 28 December 2018 (UTC)

Hello @Schofför:, I don't speak German thus I reply in English. It might be possible that her current surname is "Del Medico" because of customs (not by birth), but her Italian surname might as well be "del Medico", see here. Here, further, she presents herself as Paola Felix-del Medico. Where's the truth? -- Blackcat (talk) 23:22, 28 December 2018 (UTC)
Hello Blackcat, (I'm trying to answer here using Google translation) The page on Facebook is not her personal page (just a group of followers). On the side of Eurovision, in the section "Mit 18 Jahren Platz fünf beim ESC" is the name of her father: Vittorio Del Medico > same as in the birth announcement. On her own website she writes under profile and under biography "Paola Felix - Del Medico", respectively "Paola Felix-Del Medico". In the Italian language, the prefixed additions are usually written in capital letters for surnames (it:Dal Sasso, it:Di Stefano, it:Del Carretto (disambigua), en:Gianni De Biasi, en:Cristiano Del Grosso, en:D'Agostino, ...). Greeting --Schofför (talk) 00:24, 29 December 2018 (UTC)
Yes, it might be possible that one changed their name. My family name used to be "d'Afflitto" until my granfather, then became "D'Afflitto". In fact in Italian such names have been capitalized later. Anyway if you think that "Del Medico" is better change it, but I'm afraid you're going to find more resistence from English and French projects. -- Blackcat (talk) 16:32, 31 December 2018 (UTC)

Inserimenti allegriEdit

Ciao Blackcat, è stato un mio errore, ho ancora poca esperienza con wikidata ed evidentemente ho scritto l'info nel posto sbagliato. Chiedo venia. Nelle mie intenzioni voleva essere una didascalia a una foto. --Borgil (nin á quetë) 22:38, 10 February 2019 (UTC)

Q6664 and Q16848949 are two items and two legal personsEdit

Thanks. Matthew hk (talk) 15:37, 23 June 2019 (UTC)

No. Cesena F.C. is in continuity with AC Cesena. Romagna FC and so on is another club with nothing to do. -- Don't merge FC Cesena with Romagna Calcio. -- Blackcat (talk) 17:11, 23 June 2019 (UTC)
