Welcome to Wikidata, Bordurie!

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.

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. With the same language codes you can add links to your userpage on Wikipedia e.g. de:User:User123. --Tobias1984 (talk) 14:29, 8 February 2014 (UTC)

Tour de l'AvenirEdit

Hello friend. The number of editions gives 56 for 2018, including the "Tour de l'Avenir 1970", as it includes by the organization of the race when you can see the victories that the race organization reports for France are 19 (due they include 1970). I have also put all the editions of the Tour de l'Avenir in wikidata, in case you want to replace the winners of this race in frwiki using the module cycling race: Repf72 (talk) 21:15, 15 August 2018 (UTC)

{{Cycling race/listofwinners|Q183186}} Lua error in Module:Cycling_race at line 118: attempt to index local 'black_list' (a nil value).

Hello Repf72. I do not agree with you. You can see on the official website that the number of editions is 55 : here, here, or other site like directvelo and lanouvellerepublique. You can see everywhere the number of 55. ASO communicates on this. You can not decide for them. For the explanation, go to the bottom of the page here and mostly this page. Thank you in advance for editing. Damonking (talk) 09:15, 16 August 2018 (UTC)

Please merge instead of blankingEdit

  Thank you for your work in maintaining Wikidata. I have a small suggestion to improve your future work. If you notice that two items are duplicates, please merge them instead of blanking one of them as you did with the page Q28480340. External sites use Wikidata identifiers, so it is important that we preserve the chain of references. We do this by making one item a redirect for the other. In particular, item ids are intended to be a permanent identifier, so we never reuse them for another concept. See Help:Merge for more information on how to merge items, and consider installing the Merge Gadget. Thanks! Bovlb (talk) 15:35, 24 March 2020 (UTC)
