Welcome to Wikidata, Cathy Richards!

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!

Alto / ContraltoEdit

Hallo Cathy Richards, I'm sorry, but you edits are completely wrong. In some languages the contralto voice begins with the syllable „contra“, in others it doesn't. In those languages it describes a very deep contralto voice (e.g. the german Kontra-Alt), while the normal contralto is simply called alto (Alt). Some time ago I have tried to fix all these errors, but now it was all mixed up again. I have therefore reverted. --Rodomonte (talk) 07:12, 22 April 2020 (UTC)

We have the female voice type contralto (also called alto in some languages, Q37137), the very deep female voice (also called something like contralto in some languages, Q54635335), the male or female voice range (Q54634991) and the choir voice range (Q6983813). These are all different items, and there are several more with othere characteristic properties. --Rodomonte (talk) 07:26, 22 April 2020 (UTC)
