Welcome to Wikidata, Celloheidi!

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, don't hesitate to ask on Project chat. 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! ToJack (say me) 20:33, 2 August 2019 (UTC)

Creating propertiesEdit


It seems that you have tried to create a property "Museum of Family History ID" at Q76180245. In Wikidata we have a distinction between items and properties, and what you created is an item, so you will not be able to use it as a property as you probably expected. To get this created as a property, you need to propose it: see Wikidata:Property_proposal. If you need any help with that process, let me know by leaving a message on my talk page.

Keep up the good work! − Pintoch (talk) 10:48, 24 November 2019 (UTC)

Property proposal: Museum of Family History ODEdit

Heading textEdit

I am going to modify and update proposal.

Uri SegalEdit

Hi! I see that you merged Israeli musical conductor Uri Segal (Q1978130) with Israeli actor Uri Segal (Q83888900). Could you please explain why you believe these are the same person? Thanks, Bovlb (talk) 14:42, 16 July 2020 (UTC)

I am fairly new to Wikidata. Can this action be reversed so that there are again two separate entities for these two different peopleEdit

I am responding to your query about why I merged. I now disagree with my action based on some new information that I acquired. I am fairly new to Wikidata. Can this action be reversed so that there are again two separate entities for these two different people Uri Segal (Q1978130) with Israeli actor Uri Segal (Q83888900)

  Done I have unmerged them for you. You could have done this yourself by looking in the history of the two items, and clicking on an approriate "restore" link. The hard part is that it is a little tricky to get the history of an item that has been redirected. You have to notice that you have been redirected, and follow the "Redirected from" link back to the original. Cheers, Bovlb (talk) 17:13, 16 July 2020 (UTC)

Thanks. I love this about Wikidata-- folks helping folks.
