Logo of Wikidata

Welcome to Wikidata, ChristianKl!

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.
  • Contents – The main help page for editing and using the site.
  • Project chat – Discussions about the project.
  • Tools – A collection of user-developed JavaScript tools to allow for easier completion of some tasks.

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! Liuxinyu970226 (talk) 11:46, 15 April 2016 (UTC)

Property proposal Norwegian silvertax 1816 contributor ID

In cases like this it makes sense to ping the person with whom you disagree (Richard) when responding. Otherwise, the discussion needs more people to be involved.

Structured Data - file captions coming this week (January 2019)

MediaWiki message delivery (talkcontribs)

Hi all, following up on last month's announcement...

Multilingual file captions will be released this week, on either Wednesday, 9 November or Thursday, 10 November 2019. Captions are a feature to add short, translatable descriptions to files. Here's some links you might want to look follow before the release, if you haven't already:

  1. Read over the help page for using captions - I wrote the page on because captions are available for any MediaWiki user, feel free to host/modify a copy of the page here on Commons.
  2. Test out using captions on Beta Commons.
  3. Leave feedback about the test on the captions test talk page, if you have anything you'd like to say prior to release.

Additionally, there will be an IRC office hour on Thursday, 10 January with the Structured Data team to talk about file captions, as well as anything else the community may be interested in. Date/time conversion, as well as a link to join, are on Meta.

Thanks for your time, I look forward to seeing those who can make it to the IRC office hour on Thursday. -- Keegan (WMF) (talk) 20:22, 7 January 2019 (UTC)

The Structured Data on Commons team has begun beta testing of the first feature, multilingual file captions, and all community members are invited to test it out. Captions is based on designs discussed with the community and the team is looking forward to hearing about testing. If all goes well during testing, captions will be turned on for Commons around the second week of January, 2019.

Multilingual captions are plain text fields that provide brief, easily translatable details of a file in a way that is easy to create, edit, and curate. Captions are added during the upload process using the UploadWizard, or they can be added directly on any file page on Commons. Adding captions in multiple languages is a simple process that requires only a few steps.

The details:

  • There is a help page available on how to use multilingual file captions.
  • Testing will take place on Beta Commons. If you don’t yet have an account set up there, you’ll need one.
  • Beta Commons is a testbed, and not configured exactly like the real Commons site, so expect to see some discrepancies with user interface (UI) elements like search.
  • Structured Data introduces the potential for many important page changes to happen at once, which could flood the recent changes list. Because of this, Enhanced Recent Changes is enabled as it currently is at Commons, but with some UI changes.
  • Feedback and commentary on the file caption functionality are welcome and encouraged on the discussion page for this post.
  • Some testing has already taken place and the team are aware of some issues. A list of known issues can be seen below.
  • If you discover a bug/issue that is not covered in the known issues, please file a ticket on Phabricator and tag it with the “Multimedia” tag. Use this link to file a new task already tagged with "Multimedia."

Known issues:

Deletion property OSZK-egységesítettnévalak (P3133)

Texaner (talkcontribs)

I am requested the deletion of property 3133, because the related database is closed by Hungarian National Library ~~~~

ChristianKl (talkcontribs)

Closing of a database is no reason for property deletion on Wikidata.

Texaner (talkcontribs)

I think dead links to keep are really worthless! But yours choice. ~~~~

ChristianKl (talkcontribs)

They can still be used via or when other sources refer to the same items. Indeed it might be the only way to know what sources refer to when the data isn't hosted by the Hungarian National Library anymore.

Adding archiv actors/creators from the national archive of norway

Pmt (talkcontribs)

is it possible to add 27 000 Archive creators to wikidata. Mainly the creators are persons and govermental istitutions. An identificator is already created Arkivportalen agent ID (P5887) who will identify the creator and have a internet link back to the person and the Archive he created. for the sake of good order I am copying @Eli Fure: and @Jeblad:.

Hm... may be sked before. I will ask the same on the request for a bot. Sorry for the inconvenience

ChristianKl (talkcontribs)

I would post some examples to the main Project chat and say that you plan to add the rest. I would expect that nobody objects and then when the post when from the project chat gets archieved you can create them.

ChristianKl (talkcontribs)

On second thought, given that the external ID was created with clear support I don't think that it's clearly required to have an another discussion.

Pmt (talkcontribs)

Thank you very much for your answer regarding peoples and cencuses"Structural_reasons". Will it, in theory, be acptable to do such a thing? will it then be as simple as each person in that cencus will have their own item number (Q) ?

If possible can you answer more questions from me on this matter, regarding Importing dataset

ChristianKl (talkcontribs)

In theory is acceptable. In previous discussions on the bot approval page, there were concerned with creating a lot of items that then don't get used. You have to make the case on the bot approval that you don't just add a million items that nobody is going to use. I can't predict what the result of bot approval would be beforehand.

Pmt (talkcontribs)

Thank you for your reply. Clearly understanding that you can not predict anything of course. Without having any references I can imagine for an institution outside WD to having average age of the population would be usefull. Consentration of number of peoples per village... Of course not done in WD but created With data available from WD, structured on names, age and so on.

Could you pls help to rectify the formatter URL for the KMDb documentary ID. I updated but it doesn't seem to work.

I added KMDb documentary ID for My Heart Is Not Broken Yet (Q11292885) but it still points to the old url.

I have updated Template:KMDb film to reflect the new url and it worked when I clicked from the article.


ChristianKl (talkcontribs)

When I click on the link it shows me the correct url. Maybe, it's just a matter of reloading the page for you?

There will be an IRC office hour for Structured Data on Commons today, 1 October 2018, from 17:00-18:00 UTC in #wikimedia-office. You can find date/time conversion, as well as a link to join the chat in your browser if needed, on the IRC Office hours page on Meta. I realize this may be short notice for some people; I am experimenting with advanced notice times to see what works best for the most people, I'll be giving more warning before the next office hour. I look forward to seeing you there. -- Keegan (WMF) (talk) 16:02, 1 November 2018 (UTC)

The above message says 1 October in the body when it should say 1 November, as the subject line says. Apologies for making a new section by mass message, it's the only way to get this out quickly. See you in twenty minutes! -- Keegan (WMF) (talk) 16:37, 1 November 2018 (UTC)
