Welcome to Wikidata, Chuankaz!

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.

Re emailEdit

Hi. You are welcome to use the quote whichever way you wish, however you wish. As a relatable statement, it has probably a little morphed, and should be more considered in relation to the politics of this place. I had a break and predominantly realigned my contributions to items, where these contributions align with my work on other wikis, so I am still active here, just not so much on matters that will land one on my user talk page.

My commitment to the over all principles of this and other wikis, and my range and level of contributions have been around for a while, so I am not going to fall as a typical commentator, or commenter. In fact because of my history through WMF places, it was my gentle, purposeful political statement, especially as WD is secondary to my contributions on the sisters. IOW it has context though you would need to know the broader background to comprehend.

Best of luck with the thesis.  — billinghurst sDrewth 22:25, 14 September 2020 (UTC)
