Welcome to Wikidata, DDupard!

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.

Louis JanoirEdit

Bonjour DDupard, j’ai créé la page Q20202656 pour l’ouvrage intitulé Souvenirs et Récits contés le 28 novembre 1933, n’hésitez pas vous en inspirer pour la suite… Il est tout à fait possible de créer de nouveaux éléments. Bonne continuation… genium ⟨✉⟩ 18:18, 22 June 2015 (UTC)

Ah merci, genium , quelle bonne surprise!--DDupard (talk) 05:29, 23 June 2015 (UTC)

Identifiant BnFEdit


Pour information, je viens de corriger le Bibliothèque nationale de France ID (P268) de Jean Feray (Q22248442), il ne faut pas mettre toute l'URL mais seulement les 9 caractères à la fin. En cas de besoin, il ne faut surtout pas hésiter à demander de l'aide.

Hi. To note that VIAFs are particular, in that if they belong to an individual entity, so that is where they are attached. They would not also be attached to another entity like a duo, as that should have its own VIAF identifier.  — billinghurst sDrewth 05:59, 5 August 2017 (UTC)

Repurposing itemsEdit

Please don't repurpose items like you did with Auguste Boulard (Q19758492). An item for the father Auguste Boulard (Q19758490) had already existed, just got erroneously merged in 2016. But if an item is missing simply create a new one with Special:NewItem, don't repurpose existing items, please. Thank you! --Marsupium (talk) 21:31, 13 February 2018 (UTC)

Ok Marsupium, sorry, thanks.--DDupard (talk) 08:22, 14 February 2018 (UTC)
Thank you for your response! Happy editing! --Marsupium (talk) 08:23, 14 February 2018 (UTC)

Alessandro Capalti (Q55461050)Edit

Hello, I have merged the above item into Alessandro Capalti (Q19832243) as you have suggested them to be describing the same subject in the deletion request. If you can find more items like this in the future, you can try to merge the item. I would definitely recommend using the gadget (see Help:Merge#Gadget). Cheers, Lakokat 14:15, 12 July 2018 (UTC)


Hallo DDupard,
When you merge items, you may want to use the merge.js gadget from help page about merging. It helps with merging, gives the option to always keep the lower number (which is older, so preferable in most cases) and removes the need to file a request on Wikidata:Requests for deletions.

JAR & Joel Arthur RosenthalEdit

You seem to have mixed up a company (JAR (Q3156858)) and the founder of this company (Joel Arthur Rosenthal (Q29982239)). I restored both items to the previous situation. Multichill (talk) 17:32, 1 January 2019 (UTC)

It's fine with me, but as already mentioned, both are the same : a one man show, with no advertising budget ; hardly a brick and mortar location, rarely opened, except to a few select and by appointment only. Happy New Year to all.--DDupard (talk) 18:13, 1 January 2019 (UTC)

Category itemsEdit

I just saw your revert at [1]. The bot's working correctly there, see the discussion at Wikidata:Requests for permissions/Bot/Pi bot 6. In general, consensus here is that the commons category sitelink should be on the category item if one exists, not the topic item (but if there is no category item then it's fine to be in the topic item instead). Thanks. Mike Peel (talk) 14:12, 11 April 2019 (UTC)

Mike Peel, Thanks for the message Bot is wrong: it affects Reasonator => blank ; unless you merge 'Topic's main category' with 'Main Topic' . Thanks for looking into it. And please let me know. Cheers'--DDupard (talk) 14:19, 11 April 2019 (UTC)
Mike Peel. What it does is link Q item: Topic main category to Reasonator instead of Q item: main Topic. Please stop the Bot.--DDupard (talk) 14:44, 11 April 2019 (UTC)
Is this in the Commons infobox, or elsewhere? In commons:Category:Roberto Minczuk, which is a similar case to the one you reverted, that does link to [2] rather than [3]. That's a bug, and I'll fix that in the infobox code shortly. If you're getting the link to Reasonator from somewhere else, please let me know where so that I can investigate. Thanks. Mike Peel (talk) 15:06, 11 April 2019 (UTC)
Yes that's it Mike Peel, thank you for checking. --DDupard (talk) 15:43, 11 April 2019 (UTC)
OK, I found the bug, it's a bit of old code. I've updated it in the sandbox version of the infobox, and added that temporarily to commons:Category:Roberto Minczuk. Does that work as you expect it to? I'll deploy the updated code in the infobox soon, probably this weekend. Thanks. Mike Peel (talk) 16:22, 11 April 2019 (UTC)
Mike Peel seems to be OK, (I do not understand coding). Have a great WE. ;).--DDupard (talk) 08:02, 12 April 2019 (UTC)
The change is now live. Thanks. Mike Peel (talk) 18:51, 23 April 2019 (UTC)
Mike Peel, Now there is another problem, the common's category is no longer linked to wikidata. Please fix bot or stop it. Reasonator seems to have lost associated media see Pablo Picasso [4] --05:51, 25 April 2019 (UTC)

Fusion erronéeEdit


Aimée Duvivier (Q36910134) (une personne) et Duvivier, Aimée (Q104056879) (un document) sont bien deux concepts différents et il ne faut donc surtout pas fusionner ces deux éléments.

Cdlt, VIGNERON (talk) 16:08, 8 March 2021 (UTC)

VIGNERON , "le document" est un article du Bénézit Dictionary of artist, c'est à dire un id= 'Benezit id' utilisé sur la page item de la personne. Le Viaf complète ses entrées de personnes avec un numéro Wikidata, après vérification c'est bien celui d'Aimée qui est entré. Me semble peu économique d'avoir 2 entrées pour le même sujet, mais c'est comme vous voulez.--DDupard (talk) 16:16, 8 March 2021 (UTC)
Oui, je suis d'accord que le document est "léger" mais il n'en est pas moins distinct de la personne (tout comme The Hunchback of Notre Dame (Q191380) l'est de Notre-Dame de Paris (Q2981)). Cela a déjà été signalé par ailleurs, l'éventuelle solution serait alors de supprimer les milliers d'article du Bénézit et non une fusion. Quant à l'économie, Wikidata possède plus de 90 millions d'éléments (contenant collectivement plus de 12 milliards de données), un millier de plus ne changera pas grand chose. Cdlt, VIGNERON (talk) 16:39, 8 March 2021 (UTC)
VIGNERON, la comparaison est audacieuse, mais comme je l'ai déjà mentionné, c'est comme vous voulez (+ émoticone sourire) --DDupard (talk) 16:44, 8 March 2021 (UTC))
