Welcome to Wikidata, DanmicholoBot!

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!

Please do not make new P107 claims. It is to be deleted per WD:Requests for comment/Primary sorting property. --Izno (talk) 16:20, 14 September 2013 (UTC)

no/nb labelsEdit

Example diff. Why can't no/nb labels be the same? Jared Preston (talk) 22:07, 30 September 2013 (UTC)

Hi, I'm moving labels from "no" to "nb" since "no" should really not be used as a language code. It's a meta language code for two different languages; "nb" and "nn", and it's not possible to choose "no" in the Universal Language Selector. The "no" labels were imported by bot from nowiki, whose language code is "nb", but which was not configured correctly at that time. If we keep both "no" and "nb" labels, they will start to differ over time since noone will update the "no" labels, and we will end up with a mess. See my bot proposal for more info.

I see! Thought there must be an explanation :) thanks for the info. Good luck! Jared Preston (talk) 09:02, 1 October 2013 (UTC)
I've done the same for Andrea Petkovic (Q57557) now, deleting the no label and adding label/description for nb. Is that OK? Jared Preston (talk) 09:10, 1 October 2013 (UTC)
No problems :) But there's really no need to do it manually as my bot will eventually go over all the pages. It might take some time though, I have estimated about 40 days :) Danmichaelo (talk) 14:31, 1 October 2013 (UTC)
Here's an example of a bot re-adding a no-label after yours had removed it. You might want to check what's going on. Jared Preston (talk) 23:30, 8 October 2013 (UTC)
Thanks for notifying me! I've contacted the author. Danmichaelo (talk) 12:29, 9 October 2013 (UTC)

──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── Hi there! Here is another example of a bot currently adding a no-label. Jared Preston (talk) 14:32, 15 June 2014 (UTC)

Thanks for notifying me! I've contacted the author. Danmichaelo (talk) 15:24, 15 June 2014 (UTC)


Could you rerun your bot to remove labels and descriptions in no? There are still 52993 labels, 19295 descriptions and 827 alias in no. --Pasleim (talk) 18:04, 28 April 2014 (UTC)

Yes, I will do that. I also have a list of items with differing values in nb and no, which needs manual inspection. Danmichaelo (talk) 07:50, 29 April 2014 (UTC)


You'll want to correct the nn label of moss (Q25347) by hand. It had the Latin name before, which the bot de-capitalized. English is "moss", German is "Laubmoose". --EncycloPetey (talk) 05:43, 17 June 2016 (UTC)

Fixed, thanks! It had the common name "bladmoser" in nb, but "bladmosar" was missing from nn. There's probably more cases like this, I will scan over the rest of the bot's work later today. DanmicholoBot (talk) 06:14, 17 June 2016 (UTC)
