Welcome to Wikidata, DannyS712!

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! –MJLTalk 01:11, 29 May 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@MJL: thanks for the welcome --DannyS712 (talk) 01:12, 29 May 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Of course! I do it often lol. –MJLTalk 01:46, 29 May 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]


Hello. Thanks for your help. But this is not correct. If you remove a closing tag from an "inline" (span-wrapped) unit and join it with another div-wrapped unit, the first one also becomes a div-wrapped unit, which we have to avoid in lists. If you invalidated the first unit (inside a list), there would be a <div> tag inside <li>, which renders very bad. Please keep this in mind as that was a step back. --Matěj Suchánek (talk) 16:40, 26 August 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@Matěj Suchánek: thanks for the explanation - I'll make sure to avoid this in the future. Sorry, --!DannyS712 (talk) 20:39, 26 August 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]


Hi Danny, ich translated the Template:Single or multiple lexeme in Wikidata:Lexicographical data/Documentation, but the translated versions do not appear in the documentation. TNT didn't´work. What am I doing wrong? Regards --Partynia (talk) 05:48, 27 August 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@Partynia: I'm not sure why TNT didn't work, but I fixed it (and also noinclude'd the languages tag in the template, but that shouldn't have been the issue) - thanks for your contributions to translating --DannyS712 (talk) 05:56, 27 August 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Thanks for your help. Maybe it didn't work because I looked at it in the preview only.--Partynia (talk) 06:04, 27 August 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Danny, one more question: Creating an individual user-page there is a insertion saying: "This page currently displays a user page from another wiki. If you create a new page here, it will no longer display the other wiki's page." The translation of this inserted sentence (into German, maybe others too) is wrong. Where can I change this insertion? Regards --Partynia (talk) 07:37, 27 August 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@Partynia: are you talking about "Diese Seite zeigt derzeit eine Benutzerseite von einem anderen Wiki an. Falls du hier eine neue Seite erstellst, wird sie auf anderen Wikiseiten nicht mehr angezeigt."? What should it be instead? --DannyS712 (talk) 07:49, 27 August 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Yes. It should be: "Diese Seite zeigt derzeit eine Benutzerseite von einem anderen Wiki an. Falls du hier eine neue Seite erstellst, wird die Seite des anderen Wikis hier nicht mehr angezeigt." --Partynia (talk) 07:54, 27 August 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Partynia: I copied it to translatewiki (translatewiki:Special:Diff/8961683) - it should be updated here in a few days --DannyS712 (talk) 08:00, 27 August 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Thanks. Who is entitled to change it on MediaWiki:Globaluserpage? Are there any other translations (fr, es, pl etc.)? --Partynia (talk) 08:14, 27 August 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Other translations are at - locally, admins can edit the translations, but translation corrections are encouraged to be done on translatewiki --DannyS712 (talk) 08:22, 27 August 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Thanks, Danny. I checked 6 other languages (es, it, pl, fr, nl, cs). All of them are translated correctly. So a translation admin is not entitled to change it, right? --Partynia (talk) 08:34, 27 August 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]
If you are talking about editing the translation here on wikidata, that is for admins. Translatewiki is a separate wiki, not hosted by the WMF, but any translator can edit the translation there. --DannyS712 (talk) 08:35, 27 August 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]
But translation here on wikidata, is also for translation admins? I mentioned a similar problem here: [[1]].--Partynia (talk) 08:40, 27 August 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]
To edit a translation, you need the `translate` right, which all users have here. To mark a page for translation you need to be a translation admin, but to do the translation you don't need to be. --DannyS712 (talk) 08:42, 27 August 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]


Why are you making a mess? Now all other Wikinews languages does not have the most important interwiki link. Are you going to move those other languages as well? You have to do it. Otherwise anything does not make any sense. --Wnews reader (talk) 08:49, 15 October 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Enwikinews policy is that the category for a topic should have the same wiki data item as the topic, so that, eg, when looking at the article for donal trump, the inter wiki link to wiki news shows up. I don’t know about other wikis’ policies, so I don’t intend to move their links, but can if desired --DannyS712 (talk) 11:23, 15 October 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I am not speaking about any policies. I am speaking about common sense. Other languages of Wikinews needs the most important interwiki link (English). Now they don't have it. They need be on the same place, of course. --Wnews reader (talk) 11:33, 15 October 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]
On enwikinews, the common sense is to link the category to the subject. I don’t know about other projects --DannyS712 (talk) 11:57, 15 October 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Pardon., DannyS712. Wnews reader is correct that all the Wikinews links, not just the English one, should be moved. This is not peculiar to just the English-language edition. See Wikidata:Wikinews/Development. --Pi zero (talk) 12:25, 15 October 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I stand corrected. Will move some more languages --DannyS712 (talk) 12:27, 15 October 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I still want to say this: Wikidata's basic functionality is provide interwiki links between different languages. So this is a no-brainer. Hopefully you will move ALL of them. --Wnews reader (talk) 13:00, 15 October 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Just started eswikinews --DannyS712 (talk) 12:47, 15 October 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]
It may, or may not, be useful to note there is a gadget for moving all the links for a given project on a given item to another item. I have it selected on my preferences and have often used it, for this purpose. The only thing to watch out for (that I can think of atm) is that one or two of the Wikinews projects have peculiarities of structure that result in more than one link floating around, so that one might be on the item for a Wikipedia article while another for that same Wikinews is on the item for the corresponding Wikipedia category. --Pi zero (talk) 12:54, 15 October 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Indeed, but I don't know how to do that automatically; quick statements is pretty straightforward --DannyS712 (talk) 12:57, 15 October 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I suspected that might be an obstacle to using the gadget. Yet, as Wnews reader points out, the point of the exercise is to move all the Wikinews links, en masse. All the Wikinews pages should interwiki to each other, just as all of them should be listed at the Wikipedia article. So this really ought to be done by item, rather than by Wikinews project. --Pi zero (talk) 13:07, 15 October 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Hmm, well, if you want to help, I'm grateful, but I don't have the time to go through each item. I can, however, set quickstatements to do it while I do real-life commitments. Just started nlwikinews --DannyS712 (talk) 13:09, 15 October 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Just started de. I'll need to do ru later (hopefully tomorrow) since the letters aren't latin --DannyS712 (talk) 13:37, 15 October 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Interwiki links between different languages of Wikinews are still broken. When are you going to move cs, fi, fr, ru and others? Or you think that readers of those languages are less important? --Wnews reader (talk) 15:11, 17 October 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I thought that, after the issues with the previous languages, I would try to come up with a better method. You are welcome to move some of those links too --DannyS712 (talk) 16:22, 17 October 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Kategorie:Brasilianische Personalie

Hei, deine Kategorie macht Probleme und wirft in der de-WP eine rote Kategorie gleichen Namens aus, der durch den täglichen Botlauf im Projekt "Rote Frauen" nicht behoben werden kann. Da ich das schon mal bei verschiedenen Namen hier hatte, die mit "Kategorie:Vorname, Nachname" eingetragen waren, nehme ich die "Kategorie" mal testweise raus. Irgendwie muss ich versuchen, den Fehler zu eliminieren. Und ich kann auch nicht nachvollziehen, warum das Wort "Kategorie" da stehen muss. Nur weil es in der spanischen Variante "Category" heißt, aber in 20 anderen Sprachen nicht? --Mef.ellingen (talk) 14:27, 31 October 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I'm sorry, but I don't know what you wrote, and google translate didn't help - I'm confused. Can you explain in English? Thanks, --DannyS712 (talk) 17:00, 31 October 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I will try it, it is not so easy. You have open a Kategorie:Brasilianische Personalie, i don't no, why. This make mistakes at the german WP, because there is listet this category automatically in an artikel, which will be updatet every day. So i have a red category evereyday in the list of mistakes. I don't know, why you need the word "Kategorie", because there is only one spain information with "category" and 20 information without it. I have delayed this word in Brasilianische Personalie and i hope that i have no mistake more. --Mef.ellingen (talk) 18:27, 31 October 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Restore qualifiers and references of anonymous authors

Hi DannyS712, you seem to have mass replaced author (P50) -> anonymous (Q4233718) with unknown value, but in the process you removed the qualifiers and the references. Please restore this data. If you're unable to do so, please undo your batch. Multichill (talk) 22:17, 26 December 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I come here with the same request... you've removed all qualifiers for signature of articles, like [2]... which is very problematic to wikisource items... - for those, the "anonym" author linked to a specific category, link that disappeared with you hasty change... at least, users who used that way of indicating unknown author should have been notified, and the matter discussed, as it was previously, and maintained this way... :(

Hey DannyS712, I am not happy with Special:Diff/1133868652. These items are neither properly identified, nor is its content verifiable, nor do we have structural need for them. I nominated them with the hope that someone knows something about them and improved them; however, as this has not happend unfortunately, I think a deletion would be the way to go here. Otherwise we just pile up dead content that probably nobody will ever be able to improve. —MisterSynergy (talk) 11:15, 11 March 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]

German Wikinews: Portals and "Themenportal" categories

DannyS712, I've noticed that you replace German Wikinews portals by German Wikinews "Themenportal" categories in Wikidata. Please, stop doing it, "Themenportals" are NOT portals, according to their main category (see de:n:Kategorie:Themenportal: "Diese Kategorie dient der alphabetischen Auflistung aller Themenportale von Wikinews. Die Portale selbst sind über das Portal:Hauptportal zu finden und werden in der Regel automatisch aktualisiert.

To avoid overlapping, it's better to use portal categories for "Themenportal" categories. If you're still against it, I expect a reasonable explanation from you, especially considering that you aren't a native German speaker.--Russian Rocky (talk) 23:56, 12 June 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@Russian Rocky: I apologize for that, though your tone is a bit combative - I did one run of those, and don't recall editing them since --DannyS712 (talk) 01:21, 13 June 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Thank you for your cooperation, DannyS712. If you have no objection, I'll take care of portal entries using the above mentioned pattern. Also, I apologize if you found my message a bit combative. I encountered two Wikidata entries, where German Wikinews links were replaced, and suspected the worse (remembering that admins are prone to mass changes). That's why it sounded alarming, unfortunately.--Russian Rocky (talk) 02:09, 13 June 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]
No problem - if I recall I think this was part of a larger update to wikinews links, but I'm not familiar with dewikinews specifically --DannyS712 (talk) 02:13, 13 June 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Ok, thank you for informing me about the update, I'll check it out later. Though, it's unlikely to be related to the German Wikinews and its portals. As you may notice, those "Themeportal" categories are primarily used to display news on portal pages via DynamicPageList.--Russian Rocky (talk) 03:23, 13 June 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Closure of deletion discussion

Hi DannyS712. I noticed you closed the discussion of Q98077491, despite that being the only item that is pratically in use. A way how to replace it was outlined. The use of that iitem breaks the model currently in use for the position. Oddly the creator of the items avoids responding to any question about that change. As Wikidata:Requests_for_deletions is the forum for deleting item, I think it should be there. If you prefer, I can nominate all other similar items. Alternative, we could just re-open the discussion and let the creator respond to the open questions. I spare you my view on the conduct of the participants, as this isn't the question at hand. --- Jura 13:07, 20 August 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]

As I said in my closing comment (see Wikidata:Requests for deletions/Archive/2020/08/20#Q98077491) - "I suggest opening a discussion with the relevant WikiProject, or an RfC" regarding whether this type of item should exist, rather than forcing one at RfD DannyS712 (talk) 03:08, 21 August 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]
The question is not about the type in general, but this specific one for US senators. There are plenty of similar questions on RfD, but you only choose to close this one. I hope it isn't the conduct by the two other participants that made you take this action. --- Jura 05:35, 21 August 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Why is this specific one different from all of the other ones? DannyS712 (talk) 22:07, 21 August 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Pratically only Q98077491 is in use for US senator (apparently an undiscussed (AFAIK), arbitrary change by a new editor). The other items were just created and never used. United States senator (Q4416090) follows a model with multiple P39 of Q4416090. It seems fairly obvious if you look at some of them. 07:04, 22 August 2020 (UTC)--- Jura

Ciao Danny, On your personal page, you put a link to the creation of props that you have created. Don't you want to make a table replacing this link (on a new page for example)? The more numerous your contributions, the heavier the load and the longer the research time. I think a lot of people have already clicked on this link following your application.

Newbie needs to be pointed in the right direction.

On there is a proposal to create a knowledge base of OBD error codes. OBD (On Board Diagnostics) refers to a computer in cars made after 1996. While dealers have detailed systems, when a car is ten years old or older, the dealer is not interested in support, and the dealer shop cost for repairs is not commensurate with the car's value. Accordingly, forums arise where members share their knowledge. However, forums are a bad structure for collective knowledge.

The format used in Wikipedia is ideal for this type of collective knowledge, where one takes the source code for the screen, copies it into Wikipedia, and the basic structure is installed, for members to add their knowledge. However, Wikipedia will delete such a posting because it is not deemed an appropriate subject for an encyclopedia. It appears WikiData is an appropriate site, but I am unable to work out if its framework is similar to Wikipedia. If it requires I add each diagnostic code separately, it would take too long for what is a hobby. Following the tutorials was not much help, probably because I am intuitive learner.

Is WikiData the right tool, and if not, can you point me in the right direction?  – The preceding unsigned comment was added by X350X358 (talk • contribs) at 20:09, 11 January 2021 (UTC).Reply[reply]

I don't think wikidata is the right tool, since it would require adding each code separately as its own item. Not sure what the right direction would be, sorry. --DannyS712 (talk) 00:09, 12 January 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Help with a deleted listing.

I'm fairly new to wiki data. And I couldn't find much information regarding wikidata online as well. I created an item for Q6 cloud accounting and it seems it was deleted for advertising/spamming reasons. The listing was created for education purposes and not to advertise reasons. I've checked on the site and there are many similar listings to the one I created. For instance the listing for this company seems very similar content format wise to the listing I created. Why was the listing I created not approved? And is there something I need to improve on? Thank you.  – The preceding unsigned comment was added by Q6CloudAccounting (talk • contribs) at 03:19, 19 April 2021 (UTC).Reply[reply]

@Q6CloudAccounting: the difference between your item and Xero (Q8043794) is that the latter clearly meets the notability policy (Wikidata:Notability) since it has sitelinks, while your entry did not appear to be notable. --DannyS712 (talk) 06:00, 19 April 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Could you please explain...

Call for participation in the interview study with Wikidata editors

Dear DannyS712,

I hope you are doing good,

I am Kholoud, a researcher at the King’s College London, and I work on a project as part of my PhD research that develops a personalized recommendation system to suggest Wikidata items for the editors based on their interests and preferences. I am collaborating on this project with Elena Simperl and Miaojing Shi.

I would love to talk with you to know about your current ways to choose the items you work on in Wikidata and understand the factors that might influence such a decision. Your cooperation will give us valuable insights into building a recommender system that can help improve your editing experience.

Participation is completely voluntary. You have the option to withdraw at any time. Your data will be processed under the terms of UK data protection law (including the UK General Data Protection Regulation (UK GDPR) and the Data Protection Act 2018). The information and data that you provide will remain confidential; it will only be stored on the password-protected computer of the researchers. We will use the results anonymized (?) to provide insights into the practices of the editors in item selection processes for editing and publish the results of the study to a research venue. If you decide to take part, we will ask you to sign a consent form, and you will be given a copy of this consent form to keep.

If you’re interested in participating and have 15-20 minutes to chat (I promise to keep the time!), please either contact me on or use this form with your choice of the times that work for you.

I’ll follow up with you to figure out what method is the best way for us to connect.

Please contact me using the email mentioned above if you have any questions or require more information about this project.

Thank you for considering taking part in this research.

How we will see unregistered users


You get this message because you are an admin on a Wikimedia wiki.

When someone edits a Wikimedia wiki without being logged in today, we show their IP address. As you may already know, we will not be able to do this in the future. This is a decision by the Wikimedia Foundation Legal department, because norms and regulations for privacy online have changed.

Instead of the IP we will show a masked identity. You as an admin will still be able to access the IP. There will also be a new user right for those who need to see the full IPs of unregistered users to fight vandalism, harassment and spam without being admins. Patrollers will also see part of the IP even without this user right. We are also working on better tools to help.

If you have not seen it before, you can read more on Meta. If you want to make sure you don’t miss technical changes on the Wikimedia wikis, you can subscribe to the weekly technical newsletter.

We have two suggested ways this identity could work. We would appreciate your feedback on which way you think would work best for you and your wiki, now and in the future. You can let us know on the talk page. You can write in your language. The suggestions were posted in October and we will decide after 17 January.

Thank you. /Johan (WMF)
