Welcome to Wikidata, Deborahjay!

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!

Welcome to my User talk page! -- Deborahjay (talk)


Hi again Deborahjay, and thanks for your message. As a first step, and since you speak several languages, my recommendation would be that you use the babel template to list your language proficiency on your user page. You can use my user page as inspiration or take a look at Help:Navigating_Wikidata/User_Options. Once you have this enabled you will see the labels/aliases of the items in your preferred languages. As a next step, I would recommend taking a tour which will introduce you to the basics of Wikidata editing. After that if you want you can join any wikiproject, if you feel like. Then you are ready to start editing! There is a Wikidata:List of properties, but there are many more that you can explore with tools like SQID. Once you are acquainted with the project, you can take a look to the tools that the community has built to make life easier. And of course if you have any question, just ask ahead.--Micru (talk) 19:24, 7 January 2017 (UTC)

Ophir Award for Best Original Music (Q28782509)Edit

Shalom Deborah!
About your edit in Ophir Award for Best Original Music (Q28782509).
This ophir award is not for soundtrack, there is a seperate Ophir Award for soundtracks in Ophir Award for Best Soundtrack (Q28782538). This Ophir Award is for the best music.

@Mikey641: Of course I want to correct this. The official website is only in Hebrew and difficult to navigate, and I don't trust IMDb entries in English. I only see the Hebrew text in he:פרס אופיר which is also the Hebrew label for the Wikidata item. So just to translate it literally, "best original music"? (I also saw there the separate prize for soundtrack which you mention here. רב תודות עבור התעניינותך וההכוונה! -- Deborahjay (talk) 19:02, 27 February 2017 (UTC)

I think that "best original music" would be the best translation. To be honest I really didn't understand the difference between best music and soundtrack. בשמחה  .--Mikey641 (talk) 19:04, 27 February 2017 (UTC)

Hi Deborahjay AND @Mikey641: Sorry for butting in here. I have just edited the WD page in question. I hope my change is acceptable, if not I apologize. Ottawahitech (talk) 22:53, 27 January 2021 (UTC)

Sensoring of informationEdit

Your edit of Major of the Mossos d'Esquadra (Q42108911) was not in good taste, and in my mind is attempt to gag information. You say that it was done because of 'excessive detail in description'. The description was short and to the point: 'Prif Heddwas y Mossoss, hyd at 2017 pan diswyddwyd ef gan Lywodraeth Sbaen.' Do remember that our mission is to further the 'sum of all human knowledge' and not just the bits which fit in with your political agenda! Celtica (talk) 13:31, 1 December 2017 (UTC)
