Logo of Wikidata

Welcome to Wikidata, DirkVE!

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! Cycn

Merging itemsEdit

Hallo DirkVE,

For merging items, you may want to use the merge.js gadget from help page about merging. It has an option "Request deletion for extra items on RfD" to automatically place a request to delete the emptied page. This way of nominating makes it a lot easier for the admins to process the requests.

With regards,

Seems a good idea! I will try to use this gadget. Thanks for the information. Kindest regards, DirkVE (talk) 05:43, 16 June 2014 (UTC)



Can you create the article en:National Art Museum of Azerbaijan in Dutch just like the article nl:Nationale Galerij van Armenië which you uploaded?

Thank you.

Good idea! Looks like an interesting article. Just give me a few weeks. Kindest regards, DirkVE (talk) 07:17, 26 February 2019 (UTC)
Thank you for your reply. I visited these two museums and was pleasantly surprised and enthralled how rich the collections of these internationally almost unknown museums of these overlooked Caucasian countries are. Kindest regards. Gartok (talk) 07:28, 26 February 2019 (UTC)
  Done. See nl:Nationaal kunstmuseum van Azerbeidzjan. DirkVE (talk) 11:32, 1 July 2019 (UTC)
