Welcome to Wikidata, Dr Zimbu!

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!

Hi Dr Zimbu,

you have made a lot of merges. Maybe you should request an adminship. That will reduce the current large RfD backlog. I would be happy to nominate you. Let me know.

Sincerey, Taketa (talk) 19:28, 18 June 2014 (UTC)

I have nominated you at Wikidata:Requests for permissions/Administrator/Dr Zimbu. Please post there whether you accept the nomination. Sincerely, Taketa (talk) 20:39, 18 June 2014 (UTC)

Congratulations, Dear Administrator!Edit

Deutsch | English | español | français | italiano | Nederlands | português | русский | +/−

An offering for our new administrator from your comrades... (our gift is better than the one at Commons or Meta)

You have your gun; now here's your badge: {{User admin}}/{{#babel:admin}} and {{Admin topicon}}. Enjoy!

Dr Zimbu, congratulations! You now have the rights of administrator on Wikidata. Please take a moment to read the Wikidata:Administrators page and watchlist related pages (in particular Wikidata:Project chat, Wikidata:Requests for comment, and Wikidata:Administrators' noticeboard), before launching yourself into page deletions, page protections, account blockings, or modifications of protected pages.

Please feel free to join us on IRC: #wikidata-admin @ If you need access, you can flag someone down at @ You may find Wikidata:Guide to Adminship to be useful reading. You may also want to consider adding yourself to meta:Template:Wikidata/Ambassadors, and to any similar page on your home wiki if one exists. (Check Wikipedia:Wikidata/Wikidatans (Q14964498).)

Please also add/update the languages you speak to your listing at Wikidata:List of administrators. You may also like to add your username to this list if you would not like that items you delete at RfD get marked as deleted automatically. Again, welcome to the admin corps!

Akodon mansoensis (Q11840920)Edit

Different species. Please unmerge. --Succu (talk) 08:29, 6 July 2014 (UTC)

I think they are the same species: (following the IUCN source) gives Akodon olivaceus and Akodon mansoensis as synonims of Abrothrix olivaceus.--Dr Zimbu (talk) 08:44, 6 July 2014 (UTC)
ITIS treats them as separate species, so they should not be merged. --Succu (talk) 08:55, 6 July 2014 (UTC)
I can't find Abrothrix olivaceus nor the genus Abrothrix in the ITIS. talks (in en:Akodon, citing the book Mammal Species of the World of 2005) about confusion between the genera Abrothrix and Akodon, while the ITIS report for Akodon has been reviewed in 2004. I think Abrothrix olivaceus are Akodon olivaceus are effectively the same species, assigned to different genera according to different interpretation of the taxonomy. I am not sure about Akodon mansoensis, however--Dr Zimbu (talk) 10:30, 6 July 2014 (UTC)
I was talking about Akodon mansoensis (TSN=633049) and Akodon olivaceus (TSN=633056) ITIS accepts both species, thats why both items should be retained. Move sitelinks instead if you think thats OK. And yes: Mammal Species of the World treats Akodon mansoensis as an synonym of Abrothrix olivaceus (MSW-ID=13000534). Unfortunatly we have no mechanism to express these different taxonomic opinions. --Succu (talk) 11:19, 6 July 2014 (UTC)
I see. I undeleted the item and undo the merge. I also moved the sitelink to Q305888 (as the article is es:Akodon olivaceus)--Dr Zimbu (talk) 12:52, 6 July 2014 (UTC)

Q1335082 and Q3071104: which one to keep?Edit

Hello. I merged these 2 items into the 1st one (lower ID), and asked for deletion on the 2nd item (in fact, it's The Game tool, not me, that chose the one to keep). But you reverted, you merged into the 2nd one and deleted the 1st one. Can you please make clear the reasons? None of these 2 pages is linked. I'm not a newcomer, but I might have still some rules to understand... Thanks. Zetud (talk) 22:08, 15 July 2014 (UTC)

Wikidata:Database reports/Wikipedia versionsEdit

Hello Dr Zimbu! I have seen you contributing to a lot at pages linked to (as for today titled Wikipedia versions but intended in general for WMF projects). I would be happy if you can review the properties of these pages, create the missing Wikibook and Wikiversity project pages, comment on user:I18n/sandbox (where you may find many usefull queries) and comment there with new / additional ideas. Best regards Gangleri also aka I18n (talk) 15:38, 9 January 2016 (UTC)

Hi! I want to let you know that the number of Wikidata:Database reports/WMF projects has increased to more then 385. You may be interested in adding labels and descriptions in other anguages, follow the discussion at property talk:P1800 and comment there. Best regards Gangleri also aka I18n (talk) 02:58, 12 January 2016 (UTC)

smartphone model (Q19723451)Edit

LOL! A cosa stavi pensando? :P --★ → Airon 90 18:33, 23 February 2016 (UTC)



Could you create the article en:Elections in Azerbaijan in Italian?

Thank you. 10:22, 28 February 2018 (UTC)

Merge Q1752037Edit


Are you sure about the merge between Praia da Rocha (Q1752037) and Q56651030? Usually locality and beach are kept apart (plus, this merge results in a self-referencing statement: Praia da Rocha (Q1752037) location (P276) Praia da Rocha (Q1752037) which is obviously wrong).
