Welcome to Wikidata, DragonflySixtyseven!
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.
Hello, DragonflySixtyseven! I am just letting you know that I have added the autopatroller flag to your account, as you are a trusted user on Wikidata.

fix vandalism edit
Hi Dragonfly Sixtyseven! Are you sure that this was vandalism? This item is about the russian television series, not the american series. This is why @Jura1: has undone the previous edit. --Ameisenigel (talk) 15:13, 23 September 2021 (UTC)
- Please explain why you readded these statements and accuse other contributors of vandalism. --- Jura 18:27, 23 September 2021 (UTC)
- @Jura1: - Over my past 500 edits (going back to February 2020), I used edit summaries that included the word "vandalism" on 87 occasions. I've just finished examining each of those 87 diffs. 2 were false positives; in one instance, I apologized to the user. The other case was an IP editor; if you feel it appropriate, I will certainly apologize to that IP address as well, but I don't know that it would ever be seen by its intended recipient.
- Of the remaining 85, 82 were blatantly malicious attempts to damage the integrity of the database (and, sometimes, to commit defamation), 2 could potentially have been the result of someone clicking 'edit' by mistake and then accidentally hitting a few keys before unintentionally saving the edit, and 1 was a POV-pusher who included threats against other users in the edit summary. That's why I referred to the contributions of other users as vandalism: because in at least 82 / 87 cases, and possibly as many as 85 / 87 cases, that's what they were.
- If at any time I restored inappropriate content, I hope you will understand that this was not deliberate on my part. DS (talk) 22:00, 23 September 2021 (UTC)
Call for participation in a task-based online experiment edit
I hope you are doing well,
I am Kholoud, a researcher at King's College London, and I am working on a project as part of my PhD research, in which I have developed a personalised recommender model that suggests Wikidata items for the editors based on their past edits. I am inviting you to a task-based study that will ask you to provide your judgments about the relevance of the items suggested by our model based on your previous edits. Participation is completely voluntary, and your cooperation will enable us to evaluate the accuracy of the recommender system in suggesting relevant items to you. We will analyse the results anonymised, and they will be published to a research venue.
The study should take no more than 15 minutes.
If you agree to participate in this study, please either contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or use this form https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSees9WzFXR0Vl3mHLkZCaByeFHRrBy51kBca53euq9nt3XWog/viewform?usp=sf_link
Then, I will contact you with the link to start the study.
For more information about the study, please read this post: https://www.wikidata.org/wiki/User:Kholoudsaa In case you have further questions or require more information, don't hesitate to contact me through my mentioned email.
Thank you for considering taking part in this research.
It's nice of you to create new names. Please be so kind and fill in at least these three properties, it will save the other Wikidata contributors a lot of work:
- For persons of Russian, Ukrainian, Serbian origin etc., and other countries with Cyrillic writing system, create the name in Cyrillic script:
- instance of (P31) (use "family name (Q101352)", "male given name (Q12308941)" or "female given name (Q11879590)")
- writing system (P282) (use "Cyrillic script (Q8209)")
- native label (P1705) (use "mul" for the language specification; specific language specifications require a reference)
