June 2013Edit


Welcome to Wikidata, Dusti!

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! ·addshore· talk to me! 16:23, 29 June 2013 (UTC)

Friendly reminderEdit

Hey. Glad to see you contributing to Wikidata! I'd just like to remind you that when requesting items for deletion, you should probably check the "What links here" in the sidebar. That last "Outer planets" item you nominated was still linked to by its category item, and if I hadn't caught that when deleting it, it would have broken the item until somebody else did. It's no biggie, though, just takes a little of the workload off the deleting administrator.   TCN7JM 23:34, 4 August 2013 (UTC)

Thanks! I'm still trying to figure things out, so I'm glad you caught that! Dusti*poke* 23:53, 4 August 2013 (UTC)
Not a problem. I'm sure you'll pick it up in no time. Have a great day. TCN7JM 00:21, 5 August 2013 (UTC)
