Welcome to Wikidata, EUvin!

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:

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.

Инструменты для работыEdit

Прошу обратить внимание, что в настройках на закладке "Гаджеты" есть несколько инструментов, без которых работать на Wikidata очень тяжело. Я имею в виду "slurpInterwiki" для импорта интервик из статей, "labelLister" для просмотра и редактирования меток и "autoEdit" для автоматического заполнения меток и описаний. --Art-top (talk) 04:33, 30 November 2012 (UTC)Reply[reply]

New propertiesEdit

Hello! You have just created some properties (P280, P281…) : may be you didn't know that properties must be discussed firt on Wikidata:Property proposal then listed on wd:List of properties.

And could you provide a label or description for property:P284 and property:P285 in English or some other language for those who cannot read Russian ?

Thank you. --Eric-92 (talk) 23:59, 12 March 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]

  • Yes, I didn't know. I've added descriptions. The purpose of property creation was to provide data for language description. E.g. as you can see on the right here and here. Thank you.--EUvin (talk) 00:16, 13 March 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Well, it is better. The properties are added to wd:List of properties#Added without discussion, we'll see what happens…
Why is property:P281 "overall quantity of speakers" of type string? It should be a number not yet available)? --Eric-92 (talk) 00:30, 13 March 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]
In property creation dialog i have not found the number type. There are "string", "mediafile", "element" options only.--EUvin (talk) 12:13, 13 March 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I am not sure if it will be possible to change the type of property:P281 when the number type is available: maybe this property should be deleted and created again later. See similar examples in wd:Property proposal/Pending. --Eric-92 (talk) 17:49, 13 March 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Thank you for your advice. For now, I will not change anything since I already done something without appropriate discussion. I hope, if number property type will be added, it will not be a problem to change/re-create the property.--EUvin (talk) 18:00, 13 March 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]


A property you created, Property:P280, is being proposed for deletion. Please visit the Properties for deletion page to discuss this proposal. Joshbaumgartner (talk) 05:51, 12 May 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]

enwiktionary nattuvangamEdit

Would you please explain that why this link should be linked on nattuvangam (Q33125458)? Is there any reason that that link can't be handled by Cognate? --Liuxinyu970226 (talk) 15:13, 18 August 2017 (UTC)Reply[reply]

If you have strong reason to unlink, please do. I didn't find anything similar and thus linked the item. --EUvin (talk) 20:33, 18 August 2017 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Axel Martinius ErichsenEdit

Hello EUvin. In Q13461505 what is your source for Drammen being his birthplace? I know that he grew up there but yet have to find a source that writes about his actual birthplace. --Gereon K. (talk) 07:25, 22 August 2017 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I moved it from Russian wikipedia article and you're right, it doesn't seem to be properly supported by a source... Should we remove it, or set low ranking until any sources for birht place are found?--EUvin (talk) 09:40, 22 August 2017 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Since his granddaughter's blog post seems to be the only biographical information about his life and it does not particularly mention his birthplace we should rather remove it. --Gereon K. (talk) 20:18, 22 August 2017 (UTC)Reply[reply]
