Welcome to Wikidata, ElfjeTwaalfje!

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

Bromopropane vs C3H7BrEdit

Your argument makes sense. I will retain the older disambiguations. --Dcirovic (talk) 14:54, 5 February 2014 (UTC)

Merging itemsEdit

Hallo ElfjeTwaalfje,

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, -      - (Cycn/talk) 08:40, 6 February 2014 (UTC)

Dank je wel, ik had het al aangezet in mijn voorkeuren maar nog niet uitgebreid bestudeerd hoe het werkte. Handige gadget inderdaad! ElfjeTwaalfje (talk) 18:24, 7 February 2014 (UTC)
Ik heb zelf trouwens bijna altijd het vinkje aanstaan om het laagste nummer te bewaren. Daardoor verwijder ik soms het andere item dan dat je voorstelt. -      - (Cycn/talk) 10:33, 11 February 2014 (UTC)
Ik hanteer de reden op de help pagina: Once it has been determined that the items should be merged, one item is selected to be the recipient of the sitelinks and properties. This is usually the item that is used more often (possible indicators are links to the items or the number of sitelinks and statements it has). If you can't tell, best choose the one with the lowest Q####, as it is the oldest item.
Dus als er meer items staan op het hoger genummerde item, dan laat ik die staan en nomineer ik het laagste nummer. Maar dat lijkt me gewoon een kwestie van smaak. ElfjeTwaalfje (talk) 10:37, 11 February 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!

ElfjeTwaalfje, 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 @ irc.freenode.net. If you need access, you can flag someone down at @ irc.freenode.net. 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!

Hi! I tried to answer you on the rfd page, but it keeps being updated and I do not want to break something. Here is my answer:

Doublons avec Q139106, Q271588 et taille douce, j'ai fait les changements adequats. --Npy (talk) 23:03, 29 May 2014 (UTC)

no, mixes disambiguation with normal articles. Gigantic mess now :( ElfjeTwaalfje (talk) 17:14, 30 May 2014 (UTC)
Uh? I tried to be careful, this element only contained three entries. Can you point out my mistake? Sorry! --Npy (talk) 17:43, 30 May 2014 (UTC)
Rippitippi ElfjeTwaalfje Ok, I understand now, sorry, did not realize the disambiguation problem. However, Q1899412 is clearly a doobloon and I think my merges were ok. You may want to reconsider your reversal about Q1899412. Thanks!


Hello. This message is to inform you that persuant to Wikidata:Administrators#Losing adminship, your administrator access has been removed because you have not made at least five administrator/bureaucrat actions within the past six months. You are free to re-apply for adminship at Wikidata:Requests for permissions/Administrator at any time. Thank you for your service.--Jasper Deng (talk) 17:44, 1 April 2015 (UTC)


Hoi Elfje. When removing the links to the en-wiki disambiguations somehow the links to the genuine eo-wiki articles were removed as well. Thank you for fixing that. I think the reason was my faulty mouse that generated double clicks when pressing once. With my new mouse this problem should be solved. Cheers, --Gereon K. (talk) 08:05, 2 June 2015 (UTC)

I already assumed these were accidental, so no problem and my pleasure. ElfjeTwaalfje (talk) 12:26, 3 June 2015 (UTC)
