Welcome to Wikidata, Emeritus!

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! Taketa

Wikidata:Country subdivision task force/BrazilEdit

Ich habe dort auf der Seite einige Ergänzungen vorgenommen, vor allem zu den Municípios.

Am Beispiel Acre könnte ich versuchen, die benötigten zusätzlichen Eigenschaften aufzulisten. (Und ehrlich gesagt: Der Krempel ist mir zu kompliziert, da verliert man schon beim Anschauen die Lust mitzumachen). --Emeritus (talk) 00:14, 2 July 2014 (UTC)


Hi Emeritus. 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. Regards, Jianhui67 talkcontribs 05:19, 3 August 2014 (UTC)

Thank you, I use the gadget in normal cases, but actually it's not fitting my working flow (major change in cattree de:WP for arts categories), there are mostly two items to merge into a third one. I'll keep merge.js in mind. --Emeritus (talk) 17:03, 3 August 2014 (UTC)
