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! --Tobias1984 (talk) 12:08, 8 September 2013 (UTC)

Protection against creation on Ivan A. Krestinin’s user pageEdit

Hi! The creation and deletion of User:Ivan A. Krestinin removed the protection against recreation, so currently I could create the user page even as an anon. Please protect it against creation again. Formerly it was semi-protected, but as Ivan doesn’t seem to plan to create a user page ever, maybe it could get even full protection (if he explicitly agrees to it). The full protection can be lifted any time if he changes his mind. —Tacsipacsi (talk) 14:41, 1 January 2021 (UTC)

@Tacsipacsi:   Done; I've informed Ivan here. Happy 2021, --Epìdosis 14:47, 1 January 2021 (UTC)

Christian Huber (Q97124197)Edit

Could you have another look at Christian Huber (Q97124197)? I’m pretty sure that after your edits it’s a conflated (French physician vs. Swiss politician – SUDOC is conflated as well). --Emu (talk) 22:13, 2 January 2021 (UTC)

@Emu: Yes, another look was necessary; in fact GND wasn't pertinent and RERO was about the politician; BNF and SUDOC seem about the physician, although the date of birth 1944 may be due to a confusion with the politician, as far as I understand. Happy 2021, --Epìdosis 08:39, 3 January 2021 (UTC)
Please have another look at Christian Huber (Q97124197). As you can see by the first edit (and many references), the item was taylor-made by me for GND 1029834385, so it’s the pinnacle of pertinence ;-) Happy 2021! --Emu (talk) 09:54, 3 January 2021 (UTC)
@Emu: Wow, the attention is never enough! So, I think we can distinguish three people: the politician Christian Huber (Q2081906), surely born in 1944; the researcher Christian Huber (Q97124197); the physician Christian Huber (Q104638974), presumably born in 1944 (if BNF and SUDOC aren't wrong). Hopefully no other ones ... --Epìdosis 11:42, 3 January 2021 (UTC)

URL di formattazione di un proprietà è stato cambiatoEdit

Ciao Epì! Ho notato che l'URL di una proprità haveva cambiato e ho provato a aggiornarlo. Gli esempi della Talk page l'hanno preso in conto, ma da gli elementi stessi solo uno sembre di esserci aggiornato. Serve solo più tempo o c'è una cosa che non ho fatto bene? Grazie! --Jahl de Vautban (talk) 12:37, 6 January 2021 (UTC)

@Jahl de Vautban: Sì, di solito servono circa 24 o 48 ore. Buon wiki, --Epìdosis 12:40, 6 January 2021 (UTC)

please refrain from editing or moving my comments on project chat or talk pagesEdit

Thanks. --- Jura 16:56, 10 January 2021 (UTC)

Problemi con formato del codice VIAFEdit

Ciao, ho dei problemi a inserire in Q18945390 i codici VIAF (ciascuno, comunque dovrebbe essere sempre la stessa persona). Hai idea di come mai? Grazie in anticipo. --Marco Chemello (BEIC) (talk) 14:04, 11 January 2021 (UTC)

@Marco Chemello (BEIC):   Done, non ho avuto problemi nell'inserimento degli ID, non riesco a capire quale potesse essere il problema. --Epìdosis 14:20, 11 January 2021 (UTC)
Grazie! Mi è già capitato (qualche problema su qualche gadget?). --Marco Chemello (BEIC) (talk) 14:29, 11 January 2021 (UTC)
@Marco Chemello (BEIC): Credo sempre User:1Veertje/identifierInput.js, penso dovresti disattivarlo anche su questo account. --Epìdosis 14:31, 11 January 2021 (UTC)

Due schede wikidata. Unirle oppure lasciarle separate?Edit

Buon giorno. Ti sottopongo un piccolo problema che riguarda due schede wikidata (Q51129111) e (Q23017555). Hanno identico argomento :Collezione di autoritratti agli Uffizi. Tuttavia la prima scheda è collegata a Commons [Category:Portrait paintings in the Uffizi Gallery] (categoria errata) e la seconda a Commons [Self-portraits in the Uffizi Gallery] (categoria corretta). La prima scheda fa riferimento ad un articolo su it.wiki che è completo di introduzione dettagliata, note, bibliografia ecc. Ha anche una lunga discussione. Oltre agli autoritratti dipinti prende in considerazione anche quelli a disegno o scolpiti. La seconda invece, su en.wiiki, è una lista che prende i dati da wikidata, ha due scempie note e si occupa unicamente di dipinti. Quindi, se identico (o quasi) è l'argomento, la struttura delle due pagine è totalmente differente. Bisogna unire le due schede e utilizzare un unico collegamento a Commons (quello degli autoritratti), oppure tenere separate le due schede e lasciare solamente ad una il collegamento a Commons? Del resto, se oggi voglio fare una pagina con i ritratti dipinti agli Uffizi, mi manca il collegamento alla relativa categoria di Commons. Ti prego quindi di aiutarmi e di risolvere tu stesso il problema, nel modo che ritieni più opportuno. Grazie.--Fausta Samaritani (talk) 15:48, 15 January 2021 (UTC)

@Fausta Samaritani: Sistemato, credo che così possa andare. Grazie mille per la segnalazione e buon inizio d'anno, --Epìdosis 16:11, 15 January 2021 (UTC)
Perfetto, grazie.--Fausta Samaritani (talk) 17:53, 15 January 2021 (UTC)

Giancarlo SusiniEdit

Ciao, su Wikipedia ho creato la voce enciclopedica di Giancarlo Susini. Poi sono andato a creare il record qui su Wikidata. Con mia sorpresa ho scoperto che c'è già: Giancarlo Susini! Ho voluto aggiungere "it" nel campo "Wikipedia", ma sembra che questo campo sia bloccato. Mi puoi aiutare? Grazie, --Sentruper (talk) 16:10, 15 January 2021 (UTC)

@Sentruper: Vedo che nel frattempo @Burgundo: mi ha preceduto ;-) strano come problema, comunque, al limite puoi provare da un altro browser e sicuramente scrivimi se si ripresenta. Ho comunque colto l'occasione per arricchire l'elemento. A presto, --Epìdosis 16:15, 15 January 2021 (UTC)
P.S. Dimenticavo la cosa più importante: buon compleanno di Wikipedia e grazie per l'ottima voce che hai creato! --Epìdosis 16:18, 15 January 2021 (UTC)

CLEdit

Ciao Epi, mi puoi dare conferma di questa modifica? Da dove ti risulta essere il suo blog ufficiale? --.avgas 17:55, 18 January 2021 (UTC)

@.avgas: Risultava esserlo all'8 febbraio 2020, quando l'ho trasferito da it.wiki; ora ho inserito l'URL archiviato, secondo la prassi in questi casi. Grazie per la segnalazione! --Epìdosis 18:01, 18 January 2021 (UTC)
Risultava esserlo da dove? --.avgas 18:09, 18 January 2021 (UTC)
@.avgas: Direi da https://www.blogger.com/profile/08631856431317807505. --Epìdosis 18:13, 18 January 2021 (UTC)
È quel che mi serviva, grazie! --.avgas 00:27, 19 January 2021 (UTC)

ProposalEdit

Hi Epìdosis,

Would you create this. If you click, I can do the remaining steps. --- Jura 09:19, 21 January 2021 (UTC)

@Jura1:   Done applicable 'stated in' value (P9073) and thanks for proposing, it seems a very good idea! --Epìdosis 09:23, 21 January 2021 (UTC)
Also this (for once, I proposed external-id one). --- Jura 14:02, 23 January 2021 (UTC)
@Jura1:   Done Red Cross FDRS ID (P9079). --Epìdosis 14:09, 23 January 2021 (UTC)

Open questionEdit

Hi Epìdosis,

Somehow we should try to solve the potential issue with P5034. The somewhat vague comments on project chat suggest that there is non-minor problem, but it's still unclear to me what that is. Possibly it's obvious to Korean speakers. From past experience, large-scale imports in Latin script data from VIAF have been problematic, so I doubt this necessarily works well for Korean. If a substantial part of the data is indeed problematic, I'd suggest to undo/delete it rather than let it linger. Maybe we/you can get better pointers to which parts didn't work out. I don't think we should rely on native speakers fixing them manually one-by-one (including in MxM). --- Jura 11:31, 22 January 2021 (UTC)

@Jura1: Hi! I agree, it is a relevant problem. However, as Christian140 pointed out in the Project chat, any solution based only on SPARQL queries (e.g. removing all VIAFs and NLKs in items having VIAF and NLK as only identifiers) risks to remove a high number of correct statements added by native speakers, so would be (reasonably) unpopular as well as the current situation. The absence of an efficient query service considering also the history of the items is really unfortunate. However, something can probably be done: starting from
SELECT ?item ?nlk ?viaf
WHERE {
  ?item wdt:P5034 ?nlk . 
  ?item wdt:P214 ?viaf . 
}

Try it!

we can make a comparison between these results and the batches that in November 2019 added VIAFs on the basis of VIAF itself, and then drastically remove all VIAF ID (P214) which were added in 2019 and all National Library of Korea ID (P5034) present in the same items, also disconnecting these NLKs from MnM through some automatic way found by Bargioni. This would obviously remove a relevant amount of statements which were imported from correct VIAF clusters, but anyway would solve all the problems of 2019 import. Would you agree? Thanks, --Epìdosis 11:47, 22 January 2021 (UTC)
I think it should be possible to identify each batch and work by these. Adding identifiers to existing items with many other identifiers can be more problematic than creating new items that only have that identifier and VIAF (except a risk of duplicates). Once in a while, it happens that a series of QS edits of mine goes wrong and I can't easily determine which parts are correct, even if a large part of it may be. In these cases, I usually just delete all and re-add correct parts later. --- Jura 12:32, 22 January 2021 (UTC)
@Jura1: So I think I and Bargioni will proceed in the above way in the following weeks. --Epìdosis 13:31, 22 January 2021 (UTC)

Lombardia Beni Culturali: nuova proprietàEdit

Ciao! Mi chiedevo se è possibile aggiungere una proprietà al record in oggetto.
Ho fatto un piccolo incremento alla voce Longanesi su Wikipedia.
Quando ho cercato informazioni in rete, ho trovato questa pagina:

http://www.lombardiabeniculturali.it/archivi/soggetti-produttori/ente/MIDB001393/

È il record di un database!
Ho controllato se esiste già su Wikidata. Esiste: la pagina è questa.
Su Wikidata LombardiaBeniCulturali ha diverse proprietà:

  • LombardiaBeniCulturali artword
  • LombardiaBeniCulturali artwork author
  • LombardiaBeniCulturali architecture author
  • LombardiaBeniCulturali toponym
  • LombardiaBeniCulturali building
  • LombardiaBeniCulturali institution

Però "soggetti-produttori" manca. Si potrebbe creare questo nuovo identificatore? --Sentruper (talk) 23:31, 23 January 2021 (UTC)

@Sentruper: Ciao! Qualunque utente può proporre nuove proprietà in Wikidata:Property proposal; tra questi video c'è un mio tutorial relativo a come compilare il modulo; le proprietà vengono generalmente create dopo una settimana o due di discussione. Ho proposto la proprietà in questione qui. --Epìdosis 09:17, 24 January 2021 (UTC)
Rapido ed efficiente. Grazie! --Sentruper (talk) 15:43, 24 January 2021 (UTC)

Jean-Joseph MounierEdit

Ciao Epìdosis. Non capisco perche hai tolto la fonte Les Préfets du 11 ventôse an VIII au 4 septembre 1870 (Q50327918) usata per le date ni nascita et di morto su Jean Joseph Mounier (Q1340801). Per caso è nota di non essere esatta ? --Jahl de Vautban (talk) 14:02, 25 January 2021 (UTC)

@Jahl de Vautban: Ciao! Ho quasi finito di fare una rimozione massiva delle note che usavano Premiers préfets ID (P4944) per i motivi evidenziati in Topic:W24aea02b5u3daox, tra qualche minuto apro una discussione generale in merito. Quella singola nota (forse l'unica che io abbia incontrato che avesse anche retrieved (P813), che non avevo notato; ora l'ho ripristinata) è corretta, ma come puoi vedere l'ID presente in Premiers préfets ID (P4944) è errato - o meglio, è probabilmente diventato errato in un punto non ricostruibile del tempo, visto che il sito sembra non assegnare ID permanenti. Per evitare che restino riferimenti senza retrieved (P813) a ID che nel frattempo si sono trasformati in persone diverse, sto appunto facendo una rimozione massiva. Appena apro la discussione te la segnalo. A tra poco, --Epìdosis 15:04, 25 January 2021 (UTC)
Grazie per la risposta! Infatto l'avevo aggiunto io alcuni giorni fa (al presento sto transferendo tutti le data di Wikisource francese su Wikidata, provando anche a migliora le P569 e 570 quando posso); non riesco a capire però come mai non ho cambiato l'ID mentre mi ero accorto che non era giusto… --Jahl de Vautban (talk) 15:43, 25 January 2021 (UTC)

Universal Code of Conduct consultationEdit

Hello, I am writing to you to personally invite you to the ongoing consultation about the new Wikimedia movement's Universal Code of Conduct. Your feedback as an admin and experienced user is of great value for us, and we are extremely interested in hearing your say.

You might express your opinion at any given time and in any way you may consider useful (for example, publicly at the consultation page or on my talk page, or privately via email). If you wish or feel more comfortable, we can also set up an online meeting in order to discuss your opinions and ideas.

Please remember that there is no such thing as a “stupid opinion” or “worthless idea”, so be bold and feel free to express yourself. :) Also, if you wish you can help us involving other users you know and that you think might be interested in having their say in this!

Hope to hear from you soon! --Sannita (WMF) (talk) 17:16, 29 January 2021 (UTC)

DeletingEdit

Hello Epìdosis! Why did you delete these? [1], [2]? Thanks Palotabarát (talk) 21:38, 29 January 2021 (UTC)

Hello @Palotabarát:! The usage of described at URL (P973) (as well as described by source (P1343)) is superfluous when the URL has a corresponding ID on Wikidata, in this case COURAGE ID (P7037), which I have just added to the items; the usage of IDs, when present (if not present, new ones can be proposed) is very much preferrable as it allows queries and checks on constraint violations. Ask me if you have any doubt. Good night, --Epìdosis 21:48, 29 January 2021 (UTC)
Oh thanks, I didn't know the COURAGE ID. I understand, ok. Palotabarát (talk) 08:56, 30 January 2021 (UTC)

Help property proposalEdit

Hi Epìdosis, a few weeks ago I added a new property proposal: Wikidata:Property_proposal/IFLA_value_vocabularies_ID. I changed something based on the suggestions, there are supporting comments, the status has been changed to "ready", but it hasn't been created yet. What do you think about it? Thanks a lot --LiaFla (talk) 10:13, 1 February 2021 (UTC)

@LiaFla: Ciao, non vedo nessun problema nella proposta. Semplicemente, le proprietà pronte per la creazione ("Ready") vengono messe in Category:Properties ready for creation (che ha tipicamente una coda di varie decine di proprietà) e gradualmente create da creatori di proprietà o amministratori di buona volontà, generalmente entro una settimana da quando la proprietà viene marcata come "Ready". Quindi è soltanto questione di tempo; se ne trovo, magari la creo io stesso a breve. Buon wiki, --Epìdosis 10:38, 1 February 2021 (UTC)
@Epìdosis: Mi era venuto il dubbio, grazie per il chiarimento e per la disponibilità :) --LiaFla (talk) 13:55, 1 February 2021 (UTC)

Take care for this!Edit

Hello Epidosis,

please could you take a look at this : https://cy.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eva_Strautmann and keep care for this? What is right what is wrong. Thank you! The Readers

URL Comuni italianiEdit

Ciao e ben trovato, avrei bisogno di un chiarimento. Ho tentato di modificare l'URL del comune di Rocca d'Evandro ove per mero errore è inserito l'URL di un altro comune (Rocca Imperiale). A quanto pare, però, l'URL errato non può essere cancellato, ma soltanto archiviato. Eppure a mio modesto avviso un URL errato va cancellato, non certamente archiviato. C'è un modo per farlo? Grazie in anticipo per la disponibilità (URL corretto: http://www.comuneroccadevandro.it).-- 3knolls (talk) 11:57, 16 February 2021 (UTC)

@3knolls: Ciao, ho appena   sistemato. Probabilmente ti è comparso un messaggio di errore arancione o rossastro che ti consigliava di non rimuovere l'URL ma di archiviarlo; tuttavia, nel caso in cui tu clicchi nuovamente su "pubblica" (puoi fare dei tentativi in altri elementi senza problemi), ignorando il messaggio, la tua modifica verrà effettivamente salvata. Ovvio è che il messaggio è pensato per i casi in cui un sito valido sia defunto, non per i casi in cui sia necessario modificare un sito che non è mai stato valido; se il sito non è mai stato valido, è giustissimo operare la sostituzione. Per qualunque dubbio o problema non esitare a contattarmi. Buona serata, --Epìdosis 17:51, 16 February 2021 (UTC)

Elemento da cancellareEdit

Ciao! Buona domenica! Ci sarebbe da cancellare l'elemento "Pietro Paolo Mazzicchi (Q27999353)": non è mai esistito un vescovo "Pietro Paolo Mazzicchi", nato il 12 marzo 1779 e morto il 7 gennaio 1857. --FeltriaUrbsPicta (talk) 10:46, 21 February 2021 (UTC)

@FeltriaUrbsPicta:   Done, grazie per la segnalazione. --Epìdosis 10:49, 21 February 2021 (UTC)

[WMF Board of Trustees - Call for feedback: Community Board seats] Meetings with the Wikidata communityEdit

The Wikimedia Foundation Board of Trustees is organizing a call for feedback about community selection processes between February 1 and March 14. While the Wikimedia Foundation and the movement have grown about five times in the past ten years, the Board’s structure and processes have remained basically the same. As the Board is designed today, we have a problem of capacity, performance, and lack of representation of the movement’s diversity. Our current processes to select individual volunteer and affiliate seats have some limitations. Direct elections tend to favor candidates from the leading language communities, regardless of how relevant their skills and experience might be in serving as a Board member, or contributing to the ability of the Board to perform its specific responsibilities. It is also a fact that the current processes have favored volunteers from North America and Western Europe. In the upcoming months, we need to renew three community seats and appoint three more community members in the new seats. This call for feedback is to see what processes can we all collaboratively design to promote and choose candidates that represent our movement and are prepared with the experience, skills, and insight to perform as trustees?

In this regard, two rounds of feedback meetings are being hosted to collect feedback from the Wikidata community. Two rounds are being hosted with the same agenda, to accomodate people from various time zones across the globe. We will be discussing ideas proposed by the Board and the community to address the above mentioned problems. Please sign-up according to whatever is most comfortable to you. You are welcome to participate in both as well!

Also, please share this with other volunteers who might be interested in this. Let me know if you have any questions. KCVelaga (WMF), 14:32, 21 February 2021 (UTC)

VandalismEdit

Hi. Can you block this vandal? He insists on deleting true informations. I have to undo his changes every time. - Aybeg (talk) 09:28, 23 February 2021 (UTC)

AvvisoEdit

Salve Epìdosis, vorrei chiederle se potrebbe levare la semi-protection sulla pagina di LeBron James (italiano) perché devo eliminare una voce correlata che si trova già su note. Un cordiale saluto --YouKnow23 (talk) 10:43, 24 February 2021 (UTC)

@YouKnow23: Ciao, mi pare che la semiprotezione di LeBron James (Q36159) sia effettivamente giustificata da un'ampia serie di passati vandalismi, quindi non la rimuoverei. Se vuoi, comunque, puoi dirmi la modifica da apportare, così la posso fare io stesso. Grazie, --Epìdosis 13:32, 24 February 2021 (UTC)

Menander's playsEdit

I've found several of Menander's plays that did not have data items, and am adding data for the most recent Loeb Classical Library editions of his plays. There do not seem to be any data items for Loeb Classical Library publications, so it might be useful to have examples somewhere for contributors to follow as a model. The ones I have done are Menander, Volume I (Q105702581) and Menander, Volume II (Q105702691). I do not know the best place to list these as examples for other Classicists, but I thought you might. They are useful because they are bitexts, with an edition of the Greek parallel with an English translation on facing pages, so bibliographic info can be pulled for articles, --EncycloPetey (talk) 21:14, 28 February 2021 (UTC)

@EncycloPetey: Hi! Thanks for reporting me! I have added the two items to the homepage of Wikidata:WikiProject Ancient Greece and Wikidata:WikiProject Ancient Rome, so probably most Classicists will notice them. Bye, --Epìdosis 21:24, 28 February 2021 (UTC)

P9256 - Diccionari de la traducció catalanaEdit

Anyway there are some strange things in this site:

--Gerwoman (talk) 17:49, 5 March 2021 (UTC)

@Gerwoman: True, I had noticed them, unfortunately. Some numbers go to the same person, this is strange. I hadn't noticed that the IDs function also using the number only, we could maybe restrict the ID only to the number. --Epìdosis 17:51, 5 March 2021 (UTC)
