Welcome to Wikidata, Eugene233!

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!


I notice you added [https://www.wikidata.org/w/index.php?title=Q26944798&curid=28836863&diff=491459772&oldid=449724246 this. While I applaud your effort, in this instance you are mistaken. There was no such thing as a "German" citizen until 22 July 1913, when the Reichs- und Staatsangehörigkeitsgesetz was passed. Prior to that, people were citizens of the various states which formed the German Empire, e.g. the Kingdom of Prussia.

I don't know when the concept of state citizenship was firmly established in other parts of the world. I just know that it happened gradually, and in some German states there was no legislature on it until the mid-19th century.

So please keep in mind that, no matter how "German" someone seems, the cannot have been German citizens if they died before July 22, 1913.

Edit: Same goes for this. South Korea was established in the 1950s. Jonathan Groß (talk) 11:02, 30 May 2017 (UTC)

Thanks very much for the insight Jonathan. All the directives will be taken with care. Eugene233 (talk) 21:49, 10 July 2017 (UTC)

Here you added the citizenship as Slovak for Kiss Árpád. This is wrong, he never had Slovak citizenship, only Hungarian and Romanian. He was born in 1916 in Pozsony that time a city of Hungary. After a time he moved to Cluj, Romania. Please, add only verified informations. Wikizoli (talk) 11:30, 14 July 2017 (UTC)

Thanks for the correction Wikizoli. It is noted. Eugene233 (talk) 06:46, 15 July 2017 (UTC)

Representation of Wikidata at the Wikimedia movement strategy processEdit

Hi Eugene233, I'm contacting you because I would like your support and your comments on my proposal to represent the Wikidata community at the Wikimedia movement strategy process. I'm contacting you in private because you are a member of the Wikidata Community User Group and I thought that this could be relevant for you.--Micru (talk) 17:43, 19 June 2018 (UTC)
