Welcome to Wikidata, Färber!

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!

Bad ID numbersEdit

Hello. You seem to have incorrect ID information for many movies and celebrities. For example, you are adding things as Rotten Tomatoes ID (P1258) that seem to be for IMDb ID (P345). These are all bad links:

Also, some of the German Wikipedia articles have the wrong Rotten Tomatoes ID (P1258) for movies. I have corrected many that duplicate other movies at Wikidata:Database reports/Constraint violations/P1258, but I can't easily catch others that may be wrong. Each of these were wrong for one film; I traced the errors back to German Wikipedia and corrected them:

It appears that each editor should check the ID on the correct website before trusting ID numbers from German Wikipedia. --Closeapple (talk) 08:00, 9 November 2014 (UTC)

That was only coping the id's to wikidata. Sorry for inconvenience. A script was running over the rottentomatoe links and the result was this list. Fixing all the entries will take a while. So next time I will do such steps in another order. Regards.--Färber (talk) 05:04, 10 November 2014 (UTC)

US Congress Bio identifierEdit

Hi, I noticed that you did some work with the US Congress Bio identifier. I have created a list of wikidata items with that identifier that don't have German articles here. I don't know if the German wikipedia has something similar to en:Wikipedia:WikiProject U.S. Congress that might be interested in this list. --Bamyers99 (talk) 00:23, 15 August 2015 (UTC)

  1. I processed the articles in this maintenance list, which contains pages where the the template Kongressbio is used, but where the ID is missing in wikidata.
  2. I don't know a special project about the U.S. Congress. There is only the project United States.
  3. I inserted your list to the talk page of the project. May be someone will use it.
Regards. --Färber (talk) 08:42, 15 August 2015 (UTC)


filmography (P1283) shouldn't be used for the films themselves. Please see the property talk page. Sjoerd de Bruin (talk) 11:26, 24 September 2015 (UTC)

Invitation to Wikidata user studyEdit

Dear Färber,
I am a researcher of the Web and Internet Science group of the University of Southampton.
Together with a group of other researchers from the same University, we are currently conducting a research aiming to discover how newcomers become full participants into the Wikidata community. We are interested in understanding how the usage of tools, the relationships with the community, and the knowledge and application of policy norms change from users' first approach to Wikidata to their full integration as fully active participants.
This study will take place as an interview, either by videotelephony, e.g. Skype, phone, or e-mail, according to the preference of the interviewees. The time required to answer all the questions will likely be about an hour. Further information can be found on the Research Project Page Becoming Wikidatians: evolution of participation in a collaborative structured knowledge base.
Any data collected will be treated in the strictest confidentiality, no personal information will be processed for the purpose of the research. The study, which has submission number 20117, has received ethical approval following the University of Southampton guidelines.
We aim at gathering about 20 participants, chosen among experienced Wikidata users who authored a large number of contributions.
Should you be interested in taking part or wish to receive further information, you can contact us by writing to the e-mail address ap1a14+wikidata_user_study@ecs.soton.ac.uk.
Thank you very much, your help will be much appreciated!

Hallo Färber, bitte als Discogs-Künstler-ID ausschließlich die numerische ID eingeben, siehe auch Spezfikation auf Property_talk:P1953 (Erlaubte Werte [1-9][0-9]*) / Formatierung: Der Wert muss nach diesem Muster formatiert sein (PCRE-Syntax: [1-9][0-9]*). Andernfalls werden diese unter "Format violations" auf der Seite "Constraint violations" gelistet ([1]). Fehlerhaft waren beispielsweise [2][3][4] Vielen Dank! --M2k~dewiki (talk) 17:06, 10 June 2016 (UTC)

Eine der vielen Vorteile des Harvester Tools ist, dass diverse Constraint Violations (falsches Format, ID bereits in anderem Wikidata-Objekt in Verwendung, usw.) bereits vor dem Import auffallen (z.B. bei einem "Demo"-Durchlauf ohne noch Änderungen durchzuführen) und solche Einträge erst gar nicht importiert werden. Die Fehler können dann im Artikel korrigiert werden, anschließend kann ein Import der korrigierten Artikel erfolgen. --M2k~dewiki (talk) 17:14, 10 June 2016 (UTC)

Wittlich WappenEdit

Ja dieses Bild ist sehr ähnlich. Wenn Sie in Deutsches Wikipedia oder Englisches Wikipedia das haben möchten, ist OK. Aber für Spanisches Wikipedia mag ich lieber die anderes Bild und Wikidata ist im Verbindung mit Spanisches Wikipedia. Es ist schöner und heraldisch recht. Das anderes Bild ist komisch, gar nichts heraldisch. Jemand hat das modernisch gemacht ohne Erfolg. --Marco Craso (talk) 20:59, 10 October 2016 (UTC)

In Wikidata muss die ähnlichste Version stehen. Wenn die spanische Wikipedia eine Ausnahme machen will, dann muss sie das für sich alleine tun und nicht in Wikidata eintragen.--Färber (talk) 21:02, 10 October 2016 (UTC)
Sie verstehen nicht. Das muss heraldisch sein. Dieses Rathaus version ist nur ein bisschen modernisiert, so sieht cool vielleicht aus für jemand ohne Geschmack, aber das anderes Bild ist das richtige. --Marco Craso (talk) 21:05, 10 October 2016 (UTC)
Was richtig ist, bestimmt die Stadt Wittlich, sonst niemand.--Färber (talk) 21:07, 10 October 2016 (UTC)
Eingentlich sind beide richtig. Aber man muss die beste Entscheidung treffen. Eine ist nur einfach modernisiert für eine Behörde oder Unternehmung und was anders ist eine version mehr tradizionell. In Wikipedia passt nur die traditionelle Version. --Marco Craso (talk) 21:17, 10 October 2016 (UTC)

Oh, Danke vielmals!!!Edit

Lieber Färber, ganz herzlichen Dank für die Anlegung des Wikidata-Blattes, das hab ich in all meinem Wust echt glatt vergessen. Herrje, sonst hab ich das bisher immer angelegt, nur heute ist es irgendwie zu heiß hier unterm Dach, da hab ich es echt vergessen. Wie toll, dass du so aufmerksam warst!!! Merci! --Gyanda (talk) 11:45, 5 June 2018 (UTC)


Maybe if you add VIAF and GND you could also add ISNI (Property:P213)? [5] 12:45, 16 June 2018 (UTC)

There are many identifiers and I could not add all. Sorry. We can hope, that a bot comes and insert these data. --Färber (talk) 15:54, 16 June 2018 (UTC)
ISNI is the most used in Wikidata after VIAF and based on an ISO standard, ISO 27729. Thousands of ISNI exist but have not been added to WD for years. Youtube became an ISNI Registration Agency in January 2018, http://www.isni.org/content/youtube-adopts-isni-id-artists-songwriters, i.e. the coverage of persons by ISNI will grow. 19:14, 16 June 2018 (UTC)
