Logo of Wikidata

Welcome to Wikidata, Fixer88!

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, don't hesitate to ask on Project chat. 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.

Babel edit

Babel lets you view and edit more than one language on Wikidata. Just add e.g.{{#babel:de-N|en-3|es-1|fr-2|nl-3|it-4|da-0}} to your user page. --Tobias1984 (talk) 19:50, 21 August 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Merging edit

Hi, Fixer88, good on you for merging – just don't forget to RFD the empty items; you can set the tool to do that for you, too. Best, Littledogboy (talk) 00:09, 28 August 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]

And also while merging try to keep the lower Qid item. That means merge the higher one with lower one as it is likely that lower Qid item is older and more comprehensive edit history. Thank you for your good work.--Vyom25 (talk) 14:08, 12 September 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Merging items edit

Hallo Fixer88,

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.

Could you please have another look at this tool, as it would make it easier to process your merges and I find that yours I don't need to check, as they're always valid ones. -      - (Cycn/talk) 06:48, 11 July 2014 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Strange, I just saw you are using it, but I need to process them manually. I will have a look into that, but it seems not to be something you can do anything about. Sorry for bothering you, keep up the good work! -      - (Cycn/talk) 06:52, 11 July 2014 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Have you considered to check the box to create a redirect in stead of to do a request for deletion? Kind regards, Lymantria (talk) 06:49, 6 November 2014 (UTC)Reply[reply]

comarca of Cantabria (Q5150551) edit

Please don't reuse item ids, just create a new one. Multichill (talk) 22:55, 4 December 2014 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Yes please don't do it. I have fixes 5 of the items that you have done this to. We will now also log any cases of redirect removal! ·addshore· talk to me! 19:52, 30 January 2015 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I got it already. I shall never do that again. Fixer88 (talk) 14:12, 22 May 2017 (UTC)Reply[reply]

merge edit

Hi! Can you merge Drone forces major UK airport, Gatwick, to shut and Gatwick Airport drone incident, which I think you created, please, since they are on the same topic? Qwerty number1 (talk) 16:42, 27 December 2018 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Template edit


Can you create and upload simple:Template:Cities in Azerbaijan in English Wikipedia (and optional, in Scots Wikipedia)?

The English Wikipedia version of this template doesn't actually exist.

Because I live in Turkey where Wikipedia is banned and blocked, it is off limits for us.
