Welcome to Wikidata, GZWDer!

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! --Bill william compton (talk) 14:26, 28 March 2013 (UTC)

New empty itemsEdit

Hi, can you please stop creating empty items which only include 1 sitelink on Czech Wikipedia such as Q65214932? We are used to creating them manually (and add relevant information during that process). --Vojtěch Dostál (talk) 10:55, 9 July 2019 (UTC)

@Vojtěch Dostál: Does any people actively monitering Special:UnconnectedPages? In Dutch Wikipedia, there're people actively cleans up items without claims too.--GZWDer (talk) 11:00, 9 July 2019 (UTC)
Yes, a lot of people do that. Most items get created within one week. It is much more comfortable than going through a long list of 1500 items with cs sitelink but no claim :). Also, your bot created at least two duplicates (items on the given subject already existed) which I had to merge. --Vojtěch Dostál (talk) 11:03, 9 July 2019 (UTC)
@Vojtěch Dostál: Dutch Wikipedia people are pretty active linking up the unconnected pages to existing and new items, but there are still some backlog. In this case a bot will create a new item if the article is at least 28 days old and hasn't been edited for over 21 days. Someone from Czech Wikipedia should run a similar bot too (JAnDbot may did it, but I'm not sure), and watch the backlog it created. It's very suboptimal to leave a page unconnected for a long time.--GZWDer (talk) 11:11, 9 July 2019 (UTC)
Yes, JAnDbot does that after about a month which is an adequate time interval --Vojtěch Dostál (talk) 11:13, 9 July 2019 (UTC)
