Welcome to Wikidata, Gamliel Fishkin!
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.
Hey, sorry about this, but I've had to delete your item on your userpage. A consensus in an RfC held that user pages shouldn't be considered notable. You're welcome, of course, to link your userpages the "old-fashioned" way (the bots won't stop you, either), and I believe there's some plan in the works for a sort of "global userpage", which was part of why we banned items on userpages. — PinkAmpers&(Je vous invite à me parler) 22:47, 7 March 2013 (UTC)
Bonvenon al Wikidata!Edit
Hallo Gamliel Fishkin,
If you were not already using it, you may want to check out the merge.js gadget for merging items. It has an option "Request deletion for extra items on RfD" to automatically nominate the page you are merging from for deletion. This way of nominating also makes it easier for the admins to process such requests. For support and other options you can check the help page about merging.
Wikimedia language codesEdit
hrx is the valid Wikimedia language code (P424) for Hunsrik (Q304049). If you look at the property item, you will see that source website for the property (P1896) is https://doc.wikimedia.org/mediawiki-core/master/php/Names_8php_source.html which has the line:
'hrx' => 'Hunsrik', # Riograndenser Hunsrückisch
Additionally, Wikimedia language code (Q21468732) has described at URL (P973) https://gerrit.wikimedia.org/g/mediawiki/core/+/master/languages/data/Names.php (and other mirrors of this file) where it's also present.
hrx is also listed as a valid language in the API docs: https://www.wikidata.org/w/api.php?action=help&modules=wbgetentities (scroll down to "languages").
Even though Wikimedia language code (P424) creates a link to a version of Wikipedia using the code, it does not have to be valid. You can see this in some other languages (e.g: Awadhi (Q29579)), and also in the special language codes (the ones for undetermined language (Q22282914), etc). It looks like there has been some discussion of removing the link for this reason: Property talk:P424#target_link
