Welcome to Wikidata, Jc3s5h!

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.

  1. constraints are automatically displayed in the talk pages. I'm going to add SPARQL queries if possible.
  2. see [1].

Thanks. The constraint doesn't seem to be working right now. Jc3s5h (talk) 17:04, 13 July 2017 (UTC)

Please correctEdit

The entities you created using instance of = political candidate (like that one). Instance of is not used like that. If all, they should be instance of human being, and you should use occupation, and other properties.--Zeroth (talk) 14:58, 9 December 2018 (UTC)

Done. Jc3s5h (talk) 18:42, 9 December 2018 (UTC)

Celestial coordinates of Andromeda Galaxy (Q2469)Edit


Could you elaborate why you removed the celestial coordinates of Andromeda Galaxy (Q2469)? (this removal Special:Diff/867297467). True the representation format was not ideal but the data itself seems correct to me.

Cdlt, VIGNERON (talk) 10:39, 27 February 2019 (UTC)

The coordinate SYSTEM is as much a part of the coordinates as the numbers. The property coordinate location (P625) is always, according to the property description, {{w:World Geodetic System|WGS84}}. The value, 10°41'5.255"N, 41°16'8.634"E, is in Ethiopia, not the Andromeda Galaxy. Jc3s5h (talk) 17:25, 27 February 2019 (UTC)

Did you see that I explicity specified that the coordinates was on celestial sphere (Q12134) and not on Earth (Q2)? (look at the diff!) And no, the coordinates on Wikidata are not always on WGS84, this is false. The description of coordinate location (P625) is wrong, this property is already used 7033 times on globes that are not Earth.
I do believe that this statement was correct and I see no reason why you removed it.
Cheers, VIGNERON (talk) 18:17, 27 February 2019 (UTC)
I reject the notion that you can redefine a property by adding stuff. Every pair of coordinates using this property that isn't WGS84 is false and should be deleted. Jc3s5h (talk) 12:47, 28 February 2019 (UTC)
I'm not redefining this property, it is how it is used for years but a lot of different people. But ok, I will start a discussion on the talk page of the porperty to make it clear. Cdlt, VIGNERON (talk) 14:06, 28 February 2019 (UTC)

Reverting my changeEdit

Hi Jc3s5h, you just reverted my change to proleptic Julian calendar (Q1985786), but I made it because in proleptic Gregorian calendar (Q1985727), there is a statement saying it's the opposite of proleptic Julian calendar (Q1985786). So either we put back my change, or we remove the opposite in the other element… --Antoine2711 (talk) 04:02, 23 April 2019 (UTC)

The proleptic Gregorian calendar is not the opposite of the proleptic Julian calendar, and the proleptic Julian calendar is not the opposite of the proleptic Gregorian calendar. This is because, if one wanted to designate a certain day but did not wish to use, for example, the proleptic Gregorian calendar, one would have several choices, such as the Julian day (Q14267), the Roman calendar (Q200966), Egyptian calendar (Q254101), etc. Also, the two calendars are not opposed to each other, in the sense that good is the opposite of evil, operational is the opposite of broken, etc. Jc3s5h (talk) 14:42, 23 April 2019 (UTC)
So, I went, and I remove the opposite of (P461) from proleptic Gregorian calendar (Q1985727), like you said. Let see if someone revert that! Regards, --Antoine2711 (talk) 18:25, 6 May 2019 (UTC)

Johann Sebastian Bach (Q1339)Edit

Hi Jc3s5h! you reverted Q1339|oldid=prev&diff=993923959}! It was added with the Authority Control tool. Regards

Call for participation in the interview study with Wikidata editorsEdit

Dear Jc3s5h,

I hope you are doing good,

I am Kholoud, a researcher at King’s College London, and I work on a project as part of my PhD research that develops a personalized recommendation system to suggest Wikidata items for the editors based on their interests and preferences. I am collaborating on this project with Elena Simperl and Miaojing Shi.

I would love to talk with you to know about your current ways to choose the items you work on in Wikidata and understand the factors that might influence such a decision. Your cooperation will give us valuable insights into building a recommender system that can help improve your editing experience.

Participation is completely voluntary. You have the option to withdraw at any time. Your data will be processed under the terms of UK data protection law (including the UK General Data Protection Regulation (UK GDPR) and the Data Protection Act 2018). The information and data that you provide will remain confidential; it will only be stored on the password-protected computer of the researchers. We will use the results anonymized to provide insights into the practices of the editors in item selection processes for editing and publish the results of the study to a research venue. If you decide to take part, we will ask you to sign a consent form, and you will be given a copy of this consent form to keep.

If you’re interested in participating and have 15-20 minutes to chat (I promise to keep the time!), please either contact me at kholoudsaa@gmail.com or use this form https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSdmmFHaiB20nK14wrQJgfrA18PtmdagyeRib3xGtvzkdn3Lgw/viewform?usp=sf_link with your choice of the times that work for you.

I’ll follow up with you to figure out what method is the best way for us to connect.

Please contact me using the email mentioned above if you have any questions or require more information about this project.

Thank you for considering taking part in this research.
