Welcome to Wikidata, JerryL2017!

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.

A descriptionEdit

Hi JerryL2017, thanks for working on descriptions. BTW, they generally wont include an article in English: [1]. Help:Descriptions probably mentions it.

Many thanks Jura, I hadn't spotted that, apologies. I will know for next time. I will also fix those I have just added an article to. Thanks again JerryL2017 (talk) 20:14, 5 December 2017 (UTC)

Member of the Royal SocietyEdit

Hello JerryL2017, about the Royal Society, in my opinion, there's no need to indicate twice that John Lubbock is a RS fellow ; either "member of", either "Award" should do, best regards, --Pierrette13 (talk) 07:44, 6 August 2018 (UTC)

  Pierrette13 So I agree that there shouldn't be both, in this case, but an FRS is very much an award.  You are nominated, you can't apply.  Membership of the Royal Society doesn't really mean anything, as I don't think you can't be a member and not a Fellow.
Hello Jerry, I agrre with Pierrette13. To state in WD that a person is fellow of RS and that he has, as award, to be fellow of RS, seems redundant. I suppose everybody knows that to be fellow of the RS is an honor. --Ferran Mir (talk) 09:17, 16 August 2018 (UTC)
Hello @JerryL2017, Ferran Mir:, I always indicate member of RS as an honor, I think it should remain in Honors and could disappear from "member of". Best regards, --Pierrette13 (talk) 09:43, 16 August 2018 (UTC)
Hello again @JerryL2017, Ferran Mir:, I forgot to tell you about one thing. Royal Society as an honor doesn't appear automatically in the infobox Biographie2 (have a look there Kathleen_Lonsdale on the French Wikipedia. It should in my opinion, as well as D Sc or MBE... Thank you for your attention, best regards, --Pierrette13 (talk) 09:57, 16 August 2018 (UTC)
