Welcome to Wikidata, Jkass615!

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! --Tobias1984 (talk) 16:59, 10 October 2015 (UTC)

BabelEdit

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. With the same language codes you can add links to your userpage on Wikipedia e.g. de:User:User123. --Tobias1984 (talk) 16:59, 10 October 2015 (UTC)

ListsEdit

I created the first list here: Wikidata:WikiProject Baseball/Lists/List of baseball teams. A lot of the teams are missing the statement country (P17), that is why they are sorted under "Misc". Home venues are also missing for many teams. Probably it will require to create new items for all those stadiums. --Tobias1984 (talk) 18:15, 13 October 2015 (UTC)

If you want to add more detail to the items in the list you need to add it to the item of the team. Go to for example Connecticut Tigers (Q5161632) and add statements. For example you can press on "add" to add a statement. Choose the property "home venue" and then type "senator thomas j. dodd memorial stadium". Then the next time the list is updated, the new information will appear in the list! --Tobias1984 (talk) 16:07, 19 October 2015 (UTC)
