Welcome to Wikidata, Kaldari!

Wikidata is a free knowledge base that you can edit! It can be read and edited by humans and machines alike, and you can help. Go to any item page now and add to this ever-growing database!
Need some help getting started? Here are some pages you can familarise yourself with:

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.

Hi. I've close your RfA as successful and granted you the admin permissions. Congratulations. Best regards. — MarcoAurelio (talk) 21:09, 16 November 2012 (UTC)

Admin confirmationsEdit

Hello! We are currently in the process of confirming all of the early admins, and you are scheduled to be confirmed between 12 - 16 February 2013. Please create an entry at Wikidata:Administrators/Confirm 2013/5, and see Wikidata:Administrators/Confirm 2013 for more details. Thank you and have a good day. --Jitrixis (talk) 20:37, 10 February 2013 (UTC)


Sorry, I thought the script would give me a chance to type reasonings into a box, instead it just tagged it as not done. (First time I've declined an RFD here), and I've now, a few edit conflicts later, managed to explain why I didn't delete that item. Courcelles (talk) 07:08, 24 April 2013 (UTC)

Just for your information: The three items Zygoballus quaternus are created by Lsjbot. A good place to complain about the actual wp articles is sv:Användardiskussion:Lsjbot/Projekt alla arter (and Lsj is well versed in English).

Bot without flagEdit

I have blocked you bot for 24 hour, too much edit without flag. When you have fixed the problem you can ask the unblock in Wikidata:Administrators' noticeboard. --ValterVB (talk) 20:01, 18 September 2016 (UTC)

@ValterVB: I figured out what the problem is. One of the 3 edits that the bot was making to each article did not have the flag set. I've corrected the bug. Kaldari (talk) 21:15, 18 September 2016 (UTC)
OK, I unlocked the Bot. --ValterVB (talk) 21:21, 18 September 2016 (UTC)

"No value" addedEdit

Hi Kaldari. Your bot made this edit to add a "No value" entry - why was that? Thanks. Mike Peel (talk) 19:10, 8 October 2016 (UTC)

@Mike Peel: That was the consensus established at Property talk:P17#Proposal for solution I. Kaldari (talk) 17:33, 11 October 2016 (UTC)


Their tutorial information exists though is less than usable for anyone but an aficionado. I suggested something like an FAQ would be more useful, especially for the casual tidier ... inactioned. From what I gather, each/every species name new or old can exist as its own item, they just all tie together with technical interlinks. All the wikipedia pages are interwiki'd from the accepted name. Where there is a mess, I just drop it on Wikidata talk:WikiProject Taxonomy and ask for someone to clean it up.  — billinghurst sDrewth 11:58, 6 February 2017 (UTC)

Call for participation in the interview study with Wikidata editorsEdit

Dear Kaldari,

I hope you are doing good,

I am Kholoud, a researcher at the 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 on 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.
