Logo of Wikidata

Welcome to Wikidata, Kamapants!

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.

Best regards!

Robert Brown edit

Hi. I see you have reverted my edit to the description of Robert Brown. Can you explain the reason please? I thought the additional text in the description is more useful. Happy to be persuaded otherwise. Thanks Watty62 (talk) 17:15, 4 February 2020 (UTC)Reply


Hi Ian!Thank you for your message. Please check out the new description based on your change. I just thought that having the years at the beginning looked odd but I agree with you that your description provides more info and is very useful. Kamapants (talk) 17:31, 4 February 2020 (UTC)Reply
