Welcome to Wikidata, Kareyac!

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!

Epìdosis (talkcontribs)

Hi! I've just found here more than 4 thousands author pages in hy.wikisource that need to be connected to Wikidata. I've tried to do this manually with a sample of about 30 pages and I've found 6 duplicates, a high percentage, which I have merged (see my contributions). Probably all these semi-empty author pages have been created by LetterBot in 2018. So, I'm here to ask you if it would be possible, both using bots and manual work:

  • to merge duplicates in hy.wikisource
  • to connect remaining pages to existent Wikidata items or to new items

I can give a little help if needed in some way. Thanks in advance!

Hi, I'll try to cleanup as soon as possible. And thanks for help offer!

Just to let you know: I've recently written User:Epìdosis/Strategy, about the benefits Wikidata and libraries can reciprocally enjoy from their interconnections, and I'm now trying with @Bargioni: to contact the various libraries whose catalogs have been imported by us to Mix'n'match in order to show them these points and encourage them to improve their catalog (points L) using Wikidata, starting from deduplication of duplicate entries for the same person. If you can establish some contact with the National Library of Armenia, could you inform them of the work we (and especially you!) are doing on Mix'n'match and about the possibility they have of finding duplicates through Wikidata and merge them (point L1) and also enriching their entries through Wikidata (point L2)? Thank you very much in advance and merry Christmas from Italy!

P.S. If there is interest, I and Bargioni are also available for future chats with librarians, in order to answer any question possibly arising; unfortunately, I have to say that we know only Italian and English (or, if they can be useful, some Spanish and French)

Translation request Isabelle de Charriere

Boss-well63 (talkcontribs)

Could you or someone else translate for de hyWP the article of Isabelle de Charriere? That would be appreciated ~~~~

Kareyac (talkcontribs)

Hi! I suggested to hyWP community (talkcontribs)

Hello Kareyac,

If you know Western Armenian, could you also translate and upload a Western Armenian article of hy:Դենի Ռոդրիկ?

Kindest regards, ~~~~

Kareyac (talkcontribs)

Hi, usually I do not translate/create articles, but I can improve the existing one.

I usually do not translate/create articles for hyWP, but I'll transfer that idea to wikipedians i know.

Новый армянский раздел

Infovarius (talkcontribs)

Привет! Я заметил, что вы удалили дублирующую статью из hywiki (в Q21201204), но не добавили соответствующую статью в hywwiki в нужный элемент. Это случайность или как?

Kareyac (talkcontribs)

Приветствую! В hywWP из hyWP мигрируют все страницы на западноармянском. Добавляю просматривая, поэтому не так быстро, как хотелось бы. Есть статьи, записанные в ВД как дубли, таковыми не являющиеся, есть без линков между разделами в hyWP или с ошибочными линками, есть уже переименованные в hywWP. Это занимает некоторое время. Спасибо, что соединили.

Hi, I created a new page for collecting sites that could be added to Mix'n'match and I plan to expand it with the ones that already have scrapers by category. Feel free to expand, use for property creation. Best, --Adam Harangozó (talk) 21:17, 12 November 2019 (UTC)

Добрый день! Беспокоят из ru:ПРО:ВО: собираем контакты тематических единомышленников по водным объектам и прочей географии. Если есть skype, будем рады видеть: есть что обсудить по поводу организации геосегмента в Викиданных и локальных разделах. Если что, мой адрес на ЛС.
