Welcome to Wikidata, Laddo!

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!

Hello, Laddo! I am just letting you know that I have added the autopatroller flag to your account, as you are a trusted user on Wikidata. If you have any questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to contact me or leave a message at the project chat. Thanks, Mark91it's my world 07:12, 4 April 2013 (UTC)


Hey, you added the Property:P107 to some items. This is good, but the values you used where incorrect and your edit was detected by Special:AbuseFilter/14. Only values described at Property talk:P107#Table should be used for P107. --Sk!d (talk) 22:33, 5 April 2013 (UTC)

Oops, thanks for the info. I corrected most of the wrong changes, I believe ;) Laddo (talk) 22:27, 6 April 2013 (UTC)


Tu n'as pas à enlever les «ponts» comme pour le «pont Jacques-Cartier» et le «pont Champlain», cela rend inutilement difficile la recherche d'un élément. J'ai cepandant ajouter l'alias sans le pont. --Fralambert (talk) 03:46, 20 April 2013 (UTC)

Hierarchy of administrative divisions

I did mean to put P131 in that statement. Thanks for spotting that mistake.

In my opinion we should always P132 (P132) for administrative divisions. instance of (P31) should be used for non-administrative divisions like Census designated places, unincorporated areas, informal settlements, most villages. These non-administrative places should however use located in the administrative territorial entity (P131) to identify the administrative division they are in.

Property located on terrain feature (P706) is used to identify a natural feature that the item is on, such as a coast Ocean, bay, river, mountain, etc. Filceolaire (talk) 08:37, 10 August 2013 (UTC)

Q159282 / Q13387669

Orchis anthropophora (Q13387669) was used by Aceras anthropophorum (Q159282) as basionym (P566). basionym (P566) is nessecary to create the correct author citation (L.) W.T.Aiton. I reverted your incorrect merger. --Succu

Changement pas très pertinent

Salut Thieol, je suis tombé sur ce changement par ton bot et j'ai quelques réticences: ça ajoute une description française alors qu'il n'y a ni label français ni article lié français; à part faire apparaître cet item lorsqu'on recherchera "homonymie" dans un contexte français, je n'y vois que des désavantages. Ton opinion? LaddΩ chat ;) 22:58, 8 October 2013 (UTC)

Bonjour, il a été demandé à ce que tous les items ait un label et une description. Toutes pages homonymiques ont été marquées de la même façon dans toutes les langues. Pour le label, difficile de savoir pour un bot. Exemple pour le cas mentionné : "White Dove" ? "Blanche Colombe" ? seul un consensus sur l'utilisation des pages homonymiques nous dira comment ce genre de cas doit être pris en compte....L'avantage que j'ai vu pour l'instant à cela est le fait qu'un utilisateur saississe "White Dove" comme valeur au lieu de mettre l'item réel. Un utilisateur français cliquant sur Q1342417 peut ainsi tout de suite qu'il s'agit d'un homonyme et non d'un item "usuel". Autre exmple plus parlant Q7358568 Thieol 22:58, 10 October 2013 (UTC)


I moved the links to en:Blazon etc. back to where it belongs, at blazonry (Q494452). Then I saw you had done the opposite not long ago. I don't understand why you split the links up like you did. Arms Jones (talk) 13:12, 19 December 2013 (UTC)

@Arms Jones: You were wrong... In Wikidata, each item represents a very precise concept; linked WP articles are not be linked "because they belong together" but only when they represent the exact same concept. blazonry (Q15300809) is the description of arms whereas blazonry (Q494452) is the art of producing such a description. Have a look at Help:Modeling and Wikidata:Glossary. However to facilitate navigation between languages, I added some links to redirection pages. LaddΩ chat ;) 15:13, 21 December 2013 (UTC)
