Welcome to Wikidata, LeoRomero!
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.
- thanks Liuxinyu970226! i do have one question: re this copyrighted photo collection of mine on the subject w:Community (100+ images): what's a good way to bring them into wikidata? should i upload into Commons and tag with "community" instead? both?

- Well, and first, Wikidata is not a "file repository", so you should do that on Wikimedia Commons.
- Then, before uploading, P*L*E*A*S*E make sure your files are licensed under a free license, such as CC-BY 3.0 or CC-BY-SA 3.0, see also c:Commons:Flickr files.
- When completed, you can add file names to any Wikidata items (as a Property value).
