Welcome to Wikidata, Lewis Hulbert!

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! Jon Harald Søby (talk) 01:32, 11 October 2017 (UTC)

Wikidata:Property proposal/cpcrulezEdit

Thank you for your update on this property proposal. Indeed, I'm a newbie in Wikidata and so, I didn't know the syntax for the formatter URL. Many many thanks to you! YotaMoteuchi (talk) 07:20, 28 August 2018 (UTC)

Wikidata:Property proposal/IGDB game IDEdit


Thank you for proposing this property! Next time, can you please make sure to ping the Wikiproject (using {{ping project|Video games}})? I likely would have liked to give input on this (and I can imagine that User:Diggr would have had too).

Thanks :)

In this case (and that’s the reason why I had not proposed that property myself yet :) ) there is likely an argument to be made on whether we should record the slug or the id − cf the data structure returned by their API:
    "id": 1942,
    "name": "The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt",
    "slug": "the-witcher-3-wild-hunt",
    "url": "https://www.igdb.com/games/the-witcher-3-wild-hunt",

@Jean-Frédéric: I’m sorry about that and I’ll ping the project in future proposals, I’ve just always been worried about pinging too much and being an annoyance. The property is still barely in use so a discussion could still be started on which ID to use. I couldn’t find any formatter URL that uses the id, but if there was one, it seems like it could be more stable than using the slug. Lewis Hulbert (talk) 22:41, 7 September 2018 (UTC)
@Lewis Hulbert: No worries :) Initially I was also worried of spamming people with too many pings, but I think Property proposals are worth it. Also, I would like the project to be a bit more alive − I notice several people doing great work, but we’re not really collaborating much, bouncing ideas off each other. I think I’d rather have too many pings showing me other people doing good work, rather than not enough and it feels like a deserted area ;-)

Hi there! I asked on the igdb discord channel and here is the answere: "You can base36 encode the I'd to create a short url like https://www.igdb.com/g/7ef" So, I think, this doesn't work with wikidata... Diggr (talk) 15:51, 10 September 2018 (UTC)

How to improve your Animal Crossing itemsEdit

--Trade (talk) 13:24, 8 May 2020 (UTC)

@Trade: Thanks for letting me know. I was never sure about sex or gender (P21) and assumed that being an instance of Animal Crossing character (Q89598576) made the fictional universe property redundant. I'll go make sure first appearance (P4584) is included on all of them. Lewis Hulbert (talk) 15:00, 8 May 2020 (UTC)
You should also remember using instance of anthropomorphic fox (Q88555103) instead of fictional fox (Q19594662))--Trade (talk) 15:05, 8 May 2020 (UTC)

Offline TVEdit

I'm a bit confused why you manually reverted my edit and then later re-added the exact same information? --Jeanjung212 (talk) 07:38, 16 October 2020 (UTC)

I wasn't sure how I removed it, so I added it back when I noticed it was missing. I'm not sure what a "Manual revert" is, I see it there on the edit history but I'm not sure what button I pressed to actually do it. Lewis Hulbert (talk) 18:23, 19 November 2020 (UTC)
