Welcome to Wikidata, Lymantria!

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.

Hello Lymantria, can you please restore Q54007602. He have an id the National Library of Israel. VIAF:186712347 Geagea (talk) 08:20, 4 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

  Done --Lymantria (talk) 08:24, 4 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Hi @Geagea: I don't know about the J9U ID, but both BnF ID (earliest mentioned date 1972-1973) and LCAuth identifier (mentioned date 1918) seem to be about another publication, while this one was apparently founded only in 2016. Could you check this, please? --Dorades (talk) 07:23, 13 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Geagea: I stumbled upon this item again today and still think it should be deleted. The English label and the title given by the creator of the item was "Palestine Mirror" (with some aliases), while the four IDs refer to "Palestine news"/"The Palestine news"/"The Palestine news périodique". None of them match with either the label, the title or the aliases in its original form. Furthermore, the dates don't match as I mentioned above. --Dorades (talk) 09:20, 3 June 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I agree. I moved the id's (VIAF, BNF, J9U) to the correct item - The Palestine News (Q20502345). It supposed to be a newspaper from the Palestinian National Authority (Q42620) but seems that there are no evidence of existence. I have checked the history of the item. The edits done by User:Authordom (posibally also the anonymous edits) - globally banned user. The OCLC link was about Palestine News Network (Q7127312). Thenks.

Hi @Lymantria: I think this item can be deleted again. Thank you! --Dorades (talk) 13:33, 7 June 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

And Q55143928 - VIAF:12146151872205210387. Geagea (talk) 09:22, 4 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

  Done as well. I must have been too quick in my judgements... --Lymantria (talk) 09:26, 4 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
we are only human. Geagea (talk) 09:28, 4 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Geagea: Similar to the item above: J9U ID and LCAuth identifier seem to be about another person, the other identifiers are only promotional or not even working. I think this item should be deleted again. --Dorades (talk) 07:23, 13 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Dorades:, "other identifiers" you mean to EGAXA id? if so another item should be created new item and move other id's if are so. Geagea (talk) 18:16, 13 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Geagea: An EGAXA ID is not stated there right now, is it? I was referring (mainly) to MusicBrainz artist ID, IMDb ID, Google Play Music artist ID (former scheme), Google Knowledge Graph ID, Discogs artist ID and Crunchbase person ID. Sure, another item would make sense, I think. The whole batch that I nominated for deletion in this case was often using IDs that did not correspond with the respective item. --Dorades (talk) 18:25, 13 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
still the correct practice would be to create new item. unless the person with "MusicBrainz artist ID, IMDb ID, Google Play Music artist ID" is not notable. Geagea (talk) 18:36, 13 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Exactly. Notability was the reason to delete this item in the first place. But the decision about the renewed deletion is up to Lymantria, obviously. --Dorades (talk) 19:44, 13 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Ok. The ticket was a mixed up of 2 persons. I'v created Yunus Muhammad Ibrahim (Q118352548) and moved the appropriate identifiers. Thank you for bringing this to my attention. Geagea (talk) 23:20, 13 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I deleted Q55143928. Is Q54007602 checked as well? --Lymantria (talk) 06:11, 14 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Q54007602 is ok. the other one also was ok but contained two people. Geagea (talk) 07:14, 14 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Thank you. The other one now did not appear to be notable. --Lymantria (talk) 07:27, 14 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hey Lymantria would you please restore Q118247104. Because it doesn’t created for Advertising purposes. This item is only created for knowledge purposes and to store all information about company at one place. Thank you so much for understanding. Moontown Clothing (talk) 05:36, 11 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

The item did not fulfill our notability criteria. I will hence not restore the item. If you want to contest this decision, please visit Wikidata:Guide to requests for undeletion. --Lymantria (talk) 05:42, 11 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Feeling sorry that my item fall under notability criteria. I was not aware about Notability criteria properly. I'll remove everything which cause item to fall in notability criteria. Please restore item, I'm promising you that item will not cause any problems in future. Moontown Clothing (talk) 06:19, 11 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Notabililty criteria are not caused by the content of the item, but by what is missing: serious sources. --Lymantria (talk) 06:59, 11 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
can you please tell me the exact reason why my item not fullfill the Notability criteria. I'm new here that's why I can't figure out. Moontown Clothing (talk) 07:38, 11 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Would you have read the linked pages I suggested to you, you would have known the answers. Please, read these carefully before coming back here. --Lymantria (talk) 14:00, 11 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Help to Restore My Page Q116855496Edit

Hey lymantria, my Wikidata page has been deleted just a few hours ago and the reason has been told that the duplicate page of this title has been deleted last time, so deleting this page. Dear lymantria, I want to tell you that last time also I had created my page but then I had no identity. But now I am a music producer or singer, and my songs are available globally on music sources, yet my page has been deleted, you are requested to recover my page as soon as possible, this page is about me. In which I wrote information about myself for fans, not for any advertisement purpose. Montyoriginal (talk) 21:12, 11 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

i'm waiting for your response Montyoriginal (talk) 22:42, 11 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Please enclose some evidence that you have serious (independent) sources supporting your claim of notability. Especially when people are writing about themselves, we need to be very precise in judging that the item is supported by these sources. It may be a good idea to read Wikidata:Guide to requests for undeletion, where some explanation is given. The item as deleted by collegue Bovlb is large, but does not show enough notability in itself. Some examples: A YouTube channel with 3.420 subscibers is not impressive. There is no link to a newspaper or magazine article writing neutrally about you. I see no reason to undelete now. --Lymantria (talk) 05:13, 12 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

These links are mostly self created content/advertorials. They are not serious and independent, hence do not constitute sufficient notability. Google knowledge graph also is not a strong support for notability, neither is Imdb. --Lymantria (talk) 07:13, 12 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I have found my news interview clip on YouTube but YouTube video link is not sharing on your site. Montyoriginal (talk) 07:43, 12 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Dear Lymantria, My page is not because of sources but duplicate page was deleted earlier so it has been deleted. I didn't have any presence when I first created the page, but now it is there, please restore my page Montyoriginal (talk) 07:53, 12 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
No, my decision still stands, I am not convinced. --Lymantria (talk) 08:48, 12 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Friend please try to understand. It's been more than 3 months since my page was published. So now I cannot afford the deletion of this page. You are not approving any source of my presence, so which source should I give you now? Montyoriginal (talk) 09:05, 12 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Q118954512 - Sheldon DyerEdit

You deleted this because it does not meet notability policy.

Per the notability policy, "It refers to an instance of a clearly identifiable conceptual or material entity that can be described using serious and publicly available references." See https://id.loc.gov/authorities/names/no2023062914.html. Emwille (talk) 01:32, 3 June 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

There must have been some kind of malfunction, when I clicked the LCAuth it showed to me as "not found". Now I see it is fine, so I restored the item. --Lymantria (talk) 09:00, 3 June 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
