Logo of Wikidata

Welcome to Wikidata, Matiras!

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.

An update from the Sustainability InitiativeEdit

Thank you for supporting the Sustainability Initiative!

Hi, Matiras! Thank you again for supporting the Sustainability Initiative, which aims at reducing the environmental impact of the Wikimedia movement. Over the past two years, more than 200 Wikipedians from all over the world have come together to push the Wikimedia movement towards greater sustainability.

What's new?

We are writing you this message because there is great news: The Board of Trustees of the Wikimedia Foundation has finally passed a resolution stating that the Foundation is committed to seeking ways to reduce the impact of its activities on the environment. Also, we have created a cool logo and found a nice name for the project which you can see on the right :-)

What's next?

Currently, we are working with Wikimedia Foundation staff to make sustainability a key priority for the selection of a new location for Wikimedia servers in Singapore. Also, we have presented the Wikimedia Foundation with a green energy roadmap to have all Wikimedia servers run on renewable energy by 2019.

Please help!

Let's keep this project moving forward – and there are several ways in which you can help:

  • Ask other Wikipedians to sign the project page as well – this way we can show the Wikimedia Foundation that this is an issue that the community really cares about.
  • Talk to Wikimedians you know about the importance of reducing the environmental impact of the Wikimedia movement.
  • Improve and translate the project page on Meta.

If you have any questions, you can contact us on on Meta. Again, thank you very much for your support! --Aubrey and Gnom (talk) 10:00, 9 April 2017 (UTC)


No lo tengo claro. A Navarrete sí le tengo fichado, en Blanco y Negro tiene muchas caricaturas por ejemplo, pero de la fecha de fallecimiento ni idea, por lo que está fuera del alcance de Commons. Creo que lo del título del artículo de ABC hace referencia más a parodias teatrales y no tanto a caricaturas gráficas. :( Si te fijas si haces clic en la siguiente imagen sale una "Caricatura de Wagner por Jan Op de Boock" (¿Jan Op De Beeck (Q6149640)?) Gracias de todas formas! strakhov (talk) 18:08, 5 December 2017 (UTC)

Uf, @Strakhov:, tienes toda la razón. Debí haber leído el artículo completo. Disculpa y gracias. Matiras (talk) 19:22, 5 December 2017 (UTC)

BIC vs monumentoEdit

Hola, Matiras. Vi que creaste este item y que almacenaste como heritage designation (P1435) el item National monument of Spain (Q907116). Lo más extendido es incluir en este espacio el item Bien de Interés Cultural (Q23712). En cuando a la info del carácter del bien, en lugar de supeditarlo a que éste sea subclase de BIC, creo que lo mejor sería adoptar una solución de como la aquí comentada, vía calificador subject has role (P2868). Aquí un ejemplo práctico. Desafortunadamente, debido a las ediciones de un bot, la información sobre el tipo de BIC en wikidata está, de forma general, almacenada 'a pelo' en P31, cosa que no considero correcta. ¿Cómo lo ves? Un cordial saludo. strakhov (talk) 01:06, 4 September 2018 (UTC)

Hola, @Strakhov:. Me parece razonable. Entonces estaríamos ante un heritage designation (P1435) Bien de Interés Cultural → que subject has role (P2868) de Monumento y de bien en el Catálogo General del Patrimonio Histórico Andaluz. ¿Estoy en línea con lo que planteas?. Un saludo. Matiras (talk) 07:36, 4 September 2018 (UTC)
Uhmmm. No. Bueno, no del todo. Yo pondría parte del BIC por una parte y la otra por la otra. Es decir, a priori:
estatus patrimonial-> "BIC" (rol->monumento)
estatus patrimonial-> " bien en el Catálogo General del Patrimonio Histórico Andaluz"
Mas que nada porque se puede estar en el Catálogo General del Patrimonio Histórico Andaluz sin ser BIC.
strakhov (talk) 07:40, 4 September 2018 (UTC)
¡Ups!, cierto, el contenedor del catálogo es mayor. Entonces conformes ambos con la estructura. Iré adecuando las que he incorporado. Muchas gracias por la ayuda y colaboración. Un saludo. Matiras (talk) 07:53, 4 September 2018 (UTC)

Q20617952 & Q38066554Edit

Hello, you merged these both items, but Joseph Coppens on wawiki (an author and linguist in walloon language, died in 19811970) is not the same person that the one on the fr/nlwiki (died in 1967). Could you please correct this mistake? Regards, Reptilien.19831209BE1 (talk) 09:07, 21 May 2019 (UTC)

PS : there's a lot of wrong informations on idref. Reptilien.19831209BE1 (talk) 09:21, 21 May 2019 (UTC)

Authority controlEdit

Hi! I've just noticed that here you have inserted BAV using old Vatican Library ID (former scheme) (P1017) instead of Vatican Library VcBA ID (P8034); it may be due to the use of User:Magnus Manske/authority control.js (the problem has already been reported, but it is still there). I suggest you to use User:Bargioni/moreIdentifiers in order to easily and quickly copy authority control IDs from VIAF ID (P214), managing correctly BAV. To enable it you can add to your common.js:

importScript( 'User:Bargioni/moreIdentifiers defaultconf.js' );
importScript( 'User:Bargioni/moreIdentifiers.js' );

Ask me if you have any doubt. Bye, --Epìdosis 10:16, 7 April 2021 (UTC)

Call for participation in the interview study with Wikidata editorsEdit

Dear Matiras,

I hope you are doing good,

I am Kholoud, a researcher at King’s College London, and I work on a project as part of my PhD research that develops a personalized recommendation system to suggest Wikidata items for the editors based on their interests and preferences. I am collaborating on this project with Elena Simperl and Miaojing Shi.

I would love to talk with you to know about your current ways to choose the items you work on in Wikidata and understand the factors that might influence such a decision. Your cooperation will give us valuable insights into building a recommender system that can help improve your editing experience.

Participation is completely voluntary. You have the option to withdraw at any time. Your data will be processed under the terms of UK data protection law (including the UK General Data Protection Regulation (UK GDPR) and the Data Protection Act 2018). The information and data that you provide will remain confidential; it will only be stored on the password-protected computer of the researchers. We will use the results anonymized to provide insights into the practices of the editors in item selection processes for editing and publish the results of the study to a research venue. If you decide to take part, we will ask you to sign a consent form, and you will be given a copy of this consent form to keep.

If you’re interested in participating and have 15-20 minutes to chat (I promise to keep the time!), please either contact me at kholoudsaa@gmail.com or kholoud.alghamdi@kcl.ac.uk or use this form https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSdmmFHaiB20nK14wrQJgfrA18PtmdagyeRib3xGtvzkdn3Lgw/viewform?usp=sf_link with your choice of the times that work for you.

I’ll follow up with you to figure out what method is the best way for us to connect.

Please contact me if you have any questions or require more information about this project.

Thank you for considering taking part in this research.
