Welcome to Wikidata, Superm401!

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!

Scripts and GadgetsEdit

You might want to consider enabling a few gadgets, they'll make life a lot easier here. Allow me to recommend some that I use:

  • slurpInterwiki - allows you to easily import interwiki links via the "Import interwiki" link under your toolbox. You can enable this in the "Gadgets" section of your preferences.
  • RequestDeletion - adds a link at the top of each item with a link for quickly requesting a deletion on Wikidata:Requests for deletion. Again, enable in preferences.
  • enumItems - adds arrows at the top of the page allowing you to access the next or previous item. Preferences.

I've also noticed that you've been doing a bit of work with living creatures, good for you. A script that you may find helpful is "Import statements". This adds a link in your toolbox allowing you to import statements such as "family", "taxon rank", etc. automatically from Wikipedia infoboxes. To use this, add the following to your common.js page:

importScript( 'User:Magnus Manske/import statements.js' );

Keep up the good work you're doing. Hope to see you around sometime. Regards, FrigidNinja 23:30, 31 March 2013 (UTC)

Have a flag!Edit

<shameless use of templated message>
Hello, Superm401! 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, — PinkAmpers&(Je vous invite à me parler) 00:21, 1 April 2013 (UTC)

Wikidata weekly summary #53Edit

Here's your quick overview of what has been happening around Wikidata over the last week.
  • Development
    • Got some external professional review of our code and architecture and started working on their feedback
    • Worked on reducing the dispatch lag (the time it takes for changes on Wikidata to be sent to the Wikipedias for display in watchlist, recent changes and to purge affected pages)
    • Worked on using Redis for job queue to improve the lag situation even further
    • Created new Wikibase Query extension for phase 3 functionality
    • Autocomments & Autosummaries for SetClaim module
    • Worked on the GeoCoordinate parser
  • Events/Press
    • right now: GLAM-WIKI 2013
  • Discussions
  • Other Noteworthy Stuff
    • Deployment of phase 2 on the remaining Wikipedias was delayed because of a high lag of changes being propagated to the Wikipedias. The lag has been reduced considerably now and is going down even more. The new date for deployment will not be next week because there are other large changes on Wikimedia infrastructure scheduled that we do not want to interfere with. It will hopefully happen very soon after that though.
    • Next code update on wikidata.org is planned for Wednesday. This should include qualifiers and bugfixes.
    • There will probably be a short outage/read-only for wikidata.org on Tuesday (database is being switched to MariaDB)
    • If you're a student and interested in coding on Wikidata consider applying for Google Summer of Code.
    • There is a new user right: property creators
    • There is now a page to request deletion of a property
    • We now have Bureaucrats
    • Reasonator was improved and extended (1 2)
  • Open Tasks for You

Based on feedback for last week’s call for comments we will continue this newsletter. However more community help will be needed. From now on they’ll be drafted at d:Wikidata:Status updates/Next and your help is very welcome.

Separated from / forked fromEdit

The property that you supported, separated from (P807), has been finally created. More participation in the property proposal pages would make property creation faster. Go ahead!--Micru (talk) 02:10, 17 August 2013 (UTC)

Other language descriptionsEdit

Hi! I just read your message now.

I noticed there seemed to be some other language descriptions but I thought only certain languages were supported for their fields at this time. For future reference I'll check and see where to post descriptions in other languages.

New page for cataloguesEdit

Hi, I created a new page for collecting sites that could be added to Mix'n'match and I plan to expand it with the ones that already have scrapers by category. Feel free to use, expand. Best, Adam Harangozó (talk) 20:01, 19 October 2019 (UTC)
