Welcome to Wikidata, Metsavend!

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.

Best regards! --Tobias1984 (talk) 16:46, 6 September 2013 (UTC)


Babel lets you view and edit more than one language on Wikidata. Just add e.g. {{#babel:de-N|en-3|es-1|fr-2|nl-3|it-4|da-0}} to your user page. With the same language codes you can add links to your userpage on Wikipedia e.g. de:User:User123. --Tobias1984 (talk) 16:46, 6 September 2013 (UTC)


Hallo Metsavend,
When you merge items, you may want to use the merge.js gadget from help page about merging. It helps with merging, gives the option to always keep the lower number (which is older, so preferable in most cases) and removes the need to file a request on Wikidata:Requests for deletions.

Thank you! I activated it now. --Metsavend (talk) 12:19, 19 January 2017 (UTC)

How to MergeEdit

Hello, Metsavend, and thank you for your deletion request.

However, it was an easy merge, and below I will explain a merge.

What is a mergeEdit

A merge is when you copy all of the information from the first item and send it to the second item, deleting anything that is conflicting, such as exact duplicates. Then, the first item is cleared, and made into a redirect (if doing automatically).

How to mergeEdit

  1. Use Special:MergeItems. Comes with the Wikidata (Wikibase) software, but will cancel if interwiki conflicts are found
  2. Use MediaWiki:Gadget-Merge.js. This is the preferred method of merging. Enable at your Preferences.
  3. Use the QuickStatements (Q20084080) tool, semi-automatically
  4. Do it manually.

Estonian valladEdit


I see you've been updating some stuff after the 2017 reorganization. I've been working on this one, see User:Reosarevok/Estonian_politics/Vallad for a list of all we have and its status. I changed a few of your "follows" by "replaces", which I've been told is more appropriate for this situation. Tartu City (Q42307965) is tricky, because according to the info available on haldusreform.fin.ee (Ühinenud ja kõikide omavalitsuste ülevaade (seisuga 14.07.2017)): "(NB! Olemasolev Tartu linn säilib, Tähtvere liitub)". So this should be the same Tartu linn, just bigger - but it seems to have been assigned a new EHAK code. --Reosarevok (talk) 21:40, 6 December 2017 (UTC)

Thank you! I agree with you. "Replaces" is better. I don't have an answer conserning Tartu. It remains as a settlement unit and should be kept separate from administrative city of Tartu. --Metsavend (talk) 22:06, 6 December 2017 (UTC)

Translation requestEdit


Can you create en:Baku TV Tower and en:National Academy of Sciences of Azerbaijan in Estonian Wikipedia?

Ole hea, jäta see Baturini surmakuupäev rahule, 16. mai on õige, paljugi mida ajakirjandus ajab. Pseudacorus (talk) 06:01, 18 May 2019 (UTC)

Küllap istusid kirjaniku surivoodi ääres, aga isiklikud kogemused ja andmed ei lähe seni arvesse, kuni neid pole avaldatud. Seni avaldatud andmetest lähtuvalt on ta surmakuupäev 17. mai. Ainuke, mis annab 16. mai, on Postimehe pildiallkiri. --Metsavend (talk) 07:50, 18 May 2019 (UTC)
