Welcome to Wikidata, Migrant!

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!

Thanks, Iwan Novirion. My main aim here is within the scope of speed-skating on ice related articles and my home wikipedia-project is User:Migrant on Norwegian wikipedia bokmål. Regards Migrant (talk) 19:10, 19 March 2013 (UTC)


Template:Autopatroller/text/en Snow Blizzard 17:56, 16 June 2013 (UTC)

Okay, Thank you, Snow Blizzard. As you probably noticed I will mostly do add-ons and correcting some double-items from different Wp-languages, that I know the language from. Regards Migrant (talk) 01:55, 17 June 2013 (UTC)


It is now a gadget, you should remove it from your common.js and re-enable it via your preferences. Regards, --Ricordisamoa 05:52, 27 August 2013 (UTC)

Okay, thanks, now it's removed. :-) Regards Migrant (talk) 23:04, 29 August 2013 (UTC)

Merging itemsEdit

Hallo Migrant,

If you were not already using it, you may want to check out the merge.js gadget for merging items. It has an option "Request deletion for extra items on RfD" to automatically nominate the page you are merging from for deletion. This way of nominating also makes it easier for the admins to process such requests. For support and other options you can check the help page about merging.

Speed skating editsEdit

Happy future to you too! Ciao from Italy, Ary29 (talk) 16:58, 15 June 2016 (UTC)

no -> nb?Edit

Hi! Noticed, that we have some items with [no] labels, which as far as I understand should be moved to [nb] language code, right? Or there is a bot, that does this regularly? --Edgars2007 (talk) 05:34, 5 September 2016 (UTC)

I guess the one you'd like to talk to about that is User talk:Danmichaelo or his userbot, User talk:DanmicholoBot. Since I don't run bots, but only ask of help to do runs by them once in a while, but that seldom happens I'm asking for runs. BTW. Thanks for notifying. Regards Migrant (talk) 10:01, 5 September 2016 (UTC)


Can you move your arguments to Wikidata:Requests for comment/Findagrave removed as a source for information so that others can see your thoughts  – The preceding unsigned comment was added by Richard Arthur Norton (1958- ) (talk • contribs) at 19. jun. 2017 kl. 07:08 (UTC).

Noémie FisetEdit

Hi. I made this edit because constraint status (P2316) should not be used on items, but only in Property namespaces. But I don't know which other property can be used in this case, maybe a "Type of profile", but I can't find anything similar. --β16 - (talk) 09:07, 28 June 2017 (UTC)

Sorry, but I don't understand your language, but I tried to look into this problem and it seems that has something to do with the way the infobox-template grabs and show the wikidata- references ? I just reverted your edits since I found it weird that anyone just removed the references. Best regards Migrant (talk) 15:36, 7 April 2019 (UTC)

Reverted repurposing of Q18149418Edit

Hi! I wanted to let you know that I had to revert the changes you made to Chynna Rogers (Q18149418). This item originally referred to a person, but the corresponding Wikipedia article was changed into a disambiguation page because someone thought that person was insufficiently notable. (They now have an article under a different title.) Wikipedias are free to reuse titles for different topics, but Wikidata should not follow that practice because Wikidata item ids are intended to be permanent identifiers. Cheers, Bovlb (talk) 17:07, 13 April 2020 (UTC)

That's okay but what about the disambiguation-page at the english wikipedia then ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chynna ) ? Best regards Migrant (talk) 20:59, 13 April 2020 (UTC)
en:Chynna can get its own item. Please feel free so go ahead and create it. I did not do so because I could not find any corresponding page in another language to link it to. Bovlb (talk) 21:25, 13 April 2020 (UTC)
The reason for my edits in this case was because of the then two profiles were listed at two different deaths of two different people, so I was only trying to correct that. I took the easy way out of number of edits. So what do you think of connecting the english disambiguation-page and the english wiktionary-page which is linked in a box at the english wikipedia-article page. Best regards Migrant (talk) 10:19, 14 April 2020 (UTC)
Re Chynna Rogers (Q18149418), yes the situation was complicated by an anon user adding unrelated death information.
Re en:Chynna, I don't do much linking to Wiktionary, but that sounds reasonable. Cheers, Bovlb (talk) 20:15, 15 April 2020 (UTC)


Hei, jeg fjernet ektefelle på Berit Boman siden de var gift bare noen få år. Det ser merkelig ut å ha slikt i en inforboks - spesielt over nålevende personer.--Ezzex (talk) 23:20, 30 June 2020 (UTC)

Må vel være greit å ha der med kilde som opplyser om start og slutt når begge personene har artikkel på wikipedia og er kjente personer i samfunnet... PS. Referansen fra wikidata hentes ikke til wikipedia men er mer utfyllende på wikidata enn den samme referansen som brukes i wikipedia-artikkelen som ikke har sitat eller forfatter. Kilden som er brukt har kanskje en liten svakhet i at den ikke egentlig bekrefter at separasjonstiden er gjennomført med fullbyrdelse av avsluttet ekteskap. Med vennlig hilsen Migrant (talk) 00:08, 1 July 2020 (UTC)
Jeg er er ikke enig i dette. Jeg mener dette kun bør står i hovedteksten der det er mulighet for mer nyanser. Man slipper da også å få tidligere partnere ramset opp i boksen som et register.--Ezzex (talk) 10:29, 1 July 2020 (UTC)
@Ezzex: Dette ekteskapet med no:Svein Tore Bergestuen for Berit Boman burde jo stått i den norske artikkels infoboks også, men der er det lagt inn en parameterverdi som gjør at den ikke vises og slikt kan jo også legges inn på artikkelen om Berit Boman om man vil. Men egentlig burde jo også ektefellen Åse Linda Tynning også stått i infoboksen til Svein Tore Bergestuen etter min mening. Jeg vil begrunne dette med at disse var innvolvert innenfor samme bransje og samme hovedarbeidsgivere og også dermed ga hverandre innspill i deres arbeidshverdag som de begge hadde nytte av og da vil det fremkomme klarere om man ser at de også har vært lengre personlig forhold til hverandre. Ps. Etter min mening er man ikke lenger «i ungdommen» når man har passert de første 30-årene av sitt liv. Det at ekteskapet mellom Åse Tynning og Svein Tore Bergestuen ihvertfall var nærmere ungdommen enn ekteskapet med Boman var, mener jeg ikke har noe å si. Ps2. Savner forøvrig artikkel om programlederen Åse Tynning (https://no.linkedin.com/in/åse-tynning-378a2090 , https://www.imdb.com/name/nm1665875/ , https://filmfront.no/aktor/22031/aase-linda-tynning og https://tidal.com/browse/artist/10551237) som var gift med Svein Tore Bergestuen til 2004. https://www.tv2.no/a/3891126 Med vennlig hilsen Migrant (talk) 11:55, 1 July 2020 (UTC)
Jeg har sagt det før og gjentar igjen at jeg gjennom de siste par-tre år har fått mindre og mindre sansen for Wikidata. Jeg mener dette er en oppsamling av personinformasjon som er uheldig. Og dette er bare en av flere ting jeg har problemer med. De andre inforboksene er enda værre en biografiene, men biografene er mer problematisk siden de omhandler enkeltpersoner. Noen ganger er det nesten så jeg synes wikidata burde utslettes.--Ezzex (talk) 12:08, 1 July 2020 (UTC)
@Ezzex: Det har jeg lest før fra din signatur også. Jeg synes det er viktig å finne ut av «samrøre'n» mellom mennesker, for å prøve å forstå hvor kommer disse ideene fra og hvem pusher disse ideene. Og i et samliv så hjelper jo oftest disse hverandre opp og frem i livet, noe forsåvidt alle vil gjøre, men de gjør gjerne dette på sin egen personlige måte som andre kan lære av. Innimellom ser jeg på dette som et vakkert spill i samfunnet, med sine krumspring, og målrettethet og nyheter i form av ideer, programmer og ting.
Angående enkeltpersoner så er det ingen som kan leve helt alene, man har alltid en eller annen avhengighet av andre personer i større eller mindre grad. Det er det nydelige med et samfunn, og dette bør også gjenspeiles i en biografi i hvilken grad man lever sammen med andre og på hvilken måte.

 Line Margareta FossEdit

Hi, I write about https://www.wikidata.org/w/index.php?title=Q11984125&oldid=prev&diff=1478428564 I am pretty convinced that she was a member of Ullensaker Cykleklub, but we need a beginning and a end date. Otherwise, she appears as member of this club in all start list and ranking on wikipedia... Psemdel (talk) 14:55, 16 August 2021 (UTC)

Thanks for commenting on this here, before going into an unwanted edit-war. In Norway it is common to be club-member/team-member of 2 teams at the same time if they are a professional team and an amateur team and Ullensaker Cykleklub is an amateur team. And she can also be a member of different teams if they have different sports she competes in. I am not writing much about cyclists but I do a lot of writing on speed skaters and speed skating, which is also on of her sports. About beginning and end date I can only read that out from and latest start date and earliest end date. Since you are more into cycling related stuff than I am... so maybe you can tell me or find out what the last letters of the team Hitec Products UCK, meaning UCK, what are they standing for ? Is that actually Ullensaker Cykleklub ? Cos the deal in particpating in national championships in Norway are that they are a member of an amateur club and thereby also respecting and abiding by the rules of the sports national governing body. I just sent her a request of these information through facebook messenger chat. My brother have a huge list of friends within the norwegian speed skating community, which I'm using a lot during my wikipedia-work for confirmation and help to find good sources. Best regards Migrant (talk) 16:12, 16 August 2021 (UTC)
Ok, I see. It is true that professionnal cyclists can keep their original amateur club in parallel. Normally, it is not so important for the encyclopedia, but why not. I will have to change the code to cover this case. Sorry for the editing-"war", I did not check in the history, I just saw that the start list was wrong "again". Psemdel (talk) 06:06, 17 August 2021 (UTC)
I can now confirm that the letters UCK i the teamname Hitec Products UCK really are short for the amateur-club Ullensaker Cykleklub, after having a short Facebook Messenger chat with her. There she told me she was in fact a national championship-medalist in 5 sports; speed skating, cycling, athletics (marathon), triathlon and duathlon (cycling and running), and her personal best in an Ironman are 9 hours 50 minutes and 9 seconds which she did in Ironman Copenhagen 2013.
