Welcome to Wikidata, Mr. Fulano!

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.

Bufadienolide (Q248891) is about chemical compound, bufadienolide (Q26922994) is about class of compounds, based on Bufadienolide (Q248891) (core structure). The problem is that Wikipedias mix different concepts in one article, Wikidata must not – so Wikipedias links can be moved from one item to another, but these two items cannot be merged.

@Wostr: Ok, no problems, I didn't know about it. Mr. Fulano! Talk 19:44, 24 October 2018 (UTC)

Hey Mr. Fulano, in phab:T190976 you claimed that a good list badge (Q51759403) status exists in eswiki and ptwiki. I have difficulties to find the relevant pages in eswiki and have the impression that eswiki maybe does not have a "good list" status at all, just the much more common featured list badge (Q17506997) status. Can you help me here? Thanks! —MisterSynergy (talk) 08:20, 14 October 2019 (UTC)

Hi @MisterSynergy, you can find about good lists (anexo bueno in spanish) in this page, where explain the criteria for promote these pages, and here you can find all good lists in eswiki, along with good articles, but you can differenciate them for being in the domain Anexo:.

Thanks! Do you know whether eswiki additionally has a "featured list" status for lists? I cannot find this due to my missing Spanish skills. Terminology wise, "anexo bueno" is indeed similar to good list badge (Q51759403), but as most projects only have the (higher ranking) featured list badge (Q17506997) status, I think we should consider "anexos buenos" as the eswiki counterpart of "featured list".
Right now, four eswiki sitelinks have a good list badge (Q51759403) badge in Wikidata, and five have a featured list badge (Q17506997) badge (see this query). At the same time, es:Wikipedia:Artículos buenos lists much more pages in the "Anexo" namespace, but many of they seem to have a good article badge (Q17437798) badge here at Wikidata (query). This could be due to the fact that "Artículos buenos" and "Anexos buenos" seemingly use the same status indicator template {{Artículo bueno}}.
So, do you think we can tidy this somehow? —MisterSynergy (talk) 06:23, 15 October 2019 (UTC)
@MisterSynergy: I was reading the documentation of this, and no, there isn't featured list status in eswiki, so I think that we can call it like featured list as there is no higher status, but I don't know if is the better thing to do. And about these lists be flagged like good articles, probably it's because before the creation of this task the editors was marking then like this, as it is the most like option, but I think that the best way to answer it is asking for a eswiki user.

Thanks, that helps already a lot. I will not change actual badges for now, as I am still investigating whether we/I can automate badge management with a bot. I have no further questions at this point, but maybe I will come back to you at a later point. Regards, MisterSynergy (talk) 06:25, 16 October 2019 (UTC)
