Welcome to Wikidata, Olaf Kosinsky!

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! --Tobias1984 (talk) 09:36, 26 August 2013 (UTC)


René Bazinet (Q7313662)Edit

You need to give the proper credit for the picture of René Bazinet that was procured from Wikimedia. Barbara Buffington is the clearly listed photographer, who took the picture, in Montreal, Canada - circa: 2002. Please give this photographer appropriate credit, on the appropriate Wikidata page(s), where all the relevant data appears. Thank you for following the correct protocol where credit for Wikimedia photographic art work is concerned. 2600:1700:DDB0:7E70:2800:45ED:6113:66E0 02:22, 30 December 2018 (UTC)

Name in native languageEdit


I have come across a couple of items like Adam Markiewicz (Q9139972) where you put the "name in native language" property P1559 with the disambiguation part like "(polityk)" that obviously is not a part of the name. Please avoid this error in future. Kpjas (talk) 08:21, 21 February 2019 (UTC)

Simple EnglishEdit

"simple" isn't valid language code (although it's possible to insert it). Please disable your QuickStatements batches. Matěj Suchánek (talk) 12:34, 4 May 2019 (UTC)

Languages spoken, written, or signedEdit

Please stop using quick statements through WiDar to add English as a person's languages spoken, written or signed (P1412), just because they have an article on the English Wikipedia. You have done this for multiple French Canadians whose documented language was French. Some of these edits I reverted, and now you are repeating to make them over again. Thank you. — Dcflyer (talk) 09:45, 7 June 2019 (UTC)

Wrong label in Q43379706Edit

Hi Olaf, you've added Kevin Kühnert as a Danish label to Q43379706 with a bot. I changed that back, I was just wondering where it got that information. Probably based on vandalism in some article? (Totally unrelated: Thanks for all your pictures.)-- 13:10, 9 June 2019 (UTC)
