Welcome to Wikidata, Paucabot!

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!

Wikidata:Requests for deletionsEdit

Use MediaWiki:Gadget-Merge.js to merge two items and MediaWiki:Gadget-RequestDeletion.js to request one item for deletion. enable them from your preferences.--GZWDer (talk) 15:33, 20 January 2014 (UTC)


Hi Paucabot, you're currently making a lot of mistakes like this and this. Could you please clean up? Multichill (talk) 19:58, 3 September 2015 (UTC)

@Multichill: I'm sorry. I didn't know. I'll try to clean it. Paucabot (talk) 20:34, 3 September 2015 (UTC)
Mistakes happen. If you have a look at this tree you'll notice Wikimedia category (Q4167836) doesn't have a lot of subcategories (some mistakes in the tree, fixed, but might take a while to update) so finding the doubles is actually quite easy. Take a look at this page. Do the "-P31:Q4167836" with Widar and everything is nice again :-). Multichill (talk) 07:37, 4 September 2015 (UTC)
Thanks for the info, Multichill. I think I corrected them all manually. Paucabot (talk) 14:11, 4 September 2015 (UTC)
@Multichill: By the way, what's the inclusion criteria for Q15647814? Why , for example, Q3740 is not in there? Paucabot (talk) 15:55, 7 September 2015 (UTC)

Stop merging taxaEdit

Your merges are wrong: different genus, used as basionym etc. Please check and undo them. --Succu (talk) 10:44, 3 October 2015 (UTC)

@Succu: Phyllonastes and Noblella are taxonomic synonyms. I'll check the other one. Paucabot (talk) 10:48, 3 October 2015 (UTC)
@Succu: I think both pairs are synonyms, but some statements were not correct to merge. You have been able to add new :ca names because I have renamed them there. Paucabot (talk) 10:57, 3 October 2015 (UTC)
We do not merge synonyms. Phyllonastes (Q15054234) is used twice. --Succu (talk) 11:04, 3 October 2015 (UTC)
@Succu: Thanks for the explanation. Is there anywhere in Wikidata I can read further on it? All old taxonomic names have to have a wikidata item? Even if there is no single wikipedia article that links to it? Paucabot (talk) 11:10, 3 October 2015 (UTC)
Try Wikidata:WikiProject Taxonomy/Tutorial. A lot of properties use these „old names”. --Succu (talk) 11:23, 3 October 2015 (UTC)
@Succu: Can you explain me [1], please? Paucabot (talk) 15:32, 5 October 2015 (UTC)
A synonym is not a taxonomic rank. Your edits caused a constraint violation. --Succu (talk) 15:35, 5 October 2015 (UTC)
@Succu: Ok. How can I say, then, it's a taxonomic synonym? Paucabot (talk) 15:52, 5 October 2015 (UTC)
We have taxon synonym (P1420) which should allways used with a good reference. --Succu (talk) 16:54, 5 October 2015 (UTC)


Hi :) I see you're an admin on cawiki and you also created Q20910324. It seems that the one person in that category on cawiki intended to add an infobox saying "This user can speak American English." like they have on their sqwiki user page, but the Babel extension is case-insensitive, so instead they're listed as a native speaker of Yanesha' (which has the language code "ame"). Could you have a look and maybe fix it? They already list en-4, so maybe it would be ok to remove it if you don't have a template on cawiki like the one they wanted to use.

If you do change or remove the "AmE" bit from their page, ca:Categoria:Usuaris ame and ca:Categoria:Usuaris ame-N will be empty. Let me know if you delete them and I can delete the Wikidata items too. Thanks.

- Nikki (talk) 13:25, 8 October 2015 (UTC)

@Nikki: Categories deleted in :ca . You can proceed to delete Q20910324 and Q20921769. Paucabot (talk) 16:27, 8 October 2015 (UTC)
Done, thanks! - Nikki (talk) 16:54, 8 October 2015 (UTC)


Bones! Tots els minerals ja es troben a wikidata, no cal crear-los de nou. Els estic arreglant, el que no sé és com esborrar els que has creat que ara estan buits. --Yuanga (talk) 15:42, 14 November 2015 (UTC)

@Yuanga: Els elements de Wikidata els he creat amb aquesta eina. Si els he creat automàticament és perquè no devien tenir l'enllaç a Wikidata, que has de posar en crear l'article. Per demanar l'esborrat, pots veure les instruccions a Wikidata:Requests for deletions. Paucabot (talk) 18:04, 14 November 2015 (UTC)
Quan creo un article poso l'enllaç a Wikidata. Aquests que et comento no són articles que hagi creat jo. --Yuanga (talk) 23:14, 14 November 2015 (UTC)
@Yuanga: Llavors, més que comentar-me a mi que no creï ítems a Wikidata d'articles que no en tenen, hauries de recordar a aquell altre editor d'enllaçar la nova pàgina amb el seu corresponent ítem a Wikidata. Paucabot (talk) 07:18, 15 November 2015 (UTC)
Ho sento si t'ha molestat, només ho deia perquè ho sapiguessis. --Yuanga (talk) 10:57, 15 November 2015 (UTC)
@Yuanga: Me sap greu si ha semblat borde. No era la intenció. La idea era que el més senzill que es pot fer per evitar això és que, en crear un article, s'enllaci també a Wikidata. Si no, després hi ha una feinada de por fusionar ítems de Wikidata, que és la feina que bàsicament faig jo aquí. En tot cas, ja li ho he comentat a Darth Vader. Paucabot (talk) 19:12, 15 November 2015 (UTC)


Good evening.

I would like to inform you that the article "Yourope" in ca:wiki is about an association, while the articles "Yourupe" in the fr:wiki and the de:wiki are about a TV show.

This is why I deleted the ca:wiki entry from the Wikidata Yourope Item Page (Q2601357).

I wish you nice holidays.

KiwiNeko14 (talk) 20:58, 30 December 2015 (UTC)

@KiwiNeko14: Ok. Thanks. It seems to be a clear mistake. Nice holidays to you. Paucabot (talk) 09:26, 31 December 2015 (UTC)

Category marks for non-category itemEdit

Hello, strange edit: [2]. — Ivan A. Krestinin (talk) 21:02, 7 January 2016 (UTC)

@Ivan A. Krestinin: Indeed. It was an automated edit caused by Special:diff/258463456. Thanks for fixing it. Paucabot (talk) 11:35, 8 January 2016 (UTC)
Special:diff/258463456 was reverted before Paucabot`s edit. Looks like Paucabot uses non actual data. It is better always get actual item version immediately before edit. — Ivan A. Krestinin (talk) 12:15, 8 January 2016 (UTC)
@Ivan A. Krestinin: Cabot is my surname and I'm not a bot ;) The edit was reverted after one of my edits: Special:diff/284908175. My edit was on december, 21st and Pasleim's revert was on january, 4th. The tool I was using, Autolist 2, was really up to date but with wrong information. Paucabot (talk) 15:29, 8 January 2016 (UTC)
I am sorry for misreading. User naming traditions joke on me. Strange edit was made January 4th. You add category label and type to this version. The version does not have any category marks. Maybe you need to discuss the situation with Autolist author. Maybe the tool does not process edit conflicts correctly. — Ivan A. Krestinin (talk) 18:33, 8 January 2016 (UTC)
@Ivan A. Krestinin: About my username, am getting used to these kind of things in Wikimedia projects. The exact reason why I made the wrong edit is because in the version you point, the label contains (wrongly) the namespace "Categoria:". For some rason I can't understand, this query does not filter 14 namespace and I have to do it this other way. Paucabot (talk) 19:21, 8 January 2016 (UTC)

Tercer cantEdit

No calia fer un item per Q21979834, ja que ja en tenia un amb interwikis a la Viquipèdia en castellà i italià. --Davidpar (talk) 19:09, 10 January 2016 (UTC)

@Davidpar: Gràcies. Paucabot (talk) 16:29, 11 January 2016 (UTC)

non-free software licenseEdit

proprietary license (Q14624820) is about licenses, not software itself. --AVRS (talk) 19:21, 3 April 2016 (UTC)

parent taxon (P171)Edit

Please do not remove parent taxon (P171) if it is not clearly wrong. Different taxonomies can have different parent taxa. --Succu (talk) 17:43, 24 April 2016 (UTC)

@Succu: I thought it was clearly wrong. I've just removed properties without references. Paucabot (talk) 17:44, 24 April 2016 (UTC)
We havn't a lot good references at the moment. In the case of Craniata (Q84149) you'll find them at Fossilworks, ITIS and NCBI. --Succu (talk) 17:48, 24 April 2016 (UTC)
@Succu: Are you sure about the others, too? Paucabot (talk)
As sure as I can, e.g. Tracheophyta (Q27133). --Succu (talk) 18:04, 24 April 2016 (UTC)


Please do not add mass (Property:P2067): 11,998 kilogram to marcasite (Q409087)‎. thx --Chris.urs-o (talk) 16:16, 18 October 2016 (UTC)

Nova cateEdit

Pau, he obert la "Categoria:Periodistes assassinats"; pero en angles hi ha una diferencia entre "assassinated" i "murdered" por lo que varies VPs de llengues llatines... Hi ha una confusio. Salutacions. --E4024 (talk) 08:01, 22 February 2017 (UTC)

Item to be deleteEdit

In RFD there are one or more item proposed for the deletion created by you. If you do not agree you can participate in the debate --ValterVB (talk) 23:27, 3 March 2017 (UTC)

Tauromàquia a TurquiaEdit

Er Meydanı - panoramio

Ara té imatge! Salutacions. --E4024 (talk) 16:30, 27 October 2017 (UTC)

Templates in cawikiEdit

Hey Paucabot, just for curiosity: why are there so many templates deleted in cawiki? I see a lot of empty template items on my admin worklist—which is not a problem at all, but I am surprised every time. There is no other Wikipedia which has a similar number of cases these days… Cheers, MisterSynergy (talk) 19:04, 10 January 2018 (UTC)

Hi, @MisterSynergy: we have created a bunch of wikidata-powered infoboxes and now we have a lot of unused templates and we're doing some cleaning. Thanks for the surveillance. Paucabot (talk) 19:12, 10 January 2018 (UTC)

Diverses legislaturesEdit

Salutacions Pau!

He intentat crear una sèrie de millores a la plana de Wikidata de la regidora i diputada Maria Antònia Sureda Martí (Q21001563). Pots comprovar que es correcte? Simplement un dubte. En aquest cas que per exemple hi està un any de diputada durant la 7a legislatura i ara tota la novena (per tant amb un període intermedi que no), a banda que son partits distints, tot i que un en certa manera prové de l'altre, el dubte és si està be com ho he fet, tot dins una sola propietat (crec que es diu així) de Diputat o cal crear-ne dos, per exemple en aquest cas, un per a cada legislatura? Gràcies! Si ho he fet malament, disculpa.

Aprofit per fer un altre consulta. Funciona com la VP en el sentit de admissibilitat? Per exemple aquí a WD puc crear un element que sigui Eleccions a Artà 2015 (o Eleccions a l'Ajuntament d'Artà 2015) i les altres dates per exemple? O no seria admissible?

Gràcies crack! Tomeu87 (talk) 00:58, 31 March 2018 (UTC)

@Tomeu87: Bona feina amb les dades de Wikidata. Veuràs que t'hi he fet quatre retocs. Respecte dels dos períodes en què ha estat consellera, diria que no s'ha de posar així. Jo crec que ho posaria en una declaració independent.
Respecte de l'admissibilitat, llegeix Wikidata:Notability. Jo crec que no hi ha d'haver problemes perquè creïs l'ítem que em comentes. Paucabot (talk) 06:30, 31 March 2018 (UTC)

Posar etiquetaEdit

Hola Pau.

Hi ha l'element Q6065133 que no té etiqueta. Entenc que hauria de ser Partit Socialista de Menorca - Verds. Això només ho pot fer un administrador, no?

Salut!--Tomeu87 (talk) 22:40, 3 May 2018 (UTC)

@Tomeu87: No. Això ho pot fer tothom, també. A més, aquí, jo no som administrador. Paucabot (talk) 05:06, 4 May 2018 (UTC)
@Paucabot: Disculpa. Es que cercava algo que posés editar just devora l'etiqueta en si mateix, i es tracte de canviar el contingut del "recuadre". Disculpa la idiotes.--Tomeu87 (talk) 13:33, 4 May 2018 (UTC)


Hola, Per què has esborrat la imatge? --Wikiwiki (talk) 12:06, 24 August 2019 (UTC)

@Wikiwiki: Va ser el passat 8 d'agost i no vaig esborrar cap imatge: Special:diff/993873237. Paucabot (talk) 12:09, 24 August 2019 (UTC)

Dia internacional del poble gitano (Q89786224)Edit

Hola, crec que s'hauria d'eliminar l'ítem actual (Q89786224) i posar-hi l'International Romani Day (Q1285042) per enllaçar amb la pàgina Dia internacional del poble gitano. Corregeix-me, sisplau, si m'equivoco. --AlbertJB (talk) 18:25, 8 April 2020 (UTC)

@AlbertJB: Més aviat fusionaria els dos ítems. Saps fer-ho tu o vols que ho faci jo? Paucabot (talk) 18:33, 8 April 2020 (UTC)
Help:Merge/ca. Paucabot (talk) 18:34, 8 April 2020 (UTC)
M'ho hauria de mirar amb calma, veig que hi ha un giny per fer-ho... Si tu ho tens per la mà, endavant.--AlbertJB (talk) 18:55, 8 April 2020 (UTC)
@AlbertJB: Millor que ho aprenguis a fer, que és molt útil. Si poses el giny, veuràs que és senzillíssim. Si tens dubtes, demana! Paucabot (talk) 18:58, 8 April 2020 (UTC)

Puedo soportar ignorancia y separatismoEdit

Pero no tengo tiempo para perder con gente capaz de hacer esto y esto aunque el segundo sea resultado del primero; Vd es un profesor y ya deberia saber cuales alumnos son mejores que otros. Total, yo ya voy a otro camino. Sin embargo, estaba segurissim@ que estos dos edits iban a pasar en CA:VP. Adeu. --E4024 (talk) 18:02, 24 March 2021 (UTC)

Deletion of media legend (P2096)Edit

Why is removed media legend (P2096) for taxon range map image (P181) in Brown Bear (Q36341)? --Termininja (talk) 20:37, 9 January 2022 (UTC)

@Termininja: Because it is a duplicate of the label. Paucabot (talk) 20:39, 9 January 2022 (UTC)
Ok, but only for Catalan, for Bulgarian it is different. Thanks for the info. --Termininja (talk) 20:43, 9 January 2022 (UTC)
