Welcome to Wikidata, Pharos!

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!

MET reportEdit

Hi Pharos, you should have a look at Wikidata:Database reports/Constraint violations/P3634. Contains some interesting things to fix. Multichill (talk) 12:15, 18 November 2017 (UTC)

MET higher resolution image suggestionsEdit

Hi, I fixed a number of issues in User:Pharos/MET higher resolution image suggestions, but the page has not been updated from 8 December 2017 à 19:31‎. How to update it? Regards, Yann (talk) 10:28, 14 May 2019 (UTC)

Louis George Gregory and George GregoryEdit

It may be that I misunderstood your indication that Louis George Gregory was named after George Gregory to indicate that the latter two parts of the former's name were from the latter's name. In fact Louis did take his stepfather's family name, but by odd coincidence, his original family name was the same as his stepfather's given name. Please restore statement if you feel it appropriate in this context. Thanks. --A12n (talk) 14:54, 13 February 2020 (UTC)

Never mind - reverted the deletion. --A12n (talk) 18:15, 13 February 2020 (UTC)

@A12n: Hm, if he only took "Gregory" but not "George", then maybe the property shouldn't be used, or it should be used in a qualified way.--Pharos (talk) 17:08, 14 February 2020 (UTC)
