Welcome to Wikidata, Planemad!
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.
I've undone your edits on Q22662176 because that is a disambiguation item, not a city in China. The city in China is Songyuan (Q92364). If Mapbox is linking to Q22662176, please update the link to point to Q92364. I've copied the missing labels over, but you might want to check I didn't miss any.
Also, please be aware that making a single edit like Special:Diff/477305549 is rarely a good idea. There are a number of bots and scripts which add labels and descriptions to disambiguation items for lots of languages, so changing just one usually makes the situation even more confusing. :( If you think an item is incorrectly marked as a disambiguation page, then the item either needs to cleaned up completely (restoring an older version can help, depending on the history) or the information that isn't about a disambiguation page should be moved to another item (a new one if you can't find an appropriate existing one). If you come across something like this in future and want some help, feel free to ask me (ping me on IRC if you prefer).
