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.

SongyuanEdit

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).

Needs assessment for Wikidata Movement ResourceEdit

Hi Planemad,

CIS-A2K is planning to invest some resources from May-June 2020 to create community movement resource (CMR) materials in English and different Indic languages for Wikidata in the form of tutorials, handbooks, infographics, videos, animations etc. The aim of this initiative is to build a pool of resource materials for Wikidata eventually, which will serve as ready-made handy references for new as well as experienced users. You are requested to fill up this form, so that we can understand your needs on different topics of Wikidata. You are also very welcome to actively participate in the process and help us build the CMR with your different areas of expertise.

Indian scientists datathonEdit

Hi Planemad,

You are receiving this message as you are one of the participants of WikiProject India on Wikidata and/or a subscriber of the Wikidata India newsletter.

Hope you and your loved ones are safe and sound during this ongoing COVID-19 pandemic situation.

This is for your kind information that, from 22nd May, 2020 Friday to 24th May, 2020 Sunday, a datathon will be happening on Indian scientists on Wikidata. The lack of data about Indian scientists, their works and publications on Wikidata is the reason behind conducting the datathon. Considering the ongoing pandemic, the datathon will also focus on scientists working on SARS-CoV-2 and COVID-19.

The tasklist of the datathon is flexible. Participants can choose their own preferred task on this topic

Hoping for your active participation.

Take care and stay safe,
