Logo of Wikidata

Welcome to Wikidata, RolandUnger!

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!

Hi there! You are listed as one of the Ambassadors for wikivoyage and wikidata :) It would be great if you could add a link to the location for bot approval for the wikivoyage you are involved with the the list here (Wikidata:Wikivoyage_migration#Bot_approval). Thanks in advance! ·addshore· talk to me! 07:53, 21 July 2013 (UTC)

No user pages links in elementsEdit

Please, take a look at the notability policy: Wikidata elements must not contain only user pages links. Regards, Andreasm háblame / just talk to me 00:48, 25 July 2013 (UTC)

Maybe the cause was a wikidata bug. Lydia Pintscher told me it should not be possible but the creation of user data items was possible. From my point of view the administration of interwiki links with no additional information makes sense. --RolandUnger (talk) 04:48, 25 July 2013 (UTC)

ISO Code für StädteEdit

Die Eigenschaft Property:P300: EG-GZ gilt nicht für die Stadt al-Giza, sondern für das Gouvernement. Ich habe es deshalb gelöscht. Bei den meisten Großstadt-Artikeln in Wikipedia wird die Zeitzone und der ISO-3166-Code angegeben (besonders im englischen). Daher halte ich es für sinnvoll diese Eigenschaften auch für Städte anzugeben (wie es bei vielen Städten auch schon vor meinem Edit so war). Zudem dauert der Datenabgriff für 1000 Städte (mit bekannter Q-Nummer) ca. 1h ==> dh. mal eben schnell den Bundeslandcode ermitteln dauert deutlich länger. Und dann heißen die Bundesländer/States/Präfekturen/Districts/Govern überall anders - was einen einfachen Datenbankzugriff erschwert. Weihnachtliche Grüße, Aleks-ger (talk) 22:35, 15 December 2013 (UTC)

Danke für die Weihnachtsgrüße. Wir sollten aber schon genau sein: ISO-3166-2-Code gilt für Verwaltungseinheiten, (meist) nicht für Städte. Viele Orte besitzen bereits die Angaben zur politischen Zugehörigkeit. Wenn WikiDate dann noch (wie geplant) den Zugriff auf andere ID als die eigene ermöglicht, dürfte es kein Problem sein, auf die entsprechenden Daten aus den Verwaltungseinheiten zuzugreifen. Da die entsprechende Eigenschaft "liegt in der Verwaltungseinheit" heißt, dürfte es auch keine Probleme mit dem individuellen Namen geben. --RolandUnger (talk) 06:05, 16 December 2013 (UTC)

Änderung in Flughafen Stuttgart Q158732Edit

Hallo Roland,
Du hast in Flughafen Stuttgart Q158732 in der Adresszeile (P6375) etwas geändert. Leider kann ich nicht erkennen, was geändert wurde. Ich hatte diese Daten gerade erst eingegeben und möchte für künftige Fälle das gleich richtig machen. Verrätst Du mir, was verkehrt war? Danke --Eduard47 (talk) 14:23, 31 July 2019 (UTC)

Ich habe nur die strasse in straße geändert. --RolandUnger (talk) 15:03, 31 July 2019 (UTC)
Danke, mit Brille wär das nicht passiert. Du hast Recht: Schreibweise in Deutsch ist mit "ß". Habe jetzt auch den Link zur Fundstelle geändert, denn der Flughafen Stuttgart verwendet beide Schreibweisen. Jetzt passen Schreibweise und URL zusammen. --Eduard47 (talk) 15:09, 31 July 2019 (UTC)

By appointmentEdit

Hi Roland. How do you think we can model places for which access can only be done through appointments? NMaia (talk) 10:38, 17 October 2020 (UTC)

RE State cannot be an islandEdit

Hi Rowland, Éire or Ireland is the name of the of both Ireland (an island) and Ireland (a State)! Ref.https://europa.eu/european-union/about-eu/countries/member-countries/ireland_en and Ref.https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ireland Ériugena (talk) 21:04, 19 November 2020 (UTC)

I know this. --RolandUnger (talk) 05:24, 20 November 2020 (UTC)

Call for participation in the interview study with Wikidata editorsEdit

Dear RolandUnger,

I hope you are doing good,

I am Kholoud, a researcher at the King’s College London, and I work on a project as part of my PhD research that develops a personalized recommendation system to suggest Wikidata items for the editors based on their interests and preferences. I am collaborating on this project with Elena Simperl and Miaojing Shi.

I would love to talk with you to know about your current ways to choose the items you work on in Wikidata and understand the factors that might influence such a decision. Your cooperation will give us valuable insights into building a recommender system that can help improve your editing experience.

Participation is completely voluntary. You have the option to withdraw at any time. Your data will be processed under the terms of UK data protection law (including the UK General Data Protection Regulation (UK GDPR) and the Data Protection Act 2018). The information and data that you provide will remain confidential; it will only be stored on the password-protected computer of the researchers. We will use the results anonymized (?) to provide insights into the practices of the editors in item selection processes for editing and publish the results of the study to a research venue. If you decide to take part, we will ask you to sign a consent form, and you will be given a copy of this consent form to keep.

If you’re interested in participating and have 15-20 minutes to chat (I promise to keep the time!), please either contact me on kholoudsaa@gmail.com or use this form https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSdmmFHaiB20nK14wrQJgfrA18PtmdagyeRib3xGtvzkdn3Lgw/viewform?usp=sf_link with your choice of the times that work for you.

I’ll follow up with you to figure out what method is the best way for us to connect.

Please contact me using the email mentioned above if you have any questions or require more information about this project.

Thank you for considering taking part in this research.



Re: Many mistakes with your quickstatementsEdit

I'm so sorry ... I just realized that. I will correct everything as soon as possible. Thanks for the warning and sorry again --Adert (WMIT) (talk) 16:00, 7 June 2022 (UTC)
