Logo of Wikidata

Welcome to Wikidata, Salpynx!

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.

Best regards!

Open LibraryEdit

Hi! Thank you for the work you are doing merging duplicates on Open Library. I would like to leave you this list of possible duplicates (all the items having two or more Open Library ID (P648) - 2591 items at the moment). Bye, --Epìdosis 13:37, 26 June 2019 (UTC)

Thanks for the query link! I'll keep working through them. I am using the duplicate listing to improve data on both Open Library and Wikidata and trying to keep them both in sync. The Wikidata links are a great way to identify duplicates and collect together the works of those authors in one list. Salpynx (talk) 08:35, 29 June 2019 (UTC)

Thank you very much! Now I have two better query links:

When you have time, please have a look at the first list. Bye, --Epìdosis 21:19, 11 August 2019 (UTC)
