Welcome to Wikidata, Sascha!

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.

Bot issueEdit

Hi Sascha,

Here the bot changed the label rather than stripping an in-existing suffix. Would you revert? --- Jura 20:40, 7 April 2015 (UTC)

Thanks for noticing, and apologies for this! I tried to revert this edit, but you were faster. I've stopped the bot now, until I figure out how this could happen. I will also go through the bot's list of edits from today. -- Sascha (talk) 20:50, 7 April 2015 (UTC)
No problem. I tried to do a few clean-ups on labels and descriptions based on this. Maybe you want to use it as well. --- Jura 04:32, 8 April 2015 (UTC)


Your bot has been listed at Wikidata:Requests for permissions/Removal/Inactive bot accounts as being inactive for over two years. As a housekeeping measure it's proposed to remove the bot flag from inactive bot accounts, unless you expect the bot will be operated again in the near future. If you consent to the removal of the bot flag (or do not reply on the deflag page) you can rerequest the bot flag at Wikidata:Requests for permissions/Bot should you need it again. Of course, You may request retaining your bot flag here if you need the bot flag. Regards--GZWDer (talk) 12:43, 26 June 2017 (UTC)



Are you in contact with the Chakma Incubator editors? Do you have a particular interest in this language? --Amir E. Aharoni (talk) 14:12, 6 September 2019 (UTC)

  • I know Bivuti who is one of the drivers to bring the Chakma language online, but I don’t speak the language myself. But do tell if you’d like an introduction! — Sascha (talk) 13:15, 3 October 2019 (UTC)

Monolingual code requestsEdit

Hi Sascha, some time ago, you requested a series of language codes (phab:T222426). It seems that this finally works ([1]). @Mbch331: contributed the relevant code. --- Jura 10:01, 5 May 2020 (UTC)
