Welcome to Wikidata, Silver hr!

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!

Socket puppet?Edit

I see that you keep fighting against Property:P107 and I'll will not reverse your edit.[1] But I can imagine who you are. --Kolja21 (talk) 23:30, 14 April 2013 (UTC)

Edition dataEdit

I have expanded the RFC about references/sources to decide how to store edition data.--Micru (talk) 13:26, 16 May 2013 (UTC)

A replyEdit

Although it's delayed and doesn't address all of your points, I figured I would note my new reply to you at http://www.wikidata.org/w/index.php?title=Help_talk:Basic_membership_properties&curid=8480518&diff=51728600&oldid=51619820. Best, Emw (talk) 03:14, 21 June 2013 (UTC)

RfC on Wikidata's primary sorting propertyEdit

You recently participated in a deletion discussion for P107 - main type (GND). The discussion has been closed, as it is clear that a resolution won't come from PfD, and an RfC has been opened on the matter at Wikidata:Requests for comment/Primary sorting property. You are invited to participate there. Please note that this is a mass delivered message, and that I will not see any replies you leave on this page.

Yours, Sven Manguard Wha? 18:27, 30 June 2013 (UTC)

Manchester syntaxEdit

There's a discussion about how we should express data models at Wikidata:Project_chat#a_language_to_discuss_how_we_use_properties_and_how_we_model_things_in_Wikidata. Since you used OWL's Manchester syntax in our discussion at Help_talk:Basic_membership_properties, I figured you might be interested. If you notice any errors in my explanations of Manchester syntax there, any corrections would be appreciated! Emw (talk) 19:30, 7 July 2013 (UTC)

Why ?Edit

Why did you delete the statement "instance of" -> "chemical compound" for ethanol ? We already discussed the classification in the chemistry task force (see Wikidata:Chemistry_task_force/Tools#Classification_trees and Wikidata_talk:Chemistry_task_force#Classification). So please launch a new discussion if you want to modify this classification before any change. Thank you Snipre (talk) 19:27, 12 July 2013 (UTC)
