Welcome to Wikidata, Stefan Weil!

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! Please, take a look at the notability policy: Wikidata elements must not contain solely user pages links. Regards,

Hello Stefan. I saw your post at Andrea´s talk, and given that I'm online, I will answer it for her. Userspace pages are not allowed on Wikidata, with some specific exemptions. Therefore, your userpage does not meet the threshold for notability to have an item. For more abour our rules, check Wikidata:Notability. Regards. — ΛΧΣ21 04:57, 6 August 2013 (UTC)

Hello ΛΧΣ, could you please explain the specific exemptions? I read Wikidata:Notability and found nothing about exemptions. --Stefan Weil (talk) 05:00, 6 August 2013 (UTC)
The Notability page says: "To be valid, a link must not be a talk page, nor a MediaWiki page, nor a special page, nor a user page, nor a subtemplate, nor a file." These are the exmeptions. Cheers. — ΛΧΣ21 19:40, 6 August 2013 (UTC)
Exactly, it must not be a user page - that's why Andrea removed my links. But why can Andrea herself have links for her user page? I don't mind that she has those links, because they are useful. I simply want the same right for me. --Stefan Weil (talk) 20:43, 6 August 2013 (UTC)
Hi, Stefan. As stated above, Wikidata notability policy does not allow Wikidata elements (those starting with Q...) that contain only user pages links. Nor me nor any user shall have any element with such user pages links, since it goes against policy and must be deleted. Instead, interwikis should be included directly within every user page, like this or that. I hope this explanation was helpful. Do not hesitate to contact me if you have further doubts, Andreasm háblame / just talk to me 23:54, 6 August 2013 (UTC)
Hola Andrea, this was really helpful and clarifies that issue for me. Thanks, --Stefan Weil (talk) 04:30, 7 August 2013 (UTC)
