Welcome to Wikidata, Taketa!

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!

new updates, see my tp. --Ricordisamoa 18:13, 4 August 2013 (UTC)


I checked 2000 edits before/after it. I can't find the same problem. and I can't find error in statements or categories related to this. Maybe a bug in AutoList? If you find this problem again please tell me.--GZWDer (talk) 09:41, 25 May 2014 (UTC)


Hi Taketa, I have nominated you here as administrator. I hope you will accept my nomination (you have to  ), the Dutchies have to take over Wikidata! JurgenNL (talk) 08:47, 2 June 2014 (UTC)

Hi Jurgen, thanks for the nomination. I have replied on the nomination page. Sincerely, Taketa (talk) 09:44, 2 June 2014 (UTC)

Congratulations, Dear Administrator!Edit

Deutsch | English | español | français | italiano | Nederlands | português | русский | +/−

An offering for our new administrator from your comrades... (our gift is better than the one at Commons or Meta)

You have your gun; now here's your badge: {{User admin}}/{{#babel:admin}} and {{Admin topicon}}. Enjoy!

Taketa, congratulations! You now have the rights of administrator on Wikidata. Please take a moment to read the Wikidata:Administrators page and watchlist related pages (in particular Wikidata:Project chat, Wikidata:Requests for comment, and Wikidata:Administrators' noticeboard), before launching yourself into page deletions, page protections, account blockings, or modifications of protected pages.

Please feel free to join us on IRC: #wikidata-admin @ irc.freenode.net. If you need access, you can flag someone down at @ irc.freenode.net. You may find Wikidata:Guide to Adminship to be useful reading. You may also want to consider adding yourself to meta:Template:Wikidata/Ambassadors, and to any similar page on your home wiki if one exists. (Check Wikipedia:Wikidata/Wikidatans (Q14964498).)

Please also add/update the languages you speak to your listing at Wikidata:List of administrators. You may also like to add your username to this list if you would not like that items you delete at RfD get marked as deleted automatically. Again, welcome to the admin corps!

--Vogone (talk) 12:21, 9 June 2014 (UTC)

Hi Vogone, thanks for the info. I'll have a read. Sincerely, Taketa (talk) 14:25, 9 June 2014 (UTC)
Congratulations also from my side. -- Bene* talk 14:32, 9 June 2014 (UTC)
Hi Bene*, thanks for adding the admin permission. Hope to see you around, Taketa (talk) 14:51, 9 June 2014 (UTC)
Hi there! Congratulations even I don't know you! :D Jianhui67 talkcontribs 00:12, 10 June 2014 (UTC)
Sorry I'm late. Congrats! --AmaryllisGardener talk 14:09, 10 June 2014 (UTC)
Hi Jianhui67 and AmaryllisGardener, thanks for the best wishes. I have seen how active you guys are so if I run into anything I know where to go :). Cheers, Taketa (talk) 14:47, 10 June 2014 (UTC)

Re: AdminshipEdit

Hi Taketa, thank you for your consideration. I would be glad to help reducing the backlog as an admin, althought I think I have not much time to expand my activities here beyond deletions. If you think the Wikidata community is fine with this limits, I will accept the nomination--Dr Zimbu (talk) 20:28, 18 June 2014 (UTC)

Hi Dr Zimbu, thank you for your response! Great to hear. I'm sure people will be happy with all the help we can get, and you can get familiar with other functions in due time. I have started the nomination and have posted a link on your talkpage. Sincerely, Taketa (talk) 20:41, 18 June 2014 (UTC)

Module:Infobox (Q13107716) and Module:InfoboxImage (Q8244473)Edit

A lot of wikis (en, zh, fr, es, it, ja, pt, vi, ...) use Lua modules to show infoboxes. Any plan for zh:User:Taketa/Images etc. to support it?--GZWDer (talk) 11:47, 20 June 2014 (UTC)

Hi GZWDer, Multichill made this on nl.wiki. I am simply spreading it to different projects, since I found it very usefull (with permission :). As far as I know he wants to introduce it on en.wiki. But you will have to ask him. I have enough trouble getting the fr.wiki templates to work right now. Sincerely, Taketa (talk) 12:54, 20 June 2014 (UTC)

Script errorEdit

Hi, could someone please have a look at the "Script error" thing on page Wikidata:List of properties/Summary table/en? Some Bot error?

Btw, what will happen after my proposal at Wikidata:Property proposal/Place#Gemeindenummer in Brasilien? Regards, --Emeritus (talk) 10:26, 10 July 2014 (UTC)

Hi Emeritus, I assume you come to me since my name is on your talkpage :). Both those topics are not something I work on or really can help you with. I will pass your questions on to people who work on those pages. Sincerely, Taketa (talk) 11:06, 10 July 2014 (UTC)
Lijkt me een software-probleem, is een taak van de ontwikkelaars. Romaine (talk) 06:40, 11 July 2014 (UTC)

Thank youEdit

Hi, Taketa. Thanks for your welcome message. --Madalberta (talk) 15:16, 1 October 2014 (UTC)

Hi Madalberta, you are welcome ;). - Taketa (talk) 15:18, 1 October 2014 (UTC)


Dear Taketa thank you again for your proposal. I think that after almost 6 years on Wikipedia projects and distributor on Wikidata almost from the beginning, I’ m ready to accept your proposal.--Nikosguard talk 06:41, 7 October 2014 (UTC)

Hi Nikosguard, thank you for your response! Great to hear. I will start a nomination when I have a bit more time and will at that time inform you about it on your talkpage. - Sincerely, Taketa (talk) 15:52, 8 October 2014 (UTC)

Five Minutes of HeavenEdit

Hi, Taketa. I'm trying to add the movie in Spanish WP "Cinco minutos de gloria" and I can't. It used to be easy, but something has changed and the option "add" is not shown on my PC. Thanks for your help.Madalberta (talk) 21:06, 18 January 2015 (UTC)

Hi Madalberta, thank you for letting me know. The problem here was that the article already had it's own item. Because articles can only be used on one item at a time "Cinco minutos de gloria" could not be added to "Five Minutes of Heaven" as well. I have merged the two items and created a redirect. If you run into any problems in the future, let me know. All the best, Taketa (talk) 22:14, 18 January 2015 (UTC)

Ayuda para fusión de historialesEdit

El artículo en:Jute tiene dos páginas en wikidata y no enlaza con el artículo es español Yute, estos son:

capsularis (Q107211)

14 KB (159 palabras) - 11:17 4 ene 2015

capsularis (Q3190566)

12 KB (71 palabras) - 13:04 13 ene 2015

ver aquí ¿puedes fusionar los historiales de ambos artículos? Gracias --Jcfidy (talk) 09:48, 19 January 2015 (UTC)

Hi Jcfidy, they are different. Q3190566 is about a plant (= es:Plantae). Q107211 is about the fabric (= es:Textil). Like es:Cereal and es:Pan they are not the same. I cannot merge them. Sincerely, Taketa (talk) 10:09, 19 January 2015 (UTC)
  OK Muchas gracias, lo intentaba arreglar por la petición de un usuario en el café de es-wikipedia pero ya veo que son dos artículos diferentes. Un saludo --Jcfidy (talk) 11:16, 19 January 2015 (UTC)

About a deleted category and other category namesEdit

Hi Taketa, "Kategori:No local image and no image on Wikidata" deleted by an admin in Turkish wikipedia, I think that's wrong. Maybe you want to care that category and others. I recommend changing the names and maybe you will change the names. Thank you, regards...Vikiçizer (talk) 22:45, 11 April 2015 (UTC)

cannot edit WDEdit

Hello, since a few time, I can't edit wikidata. I´m allowed only to create a new object, but further edits are commentated with: forbidden! what´s going on?? --Hannes 24 (talk) 17:17, 22 May 2016 (UTC)

Dear Hannes 24,
the problem is not just you but is a general problem. People who use Internet Explorer on Wikidata get an error message. You can try Chrome or Firefox instead, or wait a little while until the problem is resolved. For more information see Wikidata:Project_chat#Problems_with_IE.
Sincerely, Taketa (talk) 17:54, 22 May 2016 (UTC)

Regranting the Rollbackright to User:PigsonthewingEdit

Hi Taketa, I do not find an entry at Wikidata:Requests for permissions/Other rights („Has promised not to use rollback in edit wars“). --Succu (talk) 20:31, 24 June 2016 (UTC)

In particular, I would like you (Taketa) to please provide written evidence that he promised to not use rollback in edit wars. In person correspondence (e.g. at Wikimania) is not sufficient - everything should be recorded on-wiki for transparency.--Jasper Deng (talk) 04:54, 25 June 2016 (UTC)
Hi Succu and Jasper Deng, I'll ask Pigsonthewing to reply. And will make a post on other permission after. All the best, Taketa (talk) 07:18, 25 June 2016 (UTC)
Hi Taeta, Thank you for your kind note on my talk page. I see that you have met my 'fan cub'. It is very disappointing to note their failure to abide by the Wikidata policy at Wikidata:Assume good faith in regard to the statement you made, and their attempts to invent a new policy and require you to comply with it. However, as you request, I confirm that my use of rollback will comply with the guideline at Wikidata:Rollbackers. Andy Mabbett (Pigsonthewing); Talk to Andy; Andy's edits 08:16, 25 June 2016 (UTC)

Global images initiative; on englishEdit

hi, love the Global images initiative. however, recently on english wikipedia, the category started including geo-stubs, which appear to have an image. see en:Category:No local image but image on Wikidata. there are around 4000 biographies mixed in there with the 20000 geo-stubs. please advise. Slowking4 (talk) 14:34, 31 May 2017 (UTC)

Dear Slowking4, thank you for your message. I am glad to hear you like the images initiative! When I started on the English Wikipedia, I only included biographies as an easy test. People must be adding the template to new geography related templates, which would explain the new articles [1]. See here for all templates. This should not be a problem. If it is a problem, you could consider splitting the category into two. Make one for biographies, and one for other topics. Here is an example of the split I made on the Dutch Wikipedia, seperating soccer players from other biographies [2]. If you want, I can assist with a split, though I would need a few weeks, as I am a bit busy at the moment. Though, I notice you are blocked on enwiki, so it should not be necessary for you personally I assume. Anyways, I hope this helps. If not, please specify the problem you see and your expectations. All the best, Taketa (talk) 14:49, 31 May 2017 (UTC)

My RFAEdit


I was re-reading my failed RFA. I wanted to say thanks for the constructive criticism. They were justified and I look forward to fixing them. Thanks.

MechQuester (talk) 15:21, 1 June 2017 (UTC)

Dear MechQuester, thank you for your message. I look forward to seeing your future work. You can always re-apply when you are ready. All the best, Taketa (talk) 16:54, 1 June 2017 (UTC)

Abusive nameEdit

Hello.Is not it good to act with the owner of this abusive name?Thank you ديفيد عادل وهبة خليل 2 (talk) 13:10, 5 June 2017 (UTC)

Dear ديفيد عادل وهبة خليل 2, I do not see the name as offensive. Therefor I see no reason to remove the pages. However, I have now reviewed all their global edits, and they are all useless. All he seems to do is post his signature in a dozen projects. He is blocked already in several projects for this reason. As such, I have blocked the account. Sincerely, Taketa (talk) 13:16, 5 June 2017 (UTC)

Deletion RecordEdit

I'm trying to find the deletion you performed on Q55743785 so that I can revert and provide a link to a patent filing to support the claim for this entry existing.

Dear Asparish, a patent filing does not make someone noteworthy. Moreover, Wikidata is not meant for self promotion. Please find a different platform for writing about yourself. Sincerely, Taketa (talk) 01:02, 3 August 2018 (UTC)


What was this one about? Somehow your deletion log doesn't include the former label. Is this a bug or did you suppress it on purpose? --- Jura 18:48, 17 February 2019 (UTC)

Dear Jura, I deleted it on purpose. I did not suppress the log. The deletion log should be visible as far as I know. I can see the log at least [3]. I deleted it because the only wikilink was deleted on enwiki due to lack of references [4]. Since the item did not contain any other links or references it no longer meet the notability criteria. I hope this answers your question. Sincerely, Taketa (talk) 19:44, 17 February 2019 (UTC)
  • Looks good. Thanks for deleting it. I tried to find some other info on the person, but it doesn't seem worthwhile. BTw, if you look at the deletion log of another admin, the label of the deleted item is included [5]. This avoids having to ask them. The deletion function was changed some time ago to allow that. --- Jura 19:54, 17 February 2019 (UTC)

Translation requestEdit


Can you translate and upload these articles in Limburgish Wikipedia:

The articles from English Wikipedia should not be long.

Yours sincerely, Matricatria (talk) 18:02, 5 June 2019 (UTC)

Dear Matricatria, though I can read and speak Limburgish, I cannot write it properly so I cannot help. Also I do not do mass article translation requests into a language you yourself cannot speak. I prefer helping people create articles into their own language. I hope you can find someone else to help. Sincerely, Taketa (talk) 23:28, 5 June 2019 (UTC)
