Welcome to Wikidata, TherasTaneel!

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! --Tobias1984 (talk) 21:47, 26 August 2013 (UTC)


Babel lets you view and edit more than one language on Wikidata. Just add e.g. {{#babel:de-N|en-3|es-1|fr-2|nl-3|it-4|da-0}} to your user page. With the same language codes you can add links to your userpage on Wikipedia e.g. de:User:User123. --Tobias1984 (talk) 21:47, 26 August 2013 (UTC)

Ah, thanks - hate rating myself, so it might be abit low, just in case. TherasTaneel (talk) 16:48, 3 December 2013 (UTC)

Merging itemsEdit

Hallo Theras,

When you are merging items, please use the Merge.js gadget. It helps you nominating, gives the option to always keep the lower number (which is older, so preferable) and makes it a lot easier for the admins to process the requests.

With regards,

Thanks, I'll try to remember that one. TherasTaneel (talk) 05:05, 21 December 2014 (UTC)


Im not sure, but think something went wrong with the connection between th danish page, and the item here. Or, the item simply needs to be develop in order to serve the different records to the local templates.

Speaking about that, when I looked on an item some 30 minutes ago, (an item that looked much more suitable for this template) one thing was missing, which should be applied also for dynasties and noble families, the year for when they went extinct, in case of that they are not still living. But Im not sure how to fix that. Dan Koehl (talk) 21:18, 17 February 2017 (UTC)

I'm not certain what you mean when you say the connection is wrong, but as I've seen you write somewhere the danish da:Skabelon:Infoboks Adelsslægt is made from the swedish sv:Mall:Faktamall adelsätt. The danish one have parameters as e.g. "uddød_dk" and "sidste_mandlige_medlem_dk" which are rather limiting, instead of the swedish one that have certain ones, and in addition optional entries for a random piece of land, so it clearly needs more work, but you'd better talk to the creator of the template about that (perhaps in the da:Skabelondiskussion:Infoboks Adelsslægt), as that type of templates isn't my...area of "expertise" :) If I've misunderstood your question or can be of help, don't hesitate to enquire further. TherasTaneel (talk) 21:37, 17 February 2017 (UTC)

I actually created both, the swedish one some years ago, and yes copied it over to the danish, although not totally completed. What I mean is, that when looking on the danish variety da:Skabelondiskussion:Infoboks Adelsslægt, and then click on to the left on "Wikidataobject", I come to the swedish template sv:Mall:Faktamall adelsätt item Q11063144, with only two instances (one, Dynasti, is I believe only for royal families?).

That pages language interwiki links also looks very confusing, some links are to corresponding templates on other language s, while some go to royal dynasty templates, which most often are separated from noble families.

Maybe this is correct, and the idea is that all noble family templates should meet and merge here, I dont know, but: if you open and read da:Skabelon:Infoboks Adelsslægt and you can see some calls to wikidata: (P53), (P94) , (P237), (P18), (P2096), (P495), (P571), (P1249) etc, which gives me the impression that this danish template was linked to another wikidata item before, which had all those specified records. I may of course be totally wrong with this, and I certainly dont blame anyone, just saw that made some edits, and decided I should ask you. thanks for your work, Dan Koehl (talk) 23:39, 17 February 2017 (UTC)

Hi, sorry for the late reply. I mean user:Rodejong, who started the danish Infoboks Adelsslægt. Anyway, I moved da:Skabelon:Infoboks fyrstehus to "Infobox royal house" at Q23734317, because it says in the template that it's the equivalent, although the naming "fyrstehus" isn't exactly the same as "royal house", but close. And the new Infoboks Adelsslægt to Q11063144, which is for "Infobox noble house". I agree that there are a few, if not many of the language interwiki links that seem to be better linked with Infobox royal house than noble house based on the template naming, but there are also to consider how the template is used in a certain language, despite its name. If you want to, you are free to move them to the correct item, if you're sure its usage is the same, I thought about doing it, but then decided to leave it to the users of those specific templates to correct any mistake themselves.

Translation requestEdit


Can you create en:List of political parties in Azerbaijan and en:Template:Azerbaijani political parties in Danish Wikipedia?

Isabelle de CharriereEdit

Where can I find the article of Isabelle de Charriere in the Danish Wikipedia? Thanks in advance for the writing. Boss-well63 (talk) 14:43, 20 August 2019 (UTC)

Hi, not anywhere currently, as it haven't been written yet. But I'm sure once it's started, it will be added to the others at Q123386. TherasTaneel (talk) 00:32, 22 August 2019 (UTC)
Could you write/translate such an article in Danish or find someone else?Boss-well63 (talk) 22:23, 23 August 2019 (UTC)

Flertydig på WikidataEdit

Jeg bemærkede lige Ole Andersen (Q90500188). Bemærk at den slags "flertydige sider" ikke er nødvendige på Wikidata. Jeg finder dem ofte til mere besvær end gavn. --Hjart (talk) 11:39, 14 April 2020 (UTC)

Hej, hvad mener du med at de ikke er nødvendige? Hvis man fra andre sprog vil finde en flertydig side at kæde sammen med samme flertydige side, er det rart at kunne se hvilken en af er hvad. Beskrivelsen bliver som regel udfyldt af en bot, som desuden ville have oprettet den alligevel. TherasTaneel (talk) 00:29, 15 April 2020 (UTC)
Ok Som en måde at kæde flertydighedssider på diverse Wikipedias sammen, kan jeg godt se det. Men når jeg på Wikidata søger på eks. "Ole Andersen" sætter jeg pris på at der ikke er flere emner end højst nødvendigt + at der er passende beskrivelser på dem der er (hvilket der ikke var på den du lige havde oprettet). Jeg er også stødt på masser af wikidata emner med enslydende labels, hvor der ikke har været flertydigheds emner imellem, så jeg har måske været lidt forvænt. --Hjart (talk) 06:26, 15 April 2020 (UTC)
