Welcome to Wikidata, Thierry Caro!

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! --Stryn (talk) 18:25, 5 February 2013 (UTC)

Ternopil Encyclopedia IDEdit

Hi, Thierry Caro. Could you create an ID? Thanks. --Arxivist (talk) 12:26, 24 April 2020 (UTC)

GroveEdit

Salut. As-tu vu que le Grove, fameux dictionnaire d'art d'Oxford, est en ligne ? Cela mériterait une propriété Wikidata à mon sens, non ? ;)

Porte-toi bien, Nomen ad hoc (talk) 19:58, 25 April 2020 (UTC).

@Nomen ad hoc: Oui. C'est intéressant. Je ne connaissais pas. Je vais mettre ça dans ma liste des propriétés à créer mais celle-ci est très longue, contenant des choses ajoutées il y a des années maintenant. Donc si tu es plus motivé… Thierry Caro (talk) 21:02, 25 April 2020 (UTC)
Ok ! Moyennement intéressé pour le coup j'avoue ; par contre, si tu veux que je lance des propriétés qui attendent depuis plus longtemps... et que tu sais être dans mes domaines d'intérêt... n'hésite pas à me les signaler. Nomen ad hoc (talk) 21:04, 25 April 2020 (UTC).
@Nomen ad hoc: Le droit, la recherche, la fonction publique, c'est ça ? Sur la recherche, j'ai ça par exemple. Ou ceci. Ou encore ce truc. Ou encore lui. Tout ceci étant à sérieusement vérifier d'abord. Comme tu le vois, j'ai juste pris des trucs de la liste sans trop réfléchir. Thierry Caro (talk) 21:09, 25 April 2020 (UTC)

MathWorld mix'n'match catalogueEdit

Hi! The catalogue was broken and now it is ok, and it shows that you matched 3 thousands entries. Does it mean that I did something wrong and you corrected it? Sorry for probably a stupid questions, but I do not understand it :) Wikisaurus (talk) 14:34, 27 April 2020 (UTC)

@Wikisaurus: What I did is click on Action then Manually sync catalog. This took all the items that already used the property here on Wikidata and set them as Fully matched in the catalog. This is a way to force an update of the catalog with matches that have not been done through Mix'n'match. I am marked as the matcher but all I did, really, is just click on something once. OK. So now you say the catalog was broken. Do you mean the links were leading to nowhere? If so, and as they do work now, it means that someone else fixed that. We cannot know who it was but this user has to be a catalog editor, which allows one to change the formatter URL in a given Mix'n'match catalog. I am one of those guys but I am not responsible for that fixing, if there was one to begin with. Thierry Caro (talk) 14:45, 27 April 2020 (UTC)
Thierry Caro, no-no, not that bad; but there were neither "manually matched" nor "automatically matched" entries, and it was quite slow to match items. Now it is much better, thanks! Wikisaurus (talk) 15:05, 27 April 2020 (UTC)

Proposition de nouvel identifiantEdit

Bonjour Thierry,
Je viens de proposer un nouvel identifiant pour le football canadien : Wikidata:Property proposal/Canadian Football League player ID. J'ai suivi un peu ce qui tu avais fait, en 2017, pour Wikidata:Property proposal/Canadian Baseball Hall of Fame ID. J'ai cependant quelques questions.

  • En ajoutant {{Ping project|Sport results}} et {{Ping project|Canada}} sur la page, est-ce que les participants sont automatiquement notifiés ou il faut le faire manuellement ?
  • Est-ce que les difficultés que j'ai mentionnées sur la proposition pourraient empêcher ou rendre plus difficile l'alimentation automatique de cet identifiant ?
  • D'ailleurs je n'ai qu'une vague idée de la façon de le faire, si tu veux bien je te recontacterai à ce sujet, je viens de constater que tu en as fait des tas.
  • Si tu veux donner ton avis sur la proposition, je t'en serais reconnaissant.

À bientôt, --Cortomaltais (talk) 18:50, 21 May 2020 (UTC)

Mass addition of wrong claimsEdit

[1] - other person. MrProperLawAndOrder (talk) 19:23, 25 May 2020 (UTC)

It is a known problem. I imported stuff with multiple problems from Mix'n'match. I have fixed some problems and others are now working on it, I believe. Thierry Caro (talk) 21:35, 25 May 2020 (UTC)
