Welcome to Wikidata, Trade!

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!

Are you still having an issue with this, or did you figure it out yet? — Cirt (talk) 16:15, 27 February 2013 (UTC)

Yes, but now Lisabeth H. Muhrer dont work. --Trade (talk) 16:27, 27 February 2013 (UTC)

Different itemsEdit

Hi, please see the difference between Department of Justice, Rating, Titles and Qualification (Q1750377), an organisation, and Brazilian Advisory Rating System (Q26323090) the rating system it maintains. As a general rule, we have different items for different entitites/things. – Máté (talk) 06:06, 4 November 2018 (UTC)

Songs and singlesEdit

See Q56085802, Q56085788 and Q1886329 for examples (see also the deletion discussion for B-side (DEPRECATED) (P1432), and Wikidata:WikiProject Music#Overview). There are about a few hundred more of these items, but currently there have been no semi-automatic imports to establish this sort of item structure, and this probably breaks some Wikidata infoboxes.

video game publishersEdit

Hi, thanks for creating items about video game publishers. But it would be nice to add to these items some sources, identifiers and more corporate properties (at least some basic one like country (P17), headquarters location (P159), industry (P452) and official website (P856).--Jklamo (talk) 07:02, 15 January 2019 (UTC)

Finding information and identifiers about small video game companies can be surprisingly hard. What do you use? Trade (talk) 22:47, 16 January 2019 (UTC)

Creating propertiesEdit

Hi! It seems that you have tried to create a property "content descriptor" at Q61519786, but you have created an item instead. Creating a property is slightly more complicated than creating an item: you must propose the property to the community first (see Wikidata:Property proposal). If you need help for that, let me know on my talk page. − Pintoch (talk) 10:06, 8 February 2019 (UTC)

Your modificationEdit

Hello, You canceled me after my patrol. While:

  • Where does this information come from? This information should have a reference (2232 ?).
  • Depending on the site, the number is higher.
  • The 4 successive changes by the IP in less than 3 minutes looks like vandalism.
  • If the information goes back from this page, the date inserted by the IP is false (and the number too, QED). In addition, the information was valid 3 years ago.
  • The rb doesn't need an explanation, so when you Undo, write why.

In view of my explanation above, I am forced to reverter your modification as long as this information is hazardous. Cordially. --Eihel (talk) 00:30, 27 March 2019 (UTC)

Your edits on Robin Williams (Q83338)Edit

Hi, could you please revert your recent string of edits to Robin Williams (Q83338)? You have added a suicide method to the cause of death property on that item. Suicide methods are neither a manner of death, nor a cause of death, but rather a suicide method. - 2600:1702:31B0:9CE0:B117:3B68:E7EB:EC39 00:31, 12 April 2019 (UTC)

In your opinion, what's the correct way to use suicide methods items? --Trade (talk) 12:23, 12 April 2019 (UTC)

Creating propertiesEdit


It seems that you have tried to create a property "content descriptor" at Q63871158. In Wikidata we have a distinction between items and properties, and what you created is an item, so you will not be able to use it as a property as you probably expected. To get this created as a property, you need to propose it: see Wikidata:Property_proposal. If you need any help with that process, let me know on my talk page.

Keep up the good work! − Regards, ZI Jony (Talk) 09:35, 18 May 2019 (UTC)

Hey ZI Jony, i just wanted to created something like Wikidata property related to sport (Q21818626) but with weightlifting instead of sport. As i remember, the only difference between Q63871158 and something like Wikidata property related to cycling (Q23660994) was the subject. Kind regards. Trade (talk) 21:54, 19 May 2019 (UTC)

Id'er for filmdatabasenEdit

Hej. Jeg har et værktøj til at fiske id til filmdatabasen på - det skal være et nummer på både DNF film ID (P1804) og Danish National Filmography person ID (P2626), da API kun bruger det og ikke kender hvad for en url, som brugergrænsefladen bruger. Søgedelen er ikke perfekt for navnet. Det skal jeg have kigget på. --Steenth (talk) 20:24, 28 May 2019 (UTC)

Metacritic vales order on Watch Dogs: Bad Blood (Q64577202)Edit


I don’t fully get your latest changes on Watch Dogs: Bad Blood (Q64577202). Was that to get the IDs in a specific order?

Jean-Fred (talk) 15:46, 13 June 2019 (UTC)

Jean-Fred: Pretty much, yes. Seeing Metacritic IDs with platforms in the 'wrong' order is somewhat a pet peeve of mine. I wish there was a way to standardize it, so to say. I really hope it doesn't bother you? --Trade (talk) 16:00, 13 June 2019 (UTC)
Not really because for me there’s no 'right' or 'wrong' order between platforms :) So I guess I find it kind of pointless, but hey, we all have our pet peeves of the sort so if that makes you happy, more power to you :)
(at some point in the not-so-far-future, I believe we will split VG items into one-per-platform anyways, so that won’t be an issue anymore ;-)
Jean-Fred (talk) 20:08, 13 June 2019 (UTC)
Jean-Fred, unfortunately, it's also a very tedious process. First you have to remove the item, then you either have to place it at the bottom or replace another item. Then you need to find somewhere to the replaced item and etc. I've always wondered why we can't just click edit, move the order of the items around and then just save the whole thing?

Different items by casual confirming on Igromania IDEdit

Please note that you do different items on Igromania ID, are you confirm all items by casual way? If yes, please stop and let me control all the items that are wrong. Kirilloparma (talk) 22:49, 3 July 2019 (UTC)

Damn, i could have sworn all the Rayman games had their correct names in Mix'n'Match. --Trade (talk) 22:51, 3 July 2019 (UTC)
From tomorrow I will start checking the items on Igromania mix'n'match catalogue, please don't match anything for now, I need to determine where are the wrong items, thank you. Kirilloparma (talk) 23:01, 3 July 2019 (UTC)
Kirilloparma, as said before all the Rayman items in mix'n'match had their proper name. --Trade (talk) 22:19, 4 July 2019 (UTC)

Aliases with parenthetical disambiguatorsEdit

Hi! In this diff, you added the alias "Joseph (The Simpsons)" for Joseph (Q65576697). Was it your intention to claim that English texts commonly use that string to refer to this entity? We don't normally include parenthetical disambiguators in our labels and aliases. Instead, disambiguation is done in the description and in the item properties. See Help:Aliases for more. Cheers, Bovlb (talk) 21:39, 16 July 2019 (UTC)

So many items have the name 'Joseph', making the item quite cumbersome to find again hence why i used the the parenthetical disambiguators. I think it's okay to do when you have more than 20 items with the exact same name in the same language. --Trade (talk) 23:21, 16 July 2019 (UTC)
If I understand your response correctly, you are saying that the answer to my question is "no", and that you are adding this disambiguated alias in the hope that it will make one of your preferred entities easier for you to search for. As a comparison, here is a search for "nelson simpsons" which produces Nelson Muntz (Q1511163) as the first result despite the fact that it has no such disambiguated alias. Cheers, Bovlb (talk) 03:58, 17 July 2019 (UTC)

Regarding NASA biographiesEdit

Hi! I've seen your edits to the property. Could you have a look at Property talk:P2030 and comment my proposal about the new properties to be created? If you want, you can also proceed with some property proposals. Thank you in advance, --Epìdosis 22:40, 26 July 2019 (UTC)

Music websitesEdit

Hello. I think we have still lacks of some music sales websites (in fact they aren't all streaming services) for artists id and we are missing yet more ids for albums, singles and tracks even for those popular streaming services. It would be like 20 missing websites for albums, 20 missing websites for songs etc. I have it on eye but I have no idea when I will get motivation for it. Eurohunter (talk) 07:55, 4 August 2019 (UTC)

I noticed you just created Wikidata property related to music streaming (Q66118123) so it's kinda hurried move due to they all aren't providing streaming services. Btw. would be good to have all related "categories" of music properties items at Wikidata property related to music (Q27525351) (related to song, record chart, streaming service etc.). Eurohunter (talk) 08:00, 4 August 2019 (UTC)
Eurohunter, 'it's kinda hurried move due to they all aren't providing streaming services.' which identifiers are you referring to?
'Btw. would be good to have all related "categories" of music properties items at Wikidata property related to music (Q27525351) (related to song, record chart, streaming service etc.).' Could you please eleborate? --Trade (talk) 13:15, 4 August 2019 (UTC)
