Welcome to Wikidata, Uncommon fritillary!

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, don't hesitate to ask on Project chat. 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!

Bonvenon al Wikidata! – Welcome to Wikidata!Edit

Welcome Uncommon fritillary! You may add some help tools to user:Uncommon fritillary/common.js or (if you use the vector skin) to user:Uncommon fritillary/vector.js . Please see User:Rotsaert8000 (in Esperanto), Wikidata:Tools, and Wikidata:Tools/User scripts for candidates you may add. On the user:i18n-page you will see all WD gadget links. It takes time to see what fits most of your interests. Good luck!

GNIS MatchesEdit

I wanted to say hi and thanks for helping out with the GNIS Buildings import on Mix-n-match. I've been wanting to make it down to a DC Wikipedia meeting... maybe that will be my New Years resolution. : Wolfgang8741 (talk) 03:36, 16 December 2018 (UTC)



Could you please merge Société d'étude des sciences naturelles de Nîmes (Q46730069) and Société d'étude des sciences naturelles de Nîmes (Q59770658)? Apologies for having created a duplicate...

Thanks in advance and best regards. 12:18, 22 December 2018 (UTC)

Copying my response to the user talk page (which was to an anonymous IP address):

I could merge these but am wondering if one isn't an earlier form of name for a society that later used a different form, rather than two forms of name used concurrently by the same entity. I would want to do some digging into more reference sources just in case they deserve to stay separate (catalog librarians like me tend to want to be reasonably sure). For now I'd say let's keep both forms, & I'll see if I can find more information about the society/societies. Thank you for contacting me! Uncommon fritillary (talk) 01:54, 23 December 2018 (UTC)

Interview InvitationEdit


I noticed your editing stats in Wikidata, which led me to look up your profile. Thank you for all the great work!

I’m reaching out to you because I’m working on a research project about understanding what motivates editors like you to contribute to Wikidata. We’re also interested in learning about how you feel your contributions are being used outside of Wikidata. Since you are such an active community member, I thought you might also be interested in helping to build the broader community’s knowledge about Wikidata, and why it matters.

If you’re interested, let’s schedule a time to talk over Zoom, or whichever platform you prefer. If you are interested, please fill in a questionnaire or reply directly. The conversation should take about 30 min.

Hope you have a great day,
