Welcome to Wikidata, Vahurzpu!

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!

Wikidata:Project chat/Archive/2019/06#Import global warming potential (P2565) from a PDF tableEdit

Hi Vahurzpu, I only noticed now that you extracted the wrong column, i.e. GTP 100-year instead of GWP 100-year. Would it be possible you to update de:User:Leyo/GWP, where I manually assigned the respective WD items to the substances in order to import them to WD? --Leyo 12:52, 24 July 2019 (UTC)

@Leyo: It should be fixed now. I guess my eyes just scanned to the last column, since it looked almost like what I was looking for. Let me know if there's anything else from that table that would be useful; I have an inconveniently-structured but machine-readable spreadsheet of the entire thing. Vahurzpu (talk) 02:09, 25 July 2019 (UTC)
Great, thanks a lot! I don't think I need anything else from that table. --Leyo 20:20, 25 July 2019 (UTC)


Hi there! Thank you for supporting the proposal. TBH, I'm quite curious of the information you've been working with :) could you give me a little details? Best, Nomen ad hoc (talk) 22:49, 8 August 2019 (UTC).

@Nomen ad hoc: A bunch of articles on US high schools have sections for alumni in a semi-structured format, and many of them include the graduating class. While a bunch of them are unreferenced, it doesn't seem like it would be too difficult to screen those out. Right now I've been bogged down with mwparserfromhell issues, but I just think I found a workaround and will probably return to the import soonish. Vahurzpu (talk) 22:54, 8 August 2019 (UTC)

Verb sensesEdit

Hi, i saw you added senses to verbs erroneously. Please make sure the q item describes an action before adding.--So9q (talk) 08:29, 5 December 2019 (UTC)

@So9q: Yeah, sorry about that; I was trying out MachtSinn and didn't pay close enough attention to the lexical categories at first. I have something to do today, but I'll run through my contributions tomorrow and fix anything I screwed up. Vahurzpu (talk) 22:42, 6 December 2019 (UTC)
Perfect! 😃--So9q (talk) 07:54, 7 December 2019 (UTC)

Url and languageEdit

Hello. I trying to make a query like your example. Hello. I want to find all items that have a reference with reference URL (P854) -> http://www.cystat.gov.cy/mof/cystat/statistics.nsf/All/49231EC7D83BD403C2257DCD00356DBF/$file/POP_CEN_76-POP&HH_PLACE_RESID-140115.xls?OpenElement with also (at the same reference) language of work or name (P407) -> English (Q1860) and Greek (Q9129). Is the query correct? Base on the results, I think is OK, but I need a second opinion.

SELECT DISTINCT ?item ?itemLabel {
  ?item ?prop ?statement.
  ?statement prov:wasDerivedFrom ?ref.
  ?ref pr:P854 <http://www.cystat.gov.cy/mof/cystat/statistics.nsf/All/49231EC7D83BD403C2257DCD00356DBF/$file/POP_CEN_76-POP&HH_PLACE_RESID-140115.xls?OpenElement>.
  ?ref pr:P407 wd:Q1860.
  ?ref pr:P407 wd:Q9129.
  SERVICE wikibase:label { bd:serviceParam wikibase:language "[AUTO_LANGUAGE],en". }

Try it!

@Xaris333: That looks correct to me. Vahurzpu (talk) 16:24, 4 January 2020 (UTC)
Thanks! Xaris333 (talk) 17:52, 4 January 2020 (UTC)

One more thing please. I want to find all items that have a reference with reference URL (P854) -> http://www.cystat.gov.cy/mof/cystat/statistics.nsf/All/59681B67FE82FD39C2257AD90053F3FA/$file/POP_CEN_11-POP_PLACE_RESID-EL-171115.xls?OpenElement with also (at the same reference) title (P1476) -> Απογραφή πληθυσμού 2011 (Greek language) and title (P1476) -> Census of population 2011 (English language).
