Welcome to Wikidata, Volgar!
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! Cycn
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.
merge.js and capitalization issuesEdit
Hi! Please see https://www.wikidata.org/?title=Q155076&diff=next&oldid=118850087 . I never use merge.js . Please report a bug regarding capitalizations. merge.js should not overwrite lowercase spellings with uppercase spellings. Regards gangLeri לערי ריינהארט (talk) 22:09, 7 April 2014 (UTC)
- It looks like capitalization of other links is rather arbitrary but does it actually matter? I thought article names are case-insensitive in Wikipedia. —Volgar (talk) 07:43, 8 April 2014 (UTC)
- I spend a lot of time fixing these issues. Correct spelling is a main part of any language. Nouns are starting with capitals mainly in German and its dialects; the remaining languages - these are 98% of all languages - use lowercase letters for nouns.
