Welcome to Wikidata, Whidou!

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.

système d'exploitationEdit

Why you specified "système d'exploitation" in Amoeba (Q473800)? --Valerio Bozzolan (talk) 23:40, 13 December 2016 (UTC)

@Valerio Bozzolan: Because it is an operating system? --Whidou (talk) 23:45, 13 December 2016 (UTC)
Sorry if I'm only fr-1: I mean you know that "exploitation" is something related to offensive IT security. It's the same in French or I'm wrong? --Valerio Bozzolan (talk)
@Valerio Bozzolan: "Exploit" in english can indeed be related to computer security, but that's not the case in french, except when used as an anglicism. "Système d'exploitation" means "Operating system", you can check this translation on the Wiktionary: fr:wikt:système d'exploitation. You can also have a look at Q14646, Q1186761 or Q3251801, all of those are operating systems and have "système d'exploitation" in their french description. I hope this helps.

Ah! OK. Understood. And understand me if IMHO this is really scaring. :D --Valerio Bozzolan (talk) 11:05, 14 December 2016 (UTC)

Would you like to contribute to a WikiProject COVID-19 ?Edit


I saw you contributed to COVID-19 (Q84263196) and I was wondering if you would be interested in helping to create a Wikidata WikiProject COVID-19.

The goals would be initially (of course, they can be changed):

  • create a data model for instances of disease outbreak (Q3241045).
  • monitor the quality of the pages about national outbreaks listed in 2019–20 COVID-19 outbreak by country and territory (Q83741704).
  • curate the wikidata items relevant for describing the outbreaks and the virus itself.
  • curate and improve the information on Wikidata about scientific articles regarding the coronavirus (similar to the Wikidata:WikiProject_Zika_Corpus).
  • think and develop ways to process these items to improve access to information (for example, via automated articles in languages that currently do not have pages about country-specific outbreaks).

Would you like to participate in this effort?

I am trying to gather the Wikidata editors actively involved in the topic.I believe that if we act together, we can have a shot at aiding the global effort in containing the pandemic.
