Welcome to Wikidata, William Graham!

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! Peaceray (talk) 04:26, 14 March 2018 (UTC)

Artists in Canada record number suggestionsEdit

I noticed you proposed Artists in Canada record number (P5239) some time ago. I made a query to easily find people who should probably have a link. These are Canadian artists (country of citizenship (P27) -> Canada (Q16)) with National Gallery of Canada artist ID (P5368), but no Artists in Canada record number (P5239) link. Maybe you want to help to link them up? Multichill (talk) 22:30, 6 December 2018 (UTC)


Yeah, it's mine. I'm sorry. I'm going to stop the Bot's activity and do whatever it takes. Can you tell me what the procedure is? --Vsuarezp (talk) 19:50, 13 April 2019 (UTC)

@Vsuarezp: I am slightly unclear myself, but I would read Wikidata:Bots. Since the runs are not fully automated, and you're using QuickStatements, you may not need approval. I would however clearly identify on both your personal page and the bot's page that you are the owner and how to get in touch with you. More questions can be answered on Wikidata talk:Bots William Graham (talk) 20:02, 13 April 2019 (UTC)

Wikinews topic categoriesEdit

Hi. I noticed you'd moved a Wikinews topic cat from Federal Election Commission (Q2705072) to Category:Federal Election Commission (Q8445285). This sometimes trips folks up: Wikinews topic categories are connected to the item of the corresponding Wikipedia article, not the associated Wikipedia category. There are, iirc, a few other cases where non-mainspace pages of a sister project are associated with Wikipedia articles; such as Wikisource author pages. --Pi zero (talk) 20:40, 18 June 2019 (UTC)

@Pi zero: Thank you for letting me know. I didn't realize there was an exception for Wikinews topics. William Graham (talk) 20:42, 18 June 2019 (UTC)
