Welcome to Wikidata, WiseWoman!

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!

Your questionEdit

Hi WiseWoman,

I tried to answer the question you had on this talkPage.
Hope you're satisfied enough, if not ask a real expert, especially for Q#1 where I just entered an educated guess. Klaas `Z4␟` V:  17:10, 27 January 2019 (UTC)

Explaining a revertEdit

Hey, I just reverted a subclass statement you added to street (Q79007). Just wanted to explain that this was a fine edit, however it's already a subclass of geographical object (Q618123) as a subclass of road (Q34442). You can see that from this graph: https://w.wiki/UCA. I use the classification script by TomT0m (talkcontribslogs). --SilentSpike (talk) 16:50, 15 June 2020 (UTC)

Hi, thanks for explaining. I had added it because in Juridicum (Bonn) (Q1304258), located on street (P669) Adenauerallee (Q355872) was marked that the type constraint was that a street had to be a geographical object in order for it to be a location. Adding the subclass to street seemed to solve the problem. How else can this be solved? --WiseWoman (talk) 17:19, 15 June 2020 (UTC)
This seems like a false positive issue with the constraints themselves, I've just started a discussion on project chat here: Wikidata:Project_chat#Type_constraint_false_positives_(not_respecting_class_inheritance). --SilentSpike (talk) 17:55, 15 June 2020 (UTC)
It seems more like a problem with the item - it is describing both the building and the institution that resides in the building. --WiseWoman (talk) 20:59, 15 June 2020 (UTC)
