Logo of Wikidata

Welcome to Wikidata, X meta!

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, don't hesitate to ask on Project chat. 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.

Birth nameEdit

Hi, please don't create birth name (P1477) claims if the name of the person is not different from birth. You can use name in native language (P1559) instead. Thibaut120094 (talk) 10:51, 15 June 2015 (UTC)

Can I use name in native language (P1559) if the name is official name, Dharma name (Q1543672), Q11579192 or stage name (Q1055303) ? Should I use birth name (P1477) if the name is official name?
name in native language (P1559) は正式名称, Dharma name (Q1543672), Q11579192, stage name (Q1055303) でも使えますか? 正式名称は birth name (P1477) を使用したほうがいいのではないですか? --X meta (talk) 12:12, 15 June 2015 (UTC)
