Welcome to Wikidata, !

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.

Best regards! -- -- -- 23:06, 11 August 2014 (UTC)

Hi, Zeroth, welcome to Wikidata and thank you for your contributions.

I see that your request to delete Q16592106 was deleted by User:Hazard-Bot (20:37, 11 August). Please check if this was a mistake (Bots are also human; or at least operated by humans) and resubmit your request if necessary.

Happy editing! -- -- -- 23:06, 11 August 2014 (UTC)


Hola Zeroth! Me alegro que estés aquí en wikidata :) Quizá lo más fácil sería que con un bot/script descargases primero las relaciones de autores.uy, luego puedes utilizar la herramienta de User:Magnus Manske que se llama Mix n match. Aquí está el Manual. Creo que permite subir datos, si no contacta con Magnus una vez tengas la lista de autores.--Micru (talk) 07:15, 29 February 2016 (UTC)

National Museum of Visual Arts of UruguayEdit

I noticed your proposal. I created Wikidata:WikiProject sum of all paintings/Location/Uruguay to keep track of painting collections in Uruguay, you might want to expand it. I also created Wikidata:WikiProject sum of all paintings/Collection/National Museum of Visual Arts to keep track of the paintings in the museum. It will update automatically every 30 days.

This collection looks quite easy to import. I just wonder how to figure out the type of work (like painting (Q3305213) or drawing (Q93184)). I could give a hand with that if you like. If the links to the high resolution images are online, you can use one of my bots to do the upload using Commons compatible image available at URL (P4765). See for example this edit. That triggered the bot to upload this file which draws most information from Wikidata, do check out the source. So instead of first uploading files and than Wikidata items, I reversed the process.

Thank you!. There are 3 or 4 other institutions that can be added there. This query can give you an idea although it also includes photographs holded by a national archive of photos (tinyurl.com/yc2z3sem). Ill be sure to keep that page up to date. Regards.--Zeroth (talk) 13:41, 2 June 2018 (UTC)
Great. I also did a bit of house keeping on Commons. Multichill (talk) 13:58, 2 June 2018 (UTC)
Amazing @Multichill:, i thank you for your help here and there. I wanted to ask you two things: 1. since im not very experienced in regex, could you check the 'allowed values' of this property proposal?. It should enable to use numbers from 0 to 9 and the characters abBcdis. but i don't know if i set that right in the proposal. Second, i think a week has passed from the original proposal, so i guess you could create it if its ok with you, or ill set the state to 'ready' there. Regards!--Zeroth (talk) 13:22, 7 June 2018 (UTC)
Looks like I missed your reply. Sorry about that. I don't think the regex matches right now with what you're saying, but we'll just fix it when we have more works online. Multichill (talk) 19:00, 20 November 2018 (UTC)


Thanks for your creation of UY-authors. If you can, please add the ISNI or VIAF. (e.g. https://www.wikidata.org/w/index.php?title=Q42392448&action=history) 09:04, 13 July 2018 (UTC)

Has borrado mis fotosEdit

Hola, he visto que has borrado mis fotos bajo el pretexto de que no son fuentes libres cuando sí lo son, pues las extraje de los videos de Desayunos Informales que están subidos bajo licencia cc en YouTube, te agradecería que no lo sigas haciendo, saludos.--A4exocet (talk) 18:13, 17 July 2019 (UTC)
