Welcome to Wikidata, Christian140!
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! Cycn
For merging items, you may want to use the merge.js gadget from help page about merging. It has an option "Request deletion for extra items on RfD" to automatically place a request to delete the emptied page. This way of nominating makes it a lot easier for the admins to process the requests.
한국인 성명에 대하여 일괄적으로 로마자 표기법을 따르는 것에 전적으로 찬성합니다. 그런데 이름을 음절별로 하이픈을 넣는 것이 어떨까요? 그 이유는 위키데이터의 영문 이름이 커먼즈에 그대로 반영되어 분류를 결정 짓습니다. 커먼즈를 살펴본 바 음절별로 하위 분류를 분류하고 있어서 체계화하는 데 더 나을 것 같다는 생각입니다. 감사합니다. Sawol (talk) 11:32, 30 December 2020 (UTC)
@Sawol: Maybe, but I think the spelling with hyphen is very old-fashioned. The Revized Romanization of South Korea's default way of spelling names is without hyphen. The form with hyphen is accepted, but nothing more. And for McCune-Reischauer, the pure system also doesn't use any hyphens. However, there are the German, American and North Korean variant that allow hyphens, but not for pure Korean names 나라 and 이슬, only for sino-Korean names. I actually thought also the Revized Romanization would not allow hyphens for pure Korean names, but I looked it up again and apparently, it is even allowed for those names. --Christian140 (talk) 12:25, 30 December 2020 (UTC)
Call for participation in the interview study with Wikidata editors
I hope you are doing good,
I am Kholoud, a researcher at King’s College London, and I work on a project as part of my PhD research that develops a personalized recommendation system to suggest Wikidata items for the editors based on their interests and preferences. I am collaborating on this project with Elena Simperl and Miaojing Shi.
I would love to talk with you to know about your current ways to choose the items you work on in Wikidata and understand the factors that might influence such a decision. Your cooperation will give us valuable insights into building a recommender system that can help improve your editing experience.
Participation is completely voluntary. You have the option to withdraw at any time. Your data will be processed under the terms of UK data protection law (including the UK General Data Protection Regulation (UK GDPR) and the Data Protection Act 2018). The information and data that you provide will remain confidential; it will only be stored on the password-protected computer of the researchers. We will use the results anonymized (?) to provide insights into the practices of the editors in item selection processes for editing and publish the results of the study to a research venue. If you decide to take part, we will ask you to sign a consent form, and you will be given a copy of this consent form to keep.
If you’re interested in participating and have 15-20 minutes to chat (I promise to keep the time!), please either contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or use this form https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSdmmFHaiB20nK14wrQJgfrA18PtmdagyeRib3xGtvzkdn3Lgw/viewform?usp=sf_link with your choice of the times that work for you.
I’ll follow up with you to figure out what method is the best way for us to connect.
Please contact me using the email mentioned above if you have any questions or require more information about this project.
Thank you for considering taking part in this research.
