Logo of Wikidata

Welcome to Wikidata, ChristianKl!

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.
  • Contents – The main help page for editing and using the site.
  • Project chat – Discussions about the project.
  • Tools – A collection of user-developed JavaScript tools to allow for easier completion of some tasks.

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.

Hi! You was created local version for MediaWiki:Wbqc-violation-message-single-value. In my opinion, this is strongly incorrect way for multilingual site as Wikidata. This is may be done in some cases in the "monolingual" sites like single Wikipedia edition, but in Wikidata, Commons and Meta all changes should be made through Phabricator request and then through TranslateWiki. Otherwise, translators will not be able to maintain the correct display in their language.

ChristianKl (talkcontribs)

In a Wikisystem I don't see why doing changing should require an off-wiki process.

As far as using Translate Wiki in this cases goes, I think that's an issue with the initial setup of the message and not with the edit.

Kaganer (talkcontribs)

About "issue with the initial setup of the message" - maybe this is true, but it is not a local message and cannot be changed locally.

ChristianKl (talkcontribs)

Wikidata policy is supposed to be done on-wiki. Here the development team made a policy decision about the meaning of of a single value constraint and I reverted that to our existing meaning.

If there's a problem with translation not working for this message in a way that gets picked up by the software that might be a development issue.

Kaganer (talkcontribs)

If this is local correction - no problem. But in these caces, please, to inform translators and make sure that all translations are also changed locally. Otherwise, it turns out to be extremely incorrect in relation to those who use a non-English interface.

ChristianKl (talkcontribs)

I added the <translate></translate> to the page. Does that do what you want?

Please don't add translate tags to pages in the MediaWiki namespace. That breaks the software and these messages are already translatable. I fixed it.
