Welcome to Wikidata, Csisc!

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.

Test with Orcbot [edit]

Hey Csisc, I tried to do some test edits with Orcbot, but got the reply: "assertbotfailed: You do not have the "bot" right, so the action could not be completed." How can I perform the test? Eva (talk) 14:59, 14 Aug 2020 (MEST)

@EvaSeidlmayer: Theoretically, you can perform the test on However, I do not know if you can find there sufficient data to curate. --Csisc (talk) 13:57, 14 August 2020 (UTC)[reply]
@Csisc: Applying Wikibase-CLI I want to push some items I copied from the "real Wikidata" to the test instance. The idea is to curate those items with Orcbot afterwards in order to check it. What is the API URL of the test instance? Eva (talk) 16:21, 15 Aug 2020 (MEST)
@EvaSeidlmayer: The URL is --Csisc (talk) 14:46, 15 August 2020 (UTC)[reply]
@Csisc: I changed the properties of the items (on which I want to test) to those used in the test instance. However, when I try to push I get the error message "TypeError: Cannot read property 'unit' of undefined.." - do you have an idea how I can fix it? Sorry for bothering Eva (talk) 21:07, 15 Aug 2020 (MEST)
@EvaSeidlmayer: You have to debug the code to find where the type deficiency occurs. Please think of putting several lines as comments. --Csisc (talk) 14:58, 16 August 2020 (UTC)[reply]


Just wanted to point out that the CFR claims you added here appear to be violating constraints. Your usage of the "based on heuristic" qualifier seems to be incorrect. I see your edits are semi-automated, so I wanted to let you know in case you had something configured incorrectly. —{ CrypticCanadian } 01:54, 13 April 2020 (UTC)[reply]


Hi, why are you undoing my edits ? I made the latest value as a preferred value in each property following: P1120, P8010 and P1603. In order to call one value in other projects and not all values, because we are already interested in one value and is the latest value. Can you explain to me what is the problem here and what is right? --محمد الهرهوري (talk) 20:30, 29 April 2020 (UTC)[reply]

محمد الهرهوري: I thank you for your answer. The problem here is that the coronavirus pandemic in Tunisia is still ongoing. This means that the value that you have set as preferred now will be obsolete within 24 hours. It will useless and extremely time-consuming to set a preferred value and then change it every day. That is why I invite you not to do this setting again. This setting works for data such as the population of a country, a GDP of a country or any other type of data that changes on a yearly basis. However, this does not seem to work for a data that changes on a daily basis. Furthermore, I am adding this epidemiological information to Wikidata and I use it to feed a a SPARQL-based dashboard for the surveillance of COVID-19 pandemic in Tunisia. Your changes alter the work of this national dashboard. --Csisc (talk) 20:50, 29 April 2020 (UTC)[reply]
Csisc: OK, I understand.. but we use the {{#invoke:Wikidata2}} module in Arabic Wikipedia and we want to get one value what is the latest value.. Can you tell me how we can do that ? Is not it better to use one value and constantly update with its history update too, so we will have one value and one time and both of them are always the latest ? So we acn use those data without problems. --محمد الهرهوري (talk) 21:11, 29 April 2020 (UTC)[reply]
محمد الهرهوري: This can be certainly done using Lua scripts. You can ask about that in Wikidata Community Portal. Thank you. --Csisc (talk) 21:23, 29 April 2020 (UTC)[reply]
Csisc: Thank you, now I have known that I can use "withdate" parameter in the module for getting the latest value.. and sorry for this inconvenience and misunderstanding. --محمد الهرهوري (talk) 21:46, 29 April 2020 (UTC)[reply]

Invitation for the WikiProject COVID-19 call tomorrow (Monday, 15 of June)[edit]

Hello Houcemeddine,

How are you? I hope things are all right. I saw the OpenCitations Bot, how is it going??

I would like to invite you to the tomorrow (Monday, 15 of June) call of the Wikiproject COVID-19 at 15:00 UTC .

This is the link for the call:

This is the link for the etherpad:

The WikiProject seems to be losing momentum. Perception of the size of COVID-19 as an enormous problem is fading (at least in Brazil). That might be a sign of things getting better, but it is also very dangerous (as they might not be that better yet).

In tomorrow's call, I would like to discuss with you two important and related questions:

- How can this WikiProject best serve the anti-COVID-19 effort?

- What can this project offer for the post-COVID-19 Wikidata world?

As usual, if you have any topics to add, you can do so either before at the Project Meeting Page or at the meeting. or at the meeting.

I hope you can make it!

All the best,

Corrupted dates[edit]

Hi, please see publication date (P577) at this edit. Precision is set as day, but day and month values are set as 00. Could you fix used code to avoid corrupted date values creation? — Ivan A. Krestinin (talk) 06:30, 21 August 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Ivan A. Krestinin: I thank you for your comment. We are still working on the bot in GitHub ( The edits you have seen are only experimental. In such a situation, the object is meant to be an year. That is why days and months have been set as 00. However, we did not find out how to succeed to add object as an year. I will do some tests on Artesunate versus quinine in the treatment of severe falciparum malaria in African children (AQUAMAT): an open-label, randomised trial (Q107998445) to see how to solve this matter. After that, I will update the source code in GitHub. I have added an issue about this ( --Csisc (talk) 09:49, 21 August 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Ivan A. Krestinin: ✓ Done. I have gone through the source code of Wikibase Integrator and found out how to solve this interesting issue. --Csisc (talk) 10:04, 21 August 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Great! Thank you! — Ivan A. Krestinin (talk) 10:40, 21 August 2021 (UTC)[reply]
