Welcome to Wikidata, Fæ!

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, 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.

Best regards!

Use of "instance of"[edit]

Hi, you added instance of (P31)  LGBT history (Q17897) on several items, but Wikidata are not like Wikimedia categories, they have a well-defined meanings. These statements do not make sense. If you want to say that two items are somehow related but can't really describe the nature of this relation, you can use see also (P1659) (not sure this is really useful in these cases though). --Zolo (talk) 07:29, 14 April 2017 (UTC)

Does this mean that we should have more relevant instance labels, like LGBT historical places, or LGBT historical events, which then may be instances of LGBT history? Similarly we may need LGBT events, like pride marches. -- (talk) 07:37, 14 April 2017 (UTC)
Yes, <Oscar Wilde's tomb> <instance of> <LGBT historical place> could work (LGBT historical place would be subclass of (P279) of historical place, and perhaps facet of (P1269) of LGBT history). --Zolo (talk) 07:43, 14 April 2017 (UTC)

James Davidson[edit]

Could you provide a source for James N. Davidson (Q1580469)'s sexuality? I've tried to find something, but I couldn't find any results. The property requires a source. Sjoerd de Bruin (talk) 09:44, 25 May 2017 (UTC)

The en.wp article has sources, see its talk page. -- (talk) 11:10, 25 May 2017 (UTC)
