Welcome to Wikidata, Funcrunch!

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!

Revisions Thanks for updating Q27950749 but you don't need to delete old values--those can be very helpful. Instead, just add the new one (with a citation, like you did), and give the most accurate number the "preferred rank". That way, if a robot pulls data from us, it will pull the newest or most accurate count. Thanks. —Justin (koavf)TCM 16:13, 5 December 2016 (UTC)
Thanks for the helpful info; I don't use Wikidata often. The number of deaths for this tragedy is likely to keep increasing for the next few days at least... Funcrunch (talk) 16:15, 5 December 2016 (UTC)
Thank you Agreed, it's awful. It's useful for us to have this kind of info though for understanding the accident and how it unfolded. If we know a death count on day 1 was x and day two was y then that is useful info. Unfortunately, we'll probably have to update this a few more times. —Justin (koavf)TCM 17:26, 5 December 2016 (UTC)
