Welcome to Wikidata, GZWDer!

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! --Bill william compton (talk) 14:26, 28 March 2013 (UTC)

Open question[edit]

At Wikidata:Property proposal/Wolfram Language entity code, there is still an open question about the format. Can you address this in your closure ?

Duplicate taxa[edit]

Could you please find out how many of these duplicate entities were created? Pinging related editors Peter coxhead (talkcontribslogs) & Edibobb (talkcontribslogs). — Tom.Reding (talk) 10:50, 18 February 2018 (UTC)

I’ve seen a few on my watchlist. I’ve been switching the links back to the original Wikidata items when i catch them, like for Pseudowintera traversi and Chondracanthus exasperatus today. NessieVL (talk) 15:55, 18 February 2018 (UTC)
Another list on User:Pasleim/projectmerge/enwiki-nlwiki, please clean up. Sjoerd de Bruin (talk) 14:44, 19 February 2018 (UTC)
I will do once I again have access to my computer (2 days later).--GZWDer (talk) 14:48, 19 February 2018 (UTC)


Your bot is mass creating duplicate Wikidata pages for the mass articles that have been shoddily robot created on Cebuano Wikipedia without any regard of linking them to entities on other wikipedias. After creating the duplicates, your bot continues to add information to these duplicate pages (like coordinates, which are more accurately given on the English Wikipedia articles on these same entities). I'm talking now about places in the United States with already existing articles on other Wikipedias, but I'm sure Cebuano Wikipedia is full of these articles without a Wikidata link. 12:49, 21 February 2018 (UTC)

It is more easy to find duplicates in Wikidata than in Cebuano Wikipedia itself; Wikidata:Database reports/Constraint violations/P1566 lists pages with duplicated Geonames ID and those with only cebwiki links are to be merged. Pasleim's projectmerge is another tool to find duplicate.--GZWDer (talk) 16:47, 21 February 2018 (UTC)
I will live that to you Wikidata wizards to fix the problems you willingly and intentionally create. 17:13, 21 February 2018 (UTC)
However, you may want to know, unless you already don't, that many Wikidata entries have a false GeoNames item linked by a robot that has had no idea what it is linking and where. Then it doesn't help if the cebwiki article actually has the correct item. Your tool will not find all of them. It is a hopeless swamp and a total robot-created mess. 17:19, 21 February 2018 (UTC)

Please slow down[edit]

Hi, can you please slow down editing with GZWDer (flood)? You are causing noticeable dispatch lag. Cheers, Hoo man (talk) 07:58, 23 February 2018 (UTC)

@Hoo man: I have stopped some processes. If this is not enough, comment here again.--GZWDer (talk) 08:01, 23 February 2018 (UTC)
Please slow down further… ideally you should be well under 20 edits per minute… but certainly under 100 edits per minute. Cheers, Hoo man (talk) 08:23, 23 February 2018 (UTC)
I've stopped all processes involving cebwiki. Let me know whether it is enough.--GZWDer (talk) 08:25, 23 February 2018 (UTC)
Seems you are still at close to 300 edits per minute, which is still way to high. The immediate problems are mitigated, but in order to keep this sustainable you should slow down more. Cheers, Hoo man (talk) 08:30, 23 February 2018 (UTC)
