Welcome to Wikidata, Hardwigg!

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!

What do you think about ordering the CSS dataype classes in the same order as the classes are ordered in Special:ListDatatypes?

I did it for a copy of your CSS here: [1]

I adjusted my own here [2].

I think it makes cooperation between different parties easier. I don't think the order in Special:ListDatatypes is optimal, but it is a neutral common ground. FreightXPress (talk) 14:23, 29 April 2015 (UTC)

@FreightXPress: Seems good. I think Special:ListDatatypes is only ordered by creation date, but agree it's a good base for consistency. I copied your edits into mine. -Hardwigg (talk) 04:49, 2 May 2015 (UTC)


I now have the properties in one object, [3]. FreightXPress (talk) 15:07, 29 April 2015 (UTC)


Dear Hardwigg,

with german language enabled the statement labels are vanished.--Kopiersperre (talk) 07:53, 10 July 2015 (UTC)

@Kopiersperre: Thanks for letting me knowǃ It should be fixed now. --Hardwigg (talk) 07:41, 11 July 2015 (UTC)
You might have to do a hard refresh (Usually ctrl+shift+r, but depends on your browser) to get things to 'update'. Let me know if it's still not working. --Hardwigg (talk) 07:48, 11 July 2015 (UTC)
Ok, that solved my problem. Do you know, how it's possible to have more than 4 languages in the "description box"?--Kopiersperre (talk) 12:19, 14 July 2015 (UTC)
@Kopiersperre: I couldn't find a native way to do it :/ I was able to create a script that will let you though. See User:Hardwigg/show-more-languages.js for instructions on how to use it. Hope that helps! -Hardwigg (talk) 01:38, 16 July 2015 (UTC)
