Welcome to Wikidata, Hugo.arg!

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!

Recent changes[edit]

Hello, I have reverted your link removal [1]. Perhaps you are interested in en:Wikipedia:Wikidata#Suppression_of_Wikidata_links for local handling of links? Holger1959 (talk) 00:23, 13 June 2013 (UTC)

about merge[edit]

Hi, Hugo.arg. Thanks for your contributions. When you remove links from an item and add them to anther item, if the removal leaves one item without any link (e.g. your edits on Q5643177 and edits on Q49084), then please consider directly merging the items, not deleting and adding the same links. For how to merge automatically, please see Help:Merge#Automatic merge. Hope that is helpful. Best regards. --Neo-Jay (talk) 02:48, 2 July 2015 (UTC)

WMF projects - translation of Wikidata labels and descriptions[edit]

lang=bat-smg : ?lang=bat-smg&props=31,218,219,220,506,1406&q=claim[1800]žemaitėška

Hello Hugo.arg! Yesterday was Wikipedias 15th birthday. I want to let you know that the number of d:Wikidata:Database reports/WMF projects there is also the page Wikipedia versions has increased to more then 409. The list contains pages from Wikibook project pages to Wikiversity and Wiktionary project pages. You may be interested in adding Wikidata labels and descriptions in your language. Only a few, maybe five. Please follow also the discussion at d:property talk:P218 and comment there.
Please see also: m:Talk:Facebook pages. I added more property related queries at user:I18n/sandbox#property_Wikimedia_database_name.
Maybe you can translate this and use it somewhere: If this is your first edit at wikidata: First go to Wikipedia_versions?setlang=bat-smg. This will select the interface language for you. Then open the label links you want to translate in a new browser tab for each link. You should see an edit button and you should be able to insert the label in the corresponding field using a click/doubleklick. Same for the description and alias. Save your changes and go to another label link from the main list. Good luck!

Hi Hugo

There are multiple Olifants rivers in South Afrca that are mixed up across wikis. I am trying to untangle them. Why do you mess them up again? Jcwf (talk) 17:29, 10 September 2016 (UTC)

I hope, now I tagged all of them correctly. Some untransferred interwiki links confused me. Hugo.arg (talk) 17:34, 10 September 2016 (UTC)
You removed the nl. link, I put it back. I also added a picture at It is in .svg so the names can easily be changed into your language.Jcwf (talk) 17:49, 10 September 2016 (UTC)
