Welcome to Wikidata, Jsamwrites!

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!

Would you check before creating more English verbs?

Thanks Pamputt for noticing the error. I wonder whether there are some issues with MixNmatch, since the languages that I had created did not show me the existence of any other item pages with the same names. John Samuel 10:51, 26 March 2018 (UTC)

Pamputt (talkcontribs)

Actually in Mix'n'match, there are two differents categories: matched automatically (which worked based on the name of the language) and not matched which means that Mix'n'match does not find any item with exactly the same language name. I did not check but I guess that all the items you created were in the later category. This mean that before creating items, one has to check manually whether an item does not already exist. And in most of the case, an item already exists. Now I am merging one by one almost all items you created. If you want to help me, you are more than welcome :)

Jsamwrites (talkcontribs)

I will also check and merge them. John Samuel 18:06, 28 March 2018 (UTC)

Pamputt (talkcontribs)

I finally managed to merge all items that were doublon. Please check carefully in the future not to recreate a lot of doublon items.

Hey Jsamwrites, on my empty item list I find lots of items which have been created by you roughly a week ago with Mix'n'match (Q-ID ranges Q50922xxx and Q50923xxx). Are you aware of them, and can you please make sure that they either get repaired or deleted? Thanks and regards!

Hi! I have noticed you created some new university items. I have merged some of them with existing items. Could you please double-check the others? It would be great if you could either merge them with their namesakes, or add more statements and descriptions on your new items so that we can distinguish them from the others. The list of newly-created university items can be found here: Wikidata:WikiProject Universities/New items

Thanks! − Pintoch (talk) 11:10, 2 April 2018 (UTC)
