FYI, it looks like you just created some duplicates: invalid ID (L1368) (invalid ID (L487)) and invalid ID (L1369) (invalid ID (L482)). There is currently no warning if you are about to create a duplicate lexeme.

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.

Thanks. Sadly, we cannot merge them. ~~~~
Would you check before creating more English verbs?
Multilingual captions testing is available
The early prototype for multilingual caption support is available for testing. More information on how to sign up to test is on Commons. Thanks, happy editing to you. - Keegan (WMF) (talk) 17:06, 24 April 2018 (UTC)
Reminder: Share your feedback in this Wikimedia survey
Please stop creating items for languages from https://tools.wmflabs.org/mix-n-match/#/catalog/1045 Most of the items you have created have to be merged with already existing items.
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)
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 :)
I will also check and merge them. John Samuel 18:06, 28 March 2018 (UTC)
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!
Duplicate university items
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 for pointing this out. I was using https://tools.wmflabs.org/mix-n-match/#/catalog/943 for creating new items. I have merged two items and checked the remaining (total 8 items). Apparently, there are no other duplicates. ~~~~

Structured Commons - Design feedback request: Multilingual Captions
Hello! You are receiving this message because you signed up for the the community focus group for Structured Data on Wikimedia Commons.
The Structured Data on Commons team has a new design feedback request up for Multilingual Captions support in the Upload Wizard. Visit the page for more information about the potential designs. Discussion and feedback is welcome there.
On a personal note, you'll see me posting many of these communications going forward for the Structured Data project, as SandraF transitions into working on the GLAM side of things for Structured Data on Commons full time. For the past six months she's been splitting time between the two roles (GLAM and Community Liaison). I'm looking forward to working with you all again. Thank you, happy editing.
